Book Excerpt :

Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species has changed the landscape of religious thought in many ways. There is a widespread assumption that before Darwin, all Christians believed that the world was created some 6,000 years ago over a period of 6 days. After Darwin, the first chapters of Genesis were either rejected totally by skeptics or defended vehemently in scientific creationism. This book tells a very different story. Bringing together contributions from biblical scholars, historians and contemporary theologians, it is demonstrated that both Jewish and Christian scholars read Genesis in a non-literal way long before Darwin. Even during the nineteenth century, there was a wide range of responses from religious believers towards evolution, many of them very positive. Stephen C. Barton and David Wilkinson argue that being receptive to the continuing relevance of Genesis today regarding questions of gender, cosmology, and the environment is a lively option.

The Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers

Book Short Summary:

A method of interpretation--a hermeneutic--is indispensable for understanding Scripture, constructing theology, and living the Christian life, but most contemporary hermeneutical systems fail to acknowledge the principles and practices of the biblical writers themselves. Christians today cannot employ a truly biblical view of the Bible unless they understand why the prophets and apostles interpreted Scripture the way they did. To this end, Abner Chou proposes a "hermeneutic of obedience," in which believers learn to interpret Scripture the way the biblical authors did--including understanding the New Testament's use of the Old Testament. Chou first unfolds the "prophetic hermeneutic" of the Old Testament authors, and demonstrates the continuity of this approach with the "apostolic hermeneutic" of the New Testament authors.

Book Short Summary:

The chapters of this book evolved over a period of time as I was listening to young Christians talking about different subjects and realizing the lack of understanding and Bible knowledge they were getting from different sources. Seeing most young Christians don't have any real access to Bible school training and receive a lot of their information from friends, family, and various sources I became burdened to teach them in depth about the subjects they would talk about. I began to write these things down that enabled me to give them something to read over and refer to when they needed to refresh their memory. These different subjects are basic information that I believe all Christians should understand to help them stay on the path God intended and not be drawn into doctrine misunderstandings. Having been to Kenya, Africa, on a mission trip where I had the ability to teach some of the things in this book I was asked if I could give them all of these teachings in a book as they are hungry for the teachings of the Word of God. That prompted me to publish these sixteen Bible lessons for the benefit of those pastors in Africa and anywhere else that people are hungry for the understanding of the Word of God. I hope the reader finds these chapters both inspiring and encouraging in their search for knowledge and understanding in their walk with the Lord.

Book Short Summary:

The controversial Bible scholar and author of The Evolution of Adam recounts his transformative spiritual journey in which he discovered a new, more honest way to love and appreciate God’s Word. Trained as an evangelical Bible scholar, Peter Enns loved the Scriptures and shared his devotion, teaching at Westminster Theological Seminary. But the further he studied the Bible, the more he found himself confronted by questions that could neither be answered within the rigid framework of his religious instruction or accepted among the conservative evangelical community. Rejecting the increasingly complicated intellectual games used by conservative Christians to “protect” the Bible, Enns was conflicted. Is this what God really requires? How could God’s plan for divine inspiration mean ignoring what is really written in the Bible? These questions eventually cost Enns his job—but they also opened a new spiritual path for him to follow. The Bible Tells Me So chronicles Enns’s spiritual odyssey, how he came to see beyond restrictive doctrine and learned to embrace God’s Word as it is actually written. As he explores questions progressive evangelical readers of Scripture commonly face yet fear voicing, Enns reveals that they are the very questions that God wants us to consider—the essence of our spiritual study.

Book Short Summary:

What kind of authority does Scripture have? How is Scripture's authority to be negotiated in relation to other sources of authority? And what are the implications of confessing the Bible to be authoritative? The Bible: Culture, Community and Society seeks to answer these questions, covering three core themes. First, reading the Bible in the context of modernity - the challenges the intellectual history of modernity has posed to the Bible's authority and how historical work can co-exist with a commitment to the Bible as the Word of God. Secondly, the Bible as a text that forms the church community - how the Bible as an authoritative text shapes a culture. Thirdly, reading the Bible as a public text and the challenges posed by holding to the Bible as the Word of God in a religiously diverse context. The highly distinguished contributors include Ben Quash, David Ferguson, Angus Paddison and Zoë Bennett.

Book Short Summary:

Dr Nick Hawkes gathers evidence from science, history, and mathematics to seek out the signature of God. By surveying the various fields of study, he gathers a mass of evidence, concluding that faith in God is reasonable and that the evidence invites it. Addressing the big questions of origins and meaning, Hawkes considers the cosmos and the arguments for a Creator behind creation. He looks at biology, and the ideas of Darwin and Dr Richard Dawkins. He examines the significance of suffering and the phenomenon of mathematics - the code by which we understand how things work. He sifts through history and how it has been 'molded'. He considers the nature of truth, and whether it is ever knowable, and if so how; and he takes a long, hard look at ideas about the afterlife. What we believe is important. It becomes our identity, something we stake our very lives upon. Who Ordered The Universe? is essential reading for those battling with identity and their place in the world. It is the ideal gift for a non-Christian friend.

  • Pdf File: adam-as-israel.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Postell contends that the opening chapters of the Bible, when interpreted as a strategic literary introduction to the Torah and to the Tanakh, intentionally foreshadows Israel's failure to keep the Sinai Covenant and their consequent exile from the Promised Land, in order to point the reader to a future work of God. Postell highlights numerous intentional links between the story of Adam and the story of Israel and, in the process, explains numerous otherwise perplexing features of the Eden story. Postell employs a wealth of theologies to support his argument including those of Nicholas of Lyra, John Calvin, Wellhausen, Johannes Coccejus and Matthew Poole; successfully breathing new life into the wealth of exegeses.

Book Short Summary:

The Beast and Babylon answers some age-old questions about the two symbolic entities featured in the book of Revelation. These symbols have historically been typified as a revived Roman Empire, and its God-opposing religious counterparts that rise up (in Europe), prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. In contrast, this informative and timely study reveals that the latter-day beast power rises out of not one, but out of three defunct previous empires in the Middle East; knownvia Daniels metaphorsas the lion, bear, and leopard kingdoms. It appears from Daniel 7:1112, that long after the last manifestation of the Roman Empire is destroyed, these three dormant empires are revived for a season and a time. During their rejuvenation, they reappear in Revelation 13 and 17 in the form of a tripartite, seven-headed, political/religious beast power that emerges from the topographies of the ancient Grecian (leopard), Persian (bear), and Babylonian (lion) kingdoms. Furthermore, these combined territories encompass ten sovereign Islamic horn nations that were revealed after the Ottoman Empire was abolished ninety-five years ago. Today, many of these Islamic nations contain embedded terrorist groups whose fanatical Jihadist leaders are determined to resurrect a radical pan-Islamic Caliphate, by which to establish Sharia law throughout the World. To achieve these objectives, the latter-day nascent imperial beast powerin conjunction with ten like-minded insurgent leadersmust initiate a global Jihad to incite war on the people of God, and conspire to destroy a religious city called Mystery, Babylon the Great.

Book Short Summary:

The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” showing how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on each and every page of the Bible. In this accessible study, pastor and author Greg Gilbert examines the message of James, exploring the book’s difficult teachings on wealth, anointing with oil, prayer, healing, and the relationship between faith and works. Through clear exposition of the biblical text and challenging application questions, Gilbert helps readers rightly understand James as a stirring exhortation to fruitfulness, ultimately written to remind Christians of the necessary connection between genuine faith and heartfelt obedience.

Book Short Summary:

The United States is one of history's great Christian nations, but our unique history, success, and global impact have seduced us into believing we are something more--God's New Israel, the new order of the ages, the last best hope of mankind, a redeemer nation. Using the subtle categories that arise from biblical narrative, Between Babel and Beast analyzes how the heresy of Americanism inspired America's rise to hegemony while blinding American Christians to our failures and abuses of power. The book demonstrates that the church best serves the genuine good of the United States by training witnesses--martyr-citizens of God's Abrahamic empire.

Book Short Summary:

How many times have you heard incomplete facts explaining why the dinosaurs and prehistoric man walked on the earth? Have these theories given by man left you more confused and unsure of what the truth really is? First Corinthians 14:33 tells us, gFor God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. h Who is really behind the mystery of evolution that leaves you confused and unsure of what to believe? Job 41:32 warns of Satan fs deception as the mighty sea serpent, "He maketh a path to shine after him, one would think the deep to be hoary (to appear ancient or old)." The confusion of evolution comes from a spiritual power struggle between God, "the Creator", and Satan, "the counterfeiter" who is reaching for his own glory over the earth's inhabitance. John 8:44 says of Satan, "When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it." In all reality, why would God create the primary dinosaurs that cause doubt in Him and continues to rob Him of His glory of a perfect creation? As you read The Serpent Within The Beast, you will discover Satan fs hidden power to deceive mankind through the discovery of the giant prehistoric bones and fossils. Satan is the evil counterfeiter of the ways of God which dates back to before God created perfect flesh on the earth. Through Satan fs powers to do great wonders, he said, gI will be like the Most High, h and attempted to exalt himself as a god. Now learn how, when, and why the earth struggles with evolution fs past, as we journey through the Word of God to unveil Satan fs lies of deception. This book clearly provides a complete biblical explanation of why the dinosaurs and prehistoric man came into existence and of their destruction as it is written in God fs Word.

Book Short Summary:

In medieval literature, when humans and animals meet—whether as friends or foes—issues of mastery and submission are often at stake. In the Skin of a Beast shows how the concept of sovereignty comes to the fore in such narratives, reflecting larger concerns about relations of authority and dominion at play in both human-animal and human-human interactions. Peggy McCracken discusses a range of literary texts and images from medieval France, including romances in which animal skins appear in symbolic displays of power, fictional explorations of the wolf’s desire for human domestication, and tales of women and snakes converging in a representation of territorial claims and noble status. These works reveal that the qualities traditionally used to define sovereignty—lineage and gender among them—are in fact mobile and contingent. In medieval literary texts, as McCracken demonstrates, human dominion over animals is a disputed model for sovereign relations among people: it justifies exploitation even as it mandates protection and care, and it depends on reiterations of human-animal difference that paradoxically expose the tenuous nature of human exceptionalism.

Book Short Summary:

The identity of the Beast rising out of the sea in Revelation 13 is a hotly debated topic. Some believe the Beast has come already, while others believe that he is alive today, waiting to take his position of power. One of the key passages cited by all groups is in Revelation 13:1–8, 18. Yet the imagery of the book of Revelation has opened it to misinterpretation by modern-day interpreters who are unfamiliar with the apocalyptic literary genre. Jonathan Leonard explains the meaning of the Beast of Revelation 13:1–8, 18 in its first century context and its relevance to members of the early church. The imagery of the Beast of Revelation is not seen as instilling fear into the hearts of believers concerning the future, but serves as a stinging critique of imperial power, idolatry, and oppression. When properly viewed in its original context, the unveiling of the Beast can transcend the first century and serve to strengthen the testimony of the church of Jesus Christ in the present day.

Book Short Summary:

"Not only do I believe that it is possible to maintain moral standards without the crutch of religion but I would argue that it is the only way to achieve true goodness." Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings compiles popular and lesser-known arguments against the principles established by the Christian canon. Using a phenomenological approach to build his case based on in-depth study at the University of California, Santa Barbara McAfee analyzes the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament doctrine to build a logical and reasonable case against their validity. From contradictions between lived and portrayed religions to factual errors within the texts themselves, no stone is left unturned in this fully updated and expanded refutation of Christianity.

Book Short Summary:

There be dragons all over the Bible. From the great sea monsters of Genesis to the great dragon of Revelation, dragons appear as the Bible opens and closes, and they pop their grisly heads up at various junctures in between. How did they get there and what on earth (or indeed in heaven) are they doing there? This is a book for those who find standard discussions of faith and suffering frustrating. Andy Angel opens up the rich biblical tradition of living with God in the midst of suffering. He takes the reader on a journey of exploration through biblical texts that are often overlooked on account of their strangeness--texts about dragons. He shows how these peculiar passages open up a language of prayer through suffering in which people share their anger, weariness, disillusionment, and even joy in suffering with God. Angel explores how such "weird" Scriptures open up a whole new way of praying and reveal a God who approves of honest spirituality, a spirituality that the Bible holds open but too many of its interpreters do not.

Book Short Summary:

This book shows readers that, " It is only with the [spiritual] heart that one can see rightly, for what is essential is invisible to the eye " (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) Dividing Asunder: The Invisible Inner Self is like a photo album of written pictures revealing the Creator, God, his nature, and plans for you. Turning the pages, you will see his heart as he created all that is, attempting thereby to unveil his invisible self in ways visible to humanity. You'll fall in love with him! The rainbow will take on new meaning as you learn of its true reminder! You'll see his creation distinction between animals and humans. It defines the image and likeness to God in which you are made. It details the fall of the first man and God's redemption plan. The deal that was made in heaven and carried out through his Son, Jesus Christ, will move you to a meaningful relationship with him. This book shows why one needs salvation, how it is possible, where it takes place inside of you, and its advantages. Like disassembling a motor, Dividing Asunder takes apart your invisible organs for a careful study then puts them back together for a smoother run. It explains in simple terms the functions of your invisible inner self. It shows the difference in sin and sins, in soul and spirit, and the heart's relationship to them. The author points out that doctors must understand how the healthy body works in order to treat the sick. In the same manner and reasoning, humans must understand their immaterial organs, their invisible inner self. Otherwise, we spend lots of time and money treating the soul's mind, emotion, and will, when the spirit may be the problem and vice versa. In confusing soul and spirit, the deceitful works of Satan go unnoticed and not attended to. Via this book, one learns to label a thought or action by its originating root instead of its outward appearance. Like the water depths of a swimming pool, Dividing Asunder moves from levels elementary to seminary. It has something for everyone: an invitation for nonbelievers; others of faith will be encouraged, their understanding enlightened, and some will find that long-awaited assurance! With this book, you will be equipped with knowledge, suited for spiritual warfare, and confident of victory! You need this book!

Book Short Summary:

You may be hostile to the God of the Bible—or maybe you’re a dutiful Christian whose faith is dry and stale. Dr. John K. LaShell draws on Jonathan Edwards to explain the beauty of God. He writes for two kinds of readers: those who suspect God is unlovely, and those who want to love Him more.
