Reading Log: April 2010

May 5, 2010

By Grace Along: How the Grace of God Amazes Me, Sinclair Ferguson.  What a great little book.  Ferguson has a glorious way of explaining the gospel that aids the Christian to rejoice in it and prepare their hearts for heaven. I can’t say anything much more greater about it than that.

Church Planting Is for Wimps: How God Uses Messed-up People to Plant Ordinary Churches That Do Extraordinary Things, by Michael McKinley.  This a funny (laugh out-loud funny) and, still, very helpful for you pastor types like me.  McKinley is thoughtful and smart. I’m glad for this book and for the opportunity to read it.

You Can Change: God’s Transforming Power for Our Sinful Behavior and Negative Emotions, by Tim Chester. More pastoral and practical than the CCEF/Biblical Counseling material, though, obviously relies upon the thinking of Paul Tripp, David Powilson, and others as its foundation. Its less conceptual, but is most helpful for biblical change since it rests upon the hope of the gospel.  See my review at TGC Reviews.
