Basis of Christian Unity

Basis of Christian Unity

by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Christian unity is the result of a shared faith in Christ and His gospel. This is what emerges from Dr. Lloyd-Jones' consideration of John 17 and Ephesians 4 in the addresses to the Westminster Fellowship republished here. His presentation was given against the background of the ferment of discussion and debate engendered by the ecumenical movement of the time and demonstrated that unity is never something arrived at by ignoring or minimizing truth. The debates have moved on, but this lucid examination of the issues underlying Christian unity remains as relevant as when first presented in 1962. It points to timeless truths which should never be obscured.

Da Vinci Code on Trial

Da Vinci Code on Trial

by Stephen Clark

In this book the author sifts the evidence for the claims found in Dan Brown's best seller, The Da Vinci Code, that Jesus married Mary Magdalene, that the early church covered up the real message of Jesus and that the Bible's account of Jesus is false. After giving a bird's eye view of the novel and explaining why so many find Dan Brown's 'case' to be convincing, Stephen Clark shows why the truth about Jesus is the most important thing we can ever consider. Having set out the Bible's account of Jesus and its relevance to our lives, he then goes on to demonstrate that The Da Vinci Code contains basic inaccuracies and errors and points out why the evidence can in no way support Dan Brown's 'case'. In a final chapter he considers the evidence for believing that the New Testament is historically trustworthy and reliable and that Jesus did in fact rise from the dead. In doing so he presents a compelling case for believing what the Bible says about Jesus. By the end of the book it becomes clear that what matters is not only what we make of Jesus, but what the real Jesus makes of us. This is an easy-to-read book, which does not avoid difficult questions. 'Technical' matters are discussed in a number of appendices. This ensures that while the book reads easily, those who wish to dig deeper will find the answers to their questions.

Is That You, Lord?

Is That You, Lord?

by Gary E Gilley

We live in a world of communication - telephones, the internet and satellite serve to connect people all over the world. Still, communication is messy business. Poor call quality, dropped lines and misdials are all too common and frustrating ... and that is before we get to try and understand what the other person is really saying. Perhaps this is how we feel about communicating with God. When the Bible was seen as the central means of dialogue it wasn't so bad, but the new and 'improved' methods popularized by modern movements and mystics have disillusioned many individuals. The quest to 'discover the will of God', discern the mysterious promptings of the Spirit, and open the floodgates of divine communication are all hot topics in popular Christian culture, and cause much unnecessary anguish and confusion. But what does the Bible say? Dr Gary E. Gilley shows us, in clear and precise language, what God's Word teaches on this important subject. Essential reading for pastors, teachers, college students, and anyone interested in the Holy Spirit's communication to humanity, Is that you, Lord? will guide you to biblical soundness and Christian sanity.

New Creationism

New Creationism

by Andrew Garner

In the increasingly secular age in which we live, it is all too easy to forget that the major disciplines of science were founded by men of broadly Christian convictions. Their names are perhaps familiar to us - Boyle, Ray, Hooke, Newton, Faraday - but there is often an embarrassed silence concerning the spiritual beliefs that motivated these scientific giants. Like the astronomer, Kepler, these men perceived that in their scientific insights they were ‘thinking God's thoughts after him'. Today, however, there is a sense of collective amnesia about the religious motivations of these men. Over the last two or three centuries, science has become almost completely disconnected from its biblical roots, with the result that the academic culture in which science is practiced today is one of tacit - if not explicit - atheism. Nowhere is this more evident than in the scientific study of how the universe began and developed - the field of origins. This book has been written in the conviction that the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis - the Bible's book of beginnings - provide a trustworthy and accurate account of the early history of the universe.

Not to Destroy

Not to Destroy

by Linus Chua

In Matthew 5:17-48, we see the Lord Jesus speaking clearly about His relationship to the law of the Old Testament and about how His people should understand and respond to that law. Unfortunately, this important passage of Scripture often is either misunderstood or totally ignored by many Christians today. In Not to Destroy, But to Fulfill, Linus Chua presents what he believes is a proper understanding of this crucial passage. He also seeks to draw out some important applications and implications for the modern Christian.

Real Face of Atheism

Real Face of Atheism

by Ravi Zacharias

Atheism is a world without God. Its true nature--whether disguised in Eastern mysticism or American cynicism--is despair. In this thought-provoking and witty book, Ravi Zacharias provides Christians a clear apologetic for their faith. Formerly published as "A Shattered Visage, The Real Face of Atheism" systematically examines atheistic positions on human nature, the meaning of life, morality, the "First Cause," death, and more. With a new introduction and revisions throughout, "The Real Face of Atheism" is the perfect text for pastors, students, and thinking laypeople who want to improve their apologetic skill and reach out to non-believers.

This Little Church Had None

This Little Church Had None

by Gary E Gilley

Paul informs us in Romans 1:19-23 man's problem is that he has suppressed the truth about God that has been revealed in the creation around him. This suppression has led to darkened hearts and imaginations that are empty of spiritual reality. Man tries to fill in the blanks with whatever might be in vogue at the moment -- in biblical times it was idols and the direct conscious worship of creation. Today it might be New Age philosophy, Eastern religions, human achievement, humanistic theory, modernistic certainty, postmodern uncertainty, or any number of other theories. Bottom line: mankind has rejected God and His truth and suffers the consequences of that choice as God hands him over to enslavement by his own worldview with its resulting sins (1:24-32). It is no wonder people are disillusioned with life; sin and false beliefs ultimately have that affect. To this end this book is dedicated. We want to understand the opposition to having and living a biblical worldview, what steps we must take to implement the same in our churches, and then how to evangelize people from a biblical worldview framework.

Thousands not Billions

Thousands not Billions

by Donald B DeYoung

Destroys one of the major barriers for faith seekers: alleged long ages for the earth • Provides scientific evidences that correlate to biblical history and time-lines • Can be used as an apologetic; many shun the faith because of alleged scientific “facts” • A sensational answer to “old earth” critics • A powerful book written in plain language This long-awaited book shatters the famed dating methods employed by evolutionists to cast doubt on the veracity of the Bible and its chronology of earth history. Radiometric dating is one of the linchpins of evolutionary education today. By dating the soil in which fossils are found to very long ages, evolutionists undermine faith in Genesis as the true documentary of the history of the universe. When people are told that a dinosaur bone has been determined to be tens of millions of years old, that obviously doesn’t square with the biblical record of man being created on day 6 with the land animals. But DeYoung now demonstrates that Christians no longer have to puzzle over this glaring contradiction. A must-have for the serious Bible student, Thousands . . . not Billions will bolster the faith of many.

Who Made God?

Who Made God?

by Edgar Andrews

If you've been waiting for a really effective riposte to the "new atheism" of Richard Dawkins and others (or even if you haven't) here it is - gently humorous, highly readable, deeply serious, razor sharp, and written by an internationally respected scientist. Who made God? dismantles the arguments and pretensions of scientific atheism and presents a robust biblical theism as a positive, and altogether more convincing, alternative.

World Dominion

World Dominion

by Peter Masters

`Reconstructionism' claims that Christians have a mandate to secure dominion over the world, bringing society under the authority of the civil laws of Moses. This points out the mistakes which have carried the movement far out of line from traditional evangelicalism. Easy reading.
