Book of the Week

This week's book is called Christ & Culture Revisited by D.A. Carson. The book discusses the relationship of Christians with culture, by looking again at the classic work on this issue by H. Richard Niebuhr. Last week's book by R.C. Sproul was great. It was an easy read with sharp clarity. He has a chapter that deals with the doctrine of limited atonement, and I'm not sure I've read anything more clear on that subject.

The Faithful God

"God is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man that He should change His mind. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not fulfill it?" -Num. 23:19

Book of the Week

This week's book is called, "The Truth of the Cross" by R.C. Sproul. Last week I went to a conference in Louisville, KY called Together for the Gospel, and Sproul was one of the speakers there. They gave us about 14 books and one of them was "The Truth of the Cross."

Book of the Week

This week's book is a short one by Henri Nouwen called, "The Way of the Heart." It's divided into three sections dealing with solitude, silence and prayer.
I'll be going to a conference this week in Kentucky (Together for the Gospel), and a short book will be great.

Book of the Week

Reading Abraham Kuyper's works online was more difficult than I had hoped it would I'm excited to get back to reading a book that I can have in my hands.

This week's book is too large to read in one week, so I've decided to divide the book into three parts, and read each part on different weeks over the next several months.

The book is called "Christian Theology" by Alister McGrath. I read through it when I was in seminary for a Theology class, but that was several years ago. One thing that I really like about McGrath's theology book is that he reviews historical theology so well.
