    A Book I Heartily Recommend

    A new book has been released from Inkwater Press:

    https://www.inkwaterbooks.com/produc...e3c25a7ff16257

    It is written by a close D.Th. friend of mine of over 21 years.

    Ed has been a major catalyst in driving me to reason scripture ever since we met. We have the same perspective on almost everything. However, while Ed and I may not always agree on every fine point of interpretation, if you want a real different perspective on theology worth considering this is it!

    Hi Bob,
    I clicked on the link and got a certificate error warning me not to give the site any personal info (kinda hard to order stuff on the credit card when that happens). The book looks really interesting though--btw--how about "The Bookworm Magazine" also?

    I'm not sure what is going on with that; I can only suggest that you order it by mail with a check. Great book though!

    The phone# for Inkwater Books is 503-968-6777 to find out the cost of shipping and handling.

    More than likely the security certificate error will disappear after the weekend once someone is made aware and fixes it. I sent them an e-mail regarding it.

    If you want the Book Worm send me a PM.

    Re: A Book I Heartily Recommend

    Finally, a useful book that will tell me how to get drunk.

    My difficulties are with Christendumb, Evanjellidum, Baptists, and cults.
    I'm not a big fan of Baptist theology or cults either. But defintions are required to determine if I am opposed to Christendumb and Evanjellidum. Of course I'm opposed to the words as they stand but I don't know of anyone who supports Christendumb.

    Many support Christendom but not Christendumb. If Christendom is the community of all Christians what Christian in their right mind would be opposed to it? If it is referring to countries in which most people are Christians, perhaps it could be argued that most the people in the countries are not in fact Christians but why be opposed to the idea of Christiandom because of that? If it is referring to some sort of theocracy then you move into a realm which can legitimately be debated but why not just be clearer and say you have a problem with theocracy? Even theocracy is a little muddy depending upon how the person is using it. I certainly would not oppose my leaders being guided by Scripture.

    Nobody supports evangelidum either but many support evangelicalism and mean a whole lot of different things by it. If being an evangelical means that you focus on the Gospel--meaning Jesus Christ and Him crucified then that's a wonderful thing. If it means you focus on altar calls and other man-made inventions then that is a bad thing.
    For whatever strength of arm he may have who swims in the open sea, yet in time he is carried away and sunk, mastered by the greatness of its waves. Need then there is that we be in the ship, that is, that we be carried in the wood, that we may be able to cross this sea. Now this Wood in which our weakness is carried is the Cross of the Lord, by which we are signed, and delivered from the dangerous tempests of this world.--St. Augustine

    Their security certificate expired thursday Feb 7th. My guess is they got busy and forgot to renew it last week. If it had been this way for a while I might question it. As it is right now, I wouldn't be concerned as to the security for an online purchase for this book.

    Yup. Don't buy it for that reason, you'll be sorely disappointed you spent the money!

    Dr. Vrell agrees with me on most things so that should give you an idea of what you are in for if you order the book.

    Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, BUT The Father's Who sent Me.

    Words are not always defined on this forum, so should I assume that they are not defined in this book as well? Another problem I foresee in the book which I have not seen is the following:

    chapter title: I HATE Philosophy
    Book description:
    Nothing is new! I was taught all this in my 7 theological schools and many seminars. I just kept the good stuff and got rid of the chaff, I Thess. 5:21. I had to learn what the Bible stated instead of what the philosopher-theologians babbled, Col. 2:8.
    Choose your subject from the Table of Contents. Many essays and studies come from my monthly magazine “The Book Worm.” There are many similar and repetitive ideas.
    I have no problems with Jesus and the Holy Bible. My difficulties are with Christendumb, Evanjellidum, Baptists, and cults. I trust these articles will help you think correctly on Scripture and that the Holy Spirit will open your ears, eyes, minds, and hearts, Luke 24:44-45.
    My biggest problems with books by people such as Rob Bell or Brian McLaren is that they really aren't about anything other than Rob Bell or Brian McLaren. I assume from the description that this is really a book about Vrell in which case it should be considered an autobiography rather than a theological book.
    For whatever strength of arm he may have who swims in the open sea, yet in time he is carried away and sunk, mastered by the greatness of its waves.

    Well, then you would be wrong, you know what the say about assumptions!! You get the drift I am sure! By all means, don't order it!

    I have been reading his monthly magazine for a time and listening to his tapes...oh yes, there is a little assembly in Longmont that he is a part of. He certainly has a different approach in his ways but actually for me is a breath of fresh air.

    So no, the book isn't about him, it is about what the Holy Spirit has taught him from the Scriptures.

    eilene says

    So no, the book isn't about him, it is about what the Holy Spirit has taught him from the Scriptures.

    Eileen~
    Thanks for the distinction eilene I was about to think that God did not use men anymore to shine forth his truth..Its not the man we want to read about but how God may have used this particular vessel to convey truth to His elect. God the Holy Spirit will guide His people into the truth of the material..

    1 thess 5:

    20Despise not prophesyings.

    21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    My experience has been god has used many men down through the centuries to convey truth..some men not even converted..like balaam maybe..

    num 23:

    5And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak.

    19God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?


    20Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. 21He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.

    And so God in His sovereignty can and will continue to use men sanctified and unsanctified for the sake of his elect..

    Happy reading if you buy the book I will try to purchase soon..

    Yeah, I got spoiled with roadrunner broadband before I moved back out to the country. Funny, I don't remember it being this slow back up in Northern Michigan--and I had Verizon up there too....
