  • Trustworthy : Thirteen Arguments For The Reliability Of The New Testament

    $22.00

    How do we know the New Testament is reliable?

    It matters-but discussions on whether the New Testament is historically accurate can be tedious and overwhelming. We want to be confident that the reports in the New Testament are true and dependable, but scholarly discussions around the authenticity of the events recounted in Scripture can be challenging to navigate.

    Dr. Ben Shaw provides the clear introduction we’ve needed for understanding the New Testament’s historical reliability. In his book, Trustworthy, he systematically surveys key issues related to New Testament reliability and provides guidance for those setting out to explore the evidence. Concise, to-the-point chapters equip readers to answer the challenging questions one encounters when discussing the credibility of the New Testament. Addressing a wide variety of evidence including archaeology, authorship, text criticism, and non-Christian sources, Shaw leads readers through the key scholarly topics related to New Testament reliability.

    Here’s the truth: we can trust the New Testament not only for its historical accuracy but also as a guide to life.

  • 7 Challenges That Shaped The New Testament

    $49.99

    The New Testament writings reflect a sense of wrestling to understand what the world-shattering events of Jesus’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension mean in the rough-and-tumble of daily life in a conflicted world. In this book, a senior New Testament scholar investigates seven critical areas of tension–historical, moral, political, material, social, perceptual, and temporal–that shape the “big ideas” discussed and debated in the New Testament.

    This lively investigation explores the challenges that influenced the New Testament writings and how the writers responded to those tensions. The author shows that out of this upheaval came a remarkable set of creative, dynamic writings that have shaped and challenged millions of lives as sacred Scripture.

    This accessibly written book offers a fresh way to learn about the world and content of the New Testament writings. It will help readers appreciate the rich diversity of New Testament thought cohering around commitment to the one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  • Embedded Genres In The New Testament

    $39.99

    Recognizing what we are reading–the genre–is crucial for understanding any written work, including the books of the New Testament. However, we may not always realize we use genre categories as we interpret, whether explicitly or implicitly. Embedded genres, or genres within genres, can substantively impact the interpretation of an entire New Testament book.

    This short, accessible book by a widely respected scholar and seasoned teacher introduces embedded genres, their impact on New Testament interpretation, and how they contribute to the message of the New Testament authors. Jeannine Brown offers hermeneutical guidance for interpreting embedded genres and explores the hermeneutical questions they raise. She focuses on three case studies of embedded genres that have been contested, underidentified, or underappreciated across the New Testament corpus: the Christ poem in Philippians 2, riddles in Matthew, and the household code in 1 Peter.

    Students of the New Testament, pastors, and ministry leaders will value this work.

  • Conquerors Not Captives

    $16.99

    *Discover good news for the Christian life
    *Understand how Christ has defeated sin’s power
    *Identify the “wretch” in Romans 7

    Is the Christian battle against sin a long defeat?

    In Conquerors, Not Captives, Joseph R. Dodson and Mattie Mae Motl challenge the popular view that Romans 7:14-25 describes the typical Christian battle against sin. The “wretched man” of Romans 7 seems unable to do what God’s law demands and, for many Christians, his inner conflict and turmoil seem all too relatable. But are we impotent before sin and powerless to do good? When we reexamine Romans 7 in light of Paul’s writings elsewhere and his interpreters throughout church history, we encounter better news.

    Conquerors, Not Captives is an accessible and thoughtful study that rebukes our gloomy expectations and invites us to take seriously the Bible’s assurances that the Holy Spirit frees us from sin’s power.

  • Miracles For Skeptics

    $21.99

    Are the miracle stories in the Bible actually true?

    Christians and skeptics alike may doubt the veracity of Jesus’s miracles. Preachers often rely on a dry, literal interpretation of his healings and wonders, or else try to tame them and explain them away rationally. Both approaches, in their obsession with historical accuracy, miss the truth behind these stories.

    Frank G. Honeycutt draws out the deeper truths in the weird incidents in the Bible. In a warm, conversational style, Honeycutt reads iconic miracle stories–from the wedding at Cana to demonic exorcisms–to enrich the life of faith. Digging into these “unbelievable” stories can widen our spiritual imaginations and point to the promise of Christ’s new world. Pastors seeking thoughtful resources and any inquisitive reader will find a wealth of pastoral insight and scriptural wisdom in Miracles for Skeptics.

  • Knowing El Kanna Our Jealous God

    $16.99

    In Knowing El Kanna: Our Jealous God, renowned author Charles Simpson explores the lesser-known name of God, El Kanna, translated as The Jealous God.

    While the notion of jealousy is often associated with sin, Simpson reveals how God’s jealousy over His people can be a righteous and transformative force. Drawing from biblical teachings, Simpson unravels the connection between idol worship and the jealousy of God. He highlights how idolatry, which extends beyond physical objects to encompass desires that supersede our devotion to God, grieves His heart. As the New Testament expands the definition of idolatry to include covetousness, Simpson empowers readers to identify and overcome the idols that hinder their relationship with the Almighty.

    Knowing El Kanna not only exposes the idols in our lives but also provides practical guidance on how to free ourselves from their grip once and for all. With a deeply personal touch, Simpson parallels his own journey of overcoming idols with the nation of Israel’s historical struggles, taking readers on a transformative exploration from Genesis through Revelation.

    Rooted in the timeless truths of God’s Word, this book offers hope and encouragement to those seeking to align their lives with His heart. By viewing their lives through the lens of Scripture, readers will discover the freedom and fulfillment that come from a life liberated from idols.

    If you are yearning to become a person after God’s own heart and are willing to embark on a life-changing journey, Knowing El Kanna: Our Jealous God is an invaluable resource. Prepare to be inspired, challenged, and equipped to walk an idol-free path, experiencing the fullness of a restored relationship with the One who loves you unconditionally.

    In God Cares Enough: The Message of Jonah, author L. Edward Hazelbaker delves into the central theme of God’s boundless care for both His followers and His enemies, extending to all of Creation.

Within the pages of God Cares Enough readers not only witness the Lord’s dealings with Jonah but also uncover God’s genuine emotions and His intentions for His followers and the future of the world.

  • Moral Vision Of Proverbs

    $49.99

    Wisdom literature is an unfamiliar genre to modern readers and presents many interpretive challenges. In this major new work, respected wisdom scholar Timothy Sandoval argues that the book of Proverbs, though difficult to access for some, provides a coherent moral vision for human flourishing.

    The approach Sandoval argues for in The Moral Vision of Proverbs is that of virtue ethics, or character ethics, particularly that which emerges from the classical tradition of Aristotle (as opposed to reading the book, intentionally or unintentionally, through the lenses of modern ethical systems). Sandoval engages with specialists in this ethical tradition as well as biblical scholars to make his case that Proverbs is an ancient, virtue-oriented moral discourse.

    This comprehensive critical study of Proverbs analyzes the book’s major topics and strives to discern the moral and philosophical presuppositions and logic of its rhetoric, all the while engaging past and present interpretive approaches. Although authored by a Christian scholar, this text will be of great interest to a broadly ecumenical audience, whether students of the Old Testament/Tanakh/Hebrew Bible, biblical scholars, or Christian ethicists and moral theologians.

  • Does The Old Testament Really Point To Jesus

    $4.99

    A Concise Guide to Finding Jesus in the Old Testament

    Can we see Jesus in the first 39 books of Scripture? While Christians believe the entire Bible points to Jesus as the Messiah, many have trouble identifying him in the Old Testament because he’s never mentioned by name.

    In this addition to the Church Questions series, David King guides curious readers on a journey to discover Jesus in all of Scripture. The booklet begins by examining Jesus’s own understanding of how the Old Testament witnesses to him. Next, readers learn 6 ways the Old Testament points to Jesus, including promises of redemption, how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament law and wisdom, and Old Testament types of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. Finally, King explains why it matters to believers and the church today that Jesus is understood as the fulfillment of the Old Testament.

    *Biblical and Theological: Explains the various ways in which Jesus fulfills the Old Testament

    *Accessible: Answers common questions about the Old Testament in a short, easy-to-read format

  • Armageddon : What The Bible Really Says About The End

    $17.99

    You’ll find nearly everything the Bible says about the end in the Book of Revelation: a mystifying prophecy filled with bizarre symbolism, violent imagery, mangled syntax, confounding contradictions, and very firm ideas about the horrors that await us all. But no matter what you think Revelation reveals–whether you read it as a literal description of what will soon come to pass, interpret it as a metaphorical expression of hope for those suffering now, or only recognize its highlights from pop culture–you’re almost certainly wrong.

    In Armageddon, acclaimed New Testament authority Bart D. Ehrman delves into the most misunderstood–and possibly most dangerous–book of the Bible, on a “vigilantly persuasive” ( The Washington Post) tour through three millennia of Judeo-Christian thinking about how our world will end. With wit and verve, he explores the alarming social and political consequences of expecting an imminent apocalypse, considers whether the message of Revelation may be at odds with the teachings of Jesus, and offers inspiring insight into how to live in the face of an uncertain future.

    By turns hilarious, moving, troubling, and provocative, Armageddon is nothing short of revelatory in its account of what the Bible really says about the end.

  • Reading Genesis

    $29.00

    A Farrar Straus And Groux Title

    One of our greatest novelists and thinkers presents a radiant, thrilling interpretation of the book of Genesis.

    For generations, the book of Genesis has been treated by scholars as a collection of documents by various hands, expressing different factional interests, with borrowings from other ancient literatures that mark the text as derivative. In other words, academic interpretation of Genesis has centered on the question of its basic coherency, just as fundamentalist interpretation has centered on the question of the appropriateness of reading it as literally true.

    Both of these approaches preclude an appreciation of its greatness as literature, its rich articulation and exploration of themes that resonate through the whole of Scripture. Marilynne Robinson’s Reading Genesis, which includes the full text of the King James Version of the book, is a powerful consideration of the profound meanings and promise of God’s enduring covenant with humanity. This magisterial book radiates gratitude for the constancy and benevolence of God’s abiding faith in Creation.

  • Hear Ye The Word Of The Lord

    $25.00

    Long before the words of the Bible were written, God’s communication through the spoken word rang out loud and clear. Jesus in particular commissioned representatives to speak on his behalf even during the time of his earthly ministry. And yet today we are a reading culture. It is easy for modern Christians to take for granted that the Bible was handed down in written form, but the way we receive God’s message is far different from how the original hearers would have heard it. These differences not only shape the way that we hear God’s message to his people, but they put us at risk of misunderstanding his revelation.

    In Hear Ye the Word of the Lord, biblical scholar D. Brent Sandy explores how oral communication shaped the ways that biblical writers received God’s message-and even more importantly, how the ancient and modern faithful receive it through hearing. Filled with helpful biblical insights related to oral communication and constructive ways for modern readers to become better hearers and performers of Scripture, Hear Ye the Word of the Lord provides a constructive way forward for readers interested in exploring how we can better hear God’s Word.

  • Transfiguration Of Christ

    $26.99

    All three Synoptic Gospels tell the story of Jesus’s transfiguration. Yet there has been surprisingly little written about this key event, and many readers struggle to understand its significance and place in redemptive history, let alone how it might be applied.

    Here, Patrick Schreiner provides a clear and accessible study of the transfiguration with an eye toward its theological significance and practical application. Namely, this event points to Jesus’s double sonship, revealing the preexistent glory of the eternal Son and the future glory of the suffering Messianic Son. Further, the transfiguration points to Christians’ own formation and transfiguration. Schreiner traces the transfiguration theme through Scripture and employs hermeneutical, trinitarian, and christological categories to assist his exegesis, thus challenging modern readings.

    This enlightening study will be of interest to students, pastors, and serious lay readers.

  • Are We Living In The Last Days

    $22.99

    Will Jesus’s return be preceded by a single world government?

    Will every person have a government-issued ID or mark?

    Does Christ return once or twice?

    Will believers go through a Great Tribulation?

    Will there be a literal battle of Armageddon?

    Does it even matter what we believe about future events?

    Biblical prophecies about the end times have confused, confounded, and even divided God’s people for centuries. But the reason Scripture gives us hints about the future is to provide the encouragement we need to endure the present, confident that God keeps his promises.

    In this balanced look at four major views of the end times, bestselling author Bryan Chapell explains the primary ways Christians have interpreted biblical prophecy about the last days, not so that we might pick a hill to die on but so that we can cling to what unites us in Christ.
    No matter what end times view we find most compelling, in God’s plans we can find strength for today and hope for tomorrow.

  • It Is Finished

    $29.99

    Across forty days of vivid storytelling, It Is Finished offers you a unique and vital roadmap to trace the power and necessity of the cross throughout the Bible, from the book of Genesis all the way to your present-day reality.

    Through forty slices of the story of Calvary, master storyteller and vivid Bible teacher Charles Martin, will walk you back to the cross to look up at it from a different angle each day and ask the Father to reveal to you:

    *What exactly did he mean when the dying Jesus said, It is finished-what was finished at the cross?

    *When did what Jesus finish at the cross even begin?

    *What does this man’s death 2,000 years ago have to do with me today?

    *What is God offering at the cross that I so easily forget and take for granted?

    *What do I not realize about myself that the Father God has never forgotten?

    Whether it is your first, tenth, or ten thousandth time looking up at the cross of Christ, you can trust New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin, to wrap an arm around your shoulder, come alongside and walk with you as a fellow pilgrim headed in the same direction and answering the same question: What will I do with this man, Jesus?

    Because before we can celebrate the resurrection, we need to backtrack to where Jesus has been, how He got there, and what His presence there accomplished. And while Satan can’t change what happened on that Friday, he has been working ever since to hide what happened there. To obscure the work of the Cross. To avert our eyes. But on this 40-day pilgrimage your eyes will open wide and your heart will race as you discover the answer to the question that can change your life, Lord, why me? Why would you endure the cross and despise the shame, for me?

  • Lost World Of The Prophets

    $22.00

    Being responsive to God is at the heart of prophecy. But readers of ancient prophecies and apocalyptic literature-including those in the Old Testament-can come away thoroughly perplexed. Are the prophets speaking about their own times, about our present, or about some still-unrealized future?

    It’s common to study prophecy with a focus on the sole question of prediction and fulfillment, either for the sake of apologetics or for understanding the end times, but such an approach can fail to track with the original intent of the authors. We need to shake loose both from a paradigm of reading prophecy as an offer of mysterious divination as well as from the habit of constructing eschatological timelines of any sort. How do these books work as meaningful Scripture for Christians today?

    John Walton applies his signature method to help us recover the lost world of the prophets. To read these biblical books well, we must understand:

    *the role of the prophet
    *the nature of prophetic literature

    Across forty days of vivid storytelling, It Is Finished offers you a unique and vital roadmap to trace the power and necessity of the cross throughout the Bible, from the book of Genesis all the way to your present-day reality. Through forty slices of the story of Calvary, master storyteller and vivid Bible teacher Charles Martin, will walk you back to the cross to look up at it from a different angle each day and ask the Father to reveal to you: What exactly did he mean when the dying Jesus said, It is finished-what was finished at the cross? When did what Jesus finish at the cross even begin? What does this man’s death 2,000 years ago have to do with me today? What is God offering at the cross that I so easily forget and take for granted? What do I not realize about myself that the Father God has never forgotten? Whether it is your first, tenth, or ten thousandth time looking up at the cross of Christ, you can trust New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin, to wrap an arm around your shoulder, come alongside and walk with you as a fellow pilgrim headed in the same direction and answering the same question: What will I do with this man, Jesus? Because before we can celebrate the resurrection, we need to backtrack to where Jesus has been, how He got there, and what His presence there accomplished. And while Satan can’t change what happened on that Friday, he has been working ever since to hide what happened there. To obscure the work of the Cross. To avert our eyes. But on this 40-day pilgrimage your eyes will open wide and your heart will race as you discover the answer to the question that can change your life, Lord, why me? Why would you endure the cross and despise the shame, for me?

  • Promised Davidic King

    $29.99

    Reading psalms in context

    The Psalter is a carefully edited work, skillfully arranged to communicate a theological message. The Promised Davidic King is a case study of how a single psalm shapes-and is shaped by-its context in the Psalter. Wyatt A. Graham argues that Psalm 108 plays a guiding role in Book V (Pss 107-150). Following Israel’s return from exile in Psalm 107, Psalm 108 introduces the eschatological King and kingdom further developed in Psalms 109-110. Psalm 108 repurposes Psalms 57 and 60, which in this location, take on renewed meaning in the Psalter’s unfolding story of redemption.

    Graham’s study of Psalm 108 gives insight into the meaning of the Psalms and displays the benefits of reading psalms in their context.

  • Hard And Holy Work

    $17.00

    Mary Alice Birdwhistell and Tyler Mayfield reflect on the brave action of the midwives Shiphrah and Puah and other faithful women in Exodus, Moses’ awakening to the plight of the Hebrew people, Moses’ life-changing encounter with the burning bush, the Israelites taking the risk of crossing the Red Sea, and more-alongside numerous contemporary stories-to help readers to see anew and contemplate how God is calling them to respond to what is not right in the world: racial injustice, especially borne by women of color, houselessness, and discrimination against LGBTQ+ communities and people with disabilities.

    Are we paying attention to the holy ground beneath our feet? Where do we see burning bushes in our world today, and what are they calling us to do? Do spiritual encounters in our lives have holy consequences in the world around us? Many of us want to understand how to integrate our personal spiritual lives more actively with our engagement in working for justice and the liberation of the oppressed and marginalized. Hard and Holy Work provides a space for just that, helping readers participate in Lent in a new way by becoming attuned to God’s boundless presence in our world and waking up to and taking action for God’s justice through exploring stories from the book of Exodus that have inspired the work of liberation for centuries.

    Pastor Mary Alice Birdwhistell and Hebrew Bible scholar Tyler Mayfield reflect on the brave action of the midwives Shiphrah and Puah and other faithful women in Exodus, Moses’ awakening to the plight of the Hebrew people, Moses’ life-changing encounter with the burning bush, the Israelites taking the risk of crossing the Red Sea, and more-alongside numerous contemporary stories-to help readers to see anew and contemplate how God is calling them to respond to what is not right in the world: racial injustice, especially borne by women of color, houselessness, and discrimination against LGBTQ+ communities and people with disabilities.

    Lent is traditionally a time of self-reflection and action that prepares followers of Christ to walk more intentionally in the way of God. Hard and Holy Work takes readers through a unique Lenten journey, encouraging us to see those who are marginalized or suffering as God sees them; contemplate how privilege, fear, risk, and feelings of uncertainty can cloud our attention; and practice endurance for the messy middle of justice work, leaning on God’s provision and rest when the way forward is

  • Time Of The Signs

    Original price was: $16.99.Current price is: $13.59.

    “What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” –Matthew 24:3

    The disciples could not wait. Christ had said He would bring an end to human rule and establish His kingdom. But when? Eager to learn how the future would unfold, they asked Him about the signs of His coming and the end times. What should they expect to take place?

    In The Time of the Signs, pastor Barry Stagner explores the events that will precede Christ’s return. As he describes Earth’s final days, he answers the many questions people ask, including:

    *Why is the rebirth of Israel the most significant sign that the end times are near?

    *What other important clues, evident today, reveal the closeness of the tribulation and Christ’s return?

    *Where does the rapture fit in the chronology of all that will occur in the last days?

    *After Christ returns, what is next?

    As you study the signs Jesus foretold, you’ll see amazing evidence that we are living in the very time of these signs–and gain a clear understanding of what will happen, and when.

  • Arrival Of The King

    $29.99

    The suffering and vindicated king

    The Psalter evinces meaningful arrangement. When psalms are read with attentiveness to their textual context, striking connections emerge. In The Arrival of the King: The Shape and Story of Psalms 15-24, Carissa Quinn approaches these psalms as a compositional unity. When read as a unit, Psalms 15-24 tell the story of God’s kingdom, established through the suffering and deliverance of his Davidic king.

    Quinn interprets Psalms 15-24 as a sequence and a chiasm, revealing provocative links in adjacent and parallel psalms. These psalms have a sense of progress, beginning with the question of who may ascend the holy hill and culminating in the divine king’s own ascent. They also display recursion, as themes in one psalm are developed in its chiastic parallel. At the peak of the chiasm is Psalm 19, where the king praises God’s creation and Torah and prays for righteousness.

    The Arrival of the King establishes and explores the rewards of approaching the Psalms as a carefully arranged literary work.

  • Demystifying Evil : A Biblical And Personal Exploration

    $28.00

    The evil that afflicts our lives often leaves us confused and directionless, wounded and powerless. How should we respond to evil’s power to assault us? How can we understand God’s work in a world that seems all too often to be permeated with evil?

    Narrating her own wrestling with evil as well as engaging in biblical and philosophical analysis, biblical scholar Ingrid Faro explores the many dimensions to evil. Soberly honest, biblically engaged, and theologically nuanced, Demystifying Evil examines the power of evil to disrupt and fragment our lives and tempt us to collude with it.

    But evil does not have the last word. Faro takes us on a journey into the book of Genesis, the Ancient Near East culture, the cross, and her own story of suffering to engage the undoing of evil.

  • Creator : A Theological Interpretation Of Genesis 1

    $40.00

    The Christian claim that the triune God is the creator of the universe is both exegetically grounded and theologically rich.

    Yet discussions about God’s work of creation are often overwhelmed by questions such as the age of the earth and the relationship between divine creation and evolution. Without completely ignoring such issues, Peter Leithart offers a decidedly theological interpretation of the creation account from Genesis 1.

    By engaging with classic discussions of creation, including those of Plato and Aristotle, as well as Christian articulations as varied as those of Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Sergius Bulgakov, Karl Barth and Robert Jenson, Leithart embraces the challenge of talking about God and God’s first work. Here, readers will discover what it means to articulate a theology that is rigorously grounded in the first chapter of the Bible and the creedal affirmation of God the Father almighty, who is the creator of the heavens and earth.

  • Birds Eye View Of Luke And Acts

    $36.00

    What do the books of Luke and Acts teach us about God, Jesus, and the early church? How do these two books relate to each other? And what do they mean for us today?

    In this accessible and compelling introduction, Michael Bird draws us into the wide-ranging narrative of Luke-Acts to discover how Luke frames the life of Jesus and of the first disciples who set out from Jerusalem to “the ends of the earth” proclaiming the Good News. Bird shows us how these two books, when read together, tell a cohesive narrative about Jesus, the Church, and the mission of God-with implications for the whole of our lives today. Situating both books in their historical and literary context, Bird moves through an exploration of their central theological themes and culminates with consideration of the books’ relevance for contemporary social issues.

  • Surprising Genius Of Jesus

    $14.99

    How the Story of the Prodigal Son Illuminates Jesus’s Genius

    When someone thinks of Jesus, “genius” is not likely the first word that comes to mind. But when studied in detail, Jesus’s teachings and interactions with others combined high levels of knowledge and insight, verbal skill, and simplicity–showing his genius.

    In The Surprising Genius of Jesus, Peter J. Williams examines the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15 to show the genius, creativity, and wisdom of Jesus’s teachings. He used simple but powerful stories to confront the Pharisees and scribes of the day, drawing on his knowledge of the Jewish Scriptures to teach his audience through complex layers and themes. Williams challenges those who question whether Jesus really was the source of the parables recorded in the Gospels, pointing readers to the truth of who Jesus is and why that matters for them today.

    *Clear and Insightful: Accessible for general readers with in-depth footnotes for those wanting to learn more

    *Biblical: Comprehensive, interscriptural analysis of the story of the prodigal son

    *Written by Peter J. Williams: Author of Can We Trust the Gospels? and principal of Tyndale House, Cambridge

  • Hero And The Whore

    $18.00

    Of all the things modern people of faith overlook or choose to ignore in the Bible, stories of sexual exploitation are near the top of the list. This isn’t so different from our world today, when victims of trafficking, rape, and harassment are dismissed and disbelieved, their stories twisted and erased. Trauma-informed educator and minister Camille Hernandez dives deep into the Bible’s stories of exploitation and abuse to name the difficult truths buried in Scripture, address the forms such violence takes in modern society, and illuminate a path of healing and hope. With a blend of storytelling, cultural analysis, and trauma-informed care, The Hero and the Whore invites readers to reconsider their assumptions about victims of sexual exploitation and respond with compassionate understanding that will bring us all to the wholeness God desires.

  • Into The Heart Of Romans

    Original price was: $29.99.Current price is: $20.97.

    An in-depth study of Romans from today’s foremost interpreter of Paul.

    Romans is often and for good reason considered a crux of Christian thought and theology, the greatest of Paul’s letters. And within Romans, chapter 8 is one of the most spectacular pieces of early Christian writing.

    But to many readers, Romans can be a deceptively difficult book. Its scope and basic meaning may be clear, but it can be hard to see how it all fits together into a cohesive, if complex, doctrinal argument.

    N. T. Wright-widely regarded as the most influential commentator and interpreter of Paul-deftly unpacks this dense and sometimes elusive letter, detailing Paul’s arguments and showing how it illuminates the Gospel from the promises to Abraham through the visions of Revelation. Wright takes a deep dive into Romans 8, showing how it illuminates so much else that God reveals in Scripture: God the Father, Christology, and the Spirit; Jesus’ Messiahship, cross, resurrection, and ascension; salvation, redemption, and adoption; suffering and glory; holiness and hope.

    Into the Heart of Romans will help you become familiar with the book of Romans in a deeper way that will also deepen your understanding and appreciation of the Gospel itself.

  • 40 Questions About The Apostle Paul

    $24.99

    What can we know about the apostle Paul, and what difference does it make?

    Paul of Tarsus was an undeniably forceful presence in the early Christian church, instructing fledgling congregations of believers throughout the Mediterranean in person and by letter and authoring about half of the New Testament in the process. But who was this powerful personality? And how can students most benefit from the extensive studies on Paul available today?

    New Testament scholars Miguel Echevarria and Benjamin Laird provide an invaluable foundation for students beginning their investigations into the apostle Paul, Paul’s theology, and Pauline studies, addressing orienting questions such as these: * What do we know about Paul’s family? * How did Paul’s companions assist in the composition and distribution of his letters? * Did Paul think his letters were authoritative Scripture? * Is there a center to Paul’s theology? * What is Paul’s Christology? * What are the strengths and weaknesses of the New Perspective on Paul? * Does Paul address slavery and racial division?

    Through its question-and-answer format, 40 Questions about the Apostle Paul provides a succinct introduction and entryway to more advanced study of Paul and the Pauline letter corpus. Additional resources are available at 40questions.net.

  • Great Disappearance : 31 Ways To Be Rapture Ready

    Original price was: $29.99.Current price is: $17.47.

    The rapture is the central event in biblical prophecy. But what does it mean for us today? How can this crucial end times event draw us nearer to God in a world that is seemingly on the brink of chaos? Political turmoil, economic uncertainty, an ideological divide that feels increasingly impassable–the signs of the times point us toward the end, and that can be disconcerting.

    But the greatest truth about the rapture is not its timing, but its reality–for blessed are all who long for His appearing.

    The Great Disappearance is a culmination of decades of Dr. Jeremiah studying end times throughout the Bible. In this definitive volume he will explain the meaning of the word rapture, the difference between the rapture and the second coming, and the joy of expecting our Savior to come at any given moment. Dr. Jeremiah will also explore key questions such as:

    *Who will be raptured?
    *When will it happen?
    *What will happen to those left behind?
    *What will believers experience when they are taken away to heaven?
    *Will non-believers still have time to repent and be saved?

    Dr. Jeremiah seeks to answer all of those questions and many more, not with sensationalism or stories ripped from the headlines but with solid, biblical truth. Because God has laid out His plan for us in His Word so that we might not be caught unaware. We may not know the exact date that the rapture will happen, but we do know it will happen. Are you ready for it?
