The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus: Luke's Account of God's Unfolding Plan (New Studies in Biblical Theology)

Alan J. Thompson

When the book of Acts is mentioned, a cluster of issues spring to mind, including speaking in tongues and baptism with the Holy Spirit, church government and practice, and missionary methods and strategies. At the popular level, Acts is more often mined for answers to contemporary debates than heard for its natural inflections. Instead of using Acts as a prooftext, this New Studies in Biblical... read more

Sealed with an Oath: Covenant in God's Unfolding Purpose (New Studies in Biblical Theology)

Paul R. Williamson

Paul R. Williamson looks at the role of the covenant concept in Scripture and the meaning of this terminology. He then sets the idea of covenant in the context of God's universal purpose, and traces the idea through Noah and the patriarchs, the nation of Israel and the kingship of David. Lastly, he shows how the new covenant is anticipated in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New. In this... read more

Father, Son and Spirit: The Trinity and John's Gospel (New Studies in Biblical Theology)

Andreas J. Kostenberger, Scott R. Swain

From the patristic period until today, John's Gospel has served as a major source for the church's knowledge, doctrine and worship of the triune God. Among all New Testament documents the Fourth Gospel provides not only the most raw material for the doctrine of the Trinity, but also the most highly developed patterns of reflection on this material―particularly patterns that seek to account in ... read more

Ruth (Apollos Old Testament Commentary)

L. Daniel Hawk

On the surface, the book of Ruth tells the tale of an unlikely marriage between a destitute Moabite widow and an upstanding citizen of a Judean village. The deeper import of the story, however, has to do with the internal boundaries that define the people of God. Is Israel a closed community, held together exclusively by bonds of kinship, or a nation that welcomes faithful outsiders into its s... read more

1 & 2 Samuel (Apollos Old Testament Commentary, Vol. 8)

David G. Firth

The Bible is both a divine and a human book. It is the inspired word of God for his people, whether in biblical times or for the church today. It is also a fully human book, written by different people in a variety of cultural settings. Knowledge of biblical language and society is essential if the meaning of the human writer is to be grasped fully. The Apollos Old Testament Commentary aims to... read more

Exodus (Apollos Old Testament Commentary)

T. Desmond Alexander

Recounting the greatest event of divine salvation in the Old Testament, the book of Exodus is not merely a story about the Lord God rescuing enslaved Israelites from the power of a despotic and xenophobic dictator. More importantly, it highlights how a compassionate and justice-seeking God transforms the lives of victimized people so that they may experience life in all its fullness in his hol... read more

An amazing job! Eldo, worked incredibly hard and pulled things from my mind that I did not know were even there. Thank you so much!

I was daunted by this whole process. Eldo relieved my stress by making me a part of the process. The questions he asked calmed me down, making me realize he was not out to change everything. He was patient and considerate. He did a great job! Thank you so much!
