In Men of Science, Men of God, Dr. Henry Morris presents 101 biographies and Christian testimonies of scientists who believed the Bible and its account of God’s creation. This collection of biographies disproves the great fallacy that a true scientist cannot simultaneously be a true man of God, believing in God as Creator and Savior and believing the Bible as God’s revelation. In fact the history of science reveals notable Christians were actually the founding fathers of the scientific method and modern scientific disciplines.
Each brief biography reveals the work, discoveries and personalities of celebrated historical figures of science who were also believers in God. Morris summarizes their major scientific accomplishments and details about their Christian faith in one to four short paragraphs. The biographies are arranged chronologically from 1452-1979.
This book is a beacon of light illuminating the grand truth that the Bible and science are certainly compatible. Each biography will strengthen your faith and your admiration of how God uses individuals to accomplish incredible things. One quick glance at the appendix offering a list of key contributions of Bible-believing scientists of the past will fill you with awe and confidence in God. Allow Morris’ book to inspire you to achieve great things that will bring Him honor and glory in a world desperate to see Him.
Use Men of Science, Men of God to inform your own defense of the infallible Word of God. Parents and teachers will find this an excellent teaching resource for science, history, and religious studies.
Who is Jesus? Is He God, as the church has claimed for nearly two thousand years? Or is He just a good man? J. V. Fesko takes a close look at Jesus’s “I am” claims in the gospel of John and guides us to a better understanding of who Jesus is. Jesus, the author says, conducted His ministry clothed in His “coat of Old Testament colors” made, in God’s providence, of the promises, prophecies, themes, and ideas that foretold of the Messiah. Jesus’s claims of deity reveal that He is the great I AM, the name God revealed to Moses at the burning bush. In this book with study questions, suitable for individual or group study, Fesko views the “I am” sayings of Jesus through the perspective of the Old Testament, and we come to see Him in His biblical glory as God in the flesh, who dwelled among men to seek and to save those who were lost.

J. V. Fesko is an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and is also academic dean and associate professor of systematic theology at Westminster Seminary California.
“The four Gospels occupy a unique place in the corpus of Holy Scripture, but the gospel of John takes us into the depths of what that entails. It is the place where we are brought face-to-face with Jesus as the Son of God incarnate. He alone is qualified and authorized to secure the salvation our race so much needs. However, it is possible to read the Gospels and fail to grasp the wonder of who Jesus is and why His earthly life followed the distinctive course it did. For that reason, in this book John Fesko sets out to answer the question, ‘Who is Jesus?’ He does so not merely by allowing Jesus to speak for Himself by His works as well as His words but also by showing how His words and works, as well as His unique person and character, are deeply rooted in the Hebrew Bible. He shows us Jesus as the pinnacle of God’s purpose in salvation and gives us every reason to trust Him with our lives and respond to Him with heartfelt adoration.” — Mark G. Johnston, minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff

In his third book of daily meditations, Sam Storms urges readers to not just enter into God’s Word but to take the next step toward knowing him and his Word better. And the book of Psalms, Storms believes, is a great place to start, because Psalms is so popular and so very relevant to our experiences today.
In More Precious Than Gold, Storms combines years of life experience and his biblical and theological training to bring readers 50 brief, daily meditations that are both stylistically accessible and theologically substantive. Each meditation includes a historical or theological reflection on the psalm in context, a story that brings it alive, and creative tools to support the key idea. Storms also interweaves the words of such luminaries as Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, and John Piper to help readers better understand the concepts that are featured throughout Psalms: worship, prayer, joy, forgiveness, steadfast love, mercy, sin’s consequences, the law of the Lord, and our relationship with our enemies.
Like the Psalter, Storms doesn’t shy away from the tough issues. Instead, he encourages readers to experience through these daily meditations what he and generations of Christians have found to be true: that the whole of the Christian faith is about lifting God higher and magnifying his name-even during difficult times.

The Bible implores us to take a long look at Jesus, forcefully beckoning us to “come and see” through profound questions connected with Jesus’ death and resurrection. These questions drive us to consider not just the events themselves but also their meaning as we take a long look beneath the surface and find more of the never-ending treasures of Christ. In ‘Captivated’, Thabiti Anyabwile invites you to set aside your early lessons on politeness and stare (yes, do stare) into the mystery of the cross and empty tomb.
Table of Contents:
1. Is There No Other Way? (Matthew 26:42)
2. Why Have You Forsaken Me? (Matthew 27:45-46)
3. Where, O Death, Is Your Victory? (1 Corinthians 15:55)
4. Why Do You Look for the Living among the Dead? (Luke 24:5)
5. Do You Know These Things? (Luke 24:17)
Thabiti M. Anyabwile is senior pastor of First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. Pastor Anyabwile and his wife, Kristie, have three children.
“This little book is a wonderful guide for those who would like to ‘stare’ for a while at the meaning of Christ’s suffering and resurrection for His people. It is a great resource both for new believers wanting to learn more about the crucifixion as well as long-time saints who want a fresh perspective on familiar events. Be prepared to understand your Bible better and love Jesus more after reading Captivated!” — Mike McKinley, senior pastor of Sterling Park Baptist Church, Sterling, Virginia, and author of Passion: How Christ’s Final Day Changes Your Every Day
Are We an Accident…or Not?
The question of cosmic origins and our place in the grand scheme of things has been debated for millennia. Why do we exist? Why does anything exist at all?
Today’s popular narrative, based on advancements in science, is that it all happened by natural, random processes. Melissa Cain Travis points to powerful evidence that the opposite is true—that cosmology, astronomy, biochemistry, and other disciplines strongly support what she calls “The Maker Thesis,” which explains the origin, rationality, and intricacy of nature and the human mind’s capacity to comprehend it.
Our universe is made up of numerous complex systems of order that both interact and coexist with each other as if in a carefully choreographed dance. Follow along on a fascinating journey about how the structure of nature and the mind of man resonate in ways that point to a Maker who fully intended the astounding discoveries being made in the natural sciences today.
