One Bible, Many Versions: Are All Translations Created Equal?One Bible, Many Versions: Are All Translations Created Equal? by Dave Brunn

I highly recommend this book.  It is very readable.  It attempts to minimize arguments and shows not the problems of particular translations but strengths of different types of translations and why it is irresponsible to not use the variety of translations available.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This review was posted in January, but still one of the most read reviews.

Summary: “The World is Not A Wish-Making Factory” (a frequently used line from the book that quite adequately sums up reality.)

The God of the Mundane

The God of the Mundane: Reflections on Ordinary Life by Matt Redmond 

Takeaway: God is the God of our every day mundane tasks and activities just as much (if not more so) than the mountaintop or special times.

I think I have referenced this book in conversations and other book reviews more than any other I have read recently.  This book is cheap, short, well written and has a very thoughtful message for modern Evangelical Christians.

The Fiddler’s Gun (Fin’s Revolution #1) by A.S. Peterson

I am very appriciative of the other contributors to Bookwi.se.  Seth Simmons, the author of this review has contributed twice as many reviews as any other reviewer to Bookwi.se beside myself.

And his reviews are being read.

The Fiddler’s Gun is a young adult historical fiction that I am planning on picking up this summer.

Who’s Tampering With the Trinity? An Assessment of the Subordination Debate by Millard EricksonWho’s Tampering With the Trinity? An Assessment of the Subordination Debate by Millard Erickson

What I appreciate about this book most is that it does a very good job showing how to properly evaluate different theological positions and write graciously.

I agreed with Erickson’s position before I started the book, but it is his style doing theology that I found most attractive.

Dad is Fat by Jim GaffiganDad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

Comic Jim Gaffigan talking about parenting is probably the perfect summer read for parents.
