The Botany of Desire: A Plants-Eye View of the World by Michael PollanThe book that helped make Michael Pollan, the New York Times bestselling author of Cooked and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, one of the most trusted food experts in America
Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers’ genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship. He masterfully links four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. In telling the stories of four familiar species, Pollan illustrates how the plants have evolved to satisfy humankind’s most basic yearnings. And just as we’ve benefited from these plants, we have also done well by them. So who is really domesticating whom?

I'm sure that Dr. Geisler especially won't like that Norelli ends up suggesting that Grudem's single volume very hefty, but bound as a single volume Systematic Theology is better. I honestly never really ever even thought of planning to put Geisler's Systematic Theology anywhere even close to any book shelf I might now own or might ever own in the future. No, having read this review, owning Geisler's Systematic Theology is even less likely than before. Grudem's is seriously better.
Geisler, Norman L. Minneapolis, MN: Bethany House, Amazon Vol. One friend was a gentleman named Steve Kinney who told me at the time that he was an adjunct professor of philosophy as Biola University in La Mirada, CA. I was never able to confirm this information, and thinking back on the matter, I have my doubts that he was being completely honest. While I was less than impressed with his theological work, Chosen But Free , I found his apologetic work to be competent, even compelling, so in early I purchased his recently completed Systematic Theology set. I was urged to hold off on purchasing this because once the set was complete it would be sold at a cheaper price.

My opinion of Geisler in general is that he is a much better apologist than theologian. I like his works in the area of apologetics quite a bit and have made use of them often. In the area of theology, though, I think Geisler is sometimes in over his head. He calls himself a Calminian. It was pretty bad. I have not done a lot with his big four-volume work on systematics. Of course, a lot of it is standard evangelical theology, and one can learn from it.
