Book Review – Knowing God

KNOWING GOD by J.I PACKER
Review by Timothy Denning
This books speaks of the importance of really knowing The Lord  and outlines several different aspects of this.
Through his word; God is understood in terms of what the Bible tells us. Always it is stressed that the claim of the word of God upon us is absolute, the word is to be received, trusted, and obeyed, because it is the word of God the king.
Other aspects include The Grace of God, God  the Judge, The wrath of God and several other characters and aspects of God.
The author says we can never know enough about God this book really helps and sets you on the path way were you want to read the word more and more and ask the Lord to reveal himself to you.

Book Review – Sovereignty of God

SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD by AW PINK 
 
The author asks who is regulating affairs on earth today-God, or the Devil? He then lays out the glorious gospel truths by explaining Gods sovereignty defined, God in creation, in administration, salvation, reprobation, operation, human will, human responsibility, sovereignty and prayer, our attitude towards the doctrine, difficulties and objections, the value of the doctrine.
In summary after reading this great book we can rejoice in the Lord’s sovereign will and purpose in our lives, and this should breed great peace and assurance of God’s presence in our lives.
Also, if you buy one of the latest editions you will also can read the will of God, the case of Adam, John 3 v 16 meaning of Kosmos, and a brief exposition of 1 John 2 v 2.
