Tim Kimberley of Credo House Ministries has written a short, favorable review of Kevin DeYoung’s Don’t Call It a Comeback: The Old Faith for a New Day (Crossway, 2011). I appreciated his advice about how to use this book. He writes:
“If I were to start doing a study with someone.Â Maybe a mentor-type situation with a person in their teens, twenties or thirties this is one of possibly 3 books right now I’d consider reading with them.Â The chapters are very short so you aren’t requiring a lot of the person you’re going through the book with.Â The first eight chapters cover doctrinal matters in an engaging way.Â In the journey of discipleship you need to cover the essential doctrines of the faith.Â There were only a couple times where I felt the book lagged in this doctrinal section.Â The final eight chapters walk through key issues where Christians, especially younger Christians, need to have a firm understanding.Â 200 years ago a chapter on gender confusion would be absurd.Â Today it is crucial. Â The final eight chapters wisely discuss life issues such as homosexuality, social justice and abortion. It’s a fun, informative, and heart stirring book to read with a friend.”
