3. Hearers and Doers: A Pastor’s Guide to Growing Disciples through Scripture and Doctrine—20% Off

With arresting prose and striking metaphors, Kevin Vanhoozer addresses the most pressing problems in the modern Church with one answer: teach sound scriptural doctrine to make disciples.

In Hearers and Doers, Kevin Vanhoozer shows us what it looks like when the Christian church “does” the truth, when our making of disciples includes the waking of disciples—waking us up to the metaphors and myths of our secular age so we can follow Christ with faithfulness and passion. A splendid book that brings together biblical exegesis, theological reflection, and cultural analysis—all for the sake of the Church.

5. Boice’s Expositional Commentaries (27 vols.)—75% Off

Boice’s Expositional Commentaries flow from Boice’s decades of preaching at Tenth Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia and hosting The Bible Study Hour radio program.  Each volume reflects Boice’s experience in the pulpit, earning high praise from R. C. Sproul:

Dr. Boice’s commentary series is a treasure for the Church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.

For a taste of Boice’s practical application, take a look at this sample from the Ephesians volume:

We sometimes speak of Christ’s resurrection as the forerunner of our own resurrection—and the proof of it. Because he lives, we shall live also. That is true enough. It is a glorious certainty. But it is not only at the end of things, that is, at our own resurrection, that the power of God displayed in Christ is to be seen in us. It is to be seen in our present victories over sin in this life. In his study of this passage, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones speaks of victory over worldliness, the flesh, and the devil—our three great adversaries. The world constantly bombards us with its values. We get them from television, newspapers, films, the competitive world in which we earn our livings and from casual conversations. How are we to be victorious over this great enemy? It is by the power of God displayed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This power is able to transform us “by the renewing of our mind[s]” (Rom 12:2). It is what makes us “new creation[s]” (2 Cor 5:17).

One volume alone is normally anywhere from $16.99 to $29.99, but right now you can get all 27 volumes of Boice’s Expositional Commentaries for $99.99.
