These reviews, together with write-ups on highly anticipated titles such as, Lessons In Belonging by Erin Lane will provide readers with the knowledge and encouragement they need to continue to develop their skills in their respective areas of service within and without the church!

Title :

Revelation: A Shorter Commentary

  Revelation, 9780802866219, G K Beale, David Campbell

Author :

G. K. Beale / David Campbell

Category : NT Commentary

Format : Softcover

Price :
$51.50*

* Price Before Member's Discount

G. K. Beale's monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible and pertinent to preachers, students, and general Christian readers.

As in the original commentary, Beale views Revelation as an integrated whole, as a conscious continuation of the Old Testament prophetic books, and shows that recognizing Revelation's nearly constant use of Old Testament allusions is key to unlocking its meaning. Interspersed throughout the volume are more than sixty sets of "Suggestions for Reflection" to help readers better grasp the relevance of Revelation to their lives and our world today.

Karl Barth & The Making Of Evangelical Theology, 9780802872357, Clifford Anderson, Bruce McCormack  

Title :

Karl Barth: And The Making Of Evangelical Theology

Author :

Clifford Anderson / Bruce McCormack

Category : Theology

Format : Softcover

Price :

$50.00*

* Price Before Member's Discount

Swiss theologian Karl Barth traveled to the United States only once during his long career. In 1962, newly retired, he came to visit family and to deliver a series of lectures subsequently published (by Eerdmans) as Evangelical Theology: An Introduction, which remains in print and widely read to this day.

Besides recounting some delightful and poignant biographical details about Barth's two-month journey through the States, the authors of this book revisit central themes in Barth's mature theology and explore the theological and ethical significance of his Evangelical Theology.

Even more, the distinguished scholars contributing to this volume assess contemporary North American theology and show how Barth's Evangelical Theology remains as bracing, powerful, and relevant today as it was fifty years ago.

Building Your Volunteer Team: A 30 Day Change Project For Youth Ministry

Do you find yourself again and again wondering what it would take to get some new volunteers on-board for your ministry? And yet does it seem that you are never able to focus your energy on recruitment? Maybe you find yourself saying things like: "It's just easier for me to do it myself."

At one level, of course, this is true. Almost always, it is easier to "do it ourselves." We avoid the hassle of having to coordinate and communicate. We avoid having to follow up with people who drop the ball.

Youth leaders Mark DeVries and Nate Stratman have heard dozens of reasons why leaders choose not to build a solid volunteer team. But faithful ministry is not a do-it-yourself project. It's more than just recruiting - it involves changing the culture of your ministry so that volunteers want to become involved. That's why they have developed this 30-day change approach. In these pages you will find the step-by-step support you need to actually make one of the most important changes you want to see in your ministry.

Lessons In Belonging: From A Church-Going Commitment Phobe

Author : Erin Lane

Category : Christian Living

Format : Softcover

Price :

$23.50*

* Price Before Member's Discount

The was a time when being part of a church was not a decision you made but a reality you inhabited. But today belonging to the church has become a lost art, especially for millennials whose church experience is often summed up in one word: none.

Erin Lane’s church experience might be better described in two words: “It’s complicated.” Having grown up in church, she has an appreciation for liturgy and the promise of a covenant community. Having graduated from divinity school and taken a job in spiritual formation, she has an appreciation for the structured, shared pursuit of theological and spiritual integrity. Having married a pastor, she sort of had church coming. Yet, she wasn’t always sure how to belong.

With earnest persistence, Erin practised the hard (and often surprising) lessons of community. Her story is an invitation to reclaim God’s promise of inclusion and live like we belong.

Leading Small Groups In The Way Of Jesus

Is there any arena in the contemporary church more perplexing than small groups? Leaders and participants alike fill them with promises of unparalleled spiritual intimacy and reliable relationship. Experts put forward model after model, paradigm after paradigm, and frustrated small group leaders and followers meander from one to the next in increasingly vain hope that the next model will deliver the goods.

What could be more natural than a group of people sitting together, talking? What could be more contrived than a packaged curriculum, with prefab questions and notes for leaders? Such is the problem of small groups.

Scott Boren has wrestled with these challenges for years, in the context of his own small-group ministries and in consultation with churches of every stripe. In this book he reminds us that any small group, no matter how it's organized, is at its heart a collection of people each walking in the way of Jesus. That means we are going somewhere—together—and that means we have a reliable guide.

Title :

The Good Shepherd: A Thousand-Year Journey From Psalm 23 To The New Testament

Author : Kenneth Bailey

Category : Christology

Format : Softcover

Price :

$35.50

* Price Before Member's Discount

"The Lord is my shepherd."

Thus begins the most beloved of all Psalms - and thus begins a thousand-year journey through the Bible. Prophets, apostles and Jesus himself took up this image from David, reshaping it, developing it and applying it to their own situations and needs. Kenneth Bailey uses his celebrated insights into Middle Eastern culture and especially his familiarity with Middle Eastern shepherding customs to bring new light and life to our understanding of this central image of the Christian faith.

With each of nine major Old and New Testament passages, Bailey reveals the literary artistry of the Biblical writers and summarizes their key theological features. His work is also enriched by his unique access to very early Middle Eastern commentaries on these passages, bringing fresh understanding from within the mindset of these ancient worlds. The Good Shepherd invites us to experience a rich, biblical feast of ethical, theological and artistic delights.
