. . . And Marries Another: Divorce and Remarriage in the Teaching of the New Testament

  • Author: Craig Keener
  • Publisher: Baker Academic

  • Pages: 272

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

Carefully documented and compassionate, this book explores how early Christians would have understood the statements of Jesus and Paul on divorce and remarriage. Keener then builds a soundly scriptural view of divorce and remarriage—a view that reminds the church that all of its members are forgiven people.

A first-rate piece of pastoral scholarship.

Gift and Giver: The Holy Spirit for Today

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

Answering three crucial questions about the Holy Spirit, meticulous scholar Craig Keener explains the various evangelical understandings of the role of the Holy Spirit. He also identifies where common ground may be found. His desire is for Christians to “work for consensus” and unity in God’s work despite our differences. Intended to provoke helpful dialogue by all Christians on a controversial topic, Gift and Giver will augment your understanding of the Spirit and prepare you to discuss the issues competently.

The level-headed, anecdotally enriched exegesis that Craig Keener offers in this book broadens the categories of Spirit-baptism, ongoing charismata, and current manifestations of the Spirit in a way that is pacifying, unifying, and edifying, and neatly rounds off a good deal of recent debate.

J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College, Vancouver

Both scholarly and warmly personal, it should be helpful to Pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, and any others needing a fresh perspective on the Holy Spirit’s work today.

Vinson Synan, dean, School of Divinity Regent University, VA

Keener assures us that we can love and embrace God the Holy Spirit and his gifts with intellectual integrity and a genuine humility that breaks the back of divisiveness.

—Todd Hunter, former national director of the Vineyard in the USA

The Spirit in the Gospels and Acts

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

Carefully mine the New Testament gospels and the book of Acts to understand what the Holy Spirit meant in the lives of early believers with Craig Keener. Christianity did not arise in a vacuum, but rather it appropriated, modified, and utilized the Jewish understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit. By understanding the world in which Christianity emerged, we can better understand the earliest believers’ experience of God’s empowering and purifying Spirit.

[A] detailed and stimulating treatment of the selected passages, and full of observations beyond the proposed ambit of the study.

Bill Salier, Reformed Theological Review

Keener handles both the biblical text and extra-biblical sources carefully and even-handedly. He refers consistently to primary sources, and he has included extensive bibliographical resources and indexes.
