40 Days to the Cross: Reflections from Great Thinkers

  • Editors: Rebecca Van Noord & Jessi Strong
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

Immerse yourself in the season of Lent with 40 Days to the Cross. Reflect on the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ with writings from great thinkers—including early church fathers, medieval writers and influential pastors. This devotional will guide you through a time of confession, reading, and reflection during the 40 days leading to Easter.

Christians from many church traditions have marked the occasion of Jesus’ death and resurrection by a period of fasting known as Lent. The traditional calendar for Lent goes from Ash Wednesday to Easter, with exceptions for Sundays (always a feast day). 40 Days to the Cross will help you contemplate our shared experience of Jesus’ death and resurrection—the very center of our faith.

By His Wounds You Are Healed

  • Pages: 175

In his letter to the church of Ephesus, the Apostle Paul defines our identity and security in Christ. He tells us in detail of the real benefits we have as daughters of God. He shows how these benefits equip us to reclaim our identity in Christ. And he draws a straight line from all these truths to the heart of our insecurities today.

This study of Ephesians walks straight through the Scriptures and shows how each truth presented is particularly applicable to the struggles we face as women at every stage of life.

Embracing God as Father: Christian Identity in the Family of God

  • Authors: Daniel Bush and Noel S. Due
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 122

The image of the Prodigal Father is striking—God searches for the lost and weary to save them. Once saved, we are adopted into his family, through Christ, to become sons and daughters of the one and only Father. In this theologically rich and deeply personal book, Daniel Bush and Noel S. Due show us the loving heart of the Father toward his children. Jesus said, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9)—he and the Father are one in their love and joy and desire to bless. Embracing God as Father helps us see God as he truly is and see who we are as his sons and daughters.

Take your study even further with the Embracing God as Father: Study Guide by Lee Beckham. Reflection questions guide you through the book as you explore what it means to be a son or daughter of God the Father. The editable answer boxes will sync across all Logos platforms—desktop, tablet and mobile apps—so you can take your notes with you.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Live in Liberty: The Spiritual Message of Galatians

  • Authors: Daniel Bush and Noel S. Due
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 318

A systemic problem plagues the local and global church: we habitually lose the gospel. The gospel has been equated with everything from personal prosperity to laws for virtuous living. But all such perceptions paralyze the mission of the church, which is aimed at finding true abundant and joyful life in Christ.

In Galatians, the Apostle Paul engages in a passionate defense of the gospel. It may be a short book, but the consequences of its teaching are truly enormous. Martin Luther found such joy and peace in its pages that he said, “The Epistle to the Galatians is my epistle. To it I am as it were in wedlock. It is my Katherine”—Luther’s beloved wife.

The critical message of Galatians takes us into the heart of an experience—the enjoyment of God’s presence and everlasting peace—one which sets us free to love and be loved. In Live in Liberty, Daniel Bush and Noel Due bring out the spiritual message of Paul’s words, helping you apply it to your mind and soul so that you may experience the liberating presence of God. Also included is a study guide by Lee Beckham.

  • Editor: Michael Grigoni
  • Series: Studies in Faithful Living
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

Abraham’s story isn’t that different from ours. It’s about responding to God’s call, journeying with Him through life, facing challenges, and growing as a result of them. Fundamentally, it’s about the change that occurs because of redemption. In Abraham: Following God's Promise, you’ll walk through life with Abraham and his family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence

  • Authors: Derek R. Brown, Miles Custis, Douglas Mangum, and Wendy Widder
  • Editor: John D. Barry
  • Series: Studies in Faithful Living
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

Jacob’s life was characterized by deception. He deceived his father to obtain his brother’s blessing and was later tricked by Laban. Throughout the many ups and downs of his life, Jacob struggled to recognize God’s presence. Even so, God remained with Jacob—just as He remains with believers today. In Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence, you’ll walk through life with Jacob and his family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

  • Authors: Derek R. Brown, Miles Custis, Douglas Mangum, and Matthew M. Whitehead
  • Editor: Michael Grigoni
  • Series: Studies in Faithful Living
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

At the beginning of Joseph's story, his life seems ideal. However, Joseph's life would quickly turn tragic. Through it all, Joseph remained faithful to God, and God never abandoned him. Joseph’s story teaches us a profound lesson: No matter our circumstances or others’ actions, God will accomplish His purpose. In Joseph: Understanding God's Purpose, you’ll walk through life with Joseph and his family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

Mary: Devoted to God’s Plan

  • Editor: Michael Grigoni
  • Authors: Miles Custis, Douglas Mangum, Matthew M. Whitehead, Rebecca Brant, John D. Barry, and Elizabeth Vince
  • Series: Studies in Faithful Living
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The underlying theme of Mary’s story isn’t that different from ours. Her story teaches us a profound lesson: the life of faith is made up of a series of steps that bring us closer to the fulfillment of God’s will, but not necessarily farther from the challenges and struggles involved with moving ahead. In Mary: Devoted to God's Plan, you’ll walk through life with Mary and her family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

When You Want to Yell at God: The Book of Job

  • Author: Craig Bartholomew
  • Series: Transformative Word
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

Experience the book of Job through a different set of eyes. In When You Want to Yell at God, Craig Bartholomew asks us to let go of the Job we think we know so we can get to know the real man. Job’s story refutes the idea that what goes around comes around. Suffering is not always the result of wrong behavior, and right behavior does not always guarantee blessing. But God is always faithful. Looking at Job as the height of biblical poetry, Bartholomew helps us see just how beautiful and touching this man’s struggle with God really is.

Cutting Ties with Darkness: 2 Corinthians

  • Author: John D. Barry
  • Series: Transformative Word
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

The story behind 2 Corinthians is one of pain and heartache. The Apostle Paul is wrestling to maintain his relationship with the young church in Corinth that he established. Paul writes this deeply personal letter to pick up the pieces of a broken relationship. We all have painful stories and relationships that are on the rocks. In Cutting Ties with Darkness, John D. Barry explores how we deal with these scars in light of Jesus’ example. How do we discern when to reconcile and when to walk away? In these relationships, our own judgment can become clouded. Paul tells us that we must cut ties with the darkness—both within ourselves and in others—before we’re able to rebuild our lives on the redemption of Jesus.

  • Pages: 44

Greed, power, selfish gain. We can easily get caught up in the values that guide our world. But on a mountainside in Galilee, Jesus spoke about the way of a different kingdom. He spoke about loving enemies, giving generously, and living without hypocrisy. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus shows us what it means to truly live.

Does your life reflect the work of Christ? Do your relationships with others display his love? In Ephesians, Paul calls us to a life transformed by Christ’s work.

  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 75

At some point, everyone experiences real suffering—pain, disappointment, sickness, abuse. Paul’s message to the Colossian church—and to us—is that suffering isn’t senseless or worthless. Chained in a Roman prison, Paul tells us how suffering can be an opportunity for Christ to show his power and glory in us.

  • Pages: 78

It’s easy to get tangled up in the cares of this world and forget what’s important in life. When we lose sight of the big picture, James reminds us what truly matters: simply the gospel. He challenges us to be “doers of the Word, and not hearers only.” The gospel should define how we think, feel, and act.

  • Pages: 98

Peter shows us that we are refugees. His letter, written to persecuted Christians, is one of hope. Although we may face trials and experience pain and confusion in our life journeys, our inheritance is “kept in heaven.” Like early Christians, we are en route to a far greater kingdom. And we are not alone in our journey—Jesus shows us the way. He bears our burdens and teaches us how to live.

  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 44

What does active faith look like in the midst of struggle? When false teachers threatened the spiritual health of the early church, Jude and Peter urgently called early Christians to faithful lives that demonstrated mercy, love, and wisdom. These books show us what it means to grow in faith and respond to the love that Christ has for us.

  • Publication Date: 2014

What does it mean to love “in deed and truth?” For John, following Jesus means fearlessly loving all those whom Jesus served. In three short letters, John challenges the church to reach out to those in the margins and embody radical hospitality—just like Jesus.

Ruth: Hope for the Marginalized

  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 36

Ruth was an outcast in Israelite society. As a widow and a Moabite, she was considered the least of God’s people. Yet God drew her from the fringe of society and incorporated her into both the community of Israel and his plan of salvation. In Ruth, we find a story of love, loyalty, and compassion. And we see how God works through ordinary people to achieve his great purposes.

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 52

Who do you turn to in good times and bad? In the Psalms, we find an ancient people worshiping God in all types of situations—praise, anger, thankfulness, frustration, and sadness. Their cries and praises abandon facades. The Psalms reflect genuine worship and encourage us to turn to God in any situation.

  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 34

Jonah was a rebel prophet. When God wanted him to preach a message of hope to the city of Nineveh, Jonah fled in the opposite direction. His story of failure shows us the depths of God’s mercy—both to the prophet and to an undeserving people—and challenges us to be ambassadors of that mercy.

Malachi: Easy Doesn’t Change the World

  • Author: John D. Barry
  • Series: Not Your Average Bible Study
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 54

So often we affirm God’s love until things go wrong. In anger, anxiety, or pain, we doubt his goodness or involvement in our lives. Like the Israelites of Malachi’s day, we cry out, “How have you loved us?” The words of the prophet Malachi both comfort us with God’s love and challenge us to reciprocate that love—even in dark times. Malachi shows us that we need a Savior.
