DA Carson brings his technical expertise to a lay level by offering a short and readable book
When I first became a Christian the primary way that I learned to pray was by praying the prayers in Scripture. Sometimes I prayed them word-for-word, but often I would take texts as launching points and then move on to pray in my own words according to the structure, content, and principle illuminated in them. Though I later made two Christian friends who prayed amazingly eloquent and Spirit-filled (not pretentious) prayers, in my earl...

It’s sad that Luther and Zwingli couldn’t acknowledge their common ground in Christ
Whenever I’m offered one of these Bitesize Biographies I jump at the opportunity. They are light reading but enjoyable. I find them a restful interlude between reading thicker books. All of that doesn’t mean they are not quality reading though. I’ve been out of seminary many years, so they help dust the cobwebs off my church figures and history. William Boekestein’s Zwingli biography hit all the notes for why I enjoy this series. Z...

What do theologian DA Carson and cartoonist Adam Ford have in common?

Zwingli is often forgotten in the shadows of Calvin and Luther, but he’s worth learning from

Introduction
Mission

Grace for Sinners exists to make much of God through the power of the Holy Spirit by heralding the reign of King Jesus for the glory of the Father and the joy of all peoples.

What Can You Expect?

We offer bi-weekly articles mainly through the lens of biblical theology as the unfolding story of the gospel in the person and work of Jesus Christ intersecting the gospel with everyday life. On the weekends, the review staff (below) recommends books on a variety of subjects in hopes of saving you time and money by pointing you to the best resources available.

Meet the Review Staff

We have fun talking books, theology, and poking fun at our differences. Having a team allows us to highlight a variety of books, while still outputting high quality reviews.

Mathew B. Sims is the author of A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes and a contributor in Make, Mature, Multiply (GCD Books). He completed over forty hours of seminary work at Geneva Reformed Seminary. He also works as the managing editor at Gospel-Centered Discipleship and the assistant editor at CBMW Manual. He regularly writes for a variety of publications. Mathew offers freelance editing and book formatting.

He’s married to LeAnn Sims who blogs at The Modest Homestead and is a creative force in design and event planning. They have three daughters—Claire, Maddy, and Adele—who are joyful, mischievous, and full of wonder (he’s outnumbered if you’re counting). They enjoy having fun—romping in the woods, swimming, singing, reading, and traveling. When the rabble-rousers are asleep, he enjoys watching a good movie with his wife. He loves reading, the outdoors, and cooking good food. He hydrates daily with coffee. And he’s a prodigal Apple geek.

Joshua Torrey is a New Mexico boy in an Austin, TX world. He is husband to Alaina and father to Kenzie & Judah and spends his free time studying for the edification of his household. These studies include the intricacies of hockey, football, curling, beer, and theology. You can follow him @AustinPreterism and read his theological musings and running commentary of the Scriptures at The Torrey Gazette.

Jennifer Guo counts beans by day and eats books by night. She is passionate about the gospel and loves biblical and theological studies. She also loves the arts and is part of a performing arts ministry that uses a variety of mediums to communicate the gospel, God’s heart, and His design for sexuality, relationships, and marriage. Jennifer also loves running and cooking (and not because running allows her to eat more). You can follow her @JenniferGuo and read more of her thoughts at Jennifer Guo.
