The Liberation of Planet Earth. By Hal Lindsey. Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1974. 236 pp. $5.95.

Here is good theology in a neat package. The well-known author has handled most of the facets of the doctrine of salvation in an appealing and popular way, yet without sacrificing doctrinal keenness. The book also contains a brief autobiography, some excellent illustrations of biblical truth, and the popular but deficient trichotomy view.

The title is somewhat off target, since it is chiefly about the liberation of people on planet earth.

Discover Your Spiritual Gift and Use It. By Rick Yohn. Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 1974. 154 pp. Paper, $1.95.

Pastor Rick Yohn has done a great service to the body of Christ in writing this practical how-to-do-it book on spiritual gifts. He gives many illustrations of believers using their gifts. His practical suggestions on how to discover and use gifts are ones that even the newest babe in Christ can follow.

However, not everyone will agree with his position on the gifts of tongues and healing. While it is a short book, the usefulness would have been enhanced with either a detailed table of contents or a subject index. For example, he presents the gift of craftsmanship on page 19, but since there is no listing of it in the table of contents and no index one could miss this interesting gift by scanning the book.

The Truth: God or Evolution? By Marshall Hall and Sandra Hall. Nutley, NJ: Craig Press, 1974. 186 pp. Paper, $2.95.

One of the finest, concise treatments of the gross inadequacies of evolution, this book presents the facts with great force and out of the authors’ backgrounds of once having believed in evolution. The book is highly recommended for high school and college youth, and adults.

Judges and a Permissive Society. By John E. Hunter. Grand Rapids:Zondervan Publishing House, 1975. 127 pp. Paper, $1.50.

The author states, “The book of Judges is the study of a permissive society.” The reader will find in this book sermonic treatment of parallels between that society and ours and helpful character studies of the judges.
