God gives each of us stories to tell. He teaches us life lessons through our everyday experiences. We have opportunities to take the lessons we have learned and share them with others to bring glory to God while encouraging our listeners to draw closer to Him. The telling about what God has taught us is our story. This book is a compilation of stories and devotions gleaned from the authors experiences as a middle school teacher, a preacher, and unfortunately, a sinner. In his unique voice the author has blended scripture with his stories to reveal the lessons God taught him. These experiences are not uncommon to any Christian who encounters people everyday and has children, grandchildren, or a spouse. Almost everyone will be able to relate to the stories in this book. Many of the selections will make you laugh while others are touching and heartwarming and will possibly bring a few tears. Preachers, Teachers and Other Sinners is an entertaining book. Of course not everyone is a preacher or a teacher, but all of us sin occasionally. This book was written with the purpose of directing the reader to a loving Savior who desires to draw all people to God no matter who they are.

This is the second volume in a comprehensive three-volume set of commentaries on all of the lectionary texts for Sunday reading (including the Psalms) and for special days in all communions, treating the readings for each year in a single volume. Preaching Through the Christian Year volumes are based on the newly revised The Common Lectionary (1992) together with other readings kept in the Episcopal, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic churches. The set will prove useful also for those who do not follow the lectionary, since each volume provides commentaries on a vast number of texts and includes a complete index of those texts. "Simply put, the best commentary series on the best lectionary. An unusual blend of biblical and homiletical skills." --James F. White "This could be the Interpreter's Bible for our generation. The comments are succinct and satisfying on all counts." --David H. C. Read The authors of this important series teach at Candler School of Theology at Emory University, Atlanta, and are renowned scholars in their particular disciplines-preaching and Hebrew Bible and New Testament studies.

Mark for the Nations

Mark for the Nations is a translation by the author of his Swedish commentary on the Gospel of Mark. It is meant both for students of theology and for pastors, as well as for lay people. Hartman reads Mark's Gospel through the eyes of an early Gentile-Christian reader. For this reason he quotes much material from the Hellenistic world in translation. To some extent this material appears here for the first time in a gospel commentary. The analysis makes use of literary criticism and text linguistics, but avoids the technical terminology. To stimulate a modern reader's understanding of the evangelist's message to his first-century audience Hartman has endeavored to translate traditional terms into slightly more common language.

One objective of this book is to set forth an interest in the Book of Ephesians and the Book of Philippians. Ten studies are developed from Ephesians in order to explain predestination, election, and the richness of God's grace. Chapters 11 and 12 advance God's salvation with an emphasis in Chapter 11 concerning the role of women in sharing the message of redemption. Chapter 13 examines one's life before rebirth and life after rebirth. Chapter 14 looks carefully at arguments adopted to condemn instrumental music in the Christian assembly. The next seven chapters (15-21) investigate several statements from the Book of Philippians with accent upon God working in us to accomplish His outreach to the lost. Three chapters (22-24) look at the purpose of the church, church and ministry, and the identification of the church.Chapter 25 sets forth the biblical date for the Exodus as well as biblical chronology versus liberal chronology. The next chapter (26) looks at the prophetic ministry. Chapters 27 and 28 review the prophet Jonah with an emphasis upon his psychological setback in his first refusal to carry out God's command to go to Nineveh. Chapter 29 discusses God's admonition to Joshua. Chapters 30-32 scrutinize 1 Timothy 2:11-15, which in-depth study is an overview of the Pastoral Epistles. This study seeks an answer to Paul's negative declaration about the participation of women in the church at Ephesus. These particular women were involved in the telling of stories about their gods and goddesses as well as the practice of magic. They did not understand the true nature of Jesus. The next three chapters (33-35) analyze the identity of Jesus. And, finally, Chapter 36 is written from an apologetic viewpoint, which reading concentrates upon the "cell" to demonstrate that there is an Intelligent Designer.

In this engaging treatment of the Gospel of Mark, Dawn Ottoni Wilhelm combines biblical scholarship with a close reading of the Gospel text to meet the needs of preachers today. Swift and purposeful, the Gospel of Mark proclaims God's reign and urges the participation of all God's people in the witness of the good news that God has transformed human reality through Jesus Christ. This insightful commentary helps that message come alive while providing pertinent suggestions about how preachers can proclaim this message to today's churchgoers.
