Inexcusably Dumb Hermeneutics
Joe Carter, Patheos
If you’ve been anywhere near the evangelical blogosphere lately you’ve probably heard that Rachel Held Evans finally published A Year of Biblical Womanhood, her lame Christianized knock-off of a silly stunt-book produced five years ago. I’ve read enough of Evans’ blog to know she has a low view of scripture, so I’m not much interested in hearing a book-length treatment of how silly she finds the Bible [Update: I broke down and bought a copy on Kindle. My thoughts are below]. But I am interested in the reactions to the book.
One of the best is the open-letter/review by Kathy Keller. I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that Keller’s is one of the best book reviews I’ve ever read.
