The Silence of God

Many of us have been blessed by Sir Robert Anderson’s writings over the years.  Some months ago I reviewed his Types In Hebrews which is also part of the “Sir Robert Anderson Library Series” by Kregel.  I think The Silence Of God is a vital subject for today’s church.  Anderson (1841-1918) explained that it was […]

The Holy Spirit and His Gifts

This book on the Holy Spirit was first written in 1940 and then revised by the author in 1970.  I found that most of the major works on the Holy Spirit in the last century referred to Sanders in some way.  It is a thorough study of the major areas of pneumatology and also includes […]

What Child Is This?

What Child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping? Why lies He in such mean estate where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christian, fear—for sinners here the silent Word is pleading. So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh—come, rich […]

The Second Coming of the Church

This is the latest in a long line of books by George Barna.  Of course, being the founder of a polling company, the books are always filled with interesting charts, graphs, polls, trivia and material for illustrations.  Beyond the statistical use, however, I have not been a fan of Barna’s ideas and philosophies of ministry.  […]

Tongues – to speak or not to speak

I reread this 1981 edition of Burdick’s 1969 book (Moody Press) for a lesson I was teaching on 1 Corinthians.  I had forgotten how valuable and useful this small book can be for laymen struggling with the tongues issue.  Burdick believes that tongues belonged to the list of miraculous gifts and that miracles passed off […]

Born Crucified

This little book has been read by many in search of a deeper walk with God.  It is one of those books (and authors) that people either absolutely love or hate.  I think that is because it represents the thirst in America for true, Holy Spirit revival and yet at the same time is a […]

His Deeper Work In Us

This is the second in a trilogy of books by Baxter that I am reading this year.  As I wrote in the first review (Feb.), I find Baxter an interesting middle ground on Holiness teaching.  He does believe that a Christian should come to a crisis experience in life but he does not believe in […]

Divine Healing Today

Mayhue is the Senior Vice-President and Dean of the Master’s Seminary.  This book has been around for a few years and parallels much of John MacArthur’s works on the Charismatics.  The book is very readable (at only 150 pages) and can be recommended to friends who are struggling in this area.  Many examples are used […]
