Historic Rules for Reading the Bible
Derek Morphew Puplications
Fantastic and exciting book. I loved the clear hermeneutical principles in it. This book has deepened both my understanding of scripture and my ability to actually teach it. Excellent and freeing book that is well worth the read.
The Message, Form, and Background of the Old Testament.
William Sanford Lasor
David Allan Hubbard
Frederic William Bush
William B Eerdmans Publishing Company
Intensely boring and intensely interesting. I have only read Chapters 16, 18-23 & 27. The book appears to be very detailed and for those who want to do an in-depth Old Testament study an excellent read.
Chapters 12-15, 31, 41, 42, 43, 44, 49 & 50
For me this is a heavy book. It is also valuable and enlightening resource. I am very thankful every-time I delve into it, but still do not necessarily find it easy.
Just a little Paypal button for those who were at my seminar in Sweden last week and wanted to donate towards the price of my book.
by Lief Carlsen
[spoiler alert] I liked this book and found it quite educational. The eBook version was not well prepared, however it was well written.
The author had an interesting way of writing about his wife. Though this was often irritating, it often led him to be quite candid when talking about his wife's cycle underwear and saddle-saw. This was not something that I had read before and was helpful preparation for our upcoming cycling trip.
I also learnt a lot about camping in town limits, though sadly halfway across they sent their tent home and opted for motels. This was slightly rescued near the end when they met other camping cyclist.
Taking The Hard Road To Baghdad
[Borrowed secondhand hardcover]
Factual, interesting and well written. Altogether a very good book that talks about the life of Saddam Husein and John Simpson's reporting from Iraq. The book come with some interesting insights in journalism and also seems to be quite balanced.
A Historical and Theological Survey (Encountering Biblical Studies) 3rd addition
by Walter A. Elwell, Robert W. Yarbrough
To date I have only read chapters 1, 2, 10, 22, 23 & the epilogue. Excellent book, thoroughly enjoyed studying it and learnt heaps.
Well written and well presented.
Planting a Church that’s Biblically Sound and Reaching People in Culture
Broodman & Holman Publishers
This was not a book that I would like to give our church members. It was misogynistic in the sense of almost totally not acknowledging the roles of women in church-planting. It was also very ethnocentric, I had to filter through chapters of material that either simply did not apply or the numbers had to be drastically scaled to fit our non-USA/Canadian location.
There were things in the book that I did find useful and by the end I started to like the author.
However it still ends up with a two out of five.
