  • Letters For The Church

    $30.00

    The Catholic Epistles often get short shrift. Tucked into a few pages near the back of our Bibles, these books are sometimes referred to as the non-Pauline epistles or concluding letters, maybe getting lumped together with Hebrews and Revelation. Yet these letters, Darian Lockett argues, are treasures hidden in plain sight, and it’s time to give them the attention they deserve. In Letters for the Church, Lockett reveals how the Catholic Epistles provide a unique window into early Christian theology and practice. Based on evidence from the early church, he contends that the seven letters of James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude were accepted into the canon as a collection and should be read together. Here Lockett introduces the context and content of the Catholic Epistles while emphasizing how all seven letters are connected. Each chapter outlines the author, audience, and genre of one of the epistles, traces its flow of thought, and explores shared themes with the other Catholic Epistles. The early church valued the Catholic Epistles for multiple reasons: they defend orthodox faith and morals against the challenges of heretics, make clear that Christianity combines belief with action, and round out the New Testament witness to Christian faith and life. By introducing the coherent vision of these seven epistles, Letters for the Church helps us rediscover these riches. Continue Reading Letters For The Church

  • Parables : Jesus’s Friendly Subversive Speech

    $22.99

    A comprehensive study of Jesus’ parables that emphasizes personal reflection and application

    Jesus’ parables used familiar situations to convey deep spiritual truths in ways that are provocative and subversive of the status quo. Prayerfulness was pictured by a persistent widow. The joy of salvation in the homecoming of a lost son. Love of neighbor by a marginalized Samaritan. If we’re not careful, we can easily miss details in the parables that reveal their subtle meanings as well as their contemporary relevance.

    Drawing on scholarship on the parables as well as theological, pastoral, and practical insights, Douglas Webster guides the reader through each of Jesus’ parables, pointing out the important nuances that allow us to understand them and be transformed by them. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter can be used for personal or group study, and an appendix for pastors provides guidance for preaching the parables. Pastors, Bible teachers, and serious students of Scripture will find this tour through Jesus’ parabolic teaching to be a feast for both the mind and the soul.

  • Mysteries Of The Messiah

    $24.99

    Highlighting connections that have been hidden from non-Jewish eyes, Rabbi Jason Sobel pulls back the curtain to shed God’s light on the holy scriptures.

    Most people do not understand how the Bible fits together–even people of faith. Too many Christians accept half an inheritance in that they are content to embrace merely the New Testament. On the flip side, Jews often experience this by embracing only the Old Testament. But God has an intricate plan and purpose for both.

    In Mysteries of the Messiah, Rabbi Jason Sobel, raised in a Jewish home in New Jersey but now a follower of Yeshua, pulls back the curtain to show the many connections in Scripture hidden in plain sight. Known for his emphatic declaration but there’s more! he guides readers from the story of creation through Revelation to see the passion and purpose of the Messiah, the Torah, and several of the patriarchs and prophets.

    God’s Word, written by many people over thousands of years, is not a random selection of people and stories, but they have intricate connections. Rabbi Jason connects the dots for readers, helping them see with clarity what God intended. Continue Reading Mysteries Of The Messiah

  • Philippians A Biblical Study

    $20.00

    Internationally renowned author and Bible teacher Joyce Meyer provides a close study on Philippians, emphasizing the true joy that comes from serving others through Christ.

    Paul’s letter to the people at Philippi serves as a reminder that if we search for joy in possessions, places, or people, we will always come up short. True, lasting joy comes only through faith in Jesus Christ, living in harmony with His followers, and serving others in the name of Christ. The life lived by the Philippians is still attainable today. In her comprehensive approach, Joyce Meyer takes a deep dive into well-known and beloved verses, identifying key truths and incorporating room for personal reflection.

  • Galatians A Biblical Study

    $15.99

    Walk the path of holiness, stir your faith in God, and break free from the bonds of a sinful nature with Joyce Meyer’s Galatians commentary, featuring inspiring questions and space for your reflections.

    Paul’s letter to the church at Galatia speaks largely to how important it was to Paul that the people embrace unity in Christ, no matter their differences. Galatians teaches that we’re only justified by faith in Christ only and encourages us to pursue a life of holiness, not in our own strength, but in the knowledge of God’s empowering grace in our lives.

    In this comprehensive study tool, Joyce Meyer offers an in-depth look at Galatians and emphasizes that we are not only saved by faith, we must learn to live by faith as well. Continue Reading Galatians A Biblical Study

  • Marys Voice In The Gospel Of John

    $28.99

    John’s gospel has always been recognized as different from the other three. What makes it different? According to tradition, Jesus on the cross entrusted his mother, Mary, to John. She was taken into his household, and they lived together for about thirty years, eventually moving to Ephesus together. During that time, John was preaching and finding ways to represent the life of Jesus to others. Would his conversations with Mary about Jesus have had any influence on him?

    In this book, Michael Pakaluk, a philosopher and classical scholar at The Catholic University of America, explores the fresh and startling thesis that Mary’s ‘voice’ can be heard throughout John’s gospel, in the incidents that were chosen, in the way they were presented, and in the themes that become prominent. Drawing on the Christian feminism of Edith Stein, among others, he discerns in the gospel of John a presentation of the life of Christ richly shaped by Mary’s point of view as virgin, mother, daughter of God, and spouse.

    Pakaluk develops his argument through interpretive essays and notes, keyed to a beautiful and fresh translation, which will be appreciated and lauded as much as his translation of Mark’s gospel in The Memoirs of St Peter. Continue Reading Marys Voice In The Gospel Of John

  • Telling Gods Story

    $39.99

    How well do you know His story?

    By the time a Christian reaches young adulthood, he is likely to be quite familiar with every major story in the Bible, but not from having studied them in any particular order.

    Ask an average Bible student to arrange certain characters and events chronologically, and the results are telling.

    Telling God’s Story looks closely at the Bible from its beginning in Genesis to its conclusion in Revelation. By approaching Scripture as one purposefully flowing narrative, emphasizing the inter-connectedness of the text, veteran college professors Preben Vang and Terry G. Carter reinforce the Bible’s greatest teachings and help readers in their own ability to share God’s story effectively with others.

    Updated to include notes on biblical theology and a new section on the intertestamental period, this third edition of Telling God’s Story is ideal for Christians seeking to grow in their understanding of God’s word! Continue Reading Telling Gods Story

  • Conspicuous In His Absence

    $34.00

    In the biblical canon, two books lack any explicit reference to the name of God: Song of Songs and Esther. What is the nature of God as revealed in texts that don’t use his name? Exploring the often overlooked theological connections between these two Old Testament books, Chloe T. Sun takes on the challenges of God’s absence and explores how we think of God when he is perceived to be silent.

    In the biblical canon, two books lack any explicit reference to the name of God: Song of Songs and Esther. God’s peculiar absence in these texts is unsettling, both for theological discourse and for believers considering implications for their own lived experience. Chloe T. Sun takes on the challenges of God’s absence by exploring the often overlooked theological connections between these two Old Testament books. In Conspicuous in His Absence, Sun examines and reflects on the Song of Songs and Esther using theological interpretation. She addresses three main questions: What is the nature of God as revealed in texts that don’t use his name? How do we think of God when he is perceived to be absent? What should we do when God is silent or hidden? The experience of God’s absence or silence is an important part of the human condition. By exploring the distinct themes and perspectives of Song of Songs and Esther, as well as how they’ve been received in Jewish and Christian history, Sun demonstrates how both books serve as counter texts to the depiction of God and his work in the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures. Thus both contribute to a fuller picture of who God is and what it means to know him. Continue Reading Conspicuous In His Absence

  • Ministry Of Women In The New Testament

    $24.99

    Respected scholar Dorothy Lee considers evidence from the New Testament and early church to show that women’s ministry is confirmed by the biblical witness. Her comprehensive examination explores the roles women played in the Gospels and the Pauline corpus, with a particular focus on passages that have been used in the past to limit women’s ministry. She argues that women in the New Testament were not only valued as disciples but also given leadership roles, which has implications for the contemporary church.

  • Servant Of The Lord And His Servant People

    $27.00

    It is often recognized that the title servant is applied to key figures throughout the Bible, culminating in Jesus Christ.

    In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume Matthew Harmon carefully traces this theme from Genesis to Revelation with the intention of seeing how earlier servants point forward to the ultimate Servant. While this servant theme certainly is significant in its own right throughout redemptive history, it also plays a supporting role, enhancing and enriching other themes such as son, prophet, and king. Harmon shows how the title servant not only gives us a clearer understanding of Jesus Christ but also has profound implications for our lives as Christians. When we grasp what it means to be servants of Christ, our love for him and our obedience to him deepen. Understanding that the ultimate Servant Jesus Christ indwells his people to empower them to serve others in love has the potential to transform how we interact with fellow believers and the world around us. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • Enjoying The Bible

Each chapter includes exercises and questions designed to help readers put the book’s principles and practices into action. Continue Reading Enjoying The Bible

  • Theology Of Jeremiah

    $22.00

    How do we think about the theology of the book of Jeremiah? John Goldingay considers the prophet Jeremiah himself, his individual circumstances and those of Judah, and his message. As we view the book of Jeremiah in its entirety, we learn about God, Israel as the people of God, the nature of wrongdoing and prophecy, and what we know about the future.

    How do we think about the theology of the book of Jeremiah? Do we consider themes section by section, or do we step back and look at the whole? John Goldingay says both. In The Theology of Jeremiah, Goldingay considers the prophet Jeremiah himself, his individual circumstances and those of Judah, and his message. Though Jeremiah’s message varies throughout the book, we gain insights into Jeremiah’s theology by viewing the book in its entirety. In doing so, we learn about God, Israel as the people of God, the nature of wrongdoing and prophecy, and what we know about the future. Continue Reading Theology Of Jeremiah

  • Problem Of The Old Testament

    $40.00

    Christians throughout church history have struggled with the Old Testament-defining it, interpreting it, and reconciling it with the New Testament. In this thorough, accessible work, Duane A. Garrett surveys three primary methods Christians have used to handle the Old Testament, offering a way forward that is faithful to the text and to the Christian faith.

    For Christians, the Old Testament often presents a conundrum. We revere it as God’s Word, but we don’t always comprehend it. It has great truths beautifully expressed, but it also has lengthy lists of names that we cannot pronounce, detailed rules for religious rites that we never observe, and grim stories that we never tell our children. Theologians and laypeople throughout church history have struggled to define it, interpret it, and reconcile it with the New Testament. In The Problem of the Old Testament, Duane A. Garrett takes on this conundrum and lays a foundation for constructive study of the Old Testament. He surveys three primary methods Christians have used to handle the Old Testament, from the church fathers to today: hermeneutical, schematic, and conceptual. Garrett also explores major interpretive topics such as the nature of the law, the function of election and covenants, and how prophecy works, boldly offering a way forward that is faithful to the text and to the Christian faith. I argue, Garrett writes, that the Old Testament is fulfilled in Jesus Christ and that it is authoritative and edifying for Christians. This thorough, accessible work is essential reading for all students of Scripture seeking to discover the Old Testament’s riches beyond the challenges. Continue Reading Problem Of The Old Testament

  • Understanding Old Testament Theology

    $19.99

    Over the past century the field of Old Testament studies has seen an explosion of theologies of the Old Testament, a trend that has only intensified in the past ten or twenty years. Experts in Old Testament theology might have the book budget and time to read through many of these theologies, but students, pastors, and even Old Testament professors specializing in other areas are not able to keep up with it.

    In Understanding Old Testament Theology, professors and authors Brittany Kim and Charlie Trimm organize and explain, in a clear and easy-to-follow manner, the various current approaches to Old Testament theology.

    The book’s introduction presents a brief history of the disciple and highlights the key questions it tackles. Chapters then explore approaches that seek to unify Old Testament theology and approaches that emphasize the diversity of its books and authors. Each main chapter includes common features of the approach, points of tension, and a test case illuminating how the approach interprets Exodus.

    Accessible and unique, Understanding Old Testament Theology provides the only summary introduction of its kind to the field of Old Testament biblical theology. Continue Reading Understanding Old Testament Theology

  • Your Glory : A Biblical Study

    $21.99

    Like the blind men who touched different parts of the elephant and thought they knew the whole, we touch just a piece of God’s glory and think we know what it is. But we can’t agree with each other, so we must not know. Or we try to wrap it up in one big idea: God is great, full of splendour! But does that help?

    Moses asked God, Show me your glory! And God shouts to be known. Yet, just like the boy in The Emperor’s New Clothes, a voice inside me cries out, I don’t see it! There must be more! Do you see and understand God’s glory? If we did, we would be terrified, undone, never the same. And I long for you to know it that way, too.

    This study examines every use of the key words used for glory in the Old Testament and the New. We will see the lie about glory that changed everything. Yet the truth about glory is both dangerous and good. It binds us to God in an indivisible eternal bond. It is our identity and purpose for being. It gives to us a magnificent burden that is just the beginning of seeing and knowing glory. Continue Reading Your Glory : A Biblical Study

    In the Odyssey of Grace series, Cy Mersereau invites you to join him as he travels through the twenty-seven books of the New Testament. In this series, each book of the New Testament is summarized, with special consideration given to topics of common, and sometimes controversial, interest.

    The journey begins with the coming of Christ in the four Gospels, then threads its way through the epistles and ends with Revelation, where time dissolves into the eternal state. Along the way, the reader will encounter adventure, history, theology, advice for practical Christian living, and become acquainted with some of the more fascinating personalities of the early church.

    The author of each book has his own style, his own emphasis, and his own story that is part of the larger story of Jesus Christ and the redemption he purchased for us on Calvary two thousand years ago.

    *Prophetical insights from believers of various backgrounds on the book of Revelation.
    *The hotly contested miracle of Jesus turning water into wine.
    *Judas, his betrayal of Christ, and how and when he died
    *A discussion of the book of Philemon to address the question of whether the Bible promotes slavery
    *A comprehensive look into why the Gospel of Mark has so many endings and which is the right one.

  • Paul And The Hope Of Glory

    $34.99

    A Unique Study of Pauline Eschatology that Is Both Exegetical and Theological

    One of the trajectories coming out of Constantine Campbell’s award-winning book Paul and Union with Christ is the significance of eschatology for the apostle. Along with union with Christ, eschatology is a feature of Paul’s thinking that affects virtually everything else.

    While union with Christ is the webbing that joins Paul’s thought together, eschatology provides the shape of his thought, and thus gives shape to his teaching about justification, resurrection, the cross, ethics, and so forth. There is considerable debate, however, about Paul’s eschatology, asking whether he is a covenant or an apocalyptic theologian.

    In Paul and the Hope of Glory Campbell conducts a thorough exegetical study of the relevant elements of Paul’s eschatological language, metaphors, and images including parousia, the last day, inheritance, hope, and others. He examines each passage in context, aiming to build inductively an overall sense of Paul’s thinking. The results of this exegetical study then feed into a theological study that demonstrates the integration of Paul’s eschatological thought into his overall theological framework.

  • Rebels And Exiles

    $22.00

    Deep within the human psyche lies a sense that we were made for something more than this broken world. We all share an experience of exile-of longing for our true home. In this ESBT volume, Matthew S. Harmon explores how the theme of sin and exile is developed throughout Scripture. He traces a common pattern of human rebellion, God’s judgment, and the hope of restored relationship, beginning with the first humans and concluding with the end of exile in a new creation. In this story we encounter the remarkable grace of a God who wants to dwell with his people, and we learn how to live well as exiles in a fallen world. Rebels and Exiles makes clear how the paradigm of sin leading to exile is foundational for understanding both the biblical storyline and human existence. Essential Studies in Biblical Theology (ESBT), edited by Benjamin L. Gladd, explore the central or essential themes of the Bible’s grand storyline. Taking cues from Genesis 1-3, authors explore the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemption history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT offers an introduction to biblical theology. Continue Reading Rebels And Exiles

  • Pauls Works Of The Law In The Perspective Of Second Century Reception

    $36.00

    When Paul wrote that we are justified by faith apart from works of the law what did he mean? Matthew J. Thomas examines how Paul’s second-century readers understood the conflicting interpretations, how their readings relate to old and new perspectives, and what their collective witness suggests about the apostle’s own meaning.

    What did Paul mean by works of the law? Paul writes that we are justified by faith apart from works of the law, a disputed term that represents a fault line between old and new perspectives on Paul. Was the apostle reacting against the Jews’ good works done to earn salvation, or the Mosaic law’s practices that identified the Jewish people? Matthew J. Thomas examines how Paul’s second-century readers understood these points in conflict, how their readings relate to old and new perspectives, and what their collective witness suggests about the apostle’s own meaning. Surprisingly, these early witnesses align closely with the new perspective, though their reasoning often differs from both modern viewpoints. They suggest that Paul opposes these works neither due to moralism, nor primarily for experiential or social reasons, but because the promised new law and covenant, which are transformative and universal in scope, have come in Christ.

  • Go Now To Shiloh

    $29.99

    In the Old Testament, God reveals himself to people in particular places so that they may communicate with and worship him. There are three broad categories for these places: temporary, movable, and permanent. Unlike the pagan deities, who were connected to the created world, God’s worshipers had to rely on him to reveal himself. Communication was often difficult, but God made it possible through places such as Bethel, Shiloh, and the Tabernacle. In the New Testament, Jesus takes these categories and applies them to himself, showing that he is the primary access to God. Subsequently, the Holy Spirit comes and gives believers unprecedented access to God, making them connecting points between God and the world. Go Now to Shiloh explores the challenges believers have faced when communicating with God over the centuries, and shows what an immense gift we have as New Testament believers.

  • Unconventional God : The Spirit According To Jesus

    Popular author Jack Levison offers a fresh take on the Holy Spirit through a careful reading of every reference to the Spirit in the Gospels. Viewed through the lens of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection, the Spirit shows up at odd times and in odd teachings–in desert sojourns, a strange saying about scorpions and snakes, and puzzling sayings about birth from above and springs from below. Grounded in scholarship yet accessible and inviting, this companion volume to Levison’s A Boundless God analyzes key aspects of Jesus’s experience of the Holy Spirit, offering nuggets of insight on every page.

  • Reading Scriputre As The Church

    $40.00

    The Bible is meant to be read in the church, by the church, as the church. Although the practice of reading Scripture has often become separated from its ecclesial context, theologian Derek Taylor argues that it rightly belongs to the disciplines of the community of faith. He finds a leading example of this approach in the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who regarded the reading of Scripture as an inherently communal exercise of discipleship. In conversation with other theologians, including John Webster, Robert Jenson, and Stanley Hauerwas, Taylor contends that Bonhoeffer’s approach to Scripture can engender the practices and habits of a faithful hermeneutical community. Today, as in Bonhoeffer’s time, the church is called to take up and read. Continue Reading Reading Scriputre As The Church

  • Salvation To The Ends Of The Earth

    $35.00

    The saving mission of Jesus constitutes the foundation for Christian mission, and the Christian gospel is its message. This second edition of a classic NSBT volume emphasizes how the Bible presents a continuing narrative of God’s mission, providing a robust historical and chronological backbone to the unfolding of the early Christian mission.

    Few biblical topics are as important as mission. Mission is linked inextricably to humanity’s sinfulness and need for redemption and to God’s provision of salvation in the person and work of Jesus Christ. This good news of salvation must be made known. The saving mission of Jesus constitutes the foundation for Christian mission, and the Christian gospel is its message. This second edition of New Studies in Biblical Theology volume Salvation to the Ends of the Earth emphasizes the way in which the Bible presents a continuing narrative of God’s mission-ranging from the story of Israel to the story of Jesus and that of the early Christians. At the same time, it provides a robust historical and chronological backbone to the unfolding of the early Christian mission. The apostle Paul’s writings and the General Epistles are incorporated with the Gospel with which they have the closest and most natural canonical and historical affinity. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • 40 Questions About Typology And Allegory

    $23.99

    A survey of two literary devices that are indispensable for understanding salvation historyA biblical type is a person, place, or thing in salvation history that corresponds to a later person, place, or thing in the scriptural text. An allegory is a passage that says one thing in order to say something else. Both are common literary devices in the Bible that are vital for understanding truths about Jesus Christ found nowhere else.

    In 40 Questions About Typology and Allegory, Mitchell Chase provides a thorough introduction to both devices, showing where they appear throughout Scripture and the historical roles they have played in biblical interpretation. In a convenient question-and-answer format, Chase answers key questions such as:

    * Why should interpreters care about typology and allegory?
    * How do we identify types?
    * What are the theological assumptions of typology?
    * Do all types lead to Christ?
    * What is allegorical interpretation?
    * How was allegory practiced in the early church?
    * How should we practice allegorical interpretation?

    Situating typology and allegory within salvation history, Chase shows how these devices reveal the interconnectedness of Scripture and commonly overlooked aspects of Christ’s person and work. Scholars, Bible teachers, and preachers will find this an essential resource for interpreting Scripture more comprehensively. Continue Reading 40 Questions About Typology And Allegory

  • Fascinating Bible Studies On Every Parable

  • Here Are Your Gods

    $18.00

    When the Israelites exclaimed, Here are your gods! at the sight of the golden calf, they were attempting to hold on to the God of their history while fashioning idols for their own purposes. In today’s Western world, plenty of shiny false gods still hold power-idols of prosperity, nationalism, and self-interest. Christians desperately need to name and expose these idols. We must retrieve the biblical emphasis on idolatry and apply it anew in our journey of following Jesus. In Here Are Your Gods, Old Testament scholar Christopher J. H. Wright combines a biblical study of idolatry with practical discipleship. He calls readers to consider connections between Old Testament patterns and today’s culture, especially recurring temptations to trust in political power. Now as much as ever, we need a biblically informed understanding of the many ways humans make gods for themselves, the danger of idols, and how God calls us to join him in the battle against idolatry as part of his ongoing mission to be known and worshiped by all peoples.

  • Last Great Outpouring

    $16.99

    After four hundred years of prophetic silence, God sent John the Baptist to announce the coming of the Messiah, the baptism He would bring, and the in-breaking of the kingdom of God on earth. In response, people streamed to the Jordan River to hear John’s words and be baptized by him in the Jewish ritual mikveh bath for cleansing from sin and defilement. John’s calling was to prepare the people for the coming glory.

    Our God is nothing if not consistent-the same yesterday, today and forever. As in the days leading to the return of Jesus, He therefore continues to send messengers in advance to announce coming moves of the Spirit in order to prepare His people to receive. Author R. Loren Sandford believes God is about to do something huge, wonderful, and even unprecedented in scope and impact, and he is urging Christians everywhere to prepare for it.

    Beginning with the prophet Haggai and moving through the Bible, Loren lays a foundation for his belief that the time of the last great outpouring and the Lord’s return is now.

    He writes, The church in our day has been ravaged and diminished in influence under pressure from the idolatrous culture that surrounds us and that, figuratively speaking, a remnant is even now returning from exile. It’s time to rebuild on a biblical foundation and construct a temple adequate to contain the outpouring God is about to send.

    Loren says we must reject our present culture, which is steeped in consumerism and a focus on self, and return to a culture of covenant. The former has weakened and destroyed us, while the latter will edify and strengthen us.

    As John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah to prepare the way, prophetic voices are now rising to proclaim that the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit in history is coming. The great last days’ move of God approaches and the call for preparation now is the same as John preached so long ago. Through reliable prophetic voices, God now cries for holiness and cleansing to uproot everything in ourselves and in our churches not solidly rooted in the nature of Jesus and the Father.

  • Greek Word Study

    $24.99

    Flour. Sheep. Coins. Wheat. Jesus never abandoned the familiarity of His time because what He had to say was so celestial or deep. Instead, He took advantage of what people already understood. In doing so, He didn’t just leave a way of salvation for us, but also a pattern of teaching to follow. This alone was my inspiration for how I chose to write Greek Word Study.–author Chris Palmer

    In a follow-up to his highly acclaimed book Letters from Jesus: Studies from the Seven Churches of Revelation, the Rev. Chris Palmer has written Greek Word Study: 90 Ancient Words That Unlock Scripture. With wit, humor, grace, and scholarship, Chris offers biblical insights while teaching Koine Greek words and phrases one delightful bite at a time. Unlike other books that overwhelm readers with Greek grammar, word formation, tenses, and the like, Chris makes the language accessible to anyone, using modern stories and analogies that engage readers and draw them into the Scriptures. Learning some Greek words and phrases helps you read the Bible in high definition!

    You don’t need to be scholar to read this book and you don’t need to know an ounce of Greek either. In fact, you don’t even have to really know much about the Bible at all, Chris says. All you need to do is just kick back and enjoy. Continue Reading Greek Word Study

  • Who Is God

    $21.99

    Internationally respected scholar Richard Bauckham offers a brief, engaging study of divine revelation in Scripture. He probes the deep meaning of well-known moments in the biblical story in order to address the key question the Bible is designed to answer: Who is God?

    Accessible for laypeople and important to scholars, this volume begins by exploring three key events in the Bible in which God is revealed: Jacob’s dream at Bethel (the revelation of the divine presence), Moses at the burning bush (the revelation of the divine Name), and Moses on Mount Sinai (the revelation of the divine character). From there, Bauckham shows how the New Testament builds on these Old Testament passages by exploring three revelatory events in Mark’s Gospel, events that reveal the Trinity: Jesus’s baptism, transfiguration, and crucifixion.

    This book is based on the Frumentius Lectures for 2015 at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology in Addis Ababa and on the Haywood Lectures for 2018 at Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia. Continue Reading Who Is God

  • Biblical Theology According To The Apostles

    $27.00

    How did the apostles understand the Old Testament?

    Although relatively few in number, the New Testament’s explicit summaries of the Old Testament story of Israel give readers direct access into the way the earliest Christians told this story-that is to say, into the way they did biblical theology.

    This stimulating New Studies in Biblical Theology volume examines the passages in the Synoptic Gospels, Acts, Paul’s letters, and Hebrews which recount the characters, events, and institutions of Israel’s story in chronological order and at substantial length. The authors demonstrate just how valuable a lens these summaries provide for a clearer vision of the earliest Christians’ practice of biblical theology. In doing so, they also show how contemporary readers can and should follow the apostles’ example.

    Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • Decoding The Prophet Jeremiah

    $17.99

    Could an ancient prophet hold a present key that will reveal the future?

    Jeremiah was an Old Testament voice, but he still speaks to our day. Alone and living in a time of chaos, he was a prophet and Levitical priest whose fellow priests and prophets wanted him dead. In fact, everyone wanted him dead–the political leaders, his neighbors, and even his family.

    At twenty-three years old Jeremiah was told to speak truth to power and not to worry what the consequences may be. God told him that people love to praise the Lord but refuse to do what He says. In spite of the judgments cascading upon the heads of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Lord promised a new covenant with Israel and Judah that would revolutionize their walk with Him. In Decoding the Prophet Jeremiah you will discover the following:
    *The warnings from God in Jeremiah’s day are for our generation as well.
    *Even when you feel betrayed by everyone, there is still hope.
    *God keeps His covenant and will never leave you or forsake you.

    This book is a clarion call to all believers. We need to see the bigger picture: it is not about us but about God’s heart and God’s kingdom. God is looking for warriors who are about advancing His kingdom by storming the gates of hell and setting His sons and daughters free from the clutches of the greatest narcissist of all time.

    Mark Biltz unpacks two books of the Bible written by the prophet Jeremiah: the Book of Lamentations and the Book of Jeremiah. Biltz has uncovered fascinating Hebraic codes within Lamentations, making this a truly unique message for readers.

    This book will encourage you to persevere in your faith despite cultural shifts and pressures, much like what the prophet Jeremiah did. Continue Reading Decoding The Prophet Jeremiah

    The journey begins with the coming of Christ in the four Gospels, then threads its way through the epistles and ends with Revelation, where time dissolves into the eternal state. Along the way, the reader will encounter adventure, history, theology, advice for practical Christian living, and become acquainted with some of the more fascinating personalities of the early church.

    The author of each book has his own style, his own emphasis, and his own story that is part of the larger story of Jesus Christ and the redemption he purchased for us on Calvary two thousand years ago.

    Some of the topics covered here include:
    *Prophetical insights from believers of various backgrounds on the book of Revelation.
    *The hotly contested miracle of Jesus turning water into wine.
    *Judas, his betrayal of Christ, and how and when he died.
    *A discussion of the book of Philemon to address the question of whether the Bible promotes slavery.

  • How To Read Daniel

    $20.00

    Beyond the familiar lions’ den and fiery furnace, much of the book of Daniel seems baffling to modern readers.

    The first half recounts stories full of ancient Near Eastern protocol and imperial court drama; the second half features apocalyptic visions of monstrous beasts and cosmic conflict. Many Christians misunderstand or simply avoid the book. But failing to read Daniel well means missing a critical part of God’s message to us. According to Tremper Longman III, when we read Daniel on its own terms and in its original context, we’ll discover that all of the book is easier to understand than we might think. In this volume of the popular How to Read Series, Longman brings his expertise as an Old Testament scholar and teacher to orient readers to a proper engagement with Daniel. He examines the book’s genre, structure, historical background, and major theological message before diving deeper into each of the stories and visions. As we learn how to enter the world of Daniel, we find a message not only for his generation but also for ours: even in hostile circumstances, God is in control, and he will have the final victory. Longman draws out this theme of Daniel for the twenty-first century, finding help for faithful living in a toxic culture and hope in a troubled world. How to Read Daniel is the perfect starting point for anyone studying, teaching, or seeking a reliable guide to this ancient book. Continue Reading How To Read Daniel

Highly respected senior New Testament scholar James Thompson offers a unique approach to Pauline theology, focusing on Paul’s attempts to persuade his audience toward moral formation. Thompson recognizes Paul as a pastor who brought together theology and rhetoric to encourage spiritual formation in his communities. Attempts to find total consistency in Paul’s writings fail, says Thompson, because Paul’s persuasive tactics changed depending on the situation he was addressing.

  • Studying The New Testament Through Inscriptions

    Studying the New Testament through Inscriptions is an intuitive introduction to inscriptions from the Greco-Roman world. Inscriptions can help contextualize certain events associated with the New Testament in a way that many widely circulated literary texts do not. This book both introduces inscriptions and demonstrates sound methodological use of them in the study of the New Testament. Through five case studies, it highlights the largely unrecognized ability of inscriptions to shed light on early Christian history, practice, and the leadership structure of early Christian churches, as well as to solve certain New Testament exegetical impasses.

  • Fuentes Que Dieron Origen Al N

    $18.99

    El objeto de estudio de este trabajo de investigacion, sobre Las fuentes que dieron origen al Nuevo Testamento, es el estudio de las fuentes literarias que sirvieron, primero para construir el pensamiento teologico que se encuentra plasmado a lo largo de todo el NT como el concepto Mesias, juicio, infierno inter alia; y segundo, para redactar los libros del canon del NT. Las fuentes literarias a las que nos referimos es la abundante literatura que surgio en el PI, como por ejemplo la literatura de genero apocaliptico, que sienta las bases de gran parte de la teologia cristiana. La literatura deuterocanonica o llamada apocrifa por la iglesia protestante, que fue una fuente muy importante de los redactores del NT, la literatura esenia, que es la literatura producida por la secta de los esenios que habitaba en las cuevas de Qumran y que fue forma parte del hallazgo de los Rollos del Mar Muerto. A esto hay que agregar la tradicion oral de los judios que posteriormente fue escrita en el talmud. Continue Reading Fuentes Que Dieron Origen Al N

  • Demons : What The Bible Really Says About The Powers Of Darkness

    $19.99

    The truth about demons is far stranger–and even more fascinating–than what’s commonly believed.

    Are demons real? Are they red creatures with goatees holding pitchforks and sitting on people’s shoulders while whispering bad things? Did a third of the angels really rebel with Satan? Are demons and principalities and powers just terms for the same entities, or are they different members of the kingdom of darkness? Is the world a chaotic mess because of what happened in Eden, or is there more to the story of evil?

    What people believed about evil spiritual forces in ancient biblical times is often very different than what people have been led to believe about them today. And this ancient worldview is missing from most attempts to treat the topic.

    In Demons, Michael Heiser debunks popular presuppositions about the very real powers of darkness. Rather than traditions, stories, speculations, or myths, Demons is grounded in what ancient people of both the Old and New Testament eras believed about evil spiritual forces and in what the Bible actually says. You’ll come away with a sound, biblical understanding of demons, supernatural rebellion, evil spirits, and spiritual warfare.

  • Judgment On The House Of God

    $14.99

    Are we prepared for the glory and the cleansing to come?

    The Bible promises that judgment begins in the house of God. Many people avoid this intense passage in fear of the word judgment. As New Covenant believers, we can take comfort that this judgment brings life through a healthy fear of the Lord. Instead of warnings of hellfire and condemnation, this judgment brings a cleansing that will set the stage for the greatest outpouring of glory, prophetic thunder, and supernatural power the world has ever seen.

    God is simply looking for a people made ready–a house that is compatible with the glory He wants to fill it with!

    Jeremiah Johnson is a church planter, pioneer of Maranatha Ministry School, bestselling author and globally recognized prophet. In Judgment on the House of God, Jeremiah presents an impassioned prophetic word that challenges Christians to live without impurity and compromise, not through the bondage of legalism, but through ignited, burning hearts of passion towards the Lord.

  • Do Miracles Happen Today

    $7.99

    Lots of extraordinary stuff happens in the Bible. People walk on water. People touch handkerchiefs and are healed. People disappear into the sky. Did these really happen? What was their purpose?

    And do miracles happen today? How do we respond if someone says they’ve seen a miracle happen? Should we hold healing services? What can I say to a child about praying for healing? How should we react when prayers for healing aren’t answered?

    In this warm and accessible book, Tim Chester looks at the Bible’s view of the existence and purpose of miracles and gives a careful and balanced view on whether healings and other miraculous things happen today.

    It will help Christians to explore these questions and others regarding miracles, signs and wonders, and know how to pray.

    Includes additional questions on:
    – Why did Jesus tell people not to tell others about his miracles?
    – How should I respond when I hear a claim that a miracle has happened?

  • Iglesia

    $12.99

    Los cristianos tienen muchas preguntas practicas cuando se trata de la vida en la iglesia local: Como se muestra el evangelio en nuestras vidas? Que se supone que debemos hacer y creer? Diferentes seguidores responden de manera diferente, !incluso cuando predican el mismo evangelio! Que debemos pensar de tales diferencias? La vida de una iglesia, la doctrina, el culto e incluso su forma de manejarse son cuestiones importantes. Sin embargo, rara vez se abordan. La Iglesia es el manual de Mark Dever sobre la iglesia para todos los que ven las Escrituras como la unica autoridad suficiente para la doctrina y la vida de la iglesia local. Dever explica al lector lo que dice la Biblia sobre la naturaleza y el proposito de la iglesia: que es, para que sirve, que es lo que hace. De hecho, las Escrituras nos ensean sobre toda la vida y la doctrina de la iglesia, incluso como debemos reunirnos para la adoracion corporativa y como debemos organizar nuestra vida corporativa en conjunto. Dios se ha revelado a si mismo a traves de su Palabra. El nos habla, nos prepara para representarlo hoy y para verlo maana. Una congregacion de miembros regenerados, que cumplen con las responsabilidades que Cristo mismo nos confirio en su Palabra, reuniendose regularmente, liderada por un cuerpo de ancianos guiados por Dios, es la imagen que El nos ha dado de su iglesia en su Palabra.

    Christians have lots of practical questions when it comes to life in the local church: How is the gospel displayed in our lives together? What are we supposed to do and believe? Different followers answer differently–even as they preach the same gospel! What should we think about such differences? A church’s life, doctrine, worship, and even polity are important issues. Yet they are so rarely addressed. The Church is Mark Dever’s primer on the church for all who see Scripture alone as a sufficient authority for the doctrine and life of the local church. He explains to the reader what the Bible says about the nature and purpose of the church– what it is, what it’s for, what it does. Indeed, Scripture teaches us about all of the life and doctrine of the church, including how we should assemble for corporate worship and how we’re to organize our corporate life together. God has revealed himself through his Word. He is speaking to us, preparing us to represent Him today, and to see Him tomorrow!

  • Canon Covenant And Christology

    $34.00

    All Scripture is breathed out by God (2 Timothy 3:16). From Paul’s epistles the divine inspiration of Scripture may be confidently affirmed. However, on turning to Jesus and the Gospels, it is difficult to find such an explicit approach. In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Matthew Barrett argues that Jesus and the apostles have just as convictional a doctrine of Scripture as Paul or Peter, but it will only be discovered if the Gospels are read within their own canonical horizon and covenantal context. The nature of Scripture presupposed by Jesus and the Gospel writers may not be addressed directly, but it manifests itself powerfully when their words are read within the Old Testament’s promise-fulfilment pattern. Nothing demonstrates Scripture’s divine origin, divine authorial intent and trustworthiness more than the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the advent of the Son of God, the Word has become flesh, announcing to Jew and Gentile alike that the covenant promises Yahweh made through the Law and the Prophets have been fulfilled in the person and work of Christ. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

  • Be Thou My Guide

    $12.99

    Living as a Christian can be hard when we find ourselves in the midst of incredibly difficult circumstances. But Christians today are not the first Christians who have faced incredibly difficult circumstances. Throughout Scripture, God introduces several people of great faith who, despite facing incredibly challenging circumstances, remained steadfast in their faith. And it’s these people of great faith who are great mentors as we, too, pursue a closer relationship with our heavenly Father and a life of Christian diligence.

    Written for Christian women – college age and older – this nine-session Bible study explores the lives of ordinary people in the Bible who had extraordinary faith. In doing so, women today will come to understand how they, too, can stay diligent toward God in attitude, behavior, and prayer regardless of the difficult circumstances in which they find themselves.

    This study features a design that works well for individual study or small- or large-group study. Exercises and self-reflection questions will help women not only apply the material they learn to their lives in practical ways but also grow in their faith to become more confident in their prayer lives.

  • From Judgment To Hope

    $14.00

    While conservative interpreters might believe that prophets were predictors and progressives believe the prophets to be simply social advocates, Walter Brueggemann argues that the prophets were emancipated imaginers of alternative. Emancipated from the dominant thinking of their societies, the prophets imagined an alternative reality and invited listeners to join them in their commitment to that new reality.

    In this collection of studies, popular biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann explores the Major Prophets, the Minor Prophets, and the prophets of the Persian Age. By highlighting the common themes of judgment and hope found in the prophets’ messages, Brueggemann invites readers to consider what those messages mean for us today. Questions for reflection conclude each chapter. From Judgment to Hope is suitable for individual or group study. Continue Reading From Judgment To Hope

    $30.00

    World-renowned scholar Michael Gorman examines the important Pauline theme of participation in Christ and explores its contemporary significance for Christian life and ministry. One of the themes Gorman explores is what he calls resurrectional cruciformity–that participating in Christ is simultaneously dying and rising with him and that cross-shaped living, infused with the life of the resurrected Lord, is life giving. Throughout the book, Gorman demonstrates the centrality of participating in Christ for Paul’s theology and spirituality. Continue Reading Participating In Christ

  • Letters From Jesus

    $19.99

    In Revelation 2:2, Jesus tells the church in Ephesus something intimate-Google Street View intimate. He says, ‘I know your works’ (Oida ta erga sou). Four words don’t seem like much, but in the Greek, it packs a punch…. Jesus chooses the Greek word oida, which expresses total, comprehensive knowledge. It is intimate knowledge that comes from being up close and personal. This knowledge isn’t hazy on the details. It doesn’t struggle to remember. It preserves the particulars. In the mind’s eye, everything is sharp and clear, like a well-taken photograph. -Chris Palmer

    Letters from Jesus: Studies from the Seven Churches of Revelation explores Christ’s warnings to the seven most prominent churches in Asia Minor in the book of Revelation. These letters date back to 95 A.D., but they help us make a fascinating discovery about civilization: life hasn’t changed that much over the last two millennia.

    Author Chris Palmer illustrates the truths contained in the Letters from Jesus using modern, everyday day examples. The host of the popular podcast Greek for the Week, he unpacks Greek words and phrases in these verses from Revelation with humor, joy, and biblical scholarship.

    Why study Greek, even just a little bit? As Chris explains, looking at the New Testament in the original language in which it was written can offer us some beautiful insights into God’s Word. It’s like reading the Bible in high definition, he says. Also, studying God’s Word in the original language forces us to approach it with reverence and awe, humbling ourselves to obey what it says, whether it’s something we want to hear or not.

  • Reading Revelation In Context

    $21.99

    Reading Revelation in Context brings together short, accessible essays that compare and contrast the visions and apocalyptic imagery of the book of Revelation with various texts from Second Temple Jewish literature.

    Going beyond an introduction that merely surveys historical events and theological themes, Reading Revelation in Context examines individual passages in Second Temple Jewish literature in order to illuminate the context of Revelation’s theology and the meaning and potency of John’s visions. Following the narrative progression of Revelation, each chapter (1) pairs a major unit of the Apocalypse with one or more sections of a thematically related Jewish text, (2) introduces and explores the historical and theological nuances of the comparator text, and (3) shows how the ideas in the comparator text illuminate those expressed in Revelation.

    In addition to the focused comparison provided in the essays, the book contains other student-friendly features that will help them engage broader discussions, including an introductory chapter that familiarizes students with the world and texts of Second Temple Judaism, a glossary of important terms, and a brief appendix suggesting what tools students might use to undertake their own comparative studies. At the end of each chapter there a list of other thematically relevant Second Temple Jewish texts recommended for additional study and a focused bibliography pointing students to critical editions and higher-level discussions in scholarly literature.

    Reading Revelation in Context brings together an international team of over 20 New Testament experts including Jamie Davies, David A. deSilva, Michael J. Gorman, Dana M. Harris, Ronald Herms, Edith M. Humphrey, Jonathan A. Moo, Elizabeth E. Shively, Cynthia Long Westfall, Archie T. Wright, and more. Continue Reading Reading Revelation In Context

    This fresh look at the Gospel of Matthew highlights the unique contribution Matthew’s rich and multilayered portrait of Jesus makes to understanding the connection between the Old and New Testaments. Patrick Schreiner argues that Matthew obeyed the Great Commission by acting as scribe to his teacher Jesus in order to share Jesus’s life and work with the world, thereby making disciples of future generations. The First Gospel presents Jesus’s life as the fulfillment of the Old Testament story of Israel and shows how Jesus brings new life in the New Testament. Continue Reading Matthew Disciple And Scribe

  • Promise Law Faith

    $39.95

    In Promise, Law, Faith, T. David Gordon argues that Paul uses promise/?pa??e??a, law/????, and faith/p?st?? in Galatians to denote three covenant-administrations by synecdoche (a figure of speech in which a part is made to represent the whole or vice versa), and that he chose each synecdoche because it characterized the distinctive (but not exclusive) feature of that covenant. For instance, Gordon argues, the Abrahamic covenant was characterized by three remarkable promises made to an aging couple (to have numerous descendants, who would inherit a large, arable land, and the Seed of whom would one day bless all the nations of the world); the Sinai covenant was characterized by the many laws given (both originally at Sinai and later in the remainder of the Mosaic corpus); and the New Covenant is characterized by faith in the dying and rising of Christ.

    As Gordon’s subtitle suggests, he believes that both the dominant Protestant approach to Galatians and the New Perspectives on Paul approach fail to appreciate that Paul’s reasoning in Galatians is covenant-historical (this is what Gordon calls perhaps a Third Perspective on Paul). In Galatians, Paul is not arguing that one covenant is good and the other bad; rather, he is arguing that the Sinai covenant was only a temporary covenant-administration between the promissory Abrahamic covenant and its ultimate fulfilment in the New Covenant in Jesus. For a specific time, the Sinai covenant isolated the Israelites from the nations to preserve the memory of the Abrahamic promises and to preserve the integrity of his seed/Seed, through whom one day the same nations would one day be richly blessed. But once that Seed arrived in Jesus, providing the grace of repentance to the Gentiles, it was no longer necessary or proper to segregate them from the descendants of Abraham. Paul’s argument in Galatians is therefore covenant-historical; he corrects misbehaviors (that is, requiring observance of the Mosaic Law) associated with the New Covenant by describing the relation of that New Covenant to the two covenants instituted before it–the Abrahamic and the Sinaitic– hence the covenants of promise, law, and faith. Effectively, Paul argues that the New Covenant is a covenant in its own right that displaces the temporary, Christ-anticipating, Israel-threatening, and Gentile-excluding Sinai covenant.

  • Rediscovering Scriptures Vision For Women

    $22.00

    Does God call women to serve as equal partners in marriage and as leaders in the church?
    The answer to this straightforward question is deeply contested. Into the fray, Lucy Peppiatt offers her work on interpretation of the Bible and Christian practice. With careful exegetical work, Peppiatt considers relevant passages in Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Peter, 1 Timothy, and 1 Corinthians. There she finds a story of God releasing women alongside men into all forms of ministry, leadership, work, and service on the basis of character and gifting, rather than biological sex. Those who see the overturning of male-dominated hierarchy in the Scriptures, she argues, are truly rediscovering an ancient message–a message distorted by those who assumed that a patriarchal world, which they sometimes saw reflected in the Bible, was the one God had ordained.

With the God’s Word for Today series, pastor Tim Chester has updated Stott’s classic book The Contemporary Christian and made it accessible to new generations of readers. In The Church, Stott presents a biblical portrait of the church as a covenant community at the center of God’s purposes.

With the God’s Word for Today series, pastor Tim Chester has updated Stott’s classic book The Contemporary Christian and made it accessible to new generations of readers. In The Disciple, Stott explores four often-neglected aspects of Christian discipleship in light of Scripture. First, followers of Jesus should be good listeners–to God, one another, and the world. Second, both the mind and emotions have an indispensable place in discipleship, and we should understand how they relate to each other. Third, how do we discover God’s will for our lives, and what does the Bible tell us about guidance, vocation, and ministry? Finally, the primary distinguishing mark of a Christian is the first fruit of the Spirit: love. Following Christ encompasses all of life, and today’s world desperately needs disciples who embrace their full God-given potential. Continue Reading Disciple Gods Word For Today

  • 10 Words That Will Change Everything You Know About God

    $15.99

    The Bible teaches that we will experience God based on how we perceive Him. Incidentally, it’s the same with God, people, and the world at large; we are never fully experiencing anyone as they are as much as the way we perceive them.

    Contrary to what religion has pushed down our throats for centuries, God is proactively attempting to give us life at its best! But like the children of Israel, because of our beliefs, we limit what God can do in our lives.

    What if we could identify just 10 words that, when properly understood, could change the way we perceive and experience God and open our hearts to an entirely new level of hope, faith and optimism?

    Would you want to know those 10 Words? That’s what this book is all about!

    These are the words that:
    -Religion deliberately mistranslated to make you see God has harsh and vengeful!
    -Reveal the love of God beyond anything you’ve ever imagined!
    -Remove the veil from your heart that limits how what you can receive from God!
    -Make walking with God easy and light!
    -Will make you fall deeper in Love with God.
    -Develop an immovable trust in Him. Continue Reading 10 Words That Will Change Everything You Know About God

With the God’s Word for Today series, pastor Tim Chester has updated Stott’s classic book The Contemporary Christian and made it accessible to new generations of readers. Unless Scripture is widely respected and its teaching followed, there is little hope for the church to be renewed or to influence the surrounding culture for good. In The Bible, Stott explains how Christians can continue standing firmly on the Word, respond with obedience, and interpret the text faithfully in our own cultural contexts. He also paints a picture of authentic biblical preaching, in which both preacher and hearers listen for and respond to the voice of God. With pastoral wisdom and clear biblical exposition, Stott helps readers understand the central role of the Word of God in the church and the individual lives of all followers of Jesus.

Stott explains a biblical perspective on the human paradox: our dignity and our depravity. He then considers common objections to the gospel message, the importance of Jesus’ physical resurrection, and what affirming that Christ is Lord means for all of life.

  • Final Word : Why We Need The Bible

    $15.00

    The Bible is under attack on all sides. Unbelievers denounce it as backward, narrow-minded, and intolerant, and even some professing Christians deny its truth to gain approval from the culture. With each assault, we hear echoes of the serpent’s question in the garden of Eden: Did God really say? Unfortunately, many believers don’t know how to answer these challenges and find their confidence in God’s Word shaken.

    In Final Word: Why We Need the Bible, Dr. John MacArthur defends the trustworthiness of Scripture, with the goal of equipping the church to stand firm for the truth even when others abandon it. Only when God’s people recognize the Bible for what it is–God’s inerrant, authoritative Word–will they be able to fulfill their calling and carry the message of God’s salvation to the world.

    Additional Info
    What does it mean to read with Eastern eyes? According to Jackson Wu, an Eastern perspective is in many ways culturally closer to that of the first-century world. Cultural values of honor and shame, social status, tradition, hierarchy, and relationships are similar in both East Asia and the New Testament.

    As readers, we bring our cultural understanding and values to the text. Our biases and background influence what we observe-and what we overlook. Wu aims to help us develop our Eastern lenses in order to interpret Scripture well and gain insights we might have missed.

    In Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes, Wu demonstrates how an Eastern perspective sheds light on Paul’s most complex letter. When read this way, we see how honor and shame shape so much of Paul’s message and mission. Continue Reading Reading Romans With Eastern Eyes

    Invaluable translation tool for students of the New Testament

    The manuscripts that form the Greek New Testament are scattered throughout the world and are usually only accessible to scholars and professionals. These were the manuscripts read by the earliest Christians, which comprised their New Testament. In his volumes, Philip Wesley Comfort bridges the gap between these extant copies and today’s critical text by providing accurate transcriptions of the earliest New Testament manuscripts, with photographs on the facing pages so readers can see the works for themselves. Comfort also provides an introduction to each manuscript that summarizes the content, date, current location, provenance, and other essential information, including the latest findings. This allows students and scholars to make well-informed decisions about the translation and interpretation of the New Testament.

    Volume 1 includes manuscripts from Papyrus 1-72. Volume 2 includes manuscripts from Papyrus 75-139 as well as from the uncials. In addition, it features a special section on determining the date of a manuscript. This two-volume set replaces the previously published single volume Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts, as it contains many new manuscripts, updated research, and higher quality images of all manuscripts previously covered.

But they’re also here to raise a few questions of their own: What if we cleared the deck on our preconceptions of this book and encountered it anew? What if we came with the understanding that our questions are welcome? And what if these pages presented less of a system to figure out, and more of a story to step into – a story with more surprising plot twists than we might think?Michael and Lauren spent their childhoods in church and Sunday school, they spent part of their twenties finding their way in the world in New York City, and today they’re shaping their careers while pursuing doctoral studies in theology and ethics. Along the way, they’ve had to wrangle very real questions – both their own, and of their friends – about why, where, and how the most controversial book in history fits in our world today.Not What You Think not only blows the dust off dated misperceptions of this ancient book, it engages the problems of this book head-on – the parts that make modern readers squeamish, skeptical, and uncertain.

    Globalization. Homelessness. Ecological and economic crisis. Conflicts over sexuality. Violence. These crisis-level issues may seem unique to our times, but Paul’s Letter to the Romans has something to say to all of them.

    Following their successful Colossians Remixed, Sylvia Keesmaat and Brian Walsh unpack the meaning of Romans for its original context and for today.

Intentionally avoiding abstract debates about Paul’s theology, Keesmaat and Walsh move back and forth between the present and the past as they explore themes of home, economic justice, creation care, the violence of the state, sexuality, and Indigenous reconciliation. They show how Romans engages with the lived reality of those who suffer from injustice, both in the first century and in the midst of our own imperial realities.

Kaltner and McKenzie analyze two kinds of clues: (1) Smoking Guns- those that are obvious upon any close reading of biblical texts, and (2) Dusting for Prints-those that are more subtle or hidden from nonspecialists because of their unfamiliarity with the languages, culture, and larger content of the Bible.Written in a jargon-free and accessible style, Sleuthing the Bible is an ideal resource for anyone who wants to dig deeper into the biblical text.

  • Surprised By Jesus Again

    $22.00

    A bold, historical, robust approach to reading Scripture and encountering Jesus anewNo one expects to be surprised. Yet biblical interpretation can do exactly that. Christians expect to see Jesus as they read the Bible, but when and how Jesus actually speaks through Scripture can still surprise us!Drawing on the early church’s theological giants-Origen, Augustine, Gregory the Great, and more from the historical cloud of witnesses-author Jason Byassee models how we can recover ancient Christians’ multiple ways of reading the Bible to our benefit. As Byassee says, God himself is Jewish, Catholic, and Pentecostal-so much larger than our own little corner on the truth-and this book offers readers a refreshingly enhanced vision of the Bible and of Jesus himself.

  • Visual Theology Guide To The Bible

    $19.99

    We live in a visual culture. Today, people increasingly rely upon visuals to help them understand new and difficult concepts. The rise and stunning popularity of the Internet infographic has given us a new way in which to convey data, concepts, and ideas.

    But the visual portrayal of truth is not a novel idea. Indeed, God himself used visuals to teach truth to his people. The tabernacle of the Old Testament was a visual representation of man’s distance from God and God’s condescension to his people. Each part of the tabernacle was meant to display something of man’s treason against God and God’s kind response. Likewise, the sacraments of the New Testament are visual representations of man’s sin and God’s response. Even the cross was both reality and a visual demonstration.

    As teachers and lovers of sound theology, Challies and Byers have a deep desire to convey the concepts and principles of systematic theology in a fresh, beautiful, and informative way. In this book, they have made the deepest truths of the Bible accessible in a way that can be seen and understood by a visual generation.

    Visual Theology Guide to the Bible is a multi-faceted introduction to the Bible, combining graphics and text to teach the nature and contents of the Bible in a fresh and interesting way. Intended for both new believers and long-time Christians, you will encounter familiar teachings from the Scriptures in a fresh format. Meet the Bible again for the first time.

  • 21 Qualities Of Leaders In The Bible

    $19.99

    Where do most people today turn for leadership? Some examine the world of politics. Some look for models in the entertainment industry. Many look to the world of business-to the successful stories of CEOs, management consultants, and theoreticians with PhDs. However, the truth is that the best source of leadership teaching today comes not from not any of these sources but from the one true source: the Word of God. The Bible is the greatest source on leadership that has ever been written.

    John Maxwell has spent decades researching and equipping others for leadership, and his primary source of leadership principles has always been the Word of God. In this workbook, he draws on the stories of the men and women in Scripture to show how they modeled what he calls the 21 indispensable qualities of a leader. He also shows how many of the people in the Bible failed to embody these leadership qualities, and how that affected them and, in some cases, entire populations of people.

    Sessions include in-depth studies on the leadership qualities of men and women such as Ruth, Boaz, Joshua, David, Abigail, Nathan, Elijah, Daniel, Stephen, John, Paul, James, and especially Jesus.

    Each session contains the following sections:
    *The quality: An overview of the quality and how it operates (includes quotes from the book and discussion questions based on the qualities covered)
    *Biblical example: An overview of the primary character in the Bible who demonstrated that quality or wrote about that quality
    *Another look: Bible study questions based on the highlighted passages
    *Highlighting the lesson: questions that focus on the central teaching points
    *Lasting implications: questions to help draw out personal conclusions
    *Daily assignments: five sets of questions that guide readers on how to put the qualities into effect during their week

    This workbook has been designed to enhance readers’ experience of working through John Maxwell’s leadership materials and is intended both for individual use and for small groups. Continue Reading 21 Qualities Of Leaders In The Bible

    This volume written by a theologian and a biblical scholar offers a fresh model for understanding Scripture as God’s Word. The authors work out the four Nicene marks of the church–one, holy, catholic, and apostolic–as marks of Scripture, offering a new way of thinking about the Bible that bridges theology and interpretation. Their ecclesial analogy invites us to think of Scripture in similar terms to how we think of the church, countering the incarnational model propagated by Peter Enns and others.

  • Alleged Errors Of The Bible Abridged

    $14.99

    How many angels were at the empty tomb?
    Did God or Satan cause King David to sin?
    If the Bible is God’s Word, then why are there so many contradictions in it?

    Questions like these have been heard many times by those seeking to share their faith. The average believer may not always know the answer for every accusation made about the reliability of Scripture. After seeing a pamphlet circulating at a local parish listing several supposed self-contradictions in Scripture, John Haley made it his life’s work to address every known discrepancy or alleged biblical contradiction he could find. In this abridged version of Alleged Discrepancies of the Bible, Haley directly addresses these questions and many other misunderstandings of Scripture. Haley directly addresses the origin of Bible discrepancies, disagreements in doctrine regarding the nature of the triune God and of mankind, and then takes on historical references of people, places, and dates. By shedding light on these disputed passages and convincingly disproving the claims of skeptics, Haley lifts the mystery surrounding the Bible and instills confidence in the believer’s reliance on God’s written Word.

    Our handling of what we call biblical law veers between controversy and neglect.

    On the one hand, controversy arises when Old Testament laws seem either odd beyond comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively reprehensible (executing children). On the other, neglect results when we consider the law obsolete, no long carrying any normative power (tassels on clothing, making sacrifices). Even readers who do attempt to make use of the Old Testament law often find it either irrelevant, hopelessly laden with thou shalt nots, or simply so confusing that they throw up their hands in despair. Despite these extremes, people continue to propose moral principles from these laws as the biblical view and to garner proof texts to resolve issues that arise in society. The result is that both Christians and skeptics regularly abuse the Torah, and its true message often lies unheard.

    Walton and Walton offer in The Lost World of the Torah a restorative vision of the ancient genre of instruction for wisdom that makes up a significant portion of the Old Testament. In the ancient Near East, order was achieved through the wisdom of those who governed society. The objective of torah was to teach the Israelites to be wise about the kind of order needed to receive the blessings of God’s favor and presence with the context of the covenant. Here readers will find fresh insight on this fundamental genre of the Old Testament canon. Continue Reading Lost World Of The Torah

  • 3 Views On Israel And The Church

    $21.99

    A comparison of three major views on the relationship between Israel and the church

    The relationship between Israel and the church is a long-standing debate in Christian theology, and Romans 9-??11 are the most important chapters for understanding it. How one interprets these chapters determines how one understands biblical theology, how the New Testament uses the Old Testament, and how the old and new covenants are related.

    To help readers draw their own conclusion, four leading scholars on this issue present a case for their viewpoint, followed by a response and critique from the others. Michael Vlach argues for a future mass conversion and a role for ethnic Israel in the church. Fred Zaspel and Jim Hamilton present a case for a future mass conversion that does not include a role for ethnic Israel. And Benjamin Merkle contends that Romans 9 – 11 promises neither a future mass conversion nor a role for ethnic Israel.

    General editor Andrew David Naselli helpfully sets the debate in its larger biblical-theological context in the introduction, while Jared Compton provides a useful summary of the views and interactions at the end of the volume. Continue Reading 3 Views On Israel And The Church
