The Seven Laws of Love

The Seven Laws of Love

On 7/9 Steve Cha wrote: The Seven Laws of Love is a practical and easy to read book on the practice of love. It is not theologically dense, but it is also not fluff, as most of the material is supported by biblical verses and passages. The definition of love is accurate, as the author constantly describes it as a selfless, ... A practical and helpful book

Four Views on Hell

Four Views on Hell

On 4/1 Steve Cha wrote: Counterpoints Bible & Theology continue in the series with the subject of hell, which is another cardinal doctrine that has split views. This book documents all four of them: eternal punishment, annihilationism, restorationism, and purgatory. The last category belongs mainly in the Roman Catholic church, ... Pretty much sums it up

Man, Myth, Messiah

Man, Myth, Messiah

On 3/11 Steve Cha wrote: Man Myth Messiah is Rice Broock’s latest apologetics follow-up to his stellar book God’s Note Dead. Whereas God’s Not Dead was a broad argument for the truth of the Christian faith (ex. God’s existence, moral absolutes, the Bible’s veracity), Man Myth Messiah narrows the focus on the question: ... A compelling argument for the Jesus of the Bible

We Cannot Be Silent

On 12/29 Steve Cha wrote: An evangelical known for his outspokenness in defense of the Christian faith, Albert Mohler tackles yet another important and controversial topic in the book We Cannot Remain Silent.

It's Not What You Think

It's Not What You Think

On 10/25 Steve Cha wrote: Jefferson’s Bethke’s new book, It’s Not What You Think, tackles the subject of Christian living in a unique way. The whole premise of the book is that Christianity is not just about a ticket to the afterlife, but that it has significant relevant and ramification for the present life. That is why ... Not as sharp as his last, but still okay

Sacred Marriage

Sacred Marriage

On 10/3 Steve Cha wrote: Sacred Marriage is one of Gary Thomas’ most popular book. It is also a tremendously helpful one. It is not a book that gives practical tips on how to better a marriage. Rather, it is a book that describes what marriage should be built on and what should result: Holiness. When a marriage produces holiness ... Principles that Can Change Marriages

The Happy Christian

The Happy Christian

On 2/24 Steve Cha wrote: David Murray’s new book, The Happy Christian, is an uplifting, yet biblical, exploration of the joyful Christian. Contrary to appearance, it is not a prosperity book or even a Christian self-help book with loose connections to the biblical theology. It is actually a Bible-based, theological book on ... A Surprising Winner

Jesus, Continued…

Jesus, Continued…

On 11/27 Steve Cha wrote: The Holy Spirit’s ministry is ever present, but at most times misunderstood, unfelt, and sometimes ignored. Is having the Spirit inside you better than having Jesus beside you? This is the discussion of J.D. Greear’s new book, Jesus, Continued, which is a Christian living book that deals with this ... A clear, practical and concise book on the Holy Spirit

Vanishing Grace

Vanishing Grace

On 11/22 Steve Cha wrote: Philip Yancey’s new book, Vanishing Grace, answers the question, “How can Christians present truly Good News amid the changing landscapes of our time?” It is in response to the issue of why the reputation of Christians how been going so bad over the years. Yancey issues a call for Christians to ... Well intentioned, but ultimately misses the meaning of grace

The Skeletons in God's Closet

The Skeletons in God's Closet

On 10/15 Steve Cha wrote: he new book by Joshua Butler, The Skeletons in God’s Closet, is meant to be a sort of apologetics book answering the difficult questions that are posed by skeptics, and even believers, of the Christian faith.

Walls Fall Down

Walls Fall Down

On 9/24 Steve Cha wrote: Dudley Rutherford’s second book, Walls Fall Down, is an inspiration and biblical account on what lessons we can learn from the incident of the Walls of Jericho (Joshua 6), and how that applies to our lives.

What's Best Next

What's Best Next

On 8/20 Steve Cha wrote: What’s Best Next is a new book by Matt Perman that explores the topic of the gospel and productivity. It does not necessarily speak about excelling in the work place, but in any areas of service to others and working for the glory of God. It is first and foremost centered on the gospel. Without this ... A workplace theology that makes sense
