Reviews - What do our customers think?
Must-Read to Understand Today's Christian Scholarship  Aug 12, 2002
This little book is mandatory reading because Barclay is widely cited and hailed as "one of the world's great biblical scholars". His book concisely reflects the sad shape of Christianity and its scholarship today. Barclay states that "For a variety of reasons, it is not possible to hold... that the Bible is literally and, as it were physically, the word of God". He neatly skewers the majority of Christians who hold to weak notions of the inspiration of the Bible. No mid-Acts dispensationalist is surprised that "early sermons do not connect the death of Jesus with the forgiveness of sins", but Barclay obtusely notes his own surprise and marches onward. Barclay's little book is easy-to-read, clearly states his philosophy, and spares the reader his more ponderous other books.
 
I like the good ways that this book points out specifics!  Sep 3, 1999
THis book is very good at poiting out the most important parts of being a christian that are in the bible. I like this book, even though I am reading it for my bible class here at college. Great book!
