Book Review: Orthodox Radicals, by Matthew Bingham

Review by Bobby Jamieson | 08.29.2019

It is logically easier to be baptistic without being congregational than to be congregational without being baptistic. Yet the two convictions fit together snugly. Maybe our earliest English ecclesiological ancestors were on to something.

Book Review: Grace Defined and Defended

Book Review: Unreconciled

Review by Jeremy Meeks | 07.18.2019

Book Review: Evangelism as Exiles

Review by Caleb Greggsen | 07.11.2019

Elliot Clark’s book is a gift to Christians tempted to feel discouraged by their increased sense of alienation in America. More than that, it is a clarion call to confidently declare the gospel in a world that desperately needs it.

Book Review: Preaching as Reminding, by Jeffrey D. Arthurs

Review by Juan Sanchez | 05.23.2019
