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 ...

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 cover and ...
