Conference Books

Four pallets of free books were given as gifts to the men who attended the pastors conference this week. Some of you have asked me for a list of titles. Here they are:

C.J. Mahaney, booklet, Don’t Waste Your Sports (Crossway, Nov. 2010). The booklet was released early to be distributed at the conference. It should be available online in the next week or so at

C.J. Mahaney, paperback, Biblical Productivity (SGM, Nov. 2010). This paperback version of C.J.’s blog series was printed for conference attendees. These books are not available for sale, but you can download the full contents of the book here.

Michael Lawrence, paperback, Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church (Crossway, April 2010). C.J. especially encouraged pastors to read and study chapters 11 and 12.

Jim Hamilton, hardcover, God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology (Crossway, Nov. 2010). Another new title. Hamilton’s book is a nice example of three things: (1) how to find a thematic center to the Bible, (2) how to preserve a proper emphasis on God’s holiness, and (3) how to be continually reminded (from every book of the Bible!) of the gospel that saves us from God’s judgment and wrath.

Jonathan Leeman, paperback, The Church and the Surprising Offense of God’s Love (Crossway, Jan. 2010). An important book on church membership and church discipline.

John Newton, cloth, Letters of John Newton (Banner of Truth, 2007). Said J.I. Packer: “Whitefield was flamboyant, Wesley was masterful, Newton was unobtrusive. Yet Newton was indubitably one of the three greatest eighteenth-century evangelical leaders. As a warm-hearted pastoral counselor, in groups and by letter, he had no peer.”

John Newton, cloth, Wise Counsel: John Newton’s Letters to John Ryland Jr. (Banner of Truth, 2009). More letters.

Marty Machowski, large paperback, Long Story Short: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God (New Growth, Nov. 2010). This family devotional arrived directly from the printer at the start of the conference and C.J. distributed copies to the men on Wednesday night.

Not a bad haul.
