“Mark Seifrid takes a distinctive approach to the commentator’s task: rather than cataloging and evaluating the opinions of modern scholars, he chooses to focus on his own fresh, stimulating, and very definite interpretation of the letter, its theology, and its significance for fundamental issues of hermeneutics.”—Douglas J. Moo
“Mats Wahlberg’s Revelation as Testimony is extraordinary — extraordinary in its bold challenge to the widespread assumption by theologians that ‘propositional revelation’ is an untenable idea, extraordinary in the skill with which it employs recent discussions by philosophers to develop the idea of revelation as testimony, extraordinary in the cogency and lucidity of its argumentation. No responsible discussion of revelation henceforth — whether by theological liberals or by theological conservatives — can fail to take account of Wahlberg’s penetrating discussion. I predict that it will be a ‘game changer.’”—Nicholas Wolterstorff
“Kenneth Keathley and Mark Rooker have given careful attention to the issues surrounding man and his origins. This book deals with the biblical witness, the scientific questions, and the apologetic application. Christians disagree on many points regarding these issues, but this book is a valuable tool regardless of where one comes down on the age of the earth or the finer questions of the relationship between science and exegesis.”—Russell D. Moore
Pastors have been entrusted with leading the people of God. The shepherds of God’s flock must protect them from and guide them through the many dangers believers face. Although ultimately the Church is led by Christ, pastors are to provide godly examples of what it means to be a follower of the Lord. Consequently, who leads the church, the type of authority they are given, how they relate to one another, to whom they are accountable, and how they are selected are of utmost importance to the life and health of God’s people. This book provides the biblical, historical, theological, and practical foundation of the crucial task of leading God’s people.

Readers will gain a deeper understanding of both current and future events in the Middle East as described in both the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament.
An excellent introduction to one of the world’s most important authors, this volume vividly reveals – as none of his novels can on their own – the common thread of the great God-haunted Russian’s questioning faith. Drawn from The Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot, Crime and Punishment, and The Adolescent, the seventeen selections are each prefaced by an explanatory note. Newcomers will find in these pages a rich, accessible sampling. Dostoyevsky devotees will be pleased to find some of the writer’s deepest, most compelling passages in one volume.Illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg, preface by J.I. Packer, and foreword by Malcolm Muggeridge.
