Whoopi and Rachel may get into the sister act on The View tomorrow. I think that would be fun to watch. Alas I will not be near a television and so will depend on YouTube or another source for the clip.
Today on the Out of Ur blog Matt Mikalatos offered keen insight into reviewing books. I found his illustrations both telling and important. It is not uncommon to be taken out of context. But, when one is scolded for a lack of context by herself being taken out of context it seems to render the verdict unjustifiable, even if the psychology of disagreement is in tact.
I read a few of the early reviews. I noted posts by Christian Piatt and Jerry Faught. I read Kathy Keller’s piece as well as those by Pete Enns, Ben Witherington 3, and Roger Olsen. Before I comment which way I might go with the book, I find it telling that the reviews seem to track a priori commitments to one’s position on gender roles.
