Welcome to the third and final part of my review of the book So Much More. This has been something I have been working on slowly for more than five years, so it's nice to finally be able to move on with my life.
I want to bring up something first. This is the part where I talk about what is bad in the book. I will not mince words, as some of these topics are awful and harmful to people.
I am not trying to say that the Botkin sisters are awful humans. I am not trying to say that the Botkin sisters are horrible people that want to destroy the world. I am not saying that the Botkin sisters are abusive Christians themselves.
Also, I am not trying to excuse their writings or beliefs in this book.
What I am saying is that the authors were young. What I am saying is that their writing is thinking that has been carried on in the church for hundreds of years, and that this thinking is wrong. What I am saying is that this thinking has led to many painful instances that could have been avoided and need to be stopped in the future as both bad theology and wrongly placed blame.
Or else we get to experience the "Debt-free Virgins Without Tattoos" that the Transformed Wife discusses. There's a lot of problems with that, but I'm not touching that with a ten-foot pole and better people have talked about how it's wrong.
With that being said, here are the bad things of So Much More.
