What Every Christian Should Know about Same-sex Attraction

SSA_3D_CoverChristians are in the crosshairs of today’s culture, which celebrates the gay lifestyle and accuses those who stand on Biblical convictions of engaging in a new brand of McCarthyism. We should not despair, however. This is a God-ordained opportunity for followers of Jesus to love our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender friends, and for the church to minister to those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction.

What Every Christian Should Know about Same-sex Attraction offers a brief overview of the Bible’s clear teachings on homosexuality, and how Christians can express Christ-like love for our LGBT friends.

What Every Christian Should Know about Islam

islam-cover-3dThe events of 9/11 thrust the religion of Muhammad into American consciousness and evoked responses ranging from the demonization of all Muslims to the excuse that terrorists had hijacked Islam. Neither reaction is grounded in truth. The world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are precious people for whom Christ died. At the same time, Islam is a dangerous false religion that enslaves people and strives for world domination.

What Every Christian Should Know about Islam offers a brief overview of this 1400-year-old religion and seeks to answer key questions about Islam from a Biblical perspective.

The Kingdom According to Jesus: A Study of Jesus’ Parables on the Kingdom of Heaven

KingdomMatthew records no fewer than 13 parables of Jesus about the kingdom of heaven. No doubt, the Son of God placed great emphasis on the kingdom, declaring it to be “at hand” and yet coming. Jesus used parables to reveal previously hidden truths about the kingdom, but for many it remains a mystery. When we turn to the Scriptures, we find perplexing and seemingly contradictory teachings about the kingdom, yet it was the primary focus of Christ’s teaching.

What is the kingdom of heaven? Is the kingdom here already, or are we to wait for it? Why did Jesus use parables to describe it? Who’s in the kingdom and who’s not? Why are some cast out of the kingdom? And what can we learn from Jesus’ stories of mustard seeds, pearls and bridesmaids? The Kingdom According to Jesus explores these questions in a simple and compelling  way that encourages readers to “seek first the kingdom of God” (Matt. 6:33).

Isaiah: Download the complete (and free) commentary

Isaiah was “the greatest of the writing prophets,” according to the New Scofield Study Bible. “No other prophet has written with such majestic eloquence about the glory of God…. Of all the O.T. prophets, Isaiah is the most comprehensive in range. No prophet is more fully occupied with the redemptive work of Christ. In no other place, in the Scriptures written under the law, is there so clear a view of grace” (p. 924).

Isaiah’s messages hearken back to the eternal counsels of God and the creation of the universe (see 42:5) and gaze forward to God’s creation of new heavens and a new earth (65:17; 66:22). While there are many important prophecies concerning Jerusalem, Israel and Judah, Isaiah’s predictions encompass all the nations of the earth (see 2:4; 5:26; 14:6, 26; 40:15, 17, 22; 66:18).

His writings have a strong Messianic focus. Isaiah foretells the Messiah’s birth (7:14; 9:6); His deity (9:6-7); His ministry (9:1-2; 42:1-7; 61:1-2); His death (52:1 – 53:12); and His future reign on earth (chaps 2; 11; 65).
