The Lord Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). Even so, much of our giving tends to fall short of true Christian giving as defined in God's Word.
In 2 Corinthians 8 and 9, we find many principles related to giving and the rewards for doing so. These principles apply not only to giving money, but to all areas of Christian stewardship—our time, our talent, and our treasure.

As one reads through 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, a contemporary letter, it is obvious that Paul is free and moving about, engaged in evangelizing and strengthening churches. He has recently left Timothy in Ephesus(1 Tim. 1:3) and he has been with Titus in Crete(Tit. 1:5). In his letter he asks Titus to join him in Nicopolis (Tit. 3:12). Paul is happy and busy in the work of God.
As he writes 1 Timothy, Paul realizes that the years are passing and that his life will come to a close soon. He feels that marks of old age and there is always the possibility of persecution and sudden death. He is burdened to leave with Timothy some practical instructions concerning church organization and functioning. He writes that Timothy may know “how one ought to conduct himself in the house hold of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth” (Tim. 3:15 NASB).
It is a very practical book then, dealing with such matters as the role of the Law, the roles of the sexes, church leadership and practical godly living. The Christian today can be profoundly grateful that the Holy Spirit led Paul to pen these words to Timothy, his dear son in the faith and fellow-worker. Churches today desperately need these instructions.View full product details

As one reads through 1 Timothy and Titus, a contemporary letter, it is obvious that Paul is free and moving about, engaged in evangelizing and strengthening churches. He has recently left Timothy in Ephesus (1 Tim 1:3) and he has been with Titus in Crete (1 Tim 1:5). In his letter he asks Titus to join him in Nicopolis (Tit. 3:12). Paul is happy and busy in the work of God.
But when one reads 2 Timothy all is changed. He is now a prisoner, expecting not a release but execution (2 Tim. 2:6). The shadow of death hangs over him , unlike his earlier Roman imprisonment when he expected release (Philemon 22).
Paul is in Rome now (2 Tim. 1:17) but has recently been in Troas where he left his coat and books (2 Tim. 4:13). He may have been arrested and taken away quickly with no time to gather his personal belongings. Earlier he left Trophimus sick in Miletus and had left Erastus in Corinth (2 Tim. 4:20).
Others question the authorship on the basis of linguistic style or doctrinal approach. But a writer may use a very different vocabulary and writing style depending on his subject matter. A university professor will use very different styles in writing a scholarly dissertation or in penning an intimate letter to a family member. Paul claims to be the author (1 Tim. 1:1; 2 Tim. 1:1) and there is no convincing reason to doubt this. If the work is inspired of God, would there be deception and fraud? No, these letters carry the stamp of divine inspiration and approval. The reader today can study them diligently with confidence that they came from the hand of Paul. Through the centuries they have blessed and inspired the readers to live wholeheartedly for God.View full product details

An attempt has been made in the volume to reemphasize the sound Scriptural teaching of the “The Pilgrim’s Progress” especially to young people, and this is the sole explanation of its existence. Of its many imperfections none is more conscious than the author, but if it leads the reader to more diligent study of this immortal allegory, and also of Bunyan’s other words, especially Grace Abounding and The Holy War, he will feel amply repaid.
The contents of this book appeared originally in a series of weekly articles in “Words of Love,” a Sunday school magazine, and are now sent forth in this complete form with the earnest desire that the blessing of God may attend its reading, and that, as a result, many may be led to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and thus begin the pilgrim journey; and that those who are already treading the celestial highway, may be encouraged to go on the for God and to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.View full product details
