Individual Titles

The Trials of Christ: The Moral Failures of Those Who Judge Jesus

  • Author: John Gilmore
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 176

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

Just who were the people who tried Jesus? Annas’ personal fortune from ‘skimming’ the income from sacrificial animals was over 2.5 billion pieces of silver. His son-in-law, Joseph Caiaphas, broke twelve laws in bringing Jesus before him. Herod Antipas, second son of Herod the Great, was a Roman educated playboy in charge of a small section of a third class imperial province——a man whose rash promise led to the beheading of John the Baptist. And Pontius Pilate? Pilate was an anti-Semitic politician more intent on cash-flow for building projects than justice. John Gilmore's The Trials of Christ takes a thorough look at this questionable group gathered to ensure Jesus got a fair trial.

Dr. Gilmore is not content simply to detail the legal maneuverings. He seeks to pierce through the layers of litigious wrappings to find the core motivations of those who ‘tried’ Christ. It warms this lawyer’s heart that with Gilmore’s careful exposition, Christ’s trials, bad ones at that, prove a rich source of exhortation.

—Meirwyn I. Walters, Assistant Professor of Law, Gordon College, Massachusetts

Dr. John Gilmore, a second-generation Welsh preacher, has resided in Cincinnati, Ohio, since 1982. He speaks at conferences and church seminars in the areas of eschatology, the passion narratives in the Gospels, and the spiritual concerns of senior citizens.

Jesus, Divine Messiah

  • Author: Robert Reymond
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 560

Jesus, Divine Messiah a compilation of two of Reymond's previous works: Jesus, Divine Messiah: Old Testament Witness and Jesus, Divine Messiah: New Testament Witness is a stalwart defense of Christ's Messiahship through both the Old and New Testaments. New material was written and added for this compilation to the original material, along with its copious number of citations to original languages, a great number of footnotes and frequent discussions of higher critical theories regarding Christ's diety.

Robert Reymond taught for more than 25 years on the faculties of Covenant Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary. He holds B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Bob Jones University and did post-doctoral studies at Fuller Seminary, New York University, Union Seminary, Tyndale House, Cambridge, and Rutherford House, Edinburgh. Currently he is the Emeritus Professor of Systematic Theology at Knox Theological Seminary, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The Unexpected Jesus

  • Author: R. C. Sproul
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 144

Jesus evokes the widest polarization of opinion of any historical figure: devotion from some, vitriolic abuse by others and astonishing indifference from many. Today most people just don't know who he really was, or is. There are always people willing to put forth all sorts of interesting ideas regarding Jesus, his role and his identity with books like The Da Vinci Code and The God Delusion proposing that he was only a man. It seems everyone has an opinion whether it is based on fact or fiction.

Those for and against have often resorted to name-calling, and in the Bible Jesus was both called by, and gave himself, unusual names. Noted theologian R. C. Sproul seeks to enlighten us by investigating what those names actually mean. Then, extrapolating from there, Sproul determines what it was that Jesus set out to accomplish.

Dr. R. C. Sproul, is a respected teacher, theologian, pastor, and he is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries. He currently serves as the director of Serve International and as senior minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford Florida. He can be heard teaching daily on the 'Renewing Your Mind' broadcast throughout sixty countries. He has a real heart for people to hear and live out the Word of God in their lives.

Christ in the Old Testament

  • Author: James A. Borland
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 192

This book focuses on God's appearances in human form rather than the Shekinah, the pillar of cloud or other manifestations of God's presence. Rather than simply a defense against erroneous views Borland presents a positive theology of theophanies. It is the most comprehensive book of its type, although not every Christophany is investigated all categories are represented. Borland looks at the characteristics of Christophanies and their use by God.

James A. Borland is Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology at Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia. He has been the Secretary-Treasurer of the Evangelical Theological Society for many years.

Jesus Is Lord: Christology Yesterday and Today

  • Author: Donald Macleod
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 208

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

The Expository Times once contained a famous article by Vincent Taylor asking the question "Does the New Testament call Jesus God?" Twenty years before Rudolf Bultmann said, "In describing Christ as God the New Testament still exercises great restraint." Taylor's conclusion was that the only clear statement of Jesus' deity was Thomas' words "My Lord and my God." In a later article in The Expository Times Dr Michael Austin dismissed even this. His conclusion? "The New Testament makes no unambiguous claim to Jesus' divinity." All this will come as a considerable surprise to ordinary readers of the New Testament!

Donald Macleod is recognized as one of the leading theologians alive. He is also able to explain complex thoughts with simplicity and clarity. This is his contribution to the debate on Christology. It builds on his previous writings about the Godhead and is a new work of international academic standing that is a rigorous theological defense of Christ's deity.

[Jesus is Lord is] both intellectually satisfying and spiritually enriching.

—Andy Bathgate, SU, Glasgow, Themelios

Donald Macleod is the Principal of the Free Church of Scotland College, Edinburgh. Regarded as one of Britain's most prominent theologians he has written extensively on a wide range of issues.

Revealing Jesus as Messiah

  • Author: Stuart Sacks
  • Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 160

The Messianic songs of Isaiah have been called the "Fifth Gospel" for their rich insight and illumination of the Christ and His mission. Stuart Sacks, Jewish believer, musician, author, and broadcaster shows us how these fascinating sections of the prophecy of Isaiah point to one person as the Jewish Messiah.

Every generation needs good guides to key portions of the scripture, and the Servant Songs of Isaiah, often referred to as the 'fifth gospel', are surely fundamental to our understanding of the person and work of the Messiah. Stuart Sacks, a Jewish believer, has provided a very accessible guide to the significance and application of these crucial passages. His Jewish insights are woven into the text of the book in an easy manner, I heartily recommend it.

—Walter Riggans, Church's Ministry among Jewish People
