  • Hypotheses About Jesus

    $18.95

    This famous classic, which sold more than one million copies in Italy alone when originally published, shows how reason, history, and experience confirm the truth of the Gospel. It will take you on a quest to uncover the obscure Jesus of history, challenge you to think about Christianity as a historical religion, and offer you a multitude of reasons to believe in the Christian faith. These pages – written by Vittorio Messori, a secular journalist who converted in adulthood from agnosticism – in fact rely purely on the evidence of facts and history.

    Raised in an atmosphere of rationalism, Messori shares the deeply personal and transformative experience he had one summer when facing life’s ultimate questions. His view on politics, society, and religion changed forever when he encountered the Jesus of the Gospels. This moved him to conduct a historical examination of the roots of Christianity and evaluate the truth of the Gospel, always in the light of faith and reason. This is what you are about to read.

    Messori adopts a compelling journalistic approach, drawing from Blaise Pascal and an array of philosophers, historians, and theologians. As he breaks open the Gospels, you will perceive his shift from doubt and indifference to fascinating discovery and wonder. You will also learn:

    *Ways in which science and archaeology point to belief in God

    *How Christ’s teachings provide universal insights on human nature and behavior

    *Logical arguments that debunk the views of mythologizers and critics

    *Three possible solutions for “the problem of Jesus”

    *Authentic answers to those skeptical of Jesus’ Messianic origins

    *How kerygma points to the proclamation of Christ even before the Gospels were written

    Messori also examines how Marxist ideology and Enlightenment philosophy stand up under the lens of historical scrutiny. He further discusses the roles of the apostles and women in the Gospels, along with eyewitness accounts. You will learn about the impact of Christianity on culture, how Christianity differs from other religions, and symbolism in Christian belief.

    Throughout this journey, you will observe how the message of Christ endures through time. Above all, you will see how the Gospels teach true equality and how our Lord offers the liberty that we all seek as He revolutionizes the world with His ever-present love.

  • Resurrected Jesus : The Church In The New Testament

    $18.99

    The Resurrected, Conquering Jesus

    In the fifth and final installment of his bestselling Jesus series, David Limbaugh digs into the New Testament epistles with passion and imagination, showing that the testimony of Jesus’ earliest followers provides irrefutable proof of His resurrection.

    Inspired by God and penned by the apostles, the epistles were written to the first Christians to proclaim the divinity of Christ and to encourage them to persevere through persecution, famine, sickness, and doubt.

    On a lawyerly quest for truth, Limbaugh looks behind these biblical texts, exploring the lives of their authors, who included some of those closest to the Lord–his most intimate friends, Peter and John, and his own kinsmen James and Jude. The result is an unforgettable encounter with Jesus.

    The Resurrected Jesus speaks to the struggles the church faces today, strengthening believers and challenging doubters with the eyewitness accounts of the messengers who travelled far and wide to proclaim the resurrected Christ.

  • Lord Jesus Christ

    $36.99

    Christ, our Redeemer

    Jesus is the divine Son of God who has taken on human nature in the incarnation. And as prophet, priest, and king, he leads his people in a new exodus. In The Lord Jesus Christ, Brandon D. Crowe reflects on Christ’s person and work. Crowe traces christological concerns throughout the Old and New Testaments and church history and then presents systematic and practical implications. Through a combination of biblical, historical, and theological study, Crowe provides a fresh and robust statement of who Christ is and what he has done.

    Written from a confessionally Reformed perspective in dialogue with the great creeds of the church, The Lord Jesus Christ provides a thorough and trustworthy guide to understanding Jesus and his salvific work.

  • Jesus And The God Of Classical Theism

    $50.00

    In both biblical studies and systematic theology, modern treatments of the person of Christ have cast doubt on whether earlier Christian descriptions of God–in which God is immutable, impassible, eternal, and simple–can fit together with the revelation of God in Christ. This book explains how the Jesus revealed in Scripture comports with such descriptions of God. The author argues that the Bible’s Christology coheres with and even requires the affirmation of divine attributes like immutability, impassibility, eternity, and simplicity.

  • Word From The Beginning

    $26.99

    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.

  • Extravagant Love : The Self-Emptying Of Jesus

    $10.95

    The theme of the book is the self-outpouring in love, or the kenosis, of Jesus Christ. The kenosis of the Son of God is at the heart of the identity of the Sisters of Jesus of Nazareth, for whom these reflections were initially composed. In baptism we are all plunged into the self-emptying life of Jesus and are called to live out this way of love in whatever situations we find ourselves. It is not surprising, then, that while the book was originally written to benefit a particular religious community it is, in fact, deeply significant to all followers of Jesus. Extravagant Love is not a sustained treatise on the kenosis of the Son of God. The mystery is too great for that. Rather, Ruth Burrows draws together scriptural and theological insights and her own lived experience of over seventy years as a Carmelite nun to offer various streams into the unfathomable ocean of God’s self-giving, ecstatic love. Each reflection is intended to begin in reading and to continue in prayerful pondering and contemplative wonder.

  • Finding Messiah : A Journey Into The Jewishness Of The Gospel

    $17.00

    Jesus was Jewish, and his Jewish identity informed every aspect of his work, words, and witness.

    He came as the Messiah of Israel, God’s covenant people, and he spoke the language of God’s faithfulness to this people. So why does it seem that Judaism has little to do with our Christian discipleship today? Jennifer Rosner, a scholar of Jewish-Christian relations, takes us on a personal and corporate journey into the Jewish roots of Christian faith and practice. Understanding Judaism–and the way in which Judaism and Christianity became separate religions–is essential for a rich and holistic Christian identity. As a follower of Jesus who was raised in a Jewish home and who continues to live a Jewish life, Rosner has seen firsthand how a Christian faith can become impoverished when divorced from its Jewish roots. Finding Messiah follows Rosner’s own journey in rediscovering the role of Judaism and God’s covenant with Israel in Christian life and practice. When we begin to understand Christianity’s indelible relationship to Judaism, key aspects of the Christian faith come alive and the wonder of the gospel becomes clear in new and powerful ways. Jesus’ Judaism provides the foundation for the church that is built upon his name. Rediscover the Jewish Jesus, and in so doing, experience a deeper and richer faith than ever before.

  • Reflect : Becoming Yourself By Mirroring The Greatest Person In History

    $19.99

    What’s the most important thing in the universe to you? What, more than anything else, permeates your thought life, pulls your heart strings, and propels your actions? Don’t fool yourself. That supreme something-whatever it may be for you-is shaping the person you are becoming, for better or for worse, turning you into someone radiant and full of life, or making you a dim and weightless ghost of yourself. But what if we worshipped Jesus? Not the imaginary Jesus invented by televangelism, consumerism, fundamentalism, mysticism, or some political ism, but the actual Jesus we meet in the New Testament? How can he, unlike any other object of worship, enlarge our intellects, our emotions, our actions, our relationships, our imaginations, our whole selves? Drawing from science, literature, art, theology, history, music, philosophy, pop culture, and more, Thaddeus J. Williams paints a fresh and inspiring vision of how we become most truly ourselves by mirroring the Greatest Person in History.

  • Challenge Of Jesus

    $22.00

    In the midst of many well-publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright’s lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative, and credible portrait.

    Originally published in 1999 and with a new introduction in 2015, The Challenge of Jesus presents an accessible introduction to the “quest for the historical Jesus” and why it matters for the Christian faith. Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus. He writes, “Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. . . . Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say.” This classic work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.

  • Christ Key : Unlocking The Centrality Of Christ In The Old Testament

    $15.95

    Reading the Old Testament can seem like exploring an old, mysterious mansion, packed with all sorts of strange rooms. The creation room, vast and sublime. The exodus room, with hardhearted pharaohs and dried-up seas. The war room, with bloody swords and crumbling walls. The tabernacle room, with smoking altars and dark inner sanctums. What does this odd and ancient world have to do with us, who are modern followers of Jesus? As it turns out, everything! Every chapter in the Old Testament, in a variety of ways, tells the story that culminates in Jesus the Messiah.

    What Christians today call the Old Testament is what Jesus and the earliest believers simply called the Scriptures. That was their Bible. From its pages, they taught about the Messiah’s divine nature, his priestly work, his ministry of salvation. The Christ Key will reintroduce readers to these old books as ever-fresh, ever-new testimonies of Jesus. By the end, you will see even Leviticus as a book of grace and mercy, and you will hear in the Psalms the resounding voice of Christ.

  • Life Of Jesus Christ

    $15.95

    How often have you heard the Gospel at Sunday Mass and wondered, “What happens next?” Often, our only experience of the Gospels is of those isolated segments taken out of context, like unassembled pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, rather than the story of our Savior’s life.

    The Life of Jesus Christ: Understanding the Story of the Gospels aims to change that experience. Author Russell Shaw weaves together the events of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John’s narratives in chronological order to capture a true and rounded picture of Jesus’ life.

    The Life of Jesus Christ is the scriptural companion you’ve been searching for. Together, the four Gospels reveal Jesus Christ, God Incarnate, as a man of complexity and depth – compassionate but stern, who knew how to laugh and how to cry, a charismatic leader uninterested in worldly power, a subtle thinker who drew sublime messages from ordinary life. With Shaw guiding you, you’ll truly get to know the Son of God in a new way.
