Is the Gospel Coalition on its way down?

With Harris, Mahaney, Driscoll, and Tchividjian's disenchantmentm, one might conclude that the Gospel Coalition is more about bad news than good news.

What are your thoughts?  Is this simply a ripple or are the foundations beginning to crumble?


Yes, I think things are falling apart seriously

I think the GC will be a little smaller and a little less influential, but still a force to be reckoned with

No, this is the sort of thing that happens in any high profile organization

IMO there are many others in T4G that are very popular that will fill the void.

What, precisely, would we be missing if TGC disappeared tomorrow? Other than perhaps hosting conferences and providing a blogging platform for a lot of high profile folks, what does it actually accomplish? In other words, why should we even care if TGC disappeared? 

I am being serious. I'm not trying to be rude or snide. 

Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and works in State government. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist?

I can only answer that question for myself but I find there to be a helpful collection of resources on their website. Granted most of it would still be available but it would be harder to track down.

Their web site (and conference, the one time I attended) are/were tremendously helpful to me.
