What we believe about the Bible is foundational to every part of life. Scripture is the very Word of God, the final authority for all of theology, the governing source of all other doctrines. In the latest volume of the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series, theology professor John S. Feinberg has written a landmark work on the doctrine of Scripture, offering a robust, serious treatment of topics such as revelation, the canon, inerrancy, infallibility, sufficiency, preservation, and more—all with the goal of helping readers cherish, obey, and be transformed by what God has spoken in his Word.

I want the world to see my insides like a badge, like a statement saying -- this is how bad it really is. Are you a Christian who battles depression? Have you wondered why your faith isn't meeting your needs? D.M. Harrington understands the crushing weight of depression. When reality didn't align with the deep-rooted beliefs she held since childhood, D.M. began asking tough questions of her faith. By confronting spiritual questions that didn't have easy answers, God revealed the shackles that bound her to the dark. Light in a Dark Place breaks down our own desperate questions of faith into digestible nuggets, which show how to make a faith walk practical. Much of our pain is our shredded hands refusing to let go in an invisible tug-of-war with God. But we must let go--of our illusions about life, our irrational expectations, and our preconceptions about God. It is the only route to relief. Light in a Dark Place explores questions that plague many, including: Why am I unable to help myself? Why won't God fix me? How can a good God allow bad things to happen? Could I be the problem? and more With a compassionate voice, D.M. Harrington relies on Scripture and the One who gave her answers as she crawled after the light. You are not alone in your depression. No matter how many years you have fought or how many wounds you have accumulated or how exhausted you are--there is light. You can thrive emotionally, mentally, and relationally in spite of depression. D.M. Harrington has a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill but currently works as a Certified Public Accountant. As a member of American MENSA, she uses her capacity for complex thought to search the mysteries of God for help in managing major recurrent depression disorder. D.M. lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her rescued Boston terrier, Pearl, and her three-legged Jack Russell mix, Frankie. Join the conversation at: www.lightinadarkplace.com

Sharing biblical principles to reconcile others to the Lord Jesus, and to free my Grandfather and family from any taint of “outlaws” and “gangsters,” is the prime joy of my latter existence on this earth. Then, to top it all, anticipating the amazing wonders of the song “Just think of stepping on shore, and finding it heaven; touching a hand, and finding it God,” my own personal Savior. He paid for everyone’s penalty for sin, but what thrills my soul, He forgave my sin. Unbeatable! Please join us. Remember, dear reader, “Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Today hear His voice (Rom. 14:11; Heb. 3:7).
