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.

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)

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.

 No little womenNo little women: Amy Byrd

Why are so many well-intentioned women falling for poor – even false – theology? The Devil has been effectively targeting women from the beginning, so why are they often left to fend for themselves in so-called women’s ministries?  Strengthening women in the church strengthens the whole church.  Cultivating resolved, competent women equips them to fulfill their calling as Christ’s disciples and men’s essential allies.

Celebrating the Reformation

 As we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation , CBD will be highlighting books that discuss the contributions of some of the heroes of the Reformation Era. Today we begin with Martin Luther.
Beyond the 95 Theses
Does your knowledge of Martin Luther’s writings start and end with the hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”?

As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation he galvanized, we discover a Martin Luther who was one of history’s most colorful and influential figures. His story is well known, but his powerful writing is often unfamiliar to us.

This illustrated introductory guide to Luther’s life, theology, and works introduces and summarizes his major writings, such as The Bondage of the Will and On the Councils and the Church, and includes, with annotations, the complete Ninety-Five Theses. Stephen Nichols also gives encouragement and guidance for studying Luther’s ethical writings, “table talk,” hymns, and sermons. Includes a select guide for further reading.

“As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, may we not only appreciate the profound ways God used Martin Luther, but may we learn from him. Dr. Nichols gives us a front-row seat on Luther’s life. As we watch, may we have the same boldness and the same lifelong commitment to the gospel.”

—R.C. Sproul, Founder, Ligonier Ministries


“A marvelous mixture of biography, history, theology, and anecdote. If you don’t feel the heartbeat of the Reformation in these pages, check your pulse!”

—Sinclair Ferguson, Coauthor, Church History 101

New Discipleship Series

THE DISCIPLES PATH SERIES HELPS LEADERS TO OFFER A CLEAR, DISCERNABLE PATH OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH TO CHRISTIANS ON THE JOURNEY TO BECOMING MATURE IN CHRIST.

Disciples Path (Vol 1) (Workbook)Disciples Path is a series of resources founded on Jesus’ model of discipleship.  It was intentionally created to make disciples who make disciples. Through its design and structure, every session emphasizes four key attributes of the disciple’s path: progressive, relational, disciplined, and replicable.  The Journey provides a one year mission toward maturity in Christ. It’s a purposeful process covering four volumes, 13 sessions each. It was was created to nurture believers into disciples who make disciples.

While most small-group studies facilitate transformation through relationship and information, these disciple-making resources emphasize the principles of modeling, practicing, and multiplying.

  • Leaders model a biblical life
  • Disciples follow and practice from the leader’s example
  • Disciples become disciple makers and multiply through Disciples Path
