The Weekly Hit List – September 9, 2011

For our first installment of The Weekly Hitlist, we have a lot of ground to cover. We have several recent releases that have made an impact on online discussions and that have been featured on various websites.

Miroslav Volf’s A Public Faith has gotten some much-deserved attention.

The Huffington Post gave the book a positive review last month and just yesterday Volf wrote a piece entitled, “Did 9/11 Make Us Morally ‘Better’?”.

For those of you who read Christianity Today, look for a review in the September issue!

Scot McKnight ran a series of posts on The Bible Made Impossible:
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8

Scot then responded to some of the harsh critiques posed at the book.

The book inspired another interesting discussion at First Things:
Peter Leithart’s review
Christian Smith’s response

As we mentioned in a previous post, Lee C. Camp wrote a piece for’s ‘Remembering 9/11’ series entitled “Is Christian Just War Just Like Jihad?”

You can catch Lee on this Sunday’s episode of Darkwood Brew.

Finally, last week USA Today ran a piece on John Polkinghorne entitled, “Why Certainty about God is Overrated”.
