What I’m Reading – 8/21/14

Below are some of the articles and books I’ve read recently that you may enjoy perusing.

  • The Baptist Story: From English Sect to Global Movement, by Anthony Chute, Nathan Finn, and Michael Haykin — Here at last is an interesting, accessible, and careful textbook on Baptist History! The authors all come from a strongly evangelical point of view, even as they recognize the diversity inherent in the Baptist movement. If you’ve every wanted to know where Baptists come from and what they’ve been through, this is unquestionably the place to start.
  • The Original Jesus: Trading the Myths We Create for the Savior Who Is, by Daniel Darling — I had the privilege to read a pre-pub copy of this wonderful work by Daniel Darling. As I said in my endorsement, this book will make some people mad. But hopefully God will use that to expose some areas of our lives that need to be transformed and changed by his penetrating Word.
