The new school year is right around the corner and our new fall catalog has arrived just in time. Packed full of essential resources for students and academics, there are a number of books to get excited about. If you’re a pastor or church leader, don’t worry, there are plenty of upcoming titles that should benefit your ministry or studies.
The catalog begins with a two page spread showcasing our brand new Original Languages Suite. Two introductory grammars for biblical Greek and one for biblical Hebrew are all scheduled to arrive by November. Each of them contain practical lessons and exercises to help students grasp the fundamentals of language learning.
- Biblical Greek Made Simple is a one-semester textbook that teaches the basics of biblical Greek. Designed with the modern student and curriculum in mind, this grammar introduces all the essential elements of biblical Greek while also utilizing the tools and features of Logos Bible Software to help retain and enhance knowledge of Greek.
- In An Introduction to Biblical Greek, John D. Schwandt integrates the rigor of a classic Greek grammar with the fruit of contemporary language learning. The result is a one-stop introduction to New Testament Greek that is both academically sound and student friendly.
- Designed for long-term retention, Learning Biblical Hebrew focuses on helping students understand how the language works and providing a solid grounding in Hebrew through extensive reading in the biblical text. A companion workbook provides the essential reading practice that makes the study of Biblical Hebrew come alive.
The next few pages showcase three new books from familiar Lexham authors:
- In his new book, Angels, Michael Heiser, the bestselling author of The Unseen Realm, tackles what the Bible really says about God’s heavenly host. Angels is not guided by traditions, stories, speculations, or myths about angels. Heiser’s study is grounded in the terms the Bible itself uses to describe members of God’s heavenly host; he examines the terms in their biblical context while drawing on insights from the wider context of the ancient Near Eastern world.
- Too often discussions about the End Times are fraught with wild speculation or discord. But a biblical view of eschatology places Jesus’ return and victory at the center. All Christians hold this hope in common. In Jesus Wins, Dayton Hartman focuses on this common ground to reveal why the way we think about the End Times matters.
- Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.
The middle of the catalog features four new classic volumes, drawn from the riches of Christian heritage.
- In his meditations, Abraham Kuyper reveals a side of himself rarely seen in his well-known theological writings. First published in 1880 and 1883 and never before translated into English, the devotions in Honey from the Rock were written for the nourishment and health of his soul. Rather than the public figure and theologian, we see a man thirsting and hungering for God’s presence.
- Three new volumes are scheduled to be added to our Lexham Classics series. The first comes from Kuyper’s mentor, Guillaume Groen van Prinsterer. His Unbelief and Revolution is a foundational work addressing the inherent tension between religion and modernity. Finally, two critical systematic theologies illuminate the development of two different Christian traditions: Richard Watson’s Theological Institutes and E. A. Litton’s Introduction to Dogmatic Theology.
