God's New Society
Turkish Title: Efesliler'in Mesajı
Original Title: The Message of Ephesians
Author: John Stott
A new and better society has been the constant dream of men and women. Responding to this dream, John Stott has been attracted back again and again by Paul's letter to the young church at Ephesus. It portrays a new society of Christ's making that stands out in bright relief against our colourless world of oppression, heartache, separation and division. Paul's letter, with its exultant vision of a renewed human community, has, says John Stott, 'stirred me deeply'.
Power in Weakness
Turkish Title: 2.Korintliler'in Mesajı
Original Title: The Message of 2 Corinthians
Author: Paul Barnett
The Bible Speaks Today series.
The letter of 2 Corinthians is important, Paul Barnett believes, for its magnificent message that God's power is brought to people in their weakness, not in human strength. This momentous theme emerges in a dramatic real-life situation. The apostle confronts shadowy opponents who had recently come to Corinth and formed an alliance with some of the church leaders and members. His letter is a fascinating record of that conflict.
Life in the Local Church
Turkish Title: 1. Korintliler'in Mesajı
Original Title: The Message of 1 Corinthians
Author: David Prior
David Prior, in this fresh and gripping exposition, writes first of all as a pastor. His conviction is that 1 Corinthians is uniquely a tract for our times. His aim is that churches will recognise the problems and tensions inherent in being God's people in the increasingly urban world today, and not be ignorant of the true spirituality that is the work of the Holy Spirit. He wishes for each of them as a body to grow to express the total lordship of Christ.
Grace - commentary on Galatians
Turkish Title: Lütuf (Galatyalılar Mektup Üzerine Bir Yorum Çalışması)
Translation of Title: Grace (A Commentary on Galatians)
Author: İhsan Özbek
One of the biggest problems mankind has is its insistence on trying to solve its own problems. Starting with Adam, mankind has wanted to make all of its own decisions, at important points in life, independently of God. The result has always been sin.
This commentary has been written by a Turkish pastor.
Studies in Acts
Turkish Title: Mesih'in Zafer Alayı
Original Title: The Triumphal Procession of Christ
Author: Abd al-Masih
In Acts we see the leaders of the church acting as a team, like in a relay race. Each one passes the flame of the Gospel on to another, until the message of salvation reaches all of the big cities. In this way the theme of Acts is "the true and triumphal spread and procession of the Good News of Salvation, under the guidance of the living Christ, from Jerusalem to Rome."
