What Is a Healthy Church?
by Mark Dever
What is an ideal church, and how can you tell? How does it look different from other churches? More importantly, how does it act differently, especially in society? Many of us aren’t sure how to answer those questions, even though we probably have some preconceived idea. With this book, you don’t have to wonder any more. Author Mark Dever seeks to help believers recognize the key characteristics of a healthy church: expositional preaching, biblical theology, and a right understanding of the Gospel. Dever then calls us to develop those characteristics in our own churches. By following the example of New Testament authors and addressing church members from pastors to pew-sitters, Dever challenges all believers to do their part in maintaining the local church. What Is a Healthy Church? offers timeless truths and practical principles to help each of us fulfill our God-given roles in the body of Christ.

Three Views on the Rapture
by Craig A. Blaising, Hultberg, Alan, Douglas J. Moo
The rapture is a contested doctrine among evangelicals. Scholars generally hold one of three perspectives on the timing of and circumstances surrounding the rapture, all of which are presented in Three Views on the Rapture. The recent prominence of a pre-wrath understanding of the rapture calls for a fresh examination of this important but contested Christian belief. Alan D. Hultberg explains the pre-wrath view; Craig Blaising defends the pre-Tribulation view; and Douglas Moo sets forth the post-Tribulation view. Each author provides a substantive explanation of his position, which is critiqued by the other two authors. A thorough introduction gives a historical overview of the doctrine of the rapture and its effects on the church.

Are Miraculous Gifts for Today? Four Views
by Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Robert L. Saucy, Storms, Samuel, . . .

Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond
by Craig A. Blaising, Kenneth L. Gentry Jr., Robert B. Strimple

Understanding Spiritual Warfare: Four Views
by James K. Beilby, Paul R. Eddy
Understanding Spiritual Warfare offers four positions on the subject in dialogical fashion—all authors present their views and then respond to each of the other views. Each contributor interacts with the following questions: What is the nature of Satan and the demonic? What role does spiritual warfare serve in the Bible and how central is it to the biblical narrative? How should Christians conceive of and practice spiritual warfare? Can individual human beings be “demonized,” and if so, how does this happen and how is it to be dealt with? Can a Christian be demonized? And do “territorial spirits” exist? If so, are we called directly to engage them in “strategic level” spiritual warfare?
Four Views on Hell
by Hayes, Zachary J., Clark Pinnock, John Walvoord
Most contemporary Christians acknowledge the doctrine of hell, but they’d rather not think about how God punishes the wicked. Four Views on Hell meets this subject head-on with different views on what Scriptures says. Is hell to be understood literally as a place of eternal smoke and flames? Or are such images simply metaphors for a real but different form of punishment? Is there such a thing as “conditional immortality,” in which God annihilates the souls of the wicked rather than punishing them endlessly? Is there a purgatory, and if so, how does it fit into the picture? This volume allows the reader to see the four views on hell—literal, metaphorical, conditional, and purgatorial—in interaction with each other. Each view in turn is presented, critiqued, and defended. This evenhanded approach is ideal for comparing and contrasting views in order to form a personal conclusion about one of Christianity’s key doctrines.
All You Want to Know About Hell: Three Christian Views of God's Final Solution to the Problem of Sin
by Steve Gregg

All You Want to Know About Hell explains and critiques the three views on hell, presenting all the biblical arguments for and against each view. Greeg does not espouse any one view, but presents the evidence for each for readers to decide for themselves.

The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit
by Larry Pettegrew
The Bible describes the Holy Spirit as helper, comforter, counselor, and the one who empowers Christian living. In The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit, Larry Pettegrew explains how the Holy Spirit’s role in the lives of Christians is at the heart of one of the church’s most difficult and controversial issues. Pettegrew argues that the The day of Pentecost changed the Holy Spirit’s role, but identifying how that role changed is a difficult task. The biblical data is puzzling and readers often confuse the Bible’s teaching on the Holy Spirit by isolating individual verses and elevating personal experience over sound biblical doctrine. The New Covenant Ministry of the Holy Spirit provides thorough exegesis in order to build an accurate and meaningful biblical theology of the Holy Spirit. Pettegrew also addresses personal spirituality, discussing the filling, fruit, and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
