Bread of Life: Savoring the All-Satisfying Goodness of Jesus through the Art of Bread Making

Abigail Dodds

In Bread of Life, Abigail Dodds—an avid baker and mother of 5—invites readers to ponder and celebrate God’s spiritual and physical provision in Christ through the hands-on art of bread making. Offering readers easy-to-follow directions for everything from focaccia to chocolate babka along with full-color photographs throughout, this unique book is an enriching blend of devotional meditations and recipes that invites readers to ponder the true bread of life as they bake for their families and friends.

Bread of Life gave me the tools and motivation to get my hands covered in flour and my family feasting on fresh-baked bread. But Abigail’s words go far beyond baking—she compels me to eat and enjoy the bread of life himself. This book is for women who are hungry for something this world hasn’t been able to provide—who want to cultivate an appetite that can taste the Lord’s goodness without an undertone of cynicism, scoffing, and suspicion. I’m so grateful for the words of this sage older sister in Christ.”
Emily Jensen, coauthor, Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments; Cofounder and Content Director, Risen Motherhood

The Septuagint: What It Is and Why It Matters

Gregory R. Lanier and William A. Ross

Most people think that the Septuagint—the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament—is only for scholars. But understanding even the basics about the Septuagint is helpful for academics and laypeople alike. In this book, scholars Gregory R. Lanier and William A. Ross examine what the Septuagint is and why Christians should care about it.

“It is good to have Lanier and Ross as reliable guides to the tricky but fascinating domain of the Greek Old Testament. Their short introduction is a rare achievement: introducing the complexities behind the term ‘Septuagint’ in a simple way without compromising accuracy. An excellent book.”
Peter J. Williams, Principal, Tyndale House, Cambridge

The Joy of Hearing: A Theology of the Book of Revelation

Thomas R. Schreiner

The book of Revelation can feel more intimidating to read than other books of the Bible. It invites readers into a world that seems confusing and sometimes even strange: golden lampstands, seven seals, a dragon, and a rider on a white horse. But at its core, Revelation is a message of hope written to Christians facing hardship, and it’s worth the effort to read it and understand it. In this first volume in the New Testament Theology series, trusted scholar Thomas Schreiner walks step-by-step through the book of Revelation, considering its many themes.

“Tom Schreiner has provided a lucid and well-balanced overview of the book of Revelation—no small feat! He draws on the best contemporary scholarship treating the book but does not burden the reader with excessive scholarly debate. He is clear in his own convictions but charitable to those with whom he disagrees, and he is honest enough to admit when a given text remains perplexing. Anyone looking to understand the Apocalypse will greatly benefit from Schreiner’s discussion.”
Sean M. McDonough, Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, YHWH at Patmos

After Emmaus: How the Church Fulfills the Mission of Christ

Brian Tabb

In After Emmaus, Brian J. Tabb uses Luke 24:46–47 as a springboard to answer the question: Did the Old Testament simply point to Christ and his coming as Messiah, or is there more to the story? Laying the foundation with the books of Luke and Acts, Tabb encourages readers to study their Bibles with greater attentiveness to discover how the story of redemption foretold in the Old Testament is fulfilled in Christ, is reflected in the apostles’ ministry, and continues today through the mission of the church.

“Brian Tabb takes us back to the sources, showing us the fulfillment of the Scriptures in Jesus’s ministry. What stands out is the relationship between Christology and mission. Often these two themes are studied separately, but Tabb shows us that they are intertwined. This deft and insightful study shines a fresh light on what God accomplished through his Spirit in Christ, and it inspires us today when we recognize that God’s great promises are still being fulfilled.”
Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Be Thou My Vision: A Liturgy for Daily Worship

Jonathan Gibson

Every Christian knows the importance of a daily quiet time with the Lord. But anyone who’s been a believer long enough has likely experienced seasons that feel more mundane or routine, leading to aimlessly skimming a couple of Bible verses or praying the same prayer over and over. In Be Thou My Vision, Jonathan Gibson has created a 31-day liturgical guide designed to provide structure to the daily worship of individuals and families.

“Jonny Gibson’s new liturgical guide to personal or family worship is a gem! Evangelicals need enrichment of the ‘daily quiet time,’ which has traditionally been little more than Bible study and intercessory prayer. While many have turned to a variety of traditions that are less than gospel- or word-centered, in Be Thou My Vision Jonny connects us to the Reformation’s historic forms of prayer and confession, catechesis, and the lectio continua reading of Scripture. It’s a feast, and while providing only thirty-one days of different prayers, I believe the book can be profitably used all year, and year after year. Get it and use it!”
—Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

Nine Marks of a Healthy Church (4th Edition)

Mark Dever

There is no such thing as a perfect church—but there is such a thing as a healthy church. So what distinguishes a healthy church from an unhealthy one? Now in its fourth edition, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is designed to walk readers through this very question.

“I don't remember who put Nine Marks of a Healthy Church in my hand almost twenty years ago, but it’s a resource that shaped me deeply. I return to it frequently as I try to faithfully shepherd at the Village Church and plant healthy churches through Acts 29. The church needs a strong ecclesiology if she will faithfully fulfill her God-given mission, and this book is a foundational read for pastors across denominations and philosophies of ministry.”
Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church
