References: Genesis 40A great disservice has been done to the cause of Christ by those who have tended to suggest that Christianity is all brightness and laughter. Such a perspective is neither true to the biblical record, nor to the human experience. The joy of which the Bible speaks is not found in isolation from the rigors of life. James encourages us to "count it all joy" when we face trials of various kinds. The studies contained in this album make it very clear that Christians grieve, too. They, also, seek to provide a biblical framework for dealing with affliction, trial, and disappointment. Underpinning it all is the doctrine of God's providence, which affords the believer the opportunity to rest in the awareness that our times are in His hands. This album may well prove to be a great help to friends and neighbors who are trying to make sense of some of life's storms.
If God has redeemed us from our sin and given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us against sin, then why do we go on sinning? In his book, The Enemy Within, Kris Lundgaard addresses this plaguing question by drawing upon the writings of Puritan author John Owen.
The gold Lungaard mines from John Owen’s work gives us hope, renewed love for Christ, and an approach to holiness through faith in Him in spite of our sinful state.
By revisiting the profound writings of John Owen, Lungaard updates the exposition, outlines, arguments and illustrations to bring this rich understanding of the Bible to the contemporary world.
