I was at Canaanland yesterday for their 5pm to midnight member sales and grabbed several good books.
The Concise Exegetical Grammar of New Testament Greek by J. Harold Greenlee
I think I picked up the right book - I really need to revise my elementary Greek and seriously don't know where to start. Well, this book may or may not help - it really takes discipline.
Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words by William D Mounce
I need this for my 3 Biblical Interpretation assignments and I really, really, really need to get on it already.
Nelson’s New Illustrated Bible Manners and Customs by Howard F.Vos
Also needed for my Biblical Interpretation assignment and there are a lot of information in there which I believe will give me a good and general understanding on biblical background.
A Model of Christian Maturity by DA Carson
I have not seen this book by Carson before, and it is not a new one.
City of God by St. Augustine
This is a good find. I had seen this Penguin paperback in MPH but selling at over RM100, which I think is too over-priced. I got this one at less than half the price.
Contagious Holiness, Jesus Meals with Sinners by Craig L. Blomberg
I would like to collect the NSBT series and here I picked up 3. Wish I could pick them all but I have to do it slowly. My resources are limited! This one attracted me because I would like to learn more about Jesus's ministry among those who are rejected and considered evil, e.g. tax collectors like Matthew and Zacchaeus.
Five Festal Garments, Christian Reflections on The Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and Esther by Barry G. Webb
These are among my favourite books of the Old Testament and this is a delightful book. I have started reading it and I finished Song of Songs and Ruth in just one sitting.
Hearing God's Words, Exploring Biblical Spirituality by Peter Adam
I was drawn to this book because in my efforts to be more equipped in the knowledge of God and his word, I need to keep in check my application of the word as well. "Exploring biblical spirituality" is such an apt title.
