Reviews by Snyder's Soapbox
On 6/17 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: This Bible is ok. It could have been much better. The notes and aids were somewhat helpful for a general knowledge. I would recommend the Holman NKJV Study Bible for better notes. My personal favorite is the MacArthur Study Bible. If you can afford the ESV in Calfskin, that is the best made one ... A Review of the Thomas Nelson NKJV Study Bible, Personal Size, Paperback.
On 5/10 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: The typical commentary notes you’d expect from a study Bible are missing. Instead there are features, or small articles interspersed throughout the Bible. Many of these are not Reformed, or complementarian friendly. They also seem to employ a cultural hermeneutic to many scripture passages instead ... Review of the NKJV Chronological Study Bible.
On 4/17 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: The full title of the book is, Answering Jihad A Better Way Forward. The majority of the book is a concise primer on Islam, and some of its doctrines. It also briefly juxtaposes some facets of Islam with corresponding aspects Christianity. The big question, in my summation that it answered definitively ... A Review of, “Answering Jihad” by Nabeel Qureshi
On 2/18 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: Dr. Mohler takes you step by step, setting the scene with historical information, about how the foundation for this revolution was put in place, so that in the right environment of postmodernism it could explode. follow along step by step, to see how the plan of the enemy has been unfolding for decades. ... Dr. R. Albert Mohler’s new book, “We Cannot Be Silent.” is a must read for Christians trying to make sense of all the gender chaos going on around us.
On 10/1 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: The Bible was shipped to me free in return for an honest review. It arrived undamaged and in generally good condition except a bent corner. It is a hardcover with a dustjacket. It is case bound, and smyth-sewn. It is produced in China and does not seem to suffer major quality problems that you might ... A Review of the NKJV Foundation Study Bible, in Hardcover
On 6/26 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: What can I say? I think the Robertson family is funny. I can’t help liking them. When I saw this book come up for review, I decided to read it, considering how much garbage is put out by Harper Collins. Harper Collins owns Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, and Westbow. Seriously, most of the books coming out ... A Review of, “The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God, What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness.”
On 5/28 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: After reading the book all I can gather is that her reason why millennials are leaving the Church is that we are too concerned about God’s word and adhering to it rather than tossing it out and having a big gay love fest. She is insane. The non-stop feminist agenda is sickening. She is a basher ... Rachel Held Evans, “Searching for Sunday” is Liberal, Emergent Church, Ecumenical, Drivel at Best.
On 4/2 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: The NIV Proclamation Bible, A Reference Bible. On the front of the dust jacket of this Bible, the testimonial from Tim Keller is featured, “There are many Study Bibles, but none better.” This is very misleading. I have no idea why this quote is featured. I would hope that there is some good reason ... Not a Study Bible, Rather an NIV Reference Bible.
On 3/6 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: As I start my review, I confess, I knew very little of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I knew he was considered a hero of the faith, for which he died under the cruelty of Hitler. That was the extent of my knowledge. This book is short. It doesn’t contain too much information. I didn’t feel inundated by history. ... A Review of Eric Metaxas’ “Bonhoeffer Abridged, Pastor, Prophet, Martyr, Spy.”
On 11/6 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: First Im going to address the physical attributes of this Bible and its features with minimal critiques and then I will flesh out my opinions of the essays and notes included in this Bible. Keep in mind that part of the review is highly subjective depending on your theological position. The Bible ... You want it both ways? So does Thomas Nelson. My Review of the Thomas Nelson Full Color Hardcover 2nd Edition Study Bible.
On 9/26 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: In the first part of every chapter Rutherford adds fictional dialogue to the historical narrative of Joshua 6:1-20. I can't begin to tell you how much I dislike this when people do it. It seems so presumptive. Many people won't have a problem with this. It is just a personal preference with me. I understand ... Review of the book, "Walls Fall Down" authored by Dudley Rutherford
On 8/21 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: The Jesus Code is basically a devotional set up in 52 chapters. The reader is supposed to read and study one per week. It is a Question and Answer format. Hawkins takes a section of scripture and then expounds on it and its application. It isn’t an in depth look at systematic theology, it is a ... Review of, “The Jesus Code” Weekly Devotional
On 7/15 Snyder's Soapbox wrote: To answer the question, no this book isn’t really about picking up strippers. It is about a Pastor (Todd Stevens) and his Church’s efforts to perform outreach ministry to all the people in his area no matter who they are with no strings attached. He focuses on what we might commonly refer to as ... This Book isn’t really about, “How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness” is it?
