What is grace, and how do we get it? Many today still struggle with understanding how God actually shows grace towards His people. In this booklet, Sean Lucas and the writers at Place for Truth attempt to set the record straight, taking us first to the source of our grace: Jesus Himself.
God provides rest for His people, yet the way we rest on Sunday remains a divisive issue in the Church. How can we honor the biblical commandment while upholding liberty of conscience? To answer that question, pastor Ken Golden turns to the Bible itself, exploring what God says—and what He does not say—about entering His rest.
Throughout the ages, God-fearing men have bravely spoken-out against doctrinal and moral error from within the Church. But simply protesting what is wrong and what you don’t believe is not enough—we need to know what we do believe and why we believe it. In this volume, Danny Hyde delves into what made Reformed Protestants distinct, and why we should still cherish those distinctives.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19). That is Jesus’ command for His followers, but it can be a terrifying task. Join Jeffrey Stivason, David Calhoun, and others as they discuss biblical, Reformed evangelism from years past and for today.
As Christians, we are called to give a defense for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15). But how? Scott Oliphint, Jonathan Master, James Boice, and others discuss what it means to make a biblical, God-honoring defense of our faith.
Will you be "left behind?” Evangelical Christianity knows this question well. It has been inundated with the pre-tribulational, pre-millennial, secret rapture of the church for the last century. In response, the Alliance is pleased to offer Caught Up: 1 Thessalonians 4 and the Truth About the Rapture by Daniel R. Hyde, editor at MeetthePuritans.org.
The Gospel is primarily about God. Part of the glory of the New Testament is that it explains the Gospel to us in terms of the glorious work of the three persons of the Trinity. Yet many can miss the rich Trinitarian backdrop of the New Testament because they are not looking for it. Knowing the Trinity shows that knowing God is knowing Him as Triune and that to know Him is to love Him.
For most Christians, the Trinity is a carefully defined doctrine that they must believe; yet it has little practical significance. In Communion with God, John Owen presents the doctrine of the Trinity as the most intensely practical and personal doctrine in Scripture. This is a study guide for John Owen's Communion with God. There is a summary and discussion questions for each chapter.
The Shepherd Who Would be King chronicles the career of David, one of the best-known figures in the Bible, from his humble origins as a shepherd boy to his slaying of the giant Goliath, to his triumphant crowning success as king of Israel.

If you want to really understand something, one of the best things you can do is study its origin, or beginning. This is true of nations. This is true of the church. This book looks at the origins of the church.
From a very early time, psalms were used both in private worship and public gatherings. Mary's Magnificat in Luke 1 contains numerous allusions to the Psalms, as does Zechariah's song in the same chapter. Most scholars think the "hymn" sung by Jesus and the disciples to conclude the Last Supper was the Hallel, Psalms 113-118, regularly sung by Jews at Passover.
The American Declaration of Independence was not the first declaration of independence. The first declaration of independence was drawn up in the heart of Adam in the Garden of Eden and is the cause of all the ills which have come to the human race since that time.
Only in Christ can we get the fruit that Adam reached for and did not truly get.

The original classic is back in this new e-book edition edited by Dr. J. Ligon Duncan, III. Matthew Henry's book is a spiritual classic that will richly repay the reader with a deepened and more Biblical prayer life.
This is a booklet that deals helpfully and briefly with key Biblical texts related to the cessation of the so-called "extraordinary" spiritual gifts found in the New Testament. Written by one of the world's leading New Testament scholars, this study will benefit all who desire a clear answer to the question of the cessation of the extraordinary gifts.
The message of the Gospel of Mark is best summarized in chapter ten, "For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many" (v. 45, ESV). It is this theme that not only inspires the title of Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse's commentary on Mark, but serves as the focal point around which he exegetes and expounds the saving message of Christ.
In this work, Donald Barnhouse leads us through the assurance and foundation of our holiness. He insightfully says “If the Word of God contained your name, you would always have the fear that the message was addressed to someone else of the same name.” He reminds us that “the work of salvation has been done in our hearts and that it has been done forever.”
The classic book on prayer by Matthew Henry is now available for the first time for e-readers! This volume will help you, perhaps as never before, pray the Bible. NOTE: This is the ESV Corporate version of the book.

The Bible is sufficient... for what? Jonathan Master and company explain this idea and why it is vital for the Church today. The bottom line: “We all need to be constantly reminded that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness in His Word.”
Theolgy matters. Disagreements exist within the Reformed confessional tradition, and we know that debates can often descend into name-calling and straw man arguments. This booklet contains two brief summaries - one by a pastor of paedo-baptist persuasion, one by a Baptist pastor - on a subject that matters. They've both presented their own arguments clearly and fairly.
This short but informative book gives an answer to the intriguing question of what Early Church members sang by looking at different psalms and hymns that have been passed down through the life of the church.
