Big Savings to Help You Apply the Bible

June 20, 2017 - Accordance Bible Software — Understanding and applying the Bible is one of the tasks of every Christian, but most know, it's no easy task. Reading and understanding the Scriptures takes time and effort. The Apostle Paul says, “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9 NIV). The first step of understanding the Bible is reading it, but what do we do from there? We don’t want to merely amass knowledge of the Bible, allowing it to have no effect on us. With up 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 c ...

Focus on the Fathers

June 13, 2017 - Accordance Bible Software — The biblical image of God as Father sets the standard for a guiding figure who is gracious, loving, and wants the best for his children. The Christian faith holds the figures of the Early Church in high esteem with the special designation, “Church Fathers.” For centuries, Christians have looked to the wisdom of the Church Fathers for insights into understanding the Scriptures and guidance for themselves and their families. This week, in recognition of the best that fathers have to give to this world, we are highlighting the Early Church ...

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 h ...

Update! Biblical Archaeology Review 1975-2016

May 22, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — I first got my hands on Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR) in 1986. I was a senior in high school, and my English teacher had a year’s worth of issues in a desk drawer (yes, this was a public high school). She asked me if I wanted them, and I enthusiastically said I did, even though I wasn’t actually familiar with the magazine before that day. She described it to me as a kind of “National Geographic of Bible Times.” We could debate how accurate that description was, but all I know is that I devoured those issues. I read them cover to ...
