"If truth is not diffused, error will be. If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his work will gain the ascendancy." Daniel Webster

Sovereignty of God
Arthur W. Pink
A must read in this day of weak preaching. A god who bites his fingernails hoping that somebody--just anybody--will come to him is not the God of the Bible. Thoroughly biblical, this book is wedded to the Word. Read it and fear the God who is sovereign over all things. As the Puritan Thomas Manton says, "There is no wrinkle on the brow of eternity."
Christian Father's Present to His Children
John Angell James
In this writing we hear the voice of fatherly counsel exhorting the conscience of the child to embrace Christ and a life of piety and principled behavior. Addressing such things as the cultivation of the inner man, the use of time and entertainments, the choice of friends, the prospects of adulthood, and the certainty of eternity, this book makes an appropriate present for every father to impart to his son or daughter.
"The charismatic movement, once considered a splinter group on the fringe of Christianity, has gained steam and entered the '90s at full speed. Dramatic new accounts of bizarre, supernatural events are attracting men and women hungry for religious experiences while causing others simply to ask, What is really happening here or more important, What should I believe." This is must reading for all Christians in light of the fact that the false prophet himself will in end times call fire down from heaven and raise one from the dead (Rev. 13).
Preaching of the Cross
Here is an attempt to understand what was in the apostles' minds when they used such words as "redeem," "covenant," "propitiate," "reconcile," and "justify." Morris studies these themes against the background of the relevant Old Testament passages, takes into account the light shed on the meanings of these words in the everyday language of New Testament times by the manuscript discoveries of recent years, and compares apostolic terminology to that used by the rabbinic writings.
in God's Program
This book is a very solid analysis of what the New Testament teaches about the practice of the local church. Well documented and footnoted, this book is must reading in a day when the traditions of men are so often followed.
Place for Truth
David F. Wells
Written expressly to encourage renewal in evangelical theology, No Place for Truth explores the interface between Christian faith and the modern world in entirely new ways and with uncommon rigor. David F. Wells's sweeping analysis examines the collapse of theology in the church, the academy, and modern culture, raising profound questions about the future of conservative Protestant faith. In this day when the church is so often occupied with poetry, psychology, politics, philosophy, dance, dramatic reading, mime, entertainment, interesting stories, this book takes the reader back to New Testament church principles.
the Nations be Glad! The Supremacy of God in Missions
Missions is the heart beat of the Lord Jesus. This was the Lord's constant them after His resurrection and before His ascension. Jesus told His disciples to "Go". May the church take heed to the Lord's command. A church that is not a missionary church will be a missing church when Jesus returns.
a Child's Heart
Dr. Tedd Tripp draws on over twenty years of experience as a pastor, counselor; school administrator in giving this valuable help to parents. "Shepherding a Child's Heart" is about how to speak to the heart of your child. The things your child does and say flows from their heart. Luke, 6:45 puts it this why, "..out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks" (NIV) Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child's heart into the paths of life. "Shepherding a Child's Heart", satisfies the hunger for fresh biblical approaches to child rearing.
J. C. Ryle
This classic should be on the bookshelf of every Christian family. He masterfully explores the subject of our duty to become holy as He is holy.
Just when one thinks they understand something about discipleship, MacDonald comes along and strips away all pretenses and reveals what it means to follow Christ. He gives insight to the Lord's awesome words when He said, "So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple" (Luke 14:33). Consisting of only 77 pages, well worth reading which the reader will never be the same again.
| Love to the Unseen Christ
This book has been out of print for 200 years. There is nothing more basic in Christianity than love to Christ. This book is poignant, warm, and full of affection to the lovely Christ. John MacArthur calls this book "a much-needed tonic...it will transform your walk with our blessed Lord."
Reformers and Their Stepchildren
Christian Harmony Publishers
This book is must reading, especially for those who claim to follow the Reformers. The key question is how does the Church relate to its environment. The Roman Catholic Church and the Reformers have always said the church is the Corpus Christianum or the body of christened society. All of society and the body of the church are one. The Church and state are wedded together. The Anabaptist and their followers said the church consist of the body of Christ or Corpus Christi. The early Baptist, Robert Brown said, "The church is a fellowship of believers rather than an army of pressed men." A must read, especially for those who enjoy the doctrines of grace but do not want to follow the Reformers in other areas.
