Christian Theology in Plain Language

I have always enjoyed reading Bruce Shelley.  He was the long-time professor of church history at Denver Seminary and we lived in Denver near the seminary for a long time.  This book (1985) is written more for the layman than for the theologian or even the pastor.  Whereas I enjoyed his sequel, Church History in […]


Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed from the world. Zondervan, 2018 By writing this book, Andy Stanley has taken a big step into questionable Bibliology.  He has written with a positive motive:  wanting to win our current generation to Christ, a generation that has either left the faith or will not come to the faith […]

The First Fundamental: GOD

I’ve always enjoyed Robert Lightner’s books.  I bought this 1973 edition in the FaithBaptist Bible College bookstore on the markdown shelf.  The bonus is that this book is personally signed by Lightner and adressed to George Houghton, and also has Dr. George’s signature in it.  I tried not to mark it up too much.  How […]

Things Which Become Sound Doctrine

In my year of concentrating on reading more theology, some of these shorter books (See Ryrie, A Survey of Bible Doctrine in the January issue) serve as great refreshers and reminders of important doctrines.  This is a 1965 edition from Pentecost, long-time professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary.  Pentecost is well known for […]

A Survey of Bible Doctrine

Charles Ryrie (1925-2016) was long-time professor of Systematic Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary and Dean of Doctoral Studies.  He was an ardent dispensationalist, pretribulationalist, and premillennialist.  His book, Dispensationalism Today (now reprinted as Dispensationalism, of which I treasure an autographed copy from him in person) has been a standard text book for conservative schools for […]

E.Y. Mullins: The Axioms of Religion

Edgar Young Mullins (1860-1928), was an influential Baptist educator , author, and preacher. He became the fourth president of Southern Theological Seminary from 1899 to 1928. He also served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1921 to 1924. In the introduction Mohler writes of him, “As the Southern Baptist Convention entered the twentieth […]

The End For Which God Created The World

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is best known for his role in the Great Awakening and his sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” Edwards was one of the greatest theological minds America has ever produced. I read this well-known work on Kindle, and I must say, I had to wade through it more slowly […]

Booklets Worth Reading

Vital Issues of the Year By RBP, Various Authors Regular Baptist Press published this booklet in 1973. It was for the purpose of keeping the GARBC churches informed of various issues at the time. They include: evangelism and missions, the ecumenical movement, the charismatic movement, alcohol, drugs, the sexual revolution, race relations, divorce, the occult, […]

Old Paths

I have always enjoyed studying from Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels and have wanted to read this long treatise for a while. John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) was bishop Liverpool and an evangelical within the Church of England. If the reader can discern the obvious references to that church polity and doctrine, he can greatly […]

Christianity and Culture

On Kindle, when you finish one book by a certain author, it suggests a few others by the same author. Though I have read many by Machen, I had not seen this one. It is especially interesting to read men from a century before and see how they viewed culture (see my reviews on C.S. […]
