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

How can we find more enjoyment in studying the Bible? How can we make our study periods more productive? What circumstances contribute to effective personal study? How can we derive real benefit and pleasure from our Bible reading? From what activities can time be bought out for reading and studying the Bible? Why should we watch our spiritual feeding habits? What benefits come from reading and studying the Scriptures? There is a great and constantly growing interest in the study of the English Bible in these days. However, very much of the so-called study of the English Bible is unintelligent and not fitted to produce the most satisfactory results. The authors of this book already have a book entitled “HOW TO STUDY: Study the Bible for the Greatest Profit,” but that book is intended for those who are willing to buy out the time to put into thorough Bible study. The present book is intended, first of all, to impress men and women with the Importance and Value of Bible Study; secondly, to show busy men and women how to get the most out of their Bible Study; thirdly, to set forth the fundamental principles of correct Biblical Interpretation.

Hundreds of millions accept the Bible as the God-breathed (inspired), fully inerrant Word of God. They struggle in today's world of the atheist, agnostic, and skeptic, to convince others that we have a Creator, and he has inspired a written book, to give direction to imperfect man. Why has there been such a struggle to convince the modern man? Unlike centuries past, many unbelievers today have never read the Bible. Thus, they only have a hazy understanding of what is to be found within its pages, hearing mostly conjecture and innuendo about its content. The modern mind may wonder . . . (1) Why should I read a book that is dated to 2,000 - 3,500 years ago, which has nothing to do with the modern high-tech world that is at the center of my life? (2) What does such an ancient book offer that cannot be found in any modern-day self-help book, or on the Internet? (3) Why am I to believe that the Bible is the Word of God, some of those who have claimed to follow it, have spilled more blood than any military force? (4) Has not the modern historian and scientist proven much of the Bible to be full of historical, geographical and scientific errors? (5) Is the Bible not full of myths and legends, penned by authors that were able to deceive the uneducated people of the past? These questions and hundreds of others are asked on the internet, in magazines, books, movies, TV, as well as newspapers every day. Herein lies your opportunity to get the answers.

THE TEXT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT was copied and recopied by hand for 1,500 years. Regardless of those scribes who had worked very hard to be faithful in their copying, errors crept into the text. How can we be confident that what we have today is the Word of God? Wilkins and Andrews offer the reader an account of the copying by hand and transmission of the Greek New Testament. They present a comprehensive survey of the manuscript history from the penning of the 27 New Testament books to the current critical texts. What did the ancient books look like and how were documents written? How were the New Testament books published? Who would use secretaries? Why was it so hard to be a secretary in the first century? How was such work done? What do we know about the early Christian copyists? What were the scribal habits and tendencies? Is it possible to establish the original text of the New Testament? How do paleographers date the ancient manuscripts? How has the Greek New Testament text come down to us? How did textual variations and manuscript families arise? Just how many textual variants are there and how are they to be counted? What guarantee do we have as to the reliability of the Greek text? What are the principles and rules of textual criticism and how are they to be applied, so that we can get back the original reading? What are the collation and classification of manuscripts? What is the Coherence-Based Genealogical Method (CBGM) and can it be trusted? How reliable are our master (critical) Greek texts of the New Testament (WH/NA28/UBS5)? Why can we be confident that the literal translations (ASV / RSV / NASB / UASV) are providing for its readers the faithful Word of God? Their work on THE TEXT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT is carried out with an apologetical mindset, to assist Christians in their defense of God's Word.

CALVINISM VS. ARMINIANISM goes back to the early seventeenth century with a Christian theological debate between the followers of John Calvin and Jacobus Arminius and continues today among some Protestants, particularly evangelicals. The debate is centered around soteriology, that is, the study of salvation, and includes disputes about total depravity, predestination, and atonement. While the debate has developed its Calvinist–Arminian form in the 17th century, the issues that are fundamental to the debate have been discussed in Christianity in some fashion since the days of Augustine of Hippo's disputes with the Pelagians in the fifth century. CALVINISM VS. ARMINIANISM is taking a different approach in that the issues will be discussed as The Bible Answers being that it is the centerpiece.

There exists a general lack of biblical understanding for the idea of “testing” that emerges in the Old Testament as a significant theological theme. The faithful from both Old Testament and New Testament times are tested for their faith. This kind of experience often involves enduring hardship and difficult times. While often confused with the biblical idea of “temptation,” the biblical idea of testing stems from a metallurgical background and carries a unique covenantal function. Testing will be at the center of how God responds to the rebellion of his people and reveals God’s primary concern for the faith of his saints. Our study will first focus on the language of testing and explore the semantic range for the idea of testing that draws from both the biblical context, as well as the world of the ancient Near East. This study will then focus on the often overlooked Joseph narrative and its unique contribution to the theology of testing that is presented by the rest of the Pentateuch. Finally, the remainder of the biblical texts will be investigated on the theme of testing. The last chapter will appreciate the fact that God tests His sons—Adam, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Job, Israel and even Christ. It is through the experience of God’s tested sons that believers are invited to more fully and deeply understand their own experience of testing.

Equipped to Tell the Next Generation bridges the gap between knowing and sharing our faith in Jesus by revealing areas of our beliefs and practices which have been syncretized with twenty-first-century American culture: relative truth, consumerism, pleasure, an independent spirit, the victim mentality, and the culture of doubt. These go to the heart of who we are and keep Christians from telling people about Jesus in winsome ways. This book provides the solution: recover the holiness of God, his ultimate characteristic, which holds all his characteristics in perfect unity. Rather than legalism, genuine holiness is the highest beauty which produces wholeness because it balances holy love, holy righteousness, repentance of sin, peace, and respect for all people and all of God’s creation. When we meet a holy God, we want to worship and to serve him because the beauty of holiness touches the very essence of our being. It becomes our greatest desire to please him because of the deep love we find there, a holy love unlike what the world offers. This book will take you on a journey to recover the things compromised to culture and will equip you to tell the next generation about Jesus.

We look at our television, computers, tablets, cell phones, watching in horror as terrorist are beheading little children, dictators slaughtering tens of thousands of their own people, burying them in mass graves. We read in newspapers and on blogs of child slavery that affects millions of children, school shootings, diseases that claim tens of millions through horrific deaths. Every day a friend is telling us crimes such as murder and rape that have taken place. Then, we think of historical persons like Hitler who killed over six millions Jewish persons, as well as hundreds of thousands of Christians, we can only ask but one question. IF GOD IS GOOD, Why Does God Allow Suffering? Are we not tired of the books on this subject offering philosophical arguments, theological ramblings that would take a Ph.D. to understand them? Many have found no satisfactory answer. Therefore, they have lost faith in God. Andrews offers his readers very straightforward, biblically accurate explanations for these difficult questions. Why does God allow suffering, why is life so unfair? Does God step in and solve every problem because we are faithful? Why do we see some Christian leaders saying God miraculously saved some young girl from cancer while hundreds of thousands of others are left to die? Does God provide absolutes or guarantees in this age of imperfect humanity? Does Satan the Devil really exist? How are we to understand divine foreknowledge and human freedom? If any have had such questions, without a doubt, they will be very interested in the Bible’s answers to these and far more in this easy to read publication.

Sir William Mitchell Ramsay was a British archaeologist and New Testament scholar. Initially, he was one of the biggest Bible critics of his day. However, after decades of research, by his death in 1939, he had become the foremost authority of his day on the history of Asia Minor and a leading scholar in the study of the New Testament, as well as the advocate for the trustworthiness of the New Testament. There were many Bible critics of the early 19th century like there are today, who questioned Luke’s accuracy as a historian. Furthermore, they maintained that the history in Acts was merely invented in the middle of the second century A.D. The author of this book, the British archaeologist and Bible scholar Sir William Mitchell Ramsay was one who believed these things. But after a lengthy investigation of the names and places mentioned by Luke, he declared: “It was gradually borne in upon me that in various details the narrative showed marvelous truth.” This classic defense of the book of Acts was, again, written by a scholar whose initial motivation was to disprove Luke's authorship. After many years of research into the internal evidence of Luke’s books, he became one of the greatest advocates for the authenticity and accuracy of Luke's accounts. We have taken some liberties with Ramsay’s book in that we tweaked the title. We updated his archaic English and changed the UK English to US English. We have added many Bible background chapters and an appendix that we now consider this book a 12th edition. I am most certain that Ramsay would not mind the enhancements that we have made that have made a great book and even better book that can grow the faith of its readers.

This book addresses none of these areas, but, instead, returns to first principles to examine the biblical case for dispensationalism. It introduces the reader to the wonder of God's plan for the ages and seeks to demonstrate how an understanding of the dispensations allows us to comprehend more of God's word and more of his mighty ways.

How does Christian formation happen and what are its moral implications? This book brings into conversation three disciplines that are crucial for Christian formation--social science, biblical studies/hermeneutics, and ethics--to present a cohesive, dynamic vision of human wholeness and spiritual holiness. The authors weave together insights from their respective fields to address the relationship between personal and communal formation, moral development, and the interpretation of Scripture. Revealing the process as well as the fruits of interdisciplinary dialogue, this book offers a fresh approach to understanding human formation. The final chapter, a case study on immigration, demonstrates the authors' integrative method.

There are four major views of salvation among Bible scholars. Two of them are treated herein, the Calvinist view and the Arminian View. What Andrews offers his reader is the biblical view of salvation. Chapter 5 Explaining Salvation will be a full chapter dealing with the doctrine of salvation itself. However, several other chapters will cover original language words that explain the salvation doctrine. We have Chapter 1 Explaining Atonement, as well as Chapter 2 Explaining Ransom, in addition to Chapter 3 Explaining Reconciliation, along with Chapter 4 Explaining Sanctification. All five chapters will cover some deep theological subject matter, as well as Hebrew and Greek terms, but are written in an easy to understand manner. EXPLAINING THE DOCTRINE OF SALVATION allows all readers, regardless of one’s level of learning to plunge deeper into God’s promise of salvation, as Andrews explains the biblical view.

Every hour of every day proves that inadequate solutions for social, political, and personal crises flamed by multifaceted hate singes everyone. Peace cannot be a compromise. Peace visits, and like great escape artists, it vanishes, leaving in its place bewilderment and unquenchable desire for more. Peacelessness is profitable. Industry and governments grow in response to peacelessness. Corporations and cousins fight for a piece of the pie. Blessed must be the peacemakers, they experience only temporary success yet their efforts continue in hope as evidence of things not seen. Peace is the strong cord running through history. Peace ties together every chapter of every book of the Bible. Peace is the subject of every sermon and hymn and is the cause of every war. Peace is so powerful even God works under its influence. Who understands that? Peace will bring this world to its end.
