Reformed Resources

I’m glad to recommend these books and videos for those who want to learn more about the history and the theology of the Reformation. Of course, there is a wealth of information available, but I believe these resources are an excellent supplement to our Reformed Foundations course.


This is a fantastic little book that captures the history and the heart of the Reformation. Michael Reeves deftly takes his readers on a delightful tour of Europe, highlighting the work of God in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Great Britain, with a perfect balance of narrative and theology.
This is an excellent academic resource that traces the theology of Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simons, and William Tyndale. As different as these men were from each other in their theological emphases and their life experiences, they were bound together by their belief that based on the scripture alone, salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone for the glory of God alone.
In this helpful book, R.C. Sproul teaches through the major tenets of Reformed theology, particularly the doctrines of grace, while highlighting that Reformed theology flows from a commitment to the Word of God, the centrality of God, and the Son of God. This content is also available as a free video teaching series.
John Piper leads us to the wonders of God’s grace in this book that’s available for free as a PDF or video seminar.

Songs for Your Soul

I want to highlight two albums from Sovereign Grace Music. One relates to our current sermon series, and the other connects with Sunday’s sermon in particular.

Psalms

We’ve been singing several songs from Psalms during this Summer’s series, “Psalms: Fascinated by God.” The album, with each song based on a Psalm from the Old Testament, celebrates God’s character, offers exuberant praise, expresses desires for God’s presence, and cries out to God for help in times of trouble. The cumulative effect is to call us to praise the God who is always worthy, to “taste and see that the LORD is good.”

Come Weary Saints is for those who, like Asaph in Psalm 77, are in a time when they need to “fly by the instruments” because they are in a fog. “The instruments” are telling us that God is real, that he is strong, and that he uses his strength to redeem his people and lead them all the way home. The songs on this album will help us as we strive to remember the God who works wonders and to meditate on his marvelous deeds by pointing us to Jesus, the great savior who showed his love by giving his life for our sin.
