Hitler and the Nazi Darwinian Worldview

This is a 2012, 2014 book by Jerry Bergman with the subtitle: “How the Nazi eugenic crusade for a superior race caused the greatest holocaust in world history.” Bergman tackles an ongoing issue of how much Hitler and his leaders believed Darwin’s survival of the fittest to the degree that they actually, and practically, pursued […]

America’s Expiration Date

This is a 2020 book by Cal Thomas, a well-known evangelical syndicated columnist. The title expects more than it delivers. Thomas is not setting a date but is interacting with historian Sir John Glubb, a WWI British veteran. In 1976 he wrote, The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival.  “Sir John asserted we refuse to […]

John Knox and the Reformation

Many books have been written about the reformer John Knox.  This book is unique in that it is authored by Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Iain Murray.  Lloyd-Jones writes the first two sections which are actually addresses he made to the Free Church of Scotland in 1960 on the 400th anniversary of the Reformation in Scotland.  The […]

The Chronological 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 […]

Stained With Blood

The subtitle of this book is, “A one-hundred year history of the English Bible.”  It is an excellent book and accomplishes that goal in a helpful and scholarly way.  Nordstrom praises the King James Version for being “the greatest Bible ever written” (p. 165) but also “It means we live in a translation era and […]

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 Stones Cry Out

In reading several books about the  archaeological finds of the recent century, I fully expected to  come across much  duplication  of items  and related text on the importance or impact of such finds. However, this book  introduces finds that I had not encountered in other books, and that  is most likely because the author is […]

The Light and the Glory

One of my fondest colleagues and a superb teacher of American History, Carol Sweigert, always assigned this book as required reading for her classes. For parents with middle to high school aged students of history, it is an easy reading chronological account of the founding fathers, the founding communities, and the solid faith that came […]

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 […]
