- An excellent history of philosophy - clear, thorough, readable, immensely helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
- "Fresh commentary" you say. 1955!
- I was a student for over 2 years at the University of Manchester in the Faculty of Theology. FF Bruce was my supervisor. One of the first things he told me was that Paul overargues himself. Later I asked him if he believed the Bible & he said, IF Paul wrote it! Then in discussing the resurrection I asked if the gospel writers contradicted each other. He replied: "we all see through a glass darkly." By the time I got to him, he evidenced disbelief in Bible inerrancy. Faithful? No. Helpful? Not always.
- I suggest you look at Bruce's book on Paul (British name something like apostle of the free spirit). Check his treatment of 2 Cor 5 on the tabernacle Christians receive in heaven after death, to see if he there denies the resurrection in favor of claiming that Paul abandoned resurrection for living as a spirit in heaven.
- Very readable, informative, comprehensive and challenging.
- Superb value. Ah, if only I were building my library at the start of ministry rather than tailing off towards its close. Great resources. Even for the older works in the series, wisdom and judicious thought is never out of date and is always possible to learn from.
- I'm just part-way through, but far enough to say that this is a superbly thought out and deeply reflective work which will help us think our way through the (many) dissonant passages of Scripture. And it will help us by framing sound Christological lens through which we may read all of scripture with integrity and confidence. I've rarely been so excited in beginning a new theological work. Thank you Greg Boyd - both for this summary work, and the magnum opus upon which it stands. I thoroughly recommend the book to all.
