I said on January 1st that I’d resume continuous blogging and I failed miserably. Mostly this is because of getting married, but also because of various things to do with my job, looking at the future and some website problems here at DeanRoberts.Net. However, I am determined now, more than ever, to start my regular blogging. Very determined indeed. And to start off, I have decided to catch up on some reviews. Unfortunately, the Old Library is still down at the moment so you will be unable to access previous reviews that I have done including some which should have…
Behold! I bring you a new book review. This time it is Living your Confirmation by Pete Maidment and Paul Butler. I actually love reading books and reviewing them. And I’ve enjoyed reviewing and reading this one in particular, as you’ll see if you click the link that will take you to the review!
Yet another book review for you to feast your eyes upon! This book is a needed text for anyone studying theology. It’s not your classic bedtime reading, but is essential if you’re doing any work on the cross, justification by faith and what that means. Have a read of the full review for more details by clicking here!
People always get excited when a new translation of the Bible comes out. This one, released recently is an accessible Bible for anyone to read, whether you have a church background or not. I’ve just reviewed the New Testament, but the whole Bible is being published in this translation very soon. Have a read on for more information!
Yes, I’m back! And to kick things off, I have a new book review: Glorious Christianity by Cally Hammond. For those of us with a more low Church and/or evangelical approach to things, books like this are great for showing us that those of different worship styles can believe in the same core beliefs about faith. Anyway – have a read of the entire review by clicking here.
I’ve just finished reading this book, and I have to say that it’s flippin’ interesting to say the least, and I feel enriched theologically for taking the time to study it. One of my modules in theology also deals with emerging theology, which includes that of Asian Theology so it added to the interest!
Lent is on it’s way! And in preparation for that, SPCK Publishing have asked me to review this book by none other than Tom Wright. I’ve recently reviewed another recent book by him called ‘Simply Jesus’, and if you’re interested in that then please see my review in the ‘library’ on my blog. But, back to the matter in hand: Lent for Everyone, Mark: Year B, is a book that
Another book review on ‘Simply Jesus by Tom Wright (Formally published as N T Wright). SPCK are very kind to me and allow me to review their books, which is pretty darn amazing! So, why not have a look at my review.
For those of you who regularly follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you will know that at the time of this post’s writing, I am currently revising for an exam on the Four Gospels and the book of Acts. A few months ago, SPCK kindly asked me to start reviewing books for them, and they have again asked me to carry on this year. This is my third book review for SPCK, and another one on N T Wright’s ‘Simply Jesus’ will be out soon! After that, there will be some more reviews on some recent book releases, and I’m…
