Truth in a Culture of Doubt takes readers on a journey to explain topics such as the Bible’s origins, the copying of the Bible, alleged contradictions in Scripture, and the relationship between God and evil. Written for all serious students of Scripture, this book will enable you to know how to respond to a wide variety of critical arguments raised against the reliability of Scripture and the truthfulness of Christianity.
“Someone said that the moment you succeed, you need to prepare for your successor to succeed. The church has too often failed in this critical mission. I believe this book to be one of the most timely and important of our day.”—Jim Henry, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention; pastor emeritus of First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL
“The brilliant and respected Andreas and Margaret Köstenberger are wise experts, guiding us through the Bible for a substantive, gospel-rich, and pastorally applied theology of masculinity, femininity, and the goodness of our differences by God’s design.”—Russell D. Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission
“God can and does work miracles through local churches linked together by the gospel for the sake of loving their communities by introducing them to Jesus. I love the vision Chris and Matt live out and lay out in this book. May their tribe increase!”—Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition

“‘The supreme value of reading Edwards is that we are ushered into a universe brimming with beauty,’ writes Ortlund. I couldn’t agree more. And one would be hard-pressed to find a more engaging introduction to this universe for the church. Even the final chapter, on ways in which we should not follow Edwards, offers crucial Christian wisdom. Ortlund’s criticisms of Edwards hit the mark—and deserve consideration by Edwards’s growing number of fans. I plan to use them with my seminary students in years to come. Please peruse this beautiful book. It’s good for the soul.”—Douglas A. Sweeney, Professor of Church History, Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“Having read deeply in seventeenth-century Puritanism, Matthew Ward offers here an illuminating thesis. He argues that English Baptists were compelled liturgically and theologically by the need to worship God purely. Travel with a scholarly writer through the literature yet also be prepared to be gripped with a profound desire for humanity’s proper response to God and His salvation.”—Malcolm B. Yarnell III, Professor of Systematic Theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas
The concept of Nobodies for Jesus is simple but profound: take 14 days and develop a Great Commission lifestyle. The book weaves through numerous New Testament narratives to show how “regular” people, “nobodies,” became somebody for the sake of the gospel. This book, if taken seriously, has the ability to transform individuals, groups, and even entire churches. The 14-day study guide is excellent for use in multiple settings.
In this little book, George Martin writes letters to Matthew, a fictional, or perhaps more accurately, a composite character, sort of a spiritual “John Doe.” Matthew represents new believers in Jesus Christ: a young boy, a high school cheerleader, a plumber, a college professor, a middle aged mother, a seasoned old man, or anyone who has recently believed the gospel and needs to understand clearly new life in Christ. Matthew is that new disciple with all the questions that come, along with all the hopes and the anxieties: Am I truly saved? How can I know for certain? What does it really mean to be saved, to be a child of God? What is now expected of me?
