I found the first section of this book to be very informative as far as church history and how are canon came to be. However, I was very disheartened to hear Mr. Hamilton describe removing parts of scripture he didn't like or understand. I found that he painted scripture interpretation with a broad brush and based some of his arguments on assumptions and hypotheses. As I finished the book, I was reminded of the scripture verse found in Proverbs 3:5. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

The author does an excellent job of breaking down complex theological positions and framing them back up for the laymen—always using sound logic and reason. Many of the topics he decides to take on are many of the same things I have wrestled with throughout my adult life—how to reconcile them against scripture and my own inner beliefs, etc. I found his take on many of these to be consistent with what I have come to believe.
