    Is anyone here reading his latest book? I am on page 76. So far he has talked about the New Atheism which has persuaded me that evidential apologetics and those that choose to debate atheists, agnostics, and write books in a way are wasting their time with "fools" who will never see the evidence of God, because they have chosen to reject God, and so have been blinded (Rom 1).

    He has spoken about spiritual warfare, and in the chapter I am on now he is talking about how Jesus has been profaned in the culture. None of this is news to me, but Jeremiah is calling christians to use discernment in what they watch, listen too, and associate with. His language and writing style is very simple, but in a way he is communicating exactly what Erwin Lutzer does in a book on discernment, except Lutzer writes with bigger words, and does not have as many quotes from the culture as Jeremiah.

    I have not yet listened to his sermons on this book but plan to do that soon. I have many books by this author. His writing style is not as academic as others, but he knows how to communicate well and get quotes from outside sources very well.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    Though I've not read anything by DJ, I consider him to be one of the more practical teachers I've heard.

    I can't say I've heard Lutzer much, but agree with you from what little I have heard.

    I used to listen to Stanley, but not so much any more.

    Got the book. Went to a pastor's breakfast and rally a couple weeks ago. Really enjoyed his messages. Book is very good.

    :) Math is our friend. God invented the whole numbers, all else is the invention of man.
