There are numerous passages in the Bible that are odd, confusing, or downright weird. Often, these passages occur at the intersection of our world and the supernatural. Our modern viewpoint has taught us to ignore or gloss over these difficult or troublesome passages of Scripture. But how would our understanding of the Bible change if this unseen realm was suddenly revealed to us?
With July winding down, you’re running out of time to equip yourself with great resources during the Lexham Press Summer Sale. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get incredible deals on all the right resources for whatever you’re studying.
Whether you’re a pastor, a student, or just someone who is serious about their Bible study, there’s a great deal for you.
Pastors have an incredible number of job duties to perform. It’s amazing they find the time to juggle ministering to their congregation, meetings with staff and administrative work, and sermon prep every single week. Thom Rainer of LifeWay recently completed a large poll of pastors in the U.S. regarding sermon-prep time, a responsibility that is often invisible to typical church members. According to his results, the median sermon-prep time is 13 hours per week!
During the summer, church life slows down. Many small groups go on hiatus, and schedules fill up with travel plans and other adventures. During this downturn, pastors and ministers look forward to fall and winter when things start to pick up again. Summer is the perfect time for long-term planning—including your preaching ministry.
Are you looking forward to the next ministry season? The Lexham Press Preaching & Teaching Bundle includes 40 practical resources focused on sharing God’s Word with others. Built for pastors, teachers, and other ministry leaders, this bundle has everything you need to make your teaching more efficient and more effective.
With this bundle, you’ll save 60% off what you would have spent to purchase all the titles individually. And if you preach or teach in the church, you’ll find these volumes to be invaluable as you study, prepare, and present your lessons.
Summer is upon us, and that means it’s time to hike, camp, swim, and enjoy the great outdoors. I just recently got back from climbing Mt. Baker, and to prepare for that excursion, I had to have all the right equipment. Backpack, boots, rope, crampons, clothing, food—all in all I was carrying over 40 lbs of gear up the mountain. I wouldn’t have been able to successfully make it up the mountain without all of it.
Sometimes, our Bible study can feel like climbing a mountain—there’s just so much to learn, to read, and to process. Whether you’re a pastor, a student, or just someone who is serious about their Bible study, Lexham Press is committed to helping you study the Bible, better. And during the Lexham Press Summer Sale, you’ll get incredible deals on all the right resources for whatever you’re studying.

There is great significance to words—not only what is said but how it’s said. We often choose to say something a certain way for emphasis, to direct the conversation, or to better communicate our point. We don’t overtly think about these devices, but they’re incredibly important if we want to fully understand what is being said. There is a deep connection between the feelings of the heart and the words of our mouth. Our innermost feelings often find a way to be vocalized, whether we mean it or not. The connection between the tongue and the heart is a major theme in the book of James. In this excerpt from High Definition Commentary: James, Steve Runge shows how James emphasizes the power of our words—and draws out the implications for our digitized world.
