  • Collected Sermons Of David Bartlett

    $46.00

    This collection of fifty-two sermons shows beloved New Testament scholar David Bartlett at his best. Bartlett, who died in 2017, spent his career teaching and mentoring preachers at The University of Chicago Divinity School, Yale Divinity School, Union Presbyterian Seminary, and Columbia Theological Seminary, as well as serving as a pastor in American Baptist churches. Thus, he has generations of friends and former students who knew him for his quick wit, passion for justice, and deep knowledge of the Bible.

    Those traits show through in these sermons. As Nora Tisdale says in the foreword: “All of the sermons in this volume give witness to David’s passion for preaching that is solidly grounded in the biblical text. Most of them actually begin, as Karl Barth urged preachers to begin, with the biblical text. If they don’t begin there, they always get there fairly quickly. And David’s interpretations of texts often surprise the reader with their freshness and clarity.”

    In addition to individual sermons, several multiweek sermon series, including a series on Who Is Jesus? and Great Words of the Faith, are included.

  • Whats Good About This News

    $28.00

    In this study of the Gospels and the book of Galatians, David Bartlett explores how to reconcile the biblical text’s message to our contemporary context and a particular congregation’s character and need. While, as he shows, important continuities exist in the way the good news is understood throughout the New Testament, precisely what it looks like and how Christians respond to it differs between Mark, Paul, John, and the rest of the writers. Consequently, he demonstrates, preachers have options as they try to discern what news a congregation needs to hear on a particular Sunday. Including sample sermons, What’s Good about This News? shows how each of these biblical texts remains a redemptive word for today’s people.

  • Talking The Walk

    $24.99

    Here are 31 small-group meetings about well, small groups. After all, the kind of honest sharing, perspective silence, compassionate boldness, and mutual growth that are the marks of an effective and attractive small group don’t always come naturally. With the complete sessions in Talking the Walk all of them customized precisely for small groups you can lead your small group of teenagers from getting comfortable with kids they don’t usually hang with, to talking honestly, listening carefully, and understanding themselves with each other.

Perfect for outreach and evangelism groups, discipleship groups, Sunday school, midweek cell groups – any time you want small groups of your student to grow together in community, intimacy, in faith.

  • Proverbs Ecclesiastes And The Song Of Songs

    $40.00

    Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs, though entirely different books, are similar in that they provide spiritual guidance about what it means to live wisely before God. In this thorough and readable commentary, Ellen Davis points out that the writers of these books considered wisdom and the fruits of wisdom – a well-ordered life and a peaceful mind – to be within the grasp of all those wholeheartedly desiring it.

    From the confident “wise dealing” instructions in Proverbs, to the world-weariness of Ecclesiastes, to the exuberance of the Song of Songs, these books take the reader through the full range of human emotion. Their words cause one to reflect on both the ordinary and the extraordinary experiences of life: birth and death, poverty and wealth, education and work, grief and joy, human love and love of God. Though books of ancient wisdom, they continue to speak with particular power to the spiritual needs of our highly secularized age.

  • Job

    $36.00

    Wharton concludes that the function of Job never has been to provide answers but to keep the questions urgent and contemporary for all who set out to honor and serve God. At the simplest and most important level Job provides faithful people with this slim confort: it resounds with our cries of the heart and honors those cries as an authentic dimension of faithfulness.

  • 1-2 Kings

    $36.00

    By focusing his attention upon the plot of 1 and 2 Kings, Fretheim does not allow ancient history to obscure a timely, prophetic message. He convincingly shows that 1 and 2 Kings were far more concerned with real life issues than with chronicling the historical accomplishments of various monarchs.

  • Matthew

    $40.00

    The original audience for the Gospel of Matthew included converts from Judaism who wrestled with how to be faithful to Jesus Christ under difficult circumstances in a changing world. The Gospel of Matthew became a first-aid manual for this church in the midst of a struggle.

    Thomas Long identifies this first audience and its faith within the social and religious context of the day and clarifies the structure of the Gospel. Providing examples of contemporary relevance, Long helps today’s reader discern the significance of this guide for faithful living in today’s church.

    Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.

  • Hebrews And James

    $34.00

    Hebrews and James contain useful advice for Christians struggling to live a life of faith. In this book, Frances Taylor Gench guides readers through these two relevant – and inspirational – epistles. For believers who have grown weary or disillusioned with their Christian commitment, the letter to the Hebrews offers much practical assistance. In this day of dwindling church attendance and clergy burnout, a new reading of Hebrews offers an encouraging and renewed understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ. The letter of James deals primarily with the social and practical aspects of Christianity, reminding the reader that Christian faith touches every aspect of life. One of the most useful books in the New Testament, its concerns are grounded in day-to-day questions: How do we live? How should we live? and What are the implications of Christian faith for our lives? This epistle will challenge and encourage modern readers in search of a life of integrity.

  • Ezekiel

    $36.00

    The book of Ezekiel was written during a tumultuous time in Israel’s history. It begins with Ezekiel’s warning of Jerusalem’s fall and his at the time unbelievable prediction of the destruction of the temple. Ezekiel also covers the period up through the Babylonian exile. Although much in the book of Ezekiel focuses on the consequences of Israel’s rebellion against God that led to the destruction of Jerusalem, even more deals with the hope of Israel’s rebirth with divine assistance. In this book, Old Testament scholar Ronald Clements explains the world and worldview of Ezekiel. What emerges is a vision of hope and rebirth for all who seek God’s love and guidance.

  • Mark

    $36.00

    Mark, though often eclipsed by the other synoptic gospels, is considered by many scholars to be the earliest written gospel and thus closest to the historical Jesus. In his book, Douglas Hare examines Mark for modern Christians in search of the Jesus as portrayed in these earliest known writings. What emerges is a Jesus whose moral and religious teachings are of secondary importance to that of his life, death, and resurrection. Jesus as depicted in Mark serves as the window through which we may see God. God’s love for humankind, Hare contends, is made visible through Mark’s Jesus.

    $34.00

    Fred Craddock examines the letters of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. Of each epistle he asks, What kind of literature is it? Who wrote the letter? To whom was the letter written? And for what purpose was the letter written? Craddock’s answers let us draw from these often undervalued epistles on awareness of what is involved in living a Christian life in this world. We also see the similarities and differences in how Christ is portrayed in these epistles as opposed to the depiction found in other New Testament writings.

  • Deuteronomy

    $34.00

    Deuteronomy is more than a relic of ancient history. It is a living document that deals with issues relevant to the modern-day reader. They include justice and the vision of the Great Society; individual responsibility versus the importance of community; and the nature of loyalty to God and to the world. By examining these and other issues in this ancient work, readers will find striking parallels between the world of Israel several millennia ago and ours today. This absorbing and readable commentary will stimulate discussion about the Deuteronomistic prescriptions for a healthy society and their applicability to contemporary life and society.

  • Luke

    $40.00

    The Gospel of Luke is arguably the most recognizable and beloved of the gospel writings. It contains familiar stories such as the birth of Christ and the parables of the good Samaritan and the prodigal son. Its messages about inclusivity and economic justice continue to empower many in their struggles for liberation. Luke is also noted for the prominence of women in its narrative. The general familiarity with Luke, however, may impede a true sense of what this Gospel is about as a whole. Thus, New Testament scholar Sharon H. Ringe offers readers a thorough introduction to and a critical reading of Luke. Readers will gain a renewed understanding of this Gospel in light of its whole message.
