Drawing from years of experience training young faculty members, professor Michael S. Lawson gathers together the best of educational research and practices, leavened with the yeast of Christian theology, so that readers are equipped to put the “teaching puzzle” together. Ideal for aspiring professors in Christian higher education, as well as all who enter the teaching profession, so they may learn artful teaching and careful administration.
Following his critically acclaimed book Jesus the Temple, Nicholas Perrin here offers an insightful theological contribution to Jesus studies that synthesizes the best in traditional/conservative and liberal reconstructions of Jesus’s life and teaching. Some view Jesus as an eschatological prophet (conservative tradition) while others view him as a teacher of wisdom (liberal tradition). Perrin identifies the priesthood of Jesus as a mediating understanding that sheds crucial light on the kingdom of God. By viewing Jesus as priest, we understand that the central aim of God’s kingdom is not the salvation of individual souls or the creation of a better society but rather the establishment of authentic worship.
“The providential role of the heretics in ancient Christianity was to challenge the worshiping community to return to the classic doctrinal consensus on scriptural teaching. The task is to mark boundaries to teachings that are other than the right teaching according to the best minds of the church. David Wilhite has made these boundaries much clearer, enabling readers today to better grasp the Word of God the Father incarnate in the Son by the power of the Spirit.”—Thomas C. Oden
“Gregory Graybill has written a fine, vivid, scholarly yet readable biography of Philipp Melanchthon, which fills a large gap in recent English language writing on the Reformation. This is an ideal place to start to get to know a man whose influence on Reformation Europe was huge.”—Graham Tomlin
Volume 1 of The Annotated Luther series contains writings that defined the roots of reform set in motion by Martin Luther, beginning with the Ninety-Five Theses (1517) through The Freedom of a Christian (1520). Included are treatises, letters, and sermons written from 1517 to 1520, which set the framework for key themes in all of Luther’s later works. Also included are documents that reveal Luther’s earliest confrontations with Rome and his defense of views and perspectives that led to his excommunication by Leo X in 1520.
“Rooted in a careful treatment of all the relevant prophetic texts and with a keen awareness to the development of redemptive history, Bandy and Merkle have given us what may be the standard text on biblical prophecy for years to come.”—Sam Storms
This concise and engaging book compares our modern confusion about humanity with God’s liberating and positive view revealed to us in the Bible. And it points us to the perfect man, Jesus Christ, as the measure of what it means to be truly human.
“The decisive way to counter error in biblical understanding is to outflank it at the level of its own arbitrary first principles, and to set biblically based first principles in their place. Dr. Roach shows us very fully how Carl Henry did this, by setting current hermeneutical fashions in the corrective frame of an Augustinian, Bible-based, cognitive-propositional account of how God reveals, and how we receive, his word of truth. As Henry was masterful in doing this on the grand scale, so Roach is masterful in vindicating Henry against those who would critique or ignore him. This is a very valuable piece of work.”—J. I. Packer
