Covenantal Apologetics by K. Scott Oliphint

The book is Covenantal Apologetics by K. Scott Oliphint. I read the 2013 Crossway paperback edition. I read it in the summer of 2020.  I read this because I want to learn more about presuppositional apologetics. But as Oliphint says, we should call it covenantal apologetics. I first learned about this form of Christian apologetics... Continue Reading →

Augustus by Anthony Everitt

The book is Augustus by Anthony Everitt. I read the 2007 Random House trade paperback edition.  I read it because Augustus was the Emperor of Rome when Christ was born, and I’m fascinated by the origins of things. We have a tendency to displace the Bible from history. There was a whole world going on... Continue Reading →

Martin Luther by Eric Metaxas

The book is Martin Luther by Eric Metaxas. Originally published in 2017. I read the 2018 paperback edition.  I read this book because I want to learn more about Christian Church history and Luther’s big double-chinned face kept staring at me from the cover every time I walked past it at Barnes & Noble. I’m... Continue Reading →

Dune by Frank Herbert

Dune was first published in two parts in a science fiction magazine called Analog in 1965. I read the ACE 2005 trade paperback edition (ACE is an imprint of Penguin Random House).  I read Dune because the movie is coming out this year (2020). The trailer looked cool and I wanted to check the book... Continue Reading →

A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking

Hawking continually mentions God but I can’t tell if he’s actually acknowledging him or merely placating any theistic readers.  It was originally published in 1988, but I read the 2017 paperback edition with additional material.  I read this book because it has always appeared to me that the Big Bang Theory confirms a biblical truth...

Dr. Meyer has provided a thorough look into the discovery and meaning of DNA as it relates to the scientific theory of Intelligent Design.  Stephen Meyer has a Ph.D in philosophy of science from arguably the most scientifically prolific site in academia, the University of Cambridge. He is the director of the Discovery Institute and... Continue Reading →

How To Die by Seneca

With a title like How to Die, I had to check it out. Also, it’s part of a series of books from Princeton University Press called Ancient Wisdom for Modern Readers. They’re short, compact, very readable “How To” translations of ancient philosophical works. I’ve read four so far and this is my second by Seneca,... Continue Reading →
