Great insights

I checked this book out at the library and decided I have to buy it and make it part of my collection. He is very clear explaining his thoughts. There are more than enough references to also read. He gives you the information and lets you make your own conclusions. It’s great to be able to read the references from general authorities and scholars. I had to have it to reread and for further reference.

Insightful and oh, so helpful!

I have loved this book! Not only is it insightful, but it has helped me to find answers to questions that I've had for a long time. I really enjoy his writing style, easy to read, yet intellectually stimulating. His writing is completely interesting, even humorous at times. And his sources are well-cited, giving him great credibility. Another thing that gives him credibility is his pattern of offering interpretations, most of them cited, rather than authoritatively claiming to know all answers. He is a true teacher, guiding and offering pathways for the mind, with some gentle persuasion, but allowing the reader (student) to come to their own conclusions and beliefs. I highly recommend this book!
