Individual Titles

Basics for Believers: An Exposition of Philippians

  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 128

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

Basics for Believers is for Christians taking the first steps of faith as well as experienced saints reexamining spiritual foundations. Both will gain exceptional instruction and encouragement from this fresh look at the fundamental disciplines of the Christian life.

To ensure persistent progress in your journey of faith, Carson urges believers to:

  • Put the gospel first in your relationships, prayer life, career goals, and personal choices
  • Take the right perspective on the cross and let it shape your outlook on suffering, witnessing, and persevering for the faith
  • Emulate Christian leaders who model compassion, faithfulness, confidence in Christ, and heavenly mindedness.
  • Resolve never to give up the Christian walk but instead to pursue the same seven virtues Paul enjoins upon the Philippians.

This summons to “get back to the basics” lays a solid foundation for withstanding storms that beat upon the house of faith today.

Exegetical Fallacies

  • Edition: Second
  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 160

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

Serious exegesis of the Scriptures is one of the most worthwhile practices any Christian can undertake. But it is not without its dangers. In Exegetical Fallacies, Carson helps readers discern improper interpretation techniques, and explains sound grammatical, lexical, cultural, theological, and historical Bible study practices. With its accessible style and plain language, Exegetical Fallacies will be an edifying contribution to any Bible study.

This book . . . is a must for teachers, pastors, and serious Bible students.

Thomas Schreiner, professor of New Testament interpretation, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The reader who does not confuse the Bible’s inerrancy with his own interpretations will receive valuable guidance from the book. Carson has furnished a pithy and practical manual of many of those mistake to which all of us who deal with the text in earnest fall prey.

Robert Yarbrough, chair of the New Testament department and associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

…well written, easy to read, and thought-provoking. It is highly recommended to all who truly desire to handle accurately the world of truth (2 Tim. 2:15)

—Jeff Guimont, Grace Theological Journal

Written by an evangelical for evangelicals, this practical treatise is worthy of wider circulation among preachers of others persuasions.

—Casimir Bernas, Religious Studies Review

Showing the Spirit: A Theological Exposition of 1 Corinthians 12–14

  • Publication Date: 1996
  • Pages: 230

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Showing the Spirit, Carson speaks to one of evangelism’s most troublesome issues: spiritual gifts. The book expounds the crucial passage, 1 Corinthians 12–14. Partisans on both sides of charismatic issues are challenged by the unbiased consideration of nuances in the Greek text found in 1 Corinthians.

Carson interacts with some other Christian doctrines, as well as with findings of linguists, social anthropologists, and historians. The concluding chapter integrates material from other portions of Scripture—especially the Book of Acts—so that the author’s conclusions reflect all of the biblical evidence. “We must even-handedly attempt to weigh all the relevant evidence,” Carson writes, “even while we insist that the authority of Scripture must prevail.”

An excellent book which could do much to bring together charismatics and noncharismatics in a common understanding and experience of the Spirit.

I. Howard Marshall, honorary research professor of New Testament, University of Aberdeen

A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers

  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 232

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

God doesn’t demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules. God only wants his people to know him more intimately. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. A Call to Spiritual Reformation investigates the Epistles to see what lessons Paul taught in his “school of prayer.” Christians today can still achieve the confidence Paul enjoyed by following his life-shaping principles and searching for a deeper devotional experience.

[This book] provides a . . . pointed argument that the greatest need for churches today is not education, evangelism, or programs, but a deeper knowledge of God. It contributes to filling that need by assisting those who read it to a fuller life of prayer.

Review and Expositor

The reader is guided, gently yet persuasively, towards a reformation in personal dealings with God. This excellent and timely book can be heartily commended.
