The busyness of our lives and the diversions of this world have the tendency to distract us from the most important person we could ever know: Jesus Christ.

In this thoughtful treatise, two influential pastors guide everyday Christians through the entirety of the Bible, examining seven key aspects of Jesus’s identity and ministry. Beginning in Genesis and ending in Revelation, this book will help readers focus their gaze on Christ, whether studying the promised seed of the woman in Genesis 3 or the reigning lamb on the throne in Revelation 5. Drawing on decades of pastoral experience, Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson have crafted a biblical resource sure to encourage genuine love for the Savior among God’s people for years to come.

Veteran’s Day and Christmas

November 11, 2014 Leave a comment

To some extent Veteran’s Day is like Christmas.  Often times at Christmas we hear the inevitable cries of, “Everyday should be Christmas because we should remember Christ every day of the year.”  This is very true.  We ought to remember those who were willing to put on the uniform and be placed into harm’s way to protect our freedom and liberty.  Without such sacrifice, we would never survive as a nation.

Yet, I’ll admit, I need this day.  I need this day to remind me.  Why?  Because I get so wrapped up in using all the freedoms I have that I forget who purchased it for me.  I forget about those who are willing to do what I could never do.  They have done their jobs so well that I forget they have even done it.  While the fear of terrorism is always present, I must admit, I still think of it as something somewhere else, not here.  This is because our veterans have done their duty and done it well.

So, let me take this time to thank all of the Veterans who might read this blog.  Thank you for your valiant service.

Free E-Book Alert – Sexual Brokenness and the Hope of the Gospel by Russell Moore

November 7, 2014 Leave a comment

The devil has no shortage of tools for destroying lives. And in today’s culture, one of his most effective tools is a distorted view of sexuality.

The wreckage of such a view is everywhere: A marriage is broken by infidelity. A child is abused by a relative. A pastor is forced from his ministry due to a pornography addiction. A college student thinks back on her one-night stand with deep regret and a wounded heart.

Perhaps no other human desire has been so distorted by our culture as sex. To borrow an illustration from C. S. Lewis, sexual desire has become like a piano key that is played at all the wrong times. Though God designed it for beautiful melodies, it has instead soured the music.

But there is good news.

Free E-Book Alert – The Bondage of the Will – A Modern English Abridgment

November 3, 2014 Leave a comment

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. The Bondage of the Will is considered by many to be Luther’s most important book, and it stands today as one of the great classics in Christian history. He wrote in 1525 at the beginning of the Reformation in answer to a work by Erasmus, the classical scholar and humanist (1469-1536). Both Erasmus and Luther rejected many of the erroneous practices of the Roman Catholic church. But Luther went further to challenge the Roman teaching of salvation by works. Erasmus pleased the Pope by writing to uphold the Roman dogma of “free will,” that man could of himself decide to choose for his salvation. Luther saw correctly that the Biblical doctrines of the depravity of man and salvation by faith alone stand together. He declared Erasmus to be an enemy of the faith, and wrote The Bondage of the Will to establish this doctrine at the core of evangelicalism. The Modern English Series are modernized abridgments of great Christian classics, for a blessing to many worldwide.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) was German Roman Catholic monk, theologian, university professor, and church re-former—whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. According to Luther, salvation was a free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by men’s works or the church.

Can Christians Be Political Activists without Hating Each Other?

As the next presidential election comes into view, Americans are deciding where to stand on key issues. The church has often been as politically divided as the culture, but Charles Drew offers an alternative for people who care deeply about their faith, about Christian harmony, and about the church’s calling in the world. In this updated and revised version of A Public Faith (NavPress 2000), Drew helps Christians develop practical biblical convictions about critical social and political issues.

Distinguishing between moral principle and political strategy, Body Broken equips believers to maintain the unity of the church while building their political activism upon a thoughtful and biblical foundation. Drew helps Christians of all political persuasions understand how to practice servanthood, cooperation, and integrity in today’s public square.

Charles D. Drew, M.Div., has pastored for thirty years in Virginia, Long Island, and New York, all in university settings. He presently serves as the senior minister of Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, which he founded in 2000 near Columbia University. He speaks frequently to university groups and churches and is the author of The Ancient Love Song and A Journey Worth Taking. He and his wife, Jean, have two married children and two grandchildren.
