Christians share a commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture, but have we slipped on our commitment and understanding of sufficiency? We believe the Bible is true, but do we believe it is enough for every matter of faith and practice? Rob Rienow allows us to reexamine this vital doctrine and understand the foundation it sets for all future ministry. This book asks the reader to go beyond the knowledge of the authority of God's Word and let it shape and determine how ministry is carried out in the life of the church. Rienow gives a concise explanation of the sufficiency of Scripture. He also goes beyond that foundation to examine how it impacts all of ministry. Discover not only what God is calling you to do, but how He wants you to do it.

Why Biblical Counseling? Because God's Word is fully sufficient for the counseling task and is superior to any secular method of care the world can provide. In his new book, Dr. Ab Abercrombie draws a clear contrast between the temporal provision of humanism and the transformational authority of the Bible. The reader is trained and encouraged to think and respond biblically in all matters of biblical care and discipleship, for the restoration of the fallen believer (Gal 6:1-2) and the evangelism of those yet to encounter Christ (Matt 28:19-20). The text serves as an invaluable resource, suitable for pastors, ministry students, and lay leaders within the Church.

The Nicene Creed is the most universally accepted statement of Christian faith by Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox believers alike. In this volume, top scholars examine the Nicene Creed's connection with the evangelical tradition, helping readers see evangelicalism as a renewal movement within the one holy catholic and apostolic church. Particular focus is given to the Creed's practical outworking in the life of the church--its theology, spirituality, worship, and mission. Topics include pastoral work, biblical exegesis, the emerging phenomena, and Christian orthodoxy's revival in the Global South. The book helps readers present the traditional Christian faith to twenty-first-century people. Contributors include Thomas C. Oden, Gerald Bray, Carl E. Braaten, Curtis W. Freeman, Elizabeth Newman, and Ralph C. Wood, among others.

Evangelical Christians vigorously defend the Bible as the inspired Word of God, yet we limit that term just to the autographs - those original writings of the Scriptures that no longer exist. What does this say for the reliability of your Bible? Can you honestly and truthfully claim that your Bible translation is the inspired Word of God? Ed Goodrick believes that we need to adjust our thinking about inspiration: a change that argues that the Bible that you actually hold in your hand is also rightly described as the inspired Word of God. His enlightening discussion of the nature of God's revelation, the accurate copying of these original writings, the careful comparison of the manuscripts (textual criticism), and their translation into contemporary languages will give you a renewed confidence in the trustworthiness of your Bible. Goodrick also explores the issues that surround interpreting the Bible, for if it is misused by present-day readers, it does little good practically to assert its divine origin. Ray Lubeck has sought to bring this very important work back into print for a new generation of believers who now need, more than ever in this increasingly postmodern culture, to learn that the Bible is worthy of your trust, commitment, study, and confidence. Though Goodrick's arguments are timeless, his wording and sources have now been completely updated, giving the second edition of Is My Bible the Inspired Word of God? an easy-to-read style for today.

Evangelicalism is in trouble. Surveying the modern evangelical landscape, professor Michael Svigel asks, “Why does evangelicalism appear to be spinning out of control, losing appeal to younger generations, dwindling in numbers, or selling out to pop culture to muster a crowd?” He seeks to answer this question by looking to the past—to a Retro Christianity. Calling for a return to evangelicalism’s historical and theological roots, Svigel begins by addressing some of present-day evangelicalism’s problems and explores what can be done to help churches regain a healthy perspective on doctrine. He then gives practical examples of what establishing a biblical, historical, and theologically sound foundation will mean for Christians as they think through aspects of church life and worship. As the numbers of those confused or disenchanted with evangelicalism continue to grow, Svigel’s book meets a timely need and will benefit many readers with his balanced argument for preserving the evangelical faith.

Tasty Jesus deals with key cultural, philosophical, and theological representations of Christ that find expression in the North American church. Each of these respective cameos of Christ has colored the Christological understanding of many believers in the local assembly. We live in a society deeply embedded in a mindless individualism that is more concerned with a malleable Christ that suits their present taste than the Jesus of both the Bible and historic Christian orthodoxy. This book is at once a critique, a call, and a consideration. It is a critique of particular visions of Jesus that are embraced by specific subcultures, philosophical camps, and theological perspectives. It is a call to the local church, both its attendees and leadership, intended to awaken them to the problems with these various portraits in hope of stirring them to respond appropriately. It is a consideration of the primary ideological counterpoints to each view of Jesus, and a postulation of the best manner in which to equip believers in the local assembly to respond to each distortion of Jesus and live under the lordship of the real Christ. It is time to get Jesus out from under the tyranny of our personal tastes!

"The essays in this volume together commend the usefulness of traditional Christian language and doctrine for articulating the gospel today. Taking as their point of departure the Baltimore Declaration, a manifesto made by a group of Episcopal priests in 1991; the "post-liberal" theologians contributing to Reclaiming Faith explore such issues as the exclusivity of salvation in Christ, the proper limit to doctrinal reformulation, the authoritative forms of biblical language, and the nature of the church community as a confessing body of Christians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
