Excerpt


The apostle Paul was bound by prison chains when he wrote to the church at Philippi. Despite his loss of liberty, and opposition from fellow-workers, the letter radiates joy--joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Phil- ippian Christians, and above all joy in Jesus himself. In The Message of Philippians Alec Motyer explores Paul's great themes, so relevant today: Christian unity, the Person of Jesus and what he has achieved for us, and the call to live worthy of the gospel.

Excerpt


Second Peter and Jude are among the most neglected books of the New Testament. But alert readers have long noted an unmistakable family resemblance between these two letters. In this commentary 2 Peter and Jude show themselves to be robust theological siblings, charged with keen, no nonsense desire to warn young believers of the false spiritual guides that are out to beguile them. Whenever Christians face or anticipate the destabilizing and destructive influence of misled teachers and subverters of truth, these letters will speak today. Christopher Green is minister of Emmanuel Church, Surrey, England. Dick Lucas is rector of St.Helen's Church, London, England.

Excerpt


David Prior, in this fresh and gripping exposition, writes first as a pastor. His conviction is that 1 Corinthians is uniquely a tract for our times. His aim is that churches will recognize the problems and tensions inherent in being God's people in the increasingly urban world today, and not be ignorant of the true spirituality that is the work of the Holy Spirit. He wishes for each of them as a body to grow to express the total Lordship of Christ. David Prior is a long-time pastor and lecturer.

Excerpt


Fullness and freedom--two aspects of Christian life that we all want to share. Paul wrote about them at length (and depth) in his letter to the Christians at Colossae, where certain new teachers were proclaiming that 'mere Christianity' is not enough. There is, they suggested, a fuller experience, a greater liberation, than they had so far enjoyed. But Paul was adamant: all God's fullness is in Christ alone, and only through his complete work are we set free. These are the great objective truths of the faith that Dick Lucas highlights in his exposition on The Message of Colossians and Philemon, enabling us to see both the riches that are ours in Christ and the irrelevance--even blasphemy--of all would-be improvements on what God has done.

Excerpt


Luke the physician was fascinated by people--rich and poor, Jews and Gentiles, men and women, rulers and slaves. In his Gospel he delights to portray Jesus as the Saviour not of an elite group but of anyone, in condition, who turns to him. Jesus is indeed the Saviour of the world. Luke knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote his Gospel. He tells us his goal in the opening verses: to set forth an orderly and accurate account of what had been accomplished by the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. In this up-to-date exposition on The Message of Luke, Michael Wilcock gives special attention to these opening words. Then, as he exa- mines the individual deeds and sayings of Jesus, he shows how the structure of Luke's narrative brings out their meaning. Michael Wilcock is former director of pastoral studies at Trinity College, Bristol, and is currently vicar of St. Nicholas' Church, Durham.

Excerpt


Immorality is inundating the Christian community and gradually eroding the foundations of Christian living. The truth ofGod incarnate, the atonement and the bodily resurrection of Christ are under attack - even from within the church. These are the concerns of Christians today, and they were the problems that faced the Christians of John's day. In a society that scorned the gospel and sneered at godly living, John encouraged Christians with a message forged two words - truth and love. In this contemporary retelling of John's message, David Jackman describes John's first letter as an upwardly spiralingstaircase that circles and broadens out around the twinthemes of truth, and love, mind and heart, Word and Spirit. It is a message both timeless and timely for the church today.

Excerpt


John Stott writes, 'During the last five years I seem to have lived inside the second letter of Paul to Timothy. In imag- ination I have sat down beside Timothy and have tried myself to hear and heed this final charge from the aging apostle... 'On each occasion I have been impressed afresh by the timeli- ness for today of what the apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders. For our era is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle sum- mons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast.' John Stott was rector of All Souls Church in London for twenty-five years and is a well-known and beloved author and commentator.

Excerpt


The Gospel of Matthew is perhaps the most important single document of the New Testament, for in it we have the fullest and most systematic account of the birth, life, teaching, death and resurrection of the founder of Christianity, Jesus. Michael Green shows how this very Jewish Gospel portrays the power and purpose of Jesus' life and work, which was to bring light to all the nations. We need Matthew's emphasis on God's revelation, old and new, its teaching on the life of discipleship and the university of the good news.

Excerpt


The letter of 2 Corinthians is important, Paul Barnett believes, for its magnificent message that God's power is brought to people in their weakness, not in human strength. This momentous theme emerges in a dramatic real-life situation. The apostle confronts shadowy opponents who had recently come to Corinth and formed an alliance with some of the church leaders and members. His letter is a fascinating record of that conflict. Paul Barnett argues that this heated debate between apparent power and apparent weakness is still with us today. His aim in this expostion has been to allow the timely message of 'God's fool' to be clearly heard. Paul Barnett is bishop of North Sydney in Australia. He has authored several books on the New Testament.

Excerpt


Times were hard for the first readers of the letter to the Hebrews. Many had been exposed to fierce persecution. They had been assaulted, their homes plundered, and some had been cast into prison. To such people this letter came as an encouragement. The writer of the letter turns their eyes to Christ, shows how he fulfills the hope expressed in the Old Testament sacrifices, and calls his readers to a steadfast faith that will take them through the hard times they now face.

Excerpt


In his commentary on The Message of Revelation, Michael Wilcock maintains that when God's words, declarations, arguments and reasonings had all been spoken, God gave the church 'a gorgeous picture book'. He lifts the curtain on Revelation's drama in eight scenes, helping our imaginations as well as our minds grasp the key concepts of this fascinating and enigmatic New Testament book.
