The new school year is quickly approaching, and here are three highlights from Lexham Press.
Biblical Greek Made Simple
Diligent study of God’s Word involves engaging with it in the language it was written. Learning Greek can be a challenging experience for seminary students, but it is a critical piece of their education. Engaging with the Bible in its original language will lead to deeper understanding and new insights and also provide tools to enter into the conversation surrounding God’s Word.
Biblical Greek Made Simple is a one-semester textbook that teaches the basics of biblical Greek. Designed with the modern student and curriculum in mind, this grammar introduces the essential elements of biblical Greek while also utilizing the tools and features of Logos Bible Software to help retain and enhance knowledge of the language.
Honey from the Rock
In his meditations, Abraham Kuyper reveals a side of himself rarely seen in his well-known theological writings. First published in 1880 and 1883 and never before translated into English, the devotions in Honey from the Rock were written for the nourishment and health of his soul. Rather than the public figure and theologian, we see a man thirsting and hungering for God’s presence.
Modern readers entering this sacred space will be spiritually renewed, restored, and replenished by the light of God’s Word, before returning to their daily callings. James De Jong introduces these powerful devotions from Kuyper.
Nature’s Case for God
Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.
In nine short and lucid chapters that include questions for discussion, Frame shows us what we can learn about God and how we relate to him from the world outside the Bible. If the heavens really do declare the glory of God, as the psalmist claims, it makes a huge difference for how we understand God and how we introduce him to those who don’t yet know Christ.
All three books are available from Lexham Press.
