Alone with God

This is a 1995 reprint by Victor Books of an earlier study by MacArthur on prayer.  I was taken by the title and was not disappointed.  Prayer must be our primary way of fellowship with God and our first weapon in our fight for truth.  The bulk of the book is a study on the […]

The Power of Suffering

John MacArthur always seems to write challenging books.  Though I’m more of a Baptist than he, I appreciate MacArthur’s conservative stance on worldliness and related issues, charismatic issues, moral issues, and his love of Scripture.  This book, written in 1995, is basically a study of several passages of Scripture having to do with suffering in […]

Living in the Spirit: A Look at Wine, Wo...

This is a 1970s study booklet (it has no date) by MacArthur on three subjects:  Bible wine, Biblical music, and the filling of the Spirit.  In reviewing material on the first two, I found that I had put this away some years ago.  In this study guide MacArthur takes the “one wine” view of Bible […]

Fool’s Gold

Reviewed by Dan Lucarini When I first met Dr. Shrader for lunch in Denver, we talked about the “death of discernment” in the church and thought someone should write a book about it.  Well, someone finally did!  This book exposes the root problem that causes many Christians to fall in love with the world and […]

The Master’s Plan for the Church

This is a 1991 Moody Press  book which is a remake of an earlier Study Notes titled, The Anatomy of a Church.  If, ten years ago, you thought MacArthur was a radical on church polity, you may see him today as a forthright conservative.  Though differing with him in some matters of Baptist distinctives, MacArthur […]
