With honesty, humor, and compassion, author Greg Dutcher addresses a contemporary problem that most Christians aren’t even aware of: idolatry. He reminds his readers that there is a battle to be fought, and what is at stake is our lives, the lives of others, and, most importantly, the reputation of Christ Himself. With winsome anecdotes, references to modern culture, biblical references, and nods to respected theologians such as Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, and C. S. Lewis, Dutcher makes us aware of the problem, helps us isolate it, and then gives us the weapons to contain it. Study questions at the end of each chapter make this a great individual or group Bible study.
Pastor and author Greg Dutcher turns the spotlight on Satan, the ultimate Enemy of all believers. In a practical and down-to-earth way, he exposes the truth and dispels the myths. Youll gain insights into Satans tactics and goals on earth, Jesus response to Satan, and the fullness of Jesus victory over the Enemy. Perfect for individual or small group study. Includes questions for personal reflection, Scripture, and relevant quotes.
Something wonderful is happening in Western Evangelicalism. A resurgence of Calvinism is changing lives, transforming churches, and spreading the gospel. The books are great, the sermons are life-changing, the music is inspirational, and the conferences are astonishing. Will this continue or will we, who are part of it all, end up destroying it? That depends on how we live the message. As "insiders" of the Calvinist resurgence, there are at least eight ways we can mess everything up. -By loving calvinism as an end in itself -By becoming theologians instead of disciples -By loving God’s sovereignty more than God himself -By losing an urgency in evangelism -By refusing to learn from non-Calvinists -By tidying up the Bible’s “loose ends” -By being a bunch of arrogant know-it-alls -By scoffing at the emotional hang-ups others have with Calvinism
