In the 21st Century, people are interested in self-help and self-development. With more than seven billion people occupying space in the world, it is safe to say everyone is in need of guidance. It is not a far reach to assert that many people already know what a mentoring relationship is. They have a good idea of what it entails and why it is important. The mentoring relationship is a dynamic one that involves a delicate balance of nurturing and support on the one hand with stretch and challenge on the other. Christians, who engage in mentoring relationships, whether formal or informal, must approach those relationships from a Biblical perspective. Scripture provides clear instructions regarding mentoring. The recording of certain Scriptures and notable mentoring relationships in the Bible reveals the importance of relationship and instruction. PILLARS for Christian Mentoring provides practical application of Biblical principles governing mentoring relationships; clarity about the tenure of the mentoring relationship; and identifies the stages of the mentoring relationship.

This two-volume set is part of a growing body of literature concerned with the history of biblical interpretation. The ample introduction first situates key players in the story of the development of the major strands of biblical interpretation since the Enlightenment, identifying how different theoretical and methodological approaches are related to each other and describing the academic environment in which they emerged and developed. Volume 1 contains fourteen essays on twenty-two interpreters who were principally active before 1980, and volume 2 has nineteen essays on twenty-seven of those who were active primarily after this date. Each chapter provides a brief biography of one or more scholars, as well as a detailed description of their major contributions to the field. This is followed by an (often new) application of the scholar's theory. By focusing on the individual scholars and their work, the book recognizes that interpretive approaches arise out of certain circumstances, and that scholars are influenced by, and have influences upon, both other interpreters and the times in which they live. This set is ideal for any class on the history of biblical interpretation and for those who want a greater understanding of how the current field of biblical studies developed.

PILLARS for Public Servants

There are so many things happening in the world of public service. It is sometimes difficult to pinpoint just one thing. With technology and the Internet, the world seems smaller. Yet, it is still vast. In all of it, there are troubles - political uprisings to be more precise. With so much happening in the realm of public service, there is a need (dare I say a call) for better leadership. People in public service are human and subject to flaws like everyone else. PILLARS for Public Servants is a mentoring guide for those in public service - to include their teams and family members - to help them in the areas of character, prudence and savoir faire.

This third volume, like its predecessors, adds to the growing body of literature concerned with the history of biblical interpretation. With eighteen essays on nineteen biblical interpreters, volume 3 expands the scope of scholars, both traditional and modern, covered in this now multivolume series. Each chapter provides a biographical sketch of its respective scholar(s), an overview of their major contributions to the field, explanations of their theoretical and methodological approaches to interpretation, and evaluations and applications of their methods. By focusing on the contexts in which these scholars lived and worked, these essays show what defining features qualify these scholars as "pillars" in the history of biblical interpretation. While identifying a scholar as a "pillar" is somewhat subjective, this volume defines a pillar as one who has made a distinctive contribution by using and exemplifying a clear method that has pushed the discipline forward, at least within a given context and time period. This volume is ideal for any class on the history of biblical interpretation and for those who want a greater understanding of how the field of biblical studies has developed and how certain interpreters have played a formative role in that development.

Dr. Nxumalo has since operationalized her passion by penning a how-to-do manual: “Pillars of Joy in Marriage” to revitalize marital relationships in the physical, emotional and spiritual domains. Her book contributes to an army of authors who endeavor to win the silent “battle of the mind” against the marriage institution by: Sharing her story how God’s GPS has guided her own marriage journey through the years. Dispelling the illusion of euphoric happiness in marriage. Assuring readers of an attainable joy in marriage despite turbulences the enemy throws at us. Urging couples to look forward to the coming of the “Bride-groom”- Jesus Christ, the true Prince Charming, who will take His Bride - the Church, to the never-ending honeymoon in a death-free world made new and where pre-sin condition is restored. There is a lot to like in Dr. Nxumalo’s manuscript. There are 1) her wholesome and practical approach to marital success 2) her very incisive overview of the significant differences between happiness and joy 3) her insistence on the reader’s attention to the “how-tos” of success 4) her use of both Scriptural and personal illustrations 5) language richly flavored with the royalty elements of her native South Africa and 6) a writing style that reflects her cheerful and progressive personality. It’s a good read impressively done! —Calvin B. Rock, Ph.D. Dr. Nxumalo writes about marriage as ministry, drawing from a wellspring of poignant, riveting, but everyday examples cumulating a 50-year marriage. The book’s voice, humorous and humbling, is that of a girlfriend, a mature Christian, a cosmopolitan world citizen well-schooled in the vicissitudes of this life but with a focus on life eternal. Dr. Nxumalo gives advice that is memorable and assessments that are measurable--a must read for marital success. —Attorney James C. & Dr. Valerie B. Lee I have been in ministry for over 30 years and read a lot of material on marital relationships, but Dr. Nxumalo’s approach really held my interest and came from a totally new perspective of investing in your marriage capital was new and refreshing. Well done! —Pastor Sam & Rowena Davis Thank you for the opportunity to edit Pillars of Joy in Marriage, a guide that promises to help readers examine themselves and their marriages to determine what behavioral and spiritual adjustments to make to create a fulfilling, God-centered relationship. With a great deal of advice, numerous personal testimonies, and plentiful relevant Bible verses, your how-to instruction is grounded in spiritual principles and has authority. —Editor for WestBow Press

What is evangelism? Have you ever asked that question? For most people the word conjures up a great deal of pictures or thoughts that run the ambit of fanatics running the streets with tracts in their hands to the nice little Christian who models their faith through a quiet lifestyle.

The Twelve Pillars of Manhood: A Vision that Honors God is the result of the author's life journey viewing community and family through the lens of the Word of God applied to real world situations. It argues that what ails our country and communities is the need for stronger families led by stronger men. But the book also provides guidance for women raising boys to manhood, drawing on the author's own experiences of being raised in large part by a single mother. The Twelve Pillars begin with the premise of honoring God. The remainder of the book's principles follow and develop this premise in its various contexts, worship and prayer, discipleship, stewardship, leadership, and resisting temptation. The book chronicles the author's journey into Christian manhood. This journey takes the author through a world in desperate need of the very Christian principles it fights against. The Twelve Pillars is a celebration of who God has called each of us to be. More importantly, the Twelve Pillars is a battle plan of how to challenge our boys and men to a higher level of maturity, to lead more effectively, and to love more fully, living out God's purpose for their lives.

At the birth of the United States, African Americans were excluded from the newly-formed Republic and its churches, which saw them as savage rather than citizen and as heathen rather than Christian. Denied civil access to the basic rights granted to others, African Americans have developed their own sacred traditions and their own civil discourses. As part of this effort, African American intellectuals offered interpretations of the Bible which were radically different and often fundamentally oppositional to those of many of their white counterparts. By imagining a freedom unconstrained, their work charted a broader and, perhaps, a more genuinely American identity. In Pillars of Cloud and Fire, Herbert Robinson Marbury offers a comprehensive survey of African American biblical interpretation. Each chapter in this compelling volume moves chronologically, from the antebellum period and the Civil War through to the Harlem Renaissance, the civil rights movement, the black power movement, and the Obama era, to offer a historical context for the interpretative activity of that time and to analyze its effect in transforming black social reality. For African American thinkers such as Absalom Jones, David Walker, Zora Neale Hurston, Frances E. W. Harper, Adam Clayton Powell, and Martin Luther King, Jr., the exodus story became the language-world through which freedom both in its sacred resonance and its civil formation found expression. This tradition, Marbury argues, has much to teach us in a world where fundamentalisms have become synonymous with “authentic” religious expression and American identity. For African American biblical interpreters, to be American and to be Christian was always to be open and oriented toward freedom.

The Stob Lectures, sponsored annually by Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, have drawn some of today's most celebrated Christian thinkers in the fields of ethics, apologetics, and philosophical theology. This volume collects under one cover each of the Stob Lectures delivered from 1986 to 1998. Comprised of thirteen learned, relevant, and well-crafted addresses, Seeking Understanding presents a diverse range of significant topics, illumined in engaging ways by the scholars who know them best. Lewis B. Smedes's inaugural lecture examines the subject of commitment. James M. Gustafson follows with a look at moral discourse,while Peter Kreeft speaks on immortality. Alvin Plantinga explores the nature of Christian scholarship, and Marty E. Marty surveys the denominational landscape. Allen D. Verhey probes key issues in medical ethics, while Nicholas P. Wolterstorff compares neo-Calvinism and "Yale theology." Other lectures feature Dewey J. Hoitenga Jr. on happiness, John Feikens on conflict, George I. Mavrodes on philosophy, Arthur F. Holmes on Christian education, and J. Harold Ellens on dysfunction. Eleanore Stump rounds out the volume with an insightful discussion of the problem of evil. Illustrative of the same depth of thinking, scholarly passion, and clarity of expression that characterized the work of the man whom these lectures honor, Henry J. Stob, Seeking Understanding is both a valuable omnibus and a superb introduction to a rich and influential tradition of Christian scholarship.

There is nothing more fundamental to the Christian faith and to building godly men than discipleship. In today’s vernacular, discipleship would best be described as “Spiritual Mentoring.” Why are discipleship and mentoring so important? How does discipleship connect to men and the struggles they face today? Authentic discipleship is about developing a caring concern and a genuine love for others through modeling Christ-like attitudes and behavior in the context of relational environments. A fresh approach is needed to define, implement, and equip men with a passion to make disciples. It starts with relationship. Men are desperate for meaningful relationships both with God and other men. Building a Ministry of Spiritual Mentoring will help churches and ministry leaders create dynamic environments for men to experience real transformation and develop authentic Christian relationships. This proven method will assist your church or group in effectively developing and deploying a ministry of spiritual mentoring. Features include: Metaphors, anecdotes, and practical applications Proven tools for developing a ministry around spiritual mentoring Discussion questions
