An Invitation to Academic Studies / Jay D. Green
Christians agree that our faith should inform and shape our learning. But have we ever considered the ways that academic study could cultivate and nourish our faith? When Christian education elevates theology and philosophy at the expense of other disciplines, we miss vital opportunities to explore how those disciplines can help us understand God’s kingdom.
Jay Green believes academic study is something to be not just endured, but embraced for its potential in studying God’s world. He explores the church’s relationship with the academy, and different approaches Christians have proposed to it, before proposing an approach of his own to help us not ignore or flee from scholarly study, but use it for God.
On the Brink / Clay Werner
"Realistic, gospel-grounded, grace-saturated encouragement for embattled and weary pastors.... The antidote to the temptation to drop out of the shepherd's costly calling is not renewal of our own teeth-gritted resolution, but a fuller view of the panorama of Jesus and his costly love for me."
—Dennis E. Johnson, PhD, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California
"I commend this wonderful book to the many wounded warriors in Gospel ministry I meet every day—clergy and laity."
—Michael A. Milton, Ph.D., Fourth President/Chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary.
"A powerful reality check for those just entering the ministry, as well as a valuable source of encouragement to those who are struggling in the trenches after many years of service."
—Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Grove City College, Grove City, Pennsylvania
"This work by Clay Werner is life infusing, heart enflaming, and ministry anchoring.... Weary servants of the most high God, come and refresh in the Word as a vulnerable and exegetically grounded pastor helps you see Him and yourself. You will find this book is strong medicine for the hard places in ministry and life."
—Joe Novenson, Senior Pastor, Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee
Time Travel to the Old Testament / Chris Sinkinson
'In an easy style, Chris Sinkinson shows how the books of the Old Testament are realistic and relevant for today. Without avoiding difficulties, he demonstrates how modern archaeological discoveries aid understanding of the Bible.'
