Two thousand years ago, under the cover of a dark night, a gray-haired Jewish Rabbi approached a much younger man to inquire about matter that were deeply troubling him. That conversation, between Nicodemus and Jesus of Nazareth, is the subject of this book. The author is concerned about millions of people who are in the same position today that Nicodemus found himself in-religious, but not redeemed by God. A careful and prayerful reading of this book can be used of God to open the eyes of many to see clearly that their religion is empty and vain, but salvation can and will be found in Jesus Christ alone.

In this sequel to Heaven, How I got Here, Colin S. Smith masterfully retells the gospel story from the perspective of Judas Iscariot.
Judas, who betrayed Jesus, and Peter, who denied Jesus, both hit a low point in their lives when it looked as if they were done with Jesus forever. Yet these men responded in very different ways. Judas separated from the other disciples and gave up on faith in Christ completely. Peter chose a different and a better path.

Introducing Paul: The Man, His Mission and His Message

Many Christians who know and love the Bible think they know the apostle Paul. He's a theological master, a pastoral mentor, a spiritual adviser and a missionary hero. Yet just when we think we have him in our grasp, he slips through our fingers. At the point where we suppose we have finally understood him, Paul again confounds us. But he also beckons us to explore God's ways more deeply. Michael Bird suggests that if the Paul we claim to know looks and sounds a lot like us, it's probably a warning light that we don't know him as well as we think we do. But if we let Paul be Paul, allowing him to speak for himself in his language, on his terms and for his purposes, then we stand a chance of meeting him anew. Introducing Paul is an animated and penetrating survey of Paul's life and teaching. It covers all the basics students need, while offering new insights with a light touch. Blending life and study, Bird aims to get us excited about reading Paul's letters, sharing his gospel and living the Christian life the way he thought it should be lived. For beginning students and laypeople, Introducing Paul is a valuable entrance into the contemporary study of Paul.

JESUS & PAUL RECONNECTED

$24.00
The six essays in this volume consider the relationship between Jesus and Paul from diverse angles, bringing fresh insights into an area of study that has long lain dormant. Written by established scholars, Jesus and Paul Reconnected explores historical congruity between Christ and his apostle and examines potential connections in their thought, relationships, and practices. Topics considered include the grace of God, treatment of the poor, law and gospel, Peter's connection between the two, the Last Supper, and the death of Christ.

Todd Still brings these superb scholars together in hopes of encouraging further conversation and contributing to this growing area of New Testament research. The result is a new and stimulating exploration of these two extraordinary figures of the faith.

Who do you say that I am?

Whether or not you know it, this question, posed by Jesus, is the most important question you'll ever answer. But it's not only a question for those who haven't trusted Jesus for salvation; it's also one for those who call themselves followers of Christ.

Many will claim to know the answer, but even Peter, who answered it correctly, didn't fully understand who Jesus was until later. And in a culture two millennia removed, Jesus' true identity and purpose are often obscure, making His question relevant and vital, both for non-Christians and Christians alike.

This Bible Companion is designed to help you answer His question, so that you might know Jesus?the real Jesus as revealed in the Bible. But be warned. This book doesn't offer a mere biographical study because He was no mere man. Regardless of what you think of Jesus, encountering Him in the Bible is a mind-changing and life-altering event.

So, if you're ready to answer Jesus' question truthfully, then this Bible Companion will serve as a good guide to His life and teachings. And it can help you grow to know Him better than you ever have.

Mary: What the Bible Really Says

Sale 20% off
Christian are divided over what to think of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Some exalt and venerate her to the extent that she seems to transcend humanity. Crowds gather wherever people claim to have seen a mystical appearance of Mary.

On the other hand, others reject such a high view of Mary and instead neglect her. For many uninterested in looking seriously at her life or character, Mary is little more than a figurine in the Nativity set that is dusted off each year and quickly put away. Yet how can we simply ignore her when the Bible says so much about her godliness and obedience?

This book provides a balanced, true picture of Mary -- a portrait drawn from Scripture with both the overlay of tradition and the dust of neglect removed. Where needed, there are correctives to historical church teaching, but the focus is the clear light of Scripture.

Be prepared to have your own life changed. God is still seeking men and women like Mary who will be obedient to his call.
