Finally, A Commentary by South Asian Scholars for South Asian Readers

Jeremy Bouma on 1 year ago. Tagged under ,,,.

South Asia Bible CommentarySeveral years ago an American friend worked with pastors in Ukraine, offering ministry encouragement and strategic insights. At his first meeting he was greeted by a baseball diamond diagram popularized by an American book helping churches supercharge their ministry. They were using it to help guide their Eastern European churches.

He thought the baseball analogy was contextually out of place. Instead of importing American ministry strategies, he encouraged these leaders to create contextual ones for their indigenous ministries.

The same could be said for Bible commentaries.

Biblical insights from Western commentaries can be helpful elsewhere. Yet non-Western churches need resources to explain the Bible, relate its meaning to specific contexts, and apply Scripture to their life and ministry. Now we have such a resource for South Asia.

The new South…

Does the Bible Teach ‘Faith Alone’?

Jeremy Bouma on 1 year ago. Tagged under ,,,,,.

Faith AloneSola fide has been the rallying cry for generations of Christians. Yet in his new book Tom Schreiner wonders, “Does sola fide still matter today?”

Faith Alone is one of five new resources exploring the five sola rallying cries of the Reformation (including sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratis, and soli Deo gloria). In this volume Schreiner offers a historical, biblical and theological tour of the doctrine of justification.

Last week we examined one reason why ‘faith alone’ matters: the early church taught it. Schreiner makes the point, though, that “as Protestants we believe in sola scriptura. We must, in the end, turn to what the Scriptures say and cannot simply rely on tradition or interpretations from the past.” (97)

In other words, does the Bible teach faith alone?

Schreiner leads…

An Armchair Theologian’s Guide to Paul & Second Temple Judaism

Jeremy Bouma on 1 year ago. Tagged under ,,,,.

reading romans in contextFive years ago I witnessed one of the most significant shifts in Pauline studies coming to roost at the heart of evangelical theological engagement, the Evangelical Theological Society’s 2010 annual meeting on “The New Perspective on Paul.”

At the time I was finishing my MDiv. Though I appreciated the conference, I got a bit lost in the technical jargon surrounding Paul and Second Temple Judaism. I remember wishing for a nontechnical resource to assist in connecting Paul to his Jewish contemporaries. The new Reading Romans in Context is the book I was waiting for.

Ministry practitioners, students, and armchair theologians alike will find this illuminating, approachable guide useful in exploring Pauline theology’s relationship to Second Temple Judaism. Essays pair a Romans passage with its thematically related…

Paul Has 5 Things to Say to Rich Christians

Jeremy Bouma on 1 year ago. Tagged under ,,.

Paul and MoneyOdds are you are among the richest 1% in the world, probably close to the top 25% in America.

Paul has a message for you.

This message comes to us through Keith Krell’s and the late Verlyn Verbrugge’s new book Paul and Money—a biblical and theological analysis of Paul’s teachings and practices on how financial matters intersect with our lives.

One of those matters addresses the question, “Did Paul have an independent message…for Christians who had wealth? The answer to this question is a resounding yes.” (242)

They reveal 5 important things about this message, which have great bearing on the financial lives of most Christians

1) Money-Love Roots Evil

We’ve all heard one of Paul’s more pointed instructions:…
