I highly rate this book, because it can be insinuated that the arguments were thoroughly and properly presented to the best of the author's ability. There are many references to scriptural text on behalf of the opposing view and the rebuttal.
Although one may not agree with any or all views in this study, it is still a very worthwhile read that will broaden understanding on both conclusions rendered through the presented interpretations of scriptural text.
For the sake of learning, this book is a great find:)
