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 […]
“Christians through the centuries have affirmed that Scripture, as God-breathed, is first-order language, and our theological formulation is second-order language. If the interpreter’s theological formulation is based on Scripture, then it is true and trustworthy.” Matthew Barrett, God’s Word Alone. p. 138.
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 […]
Stained With Blood
The subtitle of this book is, “A one-hundred year history of the English Bible.” It is an excellent book and accomplishes that goal in a helpful and scholarly way. Nordstrom praises the King James Version for being “the greatest Bible ever written” (p. 165) but also “It means we live in a translation era and […]

Lightner wrote this in 1966 and updated it in 1978. At the time he was professor of Systematic Theology at Dallas Seminary as well as an outspoken […]

The Rawlings Foundation, Wellington, FL, 2011. This book is very readable while giving the reader an in-depth look at the development of the English Bible, particularly focusing on its history from Wycliffe to the translation of the KJV. Some of the intriguing information included is the influence the creation of the English Bible had on […]
Taking God At His Word
I’ve always appreciated Kevin DeYoung’s style of writing and his solid defense of the Word of God. The sub-title to this book is “Why the Bible is knowable, necessary, and enough, and what that means for you and me.” DeYoung gives the answer to this statement in eight chapters, followed by an appendix: “Thirty of […]
