1. The Triune God edited by Ronald L. Kohl
Page Count: 352
Summary: While the workings of the Trinity challenge our understanding, Bible-believing Christians cannot let themselves downplay the Trinity or ignore it. We find the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each present throughout the pages of Scripture—and each equally deserving of our love and reverence.
This book, while not attempting to define or explain the Trinity, dedicates equal space to examining the qualities and roles of each member as we find them in the Bible, to help us grow in our knowledge and understanding. To do so, the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals has gathered essays from leading pastors and preachers on:
GOD THE FATHER
Bryan Chapell The Greatness of God • The Love of God
Richard D. Phillips The Holiness of God • The Wrath of God
Kevin DeYoung The Truth of God
GOD THE SON
D. A. Carson The Glory of the Son • Our Risen Savior
Joel R. Beeke The Incarnate Word • The Cross of Christ
Iain M. Duguid The Life and Ministry of Jesus
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
D. A. Carson Streams of Living Water
Michael S. Horton The Age of the Spirit
Philip Graham Ryken Born of the Spirit
Hywel Jones Life in the Spirit
R. C. Sproul Holy Spirit, Counselor
These addresses will make us more familiar with each person of the Trinity and will show us how to rightly respond to each one. The more we know how to relate to the Trinity, the more we can enrich our love for our triune God.

Series: Living Story
Summary: Love. People have tried to understand it since the beginning of time—yet our culture yearns for love more than ever. Is it possible to understand and, more importantly, to live love in a world desperate for it? Elizabeth Turnage reminds us that God alone can show and help us to under-stand love—for he not only loves us, but also empowers us to love as well. In previous studies, Elizabeth has helped us to learn God’s story of grace and to live it out ourselves. In this final Living Story book, she teaches us the ultimate joy of living in God’s story of grace: loving as God loves us. Beginning by searching the depths and heights of God’s love, she moves on to show us where we fit in and how, by continuing to walk in God’s story, we can learn to love too. If you know God’s story of grace and where your story fits in, learn how to take the next step and make your story bigger than it’s ever been before!
One Year Daily Devotional for Students
by Jon Nielson
Page Count: 384
Summary: Have you ever tried reading through the entire Bible, only to bail partway through a huge list of names or a chapter on infectious skin diseases? The sixty-six books of the Bible may seem pretty different from each other, but they actually tell one story—a story with one Author, one Hero, and one key plotline. (And yes, sometimes skin diseases do play an important part!) This yearlong, daily study of God’s Word guides you through five acts of his grand story of redemption. Although you won’t read every chapter in the Bible, daily Scripture and devotional readings will equip you to understand the unity and development of God’s story and to grow in your personal discipline of Bible study and prayer.
4. 1 & 2 Samuel: Rise of the Lord’s Anointed by Kay Gabrysch
Page Count: 464
Summary: From the private sorrows of Hannah to the action-packed reign of King David, the narratives of 1 and 2 Samuel make for a gripping read. But how do you best study these stories? What bearing do they have on Christ, the New Testament, or your life today? Kay Gabrysch answers these questions while helping us develop a lasting framework for reading biblical narratives.
- Recurring “big questions” explore characterization, setting, worldview, conflict, resolution, and relation to Christ.
- Questions specific to the passages cross-reference to the rest of Scripture.
- Application questions go straight to your heart and life.

Summary: In our world things are not the way they are supposed to be. If God is perfect, loving, and powerful, why does he allow this world to be so painful and imperfect? Scripture provides satisfying answers to these questions.

Summary: To many, the only remaining certainty in our world is uncertainty. Pluralism has convinced us that unchanging truth, if it exists at all, is entirely beyond our grasp. All we are left with is a circular argument in which all the answers come from us. Only the authoritative voice of Scripture can dispel such clouds of doubt and confusion. Garner shows us that we can know truth, and know it with assurance.
