Frankly, I have found men like Dever, Mohler, and Piper to handle disagreements far better than many of their admirers in fundamentalist circles [and those not in fundamentalist circles -MRJ]. Read some of Piper’s footnotes, Al Mohler’s web commentaries, or listen to Mark Dever do interviews. Watch them interact with one another in public contexts. I have had straightforward interactions with each of them and never found them put off by it. They understand the importance of truth, the value of direct communication, and do so without taking it as personal. They know that there is a distinction between the individual and his ideas—you can reject the latter without insulting the former.
