Learn More About Books at a Glance ♦
Hi, I’m Fred Zaspel, editor at Books at a Glance. If you are anything at all like me, books are a huge part of your life. King Solomon famously said that of the making of many books there is no end – but somehow we are okay with that. What a wonderful medium of communication and learning books are! But there is the frustration of keeping up. And there is the frustration of selection – knowing which books to buy next. Books at a Glance was created to help with just these frustrations. Our staff keeps up with all the newest and best in Christian publishing in order to keep our members informed and up to date. Much more than a book review service, we summarize the contents and thought of each book, so that you can digest a book in minutes. Each summary is an accurate and comprehensive yet brief and concise presentation of the entire book, chapter by chapter, delivered directly to your computer, iPad, or cell phone every week. And in just minutes you will become acquainted with the contents and arguments of each new book. Books at a Glance distinguishes itself as a book summary service that focuses on the newest and the best of Christian publications. Along with these summaries we also provide: book reviews, author interviews, author blogs, etc. In all, we trust this will be a site of real value for you. Check us out. We are excited about our work, and I think you will be too. Blessings, Fred Zaspel

On Guard by Deepak RejuDeepak Reju Interview Part 2, ON GUARD: PREVENTING AND RESPONDING TO CHILD ABUSE

I’ve been surprised at how many churches don’t have a child protection policy or don’t use any kind of screening measures (references, criminal background checks, etc.). The first and foremost thing that a church can do is get a good policy in place. If a church doesn’t have a policy, I’ve included in the […] Continue Reading

Book Review:


Because of its challenging material and tone, unlike some other biblical books, Ecclesiastes has generated several distinct ways of understanding how it teaches. Which approach one embraces has significant impact on the final interpretation. One may decide that the book teaches as straightforwardly as other texts do and deny or explain […] Continue Reading

Book Review:


The book, Forgotten Songs, suggests that one answer to this question is a rediscovery of the psalms which are too often a neglected treasure of the Church.
