How to read the Bible for all its worth : a guide to understanding the Bible by Gordon D Fee( Book )

53 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 1,807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes a new approach to helping a person read and study the Bible with greater understanding. In thirteen chapters the authors, both professors at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, teach the reader the rudiments of good interpretation for the various types of literature (genres) that make up the Bible. Different biblical genres require different exegetical questions and skills. Introductory chapters show the need for interpretation and give instruction on how to choose a translation. The rest of the book discusses the Epistles, the Old Testament Narratives, the Book of Acts, the Gospels, the Parables, the Old Testament legal portions, the Psalms, the Prophets, the Wisdom books, and Revelation. In each chapter there is an explanation of the nature of the genre and what makes it different from the others, keys for interpreting that genre, and finally a discussion of the hermeneutical questions it raises for today's Christian. In each section on interpretation the reader is taught what one can learn on his or her own without outside help, and then when and how to seek outside help. Part of each chapter helps the reader wrestle with the questions of application. How does a psalm addressed to God over 2500 years ago function as a word from God for today? How does one distinguish between cultural and transcultural matters in the Epistles? Does a biblical precedent serve as a norm for the church for all times? Guidelines for these and many other hermeneutical questions are given throughout the book. - Back cover

The First Epistle to the Corinthians by Gordon D Fee( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First Epistle to the Corinthians by New Testament scholar Gordon D. Fee brings his years of exegetical skill and expertise in textual criticism to bear on the first letter of Paul to the church at Corinth. It was written to replace the 1953 New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) volume on 1 Corinthians written by F.W. Grosheide, and answers some of questions and problems which have emerged since then in the interpretation of 1 Corinthians. Fee tries to place each section of the epistle in the overall development of the letter and its argument. Thus, he looks at 1 Corinthians in the context of the epistolary exchanges between Paul and the city of Corinth, focusing on the historical, cultural, and social settings. He offers insight on the possible presuppositions held by the Corinthians which shaped the letter, and argues that is must be viewed first and foremost as a letter from the apostle to a beloved church. If it is seen as a manual of church order, or a directory of public worship, or even a digest of canon law, its true message and implications will be missed
1 and 2 Timothy, Titus by Gordon D Fee( Book )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present edition of this commentary has been totally reset and rewritten to comment on the text of the New International Version (NIV). Nonetheless, it is still substantially the same as the original Good News Commentary, first published in 1984. These three letters (1 and 2 Timothy and Titus), called the Pastoral Epistles (PE) since the eighteenth century, purport to be letters from the Apostle Paul to two of his younger co-workers, whom he has left in charge of the churches in Ephesus and Crete, respectively. Since the early nineteenth century, however, when doubt was first expressed by F. Schleiermacher, a large array of arguments has been forthcoming that have called their authenticity into question, so that at present the large majority of NT (New Testament) scholars worldwide consider them not authored by Paul but by a pseudepigrapher (although a disciple of Paul), around the turn of the first century A.D. The present commentary has been written from the perspective of Pauline authorship, fully aware of the many difficulties that entails but convinced that theories of pseudepigraphy have even greater historical difficulties. - Introduction

6 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This top-quality handbook illuminates the Bible's background, contents, and interpretation. Travelers about to visit a foreign country often study a guidebook with information about that country.

Paul, the Spirit, and the people of God by Gordon D Fee( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God, this Pentecostal scholar has redefined the terms of the discussion about the Holy Spirit in a way that transcends today's paradigm of 'charismatic' or 'noncharismatic' orientation. His words are a strong reminder of what God, through his Holy Spirit, intends the church to be. ... His work is an attempt to point us back to the Bible and reinvigorate our own vision of how the Spirit mobilizes the community of believers in the local church." Wendy Murray Zoba, Associate Editor, Christianity Today (Book Cover)

The First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians by Gordon D Fee( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this commentary Gordon Fee aims first and foremost to offer a fresh exposition of the text of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. He shows the reader what is in the biblical text, what the text meant in the first century, and what it means now. Fee reveals the logic of each argument or narrative before moving on to the details of each verse, and he concludes each section with a theological-practical reflection on the meaning of the text today. Among other things, Fee explores the occasion for writing for each epistle, restoring 2 Thessalonians to the place it deserves as a full companion to the first letter, rather than merely a tagalong to 1 Thessalonians

Discovering biblical equality : complementarity without hierarchy( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discussions surrounding the roles of men and women--whether in the church, the home or society at large--never seem to end, often generating more heat than light. Such debate is still important, though, because this issue directly affects every member of Christ's body. What we believe the Bible teaches on these matters shapes nearly all we do in the church. In addition, these questions deserve further thought and reflection because neither side has won the day. In an effort to further discussion, Ronald W. Pierce and Rebecca Merrill Groothuis (general editors), with the aid of Gordon D. Fee (contributing editor), have assembled a distinguished array of twenty-six evangelical scholars firmly committed to the authority of Scripture to explore the whole range of issues--historical, biblical, theological, hermeneutical and practical. While dispelling many of the myths surrounding biblical equality, they offer a sound, reasoned case that affirms the complementarity of the sexes without requiring a hierarchy of roles. - Publisher

To what end exegesis? : essays textual, exegetical, and theological by Gordon D Fee( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-one of Fee's finest shorter works are conveniently available together in a single volume. In many ways this collection reflects Fee's own journey as a biblical scholar. The volume begins with Fee's early work in textual criticism, turns to studies more strictly exegetical in nature, and concludes with studies more theological in intent. In the course of these studies Fee explores a wide range of concerns for readers and interpreters of the New Testament, including Paul as an early trinitarian thinker, freedom and obedience according to Paul, New Testament christology and pneumatology, and much more. These fine studies amply demonstrate Fee's mastery of the exegetical task and illustrate the goal of exegesis in the service of the Christian community. Certain to be consulted and read frequently, To What End Exegesis? will provide teachers, pastors, and serious students of the Bible with a robust banquet of New Testament scholarship
Gospel and spirit : issues in New Testament hermeneutics by Gordon D Fee( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For those who believe the Scriptures are the inspired word of God with a message relevant for living today, nothing is more crucial than understanding sound principles of interpretation. Disagreement arises when people and groups differ over how one gets at that message and what that message is. In this collection of essays and lectures, Dr. Gordon Fee offers hermeneutical insights that will more effectively allow the New Testament to speak on its own terms to our situation today. This is not a collection of subjective, theoretical essays on the science of interpretation; rather, these
Philippians by Gordon D Fee( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Philippi, Paul addressed a congregation whose private internal struggles were compounded by opposition and suffering from without. Paul's strategy was to write them a letter of friendship and moral exhortation, reminding them of their "partnership in the gospel," their mutual suffering for the cause of Christ, and their need to "stand firm in one spirit."--Publisher description

Revelation : a New covenant commentary by Gordon D Fee( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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, award winning author Gordon Fee attempts to excavate the layers of symbolic imagery and provide 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 installment in the New Covenant Commentary Series we see one of North America's best evangelical exegetes at his very best" -- Publisher description
