Paul’s letter to the Romans is arguably the greatest ever written. With these 225 messages, Piper preaches through the book - verse by verse, phrase by phrase - faithfully pointing listeners to Christ and the gospel. “The glory of Christ seems more glorious to me now than it ever has. And there is no greater exposition of the Gospel of God than the book of Romans.” (John Piper)
"Well Worth a Month's Credit"
Selected from sermons delivered by C. S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. "The Weight of Glory", considered by many to be Lewis’s finest sermon of all, is an incomparable explication of virtue, goodness, desire, and glory.
In Foundations: An Overview of Systematic Theology, R.C. Sproul shows that the truths of Scripture relate to each other in perfect harmony. This eye-opening series addresses a myriad of questions about the origin and authority of the Bible, God, the Trinity, man, sin, salvation, revelation, miracles, the church, the end times, and more.

"clearity of vision"
Here is the best of the audio from the famous Catholic television program, "Life is Worth Living!" For more than 30 years, Archbishop Fulton Sheen was the voice of the Catholic Church, with his radio and television ministries that touched hearts all over the world. His wisdom and gentle insight are once again available in digitally remastered audio recorded from his live programs.
Written considerably later that the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), John takes a very different approach to the Gospel story. Traditionally attributed to the "Beloved Apostle" John, this Gospel doesn’t give us yet another version of the events in Jesus’ public ministry; John illustrates what those events mean in light of 60 years of reflection upon them. The Gospel according to John is a brilliant book, and it offers us a profoundly intimate glimpse into the person and work of Jesus Christ.
"makes you feel as if you're there"
Written during a period of intense persecution under the Roman emperor Nero in 64-68 B.C., Mark offers an urgent message for a community in crisis. With its fast start (“Beginning the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God... as it is written in Isaiah the prophet”), Mark hits the ground running, and he doesn’t slow down until the final episode at the end, in which the women who see Jesus’ empty tomb say nothing, for they were terrified." Mark’s Gospel is a clarion call to action. Master story teller, Dr. Bill Creasy, sounds the trumpet!
"Excellent Bible Study"
Many pastors struggle to translate their theological beliefs into fruitful ministry in the places they are called to reach. It’s not enough to simply know what to believe (theology), or on the other hand, how to do ministry (methodology) - they need something in between. They need help thinking about ministry in a culture that no longer believes Christianity is a force for good, let alone the source of ultimate revealed truth in the person of Christ.
"Wisdom for Urban Churches - Deep, Wide & Practical"
This special audiobook edition of the Lectures on Faith from Zion's Camp Books has been prepared especially with you in mind. It is narrated as a book, rather than with chapter and verse numbers as in the print edition. This will give you the greatest enjoyment as you listen to the words of the prophets and learn about faith.
"Dry reader – powerful writing!"
How can you effectively study the Bible? This is a great series for anyone wishing to gain more insight into personal Bible study.
Although Matthew may not be the first written Gospel, like Isaiah it is positioned first in its sequence of four Gospels. Opening with a 42-generation genealogy, Matthew reminds us of the linear nature of God’s plan, and Matthew forms a link—a swinging door—between the Old and New Testaments. Matthew is a Jew writing for a Jewish audience, and his Gospel provides our first perspective on the birth and public ministry of Jesus Christ. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he leads us through this dazzling work.
"Best Bible study ever"
The Psalms have been the prayer book of Israel for the past 3,000 years and the prayer book of the church for the past 2,000 years. The Psalms explore every possible response we can have to God, from the highest awe to the deepest love, from the darkest despair to icy anger. In the Psalms, we join David as we plumb the very depths of our hearts in our relationship with God. Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy explores the Psalms, a journey through the poetry of experience.
"The stories behind the songs"
The Hebrew Scriptures contain three major figures: the priest, the prophet, and the king. The priest stands between the people and God, and he speaks to God on behalf of the people; the prophet stands between God and the people, and he speaks to the people on behalf of God; and the king represents God in the affairs of the nation.
Acts follows the Church from its birth in Jerusalem through its exponential growth and inevitable persecution, led by Saul of Tarsus. Incredibly, Saul later confronts the risen and glorified Christ on the road to Damascus, where he becomes a believer. And not just any old believer! Saul becomes Paul, the great Apostle to the Gentiles. From Chapter 9 onward, Acts follows Paul on his three missionary journeys as he takes the Gospel into Asia Minor and Europe.
"Stellar presentation of an important book"
Dr. Sproul surveys the history of apologetics and demonstrates that reason and science are your allies in defending the existence of God and the historical truth claims of Jesus Christ.
"Good, but a bit too theoretical than practical."
"I love Fulton Sheen"
To live in God's favor is to live a life filled with hope, abundance, and joy. God has a new beginning in store for you! Whatever difficulties you've faced, God uses your challenges to stretch you and enlarge your vision to move beyond disappointments and experience his blessings. In this audio series, Joel Osteen shares valuable keys that will help you live in faith, stand strong, and overcome anything that comes against you.
The story of Job is set during the time of Abraham—the beginning of our story. Here we read that Job “was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil…. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East” (Job 1: 1; 3). Job has done everything God asks; yet his life is a disaster! Placed after Esther, Job calls into question everything we have learned about God in the previous books.
What happens next is a delicious reversal! In the end the Jews not only survive, but they kill and plunder the Persians who attempt the holocaust; Haman is impaled naked on a pointy-pole; Esther becomes the heroine of her people; and Mordecai replaces Haman as Xerxes’ number-two man!
When Good Fathers Die, it's Always Too Early is a masterful four-part series of lectures by Dr. Rod Rosenbladt that serves as an indispensable guide for those who wish to see the ethos of Lutheran Christianity at its best. This brilliant exposition of the central tenets of scripture and the Reformation will have you walking in deeper appreciation of your father in heaven.
When Cyrus the Great king of Persia allows the Jews to return home and rebuild Jerusalem, only 42,360 do (Ezra 2: 64), about 10% of the population. The rest stay behind in Assyria, Babylon and Persia. After all, it had been nearly 200 years since the Northern kingdom had been taken captive into Assyria and almost 70 years since the Southern kingdom had been taken captive to Babylon. The Jews had built homes, started businesses and settled into their new lives.
In Ezra 7, we jump ahead to Ezra’s arrival in Jerusalem, August 4, 458 B.C. Meanwhile, Nehemiah, an official in the court of the Persian king, Artaxerxes (465-424 B.C.), returns to Jerusalem shortly after Passover 445 B.C. Working together, Ezra the priest and Nehemiah the layman rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and much of the city itself.
The Babylonian Captivity is catastrophic for the Jews. In Psalm 137 we read: “By the waters of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion” (Psalm 137: 1). And 1 Chronicles 9: 1 tells us: “The people of Judah were taken captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness.” Cyrus the Great king of Persia (559-530 B.C.—modern-day Iran) conquers Babylon by 540 B.C., and following his enlightened policies allows the people conquered by Assyria and Babylon to return to their homes and rebuild.
With the book of Esther, we end the linear narrative of the Hebrew Scriptures. And if we can draw one lesson from Genesis through Esther, it is this: "If we do what God says, all will go well; if we don't, it won't." And then we turn the page to Job. Job does everything God wants, and his life is a disaster! As we know from our own experience: bad things often happen to good people, even when they are fully aligned with God. So what gives? Job explores this paradox, calling into question the fundamental lessons we learn in the first 700 pages of Scripture.
St. Paul is to the New Testament what Moses is to the Old Testament: as God gave the message of the Law through Moses, so he gave the message of Grace through Paul. In Acts 9: 15 Jesus said that St. Paul is "my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and to their kings and to the people of Israel." And that is precisely what Paul did. On three missionary journeys - in AD 46-48, 50-52, and 54-57 - Paul worked tirelessly to spread the gospel message throughout Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey), Macedonia and Greece, and to Rome itself.
At the heart of the Book of Samuel, where the story of David is first told, we find a work of genius that anticipates the romantic lyricism and tragic grandeur of Shakespeare, the political wile of Machiavelli, and the modern psychological insight of Freud. And, just as much as Shakespeare or Machiavelli or Freud, the frank depiction of David in the pages of the Bible has defined what it means to be a human being.
The Minor Prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures are not "minor" because they are less important than the "major" prophets, but because they are shorter in length: Isaiah is 66 chapters; Obadiah is one. Nevertheless, the Minor Prophets are dazzling works that penetrate deeply into Israel's relationship with God, and by inference into our own relationship with God.
Logos Bible Study presents another masterful presentation by Dr. Bill Creasy of how a divided kingdom will surely fall. From Solomon's reign to the prophetic call of Elijah, 1 Kings tells the story of the collapse of David's united monarchy into a nearly 100-year civil war and the fracture of a nation into two kingdoms: Israel and Judah. 2 Kings continues the story, chronicling Assyria's conquest of Israel in 721 BC and Babylon's conquest of Judah in 586 BC, ending with all Israel taken captive to Babylon.
After 40 years in the wilderness the Israelites begin their conquest of Canaan, the land God promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In the book of Joshua, the Israelites cross the Jordan River, attacking Jericho - and we watch the walls come tumblin' down! By the end of Joshua, the Israelites have subdued most of the "Promised Land" and it is allocated to the 12 tribes - yet, there are still significant pockets of resistance, especially among the Philistines on the coastal plain.
Jeremiah prophesized that the Babylonian captivity would last 70 years, and indeed it does: from the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Solomon's temple in 586 BC to the rebuilding and dedication of the second temple in 516 BC. When Cyrus the Great, King of Persia, conquers Babylon, he allows not only the Jews, but all the people taken captive by Assyria and Babylon, to return home in 539 BC and rebuild their cities, temples, and infrastructures.
The "general epistles" include those New Testament canonical epistles and letters not attributed to St. Paul, but all written during the 1st generation of the Church by those closely associated with Jesus. They include Hebrews; James; 1 & 2 Peter; 1, 2 & 3 John and Jude.
Sennarcherib, king of Assyria (705-681 B.C.), attacks Jerusalem in 701 B.C., while Hezekiah is king (715-686 B.C.) and Isaiah is prophet (740-686 B.C.). Working together, Hezekiah and Isaiah implore the Lord to save Jerusalem and Judah. And he does. God vows that “[Sennarcherib] will not enter this city or shoot an arrow here” (2 Kings 19: 32). “That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp."
With the death of Ahab and Jezebel, Jehu (841-814 B.C.) murders all of Ahab’s family, consolidating power in the north. Meanwhile in the south, Athaliah (the only female king) murders her grandchildren and crawls over their butchered bodies to seize the throne, initiating a 7-year reign of terror. With the ensuing chaos, both kingdoms weaken and begin to crumble. Black storm clouds gather in the north as Assyria (Northern Iraq of today) emerges on the stage as a world power.
