Getting to Know Satan

This is a book that quite simply introduces us to the devil. Who is he? Where did he come from? We learn that his main job is to destroy and undermine the goodness of God’s creation. “He defaces the image of God in human beings”. (p.23) Mike looks at Satan’s strategies in the world today, […]

Are We All New Calvinists?

More booklet than book, this is a short, snappy, punchy, and irenic (I looked it up—it means peaceable) look at what Jeremy (Walker sounds so formal and JW has other connotations) has termed ‘New Calvinists’. To be fair to him, it’s not his term, but he does adopt it and apply it to various high […]

Why Our Housing Schemes are not 'Post-Christian'

There is lots of talk around at the moment about ‘cultural defeaters’ (a la Keller) and ‘common grace bridges’ when it comes to talk about the ‘Post-Christian’ West. Personally, I think we need to be more careful about what we mean by using the term ‘Post-Christian’, because we certainly wouldn’t want to confuse it with […]

Life Lessons from Jonathan Edwards (4)

Part IV: War, Princeton, Death & Other Stuff All the drama of Edwards’ life was being played out amid the backdrop of worldwide upheaval. In 1754, the international scene was becoming very unstable. On the home front, Benjamin Franklin met with leaders from seven other colonies to discuss the French intentions in the frontiers. The […]

Life Lessons from Jonathan Edwards (3)

Part III: Sacked, Yet More Opposition, Indians & Other Stuff In the public arena, at least, the ‘Northampton Controversy’ of 1749 was concerned with Edward’s supposedly ‘new’ view on Communion and Baptism (he denied the charge that it was new). Edwards wanted to restrict communion to believing members only and restrict infant baptism to full […]

Life Lessons from Jonathan Edwards (2)

Part II: Snappy Book Titles, More Revival, Opposition & Other Stuff What I particularly like about this biography is that it never seeks to paint Edwards in a sinless light. His weaknesses are laid bare, not least his tendency for hyperbole in some of his writings, but also his penchant for ‘editing’ the opinions of […]

Life Lessons From Jonathan Edwards (1)

A sizeable 615 pages (the last 100 or so being footnotes and appendices), this is the sort of book that strikes fear into all but the most avid of readers. It looks unwieldy and intimidating, but I think that it is so good that it merits a long review over 4 parts. . . . […]

Dealing with People Who Don't Understand that We Are Always Right

“We cannot defend the truth by creating caricatures.” So stands the conviction of the White Horse Inn as they have been engaging in debates with people from all sorts of theological persuasions over the last two decades. The web is a troll’s dream come true, as they move around from blog to blog and twitter […]

Why Would a Baptist Want to Help Build Healthy Presbyterian Churches?

I am a (very convinced) Reformed Baptist, ministering and working in an independent Evangelical Church. I have even written a short book on preparing people (confessing believers) for baptism (see here for details). Since my move to Scotland six years ago, I became aware of ‘Presbyterians’ of all shapes and forms. Free Church, C of […]
