Interview Series: Tony Carter (Part 2)

September 30, 2009

6) Favorite biography?

The Autobiography of Malcolm X with Alex Haley.  It is a most moving, dramatic, and telling story of the soul of America.  Malcolm is one of the most complex and compelling figures in the last 100 years of American life.  He reminds us of the hate that hate can produce.

7) What will you be speaking on at T4G?

Gospel Unity: Maintaining the Gospel as the Main Thing.  The conference is Together for the Gospel.  What does the Bible have to say about this?  How does the Bible actually illustrate us being together for the sake of the gospel?  How do we reconcile important disagreements with our call for unity in the gospel?

8) Which of the main T4G speakers could you “take to the mat” so to speak?

In his heydey RC was a most accomplished golfer.  I feel quite confident I could beat him now, but back in the day it may have been a different story.  Also, CJ and Thabiti think they can handle the rock a little bit.  But between you and me, I have seen them both and I would have no problem breaking them down and leaving them on the side of the road.

9) Why are you excited about T4G?

Ask me in about 6 months.

10) Anything else we should know or you’d like to say?

Yes.  What course are we playing in Louisville?  When are our tee times?  Should I bring my own clubs?

Thanks, Tony, for your interview. Looking forward to hearing more at T4G.
