A theology of the New Testament by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

54 editions published between 1957 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ladd's magisterial work on New Testament theology has well served thousands of seminary students ever since its publication in 1974. Enhanced and updated here by Donald A. Hagner, this comprehensive, standard evangelical text now features augmented bibliographies and two completely new chapters on subjects that Ladd himself wanted to treat in a revised edition--the theology of each of the Synoptic Evangelists and the issue of unity and diversity in the New Testament--written, respectively, by R.T. France and David Wenham
The New Testament and criticism by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

22 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and Korean and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One unfortunate consequence of the bitter fundamentalist-modernist controversy which raged in the early twenties has been the strongly negative attitude toward Biblical criticism assumed by some of the successors to the fundamentalists of the 1920s. Such people, according to the author, insist that the critical method is basically hostile to the evangelical faith, and they have continued to oppose any use of it. Others, however, claiming the same heritage, believe that the orthodox interpretation of the Gospel can be defended positively and constructively only with the aid of a sound critical method and the results of critical scholarship. The author believes that an evangelical Biblical criticism is not only possible but necessary. The central thesis of his book is that "the Bible is the Word of God given in the words of men in history", and as such its historical origins must be reconstructed as far as possible. In this way a richer understanding of the Scriptures can be achieved

The presence of the future; the eschatology of biblical realism by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Eldon Ladd's comprehensive treatment of New Testament eschatology has become the definitive discussion of the theological interpretation known as "inaugurated eschatology." Reflecting profound biblical insight and a balanced treatment of conflicting views, this volume convincingly develops Ladd's thesis that the kingdom of God involves two great movements -- its present fulfillment in Jesus and its future consummation in the last days. Ladd begins this revised edition (formerly titled Jesus and the Kingdom) by taking readers step by step through the findings of his predecessors and contemporaries on the great debate as to whether the kingdom of God promised by Jesus is now, in the immediate future, or in some unknown time to come. He then traces the prophetic expectation of the kingdom in the Old Testament, pursues the development of this expectation through the intertestamental literature, and, against this background, reconstructs the teaching and mission of Jesus. Ultimately, Ladd finds the key to understanding the kingdom in the concept of "the rule of God." His interpretation of the divine reign brings together the Old Testament promise of the kingdom, its fulfillment in history, and its consummation at the end of history. - Back cover
I believe in the resurrection of Jesus by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

The gospel of the kingdom; scriptural studies in the kingdom of God by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

17 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ladd, whose work has included much technical study of the doctrine of the kingdom, here presents a practical and devotional scriptural study of the many aspects of the kingdom, based on the parables, the Sermon on the Mount, and other key passages"--The publisher
The blessed hope by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

14 editions published between 1956 and 1990 in English and Korean and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus Christ is coming again! That is the Blessed Hope which has since the earliest days of the Church energized Biblical Christians looking for the full revelation of God's redemption. The author sketches the history of interpretations of Christ's second coming and then carefully and lucidly examines the Biblical passages on which this doctrine is based. His conclusion is that the Blessed Hope is the second coming of Jesus Christ, not a pretribulation rapture that believers in a secret coming of Jesus. Yet he concludes that there should be liberty and charity within the Christian community for all who hold to the expectation of "the blessed hope and appearing in glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ."
The last things : an eschatology for Laymen by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are two traditional interpretations of the relationship between the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments. One sees separate tracts for Israel and the Christian church; the other view recognizes a progressive revelation and a unity of the Testaments. George Eldon Ladd holds the latter view and asserts that: "our final word ... is to be found in the New Testament reinterpretation of the Old Testament prophecy." Only as the prophecies are seen in the light of God's revelation through Christ can we clearly understand what they mean in relation to the end times
Unity and diversity in New Testament theology : essays in honor of George E. Ladd( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crucial questions about the kingdom of God; the sixth annual mid-year lectures of 1952 delivered at Western Conservative Baptist Theological Seminary of Portland, Oregon by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

13 editions published between 1952 and 1998 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the purposes of publication, each lecture has been divided into two chapters. With the exception of the last two chapters, the study is centered in our Lord's teachings, for the kingdom of God is one of the most central themes in his Evangel. It will appear to many to be a weakness that so little appeal is made to the Old Testament prophecies; but I am convinced that we must interpret the Old Testament by the New and not vice versa, and this procedure has been deliberately followed. - Author's foreword
The pattern of New Testament truth by George Eldon Ladd( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author addresses himself in this book to the problem of differences and similarities in the theologies of the New Testament writers, and seeks to show in this examination what he calls the pattern of New Testament truth. He argues against an overemphasis upon Gnosticism in the study of the background of the New Testament; and then goes on to consider a philosophical movement, prevalent during the first century, about which much more is known -- Greek dualism, especially as expressed by Plato, Plutarch and Philo. He points out the differences between Greek and New Testament thought, and goes on to contrast the Greek view of reality with that of the Hebrews, which he concludes to be essentially that of the New Testament
