In the post regarding my endorsing a book by Tim Keller, some friends thought my tone rather snarky, as if I was offended that the book’s publisher used my endorsement without my permission (i.e. “How dare they!”). I told them that that wasn’t my intent. Indeed, my surprise was more that I was included as an endorser at all, not that my endorsement was published without my foreknowledge.
So just to be clear: I’m not upset with the book’s publisher, and I’m happy they used my endorsement–even without giving me a heads-up.
Later this week: A completely different (and substantial) post that doesn’t contain the word “endorse” or smack of self promotion.
