Living Word Bible Studies—Isaiah

Promo ContentIsa­iah con­tains some of the most beau­ti­ful poetry in the Bible and is a the­o­log­i­cal mas­ter­piece, pre­sent­ing God’s redemp­tive plan. This study guide gives you both depth and a clear overview, as Kath­leen encour­ages and enables you to read the book with grow­ing under­stand­ing and joy.

Isa­iah marks the 8th title in the Liv­ing Word Bible Study series. Later this year (August), P&R will be pub­lish­ing the 9th title in the set—Nehemiah.

“Are you tired of fill-in-the-blank Bible stud­ies? Dr. Niel­son dri­ves you closer to the heart of God and His Word through her thought­ful stud­ies. If you don’t want to read a lec­ture in the form of a com­men­tary, but want to rel­ish the sweep­ing expanse of Scrip­ture within a book through pri­vate inquiry, here is your source.” —Diane Poythress

Hudson Taylor, Gospel Pioneer to China

Promo ContentHud­son Tay­lor founded the China Inland Mis­sion and was the most influ­en­tial mis­sion­ary of the mod­ern mis­sion­ary move­ment. This biog­ra­phy chron­i­cles his con­ver­sion, mis­sion phi­los­o­phy, cul­tural engage­ment, and five decades of service.

“Vance Christie has writ­ten an excel­lent biog­ra­phy of one of the great­est mis­sion­ar­ies of all time. His lively style cap­tures the drama, the dan­ger, and the ded­i­ca­tion of this “lit­tle” man whose faith in God enabled him to accom­plish so much. Read­ers of all ages will be enthralled by the story of God’s remark­able work in and through Hud­son Tay­lor and the China Inland Mis­sion, which Chi­nese Chris­tians today gladly acknowl­edge as essen­tial to the growth of per­haps the largest church on earth.”

G. Wright Doyle, Direc­tor, China Insti­tute and Global China Center

About the Author: Vance Christie has writ­ten a num­ber of pop­u­lar biogra­phies, is the Pas­tor of Aurora Evan­gel­i­cal Free Church in Aurora, Nebraska, and is a mem­ber of the EFCA Min­is­te­r­ial Association.

1 Kings: Reformed Expository Commentary

The newest addi­tion to the Reformed Expos­i­tory Com­men­tary series has arrived! 1 Kings marks the six­teenth vol­ume in the set and is the fifth vol­ume to cover a New Tes­ta­ment text.

“Sadly for many North Amer­i­can Chris­tians, the Old Tes­ta­ment is a dead book, often treated merely as a foil against which to inter­pret the New Tes­ta­ment. Phil Ryken’s work goes much, much far­ther. This vol­ume is a model of expo­si­tion, com­bin­ing thor­ough and respon­si­ble exe­ge­sis with a pas­sion to com­mu­ni­cate the life-giving power of Old Tes­ta­ment Scrip­tures for the church.

Daniel I. Block, Gun­ther H. Knoedler Pro­fes­sor of Old Tes­ta­ment, Wheaton Col­lege, Wheaton, Illinois
