The Moon is Always Round — Jonathan Gibson

The Moon is Always Round — Jonathan Gibson

My wife and I recently bought this book to read to our young grandchildren. It is such a simple concept that is so memorably illustrated. Without any heavy preaching, you can relate to the message that God is always good even when we don’t understand some of the hard...

What Jesus Demands from the World – John Piper

What Jesus Demands from the World – John Piper

A couple of my former pastors have had this same idea of trying to develop a book (or in a broader sense a discipleship program) that revolves around a systematic analysis of the commands of Christ in the Gospels. Dr. Piper has successfully accomplished this...
Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ – John Piper

Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ – John Piper

The book title actually could be expanded to include Sharing Jesus Christ — as well as Seeing and Savoring. If someone truly sees who Jesus is with the eyes of their heart enlightened, they will savor Him and they will share Him with others. This short book of 13...

This Little Church Went To Market – Gary Gilley

This Little Church Went To Market – Gary Gilley

Gary Gilley does what many would consider to be very un-Christian: He names names and points the finger at those who are leading the market-driven church growth movement of today. But how else can one contend for the faith and warn the naãve and the undiscerning...
Living On The Ragged Edge – Chuck Swindoll

Living On The Ragged Edge – Chuck Swindoll

Continuing in my theme on Ecclesiastes, a book I would recommend for a variety of audiences would be Chuck Swindoll’s Living on the Ragged Edge – Finding Joy in a World Gone Mad. The author writes in a popular style but bases each chapter on the text of the Book of...

Eldership in Action – Richard Swartley

Reading the Bible Supernaturally — John Piper

As I looked over my prior Book Review postings, it would seem like the only books I read are those by John Piper! That is not the case … but I guess something about each of them strikes me in a sense where I am sparked to post a comment. This is a book I just...
Except for Fornication — by H. Van Dyke Parunak

Except for Fornication — by H. Van Dyke Parunak

This book very clearly presents an alternative view on the topic of the teaching of the Lord Jesus on Divorce and Remarriage. I must acknowledge right from the beginning that Van Parunak is a personal friend and someone who shares my convictions regarding church...
Finding the Will of God — by Bruce Waltke

Finding the Will of God — by Bruce Waltke

Waltke begins by debunking all of the spurious methods of divination that creep into a Christian’s methodology for decision making. He shows that much of our fuzzy thinking has more in common with practices of paganism than with a biblical orientation to trying to...
