Looking for a gift? Check out Pastor La Belle's book!
Posted by: Presbyterian Church of Cape Cod, OPC | more..
Rev. James La Belle and Dr. Joel Beeke have teamed up in an effort to bring the profitable teachings of the English Puritans to the contemporary church. They plan to do this by addressing important themes from the perspective of the Puritans, answering the question, "What did the Puritans teach about this?" Their first book was released last year: Living by God's Promises and is the first in a multi-volume set they have planned. In the first four chapters it seeks to explain what the promises of God are and what God has promised us by them. Chapter 5 is a transitional chapter, reviewing the foundational instruction of the earlier chapters and giving some basic instructions on applying the promises. And then, in chapters 6-9, four specific areas are addressed in order to show you how to apply and live by the promises of God in daily life. These four areas are: Afflictions, Times of Temptation and Sin, Fighting Sin, and Pursuing Holiness. Added to the book is an almost exhaustive Appendix of all the promises in Scripture as compiled by Edward Leigh, one of the Puritans whose writings they consulted.
The book is instructive and edifying, explanation followed by application, and following each chapter are several study questions which can be used either for personal review or with a study group. It will make a great devotional for yourself or a perfect gift for someone else. Please be sure to visit heritagebooks.org to order. It's also available as an audiobook for your commuting friends!
And be on the lookout for their next volume, Living Zealously, to be released in April 2012!

Living zealously for God! Check out Pastor La Belle's new book
Posted by: Presbyterian Church of Cape Cod, OPC | more..
Rev. James La Belle & Dr. Joel Beeke have teamed up again on their second volume in their "Puritan" series for today. This book addresses the subject of zeal by looking at what Christian zeal is, the necessity for it, the regulation of it, and the objects and means to it. You will find especially helpful the four examples of how Christian zeal affects four typical callings: the minister of the word, the worker, the parent, and the private Christian. Be sure to visit heritagebooks.org to order your copy. On second thought, order a second one to give away!

RELIGION / Christian Life / Spiritual Growth

In Living Zealously, Joel R. Beeke and James A. La Belle address the much overlooked topic of Christian zeal. Having mined the depths of Puritan wisdom on what it means to live earnestly for Christ, they explain it in a way that is familiar to our modern ears and applicable to our souls. Beeke and La Belle do us a valuable service by helping us see the importance of Christian zeal and encouraging us to obtain it. Read this book and ask God to deepen your Christian life with a burning and holy zeal.

“The reason for the resurgence of interest in the Puritans today is found in their extraordinary devotion to the things of God and the depth of their understanding and exposition of sacred Scripture. I welcome this series of books that make the Puritans even more accessible in our day on a variety of important but often neglected subjects.”
—R. C. Sproul, Founder and President of Ligonier Ministries

“We are indebted to the authors for bringing together and expounding this valuable selection on the subject of zeal from Puritan writings. It is zeal in the church that brings life to the world. The need is indisputable.”
—Iain H. Murray, Co-Founder of The Banner of Truth Trust

“ Jesus’ first public miracle at Cana was followed by cleansing the temple, and Christ’s own disciples remarked that our Lord was ‘consumed’ with zeal for His Father’s house. In light of this significant event, surely it is time to reconsider the virtue of godly, consuming zeal as biblically understood. In an age where holiness is often eschewed, or some form of mantra-chanting quietism endorsed in lieu of sanctification, this well-presented treatise by Beeke and La Belle arrives just in time. It is a great follow-up to the earlier volume, and we are happy to commend it to all audiences! Learn again from the distilled wisdom sifted for us from some of the thousands of works by the Puritan avatars of Christian living, as they point us to the marrow of practical spirituality.”
—David W. Hall, Midway Presbyterian Church, Powder Springs, Georgia

“A preacher can be forgiven if he lacks great intellectual ability or if he has to live with some physical weakness, but no preacher can be excused if he lacks zeal. If his heart is not aflame with a consuming passion for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ he stands as a condemned man. By extension, that is true of every believer as well, as Beeke and La Belle show so poignantly from the Puritans.”
—Geoff Thomas, Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales

“Jesus redeems, purifying a people who are to be ‘zealous for good works’ (Titus 2:14). With crystal clarity and perceptive practicality, Beeke and La Belle make quite a team. This book lays before us the solid, biblical, personal, pastoral, and urgent need for zeal in the Christian life. When Christianity still shows signs of flabbiness and inertia, these pages ignite with passion and persuasion.”
—Derek W. H. Thomas, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

Deepen Your Christian Life

From the late 1500s to the early 1700s, Puritan ministers wrote thousands of Christian books that contain massive amounts of biblical, doctrinal, experiential, and practical instruction to energize your Christian life. In the early seventeenth century, nearly 20 percent of the material coming off English presses consisted of Puritan sermon material popularized in book form. Unfortunately, many believers today find it difficult to read the antiquarian Puritan language and, when they attempt to do so, find themselves more frustrated than energized.
This new series, Deepen Your Christian Life, presents in contemporary language the major teachings that several Puritans wrote on subjects that are seldom addressed adequately, if at all, today. Finally, you too will be able to enjoy the Puritans and see, by the Spirit’s grace, that they really do energize your Christian life.
