- Anne Bradley Reflects on New Zondervan Edition of ‘For the Least of These’ -- "We don’t get to choose the “how” in how we care for the poor. We have to do it the right way, because lives hang in the balance."
- Book Review: Getting Off the Niceness Treadmill by Carol Noren Johnson -- "True Godliness is not always “nice”, and there are many things that Christians should not be nice about."
- Book Review of Suffering: Gospel Hope When Life Doesn’t Make Sense by Paul David Tripp -- "Suffering is Paul David Tripp at his best—a gorgeous hope-filled product of the hardest trials of his life."
- Book Review: Mere Apologetics by Alister E. McGrath -- "The purpose for writing Mere Apologetics is to introduce readers to the defense of the Christian faith and does a great job of detailing some of the more well-known apologetic arguments, like the fine-tuning of the universe and objective morality."
- Book Review: Samuel Waldron, Baptist Roots in America -- "Waldron...wrote this booklet to provide a historical context for the rise of Reformed Baptist Churches in America in the last thirty to forty years."

- The Crooked Cave Caper! And Other Exciting Stories -- "Some people might feel that the author is overly “preachy” in his writing. I for one didn’t mind this emphasis and enjoyed reading the stories, but it is certainly true that there is no effort to hide or even tone down the religious underpinnings of the plot."
- The Great Mystery by Alister McGrath -- "McGrath points out a conundrum facing secular humanists but which is ignored by most of them, including the ‘New Atheists’."
- The Landmark Edition of the New Testament (KJV Study Bible) -- "A wonderful edition of the English New Testament. It has introductions and outlines on all the New Testament books with footnote commentary on special verses by several contemporary Landmark Baptist preachers."
