  • Newton On The Christian Life

    $14.99

    John Newton is best known as the slave trader turned hymn writer who penned the most popular English hymn in history: Amazing Grace. However, many Christians are less familiar with the decades he spent in relative obscurity, laboring as a spiritual doctor while pastoring small parishes in England. In the latest addition to Crossway’s growing Theologians on the Christian Life series, Tony Reinke introduces modern readers to Newton’s pastoral wisdom by leading them through the many sermons, hymns, and-most importantly-letters that he wrote over the course of his life. Considered by many to be one of the greatest letter writers of all time, Newton has valuable insights to offer modern Christians, especially when it comes to fusing together sound doctrine, lived experience, and godly practice.

  • For Us And For Our Salvation

    $12.99

    The belief that Christ is the God-man is definitive of Christian orthodoxy and imperative to a right understanding of the gospel. By the middle of the fifth century, the church had wrestled with many challenges to the biblical portrayal of Christ and, in response to those challenges, had formulated the doctrine of Christ that remains the standard to this day. This look to the past helps as Christians contend with present-day challenges and seek to answer Christ’s question-Who do people say that I am?-for those living in the twenty-first century.

    For Us and for Our Salvation tells the very human story of the formation of the doctrine of Christ in those early centuries of the church. A glossary, numerous charts and timelines, and some helpful appendices make the book accessible and user-friendly. Primary source materials from key theologians and councils complement the engaging narrative.

  • Jonathan Edwards Resolutions

    $2.99

    32 Pages

    Additional Info
    While completing his preparation for the ministry, Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) wrote seventy resolutions that guided him throughout his life. About twenty years later he wrote a letter to young Deborah Hatheway, a new convert in a nearby town, advising her concerning the Christian life. These two writings, often reprinted during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, overflow with straight forward and biblically sound advice. This advice is as current today as it was in the 1700s, and it far surpasses the how to books now overrunning bookstores. If your knowledge of Edwards does not extend beyond his sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, you owe it to yourself to read Jonathan’ Edward’s Resolutions: And Advice to Young Converts.
