Teaching That Transforms: Facilitating Life Change Through Adult Bible Teaching
Richard R. Melick, Jr., & Shera Melick

Teaching that Transforms aims to improve the ways in which the Bible is taught to adult learners. As grown-ups today leave the church in droves, academic professors Richard and Shera Melick recognize that it is in part because many who teach adults have little or no exposure to the distinctive characteristics of adult learners, rendering their lessons ineffective.

Affirming the traditional authority of God's Word while considering the need to make it relevant to every generation in its cultural and educational context, the authors set out to present an easily understood method, which they describe as "transformational," for teaching the Bible among adults. $29.99

Daniel L. Akin, David L. Allen, & Ned L. Mathews, editors

The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: Colossians and Philemon
Murray J. Harris

Harris aims to close the gap between grammatical analysis and exegesis, leading the reader into an in-depth understanding of the New Testament Greek text by guiding him or her through the processes of thorough exegesis flowing into sermon construction. $24.99

You'll never again forget what you were looking for, because the pertinent note, map, chart, word study, or illustration is already there. $69.99 (Bonded Leather)
