I was pretty certain that Kenneth Woodward hadn’t read my book, and in an interview just concluded, he confirmed as much.
We also went over his New York Times piece in detail. The interview will air in hour three, and a transcrip will be posted here later.
Woodward’s a jovial enough fellow –a St. Ignatius grad and a Cleveland Indians and Browns fan to boot– and a long time religion writer, but I think he badly misjudges how his piece comes across to Mormons and non-Mormons alike.
I hope Lowell and John from Article VI Blog take the time to do an annotated edition of the Woodward interview.
