The Olivet Discourse: A Reconstruction of the Text from Matthew, Mark, and Luke, with Commentary

A commentary on the Olivet Discourse based on a reconstruction of the text from all three synoptic gospels (from the Greek). Also included are thorough discussions of prior interpretations, hermeneutics, structure, and theology—all from a premillennial, dispensational perspective. Understanding the Olivet Discourse is crucial to understanding subsequent New Testament teaching on such topics as: the tribulation, the second coming, and events preparatory to Christ’s coming earthly rule. Contrary to popular amillennial, postmillennial, and premillennial interpretations, the author makes the case that Christ’s last discourse has much to say about the Church at the end of the present age, and its imminent rapture—a truth long obscured, even by many premillennialists. The abridged PDF edition is 209 pages, the full print edition is 268 pages.  Click or tap here for print edition.

cover_tbd_salvation

The Biblical Doctrine of Salvation

A discussion of man’s most basic problem of sin and separation from God, and what God has determined to do about it. How did we get into this predicament to start with? Why would a just God hold us responsible for what our first parents did? Did God put a stumbling block in man’s way in the Garden? Why do men have a universal tendency to sin? What does it mean to be “saved”? What about those who renounce their faith? If God really wanted to save men by grace, why did he give the Law? Is it possible for a saved person to become lost again? These are just a few of the powerful questions addressed in this book. 140 pages. Click or tap here for print edition.

Who Wrote “the Psalms of David”?  Kindle edition only

Seventy-three of the Old Testament psalms bearing the title “of David” have been traditionally understood to be of Davidic authorship. However, critical scholarship has challenged that assumption. Are those challenges valid? What do the titles mean, and is there evidence that King David actually wrote these psalms? The author summarizes the scholarly opinion, then gives evidence of why these titles are best understood as claims of Davidic authorship. Included is a brief selection of annotated Davidic psalms. This is a condensed presentation of the topic for the reader who wants to know more about the Davidic psalms and their origin, without having to spend untold hours sifting through the scattered literature.
