As a parent you are leaving an impression on your children that is going to last them their lifetime. The question becomes, what type of impression are you leaving and is that impression going to lead them towards or away from having a lasting faith in Jesus Christ? At the end of the day, the most important thing we can lead our children to have is faith in Jesus Christ because through faith in Him they can have eternal life. So, how do we lead children to have faith in Christ? That's what Pastor Holmen will reveal based on the work and research he has been doing for over 15 years. Pastor Mark's desire for parents to be "impressive" parents who succeed in leading their children to have faith in Christ is evident as he shares many practical ideas as well as personal letters at the end of each chapter written to a parent who was struggling, as all parents do, to practice this in daily life.

Biblical Hermeneutics is a textbook for introductory courses in hermeneutics. I takes an interdisciplinary approach that is both balanced and practical with six major foci: the history of biblical interpretation, philosophical presuppositions, biblical genre, the uniqueness of Scripture, the practice of exegesis, and use of exegetical insights that will be lived and communicated in preaching and teaching. Biblical Hermeneutics is designed for students who have little or no knowledge of biblical interpretation. It provides, in one volume, resources for gaining a working knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of biblical interpretation and for supporting the practice of exegesis on the part of the student. The first chapter "A Student's Primer for Exegesis" by Bruce Corley gives the student a bird's eye view of the entire process. It becomes for the student a kind of template to which they will return again and again as they engage in the process of exegesis. This revised edition of Biblical Hermeneutics contains seven new chapter that deal with the major literary genre of Scripture: law, narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, Gospels and Acts, epistles, and apocalyptic. The unique nature of Scripture is presented in part three that addresses the authority, inspiration, and language of Scripture. The book contains two extensive appendices, "A Student's Glossary for Biblical Studies" and an updated and expanded version of "A Student's Guide to Reference Books and Biblical Commentaries.

The Death of Deaths in the Death of Israel

This book explores Deuteronomy's understanding of exile. While Deuteronomy speaks of a potential historical experience in the nation's future, "exile" is also a dynamic theological concept. In short exile represents the death of Israel. In losing her land, Israel apparently loses her identity, history, and covenant relationship with Yahweh. Restoration from exile, then, is a resurrection from death to life. A major catalyst for this book is a network of debates among Evangelicals in New Testament theology, including covenant nomism and the New Perspective on Paul. For some Jesus' preaching of the kingdom and the forgiveness of sins is tied up with the nation's expectations of the return from exile, which is fulfilled in his death and resurrection. Proponents of this position (e.g., N.T. Wright) often turn to Deuteronomy for support. Additionally, in exploring the theme of restoration in Deuteronomy, the author argues persuasively for a view of the Torah that highlights grace, grace in salvation as well as grace in Israel's ultimate fulfillment of the call of God.
