Praise for the Print Edition

John Stott was, in my opinion, the greatest Bible expositor of the past few decades because he knew how to let his deep study of the Word highlight relevant points for the daily life and thought of ordinary people. I am so glad that the fruit of his ministry is available in this user-friendly format.

The gospel has power. The power to save us. The power to change the world. In Paul’s letter to the Romans he explains to us the power we’ve been given to be effective witnesses, to overcome sin, to be wholly committed to God, to handle differences in Christ’s body, to understand God’s view of homosexuality and to be responsible Christian citizens. The truth in Romans will transform your thinking and convict your heart as you discover the power of the gospel for every area of your life and our world.

In Christ we have salvation as a gift of grace. But what is our responsibility? Maybe you’re confused about the various requirements different Christians say accompany being a follower of Christ. Galatians raises questions of law: What rules should a Christian follow? Are we exempt through Christ? These studies from Galatians help us understand what God—not others—requires of his followers and how we can live out our faith in both obedience and freedom.

We long to belong. We crave unity. We want to be loved and accepted by others. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is about uniting all things in Christ. Here we learn how to break down what separates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, employer from employee. These studies provide a vision of the new society God has planned in his church.

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. For centuries Christians have proclaimed these central truths. The gospel that began in space and time will ultimately be fulfilled at Christ’s return. And as we wait and long for Christ’s return, this gospel gives us encouragement and a reason for hope. These studies in Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians open our minds to the truth, lift our hearts to hope and cause us to worship our faithful, victorious God.

We live in a culture where the beliefs and preferences of the individual are given final authority. Paul’s firm commitment to the church as “the pillar and foundation of the truth” stands against the current. His letters to Timothy and Titus call us to reestablish the core beliefs of Christianity and affirm our convictions about the gospel. Paul’s priority in these letters is to make sure that the truth of the gospel is faithfully guarded and delivered to the next generation. Through these studies, we will be challenged to carry on the battle, armed with the truth of the gospel.

“Our era is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle summons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast.” In this way John Stott summarizes the message of Paul’s second letter to Timothy, a letter about leadership and responsibility. The inductive studies in this guide speak to all who would stand for Christ in a world of slippery, relative truth. Our call is to bring the only real, solid Word of grace and truth to a world without hope.

Revelation: The Triumph of Christ

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

Readers’ reactions to the book of Revelation are remarkably varied. Some Christians are obsessed with it, viewing it as a kind of secret history of the world, especially of contemporary events and people, and seeking the key to decipher it. Other Christians go to the opposite extreme of neglect. They know that the book contains much bizarre imagery, and are mystified and even intimidated by the unfamiliar. So they ignore the book or try to read it and give up in despair.

The truth is that with a bit of help and sound interpretation Revelation is a part of God’s holy Word with much to offer in nurture of our spiritual lives. Here is an opportunity to discover Revelation.

Why is it that some Christians cross land and sea, continents and cultures? Not to commend a civilization, an institution or an ideology, but rather to offer the unique person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is at the center of our conversion.

This study guide is designed to help you explore the Christ of the New Testament. You will discover him as the proper object of worship, witness and hope. He is the incomparable Christ.

The Beatitudes: Developing Spiritual Character

  • Author: John Stott

  • Publisher: IVP Connect
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 63

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

The beatitudes reveal to us eight qualities that bring God’s blessing: meekness and mercy, poorness in spirit and purity of heart, mourning and hunger, peacemaking and persecution. Jesus highlighted these to offer both encouragement and instruction on living distinctly as his followers in a world with values much different from God’s. As we study these qualities and integrate them into our lives, we will receive the blessing Jesus promised to his followers then and now.
