  • Unwavering Resolve Of Jonathan Edwards

    $8.99

    Jonathan Edwards is well known as perhaps the greatest theologian the United States has ever produced. He is equally noted for his preaching and writing. But in this Long Line Profile, Dr. Steven J. Lawson considers the unique focus and commitment with which Edwards sought to live out the Christian faith.

    Lawson examines Edwards’ life through the lens of the seventy resolutions he penned in his late teens, shortly after his conversion, which cover everything from glorifying God to repenting of sin to managing time. Drawing on Edwards’ writings, as well as scholarly accounts of Edwards’ life and thought, Lawson shows how Edwards sought to live out these lofty goals he set for the management of his walk with Christ. In Edwards’ example, he finds helpful instruction for all believers.

  • Answering Jewish Objections To Jesus 1 (Reprinted)

    $10.97

    1. General Objections
    2. Historical Objections

    Additional Info
    What kind of answers hold fast in Jewish Christian apologetics? Answers that are fair. Answers that are detailed. And above all, answers that respond to actual objections. In the first of three volumes of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, Michael Brown provides defensible answers. He addresses the same arguments that arise in his dialogue and debate with friends, rabbis, and anti-missionaries. Some objections include:
    – I was born a Jew and I will die a Jew.
    – I won’t betray my ancestors.
    – If Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, why isn’t there peace on earth?
    – Christians have always hated and persecuted the Jewish people!

    Brown knows all about such objections. At age sixteen, he discovered Jesus was the Jewish Messiah, and it changed his life. Called to defend his new faith, Brown went on to master Hebrew, earning his Ph.D. in Semitic languages. In the past decades he has established himself as a leading Jewish Christian apologist.

    Brown brings together his learning and his love for his people to answer thirty-five commonly heard objections. He provides believers and seekers alike with honest, spiritually focused answers, thoroughly documented with notes.

    The Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments follows the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels and the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters as the third in a celebrated series of reference works on the Bible. Picking up where the previous volumes left off, this volume includes in its scope the book of Acts, the general epistles of Peter, James, Jude and John, and the books of Hebrews and Revelation. This Dictionary is without peer in its in-depth coverage of the most neglected books of the New Testament.

    In addition to its coverage of this New Testament literature, a unique and valuable feature of this dictionary is its extended coverage of developments in early Christianity through A. D. 150. Some articles, such as those on each of the apostolic fathers, focus exclusively on this post-apostolic period. But nearly all topical articles take into consideration the writings of the apostolic fathers. Readers will enjoy a deeper and expanded understanding of how orthodox Christianity continued and developed in the years just following the New Testament era. No other single-volume reference work provides comparable coverage and assessment of the early patristic era and its theology.

  • Trinitarian Controversy (Reprinted)

    $18.99

    13 Chapters

    Additional Info
    This volume is a collection of primary texts that illustrates the lengthy process by which the early Christians reached a coherent doctrine of God. The period under discussion, generally known as the trinitarian controversy dates from around AD 319, the preaching of Arius, to about AD 419, the completion of Augustine’s On the Trinity. The documents reveal the unfolding of the theological process in which the church was seeking to distinguish its faith from paganism and to affirm the salvific character of its message.
