TBTMSThe release of my upcoming book The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It is now less than a month away, and I know many of you–millions of you, perhaps billions, who can really tell after all?–are experiencing all sorts of emotional and physical symptoms while waiting to get your hands on it.

To help prevent permanent injury or lengthy hospital stays, HarperOne has just made available an excerpt of the book on Scribd.

Included in the excerpt are the table of contents and a portion of chapter 2, “God Did What?!” where I look at the always troubling, never comfortable, issue of God ordering the extermination of the Canaanites.
