  • Seeking The Face Of God

    $13.89

    One of the greatest preachers of the 20th century explores lessons that can be learned from the Psalms.

    There are many great messages in the Psalms. Each is written by a man of God, opening his heart before the Lord. The palmist were real people who experienced real struggles and found comfort and joy in the Lord, whom they were eager to praise. Their words offer us strategies for living the Christian life.

    In Seeking the Face of God, Martyn Lloyd-Jones teaches that rather than simply reading the Psalms and feeling emotionally stirred by the beautiful language, we should meditate on the messages the psalmists with to share with us. Lloyd-Jones gives practical advice on how to apply these messages to our lives.

    They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha. . . . And they crucified him. . . . Some women were watching from a distance. (Mark 15:22, 24, 40).

    At the climax of Mark’s Gospel, Jesus of Nazareth is put to death on a Roman cross. The text tells us that, in that lonely hour, a group of women were watching the crucifixion from a distance. In a sense, they are given a stance toward the cross that we can share.

    In this exploration of Mark’s Gospel, Peter G. Bolt looks at why the cross is so prominent in the narrative, asks what contribution Mark’s teaching can make to our understanding of the atonement, and shows how this teaching can inform, correct and enrich our own preaching of the gospel in the contemporary world. This New Studies in Biblical Theogy volume helps us to stand in wonder before the God who has come close to us in the cross of Jesus Christ and to live in hope for the better things to come.

    In this stimulating exposition, Stephen Dempster argues that, despite its undoubted literary diversity, the Hebrew Bible possesses a remarkable structural and conceptual unity. The various genres and books are placed within a comprehensive narrative framework which provides an overarching literary and historical context.

    The many texts contribute to this larger text, and find their meaning and significance within its story of ‘dominion and dynasty’, which ranges from Adam to the Son of Man to David, and to a coming Davidic king.

    The biblical theme of spiritual adultery stands in all its bluntness for a deeply offensive sin–the unfaithfulness of God’s covenant people in departing from Yahweh, their husband, and going after false gods.
    Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. begins by showing how the Genesis vision of human marriage provides the logic and coherent network of meanings for the story of Israel’s relationship with Yahweh. He traces the specific theme of marital unfaithfulness, first through the historical books of the Old Testament and then through the prophets, particularly Hosea, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Turning to the New Testament he also shows how the sad story of Israel’s adultery is transcended by the vision of ultimate reality in Christ and his church–the Bridegroom and the Bride.

    This beautifully written book, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, is marked by careful exegesis and deep sensitivity. It is that rare thing–a work of scholarship that calls readers to love God with an ardor that suffuses all of life.

  • Plowshares And Pruning Hooks

    $15.99

    What are we to make of Isaiah’s image of Mount Zion as the highest of the mountains, or Zechariah’s picture of the Mount of Olives split in two, or Daniel’s “beast rising out of the sea” or Revelation’s “great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns”? How can Peter claim that on the day of Pentecost the prophecy of Joel was being fulfilled, with signs in heaven and wonders on earth, the sun turned to darkness and the moon to blood? The language and imagery of biblical prophecy has been the source of puzzlement for many Christians and a point of dispute for some. How ironic that is! For the prophets and seers were the wordsmiths of their time. They took pains to speak God’s word clearly and effectively to their contemporaries. How should we, as citizens of the twenty-first century, understand the imagery of this ancient biblical literature? Are there any clues in the texts themselves, any principles we can apply as we read these important but puzzling biblical texts? D. Brent Sandy carefully considers the language and imagery of prophecy and apocalyptic, how it is used, how it is fulfilled within Scripture, and how we should read it against the horizon of our future. Clearly and engagingly written, Plowshares and Pruning Hooks is the kind of book that gives its readers a new vantage point from which to view the landscape of prophetic and apocalyptic language and imagery.

    Be thankful (Colossians 3:15) is a recurring exhortation in the letters of the apostle Paul. No other New Testament writer gives such a sustained emphasis on thanksgiving-and yet, major modern studies of Paul fail to wrestle with it.

    David Pao aims to rehabilitate this theme in this comprehensive and accessible study, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume. He shows how, for Paul, thanksgiving is grounded in the covenantal traditions of salvation history. To offer thanks to God is to live a life of worship and to anticipate the future acts of God, all in submission to the lordship of Christ. Ingratitude to God is idolatry. Thanksgiving functions as a link between theology, including eschatology, and ethics.

    Here Pao provides clear insights into the passion of an apostle who never fails to insist on the significance of both the gospel message and the response this message demands.

    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.

    The New Testament finds many ways to depict Christians’ relationships to their Lord. They are his disciples, sons, daughters, and friends. But it is perhaps too little recognized that they are also his slaves. This study sets out to uncover what it means to be a slave of Christ. Murray Harris begins by assessing the nature of actual slavery in the Greco-Roman world and the New Testament’s attitude towards it. Drawing insights from this, he goes on to unfold the metaphor of slavery to Christ. Among the topics discussed are slavery and spiritual freedom, lordship, ownership, and privilege. Slave of Christ is a model of good biblical theology, providing insights both for further study of the Bible and for practical application. It will be appreciated in both church and academy.
