A Year of Rachel Held Evans Womanhood

Justin Taylor does what he can to puncture the bubble surrounding Rachel Held Evans’ book A Year of Biblical Womanhood:

Evangelicals, like Trillia Newbell, have been less than impressed. “In this book Evans is trying to build a bridge, but I wonder if it is not rather a comfortable bridge for shaky evangelicals to find their way into theological liberalism.” Even one secular-postmodern-feminist writer saw through the gimmicky nature of the project and judged that the whole thing ended up making a “mockery” of the Bible.

He includes a link to a lengthy review of the book by Kathy Keller, in which I think she takes the book more seriously than Evans took her subject.
