Kevin DeYoung, ed.

Don’t Call It a Comeback The Old Faith for a New Day (Foreword by D. A. Carson) Some of today’s most influential young evangelicals outline the relevance and theological foundations of Christian orthodoxy and evangelicalism. Recent cultural interest in evangelicalism has led to confusion about what the term actually means. Many young Christians are tempted to discard the label altogether. But evangelicalism is not merely a political movement in decline or a sociological phenomenon on the rise, as it has sometimes been portrayed. It is, in fact, a helpful theological profile that manifests itself in beliefs, ethics, and church life. DeYoung and other key twenty- and thirty-something evangelical Christian leaders assert the stability, relevance, and necessity of Christian orthodoxy today. This book introduces young, new, and underdiscipled Christians to the most essential and basic issues of faith in general and of evangelicalism in particular. Kevin DeYoung and contributors like Russell Moore, Tullian Tchividjian, Darrin Patrick, Justin Taylor, Thabiti Anyabwile, and Tim Challies examine evangelical Christianity within the categories of history, theology, and practice. They demonstrate that evangelicalism is biblically and historically rooted and remains the same framework for faith that we need today. KEVIN DEYOUNG (MDiv, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is senior pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan. He is the author of several popular books, including Just Do Something and Why We Love the Church. DeYoung leads a renewal group in the Reformed Church in America called RCA Integrity.

June Hunt

Hope for Your Heart Finding Strength in Life’s Storms A respected author and counselor teaches what the Bible says about hope and emphasizes its power to heal the broken. Hope is one of the prominent themes of the Bible. Despite Scripture’s teaching on the subject, however, the true, biblical meaning of hope is often misunderstood or reduced to mere sentimentalism. Respected author and counselor June Hunt champions the healing power of hope. Stemming from Hunt’s ministry, Hope for the Heart, this book speaks on a subject central to her calling. She explains how hope is much more than a vague emotion and specifies the ways it has the power to change lives. Shunning pop psychology and shallow inspirationalism, she instead consistently and faithfully looks at what the Bible says about hope. Each chapter flows from a central Scripture passage and is illustrated by real-life stories. Those experiencing brokenness and hurt will find encouragement and healing as they encounter the hope of the Bible. Written from a counselor’s heart, this book will also benefit pastors and others engaged in counseling ministry.

Russell D. Moore

Tempted and Tried Temptation and the Triumph of Christ Describes the broader spiritual context of temptation as a war and leads believers to a rich understanding of the triumph they have in Christ. Although temptation is a common and well-acknowledged part of the human experience, few realize the truth behind temptation and fewer still know how to defeat it. Tempted and Tried will not reassure Christians by claiming that temptation is less powerful or less prevalent than it is; instead, it will prepare believers for battle by telling the truth about the cosmic war that is raging. Moore shows that the temptation of every Christian is part of a broader conspiracy against God, a conspiracy that confronts everyone who shares the flesh of Jesus through human birth and especially confronts those who share the Spirit of Christ through the new birth of redemption. Moore walks readers through the Devil’s ancient strategies for temptation revealed in Jesus’ wilderness testing. Moore considers how those strategies might appear in a contemporary context and points readers to a way of escape. Tempted and Tried will remind Christians that temptation must be understood in terms of warfare, encouraging them with the truth that victory has already been secured through the triumph of Christ.

RUSSELL D. MOORE is dean of the School of Theology and senior vice president for academic administration at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also serves as a preaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church’s Fegenbush location and is the author of The Kingdom of Christ and Adopted for Life.

John Piper

God Is the Gospel Meditations on God’s Love as the Gift of Himself (Paperback Edition) Piper passionately argues that the good news of the gospel is that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God himself. Too often we reduce the gospel to being a free ticket to heaven or a key to spiritual blessings. But the good news of Jesus Christ is deeper, more profound, and more wonderful than we realize. The wonder and majesty of the gospel are that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God himself. Piper unpacks the gospel to show that none of Christ’s gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as a means of exalting the glory of Christ. Biblically faithful and radically God-centered, this book leads to satisfaction for the deep hungers of the soul. The glorious truth that God is the gospel touches us at the root of life where practical transformation gets its daily power. It awakens our longing for Christ and opens our eyes to his beauty. Join Piper as he leads us to worship and treasure Christ, the ultimate gift of the gospel. Now available in paperback.

John Piper

What Jesus Demands from the World (Paperback Edition) Piper’s examination of Jesus’ demands in the Gospels helps us to see the loving concern of our Savior in a redemptivehistorical context. The four Gospels are filled with demands from Jesus. These demands are Jesus’ way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not harsh demands originating from a selfish desire to control, but rather loving directions for our good and ultimate satisfaction. In fact, what Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as: “Trust and treasure me above all.” This is good news! In What Jesus Demands from the World, John Piper looks at the demands of Jesus as found in the four Gospels. He begins with an introduction that puts the demands in a redemptive-historical context, then engages in a concise examination of each. The result is an accessible introduction for thoughtful inquirers and new believers, as well as a refreshing reminder for more mature believers of God’s plan for his Son’s glory and our good. Now available in paperback.

Contending for Our All Defending Truth and Treasuring Christ in the Lives of Athanasius, John Owen, and J. Gresham Machen (Paperback Edition) Series: The Swans Are Not Silent Piper’s brief biographies of Athanasius, Owen, and Machen tell the stories of great men who passionately defended the truth of the gospel, despite many struggles and much suffering. Athanasius, John Owen, and J. Gresham Machen stood for the truth of God’s Word in the face of opposition—all out of a deep love for Christ and a desire for others to know God in his fullness. These men were willing to suffer for the sake of guarding the sanctity of the gospel. They faced many threats, years of exile, the deaths of loved ones, opposition from friends and authorities, and sickness and pain. Yet they passionately maintained their zeal for Christ himself and steadfastly defended the gospel. In this fourth book of The Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper delivers concise biographies of these great men. He shows how a bishop, pastor, and seminary founder each emulated personal holiness, despite adversity and affliction. Readers will be encouraged and emboldened from the stories of these soldiers who defended truth for the sake of the cross. Now available in paperback.

Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears

Vintage Jesus Timeless Answers to Timely Questions (Paperback Edition) Series: Re:Lit:Vintage Jesus Honest and straightforward, this acclaimed work of popularlevel theology introduces the person and work of Christ by answering a series of questions about Jesus. While misdirected speculation and lies about Jesus have permeated popular culture and even the academy over the years, the truth about his character, nature, and work has not changed. So what exactly is the truth about Jesus Christ? That’s the question the authors of Vintage Jesus answer by looking at a number of sub-questions about Jesus, including: “Is Jesus the only God?” “Why did Jesus come to earth?” “Did Jesus rise from death?” “Why should we worship Jesus?” and others. Through Scripture and carefully formed arguments, Driscoll and Breshears present the Jesus Christ of the Bible as the sinless Son of God, at once fully human and fully divine, and our substitutionary atonement. Nonbelievers and new Christians will find solid, biblical answers to their most honest, difficult questions about Jesus, presented in a relevant and accessible way. Now available in paperback.

Redemption Freed by Jesus from the Idols We Worship and the Wounds We Carry Series: Re:Lit Shows how the story of the Israelites’ redemption from their idols illuminates our own story of idols and redemption in Christ. Exodus is a real story about a difficult journey down a long road—a story about God’s plan for redemption. Most Christians don’t worship golden idols as the Israelites did after coming out of Egypt, but we do set up idols on our own desert road—idols like substance abuse, pornography, gluttony, and rage. And we suffer at the hands of our idols as well as those created by others. We need more than deliverance from our trouble—we need to be set free from sin and its effects. Redemption is not a step-oriented recovery book; it’s story-oriented and Bible-anchored. It unfolds the back-story of redemption in Exodus to help Christians better understand how Christ redeems us from the slavery of abuse and addiction and restores us to our created purpose, the worship of God. Readers will discover that the reward of freedom is more than victory over a habitual sin or release from shame; it is satisfaction and rest in God himself. Part of the Re:Lit series.

Rid of My Disgrace Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault (Foreword by Mark Driscoll) Series: Re:Lit A theologically robust and compassionate resource to help victims of sexual assault move from brokenness to healing. One in four women and one in six men have been sexually assaulted. But as sobering as these statistics are, they can’t begin to speak to the darkness and grief experienced by these victims. The church needs compassionate and wise resources to care for those living in the wake of this evil. Other books attempt to address the journey from shame to healing for victims of sexual abuse, but few are from a Christian perspective and written for adult victims. In Rid of My Disgrace, a couple experienced in counseling and care for victims of sexual assault present the gospel in its power to heal the broken and restore the disgraced. Justin and Lindsey Holcomb present a clear definition of sexual assault and outline a biblical process for moving from destruction to redemption. Rid of My Disgrace applies a theology of redemption to the grief, shame, and sense of defilement victims experience. This book is primarily written for them, but also equips pastors and others to respond compassionately to those who have been assaulted. Part of the Re:Lit series.

LINDSEY A. HOLCOMB is a deacon at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, where she provides counseling for victims of sexual assault and trains leaders to care for victims of sexual assault. JUSTIN S.

The Legacy of the King James Bible Celebrating 400 Years of the Most Influential English Translation Celebrates the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible by tracing the history and unrivaled influence of the most celebrated Bible translation of all time. Originally published in 1611, the King James Bible (KJB) remains the most recognizable piece of literature in the English-speaking world today. For over three centuries, it served as the standard English Bible and has, as such, exerted unparalleled influence on English and American culture in nearly every sphere—including education, law, literature, government, art, science, and religion. The Legacy of the King James Bible honors the 400th anniversary of the KJB’s publication by telling its story. Leland Ryken, an expert on the Bible as literature, explores the excellence of the King James Bible by examining its status as the climax of a century of English Bible translations, its impression on the subsequent history of Bible translation, its inherent literary excellence, and its overall impact on English and American literature and culture. This book will shed new light on the depth of the translation’s merit and influence and offer insight as to what its role may be in the next 400 years.

Nancy Guthrie, Ed.

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go Facing Death with Courageous Confidence in God Essays from twenty-two classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers re-frame death in a scriptural context of hope in God. For many modern-day Christians, death has become what J. I. Packer terms “the great unmentionable.” This attitude denies not only the reality of the human condition, but also the reality of God’s promises for believers beyond this life. The church needs to think more about death in the light of the gospel. This compilation, edited by Nancy Guthrie, includes the writings of twenty-two classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers on how to prepare to die in faith. The short meditations are drawn from sermons, books, and other writings of classic theologians such as Jonathan Edwards and John Calvin, and of leading contemporary communicators such as John Piper, Tim Keller, J. I. Packer, and others. The writers provide a solidly scriptural and countercultural way to view the inevitability of death, explaining how and why believers can face physical death with hope, joy, and confidence in God’s promises for the life to come.

NANCY GUTHRIE has a passion for sharing God’s Word through her growing national and international Bible teaching ministry. She has worked in the Christian publishing industry for over two decades and is the author of several books, including Holding On to Hope, Hoping for Something Better, and this volume’s companion, Be Still My Soul (on suffering).

John S. Feinberg and Paul D. Feinberg

Ethics for a Brave New World 2nd Edition (Updated and Expanded) This updated and expanded second edition analyzes the current literature regarding various ethical issues. Aldous Huxley’s 1932 book Brave New World foresees a world in which technological advances have obliterated morality and freedom. John Feinberg and Paul Feinberg noted how Huxley landed frighteningly close to the truth in the first edition of Ethics for a Brave New World. Their book responded to ethical crises such as abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, and genetic engineering by looking to Scripture for principles to guide us through the moral quagmires of our time. Now dramatically updated and expanded, this edition of Ethics for a Brave New World seeks to maintain the relevance, rigorous scholarship, and biblical faithfulness of the first edition. While many of the topics covered in the book remain the same, John Feinberg has revised each chapter to keep it current with contemporary trends and to respond to the most recent scholarship. There is a new chapter on stem cell research and greatly expanded material on issues such as homosexuality and genetic engineering. This important resource will be a valuable guide for students and those seeking answers to ethical dilemmas.

R. C. Sproul

Acts Series: St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary R. C. Sproul’s expositional sermons on the book of Acts offer application and pastoral wisdom to the story of the gospel spreading to the nations. In 1997 scholar and teacher R. C. Sproul was called to the pulpit of St. Andrews Chapel in Sanford, Florida. The published collections of his sermons, the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series, are the result of years of careful preparation and weekly, Bible-centered preaching. In this volume, readers will follow Sproul as he preaches through the book of Acts. The account of the gospel spreading to the Gentiles is the story of the roots of our faith. By God’s grace and the labor of Paul and the apostles, salvation has spread to all the nations. Balancing broad and narrow perspectives of each passage, Sproul explores important theological terms and themes, offers perspective from his own wisdom and experience, and engages in practical application. Delivered from a pastor’s heart for his congregation, readers will find Acts readable, applicable, appropriately paced, and thoroughly Biblecentered. Here is an opportunity to sit at the feet of an eminent theologian and teacher, encountering the Word of God.

R. C. SPROUL serves as senior minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida, and is the founder and president of Ligonier Ministries.

John Dunlop, MD

Finishing Well to the Glory of God Strategies from a Christian Physician A well-respected, experienced medical doctor outlines biblical teaching and practical strategies for those facing end-oflife realities and for their families. Most people want to finish life well, yet so few take the time necessary to carefully think through what that entails. Some say it means contentment, happiness, and freedom from pain. Many desire to simply maintain their dignity and enjoy their family and loved ones. These are reasonable goals; yet, there is a more profound, uniquely Christian approach to the end of life. John Dunlop, a medical doctor who has practiced for over thirty years and specializes in geriatrics, combines his medical expertise, firsthand experience with patients, and firm commitment to Scripture to propose nine strategies for finishing life well. He shows how with proper physical, emotional, and spiritual preparation, aging and death need not be a fight to the finish but a purposeful resting in the arms of the Savior. Theologically robust and practically relevant, this book will prove to be a sensitive and helpful resource for anyone facing end-of-life issues.

C. J. Mahaney

Don’t Waste Your Sports A concise booklet encouraging Christian athletes to see sports as a true gift from God, created for his glory. “Why is it that sports seem to bring out the best and the worst in us?” asks author C. J. Mahaney. “Sports are a gift from God. But as soon as you introduce the human heart, things get complicated.” For the Christian athlete, sports are one of the key battlegrounds in which pride and self-glory are regular temptations. If sports are indeed a gift from God, why are playing fields and courts so often arenas for our egos? How are we to enjoy sports in a godly way? Self-described “pastor athlete” C. J. Mahaney looks to Scripture for principles that speak to the role of sports in our lives. This booklet outlines how Christian athletes are to play for the glory of God and model gratitude, humility, and service. With candor and humor, Mahaney recounts his own story with sports and through illustrations and practical applications exhorts athletes not to waste their sports. The booklet concludes with application questions and an addendum to parents. A great gift for Christian athletes, these booklets are also sold in packs of twelve.

C. J. MAHANEY is the president of Sovereign Grace Ministries. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including Worldliness and Sex, Romance, and the Glory of God. Mahaney has been a life-long fan of University of Maryland basketball.

T. D. Alexander

Discovering Jesus Why Four Gospels to Portray One Person? An introductory guide to the four Gospels, showing how each differs in what it emphasizes about the nature and ministry of Jesus Christ. If asked how Matthew’s Gospel differs from Luke’s, or what aspects of Jesus’ personhood and ministry the Gospel of Mark focuses on compared to those of John, how would you answer? In Discovering Jesus, T. D. Alexander sets out to help readers understand how each Gospel account is uniquely written and why all four are important for having a rich picture of the person of Jesus Christ. Alexander guides readers to see how the Gospels display Jesus as the Son of David who establishes the kingdom of God, the Son of God who suffers to ransom others, the Savior of the world who seeks the lost, and the Lamb of God who brings eternal life through a new exodus. Each chapter ends with discussion questions for individual or group study.

Josh Moody

No Other Gospel 31 Reasons from Galatians Why Justification by Faith Alone Is the Only Gospel Pastor Josh Moody presents the true gospel as revealed in the book of Galatians. As fallen human beings we are quick to deviate from the true gospel, for, as Pastor Josh Moody writes, “we tend toward human gospels.” Believers must constantly battle to maintain the purity and simplicity of the gospel. Paul was acutely aware of this as he wrote his letter to the Galatians. He was writing to an established church—experienced believers who had started to slip in their gospel witness. Moody finds in Galatians particular relevance and parallels to many churches today. Stemming from a series of sermons delivered to his church, he examines thirty-one reasons Paul gives for this gospel. Moody writes this book with a pastor’s heart, addressing important topics such as “The Gospel Not Moralism” and “The Use of Gospel Freedom.” Paul’s message is foundational to the Christian faith, and thoughtful readers will benefit from Moody’s exposition.

JOSH MOODY (PhD, Cambridge University) is senior pastor of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the author of several books, including The God-Centered Life: Insights from Jonathan Edwards.

Carl R. Trueman

Histories and Fallacies Problems Faced in the Writing of History Countering current historical skepticism, a historian uses case studies to guide readers to a new confidence in and understanding of historical inquiry. Recent years have brought about a crisis of confidence in the historical profession, leading increasing numbers of readers to ask the question: “How can I know that the stories told by a historian are reliable?” Histories and Fallacies is a primer for those seeking guidance through conceptual and methodological problems in the discipline of history. Historian Carl Trueman presents a series of classic historical problems as a way to examine what history is, what it means, and how it can be told and understood. Each chapter in Histories and Fallacies gives an account of a particular problem, examines a classic example of that problem, and then suggests a solution or approach that will bear fruit. Readers who come to understand the question of objectivity through an examination of Holocaust denial or interpretive frameworks through Marxism will not just be learning theory but will already be practicing fruitful approaches to history. Histories and Fallacies guides both readers and writers of history away from dead ends and methodological mistakes, and into a fresh confidence in the productive nature of the historical task.

Rediscovering the Church Fathers Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church An introduction to sixteen church fathers, outlining their roles in church history and their teaching on a number of topics. While the church today looks quite different than it did two thousand years ago, Christians share the same faith with the church fathers. Although separated by time and culture, we have much to learn from their lives and teaching. This book is an organized and convenient introduction to the church fathers from ad 100 to 500. Michael Haykin surveys the lives and teachings of sixteen Fathers, looking at their role in such issues as determining the canon and their teaching on topics such as martyrdom and the relationship between church and state. Ignatius, Cyprian, Athanasius, Origen, and others were foundational in the growth and purity of early Christianity, and their impact continues to shape the church today. Evangelical readers interested in the historical roots of Christianity will find this to be a helpful introductory volume.

Faithfulness and Holiness The Witness of J. C. Ryle (Including the Full Text of the First Edition of Ryle’s Classic Book, Holiness) (Redesign) As heir to a fortune, John Charles Ryle had a hopeful future in Britain’s Parliament—until the day his father declared bankruptcy. And yet, had this not happened, J. C. Ryle would likely not have become one of the most influential evangelical leaders of the nineteenth century. Presented here is a newly repackaged and republished edition of J. I. Packer’s biography of the life of J. C. Ryle alongside the great preacher’s classic work Holiness. Admiring Ryle’s passion for God’s Word, Packer aims to open up the life of this godly man for a contemporary audience.
