It’s 15 days to go before the launch of Aaron Armstrong book “I’m A Christian…Now What?” published by Lexham Press. Here’s some appetizers for you before you dig in with the book. Here are my favorite quotes from that book and if you want to order it now, go to this link.
“…when you become a Christian, especially when you’re coming to faith as an adult, you’re starting life over from scratch. You’re a grown-up in body, but a child in your faith, which means these early weeks, months, and years are a crucial time in your faith.”
I’m excited to read something from Rebecca McLaughlin and I’m glad The Good Book Company provided something short and slated for Easter. It would be nice if you could consider getting this one for you or your unbelieving friends.
It’s a bit too early for Easter but it pays to prepare for that season. So The Good Book Company will be releasing this new book by Christian apologist, Rebecca McLaughlin. The launch date is on February 1 but I’ll share some quotes from the book to excite you and help you consider grabbing this book. If you set out to buy it, you can pre-order by clicking this link.
“The Christian message is that Jesus is the Son of God, that he died to take the punishment for the sins of any who will trust in him, that he rose from the dead, and that he welcomes all who will repent and believe to live with him forevermore. It’s not a story that can stop halfway. Christianity without the resurrection would be like Disney’s Frozen without Elsa. The resurrection isn’t a nice-to-have. It’s fundamental to the Christian package.”
For the past years, I’ve been devouring books on church history. It’s not just out of curiosity nor being a marites that makes me want to pick up a book on this kind of topic. I received review copies that have this topic and this year had interesting new releases of church history. The treatment of the authors varies, but I usually get historical fiction and factual narratives. But in Redemption: The Church in Ancient Times brings the best of two worlds that will make kids open the book and dig in.
Happy Friday! Here are some great quotes I would like to share from a book I finished,Contending for the Faith: The Story of the Westminster Assembly, by Joel Beeke and William Boekestein, published by Reformation Heritage Books. You can get your copy by clicking this link.
“A church uses a confession to declare what it believes and teaches. The Bible is the source for all Christian faith, but it is not enough for us to say, “We believe the Bible.Many people claim to believe the Bible while denying what it teaches or disobeying its commands. The Westminster Confession sums up the teaching of God’s Word..”
Neither judge a book by it’s title no matter how cool it is.
I don’t easily give in to flashy book covers but when it comes to titles (and the author) I get too excited when I hear those stand out titles of the book. It serves like a cover too and things to expect. However, there are those whose content doesn’t live up to what the title is.
Good day! Here’s some great quotes I would like to share from a book I recently finished, The Biblical World of Gender, a collection of essays by today’s respected Bible scholars, edited by Celina Durgin and Dru Johnson, published by Cascade Books, an imprint of Wipf and Stock Publishers. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.
“In Israel’s world an individual’s legal status did not derive from an abstract universal notion of personhood but rather from an individual’s particular position within the household. As a result, the Bible betrays little if any awareness of individual human rights. Rather, the mutual obligations, duties, and claims that characterize the kinship circle are the focus. In our world, the individual is variously endowed with power and privilege to act in the individual’s self-interest.”— Sandra Richter
When you hear the word “church”, what things come to your mind? Is it a building, crosses, people praying or weddings? Looking to the Scripture we can the a definitive answer to what the church is. This list provides some essentials of the identity of the church.
The church is us– (Acts 2:41, Eph. 3: 9-11) a group of Christ followers saved by grace through faith alone. Not a building or denomination. The church is the people in a church building or a particular denomination.The Greek work for it is‘ekklesia” which means called out. That means God called us from the world by the preaching of the gospel to be His child, to live by God’s glory, to have fellowship with other believers and reach out the lost for Christ sake.
