When Jesus Christ bowed His head on the cross and declared, "It is finished," this was inclusive of the purpose of His suffering, redemption of the world, and the giving of birth to the New Testament church. Therefore, it defies reason to say that the church was born on Pentecost, rather than on the cross, when Pentecost was fifty days after the crucifixion where His work was finished. This book is intended to clarify much of the controversy and to give a better understanding of the promise and process of the birth of the New Testament church. From beginning to end, this book deals expressly with the Christ, the cross, and the church. Dr. Daniel Cowans is Pastor at the Bibleway Church of God in Christ, Toronto; Founder of The Bibleway Institute of Christian Counselling and Theological Studies; a former lecturer at California State Christian University and Victory Bible College in Calgary, AB; and a professor and an accredited affiliate with Mount Olive Bible Institute and Seminary in New York. Dr. Cowans' credentials include: Doctor of Christian Counselling and Psychology (DCC), Canada Christian College PhD, California State Christian University, Los Angeles, California Doctor of Ministry (DMin), Honorary, Mount Olive Bible Institute and Seminary, New York Doctor of Pastoral Counselling (DPC), Honorary Doctor of Divinity (DD), Honorary Dr. Cowans lives in Toronto with his wife, Pauline. They have four children.

The life of Jesus Christ takes on fresh clarity and meaning in this masterful work by Dwight Pentecost. The words, the miracles, and overarching message of the Messiah come alive in flowing and detailed chronology, set against the cultural, political, and religious setting of his day. You'll gain new understanding of why Jesus came, how he operated, and what he accomplished. Above all, you'll acquire a deeper appreciation for the love that guided his path, beginning in a manger in Bethlehem, leading through three and a half years of ministry that ended abruptly at the cross on Golgotha, and blazing forth in eternal triumph at the resurrection. Drawing liberally on the works of others who have written about Christ, such as Alfred Edersheim, J. W. Shepherd, W. Graham Scroggie, and Frederick Faraar, Dr. Pentecost reveals in his own writing a familiarity with the subject that comes from years of teaching. Yet he writes, not as one who knows all there is to know about Christ, but with the restraint of one who knows that Jesus is to be worshiped and adored as the great King, and that no book can do more than begin to tell all the wonders of his being and his love.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.
