Dr. Haykin brings to life the times and people that brought about the Baptist revivals of the late 18th and early 19th century. This book is easily accessible and historically rewarding for every reader, and in Haykin’s style, provides the reader with not only the facts but a usable past for their own contemporary Christian journey. A must read is you desire to learn more about revival, baptist or evangelical history. The book is also a great introduction into the period of history that I will be studying.
In this modern paraphrase Bob Beltz brings to life a book that transformed a nation. After his conversion the Lord placed upon Wilberforce’s heart the desire to end slavery. This could only happen if the hearts of stone and evil among the people, and leaders, were transformed by the Gospel. Real Christianity was Wilberforce’s successful attempt to transform the hearts of the nation to lead their conscience. This book also powerfully displays his robust evangelical worldview that undergirded his social engagement and reform. To read the original click here.
As a fellow owner of a Border Collie, agricultural and outdoorsman, I completely resonate with the story and message of Keller in this book. It is the story of redemption and sanctification told through lessons of a sheepdog. Highly accessible, a great story and all with profound theological takeaway!
