Review of Biblical Portraits of Creation: Celebrating the Maker of Heaven and Earth

Standard

God’s creation are marvelous and points us back to his wisdom and awesomeness. Evolution or Creation? This is a well researched book packed with important biblical insights from all 66 books of the Bible. I recommend you use the group study questions at the back of each chapter in your small groups!

Review on How Can I Be Sure? by John Stevens

Standard
The organisation and depth of the book is like one from a weekly Christian magazine. I had expected more biblical principles and bible verses from the author to back up his arguments but this book seems more like a long article written using simplistic human persuasion, logic and arguments, not one that I expected to be filled with biblical insights.

However, I did like one illustration the author brought up: Being a Christian is like being engaged to someon, and before the wedding you might still have doubts about the person you would be marrying. You can be a Christian and yet still have doubts about God, but as long as you work through these doubts and issues and decide to “commit to the marriage”, you do not become”unbelieving”. You don’t cease being a Christian just because of doubts until you deny that you want to be with Jesus.

Still a worthwhile read and a good place to start if you have doubts, but the book points you to other resources for more specific help, so don’t expect it to be too deep.
