    The New Testament finds many ways to depict Christians’ relationships to their Lord. They are his disciples, sons, daughters, and friends. But it is perhaps too little recognized that they are also his slaves. This study sets out to uncover what it means to be a slave of Christ. Murray Harris begins by assessing the nature of actual slavery in the Greco-Roman world and the New Testament’s attitude towards it. Drawing insights from this, he goes on to unfold the metaphor of slavery to Christ. Among the topics discussed are slavery and spiritual freedom, lordship, ownership, and privilege. Slave of Christ is a model of good biblical theology, providing insights both for further study of the Bible and for practical application. It will be appreciated in both church and academy.

    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.

  • Gods Lesser Glory


    What if God doesn’t know everything about the future? What if, as open theists claim, God can only rely on His best guess about tomorrow – just as we do? This book carefully summarizes and critiques this dangerous doctrine from a thoroughly biblical perspective, showing how open theism undermines God’s glory and our trust in Him.

  • Answering Jewish Objections To Jesus 2 (Reprinted)


    In this second of three volumes of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, Brown takes up twenty-eight of the most weighty objections raised against Jesus. These are real questions and real answers, formed by years of dialogue with rabbis and religious Jews. Some objections include:
    – Jews don’t believe in the Trinity. We believe in one God, not three.
    – God doesn’t have a son.
    – The Christian concept of salvation is contrary to the Hebrew Bible and Jewish tradition. Jews don’t need saving.
    – Jews don’t believe in a suffering Messiah.

    Brown shows how New Testament teaching on the nature of God and the divinity of the Messiah is in harmony with the Hebrew Scriptures, how blood sacrifices joined with repentance were the heart and soul of the Torah’s system of atonement, and how Yeshua fulfilled a lofty Jewish concept, bringing atonement to the world through his death.

    As with Brown’s earlier volume, this rich resource comes thoroughly referenced with notes and includes a glossary, subject index, and index of Scripture and other ancient writings. It is a necessity for anyone involved in Jewish-Christian dialogue or apologetics.

    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

    Joy at the End of the Tether: The Inscrutable Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

    In this lively reading of Ecclesiastes, Doug Wilson reveals its powerful lessons of vanity, joy, celebration, and the sovereignty of God. This is a great book, so we can’t figure out why it hasn’t sold better-especially since it was Doug’s favorite to write.

    Most Christians view the book of Ecclesiastes as an enigma, a puzzle from which we might draw a few aphorisms but little else. Douglas Wilson’s fresh, lucid treatment of this wonderful book enables us to see that its message is not a confused riddle but an incisive indictment of the wisdom of this world.

  • Providence And Prayer


    If God has already decided how things will turn out, what use is it to pray? On the other hand, if our freedom limits God’s ability to achieve his wishes all the time, how much could he do even if we asked for help? How much does God know about the future, and how does this factor into the way our prayers affect the outcome? And how does God’s relationship to time enter into the whole question? With such questions in mind, Terrance Tiessen presents ten views of providence and prayer and then wraps things up with his own proposal. The result is a book that puts us at the intersection between theological reflection and our life and conversation with God. It prods and sharpens our understanding, making us better theologians and better prayers.
