The first of these is this outstanding classic called The Cost of Discipleship. In my humble opinion, no preacher of the Word should miss this.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

“When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” With these words, in The Cost of Discipleship, Dietrich Bonhoeffer gave powerful voice to the millions of Christians who believe personal sacrifice is an essential component of faith. Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor and theologian, was an exemplar of sacrificial faith: he opposed the Nazis from the first and was eventually imprisoned in Buchenwald and hung by the Gestapo in 1945. The Cost of Discipleship, first published in German in 1937, was Bonhoeffer’s answer to the questions, “What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us to-day?” Bonhoeffer’s answers are rooted in Lutheran grace and derived from Christian scripture (almost a third of the book consists of an extended meditation on the Sermon on the Mount). The book builds to a stunning conclusion: its closing chapter, “The Image of Christ,” describes the believer’s spiritual life as participation in Christ’s incarnation, with a rare and epigrammatic confidence: “Through fellowship and communion with the incarnate Lord,” Bonhoeffer writes, “we recover our true humanity, and at the same time we are delivered from that individualism which is the consequence of sin, and retrieve our solidarity with the whole human race.” —Michael Joseph Gross

Product Description

One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus

What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between “cheap grace” and “costly grace.” “Cheap grace,” Bonhoeffer wrote, “is the grace we bestow on ourselves…grace without discipleship….Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know….It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life.”

The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

The next is one of  my favorite books on the Cross.  In our Church in Pampanga (CBC) we usually exposit one of the 50 reasons every Lord’s Supper.  It has tremendously blessed our church in so doing.  May the grace of the Cross be learned and cherished by all.

A Prodigal God, A Prodigal Son, and a Prodigal Sermon

Two of my favorite authors wrote masterpieces about Luke 15 late last 2008.

The Prodigal God

This was Tim Keller’s masterpiece.  Actually I like it better than John Macarthur’s A Tale of Two Sons which becomes a bit pushy on the last part when it claims that the ending of the whole of it is murder.  Doubtless, there is some basis but that, to me is drawing too much.

A Tale of Two Sons

Nevertheless, it is vintage Macarthur.  Very textual and clear as Macarthur can get.

They also inspired me to see the linkage of the Prodigal Son’s tale with the text of 1 Cor 13, the famous LOVE Chapter.  Did I succeed in relating the two?  Here is my feeble attempt.

The Lord’s Supper and Salvation, Are they Related?

Do you yearn for the Lord Supper or is it just a routine done in church?

Do you celebrate your salvation or you’re already so used to it?

The two are closely-related.

I was invited last January to preach about the Lord’s Supper in a growing church in the rural outskirts of Pampanga.

I tried to show them that the Lord’s Supper is a picture of the saving work of Christ.

Abraham and Isaac and the Wonder of Christmas

Recently the Bible Reading is about Genesis 22.  Remember Abraham’s offering of Isaac? I was in the middle of reading this and then came an invitation for me to speak about the wonder of Christmas.

So can those two be related? I thought so.  Here is me last 2009 Dec, attempting to juxtapose the two themes together.

May you also be caught in wonder like I was.

The Kindness and Severity of God

Here’s a sermon I preached recently in Bacolod. It’s about the kindness and severity of God.  The longest Bible Reading perhaps that you would hear in a sermon.

It’s in tagalog though.  Sana’y pagpalain kayo despite the limitations.
