I am an unapologetic fan and defender of Rick Warren. He is one of my personal heroes and mentors (from a distance). There are few pastors and disciples I have more respect for than Rick. There are many issues — both theological and political — that I disagree with him on (for example, women in ministry, etc). But the fact that I disagree with Rick on some things doesn’t mean I can’t respect him, learn from him, etc.
This is a great interview… check it out.
