"Oh, how I love your law. Your statutes are my heritage for ever; they are the joy of my heart ..." Psalm 119:97 - 111 "At their best," writes Don Carson, "Christians have saturated themselves in the Word of God." The means by which God sanctifies men and women, setting them apart as his own people, is the Word of truth. Many people, however, would admit that they have allowed the pressures of life to crowd out serious and thoughtful reading of the Bible. Also, in a culture that has moved away from a Christian worldview, the Bible's unwavering proclamations and fantastic stories seem ever stranger. The big picture of the Bible is gradually fading from view. For the Love of God encourages us to face these challenges. Now, more than ever, the need to read the Bible and to grasp its relevance for our lives is critical. This companion volume to 'For the Love of God - Vol. 1', follows Robert Murray M'Cheyne's Bible-reading plan, taking you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the Old Testament once. Don Carson has written thought-provoking comments and reflections to accompany one of each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers a perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan, in order to deepen our understanding of his sovereignty and the unity and power of his Word.

Religion by Christopher E. L. Toote,Ph. D., D.Min.
Dr. Christopher Toote has written a master-preacher guide for pastors and teachers to learn how to outline a sermon, access a biblical text, understand multiple ways to interpret the Bible, and provide applicable meaning in today's world. Dr. Toote understands how to prepare, present, and apply God's word. He brings a scholar's mind and a pastor's heart to his writing. This work is drawn from a deep well of experience in Christian and secular higher education and a lifelong practice of biblical exposition. He's been on both sides of the pulpit- as preacher and parishioner. He has lived out the gospel on campus and preached and taught faithfully in congregations. This book reflects years of hard work from a student of God's word. He understands what it's like to work throughout the week and be responsible for the work of the word on a weekly basis. When I read preaching textbooks, I would rather read from those who prepare a new sermon regularly rather than a preacher who only speaks occasionally. Dr. Toote knows the weekly process of prayer, reflection, study, and delivery. He knows the experience of struggling through a Saturday night after a busy week with little time to prepare a message. He understands the demands of a congregation, and he has walked with people through life and death. These sermon outlines reflect his pastoral experience. In this three volume collection, he offers the student of God's word 150 teachable, ready-to-use outlines for teaching on relationships, personal discipleship, and trust in Jesus as Lord. He mines treasures from 36 books of the Bible and over 113 key passages and scripture readings from both the Old and New Testaments. Dr. Toote explains favorite passages clearly and pushes the reader to study unfamiliar passages carefully. His applications are personal, practical, and profound. Each volume covers a broad sweep of scripture and yet has distinctive themes that emerge. Volume one teaches us how to use the Bible to deepen and develop our relationship with the church, our families and our parents. The second volume deals with discipleship: how to grow personally in our walks with the Lord. The third volume focuses on Lordship: how to trust Jesus in all spheres of life. William D. Shiell, Ph.D. President Professor of Pastoral Theology and Preaching Northern Seminary Lisle, Illinois
Kay Arthur’s life–changing New Inductive Study Series has sold more than 1.4 million copies. Each exciting examination of a different book of the Bible brings readers face–to–face with the truth of God’s precepts, promises, and purposes—in just minutes a day. Ideal for individual study, one–on–one discipleship, group discussions, and quarterly classes. This inductive study of Hebrews reveals the assurance that Jesus is our high priest who makes intercession for all of God’s children. As readers learn to keep their focus on Jesus and rely on His faithfulness in all situations, they gain a deeper understanding of God’s grace and provision. Brief exercises provide tools to help readers note key words, list important insights, question and reflect on the text, and discover God’s answers for themselves.
One objective all Christians hold in common is to grow in maturity and faithfulness. Achieving that goal, however, is a constant and difficult challenge. Ethicist Kenneth W. M. Wozniak shows how the author of the epistle to the Hebrews argued that the mature Christian life is a disciplined one lived consistently in the moral realm of human experience. Although the authority for such living traditionally has been the picture of Jesus as found in the Gospels, that picture is only a partial and incomplete one. It does not include Hebrews’ essential depiction of the current, living Jesus—both exalted Son and High Priest—who is the focus of worship and whom Christians claim to follow. Wozniak argues that only the often-ignored Jesus of Hebrews, when coupled with the Jesus pictured in the Gospels, is the complete Jesus Christians must obey, emulate, and implant within themselves if they are to live as mature followers of Jesus; it is to this Jesus that they must respond if they are to live faithfully as those who claim “Jesus is Lord!”
Hebrews’ warnings and appeals (‘Don’t go back, do go on’) are needed by Christians teetering on the slippery slope of backsliding or simply standing still. For the eager believer, still running the race, this letter offers a new perspective on both the Old Testament and the Lord Jesus.
