Three New Preaching Books from Weaver!

August 07, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — We don’t often think of preachers in the same class as politicians or lawyers—thank goodness! And yet all three professions place heavy use on public speaking and persuasion. The best communicators—regardless of profession—that I’ve personally known continue to hone their skills. Great preachers read other preachers’ sermons, and they regularly read good books about preaching and effective communication. Today, we are pleased to release three new books from Weaver Book Company that allow Accordance users to up their game when it comes to ...

NEW! Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

July 10, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Biblical Studies vs. Theology. This was the conflict I was introduced to in seminary. I’m not certain how my professors got along in the faculty lounge, but there was always a subtle rivalry between the departments. My Old and New Testament professors suggested—albeit subtly—that theology, as a discipline (if there even was such a thing), was bogged down by centuries of dogma and disputes that obscured the "true" meaning of the Scriptures. All one really needed was the simple biblical text and nothing else. On the other hand, my theology ...

NEW! The Preacher's Commentary (35 volumes)

June 26, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Perhaps you’ve heard the sentiment often repeated by seminary students: the sermon you preach in your seminary class you wouldn’t dare preach in your church, and the sermon you preach in your church you wouldn’t dare preach in your homiletics class. Unfortunately, there’s often a great amount of truth to this. To be certain, I’ve sat through student sermons that seemed to aim more at the academic hall than the average church setting for which I’ve been familiar. And, of course, sermons preached in a classroom often (but not always—who am I to ...

NEW! A Compact Guide to the Whole Bible

June 19, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Bible surveys can be difficult to teach. There’s certainly value to gaining a big picture overview of Scripture. Over the years, I’ve taught surveys of one or both Testaments at both the high school and college levels as well as in church settings. Sometimes it seems like I’m offering something very helpful, but other times it feels “a mile wide and an inch deep” as the saying goes. The same kind of sentiment can be said for written surveys of the Bible. Finding a good one-volume introductory survey of the Bible can be quite challenging. ...

NEW! Keener's Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts

June 12, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — When I was in high school, an agnostic father of one of my classmates cornered me one day in an attempt to question my Christian faith. He asked me if I believed in miracles. When I affirmed I did, He said, “If God has set natural laws in place in his creation, a miracle would be a violation of his laws. Wouldn’t that make God a lawbreaker?” I didn’t know the name David Hume at the time, but years later I would learn that this 18th century philosopher defined a miracle as a violation of natural law. Grounded in the empirical ideas of his age ...
