Book Review: Jefferson's Religion, by Stephen J. Vicchio

Started by Zomok, steve Dec 4. 0 Replies

This small book of 150 pages with its index and reference pages is about the religious views of Thomas Jefferson.  It is obvious that Jefferson did not fit smoothly into any catagory and many claims have been made about the man. Each of the six…Continue

Book Review: "Why Science does not disprove God", by Amir Aczel

Started by Zomok, steve Nov 6. 0 Replies

This is a library checkout and a newly published title. On the inside jacket I noticed the price of 27.99, which is pretty high for a smallish hardback book. It is fully indexed and references are plenty.  This is a fairly good read by a scientist…Continue

Does anyone have a collection of Commentaries?  It is true that much of the notes can be viewed online but I still possess a small collection of actual volumes. I have~~~

*Matthew Henry's complete Bible commentaries..(in 6 volumes).

*Matthew Poole's (in three volumes).

*Jamieson, Faussett, and Brown (one large volume).

*Parallel Commentary on the New Testament: Spurgeon, Wesley, Henry (one v.).

*The One Volume Bible Commentary, by Rev. Dummelow.

Library haul:

I checked these items out from the local library--

*"Who is Jesus", by By Darrell L. Bock.  It looks good thus far.  Darrell Bock is a level-headed cosvertive scholar.. Book report material...?

*"Opening Paul's Letters", by Patrick Gray.  I have not read a single page...

*"The Historical Jesus, five views", by (edited by) Beilby and Eddy.. I have not even opened the covers yet.

*"Eyewitness to Jesus", by Thiede and D'Ancona. Looks good so far but only opened a couple pages...

I just picked up a copy of a new book, "All you want to know about HELL" by Steve Gregg and have read through the first few chapters.  I must say that it is a good read.  I am pleased so far.

Join this honest group and give your opinion on some books.

I am going to pick me up a copy of Steve Gregg's new book, All about Hell.  On his program, The Narrowpath, I have heard him speak of it a number of times.  It looks like it will turn into a classic.  I know that he presents the three basic views: Traditional, Annihilationism, and Restorationism.

Because Steve Gregg does not go along with the common dispensational theology, I am willing to bet that the general Christian bookstores won't carry his book.

Sometimes I find good reads online.  I found The founder of Christianity, by C. H. Dodd. Dodd was a prominent British theologian, in the middle of the 20th century.  I remember reading this book years ago but here is an online link of the complete text---

Christian Teen Nonfiction

The Christian teen nonfiction book entitled Character Concert covers topics using cartoon-like drawings.  One youth chaplain said of the book: "I was very impressed with it.  The way you have chosen to present the concepts should be very appealing to young people."  Character Concert is available from amazon.com.
