Was Jesus Really Born of a Virgin?

“This booklet makes a valuable contribution to this series. It is difficult to imagine a similarly brief treatment of this topic that would be more helpful.”
- Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

Morality of God in the Old Testament

“Effectively treats this difficult and, for many, troublesome topic. The way Beale addresses the issues raised in therms of the unfolding of the history of salvation is particularly helpful and instructive.”
- Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

Christianity and the Role of Philosophy

“Oliphint’s main illustration is very illuminating: when you’re trying to find your way in a strange place, it is better to have a GPS than a mere road map. So philosophy (which, unlike other sciences, never seems to make real progress) needs a view from above; it needs to accept guidance from the revelation of God. Oliphint gives us some examples of how God’s word provides clarity and cogency to the philosopher’s task.”
- John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

Christian Interpretations of Genesis 1

“Though brief, this booklet is informed, irenic, and instructive. It covers all the bases in an extremely readable style, and all sides to this dialog should find it helpful. I highly recommend it.”
- J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University; author, Love Your God with All Your Mind

Creation, Evolution, and Intelligent Design

“There is often more heat than light in the controversies over creation, evolution, and intelligent design, and much of the heat arises from widespread and sometime deliberate confusion over the various meanings of these terms. Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards do an excellent job of shining light on those meanings and explaining the major issues at stake in the debates. This book is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to understand what’s really going on, especially Christians who are told that ‘science’ conflicts with their faith.”
- Jonathan Wells, Senior Fellow, Center for Science and Culture, Seattle

“A useful survey of the various terms and concepts invoked in this very controversial topic. Those who are just starting to look into these issues would do well to read this essay at the outset.”
- David Snokes, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, University of Pittsburgh

Should You Believe in God?

“When I first read Van Til’s pamphlet Why I Believe in God as a college student, it turned my world upside down. It was unlike any philosophical discussion of God that I had ever seen. Scott Oliphint’s Should You Believe in God? is a kind of updated version of Van Til's pamphlet. Oliphint refers to more recent writers and philosophical controversies. But like Van Til’s work, it proposes answers to those issues that move far beyond the answers that are usually considered respectable.”
- John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

Should You Believe in God? by Scott Oliphint is a very capable and winsome statement of Christian theism. I commend it to you.”
- Douglas Wilson, Senior Minister, Christ Church, Moscow, ID

Was Jesus Really Born of a Virgin?

“Here is an excellent exposition of Jesus’ miraculous conception, what is commonly called the virgin birth. Brandon Crowe explains the New Testament teaching, patiently deals with modern objections, and shows why the faith in the virgin birth not only remains tenable but is vital for Christians today. Readers will find his treatment both illuminating and edifying.”
- Charles E. Hill, Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

Morality of God in the Old Testament

"Navigating questions about morality, especially the morality of God in the Old Testament, requires special care and thoughtful, biblical consideration. In this little booklet, Beale provides readers with just that."
– Miles V. Van Pelt, Alan Belcher Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages, Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson
