BEYOND THE 95 THESES: Martin Luther's Life, Thought and Lasting Legacy
STEPHEN J NICHOLS

Does your knowledge of Martin Luther's writings start and end with the hymn 'A Mighty Fortress Is Our God'?

As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation he put into motion, we discover a Martin Luther who was one of history's most colorful and influential figures. His story is well known, but his powerful writing is often unfamiliar to us.

This illustrated introductory guide to Luther's life, theology, and works introduces and summarizes his major writings, such as 'The Bondage of the Will 'and 'On the Councils and the Church', and includes, with annotations, the complete 'Ninety-Five Theses'. Stephen Nichols also gives encouragement and guidance for studying Luther's ethical writings, 'table talk,' hymns, and sermons. Includes a select guide for further reading.

REFORMED EXPOSITORY COMMENTARIES: New Testament Series
Doriani, Ryken, Phillips, Thomas and Chappell

THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW by Daniel Doriani

While paying careful attention to a commentary's traditional interest in the structure, backgrounds, and grammar of the text, Doriani also supplies the theological commentary, Christ-centered focus, and personal and corporate applications that pastors and teachers need. Each chapter attends to Matthew's original intent and seeks to express that intent in ways that evoke his distinct voice, so as to fulfill the goal of Matthew's gospel: making disciples by forming the mind, heart, and hands of believers.

THE GOSPEL OF LUKE by Philip Ryken

This commentary is an exposition of Luke: 'the Gospel of Knowing for Sure.' Luke tells us that he wanted to provide an orderly account of the life of Jesus that would help people be more certain of the good news of his death and resurrection. The purpose of this commentary is simply to make Luke's message clear for a contemporary audience by explaining, illustrating, and applying its truth to everyday life, with the hope that readers will understand the gospel and come to full assurance of salvation, as Luke intended.

INCARNATION IN THE GOSPELS by Richard D Phillips, Daniel Doriani, & Philip G Ryken

This book contains sermons preached in advent by 3 of America's most respected pastors. These sermons seek to meet the needs of their people and use the opportunity the season affords in preaching about Christ and Redemption.

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES by Derek W.H. Thomas

One of the most respected Bible teachers of his generation guide us through Luke's record of the growth of the church from Pentecost, throughout Asia Minor, and beyond.

**THE EPISTLE TO THE GALATIANS by Philip Graham Ryken

Philip Graham Ryken interprets Galatians in line with Reformation teaching on this epistle, especially with respect to the doctrine of justification by faith alone. "Properly understood, the gracious gospel of Galatians liberates us from legalism," Ryken writes. "But since we are legalists by nature, the book challenges many of our preconceptions about what it means to have a right relationship with God." Ryken employs primarily the ESV.

**PRESENTLY OUT OF PRINT (HOPEFULLY BACK SOON)

THE EPISTLE TO THE THE EPHESIANS by Bryan Chappell

In this truly homiletical commentary, Dr. Bryan Chapell unfolds Paul's glorious description of how the triumph of the church will occur and what our roles are in Christ's ultimate victory.

THE EPISTLE OF FIRST TIMOTHY by Philip Graham Ryken

This commentary originated with a series of Sunday evening sermons preached at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. In keeping with the subject matter of the book itself, the focus of the exposition is on its practical implications for life in the local church. The author chose to preach from this New Testament book early in his ministry, so as to get the full benefit of PaulĘs instructions to Timothy as a young man in gospel ministry.

THE EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS by Richard Phillips

"Few studies can be more profitable to Christians today than that of the Epistle to the Hebrews," says Richard Phillips. "Written . . . To a group of Jewish Christians facing persecution in the mid-first century AD, the words of this book speak to Christians everywhere about standing firm in Jesus Christ." Hebrews captures the challenges and pitfalls of people throughout the ages and shows both why and how to press on in the faith. Its message of warning and hope centers on the surpassing supremacy of Jesus, seen often from the vantage point of the Old Testament. In keeping with the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this treatment of Hebrews is accessible to both pastors and lay teachers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.

THE EPISTLE OF JAMES by Daniel Doriani

With 59 commands in 108 verses, the epistle of James has an obvious zeal for law. In his imperatives, James directly communicates the royal law, the law of King Jesus (2:8). Thus, the hasty reader will not see much of the gospel in James. But as Doriani reveals in his insightful commentary, the double mention of God's grace at the rhetorical climax of the book shows that the gospel of James is the message of God's grace for sinners.

WHY JOHNNY CAN'T PREACH
David Gordon

Description: T. David Gordon has identified a problem, one that affects us all and needs fixing. Our preaching is just not communicating properly anymore. Fortunately, Gordon not only explains the causes of this failure but also shows us how to make things better.

"No, it's not just you. There's a lot of disappointing preaching today and it's not entirely due to departures from sound principles. It's also affected by the media culture in which we live. While there are helpful studies of popular culture and important books on proper biblical interpretation and theology, this book does both. I couldn't help but wince as I recognized myself in Gordon's descriptions, but he writes so clearly and convincingly that I couldn't help but be grateful." --Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California

"An insightful diagnosis of a serious problem in the life of the church. For this we should be grateful as we should for the way out of the crisis to which this book ably points." --David F. Wells, Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor Of Historical and Systematic Theology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

About the Author

T. David Gordon has been Professor of Religion and Greek at Grove City College since 1999. Previously, he was an Associate Professor of New Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary for 14 years and Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church (Nashua, NH) for 9 years.
