    Dr. Franke's daring work is not, as some would believe, an attack on Truth or the basic tenets of historic Christian faith. It is rather a call to examine the presuppositions with which one enters biblical studies and theological discourse, and to challenge the reader to consider exploring truth as examining different facets of the same jewel ("Truth"). Differing views yield differing perspectives, perhaps not completely correct but not completely off either. Is Jesus the Son of God and the Way to reconciliation with Him? To Franke, yes. Is [other--insert your favorite form of church polity] the one biblical (true) way ? No. Granted, he could have expressed himself better at times to avoid some misunderstandings, but when listening to him and others at the (conservative, Bible-believing) Evangelical Theological Society annual meeting discuss this book, you then know he not only knows what he is talking about theologically (even if you disagree with him), you recognize what this book is driving at is not "anything goes" Christianity.

    In terms of philosophy, this guy knows what he is talking about. In terms of theology, he is severely lacking. He says that all forms of Chrisitanity are right and that all the different views are right. In other words, Arminians and Calvinists are BOTH right. E. Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestants are all right. So much for the narrow gates and strait path...like Jesus said...I will listen to Jesus
