Have to agree with Dan
Even for some books that I liked, some of the reviews were fair commentaries.

Jason,
Good points.
The idea of reading courses as an alternative to prison seems to stem from the idea of conflating intelligence and virtue which is as iniquitous an idea as doing the same with strength or physical beauty.
Actually, I find myself in agreement with some of the one star reviewers. There are quite a few "important" books that are barely readable.
Reading courses as an alternative to prison? Er...if criminals are going to be criminals, don't we want them to stay dumb? Isn't it the smart ones that make the most trouble?
More myths by Christianity Today
"Exodus 20:7 tells us, "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain" (ESV).

For many of us, this commandment means, "Don't cuss." It does—but it means so much more than that."

Really Ms. Hemingway? This verse means "don't cuss"? How so?

I will admit, this is certainly the poor Biblical scholarship seen in Christianity today.
