CHRIST & CULTURE REVISITED (P)

product image
$15.50
New/Used: New
Called to live in the world, but not to be of it, Christians must maintain a balancing act that becomes more precarious the further our culture departs from its Judeo-Christian roots. How should members of the church interact with such a culture, especially as deeply enmeshed as most of us have become?D. A. Carson applies his masterful touch to this problem. He begins by exploring the classic typology of H. Richard Niebuhr with its five Christ-culture options. Carson proposes that these disparate options are in reality one still larger vision. Using the Bible's own story line and the categories of biblical theology, he clearly lays out that unifying vision. Carson acknowledges the helpfulness of Niebuhr's grid and similar matrices but warns against giving them canonical force.More than just theoretical, Christ and Culture Revisited is also designed practically to help Christians untangle current messy debates on living in the world. Carson emphasizes that the relation between Christ and culture is not limited to an either/or cultural paradigm -- Christ against culture or Christtransforming culture. Instead Carson offers his own paradigm in which all the categories of biblical theology must be kept in mind simultaneously to inform the Christian worldview.While many other books on culture interact with Niebuhr, none of them takes anything like the biblical-theological approach adopted here. Groundbreaking and challenging, Christ and Culture Revisited is a tour de force.

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS (P)

$11.50
New/Used: New

Not every Christian should go to seminary, but there are certain teachings of the Bible that every Christian must know. Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live. Whether you're a relatively new believer in Jesus or a mature Christian looking for a better understanding of basics of the faith, Christian Beliefs is for you.

This readable guide to twenty basic Christian beliefs is a condensation of Wayne Grudem's award-winning book Systematic Theology, prized by pastors and teachers everywhere. He and his son, Elliot, have boiled down the essentials of Christian theology for the layperson and made them both clear and applicable to life. You will learn about the Bible, the characteristics of God, what it means that we are created in the image of God, what God has done for us in Christ, the purpose of the church, and much more. Each chapter includes questions for personal review or group discussion.

"These truly are twenty basic beliefs that every Christian should know. Wayne Grudem is a master teacher with the ability to explain profound truths in simple language. He is a man of deep conviction and theological passion--and those who read this book will be both educated and encouraged in the faith."

--R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

Based on Systematic Theology, this summary will certainly help beginners with Christ to get the hang of their faith."

--J. I. Packer, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia

As Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology contracts into a compact book, I do not lose my enthusiasm for the truth he loves and the clarity of his words."

--John Piper, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota

CHRISTIAN MISSION: OLD TESTAMENT FOUNDATIONS AND NEW TESTAMENT DEVELOPMENTS

product image
$36.50
New/Used: New
Synopsis: How did a first-generation Jewish messianic movement develop the momentum to become a dominant religious force in the Western world? The essays here first investigate the roots of God's mission and the mission of his people in the Old Testament and Second Temple Judaism, specifically in the Psalms, Isaiah, and Daniel. The contributions then discuss the mission of Jesus, and how it continued into the mission of the Twelve, other Jewish believers (in the Gospels, General Epistles, and Revelation), and finally into Paul's ministry to the Gentiles documented in the book of Acts and his epistles. These essays reach backward into the background of what was to become the Christian mission and forward through the New Testament to the continuing Christian mission and missions today. Endorsements: "For too long now biblical scholarship and missiology have been progressing in splendid isolation with little reference to each other. This sparkling collection of essays not only demonstrates the interdependence of these disciplines but also takes seriously the Hebrew Scriptures and Second Temple Judaism as fertile soil in which the seeds for Christian mission were sown, came to flower in the New Testament, and continue to bear fruit in the ongoing global mission of the church at the beginning of the twenty-first century." --Trevor J. Burke author of Adopted into God's Family: Exploring a Pauline Metaphor "Biblical scholars and missiologists have much to learn from each other. This work, with contributions from notable scholars, offers some fresh biblical insights for thinking about Christian mission." --Craig Keener author of Romans: A New Covenant Commentary (Cascade 2009) "We have needed a work that presents the development of Mission from Israel to the early church. These essays, written by leading scholars in both fields, admirably accomplish that goal. Here is a work that covers the field, presents missional roots as well as strategy, is very readable, and would serve as a fine textbook both for courses and personal study. I highly recommend this book." --Grant Osborne author of The Hermeneutical Spiral: A Comprehensive Introduction to Biblical Interpretation Author Biography: Stanley E. Porter is President, Dean, and Professor of New Testament, at McMaster Divinity College. He has published extensively in the area of New Testament and Greek language and linguistics, including New Testament Greek Papyri and Parchments (with Wendy Porter, 2008). Cynthia Long Westfall is Assistant Professor of New Testament at McMaster Divinity College. She is the author of A Discourse Analysis of Hebrews (2006).

$52.50 - $70.00
Jim Popham's widely popular Classroom Assessment shows teachers how to use classroom testing skillfully and formatively to dramatically increase their teaching effectiveness and make a difference in how well students learn. As in past editions, the author pays particular attention to the instructional payoffs of well-designed classroom tests and highlights the implications of testing on teaching throughout in special But What Does This Have to Do with Teaching? sections in each chapter. Decision Time vignettes present practical classroom problems and show readers actual decisions being made. Parent Talk features describe situations in which a teacher needs to explain something about assessment to parents and show what the author would say in that situation. And a lighter tone is established with cartoons to which readers can relate. The new Eighth Edition highlights the increasing importance of educational assessment in an era of common core state standards and teacher evaluations based on students' tests scores, incorporates the Standards for Educational and Psychological testing guidelines throughout relevant sections, and includes a new section on instructionally diagnostic tests to help readers evaluate the merits of commercial or locally developed diagnostic assessment.

    COFFEE SHOP CONVERSATIONS: EVANGELICAL PERSPECTIVES ON CURRENT ISSUES

    product image
    $23.25
    $17.50
    $17.50 - $23.25
    Description: There are numerous issues in the public square confronting the Western church. While there are any number of books available on each of the topics engaged in this collection of essays--just war, family planning, rest, immigration, politics, economic recession, fair trade, and health care--there is no compact guide that approaches each of these issues from an evangelical perspective. Coffee Shop Conversations does just that. The book does not aim to address each issue exhaustively; instead, it offers an evangelical approach to these topics, with the hopes that the door will be opened for further conversation. This book brings together the expertise of several evangelical scholars who are committed to serving the church through scholarship. The volume is therefore ideal for student ministry, Sunday school classes, small groups, and individuals interested in engaging the wider culture from a stance that is well reasoned and committed to biblical faith and practice. Endorsements: "Scholarly without being pedantic, helpful without being burdensome, this new work by a variety of young scholars provides discussion on a variety of needed topics. As an ethicist myself, I am always delighted to see young scholars delve into areas of needed discussion. I am excited this book has been written and that these essays might well receive a much broader audience. Of times when believers ought to be salt and light, that day is now! I commend this group for moving us from where we are to where we ought to be!" --Frank S. Page, President and Chief Executive Officer, Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee "Coffee Shop Conversations is as provocative as it is informative. The authors do not presume to offer 'definitive' answers to our generation's most pressing ethical problems, but they will certainly get us thinking. You'll disagree with some of it (I did) and you'll benefit from all of it. I can't imagine a more interesting book to use as a discussion starter with friends in any Christian setting." --Gary M. Burge, Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School About the Contributor(s): Russell L. Meek is an adjunct instructor and doctoral student at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also serves as the associate editor for Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament and is an assistant book review editor for Journal of Hebrew Scriptures. N. Blake Hearson is an associate professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has served as a pastor of small groups at two churches and has been a member of the faculty at Columbia Evangelical Seminary.

    $16.00
    New/Used: New
    The "dean of Cold War historians" (The New York Times) now presents the definitive account of the global confrontation that dominated the last half of the twentieth century. Drawing on newly opened archives and the reminiscences of the major players, John Lewis Gaddis explains not just what happened but why--from the months in 1945 when the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. went from alliance to antagonism to the barely averted holocaust of the Cuban Missile Crisis to the maneuvers of Nixon and Mao, Reagan and Gorbachev. Brilliant, accessible, almost Shakespearean in its drama, The Cold War stands as a triumphant summation of the era that, more than any other, shaped our own.
