Just wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone about a great deal I saw at WTSBooks.com. I’ve long said that Westminster Theological Seminary’s Bookstore is the best bookstore I know of. Between classes, it where we’d go to have fun. It was like a candy store for all those theologically-inclined individuals. They’re dirt-cheap (more often than not cheaper than Amazon) and usually have some good deal going on. And this one is no exception. Two brand new books. $14.49. Here’s the link:
Here are some endorsements. Paul Tripp, a pastor at Tenth Presbyterian Church here in Philly,one of the most well-known Biblical Counselors in the country, and author of the amazing Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands says:
“There are few books that are shockingly honest, carefully theological, and gloriously hopeful all at the same time. Tim Chester’s book You Can Change is all of these and more. He skillfully uses the deepest insights of the theology of the Word as a lens to help you understand yourself and the way of change and, in so doing, helps you to experience practically what you thought you already knew. The carefully crafted personal ‘reflection’ and ‘change project’ sections are worth the price of the book by themselves. It is wonderful to be reminded that you and I are not stuck, and it’s comforting to be guided by someone who knows well the road from where we are to where we need to be.”
“A book about Christian growth that is neither quietistic nor moralistic is rare. A book that is truly practical is even rarer. Tim Chester’s new volume falls into both categories and therefore fills a gap.”
Stellar endorsements from guys I trust.
Concerning the other book, What is the Gospel, by Greg Gilbert, I’m not as excited. It’s being put out by a ministry called IXMarks started by Mark Dever. I like Mark Dever. He’s brilliant and his 9 Marks of a Healthy Church is pretty good. I respect that he takes Biblical Theology and the story of Scripture seriously (especially here and here), but too often I find myself on the other side of the aisle from Dever concerning some theological issues.
But I digress. Either way, this is a great deal and it will only be around until Thursday, April 1st, so hurry up and get some great books for a great price.
