Ask Scot McKnight…


by Rachel Held Evans Read Distraction Free

There are few modern-day biblical scholars who have influenced me more than Scot McKnight. His Jesus Creed blog was one of the first I followed religiously, and books like The Blue Parakeet, The King Jesus Gospel, and A Community Called Atonement remain among some of my most recommended.  A professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary in Lombard, Illinois, Scot is a world-renowned scholar, writer, and speaker. He is the author or editor of fifty books and he writes and curates of one of the most popular evangelical blogs on the Internet.

On a personal note, Scot has gone out of his way to encourage and help me as a writer and Christ-follower, often including me in theological conversations that many other credentialed theologians might think me unqualified to join. The man's also got a great, quirky sense of humor. 

Scot’s newest book, Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church is already making waves, and in light of that, I’ve invited Scot to be a guest for our ongoing “Ask a…” series. 

You know the drill. If you have a question for Scot, leave it in the comment section. (Note: We’re only considering questions from the comment section here on the blog, not from Facebook or Twitter.) At the end of the day, I’ll choose 6-7 of the most popular or interesting questions to send to Scot for response. Be sure to take advantage of the “like” feature so we can get a sense of which questions are of most interest to readers. Look for Scot’s responses next week. 

Ask away!
