The Encyclopedia of Christian Civilization that Wiley-Blackwell approved to print is, on second thought, “too Christian,” according to Edward Feser’s report at National Review Online . After receiving outside pressure, they took sudden action to “postpone publication, recall all copies already distributed, and destroy the existing print run.” Feser says the ” work was deemed too theologically conservative and orthodox” for the publisher’s comfort and that the book’s critics want words like Resurrection and Evangelism deleted from the publication; they “also want the insertion of material denigrating Christianity in some form or fashion.”

Stopping the print run is a pretty expensive ordeal—and, from what I gather, it’s one that will prove hardly worthwhile.
