We're grateful for the following endorsements for Gospel Meditations for Prayer, our most recent installment in the Gospel Meditations series. It was a joy to work on the project with Joe Tyrpak and Carl Trueman, a welcome guest to ChurchWorksMedia. The book is in its second printing and may be ordered here. May the Lord be magnified.
JOEL BEEKE, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan:
"Brief and biblical, these 31 meditations are full of sharp edges. They lead us to pray as cross-bearing disciples of Christ. Yet Anderson, Tyrpak, and Trueman comfort us with Christ's perfect grace for fallen people. So Gospel Meditations for Prayeris an encouraging book, but one designed to stretch you."
DON WHITNEY, author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life; Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky:
"Prayer is more than just talking to God or asking things from God. Such a truncated view of prayer overlooks the prior necessity of a relationship with God. That's why a proper understanding of prayer requires a proper understanding of the gospel, that is, the message about having a relationship with God. This book by Chris Anderson, Joe Tyrpak and Carl Trueman is a signpost at the intersection of prayer and the gospel that provides practical direction on both subjects."
DANNY BROOKS, Pastor of Heritage Bible Church in Greer, South Carolina:
"Rich in the Word and rich in Christ, Gospel Meditations for Prayer is soul-nourishing, prayer-inducing reading. Chris, Joe, and Carl point us to a great God who gives us great incentives to pray."
DEREK THOMAS, Senior Minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina; Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia:
"'An apple a day keeps the doctor away,'or so my mother told me as a boy. But a surer aphorism would be 'a Scripture meditation a day keeps the devil at bay.' And here, three tried and trusted men take you into the Scriptures and provide you with a brief meditation designed to be fodder for thought and prayer—an ideal method to begin each day for a month. Gospel-saturated insights designed for the likes of you and me."
JIM HAMILTON, author of God's Glory in Salvation through Judgment; Associate Professor of Biblical Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky:
"God's people need the gospel, and God's people need to pray. What a blessing to have a resource that brings those two things together!"
ANDY NASELLI, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Bethlehem College and Seminary in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
"John Newton wrote, 'Thou art coming to a King; large petitions with thee bring. For His grace and power are such, none can ever ask too much.' Pray big. This devotional helps."
