The Chronologial life of Christ, Vol. 2

I read this book on Kindle for an online class.  The two volumes were first printed in 1996 and 1997.  Volume 2 takes the reader through the passion week of Christ unto His ascension.  It reads like a harmony of the gospels with a few paragraphs of comments after each section.  It is basically sound, […]

Easter Enigma

This is a 1992 book on the chronological problems that revolve around the resurrection of Jesus.  The supposed descrepencies in the gospel accounts have caused many to doubt the veracity of the gospels.  Wenham concludes that these can be reconciled in a good manner which retains the integrity of the four gospels.  Wenham will include […]

A Short Life of Christ

Everett F. Harrison wrote this book in 1968 and it was published by Eerdmans. Harrison’s purpose for writing is to give an overall picture of Christ’s life but not dwell too much on the details.  Harrison seems to be conservative in his basic positions on Christ i.e., His deity, atonement, and bodily resurrection and ascension.  […]

Doctrine

“Don’t forget, doctrine never impresses the unregenerate world.  Those who do not know Christ couldn’t care less if you and I cross our theological t’s and dot our existential i’s properly.” Donald Grey Barnhouse, Thessalonians, an expositional Commentary, p. 50.

J.M. Frost

“Our people are as stout as the stoutest in holding fast and true the great doctrine of election with its coordinate doctrines, and yet are nothing behind the most earnest in emphasizing the freedom of the will, and in proclaiming the gospel as the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” J.M. Frost, […]

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

Mal Couch is a good dispensational pretribulational premillennialist.  We usually find him writing on prophetic subjects.  In this study of the Holy Spirit he takes the reader through the Old and New Testaments book by book reviewing the various teachings on the Holy Spirit in each book and each age.  The more controversial views would […]

Gospel Reset

Ken Ham has become the leading figure in Biblical creationism and rightly so.  His Creation Museum and Ark projects are fantastic displays of Biblical testimony to an early earth creation.  This little book is a proposition from Ham that the church is out of step with the presentation of the gospel in our day.  He […]

The Power of Suffering

John MacArthur always seems to write challenging books.  Though I’m more of a Baptist than he, I appreciate MacArthur’s conservative stance on worldliness and related issues, charismatic issues, moral issues, and his love of Scripture.  This book, written in 1995, is basically a study of several passages of Scripture having to do with suffering in […]

Transformed by His Glory

This is a study by Charles Ryrie of how the believer understands and lives in the light of God’s glory.  In the process Ryrie takes the reader through a number of biblical texts and, in his own unique style, draws his points and material from the text.  He begins with major texts of the Old […]

Foundation Truths of Scripture

Professor John Laidlaw, D.D. (1832-1906) was born and educated in Edinburgh, Scotland, teaching first in the Reformed Presbyterian Church but later joined the Free Church of Scotland.  This book, published by T. & T. Clark in 1897, is a book of doctrine laid out much like a systematic theology but much shorter.  It is one […]
