Summary

Normally, such a book written for believers would be absolutely unnecessary, for the Bible clearly says, "No one born of God commits sin; for God's nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God" (1 John 3:9). 
However, we know that a member of the church in Corinth did commit adultery and was disciplined. We also know that David fell into this same sin. The many warnings of the Apostle Paul to believers against adultery and fornication would leave the reader of the Epistles in no doubt that he wrote as one who knew that a converted person could fall into the sin of adultery and fornication. 
It is common knowledge that in our generation, some of God's servants who, without doubt, have truly believed in the Lord Jesus, have fallen into adultery and fornication. So, a believer can be tempted, yield to temptation and commit adultery or fornication. If you want to be honest, you will acknowledge that you have come close to falling, or have actually fallen, in either thought, word or deed.  
There are many who can say, "Thanks be to God, I have never committed adultery in act since I believed in the Lord Jesus." We thank the Lord for all such. That is only to be expected. However, the Lord Jesus is looking for those of whom He can say, "This one has never committed adultery in thought since he believed." I do hope He can say that of you. 
Our prayer is that in the course of reading this book, you should know the deliverance of the Lord from the sin of adultery and fornication in thought, word and deed. The Lord Jesus, the Deliverer, is near to deliver you and to enable you to walk in that deliverance for the rest of your life until He comes.

    Did God Really Command Genocide?...

    A common objection to belief in the God of the Bible is that a good, kind, and loving deity would never command the wholesale slaughter of nations. Even Christians have a hard time stomaching such a thought, and many avoid reading those difficult Old Testament passages that make us squeamish. Instead, we quickly jump to the enemy-loving, forgiving Jesus of the New Testament. And yet, the question doesn't go away. Did God really command genocide? Is the command to "utterly destroy" morally unjustifiable? Is it literal? Are the issues more complex and nuanced than we realize?In the tradition of his popular Is God a Moral Monster?, Paul Copan teams up with Matthew Flannagan to tackle some of the most confusing and uncomfortable passages of Scripture. Together they help the Christian and nonbeliever alike understand the biblical, theological, philosophical, and ethical implications of Old Testament warfare passages. Pastors, youth pastors, campus ministers, apologetics readers, and laypeople will find that this book both enlightens and equips them for serious discussion of troubling spiritual questions.

    The system of theology known as Calvinism has been immensely influential for the past five hundred years, but it is often encountered negatively as a fatalistic belief system that confines human freedom and renders human action and choice irrelevant. Taking us beyond the caricatures, Michael Horton invites us to explore the teachings of Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, by showing us how it is biblical and God-centered, leading us to live our lives for the glory of God. Horton explores the historical roots of Calvinism, walking readers through the distinctive known as the “Five Points,” and encouraging us to consider its rich resources for faith and practice in the 21st Century. As a companion to Roger Olson’s Against Calvinism, readers will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

    “Regency romantic suspense at its page-turning best.” —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK! 
    “It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.” 
    Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid. 
    Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions. 
    Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.
