Biscuits & Books is a Bible study time for men to get together, fellowship and discuss books regarding the church and biblical Christianity. The study will be on Monday mornings at 6:30 a.m. in the fellowship hall. The church provides biscuits and coffee for your breakfast meal.
The first book that will be read and discussed is "Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church" by Michael Lawrence, who contributes to the IXMarks series as he centers on the practical importance of biblical theology to ministry.
Do you want to understand how each part of the Bible fits together to form one, unified, unfolding message?
Michael Lawrence helps you to do just that. This essential volume presents the substance and practical importance of biblical theology for ministry. He begins with an examination of a pastor’s tools of the trade—exegetical, biblical, and systematic theology—and commends biblical theology as the tool that should never be on the shelf. Lawrence helpfully distinguishes between biblical and systematic theology, but also emphasizes the importance of their collaboration in ministry.
Having laid the foundation for pastoral ministry, Lawrence uses the three tools to build a biblical theology, telling the entire story of the Bible from five different angles. He puts biblical theology to work in four areas: counseling, missions, caring for the poor, and church/state relations. Rich in application and practical insight, this book will equip pastors and church leaders to think, preach, and do ministry through the framework of biblical theology.
Michael Lawrence serves as the lead pastor of Hinson Baptist Church in Portland, Oregon. He earned a PhD in church history from Cambridge University and an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
