Description : “Jesus was more than simply a kindly fellow wandering around the hills of Galilee. He is the image of the unseen God.”—From Chapter Two What do you think of Jesus? Do you think of him at all? Maybe you're too busy or you've lost interest or you've betrayed his friendship. Maybe you think there's nothing more to discover or maybe you think there is but don't know where to start. George Martin offers some good news: It's never too late to get to know Jesus. Jesus is near to you and passionately concerned about your well-being. In these short, lively reflections, Martin explores Scripture to reveal how Jesus demonstrates his mercy, comfort, strength and forgiveness, and how, time and again, he leads us out of our anxieties into his steadfast presence.

Description : Scripture commentator George Martin leaves no stone uncovered in his fascinating exploration of the Gospel of Mark. His verse-by-verse explanations are easy to understand and always begin and end with the premise that God has something to say to his people through his word. The book features interesting details relating to the history, geography, and culture of Palestine, along with definitions of the root meaning of words used by Mark and references to parallel passages in the Old and New Testaments. Reflection questions provide plenty of opportunity for going deeper with God in prayer. This commentary is sound and well-researched, but not overly academic, so it allows readers to study the Scriptures and pray through them at the same time. (Formerly published as The Gospel According to Mark: Meaning and Message.)

Description : Bringing the Gospel of Luke to Life, Insight and Inspiration "Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?" -- Luke 24:32 The Gospel of Luke can similarly come to life for us when, as twenty-first century Christians, we have a teacher who will share his insights into its original first-century meaning and context. George Martin, a gifted Catholic writer on Scripture, employs commonsense vocabulary and concepts as he focuses on what Luke's words meant when he wrote them, with an eye toward their meaning for our times. Whether you practice lectio divina, prepare and preach homilies, lead or participate in Bible study groups, are a Scripture teacher or seminarian, you will find George Martin to be an enlightening and accessible resource. "George Martin's expositions of the Gospels are written with admirable clarity. They interpret each Gospel in its first-century context, convey the best insights of modern scholars, and challenge readers to apply the text to their own lives." -- Daniel Harrington, S.J., Boston College School of Theology and Ministry

Description : A prophetic challenge to the Western church. The Christian faith is always subversive to the dominant world view. Jesus overturned every assumption which stopped people experiencing the living reality of God - the heart of truth. Sadly, the Western world has reduced "truth" to the merely rational, and then discarded it as inadequate. In Africa, and other parts of the world where God's truth has never been straitjacketed in this way, the church is characterised by a joy now absent in the West. Western culture has limited what we can believe and receive. Can we: Burst free from this restrictive secular framework? Learn not only to know truth, but to feel it, and live it? Live our faith in such a way that it becomes real to those around us? Alison Morgan shows that Jesus lived free from the culturally imposed norms which restrict our understanding of truth. Examining church history, prophecy past and present, the state of our culture and of the church today, and drawing on personal experience and the experience of others, Alison blends analysis and imagination, history and poetry in this prophetic challenge to Western Christians.

Whether you practice prayerful reading (lectio divina), prepare homilies, lead or participate in Bible study groups, are a Scripture teacher or seminarian, you will find George Martin to be an enlightening and accessible guide to Mark's Gospel.

Description : The previously untold story of Matthew's Gospel - brought to life for today's readers. Matthew's Gospel stands as the first book of the Christian Testament, visible to all the world for almost two thousand years. But there is something hidden in Matthew's Gospel. The document was not written at one time by one person - it is an edited document, bringing together different sources of tradition. The Hidden Gospel of Matthew: Annotated and Explained takes readers deep into the text to find the words and events that have the strongest connection to the historical Jesus. Ron Miller reveals the underlying story of Matthew to readers, giving them a full appreciation of the book's message, uncovering a portrait of Jesus that at times resembles the gnostic Christ and sage teacher of the Gospel of Thomas more than it does traditional Christianity.
