  • Parables : Jesus’s Friendly Subversive Speech


    A comprehensive study of Jesus’ parables that emphasizes personal reflection and application

    Jesus’ parables used familiar situations to convey deep spiritual truths in ways that are provocative and subversive of the status quo. Prayerfulness was pictured by a persistent widow. The joy of salvation in the homecoming of a lost son. Love of neighbor by a marginalized Samaritan. If we’re not careful, we can easily miss details in the parables that reveal their subtle meanings as well as their contemporary relevance.

    Drawing on scholarship on the parables as well as theological, pastoral, and practical insights, Douglas Webster guides the reader through each of Jesus’ parables, pointing out the important nuances that allow us to understand them and be transformed by them. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter can be used for personal or group study, and an appendix for pastors provides guidance for preaching the parables. Pastors, Bible teachers, and serious students of Scripture will find this tour through Jesus’ parabolic teaching to be a feast for both the mind and the soul.

  • Letters For The Church


    The Catholic Epistles often get short shrift. Tucked into a few pages near the back of our Bibles, these books are sometimes referred to as the non-Pauline epistles or concluding letters, maybe getting lumped together with Hebrews and Revelation. Yet these letters, Darian Lockett argues, are treasures hidden in plain sight, and it’s time to give them the attention they deserve. In Letters for the Church, Lockett reveals how the Catholic Epistles provide a unique window into early Christian theology and practice. Based on evidence from the early church, he contends that the seven letters of James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude were accepted into the canon as a collection and should be read together. Here Lockett introduces the context and content of the Catholic Epistles while emphasizing how all seven letters are connected. Each chapter outlines the author, audience, and genre of one of the epistles, traces its flow of thought, and explores shared themes with the other Catholic Epistles. The early church valued the Catholic Epistles for multiple reasons: they defend orthodox faith and morals against the challenges of heretics, make clear that Christianity combines belief with action, and round out the New Testament witness to Christian faith and life. By introducing the coherent vision of these seven epistles, Letters for the Church helps us rediscover these riches. Continue Reading Letters For The Church

  • Philippians A Biblical Study


    Internationally renowned author and Bible teacher Joyce Meyer provides a close study on Philippians, emphasizing the true joy that comes from serving others through Christ.

    Paul’s letter to the people at Philippi serves as a reminder that if we search for joy in possessions, places, or people, we will always come up short. True, lasting joy comes only through faith in Jesus Christ, living in harmony with His followers, and serving others in the name of Christ. The life lived by the Philippians is still attainable today. In her comprehensive approach, Joyce Meyer takes a deep dive into well-known and beloved verses, identifying key truths and incorporating room for personal reflection.

    Joyce’s Philippians provides a key study tool that will help you develop a stronger relationship with God. If you take time to examine His word, you’ll see how much He loves you and how much He desires that you live a joyful, content life on earth! Continue Reading Philippians A Biblical Study

  • Galatians A Biblical Study


    Walk the path of holiness, stir your faith in God, and break free from the bonds of a sinful nature with Joyce Meyer’s Galatians commentary, featuring inspiring questions and space for your reflections.

    Paul’s letter to the church at Galatia speaks largely to how important it was to Paul that the people embrace unity in Christ, no matter their differences. Galatians teaches that we’re only justified by faith in Christ only and encourages us to pursue a life of holiness, not in our own strength, but in the knowledge of God’s empowering grace in our lives.

    In this comprehensive study tool, Joyce Meyer offers an in-depth look at Galatians and emphasizes that we are not only saved by faith, we must learn to live by faith as well. Continue Reading Galatians A Biblical Study

  • Marys Voice In The Gospel Of John


    John’s gospel has always been recognized as different from the other three. What makes it different? According to tradition, Jesus on the cross entrusted his mother, Mary, to John. She was taken into his household, and they lived together for about thirty years, eventually moving to Ephesus together. During that time, John was preaching and finding ways to represent the life of Jesus to others. Would his conversations with Mary about Jesus have had any influence on him?

    In this book, Michael Pakaluk, a philosopher and classical scholar at The Catholic University of America, explores the fresh and startling thesis that Mary’s ‘voice’ can be heard throughout John’s gospel, in the incidents that were chosen, in the way they were presented, and in the themes that become prominent. Drawing on the Christian feminism of Edith Stein, among others, he discerns in the gospel of John a presentation of the life of Christ richly shaped by Mary’s point of view as virgin, mother, daughter of God, and spouse.

    Pakaluk develops his argument through interpretive essays and notes, keyed to a beautiful and fresh translation, which will be appreciated and lauded as much as his translation of Mark’s gospel in The Memoirs of St Peter. Continue Reading Marys Voice In The Gospel Of John

  • Telling Gods Story


    How well do you know His story?

    By the time a Christian reaches young adulthood, he is likely to be quite familiar with every major story in the Bible, but not from having studied them in any particular order.

    Ask an average Bible student to arrange certain characters and events chronologically, and the results are telling.

    Telling God’s Story looks closely at the Bible from its beginning in Genesis to its conclusion in Revelation. By approaching Scripture as one purposefully flowing narrative, emphasizing the inter-connectedness of the text, veteran college professors Preben Vang and Terry G. Carter reinforce the Bible’s greatest teachings and help readers in their own ability to share God’s story effectively with others.

    Updated to include notes on biblical theology and a new section on the intertestamental period, this third edition of Telling God’s Story is ideal for Christians seeking to grow in their understanding of God’s word! Continue Reading Telling Gods Story

  • Ministry Of Women In The New Testament


    Respected scholar Dorothy Lee considers evidence from the New Testament and early church to show that women’s ministry is confirmed by the biblical witness. Her comprehensive examination explores the roles women played in the Gospels and the Pauline corpus, with a particular focus on passages that have been used in the past to limit women’s ministry. She argues that women in the New Testament were not only valued as disciples but also given leadership roles, which has implications for the contemporary church.

  • Conspicuous In His Absence


    In the biblical canon, two books lack any explicit reference to the name of God: Song of Songs and Esther. What is the nature of God as revealed in texts that don’t use his name? Exploring the often overlooked theological connections between these two Old Testament books, Chloe T. Sun takes on the challenges of God’s absence and explores how we think of God when he is perceived to be silent.

    In the biblical canon, two books lack any explicit reference to the name of God: Song of Songs and Esther. God’s peculiar absence in these texts is unsettling, both for theological discourse and for believers considering implications for their own lived experience. Chloe T. Sun takes on the challenges of God’s absence by exploring the often overlooked theological connections between these two Old Testament books. In Conspicuous in His Absence, Sun examines and reflects on the Song of Songs and Esther using theological interpretation. She addresses three main questions: What is the nature of God as revealed in texts that don’t use his name? How do we think of God when he is perceived to be absent? What should we do when God is silent or hidden? The experience of God’s absence or silence is an important part of the human condition. By exploring the distinct themes and perspectives of Song of Songs and Esther, as well as how they’ve been received in Jewish and Christian history, Sun demonstrates how both books serve as counter texts to the depiction of God and his work in the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures. Thus both contribute to a fuller picture of who God is and what it means to know him. Continue Reading Conspicuous In His Absence

  • Servant Of The Lord And His Servant People


    It is often recognized that the title servant is applied to key figures throughout the Bible, culminating in Jesus Christ.

    In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume Matthew Harmon carefully traces this theme from Genesis to Revelation with the intention of seeing how earlier servants point forward to the ultimate Servant. While this servant theme certainly is significant in its own right throughout redemptive history, it also plays a supporting role, enhancing and enriching other themes such as son, prophet, and king. Harmon shows how the title servant not only gives us a clearer understanding of Jesus Christ but also has profound implications for our lives as Christians. When we grasp what it means to be servants of Christ, our love for him and our obedience to him deepen. Understanding that the ultimate Servant Jesus Christ indwells his people to empower them to serve others in love has the potential to transform how we interact with fellow believers and the world around us. 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.
