How to Stay Christian in Seminary should be placed in the hands of every first-year seminarian. It provides a much-needed balance as they navigate the beautiful but treacherous waters of a seminary education.

The Final Days of Jesus: The Most Important Week of the Most Important Person Who Ever Lived 

By Andreas J. Köstenberger, Justin Taylor, With Alexander Stewart

E-book: $13.99 $5.99

Combining a chronological arrangement of the biblical text with insightful commentary, this book serves as a day-by-day guide to Jesus’s final week on earth, complete with a quick-reference glossary and color maps.

“You may be wondering what can be done to make Christ’s last week come alive in ways it hasn’t before. It would help to understand the historical background and cultural script a little better, but you don’t want a big book. It would help, too, if your authors were trustworthy, knowledgeable evangelical scholars who could write clearly for laypeople. Look no further—this is the book for you!”

Jesus’ Blood and Righteousness: Paul’s Theology of Imputation

By Brian Vickers

E-book: $11.99 $1.99

New Testament professor Brian Vickers shows that the doctrine of imputation isn’t just a subject for academic debate; it strikes at the heart of what it means to be right with God.

“With great clarity Dr. Vickers bases his theological conclusions on careful, contextual study of the Scriptures. And he does all of this with a gentle spirit that refuses to demonize those who disagree with him. I heartily commend this volume as a needed, constructive, and helpful piece of theological exegesis.”

By Bruce A. Ware

E-book: $12.99 $1.99

Jesus faced all the challenges that we face as humans, and yet he remained faithful to his Father through the power of the Holy Spirit. Ware helps us to explore Christ’s nature and to learn, through the same Spirit, to follow in His steps.

“This delightful study of Jesus Christ the man probes deep and complex truths with a lucid clarity designed for ordinary Christian readers. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter promise that the book will be used widely in churches where one of the passions is to understand historic Christian truth in a fashion that is biblically faithful and spiritually nourishing.”
