Invasion of the Bible Snatchers

The Bible is often used by pop-apologists as nothing more than a prop, a tool that serves only the purpose of producing converts. But the biblical texts are far more complicated than those pop-apologists know and often in their reading of those texts they commit serious exegetical blunders. Arguably, what they write looks like exegesis and even sounds like exegesis but in reality it is eisegesis masquerading as exegesis. So my ongoing series Invasion of the Bible Snatchers deals with the issues caused by the eisegetical work of pop-apologists who think that there is advanced scientific knowledge to be found in the pages of the Bible. I hope one day to turn this series into a book but for now these blog posts will have to do.
