AVAILABLE MARCH 2017 SOULMATES Friendship, Fellowship, and the Making of Christian Community DAVID HORN Short Description: What does it mean to develop a sense of true

community in our churches—and how do we get there? In this book for pastors, lay leaders, and parachurch leaders alike, David Horn addresses this question with creativity, authenticity, and pastoral love. Full Description: For all the vast talk about the nature of the church over the years, our understanding of the actual relationship we euphemistically call “Christian community” is rather thin and incomprehensible. Peel away the institutional hard shell around what we understand to be the church and what fleshy relationship lies within? This book seeks to give definition to this utterly unique relationship—let’s call it “fellowship.” It does so in large measure by setting it against the backdrop of another important relationship that serves most often as its chief counterfeit—“friendship.”

REL012010 RELIGION / Christian Life / Death, Grief, Bereavement Target audience: General Christian readers; Christians going through difficult times

The Psalms are the ideal resource to keep someone in contact with God through such times of difficulty. They take pain and trouble seriously, and afford dignity to the sufferer by expressing what we feel in these times. The Psalms even allow negative responses toward God to be voiced in a safe context and take seriously God’s capacity for redemption. In the Psalms, evil and its agents are real, and this allows a measured and God-centered response to those who cause suffering. The chapters in this book cover issues such as: • Despair and loss of faith • Giving voice to anger and complaints to God • The ideas of changing God’s mind and of moving God to act for justice • Regaining a right perspective on issues of security • Moving from lament toward praise and confidence After a career in civil engineering, Simon P. Stocks trained for ministry in the Church of England at Trinity College Bristol. His doctoral thesis analyzed aspects of poetic structure in the Psalms: The Form and Function of the Tricolon in the Psalms of Ascents. Simon joined the South East Institute for Theological Education at Canterbury Christ Church University in 2011 to teach biblical studies and oversee the development of Lay Training Pathways. Simon lives in Purley, South London, where he serves as assistant priest at Christ Church, Purley.

anyone interested in Bonhoeffer studies; scholars, pastors, and educated laity; seminary and graduate students; teachers

Full Description: Reflections on the Bible contains excerpts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s letters, meditations, expositions, sermons, lectures, and seminar papers (translated into English by New Testament scholar M. Eugene Boring). This variety provides a spectrum of approaches to Bonhoeffer’s thoughts on Scripture and its central role in academic study, sermons, teaching, pastoral care, and the conduct of one’s personal life. The topics addressed in this book stretch from Bonhoeffer’s thematic study of the historicalcritical method to his study of selected portions of Psalm 119, which Bonhoeffer regarded “as the crown of a theological life.” In selecting texts for this book, editor Manfred Weber focused on Bonhoeffer’s statements about the Bible and his struggle with those statements—which remain remarkably relevant today for individuals and churches, for Christians and non-Christians. Arranged generally according to the flow of Bonhoeffer’s life of faith, this collection is framed by selections from letters he wrote in 1936—nine years before his execution by the Nazis—beginning with “A Grand Liberation” and ending with “The Answer.” In “The Answer,” Bonhoeffer explains “what it actually means to confess faith in the Bible, the strange place where the strange word of God is heard. Engagement with the Bible involves an intensive seeking and questioning. Without this, the Bible will offer no answer.” “In the Bible it is God who speaks to us. And when it comes to God, one cannot just think things out for oneself; one must ask God. Only when we seek God does he answer.”—Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–1945)

Full Description: Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971), arguably the most influential American theologian since Jonathan Edwards, was the one American who found a comfortable place in a modern Pantheon comprised mainly of Europeans. His doctrine of “sin as pride” has become a modern classic, and he helped many to see how “anxiety” is the matrix for both inordinate self-assertion and sensuality. Not only a brilliant and articulate thinker, Niebuhr was also a deeply compassionate, sensitive human being and an ardent champion of social justice. He remains a model for us today as he teaches us how to communicate the gospel in a secular age. The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series remains a mustread for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their impact on today’s church. Dr. Bob E. Patterson is emeritus professor of religion at Baylor University and general editor of the Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series.

Created in partnership with the Theology of Work Project, it includes Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and guided prayers.

Full Description: Ethics is about knowing and doing what is good or right, and workplace ethics is about knowing and doing what is good or right at work. For the Christian, this means applying the Bible and other resources of the Christian faith to help decide and do what is ethical or moral at work. Three general approaches to ethics have achieved widespread use both in Christian moral thinking and in the world at large: 1. Command—What do the rules say is the right way to act? 2. Consequences—What actions are most likely to bring about the best outcome? 3. Character—What kind of moral person do I want to be or become?

What distinguishes Christian ethics is not that it uses different approaches, but that it brings biblical values into each of these approaches. There are biblical commands (also called principles), biblically desired outcomes and biblical character traits (also called virtues) that Christians need to bring into their moral decisions, actions and development. In developing a Christian ethic, we will consider what help the Bible provides for each of these approaches. Then we’ll explore whether we might need to combine these three in some way to give us a more balanced and integrated approach. Finally, we’ll consider how to live with the reality that our world is fallen, or imperfect, and that there is almost never a perfect solution. These Bible studies are part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well. Target audience: Both white-collar and blue-collar professionals; globally and gender diverse; pastors, professors, professionals and laypeople; anyone who works in any capacity.

In addition, the Luther text set binding standards for dealing with the biblical word.

This print is a replica of the 1545 Luther Bible, of which only two originals are left. This replica maintains the numerous wood cuts, headings, and explanatory notes of Luther.

REL058010 RELIGION / Sermons / Christian Target audience: General Christian trade; pastors and church leaders

Short Description: This collection is a fine sampling of Jonathan Edwards’s revival sermons during his time in Northampton and Stockbridge, calling for repentance and amendment of life. Each one is a brilliant and personal invitation to know God both through our intellect and through our affections. These are sermons that challenge our minds, but also, and perhaps more importantly, compel us to open our hearts to the sweet love and joy available to us in our life in Christ. Full Description: Jonathan Edwards is primarily remembered today as a gifted and influential theologian. But in eighteenth-century America, his preaching resounded from pulpits throughout New England, sparking the flame of revival that became the “Great Awakening.” As the flame of this Puritan pastor and preacher of revival spread far and wide, his sermons galvanized many of his listeners into reexamining their lives and faith. Ever alert to the dangers of the religiously complacent—those who only observed the surface requirements of religion—Edwards tirelessly proclaimed the overpowering majesty and grandeur of God, and humanity’s hopelessness for moral improvement short of his grace. This stirring selection of his best “Revival Sermons” allows readers to experience the words that swept through this young nation with a message of repentance and a call to action. Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) began his education at Yale College when he was thirteen years old. He served as pastor of the Congregational Church in Northampton, Massachusetts, for over twenty years, and his published sermons were widely circulated throughout America and England. He also served as a missionary to native Americans, and he was called to be president of the College of New Jersey (Princeton) just prior to his untimely death.
