I read this once before, a long time ago, and only remembered enough to remember that I had read it. But then I was given an audio version of it for my birthday last month, and have been listening to it in my truck. I really enjoyed it, thoroughly en ...more

I read this many years ago, and have been giving it away in my pre-marital counseling, also for many years. I recently decided I ought to read it again, and was pleased to see that the book had weathered the years well. There are parts that are a bit ...more

Good. First read it in 2002. Listened to an audio version of it narrated by Max McLean in 2015. That was good too. McLean's reading is good, although it sometimes borders on creepy. The Puritans represented are really solid. Their prayers sometimes v ...more

Riots, Revolutions, and the Scottish Covenanters by L. Charles Jackson

This is an important book for a number of reasons. The first is the timing — and it is almost as though a higher power were at work. In this book, Charles Jackson gives a fresh historical overview of the work of Alexander Henderson, one of the stalwa ...more

I haven't read a lot of Pratchett -- I think this is only my second one -- but I do enjoy reading him for the color and the metaphor. The way he turns a figure of speech on the lathe will frequently leave you just sitting there in your chair with a t ...more

A good sturdy volume on sticking close to the text. Very helpful for preachers. I am reminded of the time when I was in junior high and my father was leading a bunch of us in an inductive Bible study. We were all sitting in a circle with our Bibles o ...more

I enjoyed this book, which was in different measures confused and insightful. The difficulty is that when it was insightful, he would use his own peculiar definitions of terms (e.g. capitalism), and when it was confused, he would apply critiques to s ...more

A classic book of evangelical piety, and very good. I may have read it decades ago, but am glad I read it (again, perhaps) now.

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
