    Evangelicals & Scripture

    Tradition, Authority and Hermeneutics

    Wheaton Theology Conference Series

    Edited by Vincent E. Bacote, Laura Miguelez Quay, and Dennis L. Okholm

    By definition, a high view of Scripture inheres in evangelicalism. However, there does not seem to be a uniform way to articulate an evangelical doctrine of Scripture.

    What did C. S.

  • Marriage and Family in the Biblical World, Edited by Ken M. Campbell

    Marriage and Family in the Biblical World

    Edited by Ken M. Campbell

    Current debates about marriage and the family assume much about the history of these institutions. But what do we really know about the social and ethical arrangements of these institutions, especially during biblical times?

  • Pocket Dictionary for the Study of Biblical Hebrew, By Todd J. Murphy

    Pocket Dictionary for the Study of Biblical Hebrew

    The IVP Pocket Reference Series

    by Todd J. Murphy

    Of Greek and Hebrew, Hebrew strikes the most fear in the heart of the Bible student. The alphabet does not look anything like English. The vocabulary offers almost no points of contact with English. The verb system is utterly alien. And the lexicons, grammars and textbooks are wrapped up in a metalanguage--spiked with Latin--that is daunting in itself. For those who feel that studying the English ...

  • Powers of Darkness: Principalities  Powers in Paul's Letters, By Clinton E. Arnold

    Powers of Darkness

    Principalities Powers in Paul's Letters

    by Clinton E. Arnold

    Satan worship. Witches. New Age channelers. The last two decades have witnessed a vast upsurge in occult activity. Scores of popular books have warned Christians of the dangers and urged them to do battle against these spiritual forces. Few books, however, have developed a careful biblical theology on demons, principalities and powers. Clinton Arnold seeks to fill this gap, providing an in-depth ...
