Eve Isnt Evil$22.99Add to cart
One reason the Bible has endured for millennia is its ability to reach our common humanness and give uplifting insights about struggle, resilience, and hope. Intertwining academic knowledge and candid, personal, and sometimes humorous stories, Julie Faith Parker helps readers engage biblical texts with both mind and heart–to learn the Bible’s stories, explore theological ideas, question common assumptions, develop interpretive skills, and grow in their own faith.
The title chapter demonstrates how feminism interprets the Bible with fresh eyes and offers empowering insights, an approach used in the rest of the book. In each chapter, Parker reads biblical texts through a feminist lens. The book discusses both neglected and well-known Old Testament passages with one chapter on the New Testament. Parker’s reflections show how vital our readings of the Bible can be as a source of strength, guidance, and joyful defiance.
Additional features include questions for conversation or reflection and an overview of the entire Bible, summarizing each book in one line.

Apocalypse Of John Among Its Critics$34.99Add to cart
Should Christians be embarrassed by the book of Revelation?
The Revelation of John has long confused and disturbed readers. The Apocalypse of John among Its Critics confronts the book’s difficulties. Leading experts in Revelation wrestle honestly with a question raised by critics:
*Should John’s Apocalypse be in the canon? (Alan S. Bandy)
*Was John intentionally confusing? (Ian Paul)
*Was John a bully? (Alexander E. Stewart)
*Did John delight in violence? (Dana M. Harris)
*Was John a chauvinist? (Kulli Toniste)
*Was John intolerant to others? (Michael Naylor)
*Was John antisemitic? (Rob Dalrymple)
*Did John make things up about the future? (Dave Mathewson)
*Did John advocate political subversion? (Mark Wilson)
*Did John misuse the Old Testament? (G.K. Beale)
Engaging deeply with Revelation’s difficulties helps the reader understand the book’s message?and respond rightly. The book of Revelation does not need to be avoided or suppressed. It contains words of life.
Charged With The Glory Of God$34.99Add to cart
Isaiah’s servant songs reveal a true and better Adam
In Charged with the Glory of God, Caroline Batchelder provides a synchronic, theological, and canonical reading of the four Servant Songs in Isaiah (42:1-9; 49:1-13; 50:3-11; 52:13-53:12), showing how they relate to one another and the message of the prophetic book.
Reading Isaiah as a compositional unity in conversation with other texts such as Genesis results in a coherent presentation of the mysterious servant. The polemic against idolatry reveals rebellious Israel to be false imagers of God. In contrast, Isaiah’s servant is an ideal embodiment of Yahweh’s image and likeness. Thus, the servant is a paradigm for those who wish to recapture and realize God’s good creation purposes for all humanity. The servant poems are not only a call to reorient oneself as a servant towards God and his creation, but also a map and means for doing so.
In this study, Batchelder offers fresh insights from Isaiah for understanding God’s true image and its idolatrous counterfeits.
Gods Israel And The Israel Of God$28.99Add to cart
Paul and Jewish identity after Christ
Paul believed Israel’s Messiah had come. But what does this mean for Israel? Debate rages over Paul and supersessionism: the question of whether–and if so, to what extent–the new covenant in Christ replaces God’s old covenant with Israel. Discussion of supersessionism carries much historical, theological, and political baggage, complicating attempts at dialogue.
God’s Israel and the Israel of God: Paul and Supersessionism pursues fruitful discussion by listening to a variety of perspectives. Scot McKnight, Michael F. Bird, and Ben Witherington III consider supersessionism from political, biblical, and historical angles, each concluding that if Paul believed Jesus was Israel’s Messiah, then some degree of supersessionism is unavoidable. Lynn H. Cohick, David J. Rudolph, Janelle Peters, and Ronald Charles respond to the opening essays and offer their own perspectives.
Readers of God’s Israel and the Israel of God will gain a broader understanding of the debate, its key texts, and the factors that shaped Paul’s view of Israel.
Godbreathed : What It Really Means For The Bible To Be Divinely Inspired$18.99Add to cart
Could there be good news in biblical imperfections?
What if the imperfections and contradictions in Scripture aren’t an accident? What if they were allowed to be there by the Holy Spirit in order to draw us beyond the literal words on the page and deeper into the spiritual truth God is trying to teach us? As provocative or unorthodox as that might sound, it is in fact a very ancient way of understanding what it means for the Bible to be divinely inspired. In this thorough and disarming book, author Zack Hunt explains how we got here and offers a practical and easily accessible approach for reading and understanding the Bible that doesn’t require a PhD in biblical languages.
As the disillusioned leave the Church in droves and the deconstructing search for better answers to eternal questions, this book repositions Scripture in the life of the Church to allow it to be what it was meant to be all along: a source of life, hope, and freedom for all. Godbreathed will reclaim the idea of biblical truth and reveal it to be not a list of beliefs to affirm or laws to be followed, but an invitation into a new way of living and loving on earth as it is in heaven.

Person Of Christ$16.99Add to cart
Right views of sin have a tendency to lead us to right views of the Person of the Saviour. But the converse is also true; right views of the Saviour’s person lead to the right views of Sin.
The Person of Christ is a wonderful encouragement for Christians today. Despite the difference between this edition’s original publication date, the truths Bonar addresses are timeless.
Focusing his structure on topics from the person of Christ as the essence of good tidings to views on Christ and the second coming, Bonar sets out a precedent for heartfelt evangelical exposition of the Gospel via the personal relationship Christians have with the Person of Christ.
Revelations Of Jesus$19.99Add to cart
John was preserved for a special moment, one last assignment. Exiled in solitary confinement on the island of Patmos, he found himself in the Spirit on the Lord Day, it is there when he is given The Revelation of Jesus. In the cave of suffering, John has his most defining moment, an encounter with the once crucified, but now risen and reigning Jesus. The same Jesus that is reigning today.
David Binion compels us to see that the message of Revelation isn’t to tell us how bad our world is but to encourage us not to succumb to the pressure of tribulation. Every generation has experienced its own set of struggles and trials. Every nation has known political upheaval. The church has been able to navigate its way through severe oppression in every situation. Perhaps you find yourself in your own personal Patmos, unable to see your way out of the dark cave of separation. Let John’s story inspire you. There are encounters awaiting that God wants to have with His people. He wants us to know that there is beauty on the Island of Patmos.
The book of Revelation, while it is about what is to come, it is also about what is now, and so much more. It is God’s unique love story. Binion challenges readers in The Revelation of Jesus, to view the words of John through a slightly different lens, with fresh illumination, from the eyes of a worshipper.
Pauls Thorn In The Flesh$29.99Add to cart
Paul’s enigmatic “thorn in the flesh” in 2 Corinthians has baffled interpreters for centuries. Many offer suggestions as to the identity of Satan’s messenger; others despair that the puzzle is unsolvable. In Paul’s Thorn in the Flesh: New Clues for an Old Problem, Kenneth Berding reopens the case. He follows a trail of clues that includes ancient beliefs about curses, hints in Paul’s letters, similarities with Jesus’s suffering, and the attempts of the earliest Christian interpreters. Berding offers twenty criteria-some familiar, others neglected-that any proposals must explain. While the usual suspects fall short, Berding suggests a new solution-one that satisfies all the evidence and gives us a fuller view of Paul. Far from an abstract puzzle, Paul’s own suffering is relevant to Christians today, including Berding’s own health struggles.

Ransom For Many$24.99Add to cart
Not to be served, but to serve
Unlike the Gospels of Luke and John, Mark’s Gospel never explicitly reveals any authorial intent. In A Ransom for Many, John J. R. Lee and Daniel Brueske identify Mark 10:45 as the heart of Mark’s Gospel. This single verse is the pivot point of Mark’s structure, themes, and message. Mark 10:45 is the key that unlocks the Gospel’s unique focus on true discipleship. Learn how Jesus’s faithfulness is both a summons and pattern for all who carry their cross and follow him.
Asking Better Questions Of The Bible$16.99Add to cart
Too often when we come to the Bible, we settle for easy answers. We move quickly toward the allure of resolution. But when we ask the questions the Bible is asking, we will do these things instead:
*understand the Eastern perspective of words, numbers, and core principles like eternal life, truth, sin, and faith
recognize the literary devices and the reclamation of stories used in the Torah
read the historical books both as inspiration and as cautionary tales
interpret the distinct genres in Wisdom Literature, such as psalms and proverbs
*decipher the unique elements of prophetic literature
*perceive the often tongue-in-cheek nature of the Gospel accounts
*view the New Testament letters as inspired, authoritative interpretation of the story of God
Lords Prayer : Matthew 6 And Luke 11 For The Life Of The Church$24.99Add to cart
Since the beginning of Christianity, the Lord’s Prayer has occupied an important place in the lives of Jesus’s disciples, for it is the prayer Jesus himself taught them. Like other biblical prayers, the Lord’s Prayer contains words people offer to God. But since this prayer is from Jesus and is part of Scripture, it is also God’s Word to people. When we say this prayer, not only are we speaking to God, but God is also speaking to us.
Highly regarded New Testament scholar William Wright shows how this classic text can speak afresh to the life of the church today. He integrates critical exegesis, theological exposition, and Christian spirituality to explicate the theological substance of the Lord’s Prayer. His goal is to help readers come to know God and love God and others more deeply through a focused study of this important Christian prayer.
The Touchstone Texts series addresses key Bible passages, making high-quality biblical scholarship accessible for the church. The series editor is Stephen B. Chapman, Duke Divinity School.
Trembling Faith : How A Distressed Prophet Helps Us Trust God In A Chaotic$17.99Add to cart
At times, our chaotic world reveals hints of the utter brokenness in which we live, like a peek behind the veneer. Neighbors taking advantage of others, unjust verdicts, and unfair beginnings. As people of faith in a powerful God, we want to lift our faces to heaven to cry out or bury our face in our hands to whisper prayers. Either way we utter things like “God, please help,” “God, what are you doing?” “God, those people are terrible!” And we aren’t alone in those words we lift to heaven. In fact, our frustrating and exhausting experience with chaos, injustice, and corruption is much like that of the distressed prophet Habakkuk in the Old Testament. He said those very things. When we’re looking for answers or just additional words for our prayers, his book is for us. His story is a prayer session-a surprisingly relevant one-open for eavesdroppers. We follow his journey of wrestling with evil, and we hear from God how to live. Habakkuk doesn’t see “living by faith” as a cliché to be written on a pillow or bumper sticker, but a way to survive. As you join Taylor Turkington (Bible teacher and former Director of TGC Women’s Training Network) through the timeless story of Habakkuk, you will look at the situation of your own heart and world, and here you will find some of the most powerful chapters of the Bible that both confront and console you. You will learn that the only way to not just survive, but find lasting hope is through gritty, trembling, wrestling faith in the God who works in our chaotic world.

Revelation For The Rest Of Us$26.99Add to cart
The biblical Book of Revelation frustrates and fascinates many people with its imagery and apocalyptic tone. Most popular interpretations of the book rely on a perspective known as dispensationalism, popularized by the Scofield Bible and more recently the Left Behind series of novels. Yet there are many problems with this popular way of reading Revelation, and until now, few alternatives have been available that were easy to understand.
In Revelation for the Rest of Us, Scot McKnight with Cody Matchett explore the timeless message of Revelation and how it speaks to us today with a courageous challenge to be faithful witnesses to Jesus while standing against the ever-present reality of worldly authorities. The writer, John, stimulates the imagination to see the world differently, through the eyes of God, presenting a divine politic that subverts the anti-god patterns of governments, empires, and those in power.
McKnight addresses the popular misconceptions about the book, explaining what John means in his use of the images of dragons, lambs, and beasts, and how the symbolism of Revelation speaks powerfully to the present day–though not in the way most people think. Drawing from the latest scholarship, they present an understanding of Revelation for anyone interested in deepening their personal study of the Bible as well as preachers looking to communicate this timeless message today.
McKnight offers in this book a discipleship manual for discerning the immoralities of political powers and how the church can be both an agent of resistance and transformation.
John designed his Book of Revelation to disciple readers into dissidents of the ways of the world and empire. John describes that empire with the term Babylon. Babylon is a timeless image of empire, militarism, economic exploitation, injustice, and oppression. The Book of Revelation disciples Christians through worship and the courageous challenge of faithful, or allegiant, witness to the slaughtered-Lamb. John’s dissident disciples can discern the presence of Babylon in our world and learn to speak up, speak out, and walk in the way of the Lamb. He disciples us by stimulating our imaginations to see the world and Babylon through the eyes of God, and in so doing John presents a divine politic, a view of government and power that subverts the anti-god patterns of Babylon today.
Apostles And Prophets$36.99Add to cart
What Are Apostles and Prophets
and What Is Their Critical Role in an End-Times Church?
These ministry gifts did not pass away with the last of Jesus’ disciples. Christ gave them to the Church for all time, and they are still alive and well today.
But what are apostles and prophets? Why is there so much controversy, error, and abuse in the Church concerning these ministry callings?
In Apostles and Prophets — Their Roles in the Past, Present, and Last-Days Church, Rick Renner defines these ministry offices biblically and historically, tracing their roles from the Early Church all the way to the present. Filled with vivid illustrations that recount Church history as you have perhaps never seen it, this book answers such questions as:
*What signs accompany true apostles and prophets?
*What defines false apostles and prophets?
*Why does Scripture refer to the Church as a vineyard, a body, and a temple?
*Why you have a priestly ministry to fulfill
*How apostles and prophets equip you for priestly ministry
*What is God’s real intention for a last-days Church?
Are you weary from being tossed around by mind-bending doctrines that leave you weak and disappointed? Would you like to participate in fulfilling God’s masterful plan for the age?
This book will fortify you with revelation you can build on! It will equip you to better understand and cooperate with the ministry of the apostle and prophet in this critical hour of the last-days Church

Father And His Family$16.99Add to cart
There are two great questions that we all must eventually ask:
*Why were we born?
*What must we do to inherit eternal life?
Legendary Bible teacher E. W. Kenyon tackles these questions head-on as he explains why God created us and what He has done to ensure our place at His side in The Father and His Family: The Story of Our Redemption.
Mankind was never created on a whim. Instead, we were destined to be the Father’s beloved children before the foundation of the world. When we fell, God created a way to bring us back to Himself.
“The entire plan of redemption is a revelation of the heart hunger and loneliness of the great Father God,” Kenyon says. “Christianity is not a religion; it is a family, a Father and His children.”
God gave Adam dominion and authority over the earth, which man squandered by questioning the Lord and disobeying him. In this manner, Adam turned over his rights to Satan.
“When he turned that vast kingdom over into the hands of Satan, it was a legal transference,” Kenyon explains. “It was so legal that God was obliged to recognize its legality, and the only way that God could meet the issue was to send His beloved Son down out of heaven to suffer the penalty of Adam’s transgression.”
Presenting profound truths simply yet eloquently, Kenyon covers the reason for creation, man’s treason, the dominion of death, man’s need for a mediator, the family of God, and related topics.
Gain a greater understanding of God’s Word, His love for you, and your rights as His beloved child.

Impact Of Ordinary Women In The Bible$10.99Add to cart
Ordinary Women, Extraordinary God
In book two of Don Wilkerson’s series The Impact of Ordinary People, the names listed in each chapter are not well-known women of the Bible. But that’s the theme of this unique devotional.
Adah, Bilhah, Jehosheba, and Huldah are just some of the ordinary women who accomplished extraordinary things for the glory of God. Scripture contains a supporting cast of men and women often overlooked in Bible study. This devotional brings thirty lesser-known women to life with short but thought-provoking lessons. Each woman deserves attention for her significant impact, but it’s God’s redemption story that is highlighted and woven through the lives of these ordinary women.
For those seeking discipleship material for personal growth, this book will aid individual and small group Bible study.
This devotional is also a helpful resource for pastors and Christian leaders to develop biblical lessons or one-of a-kind sermons.
18 Minutes With Jesus$26.99Add to cart
Did you know you can read Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in about 18 minutes? Yet packed into this short talk are more life-changing and startlingly original teachings than anywhere else in Scripture. In it, Jesus dives past the surface into the heart of what we need and desire–from God, ourselves, and one another. It’s the spiritual straight talk we need about the things that matter most in life.
Drawing from decades of study, Dr. Robert Jeffress breaks down Jesus’s most well-known (yet least-followed) teachings about happiness, faith, relationships, sex, reconciliation, prayer, money, and more. He shows how we often misunderstand and misapply these verses and unpacks exactly what Jesus was teaching us about our own hearts and minds.
If you long to take your Christian walk to the next level, it’s time to grasp these biblical truths that have the power to change your life.

A classic study now available in English
First appearing in 1885, Schlatter’s Der Glaube im Neuen Testament ( Faith in the New Testament) is a thorough analysis of the concept of faith. Taking into account Old Testament, rabbinic, and key first-century writings, Schlatter provides an exhaustive study on the meaning and implications of faith in the New Testament.

Word From The Beginning$26.99Add to cart
And the Word became flesh
John’s Gospel famously opens with a poetic prologue about the Word. However, after these initial verses, the theme of God’s Word incarnate seems to fade.
The silence is only apparent. In The Word from the Beginning, Bruce G. Schuchard reunites John’s prologue with the rest of his Gospel. What Jesus does in the Gospel embodies who Jesus is in the prologue. Jesus’s words and actions reveal and unfold his unique identity as the Word. Jesus is indeed God’s Word enfleshed.
This theological reading of John’s Gospel unifies Jesus’s identity, words, and work, opening up implications for Johannine Christology.
No Room For Compromise$79.97Add to cart
Is On the Horizon
Hurricanes consist of multiple belts of rain and wind that pound the earth in sequence with pauses between each violent phase. When the eye of the storm arrives, the sky may appear bright and clear, giving the illusion that the storm has passed. But the truth is, the fiercest impact of the storm is still approaching. Those who don’t know how to read the signs and patterns of a storm may mistakenly emerge from their place of safety, only to face unprotected the full velocity of the storm’s brutal fury.
In No Room for Compromise: Christ’s Message to Today’s Church, Rick Renner sets forth his most prophetic book to date. With a sobering charge to Christian leadership to stand up for faith in Christ regardless of the price required to proclaim it in its purest form Renner’s message is a clarion call: Winds of opposition against the Church are gathering. As pagan influences continue to increase in these last days, Christianity will once again become completely out of sync with the times with its message that Christ alone is the way to the Father.
The Bible is clear that at the end of the age, the spiritual hurricane of persecution that struck the Early Church will once again slam against society with devastating consequences. God has always had His remnant who would not bow to external pressures. In these final hours of the Church Age, He will have a remnant again. Will you be among them?

On Purpose : Understanding Gods Freedom For Women Through Scripture$17.99Add to cart
Many Christian women are torn between how the church has taught traditional gender roles and the liberty they see secular society afford to women. But what if the church’s conventional teachings on the place of women aren’t really biblical at all?
On Purpose is a serious study on the verses in the Bible that have often been interpreted to define the role of women in the church, at home, and in the workplace. Each chapter focuses on a single passage, considering what it meant to the original recipients, understanding each author’s intent, and applying its true meaning in today’s cultural setting. With each chapter, Julie Coleman thoroughly reveals how the timeless principles in the Bible actually teach freedom for women. In fact, when rightly understood, these verses are a wake-up call that we are handicapping the church’s role on earth by limiting women unnecessarily. Instead, men and women should be working side by side for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
Written without anger or judgment, and with no agenda but to delve deep into the Bible, On Purpose is an enlightening study offering a fresh, scriptural perspective. It’s time to set women free to answer God’s call on their lives–and set the church free to function the way God truly desires.
