so that people can understand the Cross.

These are Bible Studies I've written in service of Reading University Christian Union and Surrey University Christian Union between 2003-2007.
They're written on the conviction that the word of God is living and active, capable of destroying nations, of creating universes, of awakening the soul, of raising the dead, of exposing motives and of causing God-glorifying transformation. To come to the word of God to simply learn is to miss the point. We come to taste and see that which is more precious than gold. Come and gaze on glory!
Undoubtedly they're not the best studies the world has ever seen, but if they can be of some service to the wider church then that's great. They're not really designed to be used straight off the page, but intentionally written to require some extra preparation by the leader. They're a tool to lead you to worship Jesus in his word. Feel free to edit and adapt but not sell them.

Help Wanted: BeginningWithMoses.org is almost five years old. It's a labour of love for us that we keep going in our spare time. Technically speaking the whole thing is getting a bit unwieldy. We're looking for someone who shares our passion for Biblical Theology who has the ability to give us a technical refit and get the site properly databased and more accessible, for no cost. If that's you, get in touch. Email Dave

Talking about The Cross at The Coffee Bible Club...
"Penal substitution has to be "central" for me because I read my bible. That may sound like a ridiculously blank statement, so I'll explain what I mean... I don't think that penal substitution normally gets pushed out of the picture on its own. What normally happens is that parts of God's character get pushed out of the picture. This particularly happens when the story of the Old Testament gets sidelined."

Adrian Warnock reports on a major split in UK evangelicalism - Keswick & UCCF forced to go separate ways from Spring Harvest... and the issue is crucial - it's the Cross.

(1) Preaching through the books of the Bible, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, respects and reflects God’s authorship. God did not gives us a book of quotable quotes, nor a dictionary of useful texts, nor an anthology of inspiring ideas. When God caused the Scriptures to be written the medium that he used was that of books of the Bible. If that was good enough for the author it should be good enough for the preacher.
(2)Expository Preaching reflects God’s respect for human authors. One of the most beautiful features of the Bible is the way in which God causes his truth to be written and yet does not over-ride the individual writer, but respects their place in history, their vocabulary, their spoken and literary style. If God is so careful to respect the human authors of the Scriptures we should endeavour to do the same by reading, studying, preaching and teaching their books in the order in the way in they wrote them.

Mark Meynell writes: "Living outside the UK at the time of the publication of The Lost Message of Jesus1 meant I was largely unaware of most of the heat and sadly often harsh words which it provoked on all sides. The book caused controversy, and, in many ways, rightly so. One of the difficulties, however, is that Chalke and Mann’s rather inflammatory discussion of the atonement forms only a small, although perhaps highly indicative, part of the book. That can detract from the number of valid points they make. Nevertheless, because their treatment of the atonement has resonated with what a number of other scholars have been saying (especially in the USA but in the UK as well), it is important that we reflect not only on what they are saying but also (more importantly) why they are saying it..."

So... firstly, sorry that the March update hasn't materialised. BeginningWithMoses.org is a project we work on in our spare time and we just didn't quite have enough of that this month... not least because of a major computer failure... Anyways, enough excuses.
Here's the second thing... we're delighted to announce that we've secured a special deal with IVP for the new book, Pierced for our Transgressions which aims to recover the glorious doctrine of penal substitution. That'll be available along with a load of high quality articles about the cross from April 1st.
The book is available now from IVP for £16.99 but in our deal it'll be a mere £12.99 (UK inc. p&p) or £15.99 (international, inc p&p). We can't take orders before April 1st. So check back then for details!
