Individual Titles

Be Loyal: Matthew

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 229

As Dr. Wiersbe points out in his preface, "The Gospel according to Matthew" has been called by many Bible scholars the most important single document of the Christian faith. Historians say that Matthew was the most widely read and the most quoted book in the early church. Be Loyal is an expository survey of Matthew, presenting Jesus Christ as King and emphasizing what Dr. Wiersbe feels Matthew wanted to convey to us about Jesus Christ and his ministry. This book can lead you and other readers into a deeper love for, and loyalty to, Jesus Christ, the King of kings.

Be Diligent: Mark

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 176

Mark is the perfect Gospel for space-age people on the go. In this study, Dr. Wiersbe focuses on Jesus Christ the Servant, always on the move, always doing the Father's will and serving others. Mark is the ideal Gospel for busy people who want to discover how to make their lives count for God. Studying Mark's intensely dramatic account of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ will help you appreciate Him as God's Ideal Servant. You will be motivated and encouraged in your own ministry for the Lord . . . and helped increasingly to BE DILIGENT!

Be Compassionate: Luke 1-13

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 168

Jesus called Himself "the Son of man." He showed compassion toward all kinds of people . . . the sinful . . . the rejected . . . the brokenhearted . . . men and women . . . little children. The hopeless and the helpless looked to Him, and He never failed to meet their needs. As you study Dr. Luke's record of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ, you will better understand God's compassion and thereby be motivated to a greater degree to show loving concern for others . . . and to do what you can in God's power to help them in their distress. As never before, Dr. Wiersbe believes, God is calling His people to BE COMPASSIONATE!

  • Discipleship--its cost and compensations
  • Daily living--wasting, spending, or investing your life
  • The right and wrong of riches
  • Facing up to Christ's authority

Today the enemy pressures you to compromise, conform, and quit. But Dr. Luke explains how you can journey to your Jerusalem, carry your cross, and BE COURAGEOUS!

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 192

Follow God's Wisdom! What a difference it makes in your life when you decide to follow God's wisdom instead of man's knowledge!

Don't just "Get Smart" -- BE WISE!

Be Encouraged: 2 Corinthians

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 176

"WE ARE TROUBLED...yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed" (2 Cor. 4:8-9). People who fight battles and carry burdens are the best candidates to receive blessings. That's what Paul told the downhearted Corinthians. They often felt troubled and perplexed, just as believers do today. But God didn't desert them - and He won't desert us either. He comforts His hurting children as only "the God of all comfort" can. This study of 2 Corinthians shows how God can turn your trials into triumphs and your sufferings into service. Discover how to BE ENCOURAGED!

This expository study of Galatians, Paul's first epistle, can help you complete the sentence correctly. And it will clearly tell you one way not to complete it. It's great to be a Christian. It's even better to be a really good Christian and at the same time BE FREE!

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books

Jesus said: "These things I have spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full" (John 15:11). But perhaps you aren't exactly overflowing with joy.

Be Complete: Colossians

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 171

You hear about horoscopes, yoga, transcendental meditation, and a host of other old and new philosophies. Do you need these things? Not if you have Jesus Christ and He is preeminent in your life. If you're in Jesus Christ, you are complete! Too often today we try to mix manmade philosophies and legalistic rules with the Gospel. The Colossians Christians faced a similar dilemma. But Paul tenderly corrected their erring ways. He warned against the temptation to look for spiritual fulfillment from sources other than God. As he did with the Colossians, the Apostle Paul calls you to BE COMPLETE in Christ!

Be Ready: 1 & 2 Thessalonians

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 192

Is the coming of the Lord near? Must any signs take place before he can return? Must God's people go through the Tribulation before Christ can return? These are important questions dealt with in 1 and 2 Thessalonians. But Dr. Warren Wiersbe focuses on the real message of these two Pauline epistles by showing how we need to Be Ready with prepared lives, with a prepared church. From 1 Thessalonians, the author discusses how to walk...

  • in holiness

  • in helpfulness

From 2 Thessalonians:

Be Confident: Hebrews

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 168

When the Book of Hebrews was penned, the ages were colliding and society seemed to be shaking. Hebrews was written to Christians who were wondering what was going on and what they could do about it. As the stability of the old was passing away, their faith was wavering. One major message of Hebrews is BE CONFIDENT! God is shaking things so you might learn to live by faith and not by sight. He wants to build your life on the permanence of the eternal, not on the instability of the temporal. Look to Jesus Christ and BE CONFIDENT!

Be Mature: James

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 189

Born Again Is Only the Beginning! Yes, having Christ as your personal Savior is only the beginning. After that, you have to grow up! Many problems in our lives are caused by spiritual immaturity. God wants us to grow up, not just grow old. And He has given us the formula for maturity in the Epistle of James. In discussing Christian maturity, Dr. Wiersbe shows you:

  • How to learn to be patient
  • How to overcome temptation
  • How to practice what the Bible teaches
  • How to learn to control the tongue
  • How to make peace rather than trouble
  • How to pray and get results

It's all in BE MATURE!

Be Hopeful: 1 Peter

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 155

The people who first read Peter's epistle were familiar with suffering and persecution because of their loyalty to Christ. But Peter warned that something new would soon happen: a "fiery trial" of official persecution was about to begin. Peter wanted to tell them how they could be triumphant for the glory of God. We can expect to suffer for our faith, but we can also be hopeful. God's grace is ours for the asking! Suffering in the will of God leads to the glory of God. We can prepare for the best of God's blessings rather than fear the worst of man's hatred. Look to Jesus Christ and BE HOPEFUL!

Be Alert: 2 Peter, 2 & 3 John, Jude

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 184

Don't Be Fooled by the Merchandisers of Error! Some people who claim to represent the truth are really merchandisers of error. They deceive, mock, and defile, as their mouths speak "great swelling words" (Jude 16).

 

  • Who are these false teachers?
  • How can you recognize them?

Based on 2 Peter, 2 and 3 John, and Jude, this book will help you sharpen your spiritual discernment. Join Dr. Wiersbe as he uncovers the disguises of today's religious impostors. Religious deception is on the rise. Don't be fooled by the masquerade. BE ALERT!

Be Real: 1 John

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 200

How to Be the Person God Wants You to Be:

  • Because how you live means more than what you say
  • Because hypocrisy and hide-and-seek games with worldliness hurt you and those around you
  • Because many feelings that people “fall into” - sentimentality, emotionalism, and lust - aren’t love
  • Because real faith must be based on time-tested truth

Here’s a book, based on the First Epistle of John, that shows you how to be the person you know God wants you to be. BE REAL!

Be Victorious: Revelation

  • Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
  • Publisher: Victor Books
  • Pages: 168

The Book of Revelation is the book of the throne. Its message is that the Lamb has conquered and all who trust Him are overcomers. No matter how dark the day, no matter how severe the opposition, God's people can BE VICTORIOUS! In this expository survey of Revelation, Warren Wiersbe clearly illustrates that prophecy is practical. The Apostle John wrote this New Testament book to encourage suffering saints, not only in his own day, but in every era of church history. It's time to start living in the light of Christ's return and BE VICTORIOUS!
