Book Review: A Biblical Counseling Process (Lauren Whitman)

As a Christian who is looking for resources that will help us as individuals and as a member of a church we need something that is completely saturated with the Gospel. The Gospel is the factor not just to save us from our sins but also drive us into action. The Gospel compel us to reach out to this lost world to give answers filled with hope. We are not just to give answers that spells apologetics but answers that will cater to other needs. Due to the changing times and culture, we find ourselves gravitating to resources that are effective and concise. Which might be a challenge to authors that carries a weighty message. Conveying it in a short volume might steal the essentials needed to connect the message to those who are in need.

Book Review: “Consider Your Counsel” (Bob W. Kellemen)

In every ministry there will always be flaws. No matter how good the method or program it administers, there will be some shortcomings. We are finite beings and sinners. No ministry is foolproof. It is by God’s grace that He allows us to work on a ministry. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t address those we can see and polish it to be better. Specifically, in biblical counseling, as we engage to fellow image bearers and helping them to be connected to the Scriptures. Resources are welcome to fix what we are already practicing. And that’s were Consider Your Counsel steps in.

Book Review: “Charitable Writing”(Richard Hughes Gibson and James E. Beitler III)

Finally, I have finished this great book on writing and now I want to share not just quotes from it but my impression of this volume. It’s took me a few months before I finish this due to the fact that I have to give way to other books that is short so I can have something to put on my blog. But as I lay aside this book and the parts I already read, the content still is stuck in my mind all throughout those time that’s why I was so eager to pick it up and finish it.

The introduction to Charitable Writing is of course essential but its a bit long. However, once you get out of the woods and it will be a smooth and enjoyable ride. Its a long read so expect it to be grueling but interesting journey.

Book Review: “Parenting Essentials” by Andreas & Margaret Köstenberger

gdkrb6v

If you think the name Andreas Kostenberger,  is a bit daunting with this book, because of the books he previously wrote ( Going Deep in New Testament Greek, The Heresy of Orthodoxy, Invitation to Biblical Interpretation), well that’s what I felt when I got this book. To be honest, I haven’t read anything from this author.  However, I want to challenge myself. Knowing Kostenberger’s caliber, I should brace myself on reading this book that at first I thought it was written in an scholarly ivory tower. It turns out, as I take start reading, it is as if the book was written in a living room or perhaps at the porch. What I mean to say is that this short book is down to earth and very accessible. Nothing so daunting in this book.
