"Vance Christie has given us a thorough, engaging, meticulously documented but wonderfully readable chronicle of the life of David Brainerd. Christie makes Brainerd live and breathe for the twenty-first century reader in a vivid, colorful account of the young man's heart, mind, and work. This is a splendid volume, full of insight into what drove Brainerd to give his life in the Lord's service—despite several obstacles that would seem insurmountable to the typical person today."Read more
'As the epidemic of moral failure among church leaders shows signs of worsening, the church must carefully re-examine some hard questions in the clear light of scripture. John Armstrong has done this, and here he offers a thoughtful, biblical response - surely the finest book to date on this difficult subject.'Read more
'The story of Frank Barker is an amazing account of how God uses the faithful and the humble. In a marvelous way Christ sought him, saved him, and made him an effective instrument for the building up of the church. What a remarkable and encouraging legacy!'Read more
"How can a good, all-powerful God allow evil and suffering in this world?" This question has been asked for millennia, and it is at the heart of what theologians call "the problem of evil." Drawing from his personal experiences, as well as from his notable academic credentials, Brian Morley provides his readers with biblical and practical insight into this important subject. For those wanting to think rightly about pain and suffering, God in the Shadows is a wonderful place to start.
"...there is no shortage of strategists and innovators in the evangelical community who think that they have better ways for reaching the culture than by preaching God's Word. Ben Awbrey knows better than that... I have long appreciated his desire to help other preachers make the most of their gifts and calling. His insights have proved invaluable to hundreds of pastors and young preachers."Read more
It's good to see this classic on prayer in an accessible edition. Ligon Duncan has done brilliant work, adapting Matthew Henry for twenty-first century readers without sacrificing any of the depth and devotional value of the original Puritan work.Read more
"Conventional wisdom in this pragmatic age of ours insists that it's always easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. Scripture says almost the exact opposite: "To obey is better than sacrifice" (1 Sam. 15:22). David Hegg has written this very helpful book to show why obedience to God is always the best of all our choices. Carefully, skillfully tracing the theme through several passages of Scripture, he shows why obedience is not merely our duty; it can also be our delight. Easy to read and yet thought provoking, this is a fine book on a supremely important topic."Read more
"Confessing Jesus as Lord is an invaluable addition to the debates and discussions that are already beginning to take place. I'm thankful for the way Dr. Chrisope handles the issue. This book is not an arcane and academic discussion of theological technicalities; nor is it a caustic polemical diatribe. It is just straightforward biblical wisdom applied with clarity and simplicity to an issue every Christian needs to understand. I trust you will find it as helpful and as persuasive as I did."Read more
Unbelievably rich, Watson's messages still communicate today with a power and clarity that is simply breathtaking. Jack Hughes has done a tremendous job... This book will be a valuable tool for any preacher seeking to improve his skill in handling and communicating the Word of God.Read more
Christ's own summons to discipleship is impossible to harmonize with the laid-back, seeker-sensitive, superficial religion practiced by so many people today who claim to be followers of Christ. Dr. Lawson's exposition of Luke 14:25-35 distills the vital message and presents it in a robust and penetrating way.Read more
John Calvin was the most influential theologian to the Reformation. His writings and ministry kindled the fire of biblical clarity and the structure of orthodoxy still accepted to this day. The one blight on Calvin’s reputation that critics are quick to point out was his consent to the 1553 execution of Michael Servetus, a heretic who denied the Trinity, and therefore was tried and burned at the stake in Geneva.
As with any historical event, Servetus’ execution is riddled with complexities.
Jonathan Moorhead sheds much–needed light on the events surrounding that infamous trial and execution. He demonstrates that Calvin’s primary concern was not his execution, but his conversion. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in finding out what exactly transpired, and the broader implications.
