Now on Pre-Pub: The Henrietta C. Mears Collection

“There is no magic in small plans. When I consider my ministry, I think of the world. Anything less than that would not be worthy of Christ nor of His will for my life.” —Henrietta Mears

henrietta mearsHenrietta Mears was one of the twentieth century’s great Bible teachers. For 35 years, she served as the director of Christian education at First Presbyterian Church in Hollywood, California. Her experience as a former drama instructor, gifts as a teacher, and penchant for memorizing large passages of Scripture brought the Bible to life. Through her leadership, First Presbyterian’s Sunday school attendance grew from 450 in 1928 to 6,500 in 1933.

Dissatisfaction with  available Sunday school curricula led Mears to found Gospel Light Publications in 1933 as a way to distribute her own curriculum. Gospel Light continues as one of the largest providers of Sunday school curricula today.

It would be impossible to assess Mears’ full influence. Not only has she touched the lives of those under her direct care; she has had a remarkable second-hand influence through those she mentored. Continue Reading…

10 More Warren Wiersbe Quotes

Warren WiersbeToday we celebrate the birthday of one of America’s most beloved pastors. Warren Wiersbe, author of more than 80 books and former pastor of Moody Church in Chicago, turns 84 today.

Last year, we remembered his birthday with 10 dynamic quotes. Here are 10 more powerful quotes, taken from his “Be” series of commentaries.

1. “Each member in the body of Christ is important (1 Cor. 12:12–31), and we all need one another and to minister to one another. Since there’s no competition in the work of the Lord (John 4:34–38; 1 Cor. 3:5–9), there’s no need for us to promote ourselves. The important thing is that God receives the glory.” from Be Available: Judges

2. “‘Christ died,’ is only a fact in history, like ‘Napoleon died.’ The Gospel message is that ‘Christ died for our sins’ (1 Cor. 15:1–4, italics mine).” from Be Comforted: Isaiah

3. “Impatience was one of Israel’s besetting sins, and God was helping them learn patient obedience; for it’s through ‘faith and patience’ that God’s people inherit what He has promised (Heb. 6:12). God is never in a hurry. He knows what He’s doing, and His timing is never off.” from Be Strong: Joshua Continue Reading…

Logos 5: Making Bibliographies a Breeze

Not many people love creating bibliographies. If you’re wise, you’ve been documenting your sources as you go. But you still have to compile that information into a workable bibliography. Often that obligatory but important task becomes a time-consuming afterthought—but not with Logos 5.

Logos makes bibliography creation a snap. It remembers what you’ve been reading, citing and organizing your sources in your chosen citation style automatically. You can add your own custom notes and annotations, and even share your bibliography with friends and colleagues on Faithlife, export to a word processor, or print straight from Logos 5.

 

The bibliography feature is another way Logos 5 is making Bible study more intuitive. Check out Logos 5′s other intelligent features, and see which base package is perfect for you.

An Interview with Tony Reinke on John Newton’s Legacy

Get The Works of John Newton, vol. 1 as April’s free book of the month. But hurry—tomorrow’s the last day!

Today’s guest post is from Tony Reinke, author of Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books. Tony, a researcher, writer, and content strategist for Desiring God, lives with his wife and three children in Minneapolis.

What compelled you to begin researching John Newton?

For several years, I helped serve the pastors of a small denomination in the United States, and Newton was one of the historical men I chose to study as a way of becoming familiar with the questions and pressures of pastoral ministry. I found him very readable and relevant to the contemporary needs and challenges faced by pastors.

Newton was not theologically educated (formally), but he leveraged his biblical insight and his street smarts about the world and his own heart to all of Christian life and to his rich pastoral counsel. He is a unique voice in church history for that reason. And so I really got to know Newton over those years, and the deeper I dove into Newton’s letters, the more I loved reading his works. The more I read, the more I became impressed with the cohesion I saw in the fragments of his pastoral care. The more I began studying Newton, the more secondary sources I began to read, and the more secondary resources I read, the more clear it became how difficult of a time others have had in trying to fit Newton’s pastoral counsel together. The challenge of fitting his works together drew me in even further to his writings. Continue Reading…
