The 5 Love Languages

I’ve read Gary Chapman a few times before this book, although this is his most popular book by far. Chapman is a graduate of Moody, Wheaton, Wake Forest, and a PhD from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is also an associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC. I’ve generally enjoyed his perspective on […]

God, Marriage, and Family

This is the second edition (2004, 2010) of Kostenberger’s book (with David W. Jones). This is one of those books which I have owned for quite a few years but used it for reference purposes as you might use a dictionary. Last week I took it with me on a trip and read it in […]

The Divine Life: Knowing and Walking wit...

Richard Baxter (1615-1691) was an English Puritan from Kidderminster, Worcestershire, a leader among the non-conformists. My first reading of Baxter was the well-known, The Saints’ Everlasting Rest, which I thought was the best thing I had read that year. This book is also very good but more difficult to wade through with his old English […]

Courageous Grandparenting

This 2018 book by Cavin Harper, founder and president of Christian Parenting Network, has been mentioned and recommended by numerous other writers in this subject. The strength of the book is his strong promotion of grandparents as necessary examples and speakers to the younger generations. I thought the best section included grandparents as gatekeepers and […]

The Great Concern

Edward Pearse (1633-1673) was a dissenting pastor in England and yet was appointed lecturer at Westminster Abbey. In his “To the Reader” Pearse explains that he knew he was dying and he wanted to leave these thoughts about death and dying to those behind.  He begins the second chapter, “An Important and Hard Task,” with […]

Grandparenting with a Purpose

Of a growing number of books on grandparenting, this is a 2019 book by Lillian Penner which is an update of a 2010 book. This book majors on how to pray for grandchildren. It is more a book of methodology rather than exposition. Penner gives numerous examples of how you might pray for this characteristic […]

Grandparenting with Grace

Larry McCall is a graduate of Grace College and Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and now pastors a church in Winona Lake, Indiana. In my reading of books on grandparenting, this was good in the areas of Leading a child to Christ (an area usually avoided or passed over quickly), dealing with divorce […]

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 […]
