Book Excerpt :

We are all strangers in a strange land, longing for home, but not quite knowing what or where home is. We glimpse it sometimes in our dreams, or as we turn a corner, and suddenly there is a strange, sweet familiarity that vanishes almost as soon as it comes… –Madeleine L’Engle, from The Rock That Is Higher Story captures our hearts and feeds our imaginations. It reminds us who we are and where we came from. Story gives meaning and direction to our lives as we learn to see it as an affirmation of God’s love and truth–an acknowledgment of our longing for a rock in the midst of life’s wilderness. Drawing upon her own experiences, well-known tales in literature, and selected narratives from Scripture, Madeleine L’Engle gently leads the way into the glorious world of story in The Rock That Is Higher. Here she acknowledges universal human longings and considers how literature, Scripture, personal stories, and life experiences all point us toward our true home.

Book Short Summary:

First Love Devotions is written from the authors rich experience of over fifty years as a pastor and teacher. One of the dangers a pastor faces is becoming mechanical and professional and losing the first love that motivated him to devote his life as a servant of God. The best safeguard against that is maintaining a loving, intimate daily fellowship with Jesus as you seek his guidance in understanding the scripture. If you find your love for Jesus waning, do a thorough job of repentance as you renew and cultivate this relationship. Each first-love devotion treats a passage of scripture and gives insight based on prayerful reflection as it relates to personal experience. In addition to personal spiritual benefits, the Christian worker will find a wealth of topics, sermon prompts, and illustrative materials that may be shared with others.

Book Short Summary:

Just beneath the surface of many of the best known, and some less well-known, verses of sacred Scripture, there lies a hidden treasure that many casual Bible readers may never see. Quite often just a short, prayerful pause to reflect upon the written word will allow God the Holy Spirit to open our minds to deeper revelations as to the importance of a specific verse or series of verses. New ways of applying that Scripture to our lives begin to become clear to us. For that reason, pastor and author Sam Owens invites readers to grab their spiritual shovels and dig a little deeper into the treasure that is Gods Holy Word!

Letters to My Son

Book Short Summary:

After forty years of theological, historical, and scriptural study, Vivienne E. Perkins, PhD, came to a unique conclusion: that man’s entry into the modern and postmodern ages—facilitated by the superficial thought of the Enlightenment philosophes—undermined the traditional Christian understanding of human sin in relation to the God who created and sustains the universe. This path had been blazed before her by the great Russian philosopher, Lev Shestov, and by the French Reformed Christian author of forty books on technology (as well as the Gospel), Jacques Ellul. Believing that the evil effects of Enlightenment thinking pose an unrecognized obstacle to her contemporaries’ realizing the absolute necessity of a scriptural understanding of Christ’s role in saving man from his overwhelming social and personal sin—which is now destroying the only planet upon which man can build a future—Dr. Perkins is determined to live her faith by adopting Daniel as her son and laying out a clear explanation of Western civilization’s wrong turns during the last 250 years. Modern man, this author believes, is so absorbed in worshiping his supposed technological “progress” that he does not yet see what Shestov, Mumford, Lyotard, Ellul, and other serious thinkers have seen—that we misunderstand the real essence of progress and that the unrestrained technological “progress” we admire so much cannot give us a human future on a healthy planet. Climate catastrophe looms, and we are now facing a situation in which to repent (to change) is our only option.

As you speak aloud the text, you will learn the benefits of confessing the Truth, your faith will grow and you will be able to trust God more. Lord, there are times when life does not seem to be fair, but You are good. There are times when it is difficult to lift up my head to You, but You are good. There are times when it is hard to say, "I love You," but You are good. Lord, when I am struggling and in despair, help me, for You are good. Paul F Taylor

The Tabernacle of David

Book Short Summary:

What, exactly, does the tabernacle of David represent? In the new covenant there is only one mediator between God and man: this is the Lord Jesus Christ the living Word of God, and he is presently seated upon a heavenly throne, high above all things (Psalm 138:2). The ark of the covenant is a representation of Jesus Christ and of how our reconciliation with God the Father is made possible. The tabernacle of David depicts the heavenly realm touching the earth and is a living, prophetic parable of how we may come into a direct and personal relationship with God. Through Jesus Christ and without intermediary clergy or religious, legalistic ritual, we may become registered as citizens of heaven (Hebrews 12:18-24). The once-and-for-all blood sacrifice at Calvary was required in order to put the new covenant into effect. However, the fullness of what is represented by the tabernacle of David (with the ark as its sole piece of furniture) will be restored at the second coming. In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen and close up its breeches; and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old… (Amos 9:11–12, Acts 15:16) When God decided to cut off the corrupt house of Eli he said: And I will raise me up a faithful priest that shall do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind, and I will build him a sure house, and he shall walk before my anointed [Heb. Messiah] for ever (1 Samuel 2:35). The faithful priest for whom God would build a sure house could not have been Samuel. The fact that he shall walk before God’s anointed (Messiah) forever, means that this does not refer directly to Jesus Christ. The only “sure house” that can be seen that fits this bill is the house of David (1 Samuel 17), which continued in God’s favor until the birth of Jesus Christ. And in Christ, the royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) of the order of Melchisedec (Psalm 110:4) continues forever — this even includes us if we are in Christ (Revelation 1:6). And in mercy shall the throne be established and he shall sit on it in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking judgment and hastening righteousness. (Isaiah 16:5) What is the prophetic numerology found in the Psalms? Anyone who knows the author or has read one of his previous books knows that, in addition to emphasizing a personal relationship with God the Father, he is focused on the Day of the Lord with a deep concern that Christians regard End Times prophecy with utmost concern and soberness. It is within this context that he directs the reader's attention to the prophetic numbers within the Psalms that, once decoded according to their trajectory through the Scriptures, unlock the stunning messianic narrative that will soon take place here on the earth. Amidst ever-increasing feelings of social isolation and the realities of political division and unrest, as well as the impending and potentially disastrous outcomes of man-made crises facing the earth, people are looking for answers to their fears and inner longing to feel secure, connected, and satisfied in their daily lives. While many attempt to control things politically, others are looking for answers through esoteric means such as prophecies, numerology, tarot cards, and even witchcraft. Although David obviously didn’t face the difficulties unique to our time, he definitely felt socially isolated, dwelled in political unrest, and faced many possibilities for disaster. His answer was to ask God to protect him and direct his every footstep, which ultimately met his every need and eventually led him to dwell in peace and security, to a ripe old age.

Book Short Summary:

Are we weak and heavy laden, Cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge— Take it to the Lord in prayer. While playing the piano in churches for decades, Patty Ellis had become used to focusing on the music score, not the lyrics. Little did she know that years later, those sacred lines, like seeds destined to produce their bounty in an unknown future, would restore her soul, reawaken her faith, and leave her with a new measure of hope, joy and peace long missing from her life. In her newest book, Patty shares the miraculous, though completely unexpected, discovery she made while revisiting the poignant words of the revered hymns she had performed so many times throughout her life. While transporting others on a journey of renewal, Patty pairs the lyrics of classic hymns with Bible verses to uplift and inspire believers. Within these gems that have been all but erased from Christian worship lies timeless wisdom with the power to resurrect and reaffirm faith, hope, and truth. Let My Soul Look Up is a devotional that shares the profound inspiration found in the ageless wisdom of our beloved hymns.

"Voltaire called him the “man who never dies and knows everything.” The Count Saint Germain turned base metals into gold, removed the flaws from diamonds and discovered the elixir of youth. In the eighteenth century, this “Wonderman of Europe” was the confidant of kings and a friend to the poor. Today the master Saint Germain shows that miracles are nothing more than the natural outgrowth of the practice of spiritual alchemy. In this greatest of all self-help books, he describes the principles of alchemy and how you can use them in your own life to bring about spiritual, mental, emotional and physical transformation."

Book Short Summary:

Every day, there are treasures to be discovered by anyone who will honestly come to hear the voice of the Savior in his Word. The Lord Jesus indicates that there is an added blessing for those who will write down the insights he gives by his instruction: Every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old (Matthew 13:52). The poems in this book are the result of going to the Bible each day with an expectation that God has something very valuable to say. That expectation has NEVER been disappointed. Our risen Lord said, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with Me (Revelation 3:20). This intimate, two-way communion with God is offered to all those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:12) and thereby have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:12). My prayer is that God may use this book for his glory, for the encouragement of his own children, and for the persuasion of those who may yet be awakened to their need of our Savior. Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the post of My doors (Proverbs 8:34). Heaven is waiting. Dont miss it for the world.

Book Short Summary:

Change! The word evokes feelings of trepidation and fear in the hearts of many. And the reason isn't far-fetched: change always alters and upends everything in its path. While everyone knows that change changes things, many don't know that change itself is governed by just a few unchanging principles. This book takes the mystery—and the fear and trepidation—out of change by unveiling those principles. Crucially also, this book explains the practice of change—revealing the small subset of actions leaders have to take to successfully implement change. Implementing change is where the proverbial rubber meets the road; it's the part of the change process that gives us the most jitters because of the plethora of unexpected events—crises, failures, loss of critical assets, etc.—that often pop up. This book includes a section that is novel in concept: one that links crises and other unexpected events—the pitfalls and progeny of change—to change itself. By showing leaders how to manage these unexpected events, this book addresses the fear that often prevents people from changing. If you want to make the transition from being always at the mercy of change to being in the driver's seat of change, this book is for you!

Book Short Summary:

From the song of Moses on the shore of the Red Sea, to the hymn at the close of our Lord’s first communion, the singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs is an essential part of worship for God’s people. In the wisdom of the Glorious Creator, God created man in his image, which included a voice – a uniquely human instrument capable of producing melody. And so, our Lord delights in worship with the voice of praise. From the psalms composed by David on the grassy hillsides of Bethlehem, to the thunderous chorus of “Holy! Holy! Holy!” offered by the seraphim in the throne room of heaven, expressions of singing in worship are evident. And notably, Zephaniah declared the Lord rejoices in singing Himself: “The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17). Truly, God’s people rejoice in songs of praise through the ages. By singing Psalms in the early church, in quiet whispers of praise in dens and caves of the earth during persecution, singing praises to our Lord endures. In recent centuries, times of revival and despair alike have sown seeds of creativity, and hymns of praise blossomed and bloomed. As such, visionary men like Elder Lee Hanks, saw fit to collect hymns, true to God’s word in sentiment, and place them in hymnbook form to use in worship. To commemorate the 100th year of the Old School Hymnal, with hearts set on the glory of God, and enveloped by our rich history of worship in song, we the members of the newly restructured, non-profit Old School Hymnal Foundation Board, humbly present to you the Centennial Edition. In 1920, the founding members of the 1st edition presented a compilation of beloved hymns. In updating the hymnal, we prayerfully labored to honor their focus, endeavoring to maintain treasured, long-standing hymns, while also offering new compositions. We believe the Lord blessed us to remain true to scripture and honor Him with the words and melodies selected. In following the footsteps of our forefathers in hymnody, we echo the words of Elders Monsees and Pittman, in the preface to the 3rd edition, as we tried to include “the best old songs, and some of the new good ones...” In recent years, the Holy Spirit has blessed the creation of new hymns, born from the souls of redeemed children of God, moved and affected by the influence of grace. In honoring the spirit of past editions, and striving to obey the unction of the Holy Spirit, we are united in the desire to share some new songs. Having begun in the fall of 2019, and concluded in the midst of uncertain times, we believe a Providential blessing is in the timing of this effort. As unprecedented upheaval and abject fear prevails, we are compelled to present a point of light to push back against the darkness. While angry, dispirited voices reach a fever pitch, as the vitriolic squawk of malicious accusations command our attention, amidst the din of hard speeches and great swelling words, our prayer is that a different sound rises above the fray. In Christian homes, among congregations of Spirit-led worship, and from hearts of weary sinners, may songs of praise and voices of worship rise to adorn and adore the worthy name of Jesus. Accepting full responsibility for omissions, oversights and mistakes, and pleading for the mercy and blessing of God, we give to you this Centennial Edition, trusting the voice of praise will lift up to glorify our resurrected, reigning and returning Savior.

Book Short Summary:

This book is a daily devotional book in which you will examine one name of God each day of the year and then pray that name throughout the day. You will also see the definitions of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek words that make up these names. The names all come from the King James Version Bible as do the many quotations that are included to show the proper context in which the name is used. I have attempted to locate every name of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit from Genesis through Revelation. So join me on a one year journey through the Bible. I hope that your journey will be as insightful for you as it was for me.

Book Short Summary:

Jesus: His Story in Stone is a reflection on still-existing stone objects that Jesus would have known, seen, or even touched. Each of the seventy short chapters is accompanied by a photograph taken on location in Israel. Arranged chronologically, the one-page meditations compose a portrait of Christ as seen through the significant stones in His life, from the cave where He was born to the rock of Calvary. While packed with historical and archaeological detail, the book’s main thrust is devotional, leading the reader both spiritually and physically closer to Jesus.

You can begin to bring glory to God as He created you to do. Heavenly Father, for everyone who picks this book up and reads it, will You refresh their very souls. For those who walk in darkness, please open their eyes that they may see the light of Your great love and deliver them from the dominion of darkness. Heavenly Father please lead each of them to that place where the river will flow into them and flow out of them. That each of them will become refreshers of the souls of others. In the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.

Book Short Summary:

Startled by the unexpected diagnosis of a rare and often-terminal cancer, JoAnn A. Post chronicles the course of her treatment in Songs in My Head, a journal written both for her own sake, and for friends, family, and colleagues. Each of her twelve chemotherapy treatments is presented as a verse of the songs that hummed in her heart during and at the close of treatment. Inspiration and encouragement come through simple events like the return of a lost dog ("Chasing Maggie") and complicated events like allergic reactions to chemotherapy ("A False Summit"). The journal closes with an ancient Jewish ritual of thanksgiving, the Birkat HaGomel, which places the author's suffering in the context of the suffering and healing of God's people through the centuries. While writing from the perspective of faith, the author neither offers easy solutions, nor glosses over the difficult questions posed by illness and disability. During a difficult time she writes with hope, humor, and honesty. This journal is written for those living with cancer, and for those who love and care for them.

Book Short Summary:

Evening by Evening Charles H. Spurgeon’s devotionals Morning by Morning and Evening by Evening have inspired, encouraged, and challenged Christians for generations. Spurgeon, with his masterful hand, carefully selected his text from throughout the Bible and covered a broad range of topics, in order to present a well-balanced and fruitful daily devotional for readers both young and old. Now updated into more-modern English for today’s readers, and again separated into two volumes as originally published, with morning devotionals in one volume and evening devotionals in the second. We chose a 11-point font for the sake of legibility, and formatted the devotionals so each fits on a single page. January 1 (Sample Devotional) We will rejoice in you and be glad. (Song of Solomon 1:4) We will rejoice in you and be glad. We will not open the gates of the year with the notes of a mournful song, but with the sweet strains of the harp of joy and the high-sounding cymbals of gladness. O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation (Psalm 95:1). We, the called and faithful and chosen, will drive away our griefs and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God. Let others lament over their troubles, while we who have the sweetening tree to cast into Marah’s bitter water (Exodus 15:23-25) will magnify the Lord with joy! Eternal Spirit, our powerful Comforter – we who are the temples in which You dwell will never stop adoring and blessing the name of Jesus. We will rejoice, for we are resolved to do so. Jesus must have the crown of our heart’s delight. We will not dishonor our Bridegroom by mourning in His presence. We are ordained to be the singers of the skies. Let us rehearse our everlasting anthem before we sing it in the halls of the New Jerusalem. We will be glad and rejoice. Glad and rejoice are two words with one sense: double joy, blessedness upon blessedness. Does there need to be any limit to our rejoicing in the Lord even now? Do not men and women of grace find their Lord to be nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon even now (Song of Solomon 4:14)? And what better fragrance could they have in heaven itself? We will be glad and rejoice in You. That last word – You, Jesus – is the delicacy in the dish, the kernel of the nut, and the soul of the text. What joys are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite delight have their source and every drop of their fullness in Him! Since, O sweet Lord Jesus, You are the present portion of Your people, favor us this year with such a sense of Your preciousness that from its first day to its last we may be glad and rejoice in You. Let your January open with joy in the Lord, and close your December with gladness in Jesus.
