Books by Stan Gale
For Job, the process of grieving begins with acceptance, not by way of resigning himself to fate but by faith that knows and trusts the God he revered.
Job wrestles with the why of it all, not as an expression of unbelief but as an expression of faith.
The book of Job does not primarily present us with a theology of suffering as it does theology proper.
Thinking through the foolishness of preaching
The church needs to hear this blaring alarm and stop, drop, and pray.
The following is an excerpt from The Christian's Creed: Embracing the Apostolic Faith (Reformation Heritage Books, pp. 90-96)
In Christ, we who believe are part of a family.
Our sufferings now are not worth comparing to the glory that awaits us.
Peter looks to strengthen us to resist the efforts of our enemy the devil.
Humility operates in the fear of the Lord.
Those set apart as elders must be constantly on guard against pride and arrogance.
