Answering Your Letters: The Backstory to the Open Letter for Rollston

This is but one of a number of letters I’ve received asking the same question:

Dear Jim,

I’m not familiar with what’s happening to Dr. Rollston.  Do you mind explaining?  Like you, I admire his work and can’t understand him being under fire.

Thank You,


So, to Phil and others, the answer to your question can be found in an essay at Bible and Interpretation by Tom Verenna.  If you read this essay, most particularly from the paragraph ending with footnote 3 and following (scroll through to it if you wish to get directly to the point of the situation) you’ll see the reason for my ‘open letter’.  That, in short, and without further ado, is the gist of it.
