When book blurb goes wrong
My copy of Erasing Hell, by Chan and Sprinkle has arrived in the post. Sprinkle is a serious scholar, so I thought I should give it a try - test it out for an essay on one of my courses. However, I was more than a little put off by the following excerpt from the book's back cover:
This is not a book about who is saying what. It's a book about what God saysSeriously?! To be more precise, this is a book about what Chan and Sprinkle think the bible says, but this is not quite the same thing!
It gives me an idea for my book title on Pauline Christology, when it finally gets published: Pauline Christology: What God Thinks, Not Dunn, Hurtado etc., by Chris Tilling!
