  • Acts Verse By Verse

    $29.99

    The events in the book of Acts changed our world forever.

    Following his account of Jesus’ life and ministry in his Gospel, Luke recounts the formation of the early church in Acts. And while the apostles appear to be at the center of this narrative, all of their work is done through the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit. In every chapter in Acts, we see Spirit-empowered apostles sharing the gospel reality of the risen Christ to the ends of the earth.

    In Acts Verse by Verse, Grant Osborne guides readers through these crucial events in history. He shows us that by sending his Holy Spirit, the risen and exalted Lord was acting through the apostles–and through us today–to transform human history. Osborne skillfully explains the significance of these events and shows us how we can draw inspiration from them today.

  • Luke Verse By Verse

    $32.99

    The Gospel of Luke is an orderly historical account, but it is far from ordinary.

    In the longest Gospel, Luke places great stress on the unique lordship of Jesus and God’s plan to bring salvation into this world. Throughout, Luke stresses that Jesus’ message reaches the forgotten people groups of this world, particularly the poor and women, showing us that the gospel is truly intended for all peoples.

    In Luke Verse by Verse, Grant Osborne leads readers through this systematic account of Jesus’ life. He shows us why Luke may be called “the theologian of prayer” and unpacks the far–reaching power of the gospel then and now. With Osborne as guide, readers will learn what this Gospel, which introduces the Suffering Servant who has become the Risen Lord of all and reigns by his Spirit, can teach us today.

  • 1 And 2 Thessalonians Verse By Verse

    $22.99

    When we overlook Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians, we miss out.

    Paul’s letters to the church in Thessalonica are often considered two of the less important of his letters, but they were written to a very important city with very important issues. In addition to addressing the issue of Christ’s return and the problem of people who refused to work, these letters model a truly loving relationship between a pastor and a congregation.

    In 1 & 2 Thessalonians Verse by Verse, respected New Testament scholar Grant R. Osborne shows us that in a world that centered on the divinity of the emperor and the demands to participate in the worship of the gods, the Thessalonians desperately needed to be given resources that would help them withstand the pressure to conform. These letters provide us with a thrilling example of affection among believers in extremely hard times and help us see how that affection can make severe trials bearable.

  • John Verse By Verse

    $29.99

    John is at once the most complex and the easiest to understand of all the Gospels.

And if we want to study an incredibly deep theological masterpiece that stretches the brightest mind, we open the Gospel of John. It is the most evangelistic account of Jesus’ life and ministry, and it also gives the mature Christian deep theological truths to chew on.

    In John Verse by Verse, respected New Testament scholar Grant R. Osborne invites the reader to become caught up in the dramatic masterpiece of the Fourth Gospel. He writes, “If I were teaching a course in college or seminary on creative writing, John’s Gospel would be set alongside Shakespeare as models of brilliant characterization and plot.” It is perhaps Osborne’s favorite book of the Bible, and enthusiasm for it shines on every page.

  • Galatians Verse By Verse

    $22.99

    After the Apostle Paul returned from his first missionary journey, he heard that a certain group of legalistic Jewish Christians had infiltrated the churches he had established. These false teachers were teaching that new Christians had to be circumcised and follow the Old Testament law in order to be truly saved. Paul, realizing the gospel was at stake, wrote this letter in response.

    In Galatians Verse by Verse, experienced New Testament scholar sets forth Paul’s laser-focused argument: Jesus is not only the Messiah; he came to inaugurate a new era in salvation history. In this new era, Christians are not made right with God by obeying the law; justification is by faith alone. This frees believers to live their lives not trying to earn salvation, but instead joyfully keeping in step with the Spirit. Pastors, Bible study leaders, and invested laypeople will all benefit from Osborne’s careful reading of the text and commitment to making sense of the New Testament without scholarly jargon.

  • Ephesians Verse By Verse

    $22.99

Throughout, he makes clear that everything we are and have is ours only “in Christ.” In Ephesians Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne offers a clear exposition of this letter that takes seriously both its first-century context and what it means for us today.

  • Revelation Verse By Verse

    $28.99

    Revelation is like no other book in the New Testament. Its bizarre images need explaining even for seasoned Bible readers, but when we turn to biblical scholars we find that they don’t all agree.

    In Revelation Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne offers a clear exposition of the book that takes seriously both its first-century context and what it means today. Where he disagrees with other interpretations of particular images, he briefly mentions them but remains focused on the text throughout. Rather than being a book that stirs up fear, Revelation is instead a hopeful and even devotional book, focused on the certainty of God’s bringing his plans to completion, the futility of Satan and his plans, and the glory of the Lamb.

    Revelation Verse by Verse is the first volume in the Osborne New Testament Commentaries, a new series from noted Bible scholar Grant R. Osborne directed toward pastors and committed laypeople.

  • Revelation

    $30.00

    Interpretations of the book of Revelation are numerous and varied. The preterist view focuses on first-century social analysis of John’s environment. The church-historical view sees the Revelation as a prophetic survey of the history of the church. The futurist view sees the book as a precise prediction of unfolding events in the yet-to-come end of the world.

    The trouble with all three, argues J. Ramsey Michaels, is that they make the Revelation of John irrelevant to Christians throughout much of history. Failing to take seriously what John saw, such interpreters do not comprehend the value of the Revelation to Christians in any age. Michaels strives to recapture the Revelation as a prophetic letter of testimony, a testimony as relevant to today’s church as it was to John’s as it faces evil and looks for the victory of the Lamb.

    Winner of a Christianity Today Critics’ Choice Award!

    What is the proper relationship between faith and deeds? How do Christians mature in the faith? What hope can we offer to those who face trials of various sorts? How do we learn to control our tongues and not get bogged down with riches?

    The apostle James faced these questions in profound ways and offered sound pastoral advice to his readers, scattered by persecution. His word to them can become a vital word to us if we are prepared to listen.

    In this keen, pastorally oriented commentary, readers will find exposition focused on what James had to say to his original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today.

    Commentary
    Bibliography

    Additional Info
    First-century Corinth and its challenges were not so different from our own. Upwardly mobile Christians facing radically diverse ethnic, religious, economic and social conditions. The church divided over issues of leadership and authority, sexual morality, gender and worship, marriage and divorce. Sound familiar?

    Yet as Alan Johnson highlights in this excellent commentary, in the midst of this detailed, practical letter to a church in crisis Paul has penned one of the greatest paeans to love ever written. And, of course, love is just what is needed to address complex human issues–whether in the first century or the twenty-first.

    Johnson’s deft analysis of 1 Corinthians features an introduction that explores the social, cultural and historical background of the city and its people. Rounding out the introduction, Johnson discusses the letter’s occasion and date, authorship and purpose, and major theologicall themes. His passage-by-passage commentary follows, seeking to explain what the letter of 1 Corinthians means for the church today as well as what it meant for its original hearers.

    Use this resources in your own studies of 1 Corinthians, and you may be surprised how relevant it is to the issues you face today as well.

    Introduction To Romans
    Outline Of Romans
    Commentary
    Bibliography

    Additional Info
    Few individual books of the Bible have changed the course of church history the way Paul’s letter to the Romans has. Whether one thinks of Augustine’s conversion in the fourth century, Luther’s recovery of justification by faith in the sixteenth or Barth’s challenge to recover theological exegesis of the Bible in the twentieth, Romans has been the catalyst to personal spiritual renewal and the recapturing of gospel basics. Paul, in seeking to bring unity and understanding between Jews and Gentiles in Rome, sets forth in Romans his most profound explication of the gospel and its meaning for the church. The letter’s relevance is as great today as it was in the first century. Throughout this commentary, Grant R. Osborne explains what the letter meant to its original hearers and its application for us today.
