The Funniest (In the Sense of Most Absurd) Advert Email I’ve Yet Received

I won’t mention the publisher, because generally they do pretty good work.  But this… this commendation… is just so absurd.

This month also brought the release of the long-awaited next book by Peter Leithart, Delivered from the Elements of the World. According to James K. A. Smith, “When you read Peter Leithart, you suddenly realize how timid most Christian theologians are, tepidly offering us a few ‘insights’ to edify our comfort with the status quo. Leithart is like a lightning strike from a more ancient, more courageous Christian past, his flaming pen fueled by biblical acuity and scholarly rigor.”

BAhahahahahahahahahahhahahahhaha. Not.

A Question for the Media

Which of your religion reporters actually has a degree in biblical studies or theology?  @NPR, @CBS, @NBC, @RNS, @ABC, @Foxnews.  Do any of them?  I ask because it honestly doesn’t seem that they do.  Any of them.

I mean, it’s ok with me if they don’t.  But I think they should say right up front ‘I don’t know what I’m talking about when I offer my views on matters related to Christianity or Judaism or Islam and you should know it’.  That info needs to be in their byline.
