  • Natural Theology : Five Views


    Natural theology is a matter of debate among theologians and Christian philosophers. In this book, top scholars in the fields of theology and Christian philosophy introduce readers to five prevailing views on the topic. Contributors include John C. McDowell, Alister E. McGrath, Paul K. Moser, Fr. Andrew Pinsent, and Charles Taliaferro.

    The contributors offer constructive approaches from major perspectives–contemporary, Catholic, classical, deflationary, and Barthian–in a multiview format to provide readers with the “state of the question” on natural theology. Each unit consists of an introduction by a proponent of the view under discussion, responses from the other contributors, and a final response by the proponent. James Dew and Ronnie Campbell provide a helpful introduction and conclusion.

    Offering a model of critical thinking and respectful dialogue, this volume provides a balanced, irenic approach to a topic of ongoing debate. Students of theology, Christian philosophers, and readers interested in the theology and science dialogue will value this work.

  • Divine Christology Of The Apostle Paul


    The last fifty years of Pauline scholarship have provided numerous insights to both the academy and the church.

    Some of those most important discussions have related to the question of Paul’s view of Christ with respect to his divinity. While the landscape is rich with scholarly findings, it can be overwhelming to navigate the complex lines of argumentation and the interactions between various key scholars.

    In The Divine Christology of the Apostle Paul, biblical scholars Chris Bruno, John Lee, and Thomas Schreiner explore the more detailed and often perplexing conversations concerning the divinity of Christ, bringing helpful guidance and clarity to scholars’ various articulations, including those of:

    *Richard Bauckham
    *Larry Hurtado
    *Chris Tilling
    *N. T. Wright
    *and others

    After offering a cohesive and constructive understanding of such landmark studies, they then provide their own insights through the exegetical study of key New Testament passages related to Paul’s Christology.

    Filled with helpful charts, appendixes, and study aids, The Divine Christology of the Apostle Paul is an essential guide for any student, pastor, or scholar looking for an insightful distillation of this key dimension of Pauline studies.

  • How Should We Then Die


    “My times are in thy hand.”

    *Explains why physician-assisted death is attractive
    *Makes a case for the value of life and wrongness of killing
    *Argues from general revelation and Scripture
    *Helps Christians undercut the logic of euthanasia

    As more people accept the practice of physician-assisted death, Christians must decide whether to embrace or oppose it. Is it ethical for physicians to assist patients in hastening their own death? Should Christians who are facing death accept the offer of an assisted death?

    In How Should We then Die?, physician Ewan Goligher draws from general revelation and Scripture to persuade and equip Christians to oppose physician-assisted death. Euthanasia presumes what it is like to be dead. But for Christians, death is not the end. Christ Jesus has destroyed death and brought life and immortality through the gospel.

  • Nicene Creed : A Scriptural, Historical, And Theological Commentary


    Though the Nicene Creed is regularly recited in weekly church services, few understand its historical origins and connections to Scripture and key Christian doctrines.

    This volume bridges the gap, providing an accessible introduction that explains how the Creed is anchored in the Bible and how it came to be written and confessed in the early history of the church. The authors show how the Creed reflects the purpose of God in salvation, especially in relation to Christians’ divine adoption as sons and daughters, leading to glorification. Each chapter includes sidebars highlighting how the Creed has been received in the church’s liturgy.

    Professors, students, clergy, and religious educators will benefit from this illuminating and edifying guide to the Nicene Creed.

  • Judaism Is About Love


    A profound, startling new understanding of Jewish life, illuminating the forgotten heart of Jewish theology and practice: love.

    A dramatic misinterpretation of the Jewish tradition has shaped the history of the West: Christianity is the religion of love, and Judaism the religion of law. In the face of centuries of this widespread misrepresentation, Rabbi Shai Held–one of the most important Jewish thinkers in America today–recovers the heart of the Jewish tradition, offering the radical and moving argument that love belongs as much to Judaism as it does to Christianity. Blending intellectual rigor, a respect for tradition and the practices of a living Judaism, and a commitment to the full equality of all people, Held seeks to reclaim Judaism as it authentically is. He shows that love is foundational and constitutive of true Jewish faith, animating the singular Jewish perspective on injustice and protest, grace, family life, responsibilities to our neighbors and even our enemies, and chosenness.

    Ambitious and revelatory, Judaism Is About Love illuminates the true essence of Judaism–an act of restoration from within.

  • Genesis 6 Conspiracy Part 2


    As was graphically described in the first Genesis 6 Conspiracy book, there are giants among us, passing largely unnoticed, intent on carrying out a secret plan to enslave all humanity. They may not look like giants today, but their bloodlines and DNA extend all the way back to the Nephilim–the offspring of angels who mated with human women–described in Genesis 6 when Giants were roaming the land.

    Now, in this new work, The Genesis 6 Conspiracy Part II, author Gary Wayne goes in-depth with new information and explanations for each premise laid out in the first book. By adding this fact-filled book to your understanding, you will be able to clearly understand and articulate how we are living in the End of Time.

    “I was convinced I would not write a sequel to The Genesis 6 Conspiracy,” Wayne said. “So, what swayed my mindset? What I did not perceive was the level of Scriptural angst not appeased by modern clergy, teachers, and leaders in most Christian churches–whether Catholic or Protestant–that, and the thousands of emails I received from those who read the first Genesis 6 Conspiracy book.”

    This book was written to help answer the lingering questions many Christians have, and to provide scripturally researched answers and data points for these questions. The Genesis 6 Conspiracy Part II explores Scripture’s accounting of prehistory, history, and its important prophetic connections and explains in laymen’s terms how it all fits together in deciphering the End of Time.

  • Holy Spirit In The Christian Life


    The Holy Spirit in the Christian Life offers a brief account of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, focusing specifically on the question of the person and work of the Spirit in the Christian life.

    Lutheran theologian Cheryl Peterson identifies three key movements of the Christian life, showing the Spirit’s role in each: justification (God the Holy Spirit working for us), sanctification (God the Holy Spirit working in us), and mission (God the Holy Spirit working through us). Peterson explores scriptural and doctrinal perspectives on the person and work of the Holy Spirit–especially from churches with Reformation roots–in view of contemporary spiritual movements, including the spiritual-but-not-religious and the Pentecostal and charismatic movements. In addition, she explores the means of the Spirit’s work through Word, sacrament, and spiritual gifts.

    This book offers a fresh look at the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church today. It is ideal for seminarians and working pastors.

  • Return Of The Kingdom


    In this ESBT volume, Stephen Dempster traces the themes of kingship and kingdom throughout Scripture, illuminating the challenges, pain, and ultimate hope that the Bible offers. The story of God’s kingship is ultimately the fulfillment of a promise to deeat sin and death and to establish a world of peace and justice.

    The biblical story begins and ends with God as king. Human beings rebel, however, rather than fulfilling their royal calling to rule creation on behalf of their Sovereign-and the world became enslaved to the rule of a dark, serpentine lord.

    In this volume of IVP Academic’s Essential Studies in Biblical Theology, Stephen Dempster traces the themes of kingship and kingdom throughout Scripture, illuminating the challenges, pain, and ultimate hope that the Bible offers. The story of God’s kingship is ultimately the fulfillment of a promise, a promise to restore the rightful rule of humanity over creation by defeating sin and death and to establish a world of peace and justice.

    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 trace the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemptive history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the series offers an introduction to biblical theology.

  • Local And Universal


    In the words of the creeds, the church is the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic body of Christ.

    Of those features, perhaps none is as misunderstood as the church’s catholicity (that is, its universality)-because while the church is universal, it is also radically local, connected to a particular community or even found on a specific street corner. How might we reclaim the universality of the church without losing its local situatedness?

    In this Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture volume, pastor and theologian C. Ryan Fields offers a surprising solution: he turns to the Free Church tradition, those churches that are historically separate or “free” from state oversight. Juxtaposing the Free Church with its Episcopal counterpart, he argues that far from neglecting the catholicity of the church, the Free Church tradition can helpfully inform our understanding of the one body of Christ while remaining true to its local roots.

    Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture, edited by Daniel J. Treier and Kevin J. Vanhoozer, promotes evangelical contributions to systematic theology, seeking fresh understanding of Christian doctrine through creatively faithful engagement with Scripture in dialogue with church tradition.

  • Wood Between The Worlds


    The cross is the heart of Scripture

    Everything about the gospel message leads to the cross, and proceeds from the cross. In fact, within the narrative of Scripture, the crucifixion of Jesus is literally the crux of the story-the axis upon which the biblical story turns. But it would be a mistake to think we could sum up the significance of the crucifixion in a tidy sentence or two. That kind of thinking only insulates us from the magnificence of what God has done. In our ongoing quest to make meaning of the cross, we need to recognize that this conversation will never conclude-that there is always something more to be said.

    Brian Zahnd reminds us that the meaning of the cross is multifaceted and should touch every aspect of our lives. Just as gazing through the eyepiece of a kaleidoscope reveals a new geometric image with every turn, Zahnd helps us see that there are infinite ways to behold the cross of Christ as the beautiful form that saves the world. The Wood Between the Worlds is an invitation to encounter the cross of Christ anew.

  • Crisis Of Confidence


    Carl Trueman Analyzes How Ancient Creeds and Confessions Protect and Promote Biblical Christianity in a Culture of Expressive Individualism

    Historic statements of faith-such as the Heidelberg Catechism, the Apostles’ Creed, and the Westminster Confession of Faith-have helped the Christian church articulate and adhere to God’s truth for centuries. However, many modern evangelicals reject these historic documents and the practices of catechesis, proclaiming their commitment to “no creed but the Bible.” And yet, in today’s rapidly changing culture, ancient liturgical tradition is not only biblical-it’s essential.

    In Crisis of Confidence, Carl Trueman analyzes how creeds and confessions can help the Christian church navigate modern concerns, particularly around the fraught issue of identity. He contends that statements of faith promote humility, moral structure, and a godly view of personhood, helping believers maintain a strong foundation amid a culture in crisis. This is a revised edition of Trueman’s The Creedal Imperative, now with a new section on the rise of expressive individualism.

    *Updated Edition of The Creedal Imperative: Includes fresh cultural insights on modern individualism

    *Written by Carl Trueman: Author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self (100,000+ copies sold)

    *Theological and Historical: Explains why creeds and confessions are necessary, how they have developed over time, and how they can function in the church of today and tomorrow

    *Ideal for Pastors, Professors, and Those Interested in Liturgical Tradition
