    The emergence of radical Islamists should be of no surprise to students of scripture. America is only now understanding their intense passion to rule, not only the Middle East but the Western world as well. Youssef points to passages that show us how biblical prophecy speaks to the awful things to come. He finds a clear, relevant presentation of major themes in the book of Revelation with some surprising insights. He presents not just a guidebook to the future but also an action plan for living confidently for Christ in today’s uncertain and turbulent world.

    Did the historical person Jesus really regard himself as the Son of God? What did Jesus actually stand for? And what are we to make of the early Christian conviction that Jesus physically rose from the dead? In this book N. T. Wright considers these and many other questions raised by three controversial books about Jesus: Barbara Thiering’s Jesus the Man, A. N. Wilson’s Jesus: A Life, and John Shelby Spong’s Born of a Woman. While Wright agrees with those authors that the real, historical Jesus has many surprises in store for institutional Christianity, he also presents solid reasons for discounting their arguments, claiming that they “fail to reach anything like the right answer” as to who Jesus really was. Written from the standpoint of professional biblical scholarship yet assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, Wright’s Who Was Jesus? shows convincingly that much can be gained from a rigorous historical assessment of what the Gospels say about Jesus. This is a book to engage skeptics and believers alike.

    It is often said that “writing in the name of another” was widely accepted in antiquity. But New York Times bestselling author Bart D. Ehrman dares to call it what it was: literary forgery, a practice that was as scandalous then as it is today. In Forged, leading Bible authority Bart D. Ehrman exposes one of the most unsettling ironies of the early Christian tradition: the use of deception to establish the truth. With the scholarly expertise and provocative claims for which he’s known, Ehrman reveals which texts were forged in the name of Jesus’ disciples and considers how the deceptions of an unnamed few have prevailed for centuries. The untold story of widespread forgery in the ancient world sheds new light on how documents of scandalous origin became part of the Bible we have today. Ehrman’s fascinating story of fraud and deceit is essential reading for anyone interested in the truth about the Bible and the dubious origins of Christianity’s sacred texts.

    Modern Christians are steeped in a language so distorted that it has become a stumbling block to the religion, says internationally renowned Bible scholar Marcus J. Borg. Borg argues that Christianity’s important words, and the sacred texts and stories in which those words are embedded, have been narrowed by a modern frame work for the faith that emphasizes sin, forgiveness, Jesus dying for our sins, and the after life. Here, Borg employs the “historical-metaphorical”method for understanding Christian language that can restore for us these words of power and transformation. For example, –Redemption: now narrowly understood as Jesus saving us from sins so we can go to heaven, but in the Bible it refers to being set free from slavery. –Savior: now refers to Jesus as the one who saves us from our sins, but in the Bible it has a rich and wonderful variety of meanings having nothing to do with the afterlife. –Sacrifice: now refers to Jesus’s death on the cross as payment for our sins, but in the Bible it is never about substitutionary payment for sin. In Speaking Christian, Borg delivers a languagefor twenty-first-century Christians that grounds the faith in its deep and rich original roots and allows it once again to transform our lives.

    Elaine Pagels explores the surprising history of the most controversial book of the Bible.In the waning days of the Roman Empire, militant Jews in Jerusalem had waged anall-out war against Rome’s occupation of Judea, and their defeat resulted in the desecrationof the Great Temple in Jerusalem. In the aftermath of that war, John of Patmos, a Jewishprophet and follower of Jesus, wrote the Book of Revelation, prophesying God’s judgmenton the pagan empire that devastated and dominated his people. Soon after, Christians fearingarrest and execution championed John’s prophecies as offering hope for deliverance fromevil. Others seized on the Book of Revelation as a weapon against heretics and infidelsof all kinds. Even after John’s prophecies seemed disproven—instead of being destroyed, Romebecame a Christian empire—those who loved John’s visions refused to discard them andinstead reinterpreted them—as Christians have done for two thousand years. Brilliantlyweaving scholarship with a deep understanding of the human needs to which religion speaks,Pagels has written what may be the masterwork in her unique career.

    A map, written in code and hidden in the gospel of Matthew, reveals a truth so explosive it could rock the foundations of Christianity—or lead to its rebirth. A cleric appears out of the rain-spattered darkness, bearing a mysterious message: A long-lost map with the power to transform men is on the verge of being discovered. Thrown headlong into a global chase, author David Murrow must race to find the map before it falls into the wrong hands and disappears forever. The Map, which begins as an action thriller and then transitions into a modern-day parable, reveals the path every great man—including Christ himself—has walked. In this dynamic follow-up to the bestselling Why Men Hate Going to Church, Murrow cleverly translates the masculine spiritual life into an actual, ink-on-paper map. Then he shows men where to find the map in the New Testament and how to walk its ancient paths today.

    God did not mean for salvation to be a deep, complicated subject that man could not understand. But sometimes man’s words confuse God’s simple truths. D. L. Moody, one of the nineteenth century’s greatest evangelists, shows how simple salvation is. Avoiding heavy philosophy, he simply shows “the way to God.” The Way to God is filled with stories about ordinary people. Anyone willing to have honest questions and doubts answered will appreciate such topics as, “Who is Christ?” “How can I know my sins have been forgiven?” and “What can I do if I have turned away from God?” More than one million copies of this classic work have been distributed since it was first published in 1884.

    New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Garry Wills interprets the four gospels. Garry Wills’ recent New York Times bestselling books What Jesus Meant and What Paul Meant were tour de force interpretations on Jesus and the Apostle Paul. Now Wills turns his remarkable gift for biblical analysis to the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Wills examines the goals, methods, and styles of the evangelists and how these shaped the gospels’ messages. Hailed as “one of the most intellectually interesting and doctrinally heterodox Christians writing today” (New York Times Book Review), Wills guides readers through the maze of meanings within these foundational texts, revealing their essential Christian truths.

    Bart Ehrman, author of the highly popular books Truth and Fiction in The Da Vinci Code, Lost Christianities, and the New York Times bestseller Misquoting Jesus, here takes readers on another engaging tour of the early Christian church, illuminating the lives of Jesus’ most intriguing followers: Simon Peter, the Apostle Paul, and Mary Magdalene.  What does the Bible tell us about each of these key followers of Christ? What legends have sprung up about them in the centuries after their deaths? Was Paul bow-legged and bald? Was Peter crucified upside down? Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute? In this lively work, Ehrman separates fact from fiction, presenting complicated historical issues in a clear and informative way and relating vivid anecdotes culled from the traditions of these three followers. He notes, for instance, that there is no evidence to suggest that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute, and little reason to think that she was married to Jesus. Similarly, there is no historical evidence for the well-known tale that Peter was crucified upside down. A serious book but vibrantly written and leavened with many colorful stories, Peter, Paul, and Mary Magdalene will appeal to anyone curious about the early Christian church and the lives of these important figures.

    In Beyond Belief, renowned religion scholar Elaine Pagels continues her groundbreaking examination of the earliest Christian texts, arguing for an ongoing assessment of faith and a questioning of religious orthodoxy. Spurred on by personal tragedy and new scholarship from an international group of researchers, Pagels returns to her investigation of the “secret” Gospel of Thomas, and breathes new life into writings once thought heretical. As she arrives at an ever-deeper conviction in her own faith, Pagels reveals how faith allows for a diversity of interpretations, and that the “rogue” voices of Christianity encourage and sustain “the recognition of the light within us all.”
