(Series Introduction) One question I often get as a pastor relates to books. What should I read on subject A? Do you have a good resource on topic B? What do you think about author C’s new release? And honestly, I love those questions. I do love to read. And I also love helping to direct others towards helpful resources. But with the seemingly bottomless sea of books and resources that are out there, how is a Christian supposed to discern what is helpful and what is a waste of their often limited resources of time and money?
In this series of posts, I will attempt to highlight some of the books that I have recently found to be beneficial in my own Christian walk, along with a book review from one of a handful of sources. One of these book review sources is from pastor, author and blogger Tim Challies. Tim has a great number of book reviews on his site and is often one of my “go to” reference points.
This week’s book review is on “The Good News We Almost Forgot: Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism” by pastor and Gospel Coalition member Kevin DeYoung.
