Endowed with an unusual ability to identify current issues of importance to the public, Dr. Hopkins has the gift of analyzing reasonably and fairly every issue and then communicating his views in everyday language. He writes like he talks and, as an experienced Sunday school teacher and pastor, knows how to engage his audience. He tackles every issue with a strong ethical undertone but is always tolerant of other views. He utilizes history and factual data, is a stickler for accuracy, and stays clear of offending his readers. He brings to his books the background of an experienced college president, an international traveler, and deep family roots which ground him in Christian values. He is a creative thinker who can challenge conventional wisdom on just about any Biblical subject while maintaining a balance between extremes. In an age when extremism gains national and international attention, it is refreshing to hear a sane voice which can be heard by young and old alike. Every serious-minded reader will be enriched by this book, especially Sunday school teachers and church leaders.
