Temptation to sin is inevitable. But does that mean we can't have victory over it? Although every believer is targeted by evil and confronted with temptation that comes in many ways, understanding the principles in God's Word (as to how we can resist it and triumph over it) will equip and encourage us in our Christian lives.

This study is a verse-by-verse exposition dealing with practical instruction for the local church and
Paul's first letter to the believers in Corinth was originally written to answer these questions. Because these problems are still prevalent in society, Paul's letter remains an important teaching message for us today.
Are denominations Scriptural? For what sins may a person be excommunicated from the church? Is it right for a Christian to go to law against another believer? What should we think about marriage and divorce? What is the place of women in the church? What is the gift of tongues? What will the resurrection body be like?
This study will help you know the answer to these questions. This letter was originally written to answer certain questions that had arisen in the assembly at Corinth. But many of these problems are still with us and will be until the end of the age.View full product details

The letters of John are practical. They can be disturbing, too, for John allows no shades of gray in our lives. With him, things are black or white, right or wrong, true or false, good or bad. "God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all."
We are living in days when, so far as the world is concerned, the prevailing philosophy is that morals are relative and religion should be synthesized. John’s writings blow such fuzzy cobwebs right out of the minds of God’s people.
This study will challenge you to face squarely the absolutes of the Christian faith.View full product details
When Peter wrote this letter to believers in Asia Minor, persecution was increasing and they were under pressure to deny their faith. Peter’s letter is full of practical instruction on attitudes and behavior to strengthen their faith and witness. The world has always been (and will continue to be) hostile to Jesus Christ and His followers. In light of that, the letter of 1 Peter contains both relevant and needed teaching and encouragement for Christians today.View full product details

In the meantime, Paul experiences some of his darkest hours.Trouble appeared on every side. "Without were fightings; within were fears." Paul’s detractors made a threefold assault upon him; they attacked his person, his teaching, and his character.
