Ancient Christian Devotional: A Year of Weekly Readings: Lectionary Cycle A

To search the sacred Scripture is very good and most profitable for the soul. For, ‘like a tree which is planted near the running waters,’ so does the soul watered by sacred Scripture also grow hearty and bear fruit in due season,” writes John of Damascus in Orthodox Faith (4.17). By helping us to read holy writings with ancient eyes, the church fathers help us drink deeply from the only water that can give us true life. This guide to prayer and reflection combines excerpts from the writings o...

Crazy Busy


"I’m too busy."
We’ve all heard it, we’ve all said it. Sometimes being busy seems like the theme of our lives. Yet this frenetic pace poses a serious threat to our physical, social, and even spiritual well-being. In this mercifully short book about a really big problem, best-selling author Kevin DeYoung rejects the “busyness as usual” mindset, arguing that a life of constant chaos is far from what God intends. DeYoung helps us figure out a better way forward as he strikes a mature and well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing everything.

Preaching and Teaching the Last Things: Old Testament Eschatology for the Life of the Church

by

Baker Academic 2011

Distinguished Old Testament scholar Walter Kaiser believes that the Old Testament is sorely neglected today in teaching and preaching—and that it is even more neglected when it comes to setting forth the hope that Christians have for the future. Firmly believing that the Old Testament offers important insights into biblical eschatology and the Christian life, he provides guidance for preachers, teachers, and Bible students on expositing 15 key Old Testament eschatological passages.

  • ISBN-13: 978-0802830555

Overview

Writing a commentary on Galatians is a daunting task. Despite its relative brevity, this Pauline letter raises a number of foundational theological issues, and it has played a vital role in shaping Christian thought and practice over the centuries.
In this replacement of Ronald Y. K. Fung’s 1988 New International Commentary volume, David deSilva ably rises to the challenge, providing a coherent account of Galatians as a piece of strategically crafted communication that addresses both the immediate pastoral challenges facing Paul’s converts in Galatia and the underlying questions that gave rise to them.
Paying careful attention to the history, philology, and theology of the letter, and interacting with a wealth of secondary literature on both Galatians and the rest of the Pauline corpus, deSilva’s exegetically sound commentary will serve as an essential resource for pastors and theological students.
In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by a world-class set of research and study tools. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Serving God in a Migrant Crisis: Ministry to People on the Move

Millions are on the move, driven by war, drought, terrorism, poverty, failed states, environmental catastrophes, disease, revolutions, and the desire for a better life. Christians have a unique perspective on the migrant crisis: after all, Jesus was a refugee. So were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses.
Today, some turn their backs on refugees. In Serving God in a Migrant Crisis, Patrick Johnstone and Dean Merrill help us understand what's causing today's refugee crisis, explore Christian theology and tradition on migration, and show us how Christian workers around the globe are opening their hearts to embrace these modern outcasts.
"The world has literally come to our doorstep," they write. "Will we open the door?"

Description

The New Interpreter’s Bible One-Volume Commentary brings the best of biblical scholarship to the service of the church. This volume features new articles on all the books of the Bible, including the Apocrypha, as well as general articles on the history, interpretation, and use of the Bible. The authors are a diverse group of the top biblical scholars in the world, and they provide thoughtful, challenging, and enlightening commentary on the eternal truths of Scripture.
The New Interpreter’s Bible One-Volume Commentary is designed for pastors, students, Bible teachers, and laypeople—anyone who wants a portable, accessible, and trustworthy resource for deeper Scripture study.

My 5 cents:
  • brief (as one vol, but not so brief, it's over 1000 pages) but written by many good scholars 
  • this series is not so familiar to some HK seminarians but not a bad one indeed: it covers apocrypha and has many general articles appended

Dangerous Calling: Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry
After traveling the globe and speaking to thousands of churches worldwide, Paul David Tripp has discovered a serious problem within pastoral culture.
He is not only concerned about the spiritual life of the pastor, but also with the very community of people that trains him, calls him, relates to him, and restores him if necessary.
Dangerous Calling reveals the truth that the culture surrounding our pastors is spiritually unhealthy—an environment that actively undermines the wellbeing and efficacy of our church leaders and thus the entire church body.
Here is a book that both diagnoses and offers cures for issues that impact every member and church leader, and gives solid strategies for fighting the all-important war that rages in our churches today.

In Not Yet Married, Marshall Segal calls Christians to live, and date, for more than just marriage.
If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of perfection, but a mutually flawed pursuit of him. He will write a love story for you different than the one you would have written for yourself — because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. Trust him, and he will help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
