Where the Word of God reigns supreme, and when you have a good theology of work, a Christian is called to be nothing less than honest, industrious, pure and prosperous.
Shaken is a much-needed biopic of a Christian man seeking to love God and love others. One of the most encouraging aspects of this book is Tebow’s steadfast faith through both trials and victories.
Dr. R.C. Sproul’s classic treatment concerning God’s Holiness is a valuable, if not required, addition to any Christian library. The Holiness of God bridges the gap between seminary training and Sunday school, just as Sproul’s Ligonier Ministries aims to do. With advanced study, but comprehensive language, this book enables the believer to better grasp the distinct “otherness” of God.
The Holy Spirit is the third member of our triune God. His membership dwells on an equal plane in terms of deity and personhood. This identity equality is noted in Jesus’ baptismal formula, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”(Matthew 28:19-20).

Her teaching is remembered. Today is a day to honor her.
Every believer is called to teach the words of God at all times. Foundational to this calling is understanding the simple truth of who God is. There is a divine tension between the reality that God is both knowable and yet incomprehensible.
This book is short in length but not lacking in wisdom regarding biblical purity for men. With much clarity and conviction, the author challenges true Christian men to pursue sexual purity through God’s eyes.
There is a calling on every believer’s life to teach the words of God at all times. All of Scripture is profitable for teaching, and the authoritative instruction concerning the truths of God are essential to matters of salvation, righteousness, and the equipping for good works.
Throughout my reading, I discovered the knowledge of the holy one exuded from Tozer’s pen with endless joy, reverence, and praise. Many of Tozer’s critiques concerning his present- day Christianity still finds much resounding truth today. In light of these difficulties, the cry of A.W.’s heart is for a personal, soul-saving relationship with God that does not end after the point of salvation.
