Noah: Man of Destiny Review

I recently finished reading Noah: Man of Destiny by Tim Chaffey & K. Marie Adams.  Since the Bible doesn’t say much about Noah before he started building the Ark the writers have speculated about what his life would have been like. This is Book 1 of The Remnant Trilogy and covers about 8 years of his early life. It starts with him living with his parents and working on their farm but dreaming of a chance to apprentice as a wooodworker. He gets his chance at his coming of age party but not the way he expected. Instead of working with...

Saving the Bible from Ourselves – Review

In his book Saving the Bible from Ourselves, from IVP Books, Glenn R. Paauw discusses the problems with our Bibles. He makes a strong case that the design of our Bibles actually hurt our understanding and comprehension and keep us from doing the number one thing we should be doing with the Bible- reading it. Paauw raises two questions: 1, what is the Bible? 2, what are we supposed to do with it?

How I changed my mind about Evolution Review

How I changed my about Evolution: Evangelicals Reflect on Faith and Science is a collection of stories about people who embrace both evolution and faith in God and the Bible. In 25 “minimemoirs” it tries to help you understand how people could reconcile the two views. The book is well written. They have done a good job of representing different starting points and varying occupations that would find this topic a major concern. They have writers that start by believing in both (with an unclear idea of how), either,  and even (because they hadn’t given it much thought) neither....
