Luther and His KatieFew of us have heard of Catherine von Bora. And yet, as the beloved wife of Martin Luther, she can very justifiably be seen as one of the most influential figures in the Reformation. She made her home a haven of rest for the storm tossed man that was her husband. Luther once said, ‘Next to God’s Word, the world has no more precious treasure than holy matrimony. God’s best gift is a pious, cheerful, God-fearing wife, with whom you may live peacefully, to whom you may entrust your goods, your body, and your life.’

Sermons of George Whitefield, The (2vol)George Whitefield was an astounding preacher. Though slender of build, he stormed into the pulpit as if he were a giant. It was said that “his voice startled England like a trumpet blast.”  His messages were gospel-focused, simple and clear, bold, descriptive, earnest, and filled with pathos and emotion. Some calculate that he preached more than 18,000 sermons. Two volume set.

Son of God and the New Creation, The1The theme of divine sonship stretches across the pages of the Bible: from Adam in the garden of Eden, through the nation of Israel and King David, and ultimately to Jesus Christ in the New Jerusalem – the Son of God par excellence.  In this volume, renowned biblical scholar Graeme Goldsworthy shows what Christ’s fulfillment of the divine sonship motif means for all who are sons and daughters of God.

1 & 2 Peter & Jude (Preaching the Word)In this exposition of 1 & 2 Peter and Jude, pastor David R. Helm explores these letters in depth, reminding us that present suffering precedes future glories for all who are in Christ. Pointing us to the only steadfast foundation for our faith, this meditative volume reminds us to look to God’s grace for the strength we need to contend for the faith and finish well in light of Christ’s return.

Genesis Factor, TheHere is a book for all who have a healthy uncertainty about life’s big questions – Where did I come from? Is there a God? Does this God care about me?  The authors believe that the answers are found where Christianity began – with the introduction of God and His work in the book of Genesis.  Using the Socratic method, they challenge readers to wrestle with Scripture itself rather than with systematic questions. This candid conversation with Genesis is an ideal apologetic for today’s postmodern culture.

Why care about the Reformation today?

It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther’s theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today.  Today we learn about some of the Reformation Heroes.
Reformation-Heroes 2The Reformation did not happen instantaneously; it was something God patiently arranged over a number of years.

As you read this book, you will learn how the Lord used some people to plant the seeds of church reform long before October 31, 1517, when Martin Luther published his ninety-five theses. Luther’s story is well-known; we trust you will find it interesting and instructive to read about him and about forty others (John Knox, Peter Martyr Vermigli, Zacharias Ursinus, Willem Teellinck, etc.) who contributed to the Reformation – some well known and others not so – most of whom are Reformation heroes.

To provide a more full picture of the many sided Reformation, chapters are also included on the Anabaptist and Counter Reformation movements. The illustrated overview for older Children and Teens concludes with a brief summary of the influence of the Reformation in different areas of life.

Equip Book of the Month: May

Can we talk about islam slider

Can we talk about Islam? by                           Review by Annabel Nixey – Equip Bookclub

Here are three reasons to read this book:

It’s short
Can We Talk about Islam?This book is short. Super short. Don’t get me wrong – it is good to read long books. But sometimes life means a short book is in order. And at 54 pages this one still packs a punch. If we gave books a value-per-page score, ‘Can we talk about Islam?’ would be 9.5/10.

It’s about Islam (and how to talk about it)
I am no expert on Islam. To be honest (to my shame) this is the first book I’ve read specifically on how to talk about Islam.  And it was so clear and so helpful! In his third chapter Tony Payne summarizes the key teachings of Islam, comparing them to Christianity. For example, in Christianity, the problem is our rebellion against God (sin) and hence the solution is atonement to restore a personal relationship with God. Yet in Islam the problem is ignorance or weakness and so the solution is guidance through the prophets (particularly Muhammad) in order to enable submission to Allah.  There’s also a really helpful summary of the diverse strands of Islam. It left me feeling much better equipped to avoid caricatures which depict extremist groups like ISIS as either representative of all of Islam or none of it.

It’s not just about Islam
The hidden gem of this book is chapter two – ‘Why don’t secular humanists want to talk?’ Don’t know what a secular humanist is? As Payne points out, chances are they are your neighbour, boss, dentist and cousin. Secular humanism is the air we breathe. This chapter is an incredibly helpful discussion of what secular humanism is and why secular humanists don’t want to talk about religion – because to them ‘whatever religious belief you have is a matter of personally chosen faith and values and opinion’ (p12). Payne explores and explains why they think this using a really clear illustration (involving a disappearing staircase!) which he admits to nicking from Francis Schaeffer. Well hats off to Mr Schaeffer because it’s a really helpful illustration! I read this chapter thinking – ‘that is what my friends think…ahhhh….that makes sense of why they think that’. It also was also helpful to see ways that I also can slip into a secular humanist mindset.

Managing your Money

Fear, desire and guilt.  Those are often the feelings Christians have about money.  Jesus offers us a better way – a way of being content rather than coveting, generous rather than grasping and peaceful rather than anxious.  Here are some books to help you as you consider this thought.
MONEY COUNTS

Do you have little money, lots of money or something in between? Full of common-sense advice on spending, saving and giving, this book views life and giving in the light of God’s generous grace and his promise of eternal glory.

FAMILY MONEY MATTERS

How we manage our family finances is an important issue.  As Christians our lives should demonstrate different values from those of the world around us. How should we plan financially for the future? Should we ever get into debt? This thoroughly practical book addresses these matters.

CHRISTIANS IN AN AGE OF WEALTH

This book addresses the tough questions about the place and purpose of wealth and material possessions in a Christian’s life.  Blomberg suggests that the sharing of goods and possessions is the key safeguard against both greed and covertness and expands of the concept of giving generously, even sacrificially to those in more need.

Treasure Principle, The (Incl Journal)

CBD PRICE: R165.00

THE TREASURE PRINCIPLE

95% of Christians have never come to terms with a biblical perspective on their material possessions. God has entrusted His wealth to us and called upon us to manage and invest His money.  When Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” they discovered an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and his children maximum pleasure.  This book introduces us to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity.

HEALTH, WEALTH & HAPPINESS

46% of self-identifying Christians believe that God will make them rich if they have enough faith.  Radio & TV proclaim this type of gospel daily – the gospel of prosperity.  It teaches that God wants to fulfill our every desire for health, wealth and happiness and all it takes is sufficient faith.  Is this the gospel?  Or is it just a feel good, self-centered appeal to our materialistic impulses that omits the message of Jesus and the cross?

Echoes of the Reformation

 It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther’s theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today.  Today we learn about 5 truths that shaped the Christian Life.

echoes of reformationHow is the Reformation still relevant today? As political pressure mounts, morality drifts with today’s culture, and evangelicalism becomes more and more refined in a post-Christian world, it’s even more important to hold the convictions of the great Reformation closer than ever. In short, the solas point us to vibrant Christian community as well as personal identity in Christ.

This Bible study examines the five core truths that came from the Reformation, now referred to as the solas. Group members will explore these essential convictions of the faith and emerge more immersed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The solas include:

  • Sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone)
  • Sola gratia (by grace alone)
  • Sola fide (through faith alone)
  • Solus Christus (through Christ alone)
  • Soli Deo gloria (glory to God alone)

As you’ll see in this study, the solas are more than cold Latin terms that academics throw around in church-history books. The five solas, like the Reformation itself, are intensely practical. They were the DNA of the Reformation and are still the DNA of the church today. They are grounded in a real-life, everyday following of Jesus. They’re the most important, basic scriptural truths you can ever believe.  We stand on the shoulders of Christians in the past, and knowing where we came from will help us keep moving forward with passion and biblical clarity.

Echoes of the Reformation Leader Kit contains a Bible Study Book,  1 DVD with a promotional video and another DVD with six 15- to 20-minute video sessions featuring authors Kevin DeYoung, Al Mohler, and Trevin Wax. These panel discussions introduce the topic, overview historical significance, explore the theological meanings of the solas, and include illustrations for applying these key transformative truths.

No wonder they call him Saviour

Easter 2

Six-Hours-One-FridayJesus-the-Son-of-God-Carson
There is a truth greater than all the losses and sorrows of life.  And it can be discovered in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. You are forgiven by a Saviour who died for you, and an empty tomb proclaims that death does not have the final word. This book delves into the meaning of Jesus’ last hours on the cross.  Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning.Carson broadly surveys Jesus’s biblical name as “the Son of God,” and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ’s sonship. The book concludes with the implications of Jesus’s divine sonship for how modern Christians think and speak about Christ, especially in relation to Bible translation and missionary engagement with Muslims across the globe.
