Is this a compliment or an insult?

Over at Biblical Christianity, Dan Phillips (blogger extraordinaire of Pyromaniacs and Biblical Christianity fame), gives a very nice recommendation to Gospel Meditations for Women a new book out by my friend, Pastor Chris Anderson of Tri-County Bible Church in Ohio. In fact, Dan wrote one of the "blurbs" for the back of the book.

His blurb reads in part:

Gospel Meditations for Women is richly Biblical, richly Christ-entranced, and richly Gospel-centered. ...I’m glad to commend it, without reservation, to sisters in Christ—and I’d suggest their husbands sneak a peek whenever they can, too!

However, in Dan's Biblical Christianity post recommending the book, he makes the following comment that I thought was kind of funny:

It's surprisingly deep, thought-provoking, doctrinal and devotional. (emphasis added)

Not sure how I'd take that if I was Chris :).

Just my thoughts,

Oh, my! Don't start something! I just meant it's amazing how much he and Joe pack into such brief devotions, without making them feel like they're under super-compression!

Sorry, Mr. Phillips, I just couldn't resist when I read it. It was too easy to pass up.


Chris Anderson said...

Ouch! :)

It gets worse. He initially had a typo (Freudian slip?) that read "Finally, and most eriously..."

Erious, indeed.

Frank Sansone said...


That's great. "erious" is that a new word for a very serious error?

I'm glad things are going well with the release of this book. Any timeline on when your one for men will be done?


Chris Anderson said...

Ugh. We're still recovering from getting this one done. :)

We'll probably get the counterpart in the hands of our men this Father's Day, then make it available next year. Unless GM4W is an erious flop, of course.
