Straight Thinking about God. By Ord L. Morrow. Lincoln, NE: Back to the Bible, 1976. 92 pp. Paper, $.75.

The associate radio minister of the Back to the Bible Broadcast has given much food for thought in this little volume. Its message is aimed to reach the saved and the unsaved. The author’s proposition is that so few come to salvation in Christ because of wrong concepts about God, sin, Christ, and other important matters. The work is written interestingly and will be of special help for the “almost persuaded” and young Christians.

The Bible Has the Answer. By Henry M. Morris and Martin Clark. San Diego, CA: Creation-Life Publishers, 1976. 380 pp. Paper, $4.95.

Martin Clark, director of Counseling Services at Cedarville College, worked with Henry Morris in producing this revised and expanded edition of Morris’ earlier work of the same title and published bv Craig Press. This new edition has all the material which was in the first one (one hundred questions and answers) plus an additional fifty questions and answers dealing with science and the Christian life.

The material is well organized. Subject and Scripture indexes make the book easy to use. The questions presented are the ones being asked and the answers, as the title of the book indicates, are from the Bible. Every Christian worker needs to have this timely tool in his library. As a veritable gold mine of helpful information, it is highly recommended.

Great Church Fights: What the Bible Says about Controversy and How to Resolve It. By Leslie B. Flynn. Wheaton, IL: SP Publications, Victor Books, 1976. 118 pp. Paper, $1.95.

Leslie B. Flynn has served in the pastorate since 1949 and this practical experience keeps him from unbounded idealism in this study. In the Foreword the author states the limitations, purpose, and approach

of the book: “This book does not evaluate all causes of church strife nor catalog all known remedies. It surveys ten significant New Testament episodes of strife and the measures taken to resolve them, in the hope that biblical insights and principles will help 20th century churches turn their internal skirmishes into training grounds for victory.”

Easy to read and filled with helpful illustrations, the book fills a need in practical areas of ecclesiology.
