In Which I Ask Ann Voskamp's Forgiveness...

Authors are people too: In Which I Ask Ann Voskamp's Forgiveness... | Challies Dot Com:
I did poorly here and I can see that I need to grow in my ability to critique the ideas in a book even while being kind and loving to its author. There was reason for the shame I felt when I saw that name in my inbox. I had put effort into reading the book and understanding and critiquing it, but no real effort into showing love and respect for the author. I had assumed poor motives and in arrogance and thoughtlessness had squelched useful discussion of the book’s strengths and weaknesses.
