“You have likely read the parables of Christ before, perhaps many times. But have they read you?” With this thought-provoking question, author Gerald Bilkes introduces readers to the concept of interpreting the Scriptures experimentally as he takes a heart-searching look at Christ’s parables.
In this spiritually rewarding Bible study, the author shows students of Scripture how to read the parables in a way that takes into account the truth that Scripture searches us as we subject ourselves to it. When we recognize this, we can expect Scripture to transform us.
An ideal tool for personal or group Bible study, with questions following each lesson, ‘Glory Veiled and Unveiled’ considers the contexts and main messages of twenty-five parables and puts our hearts under the “searchlight” of Scripture, guiding us into the knowledge of Christ, our gracious and glorious king.

“We have come to expect good things from Dr. Bilkes, and in Glory Veiled and Unveiled we are not disappointed. He has given us a marvelous exposition of the parables, revealing astute awareness of the subtleties of the genre and a keen eye for their current application. With pointed questions, each chapter is designed for use in personal and corporate Bible study. Individuals and churches will profit enormously from this book.” — Derek W. H. Thomas, Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

The gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are filled with well-known accounts of the miracles Christ performed. Christians love to reflect on Christ’s healing of the Gadarene demoniac, His raising to life Jairus’s daughter, and His bountifully providing food for five thousand hungry listeners. But author Gerald M. Bilkes doesn’t want us to study these miracles just because they are loved or well known. He wants us to value them for what they teach us about Christ. He writes, “When we study the miracles, we should never lose sight of the glorious and magnificent Christ who performed them. He still performs miracles in hearts and lives. . . . These things should astound us no less than the miracles He did when He was on earth.” This heart-warming, experiential look at twenty-two of Christ’s miracles, with questions following each chapter, is an excellent tool for personal or group Bible study and will lead you to the cross, the empty tomb, and the God who purposed and performed these important events of Scripture.

Endorsement:
“The Gospels are full of accounts of Jesus’ miracles. Why did Jesus do them? What do they have to say to us today? Gerald M. Bilkes will help you better appreciate the miracles for what they are— historical pointers to the glorious person and work of Jesus Christ. Mercy Revealed is a biblical, practical, and accessible survey of one of the leading features of our Lord’s earthly ministry. May this book help you better understand and love the Savior.” — Guy Prentiss Waters, James M. Baird, Jr. Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

The epistle of James opens with a command to count it all joy when we face life’s trials. But how can we speak of joy when difficulties bring so much sadness? In Reservoirs of Strength, Gerald M. Bilkes surveys James’s letter and directs us to eight quiet streams that can strengthen us when things get hard: the truth of God, the lordship of Christ, the friendship of God, the wisdom of God, the grace of God, the will of God, the justice of God, and the ear of God. If the weight of the world has worn you down, come study the book of James and find an inspired map to reservoirs of strength in testing times.

Author Gerald Bilkes explains that in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, we have two first-person accounts, or memoirs, of Israel’s return from exile to the Promised Land. In this winsome Bible study, with questions for individual or group reflection at the end of each chapter, the author introduces readers to the lesser-known Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah and helps us understand that these are not the records of historic feats but rather the confessions of a humble prodigal on a profoundly spiritual journey home. With pastoral warmth, Bilkes demonstrates these biblical memoirs’ relevance for us today as they challenge us to consider whether we are in the far country or, by grace, on our way back home to God.
