Sacred Sleep: Bible Verses for Bedtime Audiobook

Sacred Sleep: Bible Verses for Bedtime

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: November 2019

Peace. Where does it come from? In John 14:27, Jesus says, 'Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you.' The follower of Christ believes peace comes only from Him - both in this world and in the next - through the hearing of His word, by the power of His Spirit. His Word makes me wise (Matthew 7:24). It gives me fellowship with Him (Luke 8:21). It sanctifies me (John 17:17). Indeed, it is the very source of my faith (Romans 10:17). Sacred Sleep was created with this Biblical model of peace in mind, to form a unique bedtime experience that will help you get the rest you need while deepening your faith and drawing you closer to God. Combined with a scholarly Introduction by Robert J. Bagley, this groundbreaking sleep aid contains some of the most well-loved verses in Scripture, carefully selected and presented in such a way as to let the water of the Word and worship wash over you every time you experience them. Our prayer is that not only will you obtain 'sound wisdom and discretion' from these verses (Proverbs 3:21), but that "you will [also] lie down and your sleep will be sweet." (Proverbs 3:24) So turn off the day (Matthew 6:34), and invite the Lord into a peaceful time of Sacred Sleep tonight.

Witness Christmas: An Intimate Celebration of Scripture and Song Audiobook

Witness Christmas: An Intimate Celebration of Scripture and Song

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: November 2019

In Luke 2:14, God's angelic host proclaims to the shepherds outside Bethlehem, "Peace on Earth! And good will to all who please Him!" In Philippians 4:8-9, Paul lays out what true worship looks like. Then, he connects it directly to peace. In both cases, the source of peace is the same: The Word of God. It makes me wise (Matthew 7:24). It gives me fellowship with Him (Luke 8:21). It sanctifies me (John 17:17). Indeed, it is the source of my faith (Romans 10:17). "Witness Christmas" was created with these biblical models of peace in mind. It combines holy Scripture with the soothing Word-centered modern folk hymns of Ordinary Time to create a truly unique worship experience that we hope draws you closer to God and brings you peace, both in this life and the next. Blessings today and Merry Christmas!

Shorter Westminster Catechism Audiobook

Shorter Westminster Catechism

Author: Steve Cook Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: October 2019

This book includes all 107 questions and answers of the Shorter Westminster Catechism. There are two versions. The first is a modernized, formal equivalency (i.e. a word-for-word modernization, no paraphrases). And the other is an exact reproduction of the original 17th century document. In addition, the audio version is designed in such a way as to facilitate a "flash card" style of listening, with at least 1.5 seconds of silence in between each question and answer, to allow for pausing while memorizing. A complete tracklisting PDF may be downloaded at 5talentsaudio.com/swc It is our prayer that this work will help you "present yourself to God approved; a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." ~2Tim2:15 (RGT) Steve Cook

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God Audiobook

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

Author: Jonathan Edwards Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: October 2019

This is the is the full sermon of Jonathan Edward's 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God' with a contemporary theological introduction written by Robert J. Bagley, MA. Referred to by theological historians as the "Most famous sermon ever preached on American soil," 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God' is a sermon Jonathan Edwards preached to his own congregation in Northampton, Massachusetts, to little or no effect, and again on July 8, 1741 in Enfield, Connecticut to great effect! It is possible that his own congregation suffered from the proverbial "familiarity often breads contempt" or the Scripture that Jesus stated in Matthew 13:57, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house." It took preaching this in someone else's pulpit for it to have the impact it deserved. Tradition has it that many women in the Enfield congregation had been praying for revival and for this message prior to this famous sermon from the pulpit-visiting Edwards. In fact, Edwards was not even scheduled to preach this day and was asked at the last minute to do so which is why it is said he basically buried his head in his notes and read this timeless sermon word for word. However, it was the Holy Spirit's anointing behind the words, not the engagement of the preacher, that caused many during the sermon to interrupt with moaning, weeping, and cries of 'What shall I do to be saved?' We know you will enjoy this re-presentation and introduction and it is our hope and prayer you also get it on audio where Steve Cook (6-time, #1 Best Selling, faith-based narrator and actor) does a masterful work of reciting this famous sermon that still has the power to save in the 21st century! God Bless and please share both the written and audio versions with your friends on social media. You never know who's life will be changed!

Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation Audiobook

Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation

Author: Paul Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: November 2018

These are full, unabridged, uninterrupted versions of The Books of Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians, read by best-selling faith-based narrator, Steve Cook. They contain no commentary or other human adornment; only the pure, living and active Word of God; profitable for teaching, convicting, correcting, and instructing in righteousness. The readings are taken from the Revised Geneva Translation of the Holy Bible. The RGT is a 21st Century update of the 1599 Geneva Bible. It eliminates archaic and potentially distracting 16th Century words, phrases, and punctuation, while at the same time maintaining the strict attention to original intent for which that version of The Holy Bible has always been known. In scholarly terms, it is a formal equivalency, based on the Byzantine text-type family of manuscripts. At this writing, the RGT is one of only two major modern translations of the Holy Bible to do so. The other is the NKJV. All other modern translations, including the NASB, ESV, NIV, and NLT, use the shorter Alexandrian text-type family of manuscripts as their base text, which excludes passages such as Mark 16:9-20, John 7:53-8:11, and the "Johannine Comma" of 1John 5:7-8. In addition, the RGT strives to preserve the textual cadence and poetry that is so essential to Elizabethan literature. Just as in all preceding centuries, Biblical text in the 1500's was meant to be heard and seen, as much as read, because so many of those who received it were illiterate and needed to memorize it and speak it back to each other often in order to facilitate meditation. And so the living and active characteristic of God's word is very much kept in mind on these recordings.

Book of Daniel Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation Audiobook

Book of Daniel Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation

Author: Steve Cook Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: September 2018

This is a full, unabridged, uninterrupted version of The Book of Daniel, read by best-selling faith-based narrator, Steve Cook. It contains no commentary or other human adornment; only the pure, living Word of God; profitable for teaching, convicting, correcting, and instructing in righteousness. The reading is taken from the Revised Geneva Translation of the Holy Bible. The RGT is a 21st Century update of the 1599 Geneva Bible. It eliminates archaic and potentially distracting 16th Century words, phrases, and punctuation, while at the same time maintaining the strict attention to original intent for which that version of The Holy Bible has always been known. In scholarly terms, it is a formal equivalency, featuring elements of both the Alexandrian and Byzantine text-types, predominantly the latter (e.g. it excludes the doxology of Matthew 6:13b, but includes Mark 16:9-20, John 7:53-8:11 and the Johannine Comma of 1John 5:7). Examples of translations which use the Alexandrian text-type include the NIV, NASB, and ESV. Examples of the Byzantine text-type include the KJV, NKJV, and the 1599 Geneva Bible. In addition, the RGT strives to preserve the textual cadence and poetry that is so essential to Elizabethan literature. Just as in all preceding centuries, Biblical text in the 1500’s was meant to be heard and seen, as much as read, because so many of those who received it were illiterate and needed to memorize it and speak it back to each other often in order to facilitate meditation.

Book of Revelation Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation Audiobook

Book of Revelation Audiobook: From The Revised Geneva Translation

Author: Steve Cook Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: August 2018

This is the full, uninterrupted reading of the Book of Revelation, performed by 5-time #1 Best Selling Faith-based Narrator, Steve Cook. The word Revelation, according to Webster’s, is, “an act of revealing or communicating divine truth…something that is revealed by God to humans…and an apocalyptic writing addressed to early Christians of Asia Minor and included as a book in the New Testament — called also Apocalypse.” The Apostle John was given this Revelation while he was exiled for his faith on the (Greek) Island of Patmos. Legend has it that John was the only one of Jesus’ 12 original Disciples (including Matthias, not Judas) who was not martyred for his faith. We can see that his living also came with the great responsibility of “penning” this book, along with several epistles and the Book of John in the New Testament. In this stunning audiobook performance, Mr. Cook reads the text with the passion and anointing God’s Holy Word requires, without sacrificing professionalism or clarity. The Book of Revelation is a prophetic, supernatural look into the future of end-times and apocalyptic events; events that filmmakers have (and will) fall short of replicating in any motion picture. Hear (and “see” with your mind’s eye) how many of these the allegorical references, written roughly 2000 years ago, are coming to pass; references like chip technology and cryptocurrency, which are poised to be used by both God and the Antichrist – Revelation 13:17. Get ready to be taken up to heaven, to see and hear the celestial worship of God, and then back down into this apocalyptic era of events here on earth. God Bless you as you listen and enjoy! “Those who have an ear, let them hear, what the Spirit says to the churches.” Robert J. Bagley, MA

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Judith Audiobook

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Judith

Author: M.A., Robert J. Bagley Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2018

In modern times, the Apocrypha has only been excluded from the Old Testament in some Protestant publications. The idea that these books are forbidden is viewed both as myth and fact by many Christian scholars, with the reasonable course left in the midst of divided opinion being to study and understand these books. Jesus himself is said to reference texts from the Apocrypha using the Old Testament language which was familiar to those he was teaching. It is also interesting to note that the Apostolic Fathers of the Early Church referenced the Apocrypha, and quoted from it as they did the Old Testament. It was hard not to do so, as the Jewish Old Testament included the Apocrypha. The Book of Judith, tells the story of a beautiful widow who bravely saves her besieged city of Jerusalem from the Assyrian army. As is so common among all biblical and apocryphal stories, the underlying theme of this book is faith and obedience under seemingly impossible circumstances.. Aside from including an unusual literary device (Judith doesn't even appear in the book until Chapter 8) this 4th book of the official Old Testament Apocrypha also dramatically shows the kind of woman God favors - not necessarily the one who is most talented or brave or even beautiful, but the one who prays first and foremost and is obedient in pursuit of His pleasure before her own comfort.

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Sara (The Book of Tobit) Audiobook

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Sara (The Book of Tobit)

Author: M.A., Robert J. Bagley Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2018

Read for you by Best-Selling Narrator, Steve Cook, Sara is found in the Book of Tobit in the Apocrypha. So as not to confuse; this is not Abraham's wife from the book of Genesis. Sara is miserable because of numerous marital misfortunes and she eventually prays to God that he would let her die. Her story is intertwined with that of Tobit, a righteous man who lived in Nineveh (a town many miles away) near the time of Jonah, the biblical Prophet. Tobit, for reasons of his own, also prays to God to allow him to die at the very same time Sara does. The intertwining of these two stories is reinforced by the fact that almost immediately after Sara ends her prayer, the book mysteriously changes in tense from 1st person (Tobit) to the 3rd person. In addition, the Archangel Raphael is sent to minister to both Tobit and Sara at the end of Chapter 3. Thus, it seems 'another voice' quite literally has taken over the story at the beginning of Chapter 4. Sara's faithful prayers and obedience to God brought her blessings beyond anything she could have ever imagined. In modern times, the Apocrypha has only been excluded from the Old Testament in some Protestant publications. The idea that these books are forbidden is viewed both as myth and fact by many Christian scholars, with the reasonable course left in the midst of divided opinion being to study and understand these books. Jesus himself is said to reference texts from the Apocrypha using the Old Testament language which was familiar to those he was teaching.

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Esther Audiobook

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Esther

Author: M.A., Robert J. Bagley Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2018

Read for you by Best-Selling Narrator, Steve Cook, Esther's story is the basis for the Festival of Purim; a joyous commemoration of God's salvation of the Jewish people. Esther acted against the social and political norms of her day to win a victory against misplaced political power. The Book of Esther continues the theme of God's promise to bless the Jewish people given in the Book of Genesis, and His providence and sovereignty over all things. The Apocrypha contains what is known as the 'Rest of Esther', an additional 10 verses of Chapter 10 of the biblical Book of Esther, as well as 6 more full Chapters. In modern times, the Apocrypha (and the 'Rest of Esther' along with it) has only been excluded from the Old Testament in some Protestant publications. Jesus himself is said to reference texts from the Apocrypha using the Old Testament language which was familiar to those he was teaching. It is also interesting to note that the Apostolic Fathers of the Early Church referenced the Apocrypha, and quoted from it as they did the Old Testament. It was hard not to do so, as the Jewish Old Testament included the Apocrypha.

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Susanna Audiobook

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Susanna

Author: M.A., Robert J. Bagley Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2018

Read for you by Best-Selling Narrator, Steve Cook, Susanna is found in the Apocrypha. It is sometimes called, 'The History of Susanna.' She was very beautiful and feared the Lord, having been raised by righteous parents who instructed her in Mosaic law. After being wrongly accused of a crime, and sentenced to death, Susanna cries out to God, Who hears her and sends a young Daniel (yes, the very same) to her rescue. Daniel conducts a clever investigation and convinces her judges to change their minds and side with Susanna, condemning her accusers to death instead. Daniel's wisdom was respected from that day forward. Much debate continues over which books should be considered part of Holy Scripture to this day. Various church councils have made different decisions about what should be included and which should not. But, ALL Christians who are serious about their walk in the Christian faith should read the Apocrypha, ponder its place in Christian history, compare what the great church scholars have said concerning it, consider why Jesus himself referred to it, and above all, prayerfully understand its significant contributions to the ultimate message of salvation, made available by Jesus the Messiah.
