The Book of John lll by John Moody Foster lll is a non-fiction book about the author’s approach to Christianity and some of his answers to life’s biggest questions. The author’s style is formal, didactic, and highly analytical, while this book touches on various subjects, such as philosophy, science, religion, and eschatology.

The author begins by rejecting the idea of Trinitarianism, as he believes that the Father is greater than the Son. He says that each person of the Godhead must be worshipped separately according to their roles in the Godhead. The writer focuses on the rivalry between Jesus and Satan, claiming that Jesus wanted to allow humans to have free will, while Lucifer did not, which is why he rebelled against God with a third of the angels. Moreover, the author highlights the significance of the resurrection of the dead, while he analyzes the concept of three different heavens, with higher heavens having higher glory. The author believes that unrepentant people will go to the first heaven after being tortured in hell. The second heaven is made for people who were not steady in their faith, while the third heaven is for those few who endure and persevere in faith.

There was nothing I liked about this book, as I only found negative elements in it. Firstly, the text was poorly structured, as it was confusing and lacked cohesion. The chapters were not organized properly, thereby not allowing the reader to communicate his ideas in a clear and concise manner. Furthermore, the book was awfully edited, as I found too many grammatical, formatting, and punctuation errors in it. At least another round of editing is necessary to improve the quality of this book. Also, the book was dull and boring in many parts, as the author failed to spice things up by adding interest, emotion, and excitement to the text. What I disliked most about this book was that the author did not provide sufficient arguments and research to back up his opinions, meaning that his tone was not persuasive enough.

This book will be most appreciated by readers who have philosophical and existential questions about their lives. Mormons will appreciate this book the most, as Mormons and Latter-Day-Saints have many common beliefs with the author.

All in all, I rate this book with 1 out of 4 stars. I gave the text the lowest possible score because it was incoherently structured, atrociously edited, and insufficiently researched.

This does seem like a book only a few would find interest in, as it discusses a very strict and somewhat unique set of beliefs. Books in this genre are exceptionally difficult to hold the reader's attention for an extended period of time. Thank you for your review.

Unfortunately, this book is not for me. While I appreciate that the author appears to have put a lot of thought into his many ideas for the book, lacking reasonable arguments and research to back up those ideas is offputting. Thank you for your honest and excellent review!
