Exodus For You

  • Author: Tim Chester
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 288

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

Without Exodus, we have an impoverished understanding of the nature of God, the achievement of the cross, the triumph of the resurrection and the identity of God's people. With his trademark Christ-centered clarity, Tim Chester walks readers through Exodus, making its great themes thrillingly clear to those new to the book, and unearthing wonderful new surprises for those familiar with it.

You can read through this book as a normal book, work through it as part of your daily Bible-reading routine using the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, or use it to help you teach this book of the Bible, whether in small groups or from the pulpit.

Really enjoying it in my morning devotions as I see how the whole story of the exodus ties into the gospel fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

1 Samuel For You

  • Author: Tim Chester
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 224

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

1 Samuel is a book of barrenness and battles, kings and schemes, shepherds and giants. It recounts the history of Israel as it moved from no king, to the king it demanded, to the king God knew his people needed. But its greatest excitement lies not in the events and characters, but in the person they all point to. 1 Samuel presents us with a wonderful picture of Jesus. Seeing him in and through this Old Testament book enables us to see him with fresh color and texture, and see afresh what it means for us to follow him today as our Ruler and Rescuer. 1 Samuel is a book about ancient times, that speaks directly into ours.

This slim volume takes you through 1 Samuel in sequence. It is not intended as a commentary but provides chatty and, at times, devotional comment on the biblical text. There are many wonderful insights, for example, the relationship between David and Jonathan is often portrayed as between two young warriors. In fact, Jonathan is old enough to have been David's father, which puts a different complexion on their exchanges.

2 Samuel For You

  • Author: Tim Chester
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 192

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

2 Samuel is a story of triumph and disaster, both personal and national. It is the account of the rise and fall and rise of a great king, David of Israel. But it is also the story of the God who rules his people, who forgives his people, and who promises to send the King whose greatest fall will bring our eternal rise.

This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is less academic than a commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.

Daniel For You

  • Author: David Helm
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 224

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

We live in difficult times to be people who obey God and worship him alone. How can we be confident under pressure and faithful in the fire? In this readable, accessible, exciting volume walking through one of the best-loved books of the Bible, David Helm shows how Daniel and his friends learned how to live in Babylon, far from their home in God's land—and how we can do the same.

Love this thoughtful approach to the Book of Daniel. David Helm constantly reminds the reader of our relationship to Christ and draws us to see the need to be in right relationship with Him. Wonderful for preparing studies in Daniel for a small group.

Micah For You

  • Author: Stephen Um
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 176

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

We live in a world that craves justice. But what transforms us to truly seek justice, even at cost to ourselves? And what enables us to do so in a way that also offers mercy? Stephen Um opens up the book of Micah, showing how God’s call to his people then is God’s call to his people now—a call to so enjoy the gospel that we are freed to seek true justice and offer real mercy. This minor prophet is a voice for our times.

Micah for You is a very helpful lay commentary written by an experienced and expert Bible teacher. Stephen Um takes you through the argument of this reforming prophet, not only making sense of the flow of the book but expertly unpacking the nature of sin and idolatry, the threat of judgment, and the need for hope. Micah is well known for his passionate plea for justice and integrity, and through Dr. Um's exposition Micah, though long dead, still speaks to our broken generation. Particularly helpful are the ways in which Dr. Um draws carefully thought-through connections between this prophet in ancient Israel and the Lord Jesus Christ and his gospel.

Josh Moody helps those new to John to dip their toes in its waters, while also showing new depths to those more familiar with this Gospel. Jesus came to bring life to the full—and in showing us his seven signs, John pictures the fulfillment that comes from living life as a follower of the Word become flesh.

I've been using this book alongside the 'Good Book Guide to John 1-12' to lead several one-to-one and small-group studies of John's Gospel. The book is easy to read, well-structured and extremely insightful. I have learnt a great deal about the theology of John's Gospel, as well as how to apply its teaching to my life. I would highly recommend it as a resource to facilitate your own learning as preparation to serve others.

There is no more thrilling part of the Bible than the book of Acts, and no better guide to it than Albert Mohler. This first volume takes in the ascension of Jesus, the coming of the Spirit, the birth of the church, the start of persecution, the conversion of Saul, and the divine call to world-wide evangelism. If you want to be fueled for Christian life and mission, you will want to read this book.

I have used this book to help structure a weekly study in Acts with our anglophone group in our church here in France. It does not pretend to be a commentary but is eminently readable and understandable and has proved a tremendous source for our group.

  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 224

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

In a world where Christianity seems increasingly sidelined and even irrelevant, we need to grasp the truths of this faith-affirming, life-changing letter. Ephesians For You helps readers see how being "in Christ" changes everything—our view of ourselves, our world, our future, our church, homes and workplaces.

This book on Ephesians is a must-read. Richard has been grappling with this great epistle for some time in his preaching and now, in this commentary, has distilled the spectacular message of Ephesians. I thoroughly recommend it.

  • Author: Mark Meynell
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 208

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

In his letter to the Colossians, Paul shows how these can never come to us through political, philosophical, mystical or religious systems. They only come through Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God. Mark Meynell unpacks Colossians and Philemon, verse by verse in this expository guide which can be used as a daily devotional or for studying this letter in your church. It will excite ordinary Christians in their faith, equip teachers and preachers in their work, and help us all to root our confidence in the right place.

Colossians and Philemon for You does a great job of bridging the gap between first-century Colossae and our world today. It makes God’s word clear, but more than that, it reveals its relevance. This is a word for our age, and Mark Meynell has done a fine job of showing that in an engaging and compelling way.

James For You

  • Author: Sam Allberry
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 176

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

What is the difference between genuine faith and counterfeit faith? How do we know for sure that our faith is real? How can we know joy even in trials, and patience even in suffering?

James is a book full of practical, life-changing help for real life. James For You makes clear its teaching and applies its challenges to the experiences of everyday Christians as Sam Allberry brings his clarity, wisdom and humor to every page. You can read through this book as a normal book, work through it as part of your daily Bible-reading routine, or use it to help you teach this letter, whether in small groups or from the pulpit.

Soundly doctrinal, eminently practical, and beautifully devotional, this just might be the most accessible yet serious commentary on James available. I don't like to admit this, but I find many biblical commentaries tedious and boring—but there's nothing dry or abstract about James For You. Whether you're planning to preach or teach James or to listen to these ancient words to redirect your own life, Sam Allberry is a wise and faithful guide.

1 Peter For You

  • Author: Juan Sanchez
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 192

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

The book of 1 Peter could have been written for our times—a time of antagonism toward biblical ethics, and the marginalization of biblical Christians. Into that culture—our culture—Peter speaks of hope and offers joy as he points believers home to heaven.

Juan Sanchez brings his experience of ministry in the US and Latin America, and his pastoral wisdom and insight, to this wonderful epistle—an epistle that every Christian needs to treasure today.

Expositions that simultaneously expound a biblical text accurately and apply it to the target audience tellingly are rare. This is one of the rare ones. It is all the more important because through it Peter speaks to the Western church in the twenty-first century: God is preparing his people for the privilege of suffering service in the light of the grace that has been revealed in Christ Jesus and of the glory that is yet to come.

—D. A. Carson

Juan Sanchez is Preaching Pastor of High Pointe Baptist Church in Austin, Texas. He is a member of The Gospel Coalition Council, and an influential leader in the Reformed movement in Latin America.

Revelation For You

  • Author: Tim Chester
  • Publisher: The Good Book Company
  • Publication Date: 2019
  • Pages: 208

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

Many Christians are confused by the book of Revelation. It moves from strange and disturbing images to warm and practical encouragement; from the fires of Hell to wonderful pictures of a glorious eternity.

And yet the message of the final book of the Bible is both clear and simple. Despite everything that is going wrong with our world, God remains in control. And when we see history, our present, and our future from heaven's perspective, it will encourage us to trust God and remain faithful to the end. This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is more applied than a typical commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.
