An excellent assessment of how scripture is often misunderstood and misapplied. Smith is on target with his Christ centered approach to the Bible. I found myself highlighting much of the text and my heart and mind were resonating with affirming "Amens" to the content of this thought provoking book. Incredible!

the title is a real turn off. "Why Biblicism Is Not a Truly Evangelical Reading of Scripture"? seriously? how can reading the bible not be evangelical when being evangelical (in a Christian sense) cam from the Holy Bible? take it from a Christian that actually reads the Holy Bible: this book is flawed just from its title.
