A much needed post. Over the past few years I have really found reading the writings of these men to be extremely eye opening and edifying. I think the most attractive thing about their writing is that it is not dry and dull. They write with passion and they right well. They make studying Scripture a pleasant experience. They also write boldly (for good or for worse). This is attractive in a reformed church culture that regular puts out dry, weak, and often just as questionable milk.
I also noticed the way in which typology is, as Pastor Toby notes, done for the sake of entertainment. Typology for typology’s sake. This along with the odd conclusions that are often arrived at - denying perseverance, the regeneration of our natures, etc. makes me slow to recommend their writings.
Are there any other authors/books that anyone on the board can recommend that make the Bible a joy to study but aren’t filled with leaps and bounds of questionable conclusions?
