The Sovereignty of God
This is a series of talks given on a church weekend away dedicated to dealing with the issue of God’s sovereignty.
Evangelism and The Sovereignty of God
by J.I. Packer
If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelise? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? In this classic study, J. I. Packer shows how false both these attitudes are.
In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he demonstrates how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.
The Pleasures of God
by John Piper
God is the happiest being in the universe. To know him in his pleasures is to see him as he truly is. This is the proposition put forward by John Piper. The things that make God glad are the measures of his greatness. John here studies 10 ways which God reveals gives him pleasure.
John Piper was reading through a classic book that was instrumental in the conversions of Charles Wesley and George Whitefield – The Life of God in the Soul of Man by Henry Scougal – when he came across a key that was to turn his life upside down. He read ‘The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love.’
