Rev. Dave Ketter reviews this new book by Daniel McGregor. You can buy print copies of Holy Dark Places from Energion Direct. Key quote: On the whole, this is a solid introduction to the exploration of spiritual suffering.

Dr Bob Cornwall posted on Goodreads his review of Dr David Cartwright‘s new book, Wounded by Faith, Healed by Love: As any preacher knows, Jesus’ teachings can be quite challenging. They often call us to consider matters we would rather ignore. They challenge what “common sense” would deem appropriate. The Gospels can be manipulated in all […]
Author Joel Watts offers an insightful review of Dr Robert Cornwall’s book, Worshiping with Charles Darwin on his blogsite, Unsettled Christianity. This is a pastoral account, almost like an autobiography, of bringing forth God’s message out of the two books, Scripture and Nature.

Maybe that’s a good thing. Well, we kind of expect to hear that the TLD volumes are […]

Blogger (and prospective Energion author) Joel Watts lists From Inspiration to Understanding: Reading the Bible Seriously and Faithfully as one of his top 5 books for 2012.

That’s not it’s purpose. In fact, it’s purpose is precisely what he recommends it for: Overall it was a […]
Allan Bevere has posted a review of Bob Cornwall’s book Faith in the Public Square. While he has a number of disagreements, he concludes: And so, while I have my disagreements, I would encourage readers to engage this book. It is thoughtful and thought-provoking.
