God, You Are: 20 Promises from the Psalms for Kids

William R. Osborne

In this book, professor, pastor, and father William R. Osborne presents short devotionals around the 20 “You Are” statements found in the Psalms. Each devotional is followed by a short prayer that families can pray together as they read. Using a clear and warm style, Osborne provides a distinct connection between the gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s goodness, holiness, and mercy as they are illustrated in the Psalms.

“Oh, how I love this book! With tender affection for the Lord and for children, Osborne guides kids through the book of Psalms by winsomely connecting childhood experiences to images and themes in the psalms and revealing how they point to Jesus. I can already tell this will become a beloved book for my family, and I suspect it will become a staple in many homes.”
Caroline Saunders, author, The Story of Home and The Story of Water

How to Read and Understand the Psalms

Bruce K. Waltke
Fred G. Zaspel

In this book, professor, pastor, and father William R. Osborne presents short devotionals around the 20 “You Are” statements found in the Psalms. Each devotional is followed by a short prayer that families can pray together as they read. Using a clear and warm style, Osborne provides a distinct connection between the gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s goodness, holiness, and mercy as they are illustrated in the Psalms.

“The most obvious virtue of How to Read and Understand the Psalms is its scope. An appropriate subtitle for the book might be What You Always Wanted to Know about the Psalms. As part of this admirable scope, detailed explications of specific psalms balance the chapters that explore the topics important to scholarship on the Psalms.”
Leland Ryken, Emeritus Professor of English, Wheaton College

Elisabeth Elliot: A Life

Lucy S. R. Austen

In this single-volume biography, Lucy S. R. Austen takes readers on an in-depth journey through the life of Elisabeth Elliot—her birth to missionary parents, her courtship and marriage to Jim Elliot, her missions work in Ecuador, and her private life and public work after she returned to the United States. Through Elliot’s example of love for God and obedience to his commands, readers will ponder what it means to follow Jesus.

“Lucy S. R. Austen’s biography of Elisabeth Elliot is not only (by far) the best account we have of this fascinating woman; it is also a book that should inspire other biographers—both first-timers and veterans—to resist the relentless pressure to smooth out the rough edges of the lives they are seeking to chronicle. Here we have a story that will remind us of the twists and turns, the unexpected chapters, and the deep sense of grace that marks our own lives.”
John Wilson, Senior Editor, The Marginalia Review of Books; former Editor, Books & Culture

Justification: An Introduction

Thomas R. Schreiner

In this addition to the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Thomas R. Schreiner examines the biblical and historical background of the doctrine of justification. Schreiner explores it throughout church history and analyzes both the Old and New Testament teachings. By examining the relationship between justification and other doctrines of salvation—such as redemption, reconciliation, adoption, and sanctification—Schreiner shows how it gives peace, assurance, and joy to sinners through Jesus and hope for life today.

“This book is a comprehensive and important introduction to the subject of justification by faith alone, which is one of the most important Christian doctrines and key to understanding the true nature of Protestantism. Schreiner’s presentation is informative and lucid, making it one of the best ways for students and others to grasp what justification is and why it matters today as much as ever.”
Gerald Bray, Research Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School; author, Biblical Interpretation: Past and Present

Sanctification as Set Apart and Growing in Christ

Marny Köstenberger

Surveying the Bible from beginning to end, Köstenberger shows that sanctification is grounded in the eternal holiness of God, who created humanity in his image. Now, in Christ, the Spirit sets believers apart and restores them to the original image. Sanctification often takes place in the midst of suffering and equips believers for their God-given mission.

“This short but careful, compelling, and comprehensive study accomplishes a great deal, exposing the reason for conflicting views about sanctification, examining the biblical terminology in context, and tracing the way the theme develops as God’s purpose for humanity is progressively disclosed in Scripture. Marny Köstenberger writes with great clarity, showing how a biblical-theological approach to this topic is both necessary and empowering for those who would lead a godly life.”
David G. Peterson, Emeritus Faculty, Moore Theological College; author, Possessed by God
