Hello everyone. We had every intention to complete the following book reviews before the end of the year but it looks like some of them will be pushed back into early 2007. Below you can see the list of reviews in the order we hope to get to them. (We will begin releasing Christmas book lists next week.)
Also, by this time in the year, the major publishers have released all their top books. And so we are ready to announce our first ever “The Shepherd’s Scrapbook, Book of the Year” award. We will do that tomorrow.
1. Savior, Sovereign Grace Christmas CD.
2. John Gill’s complete commentary on the bible (9 vols from Vision Forum).
3. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together (Augsburg Press).
4. Francis Turretin, Institutes of Elenctic Theology (3 vols from P&R).
5. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Life in Christ: Studies in 1 John (Crossway).
6. Richard A. Muller, Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics: The Rise and Development of Reformed Orthodoxy, ca. 1520 to ca. 1725 (4 vols from Baker).
7. C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces (Harcourt).
8. Works of Edward Reynolds (4 of 6 vols from Soli Deo Gloria).
9. Works of John Owen (first 9 volumes from Banner of Truth).
10. Jonathan Edwards, A Just and Righteous God (Soli Deo Gloria).
See you tomorrow.

Why didn’t anyone bring up the fact that U2’s lead singer Bono had his picture up on the wall for the ‘Risks’ series also? I personally approached Mark about this unbeliever, but he wasn’t concerned. MTV at one point refused to air a new U2 video, claiming it was too sexual in content. If you Google Bono or the band Oasis, you can find a picture of Bono french-kissing another man onstage, unashamed. And the list goes on. This was all brought to the attention of the leadership of CCC, to no avail. I left the church, a decision I don’t take lightly. I’ve had 5 years of biblical theology from an Alliance college, read Tozer & others & have a deep love for the denomination. Simpson would cry if he could see the state of things today. Personal sanctification isn’t even talked about anymore…
Hey Sid, no surprises. When you’re willing to compromise on the gospel there is are no other compromises that will shock me. Very sad. The local denomination needs a Simpson — one who leads with biblical convictions not the newest title from Zondervan. It’s a very sad situation that brings me great grief. Thanks for stopping in. -Tony
That would be A.B. Simpson, the founder of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. We are talking about a situation that arose in one of the denomination’s largest churches (read here). Blessings, friend. Tony
