Christians in the twenty-first century, as never before, must know what they believe and why they believe. They must be able to define and defend the faith. The Apologetics Study Bible will help equip a new generation of believers to do that with competency and conviction.

—Daniel L. Akin, president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

When we share our faith with others, we often run into Bible passages that raise difficult questions. The Apologetics Study Bible deals with such problems…[and] also provides discussions of more general questions like the existence of God and the problem of evil…The Apologetics Study Bible is a useful tool for Christian witness.

—John Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed

So many people today are asking fundamental questions about Christianity that it is important to have good apologetics tools to be able to recommend to them. I highly recommend a study Bible like this one that addresses such concerns.

—Stanley E. Porter, President and Dean, Professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College

If you think history is boring, take about three minutes and scan through 131 Christians Everyone Should Know. Zero in on an article, and you may find you can’t read just one!

These sketches have been put together by the editors of Christian History magazine, who have an impressive track record for making history come alive every month for their readers.

Note the diversity in this volume: Menno Simons, a pacifist, and the Roman emperor Constantine, a general. Leaders of the Reformation—Luther, Calvin, Zwingli—and the Counter-Reformation—Ignatius Loyola and Teresa of Avila. Men and women. Teenagers such as Joan of Arc, and aged saints like Polycarp.

History isn’t just dates, statistics, and grand social movements. It’s people—people from many callings:

  • Theologians—Athanasius and Jonathan Edwards
  • Evangelists and Apologists—Justyn Martyr and Billy Graham
  • Pastors and Preachers—John Chrysostom and Richard Baxter
  • Musicians—Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederic Handel
  • Artists and Writers—Rembrandt and C. S. Lewis
  • Poets—Dante and Fanny Crosby
  • Denominational Founders—Richard Allen and Aimee Semple McPherson
  • Movers and Shakers—Dominic and John Wycliffe
  • Missionaries—Patrick and David Livingstone
  • Inner Travelers—Brother Lawrence and Oswald Chambers
  • Activists—Sojourner Truth and Lord Shaftesbury
  • Rulers—Charlemagne and Henry VII
  • Scholars and Scientists—Eusebius of Caesarea and Nicolas Copernicus
  • Martyrs—Perpetua and Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Each personality sketch includes a timeline that gives the historical context in which that person lived. The book also contains a topical index that will help you find illustrations for teaching and preaching.

Some time spent with 131 Christians Everyone Should Know will forever enlarge your view of “the church as we see her spread through all time and space and rooted in eternity, terrible as an army with banners” (C. S. Lewis)—a spectacle that will inspire you to deeper thought and greater faithfulness.

Harmony of the Gospels

  • Authors: Steven L. Cox and Kendell H. Easley
  • Publisher: B&H
  • Publication Date: 1999, 2007
  • Pages: 372

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

Gospel harmonies were inevitable. One of the first impulses of someone studying a teaching or an event in Jesus’ life is to seek as many perspectives on that event as possible. Around A.D. 160 Tatian compiled a single narrative of the four Gospels, reducing the number of verses from 3,780 (four separate Gospels) to 2,769 verses without excluding any event or teaching from the life of Jesus.

This Harmony of the Gospels builds on a tradition of harmonization begun in the nineteenth century by John A. Broadus and continued by his protégé, A. T. Robertson.

The Harmony of the Gospels contains interpretive and clarifying notes by a number of scholars, some with differing views on the relationship between various Gospel accounts. Beyond the harmony, this volume includes articles designed to address issues that arise when one compares the four Gospels and seeks to give an integrated account of the life and teachings of Jesus. This harmony also contains eight four-color maps that illuminate the life and ministry of Jesus. This resource will be valuable to pastors and lay Bible teachers, and will serve well as a primary textbook in college and seminary courses on the Gospels and on the life and teachings of Jesus.
