The Weekly Hit List: January 20, 2012

We have some exciting news and resources to share in this edition of The Weekly Hit List. To fit it all in, we are dividing this post into three sections:

Around the Web:

“Jesus Creed” blogger “RJS” posted two entries this week referencing Brazos books:
In “Adam in Genesis and Paul,” the blogger looked at some introductory issues explored in Peter Enns‘ new book The Evolution of Adam.
Continuing a series of posts on the book, RJS also looked at John Polkinghorne’s Testing Scripture in a post entitled “Is There Ambiguity in the Bible?”.

Rachel Held Evans began blogging through Christian Smith’s The Bible Made Impossible.
The book was also featured on two other blogs: “Bournagain” and “Nita’s Book Club”.

Three blogs reviewed Miroslav Volf’s A Public Faith:    “Religion in the Balance”, “Journey with Jesus”, and “iCrucified”.

Byron Borger at Hearts & Minds listed his top books of 2011 – including Volf’s A Public Faith and Brian Walsh’s Kicking at the Darkness.

Finally, Peter Enns was mentioned in a Huffington Post article by Brandon Withrow. Enns’ book The Evolution of Adam was also reviewed on the “Disoriented Theology” blog.

Announcing “The Evolution of Adam Blog Tour”

We are excited to announce that The Brazos Blog will be hosting a blog tour for Peter Enns’ new book The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins from Jan. 30th to Feb. 3rd.

During that week, we have enlisted some wonderful bloggers to review and interact with this important book. As these bloggers post about the book, we will be linking their reviews on this site (and possibly hosting a few blog entries ourselves!). We will also be giving away copies of The Evolution of Adam and other titles.

Check here next Wednesday for more details on the book giveaway and a full list of participants.
