What is the book of Revelation? Does it describe in veiled language events of its writers own day, or is it largely a prophecy of events still to come? Is it a chart of the whole of history from Christs first coming to his second? Or does it deal chiefly with principles which are always valid in Christian experience? And what is a twenty-first century reader to do with living creatures, locusts...
Paul's letter to the young church in Rome has dramatically influenced Christians through the ages. In his letter, Paul gives a complete picture of the gospel – the fullest and grandest in the New Testament. His horizons are vast, taking in time and eternity, the past, present and future of humanity, and the great themes of justification, sanctification and glorification.

This is...

The book of Ruth is a tale of charm and delight. Goethe called it the loveliest complete work on a small scale, handed down to us as an ethical treasure and an idyll. Another writes, No poet in the world has written a more beautiful short story. The books tells us about very ordinary people facing very ordinary events. We meet Naomi, who underwent hardship in famine and bereavement but...
Sonship' is an important biblical theme. Trevor Burke shows how God is making for himself a family of sons and daughters who will serve and reign with him; and this is achieved through Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.

The followers of Jesus are to be different, writes John Stott, different from both the nominal church and the secular world, different from both the religious and the irreligious. The Sermon on the Mount is the most complete delineation anywhere in the New Testament of the Christian counter-culture. Here is a Christian value-system, ethical, standard, religious devotion, attitude to money,...
In unrivalled poetic language, the Song of Songs explores the whole range of emotions experienced by its two lovers as they work out their commitment to each other, consummated in marriage. The Songs powerful and unabashed affirmation of love, loyalty and earthy sexuality is urgently relevant today, when commercialised eroticism is in, and permanency in relationships is out. Tom Gledhill argues...

How can two brief letters to a church in first-century Macedonia speak to us today? John Stott believes that Pauls letters to the Christians in Thessalonica offer three main guidelines to churches at the beginning of the twenty-first century: A model for ministry, as Pauls self-giving, prayerful love for the church challenges Christian leaders. A vision for the local church, as the apostle...
In the small province of Yehud in the sixth century BC, Zechariah the prophet was thoroughly engaged with the realities of his own day, but never closed in by them. He knew that life was to be lived now in the light of the coming day when there would be one LORD, and his name the only name, and when this God would be king over the whole earth (Zech. 14:9). Zechariahs preaching was driven by the...

The Book of Acts, John Stott believes, is important not only for its vivid historical record, but also for the inspiration which it brings to us now. Despite all its imperfections and troubles, the early church clearly had been overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit, who thrust it out to witness.Today's church can seek to recapture something of the early confidence, enthusiasm, vision and power of the...
Luke the Physician was fascinated by people – rich and poor, Jews and Gentiles, men and women, rulers and slaves. In his Gospel, he delights to portray Jesus as the Saviour not of an elite group, but of anyone who turns to him. Jesus is indeed the Saviour of the world.

Luke knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote his Gospel. He tells us his goal in the opening verses: to set...

Andreas Kostenberger's commentary on 1-2 Timothy and Titus explores how these books contribute to the theology of Scripture as a whole. He provides a discussion of introductory matters, including historical setting and literary structure, as well as an exegetical treatment of all the relevant passages in a succinct commentary-style format. The aim is to equip those called by God to preach and...
John Calvin was a practical and pastoral theologian. Like the Apostle Paul he worked tirelessly 'for the sake of the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness' (Titus 1:1). For him knowledge of the truth was for living, and living was for the glory of God.

This book is an abridgement of Calvin's commentary on the Psalms, reducing it to...
