    Kevin H. is this book fiction or non-fiction? I followed the link to Amazon and the publisher listed the e-book version as Christian sci-fi/ fantasy, but the paperback version as non-fiction Christian living. The publisher has me confused.

    From your review, I think its solidly non-fiction. My assumption is that the publisher made a blunder somewhere… or is trying to get their book into as many categories on Amazon as possible.

    BTW- thanks for sharing about the book.

    EricL,

    The book is non-fiction. Don’t know why the e-book would be listed otherwise. But it’s definitely non-fiction.

    Maybe it’s a ploy by someone who disagrees with the book and wants to call it fiction. You know, kind of like you’ll sometimes see the pictures circulated on social media where someone takes a Joel Osteen book and sticks it directly under a fiction sign in the bookstore. 🙂

    This is an excellent book review…very well done.

    This is well done, Kevin. Never heard of Butler before.

  5. Kevin H says:

    Thanks Michael and Josh.

    Josh, I had never heard of Butler before hearing some good things about this book so I decided to give it a read. I really don’t know anything else about him outside of this book and the brief biographical information given in it. As I already expressed in the review, I found the book quite interesting. And so I thought it was worth writing about.

  6. Josh the Baptist says:

    Very good. I appreciate it.

    2Pet 3:9-13

    i had no use for God until i discovered who He is in Christ, so i’m not declaring from some lofty perch that it is the devil who whispers that we are “victims” of a vengeful god; that whispers in our little pink ears, “the great I AM is a bully and a fraud”

    i will say don’t denigrate your importance on this stage – we all are players; from the greatest to the least, our hearts and our minds are all weighed by the most fair measure imaginable – it is of the Father of lies – the serpent of the Garden who’d make us victims

  8. Em says:

    or is it 2 Pet 3:9-13 … ? … format, Em, format

  9. Josh the Baptist says:

    Sorry this post got swallowed by the Abedrama 🙂

    God doesn’t keep skeletons in His closet. He puts all His “awkward” stuff out front for all of creation to see and read!

  11. Em says:

    amen to Josh the B and JTK… Kevin H has too good a post here to bypass for a domestic “issue”
    in one form or another we will have this moment: Matt 22:41-46 (hope i’ve got that right this time)
    and this one: Isa 6:5

  12. Em says:

    i should have added ‘hopefully’ to the second reference

  13. Kevin H says:

    JTK,

    One of the premises of the book is that God doesn’t have skeletons in his closet. If anyone has them, we are the ones who have them. It’s just that we sometimes think He has them.

  14. Kevin H says:

    No problems with this post being overshadowed. Just the way things go sometimes.

    #1 EricL There is a book called A Skeleton in God’s Closet, which is fiction. Maybe that is what you saw on Amazon.

  16. EricL says:

    DavidM @15, nope. I just clicked the link Kevin H. provided at the top of the article and it came up the e-book version of the book. Scroll down to “Product Details” and it shows its Best Selling Ranking in particular categories in blue- those are fiction categories.

    It’s all inside-baseball, but as a small-time publisher I often look to see what categories other books are selling in. This one has been misplaced, but only for its e-book version. Probably just a data-upload error by the publisher.
