It all started last summer. Christopher West appeared on Nightline and mentioned Hugh Hefner and Pope John Paul II in the same sentence. Dr. Alice von Hildebrand then criticized West, saying his approach had become too self-assured, she criticized his presentations as irreverent and insensitive. And so the fun began!

And now, Dawn Eden says.
I suppose it is good that this debate is happening. Dr Alice does have some valid points, but I think that some of her criticisms are too harsh, and at times uncharitable. West has done great work, and reached millions. Not talking "about things", or being "veiled" has one huge problem, no one gets to hear the message. Hopefully West can benefit from the recent critique of his work, and do an even better job!
