NIV Essentials Study Bible

NIV Essentials Study Bible

On 8/25 DanielofAZ wrote: How could a Bible ever deserve less than a 5-star rating? When too many of man's words are mixed in with it. Zondervan's NIV Essentials Study Bible is not a bad Bible -- there is much to commend about it and certainly you could find worse Bibles. However, there are so many other better study Bibles ...

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus

On 4/21 DanielofAZ wrote: I have read and reviewed a lot of books on Islam. But Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is the best of them. It contains the strengths of the other books without their weaknesses. It explains what Muslims believe (clearly, accurately, and without ad hominems). It explains how Muslims live (most of them ... Best Book I've Read on Islam

The Jesus Bible, NIV

The Jesus Bible, NIV

On 3/5 DanielofAZ wrote: Certainly I can't criticize the Book itself (!), or even the main concept behind this particular one (showing how each section of the Bible points to Jesus, in simple language that children can understand). Each book of the Bible has a helpful introduction, and there are daily devotionals sprinkled throughout ... Making God Groovy

Strange Fire

Strange Fire

On 1/23 DanielofAZ wrote: So while I believe that MacArthur goes too far in trying to make the Bible teach cessationism, I appreciate what he's done in questioning the character of contemporary charismatic churches. When MacArthur and I look at the Bible's teaching about the continuance of miraculous gifts, we disagree. But when ... A Push in the Right Direction

Jesus on Every Page

On 11/7 DanielofAZ wrote: I've received a fair number of books for free in exchange for an unbiased review. Most of them were interesting. But this one is compelling. I could recommend you buy most of the others I read. But this one, I might actually buy myself a few more copies to give to friends. Pastor and professor David ...

Joni and Ken

Joni and Ken

On 5/13 DanielofAZ wrote: Most "love stories" in print are actually "lust stories". Not Joni and Ken. Quadriplegic since age 17, Joni Tada is famous around the world as an author, singer, painter, speaker, radio and TV host, and advocate for the handicapped. She holds six honorary doctorates. Her husband Ken is famous as... ... Joni and Ken: An Untold Love Story

God's Book of Prayers

God's Book of Prayers

On 1/18 DanielofAZ wrote: God's Book of Prayers is founded on a simple, often overlooked idea: the Bible makes the best source for prayers! It seems obvious, doesn't it? When we talk with God, it's far better to start with His own words than coming up with stuff from scratch. So I love this author's idea: printing all of ... Great Concept, Eccentric Delivery

The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

On 10/13 DanielofAZ wrote: John MacArthur is perhaps best known for his stand on what has become known as "Lordship salvation". His book The Gospel According to Jesus was a seminal challenge to the antinomian leanings of Charles Ryrie, Zane Hodges and Dallas Theological Seminary in the 1980s. So what's he doing publishing a new ... Needs more organization; but solid introduction to vital topic

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

On 9/4 DanielofAZ wrote: John MacArthur is no stranger to controversy. His interviews on Larry King Live and other programs were not marked by soft words. His books The Gospel According to Jesus and Charismatic Chaos had polarizing effects, to say the least. And yet, in his latest book Twelve Unlikely Heroes we see his gentler ...

Father Hunger

Father Hunger

On 8/15 DanielofAZ wrote: When I first decided to review Douglas Wilson's new book, Father Hunger, I was afraid it might turn out to be a book trying to get me to unearth some hidden feelings of emotional deprivation caused by failures of my father. It actually turned out be a delightful read, something that perhaps would have ... Warm, Witty, Lucid, Biblical, Thought-Provoking

Miraculous Movements

Miraculous Movements

On 7/28 DanielofAZ wrote: The bulk of the book is carefully reported stories of rapid multiplication of churches (mostly underground) throughout Islamic Africa. The author attempts to analyze the reasons for this surprising expansion of Christianity and find a pattern that other Christians can follow. The weakness of the book ...
