Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

What does baptism do to the baptized? Nothing? Something? In this study, Peter Leithart examines this single question of baptismal efficacy. He challenges several common but false assumptions about God, man, the church, salvation, and more that confuse discussions about baptism. He aims to offer a careful and simple discussion of all the central biblical texts that speak to us about baptism, the nature of signs and rites, the character of the church as the body of Christ, and the possibility of apostasy. In the end, he urges us to face up to the wonderful conclusion that Scripture attributes an astonishing power to the initiation rite of baptism.

From Silence to Song: The Davidic Liturgical Revolution

Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The debate in many Reformed circles over worship music is only a small part of the larger question of Reformed liturgics. And dancing. All sides admit that the New Testament offers relatively little instruction on liturgy, and so the debate over the regulative principle continues with apparently little hope for resolution. In this study, Peter Leithart’s key insight reveals a prominent scriptural example of a liturgy that interprets God’s commands for worship in ways far more biblically grounded than traditional regulativism allows. King David’s tabernacle worship becomes a rich story, not only in respect to liturgical wisdom, but also to the significance of Zion in the fulfillments of the Christian era.

A Great Mystery: Fourteen Wedding Sermons

  • Author: Peter J. Leithart
  • Publisher: Canon Press
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 112

Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

At a time when the institution of marriage is failing in our culture, Christians are making a renewed commitment to discover the richness of biblical marriages that are rooted in the divine life of the Trinity. In this collection of wedding sermons, Peter Leithart illuminates the subject from many perspectives, forming a loose, down-to-earth “systematic theology of marriage” that connects marriage with the doctrines of the Trinity, creation, salvation, sacraments, church, eschatology, and more. The result is a series of enlightening and invigorating exhortations for Christian couples at any stage of their married life.

A House For My Name: A Survey of the Old Testament

  • Author: Peter J. Leithart
  • Publisher: Canon Press
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 288

Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. This Old Testament survey, written for junior high readers and up, reveals the rich weave that makes Scripture the Story of stories. Leithart has a gift for conveying the deep truths of Scripture in a gripping and understandable way. Even seminary students rave about this one.

A Son to Me: An Exposition of 1 & 2 Samuel

  • Author: Peter J. Leithart
  • Publisher: Canon Press
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 320

Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Samuel. Saul. David. Goliath. Jonathan. When we think of 1 & 2 Samuel, these names and the stories that make them memorable generally come to mind. But these narratives are more than mere history.

Peter Leithart offers here a typological reading of 1 & 2 Samuel as a unified book. By giving careful attention to the book's literary structures and its patterns of types and antitypes, Leithart unveils the symbolic world of Samuel's cumulative and cohesive story. His reading enhances our understanding of New Testament Christology while at the same time giving us a framework for applying the Old Testament to our own lives.

The Promise of His Appearing: An Exposition of Second Peter

  • Author: Peter J. Leithart
  • Publisher: Canon Press
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 126

Sample Pages 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The second book of Peter has long troubled biblical scholars and interpreters. Not only has its authorship been disputed, but also its claims about the imminent return of Christ. In this study, Peter Leithart offers a preterist reading of the epistle, arguing that it describes first-century events and not the end of the world. At the same time, he maintains orthodoxy, avoiding hyper-preterism and affirming the epistle’s authenticity. Leithart’s accessible style and convincing arguments make a valuable addition to the study of the Bible’s apocalyptic prophecies.
