  • True Woman 201

    $13.99

    Having a talented designer come in and create a new look for a home or restaurant is a popular topic of TV reality shows. These renovation shows are a great illustration for the object of this study. The Lord is the ultimate Designer. And He has a divine design for womanhood. He wants to come in and do a radical renovation of your heart. He wants to change you from the inside out. If you let Him, He’ll give you an extreme makeover . . . a brand new interior design.

    In 201, we’ll turn to the New Testament, to the book of Titus, to focus on some important elements of redeemed womanhood. Each week of this True Woman 201 study examines one of the ten design elements of womanhood drawn from the Titus 2. The weeks are each divided into five lessons leading to a group time of sharing and digging deeper into God’s Word.

    Our world is multi-cultural, multi-religious, multi-philosophical. It ranges from fundamental monotheism to do-it-yourself spirituality to strident atheism. How can we authentically and effectively present the message of Jesus the Messiah in such a pluralistic and often relativistic context? When Paul visited Athens, as told in the book of Acts, he found an equally multi-cultural and multi-religious setting. From Jews to Gentiles, elite to poor, slaves to slave owners, from olive-skinned Gentiles to dark-skinned Ethiopians–the Greco-Roman world was a dynamic mixture. Religions practices were also wide and varied, with the Imperial cult of Emperor worship being the most prominent. Many also frequented the temples for the traditional Greek pantheon, and participated in the secret rituals of the Mystery Religions. Philosopher Paul Copan and New Testament scholar Kenneth Litwak team up to show how Paul’s example found in Acts 17 provide a practical model that still fits today. They uncover the cultural and religious background of this key episode in the Apostle’s career. With equal facility they show what it means for us who live in an age of competing beliefs and value systems.

  • New Covenant Ministry Of The Holy Spirit

    $13.49

    He is our Helper, Comforter, and Counselor, and without Him we cannot live the Christian life. Yet His role in believers’ lives is at the heart of one of the church’s most difficult and controversial issues.

    It’s significantly easier to recognize that the Day of Pentecost changed the role of the Holy Spirit in the lives of God’s people than to clearly identify how that role changed. At times the biblical data seems puzzling, and scholars have often confused the scriptural teaching about the Holy Spirit by isolating Bible verses from their context and elevating experience over doctrine.

    In this revised edition of The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit, Larry Pettegrew does thorough and careful exegesis to build an accurate and meaningful biblical theology of the Holy Spirit. The author is also careful to emphasize genuine spirituality by including a discussion of the filling, fruit, and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

  • Anxious For Nothing

    $13.27

    So many things to worry about and so little time to worry! Christians obviously are not immune to the troubles of life, and when troubles do come, we’re urged to rise above them and experience peace that passes understanding. But how, in day-to-day life, does that really happen?

    While numerous books have been written on overcoming anxiety, Anxious for Nothing goes beyond pop psychology’s temporary cures by returning us to our only true source of comfort and victory: Scripture.

  • Ephesians

    $29.99

    Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, this series brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The ZECNT series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor. In this volume, Clinton Arnold offer pastors, students, and teachers a focused resource for reading Ephesians. Through the use of graphic representations of translations, succinct summaries of main ideas, exegetical outlines and other features, Arnold present Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians with precision and accuracy. Because of this series’ focus on the textual structure of the scriptures, readers will better understand the literary elements of Ephesians, comprehend the author’s revolutionary goals, and ultimately discovering their vital claims upon the church today.

  • Attitudes Of A Transformed Heart (Student/Study Guide)

    $10.98

    Christians and non-Christians alike often embrace a low view of God, and consequently a casual view of sin and Scripture. This low view of God is reflected in their attitudes about God, their attitudes about Scripture, and their attitudes of the heart. This book is about being transformed by the renewing of your mind and not being conformed to this world (Romans 12:2).
    Your Heart is who you are on the inside. It is what you think, your motives, and your desires. Our hearts have been conformed to the world’s way of thinking. Paul wrote, And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind… (Romans 12:2). It takes grace from God and work on our part for our minds to be transformed to think God-honoring thoughts and to truly discern unbiblical philosophies.
    If you have a teachable heart, this book will help you truly honor God by what you think. Study questions are at the end of each chapter.
