When I Am Weak

The apostle Paul said, “For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor. 12:10). Paul had just described his translation to heaven, what he had seen, and the “inexpressible” words which he heard. But even the great apostle needed a thorn in his flesh to keep him humble in light of such a […]

Salvation

It was my privilege to write the Forward for this small but great book on salvation by Evangelist Ross Crowe. This is a rewrite of an earlier version which is now put into an attractive and usable format. Ross Crowe has been an evangelist most of his life and has also served as an outfitter […]

Finding God’s Will?

Shane Belding Book

Kevin Bauder wrote this small book in 2021 on God’s will. I think it is a great help to pastor’s and church people alike. Bauder believes that we cannot look for miracles, signs, or even fleeces, but we can look for God’s providential guidance. God does have an individual will for each believer but it […]

This is a 2021 book by Kevin DeYoung on the role of male and female at home and at church. DeYoung is a traditional complementarian who believes in the leadership of men with the obligation of husbands to love their wives and the followership of wives with the obligation to be submissive.

Post Christian

Grandparenting with a Purpose

Of a growing number of books on grandparenting, this is a 2019 book by Lillian Penner which is an update of a 2010 book. This book majors on how to pray for grandchildren. It is more a book of methodology rather than exposition. Penner gives numerous examples of how you might pray for this characteristic […]

Disciplines of a Godly Man

I have always enjoyed R. Kent Hughes and his writings.  This is a 2001 Crossway book thta had escaped my notice.  As is typical of Hughes, he takes the reader through an examination of thoughts and motives to being godly.  The chapters are simple, relationships, soul, character, ministry, and discipline.  The book is full of […]

Parenting God’s Way

I read this new but short book (2017, just 41 pages) while researching material on grandparenting.  I have watched Alistair Begg’s career from afar, being distantly knowledgable of Charlotte Baptist Chapel in Edinburgh where Begg once served as associate pastor.  This book was probably a printed sermon Begg preached from Ephesians on the family.  It […]
