Kindle edition of The Evangelical Universalist available in North America

For those of you who can buy from Amazon.com you may be interested to know that the kindle version of the second edition of The Evangelical Universalist is available. And I think that I am right in saying that it is a mere $9.99. Shoot me down! That is one cheap dude! Here is the link: Evangelical Universalist. Second Edition (Kindle)

I already own the first edition of The Evangelical Universalist on Kindle. On the Amazon site it doesn't seem to say which version is there, and there's only one listing. If I re-download my copy, will I end up with the 2nd Edition?

James said...

I re-downloaded it and no, it's still the 1st edition. I looked through Amazon.com again and there's a paper version of the second edition but I could find no link to a Kindle version of it.

James said...

Ah, now I see that your actual post says available "soon". Whoops!

No discounted upgrades for those with 1st edition? :-)

Oh well, the book is worth it - I might still grab the 2nd Edition anyway, to get the updated content.

I have the first edition - would you say that the second edition is worth another buy?

You are asking the wrong person! How does an author answer whether his book is worth buying?

It is up to you. The kindle edition with be $9.99 (I THINK) and it contains about 80 pages of new material. The old material is identical to what was there before.

Whether the new material is good is not for me to say (though, if it were then I would say that it is pretty good.)

Loving the new edition (got it on Kindle)! The section on election is fantastic, as well as the answers to critics. I would certainly recommend owning both. I gave a copy of the first edition to my dad, who incidentally is being installed as a pastor at Mars Hill church (Mark Driscoll's Mars Hill) in 3 weeks. We've been kicking around this topic, and others associated with it rather frequently for the past couple years. I also go to a Reformed church planted by the Mars Hill launched Acts 29 Network, and though my views are shared by no one at my church, the leadership and a few congregants have been willing, and even eager at times, to engage me in dialogue. It's been good-natured for the most past and I'm happy that UR is seemingly being regarded with less disdain among the laity and is moving in the direction of being regarded as a viable theological position (although the latter may still be a ways off). Anyway, your book has been very helpful for me in formulating my own theology, Robin. And though my dad does not share my Universalist views (he says he'd be thrilled if it were correct though) he found the book compelling on many fronts and definitely regards those who hold to UR as being brothers in Christ. Glad he will be joining the Mars Hill ranks with this attitude. There are many there who I hope follow suit. Thanks for a great read, and for your humble attitude and tone. It's definitely winning people over and UR as a theological position is slowly but surely working its way into some traditionally closed-off circles. This, to me, is a very good thing! I look forward to seeing how things develop over the next 50 or so years. I don't see this movement diminishing.

Thanks Kevin. That's encouraging.
