John Piper. Coronavirus and Christ.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, April 28th 2020.  112 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: PDF and other format at Desiring God

Purchase: Amazon

According to the Bible what are the possible things God is doing with the Coronavirus?  In this book by pastor and theologian John Piper the author looks at the issue from a Gospel driven perspective.  Piper is nuanced in the beginning to say that no doubt readers will know more about what will happen with the virus situation than the book is able to capture at the moment he wrote this book; instead Piper is going to focus on God’s work in crisis and also look at the issue of death and suffering from an eternal perspective.  I am grateful that Piper wrote this book.

A late post today since after my lectures last night I just couldn’t type up a post!  Ever have one of those days?

Charles H. Spurgeon. Free Will a Slave.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, December 3rd 2018. 18 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

In 2016 I read quite a number of works by the famous English preacher Charles Spurgeon and since then I have desired to read more of his work though sadly I haven’t been able to read any of his works until now in 2020.  This booklet is Spurgeon’s defense of Calvinism by responding to John 5:40 which some Arminians in his day thought it was “one of the great guns of the Arminians” which I’m quoting from Spurgeon in the opening sentences in his booklet.  What Spurgeon aim to show in this booklet is how John 5:40 is actually a support for Calvinism instead.

Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield.  The Plan Of Salvation.  Seattle, WA: Amazon Digital Services LLC, March 21, 2017. 82 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Monergism Books

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Are you looking for a written work that would help you think deeper concerning God’s work of saving sinners?  Check out Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield’s theological classic The Plan of Salvation.  Warfield was a former professor at Princeton Theological Seminary during the 1800s and the turn of the century for the early 1900s.  The book is based upon his lectures that he delivered in 1914.  Looking up this book on Goodreads it seems that this isn’t as well-known as his other works since there’s few who have reviewed this book.  I think that this is rather unfortunate as I was immensely blessed to have read this book.

Albert Martin. What Is a Biblical Christian?  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, March 28th 2014. 22 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

If you can give a small booklet to someone that explain what is Christianity and how someone can be saved to go to heaven what would it be?  For me it is this booklet by preacher Al Martin titled What Is a Biblical Christian?  This is published by Chapel Library, a wonderful organization that reprints a lot of Christian historical classics that is doctrinally sound and Gospel centered.  The presentation of the Gospel in the book is clear and biblical, something that is very important for the sake of the salvation of any unbeliever that is reading this work.  I recommend this not only for nonbelievers as an evangelistic tool but also for seasoned pastors in the ministry to learn from the author’s example of a clear and biblical presentation of the Gospel.  Even for everyday Christians who already are saved this is still an edifying read!  One can’t be reminded of the Gospel enough!

This is a Free E Book by Diane Poythress.  She is the wife of Christian scholar Vern Poythress.  Vern Poythress is one of the rare individual who is a genius; while he is a New Testament professor he’s one of those guys that knows a lot and is down to earth about it.  He’s written on a Christian view of hermeneutics, logic, math, language, science and of course the Bible.  But enough about Vern; there’s a free electronic version of a book written by his wife.

Charles H. Spurgeon. The Secret of Power in Prayer.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 17th 2016. 22 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

This booklet is based upon a sermon delivered by the Prince of Preacher, Charles Spurgeon on the topic of prayer.  I was looking for a short devotional work to encourage my prayer life and this certainly encouraged me to appreciate the privilege of praying to God.  This work is based upon the verse John 15:7.  John 15:7 in the NASB states, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  Although Spurgeon preached this message back in 1888 it is relevant even for today, which is a testimony of Spurgeon’s faithful preaching of the Bible, which of course is always relevant for our spiritual life.

Christian Audio has made this book available for free for the month of October 2017.  The book is The Whole Christ by Sinclair Ferguson.  It is quite appropriate that they offered something solid in light of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation!

I have a copy of this book at home and was planning on reading it sometime in the future but now I’m also glad I get to download this book in audio format!

Charles H. Spurgeon. Heart of the Gospel.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, March 28th 2014. 22 pp.

This is another message by Spurgeon that I read in 2016 in light of my hunger to read things by the Prince of Preacher.  This booklet focuses on 2 Corinthians 5:20-21.  What I appreciate about Spurgeon is that he is essentially timeless because he preaches the Gospel and definitely 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 is a Gospel text.  Although this was originally a sermon by Spurgeon delivered in 1886 it is still relevant for people to read and hear it today.  As I read this booklet I wished there would be more contemporary preachers who embodied the spirit of Spurgeon’s preaching.

Here’s an update for the end of 2007 on Reformed Theological Seminary’s mp3s provided on iTunes for free since since it first debuted. Veritasdomain wishes you a Happy New Year for 2008.

Revisting itunes.rts.edu has revealed some changes:

“Educational Ministry of the Church” under Practical Theology A couple Chapel messages for Fall 2007 have been updated. And finally 2 new Seminar series “Worship Wars, Holy Kisses, and Names for God: An Evangelical Model for Contextual Theologizing” by Dr. Steve Strauss and “The Calvin I Never Knew” by Dr. Frank A. James III

They divided the plenary sessions from the seminar sessions for the 2007 and 2006 Westminister Confessions for Today Conferences.

They removed the commencement and other special event lectures.

And finally they added a large amount of videos, mainly promoting RTS, while organizing the original brochures by campus location.
