David a Man After God’s Own heart

  • Author: J. Vernon McGee

The Bible calls David “a man after God’s own heart.” But what does that really mean—and how does it apply to us today? With his usual warmth, clarity, and simplicity, Dr. McGee takes a look at the life of David, helping readers move beyond the exciting action stories and into the heart of what David’s experiences have to teach us. Dr. McGee said, “Perhaps the most familiar Bible story to every boy and girl who has attended Sunday School is that of David and Goliath. It is a thrilling action story. But the greater thrill is the splendid spiritual truths that are applicable to our present-day lives as believers.”

J. Vernon McGee On Prayer

Deepen your prayer life with this treasury of Dr. McGee’s best sermons on communicating with God. Explore the Christian’s “greatest neglected resource”; examine the prayer styles of great men of faith such as Daniel, Abraham, and Nehemiah; discover the “real” Lord’s Prayer and its meaning for believers today—and more.

Jesus: Centerpiece of Scripture

  • Author: J. Vernon McGee

This book has been compiled from our library of Dr. McGee’s messages preserved for us on audio cassettes. They have been selected with the intent of offering glimpses of who Jesus is so that we may stand in awe as we see him “despised and rejected by men,” yet always gracious and full of compassion, “slow to anger and of great mercy.”

Living by Faith

  • Author: J. Vernon McGee

Dr. J. Vernon McGee turns to the Epistle of James to present very practical lessons on Christian living. The subject of James is faith. The Epistle of James “pinches,” says Dr. McGee. It “hurts you because he gets right down to where we are living-or, more accurately, to where we’re not living.” he challenges believers to a faith that works and walks in shoe leather. Because James emphasizes the ethics of the Christian faith, Dr. McGee uses the metaphor of “God’s University.” When life presents us with “quizzes” or “tests,” Dr. McGee explains, the believer need not worry—because James has provided us with not only the test questions, but also the answers.

Notes and Outlines for the Five-Year Study Plan

  • Author: J. Vernon McGee

These Notes and Outlines on each book of the Bible were prepared by Dr. McGee to assist listeners who wanted an even deeper and more thorough understanding of the Word as they followed along with his five-year radio program.

In this complete treasury featuring many of his best sermons, Dr. McGee teaches us how to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit into our lives and how to pray and walk in the Spirit. In his warm, trademark style, Dr. McGee examines applicable Scripture, analyzing and exploring what the Bible teaches about the role of the Spirit in a believer’s life.

How To Survive In a World of Unbelievers: Jesus’ Words of Encouragement on the Night Before his Death

  • Author: John MacArthur

Jesus answered this troubling question on the eve of his death with some of the most poignant, powerful teaching in his entire ministry. During those hours, he taught his apostles—and, consequently, all believers throughout history—How to Survive In a World of Unbelievers. Respected pastor, teacher, and author John MacArthur, in a reading of John 13–16, plumbs the depths of Jesus’ final words of encouragement to us. By studying this valuable book, you will find answers to these and other difficult questions:

  • How can you keep your life focused on glorifying Christ in a society that proclaims self-esteem, pride, and personal achievement as marks of success?
  • How do you retain your Christian ethics when your boss asks you to lie or cheat?
  • How can you keep your family anchored to Christ in a society that is drifting far away from his teaching on family issues such as divorce, homosexuality, and abortion?
  • How do you help your children stay morally pure when they want to “fit in” with school friends who prefer objectionable activites?
  • How can you remain pure-hearted and spiritually sound in a church seemingly full of hypocrites?

What the Bible Says About Parenting: Biblical Principles for Raising Godly Children

More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting—and put that teaching into practice.

Why Government Can’t Save You: An Alternative to Political Activism

  • Author: John MacArthur

In Why Government Can’t Save You (An Alternative to Political Activism), author John MacArthur illustrates through Scripture that, regardless of the numerous immoral, unjust, and ungodly failures of secular government, believers are to pray and seek to influence the world for Christ by godly, selfless, and peaceful living under that authority, not by protests against the government or acts of civil disobedience. Dr. MacArthur will explore these areas:

  • Christians’ responsibility to authority
  • How and why to support our leaders
  • How to live righteously in a pagan culture
  • The principle of paying taxes
  • Jesus’ lessons on tax exemptions
  • The biblical purpose of government
  • The principle and reasons for civil obedience

Hard to Believe Workbook

  • Author: John MacArthur

The popular perception of Jesus Christ is that of a tempered, genteel man who walked the earth, offering nuggets of wisdom to his followers. But what we sometimes fail to recognize is that, although Jesus Christ offered a message of forgiveness, he also spoke challenging, demanding words about what being a follower of Christ requires. In contrast to the superficiality of much modern Bible teaching, Dr. John MacArthur uncovers in this workbook the unvarnished truth of what Christ really taught. In simple, compelling terms, he spells out what is required of those who would follow him. With provocative questions and exercises, he leads readers to a full understanding of the call of Christ.

Safe in the Arms of God

  • Author: John MacArthur

“Is my baby in heaven?” This is the most important question a grieving parent can ask. And even if the little one is someone else’s child, the issue remains: what happens to children—those unborn, stillborn, or young—when they die? Can you hope to see them again? Can you let go of your fear and guilt? Can God’s love soothe a wound so jagged?

The Battle for the Beginning

  • Author: John MacArthur

Thanks to the theory of evolution, naturalism is now the dominant religion of modern society. Many Christians who claim to believe in the Bible seem willing to allow modern scientific thoeries to replace the Genesis account of creation. Such compromises present a great danger, MacArthur believes. Dr.John MacArthur draws a clear line in today’s theological landscape and calls on his readers to help him defend it.

The Gospel according to the Apostles

  • Author: John MacArthur

Ever since the days of the apostles Paul and James, Christians have struggled to define the proper balance 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” (2:18). In fact, he asserts, “Faith without works is dead.” In his characteristically compelling style Dr. MacArthur reconciles these two seemingly divergent threads of biblical truth, taking on 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?

The Truth War Study Guide

  • Author: John MacArthur

Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Christians are caught in the crossfire of alternative Christian histories, emerging faulty texts, and a cultural push to eliminate absolute truth altogether.

In The Truth War, John MacArthur reclaims the unwavering certainty of God’s Truth and anchors Christians in the eternal, immovable promises that are found in his Word.

The Vanishing Conscience

  • Author: John MacArthur

Twelve Extraordinary Women

  • Author: John MacArthur

Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it’s no wonder women were so important to God’s plan revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn’t their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary, but the power of the one true God whom they worshipped and served. In Twelve Extraordinary Women, you’ll learn more than fascinating information about these women—you’ll discover, perhaps for the first time, the unmistakable chronology of God’s redemptive work in history through their lives. These women were not ancillary to his plan, they were at the very heart of it.

When the Enemy Strikes: The Keys to Winning Your Spiritual Battles

  • Author: Charles Stanley

At some point or another every Christian will experience a satanic attack—a willful, determined assault by the devil meant to harm the Christian spirit, soul, or body. God wants Christians to be under his control, but the Enemy will do his best to destroy everything good in our lives. So the question is not how to avoid satanic attacks, but how to overcome them.

Satan is not omnipotent, but he is nonetheless a very powerful adversary. However, God does not leave us to defend ourselves, and he wants us to understand his supernatural and unlimited ability to help us. Dr. Stanley will show readers how to achieve victory by:

  • Identifying the enemy
  • Dressing in the full armor of God and standing firm
  • Releasing God’s energy, divine power, and protection through prayer
  • Sensing the forewarnings of Satan’s attacks on finances, family, relationships, or health

Spiritual warfare is fought every day on the battlefield of your mind. The Adversary knows that if he can influence and direct your thinking, it’s only a matter of time before you’re vulnerable to the allure of sin. Dr. Stanley teaches that to stand against Satan’s attacks, you must meditate upon biblical principles and take every thought captive by arming yourself with the sword of the spirit—God’s Word.

Becoming Emotionally Whole

  • Author: Charles Stanley

God made you to have feelings. He desires that you experience his presence with your emotions, express yourself emotionally, and have an emotional relationship with other people. The Lord desires that you become emotionally whole!

For most of us, the realm of emotions has uncharted territories. We are unsure of the language of emotions. We have neglected or feared to explore areas of inner life. Recognize at the outset of this study that if this is true for you, it is likely true for every other person you know. Give family members, your circle of friends, other church members, or your Bible study group, the freedom to err on their way toward emotional health.

How to Handle Adversity

  • Author: Charles Stanley

The loss of a job. A rebellious child. The death of a loved one. The cancer diagnosis of a dear friend. A struggling marriage. Financial hardships.

The list is endless. When hard times come, we need wisdom to navigate through the shoals of adversity into a safe harbor. And now, in How to Handle Adversity, Charles Stanley offers a practical, biblical approach to help us deal with the troubles common to us all.

Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Stanley contends, “As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, How should I respond?”

How to Keep Your Kids on Your Team

  • Author: Charles Stanley

“It’s not what you think that will impact your child; it’s what you communicate.” What are you telling your kids? Are you telling them that their crises are trivial and their ideas are foolish? Probably not in so many words—but you may be communicating just that with your lack of interest in the day–to–day activities of your child. To keep your children on your team, Charles Stanley asserts, you must assure them from the start that you are on theirs.

Focusing on the parental role as one of stewardship rather than ownership, Stanley instructs parents on how to ingrain a sense of personal accountability to God into the minds of children at an early age. By doing so, parents can raise confident, self–controlled kids who will hold fast to the values they instill.

How to Listen to God

  • Author: Charles Stanley

After becoming a Christian, believers discover the joy of God’s voice, but often the purity and freshness of that initial experience becomes clouded by the daily routine of life. In How to Listen to God, Dr. Charles Stanley helps readers rediscover how to distinguish God’s voice from all the other voices around them—and how to joyfully and obediently respond. Dr. Stanley uses personal experiences from his life and ministry to discuss why God wants to communicate with us, how God gets our attention, how God communicates with us, and how to listen to God and enjoy his presence.

Into his Presence

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Readers challenged to enter Into his Presence will be encouraged, uplifted, and spiritually renewed with this new devotional.

To receive what he had for them, they had to come away from the spiritual status quo of life and go a higher level. That is the purpose of this devotional guide—to lift the reader to a new level of intimate, mountaintop encounters with God. Each section will have an introduction explaining the focus for that month’s devotional reading and a listing of relevant Scripture along with daily devotional commentary.

Landmines in the Path of the Believer

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Dr. Charles Stanley identifies seven destructive temptations and gives Christians the hope and skills they need to live an abundant and obedient life.

When you are in the heat of spiritual battle, it does not take long to realize that Satan will do anything to prevent you from becoming the person God has planned for you to be. However, he does not always employ an all-out frontal assault. Sometimes the danger comes in subtle, secretive schemes—landmines hidden along our paths. These landmines, once detonated, can paralyze us spiritually and stop us from living an abundant and obedient life. In Landmines, beloved pastor Dr. Charles Stanley shows readers how to identify, avoid, and defuse landmines of pride, jealousy and envy, insecurity, compromise, unforgiveness, sexual sin, and laziness.

Avoiding serious trouble is not difficult, says Dr. Stanley, especially if you follow the route God has given you to travel. God knows the way through every minefield.

Listening to God

  • Author: Charles Stanley

One of the most important lessons in life that we can learn is how to listen to God. In our complex and hectic lives, nothing is more urgent, nothing more necessary, and nothing more rewarding than hearing what God has to say to us—hearing both as bodies of believers and as individuals.

Our God is not a speechless God. Our God is alive and active in our world. He speaks! Furthermore, he doesn’t speak to us in veiled terms, riddles, or mysteries. He speaks to us plainly. The goal of any communicator is not to speak well but to be heard. God speaks in such a way that we can hear him, receive his message clearly, and understand precisely what he wants us to do.

Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit

  • Author: Charles Stanley

As young believers, we often begin our walk with Christ energetically, ready to “take on the world.” But somewhere along the way, we find ourselves faltering. Why? Because we stop relying on the Holy Spirit to guide us and protect us from temptation.

Charles Stanley reminds us that the Holy Spirit is the promise from the Father for all believers. By illuminating who he is, how we receive him, and what he can do in our lives, Stanley removes much of the mystery surrounding the Holy Spirit and offers new hope to believers who have long been perplexed by this member of the Trinity.

Living the Extraordinary Life: Nine Principles to Discover It

  • Author: Charles Stanley

To many in the world, the Christian faith is a set of rules and regulations. But Jesus himself did not teach his followers in sets of dos and don’ts; he taught them foundational principles to live by. These life principles, Charles Stanley says, are the simple truths that act as a compass for our souls.

You will learn that:

  • Your life is a masterpiece
  • Waiting on God is not passive
  • Disappointments are inevitable, but discouragement is a choice
  • You were created with eternity in your heart
  • God assumes full responsibility for your needs when you obey him

Using examples from his own personal experiences, Biblical personalities, and case studies, Dr. Stanley demonstrates how these key life principles impact life in the 21st century—and how they make us, as Christians, different from those who live their lives according to preference rather than principles.

On Holy Ground

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Abraham leaving Ur for an unknown land God would show him. Jesus going out into the wilderness of temptation. Paul’s traveling—life-changingly—down the Damascus Road. All these biblical journeys offer insight into our own personal spiritual journey. In On Holy Ground, Charles Stanley takes an in-depth look at 12 such biblical journeys to show us how we, too, can meet God and follow where he leads. Relating the timeless stories to our modern situations, Dr. Stanley offers solid biblical teaching that meets practical daily needs for encouragement and inspiration. A powerful devotional in the tradition of his best-selling classic, Enter his Gates.

Overcoming the Enemy

  • Author: Charles Stanley

As believers in Christ Jesus, we have three main enemies in life. They are constantly present to harass us, create conflict for us, and generate trouble for us. We cannot escape any of them completely as long as we are alive, but we are assured of victory over them as long as we rely on the Lord Jesus for our wisdom, power, and ability to endure. Our three enemies are:

  • The world
  • The flesh
  • The devil

Because this is a Bible study intended for group use, the author encourages you to see yourselves as a band of God’s warriors, powerfully equipped for battle through your relationship with Christ Jesus and your empowerment by the Holy Spirit. Expect your study of the Word to equip you to help one another as you continue to build your relationship with other believers in your church or community after your study has ended.

Pathways to his Presence

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Dr. Charles F. Stanley understands it can be difficult to walk the dimly lit paths of life with the lantern of God’s guidance shining only a few steps ahead of us. But God’s Word provides the spiritual guidance to lead us—it is the pathway to his presence.

Pathways to his Presence focuses on 12 spiritual pathways that will guide you confidently into the presence of God, including:

  • The pathway to God’s will
  • The pathway to forgiveness
  • The pathway to victory
  • The pathway to freedom
  • The pathway to the future

As you walk these pathways, you will join a long list of biblical heroes who were called to move forward into impossible situations armed only with their trust in God. He has promised that when we do so, he will provide us with the guidance we long for.

Practicing Basic Spiritual Disciplines

  • Author: Charles Stanley

There is much talk today about the spiritual disciplines. The age-old tools of Bible study, prayer, witnessing, church attendance, service, and obedience are still relevant today. Outlining the various stages of spiritual growth and the way we can find Christ in every circumstance, this volume enables believers to lay aside every sin and weight that would hinder them in their walk with God.

Relying on the Holy Spirit

  • Author: Charles Stanley

There is no such thing as an average Christian life. Either you are living a vibrant Spirit–filled life or you aren’t. You are in forward motion—or in a pause position. You are living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit or you aren’t.

You likely have some preconceptions about the Holy Spirit and how he works within a person’s life. Stanley encourages you to lay them aside and approach these lessons with a wide–open heart and mind.

Talking With God

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Prayer is the key to relationship. Intentional dialogue with God ultimately establishes and deepens our relationship with him. The purpose of prayer is that we might know God better, experience more of his love, and have an abiding awareness of his work in our lives. Talking to God doesn’t build relationship. Communicating with God does.

As we approach this study in prayer, the author encourages you to open yourself to the grand possibility that God has something to say to you that you will delight in hearing. He is eager to spend time with you and to develop a deep, intimate relationship with you marked by great joy and well–being.

The Gift of Forgiveness

  • Author: Charles Stanley

It is Stanley’s prayer that in these pages you will discover the freedom that comes from putting behind you once and for all the hurts and injustices of yesterday.

Walking Wisely: Real Guidance for Life’s Journey

Winning the War Within

  • Author: Charles Stanley

A few moments of illicit pleasure, a few dollars of illegal gain—what can it hurt? The aftermath of our pleasures and gains can wreak spiritual havoc when those indictments are bought at the cost of wrongdoing. In Winning the War Within, Dr. Stanley examines temptation from a biblical perspective and tracks its course from desire to sin to death. He clarifies the distinction between a test or a trial (which may come from God) and a temptation (which never comes from God) and explains God’s solutions for coping with the trials and for triumphing over temptations.

Our Unmet Needs

  • Author: Charles Stanley

We are a needy generation. We try to satisfy our needs with sin, disobedience, doubt, manipulation of God and others, and more. But God wants to redirect our lives, teach us greater trust, and meet our needs in the light of his eternal purposes. Dr. Stanley guides the reader through Scripture to show that, in spite of our doubts and rebellion, God wants to meet our deepest needs.

Sound biblical teaching and real–life examples from this popular preacher will encourage Christians who want to tap into God’s supply for their lives.

God’s desire is to restore, strengthen, and infuse the believer with life–giving, joy–filled hope.

The Wonderful Spirit-Filled Life

  • Author: Charles Stanley

Life abundant—Jesus promised it and we long for it, yet few Christians seem to have it. Blending lively anecdotes, commentary, and teachings from the Bible, Stanley introduces you to the Holy Spirit. He is not an oversized electrical current you just plug into when you need additional help, nor a theological concept, but a presence just as real and active as Christ. He has personality as well as a specific job description—and a definite desire to be an active part of our lives.

Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone’s Asking

  • Author: Darrell L. Bock

Many who have read the New York Times bestseller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes—expressed or implied—in Dan Brown’s book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone’s Asking, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist’s claims using central ancient texts and answers the following questions:

  • Who was Mary Magdalene?
  • Was Jesus married?
  • Would being single make Jesus un-Jewish?
  • Do the so-called secret, gnostic gospels help us understand Jesus?
  • What is the remaining relevance of The Da Vinci Code?

Darrell Bock’s research uncovers the origins of these codes by focusing on the 325 years immediately following the birth of Christ, for the claims of The Da Vinci Code succeed or fail on the basis of evidence emerging from this period. Breaking the Da Vinci Code distinguishes fictitious entertainment from historical elements of the Christian faith. By seeing these differences, one can break the Da Vinci code.

Religions A to Z is a complete, easy-to-use handbook of the origins, basic beliefs, and defining features of the world’s religions, cults, and sects. Written with the Christian in mind, these profiles provide the reader with the fundamentals of today’s religions and how they compare to Christianity.

The Theological Wordbook

  • Author: Don Campbell

“Stimulating theology” is an oxymoron for most people. “Theology” sounds like something severely intellectual, full of complicated ideas that escape the typical Christian reader.

In reality, theology is meant to enhance our understanding of God. Most of the words that make up the Christian vocabulary are common words, drawn from the realities of life, and are therefore easily applicable to real life. Based on this premise four leading authors have come together to create this excellent volume.

The Theological Wordbook tackles tough words—propitiation, regeneration, righteousness, predestination—but it does so in a natural, plain-spoken manner designed to be enlightening rather than evasive. Furthermore, literally dozens of words you likely to use every day—such as forgiveness, mind, peace, rest, family, truth, guilt—have profound biblical value. Using The Theological Wordbook can enable you to more fully appreciate what the Bible teaches on these crucial topics and how each of these terms is relevant for life today.

As this happens, your understanding of God will expand. And as the words you use, speak, and hear in the community of faith become more familiar, you will become more connected to your own spiritual heritage.

The Theological Wordbook is the link between understanding God’s Word in your head and accepting it in your heart.
