In David Crowder Band’s last offering there are really four albums. The first tracks are a Gregorian mix between an old school Catholic mass (a trend through the whole album). The next few songs are a sequence of mellow beats. The next is a contemporary worship album which harkens back to Remedy, and the last songs are a tribute to A Collision, a bluegrass rockabilly rock show. You will like this album, I guarantee it.
Listen online or buy: This is an album to purchase and listen through several times, over and over again. Get this one digital, because if you buy the CD you will wear it out several times over.
Theme: The theme of Give Us Rest is the completion of the Christian faith. It is not as focused as Church Music, but has a variety of themes including death, love, life, and the grace of Jesus Christ in all situations.
This book is a transcription of a series of lectures given by Dr. D.A. Carson during a Resurgence conference. It is a book on the life of Christ. It is reminiscent of a series of lectures and reads like a series of lectures, however it is an incredible resource on the power of the cross of Jesus Christ and different perspectives that Christ gives us on scripture.
Buy or Rent: This is a good one to own. Carson is a brilliant writer and has a great mind on scripture.
Who is D.A. Carson? D.A. Carson is a research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, in Deerfield, Illinois. He is from Canada and loves Jesus. He is former pastor and is now a theologian. His background in ministry and his current theological endeavors gives him an incredible perspective and ability to teach the bible to intellectuals and lay people.
Famous atheist Christopher Hitchens has passed, but read this volume to see how his brother’s similar experiences brought him to Christ. Peter Hitchen’s book talks about grace, love, and the reality of the human experience. Hitchen’s book is entertaining, well written, and points to the grace of Jesus Christ.
Buy, Rent, or Own: This is a good one to rent.
Who are the Hitchen’s brothers? Two world travelers and human observers who came to different perspectives on Christ. Christopher Hitchen’s is one of the world’s most famous atheists, while Peter has defended the faith against his brother’s attacks.
