From the Publisher:

The following comments by the author are not intended to help sell his book, merely to give his opinion as to why this particular book has such complete opposite for and against reviews.

From the Author:

You will readily see that the reviews on this book are extremely polarized between those who LOVE the book (5 stars) because it is faithful to the Bible and those who HATE it for the same reason. This should come as no surprise since Christ warned Christians that they should: "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." (Colossians 2:8)

Those who follow God's Word are warned in 1 John 3:13: "Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you." Those who reject God's Word speak from their knowledge of the world philosophies (psychology and false religion) because: "They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error." (1 John 4:5-6)

Of course, some emotional or untaught Christians may also be deceived by these false philosophies and are thus warned in Colossians 2:8 to: "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." The consequences for these believers is graphically described in 2 Peter 2:18-22.
