Thom Stark's Book, "The Human Faces of God" is Available

Thom Stark's book is The Human Faces of God: What Scripture Reveals When It Gets God Wrong (and Why Inerrancy Tries to Hide It). To read some glowing blurbs see below. I heartily recommend it as well, having seen a digital pre-pub copy. A must read book!

"Christians can ignore the facts that Stark brings into the light of day only if they want to be wrong."
—Dale C. Allison, Jr.
author of Constructing Jesus

"The Human Faces of God is one of the most challenging and well-argued cases against the doctrine of biblical inerrancy I have ever read."
—Greg A. Boyd
author of The Myth of a Christian Nation

"I learned so much from this book that I can strongly encourage anyone who is seeking to move from simplistic proof-texting to a comprehensive understanding of the Bible to read this book carefully."
—Tony Campolo
author of Red Letter Christians

"This is must reading for Christians who have agonized over their own private doubts about Scripture—and for others who have given up hope that evangelical Christians can practice intelligent, moral interpretation of the Bible."
—Neil Elliott
author of Liberating Paul

"[W]ith the help of this book, we may discover that the Bible—when we read it in all its diversity and vulnerability—does bring healing words to those who keep listening."
—Ted Grimsrud
author of Embodying the Way of Jesus

"Stark's book effectively demonstrates how the Bible, in practice, is the most dangerous enemy of fundamentalists."
—James F. McGrath
author of The Only True God

"Stark provides a model for theology that is committed to hearing the voice of the victims of history, especially the victims of our own religious traditions."
—Michael J. Iafrate
PhD Candidate, Toronto School of Theology

"This book is the most powerful antidote to fundamentalism that I've ever read."
—Frank Schaeffer
author of Crazy for God

Thanks, John.

You linked to the Amazon page, which is cool, but it'll be 6-8 weeks before it's fully available there, and the price there is full retail.

Over at wipfandstock.com it is available in whatever quantity and for 20% off of retail (i.e., $23.20).

Truth can not be bought.

How then can Truth be sold?

Truth is free? Where? I've wasted a fortune if that's the case!
