Why the Church Needs Bioethics: A Guide to Wise Engagement with Life's Challenges
Editor: John F.Kilner
Publisher: Zondervan
Price: RM69.10
In a world where incredible medical technologies are possible ... does 'can do' mean 'should do'?
Why the Church Needs Bioethics helps you understand and constructively engage bioethical challenges with the resources of Christian wisdom and ministry. Three rich and true-to-life case studies illustrate the urgency of such bioethical issues as reproductive and genetic technologies, abortion, forgoing treatment, assisted suicide, stem cell research, and human enhancement technologies. Leading Christian voices bring biblical and theological perspective to bear on the incredible medical technologies available today; mobilize useful insights from health care, law, and business; and demonstrate the powerful ways the church can make a difference through counseling, pastoral care, intercultural ministry, preaching, and education. This book equips students, church and lay leaders, and people in health-related fields with the knowledge to make faithful bioethical decisions and to help foster a world where human beings are shown respect as people created in the image of God. Contributors to Why the Church Needs Bioethics include leading Bible and theology scholars, such as D. A. Carson and Kevin Vanhoozer; leaders in the areas of preaching (Greg Scharf) and ethics (Scott Rae); and 15 other experts in the fields of biblical-theological studies, ministry, communication, business, law, healthcare, and bioethics.

Jacob's Ladder: On Angels
Author: Sergius Bulgakov
Publisher: Eerdmans
Price: RM64.00
Few of Sergius Bulgakov’s professional writings achieve the lyrical heights of Jacob’s Ladder. In it he discusses the doctrine of angels and their importance for contemporary humanity.

Luke (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament)
Author: David E. Garland
Publisher: Zondervan
Price: RM128.00
Luke is the fifth release in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series---the only commentary series with a graphical display, theology in application section and identification of the main idea for each section. Luke sought to assure believers about the truth of the gospel (1:4) and to advance their understanding of God's ways in the world as revealed in Christ's ministry, death, and resurrection. Luke wrote as a historian, theologian, and pastor, and Garland's commentary strives to follow suit in assisting those who will preach and teach the text and those who seek to understand it better. The commentary presents a translation through a diagram that helps visualize the flow of thought, provides a summary of the central message of the passages, reveals how they function within the gospel, and offers an exegetical outline and verse-by-verse commentary that takes notice of Jewish and Greco-Roman background evidence that sheds light on the text. Christians interpret the Bible to make sense of their lived experience, and the commentary highlights theological emphases of each passage and applies them to the everyday struggles of faith and practice.

Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author's message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The ZECNT series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor.

Through the use of graphic representations of translations, succinct summaries of main ideas, exegetical outlines and other features, Arnold present Paul's epistle to the Ephesians with precision and accuracy. Because of this series' focus on the textual structure of the scriptures, readers will better understand the literary elements of Ephesians, comprehend the author's revolutionary goals, and ultimately discovering their vital claims upon the church today.

The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach
Author : Michael R.Licona
Publisher : IVP
Price : RM97.50
The question of the historicity of Jesus' resurrection has been repeatedly probed, investigated and debated. And the results have varied widely. Perhaps some now regard this issue as the burned-over district of New Testament scholarship. Could there be any new and promising approach to this problem? Yes, answers Michael Licona. And he convincingly points us to a significant deficiency in approaching this question: our historiographical orientation and practice. So he opens this study with an extensive consideration of historiography and the particular problem of investigating claims of miracles. This alone is a valuable contribution. But then Licona carefully applies his principles and methods to the question of Jesus' resurrection. In addition to determining and working from the most reliable sources and bedrock historical evidence, Licona critically weighs other prominent hypotheses. His own argument is a challenging and closely argued case for the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus, the Christ. Any future approaches to dealing with this "prize puzzle" of New Testament study will need to be routed through The Resurrection of Jesus.

Nearly 200 in-depth and jargon-free articles, contributed by over 90 evangelical scholars, summarize Jesus and Gospel studies. Ranging from 500 to 10,000 words, the articles cover many topics not even found in multi-volume Bible encyclopedias; cross-references and extensive bibliographies add to their usefulness.

The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative
Author: Christopher J.H. Wright
Publisher: Inter-varsity Press / 2006 / Hardcover
Price: RM 112.00

Most Christians would agree that the Bible provides a basis for mission. But Christopher Wright boldly maintains that mission is bigger than that--there is in fact a missional basis for the Bible! The entire Bible is generated by and is all about God's mission.In order to understand the Bible, we need a missional hermeneutic of the Bible, an interpretive perspective that is in tune with this great missional theme. We need to see the "big picture" of God's mission and how the familiar bits and pieces fit into the grand narrative of Scripture.
Beginning with the Old Testament and the groundwork it lays for understanding who God is, what he has called his people to be and do, and how the nations fit into God's mission, Wright gives us a new hermeneutical perspective on Scripture. This new perspective provides a solid and expansive basis for holistic mission. Wright emphasizes throughout a holistic mission as the proper shape of Christian mission. God's mission is to reclaim the world--and that includes the created order--and God's people have a designated role to play in that mission.

Introduction to the New Testament Second Edition
Author: D.A. Carson, Douglas J. Moo
Publisher: Zondervan / 2005 / Hardcover
Price: RM 101.25

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on "special introduction" that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and the like. This approach stands in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels; topics the authors don't minimize, but instead think are better given extended treatment in exegesis courses. By refocusing on the essentials, this introduction ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood within historical settings. For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a substantial summary of that book's content, discuss the book's theological contribution to the overall canon, and give an account of current studies on that book, including recent literary and social-science approaches to interpretation. This second edition reflects significant revision and expansion from the original such as: a new chapter provides a historical survey examining Bible study method through the ages, the chapter on Paul has been expanded to include an analysis of debates on the "new perspective", and the discussion of New Testament epistles has been expanded to form a new chapter.

This intermediate introduction includes callouts, charts, and graphs, and is written with an eye on understanding the nature of Old Testament historiography, and three key issues: historical background, literary analysis, and theological message.

The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic Summary [Hardcover]
Author : Fred G.Zaspel
Publisher : Crossway
Price : RM102.40
Presents the first comprehensive, systematic treatment of B. B. Warfield’s theology.
Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield (1851–1921) was undoubtedly one of the greatest Reformed theologians in the history of America. As professor of didactic and polemic theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, he wrote extensively in defense of fundamental Christian doctrines. While his writing touched on the full spectrum of theological topics, it was spread over hundreds of periodicals, books, and pamphlets, and a significant portion has never been published in an accessible form. Warfield stands as a dominant figure on the theological landscape, but few have a comprehensive grasp of his theology, largely because of the difficulty of tracing his ideas through numerous sources.
Fred G. Zaspel has spent many years studying Warfield’s published and unpublished writing, and presents here a concise and coherent systematic theology per B. B. Warfield. For the first time ever, readers can, in one volume, access the content of this great theologian’s academic, sermonic, and devotional works. Scholars, pastors, and students will profit from the unique combination of comprehensive detail and devotional warmth in this systematic theology.

He reveals what it would have meant for its first hearers and what it means for readers today. / O’Brien views the epistle as a “word of exhortation” — a homily or sermon that skillfully interweaves exposition and exhortation, encouraging faithful perseverance in the light of the superlative final word God has spoken in Christ. / “It would be difficult to find a more helpful guide than Peter O’Brien or a guide better endowed with his combination of competence and genial wisdom.” D. A. Carson (from the preface)

Christian Theology, Second Edition
Author: Millard J. Erickson
Price: RM

The first edition of Erickson's Christian Theology was the standard for conservative evangelical systematic theology. Erickson has updated Christian Theology based on the feedback from theology students and professors. Erickson also added a chapter on postmodernism, and has included chapter objectives, summaries, and study questions.

Erickson writes from a conservative, evangelical, Baptist perspective. He is reformed, but not ardently Calvinistic. Christian Theology is a technical/semi-technical work, requiring knowledge of Hebrew and Greek (Erickson has added Greek transliteration to go along with the existing Hebrew transliteration). It is designed for use in seminaries, but is accessible to educated lay-readers as well. Scriptural quotations are generally from the New International Version, though Erickson defers to the original languages.
At over 1300 pages, Christian Theology offers incredible depth of detail. Its meticulous analysis of the major issues in theology will prove helpful to all theology students, and Erickson's chapter summaries and study questions easily lend themselves to the classroom setting. Christian Theology is an indispensable tool for pastors, students and church leaders.

The Indelible Image: The Theological and Ethical Thought of the New Testament, Volume 1: The Individual Witnesses
Author: Ben Witherington III
Publisher: IVP Academic / 2009 / Hardcover
Price: RM

True to his innovative form, Ben Witherington in his book, The Indelible Image has found another creative way to explicate a basic framework for theological study and expression. Seeking to write a Theology of the New Testament (framework), Witherington asks why it is that we try to understand elements of New Testament theology apart from history, ethics, and praxis. They are certainly not unrelated, and indeed feed into the very heart of one another.
Witherington believes that the globally focused New Testament Theology cannot be accomplished without including all of the components (ethics & praxis) that support it (explication). This assumption creates the focus of his New Testament Theology, The Indelible Image Witherington traces his theme throughout all of the New Testament and into the early Christian period, up to canonization. His efforts are an attempt to break from more traditional organizing rubrics, such as God, Christ, or even the Church and illuminate theological richness of the New Testament through its primary (at least in terms of space that is devoted to it) focus, how we behave, and how we show our love.

The Indelible Image, Volume 2 (The Collective Witnesses): The Theological and Ethical Thought World of the New Testament
Author: Ben Witherington III
Publisher: IVP Academic / 2010 / Hardcover
Price: RM 140.00

All too often, argues Ben Witherington, the theology of the New Testament has been divorced from its ethics, leaving as isolated abstractions what are fully integrated, dynamic elements within the New Testament itself. As Witherington stresses, "behavior affects and reinforces or undoes belief."
Having completed commentaries on all of the New Testament books, a remarkable feat in itself, Witherington now offers the second of a two-volume set on the theological and ethical thought world of the New Testament. The first volume looks at the individual witnesses, while the second examines the collective witness.
The New Testament, says Ben Witherington, is "like a smallish choir. All are singing the same cantata, but each has an individual voice and is singing its own parts and notes. If we fail to pay attention to all the voices in the choir, we do not get the entire effect. . . . [If the first volume was] about closely analyzing the sheet music left to us by which each musician's part is delineated, [this second volume attempts] to re-create what it might have sounded like had they ever gotten together and performed their scores to produce a single masterful cantata."
What the New Testament authors have in mind, Witherington contends, is that all believers should be conformed in thought, word and deed to the image of Jesus Christ--the indelible image.

The second book examines God as redeemer, the fall of the human race, law and grace, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ. Book three is about our relationship or awakening to God, the Spirit of God, how God saves sinners, the life of the Christian, and the work of God. Finally, in book four, Boice looks at God and history, time, history, the church of God, secular and sacred cities, and the end of history.
Truly a well-reasoned and coherent systematic theology. Boice brings his respected wisdom and insights together into a beautiful exposition of Christian doctrine, proving that a strong God begets strong people, people capable of continuing God's work in the world. Jesus told us to build our house on the rock, and Boice offers us a picture of God as the rock, the foundation, upon which all of history rests. His goal, in writing this book, was to help people know God better, and he succeeds, painting a vivid picture of the source of our strength.

Old Testament Theology Vol. 3, Israel's Life
Author: John Goldingay
Publisher: IVP Academic / 2009 / Hardcover
Price: RM 126.00

In the Volume 3, Israel's Life of his definitive Old Testament Theology exemplary scholar John Goldingay, gives a theological exposition on hos Israel lived before God.

This volume encapsulates that vision, and makes the bold step of taking that Scripture, written then, and makes it relevant for the living of the Christian community in the modern world.

Liturgical Theology: The Church as Worshiping Community
Author: Simon Chan
Publisher: Inter-varsity Press / 2006 / Paperback
Price: RM

In Liturgical Theology, Simon Chan issues a call to evangelicals to develop a mature theology of the church---an ecclesiology that is grounded in the church's identity as a worshiping community. Evangelicals, he argues, are confused about the meaning and purpose of the church in part because they have an inadequate understanding of Christian worship. As a remedy for this ailment, Chan presents a coherent theology of the church that pays particular attention to the liturgical practices that have constituted Christian worship throughout the centuries. With a seasoned eye and steady hand, he guides the reader through these practices and unpacks their significance for theology, spirituality and the renewal of evangelicalism in the postmodern era.
Chan's proposal advances the conversation among evangelicals regarding the relationship between theology and worship. In contrast to some theologians who have tended to emphasize a sociological analysis, Chan argues that we need to consider what is essential to the church's theological identity. Drawing on the larger Christian tradition, Chan argues that we discover that identity primarily in the structure and significance of Christian worship.

Editor: Herbert W.Bateman IV
Publisher: Kregel Academic & Professional
Price: RM81.60
Can believers lose their salvation if they fall away from God’s grace?
Is there no restoration for a backslidden believer?
Does salvation involve past, present, and/or future dimensions?
These and other questions challenge readers of the five warning passages in Hebrews (2:1–4; 3:7–4:13; 5:11–6:12; 10:19–39; 12:14–29), verses that deliver both stern warnings and positive encouragement.

Author: Richard A.Horsley
Publisher: Fortress Press

Refuting a false dichotomy between "politics" and "religion" in Jesus' world (and our own), Jesus and the Powers rediscovers Jesus' response to the imperial power of his day. Richard A.

Then he explores aspects of Jesus' activity in the context of the Roman Empire. Horsley examines Jesus as an exorcist and prophetic figure and the character of his death by crucifixion. He also shows how the community life in the early Pauline assemblies gave form to a new response to imperial powers - and stimulus to contemporary readers to re-imagine their own response to political realities in our own day.

The Theological Wordbook: The 200 Most Important Theological Terms and Their Relevance for Today
Author: Donald K. Cambell, John F. Walvoord, John A. Witmer
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Price: RM106.20
Stimulating theology is an oxymoron for most people. "Theology" sounds like something for the severely intellectual, full of complicated ideas that escape the typical Christian reader.
In reality, theology is meant to enhance our understanding of God. Most of the words that make up the Christian vocabulary are common words, drawn from the realities of life, and therefore are easily applicable to real life. Based on this premise four leading authors have come together to create this excellent volume.
The Theological Wordbook tackles tough words, such as propitiation, regeneration, righteousness, and predestination, but it does so in a natural, plain-spoken manner designed to be enlightening rather than evasive. Also literally dozens of words you are likely to use every day, such as forgiveness, mind, peace, rest, family, truth, and guilt, have profound biblical value. Using The Theological Wordbook can enable you to more fully appreciate what the Bible teaches on these crucial topics and how each of these terms is relevant for life today.
As this happens, your understanding of God will expand. And as the words you use, speak, and hear in the community of faith become more familiar, you will become more connected to your own spiritual heritage.
The Theological Wordbook is the link between understanding God's Word in your head and accepting it in your heart.

Joshua (Two Horizons Old Testament Commentary)[Paperback]
Author: J.Gordon McConville & Stephen N.Williams
Publisher: Eerdmans
Price: RM52.50
The book of Joshua is often troubling — what should we make of the fact that the violent occupation of land is not simply presented, but celebrated? How can we reconcile that with the key role the book plays in the biblical drama of salvation? What should we make of the God of Joshua? / In this volume Gordon McConville and Stephen Williams interpret Joshua in relation to Christian theology, addressing such questions and placing the book in its proper place in the canonical whole. McConville deals specifically with the commentary and exegesis of the text. Williams then moves in to focus on issues of interpretation. He addresses key theological themes, such as land, covenant, law, miracle, judgment (with the problem of genocide), and idolatry. / The authors posit that the theological topics engaged in Joshua are not limited to the horizons of the author and first readers of the book, but that Joshua is part of a much larger testimony which concerns readers yet today.

Lamentations (Two Horizons Old Testament Commentary) [Paperback]
Author: Robin A.Parry
Publisher: Eerdmans
Price: RM52.80
Traditional scholarly commentaries aspire to open up biblical texts in the light of their ancient social and cultural contexts. In this commentary Robin Parry seeks to take the insights of such works seriously yet also move far beyond them by considering Lamentations within ever-expanding canonical and contemporary contexts. How do the words of Lamentations resonate when read in the context of Jeremiah? Or in the contexts of Isaiah 40–55, the New Testament, the history of Christian anti-Semitism, or the suffering of victims today?
The question at the heart of this unusual engagement with the text is “How can Lamentations function as Christian scripture?” Parry argues that the key to answering this question is to follow the ancient liturgical tradition of the church and to see the text in the light of the death and resurrection of Israel’s Messiah — Jesus. According to Parry, Lamentations is Israel’s Holy Saturday literature — the cries of those caught between the death of Jerusalem and its resurrection. In this context Christians are able to make connections between this anguished Israelite poetry, the sufferings of Jesus, and the sufferings of the world.

Luke (Belief) (Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible)
Author: Justo L. González
Publisher: Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
Price: RM89.50
Historical-critical approaches to Scripture rule out some readings and commend others, but they rarely offer much help to either theological reflection or the preaching of the Word. They do not point the church forward in the life of discipleship. These commentaries have learned from tradition, but they are most importantly commentaries for today. The authors share the conviction that their work will be more contemporary, more faithful, and more radical, to the extent that it is more biblical, honestly wrestling with the texts of the Scriptures.

The book finally probes Luther's sentiments on monasticism and secular authority.

Cruciformity: Paul's Narrative Spirituality of the Cross [Paperback]
Author: Michael J.Gorman
Publisher: Eerdmans
Price: RM94.50
Most studies of Paul concentrate solely on his theology. This book breaks new ground by focusing on the source and nature of Paul's spirituality. Taking his cue from Paul's express desire to "know nothing but Christ crucified," Michael Gorman shows how Paul's personal experience of God constantly intersects with the story of the cross, an event that both reveals the cruciform character of God and shapes believers into a community of "cruciformity" (conformity to the crucified Christ). Expertly combining biblical studies and theological reflection, this noteworthy volume presents a model of the Christian life marked by faith, love, power, and hope.
