After a while, reading and writing disclaimers about theological books gets to be a real annoyance. “Of course, I don’t agree with everything this book says, but I still think it’s worth a read.” “Naturally, I take exception to some of this writer’s assertions.” “I can’t support all the things this writer says and does outside his writing.”
Disclaimers are indeed necessary sometimes. But they are probably implicit in any review. Who does agree with everything anyone else says? What self-respecting, doctrinally serious Protestant thinks that anyone else in the world pretty much gets every question dead right?
Wouldn’t it be fun to be able to totally agree with something someone else wrote? How about a number of someone else’s? There’s only one book which I know of that I can treat that way. So here’s my antidisclaimer:
“Naturally, I agree with everything this book says. I support all the things its Writer has ever said in an outside of His writing.”
