November 19, 2012

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...

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...

42. J. C. Ryle’s “Expository Thoughts” Now Available in Ebook Format

September 20, 2011

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&...

July 30, 2011

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...

49. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

July 2, 2011
