Free this Friday Only! Vertical Church: What Every Heart Longs for. What Every Church Can Be by James MacDonald

Infighting, backbiting, heartbreaking, frustrating … church.

Though exceptions do exist, the reality is that church in America is failing one life at a time. Somewhere between pathetically predictable and shamefully entertaining, sadly sentimental and rarely authentic, church has become worst of all … godless.

Vertical Church points to a new day where God is the seeker, and we are the ones found. In Vertical Church God shows up, and that changes everything.

If you want to experience God as you never have before and witness His hand at work, if you want to wake up to the first thought, “Thank God it’s Sunday,” if you’re ready to feel your heart beat faster as you drive to your place of worship … then devour and digest the lessons of Vertical Church.

Celebrate Spurgeon’s 180th birthday

1

Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1894) converted to Christianity at the age of fifteen. By the time he was twenty-two, he was the most popular preacher of his time. He frequently spoke to crowds numbering over 10,000 in the days before sound systems or other electronic amplification.

Well known for his eloquent but familiar style, Charles Haddon Spurgeon won a large following in 19th Century Britain and his popularity among Christians of all denominations continues to this day. After his preaching began at age nineteen he quickly became very well-known throughout England and delivered nearly thirty-six hundred sermons. A prolific writer, many of Spurgeon’s works remain in print to this day.

Sometimes called the “prince of preachers” because of the richness of his utterance in interpreting the word of God, he ministered to thousands in London’s Metropolitan Tabernacle for decades. His popular daily devotional Morning and Evening has been a source of spiritual supply to countless believers. Always taking his subject directly from the Bible and always focusing on Christ’s glory and preeminence, Spurgeon puts himself aside and ushers his readers directly into the Lord’s presence to enjoy the comfort and encouragement only He can provide.

Not everything he said and did was widely accepted. Spurgeon was also ridiculed and criticized by preachers from across the Christian spectrum. But whether dealing with this criticism,  suffering from gout, caring for his invalid wife, battling depression, or carrying a burden of personal tragedy, Spurgeon refused to cave to the overwhelming adversity in his life.

To Celebrate Spurgeon’s 180th birthday we have the 37 Volume Olive Tree Charles Haddon Spurgeon Collection discounted this week.  This collection includes his Sermons, Autobiography, and several Devotionals and eBooks written by C.H. Spurgeon.  We also have the Parallel Commentary on the New Testament (Also by John Wesley and Matthew Henry) and the Parallel Classic Commentary on the Psalms (also by John Calvin and Matthew Henry).

Lastly, there are several more titles discounted to celebrate Charles Spurgeon and John Wesley’s birthdays this week.  You can find them here.

 

Who was John Wesley?

John Wesley (1703-1791). Engraved by J.Pofselwhite and published

John Wesley (June 17, 1703 – March 2, 1791) was a Christian theologian who, with his brother Charles Wesley and fellow cleric George Whitefield, is credited with the foundation of Methodism. He helped to form and organize small Christian groups that developed personal accountability, discipleship and religious instruction. He also appointed itinerant evangelists to travel and preach like he did and to care for the small groups of people. Under Wesley’s direction, Methodists became leaders in many social issues of the day, including prison reform and abolitionism.

Throughout his life, Wesley remained within the established Anglican church, insisting that the Methodist movement lay well within its tradition. He became widely respected, and by the end of his life, had been described as “the best loved man in England”.

Wesley died on Wednesday March 2, 1791, in his eighty-eighth year. As he lay dying, his friends gathered around him, Wesley grasped their hands and said repeatedly, “Farewell, farewell.” At the end, summoning all his remaining strength, he cried out, “The best of all is, God is with us,” lifted his arms and raised his feeble voice again, repeating the words, “The best of all is, God is with us.”

To celebrate John Wesley’s birthday today, we highlight several titles.  John Wesley’s Teachings, Complete 4 Volume Set, the Wesley Study Bible NotesParallel Commentary on the New Testament (Also by Charles Spurgeon and Matthew Henry), and Renew My Heart.

Thanks to our partners at the Wesley Center, we also have several other John Wesley Writings available for The Bible Study App.
