    Terrible. I can't inderstand why writers spend so much time yackin about a lot of nothing before they get to the meat and potatoes of the subject they're supposed to be writing about. I was so bored with the first part of the book, I put it down and haven't wanted to pick it ip again.

    I purchased this book because it was a required text for a seminary class and it has been my favorite textbook so far. It is highly readable and would be useful to anyone who wants to get more out of their daily Bible reading.
