Book Review: Labor with Hope (Gloria Furman)

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

I am so excited about this book. There are so many books on how to mother, how to parent, how to grandparent. But when it came to pregnancy I couldn't find a book that would prepare me and help me spiritually with all the emotions and questions that would come alongside pregnancy and childbirth.

Book Review: Redemptive Reversal and the Ironic Overturning of Human Wisdom (G. K. Beale)

Posted by Andrew Deligiorgakis on

Book Review by Mark Powell Mark Powell is associate pastor at Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, Sydney. Biblical Theology has been one of the great re-discoveries with the reformed-evangelical church in the past one-hundred years.

Book Review: Sufficient Hope (Christina Fox)

Posted by Andrew Deligiorgakis on

Book review by Samantha Balmforth In today’s social media age, mothers are infiltrated with the message that ‘we are enough’. We are told through blogs, memes and inspirational Instagram posts that all we need to do is try our best, and that will do, or that as long as we focus on self-care and filling our own cups, then we can give what we need to our children afterwards. However, one only needs to have been a mother for more than a few months, or even weeks, to know that none of that is true. We are sinful women, with...
