53. Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans
Rachel Held Evans examines the Bible according to all of the genres it’s composed of pointing out how it is not one static book but many different types of documents written at many different times and brought together. Through some of the Bible’s most popular stories she looks at how the type of document each book is informs it’s message and makes the Bible the living, breathing book it is today. This was an excellent book. As always Rachel Held Evans’ writing helped restore my faith in the face of so many things in “cultural Christianity” that work to destroy it. I give it a 9 out of 10.
