"Why Believe the Bible?" by John MacArthur

posted Jul 3, 2020, 11:34 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Why Believe the Bible?Here is a thorough yet easy-to-read and absorb defense of the credibility of Scripture. Also includes sections on how to study, read, and apply the Word. Excellent introductory book to these topics.    

"The Church in Babylon: Heeding the Call to Be A Light in the Darkness" by Erwin W. Lutzer

posted Jun 18, 2020, 1:56 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Church in Babylon: Heeding the Call to Be a Light in the DarknessThis is a compelling book in which Lutzer first documents the flip-flop of American society in recent years from tolerant of and even favorably inclined toward Christians, to a position of opposition and even hostility toward evangelicals. This is our new reality. It is no longer a matter of what we do to avoid arriving in “Babylon”; it is now a question of how we live as believers in Babylon. Subjects covered include everything from sexuality and gender issues, hostility at work, the subtle danger of technology, the threat of Islam and many others. Lutzer is wonderful in that he identifies issues clearly and honestly, yet challenges us to see God’s hand in everything and to see opportunity for the gospel. What could be a negative diatribe is, instead, a comforting challenge to faithfulness. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

"Redemption Accomplished and Applied" by John Murray

posted Jun 13, 2020, 10:05 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Redemption Accomplished and AppliedThis is a classic book on the subject of redemption and all contribution doctrines, such as atonement, calling, adoption, faith, repentance, regeneration and others. This is a theological book written in an older style, but easily understood by the average person, thorough, biblical and worth the little extra work it takes. 

"The Discipline of Grace" by Jerry Bridges

posted Jun 5, 2020, 11:10 AM by Fccea Webmaster   [ updated Jun 8, 2020, 10:38 AM ]

The Discipline of Grace: God's Role and Our Role in the Pursuit of HolinessThis is a fine book for differentiating exactly what the subtitle suggests, that is, God’s role and my role in pursuing holiness. Is it just “let go and let God”?  If not, how much is my responsibility? Bridges does an outstanding job of showing how it is all God – and yet, the responsibility to take initiative and practice the disciplines of Godly living is mine – never out of a sense of somehow ingratiating myself to God, but out of a love for God who has already ingratiated Himself to me and me to Him. Bridges strikes a wonderful, biblical balance on this often hard-to-grasp concept.   

"Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions" by Gregory Koukl

posted May 29, 2020, 6:16 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Tactics, 10th Anniversary Edition: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian ConvictionsThis is the best book, by far, that I’ve ever read on how to engage calmly, respectfully, and convincingly with those who question your Christian convictions – whether it’s a family member, neighbor, friend or a more sophisticated opponent. Theologian and radio talk show host, Koukl will show you how, through the use of carefully crafted questions, to draw out the other person, keep control of the conversation, point out the flaws to common objections and at least “plant a stone in someone’s shoe” – give them something to think about after the fact. Good for anyone, including college students because the book is replete with examples. Seeing how Koukl deals with many objections will strength one’s own faith. 

"Why Trust the Bible?" by Greg Gilbert

posted May 7, 2020, 4:09 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Why Trust the Bible? (9Marks) by [Greg Gilbert]This is an excellent little book detailing the various issues surrounding reliability of the Bible (historicity, transmission, variant readings, content, etc.). Gilbert builds a compelling case for the reliability of Scripture which will reinforce the faith of believers, and challenge unbelievers to consider what they are missing. Written in very understandable language. 

"The Gospel Comes with a House Key" by Rosaria Butterfield

posted Apr 16, 2020, 1:22 PM by Fccea Webmaster   [ updated Apr 17, 2020, 3:08 PM ]

The Gospel Comes With A House Key - A Critical Review: Unveiling Its Postmodern Philosophy and Feminist TheologyThis is the finest and most challenging book I’ve read in a long time. It is about hospitality, but in the broadest sense of that definition. It is about being available to the Lord in any and every situation and to people of all kinds. It will help you immensely see how you can relate to people who differ radically from your beliefs, and yet without compromise. It will show you how to love others rather than saying to love others. If I could afford to get a copy to everyone in our church, I would do so. Find a copy on Amazon.  

"Who Are You to Judge?: Learning to Distinguish Between Truths, Half-Truths, and Lies" by Erwin W. Lutzer

posted Apr 16, 2020, 1:18 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Who Are You to Judge?: Learning to Distinguish Between Truths, Half-Truths, and LiesOnce again Lutzer has produced a biblically sound and challenging book. This one emphasizes the need for believers to exercise biblical discernment in many areas including morality, doctrine, spiritism, social media, outward appearances and many others. If you wonder when it might be right to exercise Godly judgment, this book will be of great help. 

"Affirming God's Image: Addressing the Transgender Question with Science and Scripture" by J. Alan Branch.

posted Mar 28, 2020, 9:04 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Affirming God's Image: Addressing the Transgender Question with Science and ScriptureThis book is particularly good on the science and genetics of gender dysphoria. It is graphic in nature, but compassionate, biblical, thorough and informative. Includes excellent information on how to deal with issues of transgenderism in various contexts. 

"God and the Transgender Debate" by Andrew T. Walker and R. Albert Mohler

posted Mar 9, 2020, 10:51 AM by Fccea Webmaster

God and the Transgender DebateThis book gives an excellent overview of the current controversy over gender identity. How did we get where we are? What does the Bible say? What does modern science say? How should we react to individuals as well as to the culture at large? A thoroughly compassionate, yet truthful presentation.
