For years, Vine’s Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople, selling millions of copies. But sixty-plus years of scholarship have shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate, more thorough dictionary of Bible words. William Mounce, whose Greek grammar has been used by more than 100,000 college and seminary students, is the editor of this new dictionary, which will become the layperson’s gold standard for biblical word studies.Mounce’s is ideal for the reader with limited or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who wants greater insight into the meanings of biblical words to enhance Bible study. It is also the perfect reference for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word’s meaning without wading through more technical studies.What makes Mounce’s superior to Vine’s?· The most accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship· Both Greek and Hebrew words are found under each English entry (Vine’s separates them)· Employs both Strong’s and G/K numbering systems (Vine’s only uses Strong’s)· Mounce’s accuracy is endorsed by leading scholars

Sometimes the big and small decisions in life seem overwhelming. How do you know what choices to make about your career, kids, relationships? Even when you make good decisions, how do you avoid temptation along the way? In What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do, Dr. David Jeremiah walks you through the book of James to glean God’s wisdom on issues such as finances, faith, and decision making. Most significantly, this practical book shows you how to have the kind of faith that perseveres in persecution, resists temptation, and responds obediently to God’s Word. What does it look like to consider God in all your plans, depend on God rather than wealth, and put prayer above your personal efforts? It looks, as James discovered, like living a life of great joy.

The Complete Topical Guide to the Bible provides Scripture references, definitions, and cross-references for the study of the Bible by topic. The topical approach differs significantly from the lexical approach of a concordance, and a topical guide is an essential supplement to a concordance. While a concordance is limited to the connection of biblical passages in which the same word appears, the topical approach identifies and connects all of the underlying concepts related to a topic. A concordance would not yield John 3:16 for a study of grace because the word grace does not appear in the verse, but The Complete Topical Guide to the Bible includes John 3:16 for grace because it's an essential verse on the topic. The topics in this resource include biblical, doctrinal, and historical subjects, and they are organized into nine major categories: God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, creation, humanity, sin and salvation, God's people, the life of the believer, and the last things. In addition to the great themes of the biblical message, practical issues of Christian living are also included.

Retaliation of the Cursed: A Historical Investigation of The Origins of Worship, World Religion, Mythology, Paganism, Astrology and Atheism, and Their Contributions Leading to Modern Hinduism is a sweeping look at the ancient cross-cultural flows that worked to shape the long legacies of the major religions, right up to our contemporary moment. Primarily grounded in examining the Sumerian, Akkadian, Greek, Egyptian, Pagan, and biblical origins of various religious figures, practices, and beliefs, but drawing on a wide array of mythologies that stretch beyond this, this book is stunning in its scope and impressive in the rich, fascinating detail in which it presents its findings. Ultimately, author Stephen Martin makes a compelling case for the shared origins of the world’s great religions, arguing that by reincorporating many previously excommunicated spiritualities and atheisms, Hinduism manifested itself as the complex, multi-faceted cosmology it is today. As well-suited to an amateur audience as it would to a professional theologian, this book is sure to make an excellent read for anyone interested in studies of comparative religion or ancient civilizations—or those simply interested in better understanding the roots of the religious beliefs and spiritual practices of themselves and those around them.

Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament takes readers on a powerful journey through the vast landscape of Roman-occupied Judea during the first century and the genesis of Christianity. This landscape serves as the backdrop for twelve amazing stories of women whose paths intersect, either by providence or design, with the paths of Jesus or Paul. Some of these women are familiar, such as Mary, the mother of Jesus, while others, like the wife of the infamous Pontius Pilate, are lesser known. Whether she is popular or obscure, good or bad, each woman’s story is an important part of the overall Christian narrative. Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament invites readers to take a more nuanced look at twelve stories that feature women, to explore their lives more deeply in historical context, and to understand the real story that includes both men and women. The book goes beyond simply telling the story of a particular biblical woman to challenge readers to explore the enduring lessons the ancient writers sought to impart. These timeless lessons are as important for us today as they were thousands of years ago.

While growing up I struggled immensely with my sexuality and faith. I grew up in church, went to a Christian university, but desired a homosexual lifestyle; I grew up as a Christian but lived divided in my heart. I walked away from God for years because I wanted what felt good and right to me. I was searching for satisfaction in the desires of my heart and it wasn’t until I hit rock bottom that I turned fully to God to fulfill that desire. When God asked me why I wasn’t turning to Him as my full source of satisfaction, I told Him, “Trust me, I’ve got this.” It was absurd and arrogant, but a profound insight into the true reality of where my soul stood. I wanted love and acceptance, but the gratification that these things brought was never enough to appease my thirsting soul. While I was running from God, He never stopped pursuing me. He just wanted my heart. He wanted to show me that He was everything I was looking for and more. God doesn’t stop caring for us and will always be there when we realize this world isn’t enough.

The Holy Bible, "the Book Nobody Knows," as described by one Bruce Barton, is a book of ancient stories, prophecies, and wisdom literatures. But the Bible does have other specific themes. It contains specific teachings, knowledge and instructions on the purposes of the Creator and His plan for human salvation. In the series, The Foundation of Biblical Faith, the foundational knowledge and teachings of the Scriptures and treated in-depth. In this volume 1, Repentance from Dead Works, you will learn about the meaning of Biblical repentance and your need for it; sin, its effects, how the Creator views it, and the need to turn from it; the law and its purposes; the Levitical and Melchizedek priesthoods, sacrifices and their meanings and purposes. You will also learn the place of true deliverance in repentance and its relationship with the law. The book defines Repentance, shows the place and functions of Biblical Laws in Repentance, and shows the difference between the Levitical sacrificial laws and the Laws in the first five Books of the Bible. It gives a Biblical example of true repentance, discusses obstacles to true repentance, and shows the need for true deliverance in repentance.

The only path to life (not mere survival) for a human being is the love of God. But what is love? There are many definitions of this short word and even more opinions about its meaning. There are also those who say that there are different types of love. However, Scripture simply states that God is Love and that love comes from God; so why is there such confusion about love? Part I of "Because God Is Love" exposes the passionate and alluring - yet deceptive - reasons behind this confusion of meaning; brings forth the simple truth about love in its human facet; and shows how everything else that has been called "love" is nothing other than a delusion that is akin to idolatry, and as such it is destructive and completely removed from the true love of the Lord our God: The only power that redeems, fulfills and provides meaning to the existence of those who wholeheartedly love Him.

Today, many churches have become personal businesses for inheritance wealth and franchises for theological opportunism, resulting in a weak doctrinal foundation, spiritual retardation, lack of biblical discernment, humanism, deism, doctrines of demons, and worldlinessthe conspicuous display of wealth. Whole denominations, even many where the gospel was once proclaimed clearly, have been left spiritually bankrupt because doctrines of demons and unbeliefs were tolerated. So-called men of God have become fame-obsessed celebrities, eager to please their congregations with human wisdom. There is a spirit behind every teaching. Why do people listen to irresponsible teaching that is spawned by seductive spirits? How to Test the Spirits and Understanding Seducing Spirits and Doctrines of Demons may be taken as a testament to that effect. This is clearly a last days occurrence within the church. It is every believers solemn duty to resist every attack on the truth by the master of the clever twist of the gospel, the Adversary; to abhor the very thought of falsehood; and to test the spirits to see whether they are from God.

“God Is” means He exists. “God is incorporeal having no material existence, no body or form. He is omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful), and omnipresent (in all places at once).” This work establishes the basic premise that “God Is” through showing how His plans were revealed through the scriptures thousands of years before the actual events happen. It asks questions you may not have considered and provides answers. The reader will be able to see the reality of the existence of God working in the world we live in through the demonstration and fulfillment of His Word.

The Bible is Gods inspired revelation to His people, and it is His enduring truth. Yet it can also be difficult for us to sometimes recognize how Gods revealed truths are relevant for us todayand even for all time. Especially when it comes to Old Testament scriptures, how can we focus our faithand apply what we know today in the modern worldand discover the relevance and truth of these scriptures in a personal way? In Genesis: A Modern-Day Commentary, author Judith Folse presents the story of Genesis as the first part of the whole story of Gods plan of redemption for humankind, but she relates the subject matter of Genesis to New Testament themes that focus on the relationship between God and humanity. In an easy-to-read style, this commentary illuminates the ancient problems of sin and violence that still affect us today, and it is intended for people of all faiths with a reverence for the Old Testament. No matter your level of familiarity with the book of Genesis, approaching it in a new way will likewise renew your understanding of how timeless and relevant the Word of God is today. By identifying your common connection to the rest of humanity through biblical illustrations, you will not only recognize the ancient themes relevant to modern-day issues of world peace and human violenceyou will also discover or rediscover the truth of Gods revealed, eternal words.

The Bible teaches us to seek God diligently. The Bible also teaches that we reap what we sow; in other words, what we work for with effort, we will justly receive. Time is of great essence. It takes time to truly understand the mysteries of life. As a mature adult, time well spent is our reward in life. We once were blind, but now we see. When we are very young, we do not see the reality of life. It takes time. The author, Charles Traina, has spent years and countless hours studying the scriptures. You may read what he has found in just a few hours, but understanding still takes time. Will you take the time before your time runs out? Once you close your eyes in your eternal slumber, your time is of no use. Read My Study; it then will become your study. It may encourage you to study scripture, and your own time will be well spent. Praise be to God.

Scripture is an amazing word: this is a word that both acts at the heart of a person’s life and begets a testimony “like” itself. The more a person looks into the depths of this “word”, the clearer it is that there is both real human authorship and an incredibly subtle presence of the “divine Author”. There are not, however, two words; but one mysteriously enriched word of God: a word at once ancient and ever open to the challenges of contemporary questions and concerns. Secondly, if dialogue is a characteristic of God, Scripture “expresses” this through the multitude of voices through which it is written. So, whether it is a matter of listening to this word in the Church, drawing on foundational studies on the biblical text, or researching questions in embryology, philosophy, theology, marriage and ecumenism, a person is drawn into an amazingly fertile divine-human dialogue. Indeed, in the end, it is impossible to express the number of human beings who are in this dialogue; and, in that very impossibility, there is a glimpse of the mystery of God calling us to a dynamic communion. Finally, given the great challenge of thinking that a person is so immersed in a “subjectivism” that drowns inter-personal dialogue, the word of God comes to strengthen the search for truth and facilitates the investigations that transcend individuals, groups, nations, cultures and times. For Scripture cannot be more centred in a time, a place, a people; it cannot be more “subjective” in its account of an immense variety of human experience. But then, the very historical consistency of the fact that this heritage of utterly human experience has been able to “speak” to mankind as a whole, at any time, in any place, in any culture, is an incredibly convincing testimony that this is a unique word: a word that both arises out of a profound anthropology of man and can destroy isolation and effect communion. This book, then, takes up these questions, both intensely personal and profoundly contemporary, and lets the words “Listen Israel” resound throughout its pages.

Here are amazing insights showing reincarnation to be deeply and powerfully revealed in the Bible's most fundamental aspects. How and why have these insights escaped attention for so long? At last, they are uncovered here by a confluence of conventional Bible study and the epochal spiritual discoveries of Rudolf Steiner. With particular emphasis on the organic provisions of the Old Testament, Smith shows both what the assumptions of the Master's hearers were and how the New Testament confirms the ancient heritage. Arising from the fullness of the canon is an exciting story of the long journey of humanity and every human soul, each a "beloved sheep" whom the Creator is unwilling to lose. Combining a lifetime of biblical study and teaching, fifteen years investigating and contemplating Rudolf Steiner's vast works, and almost three decades of applying the analytical skill required in an intense law practice, Smith has produced a potential classic the serious Bible student can ill afford to ignore.

The author of this dissertation toes the line of many African theologians who have, since the 70s and 80s, tried to develop a postcolonial and specific African theology. The objective of such studies has been the development of a Bible-hermeneutics which evolves out of the language and culture of the given African people. This work, therefore, can be considered to be a successful and important contribution to the self-emancipating African theology of our time, with a focus on the views of the Igalas of Nigeria.

Throughout the ages, various celestial and non-celestial phenomena have featured images portraying the nearness of the end of days or, in the New Testament, the Parousiawhich means the appearance of the second coming of Jesus. Many of these images and concepts are often misunderstood or misapplied. A primary purpose of this book is to correct the errant concepts believed to be true by many people because incorrect doctrine and teaching can have disastrous results. Many people today believe we are living in tumultuous times. However, to set or fix a precise date for the return of Jesus is unbiblical. This book will present a completely different view than what is commonly believed about the end times. By blending the concepts of many schools of thought and outright challenging others, the goal of this book is to help people understand the variety of views on the topic. In short, this book should be read first and then compared with what others are teaching and saying.

The Reconciliation of Theology and Social Work seeks to add to the discussion between Christian theology and social work. William C. White's goal is to offer a practical approach and theoretical framework for service grounded in the spiritual wisdom of God's word. As he writes, "There is an extremely rich background that exists between theology and social work." In a time when the winds of change have impacted the faith community, White thinks it is best to utilize the resources within the healing community to inform his theory of social work practice. White suggests, "The lack of cultural competence by social workers and Christians can impact vulnerable populations negatively and increase disparities in providing services." Such a bold integration of faith and social work practice will find critics among those who wish to keep the two emerging disciplines apart. However, for those who desire to restore the friendly relations between the faith community and social services, The Reconciliation of Theology and Social Work will prove both challenging and yet possible.
