Honor Patronage Kinship And Purity Second Edition$40.00Add to cart
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$10.99Add to cart
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.
Reading The Bible Missing The Gospel$14.99Add to cart
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.
Washed By God$17.99Add to cart
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.
No Room For Compromise$79.97Add to cart
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?

Each chapter combines exposition, spiritual application, and a deeper look at some of the thornier aspects of the text.

Lord Roars : Recovering The Prophetic Voice For Today$24.99Add to cart
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$28.00Add to cart
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.

– Do physical postures affect prayer?
Promise And The Blessing$49.99Add to cart
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.

The authors explore how the triune God revealed in Christ shapes Scripture and its readers and how doctrinal rules intrinsic to Scripture help guide exegesis.
From Prisoner To Prince$24.00Add to cart
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.

In The Fullness Of Time$44.99Add to cart
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

On Purpose : Understanding Gods Freedom For Women Through Scripture$17.99Add to cart
Many Christian women are torn between how the church has taught traditional gender roles and the liberty they see secular society afford to women. But what if the church’s conventional teachings on the place of women aren’t really biblical at all?
On Purpose is a serious study on the verses in the Bible that have often been interpreted to define the role of women in the church, at home, and in the workplace. Each chapter focuses on a single passage, considering what it meant to the original recipients, understanding each author’s intent, and applying its true meaning in today’s cultural setting. With each chapter, Julie Coleman thoroughly reveals how the timeless principles in the Bible actually teach freedom for women. In fact, when rightly understood, these verses are a wake-up call that we are handicapping the church’s role on earth by limiting women unnecessarily. Instead, men and women should be working side by side for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
Written without anger or judgment, and with no agenda but to delve deep into the Bible, On Purpose is an enlightening study offering a fresh, scriptural perspective. It’s time to set women free to answer God’s call on their lives–and set the church free to function the way God truly desires.

Mysteries Of The Apocalypse$27.00Add to cart
Inspired by the complimentary feature film documentary series, The 7 Churches of Revelation, The Mysteries of the Apocalypse by Jean-Marc Thobois and Christophe Hanauer looks at the book of Revelation through the lens of biblical history, archaeology, and culture, giving readers a more accurate-and fascinating-understanding of the end times.
The book of Revelation, written by the Apostle John, opens with a set of seven letters sent to a community of seven churches located in present-day Turkey.
The term apocalypse has acquired a negative connotation over the centuries that has taken it away from its original meaning to evoke a cataclysmic and destructive event. This word has become popular for the wrong reasons. In Ancient Greek, it means a disclosure or revelation of great knowledge.
The first key to better understand the mysteries of the prophecies of Revelation is to refer to Old Testament scriptures. In order to understand the New Testament, one should ask how the people of Israel understood and interpreted the teachings of Jesus and the apostles in their day.
The second key is to consider the historical and political context of the time of writing of the text. In the first century, the Roman Empire persecuted, sometimes with extreme violence, the followers of Jesus Christ.
Finally, the third key proposed is to regard the book of Revelation as a sort of synthesis, a summary of eschatological prophecies present throughout the Bible.
Far from claiming to provide absolute truth, these three major keys help to decipher the true meaning of the text and better grasp its allusions and other symbolisms. Thus history, archeology, and culture anchor the book in reality. This unveiling gives context that speaks with great interest to our generation.

Good Samaritan : Luke 10 For The Life Of The Church$24.99Add to cart
The story of the good Samaritan in Luke 10 is one of Jesus’s most well-known parables. It continues to fascinate readers for its powerful imagery and ethical significance.
In this exposition, New Testament scholar Emerson Powery shows how this classic and beloved text can speak afresh to the life of the church today. Powery explains that in every generation, followers of Jesus need to be reminded that mercy is a natural consequence of faith. Jesus’s parable of the good Samaritan emphasizes this point in a dramatic way by placing an “enemy” as the central hero of the story. Powery explores diverse interpretations of the good Samaritan, carefully investigates this parable within the theology of the Gospel of Luke, and connects the parable to contemporary events. The book encourages readers to think through the ethical implications of this story for their own context.
The Touchstone Texts series addresses key Bible passages, making high-quality biblical scholarship accessible for the church. The series editor is Stephen B. Chapman, Duke Divinity School.
Old Made New$17.99Add to cart
Many Bible readers have difficulty understanding the Old Testament’s connection to the New Testament, and some even believe it’s obsolete in light of God’s new covenant. In reality, New Testament writers alluded to earlier books of the Bible roughly 300-400 times. The Old Testament isn’t outdated; it’s critical to understanding the rest of Scripture.
In Old Made New, Greg Lanier explains how New Testament authors used the Old Testament to communicate the gospel and present the person and work of Jesus. He also explains what the Old Testament teaches Christians today about the church’s identity and ethics. Writing for a broad range of readers, Lanier distills thorough research into simple, descriptive examples and tips. His 3-step method explains how to identify and explore an Old Testament passage and see how it’s “remixed” in the New Testament to thoughtfully engage with Scripture.
Godly Kings Of Judah$14.99Add to cart
What will your legacy be?
Long ago, God’s people were divided into two kingdoms. The land of Judah–with Jerusalem as its capital–was led by twenty kings, only eight of whom were good. Not even half! What does that tell you? That it’s hard to follow God to the end and leave a legacy that’s remembered well.
Bible teacher Cynthia Cavanaugh wants you to meet the good kings of Judah who earned a reputation for godliness and received the Lord’s favor. Though their names aren’t well known to us, their examples should be celebrated. Cynthia takes you deep into the Word of God, heading into the often-overlooked corners of 1-2 Kings and 1-2 Chronicles to uncover these ancient rulers whose lives–full of ups and downs–have hidden lessons for us today.
In The Godly Kings of Judah, you’ll embark on an 8-week Bible study that leads you through a process of repentance, renewal, and revival. The Old Testament kings will be your companions as you fight the Lord’s battles, topple the idols that claw at our hearts, and bring reformation to the holy people of God. Don’t miss out on this exciting adventure! Because when all is said and done, you want the legacy of the godly kings to be your own as well: “She did what was right in the Lord’s eyes.”

Literarily : How Understanding Bible Genres Transforms Bible Study$14.99Add to cart
Don’t just read the Bible literally–read it Literarily.
A lot of times, we treat Scripture like it’s all the same from Genesis to Revelation. After all, it only has one Author. Isn’t it just one big book, identical from beginning to end?
While it’s true that the Bible is unified, it is also diverse. The Bible can be grouped according to key categories, called genres, that help us to read and properly interpret the Scriptures. An understanding of these genres, and the literary themes and devices used within them, makes all the difference when encountering God’s Word.
Long-time Bible teacher Kristie Anyabwile discovered as she prepared her lessons that a single inductive approach doesn’t do justice to the variety of genres that make up the Word of God. Because Scripture is a collection of writings that spans 1,500 years, many literary styles are represented and each must be taken into account for the fullest understanding of God’s Word. Kristie shows you the immense value of studying the Bible literarily–that is, according to the literary style presented in a particular book, chapter, or passage. In Literarily, Kristie will take you through these eight distinct genres:
The Bible is an epic story that God has revealed to us through diverse genres and literary features. Its message and method are both meant to transform our hearts. Our goal as interpreters isn’t to meld the Scriptures into a bland conglomerate, but to recognize the multiple forms in which God’s Word comes to us. In so doing, we’ll encounter the ongoing story of Jesus’s redemption and learn how He calls His people to live in our complex world today.
Excavating The Evidence For Jesus$24.99Add to cart
Examine the Evidence Surrounding Jesus
No other figure has impacted history like Jesus. Yet today, he’s often seen as a mythical character whose legend increased over time. So what does the historical and archaeological evidence say about Jesus?
Archaeologist Dr. Titus Kennedy has investigated firsthand the discoveries connected to Jesus’ birth, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection. He has visited and excavated where Jesus walked, and examined the artifacts connected to Jesus’ life. Here, he presents an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the research and findings that illuminate the historicity of Christ as presented in the Bible.
Excavating the Evidence for Jesus progresses chronologically through the Gospels, noting the many relevant archaeological, historical, geographic, and literary findings. As you read, you’ll be able to decide for yourself whether the evidence confirms the existence and story of Jesus, and determine whether the Gospels are worthy of being approached not as legends, but as history. Further, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the historic basis of Christianity, a richer knowledge of the ancient world, and an evidence-based perspective on the reliability of the Bible.

Most people–even people of faith–do not understand how the Bible fits together.

If The Tomb Is Empty Study Guide$13.99Add to cart
If the tomb is empty, then anything is possible.
Whether you’re a new believer, a seasoned servant of the faith, or maybe you don’t know what you are, join pastor Joby Martin as he traverses the peaks and valleys of six Biblical mountains–Mount Moriah, Mount Sinai, Mount Carmel, the Mount of Beatitudes, the high mountain on which Jesus was tempted, and the Mount of Transfiguration. In scripture, these mountains are used by God for His purposes because they are where God chooses to manifest Himself. And none more so than on the seventh and final mountain where this story begins and ends: the Cross of Jesus Christ on Mount Calvary, and the empty tomb that means so much for us.
That Jesus walked out of the tomb alive, and that right this second the Son of God lives, matters for everyone who would believe it. So if the tomb is empty, what does it mean for you? The answer is clear: everything.
Typology Understanding The Bibles Promise Shaped Patterns$39.99Add to cart
Read the Bible with Fresh Eyes as You See Scripture’s Promise-Shaped Patterns
When you read the Bible, have you ever noticed parallels between certain people, events, and institutions? Should we understand Noah as a kind of new Adam, and if so, does that somehow point us to the second Adam? How are we to interpret these similarities?
In Typology–Understanding the Bible’s Promise-Shaped Patterns, author James M. Hamilton Jr. shows that the similarities we find in the Bible are based on genuine historical correspondence and demonstrates how we recognize them in the repetition of words and phrases, the parallels between patterns of events, and key thematic equivalences. When read in light of God’s promises, these historical correspondences spotlight further repetitions that snowball on one another to build escalating significance.
This book stimulates fresh thinking on the relationship between the Old and New Testaments and will help pastors, preachers, and students better understand the dynamics of inner-biblical interpretation. It explores several of the “promise-shaped patterns” we see in the Old Testament including:
*Adam and New Adam
*Prophets, Priests, and Kings
*The Righteous Sufferer
*Exodus and New Exodus
Hamilton shows that the prophets and sages of Israel learned to interpret Scripture from Moses and his writings. And by tracing the organic development of subsequent biblical patterns, he explains how these patterns created expectations that are fulfilled in Christ. Jesus himself taught his followers to understand the Old Testament in this way (Luke 24:45), and the authors of the New Testament taught the earliest followers of Jesus how to read the Bible through a typological lens.
Typology–Understanding the Bible’s Promise-Shaped Patterns equips pastors, bible teachers, students, and serious Bible readers to understand and embrace the typological interpretive perspective of the biblical authors. You will learn to read the Bible as it was intended by its original authors while cultivating a deeper love and appreciation for the Scriptures.

Handbook Of The Jewish Roots Of The Gospels$27.95Add to cart
Is it even possible to say anything new about Jesus of Nazareth? Disciples and detractors alike have been weighing in for two thousand years. Scholarship in the last fifty years has been greatly enhanced by the recognition of the Jewishness of both the historical Jesus and the life and teachings of the apostle Paul. But the Gospels themselves, the texts that preserve the words and deeds of Jesus, have not been subject to the same level of consideration in this regard. Until now. This book surveys the historical, theological, and practical issues that arise when the Gospels are read as Jewish literature. So yes, there is something new here about Jesus.
The Jewish context of Jesus and his movement is better understood today thanks to archaeology, the ongoing publication of ancient texts, and changes in the way scholars think about Jewish society in late antiquity.
A Handbook on the Jewish Roots of the Gospels, whose contributors are well-known in the field, updates all of the relevant topics relating to Jesus and the Gospels in light of these exciting new developments.
Now And Not Yet$28.00Add to cart
For various reasons, the books of Ezra and Nehemiah have suffered comparative neglect in Old Testament scholarship.
However, as Dean Ulrich demonstrates, Ezra-Nehemiah as a literary unit is part of the Christian Bible that tells God’s grand story of saving activity. It focuses not so much on how to be an effective leader but on how to be a godly participant in God’s story. God may be concerned about human conduct, but the moral imperatives appear in the larger context of God’s acts and promises. However exemplary Ezra and Nehemiah the men may be, Ezra-Nehemiah has an interest in how God’s people contribute to building the new (and New) Jerusalem-God’s redeemed community that is bigger than any single person. Mission-that is, participation in God’s purpose for his world-factors into the message of these books.
In this NSBT volume, Ulrich views Ezra-Nehemiah as the record of the beginning of a new work of God among his people after the exile. This new work, which led eventually to the first coming of Jesus, enables God’s people to be restored presently (‘now’) in their relationship with God. Such restoration involves a combination of hope in God’s promises (‘not yet’) and obedience to his instruction concerned with mission.
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.
Impact Of Ordinary People$10.99Add to cart
Moses, David, Joseph, Peter, Paul…these are just some of the well-known names of the Bible. They are the subject of countless sermons and stories that have inspired Bible lessons from childhood to adulthood. But Scripture also contains a supporting cast of ordinary men and women often overlooked in Bible study. These lesser-known characters deserve accolades for their contribution to God’s redemptive story.
In a three-part series, Don Wilkerson shares the impact of those less known in the Bible, both named and unnamed. These not-so-familiar characters are brought to life in short but thought-provoking chapters with lessons that remind us that God often uses ordinary people in extraordinary ways to build His kingdom.
For those seeking discipleship material for personal growth, The Impact of Ordinary People will aid individual and small group Bible study. This three-part series is also a helpful resource for pastors and Christian leaders to develop unique and one-of-a-kind sermons.
