Carson writes in a style that is easy to read yet conveys complex ideas.
The book is divided into 4 sections;
Part 1 reviews pluralism in general focussing on the revolution within the field of hermeneutics and literary interpretation. An outstanding overview and analysis of the hermeneutic of modernity, post-modernity with perceptive and well argued responses.
Part 2 considers the doctrine of Scripture in the light of this revolution.
Part 3 analyses the Christian response to pluralism.
Part 4 looks at how far pluralism has penetrated the evangelical camp & offers some responses, particularly in evangelism.
This book is essential reading for all those involved in Church leadership and the study of the scriptures. Not only is it informative but offers clarity in what is a fog of modern opinion.

Carson provides an eloquent and timely rebuttal to deconstructionism. His book is racy and pithy, but certainly not intellectually light-weight.
Evangelical Christians would certainly find this book useful, but I suspect it has a wider audience. Carson's breadth of reading and ability to cut through the obfuscation of Derrida et al makes him a refreshing read. He provides real and sensible answers to the apparent linguistic mud of much postmodern criticism.
Definitely worth a read for anyone that wants their faith in language (as well as God) restoring.
