    1. This book is filled with great arguments that convincingly show that neo-orthodoxy, and its most ablest supporters like Karl Barth and Emil Brunner, is alien to the Reformed faith especially when it comes to the doctrines of Scripture and Sin. This work is another of a long line of books that definitively prove the "Calvin vs. the Calvinist" concept to be one without grounding in actual fact. The reason I gave this book three stars is that it is not exactly a "page turner". Very tedious to read. [...]

The more valuable part for me was the second half, which summarizes Barth, Brunner, and Bultmann on sin, comparing and contrasting their statements with the classic Reformed doctrine. Campbell relies heavily on Harold Whitney's "The New Infallibility" and "The New Heresy." Reading the section on B [...]

    3. I am truly sorry to say this was the dullest book I have ever read, minus maybe an Oxford book on writing. I would have given up on reading this book some time ago, but it was required reading for a class I am taking, which is the only reason I finished it at all.
