The Regional Libraries have several copies. A couple appear to be missing and a couple are in reference sections. At least one can be checked out.

From my days yelling about not getting rid of the Jefferson School, I’ve been warned by many people who actually lived it that this book is more fiction that it should be: read it with a salt shaker at hand.
That is awfully good to know—thank you.
Waldo, QCC has had the authors of this book make two presentations here in the last few years. Once at Trinity Church in partnership with the Center on Lived Theology attended by at least 150 people and most recently here at QCC, with a standing room only crowd. They are both distinguished scholars at Perdue University and still have family here. I am sad to see you are so willing to accept one person’s disparaging opinion of their work.
I can’t see why I should be any more willing to accept a glowing opinion than a disparaging one. :) And thank you for that information!
