2021 may turn out to be the best year for new books in recent (or even distant) memory. As I sat down to compile my list, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the list far exceeds the typical ten best books that I have selected in previous years. And I now know why. The Covid-19 pandemic! If there is one good thing that came from the pandemic it is that many of us were confined to home for a considerable period of time and had ample opportunity to write more than...Read More

How big is your God? Is he big enough to create the universe and uphold it by the word of his power and providentially govern its direction and bring about the consummation of all things in precisely the way that he planned? Or do you worship and love and serve a tiny god, a pygmy god, a diminutive deity, a wee little god who easily fits in your back pocket or in a box of your own making, a so-called god who is unsure of himself and can’t guarantee that anything he...Read More

It’s time for a personal confession. There are times, more than I’d like to admit, when I get extremely impatient. In most of those instances, I feel entirely justified in my reaction to people that stand in the way of my getting somewhere on time or who do something that I regard as inexcusable that disrupts my schedule. It was last Friday morning, November 12th. I was in a hurry to get some errands accomplished before making my 9 a.m. appointment to have t...Read More

That the Son of God assumed or took on human flesh in what we call the Incarnation is beyond dispute. But what kind of “flesh” did the Son of God assume unto himself when he became human? Was it fallen, sinful flesh, like yours and mine? Or was it unfallen flesh, devoid of the inherent sinful impulses that we all experience? In other words, were the temptations that Jesus encountered (Heb. 4:15) entirely external to himself, or did he resist promptings and te...Read More

As glorious and wonderful and reassuring as Romans 8:28 is, it’s important to know that it is not universal in its application. Paul specifically says that God orchestrates all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose. No unbeliever, no non-Christian can have any assurance that any good will come from any “thing” he/she experiences. Of course, Paul is not suggesting that God is sovereign only over that portion o...Read More

As we turn our attention once again to Romans 8:28, note well that Paul does not say all things are good, but that God is more than capable of causing them to work together for good. Nowhere does the Bible suggest that things like disease or poverty or pain are good things. God is not saying to us in this text, “Hey, those bad things aren’t really all that bad.” God doesn’t minimize or trivialize your hurts and the harm that comes your way. Neith...Read More
