2.0 out of 5 stars Some Useful Thoughts - Shame About the English, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dangerous Calling (Kindle Edition)
I didn't find anything new in what Paul Tripp has to say here, and I had the greatest difficulty in stomaching his appalling prose. One is used to Americans turning nouns into verbs, but do we really have to put up with non-words such as 'disconnect' and 'potentiate'?

This commentary was recommended to me by the man who taught me New Testament Greek as the best commentary on John's Gospel he knew. Anything by Don Carson is worth reading. And I heartily recommend this commentary to anyone who values in depth, evangelical New Testament scholarship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comparisons, 20 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Little Dorrit [1987] [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this film on its original release, and this DVD brought back some happy memories. The 'extras', such as they are, are interesting, but I would have welcomed an explanation of the techniques used to triumph over a limited budget. I would encourage others to compare this adaptation of Little Dorrit with the more recent BBC adaptation. Each is very fine in its own way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original Material Wonderful, Some Technical Difficulties, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hard Times [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
It was great to see again this exemplary adaptation which was such a ground-breaker in the field of costume drama when it first appeared in 1977. Although the quality of the interior shots is very much of its time, the exteriors continue to stand up well.

I have experienced some problems with loading the DVD onto my laptop.
