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 […]

Steal Away Home

I was given this book by a friend who knows I love the Spurgeon history.  I have walked this history in England many times and am very familiar with the Spurgeon Center which is now at Midwestern Seminary in Kansas City where I currently live.  This book is a story written in historical fiction about […]

The Autobiography of George Muller

George Müller (1805-1898) was a British preacher and director of Ashley Down orphanage in Bristol, England.  He is known for his prayer life and utter dependence on God alone for the financial support of his ministry.  In all, Müller supported over 1000 children in his orphanage and established over a hundred schools for educating children.  […]

Baptist Hymn Writers

Losing the great hymns of our faith has been a concern of mine for a number of years. In this old volume from 1888, we can see how much we have lost by dropping so many meaningful and precious hymns from our services. Burrage not only reviews the hymns, complete with all the words of […]

The Pilgrim Chronicles

If one appears in court and is compelled to provide evidence to win his case, the best witness is an eye-witness. Here-say is dismissed by the court and vigorously challenged by the opposition.  An eye witness, however, can win the case. That is also the reason many states issue penalties for an eye witness leaving […]

Thomas Cranmer

While visiting my son’s apartment, I spent the afternoon reading this small book which is in a series on church history.  Having been in England many times and being interested in its history, especially from Henry VIII forward, I found this book fascinating.  Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) was an evangelical force behind Henry VIII’s departure from […]

The Church of the Fundamentalists

I am always glad for a new book that promotes the good history of fundamentalism.  Oats’ (long time professor at Maranatha Baptist University) proposition is that fundamentalism’s history is a history of separation, and that the history of separation is intrinsically related to the doctrine of the church.  Though this history is primarily of the […]
