Don't go looking for objectivity here. Those people to whom the author refers to as "Campbellites" would never call themselves by that name, and thus the author betrays his own bent attitude right in the title by deprecating and insulting them. How can someone claiming Christianity be considered seriously who cannot show enough gentility and courtesy to call people only what they would willingly call themselves?
You will have to see it for yourself, but this would also explain why that church is misrepresented in the book, and biblical passages are take out of their context in order to make them assert what the author wants them to say. If you want to know more about how the Lutherans view the Church of Christ, I suppose this is as good a representation as any, but for someone seeking the truth about God, Christianity, the Bible, or the church described within it, this book is entirely unreliable.
Was this review helpful to you?
I can't believe the number of inaccuracies the author claims against the churches of Christ. As another reviewer stated they would never call themselves Campbellites. Also, they wouldn't know anything about the "five volume set of books entitled SOUND DOCTRINE" nor the "three volume set entitled Hardeman's Tabernacle Sermons". Later the author mentions that the churches of Christ consider religious holidays sinful....again, something that is NOT taught. The churches do not hold special services since Christ wants his followers to worship him weekly.
The author mentions several men and what they may or may not have said in the past. The churches of Christ would say to the author "what does the Bible say about this subject?"
