“It’s cancer.”

When you hear the two words you dread most from someone you care about, you know at once that your friend’s life has been turned upside down.

Whether she’s a good friend, a best friend, or just an acquaintance, you want to be supportive. But how can you understand what she’s going through enough to know what she needs? What can you say besides “If you need anything—anything at all . . .”?

Marissa Henley is here to help show you the way. A cancer survivor herself, she lets you in on what having cancer feels like and what your friend truly needs. She prepares you to support your friend with both knowledge and compassion. And she offers specific action steps and practical support resources to help you show love in the day-to-day details.

Cancer is a life-altering challenge—but Marissa will equip and empower you to walk alongside your friend with love and support.

 2. The Life of Moses: God’s First Deliverer of Israel by James Montgomery Boice

472 pages | $29.99 | Hardcover | SAMPLE CHAPTER

“Apart from Jesus Christ, no person in history has made as deep or lasting an impression on the world as Moses.”

So begins this study of the life 
of Moses—the renowned lawgiver, prophet, friend of God, and deliverer
of his people. The events of his life, spanning four books of the Bible, resound throughout Scripture—and while our own lives may seem to pale in comparison, God wants to grow in us the same character traits that he used in the life of this “servant of God” (Rev. 15:3).

This epic undertaking, composed of never-before-published material from the late James M. Boice, delves fully into the narrative of Moses’ life, uncovering its rich meaning and its gospel application to our lives today. Dr. Boice captures the broad sweep of Israel’s captivity, deliverance, and wanderings, defends the Bible’s historical reliability, and offers wise pastoral advice on many practical topics.

Demonstrating what we can learn from their successes and strengths as well as their sins and failures, Boice also leads us to look beyond Moses and the Israelites to the awesome power of their God and the much needed, final Deliverer of his people to come.


“Dr. James Montgomery Boice was first and foremost a preacher. He preached with authority because he had a profound sense of the binding
and compelling truthfulness of God’s Word. And because Scripture is the very word of God, Boice had a profound sense of drama. We see this clearly in these never-before-published lessons on the life of Moses. Here we find astounding moments and breathtaking scenes. Here we find ourselves standing on holy ground. Here we learn from Moses that we must trust God, obey God, and focus on God to the exclusion of all else. And here Dr. Boice continues to teach us of our ultimate calling: to worship God in the splendor of his glory.”

—Stephen J. Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College; Chief Academic Officer, Ligonier Ministries

“Dr. Boice teaches us about more than the life of Moses. He teaches us why we can trust the God of Moses and how we are to hold fast to God’s Word. Through the life of Moses, Boice teaches us about the life of faith in our Redeemer. Once again, Boice’s pastoral care in his writing makes this book a great resource for laypeople to use during their devotional time.”

—Aimee Byrd, Author, Why Can’t We Be Friends? and No Little Women; Cohost, Mortification of Spin podcast

“What a gift to the church are these words from a faithful preacher of the Word who now knows the full presence of the Lord Jesus he served so
well. As Dr. Boice unfolds the words and life of Moses in these chapters, he unswervingly points us to the promised prophet—one like Moses, but the very Son of God, the Word made flesh. I’m grateful to Linda Boice and those who with such excellence and love have compiled and edited this volume.”

—Kathleen Nielson, Author, Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word; Advisor and Editor, The Gospel Coalition

“Dr. Boice had an eye for the many close connections between the Old and New Testaments. With Moses, those connections are especially abundant. The result is an exposition that frequently displays Jesus Christ in his atoning sacrifice and resurrection glory. . . .

Everyone who reads this life of Moses 
will have the rare and genuine pleasure of hearing Dr. Boice’s strong voice again. By the grace of God, the message in its pages will bring fresh blessing to the church of Jesus Christ.”

—Philip Graham Ryken, from the foreword

 3. Journeys with Jesus: Every Path in the Bible Leads Us to Christ by Dennis E. Johnson

192 pages | $14.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER

This is an abridged edition of Walking with Jesus through His Word (P&R, 2015). 

The Bible’s sixty-six books form one overarching story—the story of a Hero and his heroic missions. And this story is personal, focusing on the relationship of God and his people in the past, present, and future.

On this eye-opening journey through the Old and New Testaments, Dennis Johnson shows how pervasive, recurring themes are always pointing us to Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of all God’s promises and all humanity’s hopes and longings. He shows us how to read on the alert, paying attention to the clues, examining their context, and interpreting them correctly.

The story of Christ is the most important story of all. Meditate on the beautiful unity of God’s redemptive plan, and let your heart be kindled to flame with love for the Lord who came to serve us in love.


“Read this book and you’ll never read the Book the same way again.”

—Michael S. Horton

“An outstandingly helpful book.”

—Sinclair B. Ferguson

“We are in need of . . . a complete reorientation to how to read and understand the Bible with Christ at the center. That’s exactly what Dennis Johnson provides to us in this book.”

—Nancy Guthrie

“Discover the many glorious ways in which the Old Testament points to Jesus as its goal.”

—G. K. Beale

4. Free to Be Sons of God by Geoffrey M. Ziegler

360 pages | $49.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Series: Reformed Academic Dissertations

Today, what constitutes freedom is identified in terms of human autonomy. Ziegler instead proposes a previously undeveloped thesis—that freedom is a gift from without, not from within. He proposes that being a son of God is essential to being free and that there is no tension between freedom and human obedience to commands—a relationship exemplified by Jesus. This is a concept previously undeveloped at an exegetical or a theological level.


“I have seldom met such a happy blend! Dr. Ziegler conjoins a deeply original meditation—not at all novelty for novelty’s sake but an insight into the truth of Scripture that has until now received scant attention—with philosophical competence and a sure-footed understanding of contemporary issues.”

—Henri A. G. Blocher, formerly Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Theology, Wheaton College Graduate School

“Geoff Ziegler’s Free to Be Sons of God is interesting, relevant, and prophetic. . . . I found this superb dissertation both stimulating and sanctifying. If you want to be free, or reminded of what freedom in Christ means, take and read.”

—Douglas Sean O’Donnell, Senior Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Elgin, Illinois

“Dr. Ziegler tackles an issue that is important and contested in current society and culture: freedom. . . . Dr. Ziegler’s work illuminates an important strand of biblical teaching and usefully confronts a false view of freedom that is widespread in our modern culture.”

—Douglas J. Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College Graduate School

“In this important study, Ziegler provides a penetrating biblical, theological, and historical assessment of John Stuart Mill’s conception of human freedom as radical autonomy. In our age drunk on the elixirs of individualism, identity construction, and self-determination, Ziegler’s conclusions are as countercultural as they are compelling.”

—Scott M. Manetsch, Professor of Church History, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Geoffrey M. Ziegler (PhD, Wheaton College) is senior pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Hinsdale, Illinois.
