“Aunque todos los libros de la Biblia fueron inspirados por Dios, ningún otro libro de las Sagradas Escrituras presenta a Jesucristo como su autor, ni muestra el futuro como lo hace el Apocalipsis. En esta versión abreviada de su comentario del libro del Apocalipsis, el Dr. Stefanovic transmite con fluidez y claridad los conceptos principales de su obra original. Este libro debiera ser leído por todos aquellos que vivimos en la undécima hora de la historia de nuestro planeta.” –Ricardo Norton (DMin, PhD), profesor asociado de crecimiento de iglesia, Universidad Andrews

Earthly Shadows, Heavenly Realities: Temple/Sanctuary Cosmology in Ancient Near Eastern, Biblical, and Early Jewish Literature
Kim Papaioannou Ed. and Ioannis Giantzaklidis Ed.
With a focus on the relation between the heavenly temple and its earthly counterpart, this book provides descriptions of the features and functions of the heavenly pattern, and examines the use of temple language in ancient Near Eastern literature, the Old Testament, the intertestamental corpus, and the New Testament, as it forms a core part of rich biblical imagery.
Homosexuality, Marriage, and the Church: Biblical, Counseling, and Religious Liberty Issues
Roy E. Gane, Nicholas P. Miller, and H. Peter Swanson
Some religious thought leaders, taking their cue from popular culture and current politics, are trying to make a case for biblical support of the practice of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Their efforts create serious confusion while challenging the church's ability to sensitively address one of the most explosive spiritual and public policy issues of our time.
In this volume, Christian scholars offer a deep resource of material—biblical, clinical, and legal—to untangle the complex web of questions surrounding this contested topic. The authors first provide a frank and rigorous explication of the Bible's clear teaching. Then they lay out the implications for counseling and for the religious liberty of the church and its members. And through it all, they make an impassioned call for love and care for those who are being misled into a walk down a dangerous path. The book includes moving testimonies from several Christians who have lived and struggled with homosexuality in their personal lives and can praise God for empowering them to live for Him.
In the threatening environment facing the church and society today, every Christian administrator, attorney, teacher, counselor, pastor, and congregational leader should read this book.
Judging the Sabbath: Discovering What Can't Be Found in Colossians 2:16
Ron du Preez
Sabbatarians have argued for centuries that the "sabbath" of Colossians 2:16 refers to the Jewish ceremonial sabbaths, and not the Decalogue Sabbath, based on a plain-sense reading of the context. Traditional Christian interpretation of that passage has generally bypassed the context and relied on other arguments, often unexamined by careful exegesis.
In this book, du Preez examines those other arguments. In a wide-ranging engagement with Scripture, he considers relevant exegetical, linguistic, structural, syntactical, and intertextual factors that could be used to support them. In the process, he finds the evidence pointing forcefully against the traditional interpretation.
Grounded firmly on a high view of scripture, du Preez's conclusions challenge any argument that relies on Colossians 2:16 in order to deny the continuing moral imperative of the seventh-day Sabbath.

Plain Revelation: Reader’s Introduction to The Apocalypse

In this concise reader's introduction, Revelation expert Dr. Ranko Stefanovic makes it all plain and simple.
In a straight-forward, no nonsense way, the author leads us chapter by chapter, section by section, scene by scene, through this amazing panorama of cosmic war and glory.

Servants and Friends: A Biblical Theology of Leadership
Against the chatter of pop psychology and the latest list of must-have motivational habits, twenty Bible scholars and ministry professionals thoughtfully grapple with what the Scriptures, in their totality, actually have to teach us about the essence of true leadership. In Servants and Friends, Skip Bell and his team examine and correlate the breadth of evidence in the Old and New Testaments. They trace the nature of God's intent, and bring it all together in a fresh and challenging theological understanding that may radically alter what we have thought leadership really is.
The Genesis Creation Account and Its Reverberations in the Old Testament
Asking the question, “Do the various biblical authors portray creation theologies that align or diverge with each other, particularly with the creation account in Genesis?” ten scholars collectively discover that the weight of the textual data clearly portrays an overarching understanding and theology of creation that permeates every biblical genre and book. Because creation theology clarifies God’s purpose in the human experience, their findings are an informative source of wisdom for Christians.
