Our favorite daily devotional. Indeed, these devotionals are shining examples of the kind of regular teaching/exhortation that might take place in the assembly on the Lord's day. If we cannot approach Mr. Spurgeon's godly eloquence, nevertheless we can encourage and exhort one another through mutual ministry.
My favorite history of the church. You can buy the book at the link above. Someone has said history is written by the conquerors. Not this one! Read my review of the book here.
Dispensationalism is, I believe, simply a right division of the Word of truth. The apostles did not teach "dispensationalism." One arrives at a dispensational understanding of Scripture by believing what the apostles taught, which is to say, by believing the NT epistles. If dispensationalism is held in increasing derision by the "kingdom now" proponents and other postmillenialists, and if the proponents of dispensationalism are increasingly marginalized in the church (I have no idea if this is true or not), it makes no difference: this is the teaching of the law, the prophets, and the apostles. We are deep into the apostasy and therefore it is no surprise that sound doctrine is deprecated. I love Mr. Larkin's book. Here you can read it online. By the way, Hal Lindsey is a dispensationalist, and I have enjoyed and been edified by every book of his I have read. He is passé these days, in part scorned because he predicted Jesus would return in, I believe, 1988. What is that to me? He did not insist on a date. He simply guessed wrong, wrongly interpreting the meaning of the term "generation" and making it mean "forty years." No teacher is inerrant. This is another conceit in the church, that the pastors speak "ex cathedra," like the pope. What a heresy! Hal Lindsey is not Harold Camping in any way, shape, or form. Jesus is still coming soon, same as He was in 1988, same as he was in apostolic days, according to Jesus himself, Rev. 22:20. Do not disbelieve His words!

God saves people who have reached the end of themselves! I used to love to listen to episodes of "Unshackled" on the radio.
