All in book reviews
Visuals are important. How something appears can leave a lasting impression. In a day where many books are actually judged by their covers, Crossway has taken notice and created the ESV Illuminated Bible, Art Journaling Addition. It truly has a beautiful cover, but there’s much more to it than that.
You may know the name Ellie Holcomb, but mostly likely it’s not from her children’s books.
I set out to be more of a reader this year and I think I read more books in one year than I ever have. Having completed 30 books this year, I figured I’d do the popular thing and put out my top 10.
I first became aware of John Maxwell when I was in high school. I happened to be at a student leadership conference hearing from one of the vice presidents of Chick-Fil-A and he challenged us to read a particular book by Maxwell and promised that if we did, we could email him and he would reward us with $100.
This book may be the best book I will read this year. At 300 pages in small type, it’s intimidating. Don’t let that discourage you. It is so worth your time and effort.
Many Christians would do well to read and be challenged by the majority of the book. However, I wish the latter part of the book came with a warning label.
The Bible is one grand, beautiful story. Many think the Old and New Testaments to be clearly divided or they perceive God to have had a major change between the Old and New. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
In this book, you will find the struggle of sin and the power of the gospel on full display. Jackie is real and so, so vulnerable.
When I found out that Thomas Schreiner had written a book on spiritual gifts, I knew I wanted to check it out.
Crossway and Joel Beeke have teamed up to release what I think is a valuable resource for pastors and teachers. No matter what tribe or camp you fall into, I think you will benefit and find Reformed Preaching to be a book worthy of your shelf space!
John MacArthur holds nothing back in his latest book, Christ’s Call to Reform the Church. MacArthur takes Christ’s letters to the seven churches found at the beginning of Revelation and examines them one by one relating them to Christians and churches today.
