“Every now and then a book is written that is truly on time and speaks to a critical need in our lives. Every now and then a book is written that truly speaks what many of us in the body of Christ are thinking. Well, Reviving the Black Church is such a book. Thabiti Anyabwile has written a book that should be required reading for every pastor, every leader, and every member of a black church!”—Fred Luter, Jr.

Regarding the Apollos Old Testament Commentary Series:
“At last! A commentary series that combines the best of biblical scholarship with a passion for the message of the text. Besides, it actually answers the questions I ask when I read the Scriptures. This series by the finest evangelical scholars is designed for students and pastors who are serious about understanding the Old Testament in its context and translating its message for the church in the twenty-first century.”—Daniel Block
“Begin with the imago Dei. . . . Work that out across the canon, and you discover that light shines on many topics, not least the nature of idolatry. This book manages to blend some elements of systematic theology with careful biblical theology to produce a study that is wonderfully evocative.”—D. A. Carson
“You cannot read Healed at Last and not be irresistibly drawn to the cross…It’s simply the best thing I’ve ever read on the issue of healing in the Christian spiritual walk. It really is a wonderful book that clearly sets out a deeply real, a deeply touching and above all theological understanding of healing”—Ken Simpson
The essays in Part 1 of this book consider aspects of ‘preaching the word’. Those in Part 2 reflect on various aspects of Christian ministry, with some paying special attention to ministries fostered by Phillip Jensen during his many years of preaching the word and letting it do the work in people’s lives.

In Wisdom in Leadership Craig Hamilton shares what he has learned through many years of being a student of the Bible and theology; a discerning reader of books on leadership; a keen observer of life and the way things work; and a loving leader of the people God has placed around him.
This book is a goldmine of helpful insights for pastors and anyone else with leadership responsibilities in their church. With 78 chapters covering an extensive range of topics, this may well be the only book on church leadership you’ll ever need to read.
“This book is a great idea. It’s wonderfully practical, helpful, and relevant. I hope we can give it away to our new members. Tony has given us a necessary reminder on the importance of walking into church with the right heart, the right head, and the right spirit.”—Kevin DeYoung
Dispensationalism has long been associated with careful interpretation and grammatical-historical sensitivity to the Scriptures. But in recent decades it has been the target of critique. Dispensationalism and the History of Redemption offers a thorough and convincing look at God’s plan for humanity.
Brought together in one volume are all the critical elements to know:
- An introduction to dispensationalism—its terms, biblical support, and place within Christian orthodoxy.
- The history and influence of dispensationalism—from its roots in John Nelson Darby to its global influence through mission movements.
- The hermeneutics of dispensationalism— the interpretive principles behind the system.
- Dispensationalism and redemptive history—the story of salvation traced through the Old and New Testaments, including their unity and diversity in relation to Christ.
Each of the world-changing figures who stride across these pages—Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa, and Rosa Parks—is an exemplary model of true womanhood. Teenaged Joan of Arc followed God’s call and liberated her country, dying a heroic martyr’s death. Susanna Wesley had nineteen children and gave the world its most significant evangelist and its greatest hymn-writer, her sons John and Charles. Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. And Rosa Parks’ deep sense of justice and unshakeable dignity and faith helped launch the twentieth-century’s greatest social movement.
