Book Review: “Lewis on the Christian Life” by Joe Rigney

Lewis on the Christian Life is another installment in the “Theologians on the Christian Life” series from Crossway. This time, the subject is the extremely popular Christian thinker, C.S. Lewis. It is clear from the start that Rigney has a monumental task. Lewis wrote a lot and clearly had development in his thought throughout his life. Some of … Continue reading

Bonhoeffer on the Christian Life  by Stephen J. Nichols is part of the “Theologians on the Christian Life” series from Crossway.

Book Review: “Edwards on the Christian Life” by Dane C. Ortlund

Jonathan Edwards is perhaps the most famous of all American theologians. Edwards on the Christian Life draws from his enormous body of work to provide insight into Christian life. The book is organized around chapters which each focus on one aspect of the Christian life, according to Edwards. Chapters include Joy, Beauty, Heaven, Satan, and more. Each … Continue reading

Book Review: “Augustine on the Christian Life” by Gerald Bray

Gerald Bray’s Augustine on the Christian Life is written in a very different style from previous entries in the “Theologians on the Christian Life” series–at least those that I have read. It is organized around a mere five chapters, each focusing on an aspect of Augustine’s own life: life and times of Augustine, Augustine as believer, … Continue reading

Book Review: “Owen on the Christian Life” by Matthew Barrett and Michael Haykin

Owen on the Christian Life provides a broad-spectrum approach to John Owen’s theological insights into the Christian life. It is part of the “Theologians on the Christian Life” series from Crossway (see my other reviews in this series here). John Owen was a Puritan. Yes, one of “those people.” The word “puritan” has something of a bad … Continue reading

Book Review: “Bavinck on the Christian Life” by John Bolt

Bavinck on the Christian Life is another entry in the “Theologians on the Christian Life” series from Crossway. Check out my other reviews in the series. The chapter on union with Christ is particularly insightful. Bolt draws out Bavinck’s insights into Christology, which include going beyond redemption and looking to eschatology and creation as important aspects … Continue reading

Book Review: “Packer on the Christian Life” by Sam Storms

Packer on the Christian Life by Sam Storms summarizes much of J.I. Packer’s thoughts that answer the question “How now shall we live?” I’ve enjoyed Storms’ works before and have been curious to learn more about Packer, so I was looking forward to this read. The book starts with some brief biographical information on Packer. Then, … Continue reading

Book Review: “John Newton on the Christian Life” by Tony Reinke

Newton on the Christian Life presents the theology of John Newton (more on that later) in light of Christian living. Central to Newton’s theology is the notion that “to live is Christ.” We as Christians are to continually rely upon Christ in all things. The book has only parts of Newton’s biographical information found throughout the various chapters, … Continue reading

Book Review: “Luther on the Christian Life” by Carl Trueman

Carl Trueman’s Luther on the Christian Life is a very entertaining work highlighting Luther’s view of how we should live as sinner/saints. Understanding Luther, argues Trueman, means at least in part to understand his own life and the pressures that exerted on his thought. Thus, in the first chapter (and throughout), readers get a picture of what … Continue reading

Arrival: Your Life Matters – A Christian Perspective

I had the chance to watch “Arrival” this past weekend. It was excellent. I can’t emphasize enough how much good science fiction is steeped in worldview and forces us to reflect upon humanity. “Arrival” is just that: excellent science fiction. Here, I will discuss worldview issues the film brought forward from a Christian perspective. There … Continue reading
