  • Gospel Of John

    $52.00

    This elegantly written, section-by-section, verse-by-verse commentary gives primary attention to the Gospel of John in its present form rather than to the sources or traditions behind it.

    Since J. Ramsey Michaels takes seriously the Gospel’s claim to be the work of someone very close to Jesus – the disciple whom Jesus loved – he assumes it to be a testimony to events that actually took place in the life of Jesus. At the same time, his commentary places as much (or more) emphasis on the Gospel’s literary character and its theological contribution to a larger Christian community, both in its own time and up to the present. Michaels shows John to be a unified composition, intertwined with but not dependent on the other three Gospels, drawing sometimes on their traditions and at other times on earlier traditions unknown to Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

    Seventeen years in the making, synchronic in approach, reflecting fifty years of classroom teaching, packed with fresh insights, and displaying a great deal of independent judgment, this landmark commentary should prove to be highly useful not only to scholars and students but also to its main target audience of pastors.

    Wherever ethnic rivalries are destroying societies, the book of Galatians calls Christians to express the truth of the gospel in communities where there are no ethnic or social or gender divisions. With this strong admonition, Walter Hansen introduces his IVP New Testament Commentary on Galatians. Unlike many other commentaries, Hansen’s volume highlights not only the individual dimensions of justification by faith but also its social implications. His bold, careful interpretation challenges students and teachers of this important Pauline letter to move beyond merely the question How can I, a sinner, be right before a just and holy God? and to find in Galatians a healing word addressed to the ongoing tensions of race, class and gender–a word worked out in the life of the whole church.

    Nothing cripples a church’s effectiveness like internal strife. In Philippi, Paul addressed a congregation whose private struggles were compounded by opposition and suffering from without. Paul’s strategy was to write them a letter of friendship and moral exhortation, reminding them of their partnership in the gospel, their mutual suffering for the cause of Christ, and their need to stand firm in one spirit. His approach and counsel can serve us well today. In this warm study of Philippians by Gordon Fee, you will discover what this letter meant for its original hearers as well as what it means to us today.

  • Letter To The Philippians

    $32.00

    In this clear, concise exegetical commentary, G. Walter Hansen offers rich exposition of the text of Philippians as well as wisdom and maturity in its application. In so doing he emphasizes partnership – the social and corporate dimensions of community – in the progress of the gospel.

    After a moderately sized bibliography, the introduction takes up the historical setting of the city of Philippi, the nature of the letter, the occasion of the letter, and a preview of two key themes, the gospel of Christ and the community in Christ. The commentary itself considers Philippians in light of these themes, considering the greetings, reports of Gospel ministry, recommendations of two Christ-like servants, and other emphases on the gospel and on partners or servants.

  • 1st And Second Letters To The Thessalonians

    $43.00

    In The First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians Gordon Fee’s first aim is a fresh exposition of the biblical text. He shows the reader what is in the text, then what was meant by the text and what it means. Fee reveals the logic of each argument or narrative before moving on to the details of each verse. He concludes each section with a theological or applicational reflection on the meaning of the text today.

    In order to make his work not only useful, but also understandable, Fee uses diagrams of sentence structure, italics for emphasis, and a listing of points. He explores authorship, the city of Thessalonica, and the occasion for writing for each epistle, restoring 2 Thessalonians to the place it deserves as a full companion to the first letter, rather than merely a tagalong to 1 Thessalonians.

    Like Fee’s previous volumes in this series, this insightful, thoroughly readable commentary on Paul’s two letters of thanksgiving, information, encouragement, and exhortation to the separated, suffering community of Gentile converts in Thessalonica is destined to become the premier work on these books.

    No other writings of Paul provide a greater insight into his missionary methods and message as 1 and 2 Thessalonians, says Leon Morris. Here we see Paul the missionary at Paul the pastor, faithfully proclaiming the gospel of God, concerned for the welfare of his converts, scolding them, praising them, guiding them exhorting them, teaching them; thrilled with their progress, disappointed in their slowness . . . Especially important is the teaching of these Epistles on eschatology.

    The book of Hebrews is quite challenging, claims commentary author Donald Guthrie, since there are many open questions about authorship, historical setting and audience. More than most New Testament books, Hebrews requires detailed explanations of the background allusions within it, which reference the priesthood of Christ being directly linked to the old Levitical order. Above all, Hebrews deals with the important question, How can we approach God?

  • Philippians

    $17.00

    Paul’s letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul’s joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. Ralph Martin draws out these themes.
