Abstract:

In Chapter and Verse: A Skeptic Revisits Christianity, Mike Bryan, a lapsed Protestant and "shaky atheist" on the religious left, enrolls as a student at Criswell College in Dallas, a leading Southern Baptist Bible college on the religious right. Rather than easily lampooned fundamentalist ignorance, he discovers, for the most part, a serious, intelligent Christian faith profoundly embarrassed by the shenanigans of Jimmy Swaggart and the Bakkers. His book is a fresh examination of this evangelical culture and an analysis of the clash between genuine Christian faith and the de facto unbelief of the secular world, both of which pose confusions and tensions for their adherents.
