ECXELLENT WORK.

Great book.

Book arrived in time and in good conditions. However, I have found many errors in the text. For example, the author defined Christian Milleniallism as the belief that Jesus would return 1000 years after his death, while the true definition is that it is a Christian belief that Jesus would return to rule FOR one thousand years after his death. I cannot speak to errors outside of the Christian faith, as I am not informed to do so, but there seem to be many small misunderstandings on the behalf of the author regarding Christianity.

It's in decent condition, but not perfect.

The book over all is in adequate shape. I did however not expect water damage to the whole entire book. I don't remember in the description of the book when I bought it to have any type of damage to that extent. Over all though I will be able to use it for my class.
