Healthy Faith and the Coronavirus, Luke Cawley and Kristi Mair (eds)
This collection is a comprehensive evangelical response to the Coronavirus pandemic. It is a book that Christians should buy, read for themselves, and then circulate around their friends.
An Introduction to the Greek New Testament, Dirk Jongkind
Worries about the reliability of the text can be a distraction from the primary calling of the studentof the Greek New Testament tounderstand, believe, and obey the New Testament’s message. Reading Jongkind’s book will enable those beginning the study of the Greek text to set this distraction aside.
On Death, Timothy Keller
Keller’s clear and succinct volume will help Christians to think about death in a way that is both faithful to Scripture and relevant to our culture. This is a book, to read, to share and to give away. Highly recommended.
The Ten Commandments: A Guide to the Perfect Law of Liberty, Peter Leithart
This is a significant new commentary on the Ten Commandments that will be of value both to ministers and to lay Christians as well. Buy, read, and learn!
Living in Union with Christ: Paul's Gospel and Christian Moral Identity, Grant Macaskill
For those who already have a working knowledge of the writings of Paul and are comfortable with academic studies this is a book that has a huge amount to offer. It is not just a plea for a better reading of Paul, but a full on challenge to the unexamined idolatry that puts us rather than Christ at the centre of our lives.
