New! Runaways, Running from God is a paperback 144-page book, written by Pastor Kevin J. Sadler.
In this book we will consider stories of some people in the Bible who ran away from God: the prodigal son, Onesimus, Jonah, Elijah, and John Mark. Each of them ran for different reasons, such as fear, sin, unbelief, worldliness, or hardheartedness. These examples of runaways teach us many things. We learn what they learned. We learn how they grew in their faith and how their attitudes and lives were changed by God.
Hebrews 4:12 reminds us that "the Word of God is quick [living], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword." The truths found in the biblical accounts of runaways are living and applicable, powerful and transformative, and sharp and challenging to the heart. Join us as we run away with them, but then get turned around in the right direction toward God.
New! More Rightly Divided Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, is a paperback 296-page book, written by Pastor Ricky Kurth.
The author's first FAQ book, Rightly Divided Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, was so well received that we here at Berean Bible Society felt constrained to publish a sequel. We are aware that Solomon wrote, "of making many books there is no end" (Ecclesiastes 12:12), but there is also no end to the asking of many Bible questions. And while there are already many Bible FAQ books, their failure to employ the essential hermeneutic of "rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15) renders them inadequate when it comes to solving some of the Bible's knottiest puzzles.
So in this present volume, we again pick up the sword of God's rightly divided Word and bring it to bear on some questions that all Christians ask, as well as some that only mid-Acts dispensational grace believers would ever think to ask. And it is our sincere prayer that you will receive our words as did the Bereans of old, who "received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11).
Questions and answers in this book cover the following topics: life (sin and suffering), salvation, eternal security, the grace message, and the Christian life.
New! Foundational Truths is a 144-page paperback book, written by Pastor John Fredericksen.
In Matthew 7:24-27, the Savior gave an illustration about building a house upon a rock and building one on sand. The one built upon a rock was able to withstand floods and fierce winds, but the one built upon sand fell when the floods and storms came. The point was that a strong foundation is needed in the physical realm for a house to survive. In the spiritual realm, a strong foundation is just as crucial if one is to survive the fierce winds of trials in life and the flood of confusing doctrine that will surely come to try our souls.
The chapters in Foundational Truths were written for the purpose of equipping believers with a strong biblical and spiritual foundation. Early chapters dig the footers our spiritual building with basic but important information about the Christian's identity in Christ, being completely forgiven, and learning how to deal with sin after salvation. We then move on to the integrity of our Bible and how to study it. Successive chapters pour the concrete of identifying important divisions in the Scriptures. Then, like adding layers of brick to a building, further chapters document important distinctions between God's dealings with Israel in contrast with how He deals with us today in the Dispensation of Grace. Like windows in a building, subsequent chapters then move on to shed light on different gospel messages in Scripture, and how prayer works today. Final chapters on the church become the roof on our spiritual building. All of this is firmly held together with the rebar and mortar of understanding God's Word rightly divided.
These lessons were originally written and taught by the author in churches where he has pastored over thirty years. The content purposely contains some repetition because we found this helped those new to these truths to better remember what they were learning. Several chapters are also presented in a chart format to better see at a glance an overview of a specific subject.
