Book Review: The Case For Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ, by Brant Pitre, New York: Image, 2016, 242 pages, hdbk. I suppose that the first thing I ought to say is that this is not The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel, nor is it related to the set of books spawnedContinue Reading
“Hermeneutics is not just the art and science of how to interpret, but is also reflection on how we already interpret. This is tacitly acknowledged on page 65 n.22 where there is a suggestion made to meditate on passages in the Psalms and Isaiah before interpreting. But they quickly go on to affirm the importance of “the literary and linguistic aspects of the biblical material” (66). This point is well taken, but it is in the employment of these aspects within a theological matrix that is often the problem.”
A Brief Testimony Before I became a Christian at the age of 25 I had a yearning for truth. I tried to find it, of all places, at the local pub, ‘The Bull’. Not the deep truth of philosophers; just the everyday truth of belonging. Real Ale and parties and pub banter provided the backdropContinue Reading
“Kregel’s Exegetical Commentary series has already made a strong impact with works by Allen Ross on Psalms and Robert Chisholm on Judges/Ruth, and Garrett doesn’t let the side down.

“Looked at simply as a book about presuppositional apologetics this is a welcome addition. Between the customary Introduction and Conclusion there are seven informative chapters… the author has thought through how best to present the logic of the approach, and he brings in some useful refinements in this area; refinements which readers will appreciate.”
“In their choice of William Edgar to write this book the publishers could not have done better. Edgar was converted through Schaeffer’s ministry and knew the Schaeffer’s well. Although Edgar incorporates personal reminiscences and reflections on the man, his evaluation is free of sentimentality and panegyric. Schaeffer on the Christian Life is a sympathetic yet objective appraisal of its subject, calculated to promote the spirituality it records.”
There have been many reviews of this book from different sources, but this is one of the very few from a ‘dispensational’ perspective.
On the Shoulders of Hobbits is more than just an entertaining read. He is concerned about illustrating the virtues (Justice, Self-control, Wisdom, Courage, Faith, Hope, Love), by means of, primarily, The Lord of the Rings [LOTR] and, secondarily, The Chronicles of Narnia, and what he has to say should be heeded.
David Bentley Hart’s Atheist Delusions is a book that seeks to address the arrogant dismissals of the positive influence of Christianity upon the world. Atheist Delusions by David Bentley HartContinue Reading
