A New Release to Deepen Your NT Knowledge

blombergWORDsearch has just released a new, 2-volume survey of the New Testament by distinguished professor and scholar Dr. Craig Blomberg. These survey volumes are used as textbooks in seminaries and Bible colleges around the world. Volume 1,  Jesus and the Gospels 2nd Edition covers the first 4 books of the NT. Volume 2, From Pentecost to Patmos covers the remaining books of the NT. For the next 14 days, each of these volumes is half-priced at just $19.95. Or, you can save even more by taking both volumes in The Blomberg NT Survey Bundle for only $29.95. Click here for details, or call us at 1-800-888-9898. Mention special offer 8018.

Here’s What Dr. Blomberg’s NT Survey Will Do for You:

Blomberg’s comments for each book of the NT begin with introductory considerations. He builds on this with an abbreviated commentary on the most central, interesting, relevant and/or controversial details of the book. Finally, passage-by-passage (and at times even verse-by-verse) he comments with footnotes to where specific concepts originate or to where extended discussion of issues may be found. You’ll also find brief remarks with respect to the contemporary application of each book and a selective bibliography of works for further study. The result is that you’ll come to better understand first-century Christianity and the literature it produced that came to be sacred Scripture. This will give you a more complete appreciation of our Lord Jesus Christ. Click here for more details.

The next time you’re in WORDsearch, remember this tip and you may be pleasantly surprised!

Making Sense of the Strange and Bizarre
It has been said that the Bible is a book of bizarre events and strange mysteries. We find angels and demons, giants and dragons, seven-headed beasts rising from the sea and human-faced locusts coming out of the abyss. We find floods, fire and brimstone. The mighty river Nile turns blood red. A powerful wind rolls back the sea and an entire nation walks through on dry land. Iron ax-heads float and dead people come back to life. This is strange stuff indeed! Grasping God’s Word will help you make sense of it all.

The Proper Ways to Approach Scripture
Authors Dr. J.Scott Duvall and Dr. J. Daniel Hays are professors of Old and New Testament at Ouachita Baptist University. I was astonished at how thoroughly they cover the subject of interpreting and applying Scripture. You’ll learn how to:

  • Handle verbs (where the action is), both active verbs and passive verbs
  • Recognize repetition of words
  • Understand context in the Word
  • Identify contrasts, comparisons, conjunctions and pronouns
  • Interpret figures of speech
  • Apply what you learn in a practical way
  • And much more!

Grasping God’s Word contains many visual aids to help you identify key words to study and other helpful techniques. You’ll even find recommended assignments to put what you learn into practice. Take advantage of this 14-day introductory sale and add Grasping God’s Word to your digital library today. Just click here.
