Book Review Updates

We had a busy week over at Discerning Reader and I thought I’d fill you in one some of the new reviews you can find there.

Along with my review of Thabiti Anyabwile’s The Decline of African American Theology (which I posted here yesterday), I’ve also added a review of Edward Gilbreath’s Reconciliation Blues. Both books deal with racial issues and both are well worth the read.

From Mark Tubbs comes a review of the book that followed the 2006 Desiring God Conference, The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World. The book features contributions by John Piper, D.A. Carson, Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, Voddie Baucham and David Wells. Leslie Wiggins has a review of what looks to be an excellent new Bible Study book for women, With the Master In the School of Tested Faith. She says, ” Susan Heck has filled the vacuum of solid Bible studies for women. I am so thankful for this Bible study and I am very happy to recommend it.”

From Scott Lamb comes a review of the newly published second edition of Paul House and Eric Mitchell’s Old Testament Theology.

Finally, we have reviews of two newly-published Study Bibles. The first, The Apologetics Study Bible, is published by Holman Bible Publishers and features contributions from Chuck Colson, Ravi Zacharias, Norman Geisler, J.P. Moreland and others. The second is The Literary Study Bible which is edited by the father and son team of Leland and Phillip Ryken and published by Crossway.
