Author(s): Bart D. Ehrman & Craig A. Evans
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Price: $2.99       Buy Now!

This book features a learned and fascinating debate between two great Bible scholars about the New Testament as a reliable source on the historical Jesus. Bart Ehrman, an agnostic New Testament scholar, debates Craig Evans, an evangelical New Testament scholar, about the historical Jesus and what constitutes “history.” Their interaction includes such compelling questions as: What are sound methods of historical investigation? What are reliable criteria for determining the authenticity of an ancient text? What roles do reason and inference play? And, of course, interpretation? Readers of this debate—regardless of their interpretive inclinations and biases—are sure to find some confirmation of their existing beliefs, but they will surely also find an honest and well-informed challenge to the way they think about the historical Jesus.

The result? A more open, better informed, and questioning mind, which is better prepared for discovering both truth and contrivance. The debate between Ehrman and Evans along with Stewart’s introductory framework make this book an excellent primer to the study of the historical Jesus, and readers will come away with a deeper appreciation for the ongoing quest for the historical Jesus.

Again and again, Alister McGrath elegantly performs that central task of any teacher: to enable his students and readers, starting from the familiar ground of what they already know, to go on to explore new territory and begin to see an expanded horizon. Church Times

Popular author Alister E. McGrath explores the great theme of Christian hope and the way in which it transforms and sustains the Christian life in this fifth and final volume in the Heart of Christian Faith series. McGrath reflects on how the creeds give us a framework for Christian living, as well as for Christian belief. Full of stories and helpful illustrations, this book provides spiritual consideration of the difference that our belief in God makes to the way in which we think about ourselves and the world.

The Witness of Preaching, Third Edition
Author(s):
Thomas G. Long (Professor, Emory University)
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Price: $1.99       Buy Now!

This is a newly revised edition of one of the standard introductory preaching textbooks on the market today. Beginning with a solid theological basis, veteran preacher and best-selling author Thomas G. Long offers a practical, step-by-step guide to writing a sermon. Long centers his approach around the biblical concept of witness. To be a preacher, Long posits, is to be a witness to God’s work in the world—one who sees before speaking, one whose task is to “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what is seen.”

This updated edition freshens up language and anecdotes, contains an extensive new analysis of the use of multimedia and its impact on preaching, and adds a completely new chapter on plagiarism in preaching. Included for the first time are four complete sermons, with Long’s commentary and analysis. The sermons were written and originally preached by Barbara Brown Taylor, Cleophus J. LaRue. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli, and Edmund Steimle. With this third edition, The Witness of Preaching reaffirms itself as the essential resource for seminary students as well as new and experienced preachers.


Preaching and the Literary Forms of the Bible
Author(s):
Thomas G. Long (Professor, Emory University)
Publisher: Fortress Press
Price: $4.99       Buy Now!

Long argues that the literary form and dynamics of biblical texts can and should make a difference in the kinds of sermons created from those texts, not only because of what the texts say but because of how they say it. He presents a methodology for taking the literary characteristics of biblical texts into account in the text-to-sermon process and then applies that methodology in separate chapters on preaching on psalms, proverbs, narratives, parables, and epistles.
