    Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers

    by Christopher A. Hall

    Many Christians today long to become reacquainted with their ancient ancestors in the faith. They see a deeper worship and devotion in the prayers and hymns of the early church. And they believe that the writings of the early church can shed new light on their understanding of Scripture.

  • The Last Things, By David Höhne

    The Last Things

    Contours of Christian Theology

    by David Höhne

    There is no shortage of books on eschatology—the study of the last things and the end-times. Many arise out of incoherent or superficial readings of the Bible that detract from the "once and for all" achievements of God through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Others fail to consider the manner in which God reveals himself through the Lord Jesus and by the power of his Spirit. Too many ...

    Tracing a Biblical Theme Through the Canon

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    In the Company of Jesus

    Finding Unconventional Wisdom and Unexpected Hope

    by Bill Donahue

    What images come to mind when you hear the name "Jesus"? Religious icon? Mystical guru?

    Words of Life

    Scripture as the Living and Active Word of God

    by Timothy Ward

    Throughout Christian history, the overwhelmingly predominant view of the Bible has been that it is itself the living and active word of God.
