Many Christians, as well as skeptics, are unfamiliar with the rules of biblical interpretation and therefore, regardless on which side of the fence the reader is on religious issues, all groups can benefit from this book.
R.C. Sproul is articulate in defining the concept of "lay renewal" in the search for the truth behind "an enigma capable of vastly different interpretations (p. 11)." "Is there any way out of this confusion? Can serious readers find any principles to guide them through the conflicting viewpoints they hear from all sides? These are some of the questions that this book is designed to deal with (p. 12)."
