Award-winning author Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has bachelors and masters degrees in biblical literature and pastoral ministry, as well as a doctorate in educational leadership.

In 2010 he won the ECPA Christian Book of the Year award in the Christian Education category for Christian History Made Easy. Staff comments "I like the Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy because it levels the playing field. It shows options of how to interpret prophecies in the Bible rather than saying, "This is the only way Christians believe." It has a balanced approach, which is better for small group study. It just lays out the facts of how Christians over the centuries have understood these passages." - Glen, Customer Service Manager "Stunning art and fantastic side-by-side comparison charts. The explanations and diagrams in this book make the Bible passages clear. Some end-times prophecies in the Bible were a mystery even to the biblical writers. No wonder people have varying interpretations today. It's good to survey what Bible scholars think about each Bible verse, rather than having just one viewpoint pushed on you." - Gene, Operations Manager "This book does an amazing job in clarifying and comparing the different Christian views. It's very insightful and highly visually appealing." - Sergio, Design Director "Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy gave me choices. It showed the different ways of understanding the Book of Daniel and Revelation. And it helped me know what each viewpoint really teaches. A lot of people know only one part of a view, but they don't understand all the rest of the beliefs that go along with that view." - Gretchen, Publisher Endorsements from Seminary and Bible College Professors In the midst of eschatological debates and arguments, this book [Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy] provides a refreshingly fair and irenic approach to a difficult and sensitive topic. It will certainly help the reader understand the breadth of theological issues involved in discussing the end times. Most importantly, it places the reader's attention on the issue the Scriptures emphasizes: the glory of God and His faithfulness to His Word. Having this biblical perspective makes this book a must read for those in the church to rightly grasp the content and beauty of eschatology. Dr. Abner Chou, The Master's College, Santa Clarita, CA It doesn't take long for a discussion of the end times to get kooky, hyper-complex, or both. If you're afraid to talk about the last days because you're afraid you'll wind up gazing at byzantine prophecy charts or listening to someone talk about how you ought to be storing up food and weapons, this book is for you. Timothy Paul Jones, one of the most brilliant scholars in the Christian world, takes the words of Jesus seriously, all of them, including the ones about the end. He takes them so seriously that he refuses to hide them under a bushel of scholarly jargon or of sensationalistic hype. Read and be blessed. Russell D. Moore, Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Kudos to Dr. Timothy Paul Jones – he has taken a difficult subject and presented it concisely, clearly, and colorfully. Jones’s book offers the fruit of scholarship and research in such a way that both scholar and non-scholar alike can read and profit. He is eminently measured and fair in his presentation of the various views that Christians have held on prophecy and the future. I especially appreciate how Jones allows the reader to see representative views, on topic after topic, speak for themselves. Here is the book [Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy] that I will want close at hand when I preach or teach biblical passages relating to the future. Guy Prentiss Waters, Associate Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS It seems that the Christian interest in the end times will never end. Unfortunately, much confusion reigns within the various evangelical camps regarding what the other camps believe. If you are interested in really understanding the several evangelical approaches to the end times this study is a must! Dr. Jones knows his material well and presents it clearly. I highly commend Dr. Jones for his intelligent, fair, and practical presentation of theFour Views of the End Times. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Th.D. Author, He Shall Have Dominion and Before Jerusalem Fell A Professor tells why he is choosing Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy I was sent a copy of the book Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy with the request to consider writing an endorsement for it. Quite frankly, I had no desire to do so, as I quit reading books on prophecy when I graduated from Bible College over 35 years ago. You see, while in college I backed up with Scripture, to my satisfaction, several contradictory views on how to interpret the book of Revelation. That resulted in me laying aside the whole area of end-time prophecy and saying I am going to focus instead on discipling nations, as commanded by Jesus. I figured, eschatology was obviously ambiguous, and to fight and argue over interpretations was unprofitable to the furthering of the administration of God, which is by faith (1 Tim. 1:4). However, when I first glanced at this book, I was struck by the full color charts on almost every page. I love charts, as so much information can be communicated so clearly in such a small amount of space. They captured my eyes, were easy to read and laid out multiple views of eschatology side by side, without feeling a need to judge any of them. Instead they simply showed the key unique emphases of each interpretative view along with its scriptural basis. As I began to read I really got excited. Timothy Paul Jones was not putting anyone down. He was not judging or condemning or insisting his view was right and everyone else was wrong. As a matter of fact, he was not even stating what his view was. He was simply, honestly and clearly presenting the four major views of Revelation in a clear, concise, orderly manner. So then I asked myself, but why even care about these four different ways of interpreting the book of Revelation? And as I turned to the next page (page 72), the author asked the question, "Why does it matter?" obviously fully in tune with his reading audience (which is something I absolutely love about the book). Then he gives the best answer to that question I have ever heard. It is so we know and appreciate the historical positions the church has held on the book of Revelation, so we can be informed and so we can learn to respect and honor those who hold positions different from ours. Well this is refreshing, and as God has been telling me that I need to honor all people. In my early Christian life, I was trained to judge and put down everyone who held a view different than mine, so I destroyed the unity of the body of Christ, because of my theological beliefs on things which were not essential to the message of salvation by faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This is an outstanding book, which clearly and simply lays out four differing views of end-time prophecy, providing scriptural support for each, showing the unique approaches each view takes, and encouraging you to understand and not judge those who disagree with you. Finally we can honor and love all people (1 Pet. 2:17) as we consider various views of interpreting end time prophecy. What a gift to the body of Christ. Thank you Timothy Paul Jones! Now I want to read other books Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has written, plus I want to sell your book off our website, and add it as the first and only course on eschatology our university has ever offered.

In college, Galen studied physics and mathematics, and grew indifferent and hostile toward the Christian faith. Along with the French mathematician Laplace, Galan believed God was no longer a necessary hypothesis. After additional studies, Galan began to long for deep, satisfying connections and meaning in his young life. Through the moving testimony of a friend in school, Galan began to read the Bible with renewed eyes, and eventually returned to church. As he became more involved in the ministry of his home church, Galan sensed God's calling. During his theological studies, Galan fell in love with the Old Testament and understood the Old Testament as the key for understanding the New Testament.

View: 8248

Destined to become a modern classic in the vein of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Sapiens is a lively, groundbreaking history of humankind told from a unique perspective. 100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo Sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical -- and sometimes devastating -- breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power...and our future.

A 2007 ECPA Christian Book Award Winner! Taking a narrative approach, The IVP Atlas of Bible History draws you into the rich resources available today on the Bible's history, geography and archaeology. The many maps, photographs, drawings and reconstructions on every page help you see for yourself what the people of Bible times saw and did. The Atlas presents the latest findings in history and archaeology in a readable style that will appeal to anyone wanting to know more about the history of the Bible. The world of the Bible deals with more than the modern state of Israel. Almost half of the events in the Bible are set outside this territory, and much of the Bible is addressed to people in other lands. Thus this atlas covers the world of the Bible, stretching from Spain to Iran, from Yemen to northern Greece. Trade widened these horizons even further to include India and possibly China and the east coast of Africa. The history of the Bible is played out on the stages of Egypt, Rome, Babylon and Persia. Many of the places in the ancient world are still important today, like Jerusalem, Damascus and Athens. These all play their role in the story that has shaped the imaginations and dreams of peoples and nations for centuries. All this, and more, is found in the pages of this enlightening, wonderful book.

The New Messianic Version of the Bible

The Book of GOD: Volume I

This is Volume 1 of The New Messianic Version of the Bible. It contains the Torah (The Book of Moses). Is there something missing from your Bible? Yes. The New Messianic Version of the Bible is raising eyebrows in the world of Bible translators The New Messianic Version, challenges both Jews and Christians to see that the whole Bible is Jewish. It restores the names of people and places to their "Jewish" pronunciation, translates every name of people and places so that it reads much like an "Amplified Bible." Author Tov Rose explains, "Today, Jewish people and Christians alike suffer a similar kind of blindness: They do not know their God. I know, that looks like an inflammatory statement, but please give me to the end of the book to present my case before passing judgment. There is a secret hidden in your Bible." This groundbreaking book answers the one question most Christians and Jewish people alike get wrong, "Who is the God of the Hebrew Bible?" Again, Tov, "If you said, 'God the Father' then you got it wrong, and I'm going to prove it to you." "In the New Testament book of John 6:46 Jesus says, 'No man has seen The Father...' then who have people seen?" It clearly shows you who the author really is, and it isn't God the Father. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Jews are challenged by the implication that the Tanakh is an incomplete Bible without the New Testament understanding the Yeshua (Jesus) is the God of the Hebrew Bible. Christians are challenged with the fact that they are joined to the Jewish people through faith in the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). Christianity can only be truly understood only from a Jewish perspective, hatred of Jewish people (aka: Anti-Semitism), can have no place with followers of Jesus. In short, The New Messianic Version restores the Jewish flavour and understanding of those first generation followers of Jesus.
