Reformed Preaching Book Release

This evening marks the official launch of my new book Reformed Preaching at an event at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. I am thankful to join Dr. Sinclair Ferguson, Dr. Kent Hughes, and Dr. John Currie as we discuss proclaiming God’s Word from the heart of the preacher to the heart of His people.

The event at WTS is sold out, but the book is available now from Reformation Heritage Books.

Puritan Documentary Video

I am delighted to announce that the first full video trailer for the Puritan Documentary is now online. The documentary will consist of a full length video (100 minutes) and 34 shorter teaching videos about specific Puritans theologians and doctrines. To watch the trailer and learn more about the documentary and how to pre-order it, go to https://puritandocumentary.com/.

Title: Christ’s Sufficiency for Us as Our Office-Bearer

Christ is all we need for life and ministry, for he is our all-sufficient Prophet, Priest, and King. This was my theme as I was privileged to deliver the 2018 commencement address at Reformation Bible College. You can watch the 35 minute address on the video below.

Reformed Preaching

My new book, Reformed Preaching: Proclaiming God’s Word from the Heart of the Preacher to the Heart of His People, is anticipated to arrive in October. Those who know me know that Reformed experiential preaching is a subject very near and dear to my heart. For an interview that Fred Zaspel did with me recently on this subject, click here.

Spanish Reformation Heritage Study Bible

It’s my pleasure to share the following news item from Reformation Heritage Books: the Spanish version of the Reformation Heritage Study Bible is coming soon!

NEWS RELEASE – For immediate publication – Miami, FL, USA – 8/9/2018

BIBLIA DE ESTUDIO – HERENCIA REFORMADA – PARA LA FAMILIA Y EL ESTUDIO DEVOCIONAL (Reina Valera 1960)

Reformation Heritage Books, Grand Rapids, MI and Poiema Publications, Medellin, Colombia are announcing the release of their Spanish Study Bible at the Expolit Spanish trade event in Miami, FL.

It does not seem like many months have passed since the inaugural planning meeting for this project in the Dominican Republic. Representatives were present in Santo Domingo that day from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Reformation Heritage Books, The Gospel Coalition, Heartcry Missionary Society, The Trinitarian Bible Society, Poiema Publications, IBSJ, Ministerios Integridad y Sabiduría, and others. Today is the direct fruit of that meeting, and for that much thanks is due to God.

The vision outlined during those meetings was to intentionally and pro-actively provide the Spanish speaking world with a spread of excellent resources that will be helpful for pastors, men, women, and children. Central to that is a Reformed Study Bible that is theologically robust, comprehensive, easy to use, and affordable. It includes multiple theological essays, articles on practical Christian living, an overview of church history, creeds and confessions, reading plans, study notes, and devotions for personal and family worship for every chapter of the Bible.

David Woollin, Sales and Marketing Manager for Reformation Heritage Books said, “We are so thankful to all of those who have brought us to this position. This is a monumental achievement and a wonderfully unique and invaluable tool. It is evident from my recent travels and interactions that God is working particularly in Latin America, and we hope you will join us in praying in expectation that this Bible will be used widely to the glory of God and the extension of His Kingdom.”

The Bibles are now available for pre-order while we wait for the full shipment to arrive from overseas. These four editions will imminently be available from all major distributors worldwide.

The Importance of Parents Repenting to Their Children

Parents are far from perfect, but how often do they ask their children for forgiveness? Fathers and mothers should be models of repentance for their children, not illusions of people who never need to repent. To hear more, watch this video on the importance of parents repenting to their children.
