Book Review of: The Power of Integrity

It’s been a while since I picked up a book by John MacArthur, and I am glad I picked up this one. ‘The Power of Integrity’ is a short book, some 158 pages of reading, it is devotional in tone, light in reading, convicting in quality and encouraging in nature. What I love about MacArthur’s…

Book Review: Histories and Fallacies

Histories and Fallacies is one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time, partly due to the topic, which is not really one relating directly to my task as a Pastor and Theologian, so it was really outside my normal milieu of reading. Histories and Fallacies is a book about the…

Bunyan spent time in prison for refusing to preach; he wrote extensively and fought in the English civil war. ‘Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners’ is Bunyan’s auto-biography, he tells of how…

A Conservative Critique of Rob Bell’s ‘Velvet Elvis’

I would prefer someone to read the ‘book of shadows’ (Wiccan Bible) or the ‘Koran’ or listen to a Marylin Manson cd then read this book. Why? Well, at least those others let you know that they are bad, at least you know what you are in for, but this book, is so shneaky, so deceitful, it is way more evil (please don’t let that comment put you off from reading further).
