Presbyterian publisher tackles 9/11 conspiracy
How seriously should we take the idea that the 9/11 attacks look like an inside job?
Very seriously, says a publishing arm of the Presbyterian Church USA. "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11" by David Ray Griffin, the noted 9/11 critic and theologian, is being published by Westminster John Knox Press, a division of Presbyterian Publishing.
Jack Keller, a vice president of the publishing house, told Christianity Today that Griffin raised some "interesting questions" that warranted attention. The publisher has printed a number of Griffin's theological works over the years but Griffin's previous 9/11 books were published elsewhere.
One scholar questioned by Christianity Today attributed the church publisher's decision to publish Griffin to an anti-Israel bias.
