Responding to Newsweek’s article on the Bible…


by Rachel Held Evans Read Distraction Free

Here’s the original article by Kurt Eichenwald, which you should definitely read in its entirety before criticizing

I wrote a post for CNN responding to what I believe were the article’s sweeping generalizations and hyperbolic caricatures of evangelicals

This post by Daniel Wallace does a good job looking at some of the textual issues at hand, but I also appreciate what Pete Enns says in his response, where he argues that Eichenwald’s piece was “naïve, over-the-top and basically right.” 

Gives us lots to think about! 

What did you think of the Newsweek piece? (Note: If you didn’t bother to read it, please don’t bother commenting! That’s a huge pet peeve of mine, having encountered multiple reviews of my own books written by people who admit they didn't even read them first.)
