The current media cause celebre is apostate blogger/writer, Rachel Held Evans, who recently published her Bible-hating book, A Year of Biblical Womanhood, in which Evans “attempts” to live out what the Bible says about women in a literal fashion for an entire year. Of course, her conclusion is that such a thing is ridiculous and silly and so Christians shouldn’t seriously consider the Bible as a divinely inspired book that provides direction for a person’s life. More to the point, we should never think the Bible has anything relevant to say about the sexes, particularly male and female roles in family and church.
Figuring there will be a number of readers looking for some reaction and review of her work, I thought I would highlight some responses to her.
Then Denny Burk’s thoughts on Evans’ appearance on the Today Show where she talks about her book.
Added 10/30/12 – Kathy Keller’s review at the TGC site.
Added 11/1/12 Joe Carter goes hammer and tongs on Evan’s book.
Added 11/2/12 Doug Wilson, who probably doesn’t really count to Evans’ fans because he is such a meany sexist, provides his pithy remarks.
If and when more come up, I’ll try to link them.
