Studies on Prayer in the Life of the ApostleClick here for a copy: Gleanings from Paul: Studies in the Prayers of the Apostle

Many Christians long to see greater depth in their praying but don’t know where to turn. In this detailed study on prayer, A.W. Pink examines the prayers of the Apostle Paul. This rich book not only instructs the reader how to pray, but give insight into Paul’s relationship with God and the people he served.

Product Description

From the moment of his conversion Paul was a man of prayer. His many prayers scattered throughout his letters are among the richest sources in all of Scripture for getting a practical insight into the subject matter of God-honoring prayer. Pink’s detailed study captures the essence of the apostle’s concern for the congregations on whose behalf he consistently prayed. However, Gleanings from Paul is much more than a mere study of Paul’s prayers. Pink’s insights help to gain a more rounded understanding of the apostle himself, the God he served, and the churches with which he worked.

Author  A.W. Pink  (1886-1952) served as a pastor for churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina. His ministry brought him throughout the United States, Australia, and Great Britain.

A Review:

The widespread circulation of Pink’s writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century. — Iain H. Murrary

Calvin, theologian par excellence of the Reformation, laid the foundation for all later Protestant exegesis of the Bible. Marked by an honest, careful handling of the text, Calvin’s expositions of Scripture remain as “modern” as ever in their relevance to today’s student.

Commentary on the Gospel According to John

“Commentary on John is an impressive commentary, containing some of Calvin’s most important views. Calvin is regarded as one of the Reformation’s best interpreters of Scripture. He frequently offers his own translations of a passage, explaining the subtleties and nuances of his translation. He has a penchant for incorporating keen pastoral insight into the text as well. He always interacts with other theologians, commentators, and portions of the Bible when interpreting a particular passage. Further, this volume also contains informative notes from the editor. Calvin’s Commentary on John should not be ignored by anyone interested in the book of John or Calvin himself.” – Tim Perrine.

This work was first published in weekly installments over a twenty-year span in the London Metropolitan Tabernacle’s periodical, The Sword and the Trowel.

Commentary on the PsalmsCompleted sections were released volume by volume, until the final volume was released in 1885. Within a decade more than 120,000 sets had been sold. The Treasury of David is a superb literary achievement. Eric Hayden, pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle a century after Spurgeon’s ministry began there, calls this work “Spurgeon’s magnum opus.” Spurgeon’s wife said that if Spurgeon had never written any other work, this would have been a permanent literary memorial.

Throughout history, the Psalms have yielded in Spurgeon’s words, “boundless profit and ever-growing pleasure.” The Treasury of David, a 6-volume commentary on the Psalms by Charles Spurgeon, captures Spurgeon at the height of his literary career. With hundreds of thousands of copies sold, these classic commentaries have informed and inspired generations of Christians who have studied the Psalms.

The Treasury of David is one of the most comprehensive commentaries on the Psalms ever written, and Spurgeon devoted nearly two decades to completing the project. For each Psalm, Spurgeon offers verse-by-verse commentary, followed by detailed explanatory notes, quotations, and sayings for each verse. Each Psalm also contains suggestions for preaching and teaching, including illustrations, themes, and other tips. That makes Spurgeon’s Treasury of David one of the more useful commentaries for pastors and teachers ever written on the Psalms.
