Reviews of two exciting new releases that you will want to check out!
Tim Challies recommends How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens.
"Michael Williams’ How to Read the Bible Through the Jesus Lens is a helpful guide to a Christ-focused reading of the Bible… This is an ideal resource to refer to if you are involved in a Bible-reading plan or if you would just like to gain a deeper understanding of the Scriptures. As you begin reading a new book of the Bible, you will find it helpful to turn to How to Read the Bible Through the Jesus Lens to get an overview of that book and to train yourself to read it through the Jesus lens. It will sharpen your understanding of what you have read (or are about to read) and help ensure that you do not miss Jesus amidst the stories and genealogies and all the other things that sometimes threaten to cloud our view."
And Trevin Wax engages with Journeys of Faith.
"Plummer expresses three goals he hopes this book will accomplish: 1. To help Evangelicals understand why persons are leaving their churches for Christian traditions that are more liturgical. 2. To help Evangelical leaders in responding to questions from church members who are attracted to liturgical Christian traditions. 3. To help non-Evangelicals, such as Catholic and Orthodox Christians, in understanding why persons have departed their traditions for Evangelicalism, why some Evangelicals are now moving in the other direction, and what fundamental differences remain between Evangelical and non-Evangelical communities... Journeys of Faith is a captivating book. It accomplishes Plummer’s three goals and does not minimize the differences between the contributors… The result is an enlightening read that will prompt good conversations among evangelical church leaders."
