IVP’s Telling God’s Story book review – Rating 8.5

Telling God's Story John W. Wright IVP

I’ve been doing quite a few books on expository preaching, so when I came across this one, I wanted to check it out for a different perspective.  Telling God’s Story is written by John W. Wright and  published by InterVarsity Press.    It is a very challenging book to read from the aspect of putting a twist on how we view the Bible narrative from our culture in North Continue reading

Zondervan NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible Review – Rating: 9.3

Zondervan NIV, Cultural Backgrounds Study BibleI received an email awhile ago that had information that Zondervan was coming out with a new Cultural Background Study Bible.  Well, that piqued my interest as cultural background was something that was looked at quite a bit in our Inductive Bible Study training course we did at our church.  Then I read who was involved in the project and one of the authors involved, I have a commentary by him that is fantastic!  Craig S. Keener does an excellent job with New Testament cultural background and if the other author (John H. Walton) does similar work in the Old Testament as Dr. Keener does for the New Testament, this new Study Bible has the potential to be extremely Continue reading

Anointed Expository Preaching book review – rating 9.1

Anointed Expository PreachingI have heard some very good things about Stephen F. Olford and was happy when I got a copy of his Anointed Expository Preaching book from B&H Academic to do a review on it.  This book is a very good read as it is very practical and has a lot of wisdom in it.  Unlike some other books on preaching, this one covers many topics that also include the life of the Continue reading

Holman HCSB Notetaking Bible Review – Rating: 8.3

HCSB Notetaking BibleI know that right now notetaking Bibles and especially the process of “journaling” is kind of the new rage in reading through and studying your Bible.  With that said, as of right now, journaling (doing decorative art and text in the margins and over the top of Scripture) is not really my thing personally.  If people do it with the correct motive – not doing it just for making impressive art, but rather to help them study and learn the Word of God – then I am all for it.  I have been known to write Continue reading
