Michael Boling reviews Burning Hearts – Earlier in the week, Michael Boling shared his thoughts on Burning Hearts: Preaching to the Affections by Josh Moody & Robin Weekes. Here’s a bit of what Michael had to say in his review:

“I highly recommend this book for all pastors. Matters of the heart are daily issues for all believers and something that needs to find more attention from the pulpit. Filled with practical and timely advice from a pastors heart and experience, this book will be of great service to those pastors who recognize the need to shepherd their flocks in dealing with sinful desires, why it is important, and how they can grow in this area in their walk with Christ.”

John Crotts reviews Return of the White Book – Author John Crotts shares his thoughts on Rebecca Davis’ recent book Return of the White Book from our Hidden Heroes series. Here’s what he had to say:

The Hidden Heroes series by Rebecca Davis has been consistently excellent. Her books have delighted each member of our family (four children aged 8-18). Each chapter contains a wonderful story, which can be easily read during Family Devotions. In Return of the White Book, readers are inspired to learn of the salvation of many of the Karen people group in Burma. While the more famous missionary Adoniram Judson does make a cameo, these amazing accounts, although beginning at the same time as Judson’s ministry, are about missionaries and converted Karens much less known. Highly recommended.

Danika Cooley reviews John Newton: A Slave Set Free – Last week Danika Cooley continued her series of reviews focused on CF4K’s Trailblazers series. Here’s what she had to say about John Newton: A Slave Set Free by Irene Howat. Here’s a bit of what Danika shared in her review:

“As I read John Newton, I had to wonder what terrible sin in my life people would be shaking their heads over if someone wrote a biography on me. That won’t happen, but I can hazard a few guesses at my pet sins. And how arrogant it would be if I was to regard the sin of slavery as greater than the sin in my own life. These are all discussions we can have with our children. Right after we that, we can feel free to discuss how slavery is abhorrent and disgusting. It’s amazing that a man with a conscience so hardened that he could participate in the brutal harm of innocents would one day contend for their freedom. That, my friends, is grace.”

“Irene Howat’s Robert Moffat: Africa’s Brave Heart (Christian Focus Publications, 2014) is a wonderful story of the life of Robert Moffat and his wife Mary, written for 8-14 year olds. He certainly was brave, facing dangers and challenges that would dissuade most people right away.”

Basil of Caesarea Blog Tour – Last week the Cross Focused Reviewers reviewed Basil of Caesarea: His Life & Impact by Marvin Jones. Here are a few highlights from the tour:

Many of the resources on Basil the Great and the Cappodocian Fathers may not be easily accessible due to archaic language and outdated translations. Marvin Jones cuts through all these barriers by giving us an updated retelling of the story of the life and impact of this man of God, and reminds us once again that if we want to learn, one of the best ways is via history

Rating: 5 Stars

I was stunned to come to know that we (yep, I am throwing you under the bus with me) knew so little about someone who played such a pivotal role at such a crucial point in church history.  But fret you not, this newest volume in the Early Church Fathers Series is set to rectify this massive injustice!  And it does a fine job.
