  • Method Of Christian Theology

    $22.99

    When handling the things of God, our method matters.

    Everyone who thinks about God has a method for approaching the subject, whether they recognize it or not. A theological method addresses foundational questions such as: What is theology? How should we approach Scripture? What is the role of tradition, philosophy, and experience? How do we use theology in ministering to others? These questions are vital for anyone studying God and his Word-how one defines theology, sees its task, and uses its sources will shape one’s doctrine, for better or worse.

    In The Method of Christian Theology, Rhyne Putman guides readers through the essential first words of systematic theology. Written for entry-level theology students, this book gives clear suggestions about how to use theological sources, how to reason through difficult problems, and how to apply theological reflection to paper writing and preaching. By studying the foundations of theology, readers will be better equipped to serve God’s people in whatever ministry they are called to. Continue Reading Method Of Christian Theology

  • Marriage Scripture And The Church

    $29.99

    This book takes a distinctive approach to the same-sex-union debate by framing the issue as a matter of marriage. Darrin Snyder Belousek demonstrates that the interpretation of Scripture affects whether the church should revise its doctrine of marriage for the sake of sanctioning same-sex union. Engaging charitably yet critically with opposing viewpoints, he delves deeply into what marriage is, what it is for, and what it means as presented in the biblical narrative and theological tradition, articulating a biblical-traditional theology of marriage for the contemporary church. Afterword by Wesley Hill. Continue Reading Marriage Scripture And The Church

  • Simply Trinity : The Unmanipulated Father, Son, And Spirit

    $24.99

    What if the Trinity we’ve been taught is not the Trinity of the Bible? In this groundbreaking book, Matthew Barrett reveals a shocking discovery: we have manipulated the Trinity, recreating the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our own image.

You will be surprised to learn that what you believe about the Trinity has untold consequences for salvation and the Christian life. To truly know God, you must meet the One who is simply Trinity.

  • Church : An Introduction

    $14.99

    A Concise Systematic Theology of the Church The word church evokes different thoughts from different people-some think of a group of people who meet together on Sunday mornings; some think of a building; and others think of a bigger, global movement. In this installment of the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Gregg Allison offers an overview of specific doctrines and practices of different churches and denominations as each finds its unique expression through its identity, leadership, government, sacraments, ministries, and future. For each of these topics, Allison lays out the common practice among local church communities (mere ecclesiology) and examines how they diverge from one another in their expression (more ecclesiology). Through this systematic primer, readers will come away knowing not only how various churches differ, but also how they’re ultimately united as the body of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit.

  • Postmortem Opportunity : A Biblical And Theological Assessment Of Salvation

    $40.00

    One of Jesus’ most basic commands to his disciples was to tell the world about the good news of his life, death, and resurrection.

    From the earliest days of the church, Christians have embraced this calling. But for those Christians who emphasize the need for an active response to the gospel in order to be saved, this raises some difficult questions: What about those who did not hear the gospel before death? Or what about those who heard an incorrect or incomplete version of the gospel? Or what about those who were too young or who were otherwise unable to respond? In light of these challenging questions, theologian James Beilby offers a careful consideration of the possibility for salvation after death. After examining the biblical evidence and assessing the theological implications, he argues that there is indeed hope for faith–even beyond death.

  • Path Of Faith

    $22.00

    The closely related biblical themes of covenant and law have often been debated.

    Yet they are among the most important topics in Scripture–theologically and practically. They address how God graciously relates to us and how we ought to live on a daily basis. In this ESBT volume, Brandon Crowe builds on previous books in the series as he considers covenant and law throughout both Old and New Testaments. The Path of Faith lays out key principles such as the obligation of people to obey their Creator, how Jesus’ perfect obedience to God’s law opens the way to eternal life, and what the law means for us today as we continue walking by faith. The Path of Faith reveals the unity of the biblical witness and the consistent call for God’s people to show him covenant loyalty, all while recognizing the unique saving work of Christ on our behalf. 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 Path Of Faith

  • Introduction To Ecclesiology (Revised)

    $30.00

    What is the church? Why are there so many different expressions of church throughout time and space, and what ties them all together?

In this text, theologian Veli-Matti Karkkainen provides a wide-ranging survey of the rich field of ecclesiology in the midst of rapid developments and new horizons. Drawing on Karkkainen’s international experience and comprehensive research on the church, this revised and expanded edition is thoroughly updated to incorporate recent literature and trends.

  • 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

  • Theological Ethics : The Moral Life Of The Gospel In Contemporary Context

    $29.99

    Be Prepared to Think Theologically through Today’s Most Pressing Ethical and Moral Issues

    In Theological Ethics theologian, pastor, and ethicist W. Ross Hastings gives pastors, ministry leaders, and students a guide designed to equip them to think deeply and theologically about the moral formation of persons in our communities, about ethical inquiry and action, and about the tone and content of our engagement in the public square. The book presents a biblical perspective and a gospel-centered framework for thinking about complex contemporary issues in ways are life-giving and that will lead readers into greater flourishing as human persons in community.

    This book is distinctive in presenting:

    *A framework for theological ethics that is robustly theological and Trinitarian. Ethics isolated from the gospel and theology becomes bad news, but when it is informed by and empowered by participation in the triune God of grace, it is part of the good news of the gospel.

    *An approach to theology and theological ethics that makes the Word of God the ultimate authority and it is therefore grounded in the biblical narrative and texts.

    *An understanding that theological ethics are inherently missional. The church as the image of the triune God makes it the home of ethics, but in light of its missional identity, it will reverberate outwards to engage the world in ways that are humble and not power-mongering, that are gospel-based and shalom-evoking.

    Theological Ethics is for those who lead churches or ministries (or someday will) and who urgently need deep theological grounding as they daily encounter ethical and moral issues where they need to provide a gracious, truthful, and gospel-directed response.

  • What The Bible Says About Birth Control Infertility Reproductive Technology

    $7.99

    New from Bestselling Author Wayne Grudem

    The topic of reproductive issues is a sensitive one that every married couple must face. Advances in reproductive technology offer couples more options than ever before to have children-fertility treatment methods; embryo adoption; and prefertilization genetic screening. With all of these solutions available, plus the blessing of adoption, it can be difficult for Christian couples to determine which to consider when the Bible doesn’t give explicit answers. Theologian Wayne Grudem applies biblical truth and ethical reasoning to these problems in order to help Christians navigate issues surrounding birth control, infertility, reproductive technology, and adoption as they seek to live out God’s word in an ever-changing society.

  • Person Of Christ

    $18.99

    An Introduction to Christology

    People are just as interested in discovering who Jesus is today as they were in the first century. Some view Jesus as a great prophet or a wise philosopher; for others, he is an important religious leader or even a revolutionary. In this addition to the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Stephen Wellum examines the divinity and humanity of Christ, focusing on who Jesus is from Scripture and historical theology. He also expounds on why Jesus is utterly unique and how Christians should think about the incarnation-the truth that God the Son took on flesh and became a man. As readers spend time thinking through the glory and majesty of Jesus, they will delight to know and proclaim Christ alone. Continue Reading Person Of Christ

  • Providence

    $39.99

    New from Best-Selling Author John Piper

Pastor and author John Piper draws on a lifetime of theological reflection, biblical study, and practical ministry to lead readers on a stunning tour of the sightings of God’s providence-from Genesis to Revelation-to discover the all-encompassing reality of God’s purposeful sovereignty over all of creation and all of history. Exploring the goal, nature, and extent of God’s purposes for the world, Piper offers an invitation to know the God who holds all things in his hands yet remains intimately involved in the lives of his people.

  • 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.

  • Attributes Of God

    $15.99

    Practical Theology for the Church Today

    God is the Creator of all things. As Creator, he is unique and cannot be compared to any of his creatures. Throughout history, the church has recognized the importance of studying and understanding God’s attributes. In this addition to the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, theologian Gerald Bray examines the attributes of God, presenting their biblical foundations, systematic-theological structure, and practical relevance for the church today. Bray separates the attributes into two categories: God’s relational attributes (which focus on how he interacts with his creation) and his essential attributes (which describe his essence and relation to time). As Christians better understand the attributes of God they will see, delight in, and apply what Scripture reveals concerning who God is and what he is like. Continue Reading Attributes Of God

  • New Creation And The Storyline Of Scripture

    $15.99

    A Biblical Theology of the New Creation from Genesis to Revelation

    In the beginning, the perfectly good God created a perfectly good universe. However, through the sin of Adam and Eve, this creation lapsed into a fallen state-yet God promised to bring restoration. In this addition to the Short Studies in Biblical Theology series, Frank Thielman traces the theme of the new creation through the Bible. Throughout the biblical story, God has pointed again and again to a new creation, inaugurated by the return of Jesus. As Christians pursue their work on earth with the love, kindness, and generosity God has shown them, they already experience this new creation, and exemplify it to a needy, watching world.

  • 3 Views On Christianity And Science

    $18.99

    When it comes to relating Christianity to modern Western culture, perhaps no topic is more controversial than the relationship between Christianity and science. Outside the church, the myth of an age-old conflict between science and Christianity is nearly ubiquitous in popular culture and can poison the well before a fruitful dialogue can begin. Within the church, opposing viewpoints on the relation between Christianity and science often lead to division and rancor.

    Three Views on Christianity and Science addresses both types of conflict. Featuring leading evangelical representatives, it presents three primary options for the compatibility of Christianity and science and models constructive dialogue on the surrounding controversial issues.

    The highlighted contributors and their views are:

    Michael Ruse, Independence View–When functioning correctly, science and Christian theology operate independently of each other, seeking answers to different questions through different means.

    Alister McGrath, Dialogue View–Though the natural sciences and Christian philosophy and theology function differently, they can and should inform each other.
    Bruce L. Gordon, Constrained Integration View–Science, philosophy, and theology all contribute to our understanding of reality. Their interactions constrain each other and together present an optimally coherent and integrated picture of reality.

    By engaging with the viewpoints of the contributors, readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the compatibility of science and Christianity, as well as of the positions of those who disagree with them. Scholars, students, pastors, and interested laypeople will be able to make use of this material in research, assignments, sermons and lessons, evangelism, and apologetics.

  • Majority World Theology

    $65.00

    More Christians live in the Majority World than in Europe and North America. Yet most theological literature does not reflect the rising tide of Christian reflection coming from these regions. Bringing together theological resources from past and present, East and West, this work engages conversations with leading global scholars on theology, faith, and mission for the enrichment of the entire church.

    At this moment in history, more Christians live in the Majority World than in Europe and North America. Yet most theological literature does not reflect the rising tide of Christian reflection coming from these regions. If we take seriously the Spirit’s movement around the globe, we must consider how the rich textures of Christianity in the Majority World can enliven, inform, and challenge all who are invested in the ongoing work of theology. As Christians have done throughout history, Majority World theologians today are seeking to faithfully interpret and apply Christianity in their own contexts. Their work and dialogue with one another is crucial for the mutual enrichment of theology, faith, and mission for the entire church. Majority World Theology offers an unprecedented opportunity to enter such conversations on the core Christian doctrines with leading scholars from around the globe. Seeking to bring together the strongest theological resources from past and present, East and West, the volume editors have assembled a diverse team of contributors to develop insights informed by the questions of worldwide geographic and cultural contexts. This book features:

    *a comprehensive overview of systematic theology with sections on the Trinity, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology

    *contributors including Amos Yong, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Victor I. Ezigbo, Wonsuk Ma, Aida Besanon Spencer, Randy S. Woodley, Munther Isaac, and Veli-Matti Karkkainen

    *explorations of how Scripture, tradition, and culture fit together to guide the church’s theological reflection

    *scholars demonstrating how to read the Bible and think theologically in light of contextual resources and concerns

    *inside views on what doing theology looks like in contributors’ cultures and what developments they hope for in the future

    When we learn what it means for Jesus to be Lord in diverse places and cultures, we grasp the gospel more fully and are more able to see the blind spots of our own local versions of Christianity. Majority World Theology pr Continue Reading Majority World Theology

  • 3rd Person Of The Trinity

    $34.99

    Recent decades have witnessed increased attention on the Holy Spirit, recognizing it as a critical component in Christian thought. While the volume of publications on the Spirit indicate that scholarly discussion about the Spirit is both creative and lively, it does sometimes appear to be diffused across the spectrum of contemporary theological thought. Nowhere does this scattering seem more prevalent when discussion of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit occurs in outlying areas of doctrine and practice rather than within its native context–the doctrine of God.

    The 2020 Los Angeles Theology Conference examined pneumatology as a core component of the doctrine of the Trinity, offering constructive proposals for understanding the doctrine of the Holy Spirit with theological and historical depth, ecumenical scope, and analytic clarity. This book represents the proceedings of the conference. Continue Reading 3rd Person Of The Trinity

  • Systematic Theology Second Edition

    $59.99

    The most widely-used text of the last 25 years in its discipline, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem has been thoroughly revised and expanded (all 57 chapters) for the first time while retaining the features that have made it the standard in its field: clear explanations, an emphasis on each doctrine’s scriptural basis, and practical applications to daily life.

    With several hundred pages of new content, this new edition now includes the following distinctive features.

    *Updated, fuller analysis of several recent controversies within evangelicalism, including the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity, the question of God’s atemporal eternity, the role of women in the church, seeker-sensitive churches, miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary worship music.

    *New, thoughtful critiques of open theism, the new perspective on Paul, Molinism (or middle knowledge), Free Grace theology, and the preterist view of Christ’s second coming

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on the clarity of Scripture

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on creation and evolution (including a longer critique of theistic evolution)

    *New discussion of how biblical inerrancy applies to some specific problem verses in the Gospels

    *Additional material respectfully explaining evangelical Protestant differences with Roman Catholicism, Protestant liberalism, and Mormonism.

    *Completely updated bibliographies

    *All Scripture quotations updated from RSV to ESV

    *An explanation of why monogenes in John 3:16 and elsewhere should be translated as only begotten rather than merely only (this is a change from the first edition)

    *A contemporary worship song added at the end of each chapter (while retaining the traditional hymns as well)

    *Numerous other updates and corrections

    Part of the brilliance of Systematic Theology over the years has been its simplicity and ease of use. Each chapter follows the same structure. First, there is discussion of the doctrine being considered, such as justification or the Trinity or the deity of Christ. An explanation of where that doctrine is supported in the Bible and possible objections follow. Personal application and key terms to know for personal growth are then provided. Chapters also include a scripture memory passage, references to other literature on the topic, and suggested hymns and worship songs.

  • Reformed Systematic Theology Volume 2

    $65.00

    The aim of systematic theology is to engage not only the head but also the heart and hands. Only recently has the church compartmentalized these aspects of life-separating the academic discipline of theology from the spiritual disciplines of faith and obedience. This new multivolume work brings together rigorous historical and theological scholarship with spiritual disciplines and practical insights-characterized by a simple, accessible, comprehensive, Reformed, and experiential approach. In this volume, Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley shift from the doctrine of God (theology proper) to the doctrine of humanity (anthropology) and the doctrine of Christ (Christology). This extensive reformed theology explores the Bible’s teaching about who we are and why we were created, as well as who Jesus is and why his divinity is essential to the Christian faith.

  • Doctrine Of Creation

    $50.00

    According to Bruce Ashford and Craig Bartholomew, one of the best sources for regaining a robust, biblical doctrine of creation is the recovery of Dutch neo-Calvinism. Tracing historical treatments and exploring theological themes, Ashford and Bartholomew develop the Kuyperian tradition’s rich resources on creation for systematic theology and the life of the church today.

    Apart from the doctrine of God, no doctrine is as comprehensive as that of creation. It is woven throughout the entire fabric of Christian theology. It goes to the deepest roots of reality and leaves no area of life untouched. Across the centuries, however, the doctrine of creation has often been eclipsed or threatened by various forms of gnosticism. Yet if Christians are to rise to current challenges related to public theology and ethics, we must regain a robust, biblical doctrine of creation. According to Bruce Ashford and Craig Bartholomew, one of the best sources for outfitting this recovery is Dutch neo-Calvinism. Abraham Kuyper, Herman Bavinck, and their successors set forth a substantial doctrine of creation’s goodness, but recent theological advances in this tradition have been limited. Now in The Doctrine of Creation Ashford and Bartholomew develop the Kuyperian tradition’s rich resources on creation for systematic theology and the life of the church today. In addition to tracing historical treatments of the doctrine, the authors explore intertwined theological themes such as the omnipotence of God, human vocation, and providence. They draw from diverse streams of Christian thought while remaining rooted in the Kuyperian tradition, with a sustained focus on doing theology in deep engagement with Scripture. Approaching the world as God’s creation changes everything. Thus The Doctrine of Creation concludes with implications for current issues, including those related to philosophy, science, the self, and human dignity. This exegetically grounded constructive theology contributes to renewed appreciation for and application of the doctrine of creation-which is ultimately a doctrine of profound hope.

Turning to the Bible’s grand storyline, Scott Christensen examines how sin, evil, corruption, and death fit into the broad outlines of redemptive history. He argues that God’s ultimate end in creation is to magnify his glory to his image-bearers, most notably by defeating evil through the atoning work of Christ. Continue Reading What About Evil

  • Splendour In The Dark

    $20.00

    Several years before he converted to Christianity, C. S. Lewis published a narrative poem, Dymer, which not only sheds light on the development of his literary skills but also offers a glimpse of his intellectual and spiritual growth. Including the complete annotated text of Lewis’s poem, this volume helps us understand both Lewis’s change of mind and our own journeys of faith.

    Several years before he converted to Christianity, C. S. Lewis published a narrative poem, Dymer, under the pseudonym Clive Hamilton. Later, of course, Lewis became well known for his beloved imaginative stories, such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Till We Have Faces, as well as his ability to defend and articulate the faith in works such as Mere Christianity. But what about his literary work before his conversion? In this fourth volume in the Hansen Lectureship Series, Jerry Root contends that Lewis’s early poem Dymer can not only shed light on the development of Lewis’s literary skills but also offer a glimpse of what was to come in his intellectual and spiritual growth-a splendour in the dark, to borrow one of Lewis’s own lines from the poem. Under Root’s careful analysis, Dymer becomes a way to understand both Lewis’s change of mind as well as the way in which each of us is led on a journey of faith. This volume also includes the complete text of Dymer with annotations from David C. Downing, co-director of the Marion E. Wade Center. The Hansen Lectureship series offers accessible and insightful reflections by Wheaton College faculty members upon the transformative work of the Wade Center authors.

  • Mystery Of The Trinity

    $49.99

    Starting with the doctrine of the Trinity, Vern Poythress addresses six challenges concerning the compatibility of God’s independence with his activities in the world. The eternal activities among the persons of the Trinity offer a foundation for God’s activities in the world. Alternative metaphysical frameworks for explaining God’s transcendence and immanence run the danger of overriding the truths of biblical revelation.

  • 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

  • Reimagining Apologetics : The Beauty Of Faith In A Secular Age

    $28.00

    How should one proclaim of the gospel of Jesus Christ in a secular age? For many Christians, the traditional approach of apologetics has grown stale. In light of the current secular climate, as described by Charles Taylor and others, rhetorical strategies that previously served the church and apologists well are no longer effective. Justin Bailey seeks to address this dilemma by infusing apologetics with an appeal to the imagination, the aesthetic, and the affective. Demonstrating that this is possible, he engages with two examples of those who have done apologetics through the imagination: George MacDonald and Marilynne Robinson. By beginning with the imaginative and the aesthetic dimensions of faith before expounding proofs, Bailey argues, hearers of the good news will find both their hearts and their minds engaged.

  • Evangelical Theology Second Edition

    $59.99

    Gospel-Centered Theology for Today

    Evangelical Theology, Second Edition helps today’s readers understand and practice the doctrines of the Christian faith by presenting a gospel-centered theology that is accessible, rigorous, and balanced. According author Michael Bird the gospel is the fulcrum of Christian doctrine; the gospel is where God meets us and where we introduce the world to God. And as such, an authentically evangelical theology is the working out of the gospel in the various doctrines of Christian theology.

    The text helps readers learn the essentials of Christian theology through several key features, including:

    *A What to Take Home section at end of every part that gives readers a run-down on all the important things they need to know.
    *Tables, sidebars, and questions for discussion to help reinforce key ideas and concepts
    *A Comic Belief section, since reading theology can often be dry and cerebral, so that readers enjoy their learning experience through some theological humor added for good measure.

    Now in its second edition, Evangelical Theology has proven itself in classrooms around the world as resource that helps readers not only understand the vital doctrines of Christian theology but one that shows them how the gospel should shape how they think, pray, preach, teach, and minister in the world.

  • Challenging Conversations : A Practical Guide To Discuss Controversial Topi

    $16.99

    When was the last time you had an honest, heartfelt, yet kind and productive conversation with someone about depression, mental illness, substance abuse, pornography, premarital sex, racism, divorce, abortion, LGBTQ issues, or church scandals? Our tendency is either to avoid talking about such volatile topics at all–even with other Christians–or to go on the attack, causing rifts that do nothing to encourage further discussion or growth.

  • Trinity : An Introduction

    The Trinity is one of the most essential doctrines of the Christian faith as it reveals a magnificent truth about God-that he is one God eternally existing as three distinct persons. While Christians often struggle to find the right words to describe the union of Father, Son, and Spirit, the Bible gives clarity concerning the triune God’s activity in nature (creation), grace (redemption), and glory (reward). In the second installment of the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, theologian Scott Swain examines the Trinity, presenting its biblical foundations, systematic-theological structure, and practical relevance for the church today.

  • 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.

  • Reclaimed : How Jesus Restores Our Humanity In A Dehumanized World

    $18.99

    We live in an era of polarizing political and religious disagreement. Despite the lip service our society pays to tolerance, it’s becoming more and more difficult to look past our differences and to recognize our common humanity. The way that we treat each other is a direct result of how we see one another, and our culture is full of warning signs that we aren’t seeing each other correctly.

    In Reclaimed, author and cultural critic Andy Steiger explores the trend toward dehumanization that underlies our fraught times. People on both sides of the political aisle and from all walks of life share a deep desire for better understanding, justice, and human dignity. Yet we’re uncertain how to achieve these aims. Steiger points to Jesus as the basis for rediscovering our common ground and our shared humanity.

    In Jesus we find not only that humans are unique, valuable, and bearers of rights and responsibilities, but also that our dehumanizing tendencies–our worst inclinations toward inhumanity–can bve redeemed and restored. Jesus enables us to be fully human, and it’s in him that we rediscover the kind of relationships and society for which so many people today are longing.

  • How To Read Theology For All Its Worth

  • Divine Blessing And The Fullness Of Life In The Presence Of God

    $15.99

    The concept of blessing pervades the everyday life of Christians-from testimonies recounting God’s provision, to praise songs, to wishing someone well. In fact, the term has been so integrated into Christian language that it is rarely considered thoughtfully. In the pages of Scripture, blessing seems to be either physical or spiritual, but a fuller biblical-theological approach reveals that God’s blessing has always been both spiritual and physical.

    In Divine Blessing and the Fullness of Life in the Presence of God, William Osborne traces the theme of blessing throughout Scripture as he guides readers into a deeper understanding of how God’s gracious benevolence impacts the everyday lives of Christians.

  • God Has Chosen

    $30.00

    He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world . . . Among the traditional tenets of the Christian faith is the belief that God chooses or elects people for salvation. For some Christians, such an affirmation is an indication of God’s sovereign and perfect will. For others, such a notion is troubling for it seems to downplay the significance of human agency and choice. Throughout the church’s history, Christians have sought to understand the meaning of relevant biblical texts and debated this theological conundrum. With care and insight, theologian Mark Lindsay surveys the development of the Christian doctrine of election. After exploring Scripture on this theme, he turns to the various articulations of this doctrine from the early church fathers, including Augustine, and medieval theologians such as Aquinas, to John Calvin’s view, the subsequent debate between Calvinists and Arminians, and Karl Barth’s modern reconception of the doctrine. On this journey through the Bible and church history, readers will discover how Christians have understood the notion that God has chosen. Continue Reading God Has Chosen

    Disarming the Power of Death

    Many Christians enjoy the benefits of Christ’s sacrificial death yet remain unaware of the specific reasons he had to die.

    Today, Christians around the world accept Christ as the ransom of their souls and often teach on the joy of being born again and having the assurance of eternal life.

    His death also satisfied serious matters found in the law like righteousness, justice, and holiness.

    In this compelling review of why Jesus had to go to the cross, Randy shows us the myriad ways God has provided for his children through the obedient act of one man-Jesus.

    By his great love, Christ created a new way out of a hurting world.

  • Who Is God

    $22.99

    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

  • Questions Of Context

    $40.00

    The gospel is for every tribe, tongue, and nation (Revelation 7:9), but there is no single biblical or theological model for the relationship between the gospel and these diverse cultures. Indeed, every suggested approach carries its own range of philosophical and theological commitments that all too often remain unexamined. Contextualization is fraught with challenges-yet wrestling with questions of context is essential for how we understand mission, theology, and the embodiment of the Christian faith. German missiology has engaged these questions in a variety of ways that can both inform and critique Anglo-American traditions. In this compilation and analysis, John Flett and Henning Wrogemann translate and comment on a core thread of German missiological works, explaining both their historical and current significance. Drawn from journals and books across a century of academic discourse, these classic writings trace developments from Gustav Warneck, the father of contemporary missiology, through key thinkers such as Karl Hartenstein, who coined the term missio Dei, down to twenty-first century discussions of intercultural hermeneutics. Along the way they reveal advances, mistakes, and changing definitions as German missiologists interacted with the cultural and political realities of their time. This longitudinal study, showcasing many texts available in English for the first time, tackles the history and dynamics of contextualization head-on and sheds new light on the state of missiology today. We are reminded, Flett and Wrogemann argue, that we must keep working to honor difference within the worldwide Christian community as necessary to the fullness of our being in Christ.

  • Retrieving Augustines Doctrine Of Creation

    $30.00

    How might premodern exegesis of Genesis inform Christian debates about creation today? Imagine a table with three people in dialogue: a young-earth creationist, an old-earth creationist, and an evolutionary creationist. Into the room walks Augustine of Hippo, one of the most significant theologians in the history of the church. In what ways will his reading of Scripture and his doctrine of creation inform, deepen, and shape the conversation? Pastor and theologian Gavin Ortlund explores just such a scenario by retrieving Augustine’s reading of Genesis 1-3 and considering how his premodern understanding of creation can help Christians today. Ortlund contends that while Augustine’s hermeneutical approach and theological questions might differ from those of today, this church father’s humility before Scripture and his theological conclusions can shed light on matters such as evolution, animal death, and the historical Adam and Eve. Have a seat. Join the conversation. Continue Reading Retrieving Augustines Doctrine Of Creation

  • Biblical Theology According To The Apostles

    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.

  • Hell : A Guide

    $25.99

    From bestselling author Anthony DeStefano comes an exploration of what we know–and what we cannot know–about the most misunderstood and most controversial subject in Christianity.

    C. S. Lewis imagined it as a grey, joyless city. The Italian poet, Dante Aligheri, wrote that it was a series of nine circles. And each one of us probably has our own vision of it. But what do we really know about hell? What does the Bible tell us about it, and what is speculation, myth, or even plain error?

    Anthony DeStefano, the bestselling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, takes us on an exploration of hell, the devil, demons, and evil itself. Written with the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis and the vivid storytelling of John Bunyan and J. R. R. Tolkien, Hell: A Guide takes up questions such as:
    *Is hell a place or a state of being?
    *What does hell look like?
    *What kind of suffering do people in hell experience?
    *What are the devil and demons really like?

    Rooted in solid, orthodox Christian scholarship, this one-of-a-kind book investigates everything there is to know about one of the most fascinating, yet often misunderstood, subjects of all time. Continue Reading Hell : A Guide

  • When Doctrine Divides The People Of God

    $24.99

    Evangelicals desire to be biblical-they want their doctrine to be rooted in the Bible, their lives to be guided by the Bible, and their disagreements to be resolved by the Bible. This is not an easy task. The Bible itself is a unified story composed of 66 diverse books-each book having countless interpretations. Perceived correct interpretations and deeply held convictions can put Christians at odds with their peers.

    In When Doctrine Divides the People of God, Rhyne Putman reflects on how Christians can hold to the inerrancy of Scripture and still arrive at different interpretations, and what to do when those disagreements stand between them and the biblical call for unity. This thorough analysis of theological diversity in the church provides essential biblical application-grace in disagreement, firmness in truth, and unity in diversity.

  • What The Bible Says About How To Know Gods Will

    $9.99

    At some point, every Christian wonders, What is God’s will for me in this situation? There are many situations for which Scripture doesn’t provide a black-and-white answer. In this book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem helps readers stop overcomplicating God’s will and instead embrace the different ways they acquire wisdom for daily life. He lays out guidelines for making decisions both big and small. After looking at the 4 dimensions of every action (the action itself, attitudes, motives, and results), Grudem works through 9 sources of information and guidance, both objective (information from the Bible, information from studying the situation, information about ourselves, advice from others, changed circumstances) and subjective (conscience, heart, a human spirit, and the Holy Spirit). Readers will gain insight into how to make the right decisions about situations that arise in their lives. Continue Reading What The Bible Says About How To Know Gods Will

    $29.99

    Addressing a topic of perennial interest in Christian theology, this volume offers a constructive account of the doctrine of providence. Mark Elliott shows that, contrary to received opinion, the Bible has a lot to say about providence as a distinct doctrine within the wider scope of God’s acts of salvation. This book by a leading scholar of Christian theology and exegesis is a capstone of years of research on the history and theology of the doctrine of providence.

  • What The Bible Says About Abortion Euthanasia And The Dignity Of Human Life

    $9.99

    Abortion and euthanasia are hot-button issues in our world today, accompied by many differing views, deeply held convictions, and personal experiences related to privacy, sexual behavior, personal desires and responsibility, pregnancy, and children-but deeper than all these is the nature of human life itself. In this timely book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem argues that human life is rooted in God’s image, and it is therefore morally wrong to put an innocent human to death, whether at the beginning or end of life. He offers a biblical guide to these topics, defining his terms clearly, exploring science and politics, and weighing opposing arguments-answering questions about the protection of an unborn child, abortion in the case of rape or danger to the mother’s life, and when to stop medical treatment at the end of someone’s life. This short book will help all who seek to understand what the Bible teaches about these important issues that deal with human life.

  • Politics After Christendom

    $29.99

    For more than a millennium, beginning in the early Middle Ages, most Western Christians lived in societies that sought to be comprehensively Christian–ecclesiastically, economically, legally, and politically. That is to say, most Western Christians lived in Christendom. But in a gradual process beginning a few hundred years ago, Christendom weakened and finally crumbled. Today, most Christians in the world live in pluralistic political communities. And Christians themselves have very different opinions about what to make of the demise of Christendom and how to understand their status and responsibilities in a post-Christendom world.

    Politics After Christendom argues that Scripture leaves Christians well-equipped for living in a world such as this. Scripture gives no indication that Christians should strive to establish some version of Christendom. Instead, it prepares them to live in societies that are indifferent or hostile to Christianity, societies in which believers must live faithful lives as sojourners and exiles. Politics After Christendom explains what Scripture teaches about political community and about Christians’ responsibilities within their own communities.

    As it pursues this task, Politics After Christendom makes use of several important theological ideas that Christian thinkers have developed over the centuries. These ideas include Augustine’s Two-Cities concept, the Reformation Two-Kingdoms category, natural law, and a theology of the biblical covenants. Politics After Christendom brings these ideas together in a distinctive way to present a model for Christian political engagement. In doing so, it interacts with many important thinkers, including older theologians (e.g., Augustine, Aquinas, and Calvin), recent secular political theorists (e.g., Rawls, Hayek, and Dworkin), contemporary political-theologians (e.g., Hauerwas, O’Donovan, and Wolterstorff), and contemporary Christian cultural commentators (e.g., MacIntyre, Hunter, and Dreher).

    Part 1 presents a political theology through a careful study of the biblical story, giving special attention to the covenants God has established with his creation and how these covenants inform a proper view of political community. Part 1 argues that civil governments are legitimate but penultimate, and common but not neutral. It concludes that Christians should understand themselves as sojourners and exiles in their political communities. They ought to pursue justice, peace, and excellence i Continue Reading Politics After Christendom

  • 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.

  • Divine Dance

    $14.99

    What if changing our perception of God has the potential to change everything?

    God is not what you think. Visions of an angry, distant, moral scorekeeper or a supernatural Santa Claus handing out cosmic lottery tickets to those who attend the right church or say the right prayer dominate our culture. For many others, God has become irrelevant or simply unbelievable.

    In The Divine Dance, Fr. Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell) points readers to an unlikely opening beyond this divinity impasse: the at-times forgotten, ancient mystery of the Trinity–God as utterly one, yet three.

    Drawing from Scripture, theology, and the deepest insights of mystics, philosophers, and sages throughout history, Fr. Rohr presents a compelling alternative to aloof and fairytale versions of God:

    One God, belovedly in communion, as All-Vulnerable, All-Embracing, and All-Given to you and me.

    The Divine Dance makes accessible and practicable the Christian tradition’s most surprising gift…

    God as Community…as Friendship…as Dance.

  • Resurrection : Investigating A Rabbi From Brooklyn, A Preacher From Galilee

    $17.99

    What made Jesus the Messiah?

    This book will teach you the Jewish roots of your faith and help you gain a fresh new perspective on the resurrection of Jesus.

    In 1994, after one of the greatest rabbis of the twentieth century died at the age of ninety-two, his followers began to proclaim him as the Messiah. They expected him to rise from the dead and even come again. Is this possible? Could a deceased rabbi be the Messiah?

Brown, PhD, takes you on a captivating journey beginning in Brooklyn, New York, where this famous rabbi died in 1994, then back through Jewish history, looking at little-known Jewish beliefs about the Messiah, potential Messiahs that emerged in each generation, and teachings about the reincarnated soul of the Messiah. Dr. Brown then looks at the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus from his unique perspective as a Messianic Jew, demonstrating why Jesus’ resurrection uniquely confirms that He alone is the promised Messiah.

    This page-turner is for everyone who is interested in the Jewish roots of our faith, everyone fascinated by Jewish tradition, and everyone wanting to gain a fresh new perspective on the resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. It is also a great witnessing tool for Christians who want to share the good news of Yeshua the Messiah with their Jewish friends.

  • Heaven And Hell

    $28.00

    What happens when we die? A recent Pew Research poll showed that 72% of Americans believe in a literal heaven, 58% in a literal hell. Most people who hold these beliefs are Christian and assume they are the age-old teachings of the Bible. But eternal rewards and punishments are found nowhere in the Old Testament and are not what Jesus or his disciples taught.

    So where did the ideas come from?

    In clear and compelling terms, Bart Ehrman recounts the long history of the afterlife, ranging from The Epic of Gilgamesh up to the writings of Augustine, focusing especially on the teachings of Jesus and his early followers. He discusses ancient guided tours of heaven and hell, in which a living person observes the sublime blessings of heaven for those who are saved and the horrifying torments of hell for the damned. Some of these accounts take the form of near death experiences, the oldest on record, with intriguing similarities to those reported today.

    One of Ehrman’s startling conclusions is that there never was a single Greek, Jewish, or Christian understanding of the afterlife, but numerous competing views. Moreover, these views did not come from nowhere; they were intimately connected with the social, cultural, and historical worlds out of which they emerged. Only later, in the early Christian centuries, did they develop into the notions of eternal bliss or damnation widely accepted today.

    As a historian, Ehrman obviously cannot provide a definitive answer to the question of what happens after death. In Heaven and Hell, he does the next best thing: by helping us reflect on where our ideas of the afterlife come from, he assures us that even if there may be something to hope for when we die, there is certainly nothing to fear.

  • Our Good Crisis

    $16.00

    We live in an age of crisis.

    Financial crisis, political crisis, environmental crisis–the list goes on. We’re confronted with calamity every time we read the headlines. But behind each of these lurks another kind of crisis, one we find harder to define: a moral crisis–a crisis of goodness. Behind financial crisis is unrestrained greed; behind political crisis is the lust for power. To properly address the crises that plague our world, we must be formed as people of moral goodness. We must cultivate virtue. But the cultural headwinds are strong: outrage and fragility, persecution and affluence, injustice and impurity. In this wise and practical book, pastor Jonathan Dodson takes us back to the Beatitudes, the centerpiece of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount. Dodson examines each of the Beatitudes in the context of the new morality that buffets our society today, presenting a compelling portrait of the truly good life, both personal and social. Jesus’ vision of the good is stunning: heaven meets earth, mercy triumphs over judgment, peace transcends outrage, grace upends self-righteousness. Here is an account, not of dos and don’ts, but of genuine moral flourishing. Continue Reading Our Good Crisis

  • God Who Is There

    $18.00

    For over fifty years The God Who Is There has been a landmark work that has changed the way the church sees the world. Francis Schaeffer’s first book presents a wide-ranging analysis of the intellectual and cultural climate of the second half of the twentieth century, from philosophy to art to liberal theology. Arguing that Christians must constantly engage the questions being asked by their own–and the next–generation, he envisions an apologetics and spirituality both grounded in absolute truth and engaging the whole of reality. If we are unexcited Christians, we should go back and see what is wrong, Schaeffer writes. We are surrounded by a generation that can find ‘no one home’ in the universe. . . . In contrast to this, as a Christian I know who I am; and I know the personal God who is there. In every age, this God continues to provide the anchor of truth and the power of love to meet the world’s deepest problems. Named by Christianity Today as one of the Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals (October 2006), this redesigned classic is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection.

  • 2 Kinds Of Righteousness

    $9.99

    The instant a man knows that he is the righteousness of God in Christ, and knows what that righteousness means, Satan is defeated. — E. W. Kenyon

    In this classic Christian work, legendary Bible teacher E. W. Kenyon fully describes biblical righteousness. The church has been good at teaching about man’s need of righteousness, his weakness and his inability to please God. But far too many believers remain in that shameful state of sin condemnation because the church has neglected to proclaim who we are in Christ, that righteousness is not reserved for someday in heaven–it is available to us now! Unless you know who you are, and what you are in Christ, you cannot live a victorious life; Satan, sin, and disease will be your masters. Righteousness is the ability to stand in the presence of God without any sense of guilt or inferiority. If you live a life of weakness and defeat, it is because you do not know what you are in Christ. The supreme need of the church at this hour is to know who we are in Christ, to fully comprehend how the Father Himself looks upon us, and to walk in the knowledge that righteousness can be ours today.

  • Act Of Grace

    $17.99

    A minority of Christians give 10 percent or more of their income to churches and missions, supporting the bulk of church work done today. If more people give, the possibilities will be breathtaking?but first we must change the way we think.

    Jim Petty wants to revolutionize our view along scriptural lines. Our money is for giving; it is an exciting, tangible means for showing love and mercy to others. Petty traces this perspective through the stories of Old Testament saints, our Lord Jesus, and the early church. He also evaluates Christian giving throughout history, showing how and why it has fluctuated over time.

    Although talking about money feels taboo to many of us, God doesn’t have the same reservations, and Petty shows how we can responsibly plan our own finances, including retirement, and encourage greater generosity by educating others in a church context.

    After all, God himself is a giver, not a taker, and he calls us to imitate him in his generosity. Continue Reading Act Of Grace

Cross, whose work is respected by scholars from across the ecumenical landscape, offers an introduction to ecclesiology that demonstrates how Pentecostals can contribute to and learn from the church catholic. A forthcoming volume by the author, Serving the People of God’s Presence, will focus on the role of leadership in the church. Continue Reading People Of Gods Presence

  • Do Christians Muslims And Jews Worship The Same God Four Views

    $22.99

    During a time of global conflict, the theological question of whether Muslims, Jews, and Christians worship the same God carries political baggage. Is the God of ISIS the same as the God of Israel? Do Sunni Muslims and Protestant Christians pray to the same Creator and Sustainer of the universe?

    In this Counterpoints volume, edited by Ronnie P. Campbell, Jr., and Christopher Gnanakan, five leading scholars present the main religious perspectives on this question, demonstrating how to think carefully about an issue where opinions differ and confusion abounds. They examine related subtopics such as the difference between God being referentially the same and essentially the same, what the same means when referring to God, the significance of the Trinity in this discussion, whether religious inclusivism is inferred by certain understandings of God’s sameness, and the appropriateness of interfaith worship.

    The four main views, along with the scholars presenting them, are:
    *All Worship the Same God: Religious Pluralist View (Wm. Andrew Schwartz and John B. Cobb, Jr.)
    *All Worship the Same God: Referring to the Same God View (Francis J. Beckwith)
    *Jews and Christians Worship the Same God: Shared Revelation View (Gerald R. McDermott)
    *None Worship the Same God: Different Conceptions View (Jerry L. Walls)

    Additionally, essays by Joseph Cumming and David W. Shenk explore the implications of this question specifically for Christians wanting to minister among and build relationships with Muslims. Cumming stresses that finding common ground is key, while Shenk advocates for a respectful focus on differences.

    Insightful, gracious, and relevant, Do Christians, Muslims, and Jews Worship the Same God? sheds light on one of the most important theological issues of our day. Continue Reading Do Christians Muslims And Jews Worship The Same God Four Views

  • He Is Able

    $12.50

    He Is Able points out the reality that as much as we are incapable of doing anything outside of God’s power, God is able to do far more than we can comprehend. God’s law reveals to us that we are incapable of pleasing Him in our own power. But through His will and His ability, all things are possible. While it’s a blessing to know that He is able where we are unable, we should also understand that, although God may be able, He is not always willing. We must trust in His will.

  • Mosaic Of Atonement

    $34.99

    The Mosaic of Atonement offers a fresh and integrated approach to historic models of atonement.While modern treatments of the doctrine have tended toward either a defensive hierarchy, in which one model is singled out as most important, or a disconnected plurality, in which multiple images are affirmed but with no order of arrangement, this book argues for a reintegration of four famous pieces of atonement doctrine through the governing image of Christ-shaped mosaic.Unlike a photograph in which tiny pixels present a seamless blending of color and shape, a mosaic allows each piece to retain its recognizable particularity, while also integrating them in the service of a single larger image. If one stands close, one can identify individual squares of glass or tile that compose the greater picture. And if one steps back, there is the larger picture to be admired. Yet in the great mosaics of age-old Christian churches, the goal is not for viewers to construct the image, as in a puzzle, but to appreciate it.So too with this mosaic of atonement doctrine. While no one model is set above or against the others, the book notes particular ways in which the pieces–the feet, heart, head, and hands–mutually support one another to form a more holistic vision of Christ’s work. This is my body, Jesus said to his followers, and by reintegrating these oft-dismembered aspects of atonement, we will note fresh ways in which it was given for us.

  • Exclusion And Embrace Revised And Updated

    $32.99

    Life in the twenty-first century presents a disturbing reality. Otherness, the simple fact of being different in some way, has come to be defined as in and of itself evil. Miroslav Volf contends that if the healing word of the gospel is to be heard today, Christian theology must find ways of speaking that address the hatred of the other. Is there any hope of embracing our enemies? Of opening the door to reconciliation? Reaching back to the New Testament metaphor of salvation as reconciliation, Volf proposes the idea of embrace as a theological response to the problem of exclusion.

    Increasingly we see that exclusion has become the primary sin, skewing our perceptions of reality and causing us to react out of fear and anger to all those who are not within our (ever-narrowing) circle. In light of this, Christians must learn that salvation comes, not only as we are reconciled to God, and not only as we learn to live with one another, but as we take the dangerous and costly step of opening ourselves to the other, of enfolding him or her in the same embrace with which we have been enfolded by God.

    Volf won the 2002 Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion for the first edition of his book, Exclusion & Embrace: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness, and Reconciliation (Abingdon, 1996). In that first edition, professor Volf, a Croatian by birth, analyzed the civil war and ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia, and he readily found other examples of cultural, ethnic, and racial conflict to illustrate his points. Since September 11, 2001, and the subsequent epidemic of terror and massive refugee suffering throughout the world, Volf revised Exclusion and Embrace to account for the evolving dynamics of inter-ethnic and international strife.

  • What Is The Priesthood Of Believers

    $4.99

    Every believer has a unique ministry????and the ability to carry it out. But how do we understand our priesthood in the context of the church? Do our pastors have greater access to God? If they don’t, do we need church offices at all? The health of the church depends on correctly understanding our encouraging position in Christ. Pastor Craig Troxel first lays a foundation on Christ’s priesthood, examining both Christ’s past priestly work at his death and his present priestly work in his intercession for us in heaven. Troxel then charts an approach for living out our own priesthood every day, in whatever work God is calling us to do. Discussion questions and action points help us to apply what we’ve learned.

    Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework????otherwise they are suitable for all church situations. Continue Reading What Is The Priesthood Of Believers

    This book offers a creative and illuminating discussion of Protestant theology. Veteran teacher Phillip Cary explains how Luther’s theology arose from the Christian tradition, particularly from the spirituality of Augustine. Luther departed from the Augustinian tradition and inaugurated distinctively Protestant theology when he identified the gospel that gives us Christ as its key concept. More than any other theologian, Luther succeeds in carrying out the Protestant intention of putting faith in the gospel of Christ alone. Cary also explores the consequences of Luther’s teachings as they unfold in the history of Protestantism. Continue Reading Meaning Of Protestant Theology

  • Trinity Without Hierarchy

    $25.99

    In response to complementarian theologians who assert that the Son is eternally subordinate to the Father, the contributors to Trinity Without Hierarchy contend that this view misconstrues the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity and reduces the Son to a lower level of glory and majesty than the Father. Surveying Scripture, church history, and theology, sixteen contributors present a defense of the full and equal authority of all three members of the Trinity while critiquing approaches that border on semi-Arianism. In particular, the creedal confessions of Nicaea are upheld as the historical standard by which any proposed Trinitarian doctrine should be judged.

    While some contributors hold complementarian and others egalitarian viewpoints, all agree that Trinitarian relations are not a proper basis for understanding gender roles. Trinity Without Hierarchy is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the current debate over the relationship between Trinitarian theology and the roles of men and women.

  • Confronting Old Testament Controversies

    $19.99

    For many people, skeptics and believers alike, the Old Testament is rife with controversial passages and events that make both belief and sharing our beliefs with others difficult. Often our solutions have tended toward the extremes–ignore problem passages and pretend they don’t matter or obsess over them and treat them as though they are the only thing that matters.

    Now with clarity of purpose and fidelity to the message and spirit of Scripture as a whole, Tremper Longman confronts pressing questions of concern to modern audiences, particularly young people in the church:
    – the creation/evolution debate
    – God-ordained violence
    – the historicity of people, places, and events
    – human sexuality

    Pastors, leaders in the church, and thoughtful and troubled Christians in the pews will find here a well-reasoned and faithful approach to dealing with the Old Testament passages so many find challenging or disconcerting. Continue Reading Confronting Old Testament Controversies

  • Grace Defined And Defended

    $19.99

    Christians love to celebrate grace, but often talk about it in vague generalities. But such an important biblical concept ought to be clearly defined so it can be consistently defended. In this book, best-selling author Kevin DeYoung points modern readers back to an old document originally written to do just that. Warmly pastoral and broadly accessible, this book introduces readers to the Canons of Dort, a 17th-century work summarizing the central doctrines of the Christian faith. Widely regarded as a key pillar of the Reformed tradition, the Canons of Dort stand as a faithful witness to God’s grace-offering a depth of understanding that the church still needs today. In three concise sections-covering history, theology, and practical application-DeYoung explores what led to the Canons and why they were needed, the five important doctrines that they explain, and Dort’s place in the Reformed tradition today.

    Although many people suggest that Christianity is declining, research indicates that it continues to be the world’s most popular worldview. But even so, the Christian faith includes many controversial beliefs that non-Christians find hard to accept.

Showing how the best research from sociology, science, and psychology doesn’t disagree with but actually aligns with claims found in the Bible, these chapters help skeptics understand why these issues are signposts, rather than roadblocks, to faith in Christ.

  • Universal Christ : How A Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Ho

    $27.00

    From one of the world’s most influential spiritual thinkers, along-awaited book exploring what it means that Jesus was called Christ, and how this forgotten truth can transform everything we see, hope for, and believe.

    In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr hasnever written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious squabbling, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center.

    Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. God loves things by becoming them, he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God–except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.

    Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is.

  • Unraptured : How End Times Theology Gets It Wrong

    $16.99

    Are you rapture ready?

    As a teenager in the buckle of the Bible Belt, Zack Hunt was convinced the rapture would happen at any moment. Being ready meant never missing church, never sinning, and always listening to Christian radio.

    But when the rapture didn’t happen, Hunt’s tightly wound faith began to fray. If he had been wrong about the rapture, what else about his faith might not hold water?

    Part memoir, part tour of the apocalypse, and part call to action, Unraptured traces how the church’s focus on escaping to heaven has it mired in decay. Teetering on the brink of irrelevancy in a world rocked by refugee crises, climate change, war and rumors of war, the church cannot afford to focus on the end times instead of following Jesus in the here and now. Unraptured uses these signs of the times to help readers reorient their understanding of the gospel around loving and caring for the least of these.

  • Limitations Of Theological Truth

    $19.99

    Theology is based on God’s true and unchanging Word, but does the Bible supply an unwavering foundation for spiritual certainties? Perhaps surprisingly, Brush contends that it does not, because, like science, it is a human discipline and subject to our limitations of knowledge, interpretation, and objectivity.

    In part one, Brush unpacks this contention, showing how Christians both past and present have arrived at conclusions that actually run counter to biblical teaching, and how these interpretive viewpoints have changed over time. In part two, he makes the case that flawed theological positions have resulted in views that needlessly conflict with science, and that these clashes can be resolved with more accurate formulations. Brush evenly evaluates questions including the age of the earth, the origin of life, and the end of time.

    Christians who wish to better understand the relationship between their faith and science will be encouraged by the great harmony that Brush sees between scientific findings and biblical teaching. As he guides readers into an awareness of the inherent limitations of our knowledge, believers can cultivate greater humility regarding these contested issues.

    In this booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul cuts through the confusion by going to Scripture. After explaining who the Holy Spirit is, Dr. Sproul briefly sketches His work in this world, from giving new life to unbelievers to sanctifying and empowering God’s people.

    The Crucial Questions booklet series by Dr. R.C. Sproul offers succinct answers to important questions often asked by Christians and thoughtful inquirers. Continue Reading Who Is The Holy Spirit

  • Restless Faith : Holding Evangelical Beliefs In A World Of Contested Labels

    $19.99

    One of the most influential evangelical voices in America chronicles what it has meant for him to spend the past half century as a restless evangelical–a way of maintaining his identity in an age when many claim the label evangelical has become so politicized that it is no longer viable. Richard Mouw candidly reflects on wrestling with traditional evangelical beliefs over the years and shows that although his mind has changed in some ways, his core beliefs have not. He contends that we should hold on to the legacy that has enriched evangelicalism in the past. The Christian life in its healthiest form, says Mouw, is always a matter of holding on to essentials while constantly moving on along paths that we can walk in faithfulness only by seeking the continuing guidance of the light of God’s Word. As Mouw affirms the essentials of the evangelical faith, he helps a new generation see the wisdom embodied in them.

  • None Greater : The Undomesticated Attributes Of God

    $16.99

    For too long, Christians have domesticated God, bringing him down to our level, as if he is a God who can be tamed. But he is a God who is high and lifted up, the Creator rather than the creature, someone than which none greater can be conceived. If God is the most perfect, supreme being, infinite and incomprehensible, then certain perfect-making attributes must be true of him. Perfections like aseity, simplicity, immutability, and eternity shield God from being crippled by creaturely limitations. At the same time, this all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-wise God exhibits perfect wisdom, holiness, and love as he makes known who he is and how he will save us. When we need to be reminded of God’s magnificence, the attributes of God show us exactly why God is worthy of worship: there is none like him.

    Join Matthew Barrett as he rediscovers these divine perfections and finds himself surprised by the God he thought he knew. Your Christian walk will never be the same. Continue Reading None Greater : The Undomesticated Attributes Of God

  • Not Afraid Of The Antichrist

    $17.00

    Despite the popular theology of our day, Christians should not expect to get out of experiencing the tribulation or the end times. Nowhere in the Bible does the Lord promise us this, say Michael Brown and Craig Keener, two leading, acclaimed Bible scholars. In fact, they say, Jesus promises us tribulation in this world.

    Yet this is no reason to fear. In this fascinating, accessible, and personal book, Brown and Keener walk you through what the Bible really says about the rapture, the tribulation, and the end times. What they find will leave you full of hope. God’s wrath is not poured out on His people, and He will shield us from it–as he shielded Israel in Egypt during the ten plagues. So instead of taking comfort in what God hasn’t promised, take comfort in the words of Jesus: He has overcome the world, and we live in his victory. Continue Reading Not Afraid Of The Antichrist

  • Assurance Of Salvation

    $16.99

    For years, Robert A. Peterson taught about the assurance of salvation in seminary and Sunday school classrooms. He was concerned, however, to find that some people who, for a variety of reasons, were unable to grasp the certainty of their salvation. The Assurance of Salvation identifies these troublers of assurance and provides the remedy to diffuse insecurity.

    Peterson asserts that difficult backgrounds and experiences, intellectual doubts, tender consciences, habitual sins, and overconfidence that people face are the enemies of assurance. Through a competent handling of the Bible, he explains that by embracing three gifts from God–His Word, His Spirit, and His work in our lives–those who struggle with insecurity are able to personally experience the freedom of God’s assurance.

  • Marks Of Scripture

    $24.00

    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.

  • Saving The Reformation

    $19.00

    In the early seventeenth century, the direction of the Reformed faith hung in the balance. A group called the Remonstrants, followers of Jacobus Arminius, argued for a version of the faith that watered down many of the biblical doctrines taught by John Calvin and others before him.

    This controversy demanded a response, and in 1618-19, leaders of the Dutch Reformed Church gathered together and crafted their rebuttal: the Canons of Dort. This remarkable document answered the five errors of Arminianism-giving us the five points of Calvinism and preserving the theology of the Reformation.

    In Saving the Reformation: The Pastoral Theology of the Canons of Dort, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey introduces the key players in the debate and provides a fresh translation of the canons from the original Latin for the synod’s four-hundredth anniversary. Dr. Godfrey’s pastoral commentary aims at helping a new generation of Christians understand and appreciate this important text for themselves. As he goes through the canons point by point, we find a powerful defense of the biblical gospel, a clear vision for the church, and a celebration of God’s grace in salvation.

    Additional Info
    God’s identity is beyond what we could ever fully express in human words. But Scripture uses one particular word to describe the distinctiveness of God’s character: the Hebrew word hesed.

    Hesed is a concept so rich in meaning that it doesn’t translate well into any single English word or phrase. Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, often expressed as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love. He explores how hesed is used in the Old Testament to reveal God’s character and how he relates to his people. Ultimately, the fullness of hesed is embodied in the incarnation of Jesus.

    As we follow our God of hesed, we ourselves are transformed to live out the way of hesed, marked by compassion, mercy, and faithfulness. Discover what it means to be people of an everlasting love beyond words. Continue Reading Inexpressible : Hesed And The Mystery Of Gods Loving Kindness
