A day late, but better late than never. We don't have anything against Tuesdays, honest.

Ian Clary is back in the saddle with a review of John Frame's contribution to the 'Worship Wars' discussion, Worship in Spirit and Truth, which Ian describes as a book that "has done much to 'bring us back to the heart of worship.' "

We regret to inform you that today's usual book review bulletin will not be published until tomorrow, Wednesday. In its stead, the (remaining) Discerning Reader editing team and reviewing staff are asking you to please consider observing a moment of silence and prayer to remember our Founding Editor, Tim Challies.

This week we have a full slate of six new reviews for you.

Amongst the reviews, which cover a variety of topics from six different publishers, are two heavy-hitters in Guard Us, Guide Us by J.I. Packer and Walking With God by John Eldredge. Both books take on the subject of guidance in the Christian life, but only one of them does the subject biblical justice.

It's a four-review kind of week.

I wrote a review of Get Married by Candice Watters, a book that encourages women to (you guessed it!) get married. "Watters offers biblical wisdom and hard-won experience to encourage women to live like they wish to marry. She shows that marriage is a good and worthy goal and one that may not be too far off. The book will be a challenge and encouragement to any woman who desires to get married."

Tuesday has once more rolled around and this week we have six (count 'em, six!) new reviews for you to enjoy.

From Mark Tubbs comes a review of Stephen Nichols' short book, Jonathan Edwards' Resolutions and Advice to Young Converts (and let me tell you, just keeping up with the volume of books written by Stephen Nichols is nearly a full-time job).

We have three new reviews for you this week.

Mark Tubbs reviewed one of John Piper's more unique efforts, The Misery of Job and the Mercy of God. It is a long, theological poem accompanied by beautiful photographs. Mark says, "More than simply a retelling of the story of Job, this piece of art impresses the wideness of God's mercy and the extent of God's sovereignty on the twenty-first century psyche."

Tuesdays are always all about the reviews. This week we have just two, but they are reviews of good books.

From Mark Tubbs comes a review of Rethinking Worldview by J. Mark Bertrand. Also be sure to take a look at an interview with the author.

We have just two reviews for you today. I'm not quite sure how this happened! We'll try to do a bit better next week!

From Mark Tubbs comes a review of Most of All, Jesus Loves You, a book for children written by Noel Piper. Mark says, "this little book of 16 pages and far less than 100 words has accomplished what it set out to do." Meanwhile, I've supplied a review of John Adams, the great biography by David McCullough.
