The World and the Word

Available for purchase Here, through Grace Books International

The World and The Word is a fresh introduction to the Old Testament driven largely by the fact that so much Christian preaching and teaching today increasingly ignores what is eighty percent of the Bible. Authors Eugene Merrill, Mark Rooker, and Dr. Michael Grisanti work through the world and text of the Old Testament always making three major points:

The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and doctrine that is presupposed by the New Testament.

Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding of the New Testament.

The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example, practical principles of belief and behavior for contemporary times.



Christ

Available for purchase Here, through Grace Books International

Do you wish you clearly understood the different views of the millenium and know why you believe which view you hold to? General editors and experienced bible scholars Dr. John MacArthur and Dr. Richard Mayhue help to provide a clear and convincing Biblical explanation for the interpretive approach to Scripture that results in a knowable futuristic view of Christ's millennial reign on earth. Christ's Prophetic Plans offers the reader the most explicit writing on eschatology and is perfect for pastors, bible professors, teachers, and students with a heart and mind for discovering Biblical truth. This primer takes you on a Biblical study of questions surrounding prophecy, Israel, the rapture, and the different millennial views. The fruit of such study is great as God specifically promises His blessing on those who know and obey the things of biblical prophecy.



Ecclesiastes

Available for purchase Here, through Amazon.com

What is the purpose of life? The preacher in Ecclesiastes, just like many today, is in search of life’s meaning. But as they look through their limited worldview all they find is “vanity, vanity”. Pure emptiness! They are in search for something which will have eternal value. To find it, we need to look beyond ourselves. This is what the preacher discovers; that man is powerless, yet God has a design and purpose for all things. He is the giver of all life. Ecclesiastes gives teaching on doctrines such as man, salvation and future judgment and Dr. William Barrick takes great pains to extract and explain the riches of this often overlooked book.



Strange Fire

A combination of thorough exegesis, historical context of the Charismatic movement, and pastoral guidance, Strange Fire focuses on the true power and importance of the Holy Spirit for evangelicals and rebuffs those in the Charismatic movement who tempt God’s wrath with strange fire.

The Jesus Quest

Available for purchase Here, through Amazon.com

This work examines the historical and philosophical strengths and/or weaknesses of current evangelical approaches espousing some forms of post-modernistic historiography and its resultant search for the “historical Jesus.” It demonstrates the marked undermining impact these efforts have had on the biblical text, especially the Gospels, as well inerrancy issues. It compares the Jesus Seminar’s approach with current evangelical practices of searching in terms of their evidential apologetic impact on the trustworthiness of the Gospels. A number of well-known, contemporary evangelical scholars are involved in the so-called “Third Quest” for the historical Jesus. This book raises serious questions about such an endeavor.



Has the Church Replaced Israel?

Available for purchase Here, through Grace Books International

The relationship between Israel and the church continues to be a controversial topic led by this question: Does the church replace, supersede, or fulfill the nation of Israel in God's plan, or will Israel be saved and restored with a unique identity and role? In Has the Church Replaced Israel?, author Michael J. Vlach evaluates the doctrine of replacement theology (also known as supersessionism) down through history but ultimately argues in favor of the nonsupersessionist position. Thoroughly vetting the most important hermeneutical and theological issues related to the Israel/church relationship, Dr. Vlach explains why, "there are compelling scriptural reasons in both testaments to believe in a future salvation and restoration of the nation Israel."
