Here’s What I Know
A book like this is so hard to review, at least for me. It is clear that John Townsend wrote this book to address a specific set of questions. But they are questions I am not asking.I am reminded of the famous phrase from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “the question of life, the universe and everything”.
That is what Dr. Townsend is trying to answer, the question of the everything of God. I have no doubt that there are people asking the questions he addresses, but they have no real relevance to me as a reader.
To be honest, I’ve read plenty of treatments of these questions. They are of course core apologetic questions. Does Dr. Townsend answer them in a fresh perspective? I would have to say no. In fact to be truly honest, I found it difficult to keep reading it because there was so little originality in the approach to ideas.
There is nothing terribly original about this work. It certainly did not have anything that caught my attention or engaged my thinking as a reader.
The Blah Blah Blah…
The FTC says I have to tell you that I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for my review. If you didn’t know that, now you do.
