Are you one of those people who nod their heads in agreement when the preacher reminds us that we need to evangelize only to feel guilty when you consider how long it's been since you did your bit? While all evangelical Christians will agree on the need for Christians to evangelize turning good intention into action can often be a problem. In a society that veers between the extremes of apathy towards things spiritual and a mindless pursuit of empty, inane, New Age spirituality, how can we make that first step and tell people of the Good News of the Gospel. Learning about Evangelism is a practical handbook and encouragement for all Christians needing help to share their faith with their friends. Mike Hencher speaks from years of experience as a "professional evangelist", but recognizes that the gospel is spoken most loudly by the people who walk the talk and live it out.

For each of us, there comes a time in our lives when we want to know God's grace. But for some people, the gospel message of Christ's atoning sacrifice sounds too good to be true. Forgiveness is God's great work because it is all-inclusive and everlasting. In this book, John Ensor helps his readers understand the human experience of God's ongoing, outworking grace.

Evangelism shouldn't be an impromptu event, cropping up only infrequently - and awkwardly even then - and timidly supportive of any inclination to religion or spirituality that the other person holds. As Christians, this should be an appalling representation of our Great Commission. Christians should be bold about the Gospel with other Christians as well as sinners, praying and planning and working together to bring the Gospel more into our lives as well as the lives of those around us. In The Gospel & Personal Evangelism Mark Dever has written a book, both instructive and encouraging, for all Christians in the same spirit that he motivates us to move towards.

In about a hundred pages, Dever discusses modern apprehensions towards evangelism, what the Gospel and evangelism are (and are not), who, how and why we should evangelize, and what we should do after presenting the Gospel. He minces no words, stripping his message down to the basics, and covers the topics thoroughly while leaving nuances and theory to other writers. Depth isn't his intention here, as the subject is already incredibly deep. This is for those of us who have the knowledge of the mandate to evangelize, recognize the persuasion of the Holy Spirit to do so, and have enough compassion for a fallen world to impel us to follow His leading.

No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us---until we believe that God is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of God's superior promises in the gospel can emancipate our hearts from servitude to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin.

Pastor John Piper shows how to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust.

Delighting in the bounty of God's glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this book aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.

NOTE: This book is comprised of the eight application chapters from Piper's Future Grace.

Christian unity is important. And unity in the gospel is essential. Yet that unity was tested by the release of two documents. Evangelicals and Catholics Together and The Gift of Salvation, which appeared to surrender the doctrine of sola fide (faith alone). Then a new level of unity was achieved with the release of a statement called The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.

This sequel to Sproul's popular Faith Alone includes the complete text of The Gospel of Jesus Christ along with thorough, point-by-point discussion and exposition. The significance of this latter affirmation is summed up by Christianity Today which noted that "a number of people have been stunned by the broad acceptance of this statement." It has been signed by "Methodist and Presbyterian, Pentecostal and cessationist, Baptist, Lutheran, Anglican and free church" leaders.

As Sproul explains, unity in the gospel touches the soul of the church itself and all of its members. "To be faithful to the Great Commission," writes Sproul, "we must get the gospel right."

Ever since the days of the apostles Paul and James, who seemed to be in contradiction, Christians have struggled to define the proper tension between faith and works. Salvation, Paul stresses, is "not by works, so that no one can boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9). But James argues, "Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works" (James 2:18). In clear and compelling terms, best-selling author John MacArthur reconciles these two seemingly divergent threads of biblical truth, addressing the difficult questions head on: What is cheap grace?; Have some Christians adopted a "no-lordship" theology?; What must a person do to be considered righteous by God?; Do your works have any affect on your salvation.

It was once said that most of the beds in mental hospitals could be emptied if people could find forgiveness. Thankfully, Psalm 130:4 tells us, "there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared." There is a parton for the penitent, and therein is the good news of the gospel. In this scarce Puritan work based on Psalm 32:5, Christopher Love, a 17th century London preacher, explains the duty of Christians to confess their sins and the faithfulness of God to forgive them. And, as the psalmist said, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity." (Psalm 32:2).

Since preaching is God's ordained means of disseminating truth, it is vital that Bible teachers preach well and congregations to listen well. This study of Jesus Christ's preaching will assist both the preacher and the congregation in their quests to honor the Lord with their respective responsibilities in worship.

While there are many definitions and descriptions of preaching today, preaching like Jesus must be the unchanging standard for all who dare teach the Bible. Preaching fads come and go, yet the manner and method of the Lord's preaching is always relevant, right and worthy to be emulated.

Life is uncertain! But in an ever-changing, tumultuous world there are still some things that have the mark of authenticity. JD Wetterling focuses on six of them from the mouth of Jesus that profoundly affect anyone regardless of race or religion (or lack of it!).

What are these unshakable truths? They are found in John's Gospel---and turn out to be profound revelations from the Son of God's own lips.

  • No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3:3)
  • No one can come to me unless the Father Who sent me draws him (John 6:44).
  • No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).
  • No one takes it (life) from me, but I lay it down of my own accord (John 10:18).
  • No one can snatch them [true Christians] out of my hand (John 10:28).
  • No one will take away your joy (John 16:22b).
The cultural epidemic of today's post-modern thought provokes a common disregard for the idea of absolute truth---people say that your truth is fine for you but mine is fine for me also---but no truth covers us both. Yet, the biblical statements examined here by Wetterling show that truth can be absolute, and forever.

"No one is a more convincing advocate of the Gospel than a man deeply in love with the Savior, his Word and his world. JD Wetterling writes with a passion for each that no one can miss, nor should."
-Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri

JD Wetterling is a former military hero and entrepreneur. Currently, he manages a Christian conference center in North Carolina.

John Bunyan confessed himself to have been one of the worst sinners to have ever walked God's earth. After his conversion to Jesus Christ, he was constantly amazed by the fact that the God of infinite grace should have saved him from his sin. As a minister of the Gospel, he loved to proclaim the grace of God to sinners and earnestly persuaded his hearers to embrace by faith the Lord Jesus Christ in whom is found the free pardon of all our sins.

Published by Bunyan in the year of his death (1688), this little book brings together the fruit of his thinking on the grace of forgiveness. With the warmth and fervency of spirit of a true evangelist, he beautifully unfolds the riches of God's grace and mercy to the greatest of sinners. Here, as the subtitle of the book says, is 'Good News for the Vilest of Men'!

Every generation of Christian believers faces the challenge of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ with integrity and in conformity to the teaching of the Scriptures. But what do the Scriptures teach with regard to the central message of the gospel? Were the Reformers correct to insist that the good news of God's gracious and free acceptance of guilty sinners, on the basis of the obedience and atoning sacrifice of Christ, lies at the heart of the gospel? Or are we to accept the 'new perspectives' on Paul's teaching, which hav e been advocated in recent years by those who have made a fresh study of the relevant historical sources? Since the new perspectives challenge some of the basic features of the traditional Protestant understanding of justification, they require careful study and thoughtful evaluation. Nothing less than the shape of the evangelical church's proclamation of the gospel today is at stake.

This book has been written out of the conviction that Protestant churches need to reacquaint themselves with their rich doctrinal heritage, particularly their understanding of the gospel "the good news of free acceptance with God on the basis of Christ's" redeeming work. Before abandoning the "older perspective"on Paul in favor of the new, evangelical Christians must un derstand exactly what it is they are being asked to abandon. The newer perspective on Paul demands careful study and assessment, for at stake is nothing less than the gospel itself. This study features a summary of the older perspective of the Reformation, a general introduction to what is known as the "new perspective" on Paul, and a critical assessment of new perspective claims from both a biblical and a theological standpoint.

The atonement is the centre of the Christian faith and of the work of the gospel ministry. The purpose of gospel preaching is to make known what God has done in the cross of Jesus Christ. The evangel is 'the preaching of the cross' (1 Cor. 1:18).

If this was apostolic Christianity then we must examine ourselves as to whether our emphasis corresponds with it. Is the cross central to the message we preach in our evangelism?

But how are we to preach the cross? Does our preaching resemble that of the NT apostles? Does it match the passionate freeness with which the church's greatest evangelists preached the cross to needy sinners?

In this booklet, Iain Murray helps us to think through the message of the cross, to appreciate God's love and justice in the death of Christ, and to grasp the truth afresh that 'by Christ crucified the love of God and his willingness to save is to be made known to all people.'

This book draws on C.F.W. Walther's Law and Gospel theses to present and apply these foundational truths to contemporary Christian faith and living.

In 13 chapters, the author explores the rich insights in Walther's classic text, blending key excerpts with his own reflection and exposition. The author opens his pastoral heart and shares his experiences and understanding of God's Word to help Christians appreciate - and live in - the rhythm of repentance and faith, of genuine sorrow over sin and heartfelt trust in Christ.

This book is a dialogue with Walther's text and a fresh exposition of Law and Gospel for modern Christians. The author helps believers to read, understand, and apply God's Word to life's many circumstances through reflection and discussion.

This book incorporates questions for personal reflection or group discussion. It uses Walther's The Proper Distinction between Law and Gospel as the foundation for the discussion.

When Christ asked Peter, "Who do men say that I am?" He understood that opinions are as varied as the men who hold them. But the only trustworthy knowledge of God comes from God Himself. Only God's revelation of Himself is infallible; only that revelation can be trusted to save a sin-sick soul.

In the last of the "gospel" series, Jeremiah Burroughs gives us God's revelation regarding Himself and regarding His Son, Jesus Christ. And then he gives precious insight into the worth of the human soul, created by God to joyously serve and glorify Him. Sin debases a man, but a right relationship to God elevates him to the position of worth and dignity God gave him at first. True Christians can revel in this revelation.

What is the gospel? What does scripture mean by salvation? What gospel has been consistently taught by the Reformers and those following in their steps? Such fundamental questions are adressed in this powerfull new book.

In a day when the essential message of the gospel is being assaulted by either Legalism or Antinomianism -Evangelical protestantism, which claims the heritage of the Reformation, is in danger of repudiating its history by embracing a gospel that fundamentally denies the message of the Reformers.

Debates on Catholicism and lordship salvation underscore the rampant confusion within evangelicalism over the precise meanings of salvation, justification and saving faith. This book clarifies the issues by clearly setting forth the biblical Reformation teachings of the gospel and savation. Softcover, 202 pages.

There was considerable conflict between the Jews and Gentiles at the church in Rome over theology. Jewish Christians were proud of their favored status before God, and the Gentile Christians of their freedom from the law. In his ministry of reconciliation, Paul develops two thems. The first is the justification of guilty sinners by God's grace alone in Christ. The second is that the people of God are no longer defined by descent, circumcision or culture, but according to faith in Jesus. So "there is no difference" now between Jews and Gentiles (Romans 3:22). The call to unity is just as relevant to us today as we continue to face tensions in the body of Christ. May we hear and respond to God's call to us in Romans.

20 lessons under the guidance of one of the world's leading and most loved Bible teachers and preachers, John Stott, include inductive study, application, commentary, prayer helps, and leader guidelines. The corresponding commentary by Stott in The Bible Speaks Today series is WW12460.

This devotional tapestry of articles published earlier in Tabletalk magazine and Eternity Magazine, is designed to help believers gain a better understanding of their Savior and the Christian faith, and to live out that faith in their day-to-day lives. In fifty short chapters arranged in six sections, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson shows that Christ, who is fully God, took on humanity that He might be the Great High Priest of His people as well as the once-for-all sacrifice; that He now ministers to His people through His Spirit, crowning them with great and precious blessings; and that believers are called to duty, from cultivating contentment to mortifying sin. In Christ Alone packed full of nuggets of Scriptural truth that will spark and fan the flames of the believer's love for the Savior, and deepen their understanding of basic Christian doctrine.

Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson is senior minister of the historic First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and a distinguished visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas.
