Justification by Faith by John Calvin (Giveaway)

Image
Dustin Benge is giving away Justification By Faith by John Calvin in honor of Reformation Day.

From Amazon,

"The battle of the Protestant Reformation was waged over this primary question: How does a sinful person get right with a just God? At the heart of it, the Reformers contended that sinners are justified (declared righteous) by God through faith alone in Jesus Christ. While Martin Luther is often credited with re-discovering the doctrine of justification, it was Calvin who more fully explored the depths of this doctrine, giving it a thorough treatment in his magisterial work, Institutes of the Christian Religion. In this volume, Nate Pickowicz has selected out and edited Calvin’s treatment on justification—the marrow of Reformation doctrine."
I'm giving away a few books today to celebrate Reformation Day. The first book is by my good friend, @NatePickowicz, who has selected and edited John Calvin’s treatment on justification by faith. Like or retweet this post to be…

Prayer that Turns the World Upside Down by Al Mohler (Giveaway)

Image
SBTS is giving away 95 copies of Al Mohler's book The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down: The Lord's Prayer as a Manifesto for Revolution.

From Amazon"The opening words of the Lord’s Prayer have become so familiar that we often speak them without a thought, sometimes without any awareness that we are speaking at all. But to the disciples who first heard these words from Jesus, the prayer was a thunderbolt, a radical new way to pray that changed them and the course of history.
Far from a safe series of comforting words, the Lord’s Prayer makes extraordinary claims, topples every earthly power, and announces God’s reign over all things in heaven and on earth. In this groundbreaking new book, R. Albert Mohler Jr. recaptures the urgency and transformational nature of the prayer, revealing once again its remarkable, world-upending power. Step by step, phrase by phrase, The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down explains what these words mean and how we are to pray them.

The Gospel According to Satan: Eight Lies About God That Sound Like Truth by Jared Wilson (Giveaway)

Image
Win 1 of 10 advanced copies of The Gospel According to Satan: Eight Lies about God that Sound Like the Truth by Jared Wilson.

From Amazon, "Not every lie sounds untrue. Some just sound right. And some are repeated so often that they virtually become "common knowledge." This is what makes lies about God so dangerous. So we have to ask, what might God's enemy want us to believe to lead us astray? And would we even see it happening?

Award-winning writer and pastor Jared C. Wilson brings us this compelling and enlightening exploration of the popular and oftentimes pleasing ways spiritual darkness masquerades as light. With sharp insight, warm humor, and a shepherd's heart, Jared Wilson examines eight lines popular with too many Christians--eight lies the enemy wants us to believe--and provides eight lines of counterattack to help us regain our footing. Wilson names the lies-- including "God Just Wants You to Be Happy," "You Only Live Once," and &…

Moving Forward by Faith Acts 20 (Sermon)

Moving Forward by Faith October 27
WELCOME Hi, I am pastor Rob, and it is great to worship with you.
CROSS COUNTRY In High School, I was an evangelist. I shared two things I loved to different degrees: my faith, and my love for cross country running. I was not as successful at bringing people to the Lord as I was to practice. I got almost everyone to sign up for cross-country. All my friends ran. It was so fun. Most of us weren’t fast. Some people are not made to run. One of my friends, I will call him Bob, was one of those. He was smart and still is one of the most intelligent people I know. One race, he was in the back. He was working so hard. If I remember correctly, everyone was cutting a portion of the route out. They were missing the course. I had my map in hand and was cheering him on and getting more and more excited as he ran. He had studied the map before the race. He knew his way, and as slow as he was, he was the only one to follow the course correctly. It was the litera…

Amazon describes the book this way, "Charles Moore's masterful and definitive biography of Britain's first female prime minister reaches its climax with the story of her zenith and her fall.

Hail, Happy Saint a Poem by Philis Wheatly Concerning the Death of George Whitefield

Image
On September 30th, 1770, six years before the authors of the Declaration of Independence would proclaim the liberty to all people the freedom to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness George Whitefield died. This 17-year-old slave girl penned the most extraordinary eulogy to the luminaire and reknown evangelist of the First Great Awakening, George Whitefield. Philis would be one of the first women to publish in America and the first African American woman.

I love the lines, 
He charg'd its youth to let the grace divine Arise, and in their future actions shine; He offer'd THAT he did himself receive, A greater gift not GOD himself can give: He urg'd the need of HIM to every one; It was no less than GOD's co-equal SON! Take HIM ye wretched for your only good; Take HIM ye starving souls to be your food. Ye thirsty, come to his life giving stream: Ye Preachers, take him for your joyful theme: Take HIM, "my dear AMERICANS," he said, Be your complaints in his kind…
