Head over to Warren Throckmorton’s blog and listen to Eric Metaxas mock me on his radio program for my 6-part critique of his book. He and Ann Coulter have a good laugh over the fact that there are errors in their recent books.
Here is Metaxas:
There are errors in my book and people have written ESSAYS–I’m not even kidding. People have attacked my book so much. This never happened to me before. They take a sentence that I could just change that sentence and everything would be okay. They have written ESSAYS about this sentence. I said something about freedom in our early days, implying that it was universal, which of course it was not (we had a lot of problems with religious freedom)–peoplek have written essays and essays. Some guy wrote a 6-part blog thing, 4000 words criticizing my book. There’s another thing–oh–that I misinterpret John Winthrop when he says that we are a shining city on a hill–Jesus’s words–and he says I misinterpreted them. In fact, I did not misinterpret it. But even if I had it is not worth and ESSAY correcting me
To get the full effect (and the sarcasm and smugness in Metaxas’s voice) you really need to LISTEN to the exchange with Coulter. It is only about one minute long.
