The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

On 11/18 Logan Stewart wrote: I'm not sure if you've noticed, but oftentimes, the bible can come across as stuffy.  Especially if you're reading an older translation.  Conversely, there are many translations that are paraphrases, and while these are beneficial at times, they are also problematic, too.  The Voice is ...

A renown apologist, McDowell, along with Bob Hostetler, produced a ... Don't Check Your Brains at the Door, a Review

The Gospel According to Jesus

The Gospel According to Jesus

On 11/8 Logan Stewart wrote: The Gospel According to Jesus, by Chris Seay, is a very thought-provoking book. It's a slim read, barely 200 pages, but it packs a lot in its easy-to-read prose. The premise of the book is that Seay is concerned with how American Christians fail to understand key terms to the faith, like "righteousness" ... The Gospel According to Jesus, a Review

Green

Green

On 2/5 Logan Stewart wrote: Green is a prequel and/or a sequel to Ted Dekker's The Circle series. To me, I can't consider it a prequel, as there is too much extra information that would have me feeling lost without having first read the other books. That said, I have read Black, Red, White, Showdown, Chosen, and Infidel, and I ... Green, A Review (May Contain Spoilers)
