So I have been attracted to reading this John Piper's book as far back as January. See how useful this blog is! Well, I just finished it. I was underwhelmed. Of course you use your head to read the Bible. How else are you suppose to do it.
This time Piper seems to be trapped in the intellectual traditions of his civilization forgetting that the Bible was written against a very different cultural background. So many possibilities are missed as a result when you forced ideas into categories and try to discover their relationships.
This book could have led me to a gem though. Piper highly recommend, "How to Read a Book" by Mortimer Adler.
