    Additional Info
    The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of Paul’s greatest evangelistic successes. Yet despite Paul’s having founded the church there, it was full of contention and strife. Dissension ran the gamut from questions about leadership to incest. Some believers were taking fellow Christians to court. There were questions about marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship and spiritual gifts. In response Paul offered to them, and to us, some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love and the resurrection. Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter’s perennial relevance.

    In the book of Acts the story of Jesus begun in the Gospel of Luke broadens into the story of the Holy Spirit, guiding the fledgling church to proclaim the saving reality of Jesus. While attentive to Luke’s roles as a literary artist and theologian, I. Howard Marshall focuses primarily on Luke’s role as a historian. He provides the reader with an accurate, balanced and holistic picture of the church’s monumental first years as it sought to fulfill Christ’s mandate to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth.

  • Letters To The Colossians And To Philemon

    $34.00

    Using the same brilliant exegesis and sound practical insight found in his previous work, Douglas J. Moo here not only accurately explains the meaning of the Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon, but also applies that meaning to twenty-first-century readers. Moo introduces each book with a series of five similar questions: To whom was it written? Who wrote it? When? Why? and What? He then divides the commentary itself into Letter Opening, Letter Body, and Letter Closing for each book, addressing the introductory thanksgiving of Philemon as well. The volume ends with thorough indexes of names, subjects, scripture references, and extrabiblical literature. Informed, methodologically astute, evangelical, and displaying a careful balance between good scholarship and pastoral concern, The Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon is readily accessible, offering something for everyone – teacher or student, pastor or parishioner, scholar or layperson.

    Paul’s epistle to the Romans changed the lives of many great Christian thinkers, including Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley and Karl Barth. However, while Romans has been among the most influential books of the New Testament, it has also been the subject of some of the church’s most heated debates. What is justification by faith? What is the relationship between law and grace? What is God’s ultimate purpose for Israel? Without losing sight of the simplicity of the gospel, F. F. Bruce guides us along the difficult but rewarding paths of this great letter.

  • Romans-Galations (Revised)

    $21.50

    Volume 10 Luke – Acts Volume 11 Romans – Galatians Volume 12 Ephesians – Philemon Volume 13 Hebrews – Revelation To keep pace with current evangelical scholarship and resources, the Gold Medallion Awardwinning Expositor’s Bible Commentaryhas been revised and updated. Continuing the legacy of excellent evangelical scholarship, these volumes offer a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. These commentaries provide pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for expositing and teaching the gospel. The fifty-four contributors-of which twenty-nine are new-represent the very best in evangelical scholarship committed to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible. As in the previous edition, The Expositor’s Bible Commentaryfeatures the full NIV text. But it also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. In addition to its exposition, each book of the Bible has an introduction, outline, and updated bibliography. Notes on textual questions and special problems are correlated with the expository units. Transliteration and translation of Semitic and Greek words make the more technical notes accessible to readers unacquainted with the biblical languages. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, commentators, while stating their own convictions, deal fairly and respectfully with opposing views. Volumes 10, 11, 12, and 13, the first to be published in this revised edition, cover the books Luke through Revelation in the New Testament.

    The visit of the Magi, the Sermon on the Mount, the Great Commission: these are only a few of the well-known passages in Matthew’s Gospel. Yet it begins with a list of unknown names and apparently irrelevant ‘begettings’. The early church may have placed Matthew first in the New Testament because it provides a Christian perspective on the relation between the church and the Jews, an issue that is still important today. R. T. France tackles this and other key issues in the Gospel with clarity, reliability and relevance.

Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
