Overview

Take another look at the key characters of the Bible! The four-volume Face2Face Collection Upgrade offers accessible introductions to important biblical figures. Each book covers the major events that shape the lives of Daniel, Ezra, Joseph, and Judas, and connects the ways God worked through great people in the Bible to the ways God works today. These books are not merely historical overviews; they also reveal how everyone—both then and now—fits into God’s plan.

Each book in the Face2face Collection Upgrade is well-organized, clearly and concisely written, and includes discussion questions for further reflection and study. The Face2face Collection is ideal for readers seeking in-depth study and for those encountering major biblical characters for the first time.

Praise for the Print Edition

I continue to be thankful for the publications of Day One. They are biblical; they have sound theology; and they are relative to the issues at hand. The material is condensed and manageable while, at the same time, being complete—a challenging balance to find. We are happy in our ministry to make use of these excellent publications.

John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, California

Individual Titles

Daniel: Encountering the Jerusalem Exile Living in a Babylon World

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 86

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

At an early age, Daniel was taken from the city of Jerusalem to live the remainder of his days in Babylon. But while living in Babylon, Daniel continued to live for Jerusalem. In Babylon, he lived for the God of grace he had come to know in Jerusalem. Going face to face with Daniel requires Christians to go face to face with this piercing question: are we willing to live for God while we live in a world that is opposed to God?

Every Christian who has longed for heaven has lamented still living in Babylon. Roger Ellsworth not only brings us face to face with Daniel the prophet, but points us hopefully to the heavenly Jerusalem. Faithful to the text and immensely practical, this book teaches us how to live for the glory of God in a corrupt world.

—C. Ben Mitchell, Graves Professor of Moral Philosophy, Union University, Jackson, Tennessee

Daniel is one of the great heroes of the Bible. In a time of great uncertainty and difficulty, he shines forth as one who worships the only true God. In this book, Roger Ellsworth excels in drawing out the practical nature of Daniel’s faith, how he dealt with real life situations and put the Living God at the very center of everything. This is a book for everyone, for we all need to be reminded what it means to stand firm and live for the Glory of God. Read this book! You will be greatly blessed.

—David Clark, joint editor, Christian Hymns

Roger Ellsworth is currently the pastor of Parkview Baptist Church, Jackson, Tennessee. He is the author of well over thirty books, including many titles published by Day One.

Ezra: Encountering God's Revival Man

  • Author: Chris Hughes
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 106

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

We are no longer in the world in which Ezra lived: we no longer have God revealing his hand at work with canonical authority. However, like Ezra, we do have God's revelation of the future unfolding of history which, like the promises made through Jeremiah, reveal how his plans and purposes are being and will be worked out until the time comes for the world in which we live to be made new: with a new heaven and a new earth.

Come face to face with this remarkable man; learn important lessons from his life and experiences; and then go and live them out in the real world!

The neglected Bible includes books like Ezra. Tucked away in the Old Testament is a record of how a largely unseen God moves through world events, demonstrating that he is mighty to save. Chris Hughes has worked to understand and apply the message of a book that does not need to remain neglected.

—Declan Flanagan, Chief Executive, Rural Ministries

Can God be trusted? That's one of the ultimate questions for people exploring the Christian faith. In short pithy chapters, Chris Hughes shows us that God is working it all out according to plan—his story and ours. And he does it through ordinary like Ezra who find themselves caught up in God's extraordinary purposes. This short book will deepen your confidence in God and whet your appetite to get involved in the biggest drama in history.

—Richard Underwood, Pastoral Director, The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC)

Chris Hughes has made the book of Ezra come alive for the modern reader. It is full of useful historical background, with great illustrations and application for our lives today and many references to other biblical passages that make it a must for teachers and preachers. It is a challenge and an encouragement to tall who are seeking to serve Christ in difficult times.

Jim Winter, Author and Pastor

Chris Hughes came to know the Lord while attending the youth club of an evangelical Anglican church on the Sussex coast. He has been involved in youth and other work in a number of churches and latterly served an FIEC church near Southampton as assistant pastor and then pastor for some fourteen years. He is married with two grown-up children and is currently working part-time as a solicitor while also engaging in community-based ministry for a church in Alton, Hampshire.

Joseph: Encountering the Man Who Saved His People

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 101

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Joseph's life is a story of dramatic ups and downs, but while not ignoring the practical lessons that can be drawn from his life, Roger Ellsworth fastens our attention on Joseph's place in the drama of God's redemptive plan. The sometimes chaotic nature of Joseph's circumstances did not mean that God's plan was thrown off track. Those circumstances were part of the plan. That is the lesson that can bring us comfort in our own chaotic and turbulent times. We can rest assured that God is moving forward to finish his plan to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The life of Joseph towers above the landscape of patriarchal history, pointing us to the ultimate Savior—as Roger Ellsworth makes so perfectly clear. Read these warm-hearted and practical pages and be edified. Ideal for both group and personal study.

R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus of College Church, Wheaton, IL

If you're looking for one of those disastrous studies that explore a biblical character as a model for coping with your problems, you will find Roger Ellsworth's Face2Face with Joseph disappointing; but if you're eager to see how biblical life finds its niche in God's plan, how human crud is bundled up in God's providence, or how a suffering servant points you to an unguessable Savior—well, then, here is your ticket.

Dale Ralph Davis, former Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS

Roger Ellsworth, after serving as a pastor for several years, now has an itinerant ministry. He is the author of well over thirty books, including many titles published by Day One.

Judas: Encountering the Betrayer of Jesus

  • Author: Andrew Wheeler
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 57

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In God's plan to save lost sinners, Jesus had to suffer and die. But that meant there had to be people who would bring this about. How did Judas, one of the Twelve and part of Jesus' inner circle of followers for several years, become one such person? What can we learn from one of the Bible's grimmest portraits?

You will not "enjoy" this book—at least, I hope not—but read with a prayerful, humble spirit, it is truly edifying.

Paul E. Brown, retired pastor and author of several books, Lancaster, UK

The strength of this little book is that it speaks to heart and conscience. Andrew forces me to look at myself and to examine my heart. Any book that does that is worth reading.

—Stephen Rees, Pastor, Grace Baptist Church, Stockport, UK

Andrew Wheeler has given us a perceptive study of one of the Bible's most enigmatic and tragic figures. In doing so, he reminds us how very far one can go in religion without ever possessing the true knowledge of Christ.

Roger Ellsworth, Pastor, Parkview Baptist Church, Jackson, Tennessee

Andrew Wheeler was born in Northampton and graduated from Lancaster University. He studied philosophy in his undergraduate and postgraduate years. He is a member of Free Grace Baptist Church in Lancaster, where he is presently extensively involved in youth work and has also engaged in training for the pastoral ministry.
