If proclaiming the gospel is at root a matter of telling the truth about the way things are, then Christian witnesses are paradigmatic truth-tellers. In Bearing True Witness Craig Hovey engages modern theology, philosophy, and ethics -- including the work of Nietzsche, Foucault, and MacIntyre -- to consider how Christians see, recognize, embrace, and faithfully bear witness to the truth of Jesus Christ.
Hovey argues that when the church faithfully declares to the world that salvation is in Christ, that the world belongs to him, and that his works are good, it is essentially an ethical action. Moreover, he says, when Christians have the courage to speak honestly about the reality of God and divine truth, their witness becomes a force capable of challenging and overcoming worldly injustices and abuses of power.

Almost unknown by evangelical Christians today, Juan de Valdes and Don Benedetto were Reformers who penned what are probably the two most significant works of the Italian Reformation: "One Hundred and Ten Considerations" and "On the Benefit of Jesus Christ, Crucified." Both writers protested not merely against the corruption of the Roman Catholic church, as Martin Luther Did, but went further to challenge the Italian humanism of the Renaissance. While John Calvin's Institutes richly teach the doctrine of the atonement by faith, the thought of Juan de Valdes reflects more of a struggle and debate among a group of friends about how the participatory experience of justification by faith is actually lived out. The writings of Don Benedetto develop similar ideas about the centrality of Christ's death, and the role that assurance and joy play in the Christian life.
Abridged and edited by James M. Houston.

The first detailed exegetical treatment of Paul's letters from the emerging discipline of missional hermeneutics, Michael Gorman's Becoming the Gospel argues that Paul's letters invite Christian communities both then and now to not merely believe the gospel but to become the gospel and, in doing so, to participate in the life and mission of God.
Showing that Pauline churches were active public participants in and witnesses to the gospel, Gorman reveals the missional significance of various themes in Paul's letters. He also identifies select contemporary examples of mission in the spirit of Paul, inviting all Christians to practice Paul-inspired imagination in their own contexts.

BEFORE GOD

Many Christians today have experienced a loss of enormous significance - they no longer understand their daily lives to be lived "before God." This timely work traces the development and implications of this loss and argues for its recovery. In comparing contemporary Christians with believers of previous eras, author George Stroup sees an "eclipse" of life lived before God. This eclipse is tragic because the Bible presupposes human life as a daily, personal relationship with God. Stroup here offers help by exploring anew the biblical view that Jesus Christ models most clearly what life lived before God and neighbor looks like. He then suggests that describing Christian life as gratitude naturally evokes a sense of life lived before God. The book concludes by examining whether life before God requires a sense of God's presence - and whether it is possible to live before God even in those times when he seems to be absent. Offering thought-provoking analysis of modern faith and sound direction for spiritual renewal, Before God is perfect for churches, study groups, pastors, and individuals pursuing genuine discipleship.

BELIEVERS BAPTISM SIGN OF THE NEW COVENANT IN CHRIST

Sale 20% off

Is believer's baptism the clear teaching of the New Testament Scriptures? What are the historical and theological challenges to believer's baptism? What are the practical applications for believer's baptism today? Volume two in the NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY STUDIES IN BIBLE & THEOLOGY (NACSBT) series for pastors, advanced Bible students, and other deeply committed laypersons addresses these compelling questions.

Indeed, Believer's Baptism begins with the belief that believer's baptism (as opposed to infant baptism or other faith proclaiming methods) is the clear teaching of the New Testament. Along the way, the argument is supported by written contributions from Andreas Kostenberger, Robert Stein, Thomas Schreiner, Stephen Wellum, Steve McKinion, Jonathan Rainbow, Shawn Wright, and Mark Dever.

Users will find this an excellent extension of the long-respected NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY.

This book is a clear treatment, in nontechnical language, of the person and work of Jesus Christ, especially focusing on the nature of atonement.

Beyond Bultmann Reckoning a New Testament Theology

Sale 50% off

Rudolf Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament has stood the test of time. At the very moment modernity was threatening to splinter New Testament studies into a myriad of isolated disciplines, Bultmann was somehow able to hold history, exegesis, and theology together. Theology of the New Testament was, and still is, the definitive theological statement of a high modernist critic. In it Bultmann was as relentless in his historical judgments as he was unapologetic in laying bare the New Testament's existential claims.

Beyond Bultmann puts Bultmann's classic Theology of the New Testament to a new test . Thirteen contemporary New Testament scholars subject Bultmann's Theology to a comprehensive new reading. This fresh, critical examination of Bultmann not only places his magisterial work in a new context but also reveals the enduring features of Bultmann's achievement. Beyond Bultmann demonstrates that Theology of the New Testament, far from being a relic in the museum of interpretation, still speaks today despite its flaws.

The authors move past the Enlightenment foundational approach to offer a revolutionary methodology for doing theology in a postmodern age. Their method uses three sources: the Spirit speaking authoritatively through the biblical text, tradition providing a historical interpretive framework; and culture as context for constructive theological reflection.
