The Baker Book of Bible Charts, Maps, and Time Lines

I will say it without equivocation, “Every teacher of the Bible needs a copy of John Beck’s new book, The Baker Book of Bible Charts, Maps, and Time Lines.” Beck, a thirty-five-year veteran Bible teacher has provided more than two-hundred pages of Bible charts, maps, pictures, and background resources to help Bible teachers do their job better and more efficiently.

Under An Open Heaven

Dr. John Johnson, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Western Seminary, brings over thirty years of pastoral ministry experience to his exposition of selected texts in the Gospel of John. The book includes a foreword by Gary Thomas and is endorsed by a number of prominent scholars and Christian leaders. F. Dale Bruner calls Johnson’s book “a delicious exposition.”

A Pastor Approaches the Death Bed

I never dreamed that I would find myself so familiar with death as a pastor. I studied theology in seminary, and learned about expositing a text and church leadership. However, I don’t remember reading a book about what to do when visiting someone on their deathbed. Looking back over the past seven years as a pastor, I’m astonished at how many times I’ve found myself in that exact position. Along the way, I’ve seen firsthand how uncomfortable with death we are as a society. Most people don’t know what to do or say in those moments, and so they call for a pastor.
