Arthur Boulet's Review of Kenton Sparks's 'God's Word in Human Words'

This excerpt from Arthur Boulet's review of God's Word in Human Words is thought-provoking:
If the evangelical answer continues to be fideism or pretending that the “problems” do not exist, then the laypeople, seminarians, and graduate students who are approached with the strength of these issues are left without a paradigm or hermeneutical method that can account for both data produced by biblical critics and the faith they hold. Their “liberal” views or their “falling from faith” are not the necessary conclusions of critical biblical scholarship but the necessary conclusions of evangelicals’ negligence not only to deal with the data of biblical criticism but also to integrate it with their theology.
Also interesting is Boulet's affiliation with Westminster Theological Seminary, though he is evidently not on faculty there.

He's a student at Westminster, and as you undoubtedly know, when student members of SBL write reviews for RBL, the institution they attend is given as their affiliation.
