Just wanted to quickly make you aware that Christian Focus’ blog, Christian Focus Booknotes, is giving away a couple great prize packs to celebrate “a month of blogging under [their] belts.” The contest runs March 21st – 26th! The two prize packs are summarized below:
The first place prize includes the following three books:
Systematic Theology Volume One by Douglas F. Kelly
“I have written this first volume, thinking of my heritage as both Reformed and Catholic; gladly appropriating crucial insights of the whole people of God over the last two thousand years – Eastern Orthodox, Western Catholic, and Reformation Protestant – as they sought to live out the foundational truths of the inspired Word of God.”
The Priesthood of Christ by John Owen
John Owen is noted for taking themes that those who had gone before had often wrestled with and write with clarity and depth. He does the same here with ‘The Priesthood of Christ’. Having studied the Book of Hebrews in great depth and written a world renowned commentary on it, John Owen is able to give us a comprehensive guide to this important theme. He explains how the Old Testament pillars of the Law and the Covenant relate to Christ’s office of Priest. Includes an introduction from Sinclair B. Ferguson.
Ezra & Nehemiah: A Mentor Commentary by Tiberius Rata
Through these fascinating Old Testament books, Ezra and Nehemiah you will discover a God who is in control of history and the hearts of his people. It is a real encouragement to be reminded how Yahweh can even work through the lives of secular leaders, just as he did with the Persian Kings, Cyrus and Artaxerxes.
The second place prize pack includes the following two books:
The Gospel of God: Romans by R.C. Sproul
Paul’s epistle to the Romans has been influential at critical moments in church history: The conversion of Augustine in the early church; Influencing Martin Luther and John Calvin during the Protestant Reformation; Changing the lives of George Whitfield and John Wesley in the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century. But it is not only those who have become leaders in the church who have been affected by the book of Romans; ordinary Christians have lived transformed lives as a result – up to the present day. One reason is because in Romans, Paul clearly sets out a theological framework for us to understand the Christian faith. It is a comprehensive description of the way that God offers salvation to humankind – and it is ‘Good News’.
From the Finger of God by Philip S. Ross
This book investigates the biblical and theological basis for the classical division of biblical law into moral, civil, and ceremonial. It highlights some of the implications of this division for the doctrines of sin and atonement, concluding that theologians were right to see it as rooted in Scripture and the Ten Commandments as ever-binding.
