I'm going to review this book for as long as it takes
Oh my word!! I hadn't seen that excerpt where he compares the actual crucifixion to coitus ... complete with the very unfortunate word choice, "mount". I'm just utterly speechless that people thought reading MORE of this book would change people's opinion on it!
Thanks for doing the work Laura
thank you for doing this! I have been wanting to know more about the book but I really don't want to support it, nor do I have the time/energy to read it.
Thank you for your sacrifice. A generous, even hospitable review.
The more I learn about “Beautiful Union”, the less likely I am to subject myself to additional nuance from its pages.
I think this is the kind of travesty that happens when an author is applauded and platformed before they’ve had a chance to gain wisdom and maturity. I wish the best for Josh Butler. Perhaps the best thing for him is that the book fades quickly into insignificance.
Thank you. I will read every word of your review for as long as it takes.
Reading this, I'm reminded that the working title for the book in the publishing deal news was "Sex Idol," which seems like it would have perhaps been a more apt title.
Thanks Laura for embarking on this torrid project. I could not do it myself -- I get severely triggered by JB’s flights of fancy.
When I read the quote about the Cross being a marriage bed which Jesus “mounts”, I almost had to stop reading. Words fail me! Never have I heard anything like it before.
Yes! It’s not the most egregious problem with the writing, but the ”pro tips” and cliches like Cabo alongside everything else adds a little extra…
It's worse than I imagined
Thank you for this thorough, insightful review, & for falling on this particular grenade for the benefit of us all. I will be reading every word. While even the first installment is disturbing, I know it will be far more palatable than the book.
This is very thoughtful; I look forward to reading more. Thank you.
