    In NEITHER POVERTY NOR RICHES, Craig Blomberg asks what the Bible has to say to these issues. He avoids easy answers, and instead seeks a comprehensive biblical theology of possessions. Beginning with the groundwork laid by the Old Testament and the ideas developed in the intertestamental period, he draws out what the whole New Testament has to say on the subject and finally offers conclusions and applications reverant to the modern world.

    We live in a world shot through with evil. The twentieth century has witnessed suffering and human cruelty on a scale never before imagined. Yet, paradoxically, in recent years the doctrine of original sin has suffered neglect and ridicule.

    In this philosophically sophisticated treatment of the biblical evidence for original sin, Henri Blocher offers a robust response. Interacting with the best theological thinking on the subject, this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume shows that while the nature of original sin is a mystery-even a riddle-only belief in it makes sense of evil and wrongdoing.

    After a general survey of the biblical evidence, Blocher moves on to discuss the two key texts. First, he considers the relation of the Eden story of Genesis 2 and 3 to modern scientific, literary and theological thinking. Then, he offers a new and groundbreaking interpretation of Romans 5, where Paul discusses Christ and Adam. From this exegetical foundation, he goes on to show how the doctrine of original sin makes sense of the paradoxes of human existence. In the final chapter, he discusses the intellectual difficulties that some feel remain with the doctrine itself.

    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

  • Men And Women Equal Yet Different (Student/Study Guide)

    $7.07

    Written for those who want to know more about the biblical teachings on gender but don’t have time to read lengthy tomes on the subject, this small book is also perfect for high school and college students. It addresses one of the most significant changes that has occurred in human history: the gender revolution. Like the rest of society, Christianity has been permanently affected by this change. In reality, the gender transformation taking place within the worldwide Christian community is a radical departure from biblical, apostolic Christianity. Men and Women: Equal Yet Different presents the complementarian perspective that men and women are equal yet different, and introduces the key terms, arguments, Scripture passages, and research related to this position.

  • Protestant Biblical Interpretation (Reprinted)

    $11.97

    The Prophets of Israel has established itself as a reliable introduction to prophecy and prophets in Israel. Students will now be able to acquire this useful textbook in a more affordable paperback edition.

    According to Leon Wood, a continuity exists between Israel’s earlier nonwriting prophets and its later prophets. Both must be studied to acquire a thorough understanding of Israelite prophecy.

    This assertion, for which the author of this study marshals considerable evidence, underlies the entire text of this significant volume. Instead of concentration upon the prophetic writings, the author focuses on the prophets themselves, both those who recorded their messages and those who did not. A study of the [prophets] themselves is most worthwhile, he writes, for when one sees them as people, in the day and circumstances in which they lived, he has a distinct advantage for understanding what they wrote.

    The book begins with an informative introduction to the Israelite prophets represented in the canon; the author then discusses the nonwriting prophets of both the premonarchy era (including Miriam, Deborah, and Samuel) and the monarchy period (including Gad, Nathan, Ahijah, Iddo, Shemaiah, Azariah, Hanani, Jehu, Jahaziel, Eliezer, Elijah, Micaiah, Zechariah, and Elisha).

  • Jesus Crisis : The Inroads Of Historical Criticism Into Evangelical Scholar

    $22.53

    Manufactured On Demand Title

    Examines the inroads of historical criticism into evangelical scholarship. Though evangelicals reject many extreme conclusions of liberal scholars, some have adopted their same methodology in the interpretation of the Synoptic Gospels, creating a crisis in evangelical scholarship. The authors show how adopting such methodologies are affecting the next generation of pastors, teachers, and scholars.

  • Covenant : Gods Purpose Gods Plan

    $4.97

    As one of the most prominent themes in Scripture, the covenant is crucial to all Christian theological systems, from dispensationalism to covenant theology to theonomy to liberation theology. One would think that by now all controversies have been exhausted, but an issue of this magnitude can never finally be laid to rest. Because disagreements persist, there is room for yet another attempt to study the covenant and improve our understanding of it. This book proposes that the path toward an evangelical consensus is not to be found in building another modified systematic theology, but in a biblical theology approach. Grounded in this approach, John Walton’s perspective is that while the covenant is characteristically redemptive, formulated along the lines of ancient treaties, and ultimately soteric, it is essentially revelatory. This view in turn has implications regarding the continuity or discontinuity of the covenant phases, the conditionality of the covenant, and our understanding of the people of God. And this ultimately affects the way the Old Testament is preached and taught. Walton’s thesis is an important contribution to the discussion of the covenant and the attempts to find common ground among evangelicals of diverse theological traditions.

  • All The Prayers Of The Bible

    $12.85

    The believer will find in All the Prayers of the Bible not just a recital of well-known and well-worn phrases, but an outpouring of the heart to God. The passion and the beauty of prayer (as well as its necessity and efficacy) have never been so happily assembled as in this remarkable devotional. This unique book has become a spiritual classic and study book that will enrich any prayer life. All the Prayers of the Bible contains hundreds of seed thoughts for sermons-and inspiration for Sunday school and Bible study teachers, and other Christians alike. Dr. Herbert Lockyer not only summarizes all the prayers of the Bible, but also analyzes what each book of the Bible tells us about prayer and its role in human life and history.

  • Testaments Of Love A Print On Demand Title

    $8.97

    Using the same exacting scholarship that has characterized his other books and commentaries, Leon Morris here offers a thorough and instructive analysis of love in the Bible – a topic that he believes has been neglected and misinterpreted by most biblical scholars.

    Morris is particularly concerned with eliminating the cultural and personal biases he finds in many interpretations of love in the Bible. Striving for a truly biblical interpretation, he scrupulously examines the various Hebrew and Greek forms of the word in both the Old and New Testaments, concluding that love is the basis of God’s dealing with men and that Christians ought to demonstrate more authentic biblical love within and without the Christian community.

    In the Old Testament, claims Morris, God’s loving actions are very apparent, even though the word love is seldom used. He points out that even in the prophetic books God obviously loves his people despite their frequent disobedience. And in the New Testament, the definitive expression of God’s love on the cross demonstrates that God’s love is not simply a beautiful but detached emotion – it is a love that pays a price.

    Other topics discussed by Morris include natural affection, friendship, passion, eros, and agape. Throughout the study, he refers to specific biblical passages and supplements the text with abundant footnotes that summarize and evaluate helpful additional information from scores of sources.

  • Words And Works Of Jesus Christ

    $19.98

    The life of Jesus Christ takes on fresh clarity and meaning in this masterful work by Dwight Pentecost. The words, the miracles, and overarching message of the Messiah come alive in flowing and detailed chronology, set against the cultural, political, and religious setting of his day. You’ll gain new understanding of why Jesus came, how he operated, and what he accomplished. Above all, you’ll acquire a deeper appreciation for the love that guided his path, beginning in a manger in Bethlehem, leading through three and a half years of ministry that ended abruptly at the cross on Golgotha, and blazing forth in eternal triumph at the resurrection. Drawing liberally on the works of others who have written about Christ, such as Alfred Edersheim, J. W. Shepherd, W. Graham Scroggie, and Frederick Faraar, Dr. Pentecost reveals in his own writing a familiarity with the subject that comes from years of teaching. Yet he writes, not as one who knows all there is to know about Christ, but with the restraint of one who knows that Jesus is to be worshiped and adored as the great King, and that no book can do more than begin to tell all the wonders of his being and his love.
