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.

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.

Product Description

Topics include:

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.

The Moslem Christ By Samuel M Zwemer
What do Moslems believe about Jesus? What are the deep significances attached to the names they assign Jesus in the Koran? What does the Koran teach about Christ’s life, deeds, teachings, his crucifixion and his Coming Again? And how does any Christian reach a Moslem with the truth of who Christ really is without alienating them? All this and much more is answered in this scholarly yet very readable work by a Christian missionary to the Moslem World.

The Moslem Jesus is an essay on the life, character, and teachings of Jesus Christ according to the Qur’an and the Orthodox traditions. Islam is the only of the great non-Christian religions which gives a place to Christ in its book, and yet it is also one of the non-Christian religions which denies His deity. This volume provides a gateway to understanding what Islam teaches about Christ and ends with a chapter on how to preach to Muslims about Christ with this knowledge.

About the Author

Samuel Zwemer was a missionary to Arabia from 1890—1913, and then served in Egypt until 1929. Loving the Mohammedans passionately and knowing their religion thoroughly, with an almost perfect command of Arabic and an accurate knowledge of the Koran, he was known as the lion-hearted missionary who confounded the Arabs out of their own scriptures with the truth of Christ. Samuel Zwemer worked tirelessly for an enlargement of the missionary force to the Moslem world. After returning to the USA, he taught at Princeton Theological Seminary until 1952.

This book will appeal to seminarians, pastors, and laypeople. Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin is an introduction to the Bible and a vindication of Reformation principles by one of the Reformation’s finest scholars.The Institutes of the Christian Religion

Author: Calvin, John (1509-1564)

Published first in 1536, the Institutes of the Christian Religion is John Calvin’s magnum opus. Extremely important for the Protestant Reformation, the Institutes has remained important for Protestant theology for almost five centuries.

Written to “aid those who desire to be instructed in the doctrine of salvation,” the Institutes, which follows the ordering of the Apostle’s Creed, has four parts.

The first part examines God the Father; the second part, the Son; the third part, the Holy Spirit; and the fourth part, the Church. Through these four parts, it explores both “knowledge of God” and “knowledge of ourselves” with profound theological insight, challenging and informing all the while. Thus, for either the recent convert or the long-time believer, for the inquisitive beginner or the serious scholar, John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion is a rewarding book worthy of study! Reviewer:Tim Perrine

At the age of twenty-six, Calvin published several revisions of his Institutes of the Christian Religion, a seminal work in Christian theology that altered the course of Western history and that is still read by theological students today. It was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French). The book was written as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some learning already and covered a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone. It vigorously attacked the teachings of those Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism, to which Calvin says he had been “strongly devoted” before his conversion to Protestantism. The over-arching theme of the book–and Calvin’s greatest theological legacy–is the idea of God’s total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election.


The Seven Sayings Of The Saviour On The CrossThe words spoken from the cross, says Dr. Arthur W. Pink, “reveal the excellencies of the One who suffered there; and inform us of the purpose, the meaning, the sufferings, and the sufficiency of the Death Divine.”

 From the Foreword by John MacArthur:
“This volume has long been one of my favorite works from Pink’s pen. He was at his best whenever he wrote about Christ, and he was never more focused, more thorough, or more compelling than when he proclaimed Christ crucified. In this book he explains the meaning of the cross through the last words of the Savior Himself. These are deeply moving glimpses of Christ in His extremity. Every chapter is a treasure.”
 
Discover the meaning behind the words.In The Seven Sayings of the Saviour on the Cross, Dr. Pink illustrates clearly the lessons that emerge out of the seven utterances of Christ on the cross, filling the reader with the glory of the redemptive message. Chapters include insightful lessons on:
  • Forgiveness
  • Salvation
  • Affection
  • Anguish
  • Suffering
  • Victory
  • Contentment 

Each message has its own sevenfold expression, whereby Dr. Pink organized the text under seven clearly-stated main headings, making this volume perfect for both sermon preparation and personal study.
