New Release by Marvin Olasky — Lament for a Father: The Journey to Understanding and Forgiveness

Lament for a Father: The Journey to Understanding and Forgiveness by Marvin Olasky

120 pages | List Price: $12.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Marvin played catch with his father, Eli, only once—it didn’t end well. Eli never laughed, rarely spoke with his son, and was periodically lambasted by his wife for his lack of ambition. How had a Harvard graduate failed to achieve all that he had once hoped for?

Now an experienced investigative journalist, Marvin Olasky uncovers the true story of his father’s past in his most personal work to date—facing Eli’s pain and his own in order to understand and forgive. He follows Eli from his Orthodox Jewish childhood in Boston to his days as a commuter student at Harvard to his traumatic experiences in Germany following World War II to his embrace of Reconstructionist Judaism, describing the many cuts that led to Eli’s “spiritual and psychological death”—and discovering what he himself owes to his parents.

Endorsements

“A poignant, intimate, and engaging memoir . . . with honest meditations on themes ranging from anti-Semitism to redemption. Beware: this book is addictive.”
—Robert A. Sirico, Founder, Acton Institute

“The work of a brilliant writer and thinker, Marvin consoles those who have had difficult parents and shows through his own experience they do not have to determine the course of the lives of their children.”
—Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist

“A sense of longing and loss pervades Marvin Olasky’s tribute to his father—a reckoning with his Jewish heritage that remains sensitive to time and culture, faith and freedom. A beautiful lament.”
—Trevin Wax, Author, Rethink Your Self

“Anyone who has experienced a difficult parent-child relationship will appreciate the wisdom in this book.”
—Wayne Grudem, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary

4 New Reformed Expository Bible Studies

As tools for biblical transformation, Reformed Expository Bible Studies are designed to help groups and individuals to study the Bible for themselves—understanding it and applying its truths to daily life.


“Having benefitted, along with many others, from the excellent and accessible Reformed Expository Commentary series, I heartily commend this companion initiative.”

—Harry Reeder
Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church


1 Samuel: A King after God’s Own Heart by Jon Nielson and Richard D. Phillips

First Samuel is a riveting read that introduces us to some of the most memorable figures in the Old Testament—some righteous and some desperately corrupt. The greatest of its heroes is David, a mighty man of faith who makes his distinctive contribution in preparing God’s people for the Anointed One, the Messiah who comes to rule and to save.

Ephesians: The Glory of Christ in the Life of the Church by Jon Nielson and Bryan Chapell

In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul celebrates God’s amazing grace that saves individuals, empowers the church, and, through both, transforms the world. Like the early church, we can be amazed by this truth: although the forces around us may be antagonistic to the gospel, the purposes of Christ will fill the world—he is transforming all things for you and through you.

Luke, Volume 1: Knowing for Sure (Chapters 1–10) by Jon Nielson and Philip Graham Ryken

Luke, Volume 2: Knowing for Sure (Chapters 11–24) by Jon Nielson and Philip Graham Ryken

“There are times when our faith falters, when the whole story of salvation suddenly seems quite improbable, if not impossible,” writes Philip Graham Ryken. “We still believe in Jesus, but sometimes it is hard to know for sure.”

Enter Luke’s Gospel, with its explicit and vital purpose of helping readers to be certain of the good news of Jesus’s death and resurrection. 


“I am thankful to see this development in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, allowing these excellent, pastoral commentaries to get an even wider use in the church.”

—Bryan Chapell, Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church


BOOK HIGHLIGHT — Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Christian Belief by John M. Frame

Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Christian Belief by John M. Frame

1,216 pages | P&R Direct Price: $54.99 $41.00 | Audio Book | Mobi: $29.99 | ePub: $29.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER

About

Systematic Theology is the culmination and creative synthesis of John Frame’s writing on, teaching about, and studying of the Word of God. This magisterial opus—at once biblical, clear, cogent, readable, accessible, and practical—summarizes the mature thought of one of the most important and original Reformed theologians of the last hundred years. It will enable you to see clearly how the Bible explains God’s great, sweeping plan for mankind.

Endorsements

“Many times in the past I have grown in my understanding of Scripture and benefited in my practice of ministry as a consequence of John Frame’s written reflections on God’s Word. Now the opportunity to draw upon that thought from a work that expands and systematizes his reflections from a lifetime of study and devotion is a great treasure for the church and a great gift to all in ministry.”—Bryan Chapell

“John Frame’s Systematic Theology is an important landmark in one-volume treatments of the major loci of doctrine. Frame’s signature is readily apparent on every page: commitment to Scripture for everything he writes, accessible philosophical analysis of difficult questions, and, yes, triperspectivalism. This volume ranks as the most recommendable single-volume systematic theology of our time.” —Derek W. H. Thomas

“John Frame the author has in Systematic Theology captured comprehensively and with clarity what many of us have benefited from in the classroom through John Frame the professor and teacher. His biblical precision and personal passion is spread on every page, which you will quickly desire to turn in order to get to the next page as he allows and propels us to see the singular glory of the triune God revealed in his Word as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer.” —Harry L. Reeder

“Hurray for John Frame! At a time when systematics has been shoved into a corner by biblical theology in many seminaries, John has published what I can only hope will be an alternative to that imbalance. Not since A. A. Hodge’s Outlines, Buswell, Reymond, and Grudem has a truly substantive systematic theology appeared. I expect Systematic Theology to become a classic, and I look forward to its publication with the greatest anticipation.” —Jay E. Adams

“Here, at last, is John Frame’s magnum opus—the fruit of fifty years of teaching theology and training ministers of the gospel. Few other contemporary theologians have influenced me as much as Dr. Frame, and I am eager to see this culmination of his theological labors under the lordship of the triune God make its way into the heads, hands, and hearts of Christians around the world.” —Justin Taylor

“Few in our day champion a vision of God as massive, magnificent, and biblical as John Frame’s. For decades, he has given himself to the church, to his students, and to meticulous thinking and the rigorous study of the Bible. He has winsomely, patiently, and persuasively contended for the gospel in the secular philosophical arena, as well as in the thick of the church worship wars and wrestlings with feminism and open theism. He brings together a rare blend of big-picture thinking, levelheaded reflection, biblical fidelity, a love for the gospel and the church, and the ability to write with care and clarity.” —John Piper
