INTRO TO THE INTERTESTAMENTAL$22.99Add to cart
As people finish the last book of the Old Testament they realize when turning to the New Testament that there is a gap of time not addressed by the books in most English Bibles. This period of time, known commonly as the “Intertestamental Period” covers four centuries and the changes and influences of the culture and people throughout the known world was very influential on the setting of the books of the New Testament. In this volume, Dr. Raymond Surburg, long time professor of the Bible and the languages of the Old Testament, presents the history of the Jewish people from Persian times to the fall of Jerusalam in A.D. He offers a survey of the various writings from this period, including the Apocrypha, which was always included in the Bible until the Lutheran Church moved from German to English. He also covers the Greek translation of the Old Testament, the Septuagint, as well as the Pseudepigrapha. While not exhaustive in its treatment, this volume offers a good overview for pastors, teachers and serious students of the Bible who want to understand during the time between Old and New Testament.
HOLMAN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO BIBLICAL GEOGRAPHY
$29.99Add to cart
The Holman Illustrated Guide to Biblical Geography includes more than 200 images and over 50 maps to provide a coherent and meaningful set of pegs on which to hang the events that march across the biblical stage. For many Bible readers (and teachers!), one king, one battle, one story often blurs into the next. A geographical grid provides an objective structure to make sense of the biblical narrative. Historical and cultural geography give hue and texture to what are sometimes seen as rather flat, black-and-white pages of the biblical text.
*Exploring the W orld of the Bible
*Building Blocks of Biblical Geography
*The Land of Ancient Israel: The Southern Regions (Judah/Judea)
*The Land of Ancient Israel: The Central Regions (Israel/Samaria)
*The Land of Ancient Israel: The Northern Regions (Galilee)
*Afterword: Geography of the Heart
Biblical geography has great apologetic value. The biblical writers had to be accurate when presenting geographical material. Unlike some matters of history and doctrine, their assertions about the realities of landforms and climate, or about the relation of one city to another, or about the use of strategic routes could easily be verified both by their first readers as well as by contemporary readers. Verifiable geographic information provides a solid foundation on which to place and evaluate the veracity of other truth claims in the biblical text.

Church History in Plain Language 5th Ed.
$34.99Add to cart
Bruce Shelley’s classic history of the church brings the story of global Christianity into the twenty-first century. Like a skilled screenwriter, Shelley begins each chapter with three elements: characters, setting, plot. Taking readers from the early centuries of the church up through the modern era he tells his readers a story of actual people, in a particular situation, taking action or being acted upon, provides a window into the circumstances and historical context, and from there develops the story of a major period or theme of Christian history. Covering recent events, this book also:
- Details the rapid growth of evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity in the southern hemisphere
- Addresses the decline in traditional mainline denominations
- Examines the influence of technology on the spread of the gospel
- Discusses how Christianity intersects with other religions in countries all over the world
For this fifth edition, Marshall Shelley brought together a team of historians, historical theologians, and editors to revise and update this father’s classic text. The new edition adds important stories of the development of Christianity in Asia, India, and Africa, both in the early church as well as in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It also highlights the stories of women and non-Europeans who significantly influenced the development of Christianity but whose contributions are often overlooked in previous overviews of church history.
This concise book provides an easy-to-read guide to church history with intellectual substance. The new edition of Church History in Plain Language promises to set a new standard for readable church history.
Americas Religious History
In the post-9/11 world, it is not difficult to see how important religion remains in America and around the globe. An older generation of scholars expected that America and the rest of the Western world was headed inexorably toward secularization and the end of religion. America is undoubtedly secular in many ways, and our constitutional order requires a clear distinction between faith communities and government. Yet from the colonial era to the present, American men and women have been, and have remained, a pervasively religious people.
In America’s Religious History, leading historian Thomas S. Kidd traces the theological and ethnic diversity and enduring strength of American religion, with special attention to Christianity and evangelical faith. Interweaving religious history and key events from the larger narrative of American history, the book considers how faith commitments and categories have shaped the nation.
Written with the student in mind, America’s Religious History offers an up-to-date, narrative introduction useful for undergraduate and graduate-level courses on American religion.
General readers wanting to better understand the religious background of American life and politics will also enjoy its engaging and insightful overview.

Story Of Christianity 1
$27.99Add to cart
THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY, VOLUME 1, is an informative, interesting, and consistently readable narrative history. It brings alive the people, dramatic events, and ideas that shaped the first fifteen centuries of the church’s life and thought–including major events outside of Europe, such as the Spanish and Portuguese conquest of the New World. Historian Justo Gonzalez shows how various social, political, and economic movements affected Christianity’s internal growth.
Gonzalez skillfully weaves in relevant details from the lives of prominent figures from the apostles to John Wycliffe, tracing out core theological issues and developments as reflected in the lives and stuggles of leading thinkers within the various traditions of the church. The history of the church, while showing all the characteristics of human history, is much more than the history of an institution or movement, Gonzalez stresses. It is a history of the deeds of the spirit in and through the men and women who have gone before in the faith. THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY demonstrates at each point what new challenges and opportunities faced the church, and how Christians struggled with the various options open to them, thereby shaping the future direction of the church.
THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY will serve as a fascinating introduction to the panoramic history of Christianity for students and teachers of church history, for pastors, and for general readers.
