- A Baptist Church on the Slippery Slope: A Review of Robert Bakss’ Worship Wars -- "Worship Wars is dangerous because the author presents the music issue as a matter of personal preference."
- Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible -- "Ward combines good writing and common sense to explain why English speakers today should both appreciate the KJV and benefit from excellent modern translations."
- Book Review: Duties of Christian Fellowship, by John Owen -- "Owen’s book, originally titled Eschol: A Cluster of the Grapes of Canaan, is based upon four principles “with respect to the management of churches agreed upon by all who long for the increase of the power of godliness, though they may belong to different denominations and persuasions”."
- Book Review – Henry Morris Study Bible -- "There are numerous study notes throughout. What I especially appreciated about the study notes is that I found them to be both sufficiently technical and very readable."
- Book Review: Immeasurable, by Skye Jethani -- "I can’t think of another critic of contemporary evangelicalism who has more popularly and winsomely explained why so many professed believers settle for the sugar-laced gruel that is so much of the modern church scene. But..."
- Critical Review: Encyclopedia of English Language Bible Versions -- "This work, for some of its odd choices of detail included, is definitely worth including in the reference section of any library, undergrad or graduate, with any sort of Biblical studies program."
- From Shadow to Substance -- "Based on my archival research, the book also offers new and relevant biographical and contextual information about the Particular Baptists." (Announcement rather than review)
- Holman KJV Reader’s Bible – Review -- "It has a black letter text with 9-point with a generous leading. The font is dark and sharp, and is consistent throughout the text. It retains italics for supplied words."

- Review: A Doubter’s Guide to the Bible -- "A Doubter Guide to the Bible is a great popular-level handbook-sized piece of literature that presents the basic narrative of the Bible while at the same time dealing with difficult issues."
- Review: Alexander Hamilton, by Ron Chernow -- "Before reading this book, my thoughts coincided with the popular image of Hamilton as a brilliant but overbearing man who was frequently involved in scandals or in conflicts with other Founders."
- They Say We Are Infidels: On the Run from ISIS with Persecuted Christians in the Middle East -- "Belz traveled multiple times to dangerous locations in Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon to report firsthand how Christians were being driven from their homes, tortured, raped, and killed."
