The CSB Spurgeon Study Bible is an astonishing new Bible. I have the premium goatskin edition, which is simply elegant. The black leather edition has an inscription of the “Prince of Preacher’s” own signature on the front cover. This is a well-made premium Bible. The entire Bible contains study notes from the great Spurgeon. Some of them are photos of his handwritten notes and sermon outlines. The notes are fascinating and the handwritten highlighted parts are beautifully displayed in green... Read more

James L. Papandrea has written a book entitled A Week in the Life of Rome (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2019). Recently, I caught up with James to discuss the book. Enjoy! How long did it take you to write this book? Well, in one sense it took me my whole career, since I think everything I’ve ever studied has prepared me to write this book. My PhD is in the history and theology of the early Church, as well... Read more

Dyann Shepard has released a new book. It’s called Wisdom: Capturing the Power of Our Words. I connected with Dyann at SCRIBE, my training for authors, which is now completely online. Recently, I caught up with Dyann to discuss her new book. Enjoy! This is a study about the relationship of growing in God’s wisdom to the power of our words. How did you find the lives of the women who first went through the study were benefited? We actually... Read more

My long-time friend Stephanie Bennett has released another book. It’s called Silence, Civility, and Sanity. In the past, I interviewed Stephanie on her excellent book Communicating Love. Readers can check out that interview here. See also her VLOG – The Secret Place. Recently, I caught up with Stephanie to discuss her newest book. Enjoy!   The question that every reader wants to know when a new book comes out is “what’s in it for me?” They want to know what... Read more

Gary Burge has written an intriguing piece of narrative exegesis. The book is called A Week in the Life of a Roman Centurion. I caught up with Gary to interview him on the book. Enjoy! How long did it take you to write this book? This project took about a year. But I did not work on it continuously.  As a teaching professor, you have to fit in these projects on the side.  But unlike other texts, it was more... Read more

The CSB Study Bible (Premium Edition) is remarkable. I love premium Bibles and I own many. The goatskin cover on this elegant Bible is among the best. Just touching it, you instantly know you’re handling fine quality. Here are the reasons why I love this Bible. The translation is clear and readable. I liked how the compilers translated many of the texts. While there is no perfect translation, the CSB scores high. The commentary notes are often helpful. I compared... Read more

As a result of the latter, he landed a book deal from a major publisher and just released a new book called Do Nothing: The Simple Principles of Jesus... Read more

James C. Vanderkam has written An Introduction to Early Judaism. I caught up with James recently to discuss his book. Enjoy! What provoked you to write this book? Since the first edition of An Introduction to Early Judaism was published in 2001, my memory of the circumstances in which it arose is somewhat faded.  I do recall that two gentlemen from the Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company suggested I write an introduction to the period, an introduction that would resemble... Read more

The ESV Clarion Reference Bible is an amazing premium Bible. The look and feel of this Bible is remarkable. The goatskin leather cover is top-shelf. The Bible is compact, but not terribly small. It’s short and stout. The pages are durable, the text is elegant, and super easy to read. The Bible opens flat, and the font leaps off the page on the creamy hue paper. The cross-references are placed perfectly in the outer margins. Cambridge does a wonderful job... Read more
