Format: Paperback
This was different from what I expected, but still pretty good. In this book Price spends a few chapters discussing common mindsets and beliefs from Evangelical "born again" Christians, then he tries to refute them. Mostly this takes the form of showing that perhaps the bible isn't inerrant because of such as the difference in details / revelation between Mark's gospel and the later ones (showing a progression of myth). He later spends a chapter explaining why perhaps Jesus didn't have a physical resurrection but perhaps was a spiritual one only. Finally the book has some recommendations on moving from an evangelical type of Christianity to one less 'fundamentalist'.

Overall I though it was pretty interesting, because I remember having many of the same attitudes during my fundamentalist period. I'm all for a more tolerant form of Christianity but, I don't really see many evangelicals reading this and changing their mindset.

This book was published only after a friend encouraged Bob to ink it. Glad he did. This is one of Bob's early books while he still considered himself a liberal Christian and I believe while (at least some parts of the book) where written while he was still a pastor in New Jersey. The tone of the book is very different compared to his current ferver on religious subjects. He was much less sarcastic and his tone was more academic as opposed to the polemical attitude he has adopted over the past few years.

Dr. Price's treatment of religious psychology is very astute regarding the evangelical mindset. He takes many conservative biblical scholars to task for the "fortress mentality" which he claims stops believers from understanding the text... Also, Bob's treatment of C.S. Lewis' false trilema (liar, lunitic, or Lord) is worth the read. These are just some highlights.

Worth reading or at least perusing some of the chapters you find interesting...

I am not sure what I expected, but I still enjoy Robert M. Price and his writing style and humor. As much as I think I know about the New Testament, I still learn something from him.
