Trillia Newbell hits the nail on the head with regard to Rachel Held Evans's book A Year of Biblical Womanhood. It sounds, from this excellent review, that the book should actually be called The Bible on Trial, with Rachel Held Evans as Judge and Jury.
There will be many more reviews coming along soon, and as Newbell points out, those who applaud it will be the ones who already tend to share her views.
Here's a snippet:
Evans claims to be caught between conservative and liberal theology. She believes in the physical resurrection of Christ, and she believes in evolution. But in seeking to bridge conservative and liberal theology in this book, she invests so much time explaining what she does not believe, that readers will be left wondering exactly what she does believe.
