ONE HUNDRED FORTY FIFTH

"Readers should be alerted that the book suffers from some poor proofreading.  I was frequently distracted by errors, as many as three or four on a single page (e.g., pp. 41, 155, 168, 171, and 175).  Some mistakes are howlers, such as this Christological affirmation: "there is one Sin and not two" (8).  Others require a theological eye.  Genesis 1:3 does not say "Let us make man in our image" (15), and it is misleading to speak of the Council of Ephesus occurring in 433 (6 and 136).  The back cover even misrepresents  the prodigious work by Edwards.  He has a very useful translation of Optatus, Against the Donatists, not Optatus, Against the Gnostics."
