Going Deeper with New Testament Greek

One of the distinct deficits in seminary training has long been the methodology employed in teaching the Biblical languages. Introductory materials are numerous, but advanced studies often rely heavily upon resources that are either out of reach for the average student or are inadequate for the task by virtue of their simplicity. In reality, most… Continue reading Going Deeper with New Testament Greek

Uranium: Tom Zoellner

One of the great things about living in Southern New Hampshire is access to GMILCS - that's Greater Manchester Interlibrary Catalog System for the uninitiated. GMILCS is a network of over twenty libraries, including a couple of college libraries, that pool their resources and allow their patrons almost unfettered access to them.

Real Marriage: Part 1, Chapter 2 – Friends with Benefits

I am on to chapter 2 of Mark Driscoll's Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship & Life Together. Sorry it took me so long to get the second chapter out, but I have had a few other things going on that have kept me busy.

When I finally went ahead and downloaded the controversial book Real Marriage, which he wrote with his wife Grace, it was not with the best of intentions. In fact, it… Continue reading Real Marriage: Part 1, Chapter 1 – New Marriage, Same Spouse

I have been reviewing books for most of the major Christian publishers for two years now. There have been a few decent books, but most of them have been substandard in my opinion. They are churned out because they have a guaranteed audience, with no consideration for content and a poor focus on editing. About… Continue reading REVIEW – Reverberation

Review – From the Library of A. W. Tozer

How do you review a book that is not a book? From the Library of A.W. Tozer is not a biography of Tozer. In fact, it has nothing to do with Tozer himself except that it includes reprints of the writings of public domain materials that were found in Tozer’s personal library. A. W. Tozer… Continue reading Review – From the Library of A. W. Tozer

Review – The Principle of the Path to Where You Want to Be

Andy Stanley has written some great books. So when he puts out a somewhat average one, it is hard to be excited about it. His best books are those which are not based on a teaching series - like Communicating for a Change, and 7 Practices of Effective Ministry. Usually when a book is based… Continue reading Review – The Principle of the Path to Where You Want to Be
