* Paradox and Perseverance: Hanserd Knollys, Particular Baptist Pioneer in Seventeenth-Century England -- "Dennis Bustin has done all students of Baptist history and theology a great service with his work on Hanserd Knollys."
* Rediscovering the Natural Law in Reformed Theological Ethics -- "Calvin, Peter Martyr Vermigli, Johannes Althusius and others accepted and made positive use of the natural law tradition."
* Review of God’s Rascal: J. Frank Norris and the Beginnings of Southern Fundamentalism -- "Should this volume be on the list of the one hundred books you intend to read this year? If you are interested in Texas Baptist history, it needs to be in the top five."
* Review of Work Matters: Lessons from Scripture -- "Of the four books on the subject of “work” I have read in the last eight months, R. Paul Stevens, Work Matters, is on the top of my list."
* Review: Virginia Broughton: The Life and Writings of a National Baptist Missionary -- "Tomeiko Carter offers access to an influential figure in African American religious history by editing the works of Virginia Broughton."
* Studies in the Pauline Epistles: Essays in Honor of Douglas J. Moo -- "I don’t believe you will regret your investment in this engaging collection of essays."
* The true 'Little House' story makes a splash in US -- "First published in November by the tiny South Dakota Historical Society Press, "Pioneer Girl" depicts an unglossed view of the 19th century Midwest, a marked departure from the bucolic imagery of the "Little House" series."
