  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

If Christians were to vote for their favorite Bible character, Barnabas would surely be in the top ten. Most of us feel drawn to this warm-hearted disciple, who so wonderfully lives up to his name, “Son of Encouragement.” In these character studies based on passages in Acts, Robert Dale helps you to appreciate, and encourages you to imitate, this wonderful man, who himself is a reflection of a still greater man, our Lord Jesus Christ, the greatest encourager of all.

This is a very uplifting book. Here you will find copious investigation, studious exposition and judicious application from the biblical record of a generous man so full of Christ that he was a constant encouragement to the church. What more could you ask for?

John Benton, editor, Evangelicals Now

It is easy to underestimate the apostle Barnabas, who is overshadowed by his fellow worker, the apostle Paul. Robert Dale’s study displays Barnabas’ godly character, increases our appreciation of his role in the growth of the New Testament church, and draws numerous insights of application for personal godliness and the work of the ministry. Recommended for pastors and lay readers.

Samson: Man of Strength, Man of Weakness

  • Author: Colin D. Jones
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 160

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The story of Samson is one of the most exciting and intriguing in the whole of Scripture. It is a simultaneous insight into his incredible strength and persistent weakness. We marvel at the thrilling accounts of unorthodox battles and awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical power. Sadly, we also wonder at his apparent inability to learn from his own mistakes as he follows his passions to their inevitable end. This rollercoaster of a story sweeps us from the rich promises accompanying his birth, through the tragedies and triumphs of his life. The story almost ends with the pitiable sight of him as the blind captive of his life-long enemies, the Philistines. Yet, there is still one surprising twist to this epic tale—victory through death. Throughout the story, we trace the contrasts with the great Judge of Israel—Christ.

Colin Jones has made an enigmatic narrative powerfully relevant . . . Careful exegesis, confronting the hard parts with honesty, and comparing and contrasting with the life of Jesus Christ, together with practical application, makes this commentary a powerful blend of personal Bible study aid, a group discussion starter, and a challenge for every Christian life. An accessible must for anyone interested in the life and times of Samson and its relevance for today.
