Christians who are maturing will almost always be reading good books and listening to good preaching. With that in mind, I want to begin recommending a few more books and ministries to help you in this process. We will call this “Feature Friday.” Here is the format that I have in mind. 1 newly released book, 1 classic book, 1 historical book, 1 ministry and 1 photo. Each of the books are in the P2P Bookstore.
Featured New Release
The author of this book is Robert Plummer. I know Rob. We were fellow students doing doctoral work at Southern Seminary. He is currently on faculty at Southern. We have also attended church together as he is an elder at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville. Rob is an excellent scholar with a heart for people. This new book will help Bible students at any level get a better handle on interpreting your Bible.
This classic work by J.I. Packer will help you not only think about God, but get to know him better.
Featured Historical Work
This work by Roland Bainton is the definitive work on the life of the German Reformer, Martin Luther. Read how God used this man to bring about the Protestant Reformation.
I watched on-line to Francis Chan on Monday while he was speaking at the SBC Pastors Conference in Orlando. Chan passionately preached about intimately knowing Jesus. Until recently Chan was the pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California. He has resigned believing that God is opening a new chapter for him. At this point, he is not sure what that next step is, but is praying for direction.
Chan refreshing style, passion and confidence in God and the Bible make him a worthy resource for you. To get info on his books and links to his sermons, go to francischan.org.
