4.0 out of 5 stars Sola Scriptura, 13 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an early account of the rise of reason and fidelity to the actual account of scripture concerning the person of Jesus Christ this is superb. In dealing with translator bias on those passages which seem to suggest Jesus is deity, it also gives alternative interpretations which make more sense. However, the Trinity isn't one doctrine amongst others it is the central doctrine of what passes for Orthodox Christianity for most, as such most other tenets of evangelicalism as currently presented hang upon it. One suspects that Eastern Orthodox Christianity is less vulnerable because its view of the Trinity retains the thought that God as Father is the source of all else, thus Jesus is always the Son of God, the Spirit is always the Spirit of God. So unlike modern evangelicals with their easy use of the expression God the Son which is inimical to the scripture account.
In short the book is an appeal to be genuinely reformed, to take seriously the call of sola scriptura, and all in the hope of restoring a genuinely spiritual worship that humbly rejoices that it is the Father who in and through Christ seeks those who will in deed worship in spirit and truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for the Trinity follower., 8 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Christian religion that boasts of its orthodoxy reminds one of Jesus' Pharisee thanking God he's not like other men. On this notion the book proceeds, quoting Calvin favourably he insists Jesus must be true God and true Man, and then twists Paul's meaning where he insists there's only one mediator the human Anointed Jesus, taking refuge in the absurdity of Jesus being both 'fully god and fully man' conveniently ignoring that however one dices the crucifixion God never died, the God that was in Christ 'reconciling the world to himself' is clearly said to have abandoned Jesus by Jesus' own testimony. So how did Jesus need to be 'true god and true man'?
Again the notion is brought forth that Jesus' death is necessary to pay for our forgiveness without the slightest trace of irony that if forgiveness is paid for it wouldn't be forgiveness, and as usual in evangelicals committed to scripture completely ignoring Jesus' assertion that 'the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins' so clearly God didn't need his death for forgiveness to be possible. However, the utter inability and depravity of Man is essential to the trinitarian logic. man's evil being so great only the blood of God himself is of sufficient value to redeem it - how some would flatter themselves, what ego to demand that God must die for one, which of course even the trinitarian admits that he doesn't quite.
So if you want the standard fare of the Pharisaic schools teaching for doctrine that commandments of men, this will no doubt be a standard text quoting all those authorities but if you want to discover that eternal life which the Lord Jesus insists is to 'know the only true God and anointed Jesus whom he sent' then ignore this, and seek those truths that don't demand the violation of reason. Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and flowing., 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't possibly speak to the accuracy of the translation, only its English, which is very clear. The Quran is a fascinating work, often very powerful and stirring, which for the seeker of certainties will often leave an indelible impression on the heart. Alas that so much of what it relates is simply wrong when compared to either the Hebrew Scriptures and what came to called the New Testament. Small wonder cries of corruption concerning previous texts are heard from the adherent's of Islam. For this reader the puzzle remains that Islam's worst sin is to associate anyone with Allah and yet to be a Muslim one must confess both Allah and Muhammed. "Say, I was commanded to serve God, devoting my religion exclusively to him."

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute delight to read, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute delight to read, the only puzzle is why the author reckons he's abandoned a view he presents so well. A systematic exegesis of scripture which is actually faith to the text. Not coming from any Church system so having no particular presuppositions, I can only choke back a frustrated scream when I read/hear arguments for alternate views which refuse to accept that if Jesus' words weren't fulfilled within the time frame he himself gave he was quite simply a false prophet according to Mosaic law or blithely insist that words don't mean what they mean - small wonder such 'lovers of truth' find it easy to confess a Triune but One God. His exposition on 1Cor. 15 and the resurrection is brilliant.

Ordered one for the wife, principally for surfing and kindle app, but it's proven great (with mounted SD) for music and audible, that I had to order another one for my own use as it really is superb VFM. As an aside the delivery for the first was in two days and the second next day and that was on Super Saver. Truly A1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Soy Milk Ever, 21 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm writing this from having only tested the Soy milk recipe because it makes the best Soy milk I've yet tried and knocks the spots off every commercial one I've bought, any I've made with or without my Soybella milk maker, the full cream version is delicious in coffee and doesn't curdle, and last and best the process itself is the simplest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like most Christian works that attempt to show the reasonableness of the Christian position, in the end its only 'reaching to the converted'. I purchased it primarily as a reviewer urged it had an excellent argument against Islam (or rather Allah) which seemed rather a philosophical rebuttal of Aristotle and Aquinas' reading of his position. It failed to satisfy as it essential point is to insist on the dogma of trinitarianism as somehow by-passing the Muslim's claim that God is one and ultimately transcendent to the creation. Surely Christ and the Muslim might both reply to Olliphant's arguments that 'nothing is impossible with God', next he insists that the Muslim knows no assurance but what Christian can claim more than Christ insisted that 'whoever does God;s will will know of the teaching and whether it's God's.' More is subjective and the property of every fanatic. Personally the Gospel just gets lost in the dogma, and the level of personal frustration when Christ is made equal to God the Father, a claim without scriptural support just makes reading painful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent perspective., 9 April 2014
In essence it would appear that Kerrigan is arguing for the classic Jehovah Witness position, which he does admirably but imho unsuccessfully, the problem with all attacks on the doctrine of the Tri-unity of God is they all start from a position of strict rationalism and allegedly take only the received (Protestant) bible as their reference. It is obvious to any not swayed by any position that the bible itself supports only a strict Monotheism, so the real question is why did the specific doctrine emerge and how is it necessary in order to speak of God, this book like most will singularly fail to answer such a question, perhaps the best answer is given by Joe Jones in his A Grammar of Christian Faith, when one sees why the Trinity emerged it becomes possible to see it for what it is - the sincere and brilliant understanding of Men of faith reflecting on their encounters with the Risen Lord through the witness of the Spirit in their communities of faith and most certainly not evidence of some doctrinal fall and perversion of the truth, sadly faith rarely seeks understanding.

Excellent service and product, very good value indeed, only Lidl's compete on price, but as I make Almond milk and Cashew nut ice cream the larger quantities are preferable. A1

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, 15 Feb. 2014
Paid full price for this because it looked so good in the bookshop. Firstly this has the best recipe for Seitan of any of my Vegan cookbooks, the texture's not quite meat but it hasn't the horrid squishiness of those that shortcut using vital wheat gluten and chickpea flour, this is actually enjoyable, the Goulash is fantastic, as are the Macedonian Baked Beans and the Green Lentil Loaf, You know when you like the basic flavours on offer that you'll enjoy the rest, which sadly can't be said of a lot of American recipes, they just don't sit right with my British taste buds - these recipes do and the book is offering a good range to master so being Vegan is actually feasible even in a mixed diet household - just fry some chicken legs for the inveterate carnivore and they'll happily lap up the dish.
