Ann JudsonPreviously published as My Heart in His Hands, this book is fully revised and updated and is the best modern biography of Ann Judson available. If you only read one biography this year, read Ann Judson: a missionary life for Burma.

If you’re going through trials or suffering you need to read this book and find out that trials are always for a purpose — rightly understood they glorify God and build us up in the faith. Sharon James uses the sources carefully to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson’s piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention, not to venerate them but to challenge us to deeper commitment and service to the Lord.

Praise for Ann Judson: A Missionary Life for Burma:

“For those who love rich and instructive historical narrative, deep and sacrificial Christian commitment, genuine and heart-felt devotion to Christ, and bold and daring service for the sake of the spread of the gospel — one can hardly find a story more amazing than one will read in Sharon James’s excellent depiction of the life and times of Ann Judson, devoted wife to Adoniram Judson. . . May God be pleased to use this wonderful book to stir up the devotion and commitment of his people, to the praise of Christ and the ongoing spread of the message of his cross.”
-Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

“The story of the life of Ann Judson as told by Sharon James was one of the most inspiring, convicting and challenging stories I have ever read. It was given to me as I was struggling with the ‘‘cost’’ of leaving all, family, friends, home, and coming to an unknown, strange, and difficult place. . . . [Ann Judson’s story] inspired and convinced me that no cost is too great, and no price too high for the privilege of taking the ‘‘honours of His Name’’ to those who have never known or heard.”
-Serving long-term missionary in the Far East

“In a venerable line of biographies of Ann Judson, this fresh re- telling of Ann’s story provides a marvellous biographical resource. Courage has been likened to the discovery of new lands — one must be willing to lose sight of the shore if they are ever going to be found. By this standard, Ann Judson was indeed a woman of courage.”
-Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality; and Director of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.

About the Author:
Sharon James is the author of a number of books, and has spoken in conferences in many parts of the world. She studied history at Cambridge University, theology at Toronto Baptist Seminary, and has a doctorate from the University of Wales. Sharon and her husband Bill have two grown-up children.

Daily Readings by J C RyleThis is a brand new edition of an old favorite, printed on a fine quality paper and with a luxurious gold-blocked soft- touch cover, and including cloth page marker. There are morning and evening readings for every day of the year covering all four Gospels, each reading with an additional passage suggested for further reading.

Praise for Daily Readings From All Four Gospels:

“Ryle’s eloquence on the Gospels often captures the point of a passage with both precision and power. I highly commend these readings.”
— Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.

“There’s a reason we keep ‘digging up’ Ryle. His writing is always clear (A 19th century man who writes short sentences!), driven (He’s always going after the jugular vein of your soul), and focused (He just can’t keep his eyes off Jesus). Get a copy and let the nourishment begin—and pick up a spare to put in your guest room.”
— Dale Ralph Davis

“Among the few authors a Christian wants as a lifelong friend and helper, J.C. Ryle is certainly one. After sixty years I still read him with the same relish!”
— Iain H. Murray

J.C. RyleAbout The Author:
J. C. Ryle (1816—1900) was the first Bishop of Liverpool. He was one of the most authoritative churchmen of his time and his writings have been in constant demand throughout the last hundred years. His popularity was due to his clear and simple style, his longevity due to his being a profound thinker and compassionate pastor.

From the Pen of Pastor PaulEarlier this week Daniel R. Hyde sat down with Kevin Boling to discuss his new book From the Pen of Pastor Paul: 1-2 Thessalonians. Listen to their interview here:  LINK.

About the Book:
We hear about it regularly: pastors resigning the ministry, people leaving their churches, and Christians fighting against one another. Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians open up his pastoral heart and theology in a way that addresses contemporary church life. Believers who read through these letters together with this exposition will be shown the Lord Jesus Christ on every page as our chief pastor; you will have your heart warmed with love for fellow Christians; and you will be challenged to live life together with you pastor.

Praise for From The Pen of Pastor Paul:

“The best commentaries on New Testament Epistles are often those that were born the same way as the Epistles themselves: out of the womb of real pastoral concern and ministry. That is what you find in this highly readable book on 1 and 2 Thessalonians. It has an aroma of authenticity about it. Read it and you will sense the heart of the apostle Paul for the 1st century church brought with fresh power into the 21st century.”
-Dr. Conrad Mbewe Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and Chancellor of the African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia

“Danny Hyde’s new book on Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians strikes a unique balance. It has depth so as to assist the pastor as he prepares to preach but is also accessible to any Christian seeking to understand and apply God’sWord to their daily lives. From the Pen of Pastor Paul will be a great blessing to all who read it!”
-Dr. Tim Witmer, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA

A Lost God in a Lost World by Melvin TinkerFrom the Foreword by David F Wells:
I welcome this fine book. I appreciate the fact that Melvin Tinker has gone to the heart of the matter, to the very center of our faith. Evangelical faith is never going to be renewed by better marketing techniques, or more cultural accommodations, slicker presentations, or better business acumen. It will be renewed only when our knowledge of God is deepened, our walk with him becomes more genuine, our faith more authentic, and our churches more biblical. This is exactly what this book calls for. It sets up the doctrinal structure of Christian faith and lays out with great clarity the truth that these doctrines declare. And he shows that as pressing, and sometimes as novel as our challenges seem to be today, they are actually the recurring challenges that God s people have faced in every generation. Here, though, he deals with those challenges from within the biblical period and lays out the biblical answers. If we would but listen we might be quite surprised at the results! We would see the gospel making inroads into our Western world, the Church finding new life, and Christians living with greater confidence and more hope. May it indeed be so!

Praise For A Lost God in a Lost World:

“Addressing the confusion of modern life, Melvin Tinker offers a sure guide to both the crisis of our time and the way to confront and overcome it.”
-Dr Gerald Bray, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

“A Lost God in a Lost World delivers cultural reflection and biblical insight in a highly accessible manner.”
-Dr Tim Chester, tutor with the Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy

About The Author:
Melvin Tinker is Senior Minister of St John, Newland, Hull. Previously he was chaplain to the University of Keele and is a well- known speaker and author of numerous articles on doctrine and ethics. His books include Why do bad things happen to good people?, Close Encounters and Alien Nation, Reclaiming Genesis, Intended for Good The Providence of God and What Do You Expect?

Martyrs of MalaytaOn April 18, 2007, three men gave their lives for Jesus Christ. Two Turkish Christians and one German . . . began their day simply wanting to spend time with local men they thought genuinely wanted to study the Bible. Instead, five hostile young men met their kindness and hospitality with betrayal and treachery.

Very few followers of Christ in the rest of the world heard the story. Lost in the flood of news in our information age, it appeared to be just another senseless murder. But the deaths of Necati Aydin, Ug ur Yuksel and Tilmann Geske, while perhaps ignored or quickly forgotten even among Christians around the world, continue to speak. They proclaim the truth that there are still those among us committed to witnessing to the gospel in difficult locations. They speak loudly of love for Christ and obedience to Him. They testify above the din about their commitment to share Jesus own experience of betrayal and sacrifice that purchased salvation for people from every tongue, tribe and nation.

William Perkins by Joel Beeke and Stephen YuilleWilliam Perkins (1558–1602) earned a bachelor’s degree in 1581 and a master’s degree in 1584 from Christ’s College in Cambridge. During those student years he joined up with Laurence Chaderton, who became his personal tutor and lifelong friend. Perkins and Chaderton met with Richard Greenham, Richard Rogers, and others in a spiritual brotherhood at Cambridge that espoused Puritan convictions.

From 1584 until his death, Perkins served as lecturer, or preacher, at Great St. Andrew’s Church, Cambridge, a most influential pulpit across the street from Christ’s College. He also served as a teaching fellow at Christ’s College, catechized students at Corpus Christi College on Thursday afternoons, and worked as a spiritual counselor on Sunday afternoons. In these roles Perkins influenced a generation of young students, including Richard Sibbes, John Cotton, John Preston, and William Ames. Thomas Goodwin wrote that when he entered Cambridge, six of his instructors who had sat under Perkins were still passing on his teaching. Ten years after Perkins’s death, Cambridge was still “filled with the discourse of the power of Mr. William Perkins’ ministry,” Goodwin said.

Perkins’s influence as a theologian continued unabated after his death. This was due in large part to the widespread popularity of his writings. His writings were translated into several European languages and greatly influenced British and American Reformed theology, the Dutch Further Reformation, and European Pietism.

About The Authors:
Joel R. Beeke is president and professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, editor of Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth, editorial director of Reformation Heritage Books, president of Inheritance Publishers, and vice-president of the Dutch Reformed Translation Society. His Ph.D. is in Reformation and Post-Reformation theology from Westminster Theological Seminary.

J. Stephen Yuille is preaching-teaching pastor of Grace Community Church in Glen Rose, Texas. He is also the director of Baptist studies at Redeemer Seminary in Dallas, Texas, and the author of Living Blessedly Forever: The Sermon on the Mount and the Puritan Piety of William Perkins.

EP Books author Daniel R. Hyde was recently interviewed on The Shaun Tabatt Show about his and William Boekestein’s new book A Well-Ordered Church. Click below to stream the interview:

A_Well_Ordered_ChurchAbout The Book:
“Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior.”

No phrase captures better the ethos of modern evangelical Christianity. And while this is absolutely necessary for a Christian to believe and profess, what typically gets lost in much evangelical thinking and acting is Jesus’ church. This book seeks to present to evangelical Christians the basics of ecclesiology, or, the biblical doctrine of the church. The authors say in these pages, “This is a church, in the most basic and fundamental of ways. No matter what view of church government you may hold, the goal is to draw you back to the big principles of Scripture to help you understand the church s identity, authority, ecumenicity, and activity.”

Praise for A Well-Ordered Church:

“William Boekestein and Danny Hyde love the church because they love the church’s Head, Jesus Christ. They want you and me to love the church also. How? By learning more about the order, offices, and callings that Jesus has given the church in the Bible. This is a well-written, accessible, and practical introduction to the life and work of the church. Whether you are new Christian or you have been one for a long time, read this book and get a clearer glimpse of the church … and of the Savior who “loved the church and gave himself up for her.””
-Guy Prentiss Waters, James M. Baird, Jr. Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Miss. USA

“In an age when ‘doing church’ has either been shaped by an ‘if it feels good, do it’ approach, or else by the narrow constraints of particular views of church, the issues addressed in these pages are very timely. While having have their own particular church background, they come with an awareness of the larger church that enables them to reach into the wide spectrum of church life. Their aim is to open up key biblical principles to explain what the church is and how it functions covering all the major aspects of church life. Regardless of church background, anyone who wants to get a clearer grasp of why church matters and what it should be like should read this book.”
-Mark G. Johnston, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff UK

“This book helps readers navigate the host of Scriptures where the Spirit instructs us regarding the nature, structure, and practice of the church. Like the authors, I too, deeply desire that many more church leaders would discover the riches of the Word in these matters and follow the Good Shepherd.”
-Theodore G. Van Raalte, Professor of Ecclesiology, Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary

About the Authors:
William Boekestein (M.Div., Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary) is the pastor of Covenant Reformed Church in Carbondale, Pennsylvania. He has authored several books including Ulrich Zwingli, and Why Christ Came.

Daniel R. Hyde (Th.M., Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary) is the Pastor of Oceanside United Reformed Church in Carlsbad, California. He is author of over a dozen books including Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims and also serves as an adjunct instructor at Mid-America Reformed Seminary and Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
