A New Heavens and A New Earth
Having been completed on September 22nd, 2020, “A New Heavens and New Earth” is about to be released for the first time on November 29th, 2021. The book will be available in both paperback and hardback; digital copies can be obtained for free by subscribing to our newsletter. The book's description on the back reads as follows:
What do you know about the phrase, “new heavens and new earth”? Have you spent time examining its use in both the Old and New Testaments? How do you think Isaiah intended to use the phrase in his message to the people of his day? Do you think that Peter and John are using it in the same manner or in a new way? And, what do you think of Jesus' remark about the “inheriting” of the earth, Peter's remark about the “restitution of all things” and Paul's discussion about the “redemption” of the “creation”? Will “heaven” be on a “renovated earth” or in an otherworldly abode? And, are there some texts that we've read poorly and need to re-examine? If you're interested in the questions above, then this book is for you! Starting with a model of how to read the remarks of the Old Testament prophets and their eschatological perspective, this book provides the reader with a solid, sensible approach, leaving the reader in a comfortable position to read the entire biblical portrait of what we can expect in our future, leading into eternity. So, go ahead, grab your Bible, a pen and some paper and start examining what the Bible has to say on the matter!
The Acts of the Apostles
Have you read about the events that followed the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did you realize that Jesus promised to send “the Comforter” in His place? Had you recognized that the Holy Spirit came and moved the early church to take Jesus' Gospel to the world? And, if you had realized all of that, have you taught the the book of Acts to others before? This book is designed for the Bible class teacher! It will help you analyze the text thoroughly, make sense of the difficult passages and provide questions for thought and discussion. Several books on Acts get “muddy” in discussing historical details and mere facts – and this book does some of that too! – but its thrust is to focus on the theological slant of the text and to help us locate ourselves and our place in the book of Acts! So, grab your Bible, your notepad and a pen and begin a study of the Acts of the Apostles!
