Condensed Book Reviews

I got this idea from Doug Wilson's book log. The idea is to give a review of a book in a few words or less.

"The Kingdom that Turned the World Upside Down" by David Bercot - Has a few good points, but also some rubbish.

"Fables For The Frivolous" by Guy Whitmore Carryl
- Hilarious.

"In the Presence of My Enemies" by Gracia Burnham
- Fascinating

"Easy Chairs, Hard Words: Converstions on the Liberty" of God by Douglas Wilson
- Brilliantly simple defense of Reformed theology

"Opposing Viewpoints Series - Technology and Society" by Auriana Ojeda
- The pinacle of editorial laziness, cut and paste with no interaction

"The Language of God" by Ron Julian
- Creative, but tedious and generally a failure

"Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life by John Calvin"
- Outstanding

"The Dust of Death" by OS Guinness
- Outstanding

"The Winds of December: The Cuban Revolution of 1958" by John Dorschner
- Oustanding and well rounded

"Exploits of Sherlock Holmes" by Adrian Conan Doyle
- Good spinoff

"A Lifetime Of Church" by Tom Speicher
- Rather long, but great!

"Tiananmen Diary: Thirteen Days in June" by Harrison Salisbury
- Short and fascinating

"The Rise, Corruption and Coming Fall of the House of Saud" by Said K. Aburish
- Outstanding

"Secure Architectures with OpenBSD"
- Good not great, title is a bit deceiving

"The Holy War" by John Bunyan
- Outstanding
