The King in His Beauty by Thomas R. Schreiner
"In this biblical theology Thomas Schreiner studies the themes of the books of the Bible (Paul's epistles are grouped together in a single section, as are some other smaller sections, like Luke-Acts). Schreiner either follows a thematic approach or..." Read more of this review »
The King in His Beauty by Thomas R. Schreiner
"There are some books that are good for theologians, but not good for laypeople. Rare is a book which pleases both. This is one, in my opinion. Tom Schreiner makes each book/genre of the Bible easy to understand by examining its various themes and..." Read more of this review »

Excellent! Helped me grasp the big picture of the Bible.
Presuppositional Apologetics by Greg L. Bahnsen
"Following in the footsteps of Cornelius Van Til, Greg Bahnsen passionately and logically argues for presuppositional apologetics—not as one among many approaches, but as the only right approach in presenting the Christian faith. For Bahnsen, all o..." Read more of this review »

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”

Cornelius Plantinga Jr.
“On Thanksgiving Day, 2011, my pastor Peter Jonker preached a marvelous sermon on Psalm 65 with an introduction from the life of Seth MacFarlane, who had been on NPR’s Fresh Air program with Terry Gross. MacFarlane is a cartoonist and comedian. He’s the creator of the animated comedy show “The Family Guy,” which my pastor called “arguably the most cynical show on television.” Terry Gross asked MacFarlane about 9/11. It seems that on that day of national tragedy MacFarlane had been booked on American Airlines Flight 11, Boston to LA, but he had arrived late at Logan airport and missed it. As we know, hijackers flew Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. My preacher said, “MacFarlane should have been on that plane. He should have been dead at 29 years of age. But somehow, at the end of that terrible day, he found himself healthy and alive, still able to turn his face toward the sun.” Terry Gross asked the inevitable question: “After that narrow escape, do you think of the rest of your life as a gift?” “No,” said MacFarlane. “That experience didn’t change me at all. It made no difference in the way I live my life. It made no difference in the way I look at things. It was just a coincidence.” And my preacher commented that MacFarlane had created “a missile defense system” against the threat of incoming gratitude — which might have lodged in his soul and changed him forever. MacFarlane, “the Grinch who stole gratitude,” perfectly set up what Peter Jonker had to say to us about how it is right and proper for us to give thanks to God at all times and in all places, and especially when our life has been spared.”
