Isaac Watts is universally recognized as one of the greatest English-language hymn writers of the eighteenth century, the "Golden Age of English Hymnody." Watts almost singlehandedly broke the monopoly of metrical psalm singing and practically invented the hymn form as it is known today. Particular attention is given to the meanings of the words as they were used by Watts, the scriptural backgrounds of the texts, and their relationship to other writings by the English author.

The Biblical Rembrandt presents Rembrandt in the context of his faith. That faith can be studied only by an intense look at his paintings, etchings, and drawings depicting biblical persons, scenes, and moments. About Rembrandt’s life, we know very little that is certain, but he has left us abundant testimony of his sensitive reading of the Bible.

A critical review of the Left Behind series, plus one of the Left Behind: The Kids series, and the first book in Babylon Rising.

Ultimately, this work suggests that the theological premises set forth in the series are at best dubious.

In January 2009, an international group of Baptist theologians met in Cardiff, UK, for a colloquium to explore the theory and practice of Baptist hermeneutics. Drawing primarily from the British Baptist community, the group’s work was enhanced by insights from participants from the USA and Eastern Europe. Participants brought a diversity of scholarly and pastoral interests to the colloquium, and through presentation and discussion explored together the nature of Baptist hermeneutics. The resulting volume addresses five core thematic areas.

The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H793
ISBN: 9780881461589
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
As the most comprehensive study of Thoreau’s spirituality from a Christian perspective, The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau is the first to seriously examine connections between Thoreau’s religious practices and those of his Protestant forebears. While a few writers have considered the relation between Thoreau’s thought and Christian doctrine, this book instead outlines the links between Thoreau’s religious practices (such as keeping a spiritual journal, studying nature, and walking) and those of earlier New England Protestants.
