Archive for December, 2018

Wow fell asleep for 13 hours after our retreat.  Haven’t done that in years.  So hence this much later post.

This is the last day of the year.  Earlier I asked you all “What was your favorite book in 2018?”  So now here’s my best books I read in 2018.  It’s not easy to narrow it down from the many books I read but overall this is the best ones.  I hope to read more good books next year!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading many months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of 1 Thessalonians 5:16.  Here is my translation:

in order that the word of the Lord will spread and be glorified just as also for

Sidney Greidanus. From Chaos to Cosmos: Creation to New Creation.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, October 31st 2018.  244 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the fifth book I read from the “Short Studies in Biblical Theology” series published by Crossway.  This series is a wonderful introduction for the layman on biblical theology in which one see the content of God’s truth being taught according to the consideration of the flow of Scripture as it progressed in redemptive history.  I have immensely enjoyed the other four volumes.  I also enjoyed this particular volume.  This present work explores the theme of chaos to cosmos starting with the first chapter of Genesis and ending with the last chapter Revelation.  This is a theme that is literally from the first page to the last page of the Bible and yet it is not often as obvious or noted by preachers and teachers today so this book is definitely helpful.

I somehow forgot to make a table of contents for the discussion guide but putting it up now.

Below are links to posts with questions that might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.  I recommend this book and you can read my   At this time I think this is THE book that I would recommend as an introduction to Presuppositional Apologetics.
