New Book Endorsement

“For nearly a century, only a handful of scholars have published manuals for the exegesis of the Hebrew Bible. How to Understand and Apply the Old Testament surpasses all previous works with its biblical-theological orientation, purposeful organization, depth of analytical guidance, clarity of explanation, illustrative examples, and direction regarding interpretive implications. DeRouchie walks the aspiring exegete and expositor through the steps of a text-focused, genre-aware, and context-sensitive methodology. No matter what one’s theological views might be on any particular text, this volume gives users superb guidance for interpreting the Old Testament. I commend it to every teacher and student of Hebrew exegesis as the best textbook available.” — My published endorsement inside the book

Searching for Adam, ed. by Terry Mortenson (Master Books, 2016) now available on Kindle (save an additional 60% off the price–and no shipping–instant acquisition–click on the book’s image at the left). The first printing (hard copy, paperback) sold out in less than eight weeks after coming out in early November. A new run is in the press. The first chapter, “Old Testament Evidence for a Literal, Historical Adam and Eve” (pp. 17-52), is mine. To read the full description, see my earlier post about the hard copy.

Keep on praying that God allows this book to be used in a mighty way in the current debate on the historicity of the biblical Adam and Eve.

Biblical Doctrine Volume Now Available

My contributor’s copy of Biblical Doctrine: A Systematic Survey of Bible Truth, edited by John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue has finally arrived! The hefty volume (1023 pages) fills 2-1/4 inches of horizontal shelf space. The Master’s Seminary faculty members involved in producing section drafts for the volume included Dr. Nathan Busenitz, Dr. Jim Mook, Dr. Bryan Murphy, Dr. Michael Vlach, Prof. Michael Riccardi, and myself. It’s a great joy to see my 167-page draft turn into 98 pages of print, but the greatest joy involves the long-term potential of the volume making a significant impact upon the readers’ theological thinking through this systematic exploration of Scripture. As Dr. MacArthur and Dr. Mayhue write in the Preface, our prayer matches that of the apostle Paul’s in Ephesians 1:17-19. Yes, may the Spirit of God Himself enlighten our understanding of God’s written Word. Thank you to all of you who have been praying for the production of this volume and who have encouraged the editors and writers to see it through to completion.

Books I’ve Endorsed

This post presents all of the books for which I have written endorsements published inside the book or on its cover. The authors of these volumes asked for my endorsement and I gave it only after carefully reading their work to be certain that I would not be sorry that I did so. That does not mean that I always agree 100% with each volume’s content. It does mean, however, that I heartily recommend the book for others who seek good Christian materials for personal study or for use as textbooks in the classrooms of our schools and churches.

Each thumbnail of the cover is the link for that volume on Amazon. For digital materials, that link sometimes leads to other publishers, such as FaithLife. The arrangement is alphabetical by the surname of the author. As I write new endorsements, I will add to this post in the future.

Over the years God has given me the opportunity to write. Many of the items listed under this site’s Publications consist of journal articles published by The Master’s Seminary Journal. The list I’ve created, however, consists of books I have written or to which I have contributed. If the Lord allows me to do so, I hope to continue adding to this list.
