In this collection of articles written over forty years, Packer sets out his beliefs about the authority of Scripture and the principles that should be applied when interpreting it. Important topics such as the adequacy of human language, upholding the unity of Scripture, and challenges in Biblical interpretation are considered in the first two sections: "God's Inerrant Word" and "Interpreting the Word." In the final section, "Preaching the Word," Packer turns his attention to pastoral leaders and the importance of correct and responsible expository preaching.

See it. Study it. Do it. Many Christians focus on mechanical application of the Scriptures. In Experience Your Bible, the McDowells proclaim God's original design--the Scriptures are his way to reveal himself so he can enjoy a relationship with people.

The authors show how the Bible can radically transform believers' lives:

  • Intimacy. God created humans such that an intimate relationship with him is their only route to meaningful life. His written Word enables this relationship.
  • Relational experience. We must obey God's commands. Yet he also wants us to relationally experience things like acceptance, joy, and comfort with him and other believers.
  • Growth in love. Josh and Sean highlight the Holy Spirit's role in illuminating the Scriptures. They present proven tools to help readers study and "accurately handle the word of truth." Above all, they emphasize that study is the journey to help Christians more deeply love the author of the Bible, God himself.
  • When Christians experience the Bible and its author, they find wisdom, meaning, and fulfillment in life.

    A key tool for pastors, leaders, parents, and youth workers--anyone wanting to proclaim and experience the life- and culture-changing Christianity the Bible reveals.

    Says Roland Murphy in the preface, I began this series of essays on the Old Testament with an eye to the traditions of the Carmelite rule and way of life, and he proceeds to focus on key ideas in the Carmelite tradition that have, as well, universal appeal" such as land, prophets, wisdom, prayer, the poor, and mysticism. He unfolds the background of important themes in our biblical heritage" including Speech and Silence, The Psalms and Prayer, and Who Are the Poor?" and reveals their rich contribution to our spiritual experience.

    Gadamer Hermeneutics Tradition & Reason

    $24.00
    Hans-Georg Gadamer is one of the leading philosophers in the world today. Since the publication in 1960 of his magnum opus Truth and Method, his philosophical hermeneutics has been the focus of a great deal of attention and controversy. His ideas have been applied to questions of interpretation in the study of art and literature, to issues of knowledge and objectivity in the social sciences, and even to reevaluations of philosophy itself. This book is a systematic introduction to Gadamer's work, presented with a clarity of exposition and argument that makes it rewarding to non-philosophers and philosophers alike. It is constructed around a series of debates on historicism, authorial intention, subjectivism, ideology, and the "New Pragmatism," and it pays particular attention to how Gadamer's work has been interpreted and criticized by such philosophers as Hirsch, Habermas, Apel, and Rorty. The dialogic form, which is in itself a central feature of hermeneutic theory, gives the book an immediacy that textual exegesis cannot achieve. This is the first book in the series, Key Contemporary Thinkers, which will make available the ideas of some of the most influential philosophers of our time. The series will cut across academic disciplines and will include books on European, British, and American thinkers.
