The first section discusses the spiritual meanings of the nine major covenants of the Bible: Edenic, Adamic, Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Palestinian, Levitical, Davidic and finally the New Covenant. It especially focuses on five facets of each covenant: Promises, Responsibilities, Separation, Transition and Fulfillment. In each area, each of the nine covenants powerfully foreshadows our amazing New Covenant in Jesus' blood.
The second section shows the deep differences between the "Old Covenant" of Moses, and the "New Covenant" of Jesus. This includes important truths that many in the Christian world are in need of.

This book focuses on the Feasts of Israel under the Law of Moses,including the two great deliverance feasts (Purim and Hanukah), and concludes with the Lord's Supper and the Marriage Supper (of the Lamb).
It is little known within the Christian world, but widely known in Judaism, that all of the Feasts of Israel are related to the concept of a wedding feast -especially the Feast of Tabernacles. This book is all about the profound symbolism of each of these feasts, and how they closely intertwine with each other.
The culmination is a study of the progression from the Lord's Supper (Last Supper) and the Marriage Feast of the Lamb in Revelation. It includes some astounding truths about our relationship with the Lord, and tackles the question: are we married to the Lord, or only betrothed? There are seemingly contradictory passages in the epistles concerning this, but the puzzle is pieced together in a way that will prod the reader to find a closer relationship to the Lord.
Even the prophesied supernatural "hiding" of the saints in the dark times to come are discussed Koinonia is also shown to be the great key to understanding all of these subjects, and the meaning of this word is explored in all its magnificence.
This book will help the reader understand the temples and tabernacles as seen in the Old Testament. It also includes a description of the tabernacle/temple objects. Each of these is described in terms of how they relate to New Covenant truths - including the awesome plan for the Body of Christ - and compares them to the great temple seen in heaven in the book of Revelation.
The subject matter includes the betrothal and wedding events found in Hebrew culture, and the many prophetic pictures of Christ and his Bride found from Genesis to Song of Songs to Revelation. It covers the symbolic truths behind the birth of a child in the Bible, and the seven women who were able to conceive through a miracle, and the great sons they gave birth to. It also discusses the mysterious "male child" of Revelation chapter 12.
This book is about all of the gardens (and also the vineyards and fields) seen in the Bible, from Genesis, through Song of Songs, all the way into Revelation.
It is not by coincidence that humanity began in a garden, Jesus was crucified between two gardens, and we see a garden in heaven. These are symbols of spiritual realities, and also as prophetic signs of events yet to come.
By cross-referencing the scriptures and delving into ancient Middle Eastern culture, this book reveals many layers of prophetic and symbolic truths, even inherent in the names. This goes into depth concerning the symbolism from the Tower of Babel, to Babylon, to the end-time prophecies of the global "city" known as Babylon the Great.
It includes a chart which helps sort out the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation, and a fascinating look at the hidden meanings of the hills and gates of Jerusalem. it also discusses the spiritual principalities behind earthly kings in the Bible, and reveals many prophetic passages which used those same kings to foreshadow the coming global ruler.

We cannot fully understand the beauty and awesome scope of the New Covenant without being able to compare it to the Old, and to understand God's intentions with the sacrifices and other aspects of the Mosaic Covenant.
This book simplifies a very difficult subject. The Sacrifices and Offerings of Israel were symbolic of deep spiritual truths, including Christ's sacrifice for us, and the spiritual sacrifices that all believers in Jesus are asked to make. We are shown the principles of how these sacrifices were carried out, and how they relate to us today under the New Covenant.

By Glen Carpenter
This book lists many important Old and New Testament saints (believers) and their adversaries, whose names and life events are significant in terms of their exploits, or their character. These symbolized and foreshadowed Christ, or of Satan or Antichrist. The names and events are much more revealing as we explore the hidden meanings from the Hebrew and Greek, and from Middle Eastern culture.
The aim of this book is to give the reader a solid overview and foundation for future research. It should be of great help in learning how to discover for yourself the prophetic and symbolic nature of these amazing people.

Women everywhere marvel at those “good girls” in Scripture–Sarah, Mary, Esther–but on most days, that’s not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they’re honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel’s take-charge pride or Eve’s disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today’s modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.
So what’s a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved Bible study teacher and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs, and choose a better path. Whether they were “Bad to the Bone,” “Bad for a Season, but Not Forever” or only “Bad for a Moment,” these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life.
With her trademark humor and encouragement, Higgs combines a contemporary retelling of the stories of these “other women” in Scripture with a solid, verse-by-verse study to teach us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!

In her best-selling book Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz Curtis Higgs breathed new life into ancient stories depicting eight of the most infamous women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Delilah. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, Bad Girls already has helped thousands of women experience God's grace anew by learning more about our nefarious sisters.
And there are more where they came from! With Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz reveals the power of God's sovereignty in the lives of other shady ladies we know by reputation but have rarely studied in depth: Bathsheba, the bathing beauty. Jael, the tent-peg-toting warrior princess. Herodias, the horrible beheader. Tamar, the widow and not-so-timid temptress. Athaliah, the deadly daughter of Jezebel. And three ancient women whose names we do not know but who have much to teach us: the ashamed Adulteress, the bewitching Medium of En Dor, and the desperate Bleeding Woman.
The eye-opening stories of these eight "Really Bad" women demonstrate one really life-changing concept: the sovereign power of God to rule our hearts and our lives with grace, compassion, and hope.

Can the Bible really be understood?
Are Old Testament prophecies relevant for today?
How can I understand the symbolism of the Book of Revelation?
What is the relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament?
Why study Bible interpretation? Dr. Roy Zuck points out that it is essential for understanding and teaching the Bible properly, essential as a step beyond observation, and essential for applying the Bible correctly.
He discusses the challenges of Bible interpretation, considers the problems of Bible interpretation, explores the history of Bible interpretation, and defines key terms--all in a practical, down-to-earth way.
Though Dr. Zuck's many years of teaching and scholarship are evident in this book, he has written in language understandable to all who are serious about bible study and who want to know better what Scripture means.
Basic Bible Interpretation lives up to its title. It deals with the basics and doesn't confuse the reader with extraneous material. It focuses on the bible as the Word of God and handles that Word with "reverence and godly fear." It tells us how to interpret this marvelous Book, and even gives the reader opportunity to put the principles into practice. In every way, this book is a practical tool for the serious student who wants to study the Bible and apply its truths.
Warren W. Wiersbe
Author, Conference Speaker
Having taught and written in the area of hermeneutics for almost thirty years, I am convinced that there is no more important course in the seminary curriculum for training in the scriptures. As Roy Zuck has so ably demonstrated, we cannot know the message of the bible for today until we know its meaning.
Dr. Zuck's work is intensely biblical and comprehensive but at the same time it is simple and uncomplicated. This is a book we have needed for many years and I praise the Lord that it is now available.
Earl D. Radmacher
Chancellor, Professor of Systematic Theology
At last! A book on hermeneutics you can understand. Dr. Zuck has drawn heavily on his many years of teaching in the seminary classroom to present an excellent treatise on biblical interpretation. While this book will be well received in the classroom, it is one that I will be wholeheartedly recommending to my congregation. While the scholarship is clearly present, it is nevertheless most readable and understandable by the average layperson. This book will make a valuable contribution to your ability to comprehend the Scriptures.

These handpicked verses provide a foundation of wisdom and hope to show readers who God is and what He has done for them, as well as who they are and how they can successfully live the Christian life.
Yet they are very near to us in every way. In this lively book, Scott Hahn dispels the false notions and urban legends people use to keep the saints at a safe distance. The truth is that Jesus Christ has united heaven and earth in a close communion. Drawing deeply from Scripture, Dr. Hahn shows that the hosts of heaven surround the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." The martyrs cry out from heaven’s altar begging for justice on the earth. The prayers of the saints and angels rise to God, in the Book of Revelation, like the sweet aroma of incense.
Dr. Hahn tells the stories of several saints (and several angels too) in a way that’s fresh and new. The saints are spiritual giants but with flesh-and-blood reality. They have strong, holy ambitions—and powerful temptations and opposition that must be overcome. Their stories are amazing and yet familiar enough to motivate us to live more beautiful lives. In this telling of their story, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the integrated life that every Christian is called to live.
Still, their lives are as different from one another as human lives can be. Dr. Hahn shows the heavenly Church in all its kaleidoscopic diversity—from Moses to Mary, Augustine to Therese, and the first century to the last century.
Only saints will live in heaven. We need to be more like the saints if we want to live in heaven someday. Dr. Hahn shows us that our heavenly life can begin now.
