The Word of God and the Mind of Man by Ronald H. Nash

138 pages | Direct Price: $11.99 $9.00 | Paperback | Published in 1982

Summary: The last two centuries of Christian theology are the record of an evolving attack on the role of knowledge in the Christian faith. The purpose of this book is to challenge the major forms of Christian agnosticism and offer an alternative theory that makes human knowledge about God possible.

In other words, is there a relationship between the human mind and the divine mind that is sufficient to ground the communication of truth from God to humans?

Summary: Philippe, an orphan shipwright apprentice in sixteenth-century France, is perplexed by the intense religious conflict raging about him. While his friends Maurice and Sophie cling to the good news proclaimed by the church Reformers, Philippe has not yet been persuaded to abandon the teachings of the state church in which he was raised. The gospel sounds liberating at times, but can he risk believing when persecution and bloodshed inevitably follow?

The choices he and his friends make in these violent times may cost them everything.

NEW RELEASE – The Flow of the Psalms by O. Palmer Robertson

The Flow of the Psalms: Discovering Their Structure and Theology by O. Palmer Robertson

304 pages | List Price: $21.99 | Paperback | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Summary: For centuries the book of Psalms has been read as a random collection of poems with no intentional arrangement. But is this a correct understanding?

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.

If you love the psalms, Robertson will give you a better grasp of the whole Psalter and a deeper appreciation of each individual poem.

Douglas Sean O’Donnell, Queensland Theological College

192 pages | List Price: $12.99 | Paperback | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Summary: Your spiritual life should be a battle! The writer of Hebrews tells us to “hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering” (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply “holding fast” turn into such a workout of faith? Author and blogger Aimee Byrd invites us to join her in some “theological fitness” training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the “fighting grace” God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life.
