MATT CHANDLER WITH JARED WILSON

The Explicit Gospel Series: Re:Lit Popular pastor and speaker Matt Chandler writes his first book to remind the church of what is of first and utmost importance—the gospel. Too few people attending church today, even those in evangelical churches, are exposed to the gospel explicitly. Sure, many will hear about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding the bad, but the gospel message simply isn’t there—at least not in its specificity and its fullness. 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 punchy treatise. 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 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. Here is a call to true Christianity, to know the gospel explicitly, and to unite the church on the amazing grounds of the good news of Jesus!

MATT CHANDLER is lead pastor of The Village Church, a multi-campus church in the Dallas metroplex of over 10,000 people. His sermons are among the chart-topping podcasts on iTunes and he speaks at conferences worldwide. Prior to accepting the pastorate at The Village, Chandler had a vibrant itinerant ministry for over ten years where he spoke to hundreds of thousands of people in America and abroad about the glory of God and beauty of Jesus.

MICHAEL J. SVIGEL

RetroChristianity Reclaiming the Forgotten Faith Addresses the current exodus of Christians from evangelical churches and argues for a return to historical roots. Evangelicalism is in trouble. Surveying the modern evangelical landscape, professor Michael Svigel asks, “Why does evangelicalism appear to be spinning out of control, losing appeal to younger generations, dwindling in numbers, or selling out to pop culture to muster a crowd?” He answers this question by looking to the past—to a retro Christianity. 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 regain a healthy perspective on doctrine. He then gives practical examples of what establishing a biblical, historical, and theologically sound foundation will mean for Christians as they think through aspects of church life and worship. As the numbers of those confused or disenchanted with evangelicalism continue to grow, Svigel’s book meets a timely need and will benefit many readers with his balanced argument for preserving the evangelical faith.

TIM SAVAGE

No Ordinary Marriage Together for God’s Glory A veteran pastor and marriage counselor calls couples to discover how the glory of God can infuse and transform their marriages. The underperformance of marriage is the greatest social tragedy of our time, claims pastor and counselor Tim Savage. But he believes this tragedy can be dramatically reversed. In his new book, No Ordinary Marriage, Savage calls couples to discover how the glory of God can infuse their marriages, fulfilling their own joy and making them a strong testimony to a troubled world. Savage explains that the way to such a God-glorifying marriage is through the cross. The radical, selfless love of Christ and his resurrection power make it possible for imperfect husbands and wives to live out the miracle of self-giving love. This affects every area of the relationship—from conflict to intimacy to working together toward a common goal. With biblical insight and vivid illustrations, Savage encourages every married couple to realize the great potential of their union. The vision of this book is for marriages to center on God’s glory and thus bring great contentment to husbands and wives as well as great hope to the world.

TIM SAVAGE (PhD, University of Cambridge) has been senior pastor of Camelback Bible Church in Paradise Valley, Arizona, since 1988. He is a council member for The Gospel Coalition. Savage is married to Lesli and they have two sons, Matthew and Jonathan.

JONATHAN K. DODSON

Gospel-Centered Discipleship (Foreword by Matt Chandler) Series: Re:Lit Experienced discipler and church leader Jonathan Dodson addresses defective forms of discipleship and offers a gospel-centered alternative. Reflecting on the practice of disciple making in young adult, college, graduate, and local church contexts, Jonathan Dodson has discerned some common pitfalls. For many, discipleship is reduced to a legalistic form of accountability. For others, discipleship is loose adherence to spiritual facts. Both approaches distort biblical motivations for Christian obedience and are in need of reform. By explaining various motivations for discipleship, 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. Both new and growing Christians will learn to trust the gospel in community as they fight together for holiness as well as how to start gospel-centered community groups in any local church.

DUANE LITFIN

Word versus Deed Resetting the Scales to a Biblical Balance A timely call to pursue a much-needed balance between preaching the gospel and living it out. The Bible teaches that the church is called to a balanced ministry of both preaching the gospel in words and showing it with deeds. Yet the church has often found it difficult to find and maintain this balance. Today some are emphasizing deeds at the expense of words, while others hold fast to “talking” and forsake the “doing.” This is an imbalance that must be righted. Standing at the helm of a leading Christian college, Duane Litfin has had a first-hand look at the issues students and alumni are talking about. Many Christians are excited to debate the importance of social justice and evangelism now more than ever before. Seeking to level the balance, 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.

DUANE LITFIN (DPhil, Oxford University; PhD, Purdue University) is president emeritus of Wheaton College where he served for seventeen years. He is the author of several books and his writings have appeared in numerous journals and periodicals.

ANDREAS KÖSTENBERGER WITH DAVID W. JONES

Marriage and the Family Biblical Essentials During a time of cultural ferment and crisis with regard to marriage and the family, this book provides a timely solution, speaking directly to current issues and explaining the Bible’s teaching on marriage and family. The recent rulings on gay marriage and debates on family-related issues have placed the topics of marriage and family at the forefront of the public eye, more so than at any point in history. Western civilization is confronted with the need to define the meaning of the terms marriage and family. Professor Andreas Köstenberger and ethics expert David W. Jones have composed this popular-level book to speak to the issues at hand and point to the fundamental solution: a return to the biblical foundation of marriage and the family. Presenting a Christian theology of marriage and parenting, they offer insight on issues such as abortion, contraception, infertility, and adoption as well as helpful advice for those who are unmarried. The two writers also address two major threats to marriage and the family within the contemporary culture: homosexuality and divorce. Immensely important and well-timed, Marriage and the Family will satisfy a hungry market on the lookout for the biblical truth about marriage and family.

LYDIA BROWNBACK

A Woman’s Wisdom How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything Author and speaker Lydia Brownback teaches women about true wisdom through the practical wisdom found in the book of Proverbs. Advice books are no short-lived trend. They continue to top bestseller lists even though much of the “wisdom” being offered proves shallow in the long run. People are looking for practical, proven advice for life, and the book of Proverbs is the wisest place to start. From the short, pithy teaching in Proverbs, Lydia Brownback shows how the Bible speaks to real life issues such as money, emotions, marriage, and the day-to-day grind. Writing with a familiar yet knowledgeable tone, Brownback draws in the busiest of readers and asks realistic questions for personal reflection or group study. This well-conceived, twelve chapter book contains three parts: 1. What Is Wisdom and Why Does It Matter? 2. Six Things Wise Women Know 3. A Portrait of Wisdom A Woman’s Wisdom gives women a way to be wise, to know the very Author of wisdom, and to understand how to apply his relevant riches.

LYDIA BROWNBACK (MAR, Westminster Theological Seminary) is a book editor, a speaker at women’s conferences around the country, and an author of numerous books including the On-the-Go Devotional series, Fine China Is for Single Women Too, and Legacy of Faith: From Women of the Bible to Women of Today.

Charity and Its Fruits Living in the Light of God’s Love A classic, unabridged work by Jonathan Edwards on 1 Corinthians 13—made accessible via annotations, definitions, and callouts written by Edwards scholar Kyle Strobel. Jonathan Edwards took great pains to illustrate how love must be lived out and exercised in one’s life when he exposited the thirteenth chapter of the first book of Corinthians. Offered here is the only accessible edition of Charity and Its Fruits based on the most authoritative transcription of the original manuscripts. Edwards scholar Kyle Strobel goes to great lengths to help readers understand this classic work of biblical spirituality by providing a detailed introduction, explanatory notes addressing difficult points throughout the text, definitions of arcane terminology, and a conclusion showing how to appropriate Edwards’s work. Additionally, Strobel includes callout boxes, relevant quotes from Edwards’s other writings, and visual representations of his more abstract distinctions. Here is an updated and explanatory version of Jonathan Edwards’s Charity and Its Fruits for pastors and laypeople—the perfect blend of doctrine and application of the all-important topic, Christian love.

KYLE STROBEL (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is the author of Metamorpha: Jesus as a Way of Life and founder of Metamorpha, an online community for Christian spiritual formation. He has served as a fellow at Yale’s Jonathan Edwards Center, has published several academic reviews of works related to Edwards, and has taught graduate courses on Edwards’s spirituality theology.

As armies begin to mass for a final battle, the odds seem to favor the forces of evil, and Teo and Ana will have to fight for faith when all hope has been lost. In the final book of the Chiveis Trilogy, Litfin takes readers on a journey filled with peril, faraway lands, and adventure. Men and women alike will enjoy the fast-paced narrative, imaginative plot, and vivid descriptions of this master storyteller.

BRYAN M. LITFIN is the author of The Sword and The Gift, the first two books of the Chiveis Trilogy, as well as Getting to Know the Church Fathers. He is associate professor of theology at Moody Bible Institute. He and his wife, Carolyn, have two children.

9Marks: Building Healthy Churches Series 9Marks ministries is offering a short, readable book on each of the nine marks originally made famous by pastor Mark Dever in his bestselling book, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church (plus one new “mark” on doctrine). Useful for group studies, or even as visitors’ gifts, these concise books are sure to appeal to the wider church market. Soon to follow the first two releases on church discipline and membership are the remaining eight books in the series: expositional preaching, biblical theology, the gospel, conversion, evangelism, discipleship and growth, church leadership, and sound doctrine.

Church Discipline How the Church Protects the Name of Jesus Provides an accessible framework for understanding church discipline, offering nine case studies and several practical considerations for leading a church through disciplinary situations with grace and truth. More and more church leaders, pastors, and members are looking for guidance on how to practice church discipline in a biblical way. Here is a contemporary and concise how-to guide that provides a theological framework for understanding and implementing disciplinary measures in the local church, along with several examples of real-life situations. Drawing on both Matthew 18 and 1 Corinthians 5, this brief hardback helps leaders face the endless variety of circumstances and sins for which no exact scriptural case study exists—sins that don’t show up on any list and need a healthy framework to be corrected appropriately in love.

Church Membership How the World Knows Who Represents Jesus (Foreword by Michael Horton) New in the 9Marks series on healthy church life, Jonathan Leeman offers a short, readable book on why church membership is a critical element in every healthy Christian’s maturation.

In a time when many are shunning the practice of organized religion, Jonathan Leeman addresses the commonly asked (and often unanswered) question of, why should I join a church? By offering a brief, straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it’s important, Leeman gives the local church its proper due and builds a case for committing to the local body. Church Membership is a useful tool for churches to distribute en masse to new and potential members of their congregation.

9Marks Healthy Church Study Guides Series A series of ten 6–7 week Bible studies covering the nine distinctives of a healthy church as originally laid out in Nine Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever. Conveniently packaged and accessibly written, the format of this series is guided, inductive discussion of Scripture passages and is ideal for use in Sunday school, church-wide studies, or small group contexts. This series is distinctive because of its exclusive focus on the life of the local church—its membership, discipline, leadership, corporate worship, and so on. It is also unique because, while the substance of it is simple (inductive Bible study), the applications focus is on the church community as a whole, rather than simply the individual Christian. All in all, the 9Marks Healthy Church series is a great resource for the edification of the local church as well as the entire congregation.

Built Upon the Rock The Church Examines key biblical images of the church to help participants discover what the church should look like and how it should operate. The local church is meant to be living, growing, distinct, and Godglorifying, yet many disagree about what a church really is and what it should look like. This study works through seven biblical aspects of the church and, in so doing, helps participants to discover a big-picture vision of the church.

Committing to One Another Church Membership Establishes the biblical basis for church membership and teaches how to be a healthy church member. This study answers the question, why join a church? By seeing the scriptural reasoning for becoming a church member, participants will also learn what it looks like to be a healthy member and how to serve well within their local congregation.

God’s Good News The Gospel Reviews the Bible’s teaching on the good news of Jesus and how the gospel applies to every aspect of church life. A healthy church is a church in which every member—young and old, mature and immature—unites around the wonderful good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Thus this study pays close attention to the gospel as defined in Romans 1–4. In this gospel-rich guide, participants will learn the Bible’s teaching on God, man, Christ, and our response, and see how these things apply to the practice of the local church.

Leading One Another Church Leadership Teaches participants about godly leadership, God’s example as a leader, and how to submit to authority. Because it can be abused, leadership is a risky business for those in it and those under it. But God has good plans for leadership within the church. This study explores God’s plans for authority by focusing on God’s revelation of himself as Shepherd, and how God calls leaders to reflect him. The rest of the study looks at the special responsibilities and roles within the church, fulfilled by elders, deacons, and church members themselves.

This study helps participants have the right perspectives on evangelism and shows them how to go about sharing the good news with others.

Real Change Conversion Explains what God does and what a Christian does in the act of conversion, as well as the personal and corporate implications in being saved. There is great hope in God’s power to change, and everyone needs to be changed. This study explores what God does when he saves a person, answering questions such as: What is the change we need? How does conversion happen? What are the fruits of salvation? Participants will gain a biblical understanding of conversion and the implications both for themselves and for the church.

PETER J. GENTRY AND STEPHEN J. WELLUM

Kingdom through Covenant A Biblical-Theological Understanding of the Covenants Introduces an alternative to covenant theology and dispensationalism that positions the covenant as the key to understanding Scripture’s narrative plot structure. Many theological discussions come to an impasse when parties align behind either covenant theology or dispensationalism. But Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum now propose a significant biblical theology of the covenants that avoids the extremes of both classical systems and holds the potential to break the theological impasse. Kingdom through Covenant is not a system-driven work, but a careful exposition of the covenants as key to the narrative plot structure of the whole Bible. Kingdom through Covenant emphasizes the importance of the covenant concept throughout Scripture, showing that crucial theological differences can be resolved by understanding how the biblical covenants unfold and relate to one another. Rather than looking at covenant as the center of biblical theology, the authors show how the covenants form the backbone of Scripture and the key to understanding its overarching story. They ultimately show that the covenant concept forms a solid platform for systematic theology.

VERN SHERIDAN POYTHRESS

Inerrancy and Worldview Answering Modern Challenges to the Bible Groundbreaking defense of scriptural inerrancy offers a positive case for the Bible’s trustworthiness while implicitly critiquing modern materialist worldviews. Though the Bible presents a personal and relational God, popular modern worldviews portray an impersonal divine force in a purely material world. Readers influenced by this competing worldview hold assumptions about fundamental issues—like the nature of humanity, evil, and the purpose of life—that present profound obstacles to understanding the Bible. In Inerrancy and Worldview, Dr. 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.

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

MICHAEL J. KRUGER

Canon Revisited Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books Exploring the history of the New Testament text from a theological perspective, Michael Kruger helps Christians understand the facts behind their faith and the legitimacy of the New Testament Scriptures. Given the popular-level conversations on phenomena like the Gospel of Thomas and Bart Ehrman’s Misquoting Jesus, as well as the current gap in evangelical scholarship on the origins of the New Testament, Canon Revisited meets a significant need for an up-to-date work on canon by addressing recent developments in the field. Kruger presents an academically rigorous yet accessible study of the New Testament canon that looks deeper than the traditional surveys of councils and creeds, mining the text itself for direction in understanding what the original authors and audiences believed the canon to be. In contrast to the prior volumes on canon, this volume distinguishes itself by placing a substantial focus on the theology of canon as the context within which the historical evidence is evaluated and assessed. In effect, this work successfully unites both the theology and the historical development of the canon, ultimately serving as a practical defense for the authority of the New Testament books.

Enjoying poetry and novels can seem irrelevant and out of touch in a world of texting, tweeting, and blogging. But even in this technological age, literature matters. In his new book Louis Markos invites us into the great conversation that has been taking place in literature through the centuries and illuminates the wisdom and vision to be found there. He offers both a guide to studying and understanding literature and an inspiring look at what it means to think like poets and view the world through literary eyes. Markos discusses the major periods of Western literature, the important approaches of literary criticism, and the postmodern fallacies that have driven students away from great literature instead of toward it. Markos’s approach to literature is firmly grounded in a clear Christian worldview, but his arguments will speak to both Christian and secular readers.

The Liberal Arts A Student’s Guide Series: Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition Lays out the Christian vision behind a liberal arts education that carefully prepares students to pursue their calling. An excellent liberal arts education holds purpose-giving and societyshaping power. In The Liberal Arts, Gene C. Fant Jr. looks at liberal learning through a gospel-oriented lens, arguing that the great thinkers of history were all interacting in some way with how God reveals himself through the realm of knowledge. Fant calls for embracing the best of that past while freshly applying it to today’s world, preparing students for a lifetime of connecting their education to the work God has for them. Fant lays out a vision of education that carefully prepares students to pursue their calling. He outlines the history of liberal arts, responses to its criticisms, and the unselfishness that it fosters. In our global culture, filled with new opportunities for living out the gospel, the liberal arts offer students the foundation they need: a framework based on a belief in transcendence and absolute truth. With that kind of preparation, they can become spiritually and intellectually empathetic people who are equipped to serve God, the church, and their society.

Deuteronomy Loving Obedience to a Loving God Series: Preaching the Word Applies the message of Deuteronomy to Christians today, showing that obedience is a response of love to the God who first loved us. This new volume in the freshly redesigned Preaching the Word series makes the message of Deuteronomy accessible and applicable to Christians today. According to Ajith Fernando, this often-neglected book of the Old Testament holds powerful relevance for Christians grappling with the issue of obeying God in a world that promotes alternative ways of life. Deuteronomy centers around God’s love for Israel and the love he asks for in return; it is the love of God then that is presented as a primary motivation for obedience. Fernando’s insightful exposition is rich with anecdotes from his thirtyfive years of ministry to first-generation Christians in Sri Lanka. Written by a pastor for pastors and their people, this book offers concrete and helpful examples of how the truths contained in Deuteronomy can be applied today. While our culture and the world of the Bible might seem vastly different, even the detailed laws of the Old Testament hold relevance as they continue to reflect the mind and heart of God.

JOHN PIPER

Love Your Enemies Jesus’ Love Command in the Synoptic Gospels and the Early Christian Paraenesis This dissertation work by John Piper provides an in-depth exploration of Jesus’s command to love one’s enemies. From 1971–1974 John Piper attended the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München for doctoral work, where he explored Jesus’s command in the Synoptic Gospels to love one’s enemies, and its relationship to similar ethical exhortations in the epistles (the Early Christian Paraenesis). Using a “history of traditions” approach, Piper begins by examining each New Testament reference to Jesus’s command in an attempt to place its origin within the broader paraenetic tradition. Piper moves on to survey similar exhortations for enemy love in the environment of the early church, then analyzes this particular command of Jesus within the broader context of his whole message. He investigates the theological significance of Jesus’s love command in the paraenesis and finally concludes by focusing on the Gospel tradition’s use of the command, particularly in Matthew and Luke. First published by Cambridge University Press in the Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series, this repackaged edition features a new, extensive introduction.

JOHN PIPER (DTheol, University of Munich) is pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. He has authored dozens of books, including What Jesus Demands from the World, The Future of Justification, and Think.

Preach the Word Essays on Expository Preaching: In Honor of R. Kent Hughes (Paperback Edition) This volume celebrates veteran pastor R. Kent Hughes’s legacy of preaching God’s Word by examining what it means to be an expository preacher. In honor of esteemed pastor R. Kent Hughes, fifteen colleagues from across the globe, including J. I. Packer, Wayne Grudem, John MacArthur, Peter Jensen, and D. A. Carson, examine what it means to be an expository preacher. These contributors address an array of themes for the ministry-minded, such as interpretive principles and practices, biblical and historical paradigms, expository preaching’s contemporary aims and challenges, and the priority of training—all in the expectation that this one man’s passion to preach the Word faithfully will enhance the understanding and practice of expository preaching in churches and seminaries around the world.

PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN

Is Jesus the Only Way? (Redesign) This small, well-reasoned book tackles the four major issues that pluralists find most troublesome within Christianity, ultimately proving that Jesus is indeed the only way. 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 willing to answer some weighty questions. Philip Ryken confronts these questions head-on in this helpful book as he defends the four essential Christian beliefs in clear, everyday terms. This concise resource is a great introduction to the most essential apologetic issue of our time.
