Bottomless Glass, Too?
Another reader of my novella, The Bottomless Bottle of Beer, took a liking to it and says the following:
5.0 out of 5 stars - A gem you don't want to miss, August 11, 2016I'm not a theologian, and certainly not brilliant, but I understand why people think I'm a theologian. They take a glance at my thesis on John's Gospel and Gnostic texts and they think: "theologian." That's okay, I guess. Being thought "brilliant," however, is already off target, and what's worse, people would no longer underestimate me (which has always been to my advantage) and start overestimating me (to my disadvantage).
This book was an excellent presentation of temptation written by a brilliant theologian. On one hand it was quick and entertaining as well as very humorous. On the other hand, its core matter was weighed and balanced in a way that makes meditating on the carefully written words almost necessary. I was afraid I was missing something if I didn't reread and rethink every nuance. I will read and reread the book again and recommend it to others. It's a gem.
