Book Review of Gospel by JD Greear

I finally got around to reading Gospel by JD Greear and I love almost everything about it. In fact my almost is so picky I hesitate to mention it.  But I must. And I suppose I should get the almost out of the way because I don't want it to get in the way of the rest of this fantastic book. The entire book has at its core a simple daily prayer that the author ...

Book Review of Accidental Pharisees by Larry Osborne

Last year, I ran into Larry Osborne in an airport.  Larry has been a mentor to me for several years and he is one of those guys that just oozes wisdom out of every one of his pores.  So when he asked me if I would consider endorsing his new book, I knew I would say "yes" before I even read it. Then I read it. And then I said "yes." His new book is called ...

Repost: Review of “Father, Son, & Holy Spirit” by Bruce Ware

Because I am working through the Trinity on my blog over the next month and I referenced Dr. Bruce Ware's book on my most recent 4 minute video, I decided to repost my review of his book originally posted May 16, 2011. There are few biblical concepts that seem more out of reach to the mind of mere mortals than that of the Trinity.  To try to mentally grasp ...

Review of “Three Free Sins” by Steve Brown

Overview I'm sort of used to getting negative emails after teaching at Riv (I don't think you ever get fully used to it). What I haven't gotten used to is that the most negative emails always come after the messages that include the most grace. When you tell people to do something, they may not be ready to do it but they fully embrace the "truth" of your ...

Review of “What Would Jesus Drink?” by Brad Whittington

I quoted from the book What Would Jesus Drink? by Brad Whittington during my teaching on 1 Corinthians 8 this past weekend at Riv and got a lot of positive feedback regarding both the message and the excerpt I read.  Since many people wanted to know how to get a copy of the book, I figured I'd throw a review up here on the blog. Overview "Most likely any of ...

As part of the 1 Corinthians series we are working through at Riv, I am dedicating my Wednesday book reviews for the next few weeks to books on marriage, singleness, and divorce. Today's review is a repost of a book review from a year or so ago. A few weeks ago at Riv, I asked for a single person to volunteer to read the book "Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye" and ...
