Dave Hunt, Baptist Fire, and Amazon.com

After posting my "Random Stuff" post yesterday, I was curious as to whether the faceless guys at BaptistFire posted his sermon on their website for promotion. I did not find it there, but I did notice something else . . . Dave Hunt's book What Love Is This? is a hard-to-find book, not for the least of which reason is his shoddy scholarship and injustice to historical theology. Consequently, booksellers and publishers refuse to have anything to do with it. Yet you would think that if you have folks like Tim Lahaye and Elmer Towns endorsing this book that it would be more available. At BaptistFire, there is a book review for What Love Is This? along with a link to it on Amazon.com. When I clicked on the link, it took me to the page that refers to the book but not actually the book itself? Why do you think this is? Answer: When you click on the book you have people's recommendations and comments below who have actually read the book. BaptistFire (I presume) did not want you to see that, especially since their book review was obviously in favor for it. There are currently 98 reviews on Amazon.com, most of which explain the erroneous nature of this propagandist work for Arminians. Now, there are some of course that are in favor of it, but their reviews, if you notice, are emotional and not historical or biblical. I would encourage you to read the reviews (both for and against it) and see for yourself. P.S. Oh, and by the way, if you wanting a copy of this book, Amazon.com says that it is a "special order". Didn't expect them to have "the most important book in the twenty-first century for all Evangelicals to read" as Tim Lahaye puts it. Guess this book is too important to find a publisher and a reader.
