I'm finally done with this book! Good lord, this was one of the most tedious, dry, disorganized messes of a book I've ever read. The material is really, really good, and Lesslie Newbigin is a giant of thought and theology (the extra star is for his sake, not the book's), but good luck retaining or internalizing any of it.
