The letter to the Hebrews provides an amazing combination of warnings and assurances to encourage Christians to persevere in faith, hope, and love. The basis for this is a profound reflection on the person and work of Christ, viewed as the fulfilment of Old Testament Scripture. In this Tyndale commentary, David G. Peterson shows how the author expounds the implications of the gospel with pastoral insight and sensitivity, producing a “word of exhortation” that reaches across the centuries to speak to our lives today.
The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.
In the new New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

“The is the definitive critique of John Piper’s Christian Hedonism and the new theology of Sam Allberry. A direct biblical approach… the best I’ve seen on the subject.” – Dr. ES Williams, Author of The New Calvinists
Is NEW LANGUAGE on issues such as HOMOSEXUALITY a danger to the church today?
Martin Luther once said, “There is great danger in speaking of the things of God in a different manner and in different terms than God Himself employs.”
John Piper and Sam Allberry are two of the most influential figures among evangelicals today. Both men have introduced new language into the church on salvation, sanctification, and the self-image of the Christian.
Serious questions, however, are raised by this trend. Many ask:
Is Piper’s “Christian Hedonism” simply mysticism repackaged?
Are emotions more important than obedience?
Does Allberry’s “same-sex attracted” label normalize homosexuality?
Is there a conspiracy to silence the church?

“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.”-2 Corinthians 12:9
From schlubby sitcom heroes to mommy blogs to online articles, there is a broad cultural perception that men constantly mess up and women must fight an uphill battle to fix them. Men are a burden, constant works-in-progress, pushed toward perfection but always falling short. This book asks a revolutionary question: What if these messed-up men are actually a mighty tool for God?
Tina and Dave Samples remind us that the Bible is filled with a cast of messed-up men—men who struggled and fell, and yet were used by God to accomplish His purposes. In fact, God has consistently chosen imperfect “clay pots” in which to place His light.
David was a poor father. Peter had problems with integrity. Moses had anger issues, Gideon struggled with fear, and Elijah suffered from depression–the list goes on. Messed Up Men of the Bible offers encounters with these ancient men who faced the same emotions and questions that contemporary men face, in order to reveal fresh spiritual insights and hope for modern relationships. Through personal stories, practical advice, and useful exercises, Tina and Dave provide encouragement and hope for women dealing with the messed up men in their own lives.
When it comes to money management, most of us take a hands-off approach because we’re just not confident that we have the know-how needed. But personal finance is actually more personal than it is finance. Tim Maurer has made a career out of distilling complex financial concepts into understandable, doable actions. In this eminently practical book, he shows readers how to
– better understand their values and goals in order to simplify their money decisions
– budget major expenses intelligently
– reduce and eliminate debt
– make vital decisions on home, auto, and life insurance
– establish a world-class investment portfolio
– craft a workable retirement plan
– and more
Readers will be relieved to see that managing their money is actually not as complicated as they thought–and that they can take control of their financial future starting today.
It’s easier than you may think to make intelligent replies to skeptics – with a little training. Answering Skeptics covers all the major objections in chapters that are both compact and compelling, with helpful summaries. If you find yourself reaching out only to lapsed Christians, your horizons are about to broaden. Engage agnostics, atheists, and members of the world religions with confidence.
The lead pastor of Be Hope Church offers a guide for those who are questioning their faith and those who want to rebuild it.
Questioning our long-held beliefs and assumptions can be a good thing. But deconstructing your faith can also lead to dismantling it completely. When one’s childlike faith is not sturdy enough to handle the doubts and struggles of adulthood, it needs rebuilt.
In Reconstructing the Rubble, Kevin Jack walks readers through a spiritually healthy process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Jack helps readers understand what is happening with friends or family members who are suddenly questioning everything. And he offers advice on how to help loved ones rebuild their faith.
