[A] delightful apologetic for a Protestant cultural vision. . . . before you write off these two as mere obscurantist Reformed types, take care. I found that some of my objections were, on the surface, more modern than biblical. ---Gregory Alan Thornbury, Carl F. Henry Center for Christian Leadership
[T]his book cries out against the bland, purely spiritualized Christianity to which so many of us have become accustomed.... I highly recommend it. ---David Kind, Pilgrimage, Concordia Theological Seminary

I wish they had gone into a few more specifics, particularly on the federal understanding of marriage, and while I agreed with much of the concept they were attempting to communicate as they discussed Bible translation (church authority) I simply cannot stand with them on the AV translation for today nor the textus receptus.
I didn't agree with everything the authors put forth. I strongly disagreed with a few of their positions but the overall case they presented in this masterpiece was both inspirational and convicting, maybe even "life changing."
We, Christians, have much to learn from those who have journeyed before us and when we do we will find wisdom, joy and a fulfillment we didn't know we were lacking.
Wonderful! Wonderful book!
The chapter on God's beauty and holiness, which is essentially an explanation of what C.S. Lewis called "pagan northernness" and includes a mini-commentary on Beowulf, is worth the price of the whole book.
As for the content, I enjoyed this book tremendously, beginning with chapter 4 on the divide between the Christian and non-Christian worldviews. Chapter 7 was an interesting look at how meals were used in worship and how to recover that method of praising God for his bounty, without crossing into gluttony. It was a very entertaining chapter. The entire book is a very worthwhile look at all aspects of life, familial (chapter 11) and political (chapters 13 & 14), and how we have lost much to modernity and post-modernity, and how we can begin to recover this lost ground.
