A House for My Name

The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. In this Canon Press bestseller, Leithart shows that the Bible is the best story.

For many Christians, sadly, the Old Testament is merely a jumble of moralistic stories and weird rituals, genealogies, and historical chronicles. What is the point of it all, and what does it have to do with Jesus?

In this short and readable book, Leithart gives a sweeping overview of the Bible, its stories, and the patterns and symbols that recur throughout it, highlighting the ways many of the little stories look forward to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Himself.

Although the book is lots of fun, the lessons it teaches are far from trivial. The Gospels say again and again Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. Christians need to learn to read the Old Testament the way Jesus and the Apostles read it, so that we can delight in the word of God and encounter Him in its stories. This book can be read easily by high school students and includes review questions for anyone who wants to use it in their curriculum. However, it will also give anyone familiar with Scripture much to think about. "And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Lk 24:27).

Also includes the Question and Answer Book

A Son to Me: An Exposition of 1&2 Samuel

The books of Samuel—familiar stories like David and Goliath, Saul and Jonathan, Absalom and Joab—look forward to Jesus, the son of David.

In this book, Peter Leithart offers a typological reading of Samuel as a unified book. By giving careful attention to the book's literary structures and patterns of types and antitypes, Leithart reveals the deeper meanings within the text. Not only does he show how the life of David not only has lessons for us in how to live our own lives, but he also shows how the books of Samuel look forward to the suffering and glorification of Jesus Himself.

 

The Modernized Geneva Bible: New Testament

The 1599 Geneva Bible is a remarkable Bible for many reasons: it was the first English Bible translated entirely from the Hebrew and the Greek, it was the first Bible with chapter and verse divisions, it was the first with a legible font, and the first with maps, notes, and chronologies and indices. Most importantly, it was intended not for displaying in churches, but for family reading.

With this in mind, the Modernized Geneva Bible (MGB) updates archaic syntax, spelling, and vocabulary of the first iconic Geneva version, allowing you to read without distraction the most important English Bible of the Reformation: The Geneva went into battle with the Puritans in the English Civil War, the Geneva made enemies of popes and kings across Europe, and the Geneva even went to America with the Pilgrims. 


But the MGB New Testament is not a facsimile edition intended for scholars of the Reformation. The thirteen thin volumes of the MGB New Testament are meant for one thing only: to be pulled off the shelf and read again and again; to be dog-eared and written in; to be consumed. We Christians learn to desire the pure milk of the Word as newborn infants (1 Pet. 2:2), for without feeding our souls we cannot grow spiritually.

Every design decision for this MGB New Testament was made to encourage daily Bible reading:

  • Readers’ format makes the Bible easy to read compared to a typical two-columned Bible with economy-size font;
  • Unlike most other readers’ editions, the MGB retains chapter and verse markings to allow you to keep track of Bible reading plans or sermon references;
  • The thirteen thin volumes are easy to finish in a sitting or two (an average reader can complete the shortest volume in 30 minutes, the longest in just over 2 hours);
  • Creamy text stock and flexible paperback bindings are easy to hold;
  • Lined note pages and reading logs for each volume allow you to make the MGB New Testament your own;
  • Beautiful, textured, and foil-stamped slipcase makes the MGB NT elegant and easy to store.

The Geneva’s original translators—Englishmen in exile from their homeland in Geneva—followed the work of William Tyndale, who famously vowed that he would help even the lowly farm boys to know more Scripture than the scholars of his time. Amen and amen!

The 27 books of the New Testament are separated into thirteen slim volumes for the MGB:

  1. Matthew (96 pgs)
  2. Mark (72 pgs)
  3. Luke (104 pgs)
  4. John (80 pgs)
  5. Acts (104 pgs)
  6. Romans (48 pgs)
  7. Corinthians (72 pgs)
  8. Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians (48 pgs)
  9. Colossians, Philemon, and Thessalonians (48 pgs)
  10. Timothy and Titus (48 pgs)
  11. Hebrews (48 pgs)
  12. James, Peter, and Jude (48 pgs)
  13. Epistles of John & Revelation (80 pgs)

 

The Victory According to Mark: An Exposition of the Second Gospel

What do the words "Gospel" and "Son of God" mean? We are so familiar with them that we fail to look at what they meant in the original context.

Mark's Gospel is sometimes assumed to be the least interesting or helpful gospel because it is the shortest and speaks in a plain and direct style. Mark Horne helps us better appreciate this gospel's goals by highlighting features not immediately apparent to the modern eye.

Horne uses its Old Testament and first-century context to point out the typological roles that Jesus, John, and the disciples fulfill as the new leaders of their nation, a period when the old Israel was both restored and redefined. He shows the gospel's intricate structures of miracle cycles and other events that bring out the major themes of calling and restoration, all playing into the kingship and triumph of Christ.

This devotional-style commentary enables the reader to see through the gospel of Mark's humble exterior into the riches that lie beneath.

Joy at the End of the Tether: The Inscrutable Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

This is a book for every fool who loves Jesus.

The book of Ecclesiastes is confusing to many believers, who see it as a debate between an untrustworthy nihilist and a genuinely wise man who trust in God instead of giving way to despair. However, Douglas Wilson takes issue with this interpretation, arguing that the author of Ecclesiastes is looking at the world with biblically informed vision. Because God is sovereign and will one day judge all men and restore the world, believers can work, rejoice, marry, eat, and worship God in hope.

Fantastic - must read

This book is three years of counseling in a very concise, clear, palatable read that brings hope into what may seem like a hopeless marriage. Even if your spouse won’t read it- this can change your marriage.

I loved this book from beginning to end!

Excellent corrective to unbalanced Christian Hedonism

Wish I'd read this years ago! Looking forward to Strangely Bright, especially as it will be easier to get others to read if it's shorter and simplified.

Loved the book. Great packaging and delivery.

A great read

A solid, holistic view of our life and responsibilities as Christians that live in a geological context in the world that God made.

I’m leading a bible study for 9-11 year old girls using this study. Thanks for a great resource I can trust!

I can't seem to hold on to this book

I read this book over a year ago and loved it so much that I gave it away within a week of finishing it. I wanted all my comrades to read it. Since then, I have given away 4 more copies and have yet to buy myself another copy.

When the Man comes around

Just finished the commentary when the Man comes around. Thoroughly enjoyed it. So much information. Planning on going through the rest of Douglas Wilson's commentary. Thanks again
