No book, and certainly not The Hiding Place, emerges ex nihilo, like Venus from the sea. Though the gospel it shares and the Savior it exalts are timeless, Corrie ten Boom’s 1971 classic could not have sold millions of copies and helped shape the faith of a generation by itself. A number of specific people, events, and issues came together providentially to provide a bracing wind for this unforgettable volume’s literary sails. Nearly half a century on, The Hiding Place still thrills and challenges us with its portrait of an imperfect servant of Jesus the Victor determined to defy evil, defend the weak, and endure hardship.
The Seven Signs of Jesus: God’s Proof for the Open-Minded focuses on the Savior through the lens of the famous seven signs presented in the Gospel of John, which are specifically given so that readers will “believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
However, the signs do much more than offer evangelistic proof—as if they were simply parts of a mathematical equation or elements of a formula in physics. They reveal Jesus as the One who offers to be with us through all of life: during our celebrations, on our sickbeds, in our disabilities, amid our feasting, in our dangers, alongside us in our spiritual searching, and when we face our deaths. In all these things, they point the way to a vibrant, life-changing faith.
The Bible can seem like a big, intimidating book—mysterious, tedious, and often hard to understand. Written over a span of fifteen hundred years, two millennia ago, God’s Word sometimes feels like a mishmash of stories and literary styles. What can be done to make it more accessible to twenty-first-century readers?
Stan Guthrie’s answer: begin by zooming in on one key verse for each of the Bible’s sixty-six books. Seeking to bring clarity and simplicity to the study of God’s Word, Guthrie has written a concise, easy-to-digest collection of wisdom anchored in one verse for each book, from Genesis to Revelation—a verse that summarizes or lays the foundation for that book, placing it in context with the rest of the Scriptures.
A Concise Guide to Bible Prophecy: 60 Predictions Everyone Should Know
This fascinating, faith-building book avoids the excesses of much contemporary Bible prophecy interpretation while offering solid spiritual nourishment, no matter when the end comes. A Concise Guide to Bible Prophecy details 60 key predictions, from Genesis to Revelation, that give us insights about ourselves, God, and the future. This book also provides tools that will help us navigate the Bible’s prophecies so we can avoid spiritual disaster and understand God’s Word better for our daily lives.
“Stan Guthrie is a cogent thinker and graceful writer I love to read. While A Concise Guide to Bible Prophecy happens to cover an area of personal interest for me, Stan can draw me into any subject simply by the way he examines and explains it.”

The Sacrament of Evangelism, with Jerry Root
Much of the church in America has lost its evangelistic zeal and forgotten how to re-ignite it; this book is an attempt to light the fuse of the powder keg so that the church, long-distracted by so many things, might return to its primary mission in the world.
We do not take Christ to anyone; He is already there. We go to make explicit what we see Him doing implicitly. It is not a question of whether God is at work in His world . . . Our hope is to see more of God’s people at work with Him! Learn about why we share our faith, Christ’s role in our evangelism, the deep longings in all our hearts, and how to effectively live a sacramentally evangelistic lifestyle.
We are offering a way of looking at life and the world that is open to God’s presence everywhere. This approach is called sacramental. And where better to experience God’s presence than in His workplace? This is the Sacrament of Evangelism.
This volume, now in its second edition, is a standard text in missions courses but is geared to laity.
