Susan, a great show on a bad, bad book. Looking forward to Part Deux. Wow, these Calvinists are all the same. They would not know the joy of life if it kissed them on the cheeks or spat in their faces. I have never met a happy Calvinist woman. Period.
Among other things, a counselor, of course, Vernick used to be (still is? who cares?) a “relationship coach”…whatever that means out there in Cuckoo Land of Reformed and Calvinist Nonsense. With wolves like her, one can usually tell a lot by simply looking at their book titles. “How to Act Right When Your Spouse Acts Wrong” (2001) is such an example. Who has decided that judgment upfront? In other words, the wife (not the woman, mind you) is going to give this book to her husband (or read it herself first and then give it to the already-found-guilty-and-about-to-be-sentenced husband), or the gawd almighty elder who has referred her to the gawd almighty “biblical” counselor is going to give her this book, or, even worse, the “certified” (that word makes me want to scratch my fingerprints off using a cheese grater) counselor is going to give this book to the wife and the rest is not even worth mentioning.
Martha Peace (also with ACBC, no? who cares?) released a monumental flop in 2015 called “Modesty” with Kent Keller. Maybe you’d like to have a look at that one too. It’s another book of “laws,” if you read me correctly. And then there is always Susan Heck (also with ACBC, yes? who cares?) to fall back onto for anything heretical. So, I guess you’ll be rather busy at your coffee table.
