  • Primera De Corintios

    $24.99

    Un comentario exegetico-pastoral, con un estilo cercano y divulgativo. Proporciona un enfoque pastoral que, sin dejar de ser un libro academico, es practico y relevante a nuestros dias y, de forma muy concreta, al contexto de la iglesia latinoamericana de hoy.

    La primera carta del apostol Pablo a los Corintios es uno de los libros mas comentados de la Escritura. Y algunos de sus pasajes estan entre los mas utilizados y citados de todo el Nuevo Testamento: en el capitulo 11 encontramos las palabras pronunciadas regularmente en la celebracion de la Eucaristia o Santa Cena: Porque yo recibi del Seor lo que tambien os he enseado: Que el Seor Jesus, la noche que fue entregado, tomo pan; y habiendo dado gracias, lo partio y dijo: Tomad, comed: esto es mi cuerpo que por vosotros es partido… (1 Co. 11:23-29); en el capitulo 13 las utilizadas en mayoria de bodas: Si yo hablara lenguas humanas y angelicas, pero no tengo amor, vengo a ser como bronce que resuena, o cimbalo que retie… (1 Co. 13:1-8).

    Commentary to the First Epistle to Corinthians

    An exegetical-pastoral commentary, with a close and informative style. It provides a pastoral approach that, while remaining an academic book, is practical and relevant to our day and, very concretely, to the context of the Latin American church of today.

    The first letter of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians is one of the most commented books of Scripture. And some of his passages are among the most used and cited of the entire New Testament: in chapter 11 we find the words spoken regularly in the celebration of the Eucharist or Holy Supper: For I received from the Lord what I also taught you: That the Lord Jesus, on the night he was delivered, took bread; and having given thanks, he broke it and said: Take, eat: this is my body that is broken for you … (1 Cor. 11: 23-29); in chapter 13 those used in most weddings: If I speak human and angelic tongues, but have no love, I come to be like bronze that resonates, or a cymbal that retreats … (1 Cor. 13: 1-8).

  • Hosea

    $25.00

    An adulterous woman repeatedly spurns the love of her youth, while her betrayed husband offers forgiveness and seeks to win her back.

    With this bold and uncomfortable imagery, Hosea tells the story of God and his people. God calls the prophet to embody this divine suffering and redeeming forgiveness in his own marriage, thereby setting the stage for his message of God’s faithful and enduring love, his righteous judgment, and his continuing offer of reconciliation and restoration. This Tyndale commentary from Robin Routledge explores the historical, cultural, literary, and theological dimensions of the book of Hosea. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • Commentarie On Job Hosea Joel And Amos

    $60.00

    In this ACT volume, Thomas Scheck provides a new translation of Julian of Eclanum’s commentaries on Job, Hosea, Joel, and Amos. Gain insight into how early Christians read texts such as God’s speech to Job, Hosea’s symbolic representation of God’s unending love for a faithless Israel, Joel’s anticipation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and Amos’s call for social justice.

    Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind . . . Julian of Eclanum (c. 386-455) was the bishop of Eclanum, located in modern-day Italy. In this volume in IVP’s Ancient Christian Texts series, Thomas Scheck provides a new translation of Julian’s commentaries on the biblical books of Job and those of three Minor Prophets: Hosea, Joel, and Amos. Here, readers will gain insight into how early Christians read texts such as God’s speech to Job, Hosea’s symbolic representation of God’s unending love for a faithless Israel, Joel’s anticipation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and Amos’s call for social justice. While Julian was a well-known leader among the Pelagians, whose theology was famously opposed by Augustine of Hippo and ultimately determined to be outside the bounds of the church’s orthodoxy, the Pelagian movement was a significant element within the early church. And although Julian’s Pelagianism does not fundamentally affect the commentaries presented in this volume, Christians can gain insight into the truths of Scripture by reading the text alongside others, even when-or perhaps especially when-we might disagree with other aspects of their beliefs.

  • Message Of Acts (Revised)

    $30.00

    The Spirit moves the church into the world.

    That is how it has always been since the day of Pentecost, when the Spirit brought thousands from many countries into the body of Christ. With the breadth and scholarly care that marked John Stott’s years of ministry, this revised Bible Speaks Today volume opens to us the early days of the church as recorded by Luke in the book of Acts. The experiences of the early church have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about tongues and other extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves–with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? What should a normal Christian conversion look like? And, of course, how should the church reach out into the world with the message of salvation? This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume features lightly updated language, current NIV Scripture quotations and a new interior design. A study guide at the end of the book will help you more deeply ponder the message of Acts and how it speaks to your life.

  • Message Of Colossians And Philemon (Revised)

    $20.00

    Even healthy churches are never completely immune to the intellectual and spiritual pressures of their time.

    The church in Colossae was no exception. False teaching shaped by the spirit of the age was rising within the community, suggesting that a fuller knowledge and freedom was available beyond what ordinary Christians had experienced. Paul’s response was adamant: all God’s fullness is in Christ alone, and everyone who is in Christ shares in his triumph. The epistle to the Colossians is filled with teachings and warnings that are relevant to the church in every era. In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, Dick Lucas identifies key themes of Paul’s letter and considers applications for today. Guiding readers through each passage, Lucas explores the great truths of the faith packed into Colossians: freedom, victory over evil, knowledge of God, unity, and other aspects of the riches available in Christ. This new edition of a classic BST volume includes a new interior design, lightly updated language, and updated Scripture quotations throughout.

  • Hosea : A Discourse Analysis Of The Hebrew Bible

    $44.99

    Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament features today’s top Old Testament scholars and brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume.

    *The Main Idea of the Passage: A one- or two-sentence summary of the key ideas the biblical author seeks to communicate.

    *Literary Context: A brief discussion of the relationship of the specific text to the book as a whole and to its place within the broader argument.

    *Translation and Exegetical Outline: Commentators provide their own translations of each text, formatted to highlight its discourse structure and accompanied by a coherent outline that reflects the flow and argument of the text.

    *Structure and Literary Form: An overview of the literary structure and rhetorical style adopted by the biblical author, highlighting how these features contribute to the communication of the main idea of the passage.

    *Explanation of the Text: A detailed commentary on the passage, paying particular attention to how the biblical authors select and arrange their materials and how they work with words, phrases, and syntax to communicate their messages.

    *Canonical and Practical Significance: The commentary on each unit will conclude by building bridges between the world of the biblical author and other biblical authors and with reflections on the contribution made by this unit to the development of broader issues in biblical theology–particularly on how later Old Testament and New Testament authors have adapted and reused the motifs in question. The discussion also includes brief reflections on the significance of the message of the passage for readers today.

    The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament series is the go-to resource for pastors and Bible teachers looking for deep but accessible study that equips them to connect the needs of Christians today with the biblical text.

  • Message Of 1 Corinthians (Revised)

    $30.00

    The ancient city of Corinth was well-known for its prosperity, diversity–and debauchery.

    Any church planted there was bound to have problems. Indeed, snobbishness, divisiveness, insensitivity, doctrinal looseness, and overexuberance were all too common in the Corinthian church. When the apostle Paul heard about these difficulties, he was grieved because he had founded the church and felt closely tied to it. He wrote them an intense and pointed letter. In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, David Prior plainly shows the relevance of 1 Corinthians for our times. Along with clear exposition of each passage and information about the letter’s historical background, Prior identifies key principles and applications for today. When we understand the message of this epistle to the Corinthians, all churches may better live out the lordship of Christ in our cosmopolitan world. This redesigned new edition includes updated language and current NRSV Scripture quotations throughout.

  • 1-2 Samuel : An Introduction And Commentary

    $30.00

    The stories of Samuel, Saul, and David are among the most memorable in the Old Testament. Yet the lives of these individuals are bound up in the larger story of God’s purpose for his people. In this Tyndale Old Testament Commentary, V. Philips Long explores the meaning of the biblical history of Israel’s vital transition from a confederation of tribes to nationhood under a king. He shows how attending to the books of Samuel repays its readers richly in terms of literary appreciation, historical knowledge, and theological grounding. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • Message Of The Sermon On The Mount (Revised)

    $25.00

    The followers of Jesus are to be different, writes John Stott, different from both the nominal church and the secular world, different from both the religious and the irreligious. The Sermon on the Mount is the most complete delineation anywhere in the New Testament of the Christian counter-culture.

    In the Sermon on the Mount, the nearest thing to a manifesto that Jesus ever uttered, we find Jesus’ own description of what he wanted his followers to be and do. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Stott guides readers through Jesus’ well-known but often poorly understood teachings in Matthew 5 through 7. He identifies key themes in the Sermon that demonstrate its ongoing relevance to believers: a Christian’s character, influence, righteousness, piety, ambition, relationships, and commitment. Leading us to listen carefully to the meaning of each verse in its context, Stott also confronts the challenges this text raises for today’s Christians and draws out practical applications. A seven-session study guide at the end of the book will help you more deeply ponder the message of the Sermon on the Mount and how it speaks to your life. If the church truly lived by the standards and values Jesus set forth in this passage, Stott declares, it would be the authentic alternative society that he always intended it to be–showing a dark world what human life looks like under the gracious rule of God.

  • Message Of John (Revised)

    $30.00

    John’s Gospel has long been a favorite among Christians.

    In it we encounter the living Jesus in his glory and his humanity, portrayed with both simplicity and depth. Through the eyes of faith John retells the story of the Word, drawing out its meaning for his readers so that they may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God and have life in his name. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, longtime pastor Bruce Milne provides a thoughtful exposition of John well-suited to preachers and anyone who seeks a deeper appreciation of the text. He sets the stage with introductory material on the authorship of John, how it compares to the other three Gospels, and its purpose and theology. Then Milne guides readers passage-by-passage through the text, paying attention to practical application as well as interpretation. A study guide at the end of the book will help you to further ponder and apply the riches of this Gospel. This completely redesigned new edition includes updated language and Scripture quotations throughout. As Milne puts it, The mystery of Jesus Christ is the theme of this gospel; always beyond us, yet always summoning us to explore it more fully. With The Message of John, you have an accessible and reliable guide as you explore John’s powerful portrait of Christ.

  • Message Of Luke (Revised)

    $25.00

    Luke the physician was fascinated by people–rich and poor, Jews and Gentiles, men and women, rulers and slaves.

    In his Gospel he delights to portray Jesus as the Savior not of an elite group but of anyone, in any condition, who turns to him. Jesus is indeed the Savior of the world. Luke knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote his Gospel. He tells us his goal in the opening verses: to set forth an orderly and accurate account of what had been accomplished by the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Michael Wilcock gives special attention to these opening words. Then, as he examines the individual deeds and sayings of Jesus, he shows how the structure of Luke’s narrative brings out their meaning. This new edition includes updated language and current NIV Scripture quotations throughout. The good news of Luke is still true today. No one is beyond redemption unless he chooses to put himself there. This message has implications not only for our personal lives but for our churches and for society as a whole.

  • Message Of Mark (Revised)

    $25.00

    The fast-paced vitality of Mark’s narrative wins the hearts of today’s readers on its own terms.

    Yet while at first glance Mark appears to be a simple account of Jesus’ ministry, a serious study raises all kinds of questions: Why doesn’t Jesus make his true identity more obvious to the crowds? Why do his disciples find it so difficult to understand? Why is Jesus’ work met with such growing resistance? Like any great story, Mark’s Gospel unveils its meaning to those who listen attentively, inquire patiently, and reflect on its significance. In The Message of Mark, Donald English offers a wise, welcoming, and nontechnical guide to this smallest of the four Gospels. Beginning with an exploration of Mark’s purpose in writing, he examines the focal points of Jesus’ teaching, the stories, the characters, and the original audience of the Gospel. Along with exposition of each section of the text, he draws out principles and applications about the nature of true faith, the cost of discipleship, and how we should receive God’s Word today. Above all, English writes as one who has a passion to help others appreciate Mark’s portrait of Jesus–the Son of Man and Son of God. As with all volumes in the Bible Speaks Today series, this book is characterized by three goals: to expound the biblical text with accuracy, to relate biblical teaching to contemporary life, and to be readable. This new edition includes updated language and current NIV Scripture quotations throughout, as well as a seven-session study guide.

  • Message Of Matthew (Revised)

    $30.00

    Matthew’s Gospel is the first–and perhaps the most important–single document of the New Testament.

    In it you will find the fullest and most systematic account of the birth, life, teaching, death, and resurrection of the founder of Christianity, Jesus the Messiah. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Michael Green shows how this very Jewish Gospel portrays the power and purpose of Jesus’ life and work, which was to bring light to all nations. Matthew records Jesus as Messiah, Son of God, Son of David, Son of Man, and supremely as God returning to Jerusalem as judge and redeemer. The consequences of this steady focus are as relevant now as then. Now more than ever we need to hear Matthew’s emphasis on the unity of God’s revelation old and new, its teaching on the life of discipleship, its exploration of the meaning of the kingdom of heaven, and its insights into the people of the Messiah, the end of the world, and the universality of the Good News. Green offers introductory material on the author of Matthew, the readers to whom the Gospel was originally written, the popularity of the Gospel, and its structure and themes. He then provides a passage-by-passage exposition of Matthew, paying attention to the application of the text as well as its interpretation. A study guide follows the exposition and will help you to further ponder and practice what this Gospel teaches you about Jesus and your place in the kingdom of Heaven. This new edition includes updated language and current NIV Scripture quotations throughout.

  • Psalms 1-50

    $59.99

    The Spirit of God exists before and beyond our understanding or experience. He is a reality beyond full human comprehension; He cannot be limited or shaped by human experience. That is why this study sets out to explore the wonderful mystery of the Spirit on the basis of God’s own Word and not on the basis of human experience.

    The church faces new challenges in every era. When Led by the Spirit: How Charismatic Is New Testament Christianity? was published in 1976, the Charismatic Movement was having a broad impact in denominations in North America, Europe, and Australia. Pfitzner’s careful exegetical study was written with this phenomenon in view. This reprinted classic book on the Spirit exists to assist the churches around the world in dealing with this challenge and in formulating a confessional Lutheran response.

Each volume has an exegetical author and a homiletic author who partner together to provide sound insight and guidance for effective proclamation. Just as in biblical times a kerux was a herald who proclaimed the official announcement of the king, so the forty-five volumes in this series will enable the preacher or teacher to accurately, authoritatively, and dynamically communicate the message of the divine King. In the book of Philippians, Paul is writing from prison to a church he loves. Even though he faces suffering and persecution, he writes about whole, joyous living. In every congregation and audience, there will be people all along the spectrum of joy and suffering. This commentary provides the resources to understand and teach the main emphases from Paul’s letter for the situations and needs of hearers today.

    $37.99

    Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. With careful discourse analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, the authors trace the flow of argument in each Old Testament book, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.

    Each volume offers a set of distinctive features, including: the main idea of the passage, its literary context, the author’s original translation and exegetical outline with Hebrew layout, its structure and literary form, an explanation of the text, and its canonical and practical significance. The diagram of each passage enables readers to grasp quickly and accurately the main idea of the text, its development, and supporting ideas; and allows them to understand how the commentator arrived at this depiction and interpretation of the passage. The commentary places a special emphasis on identifying and discussing the main thrust of each passage and showing how it contributes to the development of the whole composition. Readers will find help in drawing out the meaning of the Hebrew for interpretation. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Hebrew, all who strive to understand the Old Testament and better convey its meaning will find these books beneficial. Each unit concludes with a discussion of the canonical and practical significance of the passage, synthesizing its theology and message for readers today. There are many exegetical commentaries, but none accomplish what this series has achieved.
