“Marsh has unearthed enough archival material to keep generations of Bonhoeffer scholars occupied, but, more important, has used his knowledge to weave a mesmerizing tale about one of the giants of the twentieth century. I can’t remember when I have read a more compelling biography.”—Alan Jacobs

Murray Capill helps all preachers who want to change lives to make their preaching wholly applicable, avoiding the pitfalls of tacked-on application. He takes preachers through the living application preaching process—moving the Word of God, via the life of the preacher, to the lives of the hearers—and gives them the tools to systematically explore the application potential of any text.
Jerry Bridges’ life is a remarkable story of God’s providence. From “a most unpromising beginning” as a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks he joined the Navy, went to college, became an engineer, joined The Navigators as a missionary and eventually became a best-selling author. In this book Jerry illustrates through his story—and then summarizes for the reader—seven key “spiritual lessons” that God has taught him through his 83 years.
In these accessible guides, Justin Holcomb introduces readers to the church’s most important statements of faith (and to the major heresies in Christian history in the other volume) over the centuries and shows why these still matter today. Discussion questions make each volume useful for individual and group study alike.
