  • All Things Are Ready

    $13.99

    It is one of the glories of the gospel that it is universal in scope. There is nothing narrow or limited about the good news of salvation, but we often need reminded of this. When the world seems increasingly hostile the Church can be tempted to retreat in on itself. Donald John Maclean seeks to remind Christians of the fullness and freeness of the gospel, and to encourage them to share it with those who have not yet turned to Christ.

  • Method Of Christian Theology

    $22.99

    When handling the things of God, our method matters.

    Everyone who thinks about God has a method for approaching the subject, whether they recognize it or not. A theological method addresses foundational questions such as: What is theology? How should we approach Scripture? What is the role of tradition, philosophy, and experience? How do we use theology in ministering to others? These questions are vital for anyone studying God and his Word-how one defines theology, sees its task, and uses its sources will shape one’s doctrine, for better or worse.

    In The Method of Christian Theology, Rhyne Putman guides readers through the essential first words of systematic theology. Written for entry-level theology students, this book gives clear suggestions about how to use theological sources, how to reason through difficult problems, and how to apply theological reflection to paper writing and preaching. By studying the foundations of theology, readers will be better equipped to serve God’s people in whatever ministry they are called to. Continue Reading Method Of Christian Theology

  • Church : An Introduction

    $14.99

    A Concise Systematic Theology of the Church The word church evokes different thoughts from different people-some think of a group of people who meet together on Sunday mornings; some think of a building; and others think of a bigger, global movement. In this installment of the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Gregg Allison offers an overview of specific doctrines and practices of different churches and denominations as each finds its unique expression through its identity, leadership, government, sacraments, ministries, and future. For each of these topics, Allison lays out the common practice among local church communities (mere ecclesiology) and examines how they diverge from one another in their expression (more ecclesiology). Through this systematic primer, readers will come away knowing not only how various churches differ, but also how they’re ultimately united as the body of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit.

  • Marriage Scripture And The Church

    $29.99

    This book takes a distinctive approach to the same-sex-union debate by framing the issue as a matter of marriage. Darrin Snyder Belousek demonstrates that the interpretation of Scripture affects whether the church should revise its doctrine of marriage for the sake of sanctioning same-sex union. Engaging charitably yet critically with opposing viewpoints, he delves deeply into what marriage is, what it is for, and what it means as presented in the biblical narrative and theological tradition, articulating a biblical-traditional theology of marriage for the contemporary church. Afterword by Wesley Hill. Continue Reading Marriage Scripture And The Church

  • Simply Trinity : The Unmanipulated Father, Son, And Spirit

    $24.99

    What if the Trinity we’ve been taught is not the Trinity of the Bible? In this groundbreaking book, Matthew Barrett reveals a shocking discovery: we have manipulated the Trinity, recreating the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our own image.

    With clarity and creativity, Barrett mines the Scriptures as well as the creeds and confessions of the faith to help you rediscover the beauty, simplicity, and majesty of our Triune God. You will be surprised to learn that what you believe about the Trinity has untold consequences for salvation and the Christian life. To truly know God, you must meet the One who is simply Trinity.

  • Postmortem Opportunity : A Biblical And Theological Assessment Of Salvation

    $40.00

    One of Jesus’ most basic commands to his disciples was to tell the world about the good news of his life, death, and resurrection.

    From the earliest days of the church, Christians have embraced this calling. But for those Christians who emphasize the need for an active response to the gospel in order to be saved, this raises some difficult questions: What about those who did not hear the gospel before death? Or what about those who heard an incorrect or incomplete version of the gospel? Or what about those who were too young or who were otherwise unable to respond? In light of these challenging questions, theologian James Beilby offers a careful consideration of the possibility for salvation after death. After examining the biblical evidence and assessing the theological implications, he argues that there is indeed hope for faith–even beyond death.

  • Path Of Faith

    $22.00

    The closely related biblical themes of covenant and law have often been debated.

    Yet they are among the most important topics in Scripture–theologically and practically. They address how God graciously relates to us and how we ought to live on a daily basis. In this ESBT volume, Brandon Crowe builds on previous books in the series as he considers covenant and law throughout both Old and New Testaments. The Path of Faith lays out key principles such as the obligation of people to obey their Creator, how Jesus’ perfect obedience to God’s law opens the way to eternal life, and what the law means for us today as we continue walking by faith. The Path of Faith reveals the unity of the biblical witness and the consistent call for God’s people to show him covenant loyalty, all while recognizing the unique saving work of Christ on our behalf. Essential Studies in Biblical Theology (ESBT), edited by Benjamin L. Gladd, explore the central or essential themes of the Bible’s grand storyline. Taking cues from Genesis 1-3, authors explore the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemption history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT offers an introduction to biblical theology. Continue Reading Path Of Faith

  • Introduction To Ecclesiology (Revised)

    $30.00

    What is the church? Why are there so many different expressions of church throughout time and space, and what ties them all together?

In this text, theologian Veli-Matti Karkkainen provides a wide-ranging survey of the rich field of ecclesiology in the midst of rapid developments and new horizons. Drawing on Karkkainen’s international experience and comprehensive research on the church, this revised and expanded edition is thoroughly updated to incorporate recent literature and trends. This unique primer not only orients readers to biblical, historical, and contemporary ecclesiologies but also highlights contextual and global perspectives and includes an entirely new section on interfaith comparative theology.

  • Telling Gods Story

    $39.99

    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

  • Theological Ethics : The Moral Life Of The Gospel In Contemporary Context

    $29.99

    Be Prepared to Think Theologically through Today’s Most Pressing Ethical and Moral Issues

    In Theological Ethics theologian, pastor, and ethicist W. Ross Hastings gives pastors, ministry leaders, and students a guide designed to equip them to think deeply and theologically about the moral formation of persons in our communities, about ethical inquiry and action, and about the tone and content of our engagement in the public square. The book presents a biblical perspective and a gospel-centered framework for thinking about complex contemporary issues in ways are life-giving and that will lead readers into greater flourishing as human persons in community.

    This book is distinctive in presenting:

    *A framework for theological ethics that is robustly theological and Trinitarian. Ethics isolated from the gospel and theology becomes bad news, but when it is informed by and empowered by participation in the triune God of grace, it is part of the good news of the gospel.

    *An approach to theology and theological ethics that makes the Word of God the ultimate authority and it is therefore grounded in the biblical narrative and texts.

    *An understanding that theological ethics are inherently missional. The church as the image of the triune God makes it the home of ethics, but in light of its missional identity, it will reverberate outwards to engage the world in ways that are humble and not power-mongering, that are gospel-based and shalom-evoking.

    Theological Ethics is for those who lead churches or ministries (or someday will) and who urgently need deep theological grounding as they daily encounter ethical and moral issues where they need to provide a gracious, truthful, and gospel-directed response.

  • What The Bible Says About Birth Control Infertility Reproductive Technology

    $7.99

    New from Bestselling Author Wayne Grudem

    The topic of reproductive issues is a sensitive one that every married couple must face. Advances in reproductive technology offer couples more options than ever before to have children-fertility treatment methods; embryo adoption; and prefertilization genetic screening. With all of these solutions available, plus the blessing of adoption, it can be difficult for Christian couples to determine which to consider when the Bible doesn’t give explicit answers. Theologian Wayne Grudem applies biblical truth and ethical reasoning to these problems in order to help Christians navigate issues surrounding birth control, infertility, reproductive technology, and adoption as they seek to live out God’s word in an ever-changing society.
