My biggest problem with the vignettes was not the theological conclusions,
which I largely agreed with, but the general deductive approach taken,
using the Greek text to defend theological orthodoxy. In some cases I did
not feel that the Greek text actually made the point that was being drawn
from it, even though I agreed with the point itself.
