Reviews - What do customers think about The Treasure of Earthen Vessels: Explorations in Theological Anthropology?
Too much verbage Jan 6, 2005
The title is misleading. It doesn't address anthropology as I thought it would, but rather goes in depth about salvation. I was looking for material about science and the existence of God and instead I found it was a collection of articles about Lapsley . Is it a Christian book, or is it secular? There's so much verbage in this book that it's hard to tell what they're saying half the time. The most confusing parts are when they're using all those five dollar words to describe salvation, and when they equivocate on the meaning of salvation and other related terms. It seems that, in order to read this book, you must also be familiar with some obscure article written by Lapsley on salvation. After a bit of sifting, you may, as I have, been able to find some enlightening spiritual truths, and it is one of the few sources I have found discussing Martin Luther and bodily functions. Students at seminary may enjoy this type of academic material, but I found little use for it.
