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 […]

The Story of Winona Lake

I came across this book on a used book shelf and it stirred my interest.  I have heard of the Winona Lake Bible Conferences and also the connection of Grace Theological Seminary to Winona Lake.  Gaddis wrote the first edition in 1949 and in 1960 Huffman updated the history with a few chapters. “Built upon […]

However, almost all the books I’ve read by him are directed more at cultural issues and only slightly affected by his theology. In this book are two sections examining two Reformed theologians, J. Gresham […]

A Systematic Theology of Biblical Christ...

I finally finished Dr. McCune’s final volume of his theology.  This volume covers Salvation, the Church, and Last Things.  The great thing about reading McCune in any subject is his unwavering adherence to a fundamental, dispensational, pretribulational and premillennial point of view.  That combination is almost unheard of these days.  Dr. McCune carries a heavy […]
