– Kevin DeYoung, Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, MI

“An accessible, faithful guide to the actual Christmas story. Let this book help you get to grips with the reality and purpose of Christmas, and introduce you to the person who is at the center of it all.”

Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem by Kevin DeYoung9781433533389m

“Busy, hectic lives are the bane of the modern world. This book is not profound; rather it simply offers a lot of that most unfashionable commodity—common sense. DeYoung exposes the nature of busyness, the various ways in which it deludes us, and offers some basic advice on what to do about it. A fine, short book which deserves a wide readership.”
– Carl Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary

Extravagant Grace: God’s Glory Displayed in Our Weakness by Barbara R. Duguideg1-new.jpg

“In this fine book, Barbara Duguid combines her love of church history, her enthusiasm for John Newton, her insights honed as a pastor’s wife and, above all, her love for Christ and his church. Here the reader will find sharp insights into the psychology of sin and sound practical advice on how the Bible speaks to the mundane rebellions of everyday human existence, The heart is indeed restless above all things; Barbara Duguid ably directs us to where we can find rest: in Christ alone.”

July Giveaway

Taking God Seriously: Vital Things We Need to Know by J. I. Packer9781433533273m

“Like many people, I first discovered what it meant ‘to take God seriously’ through reading J. I. Packer’s books. It is thus an honor and a delight to be asked to write a commendation for his latest work, a basic catechetical plea for sober, modest, thoughtful and orthodox theology. In a church world dominated by Barnum and Bailey circus antics and the brash triviality borrowed from the world around in the name of ‘engagement,’ Dr. Packer remains a truly engaging and gentlemanly advocate for those old paths which are ever fresh.“
– Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary

Two-Book Giveaway

This month’s giveaway focuses on studying the Word. These two resources are valuable in helping the reader understand the Bible, and they’re good for personal study time.

The two titles are: One to One Bible Reading by David Helm and Dig Deeper: Tools for Understanding God’s Word by Nigel Beynon and Andrew Sach.

Endorsement:9781581349719m

“At last the book we have been waiting for, a modest-sized volume that lays out the cardinal principles of biblical exposition in clear, accessible, winsome language. I keep a stash of Dig Deeper in my office for gifts to aspiring preachers as well as to refresh my own preaching. A quickening read for all expositors and teachers of the Word!”

– R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, IL

To enter the giveaway, write a comment on how you used to read the Bible, and the tools you’ve used in the past.

“David Helm is deeply committed to the public exposition of God’s word and the training of preachers. Yet in this guide he advocates a deep-rooted culture of one-to-one Bible reading in our churches. Surely the two go hand in hand, but many Christians don’t know where to start in this personal Bible reading ministry. This guide provides the inspiration for this desperately needed ministry revolution and the growth of the gospel vine into every corner of our communities.

– Colin Marshall, Author of The Trellis and the Vine and CEO of Vinegrowers

Recovering the Gospel

The Gospel’s Power and Message by Paul Washer

Recommended by – Phil Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You9781601781956m

“Style-conscious evangelicals have done a lot of tinkering in recent decades to try to make the gospel seem more appealing or more palatable. All the sharp corners have been carefully sanded off and the message made as small as possible. It has then been wrapped in thick layers of foam so that no one can ever be hurt or offended by it. In The Gospel’s Power and Message, Paul Washer unwraps the gospel and displays its various facets in all their vivid glory. This book is a thoughtful, poignant reminder that the message Christ commissioned us to proclaim is neither spongy nor trivial. Nor can it be improved by human revision. The gospel may be a stumbling block to some and seem like foolishness to others—but to those who are called, it is the power and the wisdom of God.”

To join the giveaway, write something about the gospel in the comment section.

Giving Up Gimmicks: Reclaiming Youth Ministry from an Entertainment Culture by Brian H. Cosby9781596383944m

Endorsement:

“For more than a generation now we have sought to attract and entertain our precious youth rather than nurture them by grace. The majority have responded by turning their backs on the church. Brian Cosby has listened to their heart and is offering us the best biblical guidance we could ever hope to receive.”

Commentary Giveaway

I am not giving a whole set (it is not complete anyway) but an important volume in the series on a New Testament book. The Reformed Expository Commentary was started a few years ago, and the exposition on Acts by Derek Thomas is an excellent contribution.

Endorsement

Biblically thorough, theologically accurate, pastorally sensitive—here is a rich feast set before God’s people. As Derek Thomas feeds us from the book of Acts, not only do we find ourselves satisfied, we are compelled to love Jesus more today than we did yesterday. And isn’t that the goal of all biblical preaching, writing, and living?

Rainy Season Giveaway

Gospel: Recovering the Power That Made Christianity Revolutionary by JD Greear.

Foreword by Tim Keller:

My fellow pastor, J.D. Greear, through his book, has helped us in this quest for gospel-saturated living. He takes the principles of gospel centrality and shows us how to orient our lives around it. I appreciate how in refreshing and real ways he makes the gospel accessible to others so that they can experience its transforming power. I especially like the book’s practical section on gospel prayer as a way to assist us in rehearsing these truths deep into our hearts and minds. Whether you are exploring Christianity for the first time or are longing to ‘look into these things’ again and again, let me invite you to spend time with this helpful book.

Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus by Elyse Fitzpatrick

From the publisher: In Give Them Grace, parents will learn how to connect the benefits of the cross–especially regeneration, adoption, and justification–to their children’s daily lives. Chapters address topics such as our inability to follow the law perfectly, God’s forgiveness and love displayed at the cross, and what true heart obedience looks like. Fitzpatrick and Thompson also discuss discipline, dealing with popular culture, and evangelism as a way of life. Parents will find this book a great resource for raising grace-filled, Jesus-loving kids.
