Wherever the human dimension is involved, corruption is present Christians can and do sin because they have not yet been delivered of that old sin nature which is a war in themselves with their new nature received when they became believers.

There are problems in every Christian church. Wherever the human dimension is involved, corruption is present Christians can and do sin because they have not yet been delivered of that old sin nature which is a war in themselves with their new nature received when they became believers. So the setting of a local church includes the stark reality of a spiritual warfare between evil and righteousness. Two main values of studying I Corinthians are in seeing God's diagnosis of our own spiritual maladies, and learning His prescriptions for cure. The Holy Spirit would not have inspired Paul to write this letter to the Corinthian church, which was plagued with problems, if there was no hope for its recovery. This Bible self-study guide is a complete do-it-yourself Bible study manual. Extensive coverage of settings, characters, and texts of I Corinthians is included. Also included are extensive helps, numerous outlines, charts, maps, and diagrams. This study is not just an explanation of the text but a thorough response-oriented aid to personal study; it is excellent for individual, group, or class study. [less]

Do You Control Your Phone—Or Does Your Phone Control You? Within a few years of its unveiling, the smartphone had become part of us, fully integrated into the daily patterns of our lives. Never offline, always within reach, we now wield in our hands a magic wand of technological power we have only begun to grasp. But it raises new enigmas, too. Never more connected, we seem to be growing more distant. Never more efficient, we have never been more distracted. Drawing from the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed us—for good and bad. Reinke calls us to cultivate wise thinking and healthy habits in the digital age, encouraging us to maximize the many blessings, to avoid the various pitfalls, and to wisely wield the most powerful gadget of human connection ever unleashed.

SAY NO TO FEAR AND ANXIETY. So many things to worry about and so little time to worry! Christians obviously are not immune to the troubles of life, and when troubles do come we're urged to rise above them and experience "peace that passes understanding." But how, in day-to-day life, does that really happen? While numerous books have been written on overcoming anxiety, Anxiety Attacked goes beyond pop psychology's temporary cures by returning us to our only true source of comfort and victory—Scripture. John MacArthur compassionately demonstrates from such passages as Matthew 6:25-34, Philippians 4:6-9, and 1 Peter 5:5-7 God's concern about our anxious situations, and helps us appropriate His resources for dealing with them calmly, yet effectively. So when anxiety attacks, attack anxiety!Dr. John MacArthur, Jr. is Pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and President of The Master's College and Seminary. Known for his dynamic expository preaching, John is heard daily on the "Grace to You" syndicated radio broadcast and has a cassette ministry that has distributed more than eight million tapes. His many books include The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series, The Gospel According to Jesus, Our Sufficiency in Christ, How to Meet the Enemy, Saved Without a Doubt, and God: Coming Face to Face with His Majesty.

BASIC BIBLE INTERPRETATION Can the Bible really be understood? Are Old Testament prophecies relevant for today? How can I understand the symbolism of the Book of Revelation? What is the relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament? Why study Bible interpretation? Dr. Roy Zuck points out that it is essential for understanding and teaching the Bible properly, essential as a step beyond observation, and essential for applying the Bible correctly. He discusses the challenges of Bible interpretation, considers the problems of Bible interpretation, explores the history of Bible interpretation, and defines key terms--all in a practical, down-to-earth way. Though Dr. Zuck's many years of teaching and scholarship are evident in this book, he has written in language understandable to all who are serious about bible study and who want to know better what Scripture means. Basic Bible Interpretation lives up to its title. It deals with the basics and doesn't confuse the reader with extraneous material. It focuses on the bible as the Word of God and handles that Word with "reverence and godly fear." It tells us how to interpret this marvelous Book, and even gives the reader opportunity to put the principles into practice. In every way, this book is a practical tool for the serious student who wants to study the Bible and apply its truths. Warren W. Wiersbe Author, Conference Speaker Having taught and written in the area of hermeneutics for almost thirty years, I am convinced that there is no more important course in the seminary curriculum for training in the scriptures. As Roy Zuck has so ably demonstrated, we cannot know the message of the bible for today until we know its meaning. Dr. Zuck's work is intensely biblical and comprehensive but at the same time it is simple and uncomplicated. This is a book we have needed for many years and I praise the Lord that it is now available. Earl D. Radmacher Chancellor, Professor of Systematic Theology Western Seminary At last! A book on hermeneutics you can understand. Dr. Zuck has drawn heavily on his many years of teaching in the seminary classroom to present an excellent treatise on biblical interpretation. While this book will be well received in the classroom, it is one that I will be wholeheartedly recommending to my congregation. While the scholarship is clearly present, it is nevertheless most readable and understandable by the average layperson. This book will make a valuable contribution to your ability to comprehend the Scriptures. Louis A. Barbieri Senior Pastor Des Plaines Bible Church Des Plaines, Illinois [less]

Leadership today is no easy task. Christian leaders called to shepherd others get caught in power struggles and are tempted to abuse their pastoral authority. Pastors feel that they must project strength and certainty in order to preach and minister credibly. Too often our models of leadership are shaped more by culture than by Christ. John Stott offers an alternative vision in this biblical approach to servant leadership, exemplified by the apostle Paul in his ministry to the church in Corinth. Above all, Stott reassures us that God is at work even in the midst of our human weakness. "God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 1 Corinthians 1:27 A clear articulation of the nature of leadership as well as the thoughtful study of Scripture we have come to expect from John Stott, this exposition of 1 Corinthians 1--4 offers us a model of ministry surprisingly relevant twenty centuries later: leadership rooted in humility and grace, serving the church with the love of Christ.

Whether it's a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect- at least for those who have no idea what it will be like.For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful.

"The end of the world is coming." From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society's nervous fascination with the future. Whether it's a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect- at least for those who have no idea what it will be like.For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we actually look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world.All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian's devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

A careful and informed assessment of the 'emerging church' by a respected author and scholar The 'emerging church' movement has generated a lot of excitement and exerts an astonishingly broad influence. Is it the wave of the future or a passing fancy? Who are the leaders and what are they saying? The time has come for a mature assessment. D. A. Carson not only gives those who may be unfamiliar with it a perceptive introduction to the emerging church movement, but also includes a skillful assessment of its theological views. Carson addresses some troubling weaknesses of the movement frankly and thoughtfully, while at the same time recognizing that it has important things to say to the rest of Christianity. The author strives to provide a perspective that is both honest and fair. Anyone interested in the future of the church in a rapidly changing world will find this an informative and stimulating read. D. A. Carson (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He is the author of over 45 books, including the Gold Medallion Award-winning book The Gagging of God, and is general editor of Telling the Truth and Worship by the Book. He has served as a pastor and is an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world. [less]

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever (Psalm 119:160). While many Christians are compromising the Scriptures with what they think is modern science, God is calling many scientists to defend the faith. The result is a sudden surge of awareness that the Bible is true after all - even the long - ridiculed doctrines such as a literal six-day creation. A young earth, and a worldwide cataclysmic flood in the days of Noah. In this book, both the [...]

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever (Psalm 119:160). While many Christians are compromising the Scriptures with what they think is modern science, God is calling many scientists to defend the faith. The result is a sudden surge of awareness that the Bible is true after all - even the long - ridiculed doctrines such as a literal six-day creation. A young earth, and a worldwide cataclysmic flood in the days of Noah. In this book, both the scientific and historical aspects of these issues as well as their evangelistic and practical spiritual applications, are discussed at length. [less]
