Tracking Those Incredible Dinosaurs

Dinosaur footprints are found in numerous locations around the world, on every continent. Typically they are found in strata that evolutionists identify as representing “dinosaur era” time, so their discovery isn’t surprising to them. Creationists, however, insist that fossil-bearing strata were primarily deposited during the great Flood of Noah’s day, and label the dinosaur fossils and footprint layers as coming from mid to late-flood episodes within that Flood.

A recent discovery of about 3,000 dinosaur tracks was announced from China. Here, tracks from creatures of several different species, sizes, lifestyles, and presumably habitats indicate they were all stampeding in the same direction. The researchers ask, “What were they all running from?” The carnivores couldn’t have been pursuing the herbivores, because the footprints are intermingled. And what was chasing the carnivores?

The Puzzle of Ancient Man

Man has always been highly intelligent. From startling ancient inventions to maps, ziggurats, and pyramids, your thinking about “ancient man” will never be the same!

Popular culture has led us to believe that ancient man was primitive, originating from primates and steadily improving through a process of time and chance. But does that agree with reality? What does the evidence left behind from past cultures tell us? Was ancient man simple and primitive as we have been taught, or did the level of science and technology existing thousands of years ago rival–or even surpass–the level of ours today in the 21st century?

In The Puzzle of Ancient Man, Dr. Chittick examines more details of technology, evidence of ancient machine power, and optical technology possessed by ancient people. Examine what the facts say about ancient man–facts that have long gone unnoticed and often times ignored by today’s secular culture.

Darwin’s Black Box

What would happen if we found something that radically challenged the now-accepted wisdom of evolution? In Darwin’s Black Box, Michael Behe argues that evidence of evolution’s limits has been right under our noses — but it is so small that we have only recently been able to see it. The field of biochemistry, begun when Watson and Crick discovered the double-helical shape of DNA, has unlocked the secrets of the cell. There, biochemists have unexpectedly discovered a world of Lilliputian complexity. As Behe engagingly demonstrates, using the examples of vision, bloodclotting, cellular transport, and more, the biochemical world comprises an arsenal of chemical machines, made up of finely calibrated, interdependent parts. For Darwinian evolution to be true, there must have been a series of mutations, each of which produced its own working machine, that led to the complexity we can now see. The more complex and interdependent each machine’s parts are shown to be, the harder it is to envision Darwin’s gradualistic paths. Behe surveys the professional science literature and shows that it is completely silent on the subject, stymied by the elegance of the foundation of life. Could it be that there is some greater force at work?

Michael Behe is not a creationist. He believes in the scientific method, and he does not look to religious dogma for answers to these questions. But he argues persuasively that biochemical machines must have been designed — either by God, or by some other higher intelligence.

Treasures in the Psalms

Treasures in the Psalms is a handy study of the Psalms, grouping them by theme, rather than chapter number. Dr. Morris explains the message and methods used in all of the Psalms. The Psalms speak of the creation, the Messiah, the second coming, and the millennium. Psalms has been a book of blessing, encouragement, comfort, and joy for countless millions, and this book will also be a blessing for its readers.

The MacArthur Bible Commentary

Serious students of Scripture can easily lose their focus among the many Bible commentaries available today, studying for hours yet discovering no meaningful application of God’s eternal truth. This one-volume commentary on the entire Bible from one of America’s foremost Bible expositors offers instead a minilibrary of understandable resources designed to convey the Bible’s overarching message with historical and theological clarity.

Pastor and teacher John MacArthur covers the complete Bible—every passage of the Old and New Testaments, phrase by phrase—in this valuable one-volume resource. Hundreds of additional study tools complement the commentary, such as

  • Word studies
  • Charts, graphs, and brief articles
  • Overviews of each major division of the Bible
  • Introductions to each biblical book
  • A summary of essential Christian theology
  • Special sections on Jesus’s life and ministry
  • Harmonies of historical writings
  • Guidance in studying, applying, and teaching God’s Word

Readers benefit from the coherence a single commentator provides, finding faithful, understandable, and relevant resources for any passage from the entire Bible. Consistent elements include exploring God’s character; seeing Christ in all Scripture; and identifying key doctrines, vital people, and touchstone Scripture passages. The MacArthur Bible Commentary offers pastors, Bible teachers, serious Bible readers, and anyone seeking to read and understand the Scriptures a way to focus their studies while still seeing the entire Bible’s application to the Christian life.

Applause of Heaven

You can’t open your Bible without reading about it. You can’t live a truly satisfying life without it. It is a sacred delight, a holy gladness. And it’s nearer than you think. Jesus describes this sacred delight in the astonishing mountain message we now call the Beatitudes.

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado explores Jesus’ prescription for enduring joy and the ways this familiar but revolutionary pattern of living can bless your life beyond your wildest imagining.

In The Applause of Heaven you’ll discover that God promises a special blessing to:

  • the poor in spirit
  • those who mourn
  • the meek
  • those who hunger and thirst
  • the merciful
  • the pure in heart
  • the peacemakers
  • the persecuted

As you seek to live out the message of the Sermon on the Mount, you’ll find your biggest fan walking alongside you. Imagine your best friend—the King of kings—in your cheering section and the applause of heaven ringing out . . . just for you.

But don’t just imagine it. Open your heart to it. Receive the heavenly joy of knowing the God who delights in you.
