The year is almost over and I’m trying to crank out all my reviews of stuff I read in 2017.  Here are the last two comic books I read for 2017.

James Tynion IV.  Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 4: Deus Ex Machina. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, December 19th 2017. 144 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is volume four of Batman’s Detective Comics.  The volume collects Detective Comics issues #957-962.  In the past I have not really enjoyed Batman working as a team but I think either I am getting used to it or the story for volume four really helped me enjoy it.  I must say though that this volume was enjoyable.

Here are two Christian booklets I read towards the end of this year.

William P. Smith.  When Bad Things Happen: Thoughtful Answers to Hard Questions.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth  Press, September 1st 2008. 22 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This was a helpful and edifying booklet.  It is a “minibook” that is part of the “Resources for Personal Change” series published by New Growth Press.  The author William Smith is an adjunct faculty in the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation has written an excellent resource for those who are going through trials and asking the question of why God allows bad things to happen.  It is an excellent resource for Biblical and Pastoral Counselors to give the counselee and have them read and highlight/underline for study and meditation.  For my own use I read this title along with a church member I was discipling and counseling as a pastor.

This is a recent four part series on Apologetics from the implication of Jesus’ own apologetics in Luke 20, which is an underrated chapter in the Bible that has implication for how we do apologetics.

What better time to finish and review this book on Christ’s incarnation than on Christmas day!

Andreas J. Kostenberger and Alexander Stewart. The First Days of Jesus: The Story of the Incarnation.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 30th 2015.  272 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon
