brother-walter-writings-e-book

This Monday will be the International Symposium for the The Master’s Academy International (TMAI) which is involved with training Pastors and Bible teachers overseas.  Every year they have the International Symposium the Monday before the week of Shepherd’s Conference and there’s believers from several dozen countries present.

One of the tables will feature works and ministry of Brother Wally.

We are hosting the Word Document to his E-Books on our blog.  There’s three titles: Christian Epistemology, Humanism, and Doctrine of Grace.  I have also included in this post the table of contents so people could have a better idea of what’s in these E-books.

If you are dropping by from the International Symposium drop us a comment!

work-and-our-labor-in-the-lord

James M. Hamilton Jr. Work and Our Labor in the Lord.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, January 31st, 2017.  144 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Over the years there has been more books coming out on a biblical view of work and vocation but what I like about this particular work is that the author James M. Hamilton Jr. takes a biblical theology approach to the topic.  By biblical theology I mean a study of what Scripture has to say with the consideration of the progressive revelation of the Bible in terms of redemptive history and the canonical context of passages that is cited.  I have been enjoying more and more books taking a biblical theological approach to a subject as it helps avoid some of the claims that systematic theology is merely engaged in proof text.

grace-of-god-and-common-grace

The Grace of God is a rich topic.  Here’s a seven part miniseries on the grace of God as an attribute of God and its theological implications that was originally part of a larger series.

After each title of the session I gave links to the MP3 audio and PDF of the outline.

My first book review for 2017!

god-the-son-incarnate

Stephen J. Wellum. God the Son Incarnate.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, November 30th 2016.  480 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This book is a part of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  I appreciated the series overall and this work on Christology is now among my top favorites in the series.  It is quite a meaty work and reading it was no small undertaking.  Reading this book makes me appreciate just how much Christian scholarship exists and how much that I still need to tap into.  I learned a lot reading this book.  In my opinion I think Stephen Wellum’s work is ideal as a seminary text book and for those who desire to seriously study the doctrines related to Christ more deeply.  In this review I am going to first summarize each parts and chapters of the book and end with some brief constructive criticisms.

does-jeremiah-3-deny-gods-omniscience

Jeremiah 3:7-10 is a passage that someone cited as proof that the Bible does not teach God’s omniscience.

Let me quote the passage:

I thought, ‘After she has done all these things she will return to Me’; but she did not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it. 8 And I saw that for all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear; but she went and was a harlot also. 9 Because of the lightness of her harlotry, she polluted the land and committed adultery with stones and trees. 10 Yet in spite of all this her treacherous sister Judah did not return to Me with all her heart, but rather in deception,” declares the Lord.” (Jeremiah 3:7-10)

Let’s take a closer look.

the-priest-with-dirty-clothes

R.C. Sproul. The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, February 10th 2011. 45 pp.

5 out of 5

Among the hundreds of books I have reviewed on this blog over the years this is the second time that I reviewed a children’s book (the first was God’s Servant Job: A Poem with a Promise).  I am reviewing this book because I really enjoyed The Priest with Dirty Clothes by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book very much and the book has led to deeper conversations about spiritual matters.
