This week’s highlights are below:
Judy Dabler reviews God Redeeming His Bride for the Biblical Counseling Coalition - Judy Dabler has a great review of Robert Cheong's book God Redeeming His Bride: A Handbook for Church Discipline over at the Biblical Counseling Coalition website. Here's a bit of what Judy had to say in her review:
"I highly recommend God Redeeming His Bride to pastors, elders, and other church leaders regardless of the type of polity adhered to by the church. I especially recommend this book to church leaders who do not wish to re-invent the wheel when facing a discipline need. Robert provides sample letters and manuscripts ready for editing and use that are reminiscent of a gospel-rich rendition of a Book of Church Order. I believe that this text should be mandatory for the seminary curriculum since church discipline gone bad frequently contributes to church leaders exiting active gospel-ministry."

Reviewers are starting to weigh in on Piper's Five Points - This week we were excited to bring you John Piper's new book Five Points: Towards a Deeper Experience of God's Grace. Here are a few thoughts expressed by some of the early reviewers:
"Overall, this is an excellent little primer which, even for this paid up choir member, stirred my heart and made me thankful for the sovereign action of God in saving me. Worth reading for yourself and worth recommending to your congregation."
"Five Points is the kind of book I want to give to the person who struggles with the idea of Calvinism. It’s readable, challenging, thoughtful, and, most importantly, faithful to God’s Word."
"Five Points is a book for those who question the validity of TULIP and their Scriptural warrant. This book is also good for those in Bible College and seminary wrestling with the doctrines of grace for the first time. Whether you are new to this issue or a seasoned veteran to these matters, Piper’s book has something for you. I recommend you pick up Five Points: Towards a Deeper Experience of God’s Grace for in doing so, you will encounter the truth “salvation is of the Lord” (Jonah 2:9), a truth found throughout the pages of Scripture."
