This remarkable exposition of Colossians 3:11 considers forty ways that “Christ is all, and in all” for believers—our hope, refuge, and righteousness to name a few. As Philip Henry demonstrates, Christ alone can bring eternal happiness, and without Him nothing else will do. Each chapter provides an edifying meditation, calling us to find our satisfaction in Jesus. So what is your most perplexing problem, and what would you say is the one thing you need most? Read this compelling work on the sufficiency of Christ and be encouraged to answer with Philip Henry, “None but Christ, none but Christ!”
Philip Henry (1631–1696) Father of the famous bible expositor, Matthew Henry.
“An outstandingly beautiful and edifying sample of Christ-centered Puritan piety. The table of contents alone is sufficient to kindle flickering love for Christ into a flame. Here is a full Christ to meet your every spiritual need.” – David P. Murray, professor of Old Testament and practical theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and a pastor in the Free Reformed Church of Grand Rapids, Michigan
Evangelicalism has long been a hotly disputed label, and what counts as evangelical theology is often anyone’s guess. Is evangelicalism a static bounded set defined by clear doctrinal limits, or is it a dynamic centered set without a discernible circumference?
In this inaugural volume in the Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture, Kevin Vanhoozer and Daniel Treier present evangelical theology as an “anchored” set, rooted in the Trinity. In response to increasing evangelical fragmentation, Theology and the Mirror of Scripture offers a clarion call to reconceive evangelical theology theologically by reflecting on the God of the gospel as mirrored in Scripture. Such “mere” evangelical theology will be an exercise in Christian wisdom for the purpose of building up the fellowship of saints.
What would it be like if someone were completely, 100 percent for you?
The loser. The rising star. The drug addict. The good Christian kid gone bad. The undeserving overwhelmed with gratitude. Whoever you are and wherever you’ve been—Jesus is for you.
Not when you clean up your act
or when do the right thing
or when put your life back together.
Jesus is for you—in the midst of now. Whether you woke up amazed by your blessings or shamed by the worst mistake of your life. Jesus is for you and with you, and He’s not going anywhere.
The heartfelt and honest stories in these pages reveal what it means to experience Jesus and discover the real life He promises. With insight from New York Times–bestselling author Judah Smith and backed by Scripture, this book will allow you breathe deeply the profound truth that Jesus is for you.
Our fast-paced lives are filled with distractions, frequently leaving us disillusioned and dissatisfied―with ourselves, with others, and even with God. Spiritual practices that used to sustain us fall short when life circumstances bring us to the limits of our self.
After many years leading an international humanitarian organization, Phileena Heuertz experienced the deconstruction of her identity, worldview, and faith. Centering prayer, a Christian expression of mindfulness, was a crucial remedy for her fragmented condition, offering a more peace-filled and purposeful life.
The hallmarks of contemplative spirituality―solitude, silence, and stillness―have never been more important for our society:
In solitude, we develop the capacity to be present.
In silence, we cultivate the ability to listen.
In stillness, we acquire the skill of self-control.
Contemplative prayer helps us discern the voice of God, uncover our true self, and live a life of meaning and purpose.
Filled with insights and wisdom from her own experience, Phileena introduces us to themes and teachers of contemplative spirituality, as well as several prayer practices, and invites us to greater healing and wholeness by learning to practice faith through prayer.
This is an opportunity to go deeper with God―to experience the Divine and be transformed.
