    Organizational Leadership

    Foundations and Practices for Christians

    Edited by Jack Burns, John R. Shoup, and Donald C. Simmons Jr.

    Kingdom leadership does not begin and end at the church door.

    Effective ministry begins here.

    You've studied what you think you need to know before entering a career in ministry. Is there anything that is more important than knowing about hermeneutics, homiletics, theology, exegesis, and everything else you have likely learned in seminary and church ministry so far?

    Shades of Light

    A Novel

    by Sharon Garlough Brown

    "I was desperate. . . . I couldn't turn off the dark thoughts, no matter how hard I tried or how much I prayed. And then I spent a whole weekend in bed, and the crying wouldn't stop, and I got really scared. I've had bouts with depression before—it's kind of a cloud I've learned to live with—but this time was different. I felt like I was going under, like I'd never feel hopeful ...

    Toward a Prophetic Youth Ministry

    Theory and Praxis in Urban Context

    by Fernando Arzola Jr.

    Youth ministries in an urban context are too often left to their own devices. The resources available to them are overwhelmingly conceived, tested and produced exclusively in the suburbs, and bring little to bear on the realities of urban youth culture. As a consequence, youth ministries in large cities have tended to settle onto one of three paths--a traditional paradigm that jealously guards ...

    Volume 1

    Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture

    Edited by Andrew Louth
    General Editor Thomas C. Oden

    The rich tapestry of the creation narrative in the early chapters of Genesis proved irresistible to the thoughtful, reflective minds of the church fathers. Within them they found the beginning threads from which to weave a theology of creation, Fall, and redemption. Following their mentor the apostle Paul, they explored the profound significance of Adam as a type of Christ, the ...

    Tyndale New Testament Commentaries

    by Thomas R. Schreiner
    Series edited by Eckhard J. Schnabel
    Consulting Editor Nicholas Perrin

    The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of the apostle Paul's greatest evangelistic successes. However, the church he founded was full of contention, ranging from questions about leadership to incest. Some Christians were taking fellow believers to court. There were issues concerning marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship, and spiritual gifts. In response, Paul offered ...

    Graven Ideologies

    Nietzsche, Derrida Marion on Modern Idolatry

    by Bruce Ellis Benson

    What do the philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche, Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Marion have in common with Christianity? Surprisingly, they are all concerned about idolatry, about the tendency we have to create God in our own image and about what we can do about it. Can we faithfully speak of God at all without interposing ourselves? If so, how? Bruce Ellis Benson explores this common concern by clearly ...
