For over fifty-eight years, William MacDonald addressed the key issues of Christianity in clear and simple terms. Leaving a promising business career for the Lord Jesus, he traveled worldwide, proclaiming the unsearchable riches of Christ. His more than eighty works are characterized by an economy of words that only comes by a major time investment in the Word. Although William MacDonald went to be with the Lord in 2008, his writing ministry continues to instruct and teach thousands of people today.
1 – What is the most important thing in life?
2 – Why is there any problem? Why is there any question about it?
3 – What is sin?
4 – You make me feel guilty. Don’t you want me to have a good self image?
5 – If good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell, then what do I have to worry about?
6 – Do you mean to say I’m as bad as a lot of other people I know?
7 – If I keep the Ten Commandments and do the best I can, isn’t that enough?
8 – If we can’t keep the Ten Commandments, why were they given?
9 – Isn’t there any way I can atone or make up for my own sins?
10 – Do you mean to say that I have been wrong in doing penance for my sins?
11 – What do you mean by repentance?
12 – Isn’t there some way I can earn or merit my salvation? That would please me very much.
13 – You keep saying that salvation is by grace. What do you mean by that?
14 – Then do I understand that you don’t believe in good works?
15 – I was baptized when I was a baby. Isn’t that enough?
16 – Look! Put it to me simply. What do I need in order to be saved?
17 – What do you mean by being born again?
18 – You say that the only way to be saved is through faith in Christ. Isn’t it narrow minded to think that there is only one way?
19 – What does it mean to have faith or to believe?
20 – Isn’t faith a leap in the dark?
21 – Isn’t the gospel too easy? Too cheap?
22 – How can I tell if I have believed in the right way, if I have enough faith, or if I have the right kind of faith?
23 – You say that you don’t have to do anything to be saved, that all you have to do is believe. Isn’t that a contradiction?
24 – How can I know that I’ll be able to hold out after I’m saved?
25 – If all you have to do is believe, then can’t you go out and live any way you want?
26 – If I sin after I’m saved, don’t I lose my salvation?
27 – But I know a man who was saved, then he sinned and was lost. What do you have to say to that?
28 – You say that when a person is saved, he receives forgiveness of sins. But what about sins committed after he is saved?
29 – What happens if, after I’m saved, I die with unconfessed sins?
30 – You say that Christ died for all. Why then aren’t all saved?
31 – If I trust Christ, will I have a great emotional experience?
32 – How will I know it when I am saved?
33 – Don’t I have to clean up my act before I come to Jesus?
34 – Isn’t it presumption for a person to say that he is saved?
35 – If you Christians are right, why are there so few of you?
36 – If God is all-powerful, why does He allow wars, tragedies, suffering, and sorrow?
37 – If God is a God of love, how could He send people to hell?
38 – What bothers me is that there are so many hypocrites in the church.
39 – I hesitate because I believe that all the church wants is my money.
40 – If I get saved, do I have to be baptized?
41 – I feel that I should trust Christ, and yet I am afraid to do it. Can you tell me what is the trouble?
42 – I’m afraid I will have to give up too much if I become a Christian. The cost is too high.
43 – I think I’ll put it off until later in life. Isn’t that OK?
44 – I admit that I could be killed suddenly in an accident, but what’s that about the Lord’s coming?
45 – Are you talking about the end of the world?
46 – Ok, then, tell me once more, as simply as you can, how I can be saved and sure of it.

As one reads through 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, a contemporary letter, it is obvious that Paul is free and moving about, engaged in evangelizing and strengthening churches. He has recently left Timothy in Ephesus(1 Tim. 1:3) and he has been with Titus in Crete(Tit. 1:5). In his letter he asks Titus to join him in Nicopolis (Tit. 3:12). Paul is happy and busy in the work of God.
As he writes 1 Timothy, Paul realizes that the years are passing and that his life will come to a close soon. He feels that marks of old age and there is always the possibility of persecution and sudden death. He is burdened to leave with Timothy some practical instructions concerning church organization and functioning. He writes that Timothy may know “how one ought to conduct himself in the house hold of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth” (Tim. 3:15 NASB).
It is a very practical book then, dealing with such matters as the role of the Law, the roles of the sexes, church leadership and practical godly living. The Christian today can be profoundly grateful that the Holy Spirit led Paul to pen these words to Timothy, his dear son in the faith and fellow-worker. Churches today desperately need these instructions.View full product details

As one reads through 1 Timothy and Titus, a contemporary letter, it is obvious that Paul is free and moving about, engaged in evangelizing and strengthening churches. He has recently left Timothy in Ephesus (1 Tim 1:3) and he has been with Titus in Crete (1 Tim 1:5). In his letter he asks Titus to join him in Nicopolis (Tit. 3:12). Paul is happy and busy in the work of God.
But when one reads 2 Timothy all is changed. He is now a prisoner, expecting not a release but execution (2 Tim. 2:6). The shadow of death hangs over him , unlike his earlier Roman imprisonment when he expected release (Philemon 22).
Paul is in Rome now (2 Tim. 1:17) but has recently been in Troas where he left his coat and books (2 Tim. 4:13). He may have been arrested and taken away quickly with no time to gather his personal belongings. Earlier he left Trophimus sick in Miletus and had left Erastus in Corinth (2 Tim. 4:20).
Others question the authorship on the basis of linguistic style or doctrinal approach. But a writer may use a very different vocabulary and writing style depending on his subject matter. A university professor will use very different styles in writing a scholarly dissertation or in penning an intimate letter to a family member. Paul claims to be the author (1 Tim. 1:1; 2 Tim. 1:1) and there is no convincing reason to doubt this. If the work is inspired of God, would there be deception and fraud? No, these letters carry the stamp of divine inspiration and approval. The reader today can study them diligently with confidence that they came from the hand of Paul. Through the centuries they have blessed and inspired the readers to live wholeheartedly for God.View full product details

An attempt has been made in the volume to reemphasize the sound Scriptural teaching of the “The Pilgrim’s Progress” especially to young people, and this is the sole explanation of its existence. Of its many imperfections none is more conscious than the author, but if it leads the reader to more diligent study of this immortal allegory, and also of Bunyan’s other words, especially Grace Abounding and The Holy War, he will feel amply repaid.
The contents of this book appeared originally in a series of weekly articles in “Words of Love,” a Sunday school magazine, and are now sent forth in this complete form with the earnest desire that the blessing of God may attend its reading, and that, as a result, many may be led to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and thus begin the pilgrim journey; and that those who are already treading the celestial highway, may be encouraged to go on the for God and to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.View full product details
