Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ
In Tempted and Tried, Russell D. Moore walks readers through the Devil’s ancient strategies for temptation revealed in Jesus’ wilderness testing. Moore considers how those strategies might appear in a contemporary context and points readers to a way of escape. The book will remind Christians that temptation must be understood in terms of warfare, encouraging them with the truth that victory has already been secured through the triumph of Christ.
The Kingdom of Christ: The New Evangelical Perspective
In this scholarly work, Russell D. Moore relates the history leading up to the new “Kingdom” consensus among evangelicals from the time theologian Carl F. H. Henry called for it fifty years ago. The Kingdom of Christ examines how this consensus offers a renewed theological foundation for evangelical engagement in the social and political realms.
A Guide to Adoption and Orphan Care
This book, edited by Russell D. Moore, seeks to help adoptive parents and churches better think about and practice adoption. The book is broken into three sections, the first presents biblical and theological foundations for adoption and orphan care, the second develops the implications of this foundation, and the third offers application for adoptive parents and pastors who want to cultivate an adoption culture in their churches.
Don’t Call It a Comeback
This book, edited by Kevin DeYoung, culls together essays by younger evangelicals on some of the most important doctrines and issues facing the church today. Russell D. Moore contributes an essay on the kingdom of God to the volume.
Why I Am a Baptist
In light of the current identity crisis facing Baptists today, editors Thomas J. Nettles and Russell D. Moore offer a volume of testimonies from contemporary Baptists expounding on that very question–Why I Am a Baptist. Taking a more objective approach than offered in earlier books, Why I Am a Baptist models a more doctrine-oriented approach, explaining Baptist life on the basis of historical tenets of the Christian faith worked out in practice.
A Theology for the Church
A Theology for the Church, an immense 992-page work edited by Daniel Akin, includes contributions from leading Baptist thinkers R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Paige Patterson, Timothy George, and many others. This tome seeks to address four questions in regard to eight Christian doctrines: What does the Bible say?, What has the Church believed?, How do the doctrines fit together?, and How does each doctrine impact the church today? Russell D. Moore contributed chapters on general revelation and eschatology to this important work.
Understanding Four Views on the Lord’s Supper
Understanding Four Views on the Lord’s Supper examines four different ways Christians understand the Lord’s Supper: the Baptist view (memorialism), the Reformed view (spiritual presence), the Lutheran view (consubstantiation), and the Roman Catholic view (transubstantiation). Each perspective is fairly represented and debated to provide readers with an opportunity to draw their own conclusion on this important Christian institution.
First Freedom: The Baptist Perspective on Religious Liberty
First Freedom is a gathering of important messages from a recent conference on religious liberty held at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Russell D. Moore contributes to this volume an essay entitled, “Conservative Christians in an Era of Christian Conservatives: Reclaiming the Struggle for Religious Liberty from Cultural Captivity.”
The Challenge of the Great Commission: Essays on God’s Mandate for the Local Church
With the words of the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20), Jesus gave to his disciples their marching orders. They were to take the gospel to all people groups in the world, and they were to teach them that they, too, might become devoted disciples of Christ. We, too, are expected to do the work of the Great Commission–taking the gospel to the world, baptizing believers, and teaching them to obey God. In this series of practical essays, faculty and staff members of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary challenge churches to re-focus their attention on the Great Commission.
