The Crimson Thread Of The Bible
Countless people read the Bible with a desire to learn more about God, however, they often find the text difficult to understand and abandon their attempts to comprehend it. Indeed, pursuing answers for life can be frustrating unless you understand how the entire Word of God and life are strongly bound together by an intricate thread. The Crimson Thread Of The Bible reveals the story of God's faithfulness and determination to carry out His plan to redeem His fallen people. It reveals the constant, redemptive thread throughout the Bible that tells how God's Divine plan is fashioned in eternity and how the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to His plan.
“I love the personal, avuncular style of this book, The Crimson Thread of The Bible-it feels like the Apostle John at his age giving counsel to his church members-it reads like you are at the kitchen table sharing with me! Excellent text to accomplish an almost self-contradictory task: use a cognitive means [text] to motivate a whole-being response!"
Rev. Dr. Anthony G. Pappas, Executive Minister, The American Baptist churches of MA, Author of Healthy Esteem: Vital Ministry in the Small Membership Church, Entering the World of the Small Church, Inside The Small Church, Editor: The Five Stones Magazine
Who Do You Say I AM?
Award-winning author Joshua A. McClure confronts us with the question Jesus posed to his disciples: “Who do you say I am?” Do we simply give the equivocal answer, “God is a mystery”? Or have we real insight of the awesome God to whom we pledge our lives and futures? Following after God is more than going through the motions of church life. In Who Do You Say I AM? McClure inspires us to bring back spiritual power to our lives and see God as he is, by recapturing the sense of his everlasting divine presence. His flair for honest, down-to-earth biblical study can blaze a trail through your doubts and fears to embrace the question as never before: Who do you say I am?
Who Do You Say I AM? is without a doubt a clear, concise and comprehensive exploration of the Christian Doctrine of God. In an age when many are questioning long-held beliefs, this spirit-filled apologetic of God is engagingly refreshing, practically relevant, theologically sound and thoroughly biblical. It is a must read for all who seek to experience God, both intimately and corporately. Then, we will make the joyful discovery that God not only knows us, but has made himself known to us and desires that we know him.

Made For Glory
Through the ages, mankind has longed to understand and explain our origin. The Bible tells us we were created in the image and likeness of God and that God formed our body from the dust of the ground. But exactly how were we made? What was our form like? How did this body differ from Jesus when he took on human flesh? How do we rightly address the relationship between Creation and incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and re-creation?
In Made for Glory, award-winning author Joshua A. McClure combines testimony and biblical inquiry to unlock mysteries that have great implications for our lives today. His flair for graphic, powerful biblical study removes blinders and opens the way for deep reflection on past assumptions and misinformation about the purposes of God for his created beings. A must-read for anyone pursuing the truth of who you are and what it means to be made in God’s glorious image.
