Here are clear truths from Scripture: central, humbling, saving, comforting, God-glorifying. Get Anchored.
/ / /
Salvation is anchored in grace, rooted in God’s favor toward us in his Son, the Lord Christ. This book is a celebration of these exceeding riches of God’s grace toward sinners in Christ Jesus.
These are realities with which Christians need to be thoroughly acquainted. They are paths to walk so that we do not miss our way to heaven, nor fail to honor the Lord God along the way. They are central truths, humbling truths, saving truths, and comforting truths. Not least, they are God-glorifying truths, for the great end of our salvation is the praise of the glory of God’s grace. When God saves sinners, it reveals his wisdom and power, his love and compassion, his justice and truth, as nothing else. In Christ crucified, we are given insights into the gracious heart of God Almighty that can be found nowhere else. There his majesty, might, and mercy are on display, and there we find life everlasting.
When our faith is anchored in this grace, holiness and happiness take root in our hearts. Here sinners are liberated from condemnation, dread, and wrath. Here Christians are relieved of fear, confusion, and pride. Here we may find peace, certainty, purpose, joy, and hope.
With this in mind, Anchored in Grace provides a brief survey of the grace of God in Christ revealed in the Scriptures, tracing the arc of his saving dealings with lost men and women. It is by no means exhaustive, but rather sets out some of the fixed points in which humble faith can rest so as to exalt and enjoy God in all his saving kindnesses in his Son.
We live in a time of deep uncertainty. And yet, the Bible promises we were created to enjoy lives of freedom, even in times when the world around us seems filled with darkness. We were created to be overcomers, conquering the greatest obstacles in our lives.
In his new book, Overcomer, beloved teacher David Jeremiah offers his insights on one of the most quoted but least understood passages of the Bible: the apostle Paul’s admonition to the Ephesians to take up the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). With his signature depth, wisdom, and compassion, Dr. Jeremiah explores the powerful relevance of spiritual armor as a critical tool each day as we confront the specific challenges in our lives and of our time.
If you’ve had enough of living in defeat, it is time to find renewed strength and claim the promises of God’s Word to overcome life’s greatest threats.

Culture is something we build, something we do with creation; it is the outward expression of a people’s worship, in terms of which they cultivate their society, including its law, education, arts and customs and much more besides. Whether we realize it or not, we all participate daily in culture-building of one form or another. The gospel of the kingdom is the good news that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, and that he is at work to redeem this fallen world, remaking it in accordance with his good purposes. To speak of gospel culture, then, is to speak of a total meaning for the cosmos, a design plan. The gospel has something to say about the way we go about all our cultural activities. God’s Word is a total structuration of life and thought. If we would see Jesus Christ honoured and worshipped, if we would see our Lord’s will done on earth as it is in heaven, then we must faithfully consider the scriptural view of the gospel and its implications for culture.
“Dr. Joseph Boot…is a rigorous thinker, uncompromisingly committed to biblical truth and unafraid to articulate it in the boldest way. He is a cultural theologian
of the highest order.”—P. Andrew Sandlin, Founder and President, Center for
Cultural Leadership, Coulterville, California, U.S.A.
How should we think about Christian apologetics in a society where people are encouraged to discover, determine and live their own truth?
In this short book, Joe Boot explains that Christ-centred gospel witness is about getting to the heart of a person, for the root of unbelief is a heart condition, not a lack of evidence or convincing arguments. Dr. Boot considers some of the prevailing worldviews in the West today, demonstrating that their foundational problem is a refusal to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and King. As we engage in witnessing to the gospel of the Kingdom, the heart and its attachment to cherished lies must be taken into account.
Gospel Witness is part of the Cornerstones series of short books for Christians wishing to strengthen their understanding of the scope and implications of the gospel in the twenty-first century.
A tornado has destroyed a small Minnesota community and among the missing are not only a group of students but PEAK Rescue team leader Chet King. Ty Remington will stop at nothing to rescue his mentor, not even when the girl he loved–and lost–walks back into his life. But Brette needs his help more than he knows, despite her stubborn determination to push him away. And when he gets a second chance, loving her just might cost him more than he can imagine.
A blogger for Vortex Storm Chasers, Brette Arnold didn’t expect her adventures to land her in the same place as Ty, the guy who she walked–no, ran–from over a year ago. She had her reasons–good ones. The kind that tell her that falling for him again would only lead to heartache. But Ty isn’t the kind of man to give up–not on the missing students, or on her.
Life and love hang in the balance in Susan May Warren’s breathless story of holding on to hope during a deadly summer of storms.
