Book Review: The Mystery of the Lord’s Supper

The Mystery Of The Lord's Supper (Vintage Puritan)The Mystery Of The Lord’s Supper by Thomas Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Watson is probably my favorite Puritan to read. I’m not a big Puritan fan altogether, and I am especially not a fan of modern Puritan wannabes. His approach is more theological and allegorical than exegetical, which is not unusual for Puritans. He is Christ-centered, devotional, and practical, which is where the book shines.

Book Review: What is the Lord’s Supper?

What Is The Lord's Supper? (Crucial Questions #16)What Is The Lord’s Supper? by R.C. Sproul
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This brief book is a part of the Crucial Questions series. Sproul had such a clear and concise style, this is an easy read. There are some points I am always going to differ with him, but there was a lot of good in this book. He does give quite a bit of space to historical issues surrounding the Lord’s Supper that may be more or less relevant depending on the reader’s background.

Book Review: Understanding the Lord’s Supper

Understanding The Lord's SupperUnderstanding The Lord’s Supper by Bobby Jamieson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a helpful book. Jamieson blends theological and practical considerations in a brief book. I differed in a few points and noticed it was where Jamieson’s points were farthest from any scriptural text. Overall good treatment.

Book Review: The Homiletical Plot: The Sermon as Narrative Art Form

The Homiletical Plot, Expanded Edition: The Sermon as Narrative Art FormThe Homiletical Plot, Expanded Edition: The Sermon as Narrative Art Form by Eugene L. Lowry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall a pretty good book. The concept of narrative sermon has to do with final form for delivery. So, the parts of the book dealing with how to get a sermon idea were the weakest. He doesn’t underplay exposition or theology, but I think the readers might not take them seriously enough. I understand how speaking of the plot of the sermon could be confusing to some, but it needs to be worked through. You going to have to overlook somethings and other things you will need to discern principles and make your own applications. It is a good and helpful read.

Book Review: What Should I Do Now That I’m a Christian?

What Should I Do Now That I'm a Christian? (Church Questions)What Should I Do Now That I’m a Christian? by Sam Emadi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This little book was a really good read. Emadi managed to say a lot in a little space. Some may be surprised to find so much emphasis on the local church in such a short book, but that is exactly what new Christians need to hear. The New Testament has no plan for Christian discipleship outside of the local church.
