First, the author spends close to half of this small book (only 91 pages) showing us that throughout history, in several different centuries and in several different societies, those with the insight and education to do so have always divided humanity into four basic types. Imagine that—always and only four! They may call them by different names and identify them by different characteristics, but they always come up with four. (We are completely ignoring the bogus outliers. See previous reviews.)
Finally he chooses one set of labels, Analytical, Structural, Conceptual, and Social, and proceeds to classify the four gospel writers. He uses their choices of sermons, miracles, and parables, and even word counts to prove his point. It is all interesting and makes you want to sit down right then and read through all four to find these points yourself. Then it makes you wonder, which one am I? In fact, if you find one gospel "speaking" to you more than another, you may have just found your personality type in this book.
As I said, it is a short and easy read, and one that should provoke a lot of thought afterward.
