Adam in the New Testament: Mere Teaching Model or First Historical Man?

  • Author: J.P. Versteeg
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Denying the historicity of Adam has become increasingly present within evangelical circles. Was Adam the first historical man? Does the answer really matter? And does it affect any important doctrines in the Bible? Carefully examining key passages of Scripture, Versteeg proves that all human beings descended from Adam, the first man. He argues that if this is not true, the entire history of redemption documented in Scripture unravels and we have no gospel in any meaningful sense.

Johannes Pieter Versteeg (1938-1987) was a talented Dutch theologian at the University of Vrije and a pastor in the Gereformeerde Kerken in Nederland (Abraham Kuyper's denomination) who's radio broadcasts took complex theological concepts and explained them in everyday language.

  • Author: Oswald T. Allis
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 1951
  • Pages: 160

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Oswald T. Allis was professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary for seven years, after teaching for nineteen years in the Department of Semitic Philology at Princeton Theological Seminary. He held academic degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Berlin.

Hero of Heroes: Seeing Christ in the Beatitudes

  • Author: Iain M. Duguid
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 124

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Hero. Someone we admire, someone we want to be like. But does your idea of a hero include someone poor in spirit? Meek? Merciful? In this fresh look at the Beatitudes, Iain M. Duguid shows how Jesus turns our concept of a hero upside down. The Beatitudes hold out to us a higher form of heroism—the character and attitudes found in the Hero of Heroes.

Iain M. Duguid (PhD, University of Cambridge) is professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. He has written numerous works of biblical exposition, including Esther & Ruth in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, Ezekiel in the NIV Application Commentary series, and Numbers in the Preaching the Word series.

Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ from All the Scriptures

  • Author: Dennis E. Johnson
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 512

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Challenging modern preachers to expound the Bible like Peter and Paul, Him We Proclaim makes the hermeneutical and historical case for a return to apostolic preaching—preaching that is Christ-centered, redemptive-historical, missiologically communicated, and grounded in grace. But moving beyond theory, this book provides examples of how this method applies to all Old and New Testament genres—history; law; psalm; prophecy; doctrine and exhortation.

Dennis E. Johnson (ThM, Westminster Theological Seminary; PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) taught New Testament and practical theology at Westminster Seminary California for more than thirty-five years. He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, the author of Him We Proclaim and of commentaries on Acts, Philippians, Hebrews, and Revelation (Triumph of the Lamb), and a contributor to several study Bibles and other books. He and his wife, Jane, live in Dayton, Tennessee. 

Joy Comes in the Morning: Psalms for All Seasons

  • Author: Mark D. Futato
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 112

Life is a journey, full of smooth sailing and rocky roads. The Psalms are there for us as we experience life. They can clarify our thinking or release emotions from the deep well of the soul. Joy Comes in the Morning helps readers understand how to utilize the Psalms throughout life's journey and introduces readers to the concept of genre. Joy Comes in the Morning is a unique combination of head and heart. It introduces readers to the importance of genre as an interpretive tool and demonstrates this for the three major genres in the Psalms. Interwoven with the author's personal testimony, Joy Comes in the Morning also traces the author's journey and shows how no matter life's circumstances, joy comes in the morning.

Mark Futato joined Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando in 1999 and serves as the Robert L. Maclellan Professor of Old Testament. He teaches core classes on Hebrew and Old Testament books.

Prone to Wander: Prayers of Confession and Celebration

  • Author: Wayne Duguid Houk and Barbara R. Duguid
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Confessing our sins might seem like a gloomy business—God already knows about them, so what’s the point of dwelling on failure? But confession is more celebratory than we think. It does not simply remind us of our guilt, but points us to our great Savior, who has atoned for us and lovingly pursues us despite our wandering. These prayers open with a scriptural call of confession, confess specific sins, thank the Father for Jesus’ perfect life and death in our place, ask for the help of the Spirit in pursuing holiness, and close with an assurance of pardon.

Wayne Duguid Houk is the events director and conference planner at the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

Barbara Duguid is a counselor and ministry assistant at Christ Presbyterian Church (ARP) in Grove City, Pennsylvania, where she crafts the weekly liturgy. She is a pastor’s wife and the mother of six children, and she holds an advanced certificate in biblical counseling from the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

Streams of Mercy: Prayers of Confession and Celebration

  • Author: Barbara R. Duguid
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Have you taken time lately to consciously taste of God’s mercy? This can be difficult, because in order to seek God’s mercy we must admit that we need it—and we don’t like to admit that we need anything, much less forgiveness! But exposing the specifics of our struggles with sin regularly points us back to the good news of the gospel and our forgiveness through God’s grace. It leads to celebration!

A helpful addition to the previous collection Prone to Wander, Streams of Mercy provides prayers that confess specific sins in response to scriptural calls to confession and then close with an assurance of our pardon in Christ. Inspired by the Puritan classic The Valley of Vision, these prayers are ideal for use in church services or personal devotions.

Symphonic Theology: The Validity of Multiple Perspectives in Theology

  • Author: Vern S. Poythress
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 128

The truth of God is rich and multifaceted. Though a coherent body of revelation, the Bible comes to us through a variety of inspired authors, metaphors, and themes, highlighting the many facets of God’s truth. Likewise, our theological formulations capture manifold emphases—distinct “perspectives” on the whole—which collectively enable us to gain a fuller understanding of the truth. Poythress explains, “We use what we have gained from one perspective to reinforce, correct, or improve what we understood through another. I call this procedure ‘symphonic theology’ because it is analogous to a blending of various musical instruments to express the variation of a symphonic theme.”

Vern S. Poythress (MLitt, University of Cambridge; PhD, Harvard University; DTh, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa) is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He is also the author of Understanding Dispensationalists; Science and Hermeneutics; Implications of Scientific Method for Biblical Interpretation; Symphonic Theology; The Validity of Multiple Perspectives in Theology; and The Shadow of Christ in the Law of Moses.

The Heart of Prayer: What Jesus Teaches Us

  • Author: Jerram Barrs
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

If we are honest with ourselves, we will acknowledge that we pray very little. When we do pray, we are often focused on our own performance or on making a “good impression” on God or those around us. As a result, we lose the joy, delight, and childlike dependence of heartfelt prayer. But despite our weakness in prayer, Jesus’ teaching and example provide support rather than condemnation. This uplifting book highlights this encouragement and calls believers to turn their eyes away from their own performance and follow Jesus as they pursue the heart of prayer.

Jerram Barrs is professor of Christianity and Contemporary Culture and Resident Scholar of the Francis Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary.

The Imitation of Christ in the Gospel of Luke

  • Author: C.D. Agan III
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 264

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Christians instinctively desire to be like Jesus. Yet evangelical and Reformed thinkers have done little to wed this desire to sound theology and responsible biblical interpretation. With careful attention to Luke’s gospel, this book demonstrates that we can—and must—follow Christ’s example precisely because we embrace him as Savior.

C. D. “Jimmy” Agan III (MDiv, Covenant Theological Seminary; PhD, University of Aberdeen) is Senior Pastor of Intown Community Church in Atlanta. Previously he was Associate Professor of New Testament and Director of the Homiletics Program at Covenant Theological Seminary.

The Sermon on the Mount: The Character of a Disciple

  • Author: Daniel M. Doriani
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

“Among Jesus’ teachings, the Sermon on the Mount is perhaps the most beloved, the best known, the least understood, and the hardest to obey,” says Daniel Doriani. His skillful exposition and gripping application of the sermon will help readers realize in thought and in life the character of true disciples.

Daniel M. Doriani is vice president of strategic academic projects and professor of theology at Covenant Theological Seminary. Previously he was senior pastor of Central Presbyterian Church in Clayton, Missouri.
