Pulpit plagiarism

with 2 comments

The blokes over at the Gospel Coalition are discussing the topic of pulpit plagiarism (Carson and Wilson thus far). (And Keller.) (And Perman.)

In a move of quite unexpected and unusual prescience, I dealt with this issue in a post on ministerial magpies a little while ago.

Or maybe it wasn’t prescience. It could be that they are simply copying me . . .

FURTHER THOUGHT: You might want a preacher to make something fresh; would you ever want him to say something new?

    • Is that related to the “a man who never quotes others will never be quoted himself” quote?
