Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the famed Welsh minister, is widely hailed as one of the greatest preachers of the last 100 years. Over the course of his career, “the Doctor” preached 28 sermons on the third chapter of the Gospel of John. However, until now, these sermons have remained unpublished and largely out of reach of today’s Christians.

Reflecting on the powerful story of Jesus’s encounter with Nicodemus and what it means to be “born again,” this collection of biblical expositions highlights God’s stunning love for the world as expressed through his unique Son, Jesus Christ. Readers will be encouraged to turn to the One who promises eternal life to all who trust in him.

Martyn-Lloyd Jones was one of God’s special gifts to the church in the twentieth century.

—Mark Dever, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; president, 9Marks

Lloyd-Jones’s preaching was based on deep reading and scholarship, yet it was accessible to everyone—it stirred the affections and changed the heart.

—Timothy J. Keller, pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; best-selling author, The Reason for God

I regarded Martyn Lloyd-Jones with admiration and affection during the years that we were both preaching in London, so I am delighted that his unique ministry is to be more widely available in the United States.

—John Stott, The Late Rector Emeritus, All Souls Church, London

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for 30 years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day. His many books have brought profound spiritual encouragement to millions around the world.

  • John Piper - Jesus the Son of God, the Son of Mary (Luke 1–2)

Reading the Word of God in the Presence of God: A Handbook for Biblical Interpretation

  • Author: Vern S. Poythress
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 464

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

Every time we read the Bible, we’re reading in the presence of God. This incredible truth should shape how we read in specific ways.

Moving quickly from principle to practice, Vern Poythress helps us rethink how we interpret the Bible by showing us the implications of entering into God’s presence as we study. This handbook outlines distinct steps for practicing faithful biblical interpretation by focusing on our fellowship with the God who speaks to us through his Word.

While many sincere Christians read the Scriptures as personal communiques from God, biblical scholars often treat them as little more than human documents written for people living long ago. Vern Poythress insists neither of these paths reflects how Christ calls his followers to approach the Bible. Everyone familiar with Poythress’s theological reflections knows that he is one of the brightest minds of our day. Everyone familiar with his life knows the depth of his piety. In this book, Poythress offers a glimpse into how he employs both of these gifts from the Holy Spirit as he handles the Bible. His reflections will challenge and inspire everyone who seeks to read the Scriptures in the presence of God.

—Richard L. Pratt Jr., president, Third Millennium Ministries

Vern Poythress has given the church a truly comprehensive guide to reading and appropriating Scripture. This unique resource explains both the first steps for beginners and the theological, philosophical, and linguistic foundations for sophisticated interpretation.

—Dan Doriani, vice president of strategic academic projects and professor of theology, Covenant Seminary

Providing both theological foundations and practical strategies for interpretation, Dr. Poythress explains the simple yet astounding truth that God is present in his Word and speaks to us as we read. With pastoral sensitivity, he combines linguistic theory, hermeneutics, systematic theology, and expert biblical knowledge into a compelling work both instructive for advanced students of the Bible and accessible for beginners. I highly commend this book and look forward to sharing it with my congregation.

—Camden Bucey, pastor, Hope Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Grayslake, IL; president, Reformed Forum

Vern S. Poythress (PhD, Harvard University; ThD, University of Stellenbosch) is professor of New Testament interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he has taught for nearly four decades. In addition to earning six academic degrees, he is the author of numerous books and articles on biblical interpretation, language, and science.

The Inerrant Word: Biblical, Historical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspectives

  • Editor: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 400

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

Christians are called to stand firm on the inerrancy of Scripture. Sadly, more and more people—not only from outside the church but also from within—are denying the complete truthfulness of God’s Word.

Edited by pastor John MacArthur, these commissioned essays by a host of evangelical pastors, theologians, historians, and biblical scholars contend that the Bible is completely true and without error—a foundational belief for those who claim to honor God. Exploring key Bible passages, events from church history, common criticisms, and pastoral applications, the contributors in this volume instill Christians with both certainty and courage to defend the inerrancy of God’s Word.

John MacArthur is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, where he has served since 1969. He is known around the world for his verse-by-verse expository preaching and his pulpit ministry via his daily radio program, Grace to You. He has also written or edited nearly four hundred books and study guides. MacArthur serves as the president of the Master’s University and Seminary.

—Chris Brauns, pastor, The Red Brick Church, Stillman Valley, IL; author, Unpacking Forgiveness, Bound Together, and When the Word Leads Your Pastoral Search

Chris offers a clear, brief, and winsome trip through the pages of Scripture as he examines major unifying themes of the narrative of redemption. This is a wonderful contribution to the growing number of works that help Christians learn biblical theology; it helps us ‘put our Bibles together’ and better grasp the story of God’s saving reign through Jesus.

  • Pages: 144

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

This book highlights 16 key Bible verses that stand as “turning points” in the biblical storyline—enabling us to see God’s incredible plan to redeem his people and glorify his name from Genesis to Revelation. Whether it’s exploring the creation of humanity, the establishment of the covenants, or the coming of the Messiah, this book will help Christians see how God’s Word tells a single story about his sovereignty, glory, and grace.

How would you answer the question, What’s the main message of the Bible? How does the Bible itself answer that question? Introducing readers to biblical theology, Bruno teases out answers to these questions from Scripture, methodically tracing the major milestones of redemptive history to illuminate the gospel thread and to tie it all together. Whether you’re new to the Bible or have grown up hearing its stories in Sunday school, Bruno’s book will lead you to a greater love for God’s Word and hope in the Savior to whom every part of it points.

—J. Mack Stiles, author, Evangelism; Marks of the Messenger; Mack and Leeann’s Guide to Short Term Missions; and Speaking of Jesus

This compact and insightful book is ideal for one-on-one discipleship, as well as more formal teaching contexts. All Christians, whether mature or young in the faith, will find much to meditate on and rejoice in as Bruno faithfully sketches in the story of redemption.

—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

In order to understand our Bibles, we need to understand the big story of God’s redemptive plan. Chris Bruno focuses on sixteen key texts to provide a clear and accessible outline of this big story. I recommend the book highly.
