Danny Zacharias and Benjamin K. Forrest. Surviving and Thriving in Seminary: An Academic and Spiritual Handbook. Bellingham, WA: Lexham, 2017.
That was the title of a conference Bethlehem College & Seminary hosted last month. It featured new books on how to read the Bible by three of our professors.
Here are the five videos from the conference (three talks, two Q&As): [Read more…] about Eureka! Discovering Gold in God’s Word
My latest book attempts to survey and analyze “let go and let God” theology:
Andrew David Naselli. No Quick Fix: Where Higher Life Theology Came From, What It Is, and Why It’s Harmful. Bellingham, WA: Lexham, 2017. xi + 123 pp.
- 18-page sample PDF. The PDF begins with 15 generous endorsements. (I’m also grateful to John MacArthur for writing the Afterword.)
- Available from Amazon and Westminster Bookstore
- Available for Kindle and Logos Bible Software
(The book’s “Acknowledgments” page should mention three Faithlife employees: Elliot Ritzema for shepherding the book through the editorial process, Bryan Hintz for designing the clever cover, and my friend Mark Ward for writing the title’s black letters by hand.)

P&R Publishing recently released these two books:
P&R Publishing has partnered with Bethlehem College & Seminary to offer a special discount: for a limited time (until August 4), my school’s bookstore is selling these books at 30% off for one or 40% off for both, and all orders contribute proceeds to my school ($11.20 when buying one book and $19.20 when buying both). Details here.
Michael P. V. Barrett. Complete in Him: A Guide to Understanding and Enjoying the Gospel. 2nd ed. Grand Rapids: Reformation Heritage, 2017.
Barrett correlates what the whole Bible teaches about the gospel in a way that is organized, clear, faithful, and edifying. As he says over and over, right thinking about the gospel produces right living in the gospel. The better you understand the gospel, the better you can enjoy it.
I enjoyed reading this new book last week by my favorite United States Senator:
Ben Sasse. The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis—and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance. New York: St. Martin’s, 2017.
It’s unusual for a U.S. Senator to write a book like this. It’s not politically partisan. It’s more like a philosophical and practical book on parenting.
Sasse convincingly argues that kids should read great books and work hard and that parents should strategically introduce their children to different world cultures so that they better understand their own.
