Steve Jobs, Criticism, and the Gospel
VFT

Book Review: Above All Earthly Powers by Wells
VFT

Above All Earthly Pow’rs is the final book in his 4-volume series, which seeks to summarize all of the previously written material. In his introductory chapter, Wells immediately tells us the point of this final work: “[It is] to be able to say more exactly how Christ, in whom divine majesty and human frailty are joined in one person, is to be heard, and is to be preached, in a postmodern, multiethnic, multireligious society” (7-8). This is the theme that is eloquently and clearly woven throughout all 317 pages of his book.

 
 
 
Book Review: Welcome to a Reformed Church by Danny Hyde
VFT

Occasionally, Reformed churches are caricatured as “boring, cold, and serious” (147). Daniel Hyde, however, shows in Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims that quite the opposite is true of those that function according to God’s Word. His book then is a “guide for pilgrims,” which winsomely introduces newcomers to Reformed churches in order “to clear up any misunderstandings” (xxvi). It does this by examining their history, confessions, doctrines, and practices.
