None Greater : The Undomesticated Attributes Of God
For too long, Christians have domesticated God, bringing him down to our level, as if he is a God who can be tamed. But he is a God who is high and lifted up, the Creator rather than the creature, someone than which none greater can be conceived. If God is the most perfect, supreme being, infinite and incomprehensible, then certain perfect-making attributes must be true of him. Perfections like aseity, simplicity, immutability, and eternity shield God from being crippled by creaturely limitations. At the same time, this all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-wise God exhibits perfect wisdom, holiness, and love as he makes known who he is and how he will save us. When we need to be reminded of God’s magnificence, the attributes of God show us exactly why God is worthy of worship: there is none like him.
Join Matthew Barrett as he rediscovers these divine perfections and finds himself surprised by the God he thought he knew. Your Christian walk will never be the same.

Samuel Rutherford : The Law, The Prince And The Scribe$11.99Add to cart
When Samuel Rutherford picked up his pen he changed lives, maybe even across continents. What he wrote influenced the American constitution but where his real power and passion was felt was in the letters that his warm pastor’s heart wrote to the people of his parish.
His book Lex Rex was burned on a pyre but his notes of comfort and wisdom were cherished by those he cared to guide and counsel.
Accused of treason he died of illness before there was time to make him a martyr and on his gravestone today, just west of the Bell Tower in St. Andrews Cathedral are engraved the striking words that sum up his life, “Acquainted with Emmanuel’s Love’.

John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court$11.99Add to cart
There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.
“It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”
It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.
