No one in their right mind would doubt that the Five purposes are desirable but Warrens attitudes and style are risible.
I think for me Editing is the answer.
Rick's book lacks love, pastoral sympathy it is clearly and obviously centred on 2.4 (bloody 2.4) a church thing I absolutely hate. I see horrendous sermons modelled word for word on this appalling book and NO ROOM FOR INTERPRETATION AND FLEXIBILITY THAT IS NEEDED FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE GROUPS DISABLED MENTALLY ILL ETC SHOCK HORROR GASP-and shock horror even rewriting it!!
