Earlier this year, I spent some time studying the Pastoral Epistles. As a young pastor, I treasure the practical and pastoral insights that come from 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus. But digging deep into these letters will unearth a number of thorny issues: Why is authorship disputed? What did Paul mean when he said […]

Andreas Köstenberger’s and Terry Wilder’s Entrusted with the Gospel: Paul’s Theology in the Pastoral Epistles is a valuable resource for anyone teaching, preaching, or writing on the Pastoral Epistles.  In particular, it is helpful for those entrusted with the role of shepherding the flock of God.  The authors have collected a leading group of evangelical […]

Mark F. Rooker suggests that the Ten Commandments constitute the fundamental framework upon which all the biblical commandments are based. After quickly surveying introductory issues, Rooker turns to a sequential analysis of each commandment. Pastors, teachers and studious-but-busy Christians will appreciate this volume.

In my opinion, the best part of David Allen’s book is his treatment on the writing style similarities between Hebrews, Luke, and Acts.

“If you are involved at all in missions, discipleship, youth ministry, college ministry – you would be wise to pick up this book. This will help strengthen your argument for short term missions.” Kim Davidson Read the entire review here…

This book is the best concise introduction to the Reformation for students and laypeople who are new to the issues. Reeves portrays the spirit of the Reformation with grittiness, verve, and humour. The spirit of the Reformation lives on in this text, but it is only an appetiser. Further reading is suggested at the end of […]

The book is not only user-friendly; it represents careful and up-to-date scholarship. For instance, they helpfully survey and evaluate the quests of the historical Jesus (including the third quest), the recent spate of alternate Gospels (mainly gnostic) that are proposed today, and the New Perspective on Paul. These discussions will surely prove to be useful […]
