Book Brief: Exegetical Fallacies

For scholarly competence and clarity of expression, it doesn’t get much better than Carson in my book. Exegetical Fallacies is good; it just isn’t as special as I was anticipating it would be. By the end, you realize that it’s not much more than a compilation of particular exegetical arguments that Carson personally takes issue with. While his critical remarks are legitimate by and large, the attempt to categorize these examples of problematic argumentation into formalized “fallacies” seems a bit forced at times. But again, it’s good overall.
