Many Christians are unable to give the names, or many details, of Jesus’ twelve disciples and yet we can learn many lessons from their lives. Each of them had his own personality but Jesus was able to change and use them in the service of the Kingdom of God. They had faults like we do. They were a mixed bunch of people, each with their own gifts and struggles. God calls all sorts of people, and we cannot forget that Jesus was selecting men for a leadership role in the early church. We can use the example of the apostles to inspire and teach us. This is a tremendously useful book that will have a place on many a minister’s bookshelf. From Andrew through to Judas, Ian Fleck’s survey is detailed but accessible and never dry. This is a timely book, coming at a time when many in the church are speaking of the need for discipleship, yet, all too often, little or nothing is ever said of the first disciples. This book opens up their lives to us. Rev. Dr. Paul Bailie Chief Executive, Mission Africa (Working in Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Chad and Kenya) Inspired by material concerning the Twelve disciples which he has assembled from the Four Gospels, and in interaction with other Scripture texts and some ancient traditions, Ian Fleck in this series of meditations has succeeded in deriving, from the lives of Jesus’ choses followers, challenging, inspirational and practical lessons for readers to apply in discipleship of Christ today.

Christ the King unfolds the many ways in which the Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as not only King of the Jews, but the one to whom “all authority in heaven and earth” has been given. Brief meditations on virtually every verse in Matthew portray Jesus as both God and man, and as teacher, healer, and liberator from demons, sin, and death. Drawing almost entirely on Matthew’s Gospel for his interpretation of each passage, the author also shows how Christ calls His people to follow Him faithfully, regardless of the cost.

In His Footsteps

From the lengthy research and pen of two lawyers, a judge and a former law professor, this book, In His Footsteps: The Early Followers of Jesus, is a guide to understanding the early Christian movement through a study of the lives and ministries of the first believers, most of whom had met with the risen Jesus and thus knew, without doubt, that Jesus was the Christ and Savior of the world. The book cites accounts from Eusebius, a third-century Greek Christian historian, who also referenced testimony from first-century Christians about the almost unbelievable courage of the early followers of Jesus, who willingly and fearlessly, despite tremendous persecution and sufferings, brought to an otherwise lost world an assurance of life eternal for all believers. The book also refers to the fulfillment of many of the biblical prophecies, the principal ones being the restoration of the nation of Israel and the return of many Jewish people to their homeland. This book is an indispensable resource for all persons, as the tremendous sacrifices of the first believers should never be forgotten.

The Modern Version Incursion

I wrote The Modern Version Incursion because there is a need in the church for Christians to see plainly that the modern versions of the Bible are counterfeits. God wrote one Bible, not three hundred! The Bible tells us plainly that God's word is forever settled in heaven, as Psalm 119:89 teaches. This means the word of God is established and firm in heaven. The modern versions attack the cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith and especially attack the Lord Jesus Christ. The modern versions are based on the second-century Gnostic beliefs that were prevalent in Alexandria, Egypt. They disbelieved that Jesus was the Son of God and that He was not the incarnation of deity. What is really unhealthy is when the pastor of a church pushes these counterfeits and convinces their congregation that they are the most accurate. I sincerely desire Christians to look at their modern version and then compare it with the King James Bible and ask the question, why is theirs so different? We will look at 747 verses, which should be more than enough to convince even the skeptic. Christians will search out a neighborhood to live in, check out a mutual fund or stock, research a car before they buy; but when it comes to Bibles, they couldn't care less what they use. It shows how Christian commitment is lacking, and the weakness of modern Christianity attests to that fact. If one uses a counterfeit, they will be weak in their walk. Since the 1901 ASV came out, the church has become so weak it needs to be put on life support. When you start making the comparisons in this book, you will see that Christianity has been sold a bill of goods.

"Everyone knows about Noah, Moses, and Paul. But what about Hagar, Michal, and Priscilla, all women who had a direct influence in the story of God's people? The Bible is full of fascinating, powerful, and faithful women, as well as lessons that have unique meaning for women today." "In The Women's Study Bible, respected Bible scholars draw out these often overlooked stories and reveal the lives of women at the time and share lessons for women of today. Separate sidebars cover topics such as midwifery, women disciples, and female images of God. The Women's Study Bible doesn't shy away from the difficult issues, but helps readers to understand them better in both their original context and the modern world." "The New Living Translation of the Bible uses inclusive language for humanity and where it is clear that both male and female are meant to be included." --Book Jacket.

He Saw

This book is an edited version of the doctoral thesis which examines the special nuance of Jesus' act of seeing that is expressed by the verb e?de? in the Gospel of Mark. The Evangelist Mark uses the verb in three occasions. The first is one of baptism of Jesus (1, 11), the second is one of the call of Jesus' disciples (1, 16.19; 2,14) and the third is that of Jesus who sees a great throng and has compassion on them (6,34). This work tries to establish the bond of communion that connects these three events. Jesus' experience of communion with the Father and the Spirit as he sees the heavens being torn open, moves him to share it with a group of disciples as he sees them. He later extends the same communion to a throng of people as he sees them.

Apocalyptic Imagination in the Gospel of Mark

This narrative study uses Mark 3:22–30 as an interpretive lens to show that the Gospel of Mark has a thoroughly apocalyptic outlook. Unlike many narrative studies, this book clarifies Mark’s symbols, metaphors, and themes in view of the socio-religious context in which it was written. Mark’s apocalyptic discourse portrays the Spirit-filled Jesus in a struggle against Satan to free people for a community that does God’s will. This discourse develops throughout the Gospel, functioning to persuade readers that God displays power from weakness, and offering a coherent reading of Mark.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
