- A New Book!—God of Our Fathers: Classical Theism for the Contemporary Church -- "There are some truly outstanding essays in the book and...E.J. Hutchinson’s work on Melanchthon alone is worth the price of entry..."
- A Review of James H. Slatton’s W. H. Whitsitt: The Man and the Controversy -- "Slatton’s biography is a good introduction to Whitsitt’s life and to the controversy he precipitated in 1896, but it deserves close attention especially because it uncovers for the first time the contents of Whitsitt’s secret journals."
- A Review of the Modern English Version-- "Like the KJV and NKJV, the MEV is a formal correspondence translation."
- Authorized: Quick Read, Gracious, Informative, Persuasive. -- "While arguing for the necessity of translating into the vernacular of the people, this book lacks the balance of emphasizing the most important aspect of translation work and that is fidelity to the original text."
- Book Briefs: Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed Their Minds -- "The book at times is heady and scholarly to a fault. It also comes across as uneven."
- Book Review: Perfect Sinners, by Matt Fuller -- "The chapters aren’t too long or too heavy, and they refreshingly manage to cover a range of vital theological themes."
- Book Review: The Deacon, by Cornelis Van Dam -- "Van Dam has written a helpful book with many strengths."
- Book Review—The Whole Church Sings: Congregational Singing in Luther’s Wittenberg, by Robin Leaver -- "Why should present-day pastors and churches read this book and take Luther seriously? Simply this: in a day when biblical literacy among Christians is not impressive..."
- Book Review: Three Books by J. Oswald Sanders -- "To be honest, I expected very little from these books. I made assumptions about their relevance and biblical insights. But I’m glad to admit I was wrong."
- Review of NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible -- "Every article insert I read was good: well written, responsible, interesting. But the pages inside the covers of a Bible are just not the place for a bunch of articles on topical issues."
- Review of The Worship Pastor by Zac Hicks -- "...while Hicks correctly identifies the problem of dividing the pastorate from worship leadership, he does not present a substantive biblical case for why worship leadership is a pastoral role."
- The Battle for the Bible by Harold Lindsell -- "One of the central messages of the book is this: once the inerrancy of Scripture is compromised, where can we draw the line?"
- The Big Book of Bad Baptist Preachers -- "For years Jeri Massi has been cataloging the abusers and criminals who have plagued Baptist fundamentalism."
- The Oral Greek Character of Paul's Writings: a Review of the Book by John D. Harvey -- "Harvey concludes that every type of oral (rhetorical) patterning that was discovered in the Greek classics occurs in Paul's letters."
- The Read-Aloud Family by Sarah Mackenzie -- "...her new book covers deeper the why-to-read-aloud and the how-to-make-it-work."
- When Harry Became Sally – the ‘must read’ book of the decade! -- "It is well researched and written, with a great mixture of theory and practice. I was particularly moved by the personal testimonies of those who have been harmed by the current trans fad amongst the governing elites."
- Wiser Than Despair: The Evolution of Ideas in the Relationship Between Music and the Christian Church -- "This exploration is by means of excerpts from historical sources, quotations from modern authors, and commentary on both. It calls upon historical, philosophical, theological, liturgical, anthropological, and musical sources..."
