When it comes to literature Marilynne Robinson's words and vision is utterly beautiful. In Essays on Modern Thought, the beauty is there and also a very clear, well thought and critically analysed perspective. Will probably be reading this for a second time soon!


Walking with God through Pain and Suffering
Walking with God through Pain and Suffering

Brilliant book! Most books usually give a theological or philosophical response to the issues of evil and suffering. These books are useful and can have practical responses by the reader, once reflected upon. The best thing about Keller's book is that he does what those books do but more. Its not just an evaluation of the problem of evil from a biblical perspective, but a pastoral and theologically enriched exploration of what to do in light of suffering and how to look at suffering when we experience it. Im very grateful for a lot of Keller's work, but this one is probably my favourite of his so far


God, Freedom and Evil
God, Freedom and Evil
by Alvin Plantinga
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Logical and very interesting, 5 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God, Freedom and Evil (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book, i felt beyond the topic it was a very good primer on how to think philosophically. The concept is very good using the free will defence but extending to counter other arguments. I did feel that this dealt with human evil very well, but i believe more could have been done on natural evil


The Disabled God: Toward a Liberatory Theology of Disability
The Disabled God: Toward a Liberatory Theology of Disability
by Nancy L. Eiesland
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Very empowering book, 5 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The overall thesis of the Disabled God was very radical and very well thought out. I believe it would empower those with disability to see it in light of Christ's scars in his resurrection that in their disability. I did not like her chapter on the bible, i feel that a number of books inspired by hers provide a clear view of the text itself and battle the ableist interpretation of scripture. I would recommend Amos Yong's book that i reviewed for this issue

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not recommend this book enough, 5 Oct. 2013

For a very academic theological book, it was also very empowering. I loved reading it I felt it was brought a very good argument for the suffering of God.

This review is from: Life Of Pi (Kindle Edition)
As a book this is fantastic narrative with some very deep insights. Would not recommend its understanding of religion. But the point of the book is the story and that story is lovely. My only critique would be that i did feel it dragged at times, but i would definately read it again

This is a great introduction to Keller's amazing story. I loved reading and she writes as if she could see and hear. Its a testament to her intellect and perseverance and also to that of her teacher.

This review is from: Life Together (Paperback)
Bonhoeffer is a fantastic read, no matter which book you read. But this book is special. I think he provides a very good vision of the church, in a realistic manner and theologically clear way

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 5 Oct. 2013

I think this is a section from one of his other books (The Case for christ) but i read it over Christmas and it really was great to read about the evidence for the christmas narrative in the gospels. This is a great book, i think the only negative bit is you may be able to get this within your copy of the aforementioned book.

Lee strobel is a fantastic and very well informed author, who goes to interview the experts on the subject. This book gives evidence to his reading of critics of Christian faith and he puts these people's critiques to the experts. So its useful for reading about the evidence but also for helping respond to certain criticisms
