On the Impossibility of Scripture

Peter Enns gives a brief summary of The Bible Made Impossible by Christian Smith.

To summarize, Smith shows how evangelical “biblicism” (his term) crumbles under its own weight, but continues to survive because of its historical role in establishing evangelicalism’s sociological boundary markers.

This is why evangelicals have had a history of bending over backwards to protect their doctrine in the face of clear evidence to the contrary.
