Be Still My Soul


Be Still My Soul: Embracing God's Purpose & Provision In Suffering
Edited by Nancy Guthrie

We have just received this interesting new book exploring the issue of suffering as a Christian from a respected author.

From the back cover:

"When life becomes difficult- when we face deep disappointment, agonizing loss or ongoing pain - we set out on a search to find answers to significant questions: Why would God allow this to happen? What good could come out of this? What will it look like to trust God?

In this collection of insightful essays and excerpts, classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers – ranging from John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon and Dietrich Bonhoeffer to Tim Keller, Joni Eareckson Tada and John Piper – explore Scripture in regard to the causes and purposes of suffering, as well as what it means to trust God in the midst of hardship and pain."

Nancy Guthrie explores the issue of suffering as one who has suffered the loss of two of her children. She has authored six books, including Holding on to Hope and Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow.

Book of the Week: The Hidden Flame


The Hidden Flame
by Davis Bunn & Janette Oke

Inspiring historical fiction.

In first-century Judea, the followers of the Way have burgeoned into a vibrant, growing community that cannot be ignored. Jerusalem is in turmoil as its religious leaders on one side, and their Roman rulers on the other, conspire to stamp out the fledgling Church. And Abigail, who thought she had finally found home and safety, is caught between the opposing forces.

Two suitors desire the lovely Abigail's hand in marriage. Ezra, a successful Hebrew merchant and widower with important connections among the Sanhedrin, is looking for a mother for his children. The Roman soldier Linux is fascinated by her winsome charm and possibly could offer the sanctuary--maybe even the love--for which she yearns. But her heart has been captured by neither of these. Will her faith and courage survive a heartbreak beyond comprehension as the followers face a gathering storm of persecution they never could have foreseen?

A glimmer of hope beckons Abigail forward.

Book of the Week: Proverbs: A devotional Commentary



Book of the Week:



This latest book by William MacDonald is his last known manuscript, finished shortly prior to his home call on December 25, 2007. Those who knew Mr. MacDonald know that he lived a life that adhered to the wisdom offered in the Proverbs, with many years of experience, and thus a worthy author of a devotional commentary on the lofty subject. This book, a verse by verse commentary, is an excellent title for daily reflection. Each of the 31 chapters has the Biblical text followed by the commentary of William MacDonald, his practical reflection with instruction and guidance. The reader will profit in daily Christian living if the instructions and warnings of Proverbs are heeded. The central verse is Chapter 3 verse 5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths." Read the book of Proverbs for instruction, guidance and understanding. The reader will profit in daily living if the instructions and warnings are heeded. This book is excellent for your personal study, or could be used as a guide for a group Bible study on each verse. This book is not a “re-hashing” of old writings, rather a completely new manuscript, and the last book in William MacDonald’s legacy of 84 titles.

Book of the Week - The Scofield Bible

Book of the Week:
The Scofield Bible: Its history and impact on the Evangelical Church
by R. Todd Mangum & Mark S. Sweetnam

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible (1909). It is hard to believe in our era of study Bibles for most every demographic group that the Scofield Bible was the first of its kind.

The Scofield Reference Bible was uniquely responsible for popularizing dispensational theology, eventually making dispensationalism the theology assumed by everyday English-speaking Christians for much of the 20th century.

This book, written by American Todd Magnum (author of The Dispensational-Covenantal Rift) and Irish scholar Mark Sweetnam, explores the origins and impact of the Scofield Reference Bible on both sides of the Atlantic. Readable and fair, it provides insight into the approach, intentions, and theology of the Scofield Bible, valuable to both fans and critics of the Scofield Bible. It also provides rare insight into the life story of C. I. Scofield himself, which has become a subject of interest and controversy in recent years.
