    I'm not sure if he read the actual "report" himself, I think what he read was this: http://blog.christianitytoday.com/outofur/archives/2007/10/willow_creek_re.html If you listen closely to the wording of this audio blog and read the above linked article, I'm pretty sure that's what he read.

    My respect for Willow Creek just went up as well for their willingness to admit their mistake in their approach of building converts vs. building disciples. It will be interesting to see what they do to remedy the situation. Citing Moreland's speculation on a church full of 'empty selves' is appropriate since that really was what that methodology was creating there and around the country at congregations which patterned their style on the Willow Creek formula. What we do have today is a quite impotent body in America ... our influence in no way reflects our numbers. We have been marginalized by not training disciples who can think and understand why they believe essential doctrines of the faith.

    Well put Bill. This is so important, not just in the USA, but also in New Zealand and elsewhere!
