  • Joel Obadiah Micah

    $34.99

    Although each is quite different, the books of Joel, Obadiah, and Micah are all survival literature. All three address the community that survived the crushing Babylonian destruction of Judah in 586 BCE. And all three seek to help this community cope by giving voice to its disorientation, trauma, anxiety, and rage. Each book insists that God will wrestle a positive future out of catastrophe, granting both physical and spiritual renewal. No matter how dire the circumstances, Israel can trust in the gracious God who will never abandon the faith community.

    In this thirty-fifth volume in the Believers Church Bible Commentary series, Old Testament scholar Daniel Epp-Tiessen explores the diverse, yet related content of these three prophetic books, always paying attention to how they might speak words of grace and healing into the disorientation, exile, and challenges of our own time. He also confronts the theologically problematic features of these books, especially their conviction that the salvation of God’s people requires that God obliterate their enemies. This volume explores how we might read Joel, Obadiah, and Micah in light of the larger biblical story of God’s saving purposes that reach their fulfillment in Jesus Christ.

  • 1 And 2 Kings

    $32.99

    Kerux Commentaries enables pastors and teachers to understand and effectively present the main message in a biblical text

    Each Kerux volume enhances the reader’s ability to deliver a message that is biblical, cohesive, and dynamic.

    Here Schreiner and Compson discuss reading and teaching from Old Testament historical books, including how Old Testament history relates to drastically different communities. In the case of 1 and 2 Kings, the historical players in Israel’s divided monarchy are distinct from the Babylonian exiles for whom the text was compiled and even further removed from present-day readers. The biblical author of 1 and 2 Kings clearly teaches that human choice and divine sovereignty are not in conflict, nor do either absolve individual actors of the consequences they must face for their choices and actions.

    1 and 2 Kings present an overarching view of Judah and Israel as kingdoms both in their glory and their degradation. By examining these books and presenting thorough exegesis within preachable units of text, Schreiner and Compson guide preachers and teachers in articulating biblical–and therefore eminently meaningful–applications for Christians.

  • Romans : A Concise Guide To The Greatest Letter Ever Written

    $29.99

    A Concise, Verse-by-Verse Commentary on the Book of Romans, Perfect for Individual or Group Study

    Martin Luther called the book of Romans the “chief part of the New Testament” and “the purest gospel.” The apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans has had arguably the largest influence on believers throughout church history. Paul systematically and formally articulates the gospel of Jesus Christ-the righteousness God gives to sinful humans through faith.

    Scholar and author Andrew David Naselli traces Paul’s argument for the gospel throughout this concise and accessible guide to the book of Romans. Designed to be read alongside the epistle itself, Naselli provides accessible, standalone commentary unpacking the text verse by verse. This volume dives into the key themes of righteousness, peace, and God’s promises, accompanied by reflection questions on interpretation and application-perfect for individual or group study.

    *For New Believers and Seasoned Saints: Ideal for thoughtful laypeople, pastors, and teachers wanting to learn more about God’s word

    *Perfect for Group or Individual Study: Includes interpretation and application questions at the end of the book

    *Accessible: Straightforward and clear writing

  • United To Christ Walking In The Spirit

    $19.99

    Join New Testament Scholar Benjamin Merkle as He Explores the Major Themes of the Book of Ephesians

    Paul wrote Ephesians as instruction and encouragement for the church in Ephesus, and it has continued to influence the church for centuries. This New Testament book specifically focuses on the believer’s union with Christ and our inability to stand before God without the work of Jesus Christ and the Spirit, both of which are still essential today.

    In this addition to the New Testament Theology series, scholar Benjamin Merkle offers an accessible summary of the theology of Ephesians that highlights God’s work in salvation and how Christians should respond. Each chapter focuses on a key theological theme-the plan of God, union with Christ, walking according to the Spirit, unity of the church, and spiritual warfare in the present age-and why it is relevant for the church today.

    *Part of the New Testament Theology Series: Other volumes include The Joy of Hearing: A Theology of the Book of Revelation and The Mission of the Triune God: A Theology of Acts

    *Ideal for Anyone Wanting to Study the Bible More Deeply: Perfect for pastors, seminarians, college students, and laypeople

  • Colossians And Philemon

    $25.00

    In the letter to the Colossians, Paul points us to the sufficiency of Christ, urging readers to continue to trust in him. Because Christ is supreme over all, our hope is secure in him. Colossians also shows how the new life that believers have in Jesus is to reflect his character in everyday relationships.

    Then in the letter to Philemon, we see the difference the gospel makes in the delicate context of Onesimus’s departure from Philemon.

    In this Tyndale Commentary, Alan Thompson shows how both Colossians and Philemon unpack and apply the beauty of the gospel of God’s grace and Christ’s supremacy.

    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 New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • Upside Down Apocalypse

    $29.99

    A peacemaker’s guide to the book of Revelation

    The book of Revelation–which deals on a cosmic scale with good and evil, politics and empire, community and eternity–has intrigued and frustrated readers since it was written. How do we make sense of John’s prophetic vision of cosmic war in light the nonviolence Jesus embodies in the gospels? What does it mean to tell us about Jesus, our world, and the future of all things? As End Times conspiracy theories surge, it’s more important than ever that we read the final book of the Bible without distorting the true message of Jesus.
    ?
    In Upside-Down Apocalypse, author Jeremy Duncan draws on biblical scholarship and nonviolent theology to guide readers through the book of Revelation, understanding the vision of John in the light of the Jesus we know through the Gospels–the full revelation of the Divine. Along the way, readers will discover what the writer imagines as he weaves this profound revelation of non-violent triumph and see with fresh eyes how the Prince of Peace turns violence on its head once and for all.

  • Victory According To Mark

    $16.95

    Mark’s Gospel is sometimes assumed to be the least interesting or helpful gospel because it is the shortest and speaks in a plain and direct style. Mark Horne helps us better appreciate this gospel’s goals by highlighting features not immediately apparent to the modern eye.

    Horne uses its Old Testament and first-century context to point out the typological roles that Jesus, John, and the disciples fulfill as the new leaders of their nation, a period when the old Israel was both restored and redefined. He shows the gospel’s intricate structures of miracle cycles and other events that bring out the major themes of calling and restoration, all playing into the kingship and triumph of Christ.

    This devotional-style commentary enables the reader to see through the gospel of Mark’s humble exterior into the riches that lie beneath.

  • Message Of Esther

    $20.00

    The book of Esther tells the dramatic story of how the destruction of the Jews was averted through the bravery of Esther, the wisdom of Mordecai, and the unity of the Jewish people. Yet Esther is a rather strange book to find in the Bible. Not only is it set entirely outside of the Promised Land, it also shows no interest in that land. More than that, Esther is the only book in the Bible that definitely does not mention God, and it avoids any obviously religious language.

    Nevertheless, Esther does have a developed theology. In this BST volume, David Firth explores this paradoxically important book and its implications for our own context, where the reality of God’s presence is experienced against a backdrop of God’s relative anonymity and seeming absence. Using brilliant satire and subtle scriptural allusions, the book of Esther offers us a model for dealing with a world where Christians are frequently a minority voice. It calls us to courageously engage society and be at the forefront of standing for justice, all while trusting in the God who is always at work.

    Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Esther offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text. This edition features lightly updated language and a new interior design.

  • Message Of Nehemiah

    $25.00

    The book of Nehemiah is about starting over again. Nehemiah, one of Israel’s great leaders, tells firsthand the powerful story of rebuilding ancient Jerusalem’s walls after the exile. In the face of great odds, this rebuilding represented the people’s renewal of faith, their overcoming of national shame, and the reformation of their conduct.

    In this volume, Raymond Brown vividly sketches Nehemiah’s historical and social setting and demonstrates the book’s striking relevance for today. He explores the dominant themes of Nehemiah’s doctrine of God, passion for Scripture, experience of prayer, and example of leadership. In describing Nehemiah the man, Brown concludes, He must surely be regarded as one of the most inventive and resilient personalities in the rich tapestry of Old Testament biography.

    Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Nehemiah offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text.

  • Message Of Ezra And Haggai

    $20.00

    Few sermons or Bible studies focus on Ezra or Haggai, two brief Old Testament books named for relatively unknown figures. But the message of both of these books–their emphasis on building for God, obedience to his Word, and openness to his Spirit–is one that needs to be heard clearly today. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Robert Fyall’s pairing of Ezra with Haggai enhances our appreciation of each. The background to the books is the exile of Judah to Babylon and the return from exile following the edict of Cyrus. Ezra narrates the history of the period, while Haggai records a prophet’s exhortation to the people who had ceased building the temple because of external opposition and internal failure of nerve. Throughout these chapters we see how the greater purposes of God provide encouragement to God’s people in dispiriting times. Fyall highlights parallels between the challenges Israel faced and those of today’s church, demonstrating the relevance of the books of Ezra and Haggai for God’s people in all times. With passage-by-passage exposition of the biblical text, this resource will be helpful for pastors, teachers, and anyone who wants to dive deeper into these seldom-discussed Old Testament books. This revised edition of a classic volume features lightly updated language and Scripture quotations with a new interior design.

  • Message Of Chronicles

    $25.00

    Michael Wilcock sees Chronicles first and foremost as a sermon. Its object: to foster a right relationship between God and his people.

    The Chronicler finds in the records of Israel the great overall pattern of God’s hand in history. The Lord’s constant mercy, love, and faithfulness shine through. With great perception, the Chronicler first selects and then proclaims this vibrant pattern, highlighted in the living events of the nation’s history. Once we grasp its purpose, the book comes alive. It can be seen as nothing less than a final and momentous look back over the entire Old Testament. In this commentary Wilcock shows how the various characters appearing in Chronicles make vivid the truths by which the Lord’s people in every generation are to live. Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Chronicles offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text. This beautifully redesigned edition has also been sensitively updated with more current references and the NRSV Bible text.

  • Message Of Kings

    $30.00

    At the beginning of 1 Kings, Solomon’s reign brought peace, prosperity, dynamic international trade, and a magnificent center of worship. By the end of 2 Kings, the people faced a complete reversal: they and their king were in exile, and Jerusalem and the temple lay in ruins.

    How can this story, told by the very people who suffered the defeat, be of value today? In this Bible Speaks Today volume, John Olley shows how the two books of Kings retell the past as preached history, addressing the exilic situation of the original readers. Within the account of paths leading to short-term success but ultimate failure, there are pointers of hope, of God’s continuing purposes and promises, and of the people’s response. In rich and often surprising ways, the narrative in Kings is part of the history that has shaped the faith of Christian believers. Everyday life, along with the turmoil of national and global events, is the arena in which God’s people are called to worship, trust, and obey him. The books of 1 and 2 Kings continue to throw light on these issues for readers in every generation. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text.

  • Message Of Samuel

    $25.00

    In the books of 1 and 2 Samuel, we witness the transition of Israel from tribal confederacy to established monarchy. And, as Mary Evans shows in this passage-by-passage commentary, during such a transition questions of identity and power are unavoidable.

    In the aftermath of the decline of the judges, priests abuse their priestly privileges; Israelites covet the centralized authority of their ungodly neighbors; and a throne is won, forsaken, redeemed, lost, and found again. Throughout this era we see, hidden behind the faults and failings of Israel’s best and brightest, the faithfulness of a God who looks on the heart and directs the path of every king and kingdom. Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Samuel offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text.

  • Straight To The Heart Of Daniel And Esther

    $14.95

    When the Jews were carried off into exile in Babylon, most people assumed that it was the end of the story. In reality, God was just getting started.

    As senior figures in the Babylonian and Persian Empires, Daniel and Esther would discover that there is no foreign ground for God. Their faithful obedience would, in fact, lead their oppressive captors to faith in the God of Israel.

    God inspired the Bible for a reason. He wants you read it and let it change your life. If you are willing to take this challenge seriously, then you will love Phil Moore’s devotional commentaries. Their bite-sized chapters are punchy and relevant, yet crammed with fascinating scholarship. Welcome to a new way of reading the Bible. Welcome to the Straight to the Heart series.

  • Ezra And Nehemiah

    $54.99

    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. 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.

    Commentary on each passage follows a clear structure to help readers grasp the flow and meaning of the text:

    *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.

  • Books Of Ezra And Nehemiah

    $52.00

    The books of Ezra and Nehemiah represent a significant turning point in biblical history. They tell the story not only of the temple in Jerusalem being rebuilt but also of God resurrecting his people from the death of exile. Hannah Harrington thus begins her commentary with an evocative description of these books as “the story of a new Israel forged out of the old” and “the text of a people clinging to their genealogical past and attempting to preserve their heritage while walking forward into uncharted territory.”

    Throughout this commentary, Harrington combines analytical research on the language and culture behind the books of Ezra and Nehemiah with challenging thoughts for the Christian church today, bringing to bear a unique perspective on these books not as the end of Old Testament history but as some of the earliest Jewish books written during the Second Temple period. Accordingly, Harrington incorporates a wealth of information from other Jewish literature from this time period to freshly illuminate many of the topics and issues at hand while focusing on the interpretation and use of these books for Christian life today.

  • Revelation Through Old Testament Eyes

    $29.99

    The book of Revelation simply cannot be understood apart from the Old Testament

    Through Old Testament Eyes is a new kind of commentary series that illuminates the Old Testament backgrounds, allusions, patterns, and references saturating the New Testament. The structure and content of the Old Testament were second nature to the New Testament authors and their audiences, but today’s readers have no reference point for understanding their intricate role in the New Testament. Bible teachers, preachers, and students committed to understanding Scripture will gain insight through these rich Old Testament connections, which clarify puzzling passages and explain others in fresh ways.

    The images of Revelation–like a seven-sealed scroll, four horsemen bringing destruction and death, locusts from the Abyss, and more–often seem hopelessly complex to today’s readers and have led to egregious misunderstanding and misinterpretations. But as Tremper Longman demonstrates in Revelation Through Old Testament Eyes, this confusion arises from unfamiliarity with symbolism that Revelation’s first readers readily comprehended. In large part, the imagery arises from first-century AD Greco-Roman culture and from the Old Testament, with its own background in ancient Near Eastern literature. Through its unmistakable Old Testament connections, Revelation exhorts readers to persevere in the present and place their hope in God for the future.

    Avoiding overly technical discussions and interpretive debates to concentrate on Old Testament influences, Revelation Through Old Testament Eyes combines rigorous, focused New Testament scholarship with deep respect for the entire biblical text.

  • Economics Of The Parables

    $29.99

    Timeless and moral economic wisdom for life’s choices and changes derived from the parables of the New Testament by famed free market advocate and Catholic priest Robert Sirico.

    Libraries are filled with books on the parables of Christ, and rightly so. In the words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, “While civilizations have come and gone, these stories continue to teach us anew with their freshness and their humanity.” Two millennia later, the New Testament parables remain ubiquitous, and yet, few have stopped to glean from one of Christ’s most prevalent analogies: money.

    In The Economics of the Parables, Rev. Robert Sirico pulls back the veil of modernity to reveal the timeless economic wisdom of the parables. Twelve central stories–including “The Laborers in the Vineyard,” “The Rich Fool,” “The Five Talents,” and “The Faithful Steward”–serve as his guide, revealing practical lessons in caring for the poor, stewarding wealth, distributing inheritances, navigating income disparities, and resolving family tensions.

    As contemporary as any business manual and sure to outlast them, The Economics of the Parables equips any economically informed reader to uncover the enduring financial truths of the parables in a reasonable, sensible, and life-empowering manner.

  • Exalting Jesus In Job

Akin, and Tony Merida, this commentary series, to include 47 volumes when complete, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books.

    Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition presented as sermons and divided into chapters that conclude with a “Reflect & Discuss” section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation. It’s not academic but rather presents an easy reading, practical, and friendly commentary.

  • Matthew : A Commentary

    $80.00

    In this new critical commentary for the New Testament Library series, R. Alan Culpepper sets the Gospel of Matthew in the context of the competing Jewish and early Christian voices of the first century, bringing greater clarity to Matthew’s own proclamation of the gospel and inviting readers to give up perhaps long-held assumptions about the book.

    In Culpepper’s treatment, Matthew emerges as a Gospel for a Jewish community, distinguishing itself from the Pharisees on one side and other early Christian traditions and leaders, especially Paul and his followers, on the other side. In this framework, Matthew calls his community to faithful observance of the law, a law-observant mission to both Jews and Gentiles, and repentance and the practice of forgiving in preparation for the coming judgment. Accordingly, Matthew takes readers back to an early period, before the separation of Jewish Christians from the synagogues. By taking seriously Matthew’s Jewishness, this volume also enables readers to hear the historical Jesus more clearly. Excursuses on Matthew’s social setting include Jesus as healer, Sabbath observance, Roman taxation, the Pharisees, the tithes, ancient weddings, and the Sanhedrin, as well as many shorter units on Second Temple Judaism, synagogues, and first-century Galilean society.

    The New Testament Library series offers authoritative commentary on every book and major aspect of the New Testament, providing fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, careful attention to their literary design, and a theologically perceptive exposition of the biblical text. The contributors are scholars of international standing. The editorial board consists of C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary; John T. Carroll, Union Presbyterian Seminary; and Susan E. Hylen, Candler School of Theology, Emory University.

  • Philippians : An Introduction And Commentary

    $25.00

    The letter to the Philippians illuminates a warm relationship between the apostle Paul and the Philippian believers.

    Despite difficult situations being experienced on both sides, Paul finds ample reason to celebrate what God in Christ has done and is doing in the believers’ lives. Jeannine K. Brown’s commentary on Philippians explores the themes of this epistle and how its message is still relevant to Christians in the twenty-first century. Brown shows how motifs of joy, contentment, and unity abound as Paul reminds the Philippians of the supreme value of knowing Jesus the Messiah, and she highlights their significance for shaping the contemporary church toward living more deeply in its identity in Christ. This Tyndale New Testament commentary examines the text section-by-section–exploring the context in which it was written, providing thoughtful commentary on the letter to the Philippians, and then unpacking its theology. It will leave you with a thorough understanding of the content and structure of Paul’s writing, as well as its meaning and continued relevance. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries are ideal resources for students and teachers of theology, as well as for preachers and individual Christians looking to delve deeper into the riches of Scripture. Insightful and comprehensive, Jeannine K. Brown’s commentary on Philippians is a brilliant introduction that will give you a renewed appreciation for this rich Pauline epistle and a greater knowledge of why it is important to the Christian faith.

  • Faith That Endures

    While the details of our lives may differ from those of the people to whom the book of Hebrews was written, there are some things that never change. We live in a hostile, unredeemed world, in an unredeemed body, and have an unredeemed nature within us. Because we belong to Christ, we are targets of the Enemy’s attack. . . .

    The help the author of Hebrews gave to those in circumstances similar to ours will provide the help we need to live victoriously by faith. His exhortations to patiently endure and his warnings against moving backward in our spiritual experience are still valid. They show us the importance of walking by faith.

  • Suffering Wisely And Well

    $16.99

    Why Suffering Exists: God’s Purpose for Pain in the Life of Job and throughout Scripture

    Why does God allow suffering? The pain of suffering can be overwhelmingly mysterious, but the Bible does provide answers. Throughout Scripture, God allows trials in order to accomplish specific purposes in the lives of his people. When faced with suffering they experience spiritual growth; repentance from sin; or, as in the Old Testament story of Job, the chance to demonstrate devotion to God in the face of inexplicable agony.

    In Suffering Wisely and Well, Eric Ortlund explores different types of trials throughout Scripture, revealing the spiritual purpose for each and reassuring readers with God’s promise of restoration. The majority of the book focuses on Job, one of the most well-known yet misunderstood stories of suffering. Ortlund thoughtfully analyzes the text chapter by chapter, including the doubt of Job’s friends, God’s response to Job’s questions, and the meaning behind important imagery including references to Leviathan and Behemoth. Suffering Wisely and Well shows readers how to deepen their relationship with God during painful experiences in their own lives and how to comfort others who are hurting.

With vivid insight, this Bible Speaks Today commentary illuminates how the meaning of Genesis is still resonant today–helping us understand both the greatness and the tragic flaw inherent in human beings.

  • Mission Of The Triune God

    $23.99

    Understanding Luke’s Narrative in the Book of Acts

    The book of Acts is unlike any other in Scripture; it has no rival in terms of a book spanning so many different lands. Written by a Gentile, it recounts the birth of the church age and the lives of early Christians that serve as lasting examples for the church today. When believers see how these events worked together to fulfill God’s promises, they gain a better understanding of the Trinitarian heart of Acts.

    In The Mission of the Triune God, author Patrick Schreiner argues that Luke’s theology stems from the order of his narrative. He shows how the major themes in Acts, including the formation of the church, salvation offered to all flesh, and the prolific spread of the gospel, connect. Through Schreiner’s clear presentation and helpful graphics, readers follow the early church as it grows “all under the plan of God, centered on King Jesus, and empowered by the Spirit.”

  • 12 Prophets: Volume 1

    $44.95

    There is generally no common material that binds together the works of the individual prophets that comprise the Twelve, but through Sweeney’s commentary they stand together as a single, clearly defined book among the other prophetic books of the Bible.The Book of the Twelve Prophets is a multifaceted literary composition that functions simultaneously in all Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible as a single prophetic book and as a collection of twelve individual prophetic books. Each of the twelve individual books – Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi – begins with its own narrative introduction that identifies the prophet and provides details concerning the historical setting and literary characteristics. In this manner each book is clearly distinguished from the others within the overall framework of the Twelve.By employing a combination of literary methodologies, such as reader response criticism, canonical criticism, and structural form criticism, Sweeney establishes the literary structure of the Book of the Twelve as a whole, and of each book with their respective ideological or theological perspectives.

    An introductory chapter orients readers to questions posed by reading the Book of the Twelve as a coherent piece of literature and to a literary overview of the Twelve. Sweeney then treats each of the twelve individual prophetic books in the order of the Masoretic canon, providing a discussion of each one’s structure, theme, and outlook. This is followed by a detailed literary discussion of the textual units that comprise the book.

    $44.95

    The narratives of Solomon and Jeroboam, of Elijah and Ahab, have fascinated readers for millennia. Even apart from questions of historical authenticity, they are gripping stories of richly drawn characters caught up in the complex tale of God’s dealings with Israel. This study explores the narrative world created by 1 Kings’ ancient Israelite author: the people who inhabit it, the lives they live, the deeds they do, and the face of God who is revealed in their stories.

    An introduction explains the significance of 1 Kings as a historical narrative. Originally intended as a literal history, after centuries of writing and rewriting it is now as much a literary work as a historical one: The views of those who formed it can be discerned and studied. Walsh also explains how the rich traditions of Hebrew prose narrative and the Hebrew language itself affect our reading of 1 Kings.

  • Commentary On The New Testament From The Talmud And Midrash Volume 3

    $64.99

    Hermann L. Strack and Paul Billerbeck’s Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Midrash, originally published between 1922 and 1928, is an important reference work for understanding the New Testament in light of contemporary Jewish thought.

    The commentary walks through each New Testament book verse by verse, referencing passages from the Midrash and the Talmud and showing their relevance for situating the Bible in its cultural background. While much research has been done on Second Temple Judaism since this work, nothing has come close to replacing it. This is truly an essential resource for academics, students, and pastors.Volume 3 contains an English translation of the commentary on Romans through Revelation.

  • 1 And 2 Kings

    $34.99

    Violence on the streets. Military expansion. Consumerism. Policies exploiting people and natural resources. Harassment and abuse: 1 & 2 Kings could hardly be more relevant. In the thirty-fourth volume of the Believers Church Bible Commentary series, Old Testament scholar Lynn Jost claims 1 & 2 Kings were written to form a community that would embrace the Ten Commandments and the Great Shema and would champion righteousness and compassion. Jost traces the characteristics of royal justice, with its systems of excess and indulgence, as well as the court intrigue, succession politics, interfamily rivalries, and prophetic judgment that mark the books. Through it all, Israel remains in a covenant relationship with a delivering God. Through it all, God calls the leaders and the people to practice justice, protect shalom, and live righteously. In vivid and accessible prose, Jost invites pastors, scholars, and lay readers to read 1 & 2 Kings as books of promise–ones that gesture toward a faithful God who rescues, judges, commands, and provides.

  • Joy Of Hearing

    $19.99

    Join New Testament scholar Thomas Schreiner as he explores the meaning and purpose of the book of Revelation.

    The book of Revelation can feel more intimidating to read than other books of the Bible. It invites readers into a world that seems confusing and sometimes even strange: golden lampstands, seven seals, a dragon, and a rider on a white horse. But at its core, Revelation is a message of hope written to Christians facing hardship, and it’s worth the effort to read it and understand it.

    In this first volume in the New Testament Theology series, trusted scholar Thomas Schreiner walks step-by-step through the book of Revelation, considering its many themes-the opposition believers face from the world; the need for perseverance; God as sovereign Creator, Judge, and Savior-as well as its symbolic imagery and historical context. The Joy of Hearing brings clarity to the content and message of Revelation and explores its relevance for the church today.

    $64.99

  • Romans : An Introduction And Commentary

    $30.00

    Romans has been described as the theological epistle par excellence.

    The apostle Paul emphasizes that salvation is by God’s grace alone and that freedom, hope, and the gift of righteousness are secured through Christ’s death and resurrection, with the promise of a new and glorious destiny. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, believers can discern and do the will of God. God’s purpose is to bring Jews and Gentiles together so that they may glorify him with one voice. In this Tyndale Commentary, David Garland offers clear guidance along the rewarding, though sometimes difficult, paths of this great letter. 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 New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • 12 Prophets Volume 2

    $49.95

    There is generally no common material that binds together the works of the individual prophets that comprise the Twelve, but through Sweeney’s commentary they stand together as a single, clearly defined book among the other prophetic books of the Bible.

    The Book of the Twelve Prophets is a multifaceted literary composition that functions simultaneously in all Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible as a single prophetic book and as a collection of twelve individual prophetic books. Each of the twelve individual books – Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi – begins with its own narrative introduction that identifies the prophet and provides details concerning the historical setting and literary characteristics. In this manner each book is clearly distinguished from the others within the overall framework of the Twelve.

    By employing a combination of literary methodologies, such as reader response criticism, canonical criticism, and structural form criticism, Sweeney establishes the literary structure of the Book of the Twelve as a whole, and of each book with their respective ideological or theological perspectives. An introductory chapter orients readers to questions posed by reading the Book of the Twelve as a coherent piece of literature and to a literary overview of the Twelve. Sweeney then treats each of the twelve individual prophetic books in the order of the Masoretic canon, providing a discussion of each one’s structure, theme, and outlook. This is followed by a detailed literary discussion of the textual units that comprise the book.

  • Joshua : Studies In Hebrew Narrative And Poetry

    $39.95

    What does Joshua hold to be the essential marks of Israelite identity? What distinguishes “Israel” from all other peoples? In tracking these themes, L. Daniel Hawk reveals in Joshua a profound struggle to define the people of the God of Israel.

    Hawk shows that the themes surrounding Joshua express fundamental markers of national identity: religious practice (obedience to the commandments of Moses), ethnic separation (extermination of the peoples of Canaan), and possession of land (“the land that YHWH gives”). Through the medium of narrative, Joshua tests each of these markers and demonstrates that none clearly characterize the people of God. Instead, Joshua presents Israel as a nation fundamentally constituted by choosing: YHWH’s choosing of Israel and Israel’s choosing of YHWH.

    In the present day in which ideologies of religion, race, and territorial possession have given rise to countless expressions of violence, Hawk expresses the particular value of reading Joshua. The Joshua story holds a mirror up to all who regard themselves as the people of God. The reflection is both repelling and inspiring but until we confront it, what it truly means to be the chosen people of God will remain elusive.

    Chapters are “Rights of Passage (1:1-18),” “Who’s Who in the Promised Land? (2:1-12:24),” “Strangers in the Night (2:1-24),” “Changing State (3:1-4:24),” “First Things First (5:1-15),” “Going in Circles (6:1-27),” “Ai Spy (7:1-8:35),” “Foiled Again (9:1-10:27),” “Conquering Canaanites (10:28-12:24),” “Organizing Israel (13:1-21:45),” “Altar Egos (22:1-34),” “Unfinished Business (23:1-18),” and “Decisions, Decisions (24:1-33).” Includes twelve charts that lay out structural features of the book.

  • Monogram Of The Beast

    $19.99

    This book solves the great mystery regarding the mark of the Beast. The Hammer and Sickle is the mark, and is a monogram of the number 616 in Hebrew letters of the alphabet (tav, resh, tet, and zayin) and in Greek letters of the alphabet (chi, iota, digamma/waw), in obverse and reverse respectively. .

    The book is an interpretation of Daniel and Revelation, focusing in particular upon the mark of the Beast and its solution, comparable in some ways to a commentary on these two books. .

    The number of the Beast is 616, not 666.

    The mark (a hammer and sickle) represents the Workers’ and Peasants’ Government (of the Russian Soviet Republic).

    The book interprets Islam as Babylon the Great, and modern Israel as the Second Beast.

    There are 36 chapters, subdivided into 11 parts:

    Part One: The Beast: the Workers’ and Peasants’ Government of the Russian Soviet Republic

    Part Two: The Name of the Beast: the Workers’ and Peasants’ Government

    Part Three: The Hammer and Sickle: the Number of the Name of the Beast

    Part Four: Soviet Long-range Deception Strategy

    Part Five: Marxism and Satanism

    Part Six: Marxist Perversion of Christianity

    Part Seven: Contemporary War on Christianity in West

  • Ezra And Nehemiah

    $29.95

    Ezra-Nehemiah has been neglected in biblical studies, but it is important as one of the few windows into the Persian period of Israel’s history, the setting for so much of the final shape of the Hebrew Bible. To know this period is to know what influenced these redactors. In Ezra and Nehemiah Gordon Davies provides that knowledge using rhetorical criticism, a methodology that reveals the full range and progress of the book’s ideas without hiding its rough seams and untidy edges.

    The purpose of rhetorical criticism is to explain not the source but the power of the text as a unitary message. This approach does not look at plot development, characterization, or other elements whose roughness makes Ezra-Nehemiah frustrating to read. Instead, it examines the three parts of the relationship – the strategies, the situations, and the ffects – between the speaker and the audience. Rhetorical criticism’s scrutiny of the audience in context favors the search for the ideas and structures that are indigenous to the culture of the text.

    Rhetorical criticism is interested in figures of speech as means of persuasion. Therefore, to apply it to Ezra-Nehemiah, Davies concentrates on the public discourse – the orations, letters, and prayers – throughout its text. In each chapter he follows a procedure that: (1) where it is unclear, identifies the rhetorical unit in which the discourse is set; (2) identifies the audiences of the discourse and the rhetorical situation; (3) studies the arrangement of the material; (4) studies the effect on the various audiences; (5) reviews the passage as a whole and judges its success. In the conclusion, Davies explains that Ezra-Nehemiah makes theological sense on its own terms, by forming a single work in which a range of ideas is argued.

    Biblical scholars as well as those interested in literary criticism, communication studies, rhetorical studies, ecclesiology, and homiletics will find Ezra and Nehemiah enlightening.

  • Isaiah : An Introduction And Commentary

    $30.00

    No other prophetic book rivals Isaiah’s clear message, powerful imagery, and confident hope in God’s future deliverance.

    The prophet’s vision of God’s glory and holiness in chapter 6 permeates the whole book, and he never tires of correcting misplaced faith in power or false gods. In this thorough and accessible Tyndale commentary, Paul Wegner explores the background, structure, and themes of Isaiah. While many scholars divide the book with a gap of about 150 years between chapters 39 and 40, Wegner highlights the unified message of the book, including its three introductions (Is 1:1; 2:1; 13:1) paired with its three refrains (Is 48:22; 57:21; 66:24). Each part illuminates God’s glorious plan for his people. 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.

  • Joshua

    $49.99

    Joshua is not merely a story of conquest but also a treasure trove of theology.David G. Firth interprets the book of Joshua with a sensitivity to its place as Christian Scripture. Joshua is marginalized in many churches, often because its message is misunderstood. Firth reveals that, rather than simply being a story of conquest, Joshua is concerned with matters of identity and faithfulness. Joshua exhorts God’s people to live out their calling in light of God’s promises. While Israelites like Achan fall short, others–often gentiles–show surprising faith in God. Firth also probes the book’s theological themes, such as the promised land, government, rest, and promise. The book of Joshua boldly challenges the complacent in faith to be a nation committed to God. The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) series locates each biblical book within redemptive history and illuminates its unique theological contributions. All EBTC volumes feature informed exegetical treatment of the biblical book and thorough discussion of its most important theological themes in relation to the canon–all in a style that is useful and accessible to students of Scripture.

  • 1 Corinthians : A Commentary In The Wesleyan Tradition

    $27.99

    What do you say to people who have accepted the gospel but have failed to apply it well? That is the dilemma Paul is facing as he writes 1 Corinthians.

  • Message Of 2 Timothy

    $20.00

    After teaching many times from the book of 2 Timothy, John Stott writes, “I have been impressed afresh by the timeliness for today of what the apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders.

    For our era too is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle summons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast.” In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, Stott explores the perennial lessons of Paul’s final epistle. We see Paul call the young leader Timothy to courageously persevere in the truth and in his calling, not yielding to the pressures of public opinion or the surrounding culture.

This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume includes updated language and Scripture quotations and a new interior design.

  • Homilies On The Gospel Of John 41-124 Study Edition

    $49.00

    Few ancient Christian authors attempted anything like a complete commentary on the Gospel of John, among them Origen, John Chrysostom and Augustine. Of these, Augustine’s must count as the greatest. Unlike Origen’s, it has come down to us in its entirety, and of the others that remain it is certainly the most theologically profound. John’s gospel allows Augustine to range broadly over themes that were his life’s work -the Trinity, the person of Christ, the nature of the Church and its sacraments, the fulfillment of the divine plan.

    The 124 homilies that constitute Augustine’s commentary, however, are masterpieces not only of theological profundity but also of pastoral engagement. In the question-and-answer style that he frequently employs, for example, one can sense Augustine’s real awareness of his congregation’s struggles with the gospel text. And the congregation’s response to Augustine, which he frequently alludes to, is an indication of the success of his dialogical preaching style.

    The Johannine literature drew out the best in Augustine. The Homilies on the Gospel of John are the indispensable complement to The Homilies on The First Epistle of John, published in this series, and they should be a part of any serious theological library.

    The book of Daniel presents a God who is there and is not silent.

    Joe M. Sprinkle connects Daniel with the biblical story. Debates rage around Daniel’s dating, historicity, and referents. With this focus on historical context, Daniel’s canonical context is often lost. While arguing for conservative dating and historicity, Sprinkle focuses on how Daniel is a fulcrum for many theological themes in both the OT and NT. Daniel says much about God’s nature, his relationship with history, the heavenly host, the Messiah, the coming kingdom, and the last things.
