I have to say this is a hard book to review, not because it is not well written nor was it was a bad book, but the topics discussed was so well spread it’s hard to find a phrase to describe it other than the one that Trueman has provided: “Taking Aim at Everyone“. This is really what the book is meant to do, take aim at everyone. Trueman writes in a wholesome manner, being able to be sensitive to the culture that we’re in and also critical of what is happening, don’t get me wrong, Trueman is not some cynical critic, but one that really does brings out pointers that we really ought to think about. What’s included in this book: What’s wrong with (Mark) Driscoll? Why aren’t evangelical more humorous (and why they should be) Why we can’t take criticism (and what’s wrong with it) And many more…. You have to read to find out, it will be well worth your time and money. Read not to be more informative, but rather read to be able to think more carefully about what is happening about Christendom and how our brothers in the past can help guide us on to the future.
