The Mike Tyson of evangelical publishing

"Meanwhile, I don't suppose I'm missing out on a lot of sales to readers of World, which I once described as 'an angry, fierce magazine with a hard-to-believe veneer of sweetness — the Mike Tyson of evangelical publishing.' But in the spirit of interfaith dialogue, I'll nonetheless offer a few corrections in the same gentle spirit in which Marvin teases that I 'yearn for dominating power.' Hmm. Actually, that's kind of kinky. I'll stick to the straight facts. I'm vanilla that way." (Sept. 6, 2008, Jeff Sharlet, The Revealer)
