Pick up a book from Steven Lawson and you feel at ease, comfortable in the knowledge that it will offer a solid treatment of doctrine with a serious attempt at application. It seems that the title of this volume is intended to both shock and not shock, and in that sense it is clever: every believer knows that ultimately Christ is all, yet rarely does the maths.

However this book ultimately fails to deliver on the promise of its title – which surprised this reviewer, given the theological Hall of Fame offering their endorsement on the back.
