Plotz, David
Deputy director of the online magazine Slate. Plotz started a series called "Blogging the Bible" in which he reads the Bible straight through and offers reader-response comments. His reactions are no less than what we would expect from someone without any knowledge of the defining social, lingustuic, historical, etc. backgrounds of the text.

To his credit he admits he is not an expert, but it remains that this is a thoroughly irresponsible presentation. He has offered little or nothing we have not already covered in the past here, so we deem him worthy of no more than this note.
