Preaching the Word - 1 Samuel

Preaching the Word - 1 Samuel

by John Woodhouse

What kind of leaders should we follow? What kind of leaders should we be? And what does God have to do with it?

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

by David R. Helm

Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at large-suffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers. Yet even in the face of these harsh realities, both biblical writers unswervingly declared that… Read more…

Preaching the Word - 1-2 Timothy and Titus

by R. Kent Hughes

There are substantial reasons to be energized about studying the Pastoral Letters of Paul.

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

by R. Kent Hughes

During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, bustling, important city in the Roman Empire. It was a place full of pride, individualism, wealth, and religious pluralism.

Preaching the Word - Colossians and Philemon

by R. Kent Hughes

In our day of massive religious confusion, the message of Colossians is among the most timely of all the New Testament books.

Preaching the Word - Ecclesiastes

Preaching the Word - Ecclesiastes

by Philip Graham Ryken

The book of Ecclesiastes is "about life, the way it really is," writes commentator Philip Ryken.

Preaching the Word - Isaiah

Preaching the Word - Isaiah

by Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr.

Preaching the Word - Jeremiah and Lamentations

Preaching the Word - Jeremiah and Lamentations

by Philip Graham Ryken

The “Weeping Prophet,” the rabbis said, began wailing the moment he was born. Jeremiah had reason to weep—he witnessed the devastating consequences of life without God. Sadly, the relativism Jeremiah saw in ancient Israel predominates in America today. That’s why his words are so relevant for our lives. Better than anyone else, Jeremiah exemplifie… Read more…

Preaching the Word - John

Preaching the Word - John

by R. Kent Hughes

While each of the Gospels presents Christ with a distinct emphasis, the Gospel of John focuses on His greatness. As the timeless Creator-God of the universe. As the Word made flesh.

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 1

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 1

by R. Kent Hughes

Luke's carefully researched and "orderly account" of the life of Christ is one of the finest pieces of historical writing in all of ancient literature.

Kent Hughe… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Mark Volume 1

by R. Kent Hughes

In our age of aggressive evil and apathetic faith, the Gospel of Mark resounds with the dynamic power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Preaching the Word - Proverbs

Preaching the Word - Proverbs

by Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr.

Preaching the Word - Revelation

by James M. Hamilton, Jr.

We need to see how God will pulverize wickedness, answer those wh… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Romans

Preaching the Word - Romans

by R. Kent Hughes

Few Christians would dispute that the book of Romans is one of the most powerful and influential books ever written.
