Not Against Flesh and Blood

Introduced by R. Albert Mohler  The author reminds us that the devil operates on a worldwide scale as well as upon individuals. He traces the confusion and chaos of present-day society to the destructive work of Satan and states that in a day where there is a renewed fascination with astrology, the occult, spiritism and ‘doctrines of devils’, we need to be aware of these evil powers. Here we are reminded that the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of righteousness will reign over all! ISBN 978-1-84550-735-0 Trade | 112 Pages | PB | £5.99

Truth Unchanged, Unchanging

Introduction by Alister Begg Dr Lloyd-Jones takes us beyond human prejudices and provides us with an apologetic for the gospel.
