The Making of an Atheist

James Spiegel is professor of philosophy and religion at Taylor University. This is a 2010 book on atheism from a philosophic and scriptural point of view. Spiegel brings together all of the valid arguments for God including Alvin Plantinga’s (to whom he dedicated this book) argument of sensus divinitatus, or a “sense of the divine,” […]

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) […]

Why We’re Not Emergent

This is a 2008 book on the emergent church by DeYoung and Ted Kluck.  DeYoung is the primary writer and Kluck adds chapters from his personal experience.  Even if you just read DeYoung’s chapters this is a book worth having.  Among explaining various faults with the emerging church (anti-foundationalism, anti-modernism, anti-traditionalism) he says, “The biggest irony […]

Mission Drift

This is a 2014 book about the danger of Christian organizations drifting away from their stated purpose.  It is written almost entirely about para-church organizations and has some application to local churches.  It is written from an evangelical point of view so a conservative reader can not expect  to see separation from that point of […]

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, […]
