The Common Market is going to be the kingdom of the Antichrist! Jesus will return within 40 years of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948! The Battle of Armageddon will come when the Soviet Union invades Israel over oil! Those newspaper mileposts passed and the Soviet Union fell. The faithful Christian has his faith shaken every time prophetic teaching based on the New York Times fails. Critics have a field day with each wrong interpretation. Then a new theory that fits the daily news better than the last one pops up. Each time, the sensational new speculation fails. Could it be that prophecy writers are listening to CNN more than to God? When a careful Christian reads a scholarly work, it can be about as interesting as reading the telephone book. Scholars do great research, but their books generally are written to other scholars, not to the rest of us. Isn't there a better choice? You're holding it. A Primer on the Book of Daniel is designed for you. It's written in your language, not the almost-foreign jargon of the scholar. At the same time, it's drawn from the work of scholars who have studied the Bible carefully for years. Their work has been assembled and translated so you can understand what the Bible says when it's allowed to interpret itself. Using plain language, Daniel gets to explain himself.

Volume two in the Age of Grace series presents the Apostle Paul's doctrines as distinct from his former Hebrew understanding and from Greek philosophy. A brief explanation of Paul's epistles is followed by an in-depth exegesis of Romans 1 through 8 using Newell's translation. Then, a primer on the mystery of Christ and His Body is presented, followed by an explanation of fifteen other areas of doctrine, including sanctification, the old man and new man, the Bema Judgment, the Rapture, the role of women in the churches, and the gifts of the Spirit. The contrasts between Paul's doctrine in this dispensation of grace and that of Hebrew theology, Judaism, Gnosticism and Greek religion are briefly explained throughout.

Few topics are as important, and as controversial, as the proper role and exercise of authority in the Roman Catholic Church. Inspired by Pope Francis's bold rereading and determined implementation of the teaching of Vatican II, Richard Gaillardetz has completely revised and expanded his book By What Authority? It offers a helpful introduction to the nature and forms of church authority and their relationship to authentic Christian belief and discipleship. Gaillardetz offers theologically clear and pastorally insightful considerations of: · the character of divine revelation, the authority of Scripture and tradition · the role of the pope and bishops in preserving the Christian faith · the levels of church teaching authority, the central faith witness of all the baptized · the possibility of disagreements with church teaching, and the proper relationship between theologians, the magisterium, and the whole people of God · the authority of the believing community and the controversial questions regarding the possibility of disagreeing with church teaching.
