Book Review: Christine Rosen’s “My Fundamentalist Education”

I haven’t read the book (yet?), but here’s a review from the Wall Street Journal of My Fundamentalist Education:

Christine Rosen’s complaints about Christian fundamentalism are mainly aesthetic ones.

Anyone read or heard about this one? Be forewarned: Amazon’s “customers who bought this book also bought” list includes:

  • Misquoting Jesus : The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why by Bart Ehrman
  • From Jesus to Christianity : How Four Generations of Visionaries & Storytellers Created the New Testament and Christian Faith by L. Michael White
  • The Sins of Scripture : Exposing the Bible’s Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love by John Shelby Spong
  • Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel
  • The Republican War on Science by Chris Mooney

Not exactly people who are open-minded about Christianity and Christians…

    I heard the author on NPR and she was quite balanced, talking about the benefits (as well as problems with) of her education. I would suggest that the list is generated from folks expecting something different from her book.
