Piper, John. The Supremacy of God in Preaching. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 1990. 105 pages. This is one of Piper’s early works. It is concise (at 105 pages) and focused. It’s focus is not on the details of homiletic approach, but the philosophy of homiletics. The goal and means. Piper makes his case that God is the centre of everything and therefore should be the centre of preaching. He then looks at the life and ministry of Jonathan Edwards to illustrate God-centred preaching. Piper’s arguments are brief and simple, profound and sweet. If you preach, I believe you will benefit from this book. Grace to you. Read more
Boice, James Montgomery & Ryken, Philip Graham. The Doctrines of Grace: Rediscovering the Evangelical Gospel. Illinois: Crossway Books. 240 pages. This is the first book I’ve ever read on Calvinism. I believe it would be beneficial for the non-Calvinist who wants to understand what Calvinism is according to a Calvinist. I think it would also be beneficial to the person who is connected with a Calvinist church but isn’t clear on exactly what the doctrines of grace are and what it means to be a Calvinist; in other words, you’re not sure you’re a Calvinist. For those who love the doctrines of grace, this book will be a refreshing, devotional reminder of the gospel you cherish. For those who do not, you may find your understanding of the gospel challenged fundamentally. This is all the mor... Read more

Murray, Iain H.. Spurgeon v. Hyper-Calvinism: The Battle for Gospel Preaching. Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 2010. 152 pages. For those in gen X and Y, a world in which Calvinism is the dominant thread of Protestant Christianity is unthinkable. Yet in many places, and for much of recent history (think the last five centuries), this has been the reality. It was in this era that the young missionary was met with the stinging words: “Young man, sit down; when God pleases to convert the heathen, he will do it without your aid and mine.” Thankfully, the confirmed Calvinist father of mission, William Carey, pressed forward anyway. It was ten days after his death that another man was born. Charles Spurgeon was destined to be the prince of preachers and another avowed Calvinist. But while some might... Read more
Carson, D. A.. A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and his prayers. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 1992. 232 pages. This is a book about prayer. From Paul’s prayers. This book is revival fodder. Carson shows us what to pray by showing us what Paul prayed. Looking back, years after my first contact with this book, I can see that this book completely reshaped the way I pray today. While this work is not as precise as some of his later works, Carson is, nevertheless, the most precise thinker I’ve ever encountered. This, combined with his warm-hearted devotion to God, makes him the kind of theologian I want to hang around. If you’re looking for a book that will challenge you at the very core of your spiritual life, I commend this book to you for your growth and joy in God... Read more
