A House for My Name

The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. In this Canon Press bestseller, Leithart shows that the Bible is the best story.

For many Christians, sadly, the Old Testament is merely a jumble of moralistic stories and weird rituals, genealogies, and historical chronicles. What is the point of it all, and what does it have to do with Jesus?

In this short and readable book, Leithart gives a sweeping overview of the Bible, its stories, and the patterns and symbols that recur throughout it, highlighting the ways many of the little stories look forward to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Himself.

Although the book is lots of fun, the lessons it teaches are far from trivial. The Gospels say again and again Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. Christians need to learn to read the Old Testament the way Jesus and the Apostles read it, so that we can delight in the word of God and encounter Him in its stories. This book can be read easily by high school students and includes review questions for anyone who wants to use it in their curriculum. However, it will also give anyone familiar with Scripture much to think about. "And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Lk 24:27).

Also includes the Question and Answer Book

A Son to Me: An Exposition of 1&2 Samuel

The books of Samuel—familiar stories like David and Goliath, Saul and Jonathan, Absalom and Joab—look forward to Jesus, the son of David.

In this book, Peter Leithart offers a typological reading of Samuel as a unified book. By giving careful attention to the book's literary structures and patterns of types and antitypes, Leithart reveals the deeper meanings within the text. Not only does he show how the life of David not only has lessons for us in how to live our own lives, but he also shows how the books of Samuel look forward to the suffering and glorification of Jesus Himself.

 

The Modernized Geneva Bible: New Testament

The 1599 Geneva Bible is a remarkable Bible for many reasons: it was the first English Bible translated entirely from the Hebrew and the Greek, it was the first Bible with chapter and verse divisions, it was the first with a legible font, and the first with maps, notes, and chronologies and indices. Most importantly, it was intended not for displaying in churches, but for family reading.

With this in mind, the Modernized Geneva Bible (MGB) updates archaic syntax, spelling, and vocabulary of the first iconic Geneva version, allowing you to read without distraction the most important English Bible of the Reformation: The Geneva went into battle with the Puritans in the English Civil War, the Geneva made enemies of popes and kings across Europe, and the Geneva even went to America with the Pilgrims. 


But the MGB New Testament is not a facsimile edition intended for scholars of the Reformation. The thirteen thin volumes of the MGB New Testament are meant for one thing only: to be pulled off the shelf and read again and again; to be dog-eared and written in; to be consumed. We Christians learn to desire the pure milk of the Word as newborn infants (1 Pet. 2:2), for without feeding our souls we cannot grow spiritually.

Every design decision for this MGB New Testament was made to encourage daily Bible reading:

  • Readers’ format makes the Bible easy to read compared to a typical two-columned Bible with economy-size font;
  • Unlike most other readers’ editions, the MGB retains chapter and verse markings to allow you to keep track of Bible reading plans or sermon references;
  • The thirteen thin volumes are easy to finish in a sitting or two (an average reader can complete the shortest volume in 30 minutes, the longest in just over 2 hours);
  • Creamy text stock and flexible paperback bindings are easy to hold;
  • Lined note pages and reading logs for each volume allow you to make the MGB New Testament your own;
  • Beautiful, textured, and foil-stamped slipcase makes the MGB NT elegant and easy to store.

The Geneva’s original translators—Englishmen in exile from their homeland in Geneva—followed the work of William Tyndale, who famously vowed that he would help even the lowly farm boys to know more Scripture than the scholars of his time. Amen and amen!

The 27 books of the New Testament are separated into thirteen slim volumes for the MGB:

  1. Matthew (96 pgs)
  2. Mark (72 pgs)
  3. Luke (104 pgs)
  4. John (80 pgs)
  5. Acts (104 pgs)
  6. Romans (48 pgs)
  7. Corinthians (72 pgs)
  8. Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians (48 pgs)
  9. Colossians, Philemon, and Thessalonians (48 pgs)
  10. Timothy and Titus (48 pgs)
  11. Hebrews (48 pgs)
  12. James, Peter, and Jude (48 pgs)
  13. Epistles of John & Revelation (80 pgs)

 

The Victory According to Mark: An Exposition of the Second Gospel

What do the words "Gospel" and "Son of God" mean? We are so familiar with them that we fail to look at what they meant in the original context.

Mark's Gospel is sometimes assumed to be the least interesting or helpful gospel because it is the shortest and speaks in a plain and direct style. Mark Horne helps us better appreciate this gospel's goals by highlighting features not immediately apparent to the modern eye.

Horne uses its Old Testament and first-century context to point out the typological roles that Jesus, John, and the disciples fulfill as the new leaders of their nation, a period when the old Israel was both restored and redefined. He shows the gospel's intricate structures of miracle cycles and other events that bring out the major themes of calling and restoration, all playing into the kingship and triumph of Christ.

This devotional-style commentary enables the reader to see through the gospel of Mark's humble exterior into the riches that lie beneath.

Joy at the End of the Tether: The Inscrutable Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

This is a book for every fool who loves Jesus.

The book of Ecclesiastes is confusing to many believers, who see it as a debate between an untrustworthy nihilist and a genuinely wise man who trust in God instead of giving way to despair. However, Douglas Wilson takes issue with this interpretation, arguing that the author of Ecclesiastes is looking at the world with biblically informed vision. Because God is sovereign and will one day judge all men and restore the world, believers can work, rejoice, marry, eat, and worship God in hope.

Great Book

We bought for all the elders at our church, and then bought another 20 copies for our wives and other people in the church.

Biblical, practical, and addresses our current situation.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

One of the Most Important Books on Christian Leadership

I'm going to be recommending this book to a lot of pastors, fathers, and Christian leaders. Biblical, insightful, and impactful.

A Must Read for Church Leadership

This book is worthy of a formal review. But for this purpose, I will only say that this is a must read for any in church leadership. I intend to take my elders and deacons through it for years to come.

Practically though, anyone I believe would benefit from the simple and practical lessons communicated in classic Rigney style.

Read and enjoy and read again.

ND Wilson spins a fascinating story in league with the fantasy greats. It's a series I can feel good about handing to my kids, highly recommend!

Insightful and instructive!

Every Christian leader must read this book! From fathers in the home to pastoral leaders, Rigney’s work provides insight into the methods of sabotage that faithful leaders will encounter. In addition to exposing the problems, Rigney provides solutions and guidance to help leaders remain calm, focused, and resolved to lead the way God has called.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Do yourself a favor and pick this book up!

I absolutely love this book! My reading life was changed for the better a few years ago after reading Adler's How to Read a Book and I was actually close to giving it a reread when this came out. After reading this, I am convinced that this is a better read, especially as a Christian, and it sums up in a more succinct way what Adler was communicating. I also think it gives more helpful and practical advice for the average reader that will help them jumpstart their love of reading or will strengthen the joy the seasoned reader has.

I recommend this to anyone. I read portions of it aloud to my wife and kids and we had great discussions on how to build our reading skills and get more out of our time in good books and more importantly the Bible.

Godly, Manly Leadership is Needed

This book is excellent! We need Godly, manly leadership now more than ever and this book will help us as men to uncover the things that weigh us down and hinder us from being able to fulfill what God has for us as men.

My Wife Loved it!

I bought this for my wife for Mother's Day and she has thoroughly enjoyed it. Every so often she shared snippets from the book (as she was reading it) and expressed gratitude for the wisdom she learned from it. She also reflected on the grace that God showed her through our years as parents and realized that today is always a good day to learn something new on parenting by God's promises. We're both grateful for the way that God uses others to sharpen us through good books. Thank you Rachel!

A Companion to The Case for Christian Nationalism

This isa terrific guide for cursive writing for my 2nd grader. Unless I've missed it, I wish there were a teacher guide. But so far, he's just picked it up everyday and gets writing! I love the simplicity of it also

One of the Best Leadership Resources I've Ever Read

I realize the title sounds over the top, but having been in Organizational Development and in the pastoral ministry for ten years, this really is the best leadership resource I've read. Rigney is short, to the point, and able to pack so much wisdom in such tight places, I will come back again and again to help myself and others.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Free Curriculum Samples - Homeschool Bundles (Grades 1-8)

Chapter 5 worth the price of admission on its own

Rigney distills Friedman's work into simple and understandable language and then gives it legs by demonstrating how the principles play out in everyday life. He brings the concept of "emotional sabotage" to light by demonstrating how subversively it occurs, often without its victims realizing it. The temptation to be emotionally steered and manipulated by others (called "triangulation" by Friedman) who are often emotionally immature themselves, must be faithfully resisted. The problem (or benefit!) with reading this book is that you will begin to see it happening everywhere! This is a concise and helpful book not just for leaders, but for anyone seeking to faithfully follow Jesus in an age of emotional sabotage.

Interesting quotes

I think it’s great to have the questions so you can better understand the content and retain it at the same time.

Absolutely oustanding , I am highly recommending it, my Son is a high school football coach, and we are hoping to get the whole staff to read it, SDG!

Valuable and Timely Book

Biblical and practical. As a pastor, I've used this book already - it gives actionable wisdom that we used to keep two emotional church members from sabotaging a thriving ministry. If you are a Church leader, you need this book.

Solid encouragement for leaders to be sober minded

I especially enjoyed the last half and his engagement with Paul in Gal 2 and Acts. I’d love to be more of the sober-minded leader (or the differentiated leader) that Rigney describes.

On a slightly related, on the printed page, his criticisms of empathy and winsomeness are far more nuanced, balanced, and sensible than the Twitter soundbites seem to suggest.

Good work by the author and publisher

This is a solid job done by both the author and the publisher. Four stars are given because the book is not as lengthy as I thought it would be.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Hello Ninja (w/ slight imperfections)

Very helpful.

I'm very grateful Pastor Joe wrote this book. I'll use it as resource for helping our church grow in decisiveness and moving forward. Thank you all.
