Romans by Grant R Osborne( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few individual books of the Bible have changed the course of church history the way Paul's letter to the Romans has. Whether we think of Augustine's conversion in the fourth century, Luther's recovery of justification by faith in the sixteenth or Barth's challenge to reestablish the primacy of theological exegesis of the Bible in the twentieth, Romans has been the catalyst to personal spiritual renewal and the recapturing of gospel basics." "Paul, in seeking to bring unity and understanding between Jews and Gentiles in Rome, sets forth his most profound explication of the gospel and its meaning for the church. The letter's relevance is as great today as it was in the first century." "In this careful study of Romans, readers will find an introduction that sets the letter in context and surveys its general content, highlighting issues surrounding its authorship, date, occasion and purpose. Passage-by-passage commentary follows that explains what the letter means to us today as well as what it meant for its original hearers." "Students, pastors, Bible teachers and everyone who wants to understand Paul's message for the church will benefit from this excellent resource."--Jacket

Revelation by Grant R Osborne( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Korean and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Book of Revelation contains some of the most difficult passages in Scripture. Grant Osborne's commentary on Revelation aims to interpret the text while also introducing readers to the perspectives of contemporary scholarship in a clear and accessible manner. Osborne begins with a thorough introduction to Revelation and the many difficulties involved in its interpretation. He discusses authorship, date of writing, and the social and cultural setting of the work. He also examines elements that complicate the interpretation of apocalyptic literature, including the use of symbols and figures of speech, Old Testament allusions, and the role of prophetic prediction. Osborne surveys various approaches commentators have taken on whether Revelation refers primarily to the past or to events that are yet future. Osborne avoids an overly technical interpretative approach. Rather than exegeting the text narrowly in a verse-by-verse manner, he examines larger sections in order to locate and emphasize the writer's central message and the theology found therein. Throughout, he interacts with the best recent scholarship and presents his conclusions in an accessible manner. When dealing with particularly problematic sections, he considers the full range of suggested interpretations and introduces the reader to a broad spectrum of commentators. As with all volumes published in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, Revelation seeks to reach a broad audience with scholarly research from a decidedly evangelical perspective. Each volume in the BECNT series interacts with the best contemporary scholarship, offering up-to-date, accurate, and authoritative analysis of the Greek text through rigorous exegesis and exposition. Central themes are developed throughout, and each exegetical unit is related to the overall message of the biblical book. Pastors and seminarians especially appreciate the combination of broad overview and in-depth analysis found in BECNT volumes, but the series is also popular with scholars and thoughtful lay readers"--Publisher description
Revelation verse by verse by Grant R Osborne( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of Revelation tends to both fascinate and confuse us with its vivid and strange imagery. When we turn to trusted scholars for help, the widely divergent interpretations of the book can sometimes cause us to throw our hands in the air and stop reading. Are the visions to be taken literally or symbolically? Do they depict events from the first century or are they future, just before Jesus' return? In Revelation Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne cuts through the confusion and offers a clear exposition of the book, explaining what it meant in its first-century setting and what it means today. Instead of being a frightening or befuddling book, Osborne urges us to see Revelation as highly devotional, causing readers to focus on the sovereignty of God, the futility of Satan, and the ultimate victory of the Lamb and his saints. --

Colossians & Philemon : verse by verse by Grant R Osborne( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the apostle Paul was in prison, he wrote to the Colossian Christians to help them maintain their focus on the lordship of Jesus against the claims of false teachers that had snuck in among them. At the same time as he sent this letter to the wider church, he also sent a short letter to his friend and coworker Philemon that displays Paul⁰́₉s masterful skill at conflict resolution. In Colossians & Philemon Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne carefully and accessibly makes sense of these two important letters, while at the same time drawing on his years of scholarly research on the New Testament. The result is a clear exposition of Colossians and Philemon, explaining what they meant in their first-century setting and what they mean today. --

Perspectives on the extent of the atonement : 3 views( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perspectives on the Extent of the Atonement presents a point-counterpoint exchange concerning God's intention in sending Christ to die on the cross. All three contributors recognize a substitutionary element in the atoning work of Christ, but disagree over the nature and objects of that substitution. Carl Trueman (Westminster Theological Seminary) argues that Christ's atoning work secured the redemption of his elect alone. While infinite in value, Christ's death was intended for and applied strictly to those whom the Father had elected unconditionally in eternity past. John Hammett (Southeastern
Mark by Grant R Osborne( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark's concern in his Gospel is that his readers know the good news of who Jesus is: God's Son and suffering Messiah. It is a book of action, demonstrating Jesus's identity with a strong emphasis on what he did -- acts of service and of power that often left onlookers amazed. Inherent in this revelation of Jesus's identity is a call to radical discipleship fueled by total dependence on him. Renowned scholar Grant R. Osborne provides keen insights to help preachers and teachers bring Mark's important message to life for today's listeners. To craft informed sermons, pastors scour commentaries that often deal more with minutia than the main point. Or they turn to devotional commentaries, which may contain exegetical weaknesses. The Teach the Text Commentary Series bridges this gap by utilizing the best of biblical scholarship and providing the information a pastor needs to communicate the text effectively. By keeping the discussion of each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes in this series allow pastors to quickly grasp the big idea and key themes of each passage of Scripture. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos. - Publisher
