It's that time of year again! Below are the books that I read in 2019, including some comments. Enjoy! The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law (#1) by Connor Boyack - Reading this series with the kids has been a real joy! You have to get the books for your children. Sunday as a First-Day Sabbath by Phillip G. Kayser - A short little read making some really interesting arguments on why Sunday is the First-Day Sabbath of each week. Worship in Spirit and Truth by John M. Frame - A fun book on an important topic. Dr. Frame is always [...]

Books I’ve Read in 2018

So it's that time of year again, and I hope some of these books will make it to your bookshelf---there are some good ones! You can go back and look at past years if you so choose. (2012, 2015, 2016, 2017). Also, if you're on GoodReads, let's connect. You can also follow me on Amazon. Church Shift by Sunday Adelaja -- An interesting book from a very curious pastor. The story behind Pastor Adelaja's work in Ukraine is incredibly fascinating. There's a lot you can learn from this book, despite the fact that it may not be inside your "tradition." [...]

Books I’ve Read in 2017

Apparently we can now classify this as an "annual" thing, because this marks the third annual "Books I've Read" post. You can go back and see 2012, 2015, and 2016. [Don't ask about 2013-2014. I read some books, I'm sure of it, but for whatever reason I didn't post anything regarding those years. Oh, and 2012 was weak-sauce so don't sweat that one too much. If you're on GoodReads, let's connect. You can also follow me on Amazon.] I'm a touch disappointed that my count was low this year, but after moving across the country to plant a new church, [...]

Books I’ve Read in 2016

By |2016-12-31T10:05:55-05:00December 31st, 2016|Blog|

Another year, another stack of books. Some I highly recommend, know. If you're looking for an idea of ones I think you should read, drop me a comment. This is, for the most part, the order in which I read them. Genesis: A Commentary by Bruce Waltke -- A great commentary. Not too technical, but technical enough to help you wade through the Hebrew intricacies. It's evangelical, which is always helpful. Preaching Christ from Genesis by Sidney Greidanus -- I found myself enjoying this book at times, and not liking it at other times. I love Greidanus' approach to [...]

Books I’ve Read in 2015

Below are the books I've read in 2015. If you don't care much about this, that's okay, no hard feelings. Some may be like me--always looking for a good book; so here goes. Many of these I would highly recommend. They are in (pretty close) order to how I read them this year. The Christ of the Covenants by O. Palmer Robertson -- getting covenant theology straight is important to the biblical narrative. This is a great book for understanding how God's covenants relate to each other. Christ and Your Problems by Jay Adams -- a great little resource. Highly recommend [...]
