Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 8.45.24 AMFree for Kindle for a limited time: Partakers of Grace: A Commentary on 1 Corinthians by Douglas Wilson

A New Testament Church means New Testament snarls.

Prostitution, incest, drunkenness at the Lord’s table, sectarianism, and babble all were problems in Paul’s rag-tag startup church in Corinth. Paul’s letter was a course-correction for many in the church, bringing people back to the Gospel as the basis for right unity, sexual ethics, observation of the sacraments, and worship.

This commentary works through this deep and sometimes confusing letter verse by verse, unpacking the details and making applications. Yes, even on the headcoverings.

Guidance and the Voice of God by Phillip Jensen and Tony Payne

How do I know what God wants me to do? How can I make decisions which are in line with his will? If God still speaks, will I recognize his voice?

These are important questions, and many Christians grapple with them.

Guidance and the Voice of God charts a way through these often confusing issues, and shows how for those who have ears to hear, God is still speaking loud and clear through his Son.

This book is part of our Guidebooks for Life series. Like other titles in the series, it covers an important issue of the Christian life in an accessible and straightforward way.

Do we need to save the planet? Is the future of our world at stake? It’s hard to escape questions like this in the media and the wider world these days. How would you answer them?

Does he care about the world and what we do with it? Is God green?

In this short book, Lionel Windsor takes us through what the Bible says about the environment. You’ll discover what God has to say about:

• why the world is in a mess
• where the world is headed

Walking in the Power of the Spirit: Ten Classic Sermons by Charles H. Spurgeon

Read the foreword by J.A. Medders below:


When is the last time you thought about the Holy Spirit?

Asked the Spirit to help you? Contemplated the Spirit’s power in your prayers? Believed the Holy Spirit was enabling you to turn from sin? Discerned him prompting you to evangelize? Realized him quickening your heart for Christ? Noticed the Spirit of Christ illuminating your heart and mind as you sat with coffee at your side and a double-edged sword shimmering in your hands?

Dear Christian, the Spirit is at work in you. Don’t be discouraged. You may feel like God is sick and tired of waiting for you to get it together. Well, remember that the fruit of the Spirit is also a description of the Spirit himself. He is loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and in control. You are in good hands. Patient and gentle hands. Keep up (Galatians 5:25). Like a kind older brother grinning and motioning to his slow-witted sibling, “Come on, bud, keep up.” That’s us. And that’s a safe place to be because it’s with God.

Charles Spurgeon understood the Sprit’s role in the Christian life. He was eager for the Spirit’s work in his life and ministry. “Without the Spirit of God we can do nothing. We are as ships without wind or chariots without steeds. Like branches without sap, we are withered. Like coals without fire, we are useless.” O, how we need the Spirit! Just think: How will we turn from sin, love our brothers and sisters and Christ—and our enemies—serve the church, evangelize the lost, raise our children, pursue godliness, and lean into the glory to be revealed? By the indwelling, filling, and anointing of the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit prompts and empowers disciples of the risen Christ for our long pilgrimage toward glory. Every step of the way, he’s with us—ministering to us, encouraging us, correcting us, and transforming us more into the image of the Lord Jesus. As you read these sermons from Spurgeon, don’t settle for a meeting with the mind of Spurgeon. No, no—seek the Spirit. Seek the work of God in your life. That’s why Spurgeon preached these words, so sinners like you and me could rest and run in the high-voltage work of God. Keep up.

— J.A. Medders, Pastor, Author, Humble Calvinism

Description of The Essentials of Prayer

And the very God of peace sanctify you completely, that your spirit, soul, and body be preserved whole without reprehension for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

Christians who pray well, who bring the largest things to pass, and who move God to do great things, are those who are entirely given over to God in their praying. God wants, and must have, all that there is in us. We must be wholehearted people through whom he can work out his purposes and plans concerning us. God must have us in our entirety. No double-minded people need apply. No vacillating person can be used. No person with a divided allegiance to God, the world, and self can do the praying that is needed. Holiness is wholeness, and so God wants holy people – wholehearted and true – for his service and for the work of praying.

This book challenges the reader to first make sure he is ready to pray, and it also shows from Scripture when and how we ought to pray. E. M. Bounds examines the lack of prayer and its causes, but he also includes examples of answered prayer to give hope to those who feel like their prayers aren’t being answered. Some may experience guilt for their lack and inconsistency of prayer, but sincere Christians will also be stirred in their heart to pray, and to pray well.
