QUOTE: Steven Prothero on Evangelicals, Jesus and the Bible

"...Evangelicals sort of forget about the doctrinal side of their tradition and the sort of 'intellectual wrestling' side of their tradition and it becomes all about having a relationship with Jesus and loving Jesus. And so you have this generation of evangelicals alive now that are all about loving Jesus, but  they don't know what He had to say, and all about seeking the Bible as the word of God, but really not bothering to read it."

--Steven Prothero, Chairman, Department of Religion, Boston University, on WBUR's "Here and Now" , Sept. 30, 2010.
