New York Times best-selling author Darrell Bock teams with Daniel Wallace to help lay readers separate fact from fiction and help from hype in the recent best-selling Jesus books and television specials.

There is a quest going on. It's the quest to reduce Jesus to a mythic legend or to nothing more than a mere man. Scholars such as Elaine Pagels and James Tabor are using such recent discoveries as the Gospel of Judas and the Gospel of Thomas to argue that the Christ of Christianity is a contrived figure and that a different Christ-one human and not divine-is the "true" Christ.

In his trademark easy-to-understand style Darrell Bock takes on these attempts to redefine Jesus in a convincing, winsome way that will help readers understand that the orthodox understanding of Christ and his divinity is as trustworthy and sure as it ever was. Joining Bock for the first time is fellow scholar Daniel Wallace.

There are many things that make up a great leader. The ability to motivate, to see the big picture, to delegate. But perhaps just as important, if not more so, is the leader's emotional intelligence (EQ). How we feel impacts how we lead, and how those we lead feel about themselves when they're around us affects how well they follow our leadership. It follows then that if we want to be the most effective leaders, we must be emotionally mature.

In this practical book, church leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs shows church and ministry leaders how to assess, understand, and improve both their own EQ and that of their followers, so that they can inspire the very best in their churches and organizations.

For many years, cross-cultural missions were directed to people in the countries of their birth, generally in Majority World areas. Foreigners present among or around the intended focus of ministry were not viewed as part of mission ministry. Diaspora missions focus on these peoples, who are now actually and virtually in more accessible places. This book will help you understand the dynamics behind this accelerated movement of peoples from one region to another, biblical principles and precedents that guide ministry today, the application of social and communication studies, and actual cases of ministry to and with diaspora peoples.

The relationship between Israel and the church is a crucial reference point in theology, especially in distinguishing between dispensational and nondispensational ways of thinking. The thesis of this book is that Israel and the church are distinct theological institutions that have arisen in the historical progress of divine revelation. But they are also related as successive phases of a redemptive program that is historically progressive and eschatologically converging. The approach to these issues here is neither polemical nor apologetic; rather, it anticipates a convergence among evangelical scholars in the recognition of both continuity and discontinuity in the Israel-church relationship. This book has three purposes: - To offer a contemporary dispensational treatment of that relationship through an exegetical examination of key texts with a focus on theological concerns - To foster genuine dialogue with nondispensational thinkers regarding major biblical themes tied to the plan of God - To identify the changes in dispensational thought that have developed since the publication of Charles Ryrie's book Dispensationalism Today in 1965

In this updated version of his best-selling book, Swindoll poignantly and honestly portrays the need for authentic love and transparency.

In a world that focuses on images, sound bites, and quick impressions, we have forgotten how to really know one another. Many of us recoil from true intimacy. Author Charles Swindollw writes, Full self-disclosure is something we tend to avoid at all costs. In fact, we are prone to keep people out of our private worlds by wearing masks?not physical masks?but psychological ones. For example . . .

  • The I'm tough mask hides weakness and fear.
  • The I'm holy mask hides our struggle with temptation.
  • The I can handle it mask hides bewilderment and hurt.
  • Removing your masks and relinquishing your defenses are essential aspects of the Christian experience. And Dropping Your Guard portrays Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll at his best, delving into the treasures of God's Word to reveal strategic principles for building open and genuine relationships.

    Chuck Swindoll says, My desire is that our Lord will open your eyes to the value of authentic relationships, and that His Spirit will free you to be vulnerable as you drop your guard with others in the family of God. I assure you, the result is worth the effort.

    The apostle Paul lived for several years in Ephesus, a port city in the wealthy capital of the Roman Empire's province of Asia. From there he brought the good news of Jesus Christ to people in surrounding cities and towns. He mentored a cosmopolitan group of Jews and Gentiles from all over the world who believed in Jesus. An altercation over false idols required him to leave before he wanted to, but the people he loved remained in his heart and prayers. In the first half of his letter to these believers, Paul explains what it means to have a new identity in Christ. In the second half, he tells how to live in light of this identity. And while cultural dynamics may differ between the past and present and his geographical context and ours, Paul's words have great application for us today. Knowing who we are, our identity in Christ and what that means, is essential to how we live. Earl Grey with Ephesians takes readers back to first-century Ephesus to explore the answers Scripture provides to the questions "Who am I?" and "What am I here for?" as well as how to live in light of these great realities. Leader's guide included.

    Amid confusion and turmoil, unearth the hope in Scripture

    Ecclesiastes can be a difficult book. Women struggle with the writer's laments on the meaninglessness of life, the pointlessness of work, and the lack of connection from generation to generation. They may think there are too many other books offering spiritual encouragement to waste time on this skeptical book of Scripture. But is that the whole picture?

    Sue Edwards says there's more here than meets the eye. In fact, if studied properly, Ecclesiastes can lead women to an optimistic outlook on life. It can help women abandon bad habits, hang-ups, and foolish perspectives that keep them in bondage to everything that threatens to destroy the ultimate joy Jesus wants for them. All they need are the proper interpretive tools for this valuable book.

    Edwards walks women through Ecclesiastes, revealing nuggets of wisdom about life and God, as well as dire warnings on what to avoid. Any woman who wants to know God and live according to His design, from new believers to veterans of the faith, will discover anew one of the richest sources of wisdom ever written.
