  • 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.

    Joyce’s Philippians provides a key study tool that will help you develop a stronger relationship with God. If you take time to examine His word, you’ll see how much He loves you and how much He desires that you live a joyful, content life on earth!

    $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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Enjoying The Bible

    $22.99

    Many Christians view the Bible as an instruction manual. While the Bible does provide instruction, it can also captivate, comfort, delight, shock, and inspire. In short, it elicits emotion–just like poetry. By learning to read and love poetry, says literature professor Matthew Mullins, readers can increase their understanding of the biblical text and learn to love God’s Word more. Each chapter includes exercises and questions designed to help readers put the book’s principles and practices into action.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Odyssey Of Grace Part Two The New Testament In Review From Ephesians To Rev

    $19.99

    *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.

    Join in on the conversation as Cy discusses these questions, and so many more!

  • 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.

  • 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

    $24.99

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

    *The hotly contested miracle of Jesus turning water into wine.
    *Judas, his betrayal of Christ, and how and when he died.

  • 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.
