1. Sons in the Son: The Riches and Reach of Adoption in Christ by David B. Garner
400 pages | List Price: $24.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($9.99) | iTunes/ePub ($9.99)
What does being adopted in God’s Son really mean for Paul’s conception of redemptive grace? Sons in the Son examines the function of this permeating familial concept in terms of Pauline thought: Christology, eschatology, union with Christ, and adoption’s relationship to other benefits for believers. Drawing from a biblico-theological investigation of the adoption texts, Garner explores how adoption frames Pauline soteriology and defines the central familial context of redemption.
“I’m convinced that Garner’s book will be considered a theological classic of the Christian faith. . . . To say I absolutely loved it would be an understatement.”
—Dan Cruver, President, Together for Adoption
“Reading Sons in the Son is like putting on a new set of glasses that enable the reader to see the glistening beauty of God’s grace of adoption throughout the entirety of his salvation plan.”
—Nancy Guthrie, Author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series
2. From Inscrutability to Concursus: Benjamin B. Warfield’s Theological Construction of Revelation’s Mode from 1880 to 1915 by Jeffrey A. Stivason
264 pages | List Price: $39.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($24.99) | iTunes/ePub ($24.99) | Reformed Academic Dissertations series
Benjamin B. Warfield, one of the Reformed world’s most celebrated theologians, was a theological diagnostician who demonstrated a remarkable ability to grasp the origin and direction of theological trends. The challenge in Warfield’s day was to explain how God communicated. Pursuing the answer to that question led him on the theological journey that is chronicled in this book. Our day is like Warfield’s: the need of the hour is not to explain revelation’s source but God’s mode of communicating, if we are to maintain that Scripture is indeed God’s Word.
“Stivason’s analysis is an important contribution to our understanding not just of Warfield’s mature doctrine of Scripture, but also of the central role that the doctrine of concursus played in his thought as a whole. Enthusiastically recommended.”
—Paul Kjoss Helseth, Professor of Christian Thought, University of Northwestern, St. Paul
“A top-notch exposition of a top-tier theologian.”
—Lane G. Tipton, Charles Krahe Chair of Systematic Theology, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

4. How to Understand and Apply the New Testament: Twelve Steps from Exegesis to Theology by Andrew David Naselli
5. The Essential Trinity: New Testament Foundations and Practical Relevance edited by Carl R. Trueman & Brandon D. Crowe
320 pages | List Price: $19.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($9.99) | iTunes/ePub ($9.99)
The doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to Christian theology. A careful study of the whole counsel of God, rather than a selective reading of biblical texts, brings needed clarity. In a work geared especially toward leaders in the church, scholars of the Trinity give Old Testament background, provide trinitarian readings of the entire New Testament corpus, and explore the practical relevance of the doctrine to prayer, worship, and other aspects of Christian life and ministry.
“Today there are many books on the market dealing with the doctrine of the Trinity. This is my favorite. It is a clear presentation, discussion, and application of the historic doctrine by people who believe it and have studied it deeply. The essays have kept close to their source, the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. . . . I do not agree with every detail of every essay; they do enter into some controversial areas. But the reader will learn even from that controversy to engage the Scriptures with more thought and devotion.”
—John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
“What a pleasure to commend this book—an exegetical treasure, unpacking the doctrine of the Trinity on the Bible’s own terms; a refreshing presentation of the doctrine’s vital importance for the Christian and the church; and a rich resource for the preacher.”
—Fred G. Zaspel, Executive Editor, Books at a Glance; Associate Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Pastor, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, Pennsylvania
6. Introduction to Hebrew: A Guide for Learning and Using Biblical Hebrew by William Fullilove
448 Pages | Trim: 8 1/2 x 11 | List Price: $39.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Click here to watch online courses for all 28 chapters
If you’re learning Hebrew, why not enjoy it?
Sadly, most students of biblical Hebrew quit their studies at the most crucial moment—the transition from language basics to biblical exegesis. But you can flourish early on and progress further if you learn from the outset to read andexplain biblical texts effectively.
In this comprehensive introductory textbook, Professor William Fullilove covers the basics of biblical Hebrew morphology and syntax while developing skills in the beginner that are typically reserved for more advanced students. Hebrew study becomes rapidly rewarding as you start to
- appreciate nuances of God’s Word that you would not be able to see in translation;
- understand how to appropriately use the best tools and secondary resources to aid in exegesis; and
- learn how to use your Hebrew knowledge to enrich your own understanding, research, and teaching.
Your studies are valuable. Stay engaged as you learn how to handle God’s Word with depth, confidence, and robust exegesis.
“This is the best teaching grammar of biblical Hebrew available today. It has no rival. . . . What sets this grammar apart is its exegetical focus, showing at every turn the relevance of the language for biblical interpretation. This is the ideal textbook for students in colleges and seminaries who are preparing for Christian ministry.”
—Scott C. Jones, Professor of Biblical Studies, Covenant College
“Here’s the book I wish I had been given, and from which I wish I had been instructed, when I was a student of Hebrew.”
—Timothy Keller, Founding Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church
7. Anger and Stress Management God’s Way by Wayne A. Mack
144 pages | List Price: $14.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($8.99) | ePub ($8.99)
Anger and stress affect each of us every day—even if we aren’t feeling them ourselves, we come into contact with people who are. But their commonplace nature shouldn’t cause us to shrug them away. Anger and stress are both destroyers, and they must be controlled before they bring devastating harm.
Mack exhorts us: “You don’t have to be overcome and destroyed by ungodly anger or stress. By God’s grace, you can be an overcomer.”
Of all the resources available to us, the Bible contains the most trustworthy and helpful guidance on how to handle ungodly anger and stress. Internationally respected and experienced biblical counselor Wayne Mack shows how to turn to God’s Word to find help, explaining principles that can be adopted for lasting positive change.
Includes study questions and evaluation materials.
“A compelling read and so very biblically practical. This book gives so much hope for true, God-honoring change.”
—Martha Peace, Author, The Excellent Wife
“For those who struggle with anger and those who labor to help, this volume is a must-read. Every biblical counselor should own a copy and have it at the ready.”
—Daniel Kirk, Director of Calvary Bible Counseling Ministries
8. The Christ of Wisdom: A Redemptive-Historical Exploration of the Wisdom Books of the Old Testament by O. Palmer Robertson
432 pages | List Price: $19.99 | Sample Chapter | Kindle ($9.99) | iTunes/ePub ($9.99)
How do we walk in the way of wisdom? How should we respond to suffering? How can we cope with life’s frustrations and sorrows? How ought we to weep? How ought we to love?
The answers can be found in the great “how-to” books of Scripture—the Old Testament’s wisdom literature—but unfortunately, these books are frequently overlooked in biblical theology, despite their immense significance for God’s people. O. Palmer Robertson introduces the concept of biblical wisdom before providing a redemptive-historical analysis of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Lamentations. These neglected books offer the contemporary reader inspired insight (and a solid dose of godly realism) into every major realm of human existence: from love and intimacy to grief and calamity.
“Robertson’s book is the best I know of on this subject. It focuses on what the Bible itself says about wisdom, particularly in the wisdom literature. I have learned much from it, and I hope that many others will as well.”
—John M. Frame, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
“A major contribution to Christian understanding of wisdom in the Old Testament. As always, Palmer Robertson’s work is firmly rooted in the full authority of Scripture and in the supremacy of Christ over all creation. . . . He not only addresses academic issues, but also provides enormously helpful insights into the practical application of biblical wisdom to modern life.”
—Richard L. Pratt Jr., President, Third Millennium Ministries

9. Divided We Fall: Overcoming a History of Christian Disunity by Luder G. Whitlock Jr.
248 pages | List Price: $14.99 | Sample Chapter | Kindle ($9.99) | iTunes/ePub ($9.99)
Throughout the centuries, Christians have longed to be united with one another—supporting each other and working in harmony. But our reality is very different, and we need only to read the New Testament to realize that disunity has been with us from the start.
What can we do to foster unity and deeper community in a world where so many relationships are fractured and fractious? Luder Whitlock Jr. explores God’s desire for unity in the church, overviews the history of global Christianity with an eye on its schisms and agreements, and points us toward the necessity of God-honoring fellowship, laying out steps we can take to increase trust and develop understanding, especially within the church.
As governments grow increasingly unsupportive of Christianity, it is even more important for us to listen to each other and work together for the common good—despite our many differences.
“Luder Whitlock’s book is something of a cri de coeur for greater unity in the church. At a time when Christian leaders are almost obsessed about the culture, this book rightly argues that we will shape the broader society only to the degree that we make the Christian church what it should be. And in our present moment, the unity of the church is both a witness to the world and a necessity for its strength and vitality. Luder’s appeal comes from long experience and membership in several denominations. He marshals evidence for his contentions from the Bible, theology, history, and organizational literature. Not everyone will agree with every proposal or every argument, but overall the book makes a compelling case.”
—Timothy Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
“Whitlock is a trusted voice for Christians because he evidences deep wisdom, compassion, and maturity, as well as intellect and skill. This book calls the church to gospel unity in ways that will provoke you to think, ponder, and pray.”
—Russell Moore, President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

10. The Triune God of Unity in Diversity: An Analysis of Perspectivalism, the Trinitarian Theological Method of John Frame and Vern Poythress by Timothy E. Miller
384 pages | List Price: $49.99 | Sample Chapter | Kindle ($29.99) | iTunes/ePub ($29.99) | Reformed Academic Dissertations series
Timothy Miller defends and further develops the foundationally Trinitarian, multiperspectival theological method of John Frame and Vern Poythress, an eminently useful, historically Reformed tool for understanding all created reality.
“This is a highly stimulating work that makes a very helpful and useful contribution in its argument for utilizing the Trinitarian processions in a Frame/Poythress perspectival account of knowledge and apologetics. In terms of originality, I think the meat of the work lies there, and good meat it is too.”
—Mike Ovey, Principal, Oak Hill College, London, England
“Triperspectivalism is a theological method based on the Bible’s teaching about the one God in three persons. Tim Miller’s book presents an accurate formulation of this method and explores in depth the origin of the method in the doctrine of the Trinity. I recommend the book highly to those who aspire to be serious students of theological method and of the Trinity itself.”
—John Frame, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

11. Johanna and Henriette Kuyper: Daring to Change Their World by Abigail van der Velde
264 pages | List Price: $12.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($6.99) | iTunes/ePub ($6.99) | Chosen Daughters series
As the 1800s draw to a close and a new century begins, forces for change are already at work in the Netherlands’ entrenched society when custom is further challenged by two bold women, Johanna Kuyper and her daughter Henriette.
Johanna is a traditional wife eager to both support and challenge her strong-willed husband, Abraham Kuyper, a dominant leader in church, education, and politics. She serves her family and community through celebrations and sorrows, social upheaval and political conflicts.
The more progressive Henriette Kuyper is an international traveler, champion of women’s suffrage, and wartime correspondent—among much else!
Risking reproach and defying custom, both will find very different ways to change their world for good and for God’s sake.
“The Byrd women found that one of the biggest impacts of Abigail van der Velde’s biographical novel is the way it makes us consider how we glorify and honor the Lord by living faithfully according to the unique personalities and gifts he has so graciously designed each of us to use in order to contribute to his service. In that way, we sharpen one another and display a fuller picture of Christ.”
—Aimee Byrd, author of Housewife Theologian, and her daughters Solanna and Zaidee
“There were moments when I had the impression that I was reading a story of my parents’ family—how I was raised. I enjoyed reading this very much.”
—Hein Schaaij, great-nephew of Johanna Kuyper

12. Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage: Critical Questions and Answers by Jim Newheiser
336 pages | List Price: $16.99 | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle ($9.99) | iTunes/ePub ($9.99)
What constitutes a valid marriage? How should you go about finding a spouse? Is there a purpose to engagement? Why, and under what circumstances, does God permit divorce? Is abuse a ground for divorce? When is remarriage advisable?
When it comes to counseling related to marriage, remarriage, and divorce, the questions and issues can be especially complex. But we can turn confidently to the Word of God for answers, knowing that it will speak to every situation with profound wisdom. Drawing on decades of marriage counseling experience, Newheiser explores questions relating to marriage—unpacking the answers given in God’s Word. This useful reference work for pastors or counselors can also be read straight through for a scriptural overview of the topic or assigned in small sections to counselees.
