Some Book Reviews

Sat, 07 Dec 2013 09:28:18 +0000

This year has been an extremely busy one for me. My main focus at church has been on running a year-long leadership training course, and I’ve also been creating a lot of online technical training content. In fact, the opportunity … Continue reading



Album Review – Seven Stars (Chris Haines)

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 22:03:19 +0000

My good friend Chris Haines released his first album But God back in 2011, and I you had a chance to hear it, you’ll be pleased to hear that the eagerly anticipated follow-on album was released earlier this year. In … Continue reading



Spurgeon on Sermon Lengths

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:26:55 +0000

One of my favourite quotes from Spurgeon is on the appropriate length of sermons. I was sure it was in Lectures to My Students, but somehow it managed to evade all my attempts to find it. But I eventually located … Continue reading



Book Review – Life in the Trinity (Donald Fairbairn)

Sat, 11 May 2013 15:04:57 +0000

From its title, you might expect that this is simply another book aimed at helping the ordinary Christian get to grips with the sometimes perplexing doctrine of the Trinity. But its scope is much wider than this. The subtitle reveals … Continue reading



Book Review – Mere Apologetics (Alister McGrath)

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 06:43:47 +0000

Apologetics is a subject I rarely read books on. It’s partly because it feels like “cheating” to borrow someone else’s reasons to believe instead of thinking for yourself. But I think there is an important place for learning from those … Continue reading



Book Review – The King Jesus Gospel (Scot McKnight)

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 12:59:06 +0000

In this book, Scot McKnight challenges evangelicals as to whether we have truly understood what the “gospel” is. He draws on the work of N T Wright and Dallas Willard, both of whom provide forewords. He claims that many evangelicals … Continue reading



Book Review–Hearing Her Voice (John Dickson)

Sun, 10 Mar 2013 16:31:21 +0000

This short book seems to be doing the rounds within TNOCFKANF (the network of churches formerly known as newfrontiers). Newfrontiers churches typically hold to a “complementarian” position, believing that Scripture teaches that only men are appointed as elders, whilst all … Continue reading



New Album–From Jerusalem to Rome

Sun, 17 Feb 2013 08:39:20 +0000

If you’ve followed this blog for some time, you’ll know that I occasionally post about my home studio recordings. One project which I have been working at on and off for over a decade now is a concept album around … Continue reading



Book Review – The Message of Thessalonians (John Stott)

Fri, 04 Jan 2013 18:35:35 +0000

This is actually the second time I have read (and reviewed) this book in the Bible Speaks Today series, but since I was recently going through Thessalonians again, I wanted to re-read it. I feel I have a great collection … Continue reading



Book Review – Reaching Muslims (Nick Chatrath)

Thu, 03 Jan 2013 22:46:06 +0000

I attended sixth form college in Luton, where roughly a third of the students were Muslims. It meant I made a lot of Muslim friends and had interesting debates with many of them. But since moving away from Luton I … Continue reading
