Christ’s Prophetic Plans

This is a 2012 book edited (and contributed to) by John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue. It is a good book and a great help in supporting “futuristic premillennialism.” The first two chapters are also a defense of dispensationalism and there is a chapter defending a pretribulational rapture. In addition there is a chapter on why […]

Prewrath: a very short introduction

Alan Kurschner, writing in 2014, has restated the prewrath view which was made popular in 1990 by Marvin Rosenthal in his book, The Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church, and also by Robert Van Kampen’s 1992 book, The Sign. Kurschner has become a popular representative of this unique view. Basically it is a redefinition of the “Day […]

The Making of an Atheist

James Spiegel is professor of philosophy and religion at Taylor University. This is a 2010 book on atheism from a philosophic and scriptural point of view. Spiegel brings together all of the valid arguments for God including Alvin Plantinga’s (to whom he dedicated this book) argument of sensus divinitatus, or a “sense of the divine,” […]

Readings in Christian Theology, Vol. 3

It was in 1994 when I read two and one half of this three-volume set, edited by Millard Erickson. Now in 2020 I picked up the third volume and finished it. This third volume has three parts to it: New Life in individual experience, in collective expression, and in future extension. It was the third […]

Christian Theology in Plain Language

I have always enjoyed reading Bruce Shelley.  He was the long-time professor of church history at Denver Seminary and we lived in Denver near the seminary for a long time.  This book (1985) is written more for the layman than for the theologian or even the pastor.  Whereas I enjoyed his sequel, Church History in […]

The First Fundamental: GOD

I’ve always enjoyed Robert Lightner’s books.  I bought this 1973 edition in the FaithBaptist Bible College bookstore on the markdown shelf.  The bonus is that this book is personally signed by Lightner and adressed to George Houghton, and also has Dr. George’s signature in it.  I tried not to mark it up too much.  How […]

Theologies of the 21st Century

This is an update (2014) on Smith’s earlier edition, A Handbook on Contemporary Theology, published in 1992.  These are helpful summaries of various contemporary theological movements and trends.  The new version repeats some of the earlier ones with updated material, yet has new additions such as a history of theology from the Enlightenment, theologies of 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 […]

A Short Life of Christ

Everett F. Harrison wrote this book in 1968 and it was published by Eerdmans. Harrison’s purpose for writing is to give an overall picture of Christ’s life but not dwell too much on the details.  Harrison seems to be conservative in his basic positions on Christ i.e., His deity, atonement, and bodily resurrection and ascension.  […]
