- This book is steeped in KJV-only heresy. It contains such nonsense as: "I love the song 'The B-I-B-L-E': The B-I-B-L-E; Yes, that’s the Book for me; I stand alone on the Word on God: The B-I-B-L-E. In fact, I like it so much that I wrote another verse for it: The NIV, you see, Is not the book for me; I stand alone on the real Word of God, The KJB, you see!" (p. 221). Later, after arguing for only using the KJV, he says: "The King James Bible is our Bible. [italicised in original] This is what we are going to use; we are not going to use anything else. It is our standard Text, and we’re going with it. ... this Book we call the Bible is inspired; therefore it is inerrant, and therefore it is infallible! Amen! It is here that we unapologetically, unreservedly and unflinchingly make our case. It is with this Book we call the Bible that we enthusiastically, excitedly and eagerly make our stand! It is this Text ["this Text" is bold in original] that we hold aloft in our hand and hold dear in our heart! It is the Book ["the Book" is bold in original] that stands solitary and supreme, and is acclaimed authoritative, preserved pure, resolutely reliable, tested trustworthy, and forever faithful!" p. 241-2. Please be careful. This false doctrine is dangerous and destructive.
- It's not clear whether this is Spurgeon's book, a refutation of Spurgeon's book, or both. But considering that it is from a Wesleyan publisher, it seems unlikely that it is just Spurgeon's book. And the description doesn't sound like it's written by someone who has read the book. Can Logos please clarify what the product is?
- Anyone know how many pages this is?
- Has Christianity been reduced to positivity in this blurb? Negativity is somehow bad? So "to sink emotionally, mentally" is not something that happens to good Christians because "hearts anchored in God don’t sink"?! This is terrible, terrible theology and so, so destructive to healthy emotions and good mental health. Please, Christians, don't buy into this nonsense. Positivity is not a Christian virtue. Negativity is not bad. We live in a sin-cursed world and it's not supposed to be easy. The gospel is the answer, not positivity.
- This is the 1898 version of the book. I have a 77 year old edition of the book (1944) which is already substantially different from this edition. Don't buy this if you want anything close to the current version of the book.
