THE ARTICLE in the January-February 1998 issue by Dale Aukerman ("The Heart of Faith") is powerful and direct, but its 16-cylinder vocabulary, pronouns with unclear antecedents, and run-on sentences tags it for the intellectual elite (i.e. the first two sentences of the last paragraph, where crucial statements are made). I have seen other theologically simple ideas reduced to intellectual oblivion in your magazine.
Unfortunately, that's par for too many theologians. This is one reason Rush Limbaugh books sell to the 90 percent of us lower-class folks, and yours do not. You're hiding your words in the bushes. Get real, editors and writers of Sojourners. Talk straight. And God bless you for your solid understandings of the Christian faith for us who work and live among the 90 percent.
