Carl Trueman on Blogging

Guy Davies has recently interviewed Carl Trueman. When asked "What, in your estimation are some of the strengths and weaknesses of blogging as a medium for theological reflection?" Trueman promptly responds:

Few strengths. It's all too anarchic. I think fun and information sharing are the best it can do. Weaknesses: feeds narcissism; allows any old nutcase to present themselves as a serious player in theological and ecclesiastical discussion.
I think he may be on to something. I may be that nutcase…
