The Plight of Man And the Power of God

“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

Description

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.

Product Description

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.

Summary

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.”

“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

Testimonial:

“Octavius Winslow has been one of my favorite authors for more than forty years.—His “Personal Declension and Revival of Religion in the Soul” is one of the first books I turn to when I feel my spiritual life slipping into the early stages of backsliding. I love Winslow’s spiritual optimism and integrity. For me, he represents devotional writing at its best. He is always leading me to Christ and stirring my soul to love Him more fervently. His writings are always biblical, spiritual, deep, and inspirational. They engage the heart as they transform the will and sure-footedly guide us in the good fight of faith on the way to glory.”  Joel Beeke of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
