Former evangelical perspective on historical criticism

There's a tendency in some circles to ignore "weird" stuff in the Bible that might raise difficulties with traditional evangelical theological views. Peter Enns is a biblical scholar who got fired in 2008 from his job teaching at a prominent evangelical seminary. In this post, Enns argues that serious study of Biblical texts will lead invariably to historical questions. These historical questions often bring up issues that are awkward/heretical when viewed from a traditionally evangelical perspective.
