For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Graham’s decades-long ministry. This book is a mosaic of those dialogues—a glimpse into a life of fame and family, prayer and politics, temptations, faith, and spiritual growth. Graham also tells engaging stories of his earliest crusades, his involvement in the civil rights movement, and his role as spiritual mentor to American presidents.
For many, the historical-critical method has released a host of threats to Christian faith and confession. In Pandora’s Box Opened, however, Roy Harrisville argues that despite the evils brought upon biblical interpretation by the historical-critical method, there is still hope for it as a discipline.
This full-scale text incorporates the keen missional insights of Lesslie Newbigin, David Bosch and other formative thinkers. It will be a valued resource not only for those in crosscultural contexts but also for those engaged in reevangelizing the West.
In his final book which he calls his “last will and testament,” Jim Sire provides for readers a culmination of his career in apologetics. Fresh material that outlines his maturation as a scholar since the publication of The Universe Next Door, Apologetics Beyond Reason is no mere repackaging of previous work. Basing the book around the argument, “There is everything. Therefore there is a God. Either you see this or you don’t,” Sire walks the reader through his apologetic development.
In Reforming Mercy Ministry, Ted Rivera identifies thirty-three ways we can engage the world with Christian compassion. And he offers fresh insight into our impulse to help, so that we do more good than harm. All the while he keeps the second great commandment close to the first: we love our neighbors, Rivera reminds us, because God first loved us—and because God loves our neighbors more than we do.
“For decades Os Guinness has been one of the most nuanced, realistic, yet hopeful voices calling Christians to engagement with culture. This latest volume from him should not be missed by anyone. Os summarizes some of the most helpful recent discussions, updates many of his own lifelong challenges to the church and provides many fresh insights. Highly recommended.”—Tim Keller
The Early Text of the New Testament aims to examine and assess from our earliest extant sources the most primitive state of the New Testament text now known. What sort of changes did scribes make to the text? What is the quality of the text now at our disposal? What can we learn about the nature of textual transmission in the earliest centuries? In addition to exploring the textual and scribal culture of early Christianity, this volume explores the textual evidence for all the sections of the New Testament. It also examines the evidence from the earliest translations of New Testament writings and the citations or allusions to New Testament texts in other early Christian writers.
“Those who come to faith in their teens or later (as so many do) have a major task on their hands. For such, Dr Sinkinson’s book will shine as a bright beacon. When I say that he skips his merry way through a remarkably full summary of Old Testament life, thought, history and context, I do not imply superficiality but call attention to an enviable lightness of touch and style.”—Alec Motyer
“This book provides a powerful reality check for those just entering the ministry as well as a valuable source of encouragement to those who are struggling in the trenches after many years of service.”—Iain Duguid
