One Lord One Faith

Matthew R. Akers

In One Lord, One Faith: Lessons on Racial Reconciliation from the New Testament Church, Matthew Akers explores the deep racial divides that threatened the early church. Believers, who learned how to celebrate their unity by applying Christ’s teachings to their lives, ultimately tore down the ethnocultural barriers that separated them. Their oneness astounded a world that had never seen this level of reconciliation. As a result of their commitment to love God and to love others, the Holy Spirit blessed their faithfulness, which convinced many that Jesus is Lord. The purpose of this book is to help twenty-first century American churches implement in their congregations the first century church’s approach to racial reconciliation.

Selah, an obscure term in the Psalter and Habakkuk, has commonly been the subject of discussion regarding its meaning and use. Many 19th century scholars have spent countless hours, and devoted many pages, to remove Selah from obscurity. Only now have we revealed a previously undiscovered clue in Selah’s use during the Second Temple period due to 20th century archaeological finds. In Reassessing Selah, Ashley E. Lyon approaches each text with a “whole picture” perspective to examine each psalm and Selah occurrence in its immediate context. Many scholars believed that Selah was simply an instruction for the musical director, but new evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls suggests that it was a live term in the Second Temple period.

Upcoming Titles


Theology

The following titles in systematic, historical, or practical theology are forthcoming:

 One Lord, One Faith by Matt Akers.

Jesus told his closest followers that people would know they were his disciples by their love for one another (John 13:35). Fellowship is among the many fruits that sprout from the sincere affection our Lord emphasized. Sadly, however, fellowship fails to reach its highest potential in some Christian circles. One such challenge that exists in the United States is the relative lack of unity between believers from different ethnocultural backgrounds. The book of Acts contains numerous accounts of Jewish, Samaritan, and Gentile Christians who learned to weave their lives together for the glory of Christ and for their mutual benefit, and we can learn much from these efforts. In One Lord, One Faith, Dr. Matt Akers will examine these vibrant narratives and will apply the lessons therein to twenty-first century Christians.

The Table that Unites by J. Rudder Jenkins.

In The Table that Unites: Combating a Divisive Culture, Dr. Rudder Rudder examines our increasingly polarized society as people entrench in divisive attitudes over religious, political, and social issues. Rudder reflects on a decade of conversations and relationships that have been impacted by the Gospel through one simple spiritual gift: hospitality. Sharing meals with people who differ from us builds connections that allow us to care about what they care about and for others to care about what we care about. Hosting people in your home allows for guards to be lowered, stories to be shared, laughter to unite, and entries to be passed. Join Rudder as he explores the possibility of overcoming the vitriolic tones of social media and click-bait news articles with shared meals and real human interaction. 

Forthcoming.

Spiritual Cartography by Timothy Mathis.

In Spiritual Cartography, Dr. Timothy Mathis explores how you can develop a plan to grow in your relationship with Jesus and teach you how to help others grow in their relationship with Jesus. These plans, or maps, identify where you are right now spiritually and help you chart simple, attainable steps to grow spiritually. 

People interested in personal discipleship plans or leading a group in spiritual formation would benefit from Mathis’s Spiritual Cartography.

Coming 2021.

Reassessing Selah by Ashley E. Lyon.

Dr. Ashley Lyon’s new title offers an expanded examination of the term Selah.

Selah, an obscure term in the Psalter and Habakkuk, has commonly been the subject of discussion regarding its meaning and use. Many 19th century scholars have spent countless hours, and devoted many pages, to remove Selah from obscurity. Only now have we revealed a previously undiscovered clue in Selah’s use during the Second Temple period due to 20th century archaeological finds. The present work approaches each text with a “whole picture” perspective to examine each psalm and Selah occurrence in its immediate context. Many scholars believed that Selah was simply an instruction for the musical director, but new evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls suggests that it was a live term in the Second Temple period. 

If you are interested in studies in the Psalm and Minor Prophets, theology and practice of worship, and studies in Hebrew you won’t want to miss Ashley’s new title.
