Billy & Dave

William C. Brownson

Tears and laughter, discouragement and hope, reminiscences and dreams—all of these met me as I devoured the pages of Bill and Helen’s Billy and Dave: From Brokenness to Blessedness. Our dear friends have written a little book with a large purpose. Its pages promise to lead us from the pain of our brokenness to the blessedness of Christ’s presence.

Courage to Pray

William C. Brownson

Real praying isn’t easy; sometimes it can be difficult. But God wants us to pray. Prayer is also God’s gift. He provides everything we need and then calls us to respond. Well, then, how do we capture excitement about prayer when we’ve lost the heart to pray? Dr. Brownson doesn’t intend this book to be merely a call to prayer. Rather, his purpose is to inspire courage to pray, to leave us saying “I think I can do that. I …

When we see them in the fuller light of the …

Applied Christianity: Studies in James

The New Testament letter of James is passionately practical. It breathes down-to-earth intensity. The author yearns to see the realities of the gospel translated into daily life.

Come Lord Jesus!

William C. Brownson Uncategorized

READ : Revelation 22:6-21 The Bible ends with grand invitations: for us to come to Christ, and for Christ to come again. Think of this friends: Three times in the final chapter of Revelation the risen Lord assures his people, “I am coming soon” (vv. 7, 12, 20). The first two times, it’s “Behold, I am coming soon.” The last one: “Yes” or “Surely I am coming soon!” What are we to make of this, nearly 2,000 years after the …
