Equipping for Life

Andreas and Margaret Kostenberger team up to write this 2018 book on parenting. This is a practical guide for parents new and old who are looking for real-life help and ideas in raising godly children. There are many personal stories from the authors but rightly so since this is a practical book. They take the […]

On Death & Dying

Though I had known of this book for years I had not read it. It was first published in 1969 and updated in 2019. This is a secular book on the observation of dying patients by Dr. Elisabeth Kulber-Ross. For its time, it was a ground-breaking study from a clinical and observational perspective. The book […]

You Never Stop Being a Parent

In reading on parenting and grandparenting I keep coming across authors I have not yet read. When I see that good people such as Tedd Tripp and Stuart Scott have endorsed the book, I figure it’s worth trying. This book by Jim Newheiser speaks directly to the topic of parents and their adult children, with […]

Quit Church

Baker Books published this 2018 paperback by Chris Sonksen. He is a Souther Caliornia pastor and a motivational speaker. He is the founder of Church Boom, a personal coaching ministry to church leaders. It is hard to tell from the title what the book is about. I thought either it dealt with quitting church altogether […]


It should be noted that this book on prayer is a 2016 Moody book and is a compilation of material from A.W. Tozer arranged, edited, and commented on, by W.L. Weaver. I list Tozer as the author only because he is the one in whom the reader is interested. Weaver includes 28 entries from Tozer […]

If You Will Ask

Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) began as a Baptist pastor and ended his ministry in the holiness movement. He is best known for his book, My Utmost for His Highest. This book on prayer has many good things about it. It also shows some of Chambers’ holiness doctrines such as the subsequent baptism of the Holy Spirit […]

Discipling Your Grandchildren

This is a 2020 book by Josh Mulvihill, the fourth one that I’ve read. It is a departure from the first three in that it is a book of  “how-to-do-its” for grandparents. Mulvihill usually writes on biblical topics related to grandparenting. However, discipling our grandchildren is important and can be overwhelming for many. I will […]

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 […]
