The Second Testament: A New Translation

Scot McKnight

(IVP Academic)

Experience the New Testament afresh in Scot McKnight’s bold translation. Typical translations of the New Testament make the biblical text as accessible as possible by using the language of our own day. At times this masks the distance between the New Testament text and modern readers. Scripture continues to speak to us but it speaks as an ancient text to the modern world.

New Testament scholar Scot McKnight offers a translation of the New Testament with a daring approach to the ancient text. Clever in its expression and at times stunning in its boldness, The Second Testament will challenge readers to experience God’s Word anew.

God blesses the beggars in spirit because theirs is Heavens’ Empire.

God blesses the grievers because they will be consoled.

God blesses the meek because they will inherit the land.

God blesses the ones hungering and thirsting for the rightness because they will be satisfied. (Matthew 5:3-6)

Features include:

  • Complete text of the New Testament
  • Brief introductions to each book
  • Maps of key locations and events
  • Glossary of key terms in the translation
  • Full-cloth hardcover with foil stamping

Being God’s Image: Why Creation Still Matters

Carmen Joy Imes

( IVP Academic )

What does it mean to be human? This timeless question proves critical as we seek to understand our purpose, identity, and significance. Amidst the many voices clamoring to shape our understanding of humanity, the Bible reveals important truths related to our human identity and vocation that are critical to the flourishing of all of creation.

Carmen Joy Imes seeks to recover the theologically rich message of the creation narratives starting in the book of Genesis as they illuminate what it means to be human. Every human being is created as God’s image. Imago Dei is our human identity, and God appointed humans to rule on God’s behalf. Being God’s Image explores the implications of this kinship relationship with God and considers what it means for our work, our gender relations, our care for creation, and our eternal destiny. The Bible invites us into a dramatically different quality of life: a beloved community in which we can know God and one another as we are truly known.

Includes a discussion guide for personal reflection or group study, as well as links to related video material through the BibleProject.
