As many of you know by now, Alan Jacobs has written an excellent essay on Christian intellectuals in the current tissue of Harper’s Magazine. It is titled “The Watchmen: What Became of the Christian Intellectuals.” I hope to do some posts on the piece very soon here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home. Stay tuned.
Twitter has been abuzz with commentary on Jacobs’s article and Jacobs himself has joined the conversation. I have Storified as many tweets as possible here. (They are listed in chronological order and I have not commented on any of them in the story. I did my best to capture some of the key threads, but my collection is certainly not comprehensive).
Some of the tweets are helpful. Others are snarky. Some are disrespectful. Others are wise and insightful. I will let you decide which tweets fit into which category! 🙂
