reformedWhat is a Reformed Church?

Malcolm Watts

Electronic Format, 176 pages

Regular Price: $5.99/ Sale Price: $1.99

“A true church, Reformed according to God’s Word, is the dwelling place of God, maintaining and declaring the truth which He has been pleased to reveal,” writes author Malcolm Watts in What Is a Reformed Church? Watts then looks specifically at the basics of the Reformed faith and explains, both biblically and historically, the distinctives of a Reformed church, its doctrines, and its practices in worship, church government, church discipline, and evangelism. For both believers who are just discovering the Reformed faith and those who need to be reminded of its distinctives, this handbook offers readers solid answers to the question of what it means to be Reformed.

Endorsements  “These days the term Reformed is applied to many beliefs and practices that are not Reformed. Malcolm Watts offers a wonderful guide so that the uninitiated can know what the historic Reformed faith looks like in doctrine and practice. This book, however, is also a terrific aid for the well informed as a reminder and index of classic Reformed theology—biblical, confessional, and practical.” – J. V. Fesko, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

“Finally—a sound, concise yet meaty little book on the basics of the Reformed faith, Reformed ecclesiology, and Reformed evangelism. Malcolm Watts’s What Is a Reformed Church? is an excellent work for those just discovering the Reformed faith as well as for those who are more advanced but need to be reminded of its distinctives. Ministers would do well to urge their consistories or sessions to provide a copy for every church member or family. Its biblical content, sanctified scholarship, challenging insights, and warm pastoral applications are just what the church needs today. I know of no better basic Reformed handbook for believers.” –  Joel R. Beeke, President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletic, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary


plantingPlanting, Watering, Growing: Planting Confessionally Reformed Churches in the 21st Century

Daniel R. Hyde and Shane Lems

Electronic Format, 328 pages

Regular Price: $9.99/ Sale Price: $2.99

As a response to the unique challenges facing the twenty-first-century American church, church planting has become a popular topic. But at a time when churches that spread the seed of the Word through preaching, the sacraments, and prayer are greatly needed, much of the focus has been on planting churches that adapt pop culture to meet “consumer demand.”  In Planting, Watering,Growing, the authors of this collection of essays weave together theological wisdom, personal experiences, and practical suggestions, guiding readers through the foundations and methods of planting confessional churches that uphold the Word of God.

Endorsements   The Reformed churches confess a missional faith. We confess that God the Son came voluntarily and was sent (missio) by the Father to be the Redeemer and that He has, in turn, sent His church to proclaim the good news, to plant churches, to administer the sacraments and discipline. Few books on church planting and mission combine a passion for the glory of Christ, a heartfelt concern for the lost, and a commitment to the means of grace. This volume does just that and therefore is essential reading for those seeking to serve Christ’s mission Christ’s way. – R. Scott Clark, Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

When so many seek to plant and grow churches with slick marketing, demographics studies, and decaf cappuccinos, Hyde and Lems bring a robust, Christ-centered, and confessionally Reformed approach to church planting. Scripturally informed, confessionally sound, and practically minded, this book offers sage counsel for anyone interested in home missions and church planting. – J. V. Fesko, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Seminary California

portraitA Portrait of Paul: Identifying a True Minister of Christ

Rob Ventura and Jeremy Walker

Electronic Format, 207 pages

Regular Price: $9.99/ Sale  Price: $3.99

What does a true pastor look like, and what constitutes a faithful ministry? How can we identify the life and labors of one called by God to serve in the church of Jesus Christ? To address these questions, Rob Ventura and Jeremy Walker examine how the apostle Paul describes his pastoral relation to the people of God in Colossians 1:24–2:5. By discussing these essential attitudes, qualities, and characteristics of a faithful minister of Christ, A Portrait of Paul provides gospel ministers an example of what they should be, and demonstrates for churches the kind of pastors they will seek if they desire men after God’s own heart.

Endorsements  “The apostle Paul has always been a hero whom I look to as a model for my ministry. His unrelenting faithfulness in the worst kinds of trials is a remarkable example to every pastor and missionary. In the midst of suffering, hardship, and (in the end) the abandonment of his own friends and fellow workers, Paul remained steadfast, dynamic, and utterly devoted to Christ. This invaluable study of Paul’s life from Rob Ventura and Jeremy Walker is a wonderful, powerful, soul-stirring examination of Paul’s self-sacrifice and his unfaltering service to the church. It will both motivate and encourage you, especially if you’re facing trials, opposition, or discouragement in your service for Christ.”—John MacArthur, Pastor/Teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California and President of The Master’s College and Seminary“In this dual-authored portrait of Paul as a minister of the gospel, Ventura and Walker have captured the very essence of ministry. On every page, we are forced to reflect upon the dimensions of apostolic ministry and urged to comply. Packed with exposition and application of the finest sort, these pages urge gospel-focused, Christ-centered, God-exalting, Spirit-empowered, self-denying ministry. I warmly recommend it.”—Derek W. H. Thomas, John Richards Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

Commentary Series

romansRomans, 14 Volume Set

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Hardcover, 5075 pages

Retail Price: $369.00/ Our Price: $260.00

This is the complete 14 volume set of sermons on Romans by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. All over the world in the most diverse situations are to be found Christian men and women who owe an incalculable debt to the ministry of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones who for thirty years was the minister of Westminster Chapel, London. His longest series of expositions was this 14 volume set of Romans, the greatest of New Testament Epistles.

Just as Lloyd-Jones’ public ministry stood out as widely different from contemporary preaching, so his Romans came into bookshops with an appeal that took many by surprise. Not a few thought that the nature of his pulpit ministry would inhibit its continuance on paper – ‘He needed to be heard, not read.’ But those of that opinion were mistaking where his real strength lay. First of all, it lay in the truth he was speaking, not in its delivery. Further, his whole view of preaching meant that he addressed himself to the heart and conscience, as well as to the mind, and sermonic material of that kind has never failed to hold readers as well as hearers.


Poem by Isaac Watts


Salvation – oh, the joyful sound!

‘Tis pleasure to our ears;

A sovereign balm for every wound,

A cordial for our fears.


Buried in sorrow and in sin,

At hell’s dark door we lay;

But we arise by grace divine

To see a heavenly day.


Salvation – let the echo fly,

The spacious earth around;

While all the armies of the sky

Conspire to raise the sound.


Poem taken from Worthy is the Lamb 

A Letter to a Young Convert, Part Two

Part 1

Sometime in 1741, a young lady residing in Smithfield, Connecticut, who had lately made a profession of religion, requested Jonathan Edwards to give her some advice as to the best manner of maintaining a religious life. In reply, he addressed to her the following letter, which will be found eminently useful to all persons just entering on the Christian course.

  1. That you may pass a correct judgment concerning yourself, always look upon those as the best discoveries and the best comforts that you have the most of these two effects: those that make you least and lowest, and most like a child, and those that most engage and fix your heart in a full and firm disposition to deny yourself for God, and to spend and be spent for Him.
  2. If at any time you fall into doubts about the state of your soul, in dark and dull frames of mind, it is proper to review your past experience; but do not consume too much time and strength in this way. Rather apply yourself, with all your might, to an earnest pursuit after renewed experience, new light, and new lively acts of faith and love. One new discovery of the glory of Christ’s face will do more to scatter clouds of darkness in one minute than examining old experience, by the best marks that can be given, for a whole year.
  3. When the exercise of grace is low, and corruption prevails, and, by that means, fear prevails, do not desire to have fear cast out by any other way than by the reviving and prevailing of love in the heart. By this, fear will be effectually compelled, as darkness in a room vanishes away when the pleasant beams of the sun are let into it.
  4. When you counsel and warn others, do it earnestly, affectionately, and thoroughly; and when you are speaking to equals, let your warnings be intermixed with expressions of your own unworthiness, and of the sovereign grace that makes you differ.
  5. If you would set up religious meetings of young women by themselves, to be attended once in a while besides the other meetings that you attend, I should think it would be very proper and profitable.
  6. Under special difficulties, or when in great need of, or great longing after, any particular mercy for yourself or others, set apart a day for secure prayer and fasting; and let the day be spent not only in petitions for the mercies you desire, but in searching your heart, and in looking over your past life and confessing your sins before God – not as is wont to be done in public prayer, but by a very particular rehearsal before God the sins of your past life, from your childhood hitherto, before and after conversion, with the circumstances and aggravations attending them, spreading all the abominations of your heart very particularly, and as fully as possible, before Him.
  7. Do not let the adversaries of the cross have occasion to reproach religion on your account. How holy should the children of God, the redeemed and the beloved of the Son of God, behave themselves. Therefore, ‘walk as children of light and of the day’, and ‘adorn the doctrines of God your Savior’. Especially, abound in what are called the Christians virtues, and which make you like the Lamb of God; be meek and lowly of heart, and full of pure, heavenly, and humble love to all; abound in deeds of love to others, and self-denial for others; and let there be in you a disposition to account others better than yourself.
  8. Pray much for the ministers and the church of God, especially, that He would carry on the glorious work which He has now begun till the world shall be full of His glory.

Retail Price: $20.00/ Sale Price: $8.00

This compilation of sermons by the great Jonathan Edwards contains fourteen sermons, nine of which have never been published. Years before the Great Awakening, Edwards had been telling children and youth to seek salvation. By the end of his tenure at his church in Northampton, he had delivered thirty sermons addressing children and young adults. Also included is a list of Bible Questions for the Children of Northampton that Edwards expected his young people to know – some of which would prove difficult for today’s seminarians.

Jonathan Edwards was born in 1703. He pastored the church at Northampton, Massachusetts before being removed by the congregation. He also was pastor to an American Indian congregation at Stockbridge where he did most of his writing. Edwards accepted the presidency of the College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton University), but died from a smallpox vaccination only a week after taking office.

treatiseA Treatise on Earthly-Mindedness

Jeremiah Burroughs 

Hardcover, 259 pages

Retail Price: $20.00/ Our Price: $10.00

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) is one of the most beloved of the 17th century English Puritans. In this important work, Burroughs shows from Scripture the great sin of thinking as the world thinks rather than thinking God’s thoughts after Him. Then, realizing that right conduct is the result of right thinking, Burroughs gives us another gem in the second treatise offered here, A Heavenly Conversation, or Walking with God.

The Puritans rightly discerned the relationship between a person’s doctrine and his or her walk before God and fellow man. May the Lord use these sermons to give us the same kind of discernment in our day. May we learn to think biblically, and then may we begin to act accordingly.

Endorsement  “We give ourselves with abandon to our pleasures as if we would die tomorrow. But we build houses and we accumlate things as if we would live forever: You ought to consider this more. The Puritans were great at meditating on this life with the next one in view. I encourage you to read Jeremiah Burroughs’ A Treatise on Earthly Mindedness. It is a wonderful meditation on exactly what this kind of worldly mindedness means, and what it looks like in our lives. ” – Mark Dever


logicLogic: The Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry after Truth

Isaac Watts

Hardcover, 352 pages

Retail Price: $28.00/ Our Price: $14.00

As a child of Puritan parents, it is not surprising that Isaac Watts was greatly concerned about people’s ability to think clearly. Whether a man was studying for the ministry or any other of the sciences, the ability to reason rightly was of utmost importance. Watts’s work on logic and reason became a standard textbook for nearly 200 years, being used in such schools as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, and Yale.

In Logic, Watts address proper thinking under the four basic functions of the human mind: perception, judgment, reasoning, and disposition. In part one, Watts addresses human perception, the cultivation of ideas, and how we associate them with words. In part two, Watts treats human judgment and its ability to construct various kinds of propositions, while giving guidance for avoiding the formation of bad judgments. Part three covers our ability to reason, giving instruction on the use of syllogisms for constructing a good argument. Part four discusses the mind’s disposition as a method of arranging our thoughts for better understanding and memory.

This book will help discipline the mind and train the reader to discern proper thinking and argumentation in seeking truth.

It is nearly impossible to know the Savior without being elevated to lofty and exalted thoughts of Him. It is little wonder, then, that the Puritans put their pens to writing about the Physician of their souls as well as matters of the soul.

Psalm Singing

psalmsAmong evangelicals, singing psalms is largely a thing of the past. In this pamphlet, Joel R. Beeke gives nine reasons why churches ought to return to the ancient practice of psalm singing. Here you will find the biblical basis, the experiential benefits, and the sheer beauty and glory of singing psalms. Those hoping to recover biblical faith in our day will do well to take part in the Christ- exalting and soul-enriching worship found in the inspired Psalms.

Author  Joel R. Beeke is president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and a pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Endorsement  “’The Psalms are full of Christ’ is the foremost of many profound and compelling observations by Joel Beeke in his plea for the recovery of singing the Psalms of the Bible in the worship of God’s people. The tragic neglect of this, the only divinely inspired hymnbook ever published, is a reflection of the shallowness of much of what passes for praise in a culture where endless repetition of emotive mantras – ‘Jesus is the Rock and He rolls my blues away’ over and over again comes to mind. Beeke makes the case for the unique and incomparable depth and richness of the Psalms – for our singing in praise to their Author – showing how they reach into every corner of human experience, from painful to pleasurable, with the message of the Christ of the gospel and the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. This is a clarion call that recalls the church to the lost blessings of singing God’s songs to His praise and glory and our comfort and joy. Most warmly recommended.” – Gordon J. Keddie, Reformed Presbyterian pastor and author

Retail Price: $14.00/ Our Price: $11.00

Available: October 5, 2015

Why the 17:18 series?

In Deuteronomy 17, Moses is leaving final instructions concerning the future of Israel. As a prophet of God, Moses foretells of when Israel will place a king over the nation (v. 14). In verse 18, the king is commanded to not simply acquire a copy of the law (the entire book of Deuteronomy) from the “scroll publishing house,” but to hand write his own copy of the law. Thirty-four hundred years later, educators are “discovering” that students that physically write out their notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or visually reading the information. Apparently, God knew this to be true of the kings of Israel also. From such understanding came the conception of this series of books.

How to Use These Books

Each book is organized so that you can write out your very own copy of Scripture. You will be writing the Bible text only on the right hand page of the book. This should make for easier writing and also allows ample space on the left page to write your own notes and comments. From time to time a question or word will be lightly printed on the left page; these questions are to aid in further study, but should not interfere with your own notes and comments.

Endorsements  “In the last fifteen years, there has been renewed interest in the nature and purpose of the fourth commandment and what many refer to as the Puritan Sabbath. By God’s grace a conversation has begun that is helping many come to a fuller appreciation for and use of the Lord’s Day. Pastor Ryan McGraw’s voice in the conversation needs to be heard. As he says, ‘I have sought to address what I believe to be the primary underlying issues behind the widespread neglect of the Sabbath day.’ Pastor McGraw’s book is chock-full of biblical insights, freshly applied to the issue of the Christian Sabbath. I have been helped by the book and know that each one who reads it will be as well.” — Joseph A. Pipa Jr., President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

“Far too many Christians only believe in nine commandments. The command to keep a day of rest on which to worship our triune covenant Lord is deemed as irrelevant or no longer binding. Providing helpful exegesis and theological consideration, Ryan McGraw gives the church important reasons to recover the abiding validity and necessity of the fourth commandment. Far from being legalistic, McGraw’s treatment encourages all Christians to find worship, rest, and a foretaste of heaven to come on each and every Lord’s Day.” — J. V.

perkinsThe Works of William Perkins, Volume 2

William Perkins

Hardcover, 832 pages

Retail Price: $50.00/ Our Price: $38.00

Available: October 12, 2015

The Works of William Perkins fills a major gap in Reformed and Puritan theology. Though Perkins is best known today for his writings on predestination, he also wrote prolifically on many subjects. His works filled over two thousand large pages of small print in three folio volumes and were reprinted several times in the decades after his death. However, his complete works have not been in print since the mid-seventeenth century. This modern typeset edition of the Works includes four volumes of Perkins’s expositions of Scripture, three volumes of his doctrinal and polemical treatises, and three volumes of his practical writings.

This second volume contains Perkins’s Commentary on Galatians. Perkins preached on Galatians each Lord’s Day for over three years. Ralph Cudworth obtained Perkins’s handwritten notes and edited them for publication. Because Perkins did not complete the commentary, Cudworth supplemented the manuscript with his own comments on chapter 6.


fearThe Forgotten Fear: Where Have All the God Fearers Gone?

Albert N. Martin

Paperback, 208 pages

Retail Price: $15.00/ Our Price: $11.25

Available: October 14, 2015

The fear of God is an important theme in the Bible, yet many Christians today overlook it or treat it carelessly. Fearing God is the soul of godliness, and those who claim to love God should desire to understand what it means to fear Him. The Forgotten Fear revisits this important topic. Author Albert Martin first establishes the theme of the fear of God in both the Old and New Testaments, and then defines what fearing God means. Finally, he addresses the practical implications of fearing God, showing its expression in the lives of Abraham and Joseph and providing instruction for believers today to maintain and increase their fear of God.

Endorsement  “The twenty-first-century church desperately needs this book. The fear of God is evaporating from our consciousness, and the effects are tragically public. I am convinced that Albert Martin is casting forth the seeds of the revival that we need in the nick of time. The Forgotten Fear of God is a comprehensive journey from Genesis to Revelation, tracing the rich contours of this pivotal doctrine. It is a feast full of surprises. We need the kind of revival that springs from the ‘godly fear’ of God. This book is a gift to the church in time of need. You will know and love God more after reading it.” — Scott Brown, president, National Center for Family-Integrated Churches

God’s Wondrous Law

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. – Psalm 119:18

God gives light to us to see the wonder of his Word, the prophet says. We are blind to the gospel even in the midst of the clearest light until God removes the veil of blindness from our eyes.

The psalmist confesses that his eyes were shut, making him unable to discern the light of the heavenly doctrine until God, by the invisible grace of his Spirit, opened them. The psalmist seems to be deploring his own blindness as well as that of the whole human race. But he tells us that the remedy is at hand, provided we do not, by trusting our own wisdom, reject the gracious illumination that God offers to us.

Let us realize that we do not receive the illumination of the Spirit of God to make us despise God’s law and take pleasure in secret revelations, like many fanatics who do not regard themselves spiritual unless they reject the Word of God and put in its place their own wild speculations.

The prophet’s goal is very different. He wishes to inform us that God illumines us so we are able to discern the light of life that god manifests in his Word. He mentions the wondrous things of the law to humble us, to help us contemplate that law with admiration; and to convince us of our great need of god’s grace to comprehend the mysteries of his Word which surpass our limited capacity. The law includes not only the Ten Commandments but also the covenant of eternal salvation with all its provisions, which God has made with us. Knowing that Christ, ‘in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’, ‘is the end of the law’, we need not be surprised that the prophet commends it and the sublime mysteries which it contains (Col. 2:3; Rom. 10:4).

For Meditation: When we focus on the wonders of the revelations of God’s Word, we are much safer from the temptation to desire new and special revelations from God. The Bible contains so many wondrous things that a lifetime of study would not reveal them all to us; study them further to find new strength for each new day.

A Letter to a Young Convert, Part One

Sometime in 1741, a young lady residing in Smithfield, Connecticut, who had lately made a profession of religion, requested Jonathan Edwards to give her some advice as to the best manner of maintaining a religious life. In reply, he addressed to her the following letter, which will be found eminently useful to all persons just entering on the Christian course.

My dear young friend,

As you desired me to send you in writing some directions as to how to conduct yourself in your Christian course, I would now answer your request. The sweet remembrance of the great things I have lately seen at Smithfield inclines me to do anything in my power to contribute to the spiritual joy and prosperity of God’s people there.

  1. I would advise you to keep up as a great a striving and earnestness in religion as if you knew yourself to be in a natural state and were still seeking conversion. We advise persons under conviction to be earnest and violent for the kingdom of heaven; but when they have attained to conversion, they ought not be any less watchful, laborious, and earnest in the whole work of religion, but the more so; for they are under infinitely greater obligations. For want of this, many persons, in a few months after their conversion, have begun to lose the sweet and lively sense of spiritual things, and to grow cold and dark, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows, whereas, if they had done as the apostle did (Philippians 3:12-14), their path would have been as the shining light, that shines more and more unto the perfect day.
  2. Do not leave off seeking, striving, and praying for the very same things that we exhort unconverted persons to strive for, and a degree of which you have already had in conversion. Pray that your eyes may be opened, that you may receive sight, that you may know yourself and be brought to God’s footstool, that you may see the glory of God and Christa and be raised from the dead, and have the love of Christ shed abroad in your heart. Those who have most of these things have need to still pray for them; for there is so much blindness and hardness, pride and death remaining that they still need to have that work of God wrought upon them, further to enlighten and enliven them, that shall bring them out of darkness into God’s marvelous light, and be a kind of new conversion and resurrection from the dead. There are very few requests that are proper for an impenitent man that are not also, in some sense, proper for the godly.
  3. When you hear a sermon, hear for yourself. Though what is spoken may be more especially directed to the unconverted, or to those who in other respects are in different circumstances from yourself, yet let the chief intent of your mind be to consider, ‘In what respect is this applicable to me? And what application ought I to make of this for my own soul’s good?’
  4. Though God has forgiven and forgotten your past sins, yet do not forget them yourself; often remember what a wretched bond slave you were in the land of Egypt. Often bring to mind your particular acts of sin before conversion, as the blessed Apostle Paul is often mentioning his old blaspheming, persecuting spirit and his injuriousness to the renewed, humbling his heart, and acknowledging that he was the least of the apostles, not worthy to be called an apostle, and the chief of sinners. Be often confessing your old sins to God, and let that text be often in your min which is found in Ezekiel 16:63.
  5. Remember that you have done more cause, on some accounts a thousand times more, to lament and humble yourself for sins that have been committed since conversion than before, because of the infinitely greater obligations that are upon you to live to God, and to look upon the faithfulness of Christ in unchangeably continuing His loving-kindness, notwithstanding all your great unworthiness since your conversion.
  6. Be always greatly abased for your remaining sin, and never think that you lie low enough for it; but yet be not discouraged or disheartened by it for, though we are exceedingly sinful, yet we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, the preciousness of whose blood, the merit of whose righteousness, and the greatness of whose love and faithfulness infinitely overtop the highest mountains of our sins.
  7. When you engage in the duty of prayer, come to the Lord’s Supper, or attend any other duty of divine worship, come to Christ, as Mary Magdalene did; come and cast yourself at His feet and kiss them, and pour forth upon Him the sweet, perfumed ointment of divine love out of a pure and broken heart, as she poured the precious ointment out of her pure, broken alabaster box.
  8. Remember that pride is the worst viper that is in the heart, the greatest disturber of the soul’s peace and of sweet communion with Christ; it was the first sin committed, and lies lowest in the foundation of Satan’s whole building; it is with greatest difficulty rooted out, and is the most hidden, secret and deceitful of all lusts, often creeping insensibly into the midst of religion, sometimes under the guise of humility itself.

Rosaria Butterfield

Runtime: 7.33 HRS (6 CDs)

Read by Author

Rosaria, by the standards of many, was living a very good life. She had a tenured position at a large university in a field for which she cared deeply. She owned two homes with her partner, in which they provided hospitality to students and activists that were looking to make a difference in the world. There, her partner rehabilitated abandoned and abused dogs. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department’s curriculum. And then, in her late 30s, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down-the idea that Christianity, a religion that she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was, an idea that flew in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a “train wreck” at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

knowingKnowing God – Audio CD

J. I. Packer

Runtime: 8 HRS

A lifelong pursuit of knowing God should embody the Christian’s existence. According to eminent theologian J.I. Packer, however, Christians have become enchanted by modern skepticism and have joined the “gigantic conspiracy of misdirection” by failing to put first things first. Knowing God aims to redirect our attention to the simple, deep truth that to know God is to love His Word.

What began as a number of consecutive articles angled for “honest, no-nonsense readers who were fed up with facile Christian verbiage” in 1973, Knowing God has become a contemporary classic by creating “small studies out of great subjects.” Each chapter is so specific in focus (covering topics such as the trinity, election, God’s wrath, and God’s sovereignty), that each succeeding chapter’s theology seems to rival the next, until one’s mind is so expanded that one’s entire view of God has changed.

Author Elizabeth Eliot wrote that amid the lofty content Packer “puts the hay where the sheep can reach it–plainly shows us ordinary folks what it means to know God.” Having rescued us from the individual hunches of our ultra-tolerant theological age, Packer points the reader to the true character of God with his theological competence and compassionate heart. The lazy and faint-hearted should be warned about this timeless work–God is magnified, the sinner is humbled, and the saint encouraged.
