  • Asking Better Questions Of The Bible

    $16.99

    Too often when we come to the Bible, we settle for easy answers. We move quickly toward the allure of resolution. But when we ask the questions the Bible is asking, we will do these things instead:

    *understand the Eastern perspective of words, numbers, and core principles like eternal life, truth, sin, and faith

    recognize the literary devices and the reclamation of stories used in the Torah

    read the historical books both as inspiration and as cautionary tales

    interpret the distinct genres in Wisdom Literature, such as psalms and proverbs

    *decipher the unique elements of prophetic literature

    *perceive the often tongue-in-cheek nature of the Gospel accounts

    *view the New Testament letters as inspired, authoritative interpretation of the story of God

  • Flood And Fury

    $24.00

    What do we do with a God who sanctions violence?

    Old Testament violence proves one of the most troubling topics in the Bible. Too often, the explanations for the brutality in Scripture fail to adequately illustrate why God would sanction such horrors on humanity. These unanswered questions leave readers frustrated and confused, leading some to even walk away from their faith.

    In Flood and Fury, Old Testament scholar Matthew Lynch approaches two of the most violent passages in the Old Testament – the Flood and the Canaanite conquest – and offers a way forward that doesn’t require softening or ignoring the most troubling aspects of these stories. While acknowledging the persistent challenge of violence in Scripture, Flood and Fury contends that reading with the grain of the text yields surprising insights into the goodness and the mercy of God. Through his exploration of themes related to violence including misogyny, racism, and nationalism, Lynch shows that these violent stories illuminate significant theological insights that we might miss with a surface reading.

    Flood and Fury challenges us to let go of the need to rescue the Old Testament from itself and listen afresh to its own critiques on violence.

  • Pauls Thorn In The Flesh

    $29.99

    Paul’s enigmatic “thorn in the flesh” in 2 Corinthians has baffled interpreters for centuries. Many offer suggestions as to the identity of Satan’s messenger; others despair that the puzzle is unsolvable. In Paul’s Thorn in the Flesh: New Clues for an Old Problem, Kenneth Berding reopens the case. He follows a trail of clues that includes ancient beliefs about curses, hints in Paul’s letters, similarities with Jesus’s suffering, and the attempts of the earliest Christian interpreters. Berding offers twenty criteria-some familiar, others neglected-that any proposals must explain. While the usual suspects fall short, Berding suggests a new solution-one that satisfies all the evidence and gives us a fuller view of Paul. Far from an abstract puzzle, Paul’s own suffering is relevant to Christians today, including Berding’s own health struggles.

  • Reading Hebrews In Context

    $21.99

    Study Hebrews in its Second Temple Context

    Following the proven model established in Reading Romans in Context, Reading Mark in Context, and Reading Revelation in Context, this book brings together a series of accessible essays that compare and contrast the theology and hermeneutical practices of the book of Hebrews with various early Jewish literature.

    Going beyond an introduction that merely surveys historical events and theological themes, this textbook examines individual passages in Second Temple Jewish literature in order to illuminate the ideas and emphases of Hebrews’ varied discourses. Following the rhetorical progression of Hebrews, each chapter in this textbook:

    1. pairs a major unit of Hebrews with one or more sections of a thematically related Jewish text
    2. introduces and explores the historical and theological nuances of the comparative text
    3. shows how the ideas in the comparative text illuminate those expressed in Hebrews

    In addition to the focused comparison provided in the essays, Reading Hebrews in Context offers other student-friendly features that help them engage broader discussions, including an introductory chapter that familiarizes students with the world and texts of Second Temple Judaism and a glossary of important terms. The end of each chapter contains a list of other thematically-relevant Second Temple Jewish texts recommended for further study and a focused bibliography pointing students to critical editions and higher-level discussions in scholarly literature they might use to undertake their own comparative studies.

  • Apostles And Prophets

    $36.99

    What Are Apostles and Prophets

    These ministry gifts did not pass away with the last of Jesus’ disciples. Christ gave them to the Church for all time, and they are still alive and well today.

    *How apostles and prophets equip you for priestly ministry
    *What is God’s real intention for a last-days Church?

  • Paul The Spirit And The People Of God

    $49.99

    This contemporary classic by renowned scholar Gordon Fee explores the Spirit’s significant role in Pauline life and thought.

    After Fee published his magisterial God’s Empowering Presence, he was asked to write a more accessible volume that would articulate Paul’s priorities for experiencing the life of the Spirit in the church. Fee’s bestselling introduction to Paul and the Spirit, Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God, went on to sell over 70,000 copies. This book by one of the greatest evangelical and Pentecostal New Testament interpreters of our time argues that the presence of the Spirit is, for Paul and for us, the crucial matter for the Christian life.

    This repackaged edition features an updated design and packaging, new study questions, and a foreword by Dean Pinter, who commends the book to a new generation of readers.

  • Messianic Prophecy Revealed

    $19.99

    FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION DECODED

    The Old Testament isn’t just a collection of traditions from one group of people–it’s about Jesus as the key to salvation.

    After reading this book, you will have no doubts that Jesus is the Messiah, and you will be able to read the Old Testament with the newfound revelation that God has been pointing to His Son as the Savior of the world for thousands of years.

    Many times, when inquisitive readers look to see how the New Testament authors applied the Old Testament to show that Jesus is the Messiah, they become confused. When the Gospel writers quote Old Testament scriptures and say, “This is how Jesus fulfilled it,” the passage quoted doesn’t appear to be a prophecy at all. This is because understanding Messianic prophecy is often more of an art than a science.

    Messianic prophecy is not simply the measurement of specific prophecies about the future that Jesus fulfilled. In the Hebrew tradition, prophecy is not one-dimensional; it is not simply foretelling the future. In reality, the whole of Scripture is prophetic, pointing us to Christ.

    In Messianic Prophecy Revealed, Rabbi Kirt A. Schneider takes readers through the Word of God, showing them how the New Testament writers took passages out of the Old Testament to prove that Jesus is indeed the Messiah. It’s a subject that sounds simple but is, in fact, more complex than many realize.

    This book will show followers of Jesus why they can have absolute confidence that Jesus is who He claimed to be–the Messiah.

  • Finding Phoebe : What New Testament Women Were Really Like

    $21.99

    Forget what you think you know about women in the early church.

    In this learned yet accessible book, Susan E. Hylen introduces first-century primary sources to illuminate readers’ understanding of New Testament women. Perfect for clergy, spiritual reading groups, and all curious minds, Finding Phoebe combines incisive scholarship and instructional sensibility to encourage readers to develop their own informed interpretations of Scripture.

    Contrary to popular conceptions of “biblical womanhood” as passive and silent, women often served as leaders and prophets in their communities. Women owned one-third of all property during the period, granting them access to civic power through patronage. Many women worked outside the home and were educated according to the needs of their professions. Through careful examination of “modesty” and “silence” in the Greco-Roman world, Hylen reveals the centrality of these virtues to both men and women practicing self-control in service of communal good.

    Hylen’s work will challenge readers to free their minds of modern preconceptions and consider New Testament women on their own terms. This practical book includes historical context, scriptural evidence, and questions for discussion.

  • Father And His Family (Audio CD)

    $29.99

    There are two great questions that we all must eventually ask:

    *Why were we born?
    *What must we do to inherit eternal life?

    Legendary Bible teacher E. W. Kenyon tackles these questions head-on as he explains why God created us and what He has done to ensure our place at His side in The Father and His Family: The Story of Our Redemption.

    Mankind was never created on a whim. Instead, we were destined to be the Father’s beloved children before the foundation of the world. When we fell, God created a way to bring us back to Himself.

    “The entire plan of redemption is a revelation of the heart hunger and loneliness of the great Father God,” Kenyon says. “Christianity is not a religion; it is a family, a Father and His children.”

    God gave Adam dominion and authority over the earth, which man squandered by questioning the Lord and disobeying him. In this manner, Adam turned over his rights to Satan.

    “When he turned that vast kingdom over into the hands of Satan, it was a legal transference,” Kenyon explains. “It was so legal that God was obliged to recognize its legality, and the only way that God could meet the issue was to send His beloved Son down out of heaven to suffer the penalty of Adam’s transgression.”

    Presenting profound truths simply yet eloquently, Kenyon covers the reason for creation, man’s treason, the dominion of death, man’s need for a mediator, the family of God, and related topics.

    Gain a greater understanding of God’s Word, His love for you, and your rights as His beloved child.

  • Man Who Left His Mark

    $15.95

    In this unusual book on the Gospel of Mark, the brilliant and prolific Peter Kreeft presents 252 contemporary questions that modern man asks about every aspect of the meaning of life, faith, love, suffering, friendship, death, eternity, God, Jesus and more.

    He then gives an answer to each question taken directly from Mark’s Gospel, which are always pointed and often suprising, and makes us ponder more deeply about the meaning of the Scripture passage in relation to our own lives. Kreeft says that Mark’s Gospel is “the quickest and ‘busiest’ of the four – the Gospel for Americans.” He describes the book as “a series of sudden shocks and surprises because that is how Jesus appeared to Mark and others who followed him – full of shocks and surprises.”

    Kreeft’s goal of this book is for us to allow Jesus to speak more directly to us, to answer our questions in a personal and profound way, so that we will learn more about ourselves, and about Him. And thus how to know, love and follow Him more closely in our lives.

  • Royal Priest : Psalm 110 In Biblical Theology

    $28.00

    Despite its importance in the New Testament and the priestly messianic promise identified by King David, relatively little has been written on Psalm 110 from a biblical-theological perspective.

    By considering David’s biblical warrant for bringing together priesthood and kingship in a single figure, Matthew Emadi shows how we are able to uncover the theological foundation on which Psalm 110 is built. He situates the psalm in Scripture’s storyline, showing that Melchizedek’s royal priesthood is tied to both creation and redemption.

  • Savoring Scripture : A Six-Step Guide To Studying The Bible

    $22.00

    Some books on how to read the Bible are academically informative, but their rationality can make God seem distant.

    Other books are spiritually vibrant but provide few tools that truly help God’s people read the Bible better. Readers need a guide that combines the academic with the spiritual–that integrates textual analysis with the illuminating and transformational work of the Holy Spirit.

    Drawing from his experience training students to study the Bible, Andrew Abernethy provides a holistic method that helps readers listen carefully to what God was saying to the original audience and what God is saying to us today. Using clear examples, he lays out six steps:

    *Posture
    *Flow
    *Context
    *Whole Bible
    *Savor God
    *Faithful response

    Chapters provide guidance on interpreting biblical genres, factoring in historical backgrounds, reading each passage in context, tracing the redemptive storyline of Scripture, and more. Then, building on a strong grasp of Scripture’s meaning, readers engage the traditional practice of lectio divina and consider how to respond faithfully to the text. The goal, Abernethy says, is to encounter God and to be shaped by the Word as we savor its richness.

    Filled with practical features such as illustrations, maps, timelines, and discussion questions, Savoring Scripture is a valuable guide for students and anyone who wants to study the Bible more effectively. God has given us a Bible that is for the hungry–for those willing both to depend on God for provision and to put in the mental effort to enjoy the feast.

  • Our Hearts Wait

    $20.00

    The Walter Brueggemann Library brings together the wide-ranging and enlivening thought of popular biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann over his storied career. Each volume collects previously published work on a biblical theme that has deeply informed Brueggemann’s scholarship, in an accessible digest for readers who want to freshly engage his prophetically minded but approachable writing on the topic.

    In Our Hearts Wait, Brueggemann meditates on the emotional range of our longings and gratitudes in the psalms, revealing how this bold outpouring of our full selves to the divine has effects far beyond introspection. He traces how the language of the psalms offers a template for liturgies that shape not only our collective worship and communities, but the worlds they create and sustain. Words of worship do not fall vacant and inactive-they help bring into being realities both sacred and sociopolitical.

    Throughout this exploration of the psalms, Brueggemann shows readers how the language we use in worship performs what it proclaims. It nurtures and challenges us in seasons of orientation and praise, disorientation and grief, reorientation, and thanksgiving-bringing our full attention to each experience in its turn. But in doing so, the words and deeds of worship can also sharpen our awareness of social constructions and relationships that undergird our common life. They reveal power imbalances and uneven distributions of resources, and, if we let them, urge us forward in our efforts toward justice. Thus, psalms of praise express trust in and abandonment to God, and also pose sharp critiques of unjust public policies that abandon those who are socially invisible. The psalms of grief and lament accompany communities through real experiences of loss and suffering-but also make room for the sufferers to be heard and to challenge the status quo.

    The language of worship, when used intentionally and with care, helps to create a reality marked by fidelity, abundance, truth, hope, and dependence on God. With Brueggemann as guide, readers can apprehend the potency of the psalms’ bold petition and dialogue with God, giving voice to the distressed and anticipating the transformation of our lives together and as a society.

    Questions for reflection are included at the end of each chapter, making this book ideal for individual or group study.

  • Interpreting Israels Scriptures

    $49.95

    Many readers find exegeting a passage from the Old Testament to be a mysterious process. How should one begin? What methods should one use? Written in a pragmatic style, Interpreting Israel’s Scriptures guides the reader by offering concrete methods for exegesis that are illustrated by numerous examples and accompanied by well-chosen references to secondary sources.

    This English translation of the 2012 original French version of Richelle’s book has been expanded and revised and has been reorganized to have a tripartite structure: the making of the text, the various facets of the text, and “the reader in front of the text.” The book is designed for use in exegesis courses or for personal study, and it is designed to be used both by students who know Hebrew and by those who do not. The book explores a variety of themes relevant for exegesis, including poetry literary genre, literary context, geographical context, historical context, structure, narrative analysis, intertextuality, and reception history. For those who know Hebrew, the book also includes chapters on translation, textual criticism, and compositional criticism. Finally, this English edition has two new chapters: one on feminist and gender studies, and one on postcolonial criticism.

  • Apostle And The Empire

    $29.99

    Was Paul silent on the injustices of the Roman Empire? Or have his letters just been misread?

    The existence of anti-imperial rhetoric in the writing of the apostle Paul has come under greater scrutiny in recent years. Pressing questions about just how much Paul actually addressed Rome in his letters and how publicly critical he could have afforded to be have led to high-profile debates-most notably between N. T. Wright and John M. G. Barclay.

    After having entered the conversation in 2015 with his book Hidden Criticism?, Christoph Heilig contributes further insight and new research in The Apostle and the Empire to argue that the case for Paul hiding his criticism of Rome in the subtext of his letters has more merit than previously claimed by scholars like Barclay. Moreover, he argues that there are also passages that contain more open denouncements of the Roman Empire that scholars have previously overlooked-for instance, in the mention of a “triumphal procession” in 2 Corinthians, which Heilig discusses in great detail by drawing on a variety of archaeological data.

    Heilig’s groundbreaking work constitutes a must-read for Pauline scholars but also for anyone interested in the intersection of Christianity and empire and how one of the Christian tradition’s most important teachers communicated his unease with the global superpower of his day. Furthermore, Heilig takes on larger issues of theory and methodology in biblical studies, raising significant questions about how interpreters can move beyond outdated methods of reading the New Testament toward more robust understandings of the ways ancient texts convey meaning.

  • As It Was In The Days Of Noah

    $16.99

    “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” -Matthew 24:37

    Many remember the story of Noah as a light-hearted Sunday school lesson taught with picture books and felt-board animals. Yet the Bible tells a different story – one depicting a rebellious planet and a grave event in which God destroys earth’s inhabitants with a global flood. Jesus prophesied that a similar darkness will mark the days leading up to the end times.

    As It Was in the Days of Noah reveals the stunning parallels between the period prior to that flood and our current culture, highlighting the rise in evil, a surge in sexual immorality, and the pandemic of godlessness found in both eras. From bestselling Bible prophecy author Jeff Kinley, this book examines the signs that the end times are rapidly drawing neareraffirms the urgency of reaching the lost with God’s compassion and truthe quips believers to live wisely, making their days count for eternity.

    As It Was in the Days of Noah not only reveals biblical signs indicating that this coming global judgment is imminent, but also shows how Noah’s story provides a deep reservoir of hope for all those who follow God.

  • Deliver Us : Salvation And The Liberating God Of The Bible

    $20.00

    The Walter Brueggemann Library brings together the wide-ranging and enlivening thought of popular biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann over his storied career. Each volume collects previously published work on a biblical theme that has deeply informed Brueggemann’s scholarship, in an accessible digest for readers who want to engage his writing on the topic.

    This first volume in the series, Deliver Us, fittingly begins with the narrative of the exodus . Brueggemann has consistently brought attention to how the themes of the exodus event and the stories of the giving of the law that follow lay the groundwork for a biblical understanding of salvation. Drawn from numerous publications in recent decades, this volume reveals Brueggemann’s clear understanding that divine liberation from exploitation and acquisitiveness also means liberation for generous action for the common benefit. This salvation involves not the security of the individual soul but a wholehearted transformation of social identities and relationships. With the gift of deliverance-dramatically enacted in the Hebrew people’s being led out from the oppression of pharoah-comes the task of obedience-articulated in the covenantal laws given at Mount Sinai, in the wilderness, and beyond.

    Brueggemann shows how this double theme of the gift and the task is forged in the exodus narrative, then reenacted in salvation motifs throughout the Bible. The people of God, always susceptible to mentalities of scarcity, selfishness, and the compulsion to consume, are again and again called out by the subversive message of the prophets, and Jesus himself, to forsake exploitation and to liberate the marginalized-to return to covenant obedience and align themselves with God’s radical commitment to create and sustain a more just and flourishing world. Deliver Us extends this same message of salvation, insightfully elucidated by Brueggemann in this single volume, for the benefit of both individual readers and the contemporary church.

    Questions for reflection are included at the end of each chapter, making this book ideal for individual or group study.

  • Introduction To 1 And 2 Thessalonians A Video Study (DVD)

    $74.99

    The study of Paul’s Thessalonian letters is enjoying fresh interest today. These texts are considered by many to be amongst the earliest extant Christian documents. They are included in conversations about early Jewish and Christian apocalypticism. New insights are coming from examination of the religious, socio-cultural, and political contexts of Roman Thessalonica. And, looking back, these letters have played an important role in the development of Christian eschatology. An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians, A Video Study, taught by Nijay Gupta, serves as an up-to-date guide to these discussions and much more.

  • End Of Interpretation

    $39.99

    Those who wish to interpret and understand the Bible face a fundamental question: How do I interpret Scripture faithfully? Theological interpretation is an approach that has received much attention in recent years, and R. R. Reno is a leading practitioner and proponent of this approach.

    In The End of Interpretation, Reno’s first full statement on the topic, he argues that Scripture is interpreted correctly only when it is read through the lens of creedal orthodoxy–that is, through the apostolic faith. The principle of accordance between doctrine and Scripture is of first importance for solid Christian interpretation.

    Reno provides a simple explanation of this multifaceted approach. He wrestles with what makes interpretation “theological” and provides two historical case studies, discussing Origen and the Reformation debate over justification. He then demonstrates what theological interpretation looks like in practice, reflecting on Genesis 1, John 17, and 1 Corinthians. Reno’s insights will benefit serious readers who seek to interpret Scripture faithfully.

  • Is God A Vindictive Bully

    $49.99

    Critics outside the church often accuse the Old Testament God of genocide, racism, ethnic cleansing, and violence. But a rising tide of critics within the church claim that Moses and other “primitive,” violence-prone prophets were mistaken about God’s commands and character. Both sets of critics dismiss this allegedly harsh, flawed, “textual” Old Testament God in favor of the kind, compassionate, “actual” God revealed by Jesus. Are they right to do so?

    Following his popular book Is God a Moral Monster?, noted apologist Paul Copan confronts false, imbalanced teaching that is confusing and misleading many Christians. Copan takes on some of the most difficult Old Testament challenges and places them in their larger historical and theological contexts. He explores the kindness, patience, and compassion of God in the Old Testament and shows how Jesus in the New Testament reveals not only divine kindness but also divine severity. The book includes a detailed Scripture index of difficult and controversial passages and is helpful for anyone interested in understanding the flaws in these emerging claims that are creating a destructive gap between the Testaments.

  • Old Testament In 12 Verses

    $19.99

    For many, the Old Testament is an unwieldy collection of stories, poems, rituals, and laws. Is there any way to make sense of all these different kinds of writings?

    Combining scholarship with readability, The Old Testament in 12 Verses clears a path to understanding this often misunderstood part of the Bible. By exploring twelve key Scripture verses and their accompanying passages, the authors illuminate the major themes of the Old Testament and equip the reader with a sound overview of the Bible’s first thirty-nine books.

  • Galatians Reconsidered : Jews Gentiles And Justification In The First And T

    $29.99

    What would the world look like if the Old Perspective on Paul was right about justification, the New Perspective was right about Judaism, and the Radical New Perspective was right to note ongoing differences between Jewish and Gentile converts?

    Galatians Reconsidered is a compelling, practical study of Paul the Apostle’s writing that explores just that. Emphasising the central role played by regression in Paul’s argument on justification, Neil Martin examines the dichotomy between faith and works and how the apostle envisaged the differences in how Jews and Gentiles should interact with the Law.
    By re-establishing Galatians in its original Jewish and pagan context, Martin exposes the problems faced by Galatian churches and shows how they still speak to modern churches today. His insight not only helps us better appreciate Paul’s message but challenges us to put his wisdom into practice in our own church settings.

    Provocative and stimulating Galatians Reconsidered is a robust new look at the question of justification. It will leave you with a thorough knowledge of the merits and failings of both the old and new perspectives on Paul, as well as a broader understanding of the letter to the Galatians both in the context in which it was written and its continued relevance today.

  • Magi : Who They Were, How They’ve Been Remembered, And Why They Still Fasci

    $28.00

    George Tyrrell insisted that the quest for the historical Jesus was no more than scholars staring into a well to see their own reflections staring back. Jesus is the mirror image of those who study him. A similar phenomenon accompanies the quest for the historical Magi, those mysterious travelers who came from theEast, following a star to Bethlehem.

    In this work, ancient historian and scholar Eric Vanden Eykel helps readers better understand both the Magi and the ancient and modern interpreters who have tried to study them. He shows how, from a mere twelve verses in the Gospel of Matthew, a varied and vast literary and artistic tradition was born. The Magi examines the birth of the Magi story;its enrichments, embellishments, and expansions in apocryphal writing and early Christian preaching;its artistic expressions in catacombs, icons, and paintings and its modern legacy in novels, poetry, and music.

    Throughout, the book explores the fascination the Magi story elicits in both ancient and modern readers and what the legacy of the Magi story tells us about its storytellers–and ourselves.

  • Early New Testament Apocrypha

    $64.99

    Broaden the scope of your New Testament studies with this introduction to early Christian apocryphal literature.

    To understand the New Testament well, it is important to study the larger world surrounding it, and one of the primary avenues for this exploration is through reading related ancient texts. But this task is daunting for scholars and novices alike given the sheer size of the ancient literary corpora. The Ancient Literature for New Testament Studies series aims to bridge this gap by introducing the key ancient texts that form the cultural, historical, and literary context for the study of the New Testament.

    Early New Testament Apocrypha offers an entry point into the corpus of early Christian apocryphal literature through twenty-eight texts or groups of texts. While the majority of the texts fall within the first four centuries CE, and therefore are useful for uncovering the earliest interpretations assigned to the New Testament, select later texts serve as reminders of how the meanings of New Testament texts continued to develop in subsequent centuries. Each essay covers introductory matters, a summary of content, interpretive issues, key passages for New Testament studies and their significance, and a select bibliography.

    Whether you are a scholar looking to familiarize yourself with a new corpus of texts or a novice seeking to undertake a serious contextualized study of the New Testament, this is an ideal reference work for you.

    Essays and contributors include:

    Part 1: Apocryphal Gospels

    *Agrapha, Andrew Gregory

  • Rational Bible Deuteronomy

    $39.99

    Is the Bible, the most influential book in world history, still relevant?

    Why do people dismiss it as being irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things?

    This explanation of the Book of Deuteronomy, the fifth book of the Bible, will demonstrate how it remains profoundly relevant-both to the great issues of our day and to each individual life.

    Do you doubt the existence of God because you think believing in God is irrational? This book will cause you to reexamine your doubts.

    The title of this commentary is The Rational Bible because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. In Dennis Prager’s words, “If something I write is not rational, I have not done my job.”

    The Rational Bible is the fruit of Prager’s forty years of teaching to people of every faith and no faith at all. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world in general and to you on a personal level.

    His goal: to change your mind-and, as a result, to change your life.

    $26.99

    Did you know you can read Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in about 18 minutes? Yet packed into this short talk are more life-changing and startlingly original teachings than anywhere else in Scripture. In it, Jesus dives past the surface into the heart of what we need and desire–from God, ourselves, and one another. It’s the spiritual straight talk we need about the things that matter most in life.

    Drawing from decades of study, Dr. Robert Jeffress breaks down Jesus’s most well-known (yet least-followed) teachings about happiness, faith, relationships, sex, reconciliation, prayer, money, and more. He shows how we often misunderstand and misapply these verses and unpacks exactly what Jesus was teaching us about our own hearts and minds.

    If you long to take your Christian walk to the next level, it’s time to grasp these biblical truths that have the power to change your life.

  • Word Of A Humble God

    $20.00

    “Scripture is a spring of life-giving, life-altering truth, but when we don’t understand how and why it came to us, we end up misusing it.”

    How did we get the Bible? And why does it matter? History reveals that Scripture can be used for both life-giving and destructive purposes. Discovering the Bible’s origins makes all the difference for fostering redemptive interpretation of Scripture. Bringing together both historical criticism and theology, this investigation examines ancient scribal culture through the lens of faith. What we find is a divine-human collaboration that points to the character of God and the value of human agency.

    In this concise presentation of a breadth of scholarship usually only found across multiple volumes, Karen Keen offers a vital introduction to the material origins of the Bible, theories of inspiration, and the history of biblical interpretation-with reflections on what this all means for us as we read Scripture today. Through the ins and outs of these important topics, and with the aid of thought-provoking questions and learning activities at the end of each chapter, Keen argues that the Bible and its origins reveal a humble God who invites us to imitate that humility-a humility that is itself the most powerful antidote to the misinterpretation and abuse of Scripture.

  • Honor Patronage Kinship And Purity Second Edition

    $40.00

    For contemporary Western readers, it can be easy to miss or misread cultural nuances in the New Testament. To hear the text correctly we must be attuned to its original context. As David deSilva demonstrates, keys to interpretation are found in paying attention to four essential cultural themes: honor and shame, patronage and reciprocity, kinship and family, and purity and pollution.

    Through our understanding of honor and shame in the Mediterranean world, we gain new appreciation for how early Christians sustained commitment to a distinctive Christian identity and practice. By examining the protocols of patronage and reciprocity, we grasp more firmly the connections between God’s grace and our response. In exploring kinship and household relations, we grasp more fully the ethos of the early Christian communities as a new family brought together by God. And by investigating the notions of purity and pollution along with their associated practices, we realize how the ancient map of society and the world was revised by the power of the gospel.

    This new edition is thoroughly revised and expanded with up-to-date scholarship. A milestone work in the study of New Testament cultural backgrounds, Honor, Patronage, Kinship, and Purity offers a deeper appreciation of the New Testament, the gospel, and Christian discipleship.

  • Impact Of Ordinary Women In The Bible

    Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God

    In book two of Don Wilkerson’s series The Impact of Ordinary People, the names listed in each chapter are not well-known women of the Bible. But that’s the theme of this unique devotional.

    Adah, Bilhah, Jehosheba, and Huldah are just some of the ordinary women who accomplished extraordinary things for the glory of God. Scripture contains a supporting cast of men and women often overlooked in Bible study. This devotional brings thirty lesser-known women to life with short but thought-provoking lessons. Each woman deserves attention for her significant impact, but it’s God’s redemption story that is highlighted and woven through the lives of these ordinary women.

    For those seeking discipleship material for personal growth, this book will aid individual and small group Bible study.

    This devotional is also a helpful resource for pastors and Christian leaders to develop biblical lessons or one-of a-kind sermons.

    Baptism is a subject which has caused confusion amongst Christians for many years. Jesus included it in his final charge to the disciples. It is clearly important, so why do we spend so much time arguing about it? Baptism is a God given sign, not to obscure the gospel, but to make it clearer. Karl Deenick explains not only what baptism is, what it isn’t, and who should be baptised, but he follows the threads of symbolic cleansing through both the Old and New Testaments. He explains and exalts the gospel and shows how the Old Testament foreshadows Jesus and how he fulfils the Old Testament.

    Lampstands, horsemen, beasts, locusts, and angels-the book of Revelation is filled with these images and more. How does anyone make sense of all this? Dan Boone, in this latest volume of the Reading and Interpreting the Bible Series, cuts a clear path to the plotline of this intriguing biblical book. Boone explores the book of Revelation and its imagery using the narrative elements of entrance, bad news, good news, response, and blessing. With attention given to Revelation’s apocalyptic, prophetic, and epistolary features, the author provides the reader with the sound interpretive clarity needed to understand the message and imagery of this fascinating book. Helpful diagrams are included, along with a bibliography.

    Reading the Bible with understanding is challenging. Without sound guidance, making sense of the different literary types, settings, and cultures found in the Scriptures can be overwhelming. The Reading and Interpreting the Bible Series opens the door to a proper and accessible method of biblical interpretation. Each volume concentrates on a specific literary type found in the Bible, highlighting its features and function. Social, political, and religious settings are examined, and a critical analysis of the biblical text brings to light its message and relevance for today. Readers will find in these volumes numerous illustrations of how to interpret specific texts, which can be used as a pattern for individual or group Bible studies.

  • 15 New Testament Words Of Life

    $19.99

    The New Testament is made up of words–about 138,000 words. Put together, these words express the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. They also told early believers what living for Jesus Christ looked like and called them to faithful living.

    In 15 New Testament Words of Life, New Testament expert Nijay Gupta explores the most important words found in the New Testament. He makes their meaning clear so that these words can become–once again–life giving words for modern Christians as they were for early Jesus-followers. For those first readers of the New Testament who chose to follow Jesus, these words were words of life and they can be again for Jesus-followers in the modern world.

    For many Christians, these weighty words of the New Testament have become stale from over exposure (e.g., love) or their life-giving meaning is fuzzy and unclear because they are not words that frequent our everyday conversation (e.g., holiness). In 15 New Testament Words of Life, readers will learn what these important words meant to the earliest Christian readers and how we can capture the transformative power of these 15 words today and live faithfully for Christ in God’s world.

  • Reading The Bible Missing The Gospel

    $14.99

    Returning to the story of redemption brings clarity and color to the whole Bible!

    You’re getting this wrong! Over and over, throughout the Gospels, this was the message of Jesus. With frustration and sometimes pity, He addressed the religious leaders and His disciples: Somewhere along the way your hearts and thoughts got confused, lost, way off track. Would Jesus have the same assessment of us today? How have we missed the teachings and messages of the Bible? How are we missing Jesus?

    In Reading the Bible, Missing the Gospel, pastor and author Ben Connelly shows us how to recover God’s original intentions in light of the story of redemption. Connelly helps us celebrate and understand how Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection are truly good news for the tangible situations in our everyday lives. Biblical misunderstandings can lead to a small view of God–but truth overturns that. It expands our hearts for God and enables us to truly love others!

    The author reveals shockingly common ways we get the Bible wrong. Connelly invites Christians to see themes and teachings with new eyes–or, rather, with old eyes–on topics like confession and forgiveness . . . what it means to be blessed or happy . . . whether we’re commanded to or prohibited from passing judgement. How does the gospel inform our understanding and answer these questions? Connelly gives readers a new gospel-focused lens that addresses common frustrations and helps them see with renewed hope, clarity, and courage.

  • Romans : Text, Readers, And The History Of Interpretation

    $49.99

    A wide-ranging study of the interpretation of Paul’s letter to the Romans throughout history, from Origen to Karl Barth.

    In anticipation of his Illuminations commentary on Paul’s letter to the Romans, Stephen Westerholm offers this extensive survey of the reception history of Romans. After two initial chapters discussing the letter’s textual history and the its first readers in Rome (a discussion carried out in dialogue with the Paul-within-Judaism stream of scholarship), Westerholm provides a thorough overview of over thirty of the most influential, noteworthy, and representative interpretations of Romans from nearly two thousand years of history. Interpreters surveyed include Origen, John Chrysostom, Augustine, Peter Abelard, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Locke, Cotton Mather, John Wesley, and Karl Barth.

    Bearing in mind that Paul did not write for scholars, Westerholm includes in his study interpreters like Philipp Jakob Spener and Richard Baxter who addressed more popular audiences, as well as an appendix on a remarkable series of 372 sermons on Romans by beloved British preacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones. A further aim of the book is to illustrate the impact of this New Testament letter on Christian thought, supporting Westerholm’s claim that “the history of the interpretation of Romans is, in important areas and to a remarkable extent, the history of Christian theology.”

  • Gods Goddesses And The Women Who Serve Them

    $59.99

    A wide-ranging study of women in ancient Israelite religion.

    Susan Ackerman has spent her scholarly career researching underexamined aspects of the world of the Hebrew Bible-particularly those aspects pertaining to women. In this collection drawn from three decades of her work, she describes in fascinating detail the worship of goddesses in ancient Israel, the roles women played as priests and prophets, the cultic significance of queen mothers, and the Hebrew Bible’s accounts of women’s religious lives.
    Specific topics include:

    *the “Queen of Heaven,” a goddess whose worship was the object of censure in the book of Jeremiah

    *Asherah, the great Canaanite mother goddess for whom Judean women were described as weaving in the book of Kings

    *biblical figures considered as religious functionaries, such as Miriam, Deborah, and Zipporah

    *the lack of women priests in ancient Israel explored against the prevalence of priestesses in the larger ancient Near Eastern world

    *the cultic significance of queen mothers in Israel and throughout the ancient Near East

    *Israelite women’s participation in the cult of Yahweh and in the cults of various goddesses

  • Old Testament Law For The Life Of The Church

    $40.00

    From the early days of the church to the present, the Old Testament Law has been a subject of much confusion, debate, and outright theological division. And with good reason: the way Christians understand the Law has massive implications for their individual lives and for the life of the church. To sort through the numerous interpretations and approaches to this thorny issue, we need to start with a solid knowledge of the Law itself.

    Richard Averbeck provides a comprehensive, accessible discussion of how the Law fits into the arc of the Bible and its relevance to the church today. Beginning with the way God intended the Law to work in its original historical and cultural context, he then explores the New Testament perspective on the Law. Averbeck identifies three biblical theological theses: the Law is good, the Law is weak, and the Law is a unified whole. Rejecting common partitions between categories of law, he makes the case that the whole Law applies to the Christian. Our task is to discern how it applies in the light of Christ.

    The Old Testament Law for the Life of the Church invites readers to consider how all of Scripture is illuminating and useful for God’s people. The church, as the new temple, has much to learn from the Law and about what it means for our doctrine and practice.

  • 40 Questions About Prayer

  • No Room For Compromise

    $79.97

    A STORM
    Is On the Horizon

    Hurricanes consist of multiple belts of rain and wind that pound the earth in sequence with pauses between each violent phase. When the eye of the storm arrives, the sky may appear bright and clear, giving the illusion that the storm has passed. But the truth is, the fiercest impact of the storm is still approaching. Those who don’t know how to read the signs and patterns of a storm may mistakenly emerge from their place of safety, only to face unprotected the full velocity of the storm’s brutal fury.

    In No Room for Compromise: Christ’s Message to Today’s Church, Rick Renner sets forth his most prophetic book to date. With a sobering charge to Christian leadership to stand up for faith in Christ regardless of the price required to proclaim it in its purest form Renner’s message is a clarion call: Winds of opposition against the Church are gathering. As pagan influences continue to increase in these last days, Christianity will once again become completely out of sync with the times with its message that Christ alone is the way to the Father.

    The Bible is clear that at the end of the age, the spiritual hurricane of persecution that struck the Early Church will once again slam against society with devastating consequences. God has always had His remnant who would not bow to external pressures. In these final hours of the Church Age, He will have a remnant again. Will you be among them?

  • Word From The Beginning

    $26.99

    And the Word became flesh

    John’s Gospel famously opens with a poetic prologue about the Word. However, after these initial verses, the theme of God’s Word incarnate seems to fade.

    The silence is only apparent. In The Word from the Beginning, Bruce G. Schuchard reunites John’s prologue with the rest of his Gospel. What Jesus does in the Gospel embodies who Jesus is in the prologue. Jesus’s words and actions reveal and unfold his unique identity as the Word. Jesus is indeed God’s Word enfleshed.

    This theological reading of John’s Gospel unifies Jesus’s identity, words, and work, opening up implications for Johannine Christology.

  • Promise And The Blessing

    $49.99

    The Bible is a collection of writings that together tell a unified story. But exactly how do all the pieces fit together? In a single volume, The Promise and the Blessing connects the dots of the Old and New Testament books to reveal the big picture of salvation history. Organized chronologically rather than canonically, this book traces the flow of Israel’s history and shows how the New Testament proceeds out of the Old. It begins with God’s creation of the cosmos and the initial problem of the fall of man. Then it traces God’s solutions to that problem as he selects first one man, Abraham, then his line, and then the nation of Israel to provide the Messiah. Finally, it focuses on the Messiah himself and looks at how the gospel of Jesus was spread throughout the known world. The Promise and the Blessing is easy to use and ideal for anyone who wants to understand the grand narrative of the Bible. It features numerous photos as well as sidebars and brief, engaging “breakouts” with supplementary information. Maps, illustrations, summaries, and insightful notes help to illuminate the text. Field-tested in the classroom, The Promise and the Blessing is designed for Old and New Testament survey classes and will provide all readers of the Bible with a better understanding of how the drama that began in Eden winds through Israel’s history to its fulfillment in Jesus Christ.

  • Lord Roars : Recovering The Prophetic Voice For Today

    $24.99

    The world cries out for a prophetic word to the chaos, unrest, and destructiveness of our times. Can the biblical prophets speak into our world today?

    Leading Old Testament ethicist M. Daniel Carroll R. shows that learning from the prophets can make us better prepared for Christian witness. In this guide to the ethical material of Old Testament prophetic literature, Carroll highlights key ethical concerns of the three prophets most associated with social critique–Amos, Isaiah, and Micah–showing their relevance for those who wish to speak with a prophetic voice today.

    The book focuses on the pride that generates injustice and the religious life that legitimates an unacceptable status quo–both of which bring judgment–as well as the ethical importance of the visions of restoration after divine judgment. Each of these components in the biblical text makes its own particular call to readers to respond in an appropriate manner. The book also links biblical teaching with prophetic voices of the modern era.

  • Foretaste Of The Future

    $28.00

    For many Christians, the book of Revelation inspires confusion and fear.

    It’s seen as a coded screenplay for the end times, or it’s just too strange to understand. The problem, Dean Flemming contends, is that when we read Revelation as focused on the future, we miss what it says about what God is doing in the world now.

    Revelation is one of the richest texts in Scripture for understanding both God’s mission to make everything new and how the church is caught up in that mission. In Foretaste of the Future, Flemming mines this largely untapped resource by introducing a missional reading of Revelation. Drawing from a variety of cultural perspectives, Flemming explores Revelation’s original context, key themes, and transformational message that rings out for each new generation.

    By reading Revelation in light of God’s mission, we gain a renewed vision of God’s great purpose to redeem and restore all creation through the work of the slain Lamb. We also see how God’s people are called to help offer a foretaste of salvation and healing now, along with insight on how to contextualize this mission in particular settings. A missional reading not only invites us to imagine the future; it teaches us to let the future cast its light into the present to guide our way.

  • Marys Voice In The Gospel According To John

    $16.99

    A brilliant scholar of the gospels offers a stunning new translation of the Gospel of John that captures and illuminates the influence and voice of Mary the mother of Jesus–a voice which suffuses and transfigures the original with a mother’s deep and universal compassion and wisdom.

    A New Light on John’s Gospel

    The Gospel according to John has always been recognized as different from the “synoptic” accounts of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

    But what explains the difference?

    In this new translation and verse-byverse commentary, Michael Pakaluk suggests an answer and unlocks a twothousand-year-old mystery. Mary’s Voice in the Gospel according to John reveals the subtle but powerful influence of the Mother of Jesus on the fourth Gospel.

    In his dying words, Jesus committed his Mother to the care of John, the beloved disciple, who “from that hour . . . took her into his own home.” Pakaluk draws out the implications of that detail, which have been overlooked for centuries.

    In Mary’s remaining years on earth, what would she and John have talked about? Surely no subject was as close to their hearts as the words and deeds of Jesus. Mary’s unique perspective and intimate knowledge of her Son must have shaped the account of Jesus’ life that John would eventually compose.

    With the same scholarship, imagination, and fidelity that he applied to Mark’s Gospel in The Memoirs of St. Peter, Pakaluk brings out the voice of Mary in John’s, from the famous prologue about the Incarnation of the Word to the Evangelist’s closing avowal of the reliability of his account.

    This remarkably fresh translation and commentary will deepen your understanding of the most sublime book of the New Testament.

  • Lost Letters To The 12 Prophets

    $22.99

    Understand the Prophets Like Never Before with Amazing Insights from One of Today’s Foremost Old Testament Scholars

    For many Christians reading the Old Testament, trying to understand Israel’s prophets is like listening to just one side of a phone conversation–you only get half the idea of it. You hear the answer, but how do you know what question the prophet is answering?

    In The Lost Letters to the Twelve Prophets, John Goldingay uncovers the questions behind the prophets’ answers that make their meaning and relevance intelligible to us. Written as a series of imaginary letters to the twelve Minor Prophets, The Lost Letters to the Twelve Prophets asks the kinds of questions that Hosea, Micah, Zechariah, and others were answering. The letters make clear the issues these prophets of Israel were dealing with or deliver the news they were responding to in their Old Testament writings. For example,

    *To Hosea: Why did you marry someone you knew might be unfaithful?
    *To Joel: It looks as if a locust epidemic is on the way: what should we do?
    *To Amos: What should we do about the war crimes of peoples around us?
    *To Obadiah: The Edomites have occupied our land and pushed us out: what’s up with that?
    *To Jonah: When is God going to fulfill his undertaking to destroy Nineveh?
    *To Micah: Will God always be angry with us as a people?
    *To Nahum: When is God going to fulfill his undertaking to destroy Nineveh?
    *To Habakkuk: When is God going to do something about injustice in Judah?
    *To Zephaniah: What do you mean by the day of the Lord?
    *To Haggai: When is God going to fulfill his promises about rebuilding the temple?
    *To Zechariah: Should Jeshua be High Priest when he has been in an unclean land?
    *To Malachi: Why does serving God seem pointless?

    These and other questions help readers peer behind the veil of Minor Prophets’ utterances and unlock their significance for today’s Christians. Each chapter:

    *begins with a brief paragraph of background about the prophet
    *recounts questions or reports that have been addressed to the prophet in the form of a letter
    *sums up message of the prophet responding to that question
    *offers a brief comment or explanation after each passage

    The Lost Letters to the Twelve Prophets offers an imaginative, fun, and engaging way for students, pastors, and all serious Bible readers get a better grip on what is happening in these often misunderstood biblical books and get more out of their Bible reading and st

  • Between Heaven And Earth

    $39.95

    In this book the New Testament scholar Gerhard Lohfink interprets a spectrum of biblical texts, some familiar, others not. He explores them in a spirit of curiosity, questions them insistently, and confronts them with the realities of our present day, from COVID-19 to the inner loneliness experienced by so many.

    In light of central biblical texts Lohfink asks: what would a life look like today if it were wholly in the world and at the same time wholly in God-sweeping joyously between heaven and earth-aware of the immeasurable breadth of the universe and still able to marvel at the tiniest flower-knowing the depths of the human heart and being comforted by a child’s smile.

    This book takes up the colorful threads of many Old and New Testament texts and weaves from them a many-hued tapestry of biblical theology. It reveals things unknown, sheds new light on things known, and is full of surprises. It speaks not only to the curious or the “nones” who want to know more about the Christian message; it is addressed to everyone who senses a desire to understand the Bible better and more deeply.

  • From Prisoner To Prince

    $24.00

    The story of Joseph is prominent in the book of Genesis and yet is rarely mentioned in the rest of Scripture.

    How then do we understand Joseph’s significance in redemptive history? When Christians have addressed this question, the conversation has frequently turned toward typology: Is Joseph a type of the Messiah?

    Messianic interpretations of the Joseph narrative have often lacked methodological rigor or have simply failed to make a convincing case. Most often interpreters have simply noted historical correspondences between Joseph and Jesus, without considering the narrative’s function in the context of Genesis, its redemptive-historical significance, or its appropriation by later biblical authors.

    In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Samuel Emadi offers a more comprehensive canonical treatment of the Joseph narrative. He considers Genesis 37-50 in its own literary and theological context, intra-canonical development of the Joseph story via inner-biblical allusion, and New Testament references and allusions. Emadi defends the notion that Joseph functions as the resolution to the plot of Genesis and that this story typologically influences how later biblical authors narrate redemptive history, culminating in the New Testament’s portrayal of Jesus as an antitypical, new and final Joseph.

    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.

  • Letters To Early Churches

    $27.99

  • Pentateuch : From Genesis To Deuteronomy

    $27.99

    God the Creator reveals his true nature in the first five books of the Bible.

    While the broader story of the Bible–how God takes the first steps in reconciling the world–is known to many Christians, careful readers of the Pentateuch still have many questions. The first five books of the Bible are filled with violence, oppression, and human suffering. The story of the origin of the Jewish nation is one of hardship and loss.

  • Enigmaticas Parabolas De Jesus – (Spanish)

    $24.99

    Los estudiosos modernos de las parabolas se han preocupado durante mucho tiempo de preguntar que dijo Jesus y que pretendia con sus parabolas. Ruben Zimmermann va mas alla en su libro Las enigmaticas parabolas de Jesus y explora la dinamica del discurso parabolico en toda su rica complejidad. Usando la historia de la investigacion y la distincion de los enfoques historicos de los literarios y los orientados al lector; a continuacion, se expone una hermeneutica posmoderna que analiza los elementos narrativos y el contexto, traza el trasfondo sociohistorico.

    En esta obra el autor se centra en las parabolas de las primeras fuentes cristianas (Marcos, Mateo, Lucas, Juan y el Evangelio de Tomas) para explorar como funcionan las parabolas en cada contexto literario. Por encima de todo reina el principio de que el significado o mensaje teologico de una parabola no puede extraerse de la forma parabolica; asi, las parabolas siguen invitando a la participacion de oyentes y lectores hasta nuestros dias.

    El estudio de las parabolas de Jesus representa tambien un reto con respecto a su significado, pues existe una tendencia creciente entre los eruditos de las parabolas para reconocer la imposibilidad de reducir el significado de estos textos a una unica interpretacion. La estructura de su libro se divide en dos partes.

    En la primera se acerca al estudio de las parabolas desde tres diferentes enfoques, que aplica en diferentes parabolas. En la segunda se acerca al estudio proponiendo una metodologia integral para el estudio de las parabolas, que aplica nuevamente de forma practica en diferentes parabolas.

    Indices que se incluyen:

    *bibliografia amplia del libro y de cada capitulo,
    *Indice muy util de temas
    *indice de otros de texto antiguos

    The Enigmatic Parables of Jesus

Ruben Zimmermann goes further in his book The Enigmatic Parables of Jesus and explores the dynamics of parabolic discourse in all its rich complexity. The introductory chapters address the history of the research and distinguish historical from literary and reader-oriented approaches, followed by a postmodern hermeneutic that analyzes narrative elements and context, traces the sociohistorical background.

    Subsequent chapters focus on a parable from early Christian sources (Mark, Matthew, Luke, John, and the Gospel of Thomas) to explore how parables function in each

  • Rethinking The Dates Of The New Testament

    This paradigm-shifting study is the first book-length investigation into the compositional dates of the New Testament to be published in over 40 years.

  • In The Fullness Of Time

    $44.99

    An Exegetical Study of the Book of Acts and Pauline Theology

    Christians meticulously research the apostle Paul, but often skip a crucial starting point: the foundations of his deeply nuanced theology. Some studies on the book of Acts attempt to touch on every major theme in Paul’s letters, making them difficult to understand or prone to leaving out important nuances. Christians need a biblical, theological, and exegetically grounded framework to thoroughly understand Paul’s theology.

    In this book, Richard B. Gaffin Jr. gives readers an accessible introduction to Acts and Paul. Building on a lifetime of study, Gaffin teaches on topics including the redemptive-historical significance of Pentecost; eschatology; and the fulfillment of redemptive history in the death and resurrection of Christ. In the Fullness of Time is an exegetical “textbook” for pastors, students, and lay leaders seeking to learn more about Acts and Paul from a Reformed and evangelical perspective.

    Explores the Foundations of Paul’s Theology: Offers a nuanced look at the core of Paul’s thinking

    Wide-Ranging Audience: A valuable study for pastors, theology students, and lay leaders

    Thorough Yet Accessible: An in-depth look at Pauline theology that’s accessible to readers
