The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone

The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone covers the history of the Bible in writing, translation, and its effect on civilization throughout the ages. Stone explores the history of the Bible from hand-written copies to modern day printings, and discusses the Scriptures from their original languages, to manuscripts, to the many English translations available both today and in the past. This book is not just a book; it is a museum in a book. It includes over 90 illustrations and 23 removable life-size reproductions from the world’s most important Bibles. These reproductions are inserted into pockets throughout the book. Timelines chart and show what took place when, giving the reader a firm grasp on the history of the Word of God. This is a fun book to read and thumb through. The images and reproductions help the reader grasp and appreciate the dangerous business of Bible translation and publishing. I especially enjoyed the sections on the Sumarian city of UR, Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the first Bibles translated and printed into English. Stone explains why each scroll, manuscript, translation, and printing was important, and how they affected the people of the time. I highly recommend The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone. It is a fun and fascinating look at the story of the Bible.   Thomas Nelson Publishers provided the review copy for...

Galileo by Mitch Stokes

Galileo by Mitch Stokes is part of the Christian Encounters series and is a fascinating biography of Galileo Galilei. When most people hear the name Galileo, they do not think of Christianity. They think instead of long nights of watching the stars through telescopes. Most do not know that Galileo was interested in the Bible and wanted to be a Monk in 1500s Italy. Mitch Stokes has writing another intriguing biography that captivates the reader- this time placing the reader in the life of Galileo Galilei. Stokes shows the unique history of ancient Italy and how it was intermixed with Christianity and Philosophy. Stokes even talks about how Christianity (the medieval version of it, which was primarily Catholicism) was mixed with Aristotlism to become Medieval Philosophy and taught as part of the medical program at the University that Galileo attended in the 1500s. One of my favorite portions of the book is Galileo’s role in modern Astronomy and the affect it had on the general Christianity of the time. The primary teachings on the universe were from the works of Aristotle. Aristotle had developed the idea that the universe centered around Earth, and the sun, moon, planets, and stars were embedded in enormous crystalline spheres that revolved around the Earth. Galileo showed through his calculations of centers of gravity that the Earth is not the center of the universe...

Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes

Isaac Newton was a brilliant scientist, mathematician, inventor, philosopher, and creationist. Isaac Newton is considered one of the most important scientists of all time, giving us the scientific laws of motion, the Law of Gravity, and Calculus. This book is a gripping biography of the life is Isaac Newton. Mitch Stokes shows the events that started Newton down the path of scientific study. Stokes also talks about something that is lesser known about Isaac Newton: he wrote more about faith and religion than all other subjects combined. Stokes not only discusses the history of Newton’s life, he also discusses much of the science and concepts behind the science that Newton discovered. Stokes describes the setting of the seventeenth century Church in England and shows that Newton, as well as many others, deviated from their Trinitarian view, showing that deviations from the Trinitarian view were rampant within the English Church. Newton believed in the divinity of Christ and of the Holy Spirit but he did not see them as persons within the Godhead. Newton believed that the scriptural proof texts for the Trinity, 1 John 5:7, and 1 Timothy 3:16, had been altered and that the doctrine of the Trinity was built on a shaky foundation. This book was very interesting and easy to read. Even though it contains lots of scientific concepts, Stokes makes them easy to understand and...

Will the World End in 2012? by Raymond Hundley

Will the World End in 2012? by Raymond Hundley is a well-written Christian evaluation of the top ten theories of the 2012 doomsday movement. Hundley covers the Mayans, solar storms, the Hadron Collider, Nostradamus, reversal of Earth’s magnetic poles, collision with Planet X, galactic alignment, super volcanoes, the Web Bot Project, and religious predictions. Hundley evaluates each theory and gives solid reasons why each theory is good or bad based on solid logical arguments. The book includes a simple study guide for individuals or groups. This is an interesting book. It is easy to read and held my attention through each chapter. The book contains solid information about each theory and lots of references to further your study. I was impressed with the amount of information about each theory. I also enjoyed the evaluations of the theories. Hundley shows what we should not be concerned about, what we should be concerned about and how we should react to those concerns. Hundley includes interviews to substantiate his evaluations. For example, he tells what the Mayans REALLY said, how Mayan descendants have understood those predictions, and further shows why we shouldn’t even be concerned with Mayan predictions in the first place. Even thought this is a Christian perspective, Hundley covers several religious views and treats them all fairly. I highly recommend this book. The information is straightforward and level headed without...
