Book Review: Finding the Will of God, by Bruce Waltke

Review by Greg Gilbert | 03.03.2010

Waltke’s book is useful, and it’s probably worth the price of purchase just for the section on divination and modern practices of “finding God’s will.”

Book Review: Is Jesus the Only Savior?, by James Edwards

Review by Will Kynes | 9Marks Journal: Marriage & Pastor's Wives | 03.03.2010

Book Review: Where Are All the Brothers?, by Eric Redmond

Once you have read it, give it away. Give it away because a biblical answer to one of these excuses may be the catalyst for calling a wayward sheep home.

Book(s) Review: The Radical Reformission & Confessions of a Reformission Rev, by Mark Driscoll
