Reviews of Christian Books

Saturday, October 27th, 2007

Another blog I have on Google Reader is entitled The Reformed Reader. The author of the blog, Shane Lems, posted a short quote from R.C. Sproul’s new book, The Truth of the Cross. I found the quote to be spot-on, so am posting it here as well:

“The prevailing doctrine of justification today is not justification by faith alone. It’s not even justification by good works or by a combination of faith and works. The prevailing notion of justification in Western culture today is justification by death. It’s assumed that all one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die” (R.C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross [Orlando: Reformation Trust, 2007], 10).

Have you ever heard of a lap book?

One of my favorite home school bloggers has done a “show and tell” of a Thanksgiving lap book that she and her young daughter created together. The result was a beautiful keepsake. Additionally, each time the child looks through the book, learning is reinforced. Wow!

Whether or not you home school your children, you will want to make some of these books!
