Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great and Important Story, could be more focused  Jan 4, 2008
I'm not a baptist, and before reading this book knew that there had been a controversy in the SBC but didn't know any of the details. As one of the key players, Pressler knew the inside story and does a good job of presenting it in this book. I came away thankful for how this denomination was able to fight off the encroachment of liberalism and for the men who worked so hard to bring this about. This is an important story that anyone who is interested in the modern history of the church should read.

Some weaknesses are that Pressler spends a lot of time on details of his life not relevant to the controversy, and that when he does deal with the controversy he at times seems pretty defensive (but perhaps there are good reasons why!).
An inspiring book that is a must read...  Apr 21, 2006
Having read this starting yesterday, I'm halfway through this book. It's is a definite page-turner. The Lord had certainly blessed Paul Pressler with the giftedness to see liberalism for what it was and still is, the courage to stand up to it, the wisdom to strategize courses of actions, and the networking of friends, colleagues and rivals on both sides of the theological camp, while remaining focused to the heart of the matter - the truth of the Gospel and the salvation of souls.

Currently living in liberal Bay Area where conservative Christianity is muted or mutated by postmodern secularists, atheists, agnostics, pantheists, liberals, New Agers, Buddhists, etc. and where a number of Southern Baptist churches are pastored by women, dually-aligned with liberal Baptist denominations, and simply doctrinally shallow, I read the story of Paul Pressler with great admiration and inspiration.
Pressler Embarrasses Self & SBC  Dec 13, 2002
Paul Pressler embarrasses himself in this disgraceful memoir. The story of his "decision" to turn down President Bush's offer of a government post is laughable in it's inaccuracy. This is just one example of Pressler's egomaniacal and self delusive re-interpretation of his own history. He exemplifies everything that non-Baptists falsely believe are typical of the Southern Baptist Convention, to it's shame.
A Narrow View of the Christian Faith  Sep 7, 2001
Judge Pressler's views in "A Hill On Which to Die..." though may be sincere, lacks the breadth of theological understanding of the various expressions of Christianity. Pressler, like many Fundamentalists, fail to accept that much of our understanding of scripture and theological concepts are interpretations and very few of the arguments that he is willing to die for would effect salvific truth. Every sincere believer and every denomination thinks in one way or another they have the "correct" view and interpretation. The problem is not believing. Pressler is correct in his argument that one must stand firm in one's belief. However, his failure in the book is the adequate display of the fact that Christianity, even among faithful Southern Baptists, is broader than the narrow views which he holds. His concepts of Christianity would undoubtedly reject the Christianity of C. S. Lewis (Anglican), J. I. Packer (Anglican), Eugene Peterson (Presbyterian), Mother Theresa (Roman Catholic), and the vast majority of both main line and evangelical Christianity. For these reasons and others, I would not recommend this book.
Sorry!  Feb 19, 2001
This book has an "I" problem. The Judge repeatedly uses "I" did..., "I" thought..., "I" knew ..., "I".... It seems egotistical, judgmental - and paranoid. We have experienced the whole thing, first hand...he puts a lot of spins on the truth! Christian love doesn't do things this way!
