Explore “the other world view” with Dr. Peter Jones
According to Peter Jones, all the religions and philosophies of the world can be divided into two basic worldviews. These two perspectives differ on the fundamental nature of reality. Is everything essentially one? Or does an irreducible distinction exist between creation and Creator?
In The Other Worldview, Jones explains the difference between what he calls “Oneism” and “Twoism.” He exposes the pagan roots of Oneism, and he traces its spread and influence throughout Western culture. Most importantly, he shows us why Oneism is incapable of saving anyone or truly changing the world for the better.

Keep exploring Galatians
Want more on Galatians? The Lexham Bible Guide: Galatians is your starting point for study and research. It surveys all the relevant literature on a passage and brings the summary back to you. This guide summarizes a broad range of views on a particular passage—views you may or may not agree with, but in all cases, views you will encounter as you critically study the text.
Dr. H. Drake Williams III of Tyndale Theological Seminary says, “This is a great beginning work for deeper studies within Galatians.”
The New American Commentary
In its attempt to make a unique contribution to the Christian community, the New American Commentary focuses on two concerns. First, the commentary emphasizes how each section of a book fits together so that the reader becomes aware of the theological unity of each book and of Scripture as a whole. The writers, however, remain aware of the Bible’s inherently rich variety. Second, the New American Commentary is produced with the conviction that the Bible primarily belongs to the church. Scholarship and the academy provide an indispensable foundation for biblical understanding and the service of Christ, but the editors and authors of this series have attempted to communicate the findings of their research in a manner that will build up the whole body of Christ. Thus, the commentary concentrates on theological exegesis, while providing practical, applicable exposition.
“The New American Commentary belongs on every pastor’s shelf and in every church library.” —Professor David E. Aune, University of Notre Dame

Prefer to learn through reading?
Dr. Edwards wrote Effective First Person Biblical Preaching to help you discover a creative way to reach people who tune out traditional sermons. A large portion of the Bible is narrative. This fact, coupled with our culture’s fascination with story (as evidenced by its ever-increasing consumption of television, movies, and DVDs), presents the preacher with a tremendous opportunity to communicate powerful, life-changing truth in a way that is biblically honoring and culturally relevant.
In first-person biblical preaching, the preacher enters into the story via one of the characters, bringing the biblical text to life in the imaginations of the congregation. After making a case for this type of sermon, Kent Edwards takes the reader step-by-step through the process of crafting a dynamic first-person sermon that is faithful to the text. Along the way, he gives numerous examples, answers practical questions, and identifies pitfalls to avoid. He addresses both the exegetical task and the homiletical task as they relate to this approach.
