Cris Simpson of wtsbooks.com writes:
Starr Meade’s Most Important Thing provides a comprehensive, multi-year Bible curriculum best suited for middle-school and late elementary students. The workbook format gives plenty of practice in finding and analyzing passages, and the tests provide a regular check on comprehension. Meade draws attention to the different genres of Scripture and highlights God’s unfolding revelation. This set will provide an excellent foundation for a lifetime of Bible study, and adults are likely to find gaps in their own knowledge as well. Homeschool families will appreciate the flexibility of the format, and those with multiple children will be pleased that packages are available with and without answer keys.
Product Description: Using an easy-to-follow study guide format, this overview of the Bible leads students of middle or early high school age through Scripture, training them to grow in knowledge and love for God’s Word.
The Bible is often neglected or weakly emphasized in the education of our children. However, author Starr Meade contends that God’s Word is the most important thing a Christian will ever study. This introductory overview of the message of the Bible encourages middle and high school students to explore God’s Word for themselves. Available in multiple volumes or as a set, The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Study leads young teens through the story of the Bible chronologically, teaching them about important themes and topics, such as the role of God as the main character of his own story and the relationship between Scripture’s divine inspiration and human authorship.
Students can either use the text as a supplementary companion to their own reading of Scripture, or they can simply use the study guide to move through the Bible from beginning to end.
In early July, WTSBooks.com will move from its present location on the campus of Westminster Theological Seminary to a new, larger warehouse location.
WTSBooks.com exists to serve the Kingdom by serving both the Westminster Theological Seminary community as well as the broader church through the distribution of high quality, biblically faithful, Reformed books and resources. Over the past five years God has tremendously blessed the work of the bookstore.
In the Lord’s mercy, He has carried us and even caused us to grow - so much so that we can no longer operate in the space that is available to us. With over 40,000 customers nationwide, the Lord is extending our influence and enabling us to provide meaningful support to some great publishing projects. More and more, we are being used of God to be a pebble that can start a wave to market some great titles to the broader Church.
So, as of June 15, 2010, the physical portion of the bookstore will come to a close. We will be relocating to a new warehouse facility that will allow us to more effectively fulfill our mission while giving us the opportunity to grow and pursue some exciting new projects.
As evidenced in much of Christian publishing industry, capitalism left alone will produce more and more of what our itching ears long to hear since that is what sells and is most easy to market.
Being an alternative voice to this trend, we market books that we believe are high quality, Reformed and biblically faithful. Pursuing this ambition and serving students to the best of our ability, while not yielding a loss to the Seminary, has been a real challenge in a post-Amazon industry that operates with very little profit margin.
We continue to covet your prayer and support as we walk a knife’s edge in terms of profitability. As always, any of the small surplus we gain goes to the Seminary. By supporting WTSBooks.com you are supporting men and women training at Westminster Theological Seminary.
Below is a list of frequently asked questions concerning the details of our move. If you have any additional questions, please contact Micah Bickford at email@example.com.

The Eighty-First Annual Commencement
Westminster Theological Seminary
May our great God and Savior use you as his instruments to bring his Gospel across the globe.
“The central work of God’s kingdom is change. God accomplishes this work as the Holy spirit empowers people to bring his Word to others. We bring more than solutions, strategies, principles, and commands. we bring the greatest story ever told, to the story of the Redeemer. Our goal is to help one another live with a “God’s story” mentality. Our mission is to teach, admonish, and encourage one another to rest in his sovereignty, rather than establishing our own; to rely on his grace rather than performing our won; and to submit to his glory rather than seeking our own. This is the work of the kingdom of God: people in the hands of the Redeemer, daily functioning as his tools of lasting change.” - Paul David Tripp, Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands

Carolyn McCulley, author of Radical Womanhood, writes:
The ambitions women have often create feminine stereotypes–think gold-digger, homewrecker or corporate ice queen. But those caricatures just point to the seriousness of women’s ambitions. . .
That’s why I think it is important for women to read Rescuing Ambition, Dave Harvey’s new book on the topic. We all have ambition, but where it is aimed and how it is used is worth serious consideration. With self-effacing humor, Dave reveals how being wired for glory can either corrupt us or lead us to a divine agenda. It’s a great read–meaty yet conversational. I highly recommend it.

George Washington’s Sacred Fire
By Peter A. Lillback
Providence Forum Press
Paperback - 1208 Pages
Listen to an interview with Peter Lillback by Al Mohler entitled Will the Real George Washington Please Stand Up.
Publisher Description: George Washington, the uniquely venerated Founding Father of our nation, valiant warrior of the American Revolution and devoted family man has been the subject of countless writings by scholars and storytellers alike.What sets George Washington’s Sacred Fire apart from all previous literary works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback’s research, revealing a world icon driven by the highest of ideals, not the least of which was his genuine Christian faith.
A vast number of books on George Washington are characterized by anecdotal recountings and factually unsubstantiated conclusions that,up to now,few have strived to correct by painting an accurate, meticulously detailed portrait. American history bookshelves are replete with volumes on George Washington, penned by living men forcing dead men to perform tricks of the writers” choosing. Only do George Washington’s own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations.
Growing up in a single parent household, George was faced with similar circumstances and challenges as many throughout history and indeed today. Yet, Dr. Lillback draws on primary source research to paint a picture of a man, who, faced with these challenges and circumstances, ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character” honesty, justice, equity, perseverance, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history. Major General Nathanael Greene, writing of his commander in chief, declared, “I hope we shall be taught to copy his example, and to prefer the love of liberty, in this time of public danger, to all the soft pleasures of domestic life.” These are values and determination that are widely absent in today’s society.
Where a nation begins distinctly determines the course it treads. George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization.—Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports,—he said in his farewell address. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, will reveal to the reader a newly inspirational image of General and President George Washington
About the Author: Peter A. Lillback is president of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. He also serves as the president of The Providence Forum. Previously he served as pastor of Proclamation Presbyterian Church in Bryn Mawr, PA.
