Welcome to day 1 of Bible Geek Gone Wild’s 3rd Annual 12 Days Before Christmas. Today’s contest is sponsored by InterVarsity Press. Today’s prize pack includes the following:
Reclaiming the Old Testament for Christian Preaching – Edited by Grenville J. R. Kent,
Paul J. Kissling and Laurence A. Turner
This stimulating volume offers guidance for expository preaching and practical suggestions for understanding the message of its diverse literature. A vital final chapter on preaching Christ from the Old Testament is included.
The contributors are internationally respected evangelical Old Testament scholars, from a wide range of church traditions and global regions, who are also active in preaching. They issue a call to use all the Bible’s rich resources in preaching the good news of the kingdom of God.
“This book offers a thorough discussion of the various tasks facing the Christian preacher in proclaiming the gospel from the pages of the Old Testament. Particularly unique among recent treatments of this sort is the fact that each of the contributors is a noted Old Testament professor, scholar and proven preacher in his or her own right.” —John H. Sailhamer, author of The Meaning of the Pentateuch
The Gospel of John: When Love Comes to Town – By Paul Louis Metzger, Foreword by Leonard Sweet, Afterword by Rick McKinley
The Resonate series recovers the ancient wisdom of Scripture and helps us understand how it resonates with our complex world. The stories and insights of each book of the Bible are brought into conversation with contemporary voices of hope and lament–the cultural messages we interact with on a daily basis. The Scriptures become a meeting ground where God speaks to the pressing concerns of our day, and we are confronted in turn with a fresh experience of God’s truth.
In this journey through the Gospel of John, Paul Louis Metzger wrestles with the question of what happens when God, who is love, comes to town and takes up residence among us. For some this new neighbor love is welcome; for others, unusual; for still others, suspect–even dangerous.
We learn from John’s Gospel what it means to be called friends and lovers of God, what it means to put love to death and what it means for love to rise again in our midst and in our lives.
