“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” —2 Peter 3:18
How do Christians grow? Few question the call of the Bible to grow in godliness, but the answer to exactly how this happens is often elusive.
In this book, Dane Ortlund points believers to Christ, making the case that sanctification does not happen by doing more or becoming better, but by going deeper into the wondrous gospel truths that washed over them when they were first united to him.
Drawing on wisdom from figures throughout church history, Ortlund encourages readers to fix their gaze on Jesus in the battle against sin, casting themselves upon his grace and living out their invincible identity in Christ.
Pastor Dane Ortlund Explores Jesus’s Heart to Reveal His Tender Love for Sinners and Suffers
Christians know that God loves them, but can easily feel that he is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. As a result, they focus a lot—and rightly so—on what Jesus has done to appease God’s wrath for sin. But how does Jesus Christ actually feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?
This book draws us to Matthew 11, where Jesus describes himself as “gentle and lowly in heart,” longing for his people to find rest in him. The gospel flows from God’s deepest heart for his people, a heart of tender love for the sinful and suffering.
These chapters take us into the depths of Christ’s very heart for sinners, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of who Christ is and encouraging readers with the affections of Christ for his people. His longing heart for sinners comforts and sustains readers in their up-and-down lives.
- Draws on Writings from the Puritans: Including Thomas Goodwin, Richard Sibbes, John Bunyan, John Owen, and others
- Provides a Unique Perspective: Confronts readers’ typical thoughts on God’s heart
- Scripture-Based: Explores passages throughout the whole Bible to get a full picture of God’s heart for sinners
Dane Ortlund Explains That Hell Is Indeed Real, but Hope Comes through Jesus Christ
When individuals talk about an afterlife, they often talk about heaven and avoid any mention of hell. The idea of hell is uncomfortable and most people prefer to not discuss it. Given this reality, our society lacks an understanding of what hell is, why it exists, and how people can avoid it.
Pastor Dane Ortlund has written this Church Questions ebook to educate readers on the reality of hell and the hope found in Jesus Christ. Using a variety of biblical passages, Ortlund explains that God is just, righteous, and deals perfectly with humanity. In light of God’s holiness and our sin, we fall woefully short of heaven. Humanity deserves hell, but heaven is offered to believers through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Experience the Depth of the Psalms with Pastor and Author Dane Ortlund
The Psalms could be called the Bible’s devotional. Each psalm reflects on the greatness of who God is and how he cares for his people. Written with profound emotion, each psalm sheds light on the raw experiences of the human heart, revealing how God’s people should turn to him in times of anguish, pain, remorse, joy, and thanksgiving.
In the Lord I Take Refuge invites readers to experience the Psalms in a new way through heartfelt devotional content written by Dane Ortlund. Each reading is short enough to read in five minutes or less and will encourage believers to thoughtfully ponder and pray through each of the 150 Psalms. To further enhance the reading experience, this book features the full text of the English Standard Version Psalms; a large font; thick, cream-colored paper; and a ribbon marker to keep track of progress. All of these features, along with a helpful introduction on how to read the Psalms devotionally, encourage believers to pause and reflect on the riches of each text as they commune daily with the Lord.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” —Matthew 13:31–32
When Jesus began his ministry, he announced that the kingdom of God was at hand. But many modern-day Christians don’t really understand what the kingdom of God is or how it relates to the message of the gospel.
Defining kingdom as the King’s power over the King’s people in the King’s place, Patrick Schreiner investigates the key events, prophecies, and passages of Scripture that highlight the important theme of kingdom across the storyline of the Bible—helping readers see how the mission of Jesus and the coming of the kingdom fit together.

“When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’” —1 Corinthians 11:24
The Lord’s Supper is more than a church tradition or a complex doctrinal controversy—it has practical importance to our daily lives. When Jesus instituted the Supper, it was meant to strengthen the faith of his followers by reminding them of his promises. God has always made promises to his people through covenants, and along with them given signs and meals to point to and confirm his blessings. Looking at the unity of the covenants throughout the Bible, this book will help Christians recover the practical importance of the Lord’s Supper as both a sign and a meal of the new covenant blessings God has bestowed on believers in Christ.
When God-in-the-flesh showed up twenty centuries ago in Palestine, the religious PhDs rejected him and the prostitutes and social outcasts flocked to him. Why? Because the open welcome of divine grace that Jesus offers, open to anyone who would simply leave their moral resume at home, is not predictable. It is not safe. It is subversive...
In this book, Dane Ortlund reflects on this subversive grace as it uniquely emerges in each of the four Gospel accounts. In each Gospel, the message and mission of Jesus is deeply surprising:
- In Matthew, we see the surprise of disobedient obedience.
- In Mark, we see the surprise of the king undergoing the fate of a criminal.
- In Luke, we see the surprise of the insiders becoming outsiders and the outsiders becoming insiders.
- In John, we see the surprise of the Creator of the universe becoming one of his own creatures.
Such surprises confound our law-marinated hearts. But the good news that Jesus won with his own blood will not be tamed. This good news is defiant. This book exists to exult in this good news and the scandalous mercy Jesus loves to pour out on needy sinners—on people like you and me.
« Venez à moi, vous tous qui êtes fatigués et chargés, et je vous donnerai du repos. » Matthieu 11.28
Les chrétiens peuvent facilement avoir l’impression que Jésus est perpétuellement déçu et frustré par leur marche chrétienne, voire qu’il est même sur le point de les abandonner. Ils savent ce que Jésus a fait pour eux, mais ils ont souvent une connaissance superficielle de sa personne. Quels sont les sentiments qui l’animent lorsqu’il considère les péchés et les échecs de son peuple ?
Dans Matthieu 11, Jésus se décrit comme étant « doux et humble de cœur », désirant ardemment que son peuple trouve le repos en lui. Ce livre s’inspire de ses paroles, plongeant dans les passages de la Bible qui parlent de l’affection de Christ pour les pécheurs afin d’encourager les croyants las et chancelants dans leur cheminement vers le ciel.

Como os cristãos crescem? Poucas pessoas questionam o cha- mado bíblico para que cresçamos em piedade, mas a resposta para a forma exata como isso acontece é, em geral, imprecisa.
Neste livro, Dane Ortlund direciona os crentes a Cristo, argumentando que a santificação não ocorre quando fazem mais ou se tornam melhores, mas quando se aprofundam nas deslumbrantes verdades do Evangelho que os envolveram quando foram unidos a Cristo.
Valendo-se da sabedoria de figuras extraídas da história da Igreja, Ortlund encoraja os leitores a fixarem os olhos em Jesus durante a batalha contra o pecado, a se encomendarem à graça de Cristo e a vivenciarem a insuperável identidade que têm em Cristo.
“Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations.” —Genesis 17:4
Throughout the Bible, God has related to his people through covenants. It is through these covenant relationships, which collectively serve as the foundation for God’s promise to bring redemption to his people, that we can understand the advancement of his kingdom. This book walks through six covenants from Genesis to Revelation, helping us grasp the overarching narrative of Scripture and see the salvation God has planned for us since the beginning of time—bolstering our faith in God and giving us hope for the future.

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done, but who is He? What is His deepest heart for His people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said He is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who He is for sinners and sufferers today.
The Short Studies in Biblical Theology series is designed to help readers see the whole Bible as a unified story—culminating in Jesus. Insightful, accessible, and practical, these books are perfect for readers looking for bite-sized introductions to major subjects in biblical theology. The third volume in the series, Work and Our Labor in the Lord explores how work fits into the framework of the whole Bible—looking at the original creation purpose for work, how it was affected by the fall, and the hope for lasting good offered to all who toil and labor in the Lord today.
