Collin Hansen has recently posted his “Editor’s Choice: Best of 2014” list over at The Gospel Coalition, highlighting the 10 best resources of the year. I was very encouraged to see that he has included my recent review of Peter Enn’s book The Bible Tells Me So (HarperOne, 2014).
That review was one of the longest I have written in some time (almost ten pages in a Word file), and I am grateful that TGC published the full version. Enns’ book has had a wide influence, so a thorough response needed to be widely distributed.
Here is what Collin had to say:
Reviewing bad books may not be fun, but it is necessary. The right reviewer know where and how to poke holes in an author’s presentations when many readers don’t know any better. That’s why I’m thankful that such gifted scholars as Kruger take the time to read and critique misleading books. So long as publishers continue to push books they know will attract a lot of attention for rejecting biblical teaching, we’ll continue to need teachers who take the opportunity to shore up any historical and theological weaknesses they expose.
If you haven’t had a chance to read the original review, you can check it out here.
Donna Robertson says
Clear thinking seems to be scarce nowdays. Since it is so rare, it is rather difficult to rcognize it when it appears.
Thank God for Michael Kruger, who took the time to respond to Enns’ book, “The Bible Tells Me So” in a clear, informed manner.
Let us pray that those who seek the truth about God’s word will see and read it with seeking minds, open to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
