Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ

In John MacArthur’s most recent book, he examines what he calls one of the biggest cover-ups in Bible translation: the use of the word “bond-servant” instead of the more faithful translation of the Greek doulos: slave. Yes, the Bible teaches slavery! But not as we might… Continue Reading …

Charismatic Chaos

In this book, John MacArthur addresses the practices and theological underpinnings of the charismatic movement in Christianity. His approach is biblical, and he discusses the various arguments that charismatics give for their beliefs using both Scripture and common sense. As a former charismatic, I found… Continue Reading …

Leadership for Women in the Church

In this book, Susan Hunt and Peggy Hutcheson attempt to address the issue of female leadership within the body of Christ. They approach this sensitive topic from a very conservative position, acknowledging and even rejoicing in the biblical standard of male headship both in the… Continue Reading …

Cultivating a Life of Character: Judges/Ruth

I did this Bible study with my small group last year and had a few thoughts on this type of themed women’s Bible study. First off, I appreciate the effort that goes into rendering such a book as Judges palatable to the modern Christian. Some… Continue Reading …

In her book Creating a Cooperative Learning Center, Katharine Houk tells the story of how her family and a small group of fellow homeschoolers came together to create a cooperative learning center (or, as the ones I grew up in were called, a “homeschool co-op”). Though… Continue Reading …

Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices

Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices has a less-than-enticing title for this former charismatic. I almost passed over it, thinking it was of the school of pentecostal theology that loves to attribute everything to the devil and battle principalities and get zinged up about spiritual warfare and… Continue Reading …

Daily Readings With Martin Luther

This little collection of Martin Luther’s writings is a quick read; I breezed through it in one evening and am now rather wishing I followed the suggestion of the title and read bits of it more slowly on a daily basis. Like most Christians, I’m… Continue Reading …

Grace: God’s Unmerited Favor

I was excited to start this book. I’d never read anything by the famous Charles Haddon Spurgeon besides little snippets here and there quoted by other believers who find him a delight. What I did know about the man’s teaching was wonderful, hence my eagerness… Continue Reading …
