12 Oracles: The Minor Prophets in Verse

Thank you to my wife for the following book review on 12 Oracles: The Minor Prophets in Verse, written by Steve White. The book, as the author himself states, is a study of the so-called minor prophets in verse form. This is not perhaps an obvious choice of subject or medium but it is maybe […]

I was looking through my book collection recently and came across a book called: Jeremiah: Speaking for God in a time of crisis. After reading it I decided to write a book review on it. Unfortunately though following an unsuccessful internet search for it I believe that the book may no longer be in print. […]

The 100 Minute Bible

The 100 Minute Bible, which retails at little more than the cost of a sandwich is, I think, a real gem! In summary, it gives an overview of the main events and characters in the Bible. The author, Michael Hinton, has divided the book into 50 brief chapters, 17 from the Old Testament and the […]

Christmas can be a very busy time of the year as we prepare for the big day. There is the card writing, present buying, food purchasing and so much more that we can easily forget what we are actually celebrating! To that end I would like to recommend a book by Derek Tidball called “Preparing […]

Leviticus-Deuteronomy (Bible Study Commentary)

C.H. Spurgeon The People’s Preacher

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was one of the most famous preachers in history and there are plenty of books and websites devoted to him. Therefore, it’s quite a challenge to write a biography that offers a fresh perspective on him. Peter Morden though in his biography entitled “C.H.

J C Ryle by Eric Russell

If you have ever read any book or article written by J.C. Ryle then I expect you were challenged by his writing. Eric Russell in his biography of John Charles Ryle introduces the reader to the man described as “that man of granite with the heart of a child”. Interestingly, Ryle did not originally plan […]

The first part of the book looks at Tom Wright and summaries his theology whilst the remainder, as you may guess from the long title, looks at the outworking of his […]
