Ben Witherington III, a well-known New Testament scholar, exegete, and commentator brings new insight to several oft-debated areas of Christian doctrine and methods of interpretation with the Ben Witherington III Collection (5 vols.). In this collection, Witherington opens the Scriptures and addresses the following subjects:
- The Bible: the formation of its canon, history of its translations, hermeneutical principles, and more
- Communion: its background, significance, and complexities
- Protestant Reformers: whether Luther, Calvin, or Wesley’s ideas on various topics— sin, sovereignty, grace, and more—have firm biblical foundations
- Baptism: its implications and the debate over believer’s and infant baptism
- Rhetorical Criticism: the use of rhetoric in the composition of the New Testament
The Ben Witherington III Collection (5 vols.) carefully assesses these topics with a firm biblical basis and provides readers with a deeper understanding of the foundations—as well as the contemporary implications they bring. Perfect for scholars, students, pastors, and laypersons alike, the Logos edition of these theological works is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture passages are linked directly to your English translations and to the original Greek text, and important theological concepts are linked to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of resources in your digital library.
