  • 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.

    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

  • 40 Questions About Roman Catholicism

    $23.99

    Straightforward answers about Roman Catholicism for a Protestant audience

    The Roman Catholic faith is one of the world’s most widespread religious traditions, yet the unique aspects of Roman Catholicism elicit perennial questions from adherents and outsiders alike. Such questions tend to fall into three major categories: historical backgrounds, theological matters, and personal relationships. Using Catholic Church documents and the writings of Catholic scholars, Baptist systematic theologian Gregg Allison distills the teachings of Catholicism around forty common questions about Catholic foundations, beliefs, and practices. The accessible question-and-answer format guides readers to the issues that concern them, including:
    * Where do Roman Catholic and Protestant beliefs differ?
    * What happens during a Roman Catholic Mass?
    * How does Roman Catholicism understand the biblical teaching about Mary?
    * Who are the saints and what is their role?
    * How can my Roman Catholic loved ones and I talk about the gospel?

    40 Questions About Roman Catholicism explores theology and practice, doctrine and liturgy, sacraments and Mariology, contributions and scandals, and many other things, clarifying both real and perceived differences and similarities with other Christian traditions.

  • Discontinuity To Continuity

    $25.99

    What is the best framework for reading the Bible?

    The question of how to relate the Old and New Testaments is as old as the Bible itself. While most Protestants are unified on the foundations, there are major disagreements on particular issues. Who should be baptized? Is the Christian obligated to obey the Law of Moses? Does the church supplant Israel? Who are the proper recipients of God’s promises to Israel?

    In Discontinuity to Continuity, Benjamin Merkle brings light to the debates between dispensational and covenantal theological systems. Merkle identifies how Christians have attempted to relate the Testaments, placing viewpoints along a spectrum of discontinuity to continuity. Each system’s concerns are sympathetically summarized and critically evaluated.

    Through his careful exposition of these frameworks, Merkle helps the reader understand the key issues in the debate. Providing more light than heat, Merkle’s book will help all readers better appreciate other perspectives and articulate their own.
