I haven’t been doing many of the book promos lately. But I need more clicks to WTS Bookstore. My numbers are sagging and I need free books, for the love of Pete.
This is a great sale that is only good until February 4th. Yeah, Friday so you better get on it!
Phil Ryken, former pastor at 10th Presbyterian in Philly and current President of Wheaton has a book on 1 Corinthians 13 called Loving the Way Jesus Loves. The blurbs are great. The prices greater. Only $7 for a copy. If you buy 5 or more it is only $6. (there is another great deal after the recommendations)
“There are many expositions of 1 Corinthians 13, the Love Chapter, but not many where at every point the preacher shows how God’s love in Christ Jesus is the very best exposition and truest embodiment of love. Unpacking the love chapter through this prism, Phil Ryken lends great clarity to Paul’s meditation on love and shows how such love drives us back to renewed adoration of Christ. Reflecting on how Christ, by his life and death, makes 1 Corinthians 13 leap from the page drives home the frequent lovelessness of our own lives, strips bare all notions of love that are little more than sentimental twaddle, and provides a concrete robustness to love that is part and parcel of trusting and following Christ.”
- D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“Jesus said, ‘By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’ But what does it mean to love others? By looking at the love of Jesus in the light of 1 Corinthians 13, Phil Ryken gives us the Biblical answer. Loving the Way Jesus Loves is surely one of the most heart searching books I have ever read. This book is must reading for all who want to grow in Christian love.”
- Jerry Bridges, author, The Pursuit of Holiness
“As usual, Phil Ryken hides his deep scholarship behind readable prose. But the footnotes reveal that he draws on some of the most penetrating scholarly treatments of St Paul’s text. He combines all that with pastoral experience and insight. The result is a masterful, accessible exposition of this great chapter.”
- Timothy J. Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; bestselling author, The Reason for God
“Phil Ryken is not only a scholar; he is a magnificent expositor of God’s Word. We already benefit from his massive commentaries on so many books of the Bible, and now he turns his attention, both as scholar and as pastor, to the message of 1 Corinthians 13. This is a gift to the entire church.”
- R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
