Product Description

Theological essays are dusty, humourless affairs aren't they? Well, they don't have to be! This is the second collection of essays by Carl Trueman. His first collection was received with the enthusiasm. This time Chick Lit, Adolf Eichman, the i-pod, Roger Beckwith, the Blues, Watership Down, American Idol, Nietzsche, zen-calvinism, Augustine and ferrets(!) all get a mention.

If you want to inform your mind and chuckle at the same time - Carl's your man!

Editorial Reviews

There is a growing company of Presbyterian prophets writing these days, but Carl Trueman is the only one who is clearly enjoying himself. Minority Report is a heady blend - at its most playful when in dead earnest, effortlessly displaying its street cred when dismissing popular culture, and invaluably thought-provoking when probably wrongheaded. This is a learned, urbane, witty, and timely book in the service of orthodox Protestant thought.
"shows the author as a master wordsmith - It will challenge, stimulate, inform and teach. It confirms Trueman's place as one of contemporary evangelicalism's most dynamic young theologians."
"affirms the historic evangelical faith with great force, clarity and excellent judgement."
"I cannot think of a young evangelical writer and theologian whose works I more eagerly read."
"The wit of an evangelical Chesterton, prophetic insight of Francis Schaeffer and the accessibility of John Stott."
