“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” [Ezekiel 33:6]

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Ephesians 6:12]

[1] World Council of Reformed Churches with Roman Catholics and Lutherans Endorses Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification

A 4 July 2017 Vatican Radio article titled “Catholic and Reformed Churches Mark Ecumenical “Milestone”” reports that on 5 July 2017 in Wittenburg, Germany, the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) signed onto the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, the 1999 Catholic-Lutheran agreement on how Christians might be worthy of salvation in the eyes of God.

WCRC represents 80 million members of Congregational, Presbyterian, Reformed, United, Uniting, and Waldensian churches.

Died He For Me: A Physician’s view of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

As a Christian physician, I have not only marveled at the spiritual ramifications of Christ’s death, but also the physical and physiological aspects. To present this, I have compiled a succinct overview of Jesus’ death from a physical and medical perspective that I hope both lay and medical people can appreciate and understand. — Mark A. Marinella, M.D., F.A.C.P.

Worship Not the Creature: Animal Rights and the Bible – J.Y. Jones

The most forthright and engaging presentation of the Biblical view of animals in print. J. Y. Jones, long an accomplished physician, scholar, writer, outdoorsman, hunter, and man of God, is uniquely qualified to offer his cutting-edge treatment of this controversial topic. Don’t let the down-to-earth, diverting and friendly style fool you. Just as America’s wise Founding Fathers discovered latent tyranny in a penny tea tax, Dr. Jones powerfully exposes the radical political agenda of the contemporary animal rights movement. With careful argument, he reveals the animal rights movement as a potentially significant menace to liberty and even to Christianity itself. Adding Dr. Jones’s able apologetic for the Christian faith in reasoned and transparently personal terms, one should prepare for a rich, compelling, and enjoyable read.

Confrontational Politics: How to Effectively Practice The Politics of Principle – H. L. Richardson

In this era of ever-growing, more distant, unresponsive government—and politicians of both parties who do not walk their talk—retired California state senator H.?L. (Bill) Richardson’s book is a strong tonic.

He warns, however, his words are not for the faint of heart: as Finley Peter Dunne once said, “Politics ain’t beanbag.”

He spells out in a series of lessons how his often hard-pressed conservative minority was able to win victory after victory on issues like the death penalty, gun control, and removing liberal judges. “The central theme of this book is the methodology both sides use. Being ‘right’ is not enough,” he cautions.

Confessing the Faith Study Guide – by Emily Van Dixhoorn

Confessing the Faith Study Guide is a resource that aims to make group study easy. The questions stick closely to the text of Chad Van Dixhoorn’s Confessing the Faith and follow the chapter subheadings that you will find there. Some questions cover essential doctrines; others explore scriptural passages; still others promote personal application. Each chapter ends with a consideration for prayer.

 

Particular Redemption: The End and Design of the Death of Christ – by John Hurrion

In Particular Redemption, taking up these words of Titus 2:14, John Hurrion expounds the doctrine of redemption, focusing attention especially on the end and design, extent and importance of the death of Christ. There is a peculiar importance attached to a man’s last words. That is especially true of John Hurrion. As his life was ebbing away, his mind was flooded with thoughts about his Saviour, Jesus Christ, as he prepared the four addresses found in this book for the press. ‘The delight he took in his subject’, his editor wrote, ‘carried him above his great pain and weakness’, and in dying he confessed: ‘The death of Christ being the fountain of our life, there is nothing more necessary, pleasant, or useful to the Christian, than a right apprehension and remembrance of it.’
