The history of the Christian church is a fascinating story.
Since the ascension of Jesus and the birth of the church at Pentecost, the followers of Christ have experienced persecution and martyrdom, established orthodoxy and orthopraxy, endured internal division and social upheaval, and sought to proclaim the good news “to the end of the earth.” How can we possibly begin to grasp the complexity of the church’s story?
In this brief volume, historian Jennifer Woodruff Tait provides a primer using seven sentences to introduce readers to the sweeping scope of church history.

The two seventeenth-century essays translated and offered in this book were originally designed to help people of the Dutch Further Reformation derive the greatest benefit from celebrating the Lord’s Supper. Guilelmus Saldenus’s The Efficacy of the Lord’s Supper concentrates on the joy received in celebrating the sacrament and the sanctified living that it ought to generate. Wilhelmus à Brakel’s Edifying Discourses instructs believers in preparing their hearts for the celebration, participating in the Supper responsibly, and following up the meal in a spiritually beneficial manner. These contributions are but two examples of a much larger genre of edifying Lord’s Supper literature that developed in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century.
‘Classics of Reformed Spirituality Series’ offers fresh translations of key writings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, making them accessible to the twenty-first century church. These writings from the “Further Reformation” in the Netherlands offer a balance of doctrine and piety, a mingling of theology and life that has seldom been equaled in the history of Christianity. Each book in this series will provide invaluable insights into a vibrant part of the Christian heritage.

What Promises Can You Believe?In The Promises of God, Dr. R. C. Sproul shows how God—the one true Promise Keeper—always keeps His promises. Drawing from his expansive theological background, Dr. Sproul addresses questions such as these:· How do we know that God will fulfill His promises to us?· What can we learn about God’s faithfulness as we wait for His promises to be fulfilled?· What was the agreement God the Father had with Jesus before the beginning of the world?· What does God’s covenant with Adam mean for us today?· What common covenant do atheists and other non-Christians participate in with God?· What does God’s covenant have to do with His forgiveness of our sins today?· Why did Jesus have to die to complete God’s covenant with us? God’s promises throughout history are the foundation for your relationship with Him. Here you will see how and why He keeps His promises to you, from now through eternity.
In today’s uncertain world, storms will arise that test your faith in a loving heavenly Father. At times, the winds and waves of the world’s deceptions will roll in and seek to erode your confidence in God. Without a firm foundation in the truth of God’s Word, you may be tempted to go off course and accept less than God’s best for you. However, when you hear Jesus’ words, receive them, and put them into practice, you will construct a life the torrents cannot shake, “because it was well built” (Luke 6:48).
The Purple Book will help you understand foundational truths that God wants you to hear on topics such as sin, salvation, spiritual gifts, prayer, worship, generosity, and evangelism. It will show you how the Bible is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). It will help you understand that the faith you hold has true power to change lives and transform nations. It will give you a solid foundation the enemy cannot dismantle—and a heart shaped by knowledge of God’s Word.
This brief introduction to Luther’s theology connects Luther with the evangelical tradition. Paul Hinlicky, one of today’s leading Lutheran theologians, explores six key areas of doctrine for which Luther is regarded as an authority, correcting common misconceptions of his thought in light of the whole of his theology. This work regrounds evangelical mission in a new evangelism and catechesis on the basis of Luther’s doctrine of the atonement as “joyful exchange.” In addition to its classroom utility, it will be of interest to evangelical pastors and church leaders.
