This book reads like a college text-book. Long, detailed, a bit slanted toward the author’s own beliefs and the wording seems to be aimed at professors not mere students.
The book is rich with information to prove the validity of the Bible, uses multiple acronyms to remember the major and minor points that he brings out, and has over sixty pages of notes and selected bibliography all in small print.
I was very disappointed to find that he has taken something that could be so wonderfully useful to so many Christians and seemed to focus his writing instead on refuting college professors directly rather than writing to the average Christian who runs into the arguments of those professors.
Much of what Mr. Hanegraaff brings up is great, gems worth sharing with others, even though he lets his personal views take over in some places. If he had written for the average reader, then any Christian could have enjoyed the gems he had to share rather than having to dig them out of the text themselves or missing them altogether in his doctorate type writing style.
I have very mixed feelings about recommending this book and probably won’t unless it is to someone who is a strong academic type of reader who is used to reading post-graduate theses.
