Books I Read November 2015

#1 – Praying the Bible by Donald Whitney (published by Crossway Books, 2015). The method Whitney proposes is not the only method for praying, but it certainly is a helpful one. Whitney gives practical help on how to use verses and chapters in the Bible as vocabulary and theme for our petitions for the Lord. His goal is to help Christians cease from praying the same things about the same things. This is a highly practically and helpful took for any Christian frustrated with being consistent in their prayer life.

BOOK RATING: 10 out of 10 stars.

#2 – When Sinners Say ‘I Do’: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage by Dave Harvey (published by Shepherd Press, 2007). You can read more about this book here.

BOOK RATING: 9 out of 10 stars.

#3 – Found: God’s Will by John MacArthur (published by Victor Books, 1973). MacArthur proposed that once a Christian has answered five questions regarding God’s will for your life, than you can do anything you want when determining God’s plan for your life. The five questions you must answer, he writes, are: (1) Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ? (2) Are you walking in the Spirit? (3) Are you living a sexually pure life? (4) Does Scripture say anything about it? (5) Are you willing to suffer? After those questions are answered, you aren’t left with much direction, which is why he says, “Do what you want.”

BOOK RATING: 8 out of 10 stars.

#4 – What Does the Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality? By Kevin DeYoung (published by Crossway Books, 2015) –In the book, DeYoung gives an explanation on this view from the five most common Scriptural battlegrounds: Genesis 1-2; 19; Leviticus 18; 20; Romans 1; I Corinthians 6; I Timothy 1. He also answers some of the most common objections from those who differ in their view that DeYoung takes. I highly recommend this book.

BOOK RATING: 10 out of 10 stars.
