JOEL R BEEKE & JAMES A LA BELLE
In Living by God’s Promises, Joel R. Beeke and James A. La Belle draw from stellar Puritan treatises on divine promises by Andrew Gray, Edward Leigh, and William Spurstowe, and offer them in contemporary language for today’s readers. Moving beyond historical interest, this book explores a topic that is vital for Christian living. By God’s grace, it will help you treasure the promises that God establishes in Christ and conveys in His covenant love to comfort you in sorrow and strengthen your faith. With the Spirit’s blessing, this book will energize and deepen your life as you appropriate the precious promises in God’s Word.

“God’s promises are exceedingly great and many. Other books list them, and there is a place for that, but in this book a Christian mentality is set forth to equip us by a regenerate mindset to perceive, understand, and appropriate the promises of the Bible. What assurance, courage, and energy may come from applying oneself to these pages!” – Geoff Thomas, Pastor of Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales
“Living by God’s Promises will be enjoyed, whether by a new Christian, a seminary student, or a saint ready to go home to be with the Lord. It masterfully weaves the voices of Puritans as echoes to the voice of our Good Shepherd whose promises are lavish and bountiful. Enjoy this book-use it often, share it with others, and read it slowly to savor the nourishment. It brings not only comfort but an encouragement to holiness.” – David W. Hall, Senior Minister of Midway Presbyterian Church, Powder Springs, Georgia
“The promises of God give light for the Christian’s path through life, and food for the soul on the pilgrimage. Living By God’s Promises provides us with a third sine qua non-a map book to guide us to the store houses in which we can find the bountiful provision God has given us for the journey.” – Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina
