Recap of New Releases from March

1. The Tri­une God edited by Ronald L. Kohl
Price: $14.99
Page Count: 352
Paper­back
Sum­mary: While the work­ings of the Trin­ity chal­lenge our under­stand­ing, Bible-believing Chris­tians can­not let them­selves down­play the Trin­ity or ignore it. We find the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each present through­out the pages of Scripture—and each equally deserv­ing of our love and reverence.
This book, while not attempt­ing to define or explain the Trin­ity, ded­i­cates equal space to exam­in­ing the qual­i­ties and roles of each mem­ber as we find them in the Bible, to help us grow in our knowl­edge and under­stand­ing. To do so, the Alliance of Con­fess­ing Evan­gel­i­cals has gath­ered essays from lead­ing pas­tors and preach­ers on:
GOD THE FATHER
  • Bryan Chapell                    The Great­ness of God • The Love of God
  • Richard D. Phillips             The Holi­ness of God • The Wrath of God
  • Kevin DeY­oung                  The Truth of God
GOD THE SON
  • D. A. Car­son                      The Glory of the Son • Our Risen Savior
  • Joel R. Beeke                    The Incar­nate Word • The Cross of Christ
  • Iain M. Duguid                   The Life and Min­istry of Jesus
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • D. A. Car­son                      Streams of Liv­ing Water
  • Michael S. Hor­ton              The Age of the Spirit
  • Philip Gra­ham Ryken         Born of the Spirit
  • Hywel Jones                      Life in the Spirit
  • R. C. Sproul                       Holy Spirit, Counselor
These addresses will make us more famil­iar with each per­son of the Trin­ity and will show us how to rightly respond to each one. The more we know how to relate to the Trin­ity, the more we can enrich our love for our tri­une God.

 

2. Lov­ing in God’s Story of Grace by Eliz­a­beth Reynolds Turnage
Price: $12.99
Page Count: 144
Series: Liv­ing Story
Spi­ral bound
Sum­mary: Love. Peo­ple have tried to under­stand it since the begin­ning of time—yet our cul­ture yearns for love more than ever. Is it pos­si­ble to under­stand and, more impor­tantly, to live love in a world des­per­ate for it? Eliz­a­beth Tur­nage reminds us that God alone can show and help us to under-stand love—for he not only loves us, but also empow­ers us to love as well. In pre­vi­ous stud­ies, Eliz­a­beth has helped us to learn God’s story of grace  and to live it out our­selves. In this final Liv­ing Story book, she teaches us the ulti­mate joy of liv­ing in God’s story of grace: lov­ing as God loves us. Begin­ning by search­ing the depths and heights of God’s love, she moves on to show us where we fit in and how, by con­tin­u­ing to walk in God’s story, we can learn to love too. If you know God’s story of grace and where your story fits in, learn how to take the next step and make your story big­ger than it’s ever been before!

 

3. The Story: The Bible’s Grand Nar­ra­tive of Redemption
One Year Daily Devo­tional for Students
by Jon Niel­son
Price: $14.99
Page Count: 384
Paper­back
Sum­mary: Have you ever tried read­ing through the entire Bible, only to bail part­way through a huge list of names or a chap­ter on infec­tious skin diseases? The sixty-six books of the Bible may seem pretty dif­fer­ent from each other, but they actu­ally tell one story—a story with one Author, one Hero, and one key plotline. (And yes, some­times skin dis­eases do play an impor­tant part!) This year­long, daily study of God’s Word guides you through five acts of his grand story of redemp­tion. Although you won’t read every chap­ter in the Bible, daily Scrip­ture and devo­tional read­ings will equip you to under­stand the unity and devel­op­ment of God’s story and to grow in your per­sonal dis­ci­pline of Bible study and prayer.

 

4. 1 & 2 Samuel: Rise of the Lord’s Anointed by Kay Gabrysch
Price: $14.99
Page Count: 464
Series: Tapes­try
Paper­back
Sum­mary: From the pri­vate sor­rows of Han­nah to the action-packed reign of King David, the nar­ra­tives of 1 and 2 Samuel make for a grip­ping read. But how do you best study these sto­ries? What bear­ing do they have on Christ, the New Tes­ta­ment, or your life today? Kay Gabrysch answers these ques­tions while help­ing us develop a last­ing frame­work for read­ing bib­li­cal narratives.
  • Recur­ring “big ques­tions” explore char­ac­ter­i­za­tion, set­ting, world­view, con­flict, res­o­lu­tion, and rela­tion to Christ.
  • Ques­tions spe­cific to the pas­sages cross-reference to the rest of Scripture.
  • Appli­ca­tion ques­tions go straight to your heart and life.

 

5. How Did Evil Come into the World? by William Edgar
Price: $4.99
Page Count: 32
Series: Chris­t­ian Answers to Hard Questions
Book­let
Sum­mary: In our world things are not the way they are sup­posed to be. If God is per­fect, lov­ing, and pow­er­ful, why does he allow this world to be so painful and imper­fect? Scrip­ture pro­vides sat­is­fy­ing answers to these questions.

 

6. Did Adam Exist? by Vern S. Poythress
Price: $4.99
Page Count: 40
Series: Chris­t­ian Answers to Hard Questions
Book­let
Sum­mary: Can we still believe in a his­tor­i­cal Adam? Vern Poythress offers a the­o­log­i­cally and sci­en­tif­i­cally informed eval­u­a­tion of the claims that genetic analy­ses show Adam could not have existed.

 

7. How Can I Know for Sure? by David B. Garner
Price: $4.99
Page Count: 32
Series: Chris­t­ian Answers to Hard Questions
Book­let
Sum­mary: To many, the only remain­ing cer­tainty in our world is uncer­tainty. Plu­ral­ism has con­vinced us that unchang­ing truth, if it exists at all, is entirely beyond our grasp. All we are left with is a cir­cu­lar argu­ment in which all the answers come from us. Only the author­i­ta­tive voice of Scrip­ture can dis­pel such clouds of doubt and con­fu­sion. Gar­ner shows us that we can know truth, and know it with assurance.

NEW RELEASES — 3 Booklets — Christian Answers to Hard Questions Series

Here are 3 newly released book­lets in the Chris­t­ian Answers to Hard Ques­tions series.

Writ­ten to equip and strengthen laypeo­ple in their defense of the faith, Chris­t­ian Answers to Hard Ques­tions chal­lenges con­tem­po­rary oppo­si­tion to Chris­tian­ity with con­cise, prac­ti­cal answers.

 

1. How Did Evil Come into the World? by William Edgar

Price: $4.99
Book­let
Sum­mary: In our world things are not the way they are sup­posed to be. If God is per­fect, lov­ing, and pow­er­ful, why does he allow this world to be so painful and imper­fect? Scrip­ture pro­vides sat­is­fy­ing answers to these questions.

“Edgar gives wise coun­sel in sort­ing through major issues about evil. Using a bib­li­cally grounded world­view, he ably dis­tin­guishes evil as an intru­sion into a world that God orig­i­nally cre­ated good and shows the inad­e­quacy of mod­ern mate­ri­al­ism. He gives hope on the basis of Christ’s work of redemp­tion. He also pro­vides use­ful guid­ance about the death and suf­fer­ing of ani­mals and about science.”
- Vern S. Poythress, Pro­fes­sor of New Tes­ta­ment Inter­pre­ta­tion, West­min­ster The­o­log­i­cal Sem­i­nary, Philadelphia

“Poythress boldly and knowl­edge­ably tack­les some of the sci­en­tific rea­son­ing that has been used to argue that humans are noth­ing more than advanced apes. . . . He exem­pli­fies the right use of crit­i­cal think­ing in sci­ence and in faith.”
- C. John Collins, Pro­fes­sor of Old Tes­ta­ment, Covenant The­o­log­i­cal Sem­i­nary, St. Louis
