John Piper, Justin Taylor, gen. eds.

The Power of Words and the Wonder of God John Piper, Sinclair Ferguson, Mark Driscoll, and other leaders from Desiring God’s 2008 national conference examine the life-altering power of our words and their impact in sharing the gospel. Words carry immeasurable significance: The universe was created with a word; Jesus healed and cast out demons with a word; rulers have risen and fallen by their words; Christians have worshiped through words of song, confession, and preaching. Even in our technological age, politics, education, business, and relationships center on words. Since the tongue is such a powerful force—for good or evil—we are wise to ask: What would homes, churches, schools, even the public square be like if we used words with Christian intentionality and eloquence? The Power of Words and the Wonder of God seeks to answer this difficult question. In these chapters, derived from Desiring God’s 2008 national conference, John Piper, Sinclair Ferguson, and Mark Driscoll team with worship pastor Bob Kauflin, counselor Paul Tripp, and literature professor Daniel Taylor to help readers harness their tongues and appropriately command their silences for the glory of God and the ministry of the gospel. JOHN PIPER is pastor of preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist

Church in Minneapolis. His many books include When I Don’t Desire God, Don’t Waste Your Life, and What Jesus Demands from the World.

John Piper

Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ

The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton The fifth volume in Piper’s acclaimed The Swans Are Not Silent series illustrates powerful and enduring lessons through the missional sufferings of Tyndale, Judson, and Paton. Jesus’ words in John 12 are sobering: unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it will bear little fruit. The history of Christianity’s expansion proves that God’s strategy for reaching unreached peoples with the gospel includes the sufferings of his frontline heralds—the missionaries who willingly die a thousand daily deaths to advance God’s kingdom. Pastor John Piper’s latest addition to The Swans Are Not Silent series focuses on this flesh-and-blood reality in the lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton. The price they paid to translate the Word of God, to pave the way for missionary mobilization around the world, and to lead the hostile to Christ was great. Yet their stories show in triplicate how the gospel advances not only through the faithful proclamation of the truth but through representing the afflictions of Christ in our sufferings.

Mark Dever, J. Ligon Duncan III, R. Albert Mohler Jr., C. J. Mahaney

Proclaiming a Cross-Centered Theology Contributors: Thabiti M. Anyabwile, John MacArthur, John Piper, R. C. Sproul Some of the leading voices in evangelical Christianity reaffirm the importance of preaching biblical theology for the health of our churches. Loving, teaching, and rightly dividing the Word of God is every pastor’s privilege and responsibility. If a pastor understands what the Word says about God, man, and the curse, about Christ and his substitutionary atonement, and about the call to repentance and sacrifice, he will develop and preach a sound theology. And sound theology is, in the words of J. Ligon Duncan, essential to faithful pastoral ministry. Proclaiming a theology that is centered on Christ’s atonement is especially critical, for by this atonement, Christians have been brought from death to life, and by it a church lives or dies. In this penetrating sequel to Preaching the Cross, John Piper, R. C. Sproul, John MacArthur, and Thabiti Anyabwile join authors Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J. Mahaney, and Albert Mohler in exploring the church’s need for faithful proclamation and calling pastors and churches to cross-centered, scripturally saturated thinking. MARK DEVER is senior pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. J. LIGON DUNCAN III is senior minister of First Presbyterian Church in Jackson,

Mississippi.

R. ALBERT MOHLER JR. is president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. C. J. MAHANEY is head of Sovereign Grace Ministries.

Mark Driscoll

Religion Saves Audio Book And Nine Other Misconceptions

After 343,203 online votes, here are the top nine questions posed by visitors to the Mars Hill Church website, each one answered by Pastor Mark Driscoll in his own voice. Inspired by 1 Corinthians, in which Paul answers a series of questions posed by the people in the Corinthian church, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle polled the visitors of his church’s website in 2008 to determine their most pressing questions. Visitors were allowed to vote up to ten times per day, and in the end, 893 questions were asked and 343,203 votes were cast. The top nine questions are now each answered in this audio version of Religion Saves, narrated by Driscoll himself. After an introduction devoted to the misconception that religion can save us, Driscoll tackles questions relating to birth control, humor, predestination, grace, sexual sin, faith and works, dating, the emerging church, and the regulative principle. Because the purpose of this audio book is to address commonly asked questions, all listeners will find relevant, engaging material, presented in Driscoll’s distinctively edgy—yet theologically sound—style.

Vintage Jesus

Timeless Answers to Timely Questions: A DVD Teaching Curriculum This interactive teaching curriculum from best-selling author and speaker Mark Driscoll explores twelve of the most pressing questions about Jesus Christ. The Vintage Jesus teaching curriculum drives readers to the Scriptures in search of who Jesus really is by answering twelve of the most pressing questions about the Savior, such as, Is Jesus the only God?

Author and pastor Mark Driscoll uses humor, personal experience, and relevance with today’s culture in a quest for the real Jesus. This study guide and DVD series will give Christians more understanding and confidence in communicating the nature and life-changing power of Jesus, and will challenge those still seeking the ultimate truth of life to think hard about Jesus’ own question that he asked his disciples thousands of years ago: “Who do you say that I am?” > DVD series includes 12 teaching sessions (30 minutes each) on 4 discs > Designed for ages 15 and older MARK DRISCOLL is the founding pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, one of the fastest-growing churches in America.

John macarthur

Ashamed of the Gospel

When the Church Becomes like the World (Third Edition) In the third edition of this top-selling book, John MacArthur challenges the seeker-sensitive, entertainment-oriented pragmatism that permeates the church today. In the late 1800s, Charles Spurgeon warned that the church was drifting away from the purity of the gospel, candy-coating God’s Word rather than boldly proclaiming the truths of Scripture. As a result, Christianity’s influence in nineteenth-century England was severely weakened. One hundred years later, John MacArthur, troubled by the seeker-sensitive movement and an emphasis on pragmatism within the church, sounded the same alarm with the first edition of Ashamed of the Gospel. In this newly revised and expanded edition, MacArthur gives an overview of developments in the seeker-sensitive movement since his book was first published in 1993. New material traces the line of pragmatic philosophy from the seeker-sensitive movement through the Emergent phenomenon, explaining why the latter is a philosophical heir of the former—and an even greater danger, and emphasizes the importance of evangelicals solidly committed to biblical doctrine rising to positions of leadership.

Bioethics and the Christian Life A Guide to Making Difficult Decisions

Just about everyone will face a difficult bioethics decision at some point. In this book a theologian, ethicist, and lawyer equips Christians to make such decisions based on biblical truth, wisdom, and virtue. Though a relatively new discipline, bioethics has generated extraordinary interest due to a number of socially pressing issues. Bioethics and the Christian Life places bioethics within the holistic context of the Christian life, both developing a general Christian approach to making bioethics decisions and addressing a number of specific, controversial areas of bioethics. Clear, concise, and well-organized, the book is divided into three sections. The first lays the theological foundation for bioethics decision-making and discusses the importance of wisdom and virtue in working through these issues. The second section addresses beginning-of-life issues such as abortion, stem-cell research, and infertility treatments. The third section covers end-of-life issues such as living wills, accepting and refusing medical treatment, and treatment of patients in permanent vegetative states.

DAVID VANDRUNEN is Robert B. Strimple Professor of Systematic

Theology and Christian Ethics at Westminster Seminary California, an ordained minister of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and a licensed attorney. He has authored or edited three books, most recently A Biblical Case for Natural Law, and many articles.

Histories and Fallacies

Problems Faced in the Writing of History A first-rate historical theologian references classic examples to confront conceptual and methodological problems in the works of those who seek to appropriate history for their own purposes. Seeking to raise the bar for all historians, Histories and Fallacies addresses several problems in the historical disciplines: objectivity, evidence and meaning, anachronism, idealism, and causality and context. In each chapter author Carl R. Trueman gives an account of the problem, examines one or more classic examples of it, and suggests either a solution or an approach that will bear fruit. This compelling book will be especially valued by advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and history lovers seeking a guide to the conceptual and methodological problems in this challenging discipline.

Richard D. Phillips, ed.

Precious Blood

The Atoning Work of Christ In this second volume of essays from the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology, several noted preachers join editor Richard Phillips in exploring the doctrine of Christ’s atonement and its history in Christian thought. At the very heart of Christian faith is the blood of Jesus. His sin-atoning death is the divine work on which the entire structure of salvation rests and the truth on which the Christian doctrine of salvation must be built. Yet recent years have seen a pastoral neglect of the cross and a doctrinal assault from the academy. With these concerns in mind, R. C. Sproul, Philip Ryken, Joel Beeke, Derek Thomas, Carl Trueman, and Robert Godfrey have joined editor Richard Phillips in exploring the doctrine of Christ’s atonement. These noted pastors proclaim the (1) necessary, (2) redeeming, (3) cleansing, (4) atoning, (5) offensive, and (6) precious blood of our Savior in a series of essays that set the cross in its rightful place—at the forefront of salvation.

RICHARD D. PHILLIPS is senior minister of Second Presbyterian

Church in Greenville, South Carolina. He chairs the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology and coedits the Reformed Expository Commentary. He has also written numerous books on the Bible, theology, and Christian living.

Southern Baptist Identity

An Evangelical Denomination Faces the Future Major SBC spokesmen address key issues of theology, polity, and practice to help readers respond to the most significant challenges within evangelicalism. What was once a small, southern, predominantly white denomination has become America’s largest evangelical denomination. Yet with the Southern Baptist Convention’s growth have come the challenges of increasing fragmentation, theological controversy, and sweeping cultural change. These challenges have caused leaders and members to ask: What does it mean to be a Southern Baptist in the twenty-first century? How can a fresh consensus be established from within? What are the core biblical convictions that must be upheld, the key practices that must be sustained, to reach the lost in this age of cultural accommodation? These essays by editor David Dockery, Al Mohler, Timothy George, Russell Moore, Paige Patterson, and eleven other SBC leaders address these important issues and themes from several perspectives. Their observations will illuminate the way not only for fellow Southern Baptists but for all evangelicals facing similar challenges in the twenty-first century and beyond.

Christian Apologetics Past and Present A Primary Source Reader (Volume 1, To 1500)

An unprecedented anthology of apologetics texts with selections from the first century ad through the Middle Ages. The apostle Peter tells us always to be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks us to account for our hope as Christians (1 Peter 3:15). While the gospel message remains the same, such arguments will look different from one age to another. In the midst of a recent revival in the field of apologetics, few things could be more useful than an acquaintance with arguments for Christian belief through the ages. This first of two proposed volumes features primary source documents from the time of the early church (100-400) and the Middle Ages (400-1500). Featured apologists include Aristides, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Origen, Athanasius, Augustine, Anselm, and Thomas Aquinas. The authors provide a preface to each major historical section, with a timeline and a map, then an introduction to each apologist. Each primary source text is followed by questions for reflection or discussion purposes. WILLIAM EDGAR (DTheol, University of Geneva) is professor of

apologetics and coordinator of the apologetics department at Westminster Theological Seminary. His books include Reasons of the Heart, The Face of Truth, and Truth in All Its Glory.

Zachary W. Eswine

Sensing Jesus

Pastoral Musings for Ministry Pastors and seminarians who read this book will learn pastoral theology in an unusually creative way and will be better equipped to shepherd people in the twenty-first century. We think of the five senses as being quite elementary, hardly the makings of a text in pastoral theology. And yet, in this distinctive and vibrant introduction to pastoral theology, Zachary Eswine does exactly that. Sensing Jesus first considers the question, “What did Jesus see, hear, touch, taste, and smell?” The answers provide a fresh and powerful exploration of Christ’s ministry. Eswine then guides readers into a consideration of “spiritual senses,” since pastoral theology must always be concerned with souls. In what ways do our souls see, hear, touch, taste, and smell? Jesus saw not only with his physical eyes but also with the eyes of faith, and Sensing Jesus helps readers to learn precisely what this means. This book is pastoral theology in autobiography; it draws on the works of poets and theologians, on life and dialogue, to offer a fresh and biblically faithful approach to the care of souls.

Harry Kraus, MD

Lethal Mercy Was it medicine? Mercy? Or murder? For the sake of his conscience, Jake has to find out—before a paranoid stalker exacts his revenge. When pregnant Sarah Hampton dies suddenly at an alternative cancer treatment facility, an enraged community demands to know whether her physician-husband assisted her death. Suffering from traumatic amnesia, Jake Hampton would like to know too. He strongly opposes assisted suicide, and yet his wife was suffering such agony—is it possible he helped her die? After barely avoiding a murder trial, and hoping to regain his memory and unravel the questions he’s not sure he wants answered, Jake joins a medical practice in his former hometown. Once there, he not only continues to encounter public suspicion, but receives subtle and threatening clues from an unidentified stalker. Are his wife’s death and the stalker’s appearance mere coincidence? Or is someone trying to destroy him completely? In this medical thriller, practicing surgeon and accomplished novelist Harry Kraus uses complex characters, fascinating medical details, and depictions of spiritual warfare to keep readers riveted.

Written and Illustrated by Kristi and T. Lively Fluharty

Fool Moon Rising Through this illustrated tale about the moon stealing the sun’s glory, children learn about the importance of humility and the dangers of pride. This rhyming, rollicking tale tells of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities—the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape throughout each month, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride and changes his ways, and from that point on he is happy to reflect the sun’s light. S a mp l e s p r e a d: 8

Dear God, I heard a cosmic story And I wondered if it’s true. How the moon was stealing glory, And this is what he’d do.

Fool Moon Rising 10 × 9, printed caseside, 40 pages 978‑1‑4335‑0682‑6, $14.99 BISAC: JUVENILE FICTION / Religious / Christian (JUV033010)

Available September 30, 2009 Audience: Children ages 3–7; families who want to teach their children about godly character traits and biblical values

This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of humility to children. Readers will be reminded that everything we have, including our gifts and talents, is from God. Just as the moon learns to boast only of the sun, children—and their parents—learn that to boast of anything other than the Son is utter foolishness.

KRISTI and T. LIVELY FLUHARTY live in Prior Lake, Minnesota,

with their five daughters. T. Lively (Tom) is an accomplished illustrator whose artwork has appeared in such publications as TIME magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Focus on the Family. Kristi holds a BA in technical journalism and currently homeschools their children, teaches Sunday school, and teaches swimming lessons.

Hunter Baker

The End of Secularism This groundbreaking work unearths the failings of secularism as a social policy and proposes a more enduring and positive solution: the institutional separation of church and state. In a world divided by religious pluralism and the concerns it raises within the public square, secularism has been cited by many as the answer. But is it today’s recipe for social harmony and rationality, or a tainted brew that actually deters political and scientific efforts? According to author Hunter Baker, there is only one way to find out: by putting secularism under the microscope and carefully examining its origins, its context, its claims, and the viability of those claims. As Baker makes clear in this groundbreaking book, secularism not only fails to vindicate its various claims but fails as the “only” way to enjoy modernity’s fruits of religious liberty, free speech, and democracy. Yet The End of Secularism does more than just declare secularism’s demise as a useful social construct—it lays out a more positive and enduring solution that every concerned reader needs to consider: the institutional separation of church and state.

Glory Road

The Journeys of 10 African-Americans into Reformed Christianity Ten African-American leaders in the church tell their stories of how they embraced Reformed theology and what effect it has had on their lives and ministries. The ten men who have contributed to this book are often asked, “How did you come to embrace Reformed theology?” With the recent surge in popularity of Reformed theology in the broader evangelical world and the growing interest among African-Americans, it shouldn’t seem curious that more and more African-American churchmen are embracing Reformed theology. But the question remains, and Glory Road provides an answer, using personal accounts tracing their conversion to Christianity, their introduction to and embrace of Reformed theology, and this theology’s effect on their lives and ministries. Ultimately, Glory Road is about the glory of God in providentially bringing men and women to the truths of salvation. In addition to the book’s editor, Anthony J. Carter, Glory Road includes contributions from such notable pastors as Thabiti Anyabwile, Ken Jones, Michael Leach, and Eric Redmond.

ANTHONY J. CARTER is lead pastor of a new church plant, East Point Church, in East Point, Georgia. He earned his MA in biblical studies from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. He is an organizing member of the Council of Reforming Churches and is the author or editor of several books, including On Being Black and Reformed and Experiencing the Truth.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The Gospel in Genesis From Fig Leaves to Faith

If you’ve ever asked, “Why am I the way that I am? Why is life so hard? Is there any hope?” you’ll find answers in Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s study of Genesis. In this series of never-before-published sermons, beloved teacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones walks readers through the early chapters of Genesis. The Gospel in Genesis starts with the fall of man and ends with the call of Abram as it examines portions of chapters 3–12. Along the way Lloyd-Jones talks of serpents and sin, of the Word of God and the Babel of man. But the destination of The Gospel in Genesis is clear: readers will be moved from fig leaves in the garden to faith in the gospel. Thus Lloyd-Jones preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ from the pages of Genesis. These nine sermons will snap nonbelievers out of their apathy toward God and will embolden believers to share the only gospel that provides answers to life’s biggest questions.

Leland Ryken

Understanding English Bible Translation The Case for an Essentially Literal Approach

An expert, up-to-date clarification of the issues underlying modern Bible translation, combined with sound argument for an essentially literal translation philosophy. From the KJV to the NIV, NLT, ESV, and beyond, English Bible translations have never been as plentiful as they are today. This proliferation has also brought confusion regarding translation differences and reliability. This book brings clarity to the issues and makes a strong case for an essentially literal approach. Taking into account the latest developments in Bible translation, Leland Ryken clarifies the issues that underlie modern Bible translation by defining the terms that govern this discipline and offering a helpful Q&A. He then contrasts the two main translation traditions—essentially literal and dynamic equivalence—and concludes with sound reasons for choosing the former, with suggestions for using such a translation in the church. This book will appeal to thoughtful readers who have questions about Bible translation; individuals, churches, and ministries in the process of choosing a translation; and college and seminary students and faculty.

LELAND RYKEN has been professor of English at Wheaton College since 1968. He has written thirty books, including Crossway’s Choosing a Bible and The Word of God in English. He also served as literary stylist for the English Standard Version Bible and as coeditor of the ESV Literary Study Bible.

R. C. Sproul

Defending Your Faith

An Introduction to Apologetics Sproul’s survey of apologetics demonstrates how rational inquiry and empirical research serve to support Christianity’s claims rather than undermine them. Now in paperback. From the classroom to the mainstream media, Christians regularly find their fundamental beliefs discounted by opponents who consider faith to be incompatible with reason. But in this apologetics primer—now in paperback—respected theologian R. C. Sproul sets forth the core claims of the faith to reveal just how rational Christianity is. As Sproul surveys history’s streams of thought, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith and affirms four principles of knowledge that are necessary for all legitimate discussion. He then demonstrates how reason and scientific inquiry serve as allies in defending two of the most strategic priorities of Christian apologetics: the existence of God and the authority of the Bible. Readers who want a convincing, biblical defense of Christianity will find this book useful and an indispensable resource.

R. C. Sproul

Romans Series: St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary Sproul’s sermons at St. Andrew’s Chapel are the foundation of these never-before-published expositions on Paul’s epistle to the Romans. Chrysostom had it read aloud to him once a week. Augustine, Luther, and Wesley all came to assured faith through its impact. The Reformers saw it as the God-given key to understanding the whole of Scripture. Throughout church history the study of the book of Romans has been pivotal to understanding Christian life and doctrine. Convinced that “Paul’s fullest, grandest, most comprehensive statement of the gospel” is just as vital today, R. C. Sproul delivered nearly sixty sermons on Romans from October 2005 to April 2007 at St. Andrew’s Chapel, where he has pastored for more than a decade. These never-before-published expositions are being released in a two-volume hardcover set comprising nearly 1,000 pages of material. Sproul’s passage-by-passage expositions will not only enrich any preaching or teaching ministry but any thoughtful study of this weighty epistle.

For the Children’s Sake

Foundations of Education for Home and School Shows parents and teachers how children’s learning experiences can be extended to every aspect of life, giving them a new richness, stability, and joy for living. Every parent and teacher wants to give his or her children the best education possible. We hope that the education we provide is a joyful adventure, a celebration of life, and preparation for living. But sadly, most education today falls short of this goal. For the Children’s Sake is a book about what education can be, based on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human—to be a child, a parent, a teacher—and on the Christian meaning of life. The central ideas have been proven over many years and in almost every kind of educational situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have implemented in their own family and school experience. For the Children’s Sake will benefit parents and teachers in any educational setting—homeschooling, public school, or private school. This new edition features an updated cover design.
