Book Notices

The Doctrine of Revelation. By Arthur W. Pink. Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1975. 259 pp. $6.95.

The content of this book differs somewhat from what would normally be expected from the title. Originally, the material appeared in serial form in Studies in Scripture, a monthly magazine originated by the author. The work is typical of the style and quality of the author. The book includes four parts: The Existence of God; The Holy Bible; God’s Subjective Revelation; and Revelation in Glory. No footnotes or bibliography appear, but the material is presented in a precise and detailed manner.

Angels: Gods Secret Agents. By Billy Graham. New York: Doubleday & Co., 1975. 175 pp. $4.95.

The well-known evangelist has written a readable and semi-popular treatment of an often neglected area of biblical truth. Fifteen chapters divide the study which touches on the major areas of the doctrine. Except for one chapter—”Lucifer and the Angelic Rebellion”—concentration is on holy angels. The identification of the “sons of God” in Genesis 6 as angelic beings is quickly dismissed as hardly even a live option.

This book already has and will continue to receive wide distribution. Billy Graham’s name on any book jacket makes it popular. Though popularity does not make a book good, this one deserves wide reading. It is a fine contribution to the layman’s understanding of the doctrine of angels.

The Battle for Your Bible. By Raymond H. Saxe. Ann Arbor, MI: Grace Bible Publications, 1975. 132 pp. Paper, n.p.

This study of spiritual experience as related to scriptural teaching primarily deals with the work of the Holy Spirit and the question of

tongues. The author, who is senior pastor of Grace Bible Church, Ann Arbor, Michigan, in short, pithy chapters makes clear that tongues should be interpreted by the Bible rather than the Bible by the experience of tongues. He holds that ultimately the choice has to be between what the Bible teaches and the conclusions drawn from Christian experience. He votes in favor of the Bible as the final authority. Those troubled by the problem of the gifts of the Spirit and the current tongues movement will find much help in this volume.
