Who was George Müller?

Müller cared for 10,024 orphans in his lifetime, educating many of them. He established 117 schools, which offered Christian education to over 120,000 children who, otherwise, would likely have received no education at all.

Müller wrote frequently about the stewardship of money, nonreliance on earthly riches, and how God would bless those who kept to those principles. He felt that his own experiences proved the truth of his claims: he refused any sort of salary, and gave away most of the donations he received. Müller left a legacy of selflessness and compassion.

The George Müller Collection contains the four-volume Narrative of Some of the Lord’s Dealings with George Müller (a detailed autobiographical account of Müller’s entire life and ministry), Jehovah Magnified (a bestselling compilation of more than 30 lectures and addresses), and secondary literature about his life and work. The collection also includes five volumes about Müller’s life written by his contemporaries, including his wife.

“George Müller’s life was one long witness to the prayer-hearing God; and, throughout, God bore him witness that his prayers were heard and his work accepted. The pages of his journal are full of striking examples of this witness. . . .”
—Arthur T. Pierson

1.”God has a master plan for your life, and that master plan does not change either. It is a plan designed specifically for you. It is a plan that God intends for you to live out fully, beginning at the moment of your birth and never ending until the moment of your death.” (Discover Your Destiny)

The Real Message of David and Goliath

Rethinking GoliathYou’ve known this story since you were a kid sitting in front of a flannel board in Sunday school. David, the Israelite shepherd boy armed with a sling and a few stones, defeats Goliath, the giant Philistine warrior.

This seemingly mismatched battle between a plucky little guy and an invincible big guy has captured imaginations to the point that even people who have never set foot in church know that a “David and Goliath” situation involves an underdog taking on a titan.

Rethinking David and Goliath

But what lesson should we take away from the story of David and Goliath? Is it about courage? Faith? Humility? All of the above? As is often the case with narrative portions of the Bible—and particularly the Old Testament—the message for readers is not explicitly stated.

In Rethinking David and Goliath, Lisa A. Eary brings the method of evangelical narrative criticism to bear on this familiar tale. Following OT scholar J. Daniel Hays, Eary describes evangelical narrative criticism as “a modified form of literary criticism that adopts the standard techniques of literary analysis to enhance close reading of the text but rejects the postmodern presuppositions.” It looks at a text’s literary features, history, and theological elements to help readers see how their own lives might be transformed.

Get the Best Price on Matthew Poole’s Commentary

Matthew PooleRight now, you can bid on Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible at 67% off!

“If I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator . . . not so pithy and witty by far as Matthew Henry, but he is perhaps more accurate, less a commentator, and more an expositor.”
Charles Spurgeon

Who was Matthew Poole?

Poole was one of the seventeenth century’s most influential Puritan ministers and thinkers. A clergyman in England during a time of religious persecution, he fled the country because of death threats. Poole was a devoted Christian, full of integrity and perseverance, as well as a great theologian and writer. His commentary series continues to be a trusted resource for pastors and laity.

Poole’s exposition offers verse-by-verse insight into the entire Bible. Characterized by questions and answers, attention to cultural context, and cross-references, it includes a brief introduction and summary for each chapter and book of the Bible. [Read more...]

Logos 5: Create Your Own Series

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

 With the recent release of Logos 5.1, we can now create a series of books that behaves as a whole, not as separate parts.

For example, the Hebrew and Greek texts are, in a sense, only “half Bibles” because they contain only the Old or New Testaments. If we opened a Hebrew Bible and typed John 3:16, we wouldn’t jump there because there’s no John 3:16 in the Hebrew OT.

The new 5.1 Series feature lets you join the Greek and Hebrew texts, forming a whole Bible.

Try this:

  • Open your library.
  • Click Browse (A).
  • Click the Resource Information icon on the library’s toolbar, which opens a pane on the right (B).
  • Type lhb in the library’s Find box, which lists the Lexham Hebrew Bible (C).
  • Click Set series in the information pane on the right (D).
