I hope you enjoy these brief reviews and that they become helpful recommendations.
Galatians: An Expositional Commentary ~ R.C. Sproul
Out of all the commentaries that I have explored, the nature of this commentary on Galatians is the most concise, brief, and practical. This work is from R.C. Sproul’s sermon series when serving as co-pastor at St. Andrews Chapel in Sanford, Florida. Although this work is of the reformed tradition, it has great practical and critical look at Galatians.\
I would recommend it as a 8.5 out of 10! Definitely a must read!
A Grief Observed ~ C.S. Lewis
This work by C.S. Lewis is a work that forces deep introspection into self and reflection on our ideals of grief and what it is. This is written by Lewis following the death of his wife and allows a free space to question feelings that Christians are scared of having in the midst of loss. This is a must read Lewis work!
Strange Fire ~ John MacArthur
Strange Fire is a powerful discourse on the worldly power of the charismatic movement. MacArthur discusses how the charismatic movement misrepresents the Holy Spirit and the Biblical view of authentic worship. What ever side of the spectrum of Christian belief you find yourself on, I pray you enjoy this informative work. Once again, another great MacArthur work!
Grace ~ Lewis Sperry Chafer
In this work, Chafer as a master theologian, masterfully discusses the distinction between grace and law in a dispensational context. Although many dispensationalists are going have different takes on this work, the overall breadth of this work is incredible. An absolute must read for theologians who appreciates a literal interpretation of Scripture.
The Normal Christian Life ~ Watchman Nee
The Normal Christian Life looks into Romans 5-8 and the functionality of the Gospel. Nee explores how the Gospel plays out in the day to day lives of Christians and provides incredible practical insight from a man who suffered much for the Gospel. I pray you enjoy!
Enriching Grace Commentary of 2 Timothy ~ Jacob Harris
This book is my third work in Enriching Grace’s, Understanding the Faith, series. We delayed the arrival of this work, so that 1 Timothy could be rightly digested in preparation for Paul’s final work preceding his death. We pray you read this work alongside an open Bible and edified, able to stand and “teach no other doctrine.”
Although I may be slightly bias, I recommend this work highly!
This is Enriching Grace’s new compiled notes on Ephesians! It is the first published work by contributor Jacob Harris and is intended to be a very practical look into the epistle. This commentary is now available on Amazon. This is an exciting time in the ministry!
This is the second published work by Enriching Grace and its emphasis is on the epistle of 1 Timothy! It is the second work of contributor Jacob Harris and once again intends to take a look to practical applications of the letter while allowing it to remain within its proper context! Excited for this bit of our ministry to be shared!
This is the recommended read list for the month of October!
Lastly, I hope you were enriched in some way through these suggestions and leave a comment if you have read any of these books or have a comment to make!
