USA Today referenced Dr. Paul Louis Metzger and M.Div alum Tony Kriz in today's opinion blog. The article, written by Tom Krattenmaker, is titled:

"It makes one wonder if these churches' leaders think Jesus was a savvy entrepreneur on the rise, who would have become rich had his career not been cut short."
