As you read it you will want to pause often, turning to the various passages of Scripture and taking time to think through the implications of these most vital truths."Read more
"Peter Grainger's Firm Foundations sounds a loud and clear note for lively, imaginative, Bible-based, Christ-centered preaching. These principles and patterns will prove as helpful to the seasoned expositor as they will to the fledgling pastor. I commend it enthusiastically."Read more
"Books on the Old Testament tend to be either technical and tedious or superficial and moralistic. Once in a while we discover one that breaks the mould. T. J. Betts has done it! He tells us not only what Amos means but also why it matters. He proves again that the expositor's task is not to make the Bible relevant, but to simply show how relevant it is!"Read more
"The world today is vastly different from the one in which our author lived. Yet despite all the advances of science and technology it would be hard to argue that it is a better place. While men and women look for answers that might be anticipated in the future, the Bible tells us that the answer is found in something accomplished in the past. Christ died for sins once for all the righteous for the unrighteous to bring you to God. It is this unchanging truth that we are to believe and proclaim in these changing times."Read more

This is one of the most soul–stirring,
liberating books that I have read on this subject. Donald MacLeod provides the reader with a necessary reminder to seek to persuade and implore men and women on Christ’s behalf to be reconciled to God. I hope that it will show up in my preaching. I commend this book particularly to a rising group of young reformed pastors who when it comes to this matter of the ‘free offer’ are in danger of being tripped up by their own theological shoelaces.
I have a vivid and embarrassing memory from the 70’s of attempting to expound 2 Peter at an OMF weekend. If only this superb volume had been available then, it would have saved me and my listeners. No one should attempt to teach these letters without the help this book provides.Read more
As a pastor who would have loved to be a footballer I really enjoyed this book about a footballer who loves being a pastor. A terrific story of someone who has spent his life heading towards the goal to receive a prize that doesn’t tarnish with time.Read more
