Last fall I had the opportunity to attend a Simeon Trust Workshop on Biblical Exposition in Youngstown, Ohio. At the workshop we were all given a copy of a book by H.B. Charles Jr., simply called On Preaching. I heard H.B. speak at the 2017 TGC national conference, and he recently preached at T4G, so […]Read More On Preaching – by H.B. Charles Jr.
I came across this quote in John Piper’s book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals, which I found to be very thought provoking: “I [do not] want to give the impression that I think there is virtue in reading many books. In fact one of my greatest complaints in seminary was that professors trained students in […]Read More Reading less could be reading more
Paul Miller has written a great book on this most important of subjects.

In fact, Calvin […]Read More Book Review – The Expository Genius of John Calvin

With tens of thousands of books published every year, why are there not more on trusting God? After all, isn’t that what the Christian life is all […]Read More Book Review: Trusting God by Jerry Bridges
The holiness of God was the theme for the 2009 Ligonier National conference, of which I was privileged to attend. The conference was truly outstanding and so when I learned that Reformation Trust had put the conference into book form, I was thrilled. What surprised me as I read through this book was my pace. […]Read More Book Review – Holy, Holy, Holy: Proclaiming the Perfections of God
I just finished Jerry Bridges book “Transforming Grace” and I was not disappointed. Bridges is an accomplished Christian writer and his books have blessed the Christian world for decades. Knowing this and having read his book “The Practice of Godliness” and skimmed his bestseller “The Pursuit of Holiness,” I had a good idea of what […]Read More Book Review:Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges

I just finished reading A W Tozer’s classic work, The Knowledge of the Holy. This was the second time I’ve read through this book, but this time, I took it a lot slower and was all the more blessed in doing so. In the book, Tozer is pleading with the reader to know God and […]Read More The Knowledge of the Holy – by A.W. Tozer
