Book Review: When People Are Big and God is Small, by Ed Welch

Review by Greg Gilbert | 08.02.2002

This book would be useful to any pastor who is willing to have numerous and extended conversations with his people.

Book Review: Hearing God, by Dallas Willard

Review by Greg Gilbert | 07.02.2002

I think there are probably better, more biblically careful books that hold at least some portion of what Willard is arguing.

Book Review: Worship by the Book, by D. A. Carson

Review by Greg Gilbert | 04.02.2002

Worship by the Book will be a dog-eared and threadbare favorite of any pastor serious about planning his church’s corporate gatherings with deep theological and biblical roots.

Worship with Bob Kauflin and Ligon Duncan

By B. Kauflin, L. Duncan, M. Dever | 03.15.2002

Despite the importance of worship, many churches today don’t know where to begin in defining its purpose and essential elements. Panelists J. Ligon Duncan, Bob Kauflin, and Carl Stam discuss the Bible’s teaching on God-pleasing worship, addressing everything from service times to music styles.

Book Review: Revolution, by George Barna

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.05.2002

If Barna had ever been a part of a healthy, vibrant local church, perhaps he wouldn’t find it so easy to declare the local church expendable.

Book Review: The Younger Evangelicals, by Robert Webber

Review by Greg Gilbert | 12.02.2001

If younger evangelicals intend to build biblical—and not just postmodern—churches, they must center them on the Word of God.

Book Review: Rethinking the Successful Church, by Samuel Rima

Review by Greg Gilbert | 11.11.2001

There are questions about the very methods of the church growth movement that Rima does not address.

Book Review: Doing Church as a Team, by Wayne Cordeiro

Review by Greg Gilbert | 10.05.2001

Cordeiro’s emphasis on every-member ministry has led him to neglect and somewhat relegate the importance of the preaching of the Word.

Book Review: Led By the Spirit, by Jim Elliff

Review by Greg Gilbert | 10.05.2001

Jim Elliff’s book is an extremely well-written and well-argued study of how the Holy Spirit guides the believer.

Book Review: Paul’s Idea of Community, by Robert Banks

Review by Greg Gilbert | 10.02.2001

In the final analysis, Banks’s book is fatally flawed by its refusal to learn and teach from the entire Bible.

Book Review: The Connecting Church, by Randy Frazee

Review by Greg Gilbert | 08.05.2001

I am happy to see that Frazee has identified a problem that exists in a large part of the Christian church today. My only contention is with the solution that Frazee proposes.

Book Review: The Christian’s Guide to Guidance, by Jay Adams

Review by Greg Gilbert | 06.05.2001

Adams’s goal is to take the question of guidance, or of God’s will, and boil it down to a very simple proposition: God’s will is revealed to us solely through the Bible.

Book Review: Experiencing God, by Henry Blackaby

Review by Greg Gilbert | 05.22.2001

Much of Blackaby’s book, then, I think could be helpful to growing Christians.
