Free eBook: Be Reverent

BLOG Be Reverent

Be Reverent is a commentary on the book of Ezekiel and is available for free download here.

“The modern church has become a comfortable place, as congregations focus on creating warm and welcoming environments. But have casual attitudes replaced reverence for the Lord? The prophet Ezekiel was called to remind God’s people about His holy and glorious nature, and that message remains as relevant today as when it was first delivered. This study examines Ezekiel’s mission to describe the indescribable, a God beyond imagining, a King worthy of our reverence.

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, BE Reverent has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe calls us to rediscover the awesomeness of the Lord. Filled with inspiring words and images, Ezekiel’s timeless message will draw you into a deeper level of holy reverence for our God.”

Free eBook: Billy Graham

BLOG Billy Graham

For those who want to know more about Billy Graham, Billy Graham: Candid Conversations with a Public Man is available for free download here.

Most people know Billy Graham the preacher. Many know Billy Graham the author. In this remarkable book, Graham reveals a personal side that few have seen before.

For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Graham’s decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace. Along the way, Graham provided insight into life as an evangelist, a Christian father and grandfather, and a public figure in a changing culture. Most of all, Graham’s words show what it means to live out your beliefs—whether you speak to millions of people around the world or simply want to live faithfully at home and work. With a chronology of Graham’s life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from his grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you to respond to God’s call with no reserve.”

新書介紹: 明道研經叢書 – 啟示錄

12 Revelation4.ai

“啟示錄的語言具有生發創造和建立的能力,不是客觀、抽象、疏離、冷漠、概念式的約化言說。想像式語言藉著視覺語言的表述,使讀者從日常生活裡驚覺那理所當然的權勢,其實並沒有終極的能力。想像式語言為讀者揭示那久為忽略的啟迪和意義,它解除讀者先入為主的思念。只是對這種語言的特色和限制不知就裡者,不是曲解誤會(如以啟示錄為驚世預言),就是貶抑否定(十九世紀的解經者不少都認為啟示錄作者的寫作水平不高)。另一方面,讀者可以從固有的事物裡瞥見亮光,更清楚地認識世界的本相,甚至因為洞見而活出生命:聽見又遵守其中所記載的,都是有福的(—3,二十二7、9)。如此,啟示錄的文字特色就不是難以解釋的謎團,亦非難以洞悉的密碼了。”

Free Audiobook: Taking God at His Word

BLOG Taking God at His Word

For the month of April, Christian Audio is offering Kevin DeYoung’s Taking God at His Word for free; you can download it here.

“There isn’t really a ‘go to’ book on Scripture. Sure, there are plenty of theological books on Scripture, and lots of popular-level works on how to read Scripture, and more and more books on the whole story line of Scripture. But there is not one book that people turn to for the basics on the Bible. We need a book that college freshmen will read when they have questions, a book that mentors can use and small groups will employ, a book that a Bible class in high school or college might assign. We need a book on the Good Book that is relevant enough to get a hearing, but timeless enough to be read with profit twenty years from now.

That’s the sort of book popular author, pastor, and blogger Kevin DeYoung has aimed to write. Addressing the issues of our day—questions related to the reliability, authority, and readability of the Bible—DeYoung tackles these head on, but without complex terminology or a long list of footnotes. Taking God at His Word serves as a comprehensive and comprehensible introduction to a classic, orthodox doctrine of Scripture for the average man or woman in the pew, helping Christians across the globe gain confidence that the Bible really is knowable, necessary, and enough.”

新书介绍: 以基督为中心的敬拜

BLOG 以基督为中心的敬拜

“自宗教改革运动以来,基督教会的敬拜仪式有了许多改变,近年来敬拜赞美之风盛行,教会有更大的空间来发挥设计敬拜程序的自由,但在享受这种自由之余,我们对何谓合神心意的敬拜是否有进一步的了解?我们所设计的敬拜仪式,想要诉说什么故事呢?面对后现代文化的多变潮流,本书作者在谨慎研考历代教会敬拜传统之同时,提出结论──福音乃是衡量所有敬拜的准绳,并据此对教会敬拜仪式提出许多具体而实用的建言与范例.”
