Race: A Theological Account
J. Kameron Carter
Oxford University Press, USA
In Race: A Theological Account , J. Kameron Carter meditates on the multiple legacies implicated in the production of a racialized world and that still mark how we function in it and think about ourselves. These are the legacies of colonialism and empire, political theories of the state, anthropological theories of the human, and philosophy itself, from the eighteenth-century Enlightenment to the present. Carter's claim is that Christian ...
Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament
The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament is an excellent resource for those that desire to research the meanings of significant Hebrew words. It is very useful for those with little to no working knowledge of the Hebrew language. It is simple to use and provides great insight. For example, the word "bless" includes the idea "to endue with power for success, prosperity, fecundity, longevity, ...

A Theological Introduction to the Old Testament: 2nd Edition
Bruce C Birch
A Theological Introduction to the Old Testament
I am a student of Pastoral Ministry at the Masters level. I have found the work done in this book, with the citings and notes to be of extreme value to me and my writings. This book is helpful to any level of reader because of the clear way it explains and uses graphs and pictorials. Worth the buy to keep in your library.
Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms
Stanley J. Grenz
A Small Gem
The Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms is a small, slim (122 pages) book which typically devotes five or six lines each to theological terms, major theologians, and theological movements and traditions. It need hardly be said that a book which tries to squeeze a world of theology into a mere 122 pages will have its limitations. Nonetheless, it is surprisingly comprehensive, and ...
Theological Highlights of Vatican II
Pope Benedict XVI
Here is a significant book comprising Joseph Ratzinger's report on the debates and struggles that made up each of the four sessions of Vatican II (1962-65), along with theological commentary by a noted scholar and professor. At the council Ratzinger worked on the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei verbum), the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (Lumen gentium), and the Decree on the Missionary Activity of the Church (Ad gentes). ...
Theological Dictionary of the New Testament
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
Splendid resource for exegetes and homileticians
This summation of Kittel's magnum opus is essential for non-scholars interested in Biblical exegesis. With sweeping overviews of the cultural and theological foundations of various words in the Greek New Testament, this is a homiletical version of the Oxford English Dictionary. Irreplaceable.
Theological Anthroplogy (Sources of Early Christian Thought)
Patout J. Burns
Development of Anthropological thoughts in Church History
It is a very good book for anyone who wants to know more on Church History and the stand that the early Church took on various thoughts that developed at that time. The Chapters on Pelagius and Augustine is very interesting to read, especially the way Augustine takes on Pelagius. Also it is very enlightening to know how the Church fathers had to take a stand for the truth of the Bible in light of ...
The Theological Origins of Modernity
Michael Allen Gillespie
University Of Chicago Press
Best intellectual history - best view of ourselves
This book exceeded my expectations on so many levels. It is hard from the vantage point of 2009 to imagine a better intellectual history of the last thousand years of European development. And in telling the debates of religion on how the Western legacy came to be what it is today it greatly enriched my view of who we are. For a book on philosophy-religion and in less than 300 pages it pulls ...

The Civil War as a Theological Crisis
Mark A. Noll
The University of North Carolina Press
Religion and the Civil War Connected
There is no question that Prof. Knoll is an excellent scholar, easy to read author and has dedicated a great deal of attention to this book. The fact that the book is difficult to read is not the fault of the author but the publisher. Unless you are highly motivated to read this, or you have excellent eyesight, I would have to suggest you pass on this book. It is not a lengthy book and I can only ...
Genesis (Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible)
R. R. Reno
Probably the best commentary ever written on Genesis
After reading this commentary I could very easily turn back to Genesis 1:1 and read it all over again. Filled with theological and philosophical insights this commentary easily surpasses other efforts and is possibly the best commentary on Genesis since Augustine. The Brazos commentary series is a gold mine for preacher, professor or lay person and is welcome change to drudgery of modern ...
Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible
Perhaps One of The Best Resources Out There
This book is an enchiridion that stands as a great testament to the vast learning of the many scholars who contributed. The Book itself is simply fantastic, and all of the articles are suprisingly in-depth despite the vast array of territory covered. The list of contributors is a virtual whos-who of thinkers in the field of theology today (besides Kevin Vanhoozer, NT Wright and the other two ...
Theological Turning Points: Major Issues in Christian Thought
Donald K. McKim
Westminster John Knox Press
Westminster Dictionary of Theological Terms
Donald K. McKim
Westminster John Knox Press
An Outstanding Dictionary of Theological Terms
Theologian Charles Hodge noted: "Original sin is the only rational solution of the undeniable fact of the deep, universal and early manifested sinfulness of men in all ages, of every class, and in every part of the world." And thus we need God's word and His saving grace to rightly understand our world. And to assist the believer in learning God's word, one needs to understand scriptural ...

Helmut W. Ziefle

Theological Roots of Pentecostalism
Donald W. Dayton
A Major Contribution to 20th C. Pentecostalism's Pre-History
In the first chapter, Dayton notes that Pentecostalism is generally interpreted according to its most characteristic feature: glossolalia ("speaking in tongues"). However, he sees this as too restrictive and argues, instead, for a "constellation of motifs" that recur throughout the Pentecostal tradition, involving a five-fold pattern of Christological themes for Wesleyan Pentecostals that later ...

Walter A. Elwell
Robert W. Yarbrough
A Fantastic Resource
"Encountering The New Testament" by Walter A. Elwell and Robert W. Yarbrough is a great reference tool for quickly accessing basic information about the historical context of the New Testament. It could be used in a classroom as a textbook, or in a pastor's study as he/she does sermon preparation. I am a pastor, and I find myself going to this book often, when I want some background information ...
The Christian Theological Tradition, 3rd Edition
This is a very readable history of the Christian faith. If you are looking for a good overview of how the Christian faith developed and splintered this is the book. I would recommend as a starting point and then diving deeper on the subjects that interest you.
