“We must rouse ourselves and realize afresh that though our Gospel is timeless and changeless, it nevertheless is always contemporary. We must meet the present situation and we must speak a word to the world that none else can speak.” ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ preaching always had an emphasis on the desperate plight of man and the power of God to save. His preaching was crystal clear on the sovereignty of God in the salvation of sinners, a concept that does not sit comfortably in our day of pragmatism, programmes and self-help books. Nevertheless it remains at the core of what the world needs to hear. Based on Romans chapter 1, this wonderful book will help you understand what the gospel is. As we live in a world that seems to be spiraling out of control, you will want to hear this message again and again.

Confessions of Augustine written by legendary philosopher and theologian Saint Augustine is an autobiographical work which is widely considered to be one of the greatest books of all time. This great classic will surely attract a whole new generation of readers. For many, Confessions of Augustine is required reading for various courses and curriculums. And for others who simply enjoy reading timeless pieces of classic literature, this gem by Saint Augustine is highly recommended.
In his own day the dominant personality of the Western Church, Augustine of Hippo today stands as perhaps the greatest thinker of Christian antiquity, and his Confessions is one of the great works of Western literature.
The Confessions of Bishop Augustine of Hippo reveal one man’s weaknesses, desires, and sin as well as his repentance and conversion. In this work, Augustine makes known his prayers on behalf of the reader: “Stir up the heart when people read and hear the confessions of my past wickedness, which you have forgiven and covered up to grant me happiness in yourself” (p. 180). It was his prayer that the heart, by reading these confessions, would be “aroused in the love of [God’s] mercy and the sweetness of [His] grace” (p. 180).
“This classic from the greatest theological mind of the first millennia after Christ shows us the great heart of Augustine. Devotional, inspiring and convicting, The Confessions show us the grace of God at work, giving us hope that He still works in us today. This book shaped the western church, and can reshape us all that we better reflect the character of Christ.”

With clear writing—technical terms kept to a minimum—and a contemporary approach, emphasizing how each doctrine should be understood and applied by present-day Christians, Making Sense of Christ and the Spirit explores Jesus Christ as fully God and fully man in one person.
The Person of Christ: including the virgin birth—uniting full deity and humanity in one person while enabling Christ’s humanity to be without inherited sin—and the incarnation—the act of God the Son whereby he took himself a human nature.
The Doctrine of the Atonement: the work Christ did in his life and death to earn our salvation.
Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension: affirming the goodness of God’s original creation of man as a creature with a physical body that was ‘very good’, and his rightful place in glory and honor that had not been his before as the God-man.
Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of Christ and the Spirit helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.

“Scougal contended that to be a Christian is to have “divine life” resident and reigning within.” He wrote that Christianity is not about external duties to perform, nor is it an emotion or feeling one has. He defines true religion as the union of the soul with God, a partaker of the divine nature, or in the apostle’s words, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
“In his book, Scougal essentially defines a Christian as this exquisite creature who actually has God resident in his soul. In his own way, he’s meditating on our union with Christ as a way of helping a new convert understand the Christian life.” – Thabiti Anyabwile

This study of Paul’s missionary work focuses not on the apostle’s doctrine or character but on the method by which he accomplished his task. Throughout, Allen compares Paul’s methods to modern missionary methods; he concludes by suggesting some ways the apostolic method might be usefully employed today.
Roland Allen’s Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s and Ours made a lasting impact on the missiological principles of the second half of the twentieth century. There were numerous missionaries – including both Protestants and Roman Catholics – who attempted to apply Allen’s ideas in their missionary works, and countless missiologists who used these ideas for further studies and discussions of relevant missionary methods.
Allen investigates the causes of Paul’s apparent success in preaching the gospel and planting churches. He examines the antecedent conditions, Paul’s presentation of the gospel, his teaching of converts, and his methods of dealing with organized churches.
While presenting Paul’s methods, Allen is highly critical of the Western missionary methods of his time, and makes constant appeals to his contemporary missionaries and mission agencies to re-examine their policies in the light of the New Testament evidence.
It is probably because some of the criticised methods still persist in our Western missionary methods today that Allen’s book has an increasing popularity since the 1960s.
Truth is timeless – The fact this book was written in 1927 but is applicable to our times is evidence of the Truth it holds. It is not an easy read. It provokes much thought and reflection.

The topic of manhood and womanhood is still strongly debated and still greatly impacts our society. For Christians, there is no doubt that the Bible must be the last word. But what does it teach about true manhood and womanhood? And how does its teachings affect our roles in the home, the church and the wider society? Noted pastor, author and Bible scholar John Piper looks at these important questions in a positive, sensitive light–with conclusions that encourage men and women to live out their unique differences in a fulfilling, godly way.
“Over the years I have come to see from Scripture and from life that manhood and womanhood are the beautiful handiwork of a good and loving God. He designed our differences and they are profound” (p. 13-14).
John Piper examines gender issues from a biblical perspective, showing how the teaching of true biblical manhood and womanhood affects the roles of men and women in the home, the church, and the wider society.

Faber says men in the modern era accept God’s existence; but deny His sovereigntyin practice. Though composed in mid-19th century; this book is absolutely on target today, for man’s tendency to arrogate to himself the prerogatives of God, although strong in Faber’s time, is epidemic today. A real eye-opener!
“Faber sketches, in prose that verges on being actually too gorgeous, both “what it is to be a creature” and “what it is to have a creator.” This book is kind of a spirituality of createdness, and succeeds better than any other book I know at showing the implications of the mere existence of God. Faber was so Roman Catholic that he worried the pope, and this book is full of phrases like ”the composition of this work has been a charity towards souls,” which can be a barrier for Protestant readers; but it’s a barrier well worth climbing, because Faber’s gifts are so unique that there’s just not a Protestant Faber out there anywhere.” - Fred Sanders, professor of theology in the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University
This book is amazing–so beautifully explained and prayerfully put together. The language used through out is poetic and evocative of the subject. He uses lots of imagery, drawing correlation between the spiritual world and the natural world, to great effect.
The love of God and reverence for all His creation reverberates through this book, and a lot of it, though it was written long ago, seems completely applicable to the world we live in now. I would recommend this book highly to anyone and everyone!
