Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters

Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters
Gorman, Michael J
$48.00

Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul’s writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church.

An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman’s Apostle of the Crucified Lord unpacks the many dimensions of Paul’s thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul’s world, his résumé, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul.

Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, Apostle of the Crucified Lord is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul’s challenging letters.

THIS COMPREHENSIVE, WIDELY USED TEXT by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout.

The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace.

Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah

Be Comforted: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God: OT Commentary Isaiah
Wiersbe, Warren W
$14.99

For anyone who thinks that comfort is equivalent to pity and that it is only priceless to those who need an emotional crutch, best-selling author Warren Wiersbe applies the words of the prophet Isaiah to prove that God's comfort is no such thing. The word comfort actually translates to repent in Hebrew; our English translation, however, adds another dimension to the word since it originated from two Latin words meaning with strength.

With definitions and insights like this, the pastor of pastors and phenomenal author Warren Wiersbe continues to enliven the Scriptures as he weaves the words of Isaiah with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions for every chapter, creating a study guide that can be used in personal Bible study or with a group. With over 4 million copies of his Be series alone in circulation, he is a man who has given his life to a deep examination of the Word of God, to communicating it in such a way that the masses see its relevance for today.

    Catholic Introduction to the Bible: The Old Testament

    Catholic Introduction to the Bible: The Old Testament
    Bergsma, John
    $54.95

    Although many Catholics are familiar with the four Gospels and other writings of the New Testament, for most, reading the Old Testament is like walking into a foreign land. Who wrote these forty-six books? When were they written? Why were they written? What are we to make of their laws, stories, histories, and prophecies? Should the Old Testament be read by itself or in light of the New Testament?

    John Bergsma and Brant Pitre offer readable in-depth answers to these questions as they introduce each book of the Old Testament. They not only examine the literature from a historical and cultural perspective but also interpret it theologically, drawing on the New Testament and the faith of the Catholic Church. Unique among introductions, this volume places the Old Testament in its liturgical context, showing how its passages are employed in the current Lectionary used at Mass.

    Accessible to nonexperts, this thorough and up-to-date introduction to the Old Testament can serve as an idea textbook for biblical studies. Its unique approach, along with its maps, illustrations, and other reference materials, makes it a valuable resource for seminarians, priests, Scripture scholars, theologians, and catechists, as well as anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the Bible.

    Introduction to the Prophets: Their Stories, Sayings, and Scrolls
    Leclerc, Thomas L
    $39.95
    Now in a second edition, this popular introductory text considers not only each of the prophetic books in the Hebrew Bible, but also treats the stories of prophets found in the Pentateuch and historical books. The biblical texts are approached from several different perspectives. The author places each story and prophetic book in its historical context to understand the concerns the prophets addressed in their own time. He examines literary aspects and theological significance of the texts, and finally the significance of the prophet in post-biblical traditions, especially in the Jewish and Christian lectionaries. Among the new features: ● An updated table of contents and visual aids was well as reference resources in "For Further Study." ● "Questions for Review" at the end of each chapter. ● A chapter on the book of Daniel. +

    John

    John
    Whitacre, Rodney A
    $35.00

    The Gospel of John declares its purpose clearly—"these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." Thus it fulfills a dual function, encouraging believers and providing them with evidences for proclaiming that Jesus is God's Messiah, the divine, incarnate Son of God.

    Christians today, as in the first century, can draw strength and courage from John's telling of the story of Jesus, a telling that consistently reflects not only the words and deeds of Jesus but their inner significance. We are called to worship as we find the Father, Son and Spirit revealed in the Gospel. And as in Jesus we discover God's light, life and love, we learn to respond in faith, humility and obedience.

    Throughout, Whitacre explains what the gospel meant to its original hearers and its application for us today.

    Knowing God the Father Through the Old Testament

    Knowing God the Father Through the Old Testament
    Wright, Christopher J H
    $25.00

    It's almost second nature for Christians to call God Father. Jesus taught his followers as much, although for them it was apparently a surprising practice. The worshiping community of the Old Testament used fatherly images for understanding God's character and actions, but "Father" was not a common way for believers to address God.

    In Knowing God the Father Through the Old Testament, Christopher Wright explores in depth the images that pervade the biblical narratives, psalms and prophetic texts of the Old Testament. God is acknowledged as tender yet terrifying, challenging to the nations and yet intimately personal, offering loving care, provision, discipline and forgiveness.

    This is the God whom Jesus knew, and whom we can know, as Father. Such knowledge of God is far from merely devotional or doctrinal, but governs our worldview, personal and social ethics, and expectations of the future.

    Meeting St. Mark Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message

    Meeting St. Mark Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message
    Harrington, Daniel J
    $12.95

    Meeting St. Mark Today, the final book in Fr. Daniel J. Harrington's series on the Gospels, is a straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this synoptic Gospel. And, like the other books in the Meeting . . . Today series, it effectively closes the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality.

    The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel, and then moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel. Part Three of the book explains how Mark's Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: What did Jesus suffer?, and Why did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do people suffer? The book's final section includes five meditations on suffering. Additionally, each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, ideal for group or individual Bible study.

    Ultimately, Meeting St. Mark Today opens the theological treasure chest of this Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus' suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.

    A clear, concise, and respectful presentation of Mark's Gospel--and what Jesus' suffering means for us

    Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, is well known for his superb New Testament scholarship, but he is also highly regarded for his exceptional ability to bridge the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality. In Meeting St. Mark Today, the final book in this series on the Gospels, Harrington
    has provided another straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this
    synoptic Gospel.
    The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel. It moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel, which clearly demonstrates the human side of Jesus. Part Three of the book explains how Mark's Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: What did Jesus suffer?, and Why did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do people suffer? The book's final section includes five meditations on suffering, based on lectionary readings from Year B (St. Mark) in the Sunday lectionary cycle.
    Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making Meeting St. Mark Today an ideal resource for individual Scripture study or group Bible study. The readings from Mark's Gospel for all Sundays and Feasts in Cycle B are listed at the end of the book.
    Ultimately, Meeting St. Mark Today opens the theological treasure chest of this easily overlooked Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus' suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.

    Meeting St. Paul Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message
    Harrington, Daniel J
    $14.99

    The teachings of St. Paul permeate just about everything Christians believe and practice, but many of us know very little about this great apostle of the Church.
    In Meeting Paul Today, one of the most respected scholars in the Catholic faith, Daniel Harrington, SJ, brings Paul and his teachings to life. Harrington, writing with great respect for the apostle and his ministry, covers three main topics in this helpful and highly readable book for any discerning Christian. First, he describes what Paul was really like, from his days as a Pharisee to his arduous years as a missionary. Second, he helps readers interpret Paul's letters through literary, historical, and theological lenses. Finally, he thoughtfully surveys the specific purpose, major points, and other compelling particulars of each epistle.

    Mission of the Messiah: On the Gospel of Luke

    Mission of the Messiah
    Gray, Tim
    $11.95
    Mission of the Messiah is a compelling study of the Gospel of Luke that presents the messianic mission of Jesus as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. The review questions at the end of each chapter provide fresh material for individual reflection or group discussion. This book is a must for anyone whose heart is burning to know and love Christ more profoundly. From the Introduction: The goal of this study of Luke is to give a taste of that Bible study Jesus gave on the road to Emmaus. As we study God's holy Word, our hearts too will burn with the fire of God's love (cf. Lk. 12:49), just as the disciples experienced God's love on the dusty road to Emmaus. If we read the Gospel with the prayer and contemplation that Saint Thérèse did, we too shall find "fresh lights there, hidden and enthralling meanings." Dr. Tim Gray is the President of the Augustine Institute, an MA program in Sacred Scripture and Evangelization & Catechesis in Denver. He is also Professor of Sacred Scripture at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary. He holds a PhD in Biblical Studies from Catholic University of America, a Th.M. in Scripture from Duke University, and an M.A. in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. A nationally renowned speaker, Dr. Gray has filmed numerous series for EWTN. He is a partner with Jeff Cavins in The Great Adventure Bible Timeline Catholic Bible study series. Dr. Gray resides in Littleton, Colorado with his wife, Kris, and their son Joseph. About the Series: The Kingdom studies explore the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ as revealed in the New Testament and carried on by His Church. Solid, trustworthy content in language anyone can appreciate.

    Psalm Basics for Catholics: Seeing Salvation History in a New Way

    Psalm Basics for Catholics: Seeing Salvation History in a New Way
    Bergsma, John
    $15.95
    In his third back-to-basics look at the Bible, popular theology professor and bestselling Catholic author and speaker John Bergsma highlights the presence of Jesus in the psalms and helps us understand their meaning in light of the story of salvation. Bergsma employs the same conversational style and simple illustrations found in Bible Basics for Catholics and New Testament Basics for Catholics to help bridge the gap between the world of contemporary Catholics and the ancient world of the Bible.

    In Psalm Basics for Catholics, John Bergsma introduces us to King David, the story of Israel, and the salvation of the Jewish people through the coming of Jesus.

    For more than two thousand years, Christians have sung, chanted, and prayed the psalms, a practice of worship inherited from our Jewish ancestors in faith. Whether prayed during Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, or in personal reflection, these ancient hymns continue to be a guiding light for Catholics. Yet rarely do we step back and look at how the psalms fit into the story of salvation revealed in the Bible the way Bergsma does here.

    Bergsma also addresses common questions about the psalms, including

  • Do the psalms really predict Jesus?
  • What do we make of the so-called curse psalms?
  • Why do we pray the psalms in the Liturgy of the Hours?
  • How do I read and pray the psalms?
  • Bergsma's insightful, practical examination of the psalms helps Catholics see how their promise is fulfilled in Christ.
