Recommends it for: Bible students
Gives a pro-Arian perspective on many purportedly pro-trinitarian bible passages. Good for identifying scriptural assumptions and will provide a Bible student with different perspectives on the nature of Christ than are accepted by orthodoxy.

Definitely a slow read, but will be handy as reference.

Even though the author brings some other questionable, fundamentalist Christian presuppositions to the table, they don't overcloud his more sound reasoning on this particular issue.
