    Sinai and the Saints

    Reading Old Covenant Laws for the New Covenant Community

    by James M. Todd III

    What should Christians do with all the laws in the Old Testament? The Old Testament tells the story of the beginnings of God's salvation history, and it is part of the authoritative canon of Scripture affirmed by the church. But what role should the laws of the old covenant play in the lives of those living under the new covenant? Can Christians embrace the commandment to "love the Lord your ...

    Pocket Dictionary of Ethics

    Over 300 Terms Ideas Clearly Concisely Defined

    The IVP Pocket Reference Series

    by Stanley J. Grenz and Jay T. Smith

    Ethics is as old as the city-state and as new as cyberspace. Guided by the wagon tracks of moral tradition, it nevertheless rides the cutting edge of science and technology. Increasingly it is moving into the corner offices of law, business, medicine, science and technology.

    But few of us arrive in our first ethics class--or take our seat on an ethics committee--with a grip on the range of ...

    Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics & Philosophy of Religion

    300 Terms Thinkers Clearly Concisely Defined

    The IVP Pocket Reference Series

    by C. Stephen Evans

    For philosophers, the pursuit of truth travels on precise definitions. For Christian apologists, the defense of the faith is founded on the defining Word. And for beginning students of either discipline, the difference between success and frustration begins with understanding the terms and ideas and identifying the thinkers and movements.

    Commentary on John

    Ancient Christian Texts

    by Cyril of Alexandria
    Translated by David R. Maxwell
    Edited by Joel C. Elowsky

    Cyril of Alexandria (ca. 378-444), one of the most brilliant representatives of the Alexandrian theological tradition, is best known for championing the term Theotokos (God-bearer) in opposition to Nestorius of Constantinople. Cyril's great Commentary on John, offered here in the Ancient Christian Text series in two volumes, predates the Nestorian controversy, however, and focuses its theological ...

  • Latin Commentaries on Revelation, By Victorinus of Petovium and Apringius of Beja and Caesarius of Arles and Bede the Venerable
    hardcover

    Latin Commentaries on Revelation

    Ancient Christian Texts

    by Victorinus of Petovium, Apringius of Beja, Caesarius of Arles, and Bede the Venerable
    Edited and Translated by William C. Weinrich
    Series edited by Thomas C. Oden and Gerald L. Bray

    Interest in the book of Revelation in the Western tradition is stronger and earlier than that in the East. The earliest full commentary on the Apocalypse is that of Victorinus of Petovium written in the mid to late third century by the earliest exegete to write in Latin. Victorinus interpreted Revelation in millennialist terms, a mode of interpretation already evident in works by Irenaeus, as well ...

    The Cross in Context

    Reconsidering Biblical Metaphors for Atonement

    by Brad Vaughn
    Foreword by Joshua M. McNall

    How can a doctrine about reconciliation with God create so much controversy among God's people?

    Theologian Brad Vaughn believes Christians can gain clarity and unity on the doctrine of the atonement through a renewed attention to the biblical evidence. While theological theories are necessary and useful, they can obscure reality as much as clarify it. And we're often ignorant ...

    Evangelical Postcolonial Conversations

    Global Awakenings in Theology and Praxis

    Edited by Kay Higuera Smith, Jayachitra Lalitha, and L. Daniel Hawk

    Colonialism involves more than just territorial domination. It also creates cultural space that silences and disenfranchises those who do not hold power. This process of subjugation continues today in various forms of neocolonialism, such as globalization. Postcolonialism arose in the latter half of the twentieth century to challenge the problem of coloniality at the level of our language and our ...

    Dominion and Dynasty

    A Theology of the Hebrew Bible

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Stephen G. Dempster
    Series edited by D. A. Carson

    Christian theologians rarely study the Old Testament in its final Hebrew canonical form, even though this was very likely the Bible used by Jesus and the early church. However, once read as a whole, the larger structure of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) provides a "wide-angle lens" through which its contents can be viewed. In this stimulating New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Stephen ...
