The Best of G. Campbell Morgan

This is a 1972 reprint by Baker Book of Morgan’s sermons compiled by Ralph Turnbull. Morgan (1863-1945) was a well-known British preacher and pastor of Westminster Chapel in London. I have always enjoyed his commentaries and I equally enjoy reading his sermons. Campbell was encouraged to preach as a young man after hearing D.L. Moody […]

Overcoming Grandparenting Barriers

Larry Fowler is the founder of The Legacy Coalition which is printing this series of books called Grandparenting Matters, edited by Josh Mulvihill.  Fowler was the international director of Awana for many years so he has much to say about kids and those who love them.  This is an interesting book (only about 100 pages) […]

Long Distance Grandparenting

This book is one in a series called “Grandparenting Matters,” edited by Josh Mulvihill.  This series belongs to The Legacy Coalition, Larry Fowler, founder.  These are fairly short books, around 100 pages, on various subjects having to do with grandparenting.  This book contains some practical suggestions on grandparents that have the challenge of living distances […]

Disciplines of a Godly Man

I have always enjoyed R. Kent Hughes and his writings.  This is a 2001 Crossway book thta had escaped my notice.  As is typical of Hughes, he takes the reader through an examination of thoughts and motives to being godly.  The chapters are simple, relationships, soul, character, ministry, and discipline.  The book is full of […]

Parenting God’s Way

I read this new but short book (2017, just 41 pages) while researching material on grandparenting.  I have watched Alistair Begg’s career from afar, being distantly knowledgable of Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh where Begg once served as associate pastor.  This book was probably a printed sermon Begg preached from Ephesians on the family.  It […]

Biblical Grandparenting

Josh Mulvihill wrote his PhD on this subject for Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and then published this book in 2018 (Bethany House).  It is a much needed book on an important topic.  He writes in the first chapter, “There are millions of Christian Grandparents in America today with few resources to equip them to accomplish […]

Heart, Soul, Might

In 2012 the Central Seminary faculty with Kevin Bauder wrote and published this book.  The subtitle is “Meditations on knowing and loving God.”  I found it to be inspiring and informative.  It is not specifically a theology book on God, nor an answer to critics.  Rather, it is a series of short essays on topics […]

Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong

This 2009 book is done by MacArthur and other staff at Grace Community Church.  I found it to be very helpful in a number of different areas that affect the local church.  It is divided into four sections:  Entertainment and Leisure; Morality and Ethics; Politics and Activism; and Tragedy and Suffering.  I thought it was […]

“Free Grace” Theology: 5 ways it dimini

Wayne Grudem wrote this valuable book in 2016.  He points out that the Free Grace movement diminishes the gospel in a number of ways.  Free Grace is a movement that insists that faith must stand alone i.e., it is not accompanied by repentance, acceptance (fiducia), good works, or even assurance.  To add any of these […]

The Forgotten Fear

This is a recent and timely book on the fear of God, published by Reformation Heritage Books in 2015.  The subtitle is: “Where have all the God-fearers gone?”  Martin is a Reformed writer who has also become a popular source for this topic.  This book is laid out in a practical way, defining the fear […]
