Thinking through Paul, and other book reviews

The posting of book reviews does not constitute endorsement of the books or book reviews that are linked.

* Book Review on Biblical Portraits of Creation: Celebrating the Maker of Heaven and Earth -- "Each chapter provides an exposition of an Old Testament biblical text relating to creation."
* Book Reviews: Come Let Us Reason Together by Baruch Maoz -- "For anyone looking for clarity on what Messianic Judaism is and a sound scriptural argument against it this book will prove to be a great resource."
* Book Reviews: Thinking Through Paul --"Longenecker and Still not only provide readers the opportunity to think about Paul, but also help them understand how to think “through Paul”."
* Book Review: Disability and the Gospel -- "Disability and The Gospel is a thought-provoking book...It is about how people should treat each other IN LIGHT OF THE FACT that humans have been created in God's Image."
Fullerism or Calvinism? by Peter Lumpkins -- "...a brief review of Fullerism as Opposed to Calvinism: A Historical and Theological Comparison of the Missiology of Andrew Fuller and John Calvin (hereafter 'Fullerism') by A. Chadwick Mauldin..."
* My Review of “Anne Steele and her Spiritual Vision” -- "Anne Steele is long gone, but her verses still speak and Mrs. Wong has represented her well."
* Preaching the Farewell Discourse: An Expository Walk-Through of John 13:31–17:26 -- "It is evident that Kellum is text-driven rather than reader-oriented in his approach."
* Review: Come, Let Us Reason Together: The Unity of Jews and Gentiles in the Church by Baruch Maoz -- "Baruch writes as a Jew who loves Jesus...He mines the New Testament, in particular Paul’s epistles, to argue against having separate “Jewish” congregations and extra-biblical forms within the worship service."
* Review: Preaching in the Holy Spirit by Albert N. Martin -- "I will seek to demonstrate that His agency (His active power) and His operations (the effects of that power) are direct and immediate in and on the preacher in the act of preaching, in contrast to those operations that come through intervening agencies."
* Review: Suffering and Sovereignty: John Flavel and the Puritans on Afflictive Providence -- "...the book is a summary of a larger scholarly work. This slimmed-down book is both readable and concise, and includes limited but informative interaction with other scholars."
