Queen Victoria’s Request

Queen Victoria’s Request: A Story of Grace and Mercy, By Charles Haddon Spurgeon Illustrated by Jeff Anderson (Christian Focus, 2008), hb., 24 pp. Ages 3-6 This is a nicely illustrated, engaging story that illustrates the gospel well. Spurgeon in his characteristic way tells a down to earth story of an “old ragged, dirty beggar” who […]

Teach Children the Gospel

I have just read on Tom Ascol’s blog about a publisher of children’s Sunday School curriculum who decided that the cross is too violent for pre-schoolers and as a result they would skip the cross and resurrection in their Easter curriculum! You can see a letter of explanation and defense of their position here. This […]

As I noted in the review, one of the best parts of the sketch is when Dennison addresses Vos’ dissatisfaction with cultural conservativism masquerading as Christianity. The last portion of the second quote is particularly […]

The Letters of Geerhardus Vos, A Review

Letters of Geerhardus Vos , ed. James T. Dennison (P&R Publishing, 2005), hb., 274 pp. This is an interesting book. Before reading it I knew of Vos as a key figure in the development of biblical theology, but I knew little else. I was drawn to the book precisely because I knew little about him, […]
