A number of weeks ago, Gina alerted us to Randall Stephens and Karl Giberson's New York Times article, in which the two professors claimed that (conservative) evangelical leaders were anti-intellectuals because they had the temerity to disagree with secularists in certain areas.
Being pretty savvy professors, they used their salvo for dual purposes: giving a "stinging critique of many evangelical leaders," and promoting their new book The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age. The book is surely going to get plenty of accolades by secularists and I'm sure some Christians.
In an aside, one thing that should be startling to most of us is the idea that these educated Christian professors deny the reality of really horrible beings and places like Satan, Hell, and presumably angels. I've not read their book yet, but I am keen to understand where that leaves God the Son (Emmanuel, Jesus Christ) and a place like Heaven.
