Some Intellectual Disruption

Thought game: how would someone go about disrupting Crazy Towel Guy? - Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

Clayton Christensen makes you think about things in completely different ways.

One of Coach K's recruiting principles is to look closely at the family, so it's no surprise to see so many players come from strong ones. Think of Calvin and Janet Hill, Bob Hurley, the Langdons, the Capels, the Dunleavys, Chris Carawell's mom, the Battiers - you can go on and on and on.

Still, it's hard to find a Duke parent more interesting than Clayton Christensen, whose son Matt carved out a great role as a backup center.

We have the greatest admiration for his work on the concept of business disruption, and we admire him extravagantly for saying "I’d rather play basketball than eat."

But this article is about his faith and his journey towards stronger faith.

Faith informs his life and his brilliant work. It's just interesting to see a fairly private side of a gifted thinker.
