Christians usually focus on what Jesus has done (his life, death and resurrection) and what he will do (his second coming and reign). However, Christ is the one who not only lived, died, rose, and will come again: he is also currently seated at God's right hand. In this NSBT volume, Peter Orr explores the New Testament witness to Jesus as he is now, the exalted Christ, through the lenses of his identity, his location, and his activity.
Combining three volumes into one, Knowing God Through the Old Testament brings together three of Christopher J. H. Wright's best loved books: Knowing God the Father Through the Old Testament, Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament, and Knowing the Holy Spirit Through the Old Testament.
From the opening pages of the Bible, we learn of God as one who communicates with humankind. This introduction to theology from Anthony Thiselton is divided into three parts, first mapping the main approaches, then introducing the major ideas and thinkers, and finally giving concise explanations of all the words and phrases readers need to know.
In one systematic volume, James Montgomery Boice provides a readable overview of Christian theology. With scholarly rigor and a pastor's heart, Boice carefully opens the topics of the nature of God, the person and work of Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit in justification and sanctification, and ecclesiology and eschatology. This updated edition includes a foreword by Philip Ryken and a section-by-section study guide.
Establishing a biblical theology of circumcision, this NSBT volume by Karl Deenick shows that the concepts of righteousness and faith are central to both the New Testament understanding and the developing Old Testament understanding of circumcision. They are held together by the unfolding promise of a blameless "seed of Abraham," Jesus Christ, through whose sacrifice the promised righteousness will finally come.
Aspects of death and the afterlife are hotly debated among evangelical Christians. In this NSBT volume Paul Williamson works through Old and New Testament passages, taking care to understand the ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman backgrounds. Showing that there is exegetical support for the traditional evangelical understanding of death and the afterlife, he questions the growing popularity of alternative understandings.
The church has to subject its beliefs and practices to the renewed scrutiny of Holy Scripture and restate the truth of Scripture in ways that faithfully communicate the gospel, advance the mission of the church and empower the people of God. These essays, edited by A. T. B. McGowan, explore the whole terrain of systematic theology in order to refresh the church.
In this comprehensive volume Thomas N. Finger takes on the formidable task of making explicit the often implicit theology of the Anabaptist movement and then presenting, for the sake of the welfare of the whole contemporary Christian church, his own constructive theology.
Stanley J. Grenz and Roger E. Olson show what theology is, what tools theologians use, why every believer (advanced degrees or not) is a theologian and how the theological enterprise can be productive and satisfying.
Often treated like the younger sibling in theology, the doctrine of sanctification has spent the last few decades waiting not-so-patiently behind ideas such as election and justification by faith alone. In this volume, twelve theologians explore the meaning and significance of sanctification for contemporary evangelical theology and practice.
