Martin's April 2019 Book List
Below is a summary of the books reviewed in April's Book List
The Noble Liar: How and Why the BBC Distorts the News to Promote a Liberal Agenda by Robin Aitken
"Orthodox Christians need to read this in order to understand that the BBC’s increasing marginalisation of Christianity and its opposition to traditional Christian sexual ethics are not accidental."
The Gospel of Our King – Bible, Worldview, and the Mission of Every Christian by Bruce Ashford and Heath Thomas
"This book is both an excellent introduction to the biblical story and to the nature of Christian mission. It gives a clear orthodox Christian answer to the question of what human beings are for."
Footprints in the African Sand: My Life and Times by Michael Cassidy
"This book is important not simply as a first-hand account of the growth of African Enterprise and the eventual overthrow of Apartheid, but as a witness to what Jesus has done, and can do, though the life of someone dedicated to his service."
Predestination – A Guide for the Perplexed by Jesse Couenhoven
"Recommended for theological students, clergy and theologically educated members of the laity."
Healing the Wounds of Sexual Abuse by Elaine Heath
"This is a book which needs to be widely read. Heath’s book highlights the Bible’s resources for healing."
The Idol of Our Age: How the Religion of Humanity Subverts Christianity by Daniel J Mahoney
"This is a dense work of Christian philosophy which requires concentrated study if it is to be properly understood. However, it is an important work which Christians should take the time and effort to read."
Heretics and Believers by Peter Marshall
"Marshall’s book helps us in the process of understanding and it should be standard reading for anyone seeking to make sense of the English Reformation."
Transhumanism and the Image of God: Today's Technology and the Future of Christian Discipleship by Jacob Shatzer
"This is an important book that all thinking Christians ought to read in order to understand the way in which our culture is heading and how we should respond."
All Things New – Revelation as Canonical Capstone by Brian J Tabb
"Anyone who is called to teach or preach on Revelation should take a look at this book as should anyone who simply wants to understand Revelation better."
Liberty in the Things of God: The Christian Origins of Religious Freedom by Christopher Robert Wilken
"Wilken’s book is well worth reading by anyone who wants to understand the historical roots of the concern for religious freedom enshrined in documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights."
