Exciting Reads

Bob Sorge – Power of the Blood: Approaching God with Confidence

I love the writing of Bob Sorge. He is deeply biblical and has lived through intense suffering by the grace of God. He writes and teaches just as he lives. So far, this book is amazing. We need to be reminded of the greatest realities in the universe, the greatest being the blood of Christ. I’ll post some highlights after I finish the book.

John Piper – Spectacular Sins: And Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ

Any new Piper book is exciting to me. I’ll post some thoughts when I finish.

Sam Storms – To the One Who Conquers: 50 Daily Meditations on the Seven Letters of Revelation 2-3. Sam writes a lot about the joy of following Jesus. Check out his website here. Looking forward to understanding the book of Revelation in a deeper way.

  1. love Sorge. great depth. I am personally not a big Piper fan. He is great on TRUST in God and emphasizing God’s glory.

    Where I struggle is on his view of faith and the potential for healings and miracles now. Some of his views on seem to lean more total fatalism than faith.

    But I agree he is passionate. And sometimes, I think he is Biblical. Since I am not a strong Calvinist, I probably would feel the same way about anyone that leans in that direction.

    Enjoy the books.

  2. I think Piper’s vision for his teaching is to give believers an anchor in the midst of their trials, as well as in catastrophic world events. He’s not against faith, but advocates a strong faith and trust in God’s control. When terror strikes, we need to know how to respond in our relationship with God.

  3. I guess that’s one way to view it. Calvisim rarely produces the kind of faith that produces supernatural results.

    But I don’t want to debate it online. just a word of caution.

  6. Its basicly about two guys who choose to live homeless for 5 months in different cities across the US. Both Christian’s of course who decide to go out and go after God to reach the homeless while also growing in their faith. Its Non-Fiction
