The index volume provides references on thousands of topics, texts, persons, and illustrations. Although denomination, nationality, vocation, and theological position were not determinative factors in the selection of preachers to be included, an effort was made to select men from all sectors of the Christian faith and ministry. The preaching style and approach to sermon preparation of each man was also considered. An effort was made to include persons from a wide variety of preaching styles and approaches to sermon preparation.

Biblical Counseling for Today: A Handbook for Those Who Counsel from Scripture

  • Author: Jeffrey Watson
  • Editors: Charles R. Swindoll, and Roy B. Zuck
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 244

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

In his preface to this challenging book Jeff Watson describes biblical counseling as "a noble adjective married to a nervous noun." Believers are wise to be skeptical of much that is done in the name of counseling in secular settings. Even under the umbrella of "Christian counseling," one has heard horror stories of cases where God's Word has been misused. Jeff Watson makes a strong case in this volume for the legitimacy of marrying "biblical" and "counseling."

Christian counselors, says Watson, need to cultivate three fundamental skills in their patients:

  • How to tell their stories;
  • How to choose their goals wisely; and
  • How to practice changes in their lives.

Watson helps counselors achieve these goals by drawing on the interactions of Christ, the commands of Scripture, and the actions of the apostles and prophets. Thus, he marries counseling and biblical principles.

Jeff Watson knows biblical counseling. Most important of all, he uses God's Word as his manual. This is a book about counseling from a biblical perspective. This is not just advice from the world's best thinkers or philosophers. This is a book about imparting advice from the Book of books, the Bible.

Whether debating Marxists, college professors, or Islamic apologists, Josh McDowell's hallmark has always been to walk boldly into enemy territory and speak truth.

This is a sourcebook for doubting seekers as well as current believers who need persuasive information to share with friends. Evidence for Christianity is McDowell's compelling answer to the hard questions so many Christians are afraid to discuss.

Exploring the New Testament World

  • Author: Albert A. Bell, Jr.
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 289

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

To understand the New Testament fully, we need a thorough knowledge of the world that shaped its writing. In the world of the first century, Jewish, Greek, and Roman cultures mingled and collided in fascinating ways. But how can we know that world after almost 2,000 years? Drawing especially on information not available directly from the New Testament, Exploring the New Testament World plunges you into the social, religious, intellectual, and political dimensions of that time. It describes how people in the time of Jesus and the first Christians dressed, ate, worshiped, learned, worked, traveled, and related to government. In addition, this powerful guide helps you think like a first-century follower of Jesus.

Many confusing New Testament ideas or expressions become clear as you explore background material that its writers took for granted. Author Albert A. Bell, Jr. explains many of these puzzles with an accuracy that scholars will respect and an ease of understanding that will satisfy readers who are not experts in the Bible or ancient history. Exploring the New Testament World is illustrated throughout, enhanced by Professor Bell's own translation or relevant Greek and Latin sources, documented with notes that invite further study, and supplemented by author, Scripture, and subject indexes for quick reference. Ministers, Bible teachers, professors, and all Bible students will find Bell's work to be a must-have New Testament companion.

T. R. Glover's classic book, The World of the New Testament . . . will now be replaced for other generations . . . by the present volume written by Dr. Albert A. Bell, Jr. . . . The multitudinous facts of Greco-Roman history are treated with a completeness and proportion that make the book a veritable marvel of craftsmanship.

Passing Faith's Tests with Love and Joy: A Study of James, 1 & 2 Peter, 1–3 John, Jude

  • Editors: Jack W. Hayford, Kathy A. Hagan
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 160

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

Instead of speculating on religious theories, these epistles offer practical ways to live out the Christian faith "in the trenches" of daily life. They share the common themes of distinguishing true and living faith from various imitations and of living a life of righteousness in times of apostasy and unbelief. Each of these New Testament letters shows how genuine faith in Christ perseveres under fire; and each equips you to pass the tests of faith with the flying colors of love and joy.

From choosing to live obediently in the midst of an ungodly society to cultivating love within the family of God, Passing Faith's Tests with Love and Joy helps you find realistic ways to live out a vibrant faith under the pressures of an increasingly anti-religious world.

The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text, with Apparatus

  • Editors: Zane C. Hodges and Arthur L. Farstad
  • Publication Date: 1985
  • Pages: 810

This publication of The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text marks the first time in the twentieth century that a critical edition of the Greek New Testament has used the vast bulk of extant manuscripts as a basis for its text. This text therefore represents a sharp departure from the kind of text found in the currently popular third edition of the United Bible Societies Greek Testament and in the twenty-sixth edition of the Nestle-Aland text. The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text abandons the one-hundred-year-old theories of Westcott and Hort and the reliance on a few older Egyptian-based manuscripts. It offers students and scholars of the Greek New Testament a significant and viable option to the form of text that has enjoyed currency in recent decades, but which cries out for critical reassessment.

Zane C. Hodges is founder and president of Kerugma, Inc. He was formerly the chairman of the New Testament department at Dallas Theological Seminary where he taught for twenty-seven years. He holds degrees from Wheaton College and Dallas Theological Seminary. He has over forty years experience as a pastor and has authored many outstanding books and articles.

  • Publication Date: 2005

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

Where is ministry in America headed today? Dr. John MacArthur says, "I am concerned over a growing trend to produce strong natural leaders who know how to manage a business or enterprise but do not understand the church from Christ's perspective. Their leadership style and substance is earthly, not biblical or spiritual." Our Lord's favorite metaphor for spiritual leadership, the one He used most often to describe Himself, is that of the humble and hard-working shepherd. This book shows that biblically authentic ministry includes prayer, holiness, worship, discipleship, servanthood, and compassion—and that all ministry must be based on biblical mandates, not worldly ambition.

Encouraging, insightful, and challenging, Pastoral Ministry is designed for a new generation of shepherds who seek to lead with the passion of the apostles. Written by MacArthur and his colleagues at The Master’s Seminary, this guide outlines the biblical priorities essential to effective ministry.

Preaching that Changes Lives

  • Author: Michael Fabarez
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 224

There are lots of books on preaching but this is the only book with the centrality of changing lives. Certainly there are many books about preaching on the market today, but no author directs his attention to the clear message of changing lives more than Michael Fabarez.

Everything a pastor does must be done with the perspective of changing lives. When a pastor studies, it should be with the anticipation of changing lives. When he is looking for the right illustration, it must be through the lens of changing lives. When he sets forth the spiritual direction for the church, he must have the scope of changing lives in his focus. All other books dissect the essentials of pastoral ministry, but Preaching That Changes Lives takes it one step further!

Would you like to deepen your life and relationship with the Lord by cultivating a fruitful, abundant prayer life? This step by step study takes you through God's Word and teaches you the significance of prayer. It also provides insight into praying with authority, discerning God's answers, praying in the will of God, and much more.
