Top Customer Reviews
No matter what your exposure to the issues, this book provides an excellent summary and introduction, and is one that I recommend to friends who need a basic grounding in eary Christian thought.
Gonzalez presents a generally balanced view, though it seems that the "orthodox" position is generally portrayed in the best light in most cases, though not to such an extent that the book is heavily biased.
Overall, an excellent introduction and summary. I strongly recommend it.
But it seems that this ebook has been OCRed without any further review. Incorrect punctuation, misspellings (e.g. setde rather than settle) and especially in connection with cross references parts of sentences are missing to then later find that they have been displaced up to a whole paragraph.
When you want to do some concentrated reading/studying, this is not what you're hoping to see. So far I'm half way reading the book and have submitted many suggestions for correction using my computer version of Kindle. I hope they will quickly integrate these corrections and publish a new version of this ebook.
