Though the concerns I have are just large enough outweighing the positives that I would not give this book to an unbeliever for evangelistic purposes, here are the reasons I would give it to a believer in order to help them communicate the Word of God evangelistically. The author has an engaging writing style that brings clarity. Though the book is not a big This is a very complex three-star rating.
Though the book is not a big picture tie Scripture together kind of book, it is rather comprehensive. In other words, it is not a fly by the night quick evangelistic book. It deals with a great majority of the Bible with a focus on gospel themes. The book is faithful theologically. The book is a helpful example of addressing an unbeliever personally with the truths of the gospel and its threads throughout all of the Scripture.
As a believer, I found that it was edifying and caused me to rejoice in the gospel. The book is full of Scripture and often very skillfully woven together to present the gospel. Here are my reasons for not giving to an unbeliever even though that is the design of the book from most serious to less 1.
The author basically warns against those that teach that repentance and faith are gifts from God. In my view, that is a warning against what Scripture itself plainly teaches. Even then, the church is only included under the resources of other believers. In addition, the bulk of the section dealing with the church warns against false churches a necessary point but In addition, after carefully following the storyline of all of Scripture up to and past the historical events of the gospel the author completely skips over the start of the church in Acts and speaks of the conversion of Saul of Tarsus like an island in the middle of a sea of no context.
Almost every other passage quoted is from a different translation. It is distracting and I would think confusing for an unbeliever to see that. At the end of the book there is a short article on choosing a translation and it might be the point was to display various good translations and subtly guard against a KJVO position, but all in all, I think it would have been better to choose one primary translation throughout the book.
The author speaks of "free will. The book was so good, apart from these concerns, that I am still tempted to hand it out to unbelievers. But since there are other helpful resources I will likely not do so. I would like to read a similar book like this without these major concerns. If you took these issues out this book it would be a 5-star book hands down.
El Forastero en el Camino a Emaus (The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus) - Slightly Imperfect
Read More, Spend Less. Our group from the previous course wanted a better knowledge and understanding than they had received about who Jesus is. For years, I had hoped to find a book like this to pass on to friends. The reader engages with the text of the Bible for himself. Are there any plans? I believe that every Christian who is serious about evangelism should own several copies!!!!
