The Weekly Hit List: March 15, 2012

On the “Jesus Creed” blog, RJS posted the final blog entry of a series on Peter Enns’s The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins.

In a post titled “So How Then Should We Think About Adam?,” RJS concludes:

“The last two paragraphs of the concluding chapter are in many ways the best part of the book, a confession of faith and a vision of hope for the future.  Buy the book to read them (and the rest). The Evolution of Adam is not the last word on any of the questions of Adam, evolution, sin, or death. But it is an important contribution to the discussion.”

In case you missed it, the good folks at ‘Homebrewed Christianity’ posted a podcast interview with Peter Enns on The Evolution of Adam. It is a great discussion, and you can listen to the entire thing here.

Speaking of good folks, The Englewood Review of Books posted a review of The Evolution of Adam. Read it here.

Recently featured in the Patheos.com Book Club, Arthur Boers’s Living Into Focus: Choosing What Matters in an Age of Distractions has garnered a lot of attention. Here are some recent blog reviews:

Kurt Willems – “Watching Our Distractions”

“Happy Little Homemaker” Blog - ‘Living Into Focus  {Book Review}’

Carl Gregg – “‘Sorry I’ve Been Busy!’ How to Bring Your Life Back Into Focus”
