Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays
This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Christian Focus Publications and they are offering quite the prize package (or five of them, to be more precise). First, they are introducing two brand new titles from a brand new series from Christian Focus Publications in the Mentor imprint, so new they are not even available to purchase. You have the opportunity of being the first to own these handsome volumes!

The Mentor Expository Series holds to an inerrant view of Scripture. They are thoroughly researched with helpful practical application. This is a timely resource for pastors and Bible teachers who want to draw on Christ-centered expository teaching and for the lay reader who wants to delve more deeply into the riches of the Word of God.

GalatiansGalatians is by Terry L. Johnson who is Senior Pastor of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia and an author of a number of books including The Parables of Jesus , The Family Worship Book, When Grace Transforms, When Grace Comes Home and When Grace Comes Alive.

In this book he skilfully exposits 22 chapters which look at the theological aspect of Galatians then 18 chapters looking at the practical outworking of the letter. It contains a wealth of material for helping us to live Christian lives; to walk by the Spirit.

RevelationRevelation is by Douglas F Kelly who is the Richard Jordan Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina and an author of a number of books including If God Already Knows Why Pray?, Creation and Change and New Life in the Wasteland.

In 65 expositional chapters, he draws our attention to the central theme of this profound book; the Lord Jesus Christ himself who is in full and sovereign control, the victorious lamb on his throne. And what a great unveiling of the glorious saviour is revealed in this apocalyptic book!

We are also pleased to include the highly recommended and growing ‘Teaching’ series which is designed to help the pastor, small group leader or a youth worker teach their way through a Biblical book. It will help you in planning and executing a lesson advising on background, structure, key points and application. This series is published in conjunction with Proclamation Trust Media whose aim is to encourage ministry that seeks above all to expound the Bible as God’s Word for today.
