Interview with Peter Mead on Knowing the Truth with Kevin Boling

Peter MeadPeter Mead recently appeared as a guest on Knowing the Truth with Kevin Boling to discuss his new book Pleased to Dwell: A Biblical Introduction to the Incarnation. You can stream or download the interview here:  LINK

About the Book:
At the centre of heaven is Christ, lovingly adored as the forever Lord of all. At the centre of Christmas is Christ, frail and cradled in the tender arms of a young mother. How can the two be put together? Heavenly glory and human frailty? That is the real wonder of Christmas.Pleased to Dwell is an energetic biblical introduction to Christmas. It is an invitation to ponder the Incarnation, and a God who was pleased to dwell with us.

Building anticipation with the great themes of the Old Testament, enjoying the remarkably distinct birth narratives of Matthew, then Luke, before surveying some great New Testament passages, Pleased to Dwell is an engaging introduction to the wonder of the Word becoming flesh and dwelling among us. This book offers a wealth of ideas for preachers, an easy access mini-reference tool for Bible students, and an enjoyable cover-to-cover read for everyone. Twenty-four short chapters would make a great advent devotional, but this book is not just for Christmas. God’s Son stepped into our world and that changes every day of the year!

Praise for Pleased to Dwell:

“This book is perfect food for the heart for all of us who long for a richer understanding of the birth of The King!”
-Joseph M. Stowell ~ President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“What a really useful resource! As I read through it, I found that ideas for carol service talks just kept leaping off its pages.”
-Rico Tice ~ Author, Christianity Explored & Associate Minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London

About Peter Mead:
Peter Mead is director of Cor Deo, a mentored ministry training programme based in Chippenham, England. He is on the leadership team of a church plant and leads the Bible Teachers & Preachers Networks at the European Leadership Forum. He studied at Multnomah Biblical Seminary and received his Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Edgar illustrates the depth of the prayer as he shows it in the original context, and shows what that means for us in our context today and in the future. The Lord’s Prayer defines our faith and defines the Biblical worldview.

Listen to an Interview with Sam Storms on Knowing the Truth with Kevin Boling

Sam StormsChristian Focus author Sam Storms was recently a guest on Knowing the Truth with Kevin Boling. The interview focuses on Sam’s recent book Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative. You can stream the interview here:  LINK

About the Book:
The second coming of Christ is a matter of sharp disagreement amongst Christians. Many hold to premillennialism: that Christ’s return will be followed by 1,000 years before the final judgement, a belief popularised in the popular Left Behind novels. However, premillennialism is not the only option for Christians. In this important new book, Sam Storms provides a biblical rationale for amillennialism; the belief that 1,000 years mentioned in the book of Revelation is symbolic with the emphasis being the King and his Kingdom.

About the Author:
Sam is the Lead Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and the President of Enjoying God Ministries (www.samstorms.com). He and his wife Ann have been married for 41 years and are the parents of two grown daughters and have four grandchildren.

Where to Buy:

The archive of this interview is available here: LINK

About the Book:
It happens little by little. . . Even in the context of a very faithful ministry, a pastor may be at risk of a gradual-but ultimately debilitating-downfall. Al Martin speaks from years of experience as he guides pastors to identify warning signs of dangerous paths:

  • Backsliding-a spiritual decline manifested first in the prayer closet.
  • Burnout-erosion of one’s mental, emotional, psychological, and physical resiliency and buoyancy.
  • Washout-the loss of credibility among the people.

About the Author:
Albert N. Martin served as pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Montville, New Jersey, for more than forty years and he taught Pastoral Theology in the Trinity Ministerial Academy for twenty years. Esteemed by leading theologians and pastors, his preaching is the subject of a book, My Heart for Thy Cause.

About A Neglected Grace:
Whether your home includes a single mother with her children, three generations of a family, the immediate family and Uncle Bob, who is living in the spare room, or the traditional mother, father, and 2.5 kids, it is our joyful responsibility to lead our home in worshipping the Lord. In the history of the church, family worship has been one of the Christian family’s strongest characteristics. In the last century, however, this great tradition of the faith has diminished.

In A Neglected Grace Pastor Jason Helopoulos graciously calls church leaders and individual members to reclaim the practice of family worship as a glorious expression of our Christian faith. This indispensable means of grace directs our families to seek and enjoy the love and beauty of Christ daily.

About the Author:
Jason Helopoulos is Assistant Pastor of University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan. Married to Leah, they have two children, Gracen and Ethan.

About 66 Books One Story:
If you’ve read the Bible, you probably know some of the important battles, a good chunk of the life of Jesus, maybe a Psalm or two – but what do you know about the minor prophets and the epistles? Do you have some loose ends that need tying up? This is where a book like this helps. The Bible has one author – God – so we need to see the Bible as a whole, as God’s Word. Every book of the Bible is the breath of God and the plan of Salvation spans all of Scripture. In this Bible overview each book of the Bible is summarised; background given; themes and theology explained.

About the Author:
Paul Reynolds is an Assistant Pastor at First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman. He and his wife Rachael have two young children, Jude and Alice. Paul enjoys photography, and writing about, watching and coaching baseball.
