Zahnd’s Book In The Hands of Reviewers

Brian Zahnd’s book, Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God, has made it into the hands of reviewers. I thought it might be interesting for you, dear readers, to consider their comments in light of Zahnd’s popularity and eloquence.

Dr. David Steele writes:

Dr. Steele

I will never forget a very special evening with a small group of Christ-followers at the McLean home.  My good friend, Don suggested that we read Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God by Jonathan Edwards in one sitting – on our knees.  And so a group of middle-aged adults gathered in Don’s living room alongside several children (whose knees were much more nimble) – and we read Edward’s classic sermon – on our knees.  It is a moment I will not soon forget.  We were humbled.  We were drawn into the very presence of God.  And like the 18th-century congregation in Enfield – we were cut to the quick.

Ph. D. student Derek Rishmawy offers up a long review.  He opens:

Now, normally when I review books, I try to find some positives before moving to critique. So, here’s one: Zahnd is an effective writer and you can tell he’s probably one hell of a preacher. Also, you can tell his main heart is for people to know and trust God. I don’t doubt that for a minute.

You can find Rishmawy’s complete review (available in pdf as well) at his blog, Reformedish.
