How a lesbian professor became a pastor’s wife and the homeschooling mom of four adopted children.

A few months ago I received a copy of a brand-new survey of the New Testament called Frameworks by Eric Larson. The truest thing I can say is that it is not what I expected. In my mind when I say the words “New Testament Survey,” my mind goes immediately to the huge, thick tomes that were required reading in seminary. Because those book...

Last night I happened to find a digital copy of an old book called The Gospel of Forgiveness, published in 1878 by Scottish theologian Robert Candlish. It is essentially a 19th-century “gospel book,” written to convince sinners to come to Christ. Within its cover the reader finds a great deal of warmhearted gospel appeal. One get the se...
The Korean translation of Stealth Attack has just been released. Here is how the publisher describes the book:The war on terror is out of balance. Billions of dollars and cutting-edge weaponry pitted against faceless zealots. Cunning foes who fight dirty. Though inferior in strength, they remain surprisingly deadly. In spiritual terms, this conflic...

38. December 1941December 21, 2011
This morning I finished reading a new book that in some ways was written 70 years ago. Reading December 1941: 31 Days That Changed America and Saved the World is like stepping into a time machine and entering a world that long ago disappeared.This is the story of Pearl Harbor and its aftermath as told through contemporary newspaper accounts. Author...

When a friend asked me recently what I’ve been reading, I didn’t have a quick answer because I had to go home and check my iPad. Basically I don’t read anything these days that isn’t in ebook format.Before I give my list, here are three caveats. First, this isn’t a complete list. Basically these are the books that made...
For many years I’ve turned to J. C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels when I wanted to study a text from the gospels. Ryle, an evangelical Anglican who served in the late 1800s in Great Britain, had an uncanny ability to get to the heart of each passage. More than that, he knew how to find the “preachable truths&...

For the last several weeks I’ve been immersed in the little book of James in preparation for teaching it next week at Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. It’s been a new adventure for me since I last taught the book on Wednesday nights in the Pastor’s Class that met in the Dining Room at Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Pa...
I am not surprised that “The Help” has turned out to be a huge hit at the box office. As of August 23, the movie has earned $77 million, making it the sleeper hit of the summer.A friend called several days ago to ask how the movie is being received in Mississippi. I can tell you this much. When Marlene and I saw it last Friday nigh...
The Spanish translation of Credo: Believing in Something to Die For has just been released. Here is how the publisher describes the book:The Apostles’ Creed is the most widely accepted creed of the church. Brief but powerful, it is so clear and biblical that all branches of Christendom enthusiastically embrace it. When we stand up together an...

John Stott, the greatly-loved British pastor, author and evangelical leader, died earlier this week at the age of 90. In reading some of the tributes published about him, I was struck by the repeated references to his humility, a character trait that seems in short supply today. Through his more than 50 books and hundreds of sermons, and through hi...
Several weeks ago I finished reading Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas. My short review would be that this goes on the top shelf as the best book I’ve read this year. Two things struck me and stayed with me after I finished the book. First, Bonhoeffer saw much earlier than many others the evil that was in Adolph Hitler....
The Spanish translation of The Healing Power of Forgiveness has just been released. Here is how the publisher describes the book:Few Christians realize nearly every problem in life stems from an unwillingness to forgive someone. When we hold grudges, seek retribution, and blame others, we end up hurting our relationships with God and people&mdas...
There is nothing new under the sun. So said the writer of Ecclesiastes 3000 years ago. That fact is demonstrated by the recent release of the ebook version of The Doctrine of Endless Punishment, written by noted theologian W. G. T. Shedd in 1885. In what sense is this 126-year-old book an answer to Rob Bell? Put simply, Shedd deals with virtua...
