A Faith That Endures

  • Author: Brian Croft
  • Series: Reflections
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 128

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

Brian Croft presents this careful examination of Hebrews 11 to encourage enduring faithfulness to Christ in the lives of weary and hurting Christians. Croft studies the Old Testament heroes and the virtue of faith that perseveres to the end.

Taking the examples of men and women of God from Hebrews 11 as well as those who have modeled enduring faith in his own life and experience, Pastor Brian Croft gives practical, pastoral, biblical, and Christ-centered counsel to aid believers in persevering in the way. I highly recommend this resource to pastor and laymen alike.

—Jim Savastio, senior pastor, The Reformed Baptist Church of Louisville

In this short and sweet treatment of Hebrews 11, Brian Croft encourages us to cling to God in Christ and so stand fast. Writing with sober yet joyful realism and with pastoral insight and earnestness, he defines the enduring faith of true believers before guiding us through the gallery of the faithful that the writer to the Hebrews has arrayed, pointing out for us that very faith in the lives of those who have gone before us, bringing us finally to the awful, beautiful portrait of our Lord Christ. With plain and well-grounded exhortations, and with some particularly straight talking to Christ’s under-shepherds, Brian calls us to cultivate the same precious, enduring faith, showing us why we should and how we may so run as to last the course.

—Jeremy Walker, pastor of Maidenbower Baptist Church, Crawley, England

Brian Croft is a faithful shepherd of souls and expositional preacher. These sermons, arising from that crucial context, will be valuable to other pastors and other believers in general who are hazarding their way to the Celestial City. Endurance is a theme often lacking in church discussion today but is one of immense pastoral importance. Croft’s book provides a timely, helpful, Christ-centered discussion of this important topic.

Brian Croft is senior pastor of Auburndale Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of several books about pastoral ministry. Through his blog, Practical Shepherding, he seeks to equip pastors and leaders to faithfully shepherd God’s people.

God’s Good News in the Parables of Jesus

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Series: Reflections
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 128

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

A father’s rebellious son leaves home. A man discovers treasure hidden in a field. A woman pesters a judge until he is willing to hear her case. A farmer frets over storing his crop. Drawing from the common experiences of his hearers, Jesus told these and other stories in such riveting fashion that he easily demanded attention. But as Roger Ellsworth shows, Jesus had a higher purpose than merely captivating his audiences. His parables were designed to move his listeners from the everyday world to the eternal world and to proclaim the good news of salvation.

Roger Ellsworth is the pastor of Parkview Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee. He is the author of over 50 books, including Opening Up Revelation.

God’s Good News in the Miracles of Jesus

  • Author: Roger Ellsworth
  • Series: Reflections
  • Publisher: Day One
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 128

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

Jesus punctuated his public ministry with astounding feats. He caused the lame to walk, the blind to see and the deaf to hear. He fed multitudes and stilled storms. He healed the sick and cast out demons. He even raised three people from the dead. And he put the finishing touch on his amazing ministry by rising from his own grave.

As Roger Ellsworth demonstrates, all of Jesus’ miracles emphatically proclaim his identity. He was God in human flesh. His miracles tell us the truth about him and about the salvation he came to provide.

Pastoral wisdom and personal warmth are hallmarks of Roger Ellsworth’s commentaries. Reading God’s Good News in the Parables of Jesus and reflecting on the various points raised will no doubt encourage greater appreciation of the parables and greater love for Christ.

—Barry King, general secretary, Grace Baptist Partnership, London

In brief compass Roger Ellsworth provides clear, sound exposition and application of the parables of Jesus. This volume with be very helpful to pastors and laypeople as they study the Gospels.

Jean Wild shares joy and encouragement with Christian seniors in this collection of 52 readings from the Bible. Wild enriches each reading with reflections, prayer, and selections from well-loved hymns.

This book came to me at just the right moment—a month after I turned 65! How great are the reminders Jean gives us for the ‘third age’ of our lives—to ask the Lord to ‘speak in the stillness’, to remember that ‘God holds the key of all unknown’, that ‘Jesus knows our every weakness’, that we are to continue to ‘run the straight race’, that ‘When morning gilds the skies’ we can say ‘May Jesus Christ be praised.’

—John Goldingay, professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Jean Wild is one of God’s ordinary people. Through many years of walking with God she has experienced high and low points. In every circumstance there has been a cheerful smile and a word of encouragement for others. Her faith has been sustained by the Bible and a love of traditional hymns. This book is for similar ordinary people, looking for words of encouragement, hope and inspiration, through all the changing scenes of life.

—Declan Flanagan, chief executive of Rural Ministries and chairman of Barnabas Adventure Centres

Jean shares the timeless truths from the good old hymns, in an encouraging and uplifting manner. Many seniors will be particularly blessed as they recall ‘bygone days’.

—John Townley, senior pastor, Light and Life Free Methodist Church, Cornwall

This book is packed full with rich gospel treasure. My heart was warmed by this thoughtful display of Jesus, our glorious Lord and Saviour. My daily quiet times have always included my old Methodist hymn book, and it is so helpful to find a resource that guides us into the deep waters of the great Christian hymns. In these meditations you will be reminded time and again that in life or death, Jesus is our only hope and comfort.

Paul Blackham, All Souls Langham Place, London.

Jean Wild converted to Christianity in 1963 and has had a long and varied career, keeping with the central theme of loving people and the Scriptures. She specializes in senior-citizen outreach.

A Tender Plant from Dry Ground

  • Author: Timothy J.E. Cross

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

Timothy J. E. Cross presents Isaiah 53 as one of the most remarkable chapters in the whole Bible. Though it was written some 700 years before the birth of Jesus, Cross believes that it contains one of the clearest views of the person and work of Christ in all of the Scriptures, and that it gives us a distilled New Testament theology.

Isaiah 53 is one of the most remarkable chapters of the Bible. It is the Old Testament version of the New Testament gospel of Christ, and so could be used to present the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ even to those who do not accept the divine inspiration of the New Testament Scriptures. This devotional exposition of Isaiah 53 by Dr. Timothy Cross brings out something of the wonder of the Word of God and the glory of the Christ of God. In explaining Isaiah’s verses, the author covers almost every facet of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ predicted so clearly by Isaiah in his prophecy centuries beforehand. I commend Dr. Cross for this excellent work

—Cecil Johnson, president, Christian Bible College, Rocky Mount, North Carolina

In 27 short chapters, Cross takes us through the verses that are the high watermark of Old Testament prophecy, Isaiah 52:13 to 53:12. . . . Although A Tender Plant from Dry Ground can be read in a single sitting, the book is ideal for a month’s daily readings for those young in the Christian faith and also for those not so young in the faith.

—Mike Moore, Christian Witness to Israel

Timothy J.E. Cross is a graduate of the University of Wales. He is an experienced preacher, and the author of over 20 popular Christian books, including The Gospel according to Isaiah: A Devotional Commentary on Isaiah 53.
