Travels For Your Faith
Reading God's Word is not a box to check, this is the air I breathe. When I don't want to read my Bible, I do it anyway and there's always a joy in it for me. Sometimes all I learn is obedience and discipline, that's still good! Every day that you're in God's Word is a win!

Postcards from the Psalms
"C.H. Spurgeon's greatest written work was undoubtedly The Treasury of David, his extensive commentary on the book of Psalms, which took him over 20 years to research and write. After completing it, Spurgeon said, 'A tinge of sadness is on my spirit as I quit The Treasury of David, never to find on this earth a richer storehouse... Blessed have been the days spent in meditating, mourning, hoping, believing, and exulting David.'"
Unpack the Gospels
No gospel is more instructive to those who are the Lord's disciples and who are called to represent Him in the world. The lessons on discipleship are life-changing for the reader, as they were for the eleven who were Jesus' first followers.
- John F. MacArthur Jr.
The gospel emphasizes what Jesus did rather than what He said.
- Charles C. Ryrie
There is no gospel which more shows the mind and love of God than this of Luke. None is more truly and evidently inspired. Nevertheless there is none so deeply marked by traces of the human hand and heart.
- William Kelly
The Gospel of John is the most influential Book that has ever come from the pen of any man.
- Philip Schaff
Sail Through Acts
The story of the church and Paul's life which unfolds in the Acts of the Apostles is one of the most fascinating stories of the Bible.
- Roy G. Turnball

- R. Kent Hughes
