Each volume in the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series (EGGNT) begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
Every day we are faced with the needs of those around us. Emotional. Physical. Spiritual. What are we to do about it? Are these problems for our pastors to address or is there a way for the church member to make an impact that will last?
In I Will, bestselling author Thom S. Rainer answers these questions by offering nine simple traits that all church members can incorporate into your life no matter your background, stage of life, or sense of capability.

“The resurgence of interest in biblical theology owes much, perhaps most, to Graeme Goldsworthy. Who better, then, to inaugurate Crossway’s Short Studies in Biblical Theology? And there is no better way for such a series to start than with the Son of God, in whom all the promises are yes and amen.”—James M. Hamilton Jr.
In the tradition of Blue Like Jazz and The Myth of Certainty, this book is for Christians disenchanted with a rote, mundane faith that has grown too rigid or too hollow. In his personal, observational style, Piper invites the active questioner and searcher to pursue a path toward real belief by getting faith, doubt, certainty, and unbelief.
“This book is a treat. Just when you might have thought there wasn’t much more to say about Lewis, Tolkien, and their friends, we have a rich and diverse collection of reflections, reminiscences, expositions, and engagements from angles both expected and unexpected. By retaining the spoken style of the original contributions to the Oxford C. S. Lewis Society (not quite a new Inklings, not quite a new Socratic Club, but sharing the heritage of both), the editors give us the sense that we are there in Oxford, thinking through issues old and new, always being challenged to fresh visions of literature, faith, and a hundred other topics. There is here much to ponder, much to praise.”—Rt. Revd. Prof. N. T. Wright
“We ignore these letters to our peril, for they have an urgent message for the church today. . . . [Everyone] interested in the message of the Scriptures will benefit from this theologically faithful and pastorally applicable work.”—Thomas R. Schreiner
Renowned theologian John Frame sheds much-needed light on the message and method of genuinely Christian apologetics in this landmark title. He insightfully examines apologetics in terms of proof, defense, and offense and clarifies the relationships of reason, proofs, and evidences to faith, biblical authority, and the lordship of Christ.
Two subjects of particular note are Frame’s fresh look at probability arguments and a stimulating investigation into the problem of evil.
Some of the most valuable elements of this book are Frame’s extensive use of Scripture and his presentation of specific lines of argument. There is also a model dialogue in the concluding chapter that shows how these lines of argument work in conversation.
This is an extensively redeveloped and expanded version of Frame’s previous work, Apologetics to the Glory of God.
“There was a point in my pastoral ministry when I looked for a steady hand on mine as I tried to navigate the swirling waters of mercy ministries in an urban setting while remaining deeply committed to heralding God’s Word through the exposition of Scripture. Not surprisingly, I found it in Tim Keller’s Ministries of Mercy.”—John Piper
O. Palmer Robertson equips us to see a clear redemptive-historical progression that develops across the five books of Psalms. With the aid of charts in full color, he demonstrates how an intentional structure is indicated by elements such as the placement of acrostic psalms, strategic couplings of Messianic psalms with Torah psalms, and the grouping of psalms by topics.

EnGendered is a winsome and eloquent theology of gender. Writing in a calm, confident, and positive tone, and concluding that gender difference is a gift from God that should be celebrated, enGendered goes a long way in speaking the truth in love and avoiding the shrill tone of polemics and emotionalism that too often characterizes discussions on this topic. To summarize, this volume speaks to Christians who want to know what the Bible says about gender difference and why. It also is of value for people who struggle with same-sex attraction but want to follow Christ.
