The Message of the New Testament: Promises Kept by Mark Dever
Didn’t like this one quite as much as the companion book on the Old Testament, but that may just be because of my comparative unfamiliarity with some of the Old Testament books, which made me absolutely LOVE that one. This one is still a fantastic look at each book in the New Testament, in addition to one overview of the entire New Testament. Definitely recommended.
Prayer, the Great Adventure by David Jeremiah
Enjoyed the structure to this one, as the second and third sections of the book focus on prayer lessons gleaned from Matthew 6 and John 17. Matthew 6 as an organizational framework for a book on prayer is familiar to me, but John 17 isn’t one I’ve seen before, and I really appreciated it.
The Heart of the Bible: Explore the Power of Key Bible Passages by John MacArthur
A great collection of verses, arranged thematically, with commentary by MacArthur following each verse. It would work well as a yearly devotional, as there are 52 verses featured.
A bit uneven, but still worth reading, especially as some of the sections were very good. Overall I preferred his book 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, but either could make a good group study.
Angels: Who They Are and How They Help–What the Bible Reveals by David Jeremiah
An informative look at what the Bible says about angels, vs. what we are exposed to through popular culture, folklore, and other stories. I appreciated the section about what angels do, and why it matters.
