Spurgeon and Edwards on Kindle

Normally I prefer real hold-in-my hand books when I read. I like writing notes in the margins, extensively underlining, and I use a lot of sticky notes. I also like flipping back and forth through the pages. That said, I've built a small collection of Kindle books. They have their advantages. Many of the ones I own are for research, rather than pleasure. The great thing is that Kindle is generally cheaper.

If you don't mind Kindle books, there are some excellent bargains available. Some time ago I downloaded Jonathan Edwards' Works (Volume 1 & 2). It is fully searchable and only $1:99.

The Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon Volume 1 (His sermon outlines) is also now available on Kindle for only $1:99.

Reeves on Spurgeon

Really enjoyed this. I suspect Reeves has some Italian in him, given he often speaks with his hands.

Some Miscellaneous Posts: Israel-Church, Rapture Wars, Reformed Eschatology

From Paul Henebury: A Response to Some Questions About Israel & the Church

A lot of my friends, myself included, are tired of the constant jabs against pretribulationism. Yes, there are bad examples from all sides. However, some have made it their mission statement to actively push their systems down people's throats - presumably, in order to save pretribbers from this dangerous demon-doctrine. For example:
If you’re a pastor that’s not preparing his people to face potentially the Antichrist and the Great Tribulation in that hour simply because your denomination teaches it [pretrib], personally I feel like you’re failing in your role as a shepherd and a pastor.” 
I've spoken about this before. More thoughts HERE 

I love reading the Puritans and Reformers. Everyone ought to read them. I just wish they'd stop citing OT verses relating to Israel and applying them to the church. I have this fantasy where some of my favorite modern Reformed preachers rethink their amillennialism and Reform their eschatology

Death to John MacArthur & James White

Death to John MacArthur & James White...oh, and dispensationalism, the pretrib rapture, Zionism, multiple gospels etc, etc. Hat tip James White. Click HERE

PS I still see non-pretribbers linking to Anderson's After the Great Tribulation video without warning people about the man. It kinda reminds me of non-pretribbers who lauded Adventist Steve Wohlberg's End Time Delusions. BTW, my article on Wohlberg by far gets the most hits on my blog. That tells you something.

Jonathan Edwards - Resolutions

I've come across Edwards' resolutions before. It's a new year and I guess this is germane. Even if you're not a great fan of Edwards there's some good reading HERE.
