"…it is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is all of grace, which means, free, gratis, for nothing." C.H. Spurgeon is best known for his reasonalble and rational sermons and teachings. He preached to thousands in England during the 1800s; many times in contradiction to the established church beliefs. All of Grace insights include: The salvation of God is for those who do not deserve it. Faith is the work of God's grace in us. Forgiveness leads to repentance. If you look to Christ for your beginnings, beware of looking to yourself for your endings. The life of your soul lies in faith; its health lies in love. Common and vivid illustrations such as limpets at the seaside, a cup by the fountain, and fighting a swarm of flies with a sword characterizes the simple yet eternal truths of the gospel as shared by C.H. Spurgeon, a Reformed Baptist preacher. Always humbly directing the focus on the God of all grace, the author beckons his readers to accept salvation as the free and for nothing promise from a faithful heavenly Father of love.

HE WHO SPOKE and wrote this message will be greatly disappointed if it does not lead many to the Lord Jesus. It is sent forth in childlike dependence upon the power of God the Holy Ghost, to use it in the conversion of millions, if so He pleases. No doubt many poor men and women will take up this little volume, and the Lord will visit them with grace. To answer this end, the very plainest language has been chosen, and many homely expressions have been used. But if those of wealth and rank should glance at this book, the Holy Ghost can impress them also; since that which can be understood by the unlettered is none the less attractive to the instructed. Oh that some might read it who will become great winners of souls! Who knows how many will find their way to peace by what they read here? A more important question to you, dear reader, is this--Will you be one of them? A certain man placed a fountain by the wayside, and he hung up a cup near to it by a little chain. He was told some time after that a great art-critic had found much fault with its design. "But," said he, "do many thirsty persons drink at it?" Then they told him that thousands of poor people, men, women, and children, slaked their thirst at this fountain; and he smiled and said, that he was little troubled by the critic's observation, only he hoped that on some sultry summer's day the critic himself might fill the cup, and he refreshed, and praise the name of the Lord. Here is my fountain, and here is my cup: find fault if you please; but do drink of the water of life. I only care for this. I had rather bless the soul of the poorest crossing-sweeper, or rag-gatherer, than please a prince of the blood, and fail to convert him to God. Reader, do you mean business in reading these pages? If so, we are agreed at the outset; but nothing short of your finding Christ and Heaven is the business aimed at here. Oh that we may seek this together! I do so by dedicating this little book with prayer. Will not you join me by looking up to God, and asking Him to bless you while you read? Providence has put these pages in your way, you have a little spare time in which to read them, and you feel willing to give your attention to them. These are good signs. Who knows but the set time of blessing is come for you? At any rate, "The Holy Ghost saith, Today, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon tops virtually every list of the most famous and influential preachers of the English-speaking world. More than a century after his death, thousands of his sermons remain in print and in demand. What can explain the power and substance of this ministry? While many point to his rhetorical power or infectious personality, the true power of Spurgeon's ministry was his unrelenting commitment to Scripture and to the Gospel. This revised and updated version of Spurgeon's devotional and evangelistic All of Grace will hopefully introduce thousands of new readers to Spurgeon and to the riches of his ministry. R. ALBERT MOHLER, JR. President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary In All of Grace, Charles Spurgeon uncovers the core of Christianity - the life-giving grace of God. I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for answers to life's puzzling problems." CHRISTIAN GEORGE Assistant Professor of Historical Theology Curator of the Spurgeon Library Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary It was the theologian Helmut Thielicke who once said, "Sell all that you have and buy Spurgeon"! And with good reason: God gifted Charles Haddon Spurgeon with a fabulous gift of communication--always crisp and clear, winsome and pungent, and biblical through and through. His book All of Grace is no exception: it is one of the best introductions to the nature of the foundation of the Christian life, and how God's unmerited love and grace lies at the foundation of all of the believer's life in Christ. Warmly recommended!" MICHAEL A.G. HAYKIN Professor of Church History & Biblical Spirituality The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky Spurgeon's All of Grace has been a Christian classic for decades. It has had a transforming impact on hundreds who have read it. Recently, one of the members of my Sunday school class who discovered it has read it at least a score of times. It has had a transforming effect on his understanding of God, has given him deeper gratitude for his salvation, and increased the purity and intensity of his worship. This faithful rendering of Spurgeon's passion and theology now given in updated language is a welcome addition to the growing interest in Spurgeon again. I recommend the book heartily and hope it has a pervasive impact. TOM NETTLES Professor of Church History The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky The noted German theologian, Helmut Thielicke, once said, "Sell all the books that you have and buy Spurgeon." I share the German theologian's estimation of Spurgeon, and that is why I heartily commend this work, All of Grace, by the Prince of Preachers himself. I am grateful to Patrick T. Dolan for keeping All of Grace in print. As you read through this great work, you will be grateful as well." JASON K. ALLEN President Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Never does one go wrong in reading about the salvation God offers to sinners, and seldom does one go wrong in reading Charles Spurgeon. I have been a believer for more than four decades, and I confess that I sometimes take grace for granted. Reading this work again has reminded me that God's amazing grace must drive me to tell others about His deep love for sinners.

Charles Spurgeon The descendant of several generations of Independent ministers, he was born at Kelvedon, Essex, and became a Baptist in 1850. In the same year he preached his first sermon, and in 1852 he was appointed paster of the Baptist congregation at Waterbeach. In 1854 he went to Southwark, where his sermons drew such crowds that a new church, the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Newington Causeway, had to be built for him. Apart from his preaching activites he founded a pastors' college, an orphanage, and a colportage association for the propagation of uplifting literature. Spurgeon was a strong Calvinist. He had a controversy in 1864 with the Evangelical party of the Church of England for remaining in a Church that taught Baptismal Regeneration, and also estranged considerable sections of his own community by rigid opposition to the more liberal methods of Biblical exegesis. These differences led to a rupture with the Baptist Union in 1887. He owed his fame as a preacher to his great oratorical gifts, humour, and shrewd common sense, which showed itself especially in his treatment of contemporary problems. Among his works are The Saint and his Saviour (1857), Commenting and Commentaries (1876) and numerous volumes of sermons (translated into many languages). Jonathan Edwards (October 5, 1703 - March 22, 1758) was a Christian preacher and theologian. Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest intellectuals. Edwards's theological work is broad in scope, but he is often associated with Reformed theology, the metaphysics of theological determinism, and the Puritan heritage.

Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British minister known as the "Prince of Preachers" whose writings are considered classics and are still in high-demand today. He preached to over 10 million people in his lifetime and published thousands of sermons, besides starting a College for Pastors as well as orphanages for boys and girls. This special 3-in-1 edition includes some of his most popular works that expounded the Gospel: ALL OF GRACE - One of C. H. Spurgeon's most well-known and beloved works, "All of Grace" sets forth the Good News of God's grace to sinners. An evangelistic work that uses Scripture, stories and experiences to share God's grace and justification by faith in an easy-to-understand and personal way. ACCORDING TO PROMISE - written in a similar style to "All of Grace," this work expounds who believers are in Christ and the great promises available because of Jesus. IN DEFENSE OF CALVINISM - a brief but important reflection on Calvinism. Not so much a work of apologetics as a thoughtful summary of the important truths of Calvinism.

David Winkler wächst in Anchorage, Alaska, auf, ein stiller Junge mit einer Vorliebe für Schnee und die Schönheit der Eiskristalle. Manchmal kann er Ereignisse sehen, bevor sie eintreten werden – ein Mann mit einer Hutschachtel wird von einem Bus angefahren werden, er wird sich in eine Frau in einem Supermarkt verlieben. Als David davon träumt, daß seine neugeborene Tochter in einer Flut ums Leben kommt, während er versucht sie zu retten, flieht er panisch aus Cleveland, wo die Familie inzwischen lebt. Kann er so den Lauf der Dinge ändern? Mittellos, allein und ohne Gewißheit, ob seine Tochter überlebt hat – der Ohio ist tatsächlich in Cleveland über die Ufer getreten –, wohnt Winkler auf einer karibischen Insel bei einem Ehepaar mit einer Tochter, die sich um ihn kümmern. Schließlich ist es die Tochter, die ihn in die Welt zurückholt, um nach den Menschen zu suchen, die er verlassen hat. 25 Jahre nach seiner Flucht kehrt Winkler zurück nach Amerika. Anthony Doerr ist nicht nur ein Autor mit einer meisterhaften Beobachtungsgabe für Menschen und ihre Empfindungen und mit einem ungewöhnlichen Mitgefühl für die menschliche Verletzlichkeit. Seine Beschreibungen der Natur, der Landschaft, des Wassers, der Gerüche und Farben sind von einer großen Magie und überwältigenden Schönheit. Nach dem preisgekrönten Erzählungsband «Der Muschelsammler» beweist Anthony Doerr mit seinem ersten Roman, daß er ein herausragendes literarisches Talent besitzt.

For centuries Indigenous Nations and people endured a holocaust of unimaginable proportions, much of the suffering and betrayal coming from those who claimed to be representing the Christian God. If we desire reconciliation and friendship with Native people and Nations, how do we build those bridges? Knowing that historically we have not loved our first neighbors well, how do we now communicate grace? Can we learn from the tragedies and failures of the past? Are we willing to pave the way of reconciliation with our tears? These questions and more we ponder throughout this book. What we are learning is the gift of many friends representing many tribes and cultures who have graciously and generously shared their stories and their hearts with us. Now we pass along some of our gleanings to you. We hope it will set you to thinking and even unpacking your baggage, to sort it out and pack again-wherever you might be going in this life. God help us all to travel light and may we always move to the music of God's extravagant grace. About the Farrants... We are simply two very ordinary people given the extraordinary privilege of spending time with people of other cultures who have been and are still our teachers. We are not the Indigenous voice. They have voices of their own. We hope the offering of this little book will encourage you to listen to those voices. Currently, Bruce serves as coordinator of Native American/First Nations Ministries with Mission to North America. We make our home in Maryville, TN, just west of what the Cherokee call the Shakonohey, Land of the Blue Smoke (Great Smoky Mountains). God has blessed us with four wonderful children and eleven grandchildren. Contact Us: www.onechurchonetribe.com or [email protected]

We all make choices based on the information we have, when this information is Truth that cannot be denied we can be bold in our choice, as we know it is right.

This book was written out of a desire to share with others who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease what I have experienced as Grace’s caregiver and friend. I wanted to capture the emotions, the expected and unexpected issues, the painful times as well as the humorous and loving moments that Grace and I have shared as a result of this disease. This is not meant to be a handbook for dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, but I hope that by sharing my feelings and experiences, readers may recognize that they are not alone on this particular journey.

View: 8436

In this collection of sermons, Dr. Albert Walsh, after more than three decades of pastoral ministry, presents the gospel message as the Christ-centered proclamation of hope for all those who sojourn along the path of life. Walsh's sermons speak directly to those who hold faith in Christ, but they also speak with force to those who are searching for the meaning and purpose of life as the gift of a gracious God. This collection of sermons offers the reader a word of genuine hope in times of trial, struggle, and in the face of the innumerable sufferings--both small and great--we so often experience in life. These sermons cover the whole of the life of Christ from his incarnation to his death, resurrection, ascension, and promised return in glory to offer spiritual enrichment for all.
