Today, I was made aware of an infographic of the top 10 most read books in the world over the past 50 years.
It wouldn’t be a great surprise as to what remains #1. Continue reading
There was a famous Christian not too long ago who went by the name Clive Staples Lewis. He was better known as C.S. Lewis. His most well-known, non-fiction work was entitled Mere Christianity - a look at some of the reasonable and practical evidence concerning the truth of Christ and the Christian faith.

Now we have one entitled Four Views on the Role of Works at the Final Judgment.
We have four authors discussing four different views on this topic, which are as follows: Continue reading
Yesterday, I posted about a new book of John Eldredge that I’ve just begun reading. That book is entitled The Utter Relief of Holiness: How God’s Goodness Frees Us from Everything that Hinders Us.
I particularly noted the main premise of the book, or at least the main focus of ch.1. I summarised it this way: Holiness and wholeness are connected. To become holy is to become whole, as God intended and created us to be. And to be made whole comes through healing, healing deep within.
In the book, Eldredge suggests that there are 4 aspects of the Christian life that can get over-emphasised at times. They are: Continue reading
