The stories and contributions of the apostles provide a fascinating entrée into church history. As such, W. Brian Shelton, in Quest for the Historical Apostles, provides a comprehensive historical and literary introduction to the apostles that uncovers their lives and legacies. Shelton has collected and distilled the histories, legends, symbols, and iconography of the original twelve as well as located figures such as Paul, Peter, and John in the broader context of the history of the apostles. With this as a backdrop, he then explores the continuing story of the gospel mission and the twelve disciples beyond the New Testament.

Throughout the Bible, God appears to his people in many ways—fire, thunderstorm, cloud, man, warrior, and more. What do these temporary appearances of God—theophanies—mean? Why did God choose to reveal himself in these ways, at these times? Describing the various types of appearances from Genesis to Revelation, theologian Vern S. Poythress shows how these theophanies serve as revelations of God’s character and point to the ultimate appearing of God in the person of Christ. Becoming aware of God’s presence with his people, as revealed in theophanies, will call readers to deeper worship and eager anticipation of his full and final appearance in the new heaven and new earth.

Scot McKnight provides a careful textual analysis of the controversial letter to Philemon in this new addition to the NICNT series. Though Philemon’s content challenges social barriers and establishes new realities of conduct and fellowship, it has also been misused throughout time to justify slavery. In these pages, McKnight offers a much-needed careful exegesis of the text, contrasting ancient conventions with the practice of modern slavery and providing the context for a faithful and accurate reading. Pastors and scholars will find in this volume the insight they need to preach and teach this controversial book in meaningful new ways.

Many prominent Christians insist that the church must yield to contemporary evolutionary theory resulting in the modification of traditional biblical ideas about the creation of life. They argue that God used evolutionary mechanisms to produce all forms of life. Contesting this proposal, Theistic Evolution documents evidential, logical, and theological problems with theistic evolution. Featuring two dozen highly credentialed scientists, philosophers, and theologians from Europe and North America, this work is the most comprehensive critique of theistic evolution produced to date.
