"In the pages of this book Roger Nicole brings us into the world of sane and satisfying Calvinism through cogent exposition, colorful illustration and compelling application. It will serve well as a primer for those new to the Reformed faith and as a refresher for those who know it well."Read more
'The book of Job is included within the canon of Scripture, not to perplex, or provoke debate, but for proclamation... Yet relatively few preachers feel comfortable doing that! In these pages a preacher-theologian guides us through the sermons of one of the greatest preacher-theologians of church history... The end product is to pave the way for Job to be used more powerfully and practically in the pulpit. In so doing it will open this book for all who struggle with suffering and the problem of evil.'Read more
"He explains and applies them with a freshness that must surely fire every reader with the passion for the true godliness that is so hard to find these days, yet which is so vital to genuine Christian living."Read more
"He combines the depth of understanding of a thorough-going Old Testament scholar with the breadth of insight of a biblical theologian and the perception of a preacher well used to addressing contemporary audiences to provide us with a commentary that brings the preaching potential of these books to life."Read more
"Few things are more precious in the ordinary life and experience of the church than the sacramental meal instituted by Christ. Yet few things are more poorly understood and appreciated by his people. Round the Lord's Table we not only meet with Christ and hear his voice - which is true on every occasion his people gather in his name - but we also commune with him. In the language of the Book of Common Prayer: here his people ‘feed upon him by faith in their hearts with thanksgiving.' Malcolm Maclean has done the church of the 21st Century an enormous service by providing a resource that opens up the meaning of the Supper so helpfully. He not only unpacks its significance as he explores its theology, but by looking at the past he also makes us think again about the practicalities of how it should be celebrated. All who long to benefit more fully from the Lord's Supper will do well to read these pages."Read more
Dale Leschert combines the insights of a scholar with the communicative skills of a pastor-teacher as he guides us through the unfolding message of the New Testament. In so doing, he provides a tool that takes the reader from overview, through detailed outline to a comprehensive, flowing summary of each New Testament book. Here is a study guide which will prove to be a true asset to anyone who wants to engage in serious Bible study, or who is looking for help in preparing to teach the New Testament to others.Read more
The book of Psalms is a unique book of praise because God is its author. It encompasses the entire sweep of redemptive history, albeit from the standpoint of anticipating its fulfilment. It embraces almost every conceivable circumstance of life with songs that not only speak to us, but for us. But what should guide us in our efforts to understand and teach them? As with other books of the Bible, there are many valid ‘keys’ that help us; but one is vital: Christ.
Christopher Ash, in keeping with a respected line of Bible teachers through the ages, shows how to use this key. He shows Christ to be the Singer of the Psalms and the One in whom we make them our very own.
Do we really need another book on the Westminster Shorter Catechism? It might be tempting to say we don’t, since this classic summary of Bible doctrine already has countless summaries and explanations of it in circulation. But both the title and the table of contents of this particular volume immediately captured my imagination. Here is a fresh and thoughtfully applied exploration of the great truths that were first summarised for a distant generation, revisited for today.Read more
