Law and Grace

This new book by Dr. Houghton is a long-awaited and welcomed addition to the important issue of law and grace in the believer’s life.  It could as well have been titled, “Law, Gospel, & Grace” because that is the three-fold division Dr. Houghton suggests as a Dispensational solution to the confusion over law and grace, […]

Studies in the Epistle to the Hebrews

Most are familiar with English’s work, Re-Thinking The Rapture, but may not be aware of his great commentary on the book of Hebrews.  This was first printed in 1955 by Loizeaux Brothers.  This is a detailed work similar to William Newell and is trustworthy in matters of types, covenants, and law vs. grace.

Absolutely Free

Written in 1989, this book has been the declaration voice of the Free Grace Movement.  At that time Hodges was the long-time professor of New Testament Greek at Dallas Seminary.  Since his departure from that seminary he has been influential in founding and writing for the Grace Evangelical Society (GES) which advocates the Free Grace […]

Water of Life

This small book is forwarded by Charles Spurgeon and reprinted in America by Gospel Publishers in MT.  I found this copy in a used book store.  Listen to Bunyan on the abuses of grace:  “Alas! What can be expected of him that has nothing in him to teach him to manage that knowledge of grace […]

The Potter’s Freedom

The sub-title of the book is “A Defense of the Reformation and a Rebuttal of Norman Geisler’s Chosen But Free.”  I reviewed Geisler’s book in the July, 2001 issue of Aletheia to which I gave a favorable review because I like Geisler’s position.  I have liked White’s material before, but I don’t hold his extreme […]

God, Creation and Providence in the Thou...

These kinds of books take a great deal of patience to read through.  However, today’s debates over the nature of God’s foreknowledge demand that we make honest effort at understanding  men like Arminius.  He, no doubt, was a thoughtful theologian with a desire to retain the sovereignty of God and the free will of man […]

Chosen But Free

I have always enjoyed reading Geisler, and most of us have read him for years in the field of apologetics and philosophy.  Here, Geisler speaks to the current issues of  “Extreme Arminianism” (seen in the elimination of God’s sovereignty) and “Extreme Calvinism” (seen in the elimination of Man’s free will).  Geisler takes issue with Extreme […]

Grace Unknown

This is the third book I have read by Sproul in the last year in which he defends the Reformed Faith, specifically those doctrines related to salvation by faith.  These books are a valuable reference in the current controversy over Catholic faith and evangelical faith.  It is disappointing when Sproul refers to Fundamentalism as “unscholarly […]

All of Grace

I picked up this well-know book on a discount rack.  It is a book written by Spurgeon directly to sinners who might be so inclined to read about the gospel for themselves (talk about a different age!).  I think it (and L.S. Chafer’s True Evangelism) is one of the most relevant books on evangelism from […]
