It should not be labelled as unorthodox. It is a tome for scholars. I
found it invaluable as a seminarian many years ago. To a large degree,
the ability to think critically is missing in today's church. If we
get into labeling this work, perhaps we should label all:
Scripture is all sufficient, leading us into all truth.
What we are taught, what we hear, what we read and what we experience
must be measured by it.
Be a skeptic, like the noble Bereans, who searched the scriptures
diligently to see if what they heard was true. (see Acts 17:11)
