Indwelling Sin in Believers

Indwelling Sin in Believers

By: John Owen

The Pastor’s Monthly Book Selection – February, 2019

Banner of Truth Trust has hit another home run with the publication of an abridged and modernized version of Indwelling Sin in Believers. The title might seem somewhat unappealing, but I have found Owen’s thought-provoking treatise to be a refreshment to my soul.

Not only does the author speak to the experience of every believer in his/her battle against sin, but he does so in a manner that gives us confidence in the grace of Christ, brings comfort to our hearts, and causes us to rejoice in our relationship with our all-sufficient God. As I read Owen’s material, I found myself enlightened by his insights regarding the inner working of sin and encouraged to draw nearer to God in sweet communion.

I recommend this book to the congregation of Grace & Peace Presbyterian Church as a companion to our current series through Galatians or simply as a cup of cold water to a thirsty soul.

What is the Gospel?

What is the Gospel?

By: Greg Gilbert

The Pastor’s Monthly Book Selection – January, 2019

What Is the Gospel? (9Marks)One of the great disappointments in the ministry of the apostle Paul was the abandonment of the gospel by the Galatian churches. Throughout that New Testament letter, Paul agonized over the ignorance and distortion of the most basic aspects of what it means to be accepted by God.

Every age has had to struggle with a similar problem, and ours is no different. Since there is nothing more important to any human being than the good news of our salvation, it is essential that all Christians have a firm grasp of what we have been given through Jesus Christ. Thankfully, Greg Gilbert has written a short, but thorough book that explains the gospel and enables the Christian to recognize distortions and clearly share the truth with others. I highly recommend this work to refresh our understanding and appreciation of the good news we have in Christ.

A Scandalous Freedom: The Radical Nature of the Gospel

A Scandalous Freedom: The Radical Nature of the Gospel

By: Steve Brown

The Pastor’s Monthly Book Selection – December, 2018

I wanted to recommend A Scandalous Freedom as a companion to our current sermon series through Galatians. It speaks loudly to those who A Scandalous Freedom: The Radical Nature of the Gospeloften feel overwhelmed with a sense of guilt, trying desperately to relieve their conscience by doing more work to please God. Although the author writes in a very humorous manner, his subject matter is serious. Knowing that personal scruples can turn the Christian life into a prison, the author invites his readers to experience the freedom for which we are redeemed in Christ. For some, liberty from rules and regulations might seem dangerous, but Brown points out that it is only by learning to live free that we can truly enjoy our God and delight in His marvelous grace.  I have found this book helpful in my own life, and I recommend it to anyone wishing to experience the joy of the Lord.
