How it All Began: Studies in Genesis

Someone once said that if we are to understand ourselves, “we need to know where we’ve been.” Surely that is a critical issue in our time. Many struggle with understanding themselves, their relationship with the world and their relationship with God. Where can we look for answers?

How to Live Happily

Ours is an age which insists on knowing “how.” We are impatient with theories we can’t practice and instructions we can’t follow. If we’re to do something, we want someone to show us a workable plan, to lead us, as we say, down a “plain path.”

When it comes to knowing how to live, all of us share some of that ineptness. We greatly need both direction and inner strength. In Jesus Christ we can learn how to live – and live happily.

Billy & Dave

This is a story about two sons, Billy and Dave, and the family of which they were a part. It is also a story of loss—the different kinds of losses that Billy and Dave each experienced and the things their family lost as a result. In the early 1950s Bill and Helen Brownson were the parents of a young and growing brood. Deeply devoted to one another and to the Lord, committed to serving him in ministry, the Brownsons were the very picture of a happy, active Christian family.

Prayer

Courage to Pray

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 can learn to pray.”

1 Corinthians
William C. Brownson

Life in the Light of the Gospel

When Paul wrote to the Corinthians that he had decided to “know nothing” among them “except Jesus Christ and him crucified,” he was not claiming for himself a narrow, limited message. The apostle obviously addressed a number of doctrinal issues, ethical concerns and church problems. But he approached every one of those in a particular way – in the light of the gospel, in the light of Christ crucified and risen for us. He brought to bear upon every issue he met, the mighty realities of the Gospel. Christ was always at the center.
