    Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritable and edgy. It’s the body’s way of letting us know that it’s lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God’s Word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. Swindoll explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals and then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God’s Word.

    Grasping God’s Word has proven itself in classrooms across the country as an invaluable help to students who want to learn how to read, interpret, and apply the Bible for themselves. The third edition, revised based on feedback from professors, will continue to serve college-level students and lay learners well in their quest to gain a firm grasp on the rock of God’s word. Old Testament scholar J. Daniel Hays and New Testament expert J. Scott Duvall provide practical, hands-on exercises to guide students through the interpretive process. To emphasize the Bible’s redemptive arc and encourage correlation across the canon, the authors have included a call to “cross into the rest of Scripture” as an additional step in the Interpretive Journey. This edition has also been rearranged for clarity and includes updated illustrations, appendices, bibliography, and assignments. A website for professors offers extensive teaching materials, and an accompanying revised workbook (Grasping God’s Word Workbook—sold separately) gives students additional practice in reading and interpreting the Bible.

    Pain is not the enemy! Injustice. Rejection. Loneliness. Loss. Discipline. Failure. Death. They are life’s “inevitables”—and the events we fear the most, say authors Paul Meier and David Henderson. Yet we often miss the treasures beyond these inevitable events because we’re too busy trying to avoid pain. Though relieving suffering is a worthwhile pursuit—and one the authors have devoted their lives to—their clinical practice, personal experiences, and biblical studies have convinced them that “no suffering” is not the goal. Seeking and embracing God’s purposes for pain is. But we can only do this by casting our hurts in a whole new light. What if, instead of chasing after a pain-free existence, we saw adversity as an ally? A temporary companion who leads us away from danger and toward healing? A trainer who pushes us through to the next level of growth? In this penetrating look at the seven universal struggles of life, Meier and Henderson show us how to not only go through them but grow through them. Their hard-earned wisdom will assure us that beyond the brokenness and pain is where we will find that secret storehouse of meaning—the place where our fear of the dark gives way to the light of God’s purposes.

    The Bible remains the bestselling book of all time, believed by nearly two billion people (Christians and Jews) to be divinely inspired. But in this hard-hitting new book, author Robert J. Hutchinson argues that it is actually much more than this. The ideas enshrined in the Bible, he says, triggered a revolution in human thought and established the moral and philosophical foundation for Western civilization, from the recognition of basic human rights and belief in limited government to authentic feminism and the development of empirical science. He shows that it is more a “culture-war” book than a work of religious apologetics. Though the Bible is today under relentless attack by left-wing academics, novelists, and screenwriters to justify their own political agendas, Hutchinson fires back in this fast-paced, politically incorrect tour of the most important book ever written. This is a book atheists will fear and honest inquirers and believers will relish.

    Do we read the Bible for information about God and salvation, for principles and truths that we can use to live better? Or do we read it in order to listen to God and respond in prayer and obedience? Eat This Book, the second part of Peterson’s momentous five-volume work on spiritual theology, challenges us to read the scriptures on their own terms as God’s revelation, and to live them as we read them. With warmth and wisdom, Peterson offers greatly needed, down-to-earth counsel on spiritual reading, drawing listeners into a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of lectio divina, and the role of scripture translations. Countering the widespread practice of using the Bible for self-serving purposes, Peterson here serves listeners with a nourishing entrée into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.
