  • Jesus the Great Philosopher

    $13.99

    Many of us tend to live as though Jesus represents the “spiritual part” of our lives. We don’t clearly see how he relates to the rest of our experiences, desires, and habits. How can Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity become more than a compartmentalized part of our lives?

    Highly regarded New Testament scholar and popular teacher Jonathan Pennington argues that we need to recover the lost biblical image of Jesus as the one true philosopher who teaches us how to experience the fullness of our humanity in the kingdom of God. Jesus teaches us what is good, right, and beautiful and offers answers to life’s big questions: what it means to be human, how to be happy, how to order our emotions, and how we should conduct our relationships.

    This book brings Jesus and Christianity into dialogue with the ancient philosophers who asked the same big questions about finding meaningful happiness. It helps us rediscover biblical Christianity as a whole-life philosophy, one that addresses our greatest human questions and helps us live meaningful and flourishing lives.

  • Handbook on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament

    $14.39

    This concise guide by a leading New Testament scholar helps readers understand how to better study the multitude of Old Testament references in the New Testament. G. K. Beale, coeditor of the bestselling Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, focuses on the “how to” of interpreting the New Testament use of the Old Testament, providing students and pastors with many of the insights and categories necessary for them to do their own exegesis.

    “This handbook provides readers with a wonderful overview of key issues in and tools for the study of the use of the Old Testament in the New. I expect it to become a standard textbook for courses on the subject and the first book to which newcomers will be directed to help them navigate through these sometimes complex waters.”–Roy E. Ciampa, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

  • Gospel Centered Youth Ministry

  • Jesus is the Christ

    $23.99

    More than simply a series of chapters on the theology of John’s Gospel, Jesus Is the Christ relates each of John’s teachings to his declared aim, expressed in John 20: 30-31: “Jesus did many other signs before his disciples, which have not been written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.” Indeed, each chapter in Morris’s book takes up some facet or aspect of John’s expressed aim.

    For an age still asking the question “Who is Jesus?” Leon Morris argues convincingly that John’s entire Gospel was written to show that the human Jesus is the Christ, or Messiah, as well as the Son of God. But it is Morris’s firm conviction that John’s purpose was evangelical as well as theological — that is, John wrote his book so that readers might believe in Christ and as a result have eternal life.

  • Preaching that Changes Lives (Reprint Edition)

    $14.99

    Jesus spoke of the urgent need for his listeners to put his words into practice. Every text of Scripture and every biblical sermon demands a response. This book is designed to aid the preachers of God’s word to always keep this in view. Many books describe the general process of communicating the meaning of the truth of Scripture, but in this book Mike Fabarez persuasively contends that there is much more which can be done by today’s biblical preachers to study, pray, and proclaim those truths in a manner that brings about the impact that God intends his word to have. This practical and informative book helps to fill the void in many homiletical textbooks, which often fail to put the necessary emphasis on how accurate and Christ-honoring application of the Bible can be achieved.

  • In Defense of the Bible

    $34.99

    In Defense of the Bible gathers exceptional articles by accomplished scholars (Paul Copan, William A. Dembski, Mary Jo Sharp, Darrell L. Bock, etc.), addressing and responding to all of the major contemporary challenges to the divine inspiration and authority of Scripture.

    The book begins by looking at philosophical and methodological challenges to the Bible—questions about whether or not it is logically possible for God to communicate verbally with human beings; what it means to say the Bible is true in response to postmodern concerns about the nature of truth; defending the clarity of Scripture against historical skepticism and relativism.

    Contributors also explore textual and historical challenges—charges made by Muslims, Mormons, and skeptics that the Bible has been corrupted beyond repair; questions about the authorship of certain biblical books; allegations that the Bible borrows from pagan myths; the historical reliability of the Old and New Testaments.

    Final chapters take on ethical, scientific, and theological challenges— demonstrating the Bible’s moral integrity regarding the topics of slavery and sexism; harmonizing exegetical and theological conclusions with the findings of science; addressing accusations that the Christian canon is the result of political and theological manipulation; ultimately defending the Bible as not simply historically reliable and consistent, but in fact the Word of God.

  • Christianity And Wokeness

    $14.99

    In a world that is woke, how many Christians are actually awake? This short, theologically sound primer is a resource for pastors, ministry leaders, community leaders, and other thinking Christians that explains carefully and clearly what Critical Race Theory and wokeness truly are, what the Bible teaches about race and ethnicity, why wokeness is distinct from Christianity and should be rejected, and how the church can work for unity based in the gospel of grace.

    Owen Strachan is a respected Reformed theologian and thought leader who can help Christians:

    *Better understand Critical Race Theory, something very few do;
    *Understand the high stakes–for the church and society at large–of wokeness as a movement;
    *Think through America’s complex past with nuance and sensitivity;
    *Study how God has made humanity one through the imago Dei;
    *Grasp the beauty of the biblical doctrine of ethnicity and race; and
    *Be ready to work for unity in perilous times

  • Reenchanting Humanity : A Theology Of Mankind

    $27.99

    The human race desperately needs to see humanity afresh. We have lost sight of the fact that God made mankind and gave them infinite dignity and worth. In this rigorously biblical and theological study of theocentric anthopology Owen Strachan engages with the major questions of the age, on themes like transgenderism, homosexuality and technology. What does it mean be have been made in the image of God, and to be a covenant people, a blood-bought church of sinners who personally testify to the grace of God that has renewed and reenchanted them?
