26 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This much-anticipated sixth edition of New Testament Commentary Survey offers students and pastors an updated look into available resources on the New Testament. Pastors, seminarians, and theology students will eagerly welcome the invaluable tool into their biblical studies libraries.

He records the publisher, price, and current publication status, identifies those texts he considers overpriced, and advises readers when to delay purchase for forthcoming works. The book concludes with a useful "Best Buys" section where Carson indicates the most valuable works for each individual New Testament book
Biblical Greek language and linguistics : open questions in current research by Stanley E Porter( )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays brings together into one volume papers from the Society of Biblical Literature meetings in 1990 and 1991. This volume divides itself neatly into two sections. Part I, Verbal Aspect, includes two major presentations and responses on the topic of Greek verbal aspect. The subject is an important one, and one that promises not to go away in the next several years. If the proponents of the theory are correct, the semantic category of verbal aspect will prove vital to future analysis and exegesis of Greek, including that of the New Testament. Part II includes four substantial papers on various topics in Greek grammar and linguistics, including work on discourse analysis, construction grammar, the phrase as a constituent in Greek grammatical description and the possible Semitic origins of the finite verb with cognate participle. These interesting and varied essays are designed both to illustrate the current state of discussion of New Testament Greek grammar and to provide impetus for future research and publication
Discourse analysis and other topics in Biblical Greek by Stanley E Porter( )

This collection brings together into one volume papers first delivered in the Section on Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics at the Society of Biblical Literature annual meetings in 1992 and 1993. Part I, on discourse analysis, includes an introductory survey of the field, followed by three major papers and two responses. Each author uses his particular model of discourse analysis to analyse the book of Philippians, paying particular attention to the question of unity. Part 2, on other topics in biblical Greek, includes a probing introduction on the nature of language and five papers on a
An introduction to the New Testament by D. A Carson( Book )

29 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary focus of An Introduction to the New Testament is on what used to be called "special introduction"--That is, on historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth. Several recent books devote more than this one does to literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels. The authors do not minimize the importance of such topics, and they have introduced them where they directly bear on the subject at hand. But they feel that these topics are better given extended treatment in courses on exegesis, especially the exegesis of particular books. There has been too much focus on these topics at the expense of traditional questions of "introduction," and this has tended to divorce the New Testament books from their historical settings. Although the emphasis in this book is on "special introduction," the authors have included a brief outline of each New Testament document, sometimes providing a rationale for the choices they have made. In each case they have provided a brief account of current studies on the book, and indicated something of the theological contribution that each New Testament document makes to the canon. Their ultimate concern is that new generations of students will gain a better grasp of the Word of God
Exegetical fallacies by D. A Carson( Book )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I hope that by talking about what should not be done in exegesis, we may all desire more deeply to interpret the Word of God aright," says the author. "If I focus on the negative, it is in the hope that you will thereby profit more deeply from the positive instruction you glean from texts and lectures." Forty-eight kinds of fallacies are organized in this volume into four groups: (1) word-study, (2) grammatical, (3) logical, and (4) presuppositional and historical fallacies. "These pages make no claim to comprehensiveness in the kind of error discussed," writes the author. "Entries are treated because in my experience they are among the most common." Specific illustrations of fallacies abound. They are drawn from the works of liberals and conservatives, Calvinists and Arminians, unknowns and world-class scholars. "By and large my examples have been drawn from fairly serious sources, not popular publications where the frequency of error is much higher," the author writes. "But I have also included a few examples from popular preachers." This lively, enlightening, and not uncontroversial volume begins by discussing the importance of the study of exegetical fallacies, the dangers of it, and its limits. The book concludes with a list of seven areas "either not mentioned or barely alluded to in this book where more opportunities for fallacies lurk in the darkness to catch the unwary." The author has not written a highly technical book, aiming it instead at seminary students, pastors, and undergraduate Bible students with a command of elementary Greek. - Back cover

Commentary on the New Testament use of the Old Testament by Gregory K Beale( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of the New Testament often encounter quotes or allusions to Old Testament stories and prophecies that are unfamiliar or obscure. In order to fully understand the teachings of Jesus and his followers, it is important to understand the large body of Scripture that preceded and informed their thinking. Leading evangelical scholars G.K. Beale and D.A. Carson have brought together a distinguished team to provide readers with a comprehensive commentary on Old Testament quotations, allusions, and echoes that appear from Matthew through Revelation. College and seminary students, pastors, scholars, and interested lay readers will want to add this unique commentary to their reference libraries. - Publisher
The Gospel according to John by D. A Carson( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This commentary seeks above all to explain the text of John's Gospel to those whose privilege and responsibility it is to minister the Word of God to others, to preach and to lead Bible studies. I have tried to include the kind of information they need to know, but to do so in such a way that the informed layperson could also use the work in personal study of the Bible, exclusively for purposes of personal growth in edification and understanding. In particular, I have attempted: (1) To make clear the flow of the text. (2) To engage a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John. (3) To draw a few lines towards establishing how the Fourth Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology. (4) To offer a consistent exposition of John's Gospel as an evangelistic Gospel. - Preface

It is written--scripture citing scripture : essays in honour of Barnabas Lindars, SSF by Donald A Carson( Book )

28 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This festschrift aims both to survey and advance research on the use of the Hebrew Scriptures within the Bible as a whole. An international team of scholars, chosen for their expertise as well as their association with Barnabas Lindars, cover between them the major divisions of the Old Testament and Intertestamental literature as well as the writings of the New Testament. The work thus makes a contribution to such areas of interest as midrash, apocalyptic, a developing understanding of canon, the nature of prophecy and fulfilment and the literary genres used by biblical writers. It should be of interest to a broad spectrum of students and scholars of theology as well as clergy. - Publisher
Christ and culture revisited by D. A Carson( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Korean and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called to live in the world, but not of it, the balancing act for Christians becomes more precarious the further our culture departs from its Judeo-Christian roots. How should members of the church interact with such a culture, especially as deeply enmeshed as most of us have become? Here, D.A. Carson applies his masterful touch to the problem. He begins by exploring the classic typology of Reinhold Niebuhr and his five options offered for understanding culture. Carson proposes that these disparate options are in reality one still larger vision. Using the Bible's own story line and the categories of biblical theology, he attempts to work out what that unifying vision is. More than theory, however, Christ and Culture Revisited is designed practically to help Christians untangle current messy debates on living in the world. Carson further expands the discussion with numerous comparisons between the United States and cultures elsewhere. Though there are several recent books on culture that interact with Niebuhr, none takes anything like the biblical-theological approach adopted here. - Publisher

The gagging of God : Christianity confronts pluralism by D. A Carson( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an initial survey of pluralism, The Gagging of God divides into four parts: Part 1 looks at the history behind modern pluralism, especially the revolution in hermeneutics, literary theory, and epistemology; part 2 addresses religious pluralism, notably the work of John Hick and David Tracy, and considers inclusivists such as Clark Pinnock and John Sanders. It argues for the Bible's foundational "plot-line" that resists liberal interpretations, and it explores what is meant by the uniqueness of Christ; part 3 analyzes the Christian's stance in a pluralistic culture across such diverse fields as education, law, and morals; and part 4 looks at how pluralism has penetrated the evangelical camp. It considers particular issues, such as the modern church's aversion to the subject of hell, and addresses the broader questions raised by contextualization and globalization. It offers a thoughtful look at how to evangelize in a postmodern generation. The Gagging of God presents a persuasive case for Christ as not merely one among many ways, but the only way for people to come to a saving knowledge of God

20 editions published between 1983 and 2002 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New York Times of March 14, 1982, in a front-page article describes the emergence of "mainstream evangelicals" as a major force in U.S. Protestantism. Citing Carl F.H. Henry, it lists first among the four challenges facing Evangelicals today the question of biblical authority. Scripture and Truth is a serious and competent contribution to dialogue and reflection on this important issue. --
The intolerance of tolerance by D. A Carson( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carson traces the subtle but enormous shift in the way we have come to understand tolerance over recent years--from defending the rights of those who hold different beliefs to affirming all beliefs as equally valid and correct. He looks back at the history of this shift and discusses its implications for culture today, especially its bearing on democracy, discussions about good and evil, and Christian truth claims. --from publisher description
