  • Systematic Theology Second Edition

    $35.99

    The most widely-used text of the last 25 years in its discipline, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem has been thoroughly revised and expanded (all 57 chapters) for the first time while retaining the features that have made it the standard in its field: clear explanations, an emphasis on each doctrine’s scriptural basis, and practical applications to daily life.

    With several hundred pages of new content, this new edition now includes the following distinctive features.

    *Updated, fuller analysis of several recent controversies within evangelicalism, including the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity, the question of God’s atemporal eternity, the role of women in the church, seeker-sensitive churches, miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary worship music.

    *New, thoughtful critiques of open theism, the new perspective on Paul, Molinism (or middle knowledge), Free Grace theology, and the preterist view of Christ’s second coming

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on the clarity of Scripture

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on creation and evolution (including a longer critique of theistic evolution)

    *New discussion of how biblical inerrancy applies to some specific problem verses in the Gospels

    *Additional material respectfully explaining evangelical Protestant differences with Roman Catholicism, Protestant liberalism, and Mormonism.

    *Completely updated bibliographies

    *All Scripture quotations updated from RSV to ESV

    *An explanation of why monogenes in John 3:16 and elsewhere should be translated as only begotten rather than merely only (this is a change from the first edition)

    *A contemporary worship song added at the end of each chapter (while retaining the traditional hymns as well)

    *Numerous other updates and corrections

    Part of the brilliance of Systematic Theology over the years has been its simplicity and ease of use. Each chapter follows the same structure. First, there is discussion of the doctrine being considered, such as justification or the Trinity or the deity of Christ. An explanation of where that doctrine is supported in the Bible and possible objections follow. Personal application and key terms to know for personal growth are then provided. Chapters also include a scripture memory passage, references to other literature on the topic, and suggested hymns and worship songs.

  • Ascension Of Christ

    $10.99

    The Ascension is essential to the gospel

    The good news of Jesus includes his life, death, resurrection, and future return–but what about his ascension? Though often neglected or misunderstood, the ascension is integral to the gospel.

    In The Ascension of Christ, Patrick Schreiner argues that Jesus’ work would be incomplete without his ascent to God’s right hand. Not only a key moment in the gospel story, Jesus’ ascension was necessary for his present ministry in and through the church. Schreiner argues that Jesus’ residence in heaven marks a turning point in his three-fold offices of prophet, priest, and king. As prophet, Jesus builds the church and its witness. As priest, he intercedes before the Father. As king, he rules over all.

    A full appreciation of the ascension is essential for understanding the Bible, Christian doctrine, and Christ’s ongoing work in the world.

  • Trinitarian Theology : Theological Models And Doctrinal Application

    $14.99

    The heart of Christianity is trinitarian.

    The subject matter of Trinitarian Theology casts a long shadow over our faith. The relationship between the Father, the Son, and the Spirit is central to the salvation story. The Trinity is central to Christianity, for the vibrancy of our churches, and for the clarity of our witness in the world. In Trinitarian Theology, Bruce Ware, Malcon B. Yarnell III, Matthew Y. Emerson, and Luke Stamps discuss issues such as the eternal functional subordination of the Son, the nature of the God-human relationship, and theological methods for forming the doctrine of the Trinity. This is a discussion of great importance, offered by scholars who represent varying views held by today’s Southern Baptist scholars.

  • Scientism And Secularism

    $11.19

    Scientism-the view that hard sciences such as chemistry, biology, physics, and astronomy are the only legitimate sources of genuine knowledge about reality-has played a central role in the increasing secularization of society. But this belief marginalizes religion and makes it merely a matter of private opinion. This book by celebrated philosopher of science J. P. Moreland exposes the inadequacy of scientism by demonstrating its self-defeating nature and 7 important truths about our world that science can never explain. It then equips Christians to recognize and respond to scientism’s harmful presence in different aspects of culture, emboldening their witness to biblical Christianity. Finally, as an alternative to scientism, Moreland presents evidence for how an integration of theology and science is the only feasible path forward.

  • Deity Of Christ

    $20.51

    The biblical teaching about the deity of Christ is a precious truth and foundational to the Christian faith. It has been called the most distinctively Christian doctrine of all-one that must be taught and preserved.

    With this in mind, Robert Peterson, Christopher Morgan, Andreas Kostenberger, Steve Wellum, Gerald Bray, Alan Gomes, Ray Ortlund Jr., Stephen Nichols, and J. Nelson Jennings have collaborated to develop a theology of Christ’s divinity across multiple disciplines. Combining first-rate evangelical scholarship with rich application, their work examines this central doctrine from contemporary, historical, biblical, systematic, apologetic, and missional perspectives.

    This accessible volume-the third in the noted Theology in Community series-guides readers to the significance of Christ’s deity across the Old and New Testaments, in Johannine literature, in popular culture and church history, and among cults and world religions. With its keen theological insight and straightforward application, this volume will give pastors, students, and educated readers a clear and useful treatment of the deity of Christ.

  • Deep Things Of God 2nd Edition

    $14.99

    The doctrine of the Trinity is widely taught and believed by evangelicals, but rarely is it fully understood or celebrated. Systematic theologian Fred Sanders, in The Deep Things of God, shows why we ought to embrace the doctrine of the Trinity wholeheartedly and without reserve, as a central concern of evangelical theology.

    Sanders demonstrates, with passion and conviction, that the doctrine of the Trinity is grounded in the gospel itself. Written accessibly, The Deep Things of God examines the centrality of the Trinity in our salvation and the Trinity’s presence in the reading of the Bible and prayer. Readers will understand that a robust doctrine of the Trinity has massive implications for their lives. Indeed, recognizing the work of the Trinity in the gospel changes everything, restoring depth to prayer, worship, Bible study, missions, tradition, and our understanding of Christianity’s fundamental doctrines.

  • Free Grace Theology

    $14.54

    What does real, saving faith actually entail? The New Testament repeatedly emphasizes the need for repentance from sin and accompanying good works as evidence of true belief. However, as theologian Wayne Grudem argues in this book, the teachings of the Free Grace movement-which deny that good works need to be present in the life of the justified Christian-undermine the Bible’s teaching regarding saving faith. Drawing from the works of key leaders within the movement, Grudem raises five biblical concerns he has with the Free Grace movement and critiques its central teachings from Scripture and historic Protestantism. In doing so, he helps all Christians understand the true nature of saving faith.
