Only right theology can lead to right worship and right obedience. Every church should strive to believe and confess and live in light of a truly biblical theology and sound doctrine.

She put him firmly in the friendzone, but he wasn’t giving up that easily.
Abby Summerhill had a type—the unattainable player. When a friend set her up with handsome science professor, Colin Fitzgerald, she couldn’t believe her luck. He was tall, dark, and handsome, and made her stomach flip in the most amazing way. But something happened during the date that made her write him off completely, putting him firmly in the friend zone.
Colin might be handsome, smart, and extremely wealthy, but he couldn’t have a conversation with a beautiful woman to save his life. As a mycologist, he spent more time buried in his research than out socializing, and he wasn’t sure he had it in his DNA to make a woman happy. After his father’s failed marriages, Colin didn’t see the point in trying—until Abby.
What began as a friendship turned into something much more. Colin was faced with a decision: remain in self-protective mode or put himself on the line, loving the way that only Christ could love. Sometimes love hurts, but sometimes, it’s the best thing that ever happens to you.
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

One of the most well-known and loved stories of Jesus’s ministry is the encounter with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. Now the creative mind of Diana Wallis Taylor imagines how the Samaritan woman got there in the first place. Marah is just a girl of thirteen when her life is set on a path that will eventually lead her to a life-changing encounter with the Messiah. But before that momentous meeting she must traverse through times of love lost and found, cruel and manipulative men, and gossiping women.
This creative and accurate portrayal of life in the time of Jesus opens a window into a fascinating world. Taylor’s rich descriptions of the landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals mesh easily with the emotional and very personal story of one woman trying to make a life out of what fate seems to throw at her. This exciting and heartwrenching story will fascinate readers and lend new life to a familiar story.

The Mystery of Providence, by John Flavel, presents the Puritan perspective on the God’s providence in practical terms. The book is really a lengthy meditation and application of Psalm 52:7. which says “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” From this text, Flavel derives his “doctrine” (falling in line with typical Puritan sermon-structure): “It is the duty of the saints, especially in times of straits, to reflect upon the performances of Providence for them in all the states and through all the stages of their lives.” This theme is then unfolded in in a three-part treatise, covering (1) The Evidence of Providence, in which Flavel seeks to prove and demonstrate the reality of God’s Providential care over the lives of believers by looking at such things as birth, upbringing, conversion, employment, family affairs, preservation from evil, and sanctification; (2) Meditation on the Providence of God, where the author shows that it is our duty to meditate on Providence, directs in how to do this, and then covers ten advantage to gain from this practice; and (3) Application of the Doctrine of Providence, in which the practical implications of the doctrine are considered and the problems and questions arising in people’s minds are answered. Though not as witty and colorful as Thomas Brooks, as practical as Thomas Manton, as astute as Stephen Charnock, or as experiential as John Owen, Flavel’s book does have many merits. Flavel himself lived a difficult life in which he knew firsthand how to rely on God’s sovereignty in his life, and his work cultivates a greater awareness of God’s mercy, trust in God’s wisdom, and resignation to God’s will day by day.
