Small Faith—Great God
N. T. Wright
Our faith is rarely equal to life’s big challenges. Here N. T. Wright, one of the
world’s premier Bible teachers, shifts our point of emphasis from faith itself to who
our faith is in.
Describing faith as a window in our hearts, Wright reminds us that faith is the power
to see our situation by the light of a powerful, holy and loving God. He shows us how
God beckons the faithful to be constructive citizens of the world, to speak truth with-
out hypocrisy and to submit to one another in love. And through it all he reminds us,
it’s not great faith we need: it is faith in a great God.
Written in the same readable style as The New Testament for Everyone series •
Author Information N. T. Wright, formerly bishop of Durham in
England, is research professor of New Testament and early Christianity
at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Among his many other
published works are The Challenge of Jesus, Evil and the Justice of God,
Justification, Surprised by Hope and Simply Christian.

The Dangerous Act of Loving Your
Neighbor
Seeing Others Through the Eyes of Jesus
Mark Labberton
Jesus didn’t see a sick woman, he saw a daughter of God. He didn’t see an outcast
from society, he saw a citizen of Israel.
Mark Labberton asks us to consider how much damage we do by misperceiving—
how we tend to see threats or inconveniences rather than people. Beginning with a
discipline of self-examination, Labberton prepares us for a change of heart that will
have powerful repercussions in our world. How different things will look when we see
through the eyes of Jesus.
Applies personal insights to global problems •
Includes reflection questions with each chapter •
Author Information Mark Labberton (Ph.D., University of Cambridge)
is Lloyd John Ogilvie Chair for Preaching and director of the Lloyd
John Ogilvie Institute for Preaching at Fuller Theological Seminary in
Pasadena, California. He is a senior fellow of the International Justice
Mission and the author of The Dangerous Act of Worship.

“Mark’s manner with his reader is at the same
time gracious and incisive, invoking careful
consideration of the assumptions and broken
perceptions that lead us away from the heart
of God—and above all, compelling us to a
restored perception of the image of God in
every human being. This is a book you will
want to spend considerable time ingesting,
and as you do so, you are sure to be changed.”
—Gary A. Haugen, president and CEO,

“Here is a book to heal the demonic split
between private religion and public action.
Eloquent and subversive, intelligent and

Richard J. Mouw

Can Christians act like Christians even when they disagree? Few if any people in the
evangelical world have conversed as widely and sensitively as Richard Mouw. That’s

on the issues that matter most.
Thoroughly updated and revised throughout •

Seminary in Pasadena, California. Before coming to Fuller in 1985 as

faithfully into the postmodern world of the twenty-first century.
Now included in this special edition is the 50-minute DVD Resurrection, shot on

serious study, uncomfortable as that may be.
. . . A refreshing and inspiring read for those
who take both conservative faith and historical
scholarship seriously. Recommended for
academic and public libraries.”

Contemplative Vision
A Guide to Christian Art and Prayer
Juliet Benner
While working as a docent in an art gallery, Juliet Benner began showing people
how to meditate on Christian works of art that are rooted in a passage of Scripture.
She taught a way of encountering the Word behind both the words of Scripture and
the artist’s meditation on Scripture. This became a way of seeing art as an aid to
contemplative prayer.
This process resulted in her much-beloved “O Taste and See” columns that ap-
peared in the journal Conversations, now expanded into this guide for prayer.
Includes four-color art throughout! •
Includes reflection guide •
Author Information Juliet Benner is much in demand as a retreat and
workshop leader, with travel in recent years taking her to Singapore,
Malaysia, Norway, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines,
Hong Kong and Indonesia. She also serves as a consultant in art and
spirituality at the Carey Centre of the University of British Columbia
(Vancouver).

Souls in Full Sail
A Christian Spirituality for the Later Years
Emilie Griffn
“Sometime in our spiritual travels, as a complete surprise, we notice it has become
winter. . . . This change has occurred, it seems, without preparation, without fair
warning.”
So Emilie Griffin begins, taking us on an exploration of our later years. It is a book
filled with refined spiritual exercises and wisdom from the past. She explores reloca-
tion, vocational changes, losing parents, and relationships with grown children.
The journey of our later years is a wondrous voyage, though turbulent at points. But
it is, as Emilie Griffin reminds us, the journey we have been preparing for all along.
Combines the wisdom of a spiritual director and the writing style of a poet •
Author Information Emilie Griffin is the author of a number of books
including Wonderful and Dark Is This Road and Doors Into Prayer: An
Invitation. Emilie is on the board and speaking team of RenovaRé. She
and her husband, William, are founding members of the Chrysostom
Society, a national group for writers of the Christian faith.

Experiencing God’s Transforming Presence
Ruth Haley Barton
Foreword by Dallas Willard
expanded edition! over 35,000 copies sold!

his voice. This book is an invitation to meet God outside the demands and noise of
daily life. It is an invitation to solitude and silence. This expanded edition includes a
guide for group discussion or the group practice of silence.
Individual reflection guide at the end of each chapter •
Clearly explains classic spiritual disciplines •
Author Information Ruth Haley Barton is a spiritual director, teacher,
author and retreat leader trained at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual

Mobilizing Hope
Faith-Inspired Activism for a Post-Civil Rights Generation
Adam Taylor
Foreword by Jim Wallis
Martin Luther King Jr. read the words of the apostle Paul—“Be transformed by the
renewing of your mind”—as a call not to retreat from the world but to lead the world
into the kingdom of God, where peace and justice reign. King participated in a godly
revolution of civil rights and human dignity. Adam Taylor draws parallels between
that movement of faith and the activities of today’s transformed nonconformists who
are continuing God’s work of reconciliation and love.
Educates readers about a variety of contemporary social issues •
Includes firsthand accounts of successful faith-inspired justice initiatives •
Author Information Adam Taylor has widespread experience in issues
of social justice and human rights, from working on urban housing
in New York and AIDS issues in Zambia, to organizing events for the
Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, and mobilizing young people and
professionals through his organization Global Justice. He is the former
political director of Sojourners and is currently serving in a fellowship at
the White House.

The Story of God, the Story of Us
Getting Lost and Found in the Bible
Sean Gladding
Sean Gladding takes us between the lines of the Scriptures to the fireside conversa-
tions of a people in exile, to the whispered wonderment of people who had found
the Messiah. We gain fresh insights into the origins of the Christian faith and fresh
appreciation for the stories that have sustained a faith for millennia.
Meant to be read in private or shouted in public, here is an account of the Scriptures
that introduces us to people who remind us of ourselves, because as much as the
Bible is a story about God, it’s also a story about us.
Works well for private reading or public presentation •
Author Information Sean Gladding is part of Communality, a missional
community in Lexington, Kentucky, that serves as one of the host
“schools for conversion” for the New Monasticism. There Sean and
his wife, Rebecca, acclimate guests and new participants to life in
community, provide pastoral care for the community members and curate
the weekly fellowship gathering.

Living Mission
The Vision and Voices of New Friars
Edited by Scott A. Bessenecker
Foreword by Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
There is a new trend afoot, one that goes against the prevailing Western model,
influenced by the values and principles of international commerce. Presented here
are five “signs of life,” showcased by this network of movements best referred to as
“new friars.” With a survey of the history of new friar movements and commentary
by forerunner Viv Grigg, this seminal book, edited by Scott A. Bessenecker, paints a
picture of mission that is new only because it has been neglected for so long, a mis-
sion that is truly good news to the people in its path.
Includes firsthand accounts of incarnational mission throughout the world •
offers an introduction to the next generation of worldwide Christian mission •
Editor Information Each year Scott Bessenecker helps send over two
thousand college students to nearly every continent on earth as the
associate director of missions for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.

learn from John’s Gospel what it means to be called friends of love, what it means to
put love to death, what it means to see love rise again and bid us to follow.
Gives culturally savvy readings of the Gospel of john •
Thoroughly reviewed by New Testament scholars •
offers points of connection for preaching and devotional reading •

Defending Constantine
The Twilight of an Empire and the Dawn of Christendom
Peter J. Leithart
We know that Constantine issued the Edict of Milan in 313, outlawed paganism
and made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire, manipulated the
Council of Nicea in 325, and co-opted the church for the aims of empire. Or do we
know these things?
By focusing on these historical mirages, argues Peter Leithart, we have failed to
notice the true significance of Constantine and Rome baptized. For beneath the
surface of this contested story emerges a deeper narrative of the end of Roman
sacrifice—a tectonic shift in the political theology of an empire.

Gives a trenchant critique of the notion of Constantinianism •
Author Information Peter J. Leithart (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) is
a senior fellow at New St. Andrews College, Moscow, Idaho, and a pastor
of Trinity Reformed Church in Moscow. He is the author of several books,
including Deep Exegesis, Solomon Among the Postmoderns and 1 & 2
Kings in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible.

The Resurrection of Jesus
A New Historiographical Approach
Michael R. Licona
After all the debate over the historicity of Jesus’ resurrection, could there be any new
approach to the problem? Michael Licona believes there is, and he points us to the
major flaw in previous efforts: our historiographical orientation and practice. Here is
a study with an extensive consideration of historiography and the particular problem
of investigating claims of miracles. Future approaches to dealing with this “prize
puzzle” of New Testament study will need to be routed through The Resurrection of
Jesus.
Provides an up-to-date treatment of New Testament historiography •
offers fair and critical analysis of the major hypotheses •
Author Information Michael R. Licona (Ph.D., University of Pretoria) is
research professor of New Testament at Southern Evangelical Seminary
and apologetics coordinator at the North American Mission Board. He
has engaged in public debate with Bart Ehrman, Elaine Pagels and
numerous others. He is the coauthor with Gary Habermas of the award-
winning book The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus.

The Drama of Ephesians
Participating in the Triumph of God
Timothy G. Gombis
Timothy Gombis has rediscovered Ephesians as a dramatic text that follows the nar-
rative arc of the triumph of God in Christ. In Gombis’s reading we are drawn into a
theological and cultural engagement with an epochal story of redemption.
The Drama of Ephesians stands in the scantly occupied shelf space between com-
mentaries and specialized studies in Ephesians, giving us a unified and dynamic
perspective on this classic text. It is a book that will renew your excitement for
studying, preaching and teaching this great letter of Paul.

Science, Creation and the Bible
Reconciling Rival Theories of Origins
Richard F. Carlson, Tremper Longman III
Richard Carlson and Tremper Longman address the long-standing problem of how to
relate scientific descriptions of the beginnings of the universe with the biblical cre-
ation passages of Genesis. Properly interpreting the biblical texts and clearly identi-
fying the nature of scientific claims are key. With those in hand we see how Christian
revelation and scientific findings can collaborate in the investigation of origins.
Written by a physicist and a biblical scholar •
Author Information Richard F. Carlson (Ph.D., University of Minnesota)
is research professor of physics at the University of Redlands in
Redlands, California. He was formerly a visiting scientist in the

Images of Salvation in the
New Testament
Brenda B. Colijn
“The New Testament does not develop a systematic doctrine of salvation,” writes
Brenda Colijn. “Instead, it presents us with a variety of pictures taken from different
perspectives.” Colijn, who holds degrees in English literature as well as theology,
embraces a critical-realist methodology that incorporates New Testament theology,
literary criticism and theological interpretation. As the author seeks to understand
their implications for people of faith, she uncovers how New Testament images pro-
vide the building blocks of the master story of redemption.

Engaging with Early and Medieval Theologians

These essays offer insightful analysis of and commentary on eight key theologians,
from Irenaeus to Aquinas, along with critical assessment of how evangelicals should
view and appropriate the insights of these thinkers. The intention of the contribu-
tors is, as Augustine says, to cultivate minds “fired by the grace of our creator and
savior” so that we might think well and rightly about our good and great God and live
in his light.

Why Business Matters to God
(And What Still Needs to Be Fixed)
Jeff Van Duzer
This book explores the nature and meaning of doing business and finds it calls for
much more than most think. Jeff Van Duzer presents a profoundly Christian ap-
proach that integrates biblical studies with the disciplines of business and econom-
ics. Looking beyond the place of ethical principles and the character of the indi-
vidual, Van Duzer displays a vision of business that contributes to the very purposes
of God.
Uses an interdisciplinary approach drawing on biblical studies, theology and the •
disciplines of business and economics
Provides an alternate paradigm to the existing emphasis on maximizing profits •
Author Information Jeff Van Duzer is dean of the School of Business and
Economics and professor of business law and ethics at Seattle Pacific
University. For twenty years prior to that, Van Duzer practiced law in
Seattle with an emphasis on finance and natural resources. He writes
and speaks frequently in both church and professional settings.

Worship and the Reality of God
An Evangelical Theology of Real Presence
John Jefferson Davis
John Jefferson Davis offers a theology of worship that uncovers the most funda-
mental barriers to our vital involvement in the worship of our holy God. Obstacles to
true worship are not about contemporary or traditional music, electronic gadgetry or
seeker sensitivity. Rather it is the habits of mind and heart, conditioned by our sur-
rounding culture, that hinder our faith in the real presence of the transcendent God
among his people. His theological analysis leads to fresh and bracing recommenda-
tions that will be especially helpful to all those who lead worship.
offers a complete theology of worship •
moves beyond “worship wars” issues of music and technology •
Author Information John Jefferson Davis is professor of systematic
theology and Christian ethics at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
He has published for many years in both theological and scientific
journals. He is the winner of several Templeton Foundation awards,
including the Award for Quality and Excellence in the Teaching of
Science and Religion (1998).

Theology Remixed
Christianity as Story, Game, Language, Culture
Adam C. English
Jesus didn’t tell parables because he lacked the right words. Parables were the exact
way Jesus intended to communicate. What pictures or analogies today can give us
greater understanding of the Christian faith? Adam English finds fresh insight in
four: Christianity as story, game, language, culture. No one analogy is complete, but
all offer new windows of appreciation for the faith.
English gives us a fresh representation of Christian theology that is neither modern
nor postmodern, but in dialogue with both in order to articulate what we believe.

Author Information Adam C. English (Ph.D., Baylor University) is
an assistant professor in the department of religion and philosophy
at Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina. He is an

Robert Fyall

Ezra and Haggai are rarely preached. But the message of these books, and their
emphasis on building for God and the need of obedience to his Word and openness
to his Spirit, is one which needs to be heard clearly today.
This commentary by Robert Fyall highlights the contemporary parallels of the chal-
lenges Israel faced to those of today’s church and demonstrates the relevance of the
books of Ezra and Haggai for God’s people in all times.
Includes passage-by-passage exposition of the biblical text •
Author Information Robert Fyall is director of Rutherford House, a research, training
and publishing center in Scotland for church leaders. He formerly taught Old
Testament at St. John’s College in Durham, England, as well as pastored a church

The Message of Obadiah, Nahum &
Zephaniah
Gordon Bridger
more in the bible speaks today series!
Gordon Bridger puts forward compelling reasons to study and apply the Old Testa-
ment prophets Obadiah, Nahum and Zephaniah. As messages that were themselves
in touch with the social and political issues of their day, these books exemplify
investment in spiritual and moral issues. Among them: sleaze amongst political
leaders, unfaithfulness of religious leaders, national pride, crimes against humanity
and persecution.
Hence, these challenging books tackle themes and issues which are especially rel-
evant to today’s church and world.
Part of the acclaimed bible Speaks Today commentary series •
Author Information Now retired, Canon Gordon Bridger ministered in churches in
London, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Norwich, and was Principal of Oak Hill College,
London, from 1987 to 1996. He is a member of the preaching team at Cromer
Parish Church, Norfolk, England.

1 Corinthians
Alan F. Johnson
a new paperback edition!
First-century Corinth and its challenges were not so different from our own. Up-
wardly mobile Christians facing radically diverse ethnic, religious, economic and
social conditions. The church divided over issues of leadership and authority, sexual
morality, gender and worship, marriage and divorce. Sound familiar?
Yet as Alan Johnson highlights in this excellent commentary, in the midst of this
detailed, practical letter to a church in crisis Paul has penned one of the greatest
paeans to love ever written. And, of course, love is just what is needed to address
complex human issues—whether in the first century or the twenty-first.
Now in paperback! •

Author Information Alan F. Johnson (Th.D., Dallas Theological Seminary) is emeritus
professor of New Testament and Christian ethics at Wheaton College and Graduate
