This book is good, but it was very, very similar to his "redeeming science." Also, Verne could stand to cite someone other than himself and Dr Frame.

This is a good book that is solidly grounded in Scripture. While I have no criticisms of the content, I felt at times that it could have been condensed. Some of the points had previously been made in Poythress' book on language - which is excellent book. I also felt that the appendices could have been incorporated and integrated into the main content of the book. So it's worth a read and will stimulate thought but I would skim some sections.

Dr. Vern Poythress continues his program to recapture the borrowed capital of common grace in human scientific disciplines. Very curious about the apologetic effect of this book.
