I have tried and tried to like this author, but I am done. He claims to be presenting arguments for both sides of a question, but his arguments tend to be fallacious, circular, dualistic, reductionist, and filled with apologetics. There is an "aw, shucks," shifty character to his writing that likely lulls many readers into complacency, but his self interest is clearly that he makes his money selling books to present and former evangelicals. If he would present a convincing argument to step outside institutional Christianity, he would lose his audience. If he would be honest about all of this, I could tolerate him. Instead, he comes off like a cheap hustler.
