Theology For Life


In today’s episode Shaun Tabatt speaks with Tim Chaffey about his book ‘In Defense of Easter: Answering Critical Challenges to the Resurrection of Jesus’ (Midwest Apologetics, 2014).

About the Book:
Without the Resurrection, there is no hope.

We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own Resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world.

Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ’s conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss this vital doctrine at Easter time—and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers.

In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers:

- How history and archaeology support the Resurrection
- Why skeptical explanations come up short
- How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort
- Whether Easter is a pagan holiday

Equip yourself to answer today’s skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In today’s episode Shaun Tabatt speaks with Matt Roper and Vicki Tiede about Matt’s new book ‘Highway To Hell: The Road Where Childhoods Are Stolen’ (Kregel/Monarch Books, 2013).

About the Book:
A child is sold for sex every ten miles on Brazil’s BR-116 motorway. This 2,700-mile road is “The Highway to Hell” for the thousands of children, some as young as nine, who are trapped in sophisticated child prostitution rackets organized by businessmen and politicians.

An experienced journalist, Matt Roper has witnessed the extent of the trafficking firsthand. Highway to Hell documents his journey on this road. He meets the girls and hears their stories; he interviews truck drivers, pimps, brothel owners, and traffickers; and talks to the brave souls who are trying to make a difference.

Part documentary, part personal memoir, Matt honestly shares his struggles to understand what his Christian faith has to say about the things he encounters and how God wants him to respond.

About the Author:
Matt Roper is the author of ‘Street Girls’ and ‘Remember Me, Rescue Me.’ He spent eight years with the Daily Mirror as a journalist. He and his Brazilian wife now live and work in Brazil. Matt speaks fluent Portuguese.

Theology for Life3 300x3001 150x1501111111 #114: Bryan Chapell – ESV Gospel Transformation Bible[Podcast]In this episode Shaun Tabatt speaks with Bryan Chapell about the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible (Crossway, 2013).

About the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible:
The apostle Paul summed up his whole ministry as existing “to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24). That single-minded goal is the heartbeat of thfe ESV Gospel Transformation Bible. Produced out of the conviction that the Bible is a unified message of God’s grace culminating in Jesus, it is a significant new tool to help readers see Christ in all the Bible, and grace for all of life.

The Gospel Transformation Bible features all-new book introductions and gospel-illuminating notes written by a team of over 50 outstanding pastors and scholars. This specially prepared material outlines passage-by-passage God’s redemptive purposes of grace that echo all through Scripture and culminate in Christ. The notes not only explain but also apply the text in a grace-centered way. Focusing on heart transformation rather than mere behavior modification, their points of application emphasize the Hows and Whys of practical application to daily living—in short, how the gospel transforms us from the inside out.

The Gospel Transformation Bible is available in a wide variety of print and digital formats. Moreover, every print edition comes with free access to the Online Gospel Transformation Bible, hosted at ESVBible.org.

The Gospel Transformation Bible will equip both new and seasoned believers with a gospel-centered reading of Scripture, enabling God’s people to see that the message of the Bible is a unified one—“to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
