"LifeWay Christian Stores, the Southern Baptist–owned U.S. retailer, plans to drop its controversial "Read with Discernment" program.
The program, which began in 2007, listed popular authors such as Rob Bell, Donald Miller, Brian McLaren, and William Young, who the chain said "may have espoused thoughts, ideas, or concepts that could be considered inconsistent with historical evangelical theology".......

'I understand why they did it," one pastor said. "They had to find a way to get some people off their back in order to be able to sell books.'....."
