Book Review: Evangelicalism Divided, by Iain Murray

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

Murray’s charge is that Christian leaders in the latter half of the 1900’sforgot that the most important question the church must ask is “What is a Christian?”

Book Review: Where Do We Go From Here?, by Ralph Neighbour

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

The structure of cell churches the author proposes seems to me to surrender far too much of what it means to be a church.

Book Review: Every People and Nation: A Biblical Theology of Race

Review by Tony Carter | 9Marks Journal: Race and Ethnicity | 03.03.2010

This book is a fine and needed supplement to the many systematic and biblical theology books we already have on our shelves.

Book Review: Finding God’s Will, by J. I. Packer

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

J. I. Packer’s Finding God’s Will is a very useful and characteristically careful study of guidance in the New Testament.

Book Review: God’s Will and the Christian, by R. C. Sproul

This is a very useful book, especially for the theologically astute seeker of God’s will.

Book Review: On Being Black and Reformed, by Anthony Carter

Review by Reverend Rickey Armstrong | 9Marks Journal: Race and Ethnicity | 03.03.2010

This an excellent introduction to the African-American experience from the perspective of redemptive history.

Book Review: In Search of Authentic Faith, by Steve Rabey

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

The book is, for the most part, an unquestioning, uncritical, and naively approving tribute to anything that could pass as “creative.”

Book Review: Reconciliation Blues, by Edward Gilbreath

Review by Eric C. Redmond | 9Marks Journal: Race and Ethnicity | 03.03.2010

Gilbreath portrays what life is like for evangelical ethnic minorities who are attempting to live within white evangelical culture while maintaining their cultural identity.

Book Review: Reforming Pastoral Ministry, ed. by John Armstrong

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

John Armstrong has compiled a book called Reforming Pastoral Ministry that is a well-placed and much-needed dart in the balloon of the church growth movement.

Book Review: The Church Beyond the Congregation, by James Thwaites

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

James Thwaites is a sobering example of what can happen when we allow a philosophy or idea to gain ascendancy in our minds, and only then ask the Scriptures to agree with us.

The Faithful Preacher

Review by Ken Jones | 9Marks Journal: Race and Ethnicity | 03.03.2010

The Faithful Preacher is indeed an important, insightful, and invigorating work that should benefit all who read it—whether Black or White, clergy or laity.

Book Review: The Gathered and Scattered Church, by Edward Hammett

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

Jesus never made social problems or social action His overriding concern. Hammett needs either to understand that, or at least to write it, more clearly.

Book Review: The Jesus I Never Knew, by Philip Yancey

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

This is indeed a day when novel ideas about Jesus are frequent and fashionable, but far from correcting those errors, this book only serves to make them even more acute.

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

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

Merkle reminds us that the Bible has a great deal to say about how we do church.
