Comments on misreading the Bible


Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible - Commute reading.

Takes square aim at Baptist/Calvary Chapel/nondenom evangelical groupthink.

Outside of that (rather large) group, some of the critiques start to miss (particularly if your particular group has a decent grasp of church history or other cultures). I'd place it solidly into what I think of as College Freshman books: designed to jolt the ignorant & shake presumptions, but without deep depth or nuances in any specific area.

Worth a read, but I wish I had a library I could have borrowed it from instead of buying it.
