    Evangelism in the Old Testament The Unfolding Drama of World Missions A Missional Discovery ​ When one thinks of evangelism in the Old Testament, likely figures such as Rahab and Ruth come to mind, along with others, trickling into the covenant community to join hands with the people of God— foretastes of Gentiles as well as Jews called to faith in Christ following the Great Commission. However, De Jong wonders: “Maybe we have been missing something significant. I was cognizant of many places in the Old Testament where God had so designed events that the end result of those events became an empire-wide call for repentance and a call to worship the true God of the Israelites. Those amazing empire-wide proclamations will unfold in these chapters as we proceed.” In other words, as the pre-incarnate Christ was on the way to Bethlehem and the Mount of Olives, He was already laying the foundation for World Missions. Profound hope here for Zion on her way to the New Jerusalem. ​ ​ “Today, as I look at the picture of all of us, including the dictator himself, heads bowed, eyes closed as we prayed, I realize that the world-wide mission of the gospel of the resurrected Christ is an ongoing miracle that is wonderfully presented already in the Old Testament.” - From the Foreword by Joel H.

    Glorious Love ​ Jesus' Great Mediatory Prayer for His Own The Bride in His Heart ​ The glory of God is so clearly presented to us in our Lord’s Upper Room prayer. The Son shows His unity with the Father in such a striking and heart-warming way, one that leaves us with a grand impression of our God. Not only was Jesus willing to die for us, but He prays for us. We have a great High Priest in Jesus. Here, in John 17, we see a part of that High Priestly ministry which will last until the last days are upon us. That is for you, it is for me, that is, for all who are moved to seek Him. While He talks of glory in this prayer, we also look to that glory. As we draw out what Jesus shows us through this prayer it is my hope that we will be lost in the amazement of His glory as we explore what He is telling us through the chapters of this book. - From the Introduction ​ 9 x 6 - 164pp Soft-Cover & E-book ​ As a young man, Robert D. Norman was converted in the United Kingdom where he lived, and then called by God to serve as a missionary in Romania. There he is spreading the Good News of God’s Love, preparing disciples for the great Wedding Banquet of the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Church. ​ Amazon - USA Amazon - UK Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More...

    Israel and the Nations A Sketch of Jewish History in Three Volumes Isaäc De Costa A Special Place or One Nation Among Many? This work is presented as part of the conversation today regarding Israel, the Palestinians and Islam, on the eve of the 75th Anniversary of the reestablishment of Israel as a Nation in 1948. Dr. John Bolt discusses at length the present-day bifurcation among Calvinists regarding Israel, and the editor includes a history of Israel into the 21st Century. These modest contributions bookend creatively compiled and lightly annotated sections of Dr. Isaäc Da Costa's extensive and meticulous research on the history of the Jews. Dr. H. Bavinck says that, Israel's culture is advanced beyond any people on earth. The heroes of Israel have not been world conquerors, artists or philosophers but were emissaries of God, carriers of his Word: prophets and psalmists, apostles and evangelists . . . from them is Christ in the flesh. Is he correct? If so, what does it mean for today? This book is published with the intention to press the church to think hard about its theology, as well as public policy, regarding Israel and its place among the nations. ​ Isaäc Da Costa (1798-1860) , a prominent poet and Calvinist theologian, was born and raised in Amsterdam. His Sephardic Jewish ancestors had been expelled from Spain and Portugal during the inquisitional purge of 1492. The Venice of the North became known as “Little Jerusalem.” Da Costa’s intellectual genius and historical acumen have always been widely acknowledged. Earning doctorates in Law and Philosophy at the University of Leiden, he was a member of the Orthodox Reformed party and considered the most influential leader in the Dutch Réveil. Dr. Da Costa was appointed as a professor and the director at the seminary of the Independent Scottish Church. Whether you are an academic in the Ivory Tower or philosemitics in the pews, here is church history that longs to be learned and demands universal transmission. 9x6 - Hard-Cover |Soft-Cover 300 pp. ​ Available through our global and regional distributors ​ ​ Buy Now - USA Buy Now - CA Buy Now - UK Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More

    My Only Comfort! Really? The Last Sermon of a Minister of the Word The End of the Matter From the Apostle Paul to the 21st century, God has called preachers to proclaim His unchanging Word within the context of the changing world in which the listeners always find themselves. In fact, by the power of the Holy Spirit, it is precisely at this intersection where the Word of God makes transformational impact. In this his final message, Dr. Schuringa invites the congregation to enter into a deep discussion regarding what it means today that Jesus is our only comfort in life and in death. He digs into Lord’s Day I and Matthew 15:21-28 for answers to a tough question. Not everyone will be prepared to take on this challenging subject on living in this world, dying and death. That said, believers who have experienced life’s brutal hardships, sufferings and relentless series of losses will latch on whole-heartedly to its truth: “Surely, I have calmed and quieted my soul; like a weaned child in its mother’s arms (Ps. 131:2). 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 - 33 pp. Soft-Cover Available world-wide through our global and regional distributors Buy Now - US Buy Now - CA Buy Now - UK Save - Bulk Orders Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More Nsmpress Copyright (c) 2019-2021 North Star Ministry Press LLC All Rights Resereved

    The Dordrecht Bible Commentary Volume V: The Gospels & Acts ​ For 400 years, the Dort Bible [Statenvertaling] has blessed the universal church not only with a tried and true translation but also a revered running commentary from the best and most godly pastor-theologians of the 17th Century Golden Age. This special gift for God’s people, covering all of Scripture, was approved by both the Synod of Dordrecht 1618-1619 and the Westminster Assembly 1645. The work on earth of our Savior does not begin with the Gospels. That said, the gospel record in this volume is of Jesus’ work down here in human flesh which he assumed at his conception. Each gospel tells the same story but in its own inspired way. ​ Matthew writes to Jewish Christians, showing how in every step along the way, Jesus is the promised Messiah. Mark is more like a gospel tract, the briefest account, that on the one hand reads like a press release and, on the other hand, provides a compact manual for Christian discipleship. Luke makes clear that his biography of Jesus intends to show how the Savior came as the remedy for the entire world, i.e. Gentiles as well as Jews. And the fourth account provides a more philosophical basis for the Christian faith. Fact is, that Acts should be called the fifth gospel because Luke himself tells us that in his first book he reports what Jesus began to do and to teach. ​ The Dort Commentary compels us to see why everything in Scripture, also before and after these books, is about Jesus. The Dort scholars depict him in all his glory and humility as the Son of God, truly God and truly man, who shed his own blood for his own. ​ 8 x 10 - Pp. 320 Soft-Cover & E-Book Buy Six-Volume Set Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More...

    Smooth Words Daniel's Perspective on the Great Commission Phlip G. Bowersox Genteel or Maśkîlîm? On the radar for today’s church is the dire need to view the Great Commission in a new light. With smooth words the enemy is lulling saints to sleep. Daniel is a prophetic and urgent call for 21st century Maśkîlîm to recalibrate our missional tactics. Philip G. Bowersox earned his BA from Oklahoma State University and his ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary. He also graduated from the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania. Educated in sound theology and military strategy, Bowersox is well-positioned for training good soldiers of Jesus Christ, as his witnesses, that they may please him who enlisted them. Philip and his wife, Barbara, reside in Oklahoma City where he planted and pastors Grace Bible Church, a congregation in the Reformed tradition with expository preaching. They have two adult children, William and Charles. Deception, including self-deception, concerning the gospel and discipleship is a perennial danger for Christians. This book exposes the prevalence of deception and confusion within the church today, and presents solutions true to Scripture particu-larly about the doctrines of justification and sanctification, notably the often overlooked relevance of the book of Daniel. Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., Ph.D. Because deceivers are present both outside and inside the church, we must speak truth to those who might be enamored with soft words and led astray wherever deceivers appear. Skeptical as we are, you and I might ask, how seriously should we take these threats? Our Lord himself warns us that the spread of the gospel to the nations brings with it the spread of false doctrine and deception among those nations.

    The New Has Come Christine Farenhorst The place is Schiermonnikoog, an idyllic, tiny island off the North Sea coast of the Netherlands; the time is WW II and its various upheavals, interwoven with a battle for the soul of the child Linnet. She has been predestined for daughtership through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will. Knit together in a womb, she was destined to be breathed upon by the Holy Spirit. However, she is not aware of this wonderful truth. At the right moment in her life, the heavenly Father, in His infinite grace, mercy and providence, picks Linnet up by the seat of her little pants, sets her straight, and opens the eyes of her heart. However, the means God uses to unlock ears and open eyes, are mysterious. The fact is that He sometimes does things in ways we do not understand. Confusing hours and difficult days must be lived through before this covenant child catches sight of Canaan. ​ 6 x 9 pp. 262 - Soft-Cover ​ Now available through our global and regional distributors Buy Now - CA Buy Now - USA ​ Endorsements This is a delightful story of a curious little girl caught up in the tempest of World War II and carried by God’s secret providence to discover his Son Jesus Christ. - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President Puritan Reformed Seminary An excellent piece of writing! I enjoyed it very much! We all know that God is working out His great plan in His providence. Often, however, we fail to meditate on what seem to be the small events through which God is working. The book portrays the Great War going on in Europe and God’s work in a small girl. What a God we have! What a story!” - Rev. Jerome Julien Minister of the Word, Emeritus This dramatic and unusual war story about little Linnet and her family is also a biblical meditation on the passing of the old and the coming of the new. Farenhorst’s compassion for her characters drew me into a world that I have been reliving and pondering as I see truth peeking out from unexpected places. - Annie Kate Aarnoutse, Tea Time with Annie Kate This book is classic Christine. It is so easy to read – one gets quickly lost in the story – yet with rich, profound layering and depth. Truly a story for the whole family to laugh, cry, discuss, be challenged, and grow in grace. We simply loved this book. - Mr. Maynard and Dr. Richelle Lanting This is World War II through the eyes of a five-year-old Dutch girl who, we discover, knows absolutely nothing about God. For our own children, who may take always knowing God for granted, it will be eye-opening to follow what it's like, and how wonderful it is, for someone to be introduced to God for the first time. Linnet has the same wonderings any kid might have, but her wartime experiences also have her asking deeper questions, including a child's version of "God are you really there?" This is that rarity that will appeal to all ages: the World War II setting and charming protagonist will grab your children; moms and dads will appreciate Linnet's questions and the opportunities they present to talk about God with our kids, and grandparents will get more than a little misty-eyed at just how beautifully this tale is told.

    The Dordrecht Bible Commentary Volume IV: The Prophetic Books ​ For 400 years, the Dort Bible [Statenvertaling] has blessed the universal church not only with a tried and true translation but also a revered running commentary from the best and most godly pastor-theologians of the 17th Century Golden Age. This special gift for God’s people, covering all of Scripture, was approved by both the Synod of Dordrecht 1618-1619 and the Westminster Assembly 1645. The prophets were covenant messengers for Israel’s Sovereign God. Royal messengers are not self-appointed as such but are called and equipped by the king to deliver his messages. The prophetic writings, frequently prosecuting covenant lawsuits, let us hear in greater detail what was forth-told and foretold in addition to excerpts in the historical books. The prophets raise issues such as the antithesis, the treatment of the marginalized in society, the essence of faithful worship practices and the problem of evil. Proclaimed most pointedly is the coming Day of the Lord in judgment due to the unbelief of Israel and the nations, as well as in promise of immense blessing upon the faithful. Clear testimony is given as to how the latter would be accomplished only by the arrival of the Messiah, whose coming was foretold from the beginning. With much of the most vivid and dramatic revelation in Salvation History, the four Major Prophets differ from the twelve Minor Prophets only for length, not in importance. The highly learned analyses and observations of the Dort Scholars present inspiring material for a believer’s life-time of learning for the apprehension and all-of-life application of the Gospel. 8 x 10 - Pp. 728 Soft-Cover & E-Book Buy Six-Volume Set Belshazzer's Feast (Rembrandt) Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More...

    The Dordrecht Bible Commentary Volume III: The Wisdom Literature For 400 years, the Dort Bible [Statenvertaling] has blessed the universal church with not only a tried and true translation but also a revered running commentary from the best and most godly pastor-theologians of the 17th Century Golden Age. This gift for God’s people, covering all of Scripture, was approved by both the Synod of Dordrecht 1618-1619 and the Westminster Assembly 1645. This the third volume in the six-volume set, preserving the Early-Modern 17th Century text, consists of the Wisdom Literature (Job - Song of Solomon). In these documents, at the center and heart of the entire Bible, those who are thirsty are invited to drink deeply from the waters of salvation. To receive the embrace of the Christ—who is, who was and who is to come—who satisfies the believer’s deepest longings and sets the tone for faithful covenant living within the grand history of redemption. Taking a break from the Rembrandt Gallery, this volume contains a second gallery entitled, “In Word and Worship,” depicting exhibits of Scripture and worship resources from the Reformation and the Further Reformation period. The rediscovery of the truths of God’s Word and the reforming of worship were always on the hearts and minds of churches of the Reformation. ​ The Dort Scholars were aware that one may well apprehend the facts of the covenant, its promises, stipulations and sanctions. It is possible to understand that all of Scripture is about Christ, but yet sense distance, if not detachment, from divine favor. Yes, the Wisdom Literature speaks to the heart of the glorious Bride of Christ for the gracious appropriation of new life in Covenant with God. 8 x 10 - Pp. 472 Soft-Cover & E-book Buy Six-Volume Set Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More...

    Embracing Doctrine and Life Simon Oomius in the Context of Further Reformation Orthodoxy The Practice of Godliness Dr. Simon Oomius (1630-1706) was the youngest of 21 children born to Elizabeth Jans, “a woman of Proverbs 31.” Oomius was a prolific writer even while he pastored two churches and served as a military chaplain. Studying under Profs. Gisbertus Voetius and Johannes Hoornbeeck, he took up the latter’s recommendation to write a robust Practical Theology for pastors, students and for God’s people to become not only “more learned, but better” – a basic principle of the Further Reformation (1600-1750). Preparing the way for W. Brakel, he delves deeply into subjects of everyday Christian living that are as relevant for today’s world (perhaps even more) as they were for his. Oomius “points toward the magnitude of the Reformed Orthodox–Nadere Reformatie theological project. Schuringa’s work not only provides an introduction to the work of a highly neglected theologian of the seventeenth-century, it also offers a significant window into the thought-world of Protestant ortho-doxy and its role in the Further Reformation of the confessionally Reformed Church.” - From the Foreword by Richard A.

    Seventy Resolutions by the Young Jonathan Edwards Explained and Applied Robert D. Norman RESOLUTE! How could a mere teenager produce such extraordinary resolutions? His story starts with a promising and intelligent college student who stands by the bed of his dying grandfather and hears the words: “I trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and I desire to do so more and more.” Robert Norman discovered these resolutions for himself, and decided to write meditations for each, that bring them into the 21st Century. ​ Edwards studied and led at Yale, served as a faithful pastor-scholar, became a catalyst for the first Great Awakening and was appointed as the Third President of Princeton University. He is widely regarded as one of America's most important and original philosophical theologians. ​ In 1722 and 1723, Edwards wrote seventy purpose statements for his life, known as his “Resolutions.” This young minister worked hard to keep these seventy vows. Here is a key to his spiritual growth, as well as yours, studying Norman’s meditations day-by-day. ​ ​ Robert D. Norman, theologically educated in the UK, is a missionary in Romania. There, he and his wife, Ema, seek to be faithful servants of Jesus Christ, resolutely sounding out the gospel trumpet for sinners to repent and to follow Jesus. ​ 6x9 - pp., 225 - Hard-Cover - Soft-Cover - E-Book ​ Available through out global and regional distributors Buy Now - UK Hardcover - UK Buy Now - US Hardcover - US Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More
