  • Gospel According To Luke

  • 2nd Letter To The Corinthians

    $25.00

    Newest volume in the acclaimed Pillar New Testament Commentary series

    The question that Paul sets before the ancient church in Corinth – Do you not recognize that Jesus Christ is in and among you? (2 Cor 13:5) – remains a critical question for the church today. This commentary by Mark Seifrid seeks to hear Paul’s message afresh and communicate it to our time.

    Seifrid offers a unified reading of 2 Corinthians, which has often been regarded as a composite of excerpts and fragments. He argues that Paul’s message is directed at the practical atheism of the Corinthian church – the hidden heresy that assumes God’s saving work in the world may be measured by outward standards of success and achievement.

    Like all of the Pillar volumes, Seifrid’s commentary on 2 Corinthians offers careful grammatical analysis and exegesis with clear pastoral application.

  • Pauls Letter To The Romans

    $29.99

    In keeping with the aims of the Pillar series, Colin Kruse in this commentary explains Romans to serious pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible. Kruse — a well-known evangelical scholar — solidly bases his exegesis on the Greek text, in conversation with scholarly literature, both ancient and modern, and with special attention to the literature of the last thirty years.

    This commentary shows how Paul expounds and defends the gospel against the background of God’s sovereign action as creator, judge, and redeemer of the world. In the process, Kruse elucidates Paul’s teaching about matters of concern in the Roman house churches — issues that remain important today. Kruse’s clarity and economy in dealing with such complex and important matters, along with the other features mentioned above, promise to make this commentary an enduring standard for years to come.

  • Letter To The Philippians

    $32.00

    In this clear, concise exegetical commentary, G. Walter Hansen offers rich exposition of the text of Philippians as well as wisdom and maturity in its application. In so doing he emphasizes partnership – the social and corporate dimensions of community – in the progress of the gospel.

    After a moderately sized bibliography, the introduction takes up the historical setting of the city of Philippi, the nature of the letter, the occasion of the letter, and a preview of two key themes, the gospel of Christ and the community in Christ. The commentary itself considers Philippians in light of these themes, considering the greetings, reports of Gospel ministry, recommendations of two Christ-like servants, and other emphases on the gospel and on partners or servants.

    $34.00

    Using the same brilliant exegesis and sound practical insight found in his previous work, Douglas J. Moo here not only accurately explains the meaning of the Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon, but also applies that meaning to twenty-first-century readers.

He then divides the commentary itself into Letter Opening, Letter Body, and Letter Closing for each book, addressing the introductory thanksgiving of Philemon as well. The volume ends with thorough indexes of names, subjects, scripture references, and extrabiblical literature. Informed, methodologically astute, evangelical, and displaying a careful balance between good scholarship and pastoral concern, The Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon is readily accessible, offering something for everyone – teacher or student, pastor or parishioner, scholar or layperson.

  • Gospel According To Mark

    $42.99

    This new Pillar volume offers exceptional commentary on Mark that clearly shows the second Gospel, though it was a product of the earliest Christian community, to be both relevant and sorely needed in today’s church. Written by a biblical scholar who has devoted thirty years to the study of the second Gospel, this commentary aims primarily to interpret the Gosepl of Mark according to its theological intentions and purposes, especially as they relate to the life and ministry of Jesus and the call to faith and discipleship. Unique features of James Edwards’s approach include clear descriptions of key terms used by Mark and revealing discussion of the Gospel’s literary features, including Mark’s use of the sandwich technique and of imagistic motifs and irony. Edwards also proposes a new paradigm for interpreting the difficult Little Apocalypse of chapter 13, and he argues for a new understanding of Mark’s controversial ending.
