Evangelical Takes Down Barton

Thanks to Jon Rowe for spotting this post at the American Revolution blog. It’s written by Lindsey Shuman, an evangelical Christian and a grad student in history, and it blasts the pseudo-scholarship of David Barton. Jon leaves a comment that is spot on, noting that there are serious evangelical Christian historical scholars out there whose views deserve to be taken seriously – Mark Noll, George Marsden, Gregg Frazer. Barton is little more than the punchline to a joke to anyone with an education.
