Revelation is probably the most read, but least understood book of the Bible. History is replete with examples of how not to interpret it, and books featuring end-of-world prophecy claims based on Revelation consistently top the bestseller lists. But how can the message of such an enigmatic book be applied to our lives today? In Discipleship on the Edge, Darrell W. Johnson drives home the challenging and practical message of Revelation in thirty carefully crafted sermons. Paying careful attention to the original context of Revelation and the circumstances surrounding its composition, Johnson shows that the book is not a "crystal ball" but rather a "discipleship manual." Thoroughly researched and yet accessible, this collection of sermons is a helpful resource for pastors and small group leaders who are looking for models to help them preach and teach the message of Revelation in a time when there is much confusion about the end times. Darrell W. Johnson is Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A popular conference and retreat speaker, he has also served as the preaching pastor for a number of congregations in North America and the Philippines, as well as serving as Adjunct Professor of Preaching for the Doctor of Ministry program at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. His other books include Experiencing the Trinity and Spurgeon on Preaching.

This volume deals with the varied forms of shame reflected in biblical, theological, psychological and anthropological sources. Although traditional theology and church practice concentrate on providing forgiveness for shameful behavior, recent scholarship has discovered the crucial relevance of social shame evoked by mental status, adversity, slavery, abuse, illness, grief and defeat. Anthropologists, sociologists, and psychologists have discovered that unresolved social shame is related to racial and social prejudice, to bullying, crime, genocide, narcissism, post-traumatic stress and other forms of toxic behavior. Eleven leaders in this research participated in a conference on The Shame Factor, sponsored by St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Lincoln, NE in October 2010. Their essays explore the impact and the transformation of shame in a variety of arenas, comprising in this volume a unique and innovative resource for contemporary religion, therapy, ethics, and social analysis.

This book fills part of the gap that has long existed between the most widely known poem of John Milton, Paradise Lost, and everything else he wrote (writing that fills 18 volumes). It focuses specifically on his other, shorter poetry rather than his two other mature works at the end of his career (Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes). Uniquely, the essays in this volume confine themselves to Milton's earlier career, before hepublished his first volume of poetry in 1645. The `young Milton', a student-poet writing experimenting in languages other than English, receives full attention, as does the post-graduate Milton, who contributes his most famous shortpoem in English, `Lycidas' to a Cambridge University memorial volume. The book also looks at the maturing man in several of the essays, one who writes an elegy in memory of his niece, and one who exchanges letters with arguably his closest friend Charles Diodati. In an important and overdue way, the contributors to this book evaluate the writing of the early career on its own merit and on its own terms.

Revelation is a book that many Christians find confusing due to the foreign nature of its apocalyptic imagery. It is a book that has prompted endless discussions about the 'end times' with theological divisions forming around epicenters such as the rapture and the millennium. In this book, the award-winning author Gordon Fee excavates the layers of symbolic imagery and provides an exposition of Revelation that is clear, easy to follow, convincing, and engaging. Fee shows us how John's message confronts the world with the revelation of Jesus Christ so that Christians might see themselves as caught up in the drama of god's triumph over sin, evil, and death. Fee draws us into the world of John and invites us to see the world through John's eyes as the morbid realities of this world have the joyous realities of heaven cast over them. In this latest instalment in the new covenant commentary series we see one of North America's best evangelical exegetes at his very best. Gordon D. Fee is Professor Emeritus at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada. He received BA and MA degrees from Seattle Pacific University and was ordained in the Assemblies of God church in 1959. He is the author of several volumes including God's Empowering Presence, Pauline Christology, and New Testament Exegesis. 'Gordon Fee has trained a generation of scholars and pastors in the art of biblical interpretation. In this volume, this master exegete applies his skills to guide the reader through one of the most often misunderstood books of the New Testament. Fee writes a commentary on Revelation - not a commentary on commentaries on Revelation - that provides an engaging, readable exposition of this text that lay persons will find immediately accessible. His personality shines through on every page, so that the reader does not merely encounter 'material, ' but also the faithful teacher behind the material. Fee's personal involvement in the translation of the NIV 2011 makes this volume particularly valuable as a commentary on this English version.' - David A. DeSilva, Professor of New Testament and Greek, Ashland Theological Seminary
