- The book itself is exceptional. Focuses largely on a Ladd-like understanding of inaugurated eschatology, and the reformation emphasis on glory of God. Like all Logos works, hyperlinked scripture texts are awesome. As are most other primary sources if one owns them (DSS, etc). However, note that many (most? All?) of the secondary works are not linked. Even if one owns them, the footnote citation doesn’t link to them. It doesn’t even link to an abbreviation glossary, or to the bibliography. Because Schreiner identifies each work only by last name and date, if one wants to even know what work is being cited, they must move to the bibliography and skim till they find it. (And even then, even if they own it, it may or may not be linked to in the bibliography) dictionary articles seem to be usually, commentaries always are. Many monographs and other works are not. The ability to glance at a work cited in a footnote, and to open that work directly if one chooses, is the most valuable part of reading a work on Logos imho. So buyer beware that this normally amazing feature of logos works seems to be rather limited in this work for some reason.
- Loved it! I grew up KJV-Only, and graduated from a Textus-Receptus-Only Bible College, and I can say - most authors don't understand what we believed or sympathize with it. Mark does. His book is an invaluable resource for all who have only ever used the King James Bible, or who even believe that everyone should only ever use the King James Bible. If that is you, or a friend, you should read this book. I plan to write a longer summary and review here at http://bloggingtheword.com/the-blog/authorized-the-use-and-misuse-of-the-king-james-bible-a-review. Great book - buy it - Give it Away!
