The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness by Kevin DeYoung

The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness by Kevin DeYoung - $0.99

162 pages, 115 of 119 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Lending Enabled

The hole in our holiness is that we don’t care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don’t understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you’ve been trying really hard to be holy and it’s just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don’t seem all that concerned about it.

This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God’s power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of transformation.

Worship through the Ages: How the Great Awakenings Shape Evangelical Worship by Elmer Towns and Vernon Whaley - $0.99

416 pages, 4 of 4 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Lending Enabled

Through the Ages provides a practical, historical and philosophical study of the Great Spiritual Awakenings as related to the worship of evangelicals around the globe. This is a fascinating story that reveals a unifying, unbroken thread of events whereby one can trace the development of worship practices through the ages. With each move of God came a change in the way people worshiped. New paradigms were created, debated, accepted and passed on to the next generation. Narrative for this study is energized by telling “the story” of engaging personalities, influencers and movers and shakers. Emphasis is given to changes in worship practices from the Early Church, Reformation, the Great Awakenings, revival movements, large evangelistic crusades of the 1940s and 1950s, Jesus Movement, and the Praise and Worship movement. A chart tracing the development of worship from Genesis 4 to the twenty-first century is included.

Did Jesus Rise From the Dead? by William Lane Craig

Did Jesus Rise From the Dead? by William Lane Craig

89 pages, no reviews, Lending Enabled

DID JESUS RISE FROM THE DEAD? OR IS IT THE HOAX OF THE AGES? 

Seems reasonable . . . perhaps Jesus was comatose. Or perhaps his body was stolen. Or maybe the women arrived at the wrong tomb . . . they were grieving, after all; it would have been an honest mistake. There are any number of explanations. 

Dr. William Lane Craig uses well-documented historical facts to explore the evidence that surrounds the days following Jesus’ crucifixion. Without assuming “the Bible says so,” Did Jesus Rise from the Dead? presents positive religious, cultural, and historical evidence for the reality of the resurrection while breaking down the six most common hypotheses used to explain the unusual events that unfolded from the moment Christ breathed his last. 

Thoroughly researched, yet deftly digestible, Did Jesus Rise from the Dead? belongs in the library of any apologist, skeptic, or seeker.

CS Lewis: A Life Inspired by Christopher Gordon

CS Lewis: A Life Inspired by Christopher Gordon

132 pages, 30 of 30 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Lending Enabled

A man of reason and vigorous discourse, and a renowned professor of literature and philosophy, C.S. Lewis, always “Jack” to family and friends, never shied from intellectual debate, and through his written works encouraged others to wrestle with the difficult questions of faith. 

A master of visual illustration and allegory, Lewis wrote with the intuitive understanding that his readers wrestled with the same questions about the Christian story, about pain, suffering, and notions of Heaven and Hell, as he himself had wrestled. He also understood that others found reason and imagination to be incompatible aspects of an understanding of God and the universe.

Hell is Real (But I Hate to Admit it) by Brian Jones

Hell is Real (But I Hate to Admit it) by Brian Jones

272 pages, 36 of 45 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Audiobook is discounted to $2.99 with purchase of Kindle Book 

Does hell matter? Pastor Brian Jones wants readers to know the truth.

Jones believes that the reason most Christians don’t tell their friends about Jesus has nothing to do with not knowing how—it’s because they don’t think they need to. As Jones writes, the first four years he was a pastor, he didn’t believe in hell himself. Today, he shares his story of discovering the truth that hell exists—and why many Christians are afraid to believe in it.

Hell Is Real motivates Christians who have grown complacent in their view of hell. Drawing on the teachings of Jesus, Jones leads readers into a head-on collision with apocalyptic urgency—the all-consuming, inspiring conviction that will overcome readers when they realize that hell is real and they can help save people from going there.

Mark: The Gospel of Passion by Michael Card

Mark: The Gospel of Passion by Michael CardSummary: A good devotional commentary on Mark.

Over the past couple of months the small group that I participate in has been using Mark: The Gospel of Passion for our small group discussion.  I suggested the book and thankfully it has gone over fairly well.

Michael Card is fairly well known as a musician but he is also has a good background in academic study of scripture.  Card is writing commentaries on the Gospels (and releasing an album of music to go along with each book).

I read Card’s earlier commentary on Luke and this feels a bit different.  My memory of Card’s book on Luke was that Card very intentionally tried to bring out an artist’s perspective on the gospel.  Mark does not seem to have quite the same feel.  The commentary, while still good and useful and more devotional in feel than a standard commentary seems more straight forward and less imaginative than my memory of the Luke commentary.

As a small group discussion starter it worked surprisingly well.  We originally started with the intention of reading through in 4 or maybe 5 weeks. But there was just too much that the group wanted to talk about and so the reading extended to seven weeks.  There are not any discussion questions, but that did not seem to be a problem.  Each chapter of the book is based on a chapter from the Gospel.  Each chapter is divided into thematic sections with a section of scripture followed by commentary from Card.

Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ by Warren Wiersbe

Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ - $0.01

208 pages, 48 of 54 reviews are 4 or 5-star, Audiobook is discounted to $2.99 with purchase of Kindle Book 

In Jesus in the Present Tense, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe explores the “I AM” statements of God—from His burning bush conversation with Moses, to His powerful reassurances to the Israelites, to Jesus’s startling claim to be the Light of the World.

Many Christians find themselves mired in past regrets or future fears, but the name of God itself reminds readers that God wants them to live in the present. The more readers understand and apply God’s I AM statements from the Old and New Testaments, the more they will realize God’s peace and joy. Then they will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense—which is just where He wants them to be.

Why is God letting this happen to me?

If you have never asked this question, you someday will.

There is perhaps no greater challenge to our faith than personal suffering. For pastor Ed Underwood this challenge came in the form of chronic leukemia. Though he prayed for and believed in God’s healing, as the days slipped by and his pain became unbearable, Ed’s heart was broken by a simple realization: The God who could do anything was not helping him. Yet a revelation from God’s Word changed his heart and life forever.

Angels and Saints: A Biblical Guide to Friendship with God’s Holy Ones by Scott Hahn

Angels and Saints: A Biblical Guide to Friendship with God's Holy Ones by Scott HahnSummary: Brief introduction to the Catholic perspective on Saints (with a little bit about Angels).

Over the past couple years I have tried to read a book a month that is intentionally outside of my tradition to expand my understanding of Christianity and to better understand the perspectives of other traditions.

Scott Hahn has been the author of several of the books I have read about Catholicism.  I picked this book up from NetGalley to review and misremembered the publication date.  So it will not be out for another six weeks yet.

This is a very brief book, I read almost all of it in about 2 hours.  The first couple chapters are a brief explanation of the role of saints in Catholic theology.  This is an expansion of a similar explanation in Hahn’s Signs of Life: 40 Catholic Customs and their Biblical Origins.  But I actually think that original shorter explanation was better.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash a Revolution in Your Life In Christ by Peter Scazzero

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash a Revolution in Your Life In Christ by Peter Scazzero - $1.99

227 pages, 172 of 189 reviews are 4 or 5-star

What Are You Missing?

Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though he was pastor of a growing church, he did what most people do:

  • Avoid conflict in the name of Christianity
  • Ignore his anger, sadness, and fear
  • Use God to run from God
  • Live without boundaries

Eventually God awakened him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a relationship with Jesus, and the classic practices of contemplative spirituality. It created nothing short of a spiritual revolution, utterly transforming him and his church.

In this book Scazzero outlines his journey and the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. Then he provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you.

How are American identity and America’s presence in the world shaped by war, and what does God have to do with it? Esteemed theologian Stanley Hauerwas helps readers reflect theologically on war, church, justice, and nonviolence in this compelling volume, exploring issues such as how America depends on war for its identity, how war affects the soul of a nation, the sacrifices that war entails, and why war is considered “necessary,” especially in America. He also examines the views of nonviolence held by Martin Luther King Jr. and C. S. Lewis, how Jesus constitutes the justice of God, and the relationship between congregational ministry and Christian formation in America.

Is it possible that we have left Christ out of Christianity? Is the faith and practice of American Christians today more American than Christian? These are the provocative questions Michael Horton addresses in this thoughtful, insightful book. He argues that while we invoke the name of Christ, too often Christ and the Christ-centered gospel are pushed aside. The result is a message and a faith that are, in Horton’s words, “trivial, sentimental, affirming, and irrelevant.”
