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.

Book Review: The Psalms: Structure, Content, and Message

The Psalms: Structure, Content, and MessageThe Psalms: Structure, Content, and Message by Claus Westermann
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Pretty good book. There are some good nuggets scattered through this one. Westermann looks at the Psalms through ten content genres. His notes on structure and content were probably the most useful. At times he’s a little heavy on the canonical criticism and redaction theory.

Book Review: What If I Don’t Desire to Pray?

What If I Don't Desire to Pray? (Church Questions)What If I Don’t Desire to Pray? by John Onwuchekwa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This a practical booklet on prayer. John O doesn’t try to give a theology of prayer but a helpful encouragement to pray, both individually and corporately. He gets to the actual problem—we know how to pray but don’t really want to pray.
