SCRIPTURE : This is the ESV Edition. The original version of the book (the NASB 1995 version) is also still available.
The Scriptures are the greatest treasure that a person can possess. They are the only source of inspired, inerrant, and infallible revelation regarding God, His will, and His works––especially His work of redemption through Jesus Christ. The Christian cannot hold too high a view of the Bible or exalt it beyond what it deserves. For these reasons and many others, the Christian should consider the study of the Scriptures to be his or her primary and lifelong task. In this workbook, the fifth of his Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith series, Paul Washer helps the student use the Scriptures to learn more about the Scriptures and discover why and how the Bible should be studied and obeyed. This workbook can be used as a 7-week study for individuals, families, Sunday school classes, small groups, and churches.
FASTING : This is the ESV Edition. The original version of the book (the NASB 1995 version) is also still available. The oft-forgotten discipline of fasting is a devotion of great usefulness that unfortunately has had a severe lack of information written about it and has garnered an abundance of misunderstandings and misinformation regarding it. In “Understanding the Discipline of Fasting,” the fourth of his Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith series, Paul Washer repeatedly points the student to the Scriptures to expose these erroneous ideas and to help the people of God understand the proper place of fasting in the Christian life. Also included in these pages is an abridged and modernized work from the Scottish theologian Thomas Boston on fasting and humiliation.
