God’s Word Alone

Matthew Barrett is the editor of the “5 Solas Series.”  He writes this one on Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone).  The others are on grace, faith, Christ, and glory to God alone.  Barrett traces the Scriptures as our only final (and therefore inerrant) authority to the Reformation and then brings that doctrine home for today.  Of […]

Loving God with all Your Mind

I have always enjoyed reading Gene Veith.  He was the first to introduce me to postmodernism back in the early 90s.  Somewhere along the line I missed this 1987, 2003 book.  The sub-title is:  Thinking as a Christian in the Postmodern World.  Veith uses Daniel as his primary example of someone who was forced to […]

Thirsting for Authenticity

It has been my privilege to read the manuscript for Dr. MacLachlan’s new book.  The book is now available and can be ordered on Amazon for a moderate price.  There have been many books written on the condition of the church in today’s culture.  Many are good and helpful and many fall short of being […]

Music and Morals

This is the second book I’ve read by Kimberly Smith on music.  This is forwarded by Frank Garlock and is very much in the mode in which he writes.  I don’t necessarily disagree with these kinds of conclusions.  However, I am a layman in the technical side of music and can’t say whether all the […]

Long Ago Told

This is the seventeenth book I have read of the nineteen that Wright wrote.  To be precise, this book was the fourteenth that he wrote, being published in 1929 by D. Appleton & Company.  Long Ago Told is one of the more rare HBW books and is worth much more than most of the others, […]

Counter Culture

This is a free book on Amazon for Kindle. I downloaded it and read it—about a 20 minute read. I would not even report on it except that what Platt does here is interesting. He gives a short report on current moral problems in the US and the world (poverty, abortion, orphans, sex slavery, ethnicity, […]

Millennials Rising: the next generation

In April I reviewed The Fourth Turning by the same authors.  I give this book more space in order to explain more fully the nature of these books (This is actually the fourth book).  The “Millennials” are the generation after the GenXers.  They are actually Boomer’s kids who last year (hence the name “Millennials”) entered […]

The Fourth Turning

This is not a Christian book (it is published by Broadway, 1997) but neither is it a non-Christian book.  The authors trace 500 years of Western history in generations of 80-90 years.  Within each generation there are four “turnings.”  It is their proposition that our history has run in repeated and predictable cycles both by […]
