    Yes, John is a dear friend, but also his thoughts in this book, as always, are limited to the contribution of the Biblical text. He does not dramatize to interject theory or in any way intentionally tamper with the content of his work to push political or theological views. He even held his professional breath until his own denomination found no problem with it. He did not speak for them, only for his own intellectual conscience. Oh, he endorsed women pastors—something I, myself, needed to be reconciled with. Definitely a good read if you are into Biblical studies.
