Beginning with Jesus’ birth, Ken Bailey leads you on a kaleidoscopic study of Jesus throughout the four Gospels. Bailey examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord’s Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus’ relationship to women, and especially Jesus’ parables.
Through it all, Bailey employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture to lead you into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural context. With a sure but gentle hand, Bailey lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting.
This entirely new material from the pen of Ken Bailey is a must-have for any student of the New Testament. If you have benefited from Bailey’s work over the years, this book will be a welcome and indispensable addition to your library. If you are unfamiliar with Bailey’s work, this book will introduce you to a very old yet entirely new way of understanding Jesus.

When the gospel of John was written, the world was in turmoil. Jerusalem was collapsing, the empire was eroding, and the church was fighting for its life. The early believers needed a theology to strengthen their souls and steady their nerves–a theology found in this often enigmatic gospel. In our similar times of turbulence, we too need to know that the abundant life under the opened heaven John describes is not just conceivable–it’s a promise.
John E. Johnson is determined to reveal the relevance of John’s gospel to today’s Christian. To do so, he explores various conversations found in its pages and applies them to our modern world. Jesus converses with family, answers the questions of religious leaders, and steps into dialogue with people whose names we never know but whose struggles we can relate to. They aren’t always straightforward chats, Johnson readily admits. Yet that is what makes them so beautifully applicable to the messiness of life.
For readers tired of living confined lives, frustrated by failure, or starving in the midst of plenty, the conversations in John tell them life doesn’t have to stay small. There is a whole new world made possible under God’s open heaven.
“An epic battle between good and evil.”
On Saturn, eons ago, Nephalim were conceived when demons had relations with humans. Years later, when the remains of one of the giants is discovered, an evil scientist used the DNA to create chones, superhuman beings who were unleashed on the battlefield against the Christians turning the war in their favor. Dr. Roger Forrester, the premier medical expert on Saturn, is tasked with stopping them. Would his own spiritual battle with temptation prevent him from succeeding?
“Very compelling story! Not a dull moment.”
In a real, raw, and relevant way, best-selling author, Terry Toler, brings to life the battle that is not against flesh and blood, but is in the heavenlies, manifesting in the lives of the characters with devastating consequences.
“Lots of people can write cliffhangers, but not one after another like Terry Toler.”
“How do you do it? The Eden Stories are fantastical, yet highly believable.”
“What an emotional ending! You socked the breath right out of me.”
Morgan Snyder’s Becoming a King unabashedly speaks directly to men, teaching them the life-changing truth about the power that God intends for them to responsibly step into for his kingdom, while also giving women an honest peek behind the curtain into the lives and hearts of the men they know and love. It is God’s design, desire, and intention to empower humans and entrust them to participate in the ongoing creativity of the universe. Yet a look at our history and the world around us shows that the story of most men is being entrusted with power and having that power bring harm to themselves and those under their care. What’s gone wrong? When can you entrust a man with power? In Becoming a King, Morgan Snyder shares that when we take a deeper pass at the external problems around us, we begin to see the problems within our souls. Yet Morgan suggests there is hope in an ancient path that leads men to become trustworthy kings. Journey with Morgan as he walks alongside men (and the women who love and encourage them) to rediscover this path of inner transformation. Becoming a King is an invitation into a radical reconstruction of much of what we’ve come to believe about God, ourselves, and the meaning of life. It’s an invitation to a rare and remarkable fellowship of like-hearted kings and an honest conversation about what power and responsibility look like for men in our world today. Traveling the path isn’t cheap. It isn’t easy. It isn’t quick. But it is the heroic journey detailed within the pages of Becoming a King that leads to real life; to men becoming as solid and mighty as oak trees, teeming with strength and courage to bring to a hurting world; and to our sons, husbands, brothers, and friends becoming the kind of kings to whom God can entrust his kingdom.
