Book Notices

My Hearts Desire for Israel. By Richard R. DeRidder. Nutley, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Co., 1974. 126 pp. Paper, $1.95.

Written from the standpoint of Conservative Reformed theology, this volume attempts to relate evangelism and the Jew. The author, while faithful to the necessity of preaching the gospel to the Jew, points out also many of the problems. Although written from the amillennial perspective, all evangelicals will identify with the author’s concern for Israel.

Thats a Good Question! By Roger T. Forster and V. Paul Marston. Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 1971. 160 pp. Paper, $1.45.

The authors of this small volume, one a pastor and counselor, and the other a lecturer in statistical methods and operational research, have attempted to come up with reasonable answers to some of the most difficult and perplexing questions people ask about life.

There are thirty questions in all, dealing with such matters as the historicity of Jesus Christ, miracles, demons, sin, reliability of the Bible, and suffering. Each section is followed by a suggested bibliography for further investigation.

Counsel on the Christians Problems. By Ord L. Morrow. Lincoln, NE: Back to the Bible Broadcast, 1974. 128 pp. Paper, $.60.

Mr. Ord Morrow is well qualified to write on this subject. He has served on the Back to the Bible staff since 1959, and as such has given

spiritual counsel to multitudes of people. This book is a compilation of some of the material found in his monthly column in the Good News Broadcaster.

The subject matter is in a question-and-answer form and covers the general areas of the home, the mind, the Bible, the family, and priorities. This is a handy guide for parents and Christian leaders.

God Listens to the Crying Heart in the Secret Place. By Samuel Chadwick. Westchester, IL: Good News Publishers, 1973. 96 pp. Paper, $.95.

“To pray as God would have us pray is the greatest achievement on earth.” This is one of the many nuggets given in this little volume on prayer. Even a casual reading will reveal that the author writes out of much personal experience in the presence of God. The book is refreshing and convicting. The chapters on “The Word of God and Prayer” and “The Problem of Unanswered Prayer” are especially helpful.
