By Anonymous | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 02.25.2010

For that reason, even before asking whether your family should stay or go, it may be worth asking whether or not you have a Kingdom perspective at all.

Book Reviews

Book Review: Practicing Hospitality, by Pat Ennis and Lisa Tatlock

Review by Adrienne Lawrence | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.03.2010

This book will help those who are unfamiliar with the biblical idea of hospitality and provide a useful introduction to the concept.

Book Review: Family Driven Faith, by Voddie Baucham

Review by Michael Lawrence | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 04.02.2010

Baucham has done a service to the church by calling us back from a wrong-headed trust in programs and professionals.

Book Review: Gracism: The Art of Inclusion, by David A. Anderson

Review by Ken Jones | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.02.2010

The term “gracism” sounds a great deal like affirmative action with a biblical twist. I think the tried and proven biblical standard and terms are sufficient for the task.

Book Review: Multicultural Ministry, by David A. Anderson

Review by Juan Sanchez | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.02.2010

As a result of reading Multicultural Ministry, I will pray more, read more Scripture, and consider ways in which I can be a more deliberate reconciler.

Book Review: Building a Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church, by Mark DeYmaz

Review by Benjamin Wright | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.02.2010

This book is a worthwhile read. But absorb its biblical-theological argumentation with a discerning eye.

Book Review: Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament, by Christopher Wright

Review by Paul Alexander | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.03.2010

It’s not difficult to see why this book has stayed in print for so long.

Book Review: The Peacemaking Pastor, by Alfred Poirier

Review by Bob Johnson | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.02.2010

More than once while reading, I had to put the book down, confess my sin, and pick up the phone to get involved again in a situation I was conveniently ignoring.

Book Review: 40 Questions About Elders and Deacons, by Ben Merkle

Review by Will Kynes | 9Marks Journal: Family & Parenting | 03.03.2010
