Rachel Held Evans wants to love God with her mind

I thought this was--as usual--a thoughtful and very frank piece from Rachel Held Evans. She's not quite writing about evolution, though the topic does come up, but is really trying to draw attention to the difficulties of trying to love God with one's mind in American evangelicalism.

I'm reminded of the opening line from Mark Noll's The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, to which it sounds like (perhaps ironically, here) Al Mohler would object: "The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind."

Check out the post over on RHE.
