NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jon Meacham explores the seven last sayings of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels, combining rich historical and theological insights to reflect on the true heart of the Christian story. For Jon Meacham, as for believers worldwide, the events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. A former vestryman of Trinity Church Wall Street and St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, Meacham delves into that intersection of faith and history in this meditation on the seven phrases Jesus spoke from the cross. Beginning with “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” and ending with “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” Meacham captures for the reader how these words epitomize Jesus’s message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy. For each saying, Meacham composes an essay on the origins of Christianity and how Jesus’s final words created a foundation for oral and written traditions that upended the very order of the world. Writing in a tone more intimate than any of his previous works, Jon Meacham returns us to the moment that transformed Jesus from a historical figure into the proclaimed Son of God, worshiped by billions.

A Unique Study of Pauline Eschatology that Is Both Exegetical and Theological One of the trajectories coming out of Constantine Campbell's award-winning book Paul and Union with Christ is the significance of eschatology for the apostle. Along with union with Christ, eschatology is a feature of Paul’s thinking that affects virtually everything else. While union with Christ is the "webbing" that joins Paul's thought together, eschatology provides the "shape" of his thought, and thus gives shape to his teaching about justification, resurrection, the cross, ethics, and so forth. There is considerable debate, however, about Paul's eschatology, asking whether he is a "covenant" or an "apocalyptic" theologian. In Paul and the Hope of Glory Campbell conducts a thorough exegetical study of the relevant elements of Paul's eschatological language, metaphors, and images including "parousia," "the last day," "inheritance," "hope," and others. He examines each passage in context, aiming to build inductively an overall sense of Paul's thinking. The results of this exegetical study then feed into a theological study that demonstrates the integration of Paul's eschatological thought into his overall theological framework. The study is comprised of three parts: The first part introduces the key issues--both exegetical and theological--and sets the parameters and methodology of the book. It also offers an historical survey of the scholarly work produced on Paul's eschatology through the twentieth century to the present day. The second part contains the detailed exegetical analysis, with chapters on each important Pauline phrase, metaphor, and image related to eschatology. The third part turns its attention to theological synthesis. It recapitulates relevant conclusions from the evidence adduced in part two and launches into theological discussion engaging current issues and debates. This volume combines high-level scholarship and a concern for practical application of a topic currently debated in the academy and the church. More than a monograph, this book is a helpful reference tool for students, scholars, and pastors to consult its treatment of any particular instance of any phrase or metaphor that relates to eschatology in Paul's thinking.

Living in the Hope of Glory (originally Les Adieux, or Farewells) has been blessing readers for almost 150 years. Originally these were a series of talks given by Adolphe Monod, a renowned pastor in the Reformed Church of France, to groups of his family and friends. They met in his bedroom each Sunday to partake of the Lord's Supper during the last six months of his life as he suffered from terminal cancer. But this is not a book about dying. It is a book about living whole-heartedly for Christ and living so as to have no regrets at life's end. A week before his death he said, I have a Savior! He has freely saved me through his shed blood. ...All my righteous acts, all my works which have been praised, all my in my eyes only filthy rags. A brief biography of Monod has been added to this edition to acquaint modern readers with this extraordinary man.

Imagine you received a book as a gift. You read it and found it interesting, but some points were confusing. You and your friends discussed the meaning but no one could really figure out what the author meant. Wouldn't it help if you could meet him and ask him questions? Most Christians have the same difficulty in reading the Holy Bible. They read this beautiful book, but never come into the fullness of what it promises because they haven't spent enough time with the author. My prayer for you is that as you read this book the reality of knowing Jesus on a first name basis comes into your heart. Jesus and I talk intimately every day. He has given me desire to be so intimate with him that we are becoming one. This is what He desires for you also. This is the promise given to us: Christ in You the Hope of Glory.
