Book Review: Sam Storms - Tough Topics: Biblical Answers to 25Challenging Questions

I have always enjoyed reading Sam Storms. I have read his books on the doctrine of election and also a study of Jonathan Edwards and the Signs of the Spirit.

This book contains a list of questions that are on controversial subjects to say the least. From questions about the "destination of those who haven't heard" to "does God heal today". He has included some of the most interesting questions a Christian would want to know.

Like myself, Storms considers himself a Charismatic Calvinist. That let's you know that his view on tongues is not going to be a boring read. Many times I am a little reluctant to tell someone I am Charismatic because they think of someone who does not believe in using their mind. But I believe God wants us to worship Him in "Spirit" and in "Truth". He wants us to love him with our heart and mind.

Sam Storms is in the same catagory as C.J. Mahaney and John Piper. He is a great thinker, but does not shrink away from open worship toward God.

Storms spends a good amount of time on each question. He does not gloss over any subject. He gives different views of each question then gives a logical reason for his own view.

There are some great questions here book. He would do well to write a whole book on many of them.

Tough Topics was a very satisfying read and I highly recommend it.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book, free of charge, from Crossway and Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
