Drawing Near

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Crossway Books
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 400

It’s a fact of life: our health declines if we don’t nourish our bodies every day with food and water. That’s true physically. It’s true spiritually as well. If we neglect to regularly feed our souls on the Holy Scriptures, our faith becomes weak and we start to lose touch with our Savior. Growth is stifled—if it happens at all. Drawing Near, used daily in combination with God’s Holy Word, can’t only help bring you closer to God but also keep you from spiritual stagnation. This book will guide you in a growing relationship with him.

First Love

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 72

In First Love John MacArthur Jr. asserts that what’s been lost can be found. This book can help you restore the fire and conviction of your first love for Christ by helping you develop a clearer understanding of his character, his glory, and his love for you.

Hard To Believe

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 215

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 Christian teaching, Dr. John MacArthur serves up the unvarnished truth of what Christ taught and lived. In simple, compelling terms, he spells out what is required of those who would follow Him. Going beyond Jesus’ life to include the crucifixion and resurrection, MacArthur shows readers that Jesus modeled the commitment and loving obedience he requires of us by making the ultimate sacrifice for humankind.

How to Survive in a World of Unbelievers

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 184

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, plumbs the depths of Jesus’ final words of encouragement to us, based on John 13–16. 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, pride, and personal achievement as marks of success?
  • How do you retain your Christian ethics when you 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?

Safe In The Arms Of God

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 172

“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 youngsters—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?

Saved Without A Doubt

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 187

Do you ever struggle with the insecure feeling of not knowing for sure if you will go to heaven? Is there any way to overcome that doubt? With pastoral love and concern, John MacArthur answers the second question with an authoritative yes! He carefully examines the biblical texts affirming the forever quality of salvation, but does not ignore the troubling passages that seem to indicate otherwise.

Successful Christian Parenting

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 235

More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting, and put it into practice. In Successful Christian Parenting, pastor/teacher John MacArthur presents time-proven principles of biblical parenting clearly and carefully to help parents make sense of their duties before God and to bring up their children in the ways of the Lord.

The Body Dynamic

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 156

What is the church? Many conceive it to be anything from well-structured, wealthy, highly organized institutions to underground cell groups with no money or structure. But what is the biblical description of the church? How do we express its identity and fulfill Christ’s desire for it? God has provided us with a clear blueprint of how the body of Christ is to work in the world. But that plan is useless and unfulfilled unless you and I make it part of our lives. My prayer is that as you study and apply the principles you learn in this book, you’ll become an effective and key member of the church, the body of Christ.

The Book On Leadership

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 208

Our country is facing a leadership crisis, with fewer leaders available than are needed. Even more distressing, the church is facing the same crisis. Failures in church leadership seem to be at an epidemic level, reminding us of the adage, “As the leaders go, so go the people.” With so much at stake, how can we raise up effective leaders who have genuine and lasting impact on their charge? Author John MacArthur writes on more than 60 traits every leader needs. These elements of character form the framework from which MacArthur details the qualifications and responsibilities of effective leaders, no matter if they’re full-time staff members or Christians seeking to serve God at church, home, work, and with friends.

The Fulfilled Family

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 121

With traditional family values in decline and under assault, how can parents convey Godly principles and morals amid competing messages? In The Fulfilled Family, John MacArthur, respected Bible teacher as well as experienced father and grandfather, takes a look at strategy for families as outlined in Ephesians 5 and 6.

The Only Way to Happiness: The Beattitudes

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Moody Press
  • Publication Date: 1980
  • Pages: 210

“It’s been more than 20 years since I first preached through the Beatitudes. That series marked a major turning point in my ministry and the life of our church. The poignant message of these verses seemed to jolt our congregation with a new sense of urgency and seriousness about the discipleship to which our Lord calls us. It also awakened my heart as never before to the profound privilege Christians have as citizens of a heavenly kingdom. And at the same time, the spirit of our fellowship seemed to be infused with a vibrant, unprecedented joy that, thankfully, has never diminished.”

The Master’s Plan for the Church

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Moody Press
  • Publication Date: 1991
  • Pages: 266

The Master’s Plan for the Church is a revised and expanded edition of Shepherdology by John F. MacArthur Jr. Some contemporary church leaders fancy themselves businessmen, media figures, entertainers, psychologists, philosophers, or lawyers. Yet those notions contrast sharply with the symbolism Scripture employs to depict spiritual leaders. In 2 Timothy 2, for example, Paul uses seven different metaphors to describe the rigors of leadership. Each of those images evokes ideas of sacrifice, labor, service, and hardship. They speak eloquently of the complex and varied responsibilities of spiritual leadership. Not one of them makes out leadership to be glamorous. That’s because it’s not supposed to be glamorous. Leadership in the church—and the author is speaking of every facet of spiritual leadership, not just the pastor’s role—is not a mantle of status to be conferred on the church’s aristocracy. It isn’t earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. It doesn’t necessarily fall to those who are successful in business or finance. It isn’t doled out on the basis of intelligence or talent. Its requirements are faultless character, spiritual maturity, and a willingness to serve humbly.

The Pillars of Christian Character

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Crossway Books
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 199

“It is my desire that this book would awaken you and encourage your heart toward the key spiritual attitudes that will motivate and transform your life from the inside out. With that in mind we will discuss 13 fundamental attitudes, or pillars if you will, of Christian character that Scripture teaches all genuine followers of Christ must possess and be continually developing. It is not an exhaustive list, but each attitude is essential for mature Christian behavior.”—John MacArthur

The Power of Suffering

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Publication Date: 1995
  • Pages: 192

John MacArthur discusses the reasons trials come our way and how believers can learn valuable lessons from God as a result of suffering. Strengthening your faith in the refiner’s fire for everyone who has ever faced profound trials, physical or spiritual, and found themselves asking “Where is God in the midst of the pain?” The Power of Suffering examines the reality of pain and trials in the Christian life and offers a plausible, thoroughly biblical explanation for the deep valleys each of us inevitably cross.

The Truth War

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 215

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. As a result, many churches and Christians have been deceived. Worse still, they propagate the deception that poses itself as Truth! 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 Ultimate Priority

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Moody Press
  • Publication Date: 1983
  • Pages: 158

This book is a call to personal worship of the thrice holy God. It’s a call to a radically different type of living on the part of the believer; to a way of life that seeks to worship God continually—not just on Sunday. The call is new in the sense that Christians in our time have generally missed God’s emphasis. Reading this book will force you to encounter our God in all his glory. An obedient response will transform you into a true worshiper, fulfilling the ultimate priority.

The Vanishing Conscience

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Word Publishing
  • Publication Date: 1994
  • Pages: 255

In a world obsessed with self-esteem and moral tolerance, talk of sin and guilt is taboo-even within the church. If you’re concerned about today’s trend of shifting blame and denying guilt, you’ll find The Vanishing Conscience a fascinating read. This timeless work is a powerful indictment against worldly attitudes toward sin and guilt, and a potent reminder of how to deal with sin’s presence in our lives.

Twelve Extraordinary Women

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 201

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.

Twelve Ordinary Men

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 198

Best-selling author John MacArthur examines the twelve men that Christ chose as his disciples and helps us discover how we can transform our own imperfections into usable tools to impact others. Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God’s work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men—fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots—and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. MacArthur draws principles from Christ’s careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today’s modern disciple—you.

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 127

What the Bible Says About Parenting

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 243

More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting, and put it into practice. In What the Bible Says About Parenting, pastor/teacher John MacArthur presents time-proven principles of biblical parenting clearly and carefully to help parents make sense of their duties before God and to bring up their children in the ways of the Lord. In addition to this new edition (previously titled Successful Christian Parenting), there is also a resource kit and two workbooks available to help Christian parents instruct their children in a godly manner.

Why Government Can’t Save You

  • Author: John MacArthur
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 190

Though the Lord relentlessly proclaimed the law of God, he did not come as a political deliverer or social reformer. He did not issue a call for changes, even by peaceful means. Nor did Jesus rally supporters in a grandiose attempt to “capture the culture” for morality or greater political and religious freedoms. Rather, his divine calling was to rescue the lost souls of individual men and women from sin and hell.

“A certain amount of healthy and balanced concern about current trends in government and the community is acceptable, as long as we realize that such interest is not vital to our spiritual lives, our righteous testimony or the advancement of the kingdom of Christ. Above all, the believer’s political involvement should never displace the priority of preaching and teaching the gospel because the morality and righteousness that God seeks is the result of salvation and sanctification.”—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 by 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

“To devote all, or even most, or our time, energy, money, and strategy to putting a facade of morality on the world or the appearance of ‘rightness’ over our governmental and political institutions is to badly misunderstand our roles as Christians in a spiritually lost world.”—John MacArthur

In this book find out your Christian responsibility to government and political causes.

The New King James Version Bible

  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • Publication Date: 1982

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the “Authorized Version.” Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better “readability.” It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the “Western” or “Byzantine” manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
