I know you can get some really weird book reviews on Amazon.com, but the following “review” of Thomas E. Phillips’ Reading Issues of Wealth and Poverty in Luke-Acts is a really doozey review that looks like someone just trying to be a funny twit (aka Dr. H. Scaballa).
This books certainly defines a revolution in Luke-Acts studies. THERE ARE few scholars in the field who write with such alacrity and insight as Thomas E. Phillips SBFM. Also, his perspective as a professional exotic dancer (as is all too clearly portrayed in the picture on the book’s back cover) brings to the text sensitivities which are rare in the field of ultra-conservative biblical studies. All and all, I would say the book is the pre-eminent example of mid-acts dispensationalism being combined modern critical theory – truly, a photogenic masterpiece to be treasured through the ages.
Sounds like a disgruntled student, ticked off colleague, or theological nemesis. I would report it to Amazon.com, but its been up there since 2003!
