I appreciate the fact that many people have found my 2009 Summer Reading List to be helpful. The list is just a start, of course, and it was intended from the beginning to be helpful also for Father’s Day.

Summer is a great time to catch up on reading that is both enjoyable and truly informative. Several major books in the category of historical works are worthy of a good summer reading project, and each of these fills some gaps in our understanding of the past — and thus the present.

The inaugural issue of Christianity Today, dated October 15, 1956, featured an article by Billy Graham entitled, “Biblical Authority in Evangelism.” The thrust of the article was clear — without an unhesitant “thus saith the Lord” authority in preaching and evangelism, the message lacks all authority. The only authority that matters, Dr. Graham insisted, was the authority of the Bible as the Word of God.

When a sniper’s bullet took the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis on April 4, 1968, America lost its foremost leader in the civil rights movement. Forty years later, Americans are still coming to terms with the life and legacy of Dr. King. On today’s program, Dr. Mohler welcomes Ken Fentress, pastor of…
