The Bible claims to be the direct revelation of our Creator. So if the biblical record is true, it is a primary means by which the God of the universe has revealed Himself to mankind. However, if it can be proved false, then the God of whom it speaks is simply one more pretender in the assembly of gods that man has created. In "Is the Bible Reliable?" Dr. Stephen Meyer challenges you to examine the historical and archaeological evidence to determine for yourself the veracity and accuracy of biblical Scripture. Is the Bible true? You decide. Includes group discussion questions, creative exercises to help participants gain a greater understanding, and sidebars with background information that expand on the DVD content. This discussion guide is to be used in conjunction with the TrueU: "Is the Bible Reliable?" DVDs.

Much of the Old Testament seems strange to contemporary readers.
However, as we begin to understand how ancient people viewed the
world, the Old Testament becomes more clearly a book that stands
within its ancient context as it also speaks against it. John
Walton provides here a thoughtful introduction to the conceptual
world of the ancient Near East.
Based on the King James Version of 1611, this is the revision of the Standard version of 1901. Includes a summary of each of the books.
The Word of God is alive--dynamic and powerful. Studying God's Word can transform your life. It knits you together with others. Revitalizes your relationships. Allows you to meet Christ for the first time as well as again and again. Studying the Bible can also be dry, dull--and seem to have little connection with your daily life. You've probably experienced group Bible study meetings in which the discussion is merely a chain of platitudes and people never say what they think or address the real questions they have about faith and life. Further, some approaches to Bible study require stacks of reference books, cross-referencing and three versions of the Bible. Other approaches ask you to fill in blanks like an elementary school child. What you need is a Bible study method that will bring Scripture to life in your personal study and in your group studies. In this book Bob Grahmann, a national and international Bible study teacher, unfolds a long-appreciated method of inductive Bible study which has been updated to meet the needs of today's generation. With both biblical expertise and cultural awareness he lays out the method clearly. With exercises to put the method into practice, this is a book that will benefit you individually as well as in your next group Bible study. It is time for your Bible study methods to be transformed. And it is time for you to allow the Bible to transform you. That's whatTransforming Bible Study is all about!

anxiety, this book includes a Bible study to help you discover what
God says about contentment and ways to apply it to your daily life.

In fact, God is the source of true wisdom which has far more to it than a mixture of common sense and life experience. Discover together how God's way offers peace, contentment, and blessing while guarding us from foolish pitfalls. Find wisdom for full living even as we engage with a drag-down world.
The Bible has always been an integral part of American political culture. Yet in the years before the Civil War, it was the Old Testament, not the New Testament, that pervaded political rhetoric. From Revolutionary times to about 1830, numerous American politicians, commentators, ministers, and laymen depicted their young nation as a new, God-chosen Israel and relied on the Old Testament for political guidance. In this original book, historian Eran Shalev closely examines how this powerful predilection for Old Testament narratives and rhetoric in early America shaped a wide range of debates and cultural discussions - from republican ideology, constitutional interpretation, southern slavery, and more generally the meaning of American nationalism to speculations on the origins of American Indians and to the emergence of Mormonism. Shalev argues that the effort to shape the United States as a biblical nation reflected conflicting attitudes within the culture - proudly boastful on the one hand, but uncertain about its abilities and ultimate destiny on the other. With great nuance, American Zion explores for the first time the meaning and lasting effects of the idea of the United States as a new Israel, and sheds new light on our understanding of the nation's origins and culture during the founding and antebellum decades.

Who was he? Where did he come from? What were his message and purpose? See for yourself what happened in his life, who followed him, who opposed him, and why.

The Bible is the story of God's interaction with his creation. It is a story that occurs over time, in many places, and through many events. It's often easy to lose sight of the way in which God's story fits together when our primary way of looking at the Bible is a bit here and a bit there.The four-color "Chronological Life Application Study Bible" combines the proven resources of the "Life Application Study Bible" with a chronological format and several brand-new resources. The Bible is arranged in 10 chronological sections, which helps the reader to see how the various pieces of the Bible fit together. Section intros and timelines set the stage for the passages in each section. Archaeological notes and photographs help to bring God's story to life in a whole new way. And of course, the Life Application resources answer the all-important question--"so what?"Now available in the King James Version. (Also available in the New Living Translation.)
Merit Award, 2007 World Guild Christian Living Book Praying is an action. Praying is an action that is of the essence of Christian existence. It involves our beliefs, emotions, values, hopes and fears, certainties and uncertainties, knowledge and ignorance. As J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom explain, this book "is a heart-to-heart affair, in which two Christians who try to pray and wish they prayed better share thoughts about what they are doing with people whom they envisage as being like themselves. . . . Our aim is not just to clarify Christian understanding but to foster Christian living. In real praying, head, heart and hands go together." With wisdom, humility and sincerity the authors lead us through different moods of praying, including brooding, praising, asking, complaining and hanging on. InPraying the authors offer hope for those of us who daydream when we try to listen to God and stumble when we try to speak. Yet they don't just teach us about prayer; they challenge and inspire us to do it by pointing us to a clearer realization of the reality of God and his character. Let Packer and Nystrom come alongside you to encourage and guide your active praying to our powerful God, and let him move your praying through mere duty to delight.
