In The Original Text–the irony.

I’m currently reading the book, “In The Original Text It Says”  and will be posting up my  overall review in the coming weeks. For now though, there is some slight irony in this book, which I want share.

Before I mention this irony, I want to make the caveat that I am enjoying this book and am enjoying the overall thesis of it. I want to say, that this mistake in no way detracts from its message. I also have the utmost respect for the publishers and think that any proof reading and editorial content of any manuscript must be one of the hardest jobs out.

    I need to have a talk with the editors 🙂

      Hi Jeff. For some reason this comment was caught in the spam. I have been away on church camp, just back and found it.

      I have finished the book and getting my thoughts together on it. It was a relatively easy read (Though not simplistic) and I really enjoyed it.
