Books I Have Read: The Church on Mission

It is one thing to believe that all people should be reached with the gospel. It is quite another thing to truly embrace a diversity in one’s own local church: from a review of a fascinating book.

Books I Have Read: Seeking Reconciliation

“Christianity is the only religion in history to have both a universal message and a multicultural expression and membership.”

A short review of a short, but excellent, book.

Books I Have Read: The Godless Delusion

This book provides an interesting trip through aspects of anthropology, linguistics and intercultural dialogue. In doing so, it provides a new way of looking at issues such as dependency, short-term mission and the reality of the supernatural.

Books I Have Read: Dominion

I may read a better book this year, but with only three months left, it seems highly unlikely unless something really good crosses my desk. Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind is readable, interesting, highly informative and it is important; whoever you are, you should read it.

Books I Have Read: Asian Christian Theology

How do I connect with the popular people? How do I fit in? Will my contributions be valued? Conversations feel like hard work and at times even painful without the ease of shared histories and friendships.

Books I Have Read: Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes

Reading Romans through an Eastern lens thus restores a more Pauline perspective by bringing together the false Western dichotomy between “spiritual” and “secular.” We need not accept the false dilemma between evangelism and social ministry.

Justification and Group Identity

Some excellent and controversial thoughts from a very good book.
