新書介紹: 作祂的僕人

BLOG 作祂的僕人

“保羅對哥林多教會的愛,對真理的執著,對自己近乎無盡的嚴求,於各樣的事上,都表明自己是神的僕人,在在令我們驚奇憧憬,而且不禁自問:若主今晚要接我們回天家,我們是否也能像保羅一樣坦然。

在本書中,楊牧谷牧師以其細膩的筆觸,透過哥林多後書的詮釋,引導我們進入保羅的內心,來看他的信仰脈絡,也讓今天任何一個要「作祂的僕人」的我們,得以學效。

本書的導言介紹哥林多後書的背景和詮釋問題,每一章先點明經文的背景及撮要,然後是經文的逐節分析和解釋,最後是現代意義,把聖經的信息落實在當今的世代中,讓我們思想應把持甚麼態度,才能作合神心意的僕人。”

New Book: A Woman’s Wisdom

BLOG A Woman's Wisdom

“Advice books are no short-lived trend, even though much of the advice parading as ‘wisdom’ proves shallow in the long run. What we need is biblical wisdom, and even more than that we need hearts set on the One who governs all our practicalities. The book of Proverbs unlocks the key to both, helping us to face very real challenges such as:

  • handling our freedom, independence, and material resources wisely
  • keeping ourselves sexually pure
  • practicing biblical femininity in a world that scorns us for it
  • sustaining God-glorifying marriages
  • elevating biblical priorities ahead of day-to-day pressures

Exploring the timeless counsel in the book of Proverbs, A Woman’s Wisdom teaches us to know the very Author of wisdom and to apply his relevant, how-to riches.”

新書介紹: 歐洲師母唔易做

BLOG 歐洲師母唔易做

“作者與丈夫在中年毅然放下事業和穩定的生活,為主前往宣教前哨,在歐洲服事華人,親身體會他們的困苦流離,見證福音的大能。這本見證集有歡笑,也有眼淚。在苦與樂的描述中,作者帶出的,是一個馬其頓呼聲。誠如作者與丈夫所說的:「儘管有一千個合理的理由可以跑回香港去,但每次聖靈給我們的提醒:『你愛我比這些更深麼!』……單單為了『主的愛』,我倆都願留下來繼續事奉。」”

Free eBook: Why the Reformation Still Matters

BLOG Why The Reformation

Crossway is offering a free eBook download of Why the Reformation Still Matters in exchange for a survey; you can access it here.

Does the Reformation Still Matter?

In 1517, a German monk nailed a poster to the door of a church, disputing key doctrines taught by the Roman Catholic Church in that day. This moment set in motion a movement that changed the entire trajectory of church history. But do the Reformers still have something to teach us?

In this accessible primer, Michael Reeves and Tim Chester answer eleven key questions raised by the Reformers—questions that remain critically important for the church today.”

Free eBook: Purity is Possible

BLOG Purity is Possible

The Good Book Company is offering Helen Thorne’s Purity is Possible for free this month; you can check it out here.

“One in five Christian women use pornography. One in three visitors to a porn site is a woman. Many, many more women read explicit books like Fifty Shades of Gray. Even more than that write their own pornography—not on paper for publication, but in their heads for their own use.

Helen Thorne knows all this because she’s done it.

But no one talks about it. Our churches are silent on it. There are very few books about it. It is the unspoken struggle of thousands of Christian women—perhaps you, and probably someone you know.”

New Book: Counsel from the Cross

 

BLOG Counsel from the Cross“Given the evermore apparent failure of modern psychotherapies and a growing discomfort with pharmacological strategies, many churches are reaffirming the sufficiency and power of the Scriptures to change lives.

To aid churches in ministering to broken and hurting people, the authors of Counsel from the Cross present a counseling model based on Scripture and powered by the work of the wonderful counselor, Jesus Christ. Through careful exegesis and helpful case studies, they demonstrate how to provide consistently biblical, gospel-centered counseling and explain why it is important to do so.

The authors’ combined backgrounds—one, a woman trained in biblical counseling and the other, a male professor of practical theology—bring balance to this work, making it relevant for those who counsel as part of pastoral ministry and for all involved in mentoring or discipleship.”
