“Peter Enns has written a great book about The Book. If you’ve ever struggled with the violent or contradictory or just plain strange passages in the Bible, this book is for you . . . And he’s funny.” — Rob Bell, author of Love Wins
“Cross a stand-up comic, a robust theological mind, a college professor, and a decent normal guy, and what do you get? Peter Enns. And what does he write? A super-enjoyable, highly informative, disarmingly honest, and downright liberating book. The message of this book needs to get out. Fast.” — Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
“Stop what you’re doing and read this book! Challenging, compelling, and delightfully readable, The Bible Tells Me So, is a game-changer. Enns releases scripture from the cage we’ve built for it and then teaches us to love it for what it is, not what we try to make it. Every Christian should read this book.” –Rachel Held Evans, author of Faith Unravelled and Searching for Sunday
“The question of how to read, inwardly digest, and eventually ‘live’ the Bible is probably the most divisive one among Christians today. The shock of Enns’s The Bible Tells Me So, then, is either the simplicity and clarity of its answer to that question or else the humor and confessional belief with which the answer is offered. This is a book that every Christian will be the better and richer for having read.” — Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
“Peter Enns has emerged as one of the stars of biblical interpretation for thinking Christians. With writing that is winsome, readable, and non-intimidating, he cuts a path between wooden literalism and faithless liberalism, giving us a way to read the Bible that is both faithful and intellectually credible.” — Tony Jones, theologian-in-residence at Solomon’s Porch and the author of Did God Kill Jesus?
“In The Bible Tells Me So, Peter Enns addresses the problems of scripture form the position of an evangelical Christian who observes with candor and fresh humor that too often faithful readers approach the Bible with expectations it is not set up to meet.” — Publishers Weekly
