Michael Spencer obituary

The Associated Baptist Press has a good obituary for Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk, today.

I never knew him personally, never even corresponded with him. But his writings on his blog have had a profound impact upon my faith over the course of the past several years. His writings were instrumental in helping me come out of the fog of a mid-life faith crisis and take on the new wineskins Christ had been preparing for me: more ancient, more grace-filled, critiquing evangelicalism without completely rejecting it. I can truly say that he was my mentor in many ways even though we never met.

I thank God for his life, and his voice will be sorely missed.
