What the Bible Teaches about Angels

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 119

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

Angels are everywhere—in movies, television shows, figurines, books, magazine articles and seminars. This would seem to be very good news. After all, the Bible does have a lot to say about angels, mentioning them 273 times. Should we not welcome such widespread interest in a biblical topic?

All too often, the only connection between the current angel-mania and the Bible is the teaching that angels exist.

In this straightforward and easy-to-read volume, Roger Ellsworth sets the record straight, putting the biblical view of angels in a clear and helpful way, dealing with such topics as what are the seraphim and cherubim, angels as ministering spirits, and the role of angels at the beginning and end of time. Above all is his concern to drive us to the one the angels themselves adore—the Lord Jesus Christ.

What the Bible Teaches about Being Born Again

  • Author: Gary Brady
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 172

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

In many parts of the world today you will meet people who say they are “born-again Christians.” Numerous individuals claim to be “reborn” or “regenerate.” But what do they mean by this? More importantly, what does the Bible have to say about it?

In this volume, Gary Brady dispels many misunderstandings of what it means to be “born again” and outlines the biblical meaning, explaining why it is necessary, how it happens, and how lives are changed as a result. He shows that it is not a change of outlook, or even direction, but an everlasting change of our very natures, brought about by a work of God himself.

It is the author’s belief that “no subject in religion is of greater importance than that of the new birth,” and it is his desire that in reading this this volume you’ll not only come to understand what it really means, but that, if it has never happened to you before, you will come to experience it for yourself and be born again.

Gary Brady, a native of South Wales, has been the pastor of Childs Hill Baptist Church, northwest London, since 1983. He has studied at the University of Wales, in Aberystwyth and Cardiff, and in London at the London Theological Seminary and John Owen Center. He holds a ThM degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. He has previously published commentaries on Proverbs and Song of Solomon.

What the Bible Teaches about Christian Parenting

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 111

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

We live in trying times, times of moral laxity and confusion, times when God’s laws are scorned and disdained, times in which people make up their own rules as they go along.

Parents rightly want their children to be happy. But what produces happiness? Many parents think it is produced by allowing their children to do whatever they want. All of this makes the bringing up of godly children extremely difficult and challenging. Sometimes it seems impossible. All the different aspects of our society seem to have come together in a gigantic conspiracy to undermine the morality of our children, and Christian parents struggle to know how to respond.

The Bible is a practical book. It deals with real-life people dealing with real-life problems and seeking real-life solutions. Parenting is one of those areas where many real-life people are finding real-life problems. The Bible has real-life solutions!

In this straightforward and easy-to-read book, Roger Ellsworth asserts that Christians must tightly hold and widely proclaim that children are God’s good gifts and that parenting is not a burdensome duty but a wondrous privilege, and in caring for and teaching our children God has not left us to our own devices. He has given us his own Word as our guide and help.

This helpful book deals with the problems confronting parents. Modern living exposes children to many temptations and experiences with which parents have not themselves undergone, and consequently feel hard-pressed to solve.

What the Bible Teaches about the Future

  • Author: Peter Bloomfield
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 256

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

The Bible has an amazing record of being right about the future. In fact it has never been wrong.

Therefore when God, through his Word, tells us what is in store for our planet, the whole of humanity, and each of us as individuals, we should sit up and take notice because all the evidence tells us that this is what will happen and it affects us directly.

What does the future hold? This is a question that concerns many people in these days of uncertainty. Yet for others, to live for today, with no thought at all to the future, is all that matters. Surely the sensible approach is to investigate the answers and live in the light of them, rather than stick our head in the sand.

What does happen after we die? What will happen when Jesus comes to our planet again? Will this earth go on forever? How will God judge people? Who will be let into heaven? What is heaven like?

The biblical books are like navigation charts, marking out the points of progress along the way—the landmarks, the deeps, the safe channels, and the reefs where men get shipwrecked. We can know with certainty what to expect just over the horizon. This book will help you to do just that—to know with certainty where our eternal destiny lies and what it will be like when we get there. The Bible tells us all we need to know, and we know we can trust it.

Among many books on unfulfilled prophecy this is one of the best and most stimulating that I have seen for a long time. It ought to be widely read (whether one agrees with every point or not), and covers the main issues in a popular style which has to be admired. All church book tables should have it.

What the Bible Teaches about Guidance

  • Author: Peter Bloomfield
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 204

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

Some people find themselves asking “How can I know God’s will?” Peter Bloomfield’s response is “there is no point asking if a particular event is according to ‘the will of God’ because that is a very ambiguous term.” It has two completely distinct meanings. The right approach to guidance begins by recognizing that distinction. God’s will is either revealed or unrevealed.

The Bible provides principles of conduct that affect every aspect of life, adequately equipping us for every good work. But it must be interpreted correctly. It is all too easy to get wrong guidance out of the Bible because of misreading it.

In Guidance Peter Bloomfield explains the biblical teaching that God has one specific plan for each person’s life, a plan that one’s circumstances and choices fulfill in every detail.

For the Christian thinking through the matter of guidance, this book would make a wonderful starting point. There is so much angst amongst Christians on this issue, which easily leads to rationalization and just plain nonsense. It is good to commend a work full of biblical common sense on the subject.

In this book Peter Bloomfield challenges readers to show maturity in decision making. They are called on to demonstrate that the Bible sets their thought patterns so that their choices in life are a reflection of the directives that God has given us. This book is a very welcome addition to books dealing with the Christian life. It comes from a pastor who has preached through this material, and that orientation of the book makes it particularly useful for others. It sets out clearly the biblical approach, and the questions at the end of each chapter will stimulate further thought.

Today there is much confusion between the authority of Scripture and the authority of the church or that of Christian leaders. John Calvin labored with no such confusion. He pointed out the crucial difference between the apostles and their successors: ‘The former were sure and genuine scribes of the Holy Spirit, and their writings are therefore to be considered oracles of God; but the sole office of others is to teach what is provided and sealed in the Holy Scriptures.’ Peter Bloomfield has sought to apply this necessary insight to some issues raised in modern church life. Hopefully, the result will be greater clarity of thinking, and a more faithful proclamation of gospel truth on the part of the church. This is a most helpful book.

What the Bible Teaches about Heaven

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 123

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

For a long time now, Christians have fretted about the possibility of being so heavenly-minded that they are of no earthly good. Yet in reality we Christians are often wayward and easily lose our bearings. Before we realize what we are doing, we have dropped our eyes from heaven’s glory to the fleeting things of this life. This world is our traveling-place, but we are continually tempted to make it our stopping-place. We are called to travel looking steadfastly forward to glory, but, like little children, we take a few steps and then turn aside to examine some worthless little trinket or to fiddle with something that may be dangerous!

In this thoroughly biblical and practical work Roger Ellsworth shows us that much of what distracts our minds and troubles our hearts in this life comes from our trying to make this world our home. But the truth is, this world is not our home. We are strangers and pilgrims here. Right thoughts of heaven will transform our whole thinking about things on this earth. In fact, the more heavenly-minded we are, the more earthly good we shall be!

This book will suit all ages and stages of the Christian life, and can be given to anyone who needs encouragement to look up. Preachers will find help for their own series in preaching about this wonderful topic. We also see good examples of how to present the gospel to unbelievers while feeding the hungry Christian soul. Warmly recommended!

English Churchman

Roger Ellsworth’s book on heaven addresses a topic misunderstood and misrepresented in the media, the minds of lost masses, and the misguided views of many believers. This well thought out and organized work explores the width, depth, and breadth of Bible teachings on heaven with clear logic and precision. Interspersing literary examples, lyrics from hymns of faith and scholarly research, Ellsworth maintains the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ. . . . This work also enlightens the reader’s view of man’s spirit, soul, and body. Believer and unbeliever alike will find this book a comfort, a caution, and a challenge to live for him, the one who prepares a place for his own in glory.

What the Bible Teaches about Marriage

  • Author: Anthony T. Selvaggio
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 233

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

There is no question that our world today suffers from high divorce rates, rampant sexual promiscuity, and a free and easy attitude to relationships. While we can blame the presence of sin as a reason for this, it does not wholly explain why many Christians seem to struggle with the same sexual and marital problems as the world.

In the belief that this is partly due to the failure of the church to instruct its people about the true nature of redeemed relationships, Anthony Selvaggio takes a thoroughly biblical and immensely practical look at the topics of human sexuality, romance, and marriage, as they are revealed in the Song of Songs. It is his desire that marriages will be restored and enriched as we examine this picture of the divine love of God expressed in the greatest love of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Pastor Selvaggio envisions this book being used by pastors for premarital or marriage counseling. Indeed, it is an excellent resource for that purpose. It may also be profitably used in a class or Bible study for couples, or, better yet, in a one-on-one study between fathers and their teenage sons or mothers and their teenage daughters. Recommended.

What the Bible Teaches about the Trinity

  • Author: Stuart Olyott
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 112

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

Do you have problems understanding what the Bible teaches about the Trinity, or have you had to try to answer people who do not believe that Jesus Christ is God and who deny that the one God is three, and that there are three who are God? Could they possibly be right? How can we answer them?

In this brief book Stuart Olyott shows that what we call “the doctrine of the Trinity” is plainly taught in the Bible, and that it is the foundation for a true understanding of the Christian gospel. The book is written in straightforward language and is intended for the ordinary reader. Although it certainly shows us the error of the modern cults, its main purpose is to lead people to a better understanding of what God has revealed about himself.

Stuart Olyott is always worth reading and listening to. Not only because of his ability to make sure he is understood but also because of his terrier-like attempts at getting to the truth. In this book he deals with the most crucial doctrine of them all. All truth stems from and starts with our understanding of the trinity. Once again we are grateful to Stuart for pointing out this is not a doctrine to be feared. In fact the opposite is true. Not to understand the trinity is terrifying. Read the book!

What the Bible Teaches about Worship

  • Author: Robert L. Dickie
  • Publisher: Evangelical Press
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 155

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

It is the author’s belief that there is, in these days, a stirring within the church of Jesus Christ. People are hungering and thirsting for a deeper and richer experience of the presence of God in worship. Many of the Lord’s people are growing tired with the superficial and silly innovations that have been substituted for the worship of God, and which have been the cause of so many debates, struggles and conflicts within the church.

What is worship? How do we worship? What is acceptable worship?

In this thoroughly biblical and immensely practical work, Pastor Bob Dickie answers such questions by directing us to the clearest example of worship in the Scriptures. In Revelation chapters 4 and 5 the Lord pulls back the curtains and allows us to get a glimpse of what true, biblical worship is. It should be centered on Christ and reflect the example of worship that is taking place in the throne room of heaven right now.

The greatest learning is to be seen in the greatest plainness. This would be a fair description of this book. It deals with a profound subject of the utmost importance in a way that the ordinary reader can both understand and put into practice.
