What does Jesus mean when he says, "Follow me"? Twenty years ago, pastor-teacher and best-selling author John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question and wrote a book that has since taken its place among Christianity's classics. This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthurs provocative book has been revised and contains one new chapter.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It will challenge your conventional views of you and reveal by "peeling the onion" the deep-rooted issues that make up the reasons you behave and think a certain way. A must read for anyone interested in self-improvement.

The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured by many. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different than us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible.

It has been said that this work by Henry Scougal was "almost universally praised by the leaders of the Great Awakening". It is a piece of literature that has been used by God to influence the souls of men for the glory of Christ. Regardless of the times we live in, the great works of the men of God of old are still applicable today. In an age of lukewarm believers, we need the fire of God to burn us afresh and give us a clear vision of his holy will.

This was an insightful book in helping both the new and the seasoned minister focus on the construction process of an expository sermon. It's concise presentation and scriptural examples on the various methods described were beyond helpful. It may require a double or triple listen in order to absorb all of the nuggets of wise counsel presented but well worth the investment. This is a ministerial must for insertion into your personal library.

In the Old Testament, God decried the fact that his people were perishing for lack of knowledge about him. The same seems to be occurring today. There is sharing, suggesting, plenty of storytelling, and lots of preaching to felt needs in modern pulpits. But the authoritative, expositional opening of the word of God is becoming scarcer all the time. Jesus told Peter, "Feed my sheep" (John 21:17).

Preach and Deliver is a practical guide that will teach you the best practices for body language, eye contact, pauses, humor, illustrations, notes, and much more. This book will change the way you deliver a sermon so that you can preach in a powerful way that grips the hearts and minds of your audience. But passive listening alone will not make you a better preacher. That's why at the end of every chapter, I have included an action step to apply what you learned.

The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology - that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: a strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching; clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum; and a contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today.

For the new Christian this would be very insightful. If however, the listener has any theological experience, the beginning may be a bit challenging in its topical presentation. But after the first few chapters, it begins to pick up steam and flow. The presentation is lecture-style and can be dry in parts. But overall, the knowledge imparted is not going to be gleaned in one listening...but believe me, the subsequent readings will unify the overall mission of the author.
