Book Review: Politics According to the Bible, by Wayne Grudem

This is a library checkout. Mr. Grudem is a prolific writer. He earlier produced a Systematic Theology.  This newer book seems to be a companion to his earlier work and has similar design and size.  It is 619 pages with full index of both names and…Continue

Book Review: Reasoning from the scriptures, by Ron Rhodes

(Subtitle: "with the Jehovah Witnesses")This is a book meant to combat cults like the Jehovah Witnesses and such books are definitely needed. Sadly many books of this sort (this one too) are usually very flawed.  I will say more about the main flaw…Continue

Book Review: Americas Christian History: The untold story, by Gary DeMar

Started by Zomok, steve May 8. 0 Replies

Gary DeMar is a somewhat prolific Christian writer and I possess a few of his works.  This one was published back in (2nd ed.) 1995 but still has much good material.  Truth and history are pretty stable.  I found my copy in a book store at only 2…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---

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
