Books That I Read in May 2015

#1 – One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven by Mark Cahill. This is a good resource if you are looking for some helpful tips or pointers on how to transitions normal conversation to Gospel-oriented conversation. Cahill’s love for witnessing is infectious. You will be encouraged, convicted and admonished to share the Gospel more as you read Cahill’s enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel. BOOK RATING: 8 out of 10 stars.

#2 – The Scripture Cannot Be Broken edited by John MacArthur. This collection of essays from scholars (alive and dead) deal with the inerrancy of Scripture. Because I have been reading a number of books on this subject in 2015, I felt many of the issues to be repetitive in comparison to other books I have already read. However, it is a nice resource for someone looking for something a little more scholarly on the subject. In the book you will be allowed to read on the subject from Harold Lindsell, J. Barton Payne, John Murray, J.I. Packer, John Frame, B.B. Warfield, E.J. Young, R. Laird Harris, Alan Stibbs, Robert Preus, Rene Pache, Paul Feinberg, Roger Nicole, and Gordon Lewis. BOOK RATING: 8 out of 10 stars.

#3 – Heaven edited by Christopher Morgan and Robert Peterson. You can read my review of this book written earlier in the month. BOOK RATING: 10 out of 10 stars.

#4 – Are Miraculous Gifts for Today? Four Views edited by Wayne Grudem. I have been through this book before and each time I read it. The book takes the four primary views on miraculous gifts (e.g., tongues, healing, prophecy), gives an author an opportunity to defend it and then the author three others to critique his view. The four views are “cessasionist”, “open but cautious,” “third wave”, and “Pentecostal/Charismatic.” If you are looking for a brief introduction to one or all of these views, this would be a good start. BOOK RATING: 8 out of 10 stars.
