Book Review: The Poverty of the Nations: A Sustainable Solution (by Wayne Grudem and Barry Asmus)

By Dave Talley Dec. 24, 2013 9:00 a.m. Church Life, Culture, Ministry and Leadership

I feel overwhelmed when people refer to a book as a “must read.” If I read all of the “must read” books that have been recommended to me in the past year, I would have to quit my job in order to read each one. So I will not heap one more “must read” on you in this review. However, if you are particularly interested in the issue of poverty, then I do highly recommend that you have this book in your library. I will also provide you with my advice on how you can read it quickly and still glean from its contents.

Hidden Sins, Part One

By Dave Talley Aug. 24, 2012 9:38 a.m. Biblical Exposition, Church Life, Ministry and Leadership, Old Testament

Sin is a reality with which we all must live.  No one can escape the struggles we have with rebelling against God’s call on our lives (cf. Romans 3:10, 23).  However, it is possible to choose whether one will vigorously fight the battle that wages against the flesh or not.  The battle can be overwhelming, but it does not have to result in demoralizing defeat.
