Graeme Goldsworthy (Foreword), Mark Dever

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
"For many Christians the Old Testament is daunting and confusing. The books are long and speak about a culture dramatically different from ours. Mark Dever’s sermons do not substitute for reading the Old Testament, but they do provide a wonderful help in understanding it. Dever unpacks the major themes of each book with remarkable clarity, and the book also shines in conveying the message of the Old Testament for today. Here is a survey to the Old Testament that is accessible and spiritually edifying." —Thomas R. Schreiner Professor of New Testament, Associate Dean of Scripture and Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "To hear the Bible tell its own story in its own way—this is the obvious but all-too-rare strategy for reading the Book of books.

The Lost Painting: The Search for a Caravaggio Masterpiece
Jonathan Harr
0375508015
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Given the relative obscurity of 16th-century the Italian baroque master and all-around creative bad boy Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, who after a flare of fame remained relatively unknown from his death until the 1950s, the 1992 discovery of the artist's missing painting The Taking of Christ understandably stirred up a frenzy in academic circles. Harr's skillful and long-awaited follow-up to 1997's A Civil Action provides a finely detailed account of the fuss. While contoured brush strokes and pentimenti repaints have little to do with the toxic waters and legalese Harr dissected in his debut, the author writes comfortably about complex artistic processes and enlivens the potentially tedious details of artistic restoration with his lively and articulate prose. Broken into short, succinct chapters, the narrative unfolds at a...

The Message of the New Testament: Promises Kept
John MacArthur (Foreword), Mark Dever
1581347162
December 5, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The New Testament is the story of how all the promises made by God in the Old Testament were kept—and what that means for us today. The nation of Israel had many hopes: hope for a deliverer, hope for restored fellowship with God, and hope for the world to be put right. The New Testament explains how those promises were kept and how, if we are Christians, they are kept in us as well. Mark Dever surveys the historical context, organization, and theology of each New Testament book, in light of God’s Old Testament promises. His message is that of the New Testament itself, one of hope fulfilled.

A Picture Book of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
As with Adler's previous books in this series, the picture-book format serves as a highly effective, empathetic way to introduce the life and legacy of important Americans to young children. Here the highlights of King's life are presented with an emphasis on his childhood and family. Children will immediately relate to his painful early experiences of racism and understand the genesis of his lifelong struggle for racial equality. The book portrays the hatred King endured, the horror of his assassination and the intense power of his message. A single-page list of important dates closes the book. Its most striking aspect is Casilla's evocative watercolor paintings, which expand the text while celebrating the man. Ages 4-9.

Ready for Reformation
Tom Nettles

Nov 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Tom Nettles believes that Southern Baptist churches are still in the midst of reformation-reformation that began with the conservative resurgence but continues today. It continues because reformation requires much more that the recovery of biblical authority. Reformation must penetrate deep; it requires time, patience, sacrifice, and honest self-criticism. Modern day reformers must enact a serious reengagement with doctrinal and practical ideas of the past, for failure to do so may result in an aborted reformation.

Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Charles F. Stanley
0785265120
March 11, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description

As young believers we often begin our walk with Christ energetically and ready to "take on the world." But somewhere along the way, we find ourselves faltering. Why? Because we stop relying on the Holy Spirit to guide us and protect us from temptation.

Charles Stanley reminds us that the Holy Spirit is the promise from the Father for all believers. By illuminating who He is, how we receive Him, and what He can do in our lives, Stanley removes much of the mystery surrounding the Holy Spirit, and offers new hope to believers who have long been perplexed by this member of the Trinity.



Bearing the Cross
David J. Garrow
0060566922
Jan 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In this 1987 Pulitzer Prize winner, David J. Garrow, through extensive interviews, and access to F.B.I. transcripts, delves deeply into both Dr. Martin Luther King’s leadership role and his private life. He attributes King's moral and physical courage to his religious faith: King believed that he had literally been called to do the Lord's work. But from 1965, when the F.B.I. taped King in sexual encounters and sent the tape to S.C.L.L. headquarters, his associates noted a "spiritual depression", even a "death wish." Fear that exposure would ruin his public work dogged him until his assassination in 1968. While documenting the F.B.I.'s dirty tricks, Garrow never loses sight of King's achievement and vision, nor of the poignancy of King's belief that "the cross is something that you bear and...


Martin's Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Doreen Rappaport
0786807148
October 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In this elegant pictorial biography of Martin Luther King Jr., author Doreen Rappaport combines her spare, lyrical text with King's own words for an effective, age-appropriate portrayal of one of the world's greatest civil rights leaders. From King's youth, when he looked up to his preacher father and vowed one day to "get big words, too," to his death at a garbage workers' strike ("On his second day there, he was shot. He died."), Rappaport imbues the story with reverence.

Acclaimed artist Bryan Collier depicts his subject with stunning watercolor and collage illustrations, balancing glorious recreations of stained glass windows with some of the more somber images of peace marchers and the famous bus that pitched Rosa Parks into the civil rights movement. A brief chronology and bibliography provide additional...

Living in God's Love
Billy Graham

Aug 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Billy Graham's now legendary first New York Crusade in 1957 was a touchstone that affected an entire generation. Nearly fifty years later, the Reverend Billy Graham returned to New York in June 2005 for what was likely his final Crusade, preaching the power of God's love to hundreds of thousands of people over three life-changing evenings.

Living in God's Love contains all three sermons from this important event, and includes an original introduction and an afterword both written by Billy Graham specifically for this book. Living in God's Love also features black-and-white photographs from the 2005 New York Crusade, and a moving foreword by his daughter Anne Graham Lotz.

Billy Graham's message of the transforming power of Christ's love is one that is needed now more than ever.


I Have A Dream : The Story Of Martin Luther King (Scholastic Biography)
Margaret Davidson
0590442309
January 1, 1991
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4I Have a Dream follows the standard juvenile biography format, tracing King's life from his childhood days in Atlanta to his tragic death in Memphis. The text is sprinkled with familiar black-and-white photographs of varying quality garnered from the wire services and newspaper photographers. Although Davidson does not take any liberties with the facts, she uses quotation marks quite liberally, making dialogue that couldn't possibly have been recorded completely accurately come across as a literal rendering. I Have a Dream is similar to, but more expansive than, both Bains' Martin Luther King (Troll, 1985) and Hunter's Martin Luther King, Jr. (Bookwright Pr, 1985). Tom S.

The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
0446676500
January 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Celebrated Stanford University historian Clayborne Carson is the director and editor of the Martin Luther King Papers Project; with thousands of King's essays, notes, letters, speeches, and sermons at his disposal, Carson has organized King's writings into a posthumous autobiography. In an early student essay, King prophetically penned: "We cannot have an enlightened democracy with one great group living in ignorance.... We cannot have a nation orderly and sound with one group so ground down and thwarted that it is almost forced into unsocial attitudes and crime." Such statements, made throughout King's career, are skillfully woven together into a coherent narrative of the quest for social justice. The autobiography delves, for example, into the philosophical training King received at Morehouse College, Crozer Theological...
