1 Peter - Reformed Expository Commentary

1 Peter - Reformed Expository Commentary

by Daniel M. Doriani

Many Christians around the world today face severe persecution, while others daily feel the weight of cultural pressure against them.

by John MacArthur

The apostle John is really a man for our times. He wrote his three New Testament letters in a bold, direct, even dogmatic style, more so perhaps than any other New Testament writer.

Acts - Reformed Expository Commentary

Acts - Reformed Expository Commentary

by Derek W. H. Thomas

The church in our time easily loses sight of her mission to witness to the resurrected Christ.
