"The Gathering Storm" by R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

posted Sep 11, 2020, 6:07 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Gathering Storm: Secularism, Culture, and the ChurchSecular movements against a Christian worldview are to be expected. What is not is the rapidity with which secularism has made inroads against traditional Christian values in very recent years. In this book, Albert Mohler, president of Southern Seminary, clearly documents the “gathering storm” against the church, human life, marriage, family, gender issues, generational issues, culture and religious liberty. It is a book which clearly presents the dangers without pulling punches, but also presents the hope to be found in Christ. Excellent resource to see where things stand. Highly recommended, as is Mohler’s daily podcast, “The Briefing.”

Disciples Are Made - Not Born: Making Disciples Out of ChristiansIf you would like to be a disciple or are interested in discipling others more effectively, this is a very helpful, classic book. The principles are timeless in showing how to engage with others, how to make discipleship a way of life and have the joy of seeing others come to faith in Christ.       

"Saint Peter's Principles: Leadership for Those Who Know Their Incompetence" by Peter A. Lillback

posted Aug 20, 2020, 10:29 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Saint Peter's Principles: Leadership for Those Who Already Know Their IncompetenceLillback is president of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, and he has given the church, and anyone in leadership, a gift. Using the Apostle Peter to illustrate the many ways in which all leaders demonstrate incompetence, Lillback draws timely lessons covering every aspect of leadership in this tome. While it is long (over 500 pages) it is not redundant nor boring. Drawing on the wisdom of Scripture for principles and his own lengthy experience for illustrations, Lillback provides a thorough and wise guide to virtually every phase of leadership challenges.      

"Living the Cross Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing" by C. J. Mahaney

posted Jul 30, 2020, 1:40 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Living the Cross Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main ThingThis is a fine and readable little book on the meaning and importance of the cross – not only for salvation but for daily living. You’ll understand what went on there better as a result of reading this book.      

"In My Place Condemned He Stood" by J. I. Packer & Mark Dever

posted Jul 17, 2020, 1:04 PM by Fccea Webmaster

In My Place Condemned He Stood: Celebrating the Glory of the AtonementThis is an excellent book written by two articulate theologians explaining in some depth what the atonement is, why it was necessary and what it achieved. If you’ve never thought about this in depth, this is your chance.    

"Why Believe the Bible?" by John MacArthur

posted Jul 3, 2020, 11:34 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Why Believe the Bible?Here is a thorough yet easy-to-read and absorb defense of the credibility of Scripture. Also includes sections on how to study, read, and apply the Word. Excellent introductory book to these topics.    

"The Church in Babylon: Heeding the Call to Be A Light in the Darkness" by Erwin W. Lutzer

posted Jun 18, 2020, 1:56 PM by Fccea Webmaster

The Church in Babylon: Heeding the Call to Be a Light in the DarknessThis is a compelling book in which Lutzer first documents the flip-flop of American society in recent years from tolerant of and even favorably inclined toward Christians, to a position of opposition and even hostility toward evangelicals. This is our new reality. It is no longer a matter of what we do to avoid arriving in “Babylon”; it is now a question of how we live as believers in Babylon. Subjects covered include everything from sexuality and gender issues, hostility at work, the subtle danger of technology, the threat of Islam and many others. Lutzer is wonderful in that he identifies issues clearly and honestly, yet challenges us to see God’s hand in everything and to see opportunity for the gospel. What could be a negative diatribe is, instead, a comforting challenge to faithfulness. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

"Redemption Accomplished and Applied" by John Murray

posted Jun 13, 2020, 10:05 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Redemption Accomplished and AppliedThis is a classic book on the subject of redemption and all contribution doctrines, such as atonement, calling, adoption, faith, repentance, regeneration and others. This is a theological book written in an older style, but easily understood by the average person, thorough, biblical and worth the little extra work it takes. 

"The Discipline of Grace" by Jerry Bridges

posted Jun 5, 2020, 11:10 AM by Fccea Webmaster   [ updated Jun 8, 2020, 10:38 AM ]

The Discipline of Grace: God's Role and Our Role in the Pursuit of HolinessThis is a fine book for differentiating exactly what the subtitle suggests, that is, God’s role and my role in pursuing holiness. Is it just “let go and let God”?  If not, how much is my responsibility? Bridges does an outstanding job of showing how it is all God – and yet, the responsibility to take initiative and practice the disciplines of Godly living is mine – never out of a sense of somehow ingratiating myself to God, but out of a love for God who has already ingratiated Himself to me and me to Him. Bridges strikes a wonderful, biblical balance on this often hard-to-grasp concept.   

"Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions" by Gregory Koukl

posted May 29, 2020, 6:16 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Tactics, 10th Anniversary Edition: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian ConvictionsThis is the best book, by far, that I’ve ever read on how to engage calmly, respectfully, and convincingly with those who question your Christian convictions – whether it’s a family member, neighbor, friend or a more sophisticated opponent. Theologian and radio talk show host, Koukl will show you how, through the use of carefully crafted questions, to draw out the other person, keep control of the conversation, point out the flaws to common objections and at least “plant a stone in someone’s shoe” – give them something to think about after the fact. Good for anyone, including college students because the book is replete with examples. Seeing how Koukl deals with many objections will strength one’s own faith.
