Q: Question About Review Dates The Complete Guide to Bible Translations by Ron Rhodes is shown as having been published in 2013.Why are the only two reviews dated 2008 and 2010?Basically, I need a text that compares Unitarian Universalism to Reformed Protestant theology.I am not attempting to tear down another person's religion as the 2010 reviewer makes it sound like a purchaser of this book intends to do.By the way, that 2010 reviewer charged that this book is full of half-truths but where are the whole examples of those allegations?I've listened to Ron Rhodes being interviewed many times over the years and that, coupled with the fact that he was educated at Dallas Theological Seminary makes him a very credible author in my mind.Many of the finest thinkers (my opinion) in the Reformed Protestant camp have been educated at Dallas Theological Seminary.
