LibraryThing Review

User Review  - exinanition - LibraryThing

Though well-meaning, I am certain, the author has written a very immature book on the doctrines of Christianity. The book is very shallow and I cannot even recommend it for the beginning student. Note of interest: Shirley C. Guthrie, Jr. is a man, contrary to what his first name suggests. Read full review

Review: Christian Doctrine: Revised Edition

User Review  - Keith Turner - Christianbook.com

The fact that this is a "revised" edition makes me want to read the originial edition all the more. Overall, this was an interesting book, and I got a few things out of it. Some parts are really great, and some parts are a little dry. The gender-neutrality throughout the book is a little annoying. Read full review
