In Second Timothy chapter three, verses one through five, Paul describes the character qualities which will be widely seen in the people of the last days. Although these are not necessarily qualities that are unique to the people of the final generation, as they are common to all generations of fallen human beings, the strong implication is that these evil traits will be dangerously magnified in the final days of history. The men and women of the last days will be more selfish, greedier, more boastful, prouder, more blasphemous, more disobedient, less thankful, more unholy, more unforgiving, more brutal and worse in every conceivable way when compared to previous generations. The complete loss of integrity and good character is what will make the last days so difficult to bear. This book attempts to describe how each of these character traits will impact society and how it is already affecting the world. And how up against the backdrop of this drastic societal decline, we will see the bright and glorious witness of Jesus Christ as it is reflected in the life of His true church.

Get to know God as the generous Father who loves to give good things to his children.
The great I AM, the true and living God, is a God who has the glorious habit of going about doing good to people, especially to His people. He gets glory from us by doing good to us. Many Christians do not know God like this.
God doesn’t want you to remain unacquainted with Him as the God whom the apostle James winsomely describes as ‘the constantly giving God.’ Just the opposite. He longs for you to know Him as the God who is eager to do good things for you, like helping you say ‘No!’ to temptation, answering your big prayers, continuously forgiving your sins, enabling you to conquer fear, and giving you wisdom in decision making, to mention but a few examples.
Do your children exhaust you? Have you found yourself finishing their chores because it’s, well, easier than getting them to do them? If so, this book will give you new energy, and your household new harmony. This book will help your children develop a good work ethic.
Mary Beeke, healthcare professional, educator, and mother first helps you absorb parenting principles and then gives you practical principles to bring clarity to roles in your home. Mary breaks down the principles into manageable chunks so whether you want a reflective study to bring radical change in your life, or just need a shot in the arm, she has you covered.

“Mary Beeke has given Christian parents a book that offers biblical, wise, clear, and practical counsel. This book helps parents inculcate godly work habits that offer satisfaction in meaningful, God-pleasing labor. I recommend it as a unique aid for the discipleship of children.” — Daniel M. Doriani, professor of theology and vice president, Covenant Theological Seminary
“This book is written by a mother who has seen it all. I doubt you’ve ever read a book with such a gold mine of real-life situations and practical suggestions for teaching your children to work. Mary identifies the objectives and troubleshoots the problems of teaching your children to be faithful workers. You will find that she comes as a fellow struggler in the task, sharing her own mistakes and misconceptions. All her practical advice, however, rests on the firm foundation of the theology of work. She builds her advice from the treasury of the Word of God. Like a good Puritan, she delivers the doctrine and then explains the practices of training your children to work.” — Scott Brown and Deborah Brown, Church and Family Life
“And be ye kind to another,” begins Ephesians 4:32. Christians are called to this standard, but how seriously do we take it?
In ‘The Law of Kindness’, Mary Beeke examines the idea of kindness, shows how it is developed, and gives helpful advice for putting it into action, with specific chapters addressed to wives, husbands, parents, teachers, and children. Readers will be struck by their own lack of kindness, captivated by God’s kindness toward us in Jesus Christ, and motivated to cultivate more of this precious virtue.

“Mary Beeke—wife, mother, friend to many—is herself Mrs. Kindness personified. When she writes about this theme, therefore, everyone should listen. Full of wisdom, grace, story, good-humor, and a substantial dose of down-to-earth heavenly realism, The ‘Law of Kindness’ is a unique and remarkable book. Christians and non-Christians will find it marvelously honest, realistic, and practical. Both deeply challenging and wonderfully helpful, this book will surely be a modern classic of its kind.” – Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson
“Mary Beeke has given us an invaluable source of reflection upon a much needed Christian virtue—kindness. In doing so, she has provided us with breathtaking examples of Christian kindness in action, interspersed with practical applications on this Christ-like fruit of the Spirit. This will prove a deservedly popular book, one that readers will return to again and again.” – Dr. Derek Thomas

In this thorough introduction to theological anthropology, Joshua Farris offers an evangelical perspective on the topic. Farris walks the reader through some of the most important issues in traditional approaches to anthropology, such as sexuality, posthumanism, and the image of God. He addresses fundamental questions like, Who am I? and Why do I exist? He also considers the creaturely and divine nature of humans, the body-soul relationship, and the beatific vision.
