In this volume, noted Pentecostal biblical scholar, Roger Stronstad, turns his attention to the construction of an overarching biblical theology that runs from Genesis to Revelation. Bringing his considerable narrative and theological skills to this task, Stronstad makes the bold proposal that the entire canon, from creation to the new creation, reveals a rather clear and distinctive shape and content that may be traced by a series of seven turning points in redemptive history. These turning points include five found in the Old Testament - creation, the flood, Babel, wilderness, and exile - and two found in the New Testament - the first coming of Jesus and the climax of history. In this narrative, Stronstad focuses on the key turning points in biblical and human history, the most significant biblical characters, accounts for every biblical covenant, explains the significance of the fact that there are seven turning points, as well as discovers that the agents of the new start of the last four cycles have the name Joshua (Hebrew) = Jesus (Greek), which means 'God saves', illustrating the repetitive triumph of Redemption over human cosmic and global sinfulness. This work is a welcome addition to the field of Pentecostal biblical theology.

Arranged in chronological order so that the Baptist saga can be understood as a continuous narrative, the book has the added advantage of permitting the reader to cherry-pick chapters that are of particular interest. The Baptist struggles for freedom of conscience, for a believer's church, for including both genders and all races, for fulfilling the Great Commission, and for the separation of church and state--these are only a few of the denominational-shaping turning points one discovers in this book.

In these nine sermons preachers will find brilliant use of story to illustrate the Lenten message. Beringer focuses on different journeys throughout the New Testament and examines the "turning points" recorded there. As is stated in the introduction, our Christian faith is a pilgrim faith. The author shows in modern parables how we are called by Christ to be a people on the move with him through time to eternity and the kingdom of God. He shows that we are travelers on the road of faith, never quite arriving at our destination, but always growing and being transformed by each encounter with the living God. Following each sermon is a set of discussion questions based on the preceding sermon and the scripture on which the sermon is based. These questions can be copied into the bulletin to help the congregation follow the sermon, used as small group discussion starters, distributed to worshipers as they leave church or be printed in weekly newsletters to reinforce the message given the previous Sunday. Robert Beringer, along with serving as pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Metuchen, New Jersey, is a Visiting Lecturer in Ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary. He holds degrees from Cornell and Princeton Universities. Previous books by Beringer include "The Easter People"; "Something's Coming, Something Great"; and "Batteries Not Included."

The Croatian-born Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520–1575) was a Lutheran theologian and reformer who spent most of his adult life in the German-speaking territories of the Holy Roman Empire, playing an important role within the Evangelical churches and in the confessionalization of his day. Luka Ilic establishes that Flacius’ theology became increasingly radicalized with time and examines aspects of this process through following two parallel tracks. One trajectory focuses on the development of Flacius’ theological thought, while the other one discusses the pivotal influences and major turning points in his life, such as being exiled from different cities. Although Flacius did enjoy some measure of success and even attracted a considerable number of followers for shorter periods of time, his radicalized theology ultimately led to his public downfall and marred his legacy. Flacius’ relationships with the most important Wittenberg figures, Luther and Melanchthon, are also explored, along with the vast personal and professional networks Flacius built up in imperial cities, all of which shaped his theological development. One of the dominant claims is that Flacius’ understanding of original sin and of grace were the lynchpin for much of his opus. At the same time, the findings demonstrate that Flacius was a multifaceted individual with interest and competences in a number of different academic fields.
