Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry's classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God's word. Four centuries after its first publication, it remains one of the best-loved, most popular commentaries ever written. However, while its wisdom is timeless, the English language has changed much through the years. Words that meant one thing in Matthew Henry's day have taken on different meanings today. In addition, Henry's often wordy reflections are generations removed from the crisp style that communicates most effectively to contemporary readers. The Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary is a masterful response to these concerns. It delivers the heart and soul of Henry's incomparable writings in a style that is easy to read and understand. -Dr. Leslie Church's meticulous abridgment retains the essential content of the original work. - Easily misunderstood words have been replaced with modern ones while keeping Henry's style. - Use of the New International Version (NIV) instead of the King James Version makes this edition fully compatible with today's most widely used Bible translation. In one volume, here is a wealth of exposition, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations, ideal for - Personal devotions - Bible study - Sermon and lesson preparation

The doctrine of predestination is an important starting point for the study of Christian theology thought from a Reformed theological perspective. This doctrine is essential because it is one of the central themes from the Bible that has been the reason for many debates among many theologians in the history of the church. Despite the different views held by mainline Protestant theologians like Martin Luther, John Calvin, and Jacobus Arminus, this book points to Scripture as the basis for Reformed soteriology. It uses the tools of biblical interpretation to show how the entire Bible addresses the doctrine of predestination so that theology students, pastors, Bible teachers, and anyone interested in Christian theology will better understand predestination from a Reformed perspective toward an effective ministry today.

Thus Spoke the Preacher By: Rudolph V. Vanterpool “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” This startling beginning to the Book of Ecclesiastes has troubled and confused scholars for thousands of years. How could the Bible espouse such a nihilistic view of the life God has created for us? Rudolph V. Vanterpool examines this question forcefully and passionately in Thus Spoke the Preacher: Solomon’s Cosmic Gaze from Under the Sun. Written by the wisdom-gifted King Solomon, Ecclesiastes is an important part of the Bible’s Wisdom literature. Solomon begins by probing the conclusions that people come to based upon their personal observations and knowledge. We are all filled with longings for peace and justice that this earthly world with its fleshly comforts cannot satisfy. If mortality is vanity, then how do we find meaning? By remembering that we are mortal beings from the standpoint of our temporal lives, our bodily existence is only a season while our indwelling soul never dies. When we turn our gaze from the world around us to the Heavenly realm, we will find the answer to our needs. Thus Spoke the Preacher is no dry academic tome. Instead, it is a lively, personal, and searching study for God’s presence in our world. We have not been abandoned in a maze of despair. Solomon is not a prophet of doom – he is a prophet of hope, showing us the way out of existential cruelty. Solomon’s own writings on power, wealth, and the nature of death presage Jesus’ own teachings of our rightful place in the world. How to find meaning in a seemingly arbitrary world has plagued humanity for millennia. Vanterpool reminds us if we truly listen and really look, we will find our answer. “Some scholars see philosophy and scripture as rivals, or opposing ways of pursuing truth. Not Rudolph V. Vanterpool. In his new book he combines philosophical insight with biblical exegesis, giving an expansive view of the wisdom articulated in the book of Ecclesiastes. Vanterpool draws on decades of reading the philosophical tradition as well as a range of biblical scholorship, popular Christian spirituality, and even an evident love for comic strips. Thus Spoke the Preacher will be illuminating for those on a philosophical path, those on the path of faith, and those for whom these two callings converge.” - Dr. Brian Gregor, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, California State University, Dominguez Hills.
