If you have been visiting this site for any length of time, you will have seen some SquareQuotes—the quotes combined with graphics that I release every day both here and across social media. A couple of years ago I teamed up with Jules Koblun (the artist who creates them) and Harvest House Publishers to create a devotional book, Knowing and Enjoying God. Subtitled “Words from the Wise,” it combined 101 original quote graphics with short devotionals. Today I am pleased to announce that we have released a second volume which is titled Understanding and Trusting Our Great God.

These devotionals were all inspired by a question in the Westminster Shorter Catechism which asks simply, “What is God?” The answer is glorious in both its use of the English language and its deep theological truths: “God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.” The devotions are all based on particularly helpful quotes from Christian authors, pastors, musicians, and theologians. It is my hope and prayer that these devotionals provide comfort and encouragement and that they better equip Christians to both better understand God and to trust in his works and ways.

Understanding and Trusting Our Great God is available in hardcover and ebook formats. You can find it at all your favorite stores including:

    Cognitive Decline and Common Faults

    When visiting a far-off church, I met a man who, with sadness, told me about his father’s final sermon. A lifelong pastor and preacher, his father had withdrawn from full-time ministry several years prior, but still preached from time to time. On this Sunday he took to the pulpit, read his text, and gave his…
