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.

Opening: We often think of God’s righteousness in two ways: as God treating the righteous righteously and punishing the unrighteous. But did you know there is a third way that God’s righteousness is expressed?

Purpose: In this session we shall explore three questions and one statement concerning what is the doctrine of forensic justification.

    1. What is Justification?
    2. Why we need God to declare us legally righteous? (2 Reasons)
    3. Why can’t we be justified by the law or works? (4 Reasons)
    4. God declare us legally righteous because of the works of Christ

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.   I got this book after I recently finished Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2 with my kids.

I got this book after first reading volume 2 of Bible infographics for kids.  The second volume was so good that I thought I should buy the first volume.  The book certainly met my expectation.  This is a fun and informative book that kids will enjoy and they will learn from it about the Bible and what the Bible teaches through its many pictures, graph and charts.  Harvest House Publishers did a good job with this one!

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  This book just came out last week and its currently #1 in Amazon’s category of New Release for Children’s Bible study.  At this moment it is relatively reasonable in its price too!

 

Harvest House Bible Inforgraphics Team. Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, May 7th 2019.  56 pp.

This is a fun and informative book for kids concerning the Bible published by Harvest House Publishers.  I went through this book together with my kids at night and they enjoyed the pictures, graph and facts.  The details include truths that are more like “fun facts” but at times there were some very good instruction concerning more weighty matters that was extremely helpful.  The artwork is well done and really reinforce the content being taught.  After reading this volume I’m considering getting volume 1 which is my vote of approval for this book.
