1 ABBOTT T.K. A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Epistles to the Ephesians and to the Colossians.

This hardcover book was published in 1897 by T. &. T. Clark with 400 pages incluiding advertisements and prelims. The text contains about 100 pages with scattered underlining in mostly pencil but ocassionally in pen. The binding is sound though the front hinge is cracking. The pages are toned with moderately scattered foxing. The corners are bumped and the tips are rubbed through. No dust jacket. The covers show some cloth erosion. The top page edges are heavy soiled with accumulated dust. PREFACE :THE following Commentary is primarily philological. Its aim is to ascertain with as great precision as possible the actual meaning of the writer's language. The Commentaries which have been regularly consulted are those of Chrysostom and Theodore of Mopsuestia, amongst the ancients ; and amongst the moderns, Alford, Barry, De Wette, Eadie, Ellicott, Meyer (W. Schmidt), Moule, von Soden, and the Speaker's ; also for Ephesians, Harless, Stier, and Macpherson ; and for Colossians, Lightfoot The Commentary of von Soden, though concise, is very acute and independent. Mr. Moule's also, although bearing a modest title, is of great value. Other writers have been occasionally consulted. Much use has been made of Fritzsche's occasional notes in his various commentaries, especially in connexion with the illustration of the language of the Epistles from classical and late Greek authors. Wetstein, of course, has not been overlooked. The text adopted is that of the Revisers, except where otherwise stated. T. K. ABBOTT

Models of Ministry Studies in the First Epistle to the Thessalonians Ketchum Christian Leadership, Dr. Lance Ketchum
8 Dr. Lance Ketchum Models of Ministry Studies in the First Epistle to the Thessalonians Ketchum Christian Leadership
Disciple Maker Ministries 1998-01-01 Paperback Used: Good Paperback 
This paperback book was published in 1998 by Disciple Maker Ministries with 208 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. The cover is moderately worn around the edges with some surface scratching. For most people, the word church brings to mind a large building used a few times a week. For them, church means a place. It means a place to go to Sunday school, a place to worship, or a place to pray. It means a place for wed¬dings or a place for funerals. It means a place where reli¬gious people gather to do religious things.In the Bible, the word church does not refer to a place. The word church in the Bible refers to people; how¬ever, it does not refer to just any people. It refers to God's people called out from the world to live life distinctively different from the rest of the world. Church is the assem¬bling together of the separated ones ("Saints").In the Bible, a church is a composite of born again people who have identified themselves as disciples of Jesus Christ by being immersed (water baptized) and who are committed to observing the commands and teachings of Je¬sus in their everyday lives. Even when they are not assem¬bled, they are still a church. Even as they go about their everyday work and chores, they are still a group of people who have covenanted together to live accountable to Jesus Christ and one another.Every local church is defined by how each of its members lives before the world. We would like to think our local churches are defined by our doctrinal statements (neatly typed and systematically presented). We would like to think that, but we would be lying to ourselves. A local church is not defined by its doctrinal statement. It is not even defined by the professed beliefs of its members. A lo¬cal church is defined to the community in which it exists by the lives of each its members. The lost do not really care what we profess to believe. They only care about the realityof our faith. For them, that means the practice of our be¬liefs. They watch our beliefs every day of every week of every year.In the First Epistle to the Thessalonians, Paul deals with many different aspects of how a local church should model Christianity. Lost people seldom read doctrinal state¬ments. In my over 25 years in the ministry, I have yet to have a lost person ask me for a doctrinal statement of my beliefs; however, I have had many lost people tell me (after they were saved) that they had watched me for a long time to see if I was real.Being Models of Ministry means becoming Christ-like in our everyday practices of life. It means loving peo¬ple the way Jesus loved them. It means self sacrifice. It means moving beyond temporal thinking and living. It means putting our lives into the control of the living Crea¬tor/God Who promises to work all things "together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).Every Christian should consider what kind of Model of Ministry he is because he is defining Christianity as a whole to the world in which he lives by the way he lives.

Studies on the New Testament Freideiric Louis Godet 1876 Edition, Freideiric Louis Godet
9 Freideiric Louis Godet Studies on the New Testament Freideiric Louis Godet 1876 Edition
Hodder and Stoughton 1876 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 1876 by Hodder and Stoughton with 416 pages including prelims and ads. Ex-library. The text has a couple sparsely scattered undelines and notations in the text. The binding is cracking along the rear hinge. Previous owners bookplate and card pocket have been removed. The covers, especially along the spine panel have some cloth erosion and heavier rubbing. The corners are bumped and the tips are rubbed through. The top and the bottom of the spine panel have a few small chips. PREFACE.The collection of sacred books which make up our Holy Scriptures may be compared to an edifice containing sixty-six rooms, in each of which there shines a ray of the celestial light. Most Christians are contented to gaze upon it from with¬out, as mere tourists. Are they prevented from entering by the fear of finding within it only closed doors ? Such is, no doubt, the feeling of many. We now come forward to offer them the key to some of these mysterious chambers. If they are willing to make use of it, they will soon extend their visits to all the rooms in this Divine abode, and take up as their own the prayer of David : " One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require, even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit His temple " (Ps. xxvii. 4)...The first volume of these studies has been so kindly received, that I venture to hope for a not less favourable reception of the second. Not that I am not keenly sensible of its defects. But its readers may perhaps be moved to extend to it some degree of indulgence, when they remember what a time of struggle and of anguish the summer which gave birth to it was for the author. But the dedi-cation will also remind them how rich an autumn succeeded to the storms of the summer.1Two only of the five essays in this volume h&d been previously published (The Earliest Traditions respecting our four Gospels, and the Essay on the Apocalypse: Revue Chreticnne, January, 1864, and March, 1869). They have been entirely recast.May the Lord render efficacious to the hearts of my readers everything in this work that is truly His!

The Epistles of St. Paul to the Colossians and to Philemon, J. B. Lightfoot
15 J. B. Lightfoot The Epistles of St. Paul to the Colossians and to Philemon
MacMillan 1876 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover 
This hardcover book is the second edition that was published in 1876 by MacMillan and Comany with 437 pages including the prelims. This voulme has been rebound at some point with the spine panel and covers glued to the new hardboards. There are scattered notations throughout the text (mainly in the margins). Previous owners names on the half-title page. The front hinge is cracking. The covers and edges are heavily worn. Despite the condition issues this is still a very useable copy of an early edition of Lightfoot's exegetical treatment of these two Pauline letters. Here is the completion of another volume of my commentary, I wish again to renew my thanks for the assistance received from previous labourers in the same field. Such obligations must always be great; but it is not easy in a few words to apportion them fairly, and I shall not make the attempt. I have not consciously neglected any aid which might render this volume more complete; but at the same time I venture to hope that my previous commentaries have established my claim to be regarded as an independent worker, and in the present instance more especially I have found myself obliged to diverge widely from the treatment of my predecessors, and to draw largely from other materials than those which they have collected.In the preface to a previous volume I expressed an in¬tention of appending to my commentary on the Colossian Epistle an essay on 'Christianity and Gnosis.' This intention has not been fulfilled in the letter; but the subject enters largely into the investigation of the Colossian heresy, where it receives as much attention as, at all events for the pre¬sent, it seems to require. It will necessarily come under dis¬cussion again, when the Pastoral Epistles are taken in hand. The question of the genuineness of the two epistles con¬tained in this volume has been deliberately deferred. It could not be discussed with any advantage apart from the Epistle to the Ephesians., for the three letters are inseparably bound together. Meanwhile however the doctrinal and his¬torical discussions will, if I mistake not, have furnished answers to the main objections which have been urged; while the commentary will have shown how thoroughly natural the language and thoughts are, if conceived as arising out of an immediate emergency. More especially it will have been made apparent that the Epistle to the Colossians hangs together as a whole, and that the phenomena are altogether adverse to any theory of interpolation such as that recently put forward by Professor Holtzmann.In the commentary, as well as in the introduction, it has been a chief aim to illustrate and develope the theological conception of the Person of Christ, which underlies the Epistle to the Colossians. The Colossian heresy for instance owes its importance mainly to the fact that it throws out this conception into bolder relief. To this portion of the subject therefore I venture to direct special attention.I cannot conclude without offering my thanks to Mr A. A. VanSittart who, as on former occasions, has given his aid in correcting the proof sheets of this volume; and to the Rev. J. J. Scott, of Trinity College, who has prepared the index. I wish also to express my obligations to Dr Schiller-Szinessy, of whose talmudical learning I have freely availed myself in verifying Frank el's quotations and in other ways. I should add however that he is not in any degree responsible for my conclusions, and has not even seen what I have written.

Practical Lectures on Romans Dr J Frank Norris First Baptist Fort Worth Texas Fundamentalist, J. Frank Norris
16 J. Frank Norris Practical Lectures on Romans Dr J Frank Norris First Baptist Fort Worth Texas Fundamentalist
By the Author 1946-01-01 First Edition Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This FIRST EDITION hardcover book was published circa 1946 (though a publishing date is not provided) by the Author with 195 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound though the hinges are weakening. The pages are toned. The corners are bumped. No dust jacket. Random Excerpt from Pages 72-73:We baptize about four times as many people—I shall say it this way—four to one people that join Temple Church in Detroit come by baptism. Last spring we had counted over five hundred Roman Cath-olics. The last time I baptized up there, there were four women seventy and eighty years of age. In the year 1936 I baptized over three hun-dred Presbyterians and Methodists who joined Temple Baptist Church.Here is what happened. A very distinguished minister who used to come here to this church from the North—he would say,"You can't build a great church in the North like you do down South." He said, "Now they will be converted and go and join other denominations, but they won't join the Baptists."And so now we have found out we baptized last year, I think the exact figures were 1039, of the approximately 1400 members that joined the church.We had a deacon there, a good man—he used to think he knew more than the pastor—he has had some doubts about that recently. He came to me and said, "Now you can't preach on baptism up here in the North like you do down South.""Well," I said, "that is strange. I didn't know God Almighty had one Bible for the South and another for the North."That puzzled me. And the next Sunday I got up and told what the deacon had said. I followed the Scripture which says, "What the dea-cons tell the preacher in private, go before the whole congregation and repeat it publicly."What happened ?Well, I went to work and preached on it.Now we have come tonight to the close of the fifth chapter.For the first five chapters the theme has been the great truth of "Justification by faith." As a matter of review who will tell me where that occurs in the Old Testament ?VOICE: Habakkuk2:4.It is quoted three times in the New Testament. It is mentioned first in Romans 1:17—Galatians 3:11—Hebrews 10:38.Now who will find that quotation in Habakkuk 2:4? It is very significant. Now that was the text of the world's greatest revival since Pentecost.Union With ChristI say, for the first five chapters we have been talking on "Justification by faith"—sin and justification.Now then, we come to the second great truth, "Union with Christ."It is not enough that a soul is free from sin. But he is given something. He is given righteousness, as we saw.And then he is not only given righteousness—he cannot have righteousness without having a close, vital relationship to Jesus Christ.Define it ? We can't define it. If we could define it, it would cease to be union with Christ."What shall we say then?"—remember I told you last night,question after question—that was the method Paul used—"Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?"—we counted five times the word "abound" is used in the fifth chapter."God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?"Now I am going to have you read the first ten verses yourselves. I am trying to help all the teachers of the Sunday School to quit preach-ing and go to teaching. One way is to let your class have some part in the lesson.Now the finest art in the world is the fine art of reading the Scriptures publicly, which is so poorly done by most people I hang my head in shame. And so I want us now to read these first ten verses, and we will never teach our people to read the Scriptures until we our-selves know how to read the Scriptures. Speak out loud and not too fast, and let's all stay together:Romans 6:1-10, "What shall we say then? Shall we con-tinue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us-as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God."There is not one sctintilla of Scripture on baptism in the Old Testament.Baptism is a New Testament ordinance that began with a man who had his credentials from on high, who was sent from God, whose name was John.Incidentally I will stop here and help you on this question. Quite often people come to me and say, "Well, I have been immersed. Why don't you take my immersion ? I am satisfied with it." I always ask this question:Was the man who baptized you immersed or sprinkled ? If the man who baptized you was sprinkled, then the man that baptized you has no credentials for baptizing you, and certainly he has no right.Brief Biography from the J Frank Norris internet site: Dr. Norris was constantly embroiled in religious and political battles and was known as "The Fighting Parson" and "The Texas Cyclone." He met opposition head-on and did not fear any man. He once said, "When I die, let it be carved on my tombstone 'Here lies a man who never turned his back in the day of battle or feared to face a foe.'" Dr. Norris was a preacher, pastor, educator, world-traveler, revivalist, builder, fund-raiser, author, and the editor of his own newspaper. His friends loved him and admired him, but his enemies hated and feared him. A newspaper reporter once wrote, "There is an eleventh commandment in Fort Worth - Thou shalt not mess with J. Frank Norris." He fearlessly exposed the social evils of society. He aggressively probed issues, investigated improprieties, and publicly exposed and castigated the offenders. His life is filled with stories of adventure, courage, faith and danger - the stuff from which legends are made. He helped to cause the resignation of the president of Baylor University, and fought liberalism throughout the Southern Baptist Convention. He almost single-handedly stopped gambling at the Dallas Fair and horse race gambling in Texas for over eighty years. He was shot at, his life was threatened, and three thousand men, led by the mayor of Fort Worth, drank to his being run out of town, or to his hanging. He closed down the infamous "Hell's Half-Acre," that housed the notorious "Hole-in-the-Wall Gang." Twice he was charged with burning down his home and his church. Both times the juries declared him "Not Guilty." Many people believe that the fires were started by his enemies. He was tried for murder in a nationally reported trial in Austin, Texas. The jury deliberated only one hour and fifteen minutes, and declared him "Not Guilty" on the first ballot. Thus, Dr. Norris was found "Not Guilty" of first degree murder, which the dictionary defines as "murder committed premeditatively and with malice." The jury found Dr. Norris "Not Guilty" because they were convinced that the shooting of D. E. Chipps was not premeditated, and was done without malice. The jury was convinced that Dr. Norris shot Chipps because he felt his life was threatened. Dr. Norris was also involved in politics. He helped to defeat a Democratic Presidential candidate in Texas and helped to elect two Republican candidates to the Presidency. He was a friend of several world leaders such as the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He burned the Nazi flag before a huge audience in Madison Square Garden. On another occasion he burned the Communist flag before a gigantic audience in Detroit, Michigan. He strongly and continuously opposed religious and political liberalism, Roman Catholicism, the Ku Klux Klan, the National Council of Churches, and liberalism in the Northern and Southern Baptist Conventions. He simultaneously pastored two of the largest churches in America, 1,300 miles apart, for thirteen years.

Previous owners name present. Suitable as a reading or research copy only due to the condition issues. MEN speak of Christianity as the religion of love, commonly without feeling any need of examining their terms. Yet the phrase may become inaccurate and even misleading by its very vagueness. ' Love ' is a great dictionary word, and in the religious vocabulary of the world Christianity has been identified with it so loosely that it is well to ask what this definition or description really means, and how far it is true. We require to scrutinize the received opinions about love. For example, God is love, in the NT, is a religious conviction, though this is often forgotten. It may stir moral and metaphysical problems for the philosophy of religion, problems which either shake and upset the conviction or on the other hand uphold it in the minds of thoughtful worshippers; but the conviction does not rise out of such considerations. The love of God, like His holiness, is revealed not in His being but in His purpose, in His , attitude and action towards men ; in religion all depends on what the God is to whom the term ' love ' is thus applied, and for the NT, in the wake of the OT religion, it is what God does that reveals what He is.; This God is a God who has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ His Son in self-sacrificing love for the sake of life to His own on earth : God is love, and this is bow the love of God has appeared for us, by God sending his only Son into the world, so that by him we might live. The highest form known to us of self-sacrificing love is thus used to interpret God's love to man, as well as to interpret the supreme form of the human love stirred in response- and, we ought to lay down our lives for the brotherhood. Yet even this is not by itself adequate, for such self-sacrifice, noble as it always is, may not fully bring out what the Christian understands by the divine love. It does not require very much observation to realize that life may be sacrificed, owing to a generous but casual impulse. ..... There are instances of a man laying down his life to save that of another, without acting from love in the sense of conscious, deliberate affection ; a fair example is to be seen in the last chapter of George Meredith's novel The Ordeal of Richard Feverel. Similarly with brotherly love. The term ' love ' may be used of the tie that unites those who share common birth and blood in a nation ; they have affinities which bind them together in a closer bond than they recognize to outsiders. Furthermore, to share common interests or tastes may produce a liking for people which is described as ' love.' Such usages of the term cannot be carried over into religion without misconception. And neither can the love which is romantic and tender, between man and woman, however much this experience throws light upon the divine love. No one can misunderstand the passion which leads a writer like Mark Rutherford1 to describe the affection of a wife for her commonplace, misunderstood husband by comparing it with God's love from which it streamed. " If I were to think that my wife's devotion to me is nothing more than the simple expression of a necessity to love somebody, that there is nothing in me which justifies such devotion, I should be miserable. Rather, I take it, is the love of woman to man a revelation of the relationship in which God stands to him- of what ought to be, in fact. In the love of a woman to a man who is of no account God has provided us with a true testimony of what is in His own heart. . . .

The NIV Application Commentary: Revelation Craig Keener NIVAC Brand New, Keener, Craig S.
18 Keener, Craig S. The NIV Application Commentary: Revelation Craig Keener NIVAC Brand New
0310231922 / 9780310231929 Zondervan 2000-01-01 Hardcover New Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This brand new hardcover book was published in 2000 by Zondervan with 576 pages. The top front corner was bumped during transit from the distributor. Those who study the book of Revelation usually view it from any of several positions regarding a time of tribulation, the rapture of the church, and the thousand-year reign of Christ on earth. Some have used Revelation to pinpoint present and future events ranging from the identity of the Antichrist to the exact date and hour of Christ's return. Through the years, such predictions have consistently failed. Yet others who view Revelation as purely historical are left with the dilemma of clearly unfulfilled prophecies.What can we know about the book of Revelation? What should we make of its visions of apocalyptic horsemen, horns with faces, flying angels, and fantastic beasts? Most important, what meaning does it hold for us here and now, and how can we apply it to our lives?Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Craig S. Keener shares perspectives on Revelation that reveal what it meant to those who first read it and what it means for our twenty-first-century lives. With honesty and scholarly insight, Keener helps us strengthen our hope in the future while living out our faith wisely in the present.

Messages From A Pastor's Heart: To The Church With Love GK Rees Frisco Church Webb City MO, Rees, G.K
20 Rees, G.K Messages From A Pastor's Heart: To The Church With Love GK Rees Frisco Church Webb City MO
Rees Church Ministries 1992-01-01 Paperback Used: Very Good Paperback Trade Paperback 
This paperback book was published in 1992 by Rees Church Ministries with 94 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. FOREWORD:All my life since I found Christ as my Saviour, I have loved the church. Before I was saved, I did not want to go to church very often. After Christ saved me, I went everywhere that services were held. I drove many miles to revivals and special services, sometimes rushing to Church from my job without even changing clothes to be sure that I was on time.As a young man just out of high school, in a church-sponsored tent revival, I found the peace of God that I so desperately needed. In Church I consecrated my life to Christ and received sanctification. God set me apart and called me into the ministry. All my early religious training was in church and Sunday school.Churches helped sponsor my attendance at the Apostolic Faith Bible College. Churches backed me in evangelistic meetings after I graduated from my training. Many were kind enough to open their doors to me for my first preaching at revival meetings.The church is where I married my wife. When our children were born we dedicated them to the Lord in the church. The church helped train them and develop their character so they could become outstanding Christians.As I look back, it seems that just about every good thing that has ever happened to me, the church played an important part. I love the church.I had the privilege of helping pioneer the building of several churches. It was my joy to pastor one church for thirty-three years. Many ministers were trained in our church and went on to establish and pastor churches throughout the nation.Many years ago I began an exhaustive study of the seven churches of Revelation. I did a great deal of research in many different sources for the material I used in this book. This research spans so many years that much of thematerial relating to the history of the cities and churches has been lost or forgotten and I am unable to give credit to the original sources. My son, Gary, has updated my research on the seven cities where it was possible to do so.It has not been my aim to focus a great deal on the prophetic side of these churches, but to center on the practical and spiritual aspects. I have earnestly tried to apply these aspects to the church of today. There is a great need for strong Bible teaching to meet the needs of the church in these last days before the coming of Christ back to earth. He is looking for a "glorious Church without spot or wrinkle" to be His bride in the Marriage of the Lamb.I lovingly dedicate this book to the church.
