English summary: JACOB: How God Writes a Straight Text on Crooked LinesThe Bible tells of Jacob, mother's boy and warrior of God, refugee and deceiver, lover and family man. He is no saint, and yet he is Israel - not a perfect model but a person on whose devious life lines God writes a straight text. Seen as a literary figure, Jacob's development to become Israel is traced along the biblical narrative. With brief excursions to the question of the historical value of this figure and to its broad reception Jacob is portrayed as a person who is full of life and who tries to master with God's help whatever life offers him. German text. German description: Die Bibel erzahlt von Jakob, Muttersohnchen und Gottesstreiter, Fluechtling und Betrueger, Liebhaber und Familienvater. Er ist kein Heiliger und doch ist gerade er Israel - einer, der nicht das perfekte Vorbild ist, sondern einer wie du und ich, der sich aber gerade darum fuer jeden als Identifikationsfigur anbietet. Als literarische Gestalt betrachtet wird der Werdegang Jakobs zu Israel anhand der biblischen Erzahlung nachgezeichnet. Mit kurzen Seitenblicken auf die Frage nach der Historizitat dieser Gestalt und auf ihre weit gefacherte Wirkung wird Jakob als einer dargestellt, der mitten im Leben steht und das, was das Leben ihm bietet, zu meistern versucht.

Contending for the Faith in the Face of Compromise
It's amazing how even the "littlest" misunderstanding about God's grace can complicate the Christian life. when we lack peace, joy, or victory in our walk with Christ, oftentimes it's because we're not clear on how God's grace works in our lives.
In some cases, the little misunderstandings can lead to more tragic results. It's safe to say that much incorrect Bible teaching and most cults get their start from the same place: an erroneous view of God's grace.
Grace is a word we all hear frequently. We cannot help but sense there is something very special about God's grace. But do we really know what it is? And how it changes our lives?
That's what the book of Galatians is all about. The book of Jude goes a step further and tells the results of those who stray from the gospel of grace. And both are brought together in David Levy's book, Guarding the Gospel of Grace: Contending for the Faith in the Face of Compromise. Don't miss out on the difference that God's grace can make in your life . . . it's nothing less than amazing!
A most helpful book, which succeeds in bridging the gap of twenty centuries to bring the history of the New Testament alive today in a fascinating way.

Don't miss any part of the greatest story ever told . . . with author Bruce Scott's book, The Feasts of Israel: Seasons of the Messiah!
With the grace and insight for which she is known, Marva Dawn shows how the opening pages of the book of Genesis rivet our attention on God, calling us to worship and to praise. The repeated words, phrases, and actions themselves beckon us into a rhythm of worship which touches our very souls. By focusing on God, we become different people--not by trying to perfect a technique or follow a set of rules, but by allowing who God is to form who we are. As a result, our attitudes and actions change toward the world God has created. Our desire for justice swells. Relationships between men and women are transformed. The consequences of not centering on God are tragic for creation and culture. Yet here Dawn helps us see anew the grace He offers to overcome our rebellious and wandering hearts. Join in this celebration of praise for the difference God makes.

English summary: Isaiah ben Amoz, the prophet from Jerusalem living in the last third of the eighth century B.C., is one of the most prominent figures of biblical literature and its reception. But whoever wishes to approach the prophet will first have to turn to the book that carries his name: Yesha'yahu = JHWH saves. This title serves both as name and motto, for this prophetic book is about nothing more important than the God of Israel's will and power to save his people. Through all the vicissitudes of history, from the time of the Assyrian threat (eighth and seventh centuries) through the Babylonian exile (597-539 B.C.) to the restoration and return under Persian rule (539-333 B.C.), God stands by his people. German text. German description: Jesaja ben Amoz, der Jerusalemer Prophet aus dem letzten Drittel des 8. Jahrhunderts v. Chr., gehort zu den grossten Gestalten der biblischen Literatur und ihrer Wirkungsgeschichte. Doch wer zum Propheten will, der ist zuerst auf das Buch verwiesen, das seinen Namen tragt: Yesha'yahu = JHWH rettet. Dieser Name ist Titel und Programm zugleich, denn von nichts Wichtigerem handelt dieses prophetische Buch als vom Rettungswillen und von der Rettungsmacht des Gottes Israels. Durch alle Tiefen der Geschichte hindurch, von der Zeit der assyrischen Bedrohung (8. und 7. Jahrhundert) ueber die babylonische Gefangenschaft (597-539 v. Chr.) bis hin zur Restauration und Rueckkehr unter persischer Herrschaft (539-333 v. Chr.), steht Gott zu seinem Volk.
English summary: In world literature, Job, the righteous man suffering many afflictions, has become a symbol of the mystery of evil. Authors, theologians and philosophers were inspired again and again by this figure to search for answers, and these are as numerous as the readers of the Book of Job. But every one of them pales against what Job had to suffer, against his lament, his accusation and his silence. There is no answer to the problem of theodicy. With great empathy, intelligently and in well-chosen words, Ruediger Lux tells us why this is so. Because Job is more than just a problem He is a man suffering innocently, paradigmatic for the sufferings of his people of Israel in the course of history and the sufferings of all humankind. Through him faith and thought touch upon their limit, which is God. German description: Hiob, der leidende Gerechte, wurde in der Weltliteratur zum Symbol fuer das Ratsel des Bosen. Literaten, Theologen und Philosophen haben sich von dieser Gestalt immer wieder anregen lassen und nach Antworten gesucht. Diese sind so zahlreich wie die Leser des Buches. Jedoch bleibt jede hinter dem, was Hiob erdulden musste, hinter seiner Klage, seiner Anklage und seinem Schweigen zurueck. Eine Antwort auf das Theodizeeproblem gibt es nicht. Einfuehlsam, klug und in feiner Sprachform sagt Ruediger Lux, warum. Weil Hiob mehr ist als ein Problem Er ist ein unschuldig leidender Mensch, einer, der paradigmatisch fuer die Leiden seines Volkes Israel in der Geschichte sowie die Leiden aller Menschen steht. Mit ihm ruehren der Glaube und das Denken an ihre Grenze, an Gott.
The subject of women in the church is both important and controversial--John MacArthur is not afraid of either. In this revised work, MacArthur examines what the Bible teaches in I Timothy 2:9-15.

"Die Mysterien der Schopfung" bietet einen ganz neuen und frischen Blick auf die Schopfungsgeschichte, wie sie in der Genesis des Alten Testaments auffgezeichnet ist. Dr. Rocco Errico arbeitet hierzu mit seiner eigenen Ubersetzung des Bibeltexts aus dem aramaischen Peschitta-Manuskript. Dieses ist durch seine Unverfalschtheit und seine Direktheit der Sprache ein einzigartiges Dokument. Die fruhe mesopotamische Welt mit ihrer alten nahostlichen Kultur, ihrer Gotterwelt und ihren mystischen Vorstellungen ist der Hintergrund fur die biblische Schopfungsgeschichte. Von dieser alten Welt eine Vorstellung zu bekommen ist die Voraussetzung dafur, diesen Schopfungsmythos besser begreifen zu konnen. Dieses Buch ist kein Vers-fur-Vers-Kommentar zu Genesis 1 und es beabsichtigt keine religios-dogmatische Annaherung an den Text. Auch will Dr. Errico kein bestimmtes konfessionelles Glaubenssystem vertreten. Er will vielmehr helfen aufzuklaren, was in der Schopfungsgeschichte bis heute falsch verstanden wird. Dazu prasentiert der Autor nicht nur Erkenntnisse aus der Bibelforschung, sondern auch aktuelles Wissen aus der Quantenphysik, um seinen eigenen einfachen und inspirierenden Zugang zu den historischen Fakten zu eroffnen.
Winner of a Chicago Book Clinic 2004 Design Award A Fragile Stone explores the dynamic life of the apostle Peter, revisiting well-known passages and revealing unexpected insights. Author Michael Card sketches out Peter's life, showing how the impetuous fisherman of the Gospels was transformed into the pivotal leader of the early church. "The ultimate reason for getting to know Peter," Card explains, "is so together we might better know Jesus. For the story of Peter is the story of Jesus. Perhaps, if you and I do our best, the same will be said of us someday." Peter's life serves as a model for Christian discipleship, offering hope that we likewise can be changed as Jesus calls us to follow him.
