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.
Most Christians have experienced the "laundry list" phase of spiritual life, in which praying means giving God an agenda of needs to handle. How do you move to having real conversation with God? How do you hear what God is saying back to you? How can you make your experience of God being with you part of everyday life? In this study guide, Jan Johnson covers the disciplines of prayer and of practicing God's presence. Going deeper in these areas will help you to draw closer to God in everything you do.
If you believe the Bible is no longer relevant, be prepared to change your mind! An outstanding exposition of Hosea, Amos, and Michah--as contemporary as the evening news! What happened in ancient Israel is happening today. And God has plenty to say about it. The Ruin and Restoration of Israel shows how a covenant-keeping God fulfills prophecy, chastens whom He loves, and keeps His promises . . . forever.
Do we ever learn from history? What were the conditions on the Earth that resulted in its destruction except for Noah and his family? What are the conditions on the Earth today? Will history repeat itself in our time? I.D.E. Thomas reveals startling similarities between the past and today; between ancient peoples and modern peoples, signs that point to a return of mysterious beings known in the Bible as "Nephilim." The Omega Conspiracy could well be their final battle.

Over twenty-five years in the making, this much-anticipated commentary promises to be the standard study of Proverbs for years to come. Written by eminent Old Testament scholar Bruce Waltke, this two-volume commentary is unquestionably the most comprehensive work on Proverbs available.
Grounded in the new literary criticism that has so strengthened biblical interpretation of late, Waltkebs commentary on Proverbs demonstrates the profound, ongoing relevance of this Old Testament book for Christian faith and life. A thorough introduction addresses such issues as text and versions, structure, authorship, and theology. The detailed commentary itself explains and elucidates Proverbs as btheological literature.b Waltkebs highly readable style -- evident even in his original translation of the Hebrew text -- makes his scholarly work accessible to teachers, pastors, Bible students, and general readers alike.
While God never reveals the exact moment when He will pour out His wrath, He does reveal for us, in the Bible, the conditions that are sure to bring His judgment upon a nation and its people. Every one of these conditions -- or sins -- was rampant at the time Judah experienced horrible judgment at the hands of its enemies.
What's incredible is that the very conditions that led to Judah's downfall are all present in America today!
You can explore what these conditions are in David Levy's book, When Prophets Speak of Judgment. In this fascinating overview of the Bible books of Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Haggai, you'll discover that the atrocities committed by ancient Judah are strikingly similar to what we read in the headlines of today's newspapers!
When Prophets Speak of Judgment is an encouraging challenge for us to "redeem the time" as we move ever closer to the last days!
This series helps you hear God speaking to you today--lovingly, emphatically, personally. As you study His Word book by book, you'll find: chapter-by-chapter background information; questions and learning experiences that promote exciting and challenging discussions; and activities that reveal how God speaks to the deepest concerns of your heart.
Originally published in 1969 by Dodd, Mead.

The Outpouring is in keeping with a central commitment of The Friends of Israel to view Scripture through the prism of the cultural, historical setting in which it was cast by the Holy Spirit.
John's Gospel, in its treatment of the interaction between the Messiah and Israel's great feasts, gives us a magnificent exposure to this pattern.
The Outpouring will enhance your understanding of how the Lord certified the credentials of our Jewish Messiah among Abraham's seed and in relationship to the great festive commemorations of the Jewish nation.
This radical new translation conveys the early Christian scriptures in the idiom of today. It follows principles of cultural and contextual translation, and returns to the selection of books the the early Church held in highest esteem.
slaweHuis is hoe die Bybelse Boek Eksodus vir Egipte aan ons bekendstel – ’n primitiewe en boonop goddelose kabaal vol afgodery en heerssugtige farao’s wat God uitdaag en waaruit sy mense bevry is. Regtig? Eers as jy agter die stories begin vra, begin jy fyner skakerings raaksien. Is dit toevalling … dat die datering van die uittog uit die “slawehuis” net sin maak as ons dit verbind met die Hiksos se uitsetting uit Egipte (nie bevryding nie)?; dat Dawid en sy ryk so verbasend ooreenstem met die van Egiptiese Toetmoses III?; dat Jesus gekruisig is omdat hy homself “seun van god” genoem het – die titel wat Egiptiese konings hulle aangematig het?; dat Paulus tydens sy verhoor letterlik beskuldig is dat hy ’n Egiptenaar is? Wat is die ware storie? Is dit dalk eerder die Bybel wat stories aandra sonder om die ware verhaal te vertel? Hoe skakel hierdie stories agter die Bybelse grootStorie met feite wat ons kan weet en, belangriker, wat ons mag glo? Is die tyd ryp om nuwe stories vir ’n nuwe tyd te verken? Dit is die soekende vrae van Andre Bouwer in sy debuutbundel, slaweHuis. Die bundel verplaas die leser na ’n wereld toe die vroegste verhale vorm gekry het. Dit is meer as fassinerende inligting en ’n keuse tussen antieke geskrifte en die Bybel. SlaweHuis is eintlik ’n toestand: verslawing aan letterlike interpretasies van stories, soms buite konteks. Daarom is hierdie ’n ingrypende bevryding, soms vreesaanjaend – soos ’n uittog. Dit loop uit op ’n openbaring wat jou asem sal wegslaan, soos om die lank vergete ingang van ’n nuut ontdekte piramied te vind.
