‘Dripping with doctrine yet easy to follow, with apt illustration and rich vocabulary, this book can be placed in the hands of the newest believer or the oldest saint for their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace.’ – Bob Thomas on the Trust’s new paperback of Spurgeon’s sermons, Christ’s Glorious Achievements.

Notes

Bob Thomas (Melbourne), in Australia’s online Christian newspaper, New Life (1 September 2014, page 16), finds Spurgeon – in Christ’s Glorious Achievements – ‘the great exemplar’ for preaching ‘Christ and him crucified.’

And Alan Hill (Montreux, Switzerland) says that Christ’s Glorious Achievements is ‘a glorious book on a glorious subject,’ at the Good Book Reviews website.

Terry Delaney (Mexico, Missouri), on his ‘Christian Book Notes’ blog, recommends Hugh Martin’s The Atonement, and ‘cannot think of any other treatment of the subject that is more in depth.’

He also recommends the new Pocket Puritan of John Flavel quotations, None but Jesus, ‘a way to introduce one of the choicest of divines to modern readers.’

Alan Hill (Good Book Reviews website) is equally enthusiastic: ‘a wonderful hors d’oeuvres—full of tasty titbits.’

He has also been reading Pleading for a Reformation Vision: The Life & Selected Writings of William Childs Robinson (1897-1982). ‘you will . . . find your mind stretched and your spiritual horizons widened as you read excerpts from one of the 20th century’s most faithful theologians.’

Greg Goswell (Sydney, Australia), in New Life (15 August 2014, page 15) finds it ‘a great treat’ to read Selected Writings of Benjamin Morgan Palmer – ‘writing that does not quickly date, for it is at once devotional, expository and practical.’

He was also enthusiastic about Andrew Bonar’s Gospel Basics, again in New Life (1 July 2014, page 16) – ‘Every preacher of the Gospel should read this book.’

Finally, George Hunter found ‘gems of insight into the text’ in the latest title in the ‘Let’s Study’ series – Mark Johnston’s Let’s Study Colossians and Philemon – on the Baptist Union of Scotland website (you will need to scroll down to find it, as reviews do not have their own URL).

Let me get my caveats out of the way first. Yes, I have preached my share of long sermons (more on that in a moment). I don’t do many 15-minute homilies. My last four sermons on the Christ Covenant website (as of Monday) were 43 minutes, 46 minutes, 46 minutes, and 36 minutes. I aim […]

How to Fight Distraction in Worship: Wisdom From Thomas Brooks October 3, 2018

Instead of lifting my soul to gaze upon the Lord’s beauty while in a church service or reading my Bible at home, my mind drifts to my plans for later in the day, my favorite sports team, or to what is stressing me — and Satan loves it. When our minds are somewhere else, they […]
