The Limits of Rational Orthodox Theology?

Rabbi Natan Slifkin has started a new blog, Rationalist Judaism. He's already faced considerable opposition from the OrthoFundie crowd, and I expect that he will eventually encounter an onslaught of challenges from the SkeptiYid world as well. It will be quite interesting to see how far he can take rationalism and still remain firmly entrenched in the Doxic world.

A cogent, intelligent comment as usual Professor Stein.

JP - have you actually read any of his books? He quotes many gedolim of the past that you hold dear in support of his views.

All you know about him is the ban on his books from current gedolim that were told things about the book bt never read it themselves.
