The Collected Christian Essentials: Catechism is perfect for daily devotions, personal study, and prayer with others. The catechism— the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer—has sustained and nurtured every generation of believers, directing their faith, hope, and love. It helps Christians read, pray, and live God’s word. By giving Christians God’s word to give back to him, it plants seeds of his word and cultivates them to full growth. The Collected Christian Essentials: Catechism brings the church’s ancient catechism to a new generation.
“These basic texts have been the essentials of theological education for centuries and every Christian should know them by heart. This volume makes it possible to carry them around in a user-friendly format that will be of immense help to busy people who need to be inspired again by the basic teachings of our faith.”
—Gerald Bray, research professor of divinity, Beeson Divinity School
Written from a confessionally Reformed perspective in dialogue with the great creeds of the church, The Lord Jesus Christ provides a thorough and trustworthy guide to understanding Jesus and his salvific work. Jesus is the divine Son of God who has taken on human nature in the incarnation. As prophet, priest, and king, he leads his people in a new exodus. In The Lord Jesus Christ, Brandon D. Crowe reflects on Christ’s person and work. Crowe traces christological concerns throughout the Old and New Testaments and church history and then presents systematic and practical implications. Through a combination of biblical, historical, and theological study, Crowe provides a fresh and robust statement of who Christ is and what he has done.
“Brandon Crowe has produced a substantial systematic statement of Christology for our day, uniting exegetical rigor, historical sensitivity, and theological profundity as well as igniting proclamation and mission by giving the church plenty of fuel for our highest end: knowing Jesus Christ.”
—Harrison Perkins, pastor, Oakland Hills Community Church (OPC)
This is the story of Christ’s nearness to John Andrew Bryant’s own suffering. In his words: this book is “my mental breakdown, my journey to the psych ward, my long, slow, painful recovery—and how Christ will use even our agony and despair to turn us into servants and guests of the mercy offered in his gospel.
We cannot answer suffering. And yet suffering demands an answer. If Jesus is the answer to suffering, what kind of answer is Jesus? Everything that could be taken from a person was taken from him. The worst things a person could be made to see and feel were seen and felt by Christ.
All of this came to a point in the nails driven into his hands and became a word that cannot be unspoken—his body broken and his blood poured out for us. Suffering has been made holy by Christ’s proximity to it.”
“While the faithful will appreciate Bryant’s efforts to explore a nuanced relationship between mental illness and faith, what stands out the most are his painfully visceral descriptions of mental suffering … rendered with an unsparing honesty that jumps off the page.”
—Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“This is a stunning book, so rare and so beautiful. I cannot recommend it highly enough. John Bryant does two things that are very hard to do at the same time. He represents the raw agony and disorientation of healing from OCD. And he puts this struggle within a hopeful theological frame. I cried a lot during this book. It will encourage those who suffer and help others to understand the struggle. The book is honest, vulnerable, gripping, and hopeful at the same time. Read this book.”
—Matthew A. LaPine, director of Christian education at Citylight Church in Omaha, NE; author of The Logic of the Body
