In this magisterial and best-selling book, John Stott explains the significance of Christ's cross and answers the objections commonly brought against biblical teaching on the atonement.

The author describes the countless ways in which the Japanese met the challenge of "starting over", from top-level manipulations concerning the fate of Emperor Hirohito to the hopes, fears, and activities of ordinary men and women in every walk of life.

    How can revival impact your everyday life? Maybe you've thought revival is for "super-charged" Christians - not for everyday people going through everyday life. Wrong. God wants your everyday to be overflowing with Holy Spirit power. Do you feel like there is more to being a Christ-follower than rhetoric, rules, and regulations? The truth is, you were created for a dynamic relationship with the living God. Don't settle for scattered showers when there is a great outpouring available.

    This book answers foundational questions: Who wrote the Bible? What is its message? Why is it thought to be a 'holy' book? How does one read and interpret it? Best of all, though, you'll broaden your vision of Jesus Christ, the focal point of Scripture. How? By better understanding the geographical, religious, and historical concerns that shaped the world in which he lived.

    Blind Ambition is an autobiographical account of a young lawyer who accelerated to the top of the Federal power structure to become Counsel to the President at 30 years of age, only to discover that when reaching the top, he had touched the bottom. Most striking in this chronicle is its honesty. Dean spares no one, including himself. But, as Time noted, Dean survived, despite the opposition of powerful foe, because he had no false story to protect and he had an amazing ability to recall the truth.

Most Christians are familiar with the most recent council, Vatican II, but only in name. Now you can go far beyond what you know about councils by experiencing the full story.

In this revised and expanded edition, the author addresses criticisms of the original, adds new argumentation and references, and refines his presentation.
