BOOK EXCERPT:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham explores the seven last sayings of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels, combining rich historical and theological insights to reflect on the true heart of the Christian story. For Jon Meacham, as for believers worldwide, the events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. A former vestryman of Trinity Church Wall Street and St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, Meacham delves into that intersection of faith and history in this meditation on the seven phrases Jesus spoke from the cross. Beginning with "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do" and ending with "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit," Meacham captures for the reader how these words epitomize Jesus's message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy. For each saying, Meacham composes an essay on the origins of Christianity and how Jesus's final words created a foundation for oral and written traditions that upended the very order of the world. Writing in a tone more intimate than any of his previous works, Jon Meacham returns us to the moment that transformed Jesus from a historical figure into the proclaimed Son of God, worshiped by billions.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A Unique Study of Pauline Eschatology that Is Both Exegetical and Theological One of the trajectories coming out of Constantine Campbell's award-winning book Paul and Union with Christ is the significance of eschatology for the apostle. Along with union with Christ, eschatology is a feature of Paul’s thinking that affects virtually everything else. While union with Christ is the "webbing" that joins Paul's thought together, eschatology provides the "shape" of his thought, and thus gives shape to his teaching about justification, resurrection, the cross, ethics, and so forth. There is considerable debate, however, about Paul's eschatology, asking whether he is a "covenant" or an "apocalyptic" theologian. In Paul and the Hope of Glory Campbell conducts a thorough exegetical study of the relevant elements of Paul's eschatological language, metaphors, and images including "parousia," "the last day," "inheritance," "hope," and others. He examines each passage in context, aiming to build inductively an overall sense of Paul's thinking. The results of this exegetical study then feed into a theological study that demonstrates the integration of Paul's eschatological thought into his overall theological framework. The study is comprised of three parts: The first part introduces the key issues--both exegetical and theological--and sets the parameters and methodology of the book. It also offers an historical survey of the scholarly work produced on Paul's eschatology through the twentieth century to the present day. The second part contains the detailed exegetical analysis, with chapters on each important Pauline phrase, metaphor, and image related to eschatology. The third part turns its attention to theological synthesis. It recapitulates relevant conclusions from the evidence adduced in part two and launches into theological discussion engaging current issues and debates. This volume combines high-level scholarship and a concern for practical application of a topic currently debated in the academy and the church. More than a monograph, this book is a helpful reference tool for students, scholars, and pastors to consult its treatment of any particular instance of any phrase or metaphor that relates to eschatology in Paul's thinking.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Hope is an often-used word. “I hope they win this,” you say about the big game. “I hope I’m not late,” you say before the job interview. At other times, you cling to hope. “I hope I’ll be a good parent,” you whisper to that newborn. “I hope they find out what it is,” you say waiting for test results. We all have hopes. But sometimes they are lost in struggles, burdens, heartaches, and despair. Sometimes, we sink into hopelessness. In Hope of Glory, author and minister Scott White shares a message of hope through Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians. “Faith, hope, and love abide.” Through a mixture of scripture, parables, and personal reflections, White analyzes men and women in the Bible who have found hope and some who have lost it. Hope of Glory encourages you to fill your own lives with faith, fill your days with love, and fill your hearts with hope.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In these last of days, in this dispensation of time, we have more and more religious and irreligious politically correct beliefs being bantered about by the masses. These worldly ideas and viewpoints have crept into our homes, schools, colleges, churches, courts, and government over the centuries of human existence, causing confusion and spiritual frustration. Many seek the truth about God from other men and women who have no personal relationship with God themselves. Friend, I have good news. God is love. He doesn’t have love, He is love, and we were created by love, for love, and this very same God of love desires agape for you!
