the-works-of-richard-sibbes-vol-1All November long, you can get volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes for free!

“The winter prepares the earth for the spring, so do afflictions sanctified prepare the soul for glory.”
—Richard Sibbes

When was the last time you went through trials? How did they affect your relationship with Christ—were you encouraged in your faith, or did you feel abandoned? In The Bruised Reed, Richard Sibbes, the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English theologian, takes on these questions and more. Sibbes uses the metaphor of bruising to describe how God enlightens us: hardships, we learn, come about as a way to drive us to God. Only when our pride is humbled are we able to grasp the sacrifices Christ made for us.

“I shall never cease to be grateful to Richard Sibbes, who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil. I found at that time that Richard Sibbes . . . was an unfailing remedy. His books, The Bruised Reed and The Soul’s Conflict, quieted, soothed, comforted, encouraged, and healed me.”
—Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes gives you not only The Bruised Reed, but also a preface by the editor and a detailed biography.

What People Are Saying about 1,500 Quotations for Preachers

1500-quotations-for-preachers-with-slidesMany pastors and speakers enjoy sharing wise and inspirational quotes from the likes of Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley, but they don’t always have the time to search those authors’ works for just the right words. With 1,500 Quotations for Preachers, with Slides, the task is easy: quotes are organized by author, theme, and Scripture reference.

Here’s what people who use 1,500 Quotations are saying:

“Writers and pastors, do not pass by 1,500 Quotations for Preachers. This is a terrific resource, one I can guarantee is going to get a lot of use in the coming years. I’m thrilled to have it in my Logos library—and I’m sure you will be, too.” —Aaron Armstrong, BloggingTheologically.com

“This is a robust set of volumes that has obviously been put together by a preacher who knows what preachers need in a quotation compendium. Preachers of every stripe will find this a beneficial addition to their Logos collection.” —J. D. Greear, author of Gospel and Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart

“Preachers need to do better than merely combing resources for a pithy quote. They should invest themselves in the original sources as much as possible, and this makes it easy to dig into the original material.” —Joe Thorn, JoeThorn.net

“A striking quote, skillfully employed, resonates in the memory, enabling listeners to carry the sermon’s lesson with them during the following week. . . . This reasonably priced resource provides preachers with a vast array of thought-provoking material that will help illuminate and reinforce great biblical themes and theological truths.” —David Daniels, WiseReader.com

Jacob’s life was characterized by deception. He deceived his father to obtain his brother’s blessing, and was later tricked by Laban.

In Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence, you’ll walk through life with Jacob and his family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

With Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence Complete Church Curriculum, you can:

  • Engage your congregation with a familiar story while discovering new and deeper insights.
  • Teach more effectively with materials designed to integrate, organize, and maximize efficiency in preparation.
  • Connect your church members as you journey along with Jacob and learn how his life lessons are relevant today.

To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain: An Interview with Matt Chandler

iPad mini giveawayToday’s interview is with Matt Chandler, coauthor of The Explicit Gospel and author of the new book To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain. To help kick-start The Gospel Tour, featuring Chandler and Tullian Tchividjian, we’ve partnered with David C. Cook to give away Logos 5 Silver, an iPad mini, a Logos edition of Chandler’s new book, and a Vyrso edition of Tchividjian’s new book (One Way Love). Enter to win by November 14!

1. What inspired you to write your new book, To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain? 

To Live Is Christ

After I converted to Christianity, my development was built upon following a moral code.  I did some of it well, but struggled in other areas, which saturated my heart with guilt rather than conviction, and filled my life with shame rather than delight.  The Holy Spirit used Philippians to awaken my heart and fill my life with the things that made me marvel at God’s goodness and grace.

2. To Live Is Christ confronts the issue of spiritual development—what’s your best piece of advice for becoming a mature Christian? What do you envision a “mature Christian” to be? 

I believe the Bible teaches that if you fill your life with the things that stir your affections for Jesus and avoid the things that rob your affections, while simultaneously seeking to put your sin to death, you’ll mature in a more visible and manifest way.

3. Your book is grounded in Paul’s letter to the Philippians. How can Paul’s story help modern-day Christians grow in their faith? 

The story we read about in Philippians is our story. We were rescued by Christ, have a tendency to wander, and are helped and held by our redeemer. The implications of that shape everything else in our lives, from relationships to money.

4. Philippians 1 says: “to live is Christ, and to die is gain”—why did you name your book after this verse? What special meaning does it hold for you? 

I think everyone assumes that the title is tied to my battle with brain cancer, but it’s not. I think that that simple line encompasses almost everything I want: to have my life, family, and church shaped by, led by, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Meaning, we put Jesus at the focus of our lives and rejoice in the reality that death is dead.

5. What’s one thing you hope people walk away with from this book?

I want people walking away with hope—that the God who saved them has every intention of sanctifying them. It might not feel like a six-lane superhighway, but God is at work. Trust him, press into him; he cares for you.

6. How did the idea of The Gospel Tour get started? 

We (Tullian, David C. Cook, and Doug Hudson) began talking about what it might look like to try and encourage men and women with a night full of gospel goodness. My hope for the tour is my same hope for the book: to encourage the saints and be used by God as a conduit of hope in the journey toward Christlikeness.
