After Darkness, Light: Essays in Honor of R.C. Sproul
 
After Darkness Light by R. C. Sproul
 
The five points of Calvinism and five "solas" of the Reformation are hallmarks of a Reformed understanding of Scripture. In this refreshing exploration of those truths, ten prominent contributors pay tribute to R.C. Sproul, whose name is virtually synonymous with these treasured Reformed directives.
 
 
Charismatic Chaos
 

Charismatic Chaos by John MacArthur
 
One of the best books dealing with Charismatic issues, MacArthur has provided the body of Christ with a biblical response to the contemporary debate over spiritual gifts, the health and wealth gospel, the faith movement, miracles, healing, and prophecy in the church. Teaching with sound hermeneutics, MacArthur lays down Scripture’s view. ~GBI Books
 
 
God's Lesser Glory
 

God’s Lesser Glory by Bruce Ware
 
Open theism, which denies that God can foreknow free human choices, dishonors God, distorts Scripture, damages faith, and if left unchecked, destroys churches and lives. Its errors are not peripheral but central. Therefore, I thank God for Bruce Ware’s loving, informed, penetrating, devastating critique of this profoundly injurious teaching. —John Piper Senior Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church

Pink answers these questions in this classic work, thoroughly expounding the areas of man’s depravity and impotence. You will gain a sound biblical theology with powerful implications for evangelizing the unsaved! ~GBI Books

Systematic Theology: Biblical & Historical

Systematic Theology: Biblical & Historical by Robert Culver
 
Systematic Theology’ by Robert Duncan Culver, a distinguished student of Scripture and an eleventh generation descendent of a Puritan who arrived on American shores in 1635, represents the labor of a lifetime.

Mayhue, Executive Vice President, The Master’s College and Seminary
 
 
Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine
 

Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem
 
Although Grudem is Charismatic and holds some odd views, this work is still a good resource. He includes topics not found in older works and shows keen research. Each chapter has study questions, a devotional hymn and references to the other major works. ~GBI Books
 
 
The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross
 

The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross by Leon Morris
 
This book is on its third revision, yet remains a standard textbook for pastors and students. Essentially it is a word study of the key terms used in salvation like blood, redemption, reconciliation, and justification. Definitely on the heavy side, but worth the effort. ~GBI Books

Demarest provides a stimulating and thought-provoking treatment of the major points in soteriology." — Dr. Trevor Craigen, Associate Professor of Theology, The Master's Seminary
 
 
The Doctrine of Justification
 

The Doctrine of Justification by James Buchanan
 
“When justification falls, all true knowledge of the grace of God in human life falls with it, and then as Luther said, the church itself falls…This is still the best textbook on its subject…” ~J. I. Packer
 
 
 
 

The Existence and Attributes of God by Stephen Charnock
 
Perhaps the best work on the topic in print, if not the largest, this book remains a favorite for pastors and those desiring to know God better. ~GBI Books

You will also find this book to be a trustworthy resource for counseling others. -Nick Amatuccio
 
 
The Nature of God 
 

The Nature of God by A. W. Pink
 
I’m very grateful for this fine new edition of Arthur Pink’s classic work on the Attributes of God. It is surely the finest work on the subject written in this century. Pink, whose works were never superficial or trite, did some of his best work in this superb and timeless volume. — John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church
 
 
The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit

The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit by Larry D. Pettegrew
 
One of the most difficult areas of biblical theology is that of how the ministry of the Holy Spirit differs from the Old Testament to the New Testament…. [Pettegrew] will certainly give all readers much to provoke them to a deeper and better understanding of what God's Word teaches about this vital subject. —John MacArthur Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church

After reading this book, you’ll know how spiritual gifts should operate within the church.-Nick Amatuccio
