"Covers the issues of authorship, theology, source criticism, structure, etc. Fairly conservative, but non-dogmatic and well-reasoned. France displays a thorough acquaintence with previous important works on Matthew with which he interacts. Especially helpful is his insight into the purpose of the book. Along the way are such sidebar topics as Matthew's relation to Paul and to Israel."
"Possibly THE definitive work on the relationship dynamics among Christians married to unbelievers. Includes personal testimony from the authors, suggestions for reaching one's spouse, how to minister to the mismatched, arguments for dating and marrying within the faith, a 30-day prayer guide, and much more."
"Probably the best work out there supporting the view that souls are not immortal, but that everlasting life is conditioned upon acceptance of Christ. This counters the traditional view that souls in hell burn in never-ending torment. Well-researched scripturally including Apocryphal and Pseudipigraphal expositions."
"Theology and Apologetics come together in this work by a former missionary to post World War II Germany. Gatewood elaborates on the attributes of God, addresses the problem of suffering, and presents many challenges to Darwinistic theory. Written on an intermeidate level with short chapters that enhance comprehension."
"While Nee was thoroughly committed to a tripartite anthropology even those unconvinced will gain insights into a truly holistic spirituality. While the tripartite view is thorougly consistent with Plato, Nee's definition of "soul" seems more biblical than Platonic Western notions. A bit charismatic or cumbersome at times, but still insightful."
"A well written and well organized catalog of worldviews. The fifth edition is worth reading, with additional chapters on Postmodernism, the New Age, and Islam. Plus a rewritten chapter on Deism. A great help in a culturally diverse climate."
"This book appealed to me for its church history made simpler. Berry's down-to-earth and often humorous writing style makes learning fun. Denominations are grouped according to Liturgical, Traditional, Contemporary, and Free-form. Introductory chapters cover what to look for before choosing a church home. Major creeds & historical timeline included in the back. Excellent!"
"A masterpiece which finds middle ground between the secularist vision for America and the "Christian nation" proponents. An honest assesment of the Founding Fathers and the history of religion in American politics. Very well-documented."
"Personal accounts of those who lived through the World War II years either in combat or on the homefront, both famous and common folk. Young people were forced to grow up quickly as America collectively sacrificed to defend the nation. Builds greater understanding and appreciation for this vanishing generation."
"A readable integration of much Stone-Campbell literature dealing with biblical interpretation. Good appeal to the primary sources of Alexander and Thomas Campbell. A good primer on biblical interpretation which offers some conservative conclusions while rejecting the pattern hermeneutic of CEI for a more grace-oriented approach."
