Dear Colleagues: We are delighted to present Crossway’s newly redesigned 2013 catalog of academic and pastoral resources. We’ve organized frontlist titles by discipline so that you can find the right books for your area of ministry—whether in biblical studies, theology, or the pastorate. We pray that our gracious covenant Lord would use these books to equip leaders within the church to edify the body of Christ for his great glory. Many titles could be highlighted, but I would like to draw your attention in particular to D. A. Carson’s Jesus the Son of God (p. 1), which looks at the ways this christological title is misunderstood in theology and in contextualization debates. Also worth noting is Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum’s Kingdom through Covenant (p. 3), which exegetes all of the biblical covenants and looks at implications for theology, ecclesiology, and hermeneutical systems. Continuing Crossway’s commitment to digital publishing, we are pleased to offer The Greek-English Parallel New Testament E-book (p. 25), which puts the NA-27 and the ESV together for comparison and study. You will notice several new entries to various series that we are honored to publish. For the classroom these include Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition (pp. 14–15), Foundations of Evangelical Theology (p. 16), and Theology in Community (p. 17). Series for the church include 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches and their Healthy Church Study Guides (pp. 30–31). Pastors in particular will want to note the publication of Paul Tripp’s Dangerous Calling: Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry (p. 41), a bold call for a radical reshaping of pastoral culture. Resisting the temptation to continue listing other titles, I would simply encourage you to peruse the pages that follow. We look forward to seeing you at the ETS and SBL annual meetings in November. Be sure to visit our exhibits at each event! It is a joy for us to partner with you in serving the church and the academy through publishing.

CHRISTOLOGY

D. A. CARSON

Jesus the Son of God Series: Theology & Culture

A Christological Title Often Overlooked, Sometimes Misunderstood, and Currently Disputed

Biblical Studies

Although it is a foundational confession for all Christians, much of the theological significance of Jesus’s identity as “the Son of God” is often overlooked or misunderstood. Moreover, this christological concept stands at the center of today’s Bible translation debates and increased ministry efforts to Muslims. New Testament scholar D. A. Carson thus sheds light on this important issue with his usual exegetical clarity and theological insight, first by broadly surveying Jesus’s biblical name as “the Son of God” and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ’s sonship. The book concludes with the implications of Jesus’s divine sonship for how modern Christians think and speak about Christ, especially in relation to Bible translation and missionary engagement with Muslims across the globe.

Series: Biblical Studies for the Church

E N D O R S E M E N T S F O R T H E AU T H O R : “D. A. Carson is one of the most prolific and profound biblical scholars of our generation.” JOHN D. WOODBRIDGE , Research Professor, Church History and History of Christian Thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

CONTENTS: 1. “Son of God” as a Christological Title 2. “Son of God” in Select Passages 3. “Jesus the Son of God” in Christian and Muslim Contexts

“D. A. Carson is the scholarly stalwart for the doctrine of Scripture, . . . critically engaging the most significant arguments of the day and upholding the historic position of the Christian church and the Bible’s own self-attestation.

CHRISTOLOGY

BRUCE A. WARE

The Man Christ Jesus Theological Reflections on the Humanity of Christ The open questioning of the divinity of Christ has led many scholars to rightly affirm the centrality of Jesus’s divine nature for his person and work. At times, however, this defense of orthodoxy has led some to neglect Christ’s full humanity. To counteract this oversight, theologian Bruce Ware takes us back to the biblical text in order to encounter and explore the profoundly human person of Jesus.

E N D O R S E M E N T F O R T H E AU T H O R : “Bruce Ware keeps our heads and hearts on track toward an accurate knowledge of God against the backdrop of prevalent distortions.” JOSEPH M. STOWELL , President, Cornerstone University

Kingdom through Covenant Series: Theology & Culture

A Biblical-Theological Understanding of the Covenants

Biblical Studies

The disciplines of biblical and systematic theology join forces to investigate anew the biblical covenants and the implications of such a study for conclusions in systematic theology. By incorporating the latest available research from the ancient Near East and examining its implications for christology, ecclesiology, eschatology, and hermeneutics—biblical scholar Peter Gentry and systematic theologian Stephen Wellum present a thoughtful and viable alternative to both covenant theology and dispensationalism.

“Gentry and Wellum offer a third way, a via media, between covenant theology and dispensationalism, arguing that both of these theological systems are not informed sufficiently by biblical theology. Certainly we cannot understand the Scriptures without comprehending ‘the whole counsel of God,’ and here we find incisive exegesis and biblical theology at its best. This book is a must read and will be part of the conversation for many years to come.”

CREEDS AND CONFESSIONS

CARL R. TRUEMAN

The Creedal Imperative Recent years have seen a number of high profile scholars converting to Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy while a trend in the laity expresses an eclectic hunger for tradition. The status and role of confessions stands at the center of the debate as many resonate with the call to return to Christianity’s ancient roots. Carl Trueman offers an analysis of why creeds and confessions are necessary, how they have developed over time, and how they can function in the church of today and tomorrow.

ENDORSEMENTS: “In its creeds and confessions, the church affirms its allegiance to the God of the gospel and commits itself to think, speak, and govern its life in ways shaped by the gospel. This lively book, full of vigorous argument and biblical good sense, tells us why.” JOHN WEBSTER, Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen

“Trueman’s arguments are wide-ranging and include biblical exposition, lessons from church history, and modern cultural factors that may be unconsciously influencing one’s view of the issue. I will require this book for my seminary course on creeds.” ROBERT J. CARA , Chief Academic Officer, Hugh and Sallie Reaves Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary

CARL R. TRUEMAN (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is the Paul Woolley Professor of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary and pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church (OPC) in Ambler, Pennsylvania. He was editor of Themelios for nine years, has authored or edited more than a dozen books, and has contributed to multiple publications including The Dictionary of Historical Theology and The Cambridge Companion to Reformation Theology.

GREGORY ALAN THORNBURY (PhD, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) serves as dean of the School of Theology and Missions, vice president for spiritual life, and professor of philosophy at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee.

Biblical Studies

The expansion of the evangelical movement has resulted in the lack of coherent focus, common mission, and robust doctrinal core. Consequently the American church has struggled to effectively engage the modern world. Theologian and philosopher Gregory Alan Thornbury suggests that a renewed study of Carl F. H. Henry, one of the original architects of the modern evangelical movement, will help chart a new course for the next generation of evangelical theologians, pastors, and church leaders. This book explores topics such as the lost world of classic evangelicalism, epistemology, inerrancy, culture, institutions, and evangelism. Henry’s life and work are timelier than ever, providing crucial insights for a renewed vision of the church’s place in today’s society.

RetroChristianity Reclaiming the Forgotten Faith Surveying the pitfalls of the current evangelical landscape, professor Michael Svigel brings to bear the benefits of early apostolic church and patristic studies. Calling for a return to evangelicalism’s historical and theological roots, Svigel begins by addressing some of present-day evangelicalism’s problems and explores what can be done to help churches and the academy regain a healthy perspective on doctrine. Overall, this text is at the same time a book on the doctrine of the church, a study in church history, and a contemporary analysis and critique of modern evangelicalism.

ENDORSEMENTS: “I am requiring RetroChristianity for my master’s students studying ecclesiology, but the book would also be very helpful for pastors, church leaders, and educated laymen to help reformulate and recast their vision for the local church.” DAVID C .

“Rarely does one find a book so rich in content communicated so well. RetroChristianity is anything but retrenchment.

ROB LISTER (PhD, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) is associate professor of biblical and theological studies at the Talbot School of Theology. His primary research interests include theology proper, christology, and sanctification—all of which are fused together at the hub of his book on divine impassibility.

Biblical Studies

The doctrine of divine impassibility is in the limelight as today’s academy debates the significance of God’s emotional experience and most especially the question of divine suffering. Professor Rob Lister speaks into the issue, arguing that God’s nature is fundamentally impassible and yet profoundly impassioned. After outlining the history of the doctrine in the views of influential figures such as Augustine, Aquinas, and Luther, Lister carefully examines modernity’s growing rejection of impassibility and the subsequent evangelical responses by theologians such as John Stott and John Frame. With an eye toward holistic synthesis, this book proposes a theological model based upon fresh insights into the historical, biblical, and theological dimensions of this important doctrine.

JUSTIFICATION

JOSH MOODY, ED.

Jonathan Edwards and Justification Josh Moody has brought together an international team of five Edwards scholars to address the matter of Edwards and justification fairly and thoroughly, showing that Edwards was more conservative on this matter than has been thought. The contributors also demonstrate how Edwards’s theories are helpful in addressing some of the contemporary debates on justification as well as social issues. With substantial scholarship from experts such as Rhys Bezzant (Australia) and Doug Sweeney (America), this text speaks credibly and winsomely to the needs of the church and the academy.

ENDORSEMENTS: “A significant work that advances the growing scholarship on Jonathan Edwards and contributes to the current debates on justification.” DENNIS P. HOLLINGER, President and Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Christian Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“This superb collection of essays provides insight and guidance not only for understanding the thought of Jonathan Edwards in his historical context, but for wrestling with the current debate regarding the doctrine of justification by faith. This volume will prove to be richly rewarding, theologically engaging, and spiritually edifying for students and scholars alike.” DAVID S. DOCKERY, President, Union University

WORLDVIEWS AND SCRIPTURE

VERN SHERIDAN POYTHRESS

Inerrancy and Worldview Series: Theology & Culture

Answering Modern Challenges to the Bible

Biblical Studies

Vern Poythress offers the first worldview-based defense of Scriptural inerrancy, showing how worldview differences create or aggravate most perceived difficulties with the Bible. His positive case for biblical inerrancy implicitly critiques the worldview of theologians like Enns, Sparks, Allert, and McGowan. Poythress, who has researched and published in a variety of fields—including science, linguistics, and sociology— deals skillfully with the challenges presented in each of these disciplines. By directly addressing key examples in each field, Poythress shows that many difficulties can be resolved simply by exposing the influence of modern materialism.

This festschrift is being published in honor of John Walford, a distinguished professor at Wheaton College, and makes a critical contribution to the field of art history. A reader covering everything from sixth-century icons to contemporary art, this compilation investigates art history from a Christian perspective. Essays have been written by art experts around the country—from Fuller Seminary to the Smithsonian—and the foreword is penned by Hans Rookmaaker’s daughter, Marleen. This book further develops an approach to art historical writing infused by Christian vision, such as has been demonstrated in the work of Rookmaaker and Walford, and reflects the breadth of Walford’s scholarship as well as the richness of the history of Christianity and the visual arts.

“This wide-ranging collection of essays by current colleagues and former students will be an encouragement and inspiration to all who love art and love God.” LISA DEBOER, Professor of Art, Westmont College

“Over many years, John Walford has been an extraordinary and energetic scholar, writer, teacher, and artist. This festschrift is a fitting tribute to a man whose life has touched so many and in such profound ways.”

ENDORSEMENT FOR THE SERIES: “David Dockery, an experienced and wise Christian educator, has produced an important series of guides— aimed at students—intended both to recover and instruct regarding the Christian intellectual tradition. No doubt the series meets a significant need, not only for students but also for ministers and academics who are charged with the responsibility of helping us all think and live faithfully as followers of Christ. In light of our deeply flawed world, every generation needs a fresh retelling—in literature, theology, the arts, philosophy, or public policy—of the central truths of all human and natural experience, as revealed by the one true and living God through his Son and as authoritatively and indispensably taught in Holy Scripture.” ROBERT B. SLOAN JR., President, Houston Baptist University

EVANGELICAL THEOLOGY

Foundations of Evangelical Theology Series Series Editor: John S. Feinberg Addresses the major areas of evangelical theology with a special emphasis on current issues in each area. While other series may be more like a history of doctrine, this series purposes to incorporate insights from Scripture, historical theology, philosophy, etc., in order to produce an up-to-date systematic theology. This series rests on the very best of scholarship while at the same time being understandable to the beginner in theology as it explains how doctrine applies practically to everyday living. 6 x 9 / Printed Caseside

GREGG R. ALLISON

Sojourners and Strangers The Doctrine of the Church The existence of a seemingly endless variety of denominations has left many Christians unsure about the Bible’s teaching on the nature and proper organization of the church. In the latest addition to the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series, Gregg R. Allison offers readers a comprehensive and systematic study of the church, deeply rooted in God’s Word and Christian history. Whereas many books on the church tend to be either excessively academic or merely pragmatic, Allison presents a rich approach to ecclesiology consisting of sustained doctrinal reflection interwoven with wise, practical application. Exploring everything from the relationship of the church and Israel to the nature of the sacraments, this comprehensive resource will be an invaluable aid for years to come. 496 pages, 978-1-58134-661-9, $40.00, Available November 2012

The Kingdom of God

Series: Biblical Studies for the Church

The kingdom of God is a very large biblical category indeed. Accordingly, a comprehensive understanding of the kingdom would illuminate many aspects of theology. With this in mind, Robert Peterson, Christopher Morgan, Bruce Waltke, Robert Yarbrough, Gerald Bray, Clinton Arnold, Gregg Allison, Stephen Nichols, and Anthony Bradley have collaborated to articulate a full view of the kingdom of God across multiple disciplines. One of the most important books on the kingdom since G. E. Ladd, this volume offers a robust theology and is corroborated by the very series in which it stands. Fourth in the noted Theology in Community series, The Kingdom of God establishes the significance of the kingdom across the Old and New Testaments, in eschatological literature, in church history, and in culture today.

PSALMS

GORDON WENHAM

The Psalter Reclaimed Praying and Praising with the Psalms Most frequently referenced as a source of comfort in times of crisis, the book of Psalms is often misread or misunderstood. Drawing on his extensive experience in studying and teaching the Psalter, Old Testament scholar Gordon Wenham has crafted a guide for engaging this surprisingly complex portion of Scripture with solid interpretive methods. Wenham teaches the practices of singing, reading, and praying the Psalms—paying special attention to the Psalter’s canonical structure, messianic focus, and ethical goal—and helps readers to discover afresh the manifold wonders of this relational portion of the Bible.

E N D O R S E M E N T S F O R AU T H O R ’ S P R E V I O U S WO R K : “An important contribution to both ethics and our insightful reading of the Psalms.” PATRICK D. MILLER, Charles T. Haley Professor of Old Testament Theology Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary

“Wenham charts a fresh new course in studying the Psalms, asking readers to go beyond simply using them haphazardly in worship contexts as songs.” DAVID M. HOWARD JR., Professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary

Love Your Enemies Series: Theology & Culture

Jesus’ Love Command in the Synoptic Gospels and the Early Christian Paraenesis (A History of the Tradition and Interpretation of Its Uses)

Biblical Studies

Giving attention to various critical theories, John Piper presents evidence that the early church earnestly advocated for non-retaliatory love as a key to the church’s own ethical tradition or paraenesis. Piper relies heavily on the Synoptics, passages in Romans, 1 Thessalonians, 1 Peter, and noncanonical evidence to build his case. A work of erudition and insight, this dissertation does not have the popular flavor of most of his books, instead offering a well-reasoned argument about the nature of enemy love.

VERN SHERIDAN POYTHRESS

Inerrancy and the Gospels A God-Centered Approach to the Challenges of Harmonization As a multi-disciplinary New Testament scholar, professor Vern Sheridan Poythress contributes a worthy case for inerrancy in the gospels and demonstrates key principles for harmonization. He also tackles some of the most difficult exegetical problems, showing the way forward on passages that have perplexed many such as the centurion’s servant, the cursing of the fig tree, and more. All those who affirm the authority and inerrancy of Scripture will find in this volume great encouragement and insight as Poythress has provided an arresting case to stem the tide of skepticism.

“It is all too common today to bemoan harmonization, but there is value in pursuing the real possibility that differences in the Gospels can and should be seen as complementing one another in their presentation of truth. Vern Poythress’s Inerrancy and the Gospels uses a self-authenticating approach to Scripture to argue that harmonization does give insight in how the Gospels work. This is a study well worth reading and considering regardless of whether one accepts the self-authenticating model or not.” DARRELL L . BOCK , Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

VERN SHERIDAN POYTHRESS is professor of New Testament interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary. He has six earned degrees, including a PhD from Harvard University and a ThD from the University of Stellenbosch. He is the author of numerous books on aspects of biblical interpretation and science.

?? OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE STUDIES

Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Series Series Author: Nancy Guthrie This series reveals the work of Jesus in the Old Testament, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Hebrew Scriptures. Individuals and groups who want to study the Bible from a christological perspective will love this series from seasoned Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie. 6 x 9 / Trade Paperback / $16.99

The Son of David Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books Through 10 weeks of guided study, participants will explore the story of the nation of Israel, from their entrance into the Promised Land under Joshua through their eventual exile under the leadership of Israel’s rebellious kings. Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie shows Scripture’s teaching on the true source of courage, the ultimate anchor of confidence, and the sure antidote to corruption, helping readers see Jesus, the ultimate Son of David.

ENDORSEMENTS FOR THE SERIES: “While there are good books out there telling pastors how to preach Christ from all the Scriptures, there have been very few Bible studies for laypeople—especially for women—along these lines. Nancy Guthrie does an amazing job of helping us to fit the pieces of the biblical puzzle together, with Christ at the center.” MICHAEL S. HORTON, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

“The Bible is a book about Jesus. The disciples walking to Emmaus after the resurrection discovered this as Christ himself walked along with them and explained how the Old Testament pointed to the Savior. I recommend this entire series to you.” ALISTAIR BEGG, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

RESURRECTION

THOMAS MILLER, MD

Series: Theology & Culture

Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? A Surgeon-Scientist Examines the Evidence

Biblical Studies

Despite the array of books written in defense of this foundational Christian doctrine, very few have engaged the resurrection from a scientific perspective. Filling that void, Thomas Miller, an experienced and well-respected surgeon, challenges the notion that modern medicine has disproved the possibility of the resurrection. Miller assesses the reliability of the documents, evaluates the credibility of the witnesses, and identifies the consequences following the event, concluding with a powerful reflection on the significance of the empty tomb for today. Through careful investigation of the evidence, he demonstrates that a compelling case can be made for the reality of the resurrection.

Exploring the wonders of heaven while taking an honest look at the realities of hell, Rogers provides a clear and accessible summary of all things related to the afterlife.

SALVATION

PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN

Is Jesus the Only Way? [Redesign] If Christians are going to insist that their claims are true—and that all other religions’ claims about salvation are thereby false— they must be prepared to dialogue with those who believe all religious paths are equally valid. This short and accessible book discusses the four essential Christian beliefs that pluralists find most troublesome and explains clearly the supporting rationale. Ryken not only argues that Jesus is the only way, but he also explains how Christ makes the way for salvation, and why this must be true. This concise resource is a great introduction to the most essential apologetic issue of our times.

PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN (DPhil, University of Oxford) is president of Wheaton College and, prior to that, served as senior minister at Philadelphia’s historic Tenth Presbyterian Church. He has written or edited over 30 books, and has lectured and taught at universities and seminaries worldwide.

MATT CHANDLER WITH JARED WILSON

The Explicit Gospel Series: Theology & Culture Biblical Studies

Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, Matt Chandler has written this best-selling book. He begins with the specifics of the gospel—outlining what it is and what it is not—and then switches gears to focus on the fullness of the gospel and its massive implications on both personal and cosmic levels. Recognizing the common tendency to fixate on either the micro or macro aspects of the gospel, Chandler also warns of the dangers on either side—of becoming overly individualistic or syncretistic.

ENDORSEMENTS: “Chandler issues a robust call to make the gospel an explicit and central part of our preaching, and takes pains to show what that looks like. Amen and Amen.”

“If you only read one book this year, make it this one. It’s that important.” RICK WARREN, #1 New York Times best-selling author, The Purpose Driven Life

“Matt is a leading voice, a great expositor of the Scriptures, passionate about Jesus, and serious about the gospel and making God known. When he speaks, I listen, and when he writes, I read.” BRAD LOMENICK , Executive Director, Catalyst

Taking God Seriously Vital Things We Need to Know Best-selling author J. I. Packer, one of the most influential scholars of our day, has put together what may become a Christian classic on the vital truths of the faith.

This concise book serves to guard against liberalism by pushing Christians to know their faith so they can explain it to inquirers and sustain it against skeptics. Here is a call to a discipleship in mere Christianity— the business of taking God seriously.

KEVIN DEYOUNG

The Hole in Our Holiness Series: Theology & Culture

Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness

Biblical Studies

The “hole in our holiness” is that evangelicals don’t look particularly holy. In fact, rather there seems to be a greater focus on either personal depravity or moral liberalism than on the pursuit of holiness. Looking to right the balances, Kevin DeYoung presents a popular-level treatment of sanctification and union with Christ, helping readers to see what matters most—being like Jesus. He shows how one can be like Christ in being joined to Christ. The church is ready for DeYoung’s timely book, ready to avoid legalism and ambivalence, and ready for someone to articulate the inextricable relationship between grace and holiness.

PAUL DAVID TRIPP

Dangerous Calling Series: Theology & Culture

Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry

Biblical Studies

After traveling the world for many years and speaking at hundreds of churches of all kinds, Paul David Tripp is concerned about the state of pastoral culture. He is concerned not only about the spiritual life of the pastor but also with the very people who train him, call him, relate to him, and restore him if necessary. Dangerous Calling reveals the truth that the culture surrounding our pastors is spiritually unhealthy—an environment that actively undermines the well-being and efficacy of our church leaders and thus the entire church body. Here is a book that both diagnoses and offers cures for issues that impact every church member and leader, and gives solid strategies for fighting against a culture that threatens the health of our pastors.

ENDORSEMENTS:

“Dangerous Calling is a dangerous book to read. It is also a book every person in ministry should read. It will cut you to the heart and bring massive conviction if you read it with a humility and ask God to expose sins deeply hidden in your soul.

JONATHAN K. DODSON

Gospel-Centered Discipleship [Foreword by Matt Chandler] [Series: Re:Lit] Reflecting on the practice of discipleship in young adult, college, graduate, and local church contexts, Jonathan Dodson has discerned some common pitfalls—ranging from performanceoriented accountability groups to loosely Christian hang out times. Looking to strike a balance, Dodson charts a biblically faithful, grace-driven alternative. Additionally, he provides a practical model for creating gospel-centered discipleship groups—small, reproducible, missional, gender-specific groups of believers that fight for faith together. This book blends both theology and practice to inspire and equip Christians to effectively fight sin, keep Jesus central, and make gospel-centered discipleship a way of life.

ENDORSEMENTS: “Dodson’s Spirit-led, gospel-centered, organically relational, and authentic book is such a rare jewel. I pray the Spirit will use this book to change the way you view and do discipleship.” MATT CHANDLER, Lead Pastor, The Village Church; author, The Explicit Gospel

“Refreshingly honest and realistic, Dodson does not give us a rule book, but practical teaching that can help every follower of Christ more effectively live out the gospel and the Great Commission.” ROBERT E. COLEMAN, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, Master Plan of Evangelism

Mistakes Leaders Make Series: Theology & Culture

[Foreword by Mark Driscoll]

Biblical Studies

Following his first book on leadership, Leaders Who Last, Dave Kraft consulted with colleagues, readers, and fellow leaders to generate a list of the top 10 fatal mistakes leaders make—fatal in that they can be the end of ministry effectiveness, relationships, and God’s blessing. Drawing on his extensive experience in helping leaders avoid these errors, Kraft methodically addresses each mistake by looking at the problem, the principle, and the practice of a solution. He uses the narrative device of a fictitious church leadership team to illustrate his points in an engaging manner and offers us a professional guide, helping both male and female leaders have ministries and relationships that last.

DUANE LITFIN

Word versus Deed Resetting the Scales to a Biblical Balance The church has often found it difficult to find and maintain the ministries of both preaching the gospel in words and showing it with deeds. Today, for example, some are emphasizing deeds at the expense of words, while others hold fast to “talking” and forsake the doing. Seeking to right the balances, Dr. Duane Litfin steers the conversation toward the biblical harmony of word and deed, pointing out the church’s tendency to overcorrect—either cutting out the preaching of the gospel or forgetting the application of action. An elder statesmen in the church, Litfin’s training in communication theory and in detailed exegesis is brought to bear on this important subject, bringing verbal proclamation in sync with the witness of one’s actions.

ENDORSEMENTS: “Litfin has articulately and persuasively brought these issues of the gospel into balance. His fresh, intriguing treatment of key passages and his usual precision in developing an argument make a much needed contribution that leads us to empower the gospel with both word and deed.” JOSEPH M. STOWELL , President, Cornerstone University

Why Cities Matter Series: Theology & Culture

To God, the Culture, and the Church [Foreword by Tim Keller]

Biblical Studies

More people live in cities now than at any other time in human history, presenting a historic opportunity for Christians to influence the majority of the world. Unfortunately, most Christian literature about the city focuses solely on its problems (crime, homelessness, etc.), rather than providing a comprehensive analysis of the city that informs, instructs, and inspires. Using sociological research and data, urban pastors Justin Buzzard and Stephen Um lay out the vision and rationale for church planting, cultural engagement, and missionary impulses in our world’s cities as they provide a solid foundation for motivation. Here is a call to make the cities our home, to take good care of them, and to participate in God’s kingdom-building work in the urban centers of our world.

Faithmapping A Gospel Atlas for Your Spiritual Journey Most Christians and their respective churches emphasize one aspect of Christian living over another—focusing on missions or worship or even the Bible. It’s as if they are trying to navigate with mere fragments of a map—different parts of the good news—and so they fail to see the whole picture. Daniel Montgomery, lead pastor of the fast-growing Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, and Mike Cosper, founder of Sojourn Music, argue that we need to put the collective fragments together, recovering the whole gospel for the whole church, and taking it into the whole world.

E N D O R S E M E N T F O R T H E AU T H O R : “Daniel Montgomery will be one of the most significant young pastors in America in the next decade.

MICHAEL S. BEATES

Disability and the Gospel How God Uses Our Brokenness to Display His Grace [Foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada] Michael Beates’s concern with disability issues began nearly 30 years ago when his eldest child was born with multiple disabilities. Now, as more families like Michael’s are affected by a growing number of disorders and difficulties ranging from autism to food allergies, the need for programs and paradigm shifts is greater than ever. Beates thus seeks to motivate churches to pursue ministry to children and adults with developmental disabilities. He works through key Bible passages on brokenness and disability to develop helpful principles for believers and churches, teaching us first to embrace our own brokenness and then to embrace those who are physically and visibly broken.

ENDORSEMENTS: “I wish I could adequately express how happy I am about this new book because there are thousands of families like the Beates family and millions of people like me whose disabilities force hard-hitting questions about God and the church. . . .

How the Church’s Worship Tells the Story of the Gospel [Foreword by Bob Kauflin]

Biblical Studies

Bringing biblical truth to bear on the issue of worship, Mike Cosper, an experienced worship leader, argues that all true worship has three concrete elements: 1. One object—God; 2. Two contexts—the gathered church and the scattered church; 3. Three audiences—God, the church, and the world. Writing from the conviction that the gospel is the heartbeat of true worship, Cosper explores four key areas—liturgy, song, style, and creativity—showing that worship is fundamental to spiritual formation. This eminently readable book, designed for church leaders and laypersons alike, offers a vibrant theology of worship that is biblical yet contextual, systematic yet practical.

GEORGE WHITEFIELD; LEE GATISS, ED.

The Sermons of George Whitefield George Whitefield was the leading evangelical clergyman of the 18th century and one of the driving forces, humanly speaking, of revivals on both sides of the Atlantic. Yet until now, his sermons have been left as an untapped resource for today’s church. Editor Lee Gatiss has thus reproduced 61 of Whitefield’s sermons with careful and extensive footnotes detailing the historical and theological background to Whitefield’s preaching— effectively putting the man and his messages into context for a new generation. The text has also been updated with modern grammar, spelling, and punctuation—revised in a manner that leaves Whitefield’s distinct voice intact and coherent for today’s reader. Finally, the powerful and passionate preaching that set the world on fire in the Great Awakening is available to all.

“Whitefield was undoubtedly one of the greatest preachers of the modern Christian era. Pastors, professors, and laypeople would all do well to reflect on these sermons, which more than any other earthly force helped stir the massive revivals of the Great Awakening.” THOMAS S. KIDD, Associate Professor of History, Baylor University

“Gatiss has done us a service—dusting off, tidying up, and re-presenting Whitefield’s electric preaching to a new age. Gatiss’s introduction to the sermons is worth the price of the volumes alone.” JOSH MOODY, Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

LEE GATISS is director of Church Society, visiting lecturer in church history at Wales Evangelical School of Theology, and editor of Theologian. He holds degrees in history and theology from Oxford, Oak Hill College, and Westminster Seminary, and is working towards his doctorate from Cambridge, focusing on 17th-century biblical interpretation.

Sex and Money Series: Theology & Culture

Pleasures That Leave You Empty and Grace That Satisfies

Biblical Studies

Chief among the world’s objects of affection are sex and money—two pleasures unequaled in their power to captivate our attention and demand our worship. In what is sure to become a trusted resource, seasoned counselor Paul David Tripp pulls back the curtain on the lies of our flesh and the ways we distort God’s good gifts, examining the insanity of our culture and exposing our tendency to fall prey to the hollow promises of this world. In exploring how God’s grace frees us from futile pursuits, Tripp directs us to the wisdom of God in Scripture and the liberating power of the gospel, offering practical guidance on finding true joy and enduring satisfaction.

“Paul Tripp writes out of the experience of his own suffering and his skill as a pastor/counselor in helping people through times of trouble. He knows what it is like to go through the storms of life, but more importantly, he knows where to find shelter.” PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN, President, Wheaton College

“What I’ve come to expect from Paul Tripp is consistently deep, transparent, biblical, wise, practical, gospel-driven counsel. Rather than muddying the water with self-focused strategies designed to meet our ever-multiplying needs, Paul, as the seasoned soul-physician he is, correctly diagnoses our problems and provides the cure—humble faith in Jesus Christ.”

Marriage and the Family Biblical Essentials More so than at any point in history, we are confronted with the need to carefully define the meaning of marriage and family. Professor Andreas Köstenberger and ethics expert David W. Jones speak to the issues at hand and guide us through the fray. Presenting a Christian theology of marriage and parenting, they offer insight on issues such as abortion, contraception, infertility, adoption, homosexuality, and divorce. Marriage and the Family points the way to the spiritual solution to our culture’s confusion: a return to, and rebuilding of, the biblical foundation of marriage and the family.

ENDORSEMENTS: “Anything Köstenberger publishes is worthy of attention. His international education and experience, his teaching career, and his Christian character make him an author to be read with both care and anticipation. Sensible, balanced, and biblical, this is a sound and timely summary of the Bible’s teaching on some of the most basic and yet controversial topics in today’s world. I highly recommend it.” MARK DEVER, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

MARRIAGE

TIM SAVAGE

No Ordinary Marriage Series: Theology & Culture

Together for God’s Glory

Biblical Studies

One of the greatest social tragedies of our day is the underperformance of marriage—not only marriages that end in divorce, but also those which, while remaining “intact,” become painfully strained and emotionally scarred. With profound insight and vivid illustrations, pastor and marriage counselor Tim Savage helps couples to realize the unlimited potential of marriage—to discover how the glory of God can infuse our relationships, increase our joy, and make us bright lights in a troubled world.

“What makes this work stand out in an overcrowded marketplace of ‘how to’ books is its compelling vision of marriage for the glory of God. I know of few books on marriage that combine elegant writing, sound doctrine, clear illustrations, and practical advice in equal measure. No one, or couple, who reads this book will look at marriage in an ordinary way again.” KEVIN J. VANHOOZER, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“This is no ordinary book on marriage. Embrace the message of this book and it will transform your marriage, your family, and your entire life.” COLIN S. SMITH, Senior Pastor, The Orchard Evangelical Free Church

PAUL DAVID TRIPP

What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage [Paperback Edition] Counselor Paul Tripp contends that unchecked expectations are the cause of the majority of problems in marriage, leaving couples unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.

Purposed to bring about perpetual reconciliation, these commitments equip couples to develop a thriving, gracebased marriage in all circumstances and seasons.

MARRIAGE

JOHN PIPER

This Momentary Marriage Series: Theology & Culture

A Parable of Permanence [Paperback Edition]

Biblical Studies

Reflecting on over 40 years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenantkeeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a picture of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike.

JOHN PIPER (DTheol, University of Munich) is pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. He taught biblical studies at Bethel College in Minnesota for six years, and in 1980 accepted the call to serve as pastor at Bethlehem. Piper is the author of more than 30 books including Desiring God, Don’t Waste Your Life, and Spectacular Sins.

The Shepherd Leader at Home Knowing, Leading, Protecting, and Providing for Your Family Husbands and dads play a crucial role in the health and survival of the family. That’s why leadership expert Tim Witmer has written this book—to strengthen men’s efforts to lead well. He applies a biblical framework to the role of leadership in the home, showing how effective shepherding involves knowing, leading, protecting, and providing for your family. Communicating solid principles with a down-to-earth, relatable tone, Witmer gives wise counsel and practical direction to men who want to lead their families well.

“Another book on marriage and family life? Yes, but this one is different. It is short, but not easy; practical, but also deeply realistic; honest, but also warm.

Perhaps that’s why this is such a wonderfully encouraging book.” SINCLAIR B . FERGUSON, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

ELYSE M. FITZPATRICK AND DENNIS E. JOHNSON

Counsel from the Cross Connecting Broken People to the Love of Christ [Redesign] To aid churches in ministering to broken and hurting people, the two authors—one, a woman trained in biblical counseling, and the other, a male professor of practical theology—present a comprehensive counseling model based on Scripture and the work of Christ.

Here is a relevant text for those who counsel as part of pastoral ministry and for all involved in mentoring or discipleship.

Dear Colleagues: We are delighted to present Crossway’s newly redesigned 2013 catalog of academic and pastoral resources. We’ve organized frontlist titles by discipline so that you can find the right books for your area of ministry—whether in biblical studies, theology, or the pastorate. We pray that our gracious covenant Lord would use these books to equip leaders within the church to edify the body of Christ for his great glory. Many titles could be highlighted, but I would like to draw your attention in particular to D. A. Carson’s Jesus the Son of God (p. 1), which looks at the ways this christological title is misunderstood in theology and in contextualization debates. Also worth noting is Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum’s Kingdom through Covenant (p. 3), which exegetes all of the biblical covenants and looks at implications for theology, ecclesiology, and hermeneutical systems. Continuing Crossway’s commitment to digital publishing, we are pleased to offer The Greek-English Parallel New Testament E-book (p. 25), which puts the NA-27 and the ESV together for comparison and study. You will notice several new entries to various series that we are honored to publish. For the classroom these include Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition (pp. 14–15), Foundations of Evangelical Theology (p. 16), and Theology in Community (p. 17). Series for the church include 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches and their Healthy Church Study Guides (pp. 30–31). Pastors in particular will want to note the publication of Paul Tripp’s Dangerous Calling: Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry (p. 41), a bold call for a radical reshaping of pastoral culture. Resisting the temptation to continue listing other titles, I would simply encourage you to peruse the pages that follow. We look forward to seeing you at the ETS and SBL annual meetings in November. Be sure to visit our exhibits at each event! It is a joy for us to partner with you in serving the church and the academy through publishing.
