"God Is the Gospel" by John Piper

posted Mar 1, 2019, 12:35 PM by Fccea Webmaster   [ updated Mar 1, 2019, 12:38 PM ]

God Is the Gospel Publisher: Crossway BooksThe thesis of this book is that salvation most fully consists not of God's blessings -- even the blessing of eternal life -- but of God Himself.  In scripture after scripture, Piper shows that it is God Himself who is the object of salvation -- not merely His blessings.  This book will help you develop a great appreciation for and desire for God Himself.

"The Intolerance of Tolerance" by D. A. Carson

posted Feb 16, 2019, 2:55 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Intolerance of ToleranceThis book argues and demonstrates that “tolerance” has been subtly redefined in our culture, now requiring not just acceptance of someone else’s debatable idea – but belief in the relative truth of that idea, even if it is diametrically opposed to what one believes. Thus, whether we actually believe it or not, we are asked to believe that 5-year-olds are sufficiently mature to determine their gender identity. To disagree is to be “intolerant.” But the process does not work the other way. Those insisting on morally questionable positions are not viewed as intolerant for failing to accept moral absolutes. Carson rightly identifies that our society has experienced an abdication of truth claims in favor of moral relativism with potentially devastating effects.

Your Eternal Reward: Triumph and Tears at the Judgment Seat of ChristIf you ever wondered what comes next for the believer after we leave this life, this book will be a great help. The reward of believers is little touched upon, so this is a welcome treatment of what should be greatly motivating to all of us. Lutzer has done us all a great favor by organizing the various references in Scripture to his important subject. 

"John Knox: Fearless Faith" by Steven J. Lawson

posted Nov 26, 2018, 3:27 PM by Fccea Webmaster

John Knox: Fearless FaithThis is an excellent, small, readable book that captures both the major facts and spirit of the great Scottish Reformer, John Knox. His life was driven by a driving faith in a great God, and it inspires that same faith in all of us. Knox’s fearless faithfulness in the face of constant opposition presents all of us with a challenge in the face of so much less to fear.

God's Devil: The Incredible Story of How Satan's Rebellion Serves God's PurposesThis fine book shows, from the Bible, how Satan’s bid for independence actually resulted in his becoming more than ever the servant of God – not willingly, but comprehensively. This will help you understand the Devil’s past, his purposes, his power and the limitations of that power, and his future – all in the context of God’s overriding authority. 

"The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Westernn Civilization" by Vishal Mangalwadi

posted Nov 2, 2018, 12:12 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western CivilizationThis is a fascinating book by a man born in India, educated in the West and now living again in India showing how the advances of Western Civilization in virtually every area of endeavor (philosophy, literature, science, technology, medicine, etc.) can be traced directly to the Bible. He demonstrates that the East did not lack for intelligence or opportunity, but the biblical worldview is responsible for the world we cherish. Lengthy, but fascinating study.
