As an historian and a Bible believer, I respect Pastor Bonhoeffer, how he lived as an unwavering Christian in Nazi Germany, and how he gave his life for his Lord.
This book, however, is simply a commentary on the Sermon on the Mount. He makes some very good points, and it is worth the listen, but I expected something different.
A great primer on conservative thought and why we think and believe what we do. My only complaint is that Levin didn't read it himself.
I love James Earl Jones. The man has an amazing voice. I also love listening to him read scripture as it is very soothing. As someone who knows the King James Bible, I did hear some uncorrected errors.
This is an amazing piece. Considering it was recorded over 50 years ago, the quality is pretty good. I highly recommend it.
One of the first things he says is that the Bible is not God's Word, so it is dishonest for him to call his book "God and Sex." Secondly, he looks for sexual innuendo in the Bible where there is none to try to prove his points.
Guess what, Dr. Coogan, yes "feet" in ancient Israel could have been a reference to sexual organs, but guess what??? Feet can also mean feet!!!! What a revelation. Dying at someone's feet (Judges 5:25-27) doesn't mean that the person was killed while having sex! Yes, listener, this is the kind of laughable foolishness you will hear in this book.
This book was mistitled, a bait and switch. Instead of hearing what the Bible says about sex, I get to listen to a Bible-denier try to use the Bible to justify sin.
I implore fellow Christians NOT to waste your money or credits on this tripe. I want my credit back!!
It was once said by a former socialist presidential candidate that while America might never accept socialism itself, America will accept every tenet of socialism under the guise of progressivism.
Beck is dead on (and funny).
This book is on the mark. The reader will be quite interested to see the philosophic/literary road that lead us where we are today. Fascinating and enlightening. Highly recommended.
