God, Evil, and Suffering

God, Evil, and Suffering
Understanding God’s Role in Tragedies and Atrocities

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN 978-0-9600203-6-2, SRP $9.99

While there is no place in Scripture where God provides any clear explanation of the origin of evil and His purposes in it, He affirms His goodness and love on virtually every page. And when His character is properly understood, His ultimate purposes become obvious. This book helps believers rediscover these truths revealed in Scripture, that they might permeate our heart and animate our worship. Herein we can find comfort and hope in days of trouble, and glorify God come what may.

God’s Gracious Gift of Assurance

God’s Gracious Gift of Assurance
Rediscovering the Benefits of Justification by Faith

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN 978-1-7343452-1-6, SRP $9.99

There is no greater source of joy in the life of Christians than knowing that we have been reconciled to God through faith in His Son, our Substitute and Surety, the Lord Jesus Christ. To know that our sins are forgiven and the merits of Jesus are now ours through imputation—solely as a gift of God’s grace—produces such soul-satisfying kinship with our Creator that all fears of standing before His holy tribunal evaporate like a morning mist before the sun. Herein is the heart of the doctrine of justification—a doctrine that many believers only appreciate and enjoy superficially.

Introduction
Peace with God
Access to God
A Permanent Standing Before God
A Jubilant Hope of Glory
Joy in Tribulation
Proof of Salvation
Hope through a Subjective Awareness of God’s Love

Our Sin and the Savior

Our Sin and the Savior
Understanding the Need for Renewing and Sanctifying Grace

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN, 978-1-7343452-0-9 SRP $9.99

There is perhaps no greater example of beguiling deceit in the church today than the distortions surrounding the doctrine of sin and the power of the gospel to save sinners from it. Unfortunately, when sin is whitewashed, the Savior becomes irrelevant, regeneration unnecessary, and worldliness replaces godliness. This mini-book examines these matters in the light of Scripture to help the reader better understand the mystery of the cross and people’s desperate need for renewing and sanctifying grace.

Sin: Nature or Nurture?
The Spin on Sin

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN 978-1-7343452-3-0, SRP $9.99

The purpose of this mini book is to help believer’s develop a deeper grasp of what it means to be “in Christ,” that together we might embrace this intimate oneness more fully by faith and experience more of the confidence, power, and soul-satisfying joy of the presence of our exalted Redeemer. Charles Spurgeon said it best: “There is no joy in this world like union with Christ! The more we can feel it, the happier we are, whatever our circumstances.” Through the careful exposition of relevant biblical passages regarding this subject, this manuscript is certain to animate this joy.

Finding Strength in Weakness

Finding Strength in Weakness
Drawing Upon the Existing Grace Within

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN 978-1-7343452-4-7, SRP $9.99
We are all prone to debilitating physical and spiritual weakness. But knowing how to find spiritual strength in those seasons of weakness—especially in the face of persecution—is elusive for most. Timothy, the apostle Paul’s son in the faith, struggled with this very thing. But God revealed to him some very practical ways to tap into the resources he already possessed, bringing him much needed comfort and encouragement, while at the same time giving him power to persevere and prevail in the face of overwhelming forces of opposition. And it is these great truths that this mini book examines.

Finding Grace in Sorrow

Finding Grace in Sorrow
Enduring Trials with the Joy of the Holy Spirit

Dr. David A. Harrell, ISBN 978-1-7343452-8-5, SRP $9.99
Sorrow is a familiar companion of every Christian. But for those who rest confidently in the good and perfect purposes of God, there exists an inexplicable, subjective awareness of God’s all-sufficient grace—a tranquil peace impervious to circumstances that flows from the fountain of His covenantal love for those He has redeemed. The purpose of this little volume is to help believers develop a deeper understanding of this dynamic force of divine resources, one that transforms all believers at the moment of salvation and empowers them in every aspect of their life in Christ.
