In spite of all the criticism it has received, I think this book does a good job of presenting the various evangelical positions on the issues it covers. It's a great starting point for anyone wishing to explore or develop their own views on these issues in light of the differing positions taken by other evangelical Christians.
Some have criticized the authors for bias toward their own views. But that's to be expected from a book like this.

No one is completely unbiased. The intent of the author In spite of all the criticism it has received, I think this book does a good job of presenting the various evangelical positions on the issues it covers. The intent of the authors is not to have the last word, but to help Christians begin to think through their positions on important theological issues. If you are afraid of having your theology challenged, either don't read the book or don't be afraid. It can be a great learning experience if you approach it with a critical, but open, mind.
If you do read the book you should also be willing to do further reading and study on issues that are important to you. Each chapter has good list of further reading at the end for that purpose. Whether or not some of these positions are held by a majority of evangelicals is beside the point. The Bible is used as the authority in defining every position described in this book. That should be enough for any evangelical Christian to give it consideration.

One reviewer on Amazon. How naive and silly to suppose that mere citation of Bible texts sanctions a theological position as Evangelical or Scriptural. It's just as true of her quotation of Rom. As anyone who has read the book can see, Boyd and Eddy do more than just prooftext Scripture. I think they are doing with it what any honest and committed Christian ought to do: Study it carefully to see what it really teaches us. For those of us who admit that our interpretation of the Bible may not be on par with the Apostle Paul, this book is a good place to start not the last word, by any means.
Across the spectrum: Researchers find way to stabilize color of light in next-gen material
Oct 21, Robert Justice rated it it was amazing. In theological circles, it is very hard to find a textbook that really treats controversial topics with equal respect for all sides. When a textbook discusses the Calvinism-Arminianism debate, for instance, the author usually takes up a great amount of space to defend one side over another. But not here! In this incredible source, Boyd and Eddy devote each chapter to a different controversial subject in theology- the fate of the unrepentant, the age of the earth, the nature of Hell and the future In theological circles, it is very hard to find a textbook that really treats controversial topics with equal respect for all sides.

Across the Spectrum: Understanding Issues in Evangelical Theology by Gregory A. Boyd
In each chapter, they give a series of short essays for each side of the argument. In each essay, they play devil's advocate to defend each position over against the others. In the chapter on the Millennium, for example, you'll read an argument for premillennialism. Later in that chapter, however, you'll then read an argument for post- or a-milliennialism. As each position is vouched for, the author speaks as though this is his final position; this adds a great dimension of objectivity to the text.
This is a very objective, fair source for anyone who wants some introduction-level information on these topics and the arguments given by those who pick a side. A great read! Jun 06, Josh rated it liked it. Across the Spectrum is a interesting survey of different evangelical perspectives on a select number of topics.
Instead of selecting the essay that is most agreeable or familiar the book encourages less certainty. Released: June 7, Released: May 1, Read Publication Online for Free. The Public Health Dimensions of the Epilepsies. Diseases , Public Health. Throughout this report, the committee emphasizes the ways in which epilepsy is a spectrum disorder.
Epilepsy comprises more than 25 syndromes and many types of seizures that vary in severity. The impacts on physical health and quality of life encompass a spectrum as well, with individuals experiencing different health outcomes and having a range of activities of daily living that may be affected, including driving, academic achievement, social interactions, and employment.
For some people, epilepsy is a childhood disorder that goes into remission although the seizures may have lifelong consequences , while for others it is a lifelong burden or a condition that develops later in life or in response to an injury or other health condition.
These many complexities of epilepsy make it a challenging health condition to convey to the general public to promote understanding and alleviate stigma. This report aims to provide evidence and impetus for actions that will improve the lives of people with epilepsy and their families. This study was supported by Contract No. NOD, T.
