Book Review: The Whole Christ by Sinclair Ferguson

wholechristIt’s not often that you come across a book like The Whole Christ by Sinclair Ferguson, it is well-written, of moderate length, winsome, pastoral, and academic all at once. It’s full title is The Whole Christ: Legalism, Antinomianism, and Gospel Assurance– Why the Marrow Controversy Still Matters, quite a mouthful, and quite telling as to what a reader can expect to find inside. It’s a work that promises to be convicting, encouraging, and informative, and anyone familiar with Ferguson’s other titles will know this to be par for course. A title so long may be intimidating to some, and those unfamiliar with the Marrow Controversy may be put-off by this work, but let me assure you of the importance of this book: It’s not often I read a modern work that I know I will read again and again, but The Whole Christ is one of those books.

Mini-Review: This World is Not My Home by Michael Williams

This World Is Not My HomeThis World Is Not My Home by Michael D. Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Outstanding. Thoughtful, well-researched, and fairly irenic given the nature of it. Lots of direct citations from Chafer, Scofield, and Darby while offering sound refutations. Not only does this inform the reader of the teachings of dispensationalism but offers biblical refutations. More importantly, it paints a better picture of the world, the church, redemption, and God Himself than dispensationalism does. This book is sadly out of print but isn’t too hard to locate and very worth the time.
