Super-blogger Tim Challies has a new book out: The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. This looks to be a good book about a topic rarely discussed.
Just read the endorsements, and you will see that this book is seriously recommended by nearly all the modern heroes.
Evidently, there has been some discussion recently regarding endorsements. People are saying that many of those who write endorsements don't really read the books and are just doing it as a favor for the author (or publisher). You can read Challies' post about this and Justin Taylor's post that seemingly started this discussion.
My confession: Endorsements are very attractive to me. If John Piper, CJ Mahaney, Mark Dever, Al Mohler, or Donald Whitney are willing to put their name on a particular book, that is a book I want to read. These are men who would never simply write an endorsement without agreeing with and finding value in a book. I would love to see more endorsements not less.
What do you think?
