1. Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope

2021 Christian Book Award program – Faith and Culture2020 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Finalist – Religion2021 Outreach Resources of the Year – Christian Living2021 Christianity Today Book Award – Beautiful Orthodoxy2020 The Gospel Coalition Book Award – Popular Theology – Honorable Mention 2020 Emerging Public Intellectual AwardGrowing up in the American South, Esau McCaulley knew firsthand the ongoing struggle between despair and hope that marks the lives of some in the African American context.

A key element in the fight for hope, he discovered, has long been the practice of Bible reading and interpretation that comes out of traditional Black churches. This ecclesial tradition is often disregarded or viewed with suspicion by much of the wider church and academy, but it has something vital to say.

Reading While Black is a personal and scholarly testament to the power and hope of Black biblical interpretation. At a time in which some within the African American community are questioning the place of the Christian faith in the struggle for justice, New Testament scholar McCaulley argues that reading Scripture from the perspective of Black church tradition is invaluable for connecting with a rich faith history and addressing the urgent issues of our times.


2. Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible

Author: by E. Randolph Richards

Bookwi.Se’s Favorite Books of the Year, Non-FictionWhat was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text.

For example:When Western readers hear Paul exhorting women to “dress modestly,” we automatically think in terms of sexual modesty. But most women in that culture would never wear racy clothing. The context suggests that Paul is likely more concerned about economic modesty-that Christian women not flaunt their wealth through expensive clothes, braided hair and gold jewelry.

Some readers might assume that Moses married “below himself” because his wife was a dark-skinned Cushite. Actually, Hebrews were the slave race, not the Cushites, who were highly respected. Aaron and Miriam probably thought Moses was being presumptuous by marrying “above himself.”Western individualism leads us to assume that Mary and Joseph traveled alone to Bethlehem.

6. Demons: What the Bible Really Says About the Powers of Darkness

Author: by Michael S. Heiser

View on Amazon

The truth about demons is far stranger-and even more fascinating-than what’s commonly believed.Are demons real? Are they red creatures with goatees holding pitchforks and sitting on people’s shoulders while whispering bad things? Did a third of the angels really rebel with Satan?

Are demons and “principalities and powers” just terms for the same entities, or are they different members of the kingdom of darkness? Is the world a chaotic mess because of what happened in Eden, or is there more to the story of evil?

What people believed about evil spiritual forces in ancient biblical times is often very different than what people have been led to believe about them today. And this ancient worldview is missing from most attempts to treat the topic. In Demons, Michael Heiser debunks popular presuppositions about the very real powers of darkness.

Rather than traditions, stories, speculations, or myths, Demons is grounded in what ancient people of both the Old and New Testament eras believed about evil spiritual forces and in what the Bible actually says. You’ll come away with a sound, biblical understanding of demons, supernatural rebellion, evil spirits, and spiritual warfare.

9. Galatians

View on Amazon

The first major biblical commentary from the pen of N.T. Wright While full of theological import, Paul’s letter to the Galatians also captures and memorializes a significant moment in the early history of Christianity. This commentary from N.T.

Wrightthe inaugural volume of the CCF seriesoffers a theological interpretation of Galatians that never loses sight of the political concerns of its historical context. With these two elements of the letter in dialogue with each other, readers can understand both what Paul originally meant and how his writing might be faithfully used to respond to present questions.

Each section of verse-by-verse commentary in this volume is followed by Wright’s reflections on what the text says about Christian formation today, making this an excellent resource for individual readers and those preparing to teach or preach on Galatians. The focus on formation is especially appropriate for this biblical letter, in which Paul wrote to his fellow early Christians, My childrenI seem to be in labor with you all over again, until the Messiah is fully formed in you!

The study of Enoch’s words awakened the desire to explore spiritual dimensions in a deeper way. Enoch once said: I write not for my own, but for the extreme future generations, for you human beings who will come. Enoch, the seventh of Adam’s descendants describes his journey through the seven heavens, where he receives revelations like when he is described the creation of the world and the secrets of the future.

Enoch’s journey culminates with the encounter with God after a life that lasted 365 years. From the mists of time he has shown humanity a luminous path to follow. Enoch goes back to the causes of evil and great are his sufferings for human wickedness and his exhortations to cultivate good and wisdom.

All his writings, which are reported alongside the interpretation of History Academy, were found and collected in the time before the birth of Christ. Not recognized by the Church and ignored in the Old Testament collection, they are now published for everyone to read.
