If you’ve read the so-called The Jesus Storybook Bible, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones (no relation to David Martin Lloyd-Jones), you will know it’s not a Bible.
The eisegetical method was obvious all along — to anyone who didn’t take #BigEva to be a credible authority.
The book is a piece of propaganda — a case-study in how to reimagine Bible stories as if they could be made to support social justice tropes not actually present in the source.
If your pastor recommends The Jesus Storybook Bible, you don’t have a shepherd as a pastor; you have a sheep. Sadly, this is the majority of churches.
Consider finding a new church — one led by discerning shepherds.
