This book helps us consider ways we sometimes miss valuable insights because

Jackson demonstrates how paying attention to East Asian culture provides a

R E L AT I O N S In this third volume of his three-volume Intercultural Theology, Henning
Wrogemann proposes that we need to go beyond currently trending
theologies of mission to formulate both a theory of interreligious relations

In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged between

people of different cultural backgrounds. But educators often struggle to


adapt to the contexts of diverse learners.
In this practical resource, educator and missiologist James Plueddemann
offers field-tested insights for teaching across cultural differences. He
unpacks how different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a
framework for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience. Those
who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations, churches, and
other ministries will find insights for transformational crosscultural learning.

The Holy Spirit is sculpting you. Like the work of an artist who molds a lump

Avoiding either a “Spirit-only” or a “Spirit-void” theology, Leopoldo
Sánchez carefully crafts a Spirit Christology, which considers the role of
God’s Spirit in the life and mission of Jesus. This understanding then serves
as the foundation to articulate five distinct models of sanctification that can
help Christians discern how the Spirit is at work in our lives.

people persevere in their work for God. Believers can rely on the certainties the book proclaims:
God is sovereign over human affairs and is effectively bringing in his eternal kingdom, which
will encompass all nations. In this Tyndale commentary, Paul House shows how Daniel rewards Daniel

The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of the apostle Paul’s greatest evangelistic
successes. However, the church he founded was full of contention. In response, Paul offered
1 Corinthians some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love, and Jesus’ cross and
resurrection. In this Tyndale commentary Thomas Schreiner explains the text of the letter,
highlights its major theological themes, and points to its relevance for today.

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

HOLY BIBLE: NEW LIVING TRANSLATION STANDARD (PEW) EDITION


NLT Anglicized Text Version

The New Living Translation is an authoritative version of Scripture,


rendered faithfully into today’s English by an international team of over
ninety leading biblical scholars.

AVA I L A B L E S E P T E M B E R 1 8 , 2 0 1 8
This translation conveys the message of the original texts in clear, con-
temporary language. Its guiding principle is to render words and phrases
as simply and literally as possible when that approach yields an accurate,
consistent, and natural English text, thus preserving literary devices, meta-
phors, and word choices that give structure and provide meaningful con-
nections between different passages. At the same time, the NLT adopts a
more dynamic approach when the literal English equivalent would be too
obscure or archaic for readers to fully understand.
The result is a translation that is both exegetically accurate and idiomati-
cally powerful, making it eminently suitable for both private and public
use. Most of the translators involved in this work are scholars working
in theological colleges or universities, and all have written books and/
or specialist articles regarding the particular books of the Bible that they
helped to translate.
They represent a rich variety of theological and denominational back-
grounds, united by the common conviction that the Bible is God's Word
and that all people should have a translation of scripture that they can
readily understand. NTL Anglicized Edition

P R A I S E F O R T H E N LT
“The NLT was put together by a dream team of scholars and linguists
and gives us a Bible that is thoroughly reliable and eminently
readable. It allows the Scriptures to speak with fresh vitality.”

The world contains a bewildering variety of religions, and an equally bewildering

TRAVEL
In Tandem with God’s Heart
AVA I L A B L E O C T O B E R 1 8 , 2 0 1 8
Travel has become a booming industry, a top conversation topic, and frankly,
an obsession. But what does God say about travel? Shouldn’t we instead be
doing evangelism? Peter Grier skillfully interweaves his—and others’—traveling
experiences as he applies the Bible’s teaching on this vital subject. Marvel with
him at the generosity of our creator God who has given us this amazing world, and
learn how to make the most of your travels.

P E T E R G R I E R is a traveler at heart who works in an international student


community and travels widely. He is team leader for Christian Unions in Munster
and Connaught, Ireland, and is linked with European networks of IFES.
