Thoughtful Christianity

Editor’s note: After almost 30 years of writing book reviews for this website I come to a unique turn of events. The author of this book, Dr. Matthew C. Shrader, is my youngest son. It is a blessing to know that when a son stands on the shoulders of a father he reaches higher and […]

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 […]
