A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  Thought I post on comics after Tom’s recent post on DC comics.

Mark Waid.  Batman in Barcelona: Dragon’s Knight. New York, NY: DC Comics, July 1st, 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Usually we read of Batman doing his mission in his beloved city of Gotham.  But what is it like if Batman went to another city to fight one of his villains?  In this one shot story Batman goes to Spain to the city of Barcelona to fight the Killer Croc.  I love the premise that Batman is in Barcelona in another city and where the police doesn’t recognize who Batman is!

James Anderson. Why Should I Believe Christianity?.  Ross-Shire, UK: Christian Focus Publications, July 20th 2016. 240 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Looking for an apologetics’ book on why believe in Christianity that would be biblically sound in its doctrine and also clear and reasonable in its worldview analysis?  This book might be for you.  Written by a professor of philosophy and theology and Christian Apologetics at Reformed Theological Seminary this book presents arguments and reasoning from someone that is quite capable and qualified to discuss the veracity of the Christian worldview.  I also like how the author’s presentation is shaped by Presuppositional apologetics!

Bruce Ray. Help! My Friend is Suicidal. Wapwallopen, PA: Shepherd Press, December 3rd 2014. 64 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you in a difficult situation in which someone you know is feeling suicidal?  Are you afraid of making the wrong moves, saying the wrong words and afraid of pushing your friend over the edge?  If so this resource is for you.  This sixty four page biblical counseling resource is a must-buy.  It is the third title that I read from Shepherd Press’ “Lifeline Mini-books” series.  As of right now this is the best booklet I would recommend on the topic of suicide because of the combination of this being biblical, practical and the author speaks from his experience as a pastor and chaplain for almost twenty five years to emergency services and first responder.

A weekend reading review, because Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading.

Simon Anglim, Phyllis G. Jestice, Rob S. Rice, Scott M. Rusch, John Serrati.  Fighting Techniques of the Ancient World.  New York, NY: Saint Martin’s Press, January 1st 2003. 256 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a book on military history and military techniques during ancient times?  This book might be for you!  Written by a team of experts on military matters with academic and published credentials this book is quite informative and engaging concerning military matters of equipping, tactics and combat skills for warfare.  The work covers largely Europe and the Middle East before the advent of gunpowder.  While the subtitle of the book states it looks at 3000 BC-500 AD most of the book concentrates on the Greek and Roman classical period.
