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

Come Let Us Reason Together - MoazCOME LET US REASON TOGETHER: THE UNITY OF JEWS AND GENTILES IN THE CHURCH, by Baruch Maoz
Judaism is a religion that purports to spring out of the soil of the OT but whose links to the OT are tenuous at best. It is, rather, the product of rabbinic tradition that has intruded itself between the believer and the word of God by claiming exclusive interpretive authority and by developing doctrines and practices that are non-bibl […] Continue Reading

Second, although many will disagree with his construal of the relationship between the kingdom and the church, I separately came to the same conclusion in my study of Matthew.
