Thomas Schreiner, a respected scholar and a trusted voice for many students and pastors, offers a substantial and accessibly written overview of the whole Bible. He traces the storyline of the scriptures from the standpoint of biblical theology, examining the overarching message that is conveyed throughout. Schreiner emphasizes three interrelated and unified themes that stand out in the biblical narrative: God as Lord, human beings as those who are made in God's image, and the land or place in which God's rule is exercised. The goal of God's kingdom is to see the king in his beauty and to be enraptured in his glory.

The parents of this child are named Sutherland. They live in Platteville, Colorada. The story about this child was published in the Denver News of November 29th, 1875. This little girl Avent with her father one cold afternoon to the woods to find the cattle and bring them home. They had not gone very far when they found the calves; but the cows were not with them. They had wandered further away. So her father told the little girl to follow the calves home, while he went on to hunt up the cows. She did so, but the calves misled her, going off in a different direction; and before long the child found that she had missed her way and was lost in the forest. Soon night came on, a cold November night, and the hungry wolves were heard growling savagely around. With strange calmness the poor child kept walking slowly on and on all through the night, not knowing where she was going. The next day, which was Sunday, about ten o'clock in the morning, she reached in her wanderings the house of John Beebe, near a place called Evans, having traveled on for eighteen hours, and a distance of not less than twenty-five miles. When she was missed at home all the neighbors turned out to hunt for her, but in vain. There was great rejoicing in that neighborhood, when she was brought safely back. Many questions were asked her about how she got through the night. In answer to these "she said that the wolves kept close to her heels, and snapped at her feet; but her mother had told her that if she prayed to God and trusted in him, he would always take care of her, and so she knew the wolves wouldn't hurt her, because God wovldnt let them." God wouldn't...
A new collection of sermons preached by the nineteenth century's most beloved preachers Charles H. Spurgeon. "Sermons on the Last Days" features his sermons on the final judgment and Christ's return, covering everything from heaven and hell, reward and punishment, readiness, steadfastness, and watchfulness. Gently updated for the modern reader, Spurgeon's words are as rich and nourishing as they were more than a century ago.
This volume contains not one year, but two years of morning and evening devotions. For 366 additional pages of devotions have been selected from Spurgeon's writings, most of them from his Treasury of David. We have entitled this extra year of devotions, Morning and Evening II. Also the devotions of many other noted authors appear. In Spurgeon's preface to Treasury of David we find the following: ''The delightful study of the Psalms has yielded me boundless profit and ever-growing pleasure. Common gratitude constrains me to communicate to others a portion of the benefit, with the prayer that it may induce them to search further for themselves.'' These comments bare the heart of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a preacher of righteousness, and a man after God's own heart. Anyone with only a brief acquaintance with the fruits of his pen must see that this famed but humble soul lived and breathed the Word of God. The reader of these daily devotions will quickly discover that Mr. Spurgeon did not ''keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God'' (Acts. 20:27). In his heart he magnified the Lord; his heart panted after Him ''as the heart pants after the waterbrooks.'' Therefore, in his devotions he did not forget the teachings of Holy Scripture. These devotions which he has written for the saints of God reflect his own personal devotions. Any sincere lover of God and of His Word should cherish the many gleams of heavenly light which leap from every page of this volume. And if he biblically bears down on the doctrines of grace which have been hidden from view in this ungodly age, it will soon prove to be a blessing of the highest degree to those who ''seek to know the Lord, '' an to ''grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ'' (2 Peter 3:18) As you read these devotions day by day, may you find yourselves fervently saying, ''To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity'' (2 Peter 3:18).

Winner of the 2013 Christianity Today Book Award for Theology/Ethics Scholars and laypersons alike regard Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) as North America's greatest theologian. The Theology of Jonathan Edwards is the most comprehensive survey of his theology yet produced and the first study to make full use of the recently-completed seventy-three-volume online edition of the Works of Jonathan Edwards. The book's forty-five chapters examine all major aspects of Edwards's thought and include in-depth discussions of the extensive secondary literature on Edwards as well as Edwards's own writings. Its opening chapters set out Edwards's historical and personal theological contexts. The next thirty chapters connect Edwards's theological loci in the temporally-ordered way in which he conceptualized the theological enterprise-beginning with the triune God in eternity with his angels to the history of redemption as an expression of God's inner reality ad extra, and then back to God in eschatological glory. The authors analyze such themes as aesthetics, metaphysics, typology, history of redemption, revival, and true virtue. They also take up such rarely-explored topics as Edwards's missiology, treatment of heaven and angels, sacramental thought, public theology, and views of non-Christian religions. Running throughout the volume are what the authors identify as five basic theological constituents: trinitarian communication, creaturely participation, necessitarian dispositionalism, divine priority, and harmonious constitutionalism. Later chapters trace his influence on and connections with later theologies and philosophies in America and Europe. The result is a multi-layered analysis that treats Edwards as a theologian for the twenty-first-century global Christian community, and a bridge between the Christian West and East, Protestantism and Catholicism, conservatism and liberalism, and charismatic and non-charismatic churches.
