Exalting God’s Glory. Explaining God’s Truth.

A Note From Pastor Tom

I am grateful you are visiting The Word Unleashed. It is a joy to serve as Pastor-Teacher at Countryside Bible Church, where I have the wonderful opportunity to preach God’s Word on Sunday mornings and evenings and to worship alongside people who love Christ and His Word.

Consider partnering with us by subscribing to the ministry and praying for us. I look forward to our partnership, and it is my prayer that the power of God’s Word will be unleashed in your life.

Part 8

God’s sovereignty and providence go hand-in-hand, and it is vital that every Christian know the Bible’s teaching on such doctrines and live in light of such key truths. Scripture teaches that not only does God preserve all the things that He created, but He also governs all the things to ensure that the purposes for which He created them are in fact accomplished.

Part 7

The Bible speaks often about two great truths: sovereignty and providence. For Christians, we have to understand that our lives must be anchored to these doctrines, no matter the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Part 6

The great story and theme of the Bible is that God is redeeming a people, by His Son, for His Son, to His own glory. Friend, are you one of God’s redeemed? Have you been saved by the blood of Jesus Christ? The Bible teaches that the Eternal Son of God came into the world to accomplish salvation for His people—and He did so for the glory of God.

Part 5

To discover the meaning and message of the Bible, you must be committed to reading and studying it. And when you do, you will come to understand the grand story of Scripture: God is redeeming a people by His Son, Jesus Christ, for His Son, to the praise of His own glory. And John chapter 17 gives us a glimpse of that great story.

Part 4

The Bible teaches that it is God alone who is great. He is unmatched and unrivaled, meaning there is no one like Him. This is the consistent testimony of Scripture and such a vital truth that we as Christians must embrace and champion. It is God’s greatness that is the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Part 3

Sadly, many professing Christians believe that God is just like us; therefore, many have misunderstood, or even missed altogether, the truth that God alone is great. As Christians, we must recapture, understand, and embrace God’s greatness. But we must do so by searching the Scriptures to develop a biblical view of God.

Part 2

Tragically, the Christian landscape is cluttered with cheap substitutes for Scripture. And many professing Christians believe the Bible is not enough, even though they may never say that out loud. Friend, what do you believe about the sufficiency of the Bible?

Part 1

One of the most foundational truths that we, as Christians, must always remember is that the Bible is sufficient, it is enough. The Bible ground zero in our fight for both our individual and corporate spiritual survival.

Part 8

Is there a kind of boasting that brings glory and honor to Christ. According to Philippians 1, the apostle Paul wants all Christians to glory or boast in Christ. This simply means that our confidence, our trust, and our reliance in this life is solely on Christ.

Part 7

According to the apostle Paul in Philippians 1, you cannot grow as a Christian without growing in your knowledge of the truth of God’s Word. At the same time, growing in knowledge is not the same thing as spiritual growth; knowledge does not equal spiritual maturity.

“For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord…”

–2 Corinthians 4:5

What Pastors are Saying about Tom’s Books 

“Tom Pennington puts his finger on a crucial question every preacher must ask himself: ‘Am I preaching my wisdom in an attempt to move people by my power for my success and honor, or am I preaching Christ from the Holy Scriptures while relying on the power of the Spirit to glorify God?’ We as preachers ought to read this book, examine ourselves openly before God, and seek much of the Spirit’s grace to live for the Triune God’s glory, for the maturation of the saints, and for the salvation of the lost.”

–Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Gresham Machen once said that the two great presuppositions of the gospel are the doctrine of God and the doctrine of man. In this short but helpful book, Tom Pennington presents us with that first presupposition—the doctrine of God.Skillfully and winsomely, Pennington unpacks the God who has revealed himself in history and his word. He is holy, but he is also good—which is great good news for sinners like ourselves. This sermon on God’s name will help you hear the gospel better.”

Jonny Gibson, Associate Professor, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

In this wonderful book, Tom Pennington lifts our eyes to the Lord, to his great and glorious name, to his great and glorious character. Read, meditate, worship, and rejoice!

The Biblical View of Abortion

God’s Heart for Life in the Womb

Book Description

By deciding to make man in His own image, God Himself established the value of human life (Gen. 1:27). That sovereign, immutable decision makes abortion one of the greatest moral and ethical issues of our time. For the Christian, the only question about abortion that matters is: “What does the Bible say?”

Tom Pennington has written The Biblical View of Abortion to expose the corrupt spiritual and cultural foundations of abortion and to build a compelling biblical case against abortion by discovering, explaining, and defending the primary biblical arguments. If you already have a biblical understanding of abortion, Tom’s writing will help further strengthen, encourage, and equip you from the Scripture. But if you don’t yet know or embrace the Bible’s teaching on abortion, may the Holy Spirit use these pages to instruct you from His Word so that God’s view of abortion will become yours.
