Biblical but Boring,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Taking God at His Word (Paperback)
I bought this book hoping that it'd be a great, popular book that I could give to people about the Bible. The endorsements and hype were high, but when I sat down and read it, I just found it really rather boring. Kevin DeYoung can be a great author - funny, and ruthlessly Biblical - his book on Guidance, "Just do Something" is the best I know.
But this book is dull. It is a book that contains much that is good to say about God's word, much that is wise, and it is thoroughly Biblical. Yet, when the subject is so important: God's Word, we must do everything we can to enthuse people about God's word.
And that's why I won't be giving anyone a copy of 'Taking God at His Word'.
I'd recommend instead: Barry Cooper's new book, "Can I trust the Bible?" That's the book I wish this was.
