'Useful men are some of the greatest blessings of a people. To have many such is more for a people's happiness than almost anything, unless it be God's own gracious, spiritual presence amongst them; they are precious gifts of heaven.' Certainly one of the most useful men in evangelical history was the man who preached those words, pastor and theologian Jonat… Read more…

Some of the leading voices in evangelical Christianity reaffirm the importance of preaching biblical theology for the health of our churches. Loving, teaching, and rightly dividing the Word of God is every pastor's privilege and responsibility. If a pastor understands what the Word says about God, man, and the curse, about Christ and his substitutionary aton… Read more…

Church and the Surprising Offense of God

Church and the Surprising Offense of God's Love (Foreword by Mark Dever)

by Mark Dever, Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman

When the world speaks of 'love,' it often means unconditional acceptance. Many churches have adopted this mind-set in their practice of membership and discipline-if they have not done away with such structures entirely. 'Yet God's love and God's gospel are different than what the world expects,' writes Jonathan Leeman. They're centered in his character, whic… Read more…

In this introduction to the basics of discipling, veteran pastor and author Mark Dever uses biblical defin… Read more…

Gospel and Personal Evangelism (Foreword by C. J. Mahaney)

by Mark Dever, C. J. Mahaney, Mark Dever and C. J. Mahaney

Evangelism is not only misunderstood, it is often unpracticed. Many Christians want to share the gospel with others, but because those Christians don't grasp the fundamentals of witnessing, they feel intimidated and incapable of sharing the truth of the gospel. Yet those believers fail to recognize that God has already established who and how we are to evang… Read more…
