Eerdmans was good enough to send along a copy of Michael Graves’ The Inspiration and Interpretation of Scripture: What the Early Church Can Teach Us for review. I’ve flipped through it and discovered endnotes, which immediately makes me want to rip pages 148-181 out! I thought we were past this!
When, publishers, will you accept the fact that everyone who has ever learned to read hates endnotes with a hatred as intense as the beam of light from a thousand burning suns that shines through a magnifying glass the size of the frozen lake that Superman used to save the day at the nuclear power plant in Superman III?!!
STOP THIS NONSENSE AT ONCE! I implore you!
But to the fine folks at Eerdmans I say, thanks again, I’ll read the first 147 pages with much pleasure, until of course, I come across a superscripted number, at which time I’ll murmur obscenities under my breath and curse the day the printing press was invented.
