Book Review: CSB Worldview Study Bible

WSBHolman’s Christian Standard Bible Worldview Study Bible is an excellent resource for someone looking for a solid translation of Scripture combined with good study notes and articles that layout a balanced orthodox view of worldview issues in the world.

The contributing authors to the articles cover a vast range of topics – some “closed-handed” essentials to orthodox Christianity and some “open-handed” issues related to a Christian worldview. The authors do a fair job in presenting multiple angles to open-handed issues while also standing firm on key issues of the faith.

Book Review: Eschatological Discipleship

edEschatological Discipleship: Leading Christians to Understand Their Historical and Cultural Context by Trevin Wax is an academic read whose main thesis is based on “What time is it?” in human history. The book walks the reader through insights from the Old Testament, Matthew, Luke, Acts, church history, and our present age.

The book does a great job of driving home the point that eschatological discipleship is a key feature throughout the entire Bible and a key point in Christian discipleship. On the other side, the book is so academic in its study of eschatology and discipleship that it does not provide much practical help in assisting Christians in carrying out eschatological discipleship in the here and now.

Book Review: Searching for Spring

springSearching for Spring: How God Makes All Things Beautiful in Time by Christine Hoover artistically walks the reader through the nature of pain and suffering using the analogy of the nature’s seasons. The poetic prose captures the beauty and mystery of the struggle of walking through the unknown paths of life’s agonies. The author does a good job of not offering simplistic answers to the problems of pain while also pointing the reader to the hope of the gospel in Jesus Christ both in the present and in the future.
