Seven Leaders

by Iain Murray

$18, hardcover

“Spiritual Leaders lead people to heaven. These are accounts of seven such men, together with the distinctive features of their lives – in John Elias, the necessity of the power of the Holy Spirit; in Andrew Bonar, the reality of communion with Christ; in Archie Brown, the irresistibility of love; in Kenneth MacRae, the need for faithfulness to death; in Martyn Lloyd-Jones, theology and doctrine; in W.J. Grier, passing on the ‘sacred deposit’; and in John MacArthur, the governing authority of the word of God.” – taken from the book jacket.

Iain Murray was Assistant to Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones at Westminster Chapel, London and cofounder of The Banner of Truth.

Text

A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day

by Joni Eareckson Tada

$13, gift size

We are unaware of anything written by Joni Eareckson Tada that does not bring glory to God and give the reader hope. This devotional is no exception.

Voices from the Past, Volume 2

by Richard Rushing, editor

$20, hardcover

So many of us have enjoyed Volume 1’s excerpts from the Puritans, those godly men whose wisdom was steeped in the word of God and, therefore, timeless. Let’s feast a little more. Here’s Volume 2.

THEOLOGY

Text

Devoted to God: Blueprints for Sanctification

by Sinclair Ferguson

$13

“Christians are transformed by the renewing of their minds. They understand that, in large measure, how they think about the gospel will determine how they will live for God’s glory. They learn to allow the word of God to do its own work, informing and influencing the way they think in order to shape the way they live… Devoted to God works out this principle in detail.” – excerpted from the back of the book

Text

Rediscovering the Holy Spirit

by Michael Horton

$15

D. A Carson summarizes, “By displaying the sweeping work of the Spirit across redemptive history, Horton not only deepens our understanding of Scripture but our grasp of what it means to confess God as triune. And that calls us to deeper worship.” Horton has a knack for translating difficult doctrines into everyday parlance. You will be encouraged in your faith.

Text

Steps Toward Heaven

by JC Ryle

$9

“According to Ryle, the first thing we need to know is where we stand before God. ‘To understand our position in the sight of God is one step towards heaven.’” – back of the book

BIBLICAL THEOLOGY – a big picture look at themes in the Bible

Text

How to Read and Understand the Biblical Prophets

by Peter Gentry

$13

If you’re planning a study of the prophets, this book would be a good place to start to help organize your thoughts and to gain clarity from a big picture perspective about what is happening in the prophetic books. It is also concise at only 124 pages. A bonus – the appendix provides "The Literary Structure of the Book of Revelation" in eight pages.

Text

The Temple and the Tabernacle: A Study of God’s Dwelling Places from Genesis to Revelation

by J. Daniel Hays

$13

Visual learners, this is for you… Color pictures and charts on nearly every page in an academic book! Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised: Daniel Hays also gave us The Baker Illustrated Bible Commentary ($23). New information from current archaeological discoveries makes this a must have.

CHRISTIAN LIVING

Text

Hope When it Hurts: Biblical Reflections to Help You Grasp God’s Purpose in Your Suffering

by Kristen Wetherell and Sarah Walton

$16, clothbound

Surely, this tool can be used by men too. Though it is covered in a sage green cloth with flowers painted on the cover, its contents are rich — too rich to just be “girl stuff”. Both afflicted by Lyme’s disease, Kristen and Sarah wrote this book in the midst of suffering. The layout is unique. At the end of each chapter is a call to reflect, pray and then journal in the space given.

Living Life Backwards: How Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End

by David Gibson

$12

“The past two decades have witnessed quite a number of popular expositions of Ecclesiastes – and this one by Gibson is the best of them.” – D. A. Carson

Text

Alive in Him: How Being Embraced by the Love of Christ Changes Everything

by Gloria Furman

$12

Alive in Him draws us into the main themes of the book of Ephesians, showing us how the blessings we have received in Christ empower our obedience and love for God. Designed to be read alongside an open Bible, Alive in Him helps us to apply Paul’s letter to our daily lives, reminding us of our purpose on earth and directing our gaze to the love of Jesus Christ – a love that has the power to transform how we live.” – excerpted from back of book

PURITANS

Following on the heels of the Reformers in the early to mid 17th century, the Puritan writings are arguably the greatest source of biblical wisdom next to the Bible itself.

Text

The Way to True Peace and Rest

by Robert Bruce

$9

Six sermons on Hezekiah’s sickness from Isaiah 38 and the application to all of us, “…that we may learn how to conduct ourselves in the event of our suffering some serious disease…” Translated into modern English.

Text

Text

The Pilgrim’s Progress

by John Bunyan

$16, hardcover

Who might enjoy having this version of The Pilgrim’s Progress? Those who will appreciate the 1895 John C. Nimmo version with the etchings by William Strang. At 7.5 x 5 it is the perfect size and made to last in hardcover with sewn binding and is newly type-set in Minion Pro on quality paper. It includes scripture references and notes in the margins which can be helpful when returning to the narrative or using it for teaching. Derek Thomas calls Pilgrim’s Progress, “The most important book other than the Bible… Every parent should give their children a copy.”

FOR THE LITTLEST THEOLOGIANS

Text

God’s Very Good Idea: A True Story of God’s Delightfully Different Family

by Trillia Newbell

$12, hardcover

If you liked The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross ($12), you will equally appreciate this book. The illustrator is the same and while the author is different, the style and cadence is the same. Both books present the gospel in a way children can understand. The twist to this book is how it teaches children the varied nature of God’s people: though they “look different or speak different or play different…are all made in God’s image, and so they are all valuable”.

Text

The Biggest Story ABC

by Kevin DeYoung

$10, board book

Brilliant! Might we dare to say this board book is for all ages? This book simplifies the storyline of the gospel in such a way that it could be used as a tract. The artwork is colorful. In fact, it is the same artist, Don Clark, who Kevin DeYoung used for The Biggest Story ($13). Come take a look and consider to whom you could pass it along .

Reformation ABC’s: The People, Places and Things of the Reformation from A to Z

by Stephen Nichols and Ned Bustard
