Book Review

A Review of ‘The Case for Christian Nationalism’ by Stephen Wolfe Besides trafficking in sweeping and unsubstantiated claims about the totalizing control of the Globalist American Empire and the gynocracy, Wolfe’s apocalyptic vision—for all of its vitriol toward the secular elites—borrows liberally from the playbook of the left. He not only redefines the nature of […]

Innovation and originality in theology are the parents of all heresy. Douglas Wilson in his book, “Reformed” is Not Enough demonstrates this subtly but effectively. To the untrained eye his arguments may sound cohesive, helpful and clarifying. To the trained eye his arguments are heretical, and his work demonstrates his theological and historical ignorance.

This book is quite possibly the book on abolitionism in America. Evangelicals who are interested in American history need to read this work to understand our movement in its greater context. Anyone interested in abolitionism, at any scholarly level, needs to read this new comprehensive account in order to get the full picture for the first time.

Although petitions for freedom demonstrated that blacks, like numerous whites, could see the hypocrisy of perpetuating chattel slavery in the midst of a struggle against political "enslavement," few blacks had the literary skills, let alone the opportunity, to compose a theoretical statement of their views.

The first and greatest commandment is to love God; the second is like it, to love your neighbor as yourself.

If you add specialized works on particular anthropological issues like the mind/body debate, free will, sexuality, vocation, and race, theological anthropology becomes one of the hottest topics on the market today.

This week we review Wade Mullen’s excellent book, Something’s Not Right: Decoding the Hidden Tactics of Abuse–and Freeing Yourself from Its Power.

Recently, in reviewing A Church Called Tov, I said that spiritual abuse can be like living in a bad dream—not only because you can’t believe this is happening, but because none of the people you are going to for help are functioning as they should.
