God, I Don’t Understand. By Kenneth Boa. Wheaton, IL: SP Publications, Victor Books, 1975. 154 pp. Paper, $2.25.
The doctrine of the Trinity, God’s relation to time and space, divine sovereignty vs. human responsibility, the problem of the existence of evil in a universe controlled by a good and all-powerful God—these are only some of the crucial issues examined in this excellent excursion into the antinomies of the Christian faith. Writing out of a background in both science and theology, Boa provides a clear biblical approach to some very difficult problems. This volume should prove to be an excellent text for group discussion and even an apologetic and evangelistic tool. It should be required reading for every Bible college and seminary student and alumnus.

Speaking in Tongues—Seven Crucial Questions. By Joseph C. Dillow. Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1975. 191 pp. Paper, $1.75.
Dillow argues convincingly for the cessation of the gift of tongues. His treatment is thorough and aimed primarily for the student rather than the average tongues-speaking lay person. Doubtless the book will bring confirmation to those who already subscribe to the author’s view. Those who disagree with Dillow on this issue are not likely to change their view, however. They very seldom do. A Scripture and subject index would make a good book even better.

Satan: His Person, Work, Place, and Destiny. By F. C. Jennings. Neptune, NJ: Loizeaux Bros., 1975. 254 pp. Paper, $2.50.
Here is a good and thorough treatment of a timely subject. The work consists of three parts: Satan’s Person, His Work among Men, and His Place and Destiny. Solid exposition of the Scriptures pertinent to the topic pervades the book. In the present age of Satanism and Satan worship, this book is highly recommended.
