- Review of A Piety above the Common Standard, by Tony Chute -- "Anthony Chute, who now teaches at California Baptist University, has given us a valuable window into the life and times of Jesse Mercer (1769–1841)."
- Book Review: Christian Marriage and Divorce – by Leslie S.B. Hyde -- "Concerning the vexed question of divorce, Mr. Hyde is exceedingly clear that this is not permissible under any circumstances."
- Book Review: God and the Transgender Debate -- "Thanks to God and the Transgender Debate, Christians now have gospel counsel on transgenderism in accessible terms for layman and pastor alike."
- Book Review: Practicing the Power, by Sam Storms -- "I’m glad Storms wrote this book because it makes very clear at least one view of how Reformed continuationists should practice the spiritual gifts in their local church. And yet, it’s these very suggestions that leave me with several significant concerns."
- Book Review: Walking with God through Pain and Suffering by Timothy Keller -- "Life is tragic. With that statement, Pastor/Author Tim Keller embarks on a study of evil and its ramifications..."
- Book Review: When Darkness Seems My Only Friend, by Mark Meynell -- "Meynell’s book is set apart from others in another particular way. Without forsaking biblical instruction, wise counsel, and clear thinking, Meynell offers freedom to shamelessly engage depression more than other books."
- Feature review: Work and Our Labor in the Lord -- "A helpful contribution to growing popular-level treatments of biblical theology, this volume provides practical instruction on work and demonstrates a strong hermeneutical method."
- On Pieper’s Leisure and Living Well -- "Pieper ends the book with a penetrating discussion of celebration, festivity, and worship. At first sight this will seem strange."
- One in Hope and Doctrine: Origins of Baptist Fundamentalism, 1870–1950, Review by Barry Hankins -- "First, Bauder and Delnay have brought to the fore acouple of historical actors who have been overlooked previously."
- Pope Denies God’s Essential Attributes in Latest Book -- "Francis...challenges God’s omniscience (by claiming he can be surprised), his omnipotence (by claiming he “dreams”), his immutability (by claiming he changes), and his eternal nature (by claiming he is young)."
- What Paul’s Prayers Teach Us about Early Christian Worship -- "In Honoring the Son, Larry W. Hurtado investigates the devotional practices of the early church and what they tell us about the place of Jesus in early Christian worship."
