I have just posted to my own blog
about "Bible deists", as described in the book Surprised by the Voice of God
by Dr Jack Deere. Readers of this blog may recognise the relevance to recent discussions here of some of what I have written, especially:
sometimes this supposedly superior knowledge of the Bible is in fact very superficial, of the fundamentalist kind in which verses are wrenched out of context. Even where lip service is paid to Hebrew and Greek it is clear that the interpretation is in fact dependent on a misleading English translation.
