Recapturing the Wonder: Transcendent Faith in a Disenchanted World (Downers Grove, IL: IVP Books, 2017)

Recapturing the Wonder: Transcendent Faith in a Disenchanted World is Mike Cosper’s latest book contribution. He is the founder of Harbor Media, which targets Christians living in a Post-Christian world. Prior to that he spent nearly two decades as a pastor with a keen focus on music and the arts. He is also a friend as a sat under his leadership while living in Louisville, KY. He possesses the combination of being a solid theologian inside an artist’s body. For that reason he is uniquely qualified to write this book.

The very idea of living for the glory of God appears to be many people’s idea of hell.

Sinclair Ferguson
By Grace Alone (Reformation Trust Publishing, 2010)

The most damnable and pernicious heresy that has ever plagued the mind of man was the idea that somehow he could make himself good enough to deserve to live with an all-holy God.

Martin Luther

The 5 Solas: Sola Scriptura

During the five Lord’s Days of October 2017, sermons during the worship service of First Baptist Boynton Beach will focus on the five theological truths that highlighted the Protestant Reformation. Each truth includes the Latin word sola which means alone.

This is the 500th Anniversary of the date (October 31, 1517) on which the beginning of the Reformation is traditionally dated.

I am excited to preach the first of these sermons on the topic of Sola Scriptura which means Scripture Alone.

Devoted to God: Blueprints for Sanctification (The Banner of Truth Trust, 2016)

Devoted to God is Sinclair Ferguson‘s contribution on the subject of the believer’s sanctification. Ferguson is a pastor-theologian. He has ability to both grasp biblical truth and to communicate that truth to the Christian community.

The author intends to provide a manual of biblical teaching on holiness. The reader is intended to learn how to glorify and enjoy God by growing in holiness. Since the Lord is holy, we are to be holy.

God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are often too full to receive them.


Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.

Martin Luther

Mark 1:12-13

The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.
