Interview on Wrath and Grace Radio

The Works of William Perkins have not been reprinted since the 17th century.

None Else: 31 Meditations on God’s Character and Attributes

I am grateful to announce that RHB’s newest title just arrived moments ago: “None Else: 31 Meditations on God’s Character and Attributes” (200 pages) by Brian Cosby and me. Each of the 31 chapters contains five short sections: a Scripture meditation, a prayer, a biblical perspective of the particular attribute being studied, reflection questions (for private devotions or study groups), and a section called “dig deeper.” Surely there is no more important subject than to know our Lord God, for there is “none else.”

Two Very Precious Grandchildren

Our daughter snuck this picture this afternoon of me walking with two very precious grandchildren from the seminary to home after completing sermon preparation and beginning some much needed clean-up in my study. God is amazingly good!

“Lady Jane Grey” Now Available in Russian

Our RHB title, “Lady Jane Grey” by Simonetta Carr, which makes for a fascinating story, is now available in Russian.

The Pastor and his Life in the Word of God

In this message I discuss the pastor and his life in the Word of God. A minister of the gospel is a man who has been called by God to a unique and important work. His main task in life is to understand and explain God’s word to God’s people so that they hear, through the preacher, the voice of God speaking to them. A man cannot do that unless he devotes his life to being in the scriptures and spends his time and energy in seeking to understand God’s word. 

Building on the Rock series in Portuguese

Yesterday I was grateful to receive the five-volume set of “Building on the Rock” stories for children by Diana Kleyn and me in Portuguese. Pray that God will use the books for many thousands of children and families in Brazil and Portugal as he has used them in English.

Family Worship QA Session

I just completed doing a QA session following my talk on Family Worship for the Freedom Festival Panel in Manila, Philippines. This upcoming conference is taking place virtually on June 12-13, the Lord willing, with thousands expected to be listening. I was impressed with the young men (pictured here) who were involved in this growing work. Will you pray with me that God will bless their efforts to promote further reformation and revival throughout the Philippines and beyond? 

William Perkins’s Works

I am very excited to announce that the last volume of William Perkins’s Complete Works (vol. 10; Reformation Heritage Books) has arrived! Perkins is often famously called “the father of Puritanism” for a host of reasons. Can you imagine what it would be like to have no access in our day to Calvin’s Institutes or Commentaries? Yet, for some odd, unknown reasons, Perkins’s Works have not been reprinted since the 17th century. What a privilege it has been for me to read and edit the entire set of Perkins’s incredible treatises over the past 7 years! I am almost sorry it is done! If you are a serious Christian and want to grow in grace, you won’t want to be without this set of books. To celebrate the completion of RHB’s largest task ever undertaken, together a team of typists, typesetters, and editors, we are offering this $500.00 set for only $280.00 for the next few weeks. Now is your time to take advantage of this incredible sale for the next few weeks before we revert to our normal discount price which will be considerably higher.

Outdoor Wedding of Tom Beeke and Becky Markus

Yesterday evening I had the privilege to officiate the outdoor wedding of Tom Beeke and Becky Markus in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Tom is my cousin and Becky is my niece, so it was great to connect with several family members as well. And it was the first time in my life that I conducted a wedding where both people were my relatives! Please pray that God will bless them abundantly as husband and wife in Christ Jesus.  

New Titles from RHB

RHB’s latest new title—a 200 page paperback—arrived a few hours ago: “Thriving in Grace: Twelve Ways the Puritans Fuel Spiritual Growth” by Brian Hedges and me. Sinclair Ferguson suggests that if you are looking to grow spiritually through the savory influence of the Puritans, “read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest” this book: I also received today, “Wie du die Bible lieben lernst?” (my “How Should Teens Read the Bible?“ in German). Pray for God’s blessing on both books please.
