The Christmas Gift

December 22, 2016  |  Joe Boot

God invites us to look beyond the confusion and sentimentality that often attends the Christmas season, to appreciate the radical gift He has given us in His Son.

Scripture: Isaiah 9:6

Unwrapping the Meaning of the Season

December 7, 2008  |  Joe Boot
At Christmas we remember, celebrate, commemorate and proclaim the birth of the Christ child, the savior and deliverer of the world. Our creator has become our brother.

Gospel Culture

September 14, 2016  |  Joe Boot

How do we understand our present cultural moment, what does Scripture have to say about our relationship to the culture surrounding us? Gospel Culture is the first in our series of Cornerstones monographs, short works designed to help Christians understand the scope and implications of the gospel, and the particular but timeless challenges to that gospel in the twenty-first century.

Por que Todavia Creo (Why I Still Believe)

September 14, 2016  |  Joe Boot

En Por Que Todavia Creo, el apologista Joe Boot proporciona una introducción legible a la apologética presuposicional para el laico. Este enfoque supone que el cristiano y el no cristiano llegan a la discusión de la fe con cosmovisiones - conjuntos de presuposiciones - que están a kilómetros de distancia, de modo que hay poco terreno común sobre el cual construir un argumento objetivo de la prueba racional. Estas cosmovisiones deben ser examinadas, y Boot muestra cómo la cosmovisión no cristiana no logra hacer sentido del mundo. También invita al no creyente a entrar en la cosmovisión cristiana para ver si tiene sentido o no.

Blessed are the Meek

October 24, 2010  |  Joe Boot
The Meek are the strong in the Lord, broken by God to be harnessed for God's use. Meekness is the opposite of unbridled anger.

The Coming Rest

December 29, 2013  |  Joe Boot

All wickedness will be eradicated by the wisdom and Spirit of God. The kingship of Jesus breaks into history, transforming and restoring everything fallen.

Thirsty Souls and Living Water

Thirsty Souls and Living Water

April 28, 2008  |  Joe Boot

As Christians we are to recognize the human condition of those alienated from Christ and have compassion on them. The gospel message forces us to face reality, and those who reject God experience despair and hopelessness.

How Angry Rebels are Brought into Loving Service to Their Lord

November 28, 2015  |  Michael Nazir-Ali

MOG2015 04: Denying his Creator, man is alienated from the very source of his existence and seeks to cope by turning to idolatry in the form of addictions, money and power. But because of God's radical love at the cross, people are attracted out of the world into participation in the transforming work of God.

Expect the Unexpected

December 1, 2013  |  David Robinson

Isaiah 64:1-9 is a plea for God to rend the heavens and come down to do awesome things we did not look for. It is also a confession of sin. We are unclean, our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment, and we are fading like a dead leaf. We have been in our sins a long time, and Isaiah asks, "Shall we be saved?" The Gospel is God's answer to Isaiah's plea. In Christ, God has opened the heavens and come down and done awesome things we did not look for. Christ cleanses us from our sin, clothes us in his righteousness, and gives us eternal life.
