  1. I can’t wait to read it. All of us need a firm foundation under our feet. To build on sand or to build upon a firm foundation.

    The Word of God will stand.

    Excellent review. I’m reading it as well. Michael Patton (our other favorite Michael) has made good solid theology accessible to the lay person. Although everyone is a theologian this book will help you become a better one. BTW I loved the comparison you made of being “somewhere in the middle remark”. lol.

    Good to see you, Puzzletop!
    I think this book is going to be around a long time…

    Thank you for this recommendation Michael. Moved to the top of the reading list. With so much info out there it seems overwhelming. Thank you for steering your readers to the main and plain things..

    Michael’s Credo House offers a whole theology course via iPad or iPhone for about ten dollars.

    I’ll stick with the Bible, this is just another in a long line of books most Christians won’t even read. As long as we got our holy scriptures we will be fine. I never even heard of the author. Who is to say his version of what being a Christian is is right on?

  8. Midnight,
    So are you saying that you don’t study under anyone? It’s just you and your Bible?

    When you do this, do you do it it the original languages so that you are not influenced by any particular person or committees bias?

    I always find lone ranger christians to be an interesting breed.
