NEW ebook—a Lenten devotional

Rejected of Men

“Who did not know Jesus of Nazareth? Throughout the land his fame was spread abroad. His name was on the lips of high and low, of rich and poor, of the common people and of those that sat in high places.

But he was despised of men. He was considered a worthless fellow, a good for nothing, who was not fit to live in decent and civilized society. No one would offer him a place in the world, or furnish him with a recommendation.”

Rejected of Men is the third part of Rev. Herman Hoeksema’s Lenten anthology, 'When I Survey.' This book lays out the sufferings of Jesus Christ at the hands of sinners. He became a stranger to his brethren, and he was reproached by the ungodly, cast out by his own, and even denied by his disciples.

The Son of God bore innumerable reproaches at the hands of men in order that we might have life with him.

Peace for the Troubled Heart devotional

Looking for a good devotional?

Consider Peace for the Troubled Heart. Made up of meditations on scripture texts, it’s different from other devotionals. These meditations breathe a Christian experience that is drawn from scripture, formed and regulated by sound doctrine, and realistic in a world of sin, suffering, and struggle.

Each chapter is divided into sections, so you can read it in parts—morning, noon, and evening. This is a great way to thoroughly meditate on the chapter throughout the day.

Commemorate and meditate on Christ’s suffering and death with these books

Christ is and was the king...

…whose kingdom is not of this world, and who rejected all the glory that this world offers.
…who refused to allow the Jews to crown him king, though he was the King of the Jews.
…who fought alone, without an army.
...who was arrested by his own people, and mocked by the representatives of the Roman Empire, the great earthly kingdom of that day.
…who was crucified because he was King, and remained King when he died.
…who, being risen and ascended, is the King of kings and Lord of lords.
To this divinely anointed King, this book is witness. Behold your King, and worship him!

Coming soon! Book #3 in the Reformed Spirituality series....

 

All Glory to the Only Good God

Available early September 2013! 

 

The third book in the Reformed Spirituality series, this book again consists of meditations by Protestant Reformed minister and theologian, Herman Hoeksema. The meditations in this volume have in common their living, breathing zeal for the glory of the good God. God is only good-- good in himself; good in creation; good in salvation; good in Christ; good to his elect people.

All Glory to the Only Good GodHoeksema warns against two misconceptions concerning zeal in spirituality. The first error claims that zeal for the glory of God has nothing to do with ardor for spirituality (which is the experience of salvation). The second error implies that spirituality is at odds with doctrine, alluding to the idea that those interested in sound doctrine have little interest in spirituality and vice versa.

This set of beautiful meditations demonstrate that genuine spirituality rises from and ends in the glory of God, for the zeal of the soul for God's glory is the most profound spirituality. And because the Spirit works spirituality by sound doctrine, spirituality exists and flourishes by means of sound instruction in biblical, Reformed doctrine.

Don't miss the first two volumes of this wonderful series, available in both print and eBook formats!Click here to order book #1, Peace for the Troubled Heart, and click here for book #2, Communion with God.
