A.W. Tozer

“An encouraging thought for the true Christian is that the movement from orthodoxy to liberalism is usually slow, almost too slow to be perceived, where as the movement back to faith is sudden.” A.W. Tozer, This World:  Playground or Battleground?, p. 97.

Loving God with all Your Mind

I have always enjoyed reading Gene Veith.  He was the first to introduce me to postmodernism back in the early 90s.  Somewhere along the line I missed this 1987, 2003 book.  The sub-title is:  Thinking as a Christian in the Postmodern World.  Veith uses Daniel as his primary example of someone who was forced to […]

He is Not Silent

This is a timely book on preaching by Dr. Mohler. I greatly enjoyed it, keeping it close by on my Kindle and going to it in my spare minutes. Mohler takes the reader through the homiletics of preaching but insists that “the only form of authentic preaching is expository preaching.” By this he means that […]

Christianity and Liberalsim

I reread this classic work on a Kindle version.  Machen first wrote this book in 1921 when his Presbyterian church was experiencing encroaching liberalism.  It was first published in The Princeton Theological Review and was later put in book form.  The book simply moves through the subjects of man, sin, God, Scripture, Salvation, and the […]

The Vanishing Word

This is a Focal Point Series book of which Gene Edward Veith, Jr. is the general editor.  The subtitle of the book is “The Veneration of Visual Imagery in the Postmodern World.”  Hunt takes the reader from the world of the Scriptures, given in verbal form, to the Reformation and then to the modern day.  […]

The Christian Faith in the Modern World

I have found that anything written by J. Gresham Machen is worth reading.  I was browsing a journal about Biblical subjects when I saw a chapter from this book reprinted in that publication.  I immediately found a copy of the book on Amazon and bought it.  It was originally published in 1936 but that publication […]

A New Kind of Christian

Though this book was written in 2001, I wanted to read it first before I read A New Kind of Christianity, which was published in 2010 (same publisher and year as Rob Bell’s Love Wins).  A couple books by McLaren was enough for me but we need to know what those who are denying the […]

Velvet Elvis

Velvet Elvis was written in 2005 and is Bell’s first book. This book  is as clear a statement on the theology and theological method of Bell as there is. It also includes a clear discussion regarding his views of heaven, hell, and salvation (see chapter 6) which appear in Love Wins. I am a little […]
