Acts

A Bible Commentary for Everyday

This is the one book of the New Testament where you really need a map! Acts follows the travels of the apostles as they spread the gospel throughout the Mediterranean, weaving together the geographical journeys with the internal journeys of faith experienced by those travelling The Way. As we read, we share with the first Christians the unfolding excitement of the birth of the church, beginning in a tiny upper room and spreading into every corner of the world.

Confidence in the Living God

David and Goliath Revisited

Confidence lies at the heart of society, determining the success or failure of the economy, the government, companies, schools, churches and, of course, individuals. As Christians, we are called to proclaim our faith in God, but how can we build and maintain this confidence in an increasingly secularised culture where such faith is often seen as marginal, embarrassing or even downright dangerous? Using the story of David and Goliath, Andrew Watson takes a narrative theology approach to show how the Lord can indeed be our confidence, whatever the odds. He explores how God can develop a proper self-confidence within individuals and his Church, revealing the gospel through transforming words and transformed lives.

Did St. Paul Get Jesus Right?

The Gospel According to Paul

Was St Paul a distorter of Jesus' original message, or a faithful follower? Over recent years some critics of Christianity have claimed that while Jesus was a gifted teacher and a man of unparalleled kindness, St Paul was the true founder of Christianity, which he based on a delusional mistake: the idea that Jesus was God. This theory has found its way into academia, churches, newspapers, and, most recently, novels. In Did St Paul Get Jesus Right? respected New Testament scholar David Wenham looks at the historical evidence for such claims. Comparing the life and message of Jesus with the writings of St Paul, he offers a thoughtful exploration of their relationship, concluding that far from imagining Christianity, Paul was the messenger of an inherited faith.

Many readers of the Bible think that interpreting Scripture well simply requires a two way dialogue between themselves and the text. However, if we believe that God has been speaking through the Bible to devout Christians for the past 2000 years it would seem that we should find a way to identify the insights they perceived in the text so that we could learn to read the text with them.

Preaching the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke

The stories of Jesus' birth are probably the most familiar parts of the Bible - and this book argues that they need rescuing from Christmas, a season which, as often as not, stifles rather than clarifies their meaning. Our understanding of them is so overlaid with sentimentality and legend that we can struggle to hear the word of God through the text. This verse-by-verse exploration of the birth narratives reveals them as carefully crafted works of theology, written in the light of the resurrection and drawing on the Hebrew scriptures to reveal the nature of the God who sent his Son into the world for our salvation.
