"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." - Matthew 7:7 Asking, seeking, and knocking are three imperatives Jesus gave his disciples, and us, in order to grow fully in our Faith and be true disciples of Jesus. Scripture reading and study is an important part of that path to discipleship, and offers us opportunities... to ask - for clarity to seek - the truths of the Bible to knock - asking Christ to come into our hearts. George Martin, prolific writer on Scripture and author of Bringing the Gospel of Luke to Life, and Bringing the Gospel of Mark to Life now brings Matthew's Gospel into sharp focus in a verse-by-verse commentary. Martin gives readers the context of the first-century meaning, and what it means to us today. Reflection questions help us to apply the biblical texts to our own lives. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the Gospel of Matthew - as well as priests, deacons, catechetical leaders, Bible study leaders, Scripture teachers or seminarians. Let George Martin bring the Gospel of Matthew to Life for you today.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.
