    The Shalom-making Church A Dialogue With the Three Sectors of Society Guillermo Puppo Available in March 2023 AGAPOLIS IMAGINED ​ The author radiates a passion for the church and the city. He claims that Jesus' teachings and actions enacted shalom-making principles and firmly denounced shalom-breaking systems that sustain the city's economic, social, and cultural structures of power and oppression. Dr. G. Puppo first inductively extracts insights from the Gospel of Luke and, with Social Rhetorical Analysis (SRA), highlights ten social themes. He then initiates a dialogue with the public, private and social sectors of society utilizing (CITI Certified) interviews and analyzing the data with ATLAS.ti software. The reader is guided to the critical intersection of Scripture and our situation. New possibilities ignite for a transformation of the city into a more biblically just environment—a giant leap of faith towards Agapolis (City of Love). “An excellent bridge between the church and the city . . . subsequent dialogue should emerge as a result.” - Bruce E. Winston, Ph.D. Regent University “This book is a fresh wind at a time when the world is consumed by division and controlled by fear.” - Carlo Serrano, Ph.D. Manna University “Clearly , a book that the current church needs to read, to rediscover its role in the Missio Dei and put into practice its call to be the salt of the earth.” - Silvina Kosacki, M.Div. National Hispanic District Council “Research that will become part of the framework for biblical ecclesiology in a contemporary setting . . . for years to come.” - Russell L. Huizing, Ph.D. Toccoa Falls College ​ From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Guillermo Puppo (B.B.S., M.A., Ph.D.) is Founder and Senior Pastor of Ciudad de Dios Foursquare Church in Denver, Colorado. He also serves as Senior Instructional Designer at Fuller Theological Seminary and as an Adjunct Pro-fessor of Christian Leadership at Manna University. Living in the Mile-High City, Guillermo and his wife, Vanessa, are blessed with two daughters, Ange and Julietta. ​ pp. 462 - Hard-Cover ​ Available through our global and regional distributors Button Button Button Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More

    Commentary on the Palatinate Lord's Supper Liturgy The Critical Edition B. Wielenga ​ Here Christ Gives Himself as Food and Drink ​ This first-ever critical edition commentary on the Lord's Supper is offered in order to heighten academic understanding of the liturgy and to deepen believer participation in the sacrament. ​ B. Wielenga (1873-1949) writes that, “the Lord’s Supper is where heaven and earth approach each other most nearly. The past, present and future of redemptive history meet and join hands. Christ in all his glory and complete sufficiency is brought near to the humble of heart. “While not itself the fountain, nevertheless for countless thousands the liturgy has served as a cup of the living water for the abundant refreshment of thirsty souls. The liturgy ushers the hearts, under the blessing of the Spirit, precisely into that experiential frame of mind and luminous vision of faith that is so necessary for the proper celebration of Communion. ​ "For here, Christ gives himself as food and drink by identifying himself with his people and pouring out his Mediator’s life. The service breathes the language of him whose hand reaches out especially to the weak, those whom he is eager to gather in his arms. Here the pilgrims rest awhile in the cool shade of the Palms of Elim and drink deeply of the fresh waters from the fountain of salvation. ​ This sounds like an overture that is preparing the hearts of the listeners for pure enjoyment.” The Palatinate Lord’s Supper Liturgy “Stands head and shoulders above any other liturgical documents.” Hard-Cover - 521 pp. Means of Grace Series ​ Available through our global and regional distributors Buy Now - US Buy Now - CA Buy Now - UK Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos MS Inquiries Contact More

  • Preached Word | Nsmpress LLC

    The Preached Word Heard and Seen H. David Schuringa How Shall They Hear Him? The uniqueness of the universe of images that surround us is the sheer number of them: Ministers of the Word have their hands full in an image-centered culture. Says Jacques Ellul, “this proliferation has become the spiritual question of our day.” Which begs the question: if homiletic optics are out of sync with our communications environment, do not preachers risk that too little if any of their intended message will get through? ​ The Preached Word first digs deeply into the eternal principle that faith comes by hearing—sine qua non for the pulpit. It then scopes out in theological, historical and communications fields how the use or absence of illustrations and examples, electronic media or other portrayals may enhance or diminish the hearing event. For, according to Calvin, “God does not wish to be heard but by the voice of His ministers.” ​ 400 pp. - Hard-Cover Means of Grace Series ​ Available through our global and regional distributors ​ Buy Now - US Buy Now - CA Buy Now - UK Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos Contact More

  • Wisz | Nsmpress LLC

    The Lord's Prayer and the Prayers of Believers For Thine Is the Kingdom Kingdom - Power - Glory ​ Wisz writes not as a pastor or theologian, but as an informed layman, a Christian journalist and writer. For him, the Lord’s Prayer teaches us something about the all-encompassing nature of this kingdom. ​ As believers, we learn, as we align ourselves with the prayer’s petitions, that God’s kingdom is an altogether sweeping dominion, leaving no “big idea” or the smallest nook or cranny untouched or unaffected in the world. In prayer, we bow down before Him to Whom all-of-life belongs, including every square inch of our hearts and lives. ​ Publisher's Choice Edition I have been privileged over the years to read a fair number of commentaries on the Lord’s Prayer…. But, rarely have I read anything like this that has prompted me to implore with the disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.” - Dr. George Grant Parish Presbyterian Church Take the journey with Gerry to a more complete understanding of God’s outline of special communication to enhance our communion with our Father – the King of kings and Lord of lords. - Editor John Van Dyk Christian Renewal Magazine Gerry Wisz, B.A., M.A., has spent his career not only in journalism and communications, but also public relations and marketing in the New York City area. An avid student of Scripture and a popular college professor, he has been married to his wife, Betty, for over 40 years.

  • EDV in One Volume | Nsmpress LLC

    Holy Bible English Dort Version ​ The EDV in One Volume ​ Now You Can Have It All! ​ Here presented is the first-ever publication of the historic English Dort Version of Holy Scripture, without its running commentary in one volume , fresh Bible book outlines included. And Scripture translated with the highest degree of accuracy possible by men fully qualified and uncompromisingly committed to its infallible truth, the Whole Counsel of God. Without a doubt, the the 1657 English Dort Version stands with the Genevan Bible and the King James Version on equal, perhaps greater, footing. The EDV is for the hearty student of the Bible. In other words, not for those with an appetite for drive-by translations or paraphrases of Scripture. Yes, it is in the dignified and precise Elizabethan, rather than Modern, English, as well as in original printing standards of the times. But once inside, you will get hooked on its fully reliable, accurate and literal rendering of the Word of God. While it is well-known that the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619) and the Westminster Assembly (1645), in the confessional documents each produced, are both solidly Reformed, the English Dort Bible is the only project produced in an historic partnership of both. Here discover the historical link between Presbyterian and Reformed believers. Here, Calvinists on both side of the Channel are joined at the hip in the publishing of God’s Word—all beginning in the Dutch city of Dordrecht. ​ 8x10 - Pp. 793 - Soft-Cover ​ Available through our global and regional distributors Buy Now - US Buy Now - UK Buy Now - CA Buy Now - AU Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos Contact More

    Seventy Resolutions by the Young Jonathan Edwards Explained and Applied Robert D. Norman RESOLUTE! How could a mere teenager produce such extraordinary resolutions? His story starts with a promising and intelligent college student who stands by the bed of his dying grandfather and hears the words: “I trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and I desire to do so more and more.” Robert Norman discovered these resolutions for himself, and decided to write meditations for each, that bring them into the 21st Century. ​ Edwards studied and led at Yale, served as a faithful pastor-scholar, became a catalyst for the first Great Awakening and was appointed as the Third President of Princeton University. He is widely regarded as one of America's most important and original philosophical theologians. ​ In 1722 and 1723, Edwards wrote seventy purpose statements for his life, known as his “Resolutions.” This young minister worked hard to keep these seventy vows. Here is a key to his spiritual growth, as well as yours, studying Norman’s meditations day-by-day. ​ ​ Robert D. Norman, theologically educated in the UK, is a missionary in Romania. There, he and his wife, Ema, seek to be faithful servants of Jesus Christ, resolutely sounding out the gospel trumpet for sinners to repent and to follow Jesus. ​ 6x9 - pp., 225 - Hard-Cover - Soft-Cover - E-Book ​ Available through out global and regional distributors Buy Now - UK Hardcover - UK Buy Now - US Hardcover - US Home About Us Catalog Bibles Videos Contact More
