Book – The Lost Message of Paul – Steve Chalke I have just finished a review copy of this book. I will be writing an article and a fuller review later on. Suffice it to say that if I had any hope that Steve Chalke would reverse his turning away from Christianity – they have been dashed.

Book – Pensees – Pascal – 9/10 What can one say about this classic book? This is so good I am tempted to learn French just to read the author in his original language!

It’s so weird and quirky – a series about a history teacher in Ukraine who becomes President. It’s in Russian with subtitles. And it’s brilliant.

Book – Can We Trust the Gospels? – 7/10 This is a much-needed book from Peter J Williams, the principal of Tyndale House. It is short (140 ages) and somewhat detailed and technical for some. However … Continue reading Saturday Review 10 – Can We Trust the Gospels?

This week we range all over the world and a variety of subjects; We begin with an extraordinary claim that Israel was responsible for the New Zealand Mosque shootings.

We mention Peterson and Cambridge – Letter … Continue reading Quantum 35 – Israel and the NZ Mosque; Islamaphobia and Jordan Peterson; The Church in China; Chinese AI; The Mueller Inquiry and Jesse Smollett; The EU and the Internet; The Dutch and the Elderly; Transgender Beer; Scott Walker; Ricky Gervais; and more….

If yours doesn’t then buy it for him. Sinclair begins … Continue reading Saturday Review 9 – Some Pastors and Teachers; Leaving Neverland; The Briefing; The Dark Side of the Moon; Ting Saboteur
