The material is good stuff from good thinkers & writers. However, the narration is poor, not appropriate for the particular contributors. It just kills the whole experience.
How bad do we all miss Mike?
There is no way to listen to this and not get emotional. What a great book.
This is some of the poorest scholarship I believe I've seen since Joel Osteen. About half of his claims are simple miscontext and the other could be divided among taking an antagonistic view of all things scripture & the "late date" hermenutic.
Save your money. This guy is a hack.
It has been said that true inteligence is being able to understand a position without accepting it. In that spirit I've read this book several times and listened to it several more.
Verdict: I am deeply disapointed that such a great writer and thinker has gone off in this direction. It's compelling and gets plenty of conversations going, but at the end of the day it's just herecy in it's pure form. There is no continuity in the idea that "God gets what God wants" in the end! Biblically, this proposition is contradicted in Revelation 20:11as Satan and his demons are cast into outer darkness in judgment, along with death and Hades.
Very well read and written.
Sadly, it is heretical doctrine that will lead many to confusion and ultimate ruin. That's a sad thing.
