When the Israelites exclaimed, Here are your gods! at the sight of the golden calf, they were attempting to hold on to the God of their history while fashioning idols for their own purposes. In today's Western world, plenty of shiny false gods still hold power--idols of prosperity, nationalism, and self-interest. Christians desperately need to name and expose these idols. We must retrieve the biblical emphasis on idolatry and apply it anew in our journey of following Jesus. In Here Are Your Gods, Old Testament scholar Christopher J. H. Wright combines a biblical study of idolatry with practical discipleship. He calls readers to consider connections between Old Testament patterns and today's culture, especially recurring temptations to trust in political power. Now as much as ever, we need a biblically informed understanding of the many ways humans make gods for themselves, the danger of idols, and how God calls us to join him in the battle against idolatry as part of his ongoing mission to be known and worshiped by all peoples.

In recent years, a number of New Testament scholars engaged in academic historical Jesus studies have concluded that such scholarship cannot yield secure and illuminating conclusions about its subject, arguing that the search for a historically authentic Jesus has run aground.

Jesus, Skepticism, and the Problem of History brings together a stellar lineup of New Testament scholars who contend that historical Jesus scholarship is far from dead.

These scholars all find value in using the tools of contemporary historical methods in the study of Jesus and Christian origins. While the skeptical use of criteria to fashion a Jesus contrary to the one portrayed in the Gospels is methodologically unsound and theologically unacceptable, these criteria, properly formulated and applied, yield positive results that support the Gospel accounts and the historical narrative in Acts. This book presents a nuanced and vitally needed alternative to the skeptical extremes of revisionist Jesus scholarship that, on the one hand, uses historical methods to call into question the Jesus of the Gospels and, on the other, denies the possibility of using historical methods to learn about Jesus.

    Leads women through this biblical story of loyalty and love

    The Discover Together Bible Study series equips readers with meaningful devotion, biblical principles, and timeless life lessons from books of the Bible.

    Many women live with a relentless flow of anxious thoughts that distract, intrude, and exhaust--and this leaves little time to worship God or serve those around us. Trusted leader Sue Edwards points to an unexpected biblical story that can lead to a way out of these anxieties: the book of Ruth.

    Unlike how it is often presented, Ruth's story isn't a Hollywood romance and Boaz isn't the hero. God is. He shows tender care for Naomi and Ruth, remaining faithful even in hopeless situations. Moreover, their lives demonstrate how he consistently lifts women into significant roles in his redemption story, whether or not they're considered culturally important.

    Written for women of all generations and walks of life, Ruth is an inclusive Bible study with flexible format and multilevel questions to fit varied lifestyles.

    Look for the entire line of inductive Bible studies by Sue Edwards at DiscoverTogetherSeries.com. Other books in this extensive series include Hosea, Proverbs, Luke, and Ephesians.
