The Church And Racial Hostility from the Author: William H. Rader. Interaction between biblical study and the practical work of the church receives attention in this book. The author seeks biblical perspective on the problem of racial conflict. In New Testament times, the deepest conflict between groups was that between Jews and Gentiles. Ephesians 2:11-12 summarizes this conflict and its reconciliation in Jesus Christ. The book traces the history of the passage's interpretation from the early church to the present in order to clarify the current situation. It illustrates the significance of biblical scholarship for the practice of ministry.

Attack Of The Zombies from the Author: Kevin Spear. Clever and relevant take on Ephesians 2:1-5 where Paul said we are all dead in sin until we accept God's mercy, making us alive in Christ. This book begins with creation and shows how the "virus" of sin ruined a perfect world, and that we had no hope until Jesus came to save us. Great for outreach as well as well as harvest and trunk-n-treat events. Uses the popular zombie theme as a spiritually relevant allegory.

Ephesians from the Author: John Paul Heil. This book analyzes Paul's Letter to the Ephesians and demonstrates that the Letter's implied audience heard its individual units as a rich and complex pattern of chiastic structures. It shows that, not only is the entire Letter arranged in fifteen units that function as a comprehensive chiastic structure, but that each of these fifteen units in turn exhibits its own chiastic structure. By attending carefully to the structure and rhetoric of Ephesians, this work demonstrates how the implied audience is persuaded and empowered by the progression of the Letter to “walk in love” and so contribute to the cosmic unity of all things in Christ.

Macarthur 2 In 1 from the Author: John F. MacArthur. The Truth War Right now, Truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Christians are caught in the crossfire of alternative Christian histories, emerging faulty texts, and a cultural push to eliminate absolute Truth altogether. As a result, many churches and Christians have been deceived. Worse still, they propagate the deception that poses itself as Truth! In The Truth War John MacArthur reclaims the unwavering certainty of God’s Truth and anchors Christians in the eternal, immovable promises that are found in His Word. Strange Fire What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars? In Strange Fire, bestselling author and pastor John MacArthur chronicles the unsavory history behind the modern Charismatic movement. He lays out a chilling case for rejecting its false prophets, speaking out against their errors, showing true reverence to the Holy Spirit, and above all clinging to the Bible as the inerrant, authoritative Word of God and the one true standard by which all truth claims must be tested.
