AVA I L A B L E S E P T E M B E R 2 5 , 2 0 1 8

crafted introduction to the New Testament has been long established as an
authoritative textbook and resource for students. This beautiful, full-color
second edition has been updated throughout with new scholarship and
numerous images.
Not only does this textbook outline historical, social, cultural, and rhetorical
contexts, but it also points students preparing for ministry to relevant facets
of biblical interpretation. Brimming with maps, photos, points of interest,
and aids to learning, this is the first choice for those who want to integrate
scholarship and ministry.

Do the writings of the church fathers support a literalist interpretation of

Genesis 1? Young-earth creationists have maintained that they do. But are
we correctly representing the Fathers and their concerns?
Craig Allert notes the abuses of patristic texts and introduces the Fathers
within their ancient context, since the patristic writings require careful
interpretation in their own setting. This study resets our understanding
of early Christian interpretation and considers whether contemporary
evangelicals may be more bound to modernity in our reading of Genesis 1
than we realize.

Did Mark write his Gospel in response to Roman imperial propaganda sur-
rounding the destruction of Jerusalem? However else they might function,
are Mark’s themes and christological titles coded subversions of empire?
Adam Winn helps us rediscover how Mark might have been read by
Christians in Rome during the aftermath of this cataclysmic event. He
introduces us to the imperial propaganda of the Flavian emperors and
excavates the Markan text for themes that address the Roman imperial
setting. Here is an intriguing look into a first-century response to the
question: Christ or Caesar?

CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON


Reconsidering Paul's Theology of Glory in Romans

With its soaring affirmations and profound statements of salvation in Christ,

AVA I L A B L E J U LY 1 7, 2 0 1 8
Romans 8 is a high point in Pauline theology. But what does Paul mean
when in 8:29 he speaks of being “conformed to the image of his Son”?
Is it a moral or spiritual or sanctifying conformity to Christ, or to his suffering,
or does it point to an eschatological transformation into radiant glory?
Haley Goranson Jacob points out that the key lies in the meaning of glory
in Paul’s biblical-theological perspective and in how he uses the language
of glory in Romans. This is a study that makes a strong bid to reorient our
understanding of Paul’s classic statement of the goal of salvation.

then draws helpful comments for contemporary reflection.

IAN PAUL is a freelance theologian, writer, speaker, adjunct professor of New Testament at Fuller

SELF-SUPPORTING MINISTRY
A Practical Guide

The distinctive contribution of volunteer clergy has never been more


important to the church than it is today.

AVA I L A B L E J U N E 5 , 2 0 1 8
Sometimes underused, sometimes overworked, volunteer ministers may
feel unrecognized and under-supported, with church leaders making wrong
assumptions about their ability and willingness to be involved.

John Lees’s lively, authoritative guide—featuring many stories and case


studies—will be welcomed by those already involved in, and those
considering, self-supporting ministry.

SOLITUDE
Memories, People, Places

After enduring nearly five years of solitary confinement, in cruel and


terrifying conditions, Terry Waite discovered that he was drawn to find

AVA I L A B L E J U N E 5 , 2 0 1 8
out more about the power of solitude in the lives of other people. In this
haunting book he recalls his encounters with people who have experienced
some very different ways of being solitary: the peaceful solitude of remote
and beautiful places, the often unnoticed solitude of lonely people living in
the midst of busy cities, the deceptive solitude of those living in the world
of espionage, the enforced solitude of the convict and the prisoner of war,
and finally the inescapable solitude of those who are drawing near to death.

Navigating the Adventure of Spiritual Growth

The Bible offers a bracingly realistic account of how the disciples, as


flawed characters, frequently resisted or grappled with the challenge—
AVA I L A B L E A U G U S T 7, 2 0 1 8

and often pain—of spiritual growth.

This book offers an honest and transparent account of the challenges of


personal change, illustrating these with stories from personal testimony
and church history. Tracking the journey of the disciples from Gethsemane
until the aftermath of Pentecost, this book is a credible and authentic
account of spiritual growth for a new generation.

WHEN DARKNESS SEEMS MY CLOSEST FRIEND
Reflections on Life and Ministry with Depression

When Mark Meynell spoke in a central London church, more than 1,500
people hung on to his every word. What they didn't know was that

AVA I L A B L E J U LY 1 0 , 2 0 1 8
their minister was terrified of being laid bare in public, one of the most
devastating elements of his depression.

Mark invites us into the darkness of his cave. We relive significant moments
from boarding school, Uganda, Berlin, and London. We visit the psalms,
Job, and Pilgrim’s Progress. If you’re after neat conclusions and a fair-
weather faith, this is not for you. This book serves up gritty reality and raw
honesty, but also heartfelt hope.
