“The Cross is Not Enough”

A Clarion Call for the Centrality of the Resurrection: I would like to recommend a book by Ross Clifford and Philip Johnson with the provocative title of,  ”The Cross Is Not Enough:  Living as Witnesses to the Resurrection.”  This book is calling the Church back to an emphasis on the Resurrection which they contend is [...]

Justice…With Eyes Wide Open! by George Sarris

If I had a nickel for every time someone made the comment – God is not only loving. He is also just! – I would be a wealthy man. People say that so often, and with such confidence and sometimes even condescension, that you would think that this one statement suddenly provides the final answer [...]

I read J. I. Packer’s Introduction to John Owen’s Death of Death in the Death of Christ as I was being challenged out of my Arminian position into the Reformed faith.

They were certainly not perfect – they had the same weaknesses and shortcomings, and made many of the same mistakes as other parents.  But, I always knew that they loved me. I always knew that they wanted the best [...]

God’s Ultimate Plan by D.M. Lloyd-Jones

A great preacher who has been named “the last of the Puritans” here gives us his breath-taking presentation of God’s ultimate plan. Note the astounding layout of God’s intention for the restoration of His entire creation yet observe how Lloyd-Jones qualifies his statements in paragraph seven. If this qualification is taken seriously you must erase [...]
