Acts by William J Larkin( Book )

In Acts, the sequel to his Gospel, Luke tells how the Holy Spirit transformed a ragtag band of believers into a unified, world-engaging church. In this commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on understanding what significance Acts had for its original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today. --from publisher description

The communicator's commentary by D. Stuart Briscoe( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 2003 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality

What works when life doesn't by D. Stuart Briscoe( Book )

11 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular author Stuart Briscoe understands that for many Christians the wonderful promises and benefits of Christianity do not seem to work. Happiness is elusive, doing right does not always pay, stress is not eased, and suffering continues. In this new edition of Briscoe's popular book, he shares solid answers from a most unexpected place -- the book of Psalms. Far from more bedtime devotionals, the psalms speak plainly to today's postmodern uncertainty with directness and relevance. Briscoe selects twelve psalms that show how happiness, joy, and meaning are more than good feelings resulting from pleasant circumstances. Rather, these blessings result from knowing that God is in control of every situation and that he walks with us through our pain and fears. Far from delivering a head-in-the-clouds, "be more holy" sermon, this book deals head-on with the stuff of being human -- failure, sin, self-doubt, unbelief, depression, and stress; showing how God's ancient wisdom can make life work in today's tough times
