The Envy of Eve: Finding Contentment in a Covetous World
Melissa B. Kruger

Christian Focus, 2012

What's truly at the heart of our desires? The Envy of Eve guides readers to understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of our problem: unbelief-a mistrust of God's sovereignty and goodness. An ideal resource for deeper study or group discussion.
  
  











  



  
Finally Alive
John Piper

Christian Focus, 2009

When Jesus said to Nicodemus, 'You must be born again', the devout and learned religious leader was unsure what Jesus meant. It would seem nothing has changed. Today 'born again Christians' fill churches that are seen as ineffectual at best, and even characterised by the 'mosaic' generation as 'unchristian'.The term 'born again' has been devalued both in society and in the church. Those claiming to be 'born again' live lives that are ...

Zack Eskwine brings you here, not a self-help guide, rather 'a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.'

Burning Hearts: Preaching to the Affections (Proclamation Trust)
Josh Moody, Robin Weekes

Christian Focus, 2014

Affection is often a neglected theme in our generation of Bible believing Christians. It has not always been so. Previous generations thought a great deal about the centrality of the heart in the Christian life and the need to preach to it. This book will prove a valuable resource as we learn about the place of the affections in our walk with Christ and in preaching Him to ourselves and others.
  
  











  



  
Judges: Such a Great Salvation (Focus on the Bible)
Dale Ralph Davis

Christian Focus, 2006

The Church has a problem with Judges, it is so earthy, puzzling, primitive and violent - so much so that the Church can barely stomach it. It falls under the category 'embarrassing scripture'. Such an attitude is, of course, wrong so Ralph Davis here makes Judges digestible by analysing the major literary and theological themes discovered in each section, providing a 'theocentric' exposition.
