Revision & Expansion Required.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Reincarnation in Christianity: A New Vision of the Role of Rebirth in Christian Thought (Quest Books) (Paperback)
I agree with 'icappleg' that the book sorely needs an editor, or plainly a new author to get some of the ideas across. There are so many clutter words, and poor sentence structure that it does indeed make it quite a task to sift through this book.
When you do get through it, you are able to find a few gems worth taking with you. But I must say, you have to be careful picking up these gems for they ARE timeless, yet there are many ideas the author places in his book that are NOT timeless. They give away the science and research of his day. Thus, a Revision, Expansion and maybe a whole Revamp of this book is required for this book to get any more than 1, 2 or 3 stars at the most.

Wrong. The work is scholarly and doesn't pretend to not be. These folk who come in and post comments as though they are 'editors' and 'in the know' about these subjects just make me laugh out loud. If you want deeply researched scholarly insight into this issue, this is the book for you. If you are more faint of heart and have to be spoon fed complex subjects, it isn't. Nuff said.

I love assumptions. To be able to understand a haughty author is one thing, to realize when too much of a 'good' thing in any subject is quite another. Pompous asses who post comments as though they are 'in the know' and above the rest of the average folk just make me laugh out loud. Having to be spoon fed complex subjects has nothing to do with it, 'nuff said.
